Since the advent of the hybrid workplace, the home office movement has taken hold and changed the way that many contractors, corporate workers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners get work done. While working remotely certainly has its benefits, many professionals are beginning to find that spending 40 hours or more a week in a home office isn't the best choice. According to the INAA, working remotely can blur the line between professional working environments and a person's personal life.
As it turns out, having a dedicated, safe space to work privately or collaborate with others can boost efficiency and increase morale. Working in an office environment with readily-available resources like printers and meeting rooms makes accomplishing tasks and making progress much more manageable. For business owners and startups, the prospect of being unproductive at home just won't cut it.
That's where The Runway's co-working space comes into play.
A new take on the modern-day office, co-working spaces give individuals, entrepreneurs, startups, and business owners access to private desks, office resources, inclusive amenities, and exclusive perks. Imagine a purpose-built space filled with hardworking professionals, all employed by different organizations with different goals and tasks. The building has many different rooms, from communal areas with shared workspaces to large, private offices with frosted glass. Here, workers from every background can network with like-minded colleagues while having a dedicated place to work and collaborate.
From exciting startups owners working seven days a week to individuals needing a quiet place to do research, co-working office spaces offer help provide:

Don't need to spend much time at The Runway? With our day pass, you can enjoy access at any time of day to our state-of-the-art lobby, conference room with frosted privacy glass, and convenient business center with printing and scanning. Relax in our fully-stocked Pilot's Lounge or get straight to work at the high tops.
Sometimes you need a clean, impressive meeting room for those big clients, but you don't want to sign a monthly contract. We get it! Our meeting room rental options are fully equipped for modern meetings with plenty of seating, privacy glass, high-speed internet, natural light, flat-screen TVs, and more. This option allows you to impress your business partners or guests without breaking the bank.
Our hot-desk options are perfect for individuals who may only need to use our co-working space a few times a week. Members can choose from a part-time hot desk with three days per week access or a full-time hot desk with five days per week access. Unlike our day passes, our hot desk rental options include access to the Pilot's Lounge and Conference Room.
Renters can also enjoy access to our state-of-the-art lobby any time of day, conference room with frosted privacy glass, and convenient business center with printing and scanning. When it's time to take a break, relax in our fully-stocked Pilot's Lounge before you get back to work.

If having a private desk to yourself is non-negotiable, The Runway has plenty of options for you to consider. Our private desks are an affordable solution for anyone who wants a budget-friendly option and requires a private space.

It's all included in your monthly rate!
Whether you're working on a top-secret digital marketing campaign or you're just an introverted professional, our private office rentals are for you.

If you're looking for an alternative to the premium pricing found in most office parks and corporate centers, consider this option.
If you're like many of our clients at The Runway, you're probably wondering, "Why should I choose a co-working space in Hilton Head Island, SC, near me instead of a traditional office space?"
The truth is co-working spaces with flexible workplace options have drastically changed the way professionals work. Over the last few years, more self-employed business owners and companies have taken advantage of the savings and convenience co-working spaces offer. In the past, the only options on the table were limited by nature, at rates that seemed ridiculous, even for major companies.
On the other hand, co-working spaces offer professionals the chance to move right away to a fully-functioning, comfortable workspace in a business-centric part of town. Unlike traditional office space rentals, The Runway provides you with everything you need to be successful and grow your business, whether you're a sole proprietor or have several employees.
With a properly equipped co-working space, you can focus on accomplishing your goals and finishing your day-to-day tasks without the headaches of moving into and maintaining an expensive office. Co-working spaces offered by The Runway provide:
On the other hand, traditional office spaces often feature:
With the growing popularity of office rooms for rent in Hilton Head Island, SC, many types of businesses and people are inhabiting these spaces, from popular companies to self-starters and everyone in between. Here is a quick glance at some of the most common professionals using The Runway's co-working office space.
