Recent Kiawah Island reviews

  • Close to amenities, great resort privilege's

    "We had never been to Kiawah and now that we have can't wait to return! This villa was perfect for us, close to the beach, hotel for spa and restaurants, Night Heron pool area. The owner was very easy to work with and had our deposit returned very quickly. The villa was super clean! We had a few minor issues but because this villa is associated with the resort all I had to do was call the front desk and they we're very quick to repsond, even sent us wine and chocolate for our trouble, great customer service!"

  • Loved Everything!!!

    "We had a fabulous stay at this house. It was the perfect house for our group of 3 families (adults and teens). If you are thinking of booking, you should know that the house looks even better in person than it does in the photos. The main level is huge, with a brand new, beautiful dining table from Pottery Barn that seats at least 10. It also has a breakfast nook that seats 6. The screened porch overlooking the golf course is also larger than it appears and is lovely, as is the covered front porch on the other side of the house. The beds were all in good shape with quality mattresses which is important to us when renting a house. One of the master bedrooms also had a futon-like double bed in it. The kitchen and bathrooms were very well-stocked. The community pool is steps from the house and feels like a private pool. No one else used it while we were there. The ocean is a nice walk and an easy bike ride from the house. We liked the privacy of the house, with it being just a short distance from the beach, but on a cul de sac and without the foot and bike traffic that the beachfront properties experience. The house was spotless and extremely well-maintained. Everything was in excellent working order. The owners were wonderful to work with. We have rented many beach and lake houses over the years and this is among the best. We would gladly return, and are already making plans to."

  • Awesome Cottage

    "We have stayed in many properties on Kiawah Island. This is one of our favorites. The kitchen has been updated, is well stocked with plenty of cookware, plates, silverware, glassware and pitchers. Whipping up some of our family favorite vacation meals was a breeze. The cottage is open and airy and nicely decorated. There was plenty of room for our family of 5. We enjoyed the front porch with its' rocking chairs and the screened in porch overlooking the lagoon. Check-in was easy. We enjoyed using the resort pool and workout facilities. The owner is great to work with and very responsive. We look forward to returning to this cottage."

  • Wonderful vacation rental

    "What a perfect rental. They provided all the basic amenities for your convenience. They had all you needed for a fun week, lots of working bikes, beach boards of good quality, nice beach chairs and sand toys. No need to bring anything extra, they thought of everything. TVs in every room and an excellently stocked kitchen, make quick meals easy to prepare. Very clean. Highly recommend this rental and Kiawah as a vacation destination."

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.

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!

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.

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.
