3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My husband was coming to the resort for a conference so I was excited to join him...we even booked a few extra days at the villa. From what I had read, I was expecting a luxury resort, with high-end amenities. However, I didn't find that the resort lived up to expectations, though they certainly charge 5-star prices. I live in... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa. It was clean, comfortable and very well appointed for an enjoyable golf and beach vacation. Our villa was a short walk from the beach, which is great for walking and sitting and not crowded at all. There are miles and miles of bike trails all over the island and they are easily reached...

My fourth stay on the island . Villas vary by amenities and location but I've loved each. This time we stayed at a Parkside villa with ample deck and screen porch area. Spent lots of time out there enjoying the weather and the view. Lots of activities (bike rental, pools, beach, paddleboarding, sunset cruise, nature bike tour)! Gorgeous island and... More

We stayed at one of the Turtle Point Villas. The villa is exceptionally large for a family of 5. Close to the River Course where the wedding was held, the Night Heron pool where I took my toddler to play and the Sanctuary pool & Beach, also a great relaxing area. I wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy... More

Kiawah Island is the most relaxing, serene place I have ever been! I have traveled extensively and you won't find more beautiful beaches, tropical wonders, hospitality that can't be matched and if you want to be one with nature, this is the only place to be! Love this place - plan on retiring here -

I have been here before for a wedding and was very excited to bring my family back for a week. We have two small children so rented a villa in east beach to be near Night Heron pool and beach. Little did I know coming right before Labor Day would be a problem. The whole schedule of the resort changed... More

This place has it all!!! Essentially, we never had to leave the island. My family and I stayed here for a week in a very cozy, reasonably priced condo. We played golf, are out a a different restaurant every night, and had the option to cook for ourselves, at times. Cougar point was my favorite course of the 5 available.... More

Rented a house, very clean well appointed. Only downside very few homes with pools. Beach however is lovely. Easy access on and off, didn't feel like we were sitting on top of our beach neighbors. Entire family from 2yrs to 60 loved the island. We are already planning for next summer

Loved the island/resort and all that it had to offer. Kids are ages 9 and 11. Bike rentals are a MUST as are chairs and umbrellas for the beach. We did a nature tour on the bike which was fabulous. Bike paths are everywhere. Would love to have golfed - the courses look amazing. The grocery store (Freshfields) had everything... More

I'm not very good with words but I needed to write a review about this place. We rented the villa windswept 4301 for a family vacation 2 weeks ago. The unit was a little dated, but the location and view were absolutely amazing and were were never inside anyway. The resort is clean, beautiful and has absolutely everything you need... More
