Sports & Adventure Activities
One of the most fun and relaxing vacations we have ever had.
The home is well laid out with high ceilings and expansive views. The decor is elegant yet inviting and our group of 6 felt very comfortable whether sinking into the cozy couch or relaxing on the deck with a book. If vacation means totally unstressed and unhurried, then this is a wonderful vacation home. Barry was so kind to offer suggestions from the best bike rental company, to where to find the freshest seafood. We had a little electrical issue and he directed me to the box for a quick resolution and within 5 minutes, his electrician called me as well.
Although there aren't water views, the beach is close enough that you can easily hear it from the back of the house. A lovely 3-5 min walk or ride gets you to the nearest public boardwalk. The Ocean Course is about a 5 mile bike ride in one direction and Freshfields is 5.5 in the opposite direction. Basically the home could not be more centrally located.
Fabulous Home on Kiawah!!
My family and I just spent 7 awesome days at "Beachy Chic" and had an excellent stay. The owner was so accommodating and very responsive. The house was so clean, beautifully decorated, well layed out for privacy and comfort, perfectly located, the kitchen well equipped and the beds were all so comfortable with great linens, etc. The entire experience completely exceeded my expectations and I am very picky and can be a tough customer on vacation rentals!! I'm already planning my next stay for a girls' getaway! We were able to bring the family dog and it was such a joy! The beach and trails on Kiawah are so great for dogs! By the end of our stay he was completely familiar with our walks and then led ME back to house! Loved the outdoor shower for the dog especially! I loved being so comfortable in a spacious home, while still having easy access to all the amenities and restaurants Kiawah has to offer. Exploring the island and beach by rental bikes is the way to go! Can't wait to get back there! Thanks for such a great time!
Fantastic Pet Friendly Vacation home!
Our family began vacationing on Kiawah Island in the summer of 1983. We enjoyed a variety of properties throughout the years as our family grew from island property rentals to friends' rentals. We have had many, many positive experiences in a great variety of property types. Last September's property ranks as one of our very favorite for several reasons.
First, we had entertained the idea of taking our dogs but had not been able to get my husband on board.
When my daughter found this property and presented it to him, he could not say no to trying a vacation with our golden and her small terrier in such open and beautiful surroundings inside and outside this home . This added a new level of relaxation and enjoyment to our week.Second, this vacation home felt like you were visiting in someone's home you knew. It's layout is perfect for relaxing together while also offering many quiet spots for reading, napping or just enjoying a little quiet time. We love to prepare fresh meals and the open kitchen/family room was ideal for conversation while we were preparing a great meal.Third, the location to the beach was just right for our family to enjoy a short walk with the dogs to and from the beach. It was close enough to carry comfortably anything you wanted to take along to the beachor make a quick trip back for afternoon snacks.Fourth, the owner was very courteous and easy to work with- no problems in any way before or during our stay.Fifth, the house backs up to the golf course and the large desk and beautiful trees gave us space to enjoy a beautiful sunrise or sunset.
We can't wait to return in 2017!!!
House larger than depicted in pics with a great location
My daughter was married May 16 at nearby country club which is main reason I chose this house. It is also very close to Sanctuary and world famous Ocean Course. Great for entertaining as we had a large family cookout on enormous shaded back deck. Beach is short bike away with the bikes being provided by owners! Owners promptly answered all questions via text. Great customer service!!
Wonderful Family Vacation
We had the most wonderful family vacation in this home. It is extremely spacious and beautifully decorated. The location is fantastic and convenient to everything. We easily went to the beach or took a beautiful bike ride. They conveniently have bikes and beach chairs as well, which was so nice! The owner was very attentive to our needs as well. We accidentally left our Apple TV (which we didnt even need or use, as there were plenty of channels) and he promptly mailed it to us! We hope to definitely return to your beautiful home next year!
Love Beachy Chic!
We had a wonderful spring retreat at this Kiawah home. It is beautifully furnished, clean, and nestled in a lovely neighborhood. The living space was designed perfectly for sharing with family (i.e. while some watched basketball on one side of the living room, I was able to read a novel on the other). The floor to ceiling windows/sliding doors allow the entire living space to be filled with light and allow for beautiful views of the outdoors. The sofas and beds were incredibly comfortable, and we enjoyed both the large table in the living area and the kitchen table for dining and playing card games.
We feel lucky to have found such a lovely rental home that allows pets! We were able to bring our Bernese Mountain Dog along; she especially enjoyed the deck and the beach, which is a short walk away.
The house is centrally located on the island. We were able to bike to Freshfields Village and the Market at Town Center; we biked for hours during our stay, on the bike paths and on the beach. We also did a good deal of walking, and enjoyed Jasmine Porch restaurant at the Sanctuary and the Ryder Cup Bar on the Ocean Course. Charleston, one of the most charming cities, is only 30-40 minutes away and a great day trip.
We also enjoyed seeing the beautiful trees & plants, and wildlife such as deer, birds, and a few alligators (from a distance). The sunsets were magnificent!!
We definitely plan to return, and we would recommend this property to friends.
