Hilton Head in the off season offers more bang for your buck, with villas big enough for the while family starting at $159/night! My family and I are going to spend some time in Hilton Head next month, taking advantage of beautiful weather, small crowds, and ALL the food. All of it.
Though Hilton Head Island can be a bit expensive during the summer, it is rather economical in the off season, and that includes during Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Maybe it’s time for a new holiday tradition! I know it’s time for a new one for us.
From October 2014-March 2015, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, one of the biggest resorts on the island, offers rates starting at $159/night — and not for a traditional hotel room, but rather a full villa with many of the amenities of home. Those prices also stay the same during Thanksgiving or Christmas if you’re looking to spend your holidays beachfront. Palmetto Dunes was named one of the top 25 World’s Best Family Getaways by Travel + Leisure in 2013, so visitors can expect luxury combined with family-friendly amenities. It’s the best of both worlds!
Starting at $159/night, guests receive a resort view villa with:
- 2 bedrooms
- 2 baths
- Full kitchen and dining area
- Wireless Internet access
- 2 hours tennis court time daily
- 20% off resort dining and select retail stores with charging privileges
- Preferred rates and priority access for the resort’s 3 championship golf courses and lessons, tennis clinics, bike rentals, kayak rentals, fishing charters and more
- Select dog-friendly rentals
Many villas also offer pools, gyms, elevators and screened porches or balconies. Additional bedrooms and ocean views are available for a higher starting rate. Go ahead and invite the grandparents and bring the whole family for a special holiday get together!
