About Us | Hilton Head Island Vacation Rentals
Thank you for considering us to manage your investment on Hilton Head Island.
Who We Are
Founded in 1988, the Vacation Company is a short-term rental and property management firm. We manage over 250 quality villas and custom homes located in the resort areas of Hilton Head Island – Palmetto Dunes, Forest Beach, and Sea Pines.
The average rental rate for our 160 villas is $2500 per week and for our 90 homes it is $6200 per week. Our properties and short-term rentals on Hilton Head Island are all ocean-oriented or waterfront in Palmetto Dunes/Shelter Cove, Shipyard, North & South Forest Beach and Sea Pines.
2013 is our 25th year and 21st year under the present owners. The Vacation Company owners, Bob Hawkins and Beth Henzler, are long-time Hilton Head Island residents who head a staff of fifteen reservationists, property managers, IT specialists, as well as marketing personnel dedicated to revenue generation and property care.
Our office is located at 42 New Orleans Road in the midst of the main resort area of southern Hilton Head Island – within five miles of all of our rental properties.
We have a management team for each area of our island. It consists of outside managers trained in minor repairs, pool and AC inspections in addition to being on-site housekeeping monitors.
There is also an inside office property manager for each team. The property managers communicate with each other and directly with homeowners using Blackberries and iphones. Each manager has instant access to our browser-based reservation system with HomeAway, our software provider.
