  • Such a lovely place!

    "My friend and I came down to run the Bridge run and get away for a couple days. This place was ideal. The villa is awesome. Current, clean, and perfectly appointed. We could not stop smiling the whole time we were on the island. The ability to use the shuttle service and amenities on the island made our stay luxurious and totally relaxing. Thanks so much and I hope to be back with my family!!!"

  • Everything we wanted

    "We only stayed for three nights but it was a great place for us. Nice location with short walk to a beautiful beech. The unit had everything we needed so we did not have to go out to the store for little things. Very tastefully decorated and wanted to take the granite counters home with us :) Owner was very easy to work with."

  • Super Home for Family Togetherness!

    "This beautiful home (much more than just a house) has everything anyone could ask for and more! Our family of 9 greatly enjoyed our week here, from the comfortable furnishings on the inside, to a well-stock kitchen (we were able to host 6 additional family members for a special dinner for 15 on Sunday), and the lush greenery on the outside (the secluded backyard is so peaceful). The owners were very helpful and quickly responded to our requests, both prior to our visit when we were planning for our vacation as well as when we got here and had a problem with the TV (it was quickly replaced). We highly recommend this home for others, as it is located within a quick walk/bike ride to the ocean. Plus, with 8 bikes in the garage, the beach chairs and beach toys/boards, there is no need to pack all of that or worry about rentals once here. Another awesome perk about this home is the flexibility regarding arrival day. As opposed to many other options which rent Sat-Sat or Sun-Sun, this home has the added benefit of being rented as available, which made a Tues-Tues rental the perfect option for the destination wedding we attended in Charleston on Saturday. A great all around choice! :)"

  • It was wonderful!!!

    "This was such a wonderful home to spend a week in! It was such a relaxing atmosphere. We loved that it is an original beach house so close to the water. It is a beautiful, simple home that had everything we needed and was perfect for us. We can't wait to return!!!"

Kiawah Island Travel Tips

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. Whether you're ready for some high-energy fun while frolicking in the waves or looking for some peace and quiet as you catch up on your reading, there's plenty of beach for everyone to enjoy. 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.

There's also plenty to experience indoors with a variety of dining options to suit all tastes and lovely shops lining the streets where you can enjoy some retail therapy picking out the perfect souvenirs.

- Heron Park Nature Center: Nature is abundant on Kiawah Island and a great place to experience it is at the Heron Park Nature Center. Take yourself on a tour down the miles of trails or set out on a kayak journey through the waters. You're bound to see not only lovely foliage but many animals that call this place home. You can also make reservations for a guided tour like a bird walk, an alligator walk, a butterfly walk and more. Unplug and leave the phone and computers for while to reconnect with nature!

- The Sanctuary Spa: A vacation is the ideal time to really let yourself relax and unwind. What better place to do so than a spa? Give yourself to the ultimate treat to rejuvenate your body and mind. Ease tired, aching muscles with a hot stone, classic or deep tissue massage, or pamper your skin with a facial or body treatment. You can even make an afternoon or day of it with spa medleys that include various different treatments to calm you from head to toe.

- Kiawah Beachwalker Park: The beaches are a must-see on Kiawah Island and Kiawah Beachwalker Park is a great option. You'll find it on the west end of the island, giving you with amazing ocean fronts as well as river views. The park is open year-round and provides picnic areas with grills where you can cook up a delicious meal, and depending on the season, the beach features lifeguards for your safety as well as a snack bar and outdoor showers so you don't have to wander around town full of sand. When the weather is warm, take advantage and jump into the water for a refreshing swim,enjoy a game of frisbee or get creative and building the most interesting sandcastle you can think of.

- Kiawah Island Ocean Course: Ranked the No. 4 public golf course in the U.S. and 25th of the 100 greatest U.S. golf courses by Golf Digest, Kiawah Island Ocean Golf Course is perfect for any golf enthusiast. The course hosted the 2012 PGA Championship, was designed by Pete Dye and spans 2.5 miles of ocean front. The Ocean Course is located in the eastern-most end of the island and all 18 holes offer panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. It's easy to enjoy the beautiful sights as you play.

Dining on Kiawah Island

- Southern Kitchen: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and you'll find a delicious and hearty one at Southern Kitchen. This eatery serves up classic country dishes like biscuits and gravy, chicken and waffles, omelets and a variety of pancakes. There are also lighter options like steel cut oatmeal and smoothies. Top it off with bottomless mimosas or bloody marys to really start the day off right.

- Jasmine Porch Restaurant: This dining establishment was named best down home cookery by Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report, and it's outfitted with Charleston brick and oak-plank floors. Seafood is a highlight here as well as the organic local produce, all of which can be enjoyed under the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean. Chef Ryley McGillis works with local farmers to specially tailor the menus according to the seasons. Try the excellent shrimp and grits or crab bisque.
