I was delighted to reside in this spacious, spotless property perched amidst the trees of Kiawah Island, which afforded me a care-free, wonderful 4 days of rejuvenation. Villas in the community are mostly two story condo units, four to a building, and this treeside second floor unit is perfectly situated with about 8 shared parking spaces. Print your parking pass...

Really enjoyed everything Kiawah had to offer. Great beach, natural beauty, bike trails and water parks. We have a 2 year old daughter and she really loved it. I wish I played golf because the courses seem beautiful too. Easy to get to from Charleston airport also. Can't wait to come back!

Spent Labor Day week here with a group of 15 in a huge house near the beach. It was great! The community itself is so peaceful and relaxing. Tons of restaurants and things to do without even leaving the resort. Had a great time!

The location was amazing - great views and steps from the beach. We loved our stay with all of the pools, restaurants, proximity to the golf course, and of course - the spa. The townhouse was nicely decorated, very clean, but outdated, and in need of some repairs and TLC. For the price as compared to the unit's condition, I... More

We had an extremely disturbing experience with Kamp Kiawah. We dropped off our 4, 8 and 10 year old children this morning for the half day morning program.

In that age range, we maintain a 5:1 ratio of Kamp Kiawah participants to counselors. Our counselors are trained to do a head count before leaving each area, when arriving at a new area, and every...

Our rental home really put a damper on our overall trip experience. Unfortunately, most of the truly horrendous things happened in the last two days, so there was very little recourse for us, although we did complain to the front desk and received a polite but toothless response. In brief - while I understand that palmetto bugs (read: giant cockroaches)... More

We rented 123 Flyway with our friends from July 2nd through July 9th. Having stayed at the Sanctuary a few times before, we were excited to get a different experience on the Island.
