KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C.; We have owned our cottage for many years. We have a local managing agent to handle check-in and check-out details to ensure your vacation is care free. Kiawah Island, from its opening in 1976, has been family oriented. Your family will have miles of bike trails to keep them busy in between swimming, tennis, golf, fishing, kayaking, beach walking, visiting the Night Heron Nature Center, shopping and sight-seeing at the Sanctuary, Town Center and the nearby Fresh Fields Village. Also, there are many restaurants and grills on the island and nearby for your dining pleasure if you want a break from eating in. You might consider having a meal pre-cooked at Newton-Farms Supermarket in Fresh Fields Village, such as shrimp or pizza, to bring back to the cottage.
There are charter boats for fishing and boat cruises available at Bohicket Marina just beyond Fresh Fields Village. For a change of pace, go to downtown Charleston, 20 miles away, for more sight-seeing, low country eating and fun events.

No where else will you find a blend of 300 years of history, art and culture with tree-lined streets, historic homes, churches, plantations, landmarks and gardens combined with modern complexes, such as, an aquarium and IMAX theater, low country and gourmet dining and shopping.
