  • Great vacation...

    "This property is unreal! There is nothing you would want for. Loved the location, amenities, details to design and function. However, "Bambi" alluded us all week. She did eat our apples daily...lol. I would recommend this property to any adult couple wanting a perfect get-away. The owner couldn't have been nicer. (So happy we could meet her) Can't wait for my next visit."

  • Excellent Condo

    "My family and I just spent a week on Kiawah. We certainly enjoyed our stay on the island. The condo was very well maintained and stocked with lots of amenities. The owners have taken the time to create a menu book of local restaurants, stock the closets with plenty of beach activities, and provided many board games. You cannot see the beach from the back porch, but we enjoyed the convience of first floor access to the back yard. We even had deer come up to the back deck to eat. The drive to Charleston was quick and easy. We loved the location of this condo and will definitely return!"

  • First time visitors

    "Our first time to the island and we weren't disappointed! The atmosphere on the island was very relaxing and I enjoyed the lack of restaurant chains, big shopping complexes, and heavy traffic. The unit we stayed in was exactly as it appeared on line and the process for renting was very easy. If you are a golfer, bring lots of money....it's fairly pricey for a round of golf but the courses are beautiful. Charleston was an easy drive and a great way to spend the one cloudy day we had. We are looking forward to our next vacation here."

About 21 miles from exciting Charleston is the lovely oasis of Kiawah Island, known for its natural beauty and welcoming hospitality. It's a wonderful spot for a romantic getaway for two or a fun-filled adventure for the whole family.

Golf lovers will find five championship courses on the island, so there's plenty of opportunities to practice your swing and challenge others to a friendly game.

Kiawah Island is also known for its pristine 10 miles of beaches that will make you want to spend as much time as possible soaking up the sun and relaxing in the surf.

The Travel Channel has honored the island as one of the "Top 10 Beaches for Families," while national Geographic Traveler called the island the "Second Most Romantic Beach in America." The rest of the natural scenery is a treat as well, including the maritime forests and marshes where you might catch a glimpse of a turtle, seabird or whitetail deer.
