Each year Travel+Leisure surveys its readers in an effort to uncover the best of the best-- from spas, to cruises, to island destinations. This year, Hilton Head Island topped its list as ‘Best Island in the Continental U.S.’ Read on to find out why many who frequent the island say it feels like a well-kept secret they fall more in love with during each visit.

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina is known for its tranquil beaches, world-class golfing and watersports from boating to fishing. Located right off the coast near Savannah, this island is secluded and peaceful while still being easily accessible by car.

The island is easy to navigate and features a bevy of paths which make it a 100% bikable island. Everything from casual to upscale dining is readily available on the island and most options boast plentiful fresh seafood.

The island is also home to multiple spas where you can relax and recharge while on vacation. Check out the Seeds of Calm Spa and try one of its many treatments like the very popular Himalayan Sea Salt Scrub. With multiple shopping areas, the retail enthusiast can get a taste for art, jewelry and apparel with a local flair.

With multiple decks, a hot tub and large backyard, this home boasts ample outdoor space for entertaining or soaking up some rays. The home’s spacious design and gourmet kitchen makes it ideal for hosting all the branches of the family tree.

Don't take our word for it- read what our current investors had to say about our home on Hilton Head Island.

"The house in Hilton Head was superb - well stocked and beautifully furnished. The location couldn't be better - out the backdoor to the beach - fabulous! Bikes were rented through the local host who took care of everything including delivery and pickup. I can't wait to go back with more family!" - Investor John R.

"Our entire family voted this trip to Hilton Head as the best one ever. It was everything Equity Estates said it would be and more. The kids really enjoyed the beach, bikes and beautiful home.  No one wanted to come back to Tulsa!" - Investor Diana B.

"We very much enjoyed the Hilton Head property.  In fact, I joked with my wife about making an offer to buy it - really only half joking. It is a perfect home for a beach vacation with the family. While it is close to restaurants and other activities, the real benefit is its superb location on the beach. The layout of the house is also perfect for our needs.  We really enjoy spending the evening in the second floor family room. The two master suites also work well if we have friends join us for a few days. Overall, a great experience as always!" - Investor Andrew R.

"I loved our vacation in Hilton Head so much! I would pack my bags and move there - not just anywhere on the island, but to our EE home. I am not exactly sure why, but Hilton Head is a place I just want to savor. I think I belong there. The "kid" in me still likes to dig up sand dollars, investigate the prehistoric horseshoe crabs, build sand castles . . . the kind of things my grown up playmates just watch me do from the balcony of the home with their glass of wine in their hands. That is what is nice about Hilton Head - everyone can do their own thing." - Investor Jon I.
