48 Kingston Road, Shipyard Resort

Dock at 48 Kingston

View of Dock Behind Swimming Pool at 48 Kinston


This lovely home nestled within Shipyard Resort  has a gorgeous lagoon view with sundeck on the bank, just past the large swimming pool that’s surrounded by decking, with a gas grill and covered patio dining table (seating for 6).  Phew… did I forget anything?  And that’s just the back yard of this beautifully upgraded home.  Inside, you will be treated to elegant decor, with a delightful cozy, Colonial touch.  Rich textures and colors are off-set by a fresh coat of light yellow paint, white moldings and pillars, and accents that prepare you for the gorgeous swimming pool and surrounding sundeck.  Just take a look here if you don’t believe me.  And if you take a look now and call, you might still get the 20% discount we are offering on the 1st 3 reservations.


Or maybe, you want a high-rise ocean-oriented corner view in Palmetto Dunes for the same 20% off instead?  Then check out the next one…


3427 Villamare, Oceanfront, Palmetto Dunes       

4th Floor at Villamare

Master BR with Stylish Upgrades


This 2 BR, 2 BA 4th floor REMODELED OCEANFRONT  CORNER UNIT, is exactly what you are looking for.  You will love the open floor plan, where the white-tiled kitchen overlooks the living area, right out to the balcony.  My favorite touch is the master bedroom that is accessed through French doors just past the kitchen, which has a private sliding glass door to the balcony, AND  has an en-suite bath, with separate standing shower.  You’ll feel like you’re living like the Romans did back in the day… only without a bunch of people watching while you bathe.  You won’t miss out here, because the guest room has its own private balcony and queen bed and new carpet and furnishings as well, plus a mini fridge!  Can we think of anything else?  Okay, I won’t ask.  Just check out the 20% special.


The Villamare complex, is front and central to all things Palmetto Dunes; swimming pool, new fitness center & sandy beach, Marriott and Hilton Resort Hotels, bike trails, kayak rentals, golf courses, tennis courts… and if you don’t know where to turn, just take a free ride on the Palmetto Dunes Buggy to Shelter Cove Marina where you can shop & dine till you drop, go charter fishing on the Bayrunner Fishing Charter, or simply enjoy seasonal live entertainment and weekly fireworks.



So Many Wonderful New Properties, So Little Time…

       The past few weeks have been fast and furious at the office, trying to keep up with this year’s awesome demand for weekly rentals. In response to this wonderful upswing in reservations, The Vacation Company Guardian Angels and Elves have been out acquiring new, remodeled properties to add to our inventory so that we don’t have to keep saying “Sorry, we’re booked that week,” anymore when the phone rings. 

       You will love the newest members of The Vacation Company family, just as I love writing about them.  All remodeled and enhanced for optimum vacation fun.  Don’t let these get away from you this year, if you’re still debating the summer vacation question.  In fact, we’re so sure you will love these new properties, we’re offering a 20% discount to the first five reservations on each one.  How do you like those apples?  Pretty good apples, right?

         Today, I’m introducing two glorious South Beach winners.  If you want to see ALL the new properties, because you can’t possibly wait until the next property blog report, then check out the new rentals here, and don’t hesitate to call us at 855.845.7018 with any questions.  If you can contain yourself for a few days, the rest of the properties will be highlighted here.

What a Beautiful Day for an Island Penthouse View at SeaCrest

This has been by far one of our better off-seasons, weatherwise, hasn’t it? 

View from SeaCrest Penthouse 5

View from SeaCrest PH 5

 What better way to celebrate such sunny, temperate, days than to introduce a gorgeous new vacation rental atop the popular and scenic, SeaCrest resort in North Forest Beach? For the first time on the rental market, SeaCrest PH 5 (PH stands for PentHouse, just in case you were wondering), is ready for guests. This is a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom stunner completely remodeled and exquisitely appointed.  This fabulous villa has everything from blonde hardwoods and Mexican tiled flooring to antique wall-hangings, to a master bathroom like you’ve never seen (2 private half/baths, 1 with a bidet on either side of the main bathroom, huge tub with jets, and separate large shower, 2 full vanities with sinks, multi-patterned floor tiles and polished brick-tiled countertops… whew! All it needs is a tv and microwave and you could live in it.)
Sprial Staircase
Special – Spiral Stairs to Top-Floor Balcony

The special feature that can’t be topped is a spiral staircase going up to an enormouse private balcony on top of the world.  The view from here and the patio/balcony below (with glass-topped table for al fresco dining), is remarkable.  A grand sweeping look at the ocean just beyond the landscaped grounds below, lagoons with fountains, swimming pools, sand dunes with native Palmetto Trees, and indigenous Sea Oats, will leave you breathless.  The interior has been thoughtfully designed with a touch of safari in some places, and a whole lot of it in others; one guest bedroom will make you feel like you’re waking up in the Serengeti, with leopard print bedding and wrought-iron foot board, distressed wood armoire, and woven grass wallpaper in the bathroom, which also has giraffe masks on the walls and two giraffe statuettes on a shelf.  Fun! Each bedroom is different, so if you prefer a little romance, the next guest room has soft, white bedding, rattan armoire and dried rose bouquet on a side table. The master suite has a lovely sitting area, king bed, and private sliders leading to the balcony.  And, don’t forget the bathroom that you could live in!

Extraordinary New Homes Have Joined Our Hilton Head Collection

         It can be difficult to describe the incredible views, fabulous decor, exquisite design, and amazing refurbishments that have gone into the homes that are in our inventory, but we try every day when talking to you on the phone.  We visit each new property and often come away speechless, wondering how on earth we will convey the beauty of this treasure to our guests on our website, in our catalog, and verbally.  Even photos and videos don’t quite capture the essence of these homes, but that’s all we have to work with, so we do the best we can.
         Every year, we add more glorious vacation home rentals to our stable and attempt to do them justice with words and expressions like, “I’d live there!” or “Perfect! Outstanding! Oh my God!” or, “to die for…” But that’s all we’ve got friends and fellow travelers; the English language, a thesaurus full of proper and cerebral adjectives for Awesome, Cool, and Gnarly, and hi-res pictures to put on our website, Facebook, and YouTube accounts.  For now, I introduce three of our newest homes with a few highlights and ask you to trust me when I say that each of these will live up to your highest expectations.
