We've found several nice condos in Hilton Head renting through vrbo.com.

We rented a condo on the beach in Villamare (Palmetto Dunes). What I thought was great about the condo was it had complete privacy for the 2 bedrooms. Each bedroom had it's own balcony with view of the ocean and was separated by the living room, kitchen and dining area. I had really good luck with www.islandgetaway.com. .They have alot of great properties. I have used VRBO.com as well with great luck.

You might consider Daufuskie Island for really upscale accomodations. You can ferry to the island from Savannah or HHI. Here's the url for the resort:


Despite being a separate island, with the ferry, it is convenient to HHI, especially Harbortown.

the best oceanfront condos are in Palmetto dunes;

Barrington, Captains Walk, Hampton, VillaMare, and Windsor

In Sea Pines; Turtle Lane club

In Forest Beach;

SeaCrest Resort and Shorewood

Look for these check with Vacation Company or Island Getaway for commercial rentals or Homeaway.com or vrbo.com for private rentals.

Hotels to consider the Hilton resort or the Westin. The marriott is OK, but the other two are better.

For golf views there are plenty of choices. Nicest in my estimation are Fazio in Palmetto Dunes, Heritage and Plantation Club in SeaPines, and Evian in Shipyard.
