About Jessica Lewis

We live in Milton, Georgia, a suburb north of Atlanta. We have been coming to Kiawah since 1981 and were lucky enough to purchase our first cottage in 2004 in Oceanwoods. Our family outgrew the lovely cottage and we decided to move to a larger home as we added 2 son-in-laws, 1 daughter-in-law and 5 grandchildren.

Jessica Lewis purchased this house in 2011

Why Jessica Lewis chose Kiawah Island

We needed more space and loved how this home offered more bedrooms, bathrooms and privacy with the 2 living spaces. We loved the lot with all the live oaks and view of the Turtle Point golf course. I am sure the Flip Flop Inn will be in the family for many generations to come.

What makes this house unique

The beach of Kiawah Island drew us here year after year allowing us to make many cherished family memories. We love the beach, bike trails, Night Heron park, grilling and watching golfers miss their shots while on the deck and just spending time with family and rejuvenating our souls with time spent together.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Flip Flop is the best house on Kiawah! We loved our teacher weekend get-away! Your house has everything and is so warm and inviting! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality! We hope to come again and again!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We fit perfectly into the Flip Flop Inn! Every room was utilized and the space was great. We had two famlies each with several small children, plus a set of grandparents, and we had plenty of room. Each bedroom and living area is brightly decorated wth refreshing and "happy" beach decor, making us feel like we immediately stepped into our vacation the minute we got there. Jessica was a joy to work with--we ha so many questions as we were trying to work with 3 families' schedules, but Jessica bent over backwards to meet our needs and make the whole reservation and arrival process a breeze. The home was clean, the kitchen had every bowl, plate, and countertop appliance we needed, and the sunroom was such a great "hang out" spot for relaxing with beautiful views. We even ate on the large back porch several evenings--it had plenty of room and the weather was perfect.

The beach was a very short drive or moderatly short (but beautiful) walk away, and the coastline was gorgeous. We enjoyed walks on the beach, flying kites, and walks through the beautiful neighborhood. The golf course community was peaceful, but very closeby is an amazing playground and sports area for kids that was full of energetic families each day--we had great fun going there several times.

All in all, we loved our vacation at the Flip Flop Inn and would definitely recommend it!

PERFECT BEACH HOME

  • 5 of 5
We spent a long weekend at the FLIP FLOP INN and enjoyed every minute of it! As soon as we walked up the stairs to the home and saw the welcoming Adirondack chairs, we knew we'd come to the right place! The living area itself is so inviting, plenty of comfortable seating for lots of people, but just the right spacing so our own family of 3 still felt close to each other. I particularly loved the "nook" area where I could lounge on the love seat and read a book. At some points over the weekend, my son didn't even know I was hiding there!
The kitchen had everything you need and more! No matter what we looked for, it was available. And it seemed that way throughout the home. If you turned around in the bedrooms or bathrooms, everything was placed just right. The decor was beautifully done, and so very comfortable, it totally lends itself to relaxing and enjoying time with family (and friends). I can see how a large group would be easily accommodated, not just by all the sleeping quarters, but between the living room , the sun room, and the deck, there is always somewhere for someone to find privacy or to be with others.
The island itself is magical, but it would not have been the same in a hotel. The information provided in the book on the hall table is amazing. This made it easy for our first trip to Kiawah to know where things were, what we could do, and great places to eat. Thank you!
The Flip Flop Inn is absolutely a home away from home. Not just a beach HOUSE.

Lovely, Comfortable Home Perfect for Your Holiday

  • 5 of 5
The photos of this home are great but actually don't do it justice-- it's even more spacious and beautifully decorated and well maintained than photos can capture. We're always a bit nervous choosing a vacation home online, since you never know what you're going to get, and we're pretty picky since we've been fortunate enough to stay in several very nice places in the past. But my husband, my two 20-something children and I were all amazed when we first walked in the door at how great this place is.

We stayed here while attending the PGA Championships, and its the perfect place for a family interested in doing a little bit of everything-- golfing, beach, biking, running, shopping, eating locally or in Charleston or just grilling on the back porch.

While there were only four of us, this lovely home definitely could accommodate a larger group very comfortably given the fantastic layout, including 2 separate living areas both of which have large DVR-equipped TVs (which we used quite a bit to watch the Olympics during our stay!). There wasn't anything that we looked for that wasnt there for our use-- from the coffee grinder to the muffin pans to the spices in the cupboard to scissors and tape in the drawer.

The sofas are really comfortable, there are books and magazines (we donated some of ours when we left including our family cookbook-- so if you're lucky enough to visit the FlipFlop, look for it in the pantry cupboard!), cards, games, and just about anything else you can think of. We enjoyed the daily visits from deer, who came right up to the front and back porches to graze, and had a great time relaxing on the back porch while watching golfers putting on the 10th green of the Turtle Point course.

Best of all was the great attention/service provided by the home manager, who answered all of our questions promptly, knowledgeably and cheerfully both before and during our vacation.

We're very fortunate to have found the FlipFlop Inn for our vacation, and HIGHLY recommend it without any reservation whatsoever to anyone looking for a place to stay while in Kiawah.

Owner's Response: Linda,
We are speechless with your review. We believe these things about our Flip Flop Inn but to hear it from others that have chosen ours out of all of the online beach rentals, you have touched our hearts. Thank you for all that you have said and you're very welcome for being accommodating, we not only appreciate having nice people in our home, but people that treat our home the way you have. We also stay there quite often so having it well stocked means a lot to everyone! We personally rent cabins every fall and some are not so nicely equipped or comfortable to stay in so we take notes each time we stay somewhere. We also believe the motto of "treat others as you wish to be treated!" And more than that, for most, this is their one shot at a vacation, so we need to make it count for all it is worth!

Thank you greatly for your glowing comments and THANK YOU for choosing the Flip Flop Inn for your family vacation! As well as being our insiders for the PGA!

Flip Flop Inn gives you a hug and says relax!

  • 5 of 5
The Flip Flop Inn is wonderful! It honestly seemed to just hug us and say "relax". The colors were cheerful and beachy (to remind us we were on vacation) and we had so much room to curl up and read, do puzzles, watch tv or just take a nap. We have been to Kiawah now for the past twelve years (we love it!) but honestly this was the best. I especially appreciate how clean it was (not always our experience in years past). Thank you so much for allowing us to use your home, we all totally enjoyed our stay. Thank you also for being so kind and helpful every step of the way.

Wonderful house, great vacation

  • 5 of 5
The Flip Flop Inn was charming, comfortable and roomy enough to accommodate our 10 people easily. The kitchen was well appointed, the beds were super comfortable, the decoration so cute and cozy. The view of the golf course was lovely. The sun room offered a good place for people to go in the morning before everyone else woke up. All the rooms had their own bathroom was made cleanup after the beach so much easier. Communication from the owner was thorough and informational. It was about a five minute bike ride or a 10 minute walk to the beach - easily handled by the kids and the elders in our group. I would highly recommend this house.
