Beautiful room and general areas. Great winter deal! Coffee in a rocking chair looking at the ocean......who could ask for more? Everyone was friendly as well as helpful. Loved the free shuttle to visit the other locations associated with this one.

First, I love this resort. We have been vacationing here for 25 years and now own property on the island. While we are here, we usually eat lunch and dinner out and enjoy going to the resort restaurants. Today, we decided to go to Southern Kitchen for lunch. I checked the resort website which stated that it was open, but... More

Thank you for your loyalty and for bring this to our attention. Looking into the matter, it seems our mobile sites weren't being updated with our main site. We've since corrected this so both sites will be updated with the correct restaurant operation times. Again, thank you for bring this to our attention.

We were on a day visit and did not stay overnight at the lovely resort. Food was very good and you get very good food at many places on the Island. The golf resort is richly decorated. The golf courses are professionally designed. The resort has a fine sea beach.

We were here for only 3 nights and booked a one bedroom "premium" condo in the Windswept area. Given our schedule we did not book ocean front but it worked out fine as we were 5 minute walk from beach. Condo was very good with nice fixtures, countertops, TV's, etc. Not very busy when we were there so very quiet.... More

The best beach in the world for walking, biking and swimming. During low tide there is over 200 yards of beach to enjoy. Enjoy biking and walking on trails and bike paths. Chartered... More

The resort is just beautiful. We rented a house with beach access and views that was just exquisite. The beach is beautiful. The restaurants are excellent and very willing to accommodate food allergies. The island is very child friendly. A great place for families.

I have experienced Kiawah for yearly conferences and for Women's Golf experiences for a number of years. There is no place more beautiful on Earth. The Resort staff and the Golf professionals are without peer. The Nature activities are wonderful, from motorboat trips for dolphin watching to shelling to sunset cruises; kayak trips in the marsh and on the river;... More

My husband and I were recently in Kiawah and stayed at one of the Villas. We had asked for a view, and our printout said Scenic View. I personally did not find the palm tree and road very scenic. Beside us was what I assumed was an owner of one of the units. In order to schlep all of our... More

The location of our villa was amazing - 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath - oceanfront, - beautifully decorated villa overlooking nature, the beach, and the water. Could not have asked for a more relaxing vacation.
