  • Wonderful Home!

    "Another wonderful stay at this beautiful home. We always feel right at home and the owners are always quick to answer any questions. The house is spacious and allows grandparents (and parents!) to have quiet time while children enjoy being children! The hot tub is lots of fun and we love watching for alligators. The quick bike ride to the beach is perfect and we look forward to the adventure. Thanks for another wonderful summer vacation."

  • Really Nice!

    "The house is tastefully decorated and spacious. The location is perfect. The pool is just up the street and we usually had it to ourselves. We rode bikes to the beach, but it is walkable. We cooked all our meals at the house and the kitchen had everything we needed."

  • A relaxing stay close to the beach

    "My wife, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this 2 bedroom condo. The furnishings are attractive, the king size bed in the master bedroom and the queen bed in the other bedroom were both comfortable, the kitchen was amply stocked with dishes, utensils and paper towels and the counter was nicely renovated with granite, there is a screened in porch with a lovely view of a lagoon, and you are no more than a 5-7 minute walk to the beach. The only negative I found was that the master bathroom is small. But this was a minor inconvenience that did not detract much from our overall enjoyment of the place. An added perk is that you have the amenities and services of the Kiawah Golf Resort available to you. We found the staff very helpful in resolving minor issues (e.g. providing new batteries for the tv remotes) and suggesting outings, such as the family kayaking trip we took through the marshlands. And if you don 't feel like walking or driving around Kiawah Island, the Resort provides a free shuttle service. In short, our stay at this condo on Kiawah was highly relaxing and enjoyable. We are already considering a return trip."

  • Perfect!

    "Everything about this villa is outstanding. The location is perfect- just a VERY short walk to the beach. The interior is spacious and inviting. The full kitchen allows you to stay in and cook if you want, which we did often. Gary, the owner, is super easy to work with and provided us with plenty of restaurants/activities in the area. Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this villa, especially for a romantic getaway!"

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. Jasmine Porch also offers a signature brunch that can be enjoyed with mimosas.
