“Lovely beach resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We enjoyed our trip to Kiawah. The area is quiet and relaxing. The 1 bedroom unit we rented from Kiawah Island Golf Resort was furnished with everything we needed including two beach chairs. The staff was friendly but the condo seemed like it had been slap-dash cleaned. Would have rated it a 5 if it had been cleaned better.

Exclusive place for those who enjoy fine dining and great beaches. The staff is wonderful. Highly recommend eating at the Ocean course Atlantic room. The view is breathtaking. My kids loved the heated Night Heron pool.

Staying at beach front villa and couldn't be happier. The beaches are gorgeous. The villa is very nice. The resort easy to book with. The dear and herons walk freely through out property. . Absolutely impeccable grounds. This is a real winner

We rented a 2 bedroom first floor villa in the Turtle Cove section of Kiawah Island. The condo was comfortably furnished, nothing fancy but we booked the basic . Ironically we only saw turtles swimming in the lagoon just off the screened in deck. The were plenty of alligators sunning and swimming in other ponds and lagoons around the Island. We were walking distance to the Town Market and the Sanctuary. Highlights included bike riding on the beach and great dinning everywhere.

Room Tip: Always ask for a water view, either ocean or lagoon.

The resort is very nice - the shuttle service was wonderful. We stayed in a villa - 5142 Windswept and it was very nice- wonderful view of the beach and easy access a short walk down to the boardwalk.

Room Tip: There was no room service or housekeeping service available at our villa. Our room was very nice...

I don't normally right reviews, but I have to say - our recent trip to Kiawah Island Golf Resort was fantastic. We stayed in a 3 bedroom east villa overlooking the ocean. The villa was just the right size for my wife, 3 year old, mom and dad and mother in-law. The Heron kids pool was so awesome, my daughter did not want to leave. we ate at the Atlantic Grill and the food and service was great - and what a view at sunset... The resort is well situated, and allowed for us to walk or bike to anywhere we wished. All in all, what a great vacation
