A festive cocktail, burger or caesar salad with fried oysters or kids activities and games call you from the beach or cottage to Night Heron pool, another short 5 minute walk.

Enroll the kids in Kamp Kiawah and enjoy some mom and dad time alone!

A stroll or bike ride on the wide flat beach for ½ mile leads to the 5 star Sanctuary Hotel and Spa. Shop for that special gift, enjoy Sunday brunch at Jasmine Porch or have a glass of champagne by the fire in the piano bar. What about a massage or facial at the luxury spa?

Five golf courses meandering through the low country foliage and following the beach await your round. Golf clinics for adults and kids are offered and family golf on Turtle Point Golf Course is a pleasure for all! The Ocean Course has hosted many PGA events and is hosted the 2012 PGA championship. You have to see the newly renovated clubhouse and have a beer or tea at the Ryder Cup bar!

Kiawah was also sited as the top tennis resort. Two state of the art tennis areas await your serve. There are also tennis clinics offered for adults and children year round.

Many on island dining options abound. Have a casual soup and sandwich or order pizza to go at the East beach market, fabulous italian in a clubhouse setting at Tomassos in Turtle Point, or fine dining at the Atlantic Room or Ocean Room. There is also Jasmine Porch, Loggerhead Grill, Shrimpers, and Night Heron grill.

If Kiawah Island is not enough, how about a shopping spree at Freshfields Village? Complete with many restaurants including Heges(wonderful french dining), GDC home, The Resort Shop, Pink Boulevard(Lilly Pulitzer), Harris Teeter grocery and much more. By car it's only 7 minutes away from home or you can take a leisurely bike ride there.

Go a little further and visit Bohicket Marina and charter your boat or take in some raw bar fare and a beer at Red's.

Charleston is only 30 minutes away! Carriage ride, ghost tour or historic home or garden walk anyone? Museums, aquarium, dining and shopping? The cobblestone streets whisper sweet southern 'nothins' in your ear.

All in all you can't beat Sunshine Daydream and Kiawah! We have only touched on a few highlights. You will be hooked as soon as you drive in the gate!

About Sunny Allen

My husband and I are both from Charlotte, NC. We have son 18 and daughter 16. We love the beach, crabbing, fishing, biking, playing in the park, boating, water skiing and tubing, kayaking and hanging out at the pool. Night Heron park has offered many kid and teen activities for our children.

Sunny Allen purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Sunny Allen chose Kiawah Island

Kiawah is one of the top beaches and resorts in the South. It's natural beauty and wildlife is unsurpassed. Kiawah's proximity to Charleston, SC, provides excellent dining, shopping, history and culture nearby.

Perfect little spot in Kiawah

  • 4 of 5

My first reaction on seeing this little gem of a place was that it looks so much better than in the pictures! Perfectly situated, this cottage is fantastic for families or a group of friends. I came with a group of girls for a bachelorette spa weekend, and we couldn't have picked a better spot. The cottage is modern and spacious, clean, well decorated, lots of beds and is fully stocked. Kiawah Island is beautiful, and the resort privleges made everything so easy. The owners are also fantastic and were very responsive. The only thing that prevented me from giving this 5 stars is the payment method - it would have been great to have some form of electronic method like PayPal or credit card, but check was the only method available. Being Canadian, this posed some problems from an international perspective, but was able to get a US-based friend to help me out. Other than that, this was an amazing place to stay and I hope to come back again!

A Wonderful Getaway in Kiawah

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased when we arrived at the cottage. Everthing was just perfect! We found the kitchen to be well supplied and the appliances were in great condition. The beds were very comfortable, an important thing to my husband and I. Our young grandchildren were with us and it was a short walk to the pool and about a 5 minute walk to the beach which made it convenient. We definitely recommend staying here. We will be back!

Our family loves Sunshine Daydream and Kiawah!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely love Sunshine Daydream! We recently returned from our third visit to Kiawah as a family. Our first two week long stays at Sunshine Daydream were absolutely wonderful, so we decided to add another week this year. Our two week vacation in August was even better than we could have imagined! Kiawah, itself, is such a special place to vacation, but staying in a place like Sunshine Daydream made it even more enjoyable. The cottage is clean and cheerful. It had plenty of space for my husband, myself, our three young children, and our three older children who visited for some of the vacation. The kids absolutely loved the bunk beds! I cannot safe enough good things about Sunshine Daydream and the owners! The owners were friendly and extremely easy to work with. We are very grateful for the opportunity to stay in such special place three years in a row. We are already planning and counting down the days till we can return next summer! I highly recommend Sunshine Daydream!

Wonderful home and owner!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a lovely home and worth the rental! It is located 5 minutes from Night Heron Park and the pools (resort privileges included) and about 8 minute walk to the beach. The home has been recently redone and we found the beds comfortable and the amenities in the kitchen and bedrooms great. The owner's were very nice and wanted to make sure our stay was the best. The resort amenities were well worth it for us as it gave us access to the pools and wonder Kiawah Island concierge services which we took advantage of. We will rent here again and you should too.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed 7 nights in this wonderful cottage. We had four adults and 5 children and did not feel crowded. The kids room had 4 bunk beds and was perfect for our family. The cottage is close to both Night Heron Park (pool) and the beach. The cottage was well-appointed and well-maintained. The kitchen had everything you need for meals. The owner was great to work with and very responsive to any question. We loved the place and definitely stay here again.