Yes, you read that correctly. Remote work is often associated with Zoom calls and home offices, but remote employees can benefit greatly from co-working offices. Most remotely-employed workers enjoy having more freedom but want to use it responsibly. They choose co-working spaces because, unlike working from home, they benefit from socialization, structure, and the ability to brainstorm with others.
As is the case with remote workers, freelancing doesn't inherently mean you have a dedicated workspace or home office. Since having a home office isn't always a guarantee, we find that many freelancers flourish at The Runway. Even freelancers who have home offices often prefer to work in a more structured environment to reduce distractions and downtime. For hardworking freelancers, co-working spaces present an opportunity for more productivity and career progress. When you add access to client meeting rooms, printers, scanners, free Wi-Fi, and even a business mailing address, co-working offices are often no-brainers for freelancers.
Especially in the early stages of growth, entrepreneurs need a dedicated, productive space to grow their business and determine the next steps to success. Depending on the industry, entrepreneurial work can quickly clutter your personal space, both physically at home and mentally, in your head. That's often the first reason why entrepreneurs flock to co-working spaces â they're away from home, where they're more inclined to relax and be unproductive. Whether you're looking for a private office or simply a desk where you can work away from home, The Runway is the solution you need.
A co-working space for startups in Hilton Head Island, SC, is a great idea because it provides a central location for full-time work, office meetings, and more. Startups are often defined by a team's ability to come together, brainstorm, produce a product, and fill a need. With The Runway's co-working office for startups, you can do exactly that.
Plus, having a co-working office space for a startup team saves money. If you've ever had the chance to grow a company from the ground up, you know first-hand how important budgets are for your business. When you rent from The Runway, you won't have to worry about expenses like management fees, insurance, power, internet, reinstatement fees, and other overhead costs.
If you own or manage a small to mid-size business, you know how expensive office space is in Hilton Head Island. As is the case with startups, many businesses use The Runway's private meeting rooms and offices to conduct business at a fraction of the cost of a traditional office. Plus, they use the space to connect with other businesses, professionals, and freelancers who often become valuable resources. As an added bonus, co-working spaces like those at The Runway have been shown to boost morale and provide a sense of camaraderie, collaboration, and community.
Co-working and shared workspaces from The Runway are cost-effective, convenient, and full of value for hardworking people looking to get ahead. Though co-working offices have grown in popularity, with approximately 24,000 locations globally, they're still a mystery to many. If you still have questions, we invite you to contact our office today to learn more about The Runway. Until we speak, here are just a few of the most frequently asked questions we encounter.
Q. Do co-working spaces actually work? My friend uses a desk from The Runway and swears by it, but I'm not convinced.

A man visiting Hilton Head Island with his family captured cellphone video of an alligator charging at a fisherman. It happened at Shipyard Tuesday evening."It was about Tuesday night around 7 o'clock. My wife and three kids decided to go for a bike ride," said Micah Kimberlin, who recorded the video.

A man visiting Hilton Head Island with his family captured cellphone video of an alligator charging at a fisherman. It happened at Shipyard Tuesday evening.
"It was about Tuesday night around 7 o'clock. My wife and three kids decided to go for a bike ride," said Micah Kimberlin, who recorded the video. "We came across a couple people standing [near a pond] and then we see an alligator...this gentleman is fishing kind of far away and it's headed directly towards him. That's when I started filming this alligator heading toward him."
Watch the video below
The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources said it is likely that the alligator associated humans with food.
"My opinion is it was probably an alligator that has been fed," said Morgan Hart, alligator project coordinator for SCDNR. "It has learned that people fishing there have given it food in the past. It is very hard to unteach an alligator that people mean food."
Hart said if you're ever fishing in a pond with a gator, you should keep your distance.
"If you're seeing alligators, they're approaching you, they're interested in your bait, your line, your bobber, you should pull all that gear out, step away, give them time to move on," she said.
Host of The Outdoorsman, Buck McNeely, said ultimately, you never want to get too close to a gator or attract its attention as it could quickly end in tragedy.
