This was an awesome vacation for spring break. Husband golfed, kids did all of the activities at the Nature center and craft activities, and I enjoyed the beautiful scenery and beach. The food was fabulous at all of the restaurants. The kids love the snack bars and ice cream parlors. Everyone was so friendly and helpful in getting us into... More

We recently spent a week here on the recommendation of several friends and found it a surprisingly beautiful place for such a large resort. We spent part of the week in a villa on the ocean which had a great view but was somewhat dated and the rest of the week in a smaller house which was delightful. We loved... More

We love everything about Kiawah Island! This was our third annual getaway with friends and tho the weather was cold and somewhat rainy we managed two days of golf and enjoyed every minute! Customer service is alive and well wherever you go on the Island. Our Villa was beautiful and our traditional dinner by the fireplace at the Ryder Cup... More

Tucked away in rolling marsh and sandy beaches is Kiawah Island and the Kiawah resort. From the moment you pass the guard tower you are transported to a different time and place. From the lobby to the conference facilities and the shops, homes, condo's, and golf courses. This place has it all..

A trip to Kiawah is a glimpse of heaven. The location is like a dream world; with nights so dark and silent and days so fresh and free. The staff, accommodations and scenery are outstanding. You will be treated like royalty from the minute you arrive until the warm goodbye and invitation to return.

I fell for their "Golf or Gourmet" special. While the meal at Tomasso was good, the villa was sub-standard at best. It appeared to be about 30 years old and I would be surprised if it had been touched the entire time. No view, big signs all over the fireplace warning not to attempt to use it, ancient shower plumbing,... More

We rented a four bedroom villa for the Earl Klugh Jazz Fest in November 2014. The villa, which was beautifully designed and had been well-appointed, was in need of some TLC. The kitchen was missing most of the basic appointments - pots, pans, utensils, the microwave was broken, the gas log fireplaces were not available for use by renters, and... More

Stayed here for a conference and the location is amazing. Make sure you take an early morning walk for the sunrise on the beach. The villas are privately owned and so this means each one is differently and personally decorated. I was in one a long way from the conference centre, which was an issue. A mini bus transport is...

I recently stayed at The Sanctuary for the Earl Klugh Jazz Weekend. A first class event at a first class facility. It is about 45 minutes outside of Charleston, but definitely worth the drive. First class golf courses, bike rentals available, great beach, courteous staff, great cuisine, and a small shopping village nearby. Add to this a jazz festival on... More
