  • A Lovely Spacious Home!

    "The photos do not depict how stately this home is...from its lovely grand foyer to the comfortable en suite bathrooms to the 10-foot ceilings and wide hallways! We loved having a truly comfortable and open floor plan for visiting and cooking together. The kitchen is very well stocked (all kinds of skillets, serving bowls, wine glasses, a blender, dish soap, etc.) and easy to work in while still being part of the group. Having bikes available in the basement was a true bonus! Tire pumps and tools handy if necessary. One of the most fun times was riding to the ocean at twilight on the bikes. A couple times deer were spotted up close. Our king-size bed/mattress was very comfortable, and our guests echoed this sentiment. The upstairs bedrooms are well-appointed (though we didn't find any extra sheets) and quiet enough for babies to take their day naps. There is a lovely painted wooden rocker which is perfect for taking a special photo of the little ones on the front landing. Brenda was extremely communicative and available any time I needed her by phone or by email. That is very important, because I couldn't find my papers upon entering the first gate to Kiawah! Brenda was only a phone call away. There were a few negatives (some unrelated to the home, I realize) and they include the following. The extreme heat and humidity prevented us from enjoying the screened-in porch or deck. The sauna-like conditions in August and "jungle-like" nature of the island kept away any breeze. But the air conditioners on both levels did their jobs, and we were quite comfortable inside. Further, the ocean is very dense with sand so the water is very murky. I recommend taking the available ocean floats located in the unfinished basement which were still sandy from the last guests. The lawn of this home is not suited for children to play outside as the foliage is densex and (BIG) spiders build huge webs all around. It is beautiful, but plan on the beach for outside play. Lastly, the rinse-off shower is located underneath the screened-in porch in a shed-like structure that is dark and closed in, a small issue because there are plenty of showers inside. We had such a good time in this beautiful home and want to thank the owners for listing it and for allowing us to experience the South Carolina's Kiawah Island!"

  • 3 couples and 1 week of fun!!

    "We enjoyed this house greatly!! From the moment we walked in and found a beautiful and spacious home, we were delighted!! We were with 2 other couples and we all had our own suites. We had plenty of privacy yet enjoyed cooking together in the huge kitchen. The dining table in the kitchen was big enough for us all so we never used the dining room but that was even bigger. What I enjoyed most about the house was the swimming pool and the view of the golf course. The beach was close, just a short bike ride or walk. I would highly recommend this home to everyone!! This home is past the second gate. Both the living room and family room were large. The A/C worked wonderfully too!! My husband had been in contact with the owner and he was easily accessible and very helpful! We plan on making this an annual trip with our friends and agreed to rent this beautiful home again!!"

  • The Perfect Stay

    "We have stayed with the St. John's at Sweetgrass 1 and this unit far surpasses our hopes. After years of dealing with Wade and Elisabeth they are a pleasure to deal with both in business and personally. After all these years we call them friends. You can count on them, their word is gold. The house Is perfectly located and close to beach access. The house is well equipped with everything you an possibly need. The multiple seating areas are great for having multiple conversations. Do yourself a favor and book it. We sure will again and again. Bob & Diane Davis - Vestal, NY"

  • Perfect family vacation home

    "We're just back from a week's stay at this Kiawah Island home and we're already missing it. The location can't be beat - just a 5 minute walk to the beach and beach club, spectacular views of the ocean and marsh, peaceful and quiet road - and the layout is perfect for a large family, 2 or so families or several couples. The three bedrooms on the 1st and 2nd levels have ensuite bathrooms so they're perfect for adults and 2 the bedrooms and study on the 3rd level can easily accommodate 5-6 kids or another couple. The house is very clean and well furnished and provides ample common space to lounge in and a large open kitchen for gatherings. Penny and her team were super easy to work with and made sure that we had everything we needed while there. I can't recommend this house high enough!"