"To an alligator, everything is fair game. Everybody is in the food chain," McNeely said.
Kimberlin's brother-in-law captured a photo of crews removing alligators from the pond where all this happened Thursday morning.
SCDNR now wants to remind everyone that a fed gator is a dead gator.
"Once an alligator learns to approach people for food, that is a dangerous animal that has to be removed," Hart said.
WJCL 22 News has reached out to Shipyard for a comment. They said they had nothing additional to add.
Kimberlin said he does wish the fisherman in the video had reeled in his bait sooner than he did.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (WTGS) — As Idalia continues making its way toward Florida's coast, those on Hilton Head Island are ramping up preparations for impacts to come.
Hilton Head safety and emergency officials gathered at the island's fire rescue headquarters Tuesday afternoon to urge residents not to underestimate the incoming storm.
"I think that the keyword is: don't get complacent. The track of the storm, and the models are coming together. It's coming here. We are going to get impacted to some degree," said emergency manager Tom Dunn.
Fire Captain Chris Blankenship said it's all hands on deck and that they will have increased staff throughout the 24-hour period of the storm.
He said they will have fire engines, medic teams, and cut teams to address fallen trees but will stop sending those first responders out if winds reach 65 miles per hour.
"I think we are expecting a lot of trees to fall, especially with the rains this morning," said Blankenship. "With the ground saturated as those winds pick up, we will see trees fall across roadways, hopefully not, but onto houses."
Mayor Alan Perry said previous storms have taught them how devastating mass amounts of rain can be to those living on an island.
He said 2017's Hurricane Irma left many with their homes underwater, and they don't want to see that happen again.
"It is really important, especially tomorrow night, Wednesday night, around ten o'clock when we are experiencing king tides, and we are expecting a surge 2-4 feet above that. That is a lot of water, and we have to make certain we are not on the roads, not in the way, not out there putting ourselves in danger," Perry said.
Perry added that residents should stay inside throughout the storm and, in true island fashion, help keep an eye out for their neighbors if they are in need.
"If you've got yourself taken care of, then you can help out others, and it really is important not to be a sight-seer tomorrow night. Stay home, stay safe, and be ready to help out those who need help," said Perry.
Island officials say the town has no authority over the Hilton Head Bridge, but residents should avoid crossing if winds are over 35 miles per hour.
Hilton Head Island emergency officials urge residents to avoid using social media for safety information and instead check official sources like local government and emergency agencies.

Have you visited Hilton Head Island before?
Whether you’re a long-time local, summer vacationer or part-time resident, you may believe that you’ve seen everything there is to see on the island. But, is that actually true? Hilton Head has several surprising treasures that not many know exist through simple online searches.
Known as a popular tourist destination and ‘world’s best’ winner several times over, Hilton Head Island has its fair share of well-known, popular attractions and ‘must do’ activities that almost anyone who frequents the island knows about.
Such attractions and activities include the island’s famed 12 miles of white sand beaches, world-class golf courses, the Harbour Town Lighthouse, dolphin cruises, Hilton Head’s own resident mermaid, Salty Dog Cafe, Coligny Plaza, and Shelter Cove’s Neptune.
However, if you’re curious about some of Hilton Head’s lesser known attractions and sights, here’s a list of six you can visit this year.
Placed just off the side of the road, you may have inherently acknowledged or even knowingly noticed this sight without ever giving it much thought.
Located on the south end of the island on Pope Avenue nearly halfway to Coligny Plaza, this hidden statue is a token toward part of the island’s history, especially to the Sea Pines resort community.
Charles Fraser, the man behind much of Hilton Head Island’s story, advocated to keep the island’s flora and fauna to preserve the natural beauty of Hilton Head as he worked to develop the resort destination.
A statue of Fraser walking beside an alligator can be found in Compass Rose Park , which is a small, quiet park dedicated to remembering the island’s unique history. It includes art, water features and covered plazas.
