Kiawah Dream Vacation
Kiawah Dream Vacation
First of all, this place is amazing! The house is so nice and the accommodations were beyond my expectations. I came here from Phoenix and really enjoyed the golf and relaxation, but your place was the icing on the cake. A bunch of us came dwn for a golf tournament on Kiawah Island at Oak Point and this is an ideal location. The beds were soft and comfortable and the place felt like home. You have a great TV in the livingroom and a good selection of movies too. The beach is close by and the Cougar course is within walking distance. This vacation site ranks up with the best ones of my life. I am not sure I will share how good it was with my wife and 3 daughters, who didn't come with me, or they will be quite envious! We have been doing an annual trip to Myrtle Beach with a bunch of co-workers for many years, but most of us now want to spend next year here instead.

My girlfriend and I spent a four day weekend at this cottage and found it to be "just what the doctor ordered" in terms of simplicity and yet peaceful. This is my first cottage experience at Kiawah, though I have been to the island dozens of times before. This rental includes a complete kitchen with everything needed, and we certainly used all the appliances, including toast, coffee, microwave bacon, chocolate chip cookies, and a low country boil! We loved your outdoor shower, and the screened porch. There is no TV in the bedroom, which was fine for us, as we fell asleep quickly in the evening. Small kids tend to be on the eastern part of the island, so we had a fairly quiet time. The air conditioning worked well, so we could vary the temperature as needed. Thanks for use of the beach chairs, which we carried behind the bikes on a carrier. We would recommend this cottage to any couple or small family. Thanks guy!!

My family had a wonderful vacation at Kiawah! Your cottage was immaculate and we appreciate the many utensils and beach supplies you made available to us. We enjoyed the walk to the beach each day. What we loved most was how peaceful and quiet it was on Kiawah Island; so relaxing and enjoyable. We would love to return in the future.

A beautiful cottage. This was our 5th vacation on Kiawah and this cottage was the nicest we have stayed in. Kitchen was very well stocked with pots/pans, dishes, BBQ tools etc. We didn't lack for anything. Lots of DVDs & books for a rainy day. The cottage was very clean and very well organized. The owners responded promptly to any questions we had previous to our arrival. Overall it was a great vacation experience. We will definitely book here again.

My wife and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary by spending a week alone at this wonderful cottage. The pictures and description of the home are very accurate. Though the cottages are pretty close to one another you definitely have a feel of privacy and space. The cottage was very clean and neat - with an uncluttered and airy feel. The developers did a great job of building within the natural habitat with lots of trees all around. The location was fabulous for us. 2 minute walk to the pool, 5 minutes to the fabulous uncrowded beach, 5 minutes to a set of shops including a restaurant and ice cream shop, 3 minutes to golf course clubhouse etc. Bicycling on Kiawah is fantastic. Freshfields market which has a great variety of shops and restaurants is a little over 2 miles away via a new bike trail and other restaurants, shops and parks located on Kiawah are an easy and pleasant ride away. Because the island is very flat there are few hills and most of the bike trails are shaded with lots of scenery around every turn. Bring your own bikes or rent them - either way it is a great way to get around. My wife went to the beach every day and we certainly appreciated the owners having beach chairs and other beach equipment available for our use. The outdoor shower is a great amenity - post beach. The fact that there is no development right on the beach on Kiawah makes the beaches themselves seem so much more natural and pleasant. Communication with the owner was quick and pleasant - I would gladly recommend Kiawah and this property to anyone.

