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

I recently had the opportunity to stay for five nights on Kiawah Island. The Sanctuary, as they call it, is amazing. It is expensive, especially for South Carolina, but it might well be worth it. The various restaurant offerings around the island (all part of the resort) offer delicious low country fare, and other options if you are so inclined.... More

Amazing facility; stayed at the villas - had full kitchen, screened in porch, two minute walk to beach; required transportation to the conference center but was very prompt/reliable and courteous; appointments such as TVs in living area and bedroom, washer/dryer made the villa it a lovely place to stay; if you want to use the kitchen, bring food, wine etc....

Our stay at Fairway Oaks Villas was wonderful. The grounds are beautifully kept no matter where you go. The beach was beautiful. Powdery soft white sand and a beautiful view with privacy. The wildlife on the island is wonderful. From the numerous birds to the deer and alligators. We had deer in our back and front yard area daily and... More

Located in this exotic place, this is a unique experience. The villas are each owned privately so they differ tremenfously. I got a delapidated one and learned that there sre other totally different for the same price. Check your room before you enter. The service is great and the staf goes out of its skin to please you.