Also known as the Leamington Lighthouse, the Hilton Head Island Rear Range Lighthouse is located in the Leamington community of the Palmetto Dunes Resort on Hilton Head Island. This lighthouse can be entered through Palmetto Dunes, is free to visit and can be found between the 5th and 15th greens of the Arthur Hills Golf Course. For your visit, it’s important to note that passes are not given after 5 p.m. and motorcycles are not allowed in Palmetto Dunes.
The inside of this lighthouse is closed and no longer allows entry. However, it is featured on the National Register of Historic Places and is part of the Inventory of Historic Light Stations. Additionally, visitors can get their U.S. Lighthouse Society Passport Book stamped at three different nearby locations. These include the Arthur Hills Pro Shop, Palmetto Dunes General Store and the Palmetto Dunes Welcome Center.
This lighthouse is considered to be “the one true lighthouse” of Hilton Head Island, according to the lighthouse’s website, the only historic lighthouse of Hilton Head and one of only a handful of surviving lighthouses in the state of South Carolina.
However, at the moment, the lighthouse is currently closed to visitors due to a golf course project, but is expected to reopen on Aug. 27.
The Audubon Newhall Preserve is a great place to observe and be surrounded by nature in a less populated area of the island.
The preserve is open daily from sunrise to sunset and has free guided tours led by a Master Birder every Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. No reservations are required to be placed in advance. Parking is available to the public and the preserve is dog-friendly as long as pets remain leashed and are picked up after.
The Audubon Newhall Preserve is a 50-acre nature preserve with over 140 recorded bird species on the south end of the island with interconnected trails that add up to around a mile total with wide paths and an observation deck.
The preserve is located at 55 Palmetto Bay Road, which can be found on the south end of Hilton Head Island. It is owned and operated by the Hilton Head Island Audubon Society.
The Stoney-Baynard ruins on Hilton Head’s south end is a sight to see for any history buff scouring the area. Located in the resort community of Sea Pines, visitors can still see bits of the old home to this day.
The mansion was one used as quarters for Federal forces and was later burned down, allegedly by Confederate arsonists, and the mansion’s tabby foundation, a corner wall, and the foundations of other outbuildings are what remain. These ruins are listed on the National Register of Historic Places list.
Today, the ruins are located off of Plantation Drive in Sea Pines. Baynard Ruins Park is on the right just after passing Baynard Cove Road and Marsh Drive.
Historic Mitchelville Freedom Park, located on Hilton Head Island’s north end at 40 Harriet Tubman Way, is a place of historical significance and is the location of the first freedmen community established during the Civil War.
The park features interpretive signs for visitors to learn from as well as beach access, walking trails, an observation gazebo, historic exhibits and a picnic pavilion. In addition, the island’s Historic Mitchelville Freedom Park is one of 26 sites in the state of South Carolina that is recognized on the Reconstruction Era National Historic Network.
Visitors may go on a self-guided tour of the land or a private tour on select dates and several programs and events take place in the area.
Located within the Sea Pines community on the south end of Hilton Head Island, the forest preserve may come as a surprise to many who view the island’s southernmost end as a shopping, dining and golfing destination nestled throughout winding neighborhoods and between the South Beach Marina and Harbour Town.
The preserve has been a protected area for wildlife, their inhabitants and guests to explore the outdoors since 1970 and encompasses 605 acres of natural flora and fauna. The Sea Pines Forest Preserve includes boardwalks over wetlands, pathways suitable for horseback riding, fishing docks and bridges.
The preserve is open from sunrise to sunset. Guests looking to explore the area will have to pay a $9 gate fee into Sea Pines, unless they hold a resident or guest pass.

If you are planning a visit to Hilton Head, indoor activities may not have been on your to-do list. But, when it’s too hot or rainy, having a backup to the beach is always a good idea. Here’s a list of things to do indoors from KAG’s Kristina Hernandez.
