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. The place... More

We stayed at the Sanctuary in August for a week and what a pleasant surprise! Our suite was very nicely appointed and very comfortable. We had a view overlooking the ocean, it was a wonderful way to wake up in the morning and have coffee on our private balcony. The staff was very accomidating and had such lovely southern hospitality!... More

Top notch service at a 5-Star Resort is what you expect and that is what we got. Great food, too. We ate at Jasmine Porch on three occasions for breakfast and lunch. We ate at the Ocean Room and Tomasso's for dinner. Cocktails were at the pool bar and restaurant, Loggerheads. Wait staff was always there when you wanted them... More

We rented one of the Beach Townhouses at the Kiawah resort and it was the perfect option for a family with small children. We went into Charleston a number of times to eat at several restaurants, but we appreciated coming back to an ocean views and lots of space in the evening. The resort made it easy to wrap all...

My first time to visit Kiawah and we picked the perfect place Windswept Villas at Kiawah Island Golf resort! So much lush vegetation in this nature preserve you don't realize how many properties are on the island. Highly recommend 4331 Windswept although it said partial ocean views 3 areas had full ocean view with only the palm trees to frame... More
