4. Land ahoy: yacht docked at Shelter Cove Marina

Moored at the picturesque Shelter Cove Marina, this double deck yacht provides for a stay that is both compact and comfortable. The top deck features a cozy sitting area of white leather, perfect for intimate conversations and a few drinks on the deck. Further up on the bow of the boat, those in want of a tan can get their fix of vitamin D on a cushioned sun pad.

Meanwhile, the lounge area of the lower deck provides a similar leather sofa and a mahogany table that folds down to form a sleeping space for two. More sleeping arrangements are located towards the aft (rear) of the vessel, where you will find a bedroom with a queen-sized bed. Throughout the yacht, you will find multiple TVs and DVD players for your entertainment needs. Heating and air-conditioning can be toggled via the on-board thermostat. It’s rather spaceship like! The yacht’s scaled-down kitchenette comes equipped with a coffee maker, microwave, cups, and a sink. With the hosts declaring the on-board toilet off-limits (lest you be charged with a 25 USD servicing fee), guests are expected to use this sink for washing and brushing teeth instead, as well as the expected washing up chores. Restrooms and showers can be found a few minutes’ walk from the boat.

While this may cause some inconvenience, take it in your stride – it adds to the experience, and even further provides a sense of living a sailor’s life!

Being docked near the heart of Hilton Head gives staying on this yacht its advantages, as experiences such as world-class dining, water sports, and shopping are just mere minutes away from the marina. If you’re staying for the summer, spend your Tuesdays on the boat for a firework show that will light up the evening sky!

5. A Hilton homestay: private room in the suburbs

Hilton Head is well known for its eco-friendly urban developments, where buildings and houses are built to accommodate nature as far as they can. Enjoy a unique convergence of suburban and natural tranquillity at this humble vacation rental along Jarvis Creek. Located just off the island’s main highway of Route 278, this Charleston-style home exudes the magic of a treehouse on land. Be greeted by the friendly host, Tara, her son, Eden, and their pets as you begin your stay in this charming residence. On entering the residence, more tranquility awaits – minimalist white walls and ample furniture echo a simpler, yet matching color scheme to the scenery outdoors.

Throughout the first floor, wooden articles complement subdued cushioned seats, along with exotic patterned rugs and calming motifs. Climb the stairs to your bedroom, where white walls and stunning scenery will make you forget any pre-trip woes. Look to the catching crimson placements to ignite the spark of adventure within you. For your comfort, a closet, dresser, and TV are provided as well. After a long day’s adventure, unwind in the bathroom before heading off to bed for a good night’s sleep. Retreat to the backyard terrace, where the true highlight of this residence awaits. From the wooden balcony, admire the scenery of Jarvis Creek’s marsh, just one of the many beautiful marshes Hilton Head is renowned for. Revel in the area’s natural beauty, abounding with lush flora, brackish waters, and exciting local wildlife, or enjoy a cup of Turkish tea with your hosts and get to know about the life of a local.

With the knowledge, friendship, and heartwarming experiences you will gain from this stay, staying at this residence will prove truly worth your while.

Rest, relax, and unwind with a natural, beach-side vibe in the serene, aquatic colors of the bedroom and bathroom.
