Recent Kiawah Island reviews

  • Really pleased with location and property...our second stay!

    "This villa is a great getaway...very enjoyable for our family of four. It was tastefully decorated with attractive furnishings...the master bedroom was serene and had a bed that was extra comfortable. The newly remodeled master bath was an added bonus, it exceeded our expectations. It truly is a five minute walk from the beach...very convenient. The owners made themselves available before, during and even after our stay when I lost my keys. Because they personally use the villa, it was clean and well kept...everything you need! We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends. The tree canopy over the bike trails provides shade that makes riding pleasant all day...our favorite past time! We were very happy to discover that Harris Teeter had taken over the previous market, there is no need to buy groceries elsewhere, the prices were quite reasonable. Nice wine selection as well. Kiawah is one of our favorite vacations!"

  • only 250 steps to the beach (I counted!)

    "Very clean and comfortable-even smelled good when we first walked in. Loved the porch and so glad we had a washer/dryer. Beach is very close - a five minute walk. Would definitely stay here again."

    "Pictures don't do this house justice! So nice. Great for two families with young children. Our kids loved the bunk room and games in the theater room. The kitchen and bathrooms were nicely remodeled and we love the large screened porch. The beach was a bit of a walk but good exercise. Booking was a bit difficult but our stay was well worth any trouble."

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.

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.
