The design of the island is exemplary. One would never guess at the density of housing as the landscaping masks and enhances the natural environs. The diversity of design and location of homes also is a masterwork. Trails, parks, golf courses, beaches, restaurants and shops all additive to the experience of a natural environment with which the housing is in... More

We are long-time visitors to Hilton Head and this was our first visit to Kiawah and it was a great destination. Kiawah reminds me and has a lot of similarities with Sea Pines on Hilton Head Island. Like HHI, it has ample bike paths, several top flight golf courses and a great island design. One major difference with Kiawah vs... More

Had a wonderful break from the Michigan cold and snow. The resort is well maintained, the food at the clubs was excellent, and the facilities are impressive. Can't wait to come back to visit our friends!

The whole island is a large resort area. There's everything from condos to mansions. The beach is wide and sand is hard-packed (great for running). The resort has lots of amenities from shops and restaurants to pool and golf. Great place to go with families or couples.

Kiawah is the most special beach I have ever been to. I grew up on the New England shore and thought nothing could be better. Until we found Kiawah. No matter where you stay on the island you have access to a glorious 10 miles of beach. Choose a townhouse, condo, villa or a 5 star hotel. Perfect for couples,... More

If you like natural beauty, picturesque vistas, bird watching, a fantastic beach, bike paths everywhere, a wonderful variety of mid to high end accomodations, and world class golf and tennis, Kiawah is your place. Fantastic for families, groups of friends and couples. Love Kiawah.
