Share Article

ResortQuest Hilton Head has created a unique environment to welcome guests during check-in. Lowcountry and Gullah heritage will be showcased every Saturday during the summer months as the main office is transformed into a tribute to the Island’s rich cultural background. Highlights include local artists, sweet grass basket weavers, Gullah cuisine, storytelling and music.

The tourists will come to the island in droves expecting golf, beach and tennis. ResortQuest Hilton Head has created a memorable way to look beyond the obvious reason why people come to Hilton Head. The ResortQuest Hilton Head location has undergone a renovation to create a lowcountry mecca for the Gullah heritage and historical roots of the region.

Guests will be welcomed by local Gullah artists, singers or storytellers, cuisine and traditional sweet grass basket weavers upon entering to check in to the main office. The Gullah are an African American population of African slave ancestry, their heritage dates back to the mid-1700s and has drawn interest from historians for many years. Living in the low country and sea islands of South Carolina, the Gullah population adhere to living with spirituality, perseverance and tradition.

ResortQuest Hilton Head is celebrating the rich Gullah heritage and culture that first inhabited the Island. Since ResortQuest Hilton Head requires all guests to check-in through on of its two island offices, they were faced with the challenge of creating an enticing locale for guests to enter where the vacation starts even before they get their keys. “Our goal was to celebrate native culture of the island as well as create an exciting and fun place for guest to check-in to” says General Manger Patti Martin.
