Why Akers Ellis Rentals LLC chose Kiawah Island
Kiawah Island is a location that people travel to from near and far. Families and friends have been coming to the Island year after year and enjoy the beautiful beaches and quiet, laid back atmosphere. We chose Kiawah Island because it is anchored by one of the finest resorts in America. It was recently ranked 3rd in Conde Nast's Traveler Readers' Choice Awards. These resort amenities include a world class spa, some of the finest golf courses in all of America, two tennis centers, daily activities for children, and world class dining.
Guestbook comments from the manager
We enjoyed our stay at 155 Bufflehead. It is the best appointed house that we have rented at Kiawah and hopefully, will do so again next year. We thank you for your prompt attention to anything we called about.
