Great location

  • 2 of 5

The location of this property is great. It's close to the pool and beach. Having resort privileges is a plus too. Upon check in the unit was not cleaned very well at all (coffee grounds, crumbs, chips on the floor etc)

The condition of the unit is rough specifically the kitchen. It says it's a premiere property with the resort and in my history of this level of property, it does not meet the criteria. I have been coming to Kiawah for the last 25 years and this was one of the best locations I've had but the worst interior accommodations.

The perfect place to stay with the family

  • 5 of 5

the fact This house was such a perfect location for us. We were 5 minutes from the beach, the kids loved seeing alligators on the way, and 3 minutes from the Heron park, pool, splash park etc!

The house was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Having the resort access was a must! We could go to all the golf clubs and eat, rent bikes, etc.

I would suggest if traveling w little kids to hit the beach at low tide so they play in the tide pools.

We hired a sitter nightly through the resort and my husband and I drove into Charleston almost nightly to meet friends and have dinner. Using WAZ this took 38 mins tops (without traffic).

I would highly suggest The Ryder's Cup bar at end of Kiawah to have lunch or dinner. The views were amazing. Also brunch at the Sanctuary was really wonderful. We tried as many restaurants for lunch as we could, and they were all very good.

Overall a great vacation.

Evans, GA

This property is beautiful, tastefully decorated, and well maintained.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed during our stay. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that there is a rather large area of rotten wood on the upper roof corner of the back deck around the gutter/roof line closest to the sliding glass door that leads from the master bedroom. The last night we were there, I heard "scratching" noises in the wall over the sink in the master bedroom that were a little creepy. The owners may want to inspect this.

Great Visit!

  • 5 of 5

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your cottage. The grandkids especially enjoyed the pools, the nature center and, of course the beach. They used your boogie boards & had a delightful time in the ocean. We spent a week at Nag's Head last year & the red flags were up every day -- no ocean swimming for us! We also spent a good bit of time in Charleston as our daughter had never been there before. Spent our beach time later in the afternoon when it wasn't as hot. There was something for everyone on the vacation -- a good time for all!
