Great place to have a getaway from the hustle bustle . Beaches are lovely! Great restaurants close by without having to travel to Charleston.

Nature at its best. The Nature Center and their tours are top notch. There are 30 miles of bike trails! And so much fun to ride on the beach too. Love it!

Off season visit It was wonderful - no waiting for any reservations! We biked the bike paths, went shopping outside the island. Took a day trip to Charleston. Perfect time and weather

This island was not known to us living in NJ (we go to the Jersey shore!). We found it by doing internet searches of beaches near Charleston and were immediately captivated by the landscape and possibilities. We traveled there in August and truly enjoyed every minute. The island is lush and laid back with plenty to do if you enjoy... More

The Island and setting is beautiful. Very peaceful. At night you see lots of deer. The golf courses are a golfers dream. We went to the beach to take pictures, it was a cold, windy day, but the view was worth the 30 minutes we were there.

Kiawah Island is one of those places that just "feels right". Semi-tropical, quiet, private, laid back and stunningly beautiful, Kiawah is the place to get away from the rat race and relax. Miles of bike trails, plentiful golf, nature at its finest, wide beautiful beaches and a quaint little village filled with shops and restaurants all make Kiawah the perfect... More

We really enjoyed renting bikes and riding through the paths and onto the beach. Nature center was nice - kids club seemed to have some great activities.

Some things get better with time. Had not been back here for years. This is a GREAT resort. Beautiful and well landscaped. Somewhat remote and about 45 minutes from Charleston. Since I was here last have added Fieldstone Village for shopping. Welcome addition. The Sanctuary is appropriately 5 Star in looks and service. Top notch golf and tennis. Tennis clinics... More

We went to Kiawah Island for Thanksgiving to escape the cold and snow in Pittsburgh. What a wonderful find! We were more than pleased with Kiawah. The weather was wonderful and we really enjoyed riding bikes directly on the beach. Families were biking along a beautiful off-road path; we passed many parks where kids were playing football and frisbee. We... More

Kiawah Island is a terrific place to stay. We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa with another couple. The place was huge with a kitchen, dining room, living room, deck and three baths. The condo had all of the expected amenities and was immaculate. The ocean "view" was there but was not what we expected but the walk to the... More
