First visit to Kiawah/ a couple questions

Hi, my husband and I are considering Kiawah for our 30th anniversary. We love nature and bike riding, and the beach. Our anniversary is early May, but think it would be too cool to really enjoy the beach, swimming ect. So, we are thinking early June for two weeks or so. Am I right in thinking early May would be too early for good beach weather, swimming, tanning and such? Also, I am a bit nervous about the palmetto bugs, as I am a bug wimp. Are they prevalent in the villas? We are from the mid west and have vacationed mostly along the Maine coast, so are not used to these. Any answers would be appreciated. Thanks!

May will be wonderful for outdoor activities, mid-May might be better for the water.

All the villas are sprayed regularly (as are all the houses on the island, sort of a "have to"). When we used to rent we encountered a problem or two, but I resolved it (for the short term) by leaving a light on in the kitchen all the time (under the microwave light is fine, not the big overhead light). The bugs prefer the dark, so "let there be light"!!!

Plan on checking in w/my friend Ralph prior to that time to book a kayak tour of the marshes for while you're here...

Happy Anniversary! Kiawah is the perfect place to enjoy!

The water should be nice in May, at least compared to Maine or Michigan. Enjoy!

May air and water temperatures should be fine for sunning and swimming, and not so hot and humid as June.
