They need to show you the condo you are renting. We found ours to be very depressing! So glad we were there for 3 nights & not a week. Our children gave us a gift dinner for my husband''s 65th b'day at the Sanctuary. That was the only good thing about a huge oassis resort. Not for us!!

We have stayed at a number of resorts over the years, this one is the best. Great Hotel, boasts southern charm and appointments, great beach, pool, food, golf and area. No reason to leave. One hour outside Charleston, easy drive. A little on the pricey side, but in the end it is worth it. It truly is The Sanctuary.

We just returned from a stay at the Seascape Villas. Our villa was super-clean and very up-to-date, but a bit dark. However, it was wonderful being in minimal walking distance to Kiawah's beautiful beach. The beach was beautiful and the sand was the softest sand I have ever felt and I have been to beaches in CA, FL, Hawaii and... More

We wanted to take a long weekend with our teenage/adult children but did not want to spend alot of time getting there from NY. On the recommendation of a friend, we headed to KIGR. Our family are not huge golfers, but that didn't matter. My daughters and I took lessons thru the Leaning Center and had a terrific time. My... More

We arrived in Kiawah in May, and had a two-bedroom oceanfront condo. It had been newly renovated, which was a huge plus, because I enjoy brand-new cleanliness. My daughter and her boyfriend joined us for part of the trip and there was plenty for them to do. We walked on the beach every day, had massages (which were overpriced, as... More

We stayed at the Villas at Kiawah Island for two nights on our way back north . The golf is great: The Ocean course is one of the best I've played and Osprey Point is nice, but not spectacular. The villa one bedroom suite had a small bedroom, nice sized seperate room with kitchen & porch. The bathroom was small... More

After reading a few reviews here, we were a bit nervous about our booking for an oceanview one bedroom but our 6 nights starting between Christmas and New Year turned out to be a perfect peaceful wonderful holiday with a clean quiet apartment at Shipwreck Watch. The apartment had everything you need for a hideaway holiday with fully equiped kitchen,... More

Stayed in the East Villas, Unit 4448 on Kiawah Island through the Kiawah Island Golf Resort. Will start out by sharing that this is not a hot nightlife spot, but there are good restaurants. Fully enjoyed flexibility of gorgious condo kitchen, granite countertops with fabulous view of ocean. Lots of swimming in the beach and a nearby outdoor pool. Love... More

We stayed at the Shipwatch Villas and, unlike a previous reviewer, we had very comfortable beds. The kitchen layout was awkward, I agree, but we didn't spend much time there over our long weekend. The view of the ocean from the upper floors was just beautiful and it was nice to hear the surf at night. The breeze blew nicely... More

I just stayed in a home with the Kiawah Island Golf resort with my friends. We had a fantastic time. The house was beautiful and the young people that work at the desk and housekeeping were fabulous. We didn't play golf but the courses looked nice. We did eat at the Atlantic Room for dinner one night and it was... More
