Enjoy space and privacy...
- Condominium style accommodations provide ample space for enjoyment. At Spinnaker, most units have spacious kitchen areas, private bedroom and bathroom areas; separate living and dining areas and walk outs to private balconies or decks. There is room for you, your family, and/or friends to spread out and relax.
Expect resort-like amenities...
- Enjoy more on-site amenities and privileges at most timeshare resorts vs. what's available at hotels. Pools, children's pools, hot tubs, outdoor BBQ areas, Activities programs and in some cases golf and tennis privileges are common Spinnaker features that enhance your overall vacation experience.
Enjoy vacation flexibility...
- Decide when and where you'd like to vacation. As vacation needs change over time, you can customize your vacations accordingly. If you purchase "float" vacation time, you can vacation anytime within that block of time.
- Owner / Members of Spinnaker Flexible Ownership (SFO) can choose to vacation at any of three Hilton Head locations, and each year can plan their vacations when they want them.
- Spinnaker Premier Members can purchase vacation time at any of the three Premier properties and exchange to either of the other two participating Premier properties.
Your Next Vacation Could Save Your Life
"Research suggests that vacations can reduce the risk of heart disease, depression, and a host of other ills - and even slow the aging process."
"Choose a resort or cruise over a cabin in the woods: We might crave time alone, but making new acquaintances has been shown to increase the restorative power of a vacation. So go ahead and attend the manager's cocktail party - it's good for you."
"Keep it warm and light: We don't need scientific research to figure this one out, but studies confirm that, in general, staying in a sunny destination provides greater health benefits than staying in one that has shorter days."
