Why Drupal Was Chosen 
Drupal was chosen as the platform for Hilton Head Rentals and Golf for several reasons. First and foremost was the capability to integrate a leading vacation rental property management system: RNS. Another important consideration was the ability to leverage the Omega Drupal 7 Base Theme to produce a clean, responsive, customized website that's optimized to convert on desktop/laptop, tablet and mobile devices. In addition, we chose Drupal for its well-defined user roles and permissions functionality. We needed to create specific user roles that would allow content editors to easily update and add content without having the ability to change core configurations and settings. Lastly, the versatility of Drupal views also played an important role in choosing Drupal over another CMS.
Describe the Project (Goals, Requirements, and Outcome) 

Hilton Head Rentals & Golf needed a new site because they wanted not only a revamped web design, but also to provide an optimized experience for cross-platform viewing. With more and more of their site visitors accessing their site from mobile devices, Hilton Head needed a site that could be optimally viewed from any platform.



The primary objective of the site is book vacaction rentals. However, the site also features a wealth of information on Hilton Head water activities, cruises, bike rentals, dining options, golf, tennis, and local events. The overarching goal was to create a website where Hilton Head Island visitors could plan their complete vacation. 

“We focused on creating a site that our customers can use to not only book a vacation home, but also research and plan a trip that incorporates all the wonderful amenities our island has to offer,” said Tom Ridgway, President of Hilton Head Rentals & Golf. “In our ‘Plan A Vacation’ section we put together ideas for different types of vacationers, from families with small children to retired Baby Boomers.”
