Lovely, comfortable home
"We had a wonderful stay. It was unfortunately cut short by Hurricane Matthew, but we certainly enjoyed the time we had at the house. It is well-stocked, with lots of comfortable living space. The pool is the perfect size for an afternoon dip. And the screened-in porch allows you to open the French doors and let the air in while you enjoy dinner. You're just a short bike ride away from the beach. We even made friends with the neighbors while we were there. Loved it!"

"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!"

"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!"

"Our family of 11, 3 of those under 3, had a wonderful time at the Kiawah home. Every family had its own bedroom and bath and the common living spaces accommodated all of us for gathering and meals. Furnishings were up to date. View of the pond with the visiting alligator provided some good conversations!"
