Kiawah is a beautiful, very natural, planned community. It is a great place to play golf, ride bikes or relax on a natural beach that is never crowded. It is a perfect place to relax and get away from it all. However, if you are looking for more activity than that, it not the place for you. Most attractions, sights in Charleston, etc, are at least 20 minutes drive time away. I like to call this place the "anti-Myrtle Beach." My husband was bored because he does not like to spend the day on the beach. However, I enjoy sitting on the beach all day and there is always a lot of nature to enjoy from your house or condo. You do not see any obese, heavily tattooed people on the beach. I'm not saying everyone has model-perfect bodies but you don't see any slobs either.
Last two times I have went (I've been there 4 times), we've had some maintenance issues with our place thru Wyndham Vacation Rentals. They were very slow to get these issues taken care of. For example, the pilot light on our hot water tank kept going out. Thankfully my husband is a contractor and could take care of this but that shouldn't be his job while on vacation. Also, some of the units we have stayed in needed updating, especially in the kitchen. Some of the appliances were not in the best working order.
You will feel relaxed if you go on a Kiawah vacation. We just returned from a week's stay and it went way too fast.