When it rains, it pours on Hilton Head Island. The island usually has pretty good weather because of the Gulf Stream just outside the island that pushes storms off it inland. But other times, well, you need to find entertainment indoors because the downpours are pretty epic and there’s no way to enjoy anything outside.
But there are quite a few fun Hilton Head indoor activities and things to do if you’re on vacation and it’s raining. From painting your own pottery to playing skeeball and bowling to visiting free museums and learning about the local environment, this list has you covered!
During your vacation to Hilton Head, indoor activities are inevitable for a least some of the day. Arcades are the fix! While Adventure Cove has two great mini-golf courses, they also have a fantastic indoor arcade that has tons of games, including my favorite: skeeball! I may have sneakily grabbed a few tokens from my kids to play that game.
We were lucky and won 500 tickets on one of the games so my kids were thrilled when they got to choose two little unicorns from the prize table. We only planned on spending maybe an hour here but ended up leaving after almost three hours because it was so much fun!
18 Folly Field Road, Hilton Head Island, SC843.842.9990
My kids (ages 8 and 5) absolutely loved this hands-on children’s museum right in the heart of the island. Everything about The Sandbox invites children to use their imaginations and play freely. With two floors of more than 11 hands-on exhibits, plan to spend at least a couple hours here, perfect for a rainy day. They also have free family fun nights in the spring, fall, and winter and Parents Night Out during the summer months.
80 Nassau Street, Hilton Head, SC843.842.7645
The owners of Rockfish Restaurant and the Art Cafe came up with the genius idea of Kids Night Out so parents could have a date night at the restaurant while kids painted pottery upstairs and had dinner at The Art Cafe. We tried Kids Night Out and it was a huge hit. They even got dinner and ice cream while painting their pottery. You can also just go and paint pottery with your family there on a rainy day!
5 Lagoon Road, Hilton Head Island
I visited the Coastal Discovery Museum at the end of our trip but I’d recommend visiting instead at the beginning because you can learn all about the local ecosystem and what you will be seeing on the island. They have a kid’s room with an adorable replica of a loggerhead turtle nest plus books, educational toys, and fish tanks.
There is an enclosed butterfly garden that is freestanding and you can see the cocoons of various species of butterflies. There is a beautiful walking path that goes into the adjoining marsh, lined with oak trees and Spanish moss. Admission is free but they have several tours and events, like a Meet the Critters for kids, that do have fees associated.
70 Honey Horn Drive, Hilton Head Island843.689.6767
This is off HHI but nearby and a fun experience as it’s the only kazoo factory that imprints kazoos (like for companies, events, fundraisers) and one of only two in the entire country. They make around 5,000 kazoos per day!
You can take a tour of the factory and then make your own kazoo. This is a unique opportunity to learn about the instrument that dates before the First World War. The tour is really neat – they show you all kinds of different kazoos and whistles (my kids loved this part) and a short video about the history of kazoos. Then you get to see the inside of the small factory and then, of course, make your own kazoo.
12, 4290, John Galt Rd, Beaufort$14.50/adult, $11.50/kids, ages 3 and under are freeTours are Monday-Friday 10 am, 11 am, 1 pm, and 2 pm
You could do this place and Kazoobie Kazoos on one rainy day as they aren’t far from each other. The Port Royal Sound Foundation Maritime Aquarium is totally free and sits on the Port Royal Sound and features all kinds of fish, baby alligators, turtles, and a vast amount of really neat history behind the surrounding waters. It’s not that big, which is great for the smaller kids, but is packed with interesting exhibits and a little area where kids can color.
310 Okatie Hwy, OkatieOpen Tuesday-Friday 10 am – 5 pmSaturday 10 am-4 pmFree
Located in Bluffton, just outside HHI, Station 300 is a bowling alley with an arcade and restaurant. If you visit on a rainy day during the summer, don’t forget to sign up for Kids Bowl Free beforehand as they are a participating bowling alley!
