The property met or exceeded our expectations. Incredible view as promised from the web listing.
"We arrived to find the condominium prepared for our arrival. The views from the floor to ceiling living room windows was incredible. From it we watched a pod of dolphins frolicking and feeding near the shrimpers that frequented the horizon. The furnishings were excellent and it was great to have bath sheets and good linens instead of the standard fair offered at the resort. The Shipwatch Villas are located such that this property had a view to the east, up the beach. Access to the beach was easy and with our visit being in November we had the beach nearly to ourselves, despite the good weather. We recommend this property to any couple looking for a romantic setting and privacy. The property was clean and well maintained. Shawn and Jeanette provided us with recommendations for dinner, shopping and even recipes for low country cooking. When in Kiawah again, we will definitely try to book this specific property!"

"We just got back from our fourth visit to Kiawah Island. I spent a great deal of time reviewing all of the VRBO listings available, including listed amenities, traveler reviews and of course location on the island. We were most impressed with EVERYTHING about the cottage, including the management style of Susie, property manager. I had asked Susie about the most recent review describing the condition of the master bedroom mattress. Not only did she promise to check w/ the cottage owner about the possibility of purchasing a new mattress prior to our arrival, but she and the owner made it happen in less than two weeks. We were very impressed, to say the least.
Now, as far as our vacation week went, we were wonderfully pleased w/ the entire week. Because of the gas grill being available on the "bumped out" aka larger deck, we enjoyed grilling out for the first time on one of our trips. Incidentally, not a lot of listings feature their own grill on their property. The kitchen is completely outfitted for every type of meal and because of the quality of the appliances, dishes came out clean the first time, a larger load of laundry could be completed and the double sided refrigerator with an icemaker could store all of our fresh groceries w/ ease.
The cottage was clean and tastefully decorated. The televisions were high quality and easy to navigate. Both bathrooms were well stocked w/ plenty of towels, too. Enjoying the view of the lagoon on the deck was a relaxing plus and the neighborhood itself was peaceful. The beach and neighborhood pool were close by and easy to get to via our rented bicycles. All in all, we highly recommend this VRBO listing and will definitely follow up with Susie and her team in the future. Thank you for helping us have a fantastic week!"

"My husband, 7 year old son and I stayed in the villa for one week. We loved it. Very clean and we had enough space. We brought our bikes, but you can easily rent them. There were tons of bike racks within steps of the villa. We rode on the beach and all around the island. Beach was so easy to walk too. Took less than 4 minutes for us to walk out villa and hit the sand. Nice path to follow so we could use our beach cart. Surf was great and our 7 year old loved riding the waves on his boogie board. Was happily surprised at how quite the villa was. We couldn't hear the next door neighbors whom had 2 little kids. (Just happened to bump into them on the landing one day). Owners were so helpful and quick to respond. Beautiful enchanting villa and island!"

"We live in upstate New York and visit South Carolina every Spring. Our kids are older now and we decided to go a little later, the first week of June and try a new destination in SC which took us to Kiawah Island. I had never used VRBO in the past, I started looking for places and the same realtor came up over several places. I sent her a lot of emails, she responded to every one even at 11pm at night. While I loved the places I found, we needed something a little bigger and Susie Oringel was awesome in finding the perfect place. I would go thru Susie again in a minute. Kiawah Island was beautiful, our place and the weather were beautiful. I also highly recommend the bike rental. Awesome vacation.,,,,"
