  • Great Place to Stay

    "This place was great! My wife and I have already discussed coming back. The cottage was clean, which is of the utmost importance. It's a short walk to the beach, there are items in the cottage to get you started (paper towels, coffee filters, dish soap, plenty of towels, clean sheets, etc.). There is a grill with propane, which was nice. We really enjoyed staying here. The property manager Susie was very helpful. I would definitely stay here again and may end up staying here again in the future. Guy complaining about the tiny leaves, really?"

  • Spring Break 2014

    "This was our second stay in this villa. It is lovely, immaculate and nicely decorated. I was very happy to see that when the remodeling was done the owners did not remove the bathtub in favor of a shower! So many places do that now and for those of us who prefer a relaxing soak, a shower just does not cut it!"

  • Wonderful!

    "This place had everything we needed, was so clean and was very tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable, just as comfortable as our bed at home, which is something that is not always the case with a rental. The beach was a very close walk and the area around the condo was very quiet and peaceful. We spent two of the days riding bikes all over the island, which was a lot of fun. Never quite figured out the Wifi situation but we were so busy, for once it didn't matter. It was kind of nice to be "unplugged" anyway. It was a great vacation!"

  • Night Heron Park cottage

    "This was a lovely place to stay, very pleasant and clean, everything you would need for traveling already in the cottage: paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap and sponges, laundry soap, maps, brochures, phone numbers for local attractions, hair dryers and an iron, etc. The owner was one of the best I've dealt with -- very responsive, cordial, helpful and kind. This cottage was very comfortable for three adults and three kids. We really enjoyed our stay. The nearby Night Heron park is just stunning -- tropical and tranquil. This cottage is very convenient for walking to the park or the beach, and is a short drive to other nearby "villages" for shopping or eating. Plenty of room to park multiple cars if needed, and the keyless entry was a great benefit as well. Very quiet and night and air-conditioning worked great. Wish I was still there!"

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 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.

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.
