Planning a vacation can feel overwhelming at first, but taking it step by step helps you choose the perfect vacation rental for your next Hilton Head Island vacation. Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort made choosing your next Hilton Head villa and home vacation rental simple with this 7 Step Process below. 

Step 1: When to arrive

The busiest day for check-in is Saturday, because all oceanfront rentals and many homes require that day seasonally. Take a look at alternate dates to start your vacation, and consider a resort view villa instead. Browse resort view villas. 

Step 2: Length of stay