Our experience ...
Our experience ...
We stayed here for a week- 3 children and brought our seasoned nanny/housekeeper with us. Very small, somewhat dated- looks like they simply painted to bring it in the 21st century. However albeit small, it was comfortable and allowed for some night time family bonding over boardgames. We spent the majority of our time away from the home during the day, while our nanny helped care for the baby, as well as clean the place daily(mopping/ changing sheets, etc.). We ate one meal (breakfast) in the home and ate out every evening. Upon leaving, we cleaned for over 3 hours- going through an overly extensive list the owner left. Less than a week later we received a threatening email from the woman owner making accusations of a horrible mess we had made and saying she was cashing our deposit check. Her claims are based solely on the complaints coming from a lady that cleans for her. Surprised that she would hide behind an email instead of voicing her opinion via a phone call, we reached out. She told us she was angry over "toothpaste in the sink" as well as other "things"(claims that her maid had told her, which owner never saw herself). She claimed to have pictures of this disaster, which we asked to see... she said she at least "owed us that". However, we never received the damaging evidence(because their was none). At the end of the call, her main complaint was an extra hour of time that her maid spent. Again, this is a tired maid, NOT a professional cleaning service. The owner proceeded to cash the deposit check and has not answered our calls. When I think of the times we'll be going to Kiawah in the future (2 weeks a year), and the tens of thousands of dollars this woman gave up in rental income- in addition to the warnings I'll share with my co-workers and friends, I certainly hope the measly deposit check she is pocketing was worth it. It's not the money that is troublesome. In fact, we stayed an extra day in a club level Suite at the Sanctuary. It's simply being taken advantage of. If you decide not to take this advice, make note of everything, plan on doing a COMPLETE scrub/deep cleaning (not simply cleaning up your remains, wiping counter tops, cleaning out the refrigerator, etc.).... AND still plan to lose your deposit check. Thank you owners for your lack of professional courtesy and putting a damper on what should have been an incredible and memorable week for our family!

Owner response: This family called me on the Thursday before their checkout to ask if they could extend their stay because they were enjoying being at the cottage SO much. We had a great conversation but, its summertime, and new guests were arriving that coming Saturday. So, imagine my surprise when my two wonderful cleaning ladies, that have been with me for over five years, called in utter disbelief at the state of things in the cottage. The phone call that Saturday morning encompassed everything - from the stained couch cushions (I've had them reupholstered), to the utter mess in the kitchen/bedrooms/bathrooms/glass doors smeared with liquid soap (?) . . . . they have never had to call me ever to complain about the condition of the cottage until that departure cleaning. Now, I don't know if the guests left the "nanny" to pick the place up or what, but I did forward pictures to her that were sent to me from my cleaning ladies and I did cash the check with the understanding that a portion of the security check would be returned after "the extra cleaning time" was deducted. The guest was angry and rude and emailed me to not to contact her again and to keep the money; which made no sense because naturally I would have to cash the check in order to collect "a portion" for the above reasons. So, I passed the entire amount on to my cleaning ladies, they probably earned it. I have never had this come up before. I certainly appreciate each and every guest that has ever stayed with us. I replace everything on a regular basis just for the reason of wear and tear and because we love that cottage and enjoy sharing it with families looking for a lovely vacation spot. I think because it is so nice, people do take good care of it. This was a most unfortunate incident and it caused both my cleaning ladies and me much stress; especially after receiving the initial phone call telling me how great and beautiful the cottage was. The guest even said they had friends at another cottage who, when they came by, could not believe how much better their cottage was over the place they had rented. (?) So, disregard her comments totally, I do not know where she is coming from!
Rented this fabulous find in May to share a big birthday with best friends. We were thrilled with the cottage! The online description is more than reliable. Super clean, bright, well thought-through appointments and layout. Everyone loved cooking in the kitchen, flopping in the L/R and dining in the screened porch. Beds were very comfortable, too. It will be a delight to check back in again some day.

My husband and our friends the Westmorelands stayed at the cottage 8/18/07 thru 8/24/07. I must say I was truly impressed! Everything was so clean, organized and very accomodating. The cottage is only 2 minutes from the pool and 5 minutes (walking) to the ocean. Beautiful beaches, with warm water and not crowded. Kiawah Island is a place everyone should visit. Reminds me of Hawaii but with Pine, Oak and Palm trees. Truly a place to relax and have fun. We enjoyed many nights BBQing and having wine. Restaurants at the Sanctuary and different golf courses are very nice and excellent food. Newton Farms grocery store has everything you need from Prime meats, sushi, excellent wine selection and more! Thank you so much for letting us enjoy "a little bit of heaven." We will be BACK!!
