In this economy, doesn’t it make more sense to rock the budget items when you can, and be proud of them?
For that quick cheap escape before Labor Day, I found this cute two-bedroom, two-bathroom Hilton Head villa. I’m pretty impressed at the sticker price: $625 for a week before Sept. 6 and $475 a week before Oct. 31. If you and three girlfriends got together, that would be $156 a head and $118 a head respectively. Even for families on a strict financial diet, that’s a good deal. I’ve had massages priced more than that.
The vacation condo, which sports a full kitchen, one queen bed, two twins and a sofa sleeper, towers on one of the top floors of the complex, overlooking salt marshes and the Atlantic Ocean. If you’re all beached out, grab a chaise by one of three pools. A restaurant and quick-stop store, also poolside, satisfies last-minute munchies and the need for suntan lotion.
Amy, an Atlantan who stayed there in May, also pointed to several restaurants and a grocery store nearby. She was also pleased with the family friendliness of the place and the fact that the beach wasn’t overcrowded.

Here's hoping she finds you the vacation you deserve.
