We stayed at Villa 1422 Courtside at Kiawah Island Resort. Last summer we stayed at the Sanctuary Hotel also on the Kiawah Island Resort. The Sanctuary hotel is exquisite. I would have stayed there again but with COVID-19 I wanted to be able to prepare our own meals and stay away from public places. I thought a villa was an ideal alternative. While I was not expecting the same level of luxury as the Sanctuary, I thought it would be at least above average. It was not even close. I should have checked Trip Advisor. Our experience was the same as another review of Seascape villas which was located across the street from Courtside villas:“Rundown and roach infested.”I called about the roaches and I was told they were “palmetto bugs” which, according to multiple references including Orkin, are in fact cockroaches. They came out in full force our last night at the villa, probably because it rained. At one point, there was a large one on the ceiling, other ones on an overhead beam, behind the couch, under the oven, and I managed to kill one on the wall because it was slow and reachable. I contacted the front desk person who was nice and sympathetic but unable to help. He awarded me a $50 credit for my troubles. Along with the roach problem, the place was vastly disappointing. Here is list of negatives and some positives: Negatives: Only 2/4 burners work on stove Torn chair cover on a dry rotted indoor chair Dirty and scuffed wood molding everywhere Worn out couch Lumpy sagging master bedroom mattress Someone else’s old Underwear in the closet No cutting board Paint and Caulking eroded, Dirty, and peeling in bathroom Mold in tub Stains everywhere on wall to wall carpet Dusty/dirty outdoor furniture Duct taped broken blinds 24 hr delay for request for another set of towels, we only got 3 sets but we had 4 adults. Tub Drain very slow and made weird random “froggy”sounds which is probably due to a clog but disturbing nonetheless A few positives: Air conditioning worked Ice maker worked View of lagoon was nice— Framed by live oaks, magnolias, and Spanish moss Dishwasher worked Washer dryer worked (located outside on porch ) TV small but worked, not a lot channels 1 min bike ride to beach Rental bikes delivered and picked up at the villa. DVD player worked. Dining room table was large, glass, and with comfortable seating

Our 2-bedroom condo was very outdated. The beds were in need of being replaced. The TVs were the smallest I’ve seen in ages. We had an issue with the shower not draining. I called for service and was told, “no problem, we’ll take care of it right away.” No one ever came. At $600/night I felt fleeced.

Dear Maui, Thank you for being our guest. We regret that the unit you stayed in did not meet your expectations, and we are particularly sorry that we did properly attend to the drain when you called about it. Thank you for letting us know, and I have shared your feedback with villa management so this issue can be addressed.

This is our 4th year vacationing at Kiawah and we decided to try an ocean view villa. The view is amazing however the villa is run down and looked barely cleaned. Furniture is worn, carpet has that old mildew smell. I was shocked on arrival given COVID to find the floors dirty, hair in the sink, bathroom sink was clogged and the washer/dryer unusable because it was full of sand. Looks like they did a superficial clean and no one is checking up on housekeeping. I plan to visit the front desk in the am to discuss alternative arrangements or at a minimum to have it properly cleaned.

Dear 607marybethv, First, thank you for returning to Kiawah Island Golf Resort for four years now, particularly during these unprecedented times. Thank you also for your feedback regarding the condition of the unit you are staying in. We are sorry the conditions you describe do not meet the high standards we set for the resort. Our front desk is staffed 24/7, one of the many benefits of booking directly through the resort. If you haven't already done so, I would strongly encourage you to reach out to them at your earliest convenience so they can address the issues you describe as quickly as possible. I sincerely hope you enjoy the rest of your visit with us and are taking advantage of many of the resort's amenities. Thanks again for being our guest and for your invaluable feedback.

We have stayed at Kiawah several times and it’s always been great. I booked our golf trip knowing we are still dealing with COVID. I called the week before we were going to make sure the golf courses were open and there were places on the property for dinner. After the first day of golf we went to one place and they said they were full as was all of the other places on the island and they were fully booked the next night as well. I called the concierge and she was no help then spoke to the manager and when I asked why they hadn’t told me to book dining reservations a week ahead all she could say was sorry can’t help you. We spent over $4,000 for two nights and she offered no solutions and frankly acted like she didn’t care. Not what you would expect from Kiawah.

Dear WSE, First, thank you for choosing to return to Kiawah Island Golf Resort during these unprecedented times. Thanks also for your invaluable feedback. I completely understand your frustration regarding dining availability, and we very much appreciate your advice about encouraging future guests to make dining reservations beforehand. We have heeded your advice and are reaching out to guests in advance of their visits to encourage them to make reservations before they arrive on the island. When we began to emerged from the complete lockdown, after the resort was mainly closed for two months, we were very pleased to experience record high numbers of people calling to request reservations. The response was really quite staggering. At the same time, the state was still under partial lockdown, so we were unable to offer indoor dining even when we were able to reopen lodging and still provide curbside pick-up from a number of our restaurants. While the state has loosened up its restrictions in that regard, our top priority has been to protect the health and wellbeing of our guests and employees, so we are taking an extremely cautious approach to reopening our restaurant dining rooms. Happily, we have expanded such offerings, which has helped alleviate the circumstances you describe. However, we do still encourage guests to call in advance of their visits to secure their desired dining times and venues. Again, thank you for being our guests, and thank you for your invaluable feedback. We hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back.

Beautiful view - terribly maintained. Concierge was very helpful but now that we are in a beautiful villa in windswept, I realize that we should not have put up with the mold, mildew, dirt and roaches in 3515 Seascape.
