Perfectly Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent Christmas to New Years in this gorgeous home. The location of the house is PERFECT. It was a short walk to the beach and the house is situated beside a lagoon--absolutely beautiful! We rode our bikes EVERYWHERE!! The teenagers among us loved the pool and the hot tub. The house itself is beautiful with every amenity I can think of...we did our laundry, cooked our meals in the beautiful kitchen and didn't want for anything. HIGHLY recommend.

Pure Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Words can not describe what a wonderful vacation we had with our extended family, 8 in all, ages 15 to 74. We have been vacationing in Kiawah for quite a number of years now and this by far was our favorite trip. We all walked into the house and thought “this place is special”. It was warm and cozy but with plenty of room for all of us to stretch out and relax. The pool and hot tub were a big hit with the kids and adults as well. The house is perfectly situated on the island just passed the 2nd gate, not far from The Sanctuary, Night Heron Pool/Park and Freshfields Village. The house is located adjacent to bike trail access point to beach, only a 5 minute walk and you can see the waves crashing. We played golf @ the resort courses, rode our bikes on the beach, & had cocktails on the deck at the Ocean Course at sunset (which is one of the most beautiful places on the island and highly recommended). Kiawah is also only a 40 minute drive into downtown Charleston, where we enjoyed the tour @ the Charleston Tea Plantation before a low country dinner @ Amen Fish and Raw Bar.

Even when we had difficulty navigating the remote for the pool heater, the property manager got in touch with the pool service and they came right by and showed us how it worked.

We can hardly wait until next year to continue our families new tradition of spending the holidays on Kiawah.

We were three generations who enjoyed the home,

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and extremely comfortable. The setting is perfect for sitting on the deck and enjoying a cocktail and watching all the wildlife in the lagoon. We spent many a happy hour in the hot tub and infinity pool, It was a magnet for the entire family. We enjoyed all the sports available, the rides on the beach, golf, sightseeing etc. The house is spacious and allows everyone privacy as well as being beautifully furnished.
