123 Apartments for rent in Hilton Head Island, SC with Parking
"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
Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Hilton Head Island apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.
Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.
Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.
If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.
Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.
Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.
Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
