Wyndham Vacation Rentals Property Featured in Episode of “Getting Away Together” Television Series on PBS Member Stations

A ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals oceanfront vacation rental home was selected as the host property for an episode of the reality travel series filmed in Hilton Head Island, S.C.

"Getting Away Together" in Hilton Head Island
A luxurious vacation home professionally managed by ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals was cast in a recent episode of the television series “Getting Away Together” filmed in Hilton Head Island, S.C. The episode follows a multigenerational group of 10 women from Philadelphia, Pa. as they experience the natural wonders, culinary delights and upscale resort lifestyle of Hilton Head Island while enjoying accommodations at an oceanfront vacation home.

To find a group of travelers to star in the show, the Hilton Head Island Visitor & Convention Bureau hosted an online casting call asking getaway hopefuls to submit a creative video explaining why their group was most deserving of a Hilton Head Island vacation and an appearance on national television. The winning band consisted of five hard-working mothers, their four teenaged daughters, and “Mimi,” the soft-spoken matriarch of the group.


The “Getting Away Together” reality series focuses on the concept of “togethering.” Togethering is a growing trend in leisure travel in which extended families and other groups build or reestablish meaningful connections by sharing accommodations, taking part in new experiences and building lifelong memories on vacation together.

“This episode of ‘Getting Away Together’ showcases one of our premier oceanfront private homes, which may seem extravagant on the surface,” said Jessica Maples, Marketing Manager, ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, Hilton Head Island. “But when several families share the cost of a multi-bedroom unit, and you take advantage of the savings available through one of ResortQuest’s rental specials, you soon realize that an exceptional vacation rental here on Hilton Head Island is well within your reach.”

ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals professionally manages more than 300 vacation rentals on Hilton Head Island ranging from oceanfront private homes like the one featured in the show to exclusive villas with golf course views. The ResortQuest property where the women stayed during filming showcases a number of key amenities travelers find most appealing in a vacation rental. Multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, a separate living area, a fully equipped kitchen, and a washer and dryer top vacationers’ must-have lists. Other available amenities include private or resort swimming pools, hot tubs, oceanfront locations, tennis or golf access, and outdoor decks with BBQ grills.

Episodes of the 2012 season of “Getting Away Together” are currently airing on select PBS member stations nationwide. The Hilton Head Island episode can also be viewed in its entirety with limited commercial interruption online at GettingAwayTogether.com/destination/hilton-head.
