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

I chose Kiawah because of its proximity to Charleston (45 minutes at most) and its highly ranked tennis program and clinics. I signed up for a tennis package, staying in one of the villas. My villa was very nice, it had a washer a dryer, full kitchen with cooking supplies, and screened-in porch. The tennis package included clinics each day.... More

Our stay at Kiawah was amazing. We found all staff to be courteous, professional and responsive. Our villa was beautiful and clean. The kids enjoyed the various activities, with almost too much to choose from. We biked, fished in the bass pond, swam in the ocean, watched a movie from the luxurious Sanctuary pool, laughed to tears at the Rick... More

First of all. please completely disregard Mamasnotcooking's review. Mama is not only not cooking, but she is not telling the truth. The guest service arrival was outstanding, and the check in staff implore you to have a person from the personally lead you to your villa. We did not accept because we were able to find it quite easily, maybe... More
