Small family vacation / reunion
"We had such a blast in this home so big and spacious. We were just a couple of min bike ride from the ocean and it was right in the lagoon so mad it fun to look for animals in the water at night from deck. There was plenty of space for the three small families who stayed lots of living room space and dinning space. The frig was huge with plenty of room for all the groceries. The high light of the stay was the master sweet and the new bathroom was absolutely mind blowing. We all want to stay again and maybe even next year it was great. Just a reminder you are on the lagoon so there are bugs but we found the best way to keep them out was to keep the screens and deck doors shut good..."

"This was our family's first trip to Kiawah, and I was not sure how getting a rental would be with children ages 2 and 4, plus 6 adults. As soon as we walked into the Flip Flop Inn, my worries vanished. The decor is so homey but beautiful! It felt like the home of a dear friend that you were staying in for the week. My kids loved the small playroom area with toys! I didn't have to bring a single toy with me. The sunroom off the kitchen was our favorite spot to hang out together. The barely 5 minute bike ride/10 min walk to either boardwalks 30 or 31 was a breeze. The updated bathrooms were beautiful, and all of the beds were so comfy. The master bedroom closet was so big, we fit a pack n' play in there and my toddler son had quiet napping spot for the week! This house was a huge bargain for the size. Adults and children both loved the Flip Flop Inn- thank you to Jessica for being so helpful."

"We had the pleasure of renting this lovely home right after Christmas for 4 nights. We were in town working on wedding arrangements for our daughter's upcoming wedding. We also had other family staying nearby. This home was beyond our expectations. We felt so at home- it really is a HOME, not like a rental. It's beautiful enough so you can sit back and appreciate it but homey enough to curl up on the sofa with a good book.
The beds were great (and plentiful) and the linens were really good quality and also plentiful. The kitchen was our gathering place and we cooked great meals in there. Everything we needed was on the premises - even coffee filters.
The view was wonderful. The weather was cool (and we were busy) but we enjoyed the view and did sit out once or twice. There is a world class beach literally a 5 minute stroll from the house. Ample parking too. We truly enjoyed this home and will book it again in the future if it's available. Thanks for your hospitality. ;-)"

"As stated in previous reviews, this home is gorgeous and well planned out! We were not disappointed in any of the rooms. We were traveling with another family and had a total of 4 adults with 5 grown kids (ages 23-18). There was plenty of room for us to do our own things w/o being on top of each other. The kitchen is huge and has all the tools needed for just about anything you want to make. I really like having the Utility Room just off the kitchen w/ beach towels, beach bag, and beach blankets. The only thing we wanted but didn't find was Champagne Flutes, that is something they could add. The beds were all comfortable. Not one single complaint from our 5 kids says it all!!! The fact that every bedroom had its own bathroom made it so easy when we were all getting ready to go out. LOVED having the pool! It was a welcome relief from the hot sun after being at the beach or on a nice bike ride. We have stayed on Kiawah for over 15 years and this place was the best yet, we will definitely be back. Helpful Hint: It is a 10 minute bike ride to the beach, so rent a bike w/ a cart. You can put chairs, coolers, and bags on it. I have to add that my experience dealing with the owner was outstanding, and I can ask a lot of questions! Caroline manages the house and she was just as easy to talk to; checked on us regularly and gave good recommendations. Kiawah and the surrounding area are so much fun theres biking, hiking, beach, wildlife, great restaurants, THE SANCTUARY, & shopping just to name a few, they have it all.
Thank you Yvette for a wonderful place to stay on our family trip!"
