"You can leave the island but you can't leave my heart / 'cause this memory remains / Of the moonlit nights / When the stars were high / We could see Savannah shine across the waves / We could dance along the shore / And take our time for more." (Edwin McCain, “Island Song”)
A lot happens in the small space (just over 40 square miles) that makes up Hilton Head Island. Located 20 miles north of Savannah, GA, and 95 miles south of Charleston, SC, Hilton Head is a perfect example of a low country resort town, where the best kind of money is old money, and you better bring plenty with you if you plan on coming. People live to play here -- whether it's a round of golf, a game of tennis, or any number of the water activities available. The Southern drawl here is as thick as the air in August. It's a popular vacation spot, and the population can swell from an off-season 38,000 to more than 275,000 during the summer months. See more
Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Hilton Head Island renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.
However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.
Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.
It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.
Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.
However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
