Top 12 Airbnbs in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Several years ago, I went on a girls’ weekend getaway to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina with my best friend. Hilton Head Island was a beautiful place to visit, with beaches, amazing restaurants, and high-end shops to browse. There are plenty of luxury, full-service resorts in this area, but you can also book an Airbnb to perhaps save some money or get a more local vibe.

From condos to vacation homes, bungalows, and villas, here are some of the top Airbnbs that are available to book on Hilton Head Island.
