"Although our first time to Kiawah, my wife and I have travelled extensively. In our experience, this was as good a rental experience and as nice a property as you will find. Although it would probably be tight for 6, we had our 2 teenage sons, and found the place nearly perfect for four.
It was appointed in a high quality and tasteful manner rarely found in rentals. The unit and the complex is quiet and relaxing. The unit is on the end of the complex, and the view of the beach is narrow, (between the adjacent unit wall, and the treetops) but charming, and enough to enjoy while relaxing on the terrace, and to allow "surf report".
Plenty of towels, linens, etc, all comfortable, nice quality, and clean. Kitchen is very thoroughly equipped, but small and limited in dry food storage - not a problem if you're planning on dining out a lot.
Building lacks ground level storage for beach gear - chairs, umbrella, etc. but we simply carried the up and down and stored them on the balcony. I wouldn't rent them - the rentals are always set up at the dune, which at lower tide is very far from the surf. Bikes will also be exposed - kind of a drag, but common.
Shawn and Jeanette, who we met in person as we were leaving, really care about the properties and the guest experience. You won't be disappointed."
