Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I feel so fortunate to have rented this wonderful condo the week of 5/23-30, 2009. We were celebrating our 28th anniversary, and wanted a romantic getaway, and Kiawah was the place!!! The condo was immaculate, warm, and welcoming. The views were unbelievable, and it was perfect weather every day we were there. The location of Windswept #5143 was ideal. The building was newly renovated, & the condo was on the 6th floor, with vaulted ceilings and a deck with beautiful views of the beach. The pelicans flew by all day, and were so close you could almost reach out and touch them. We saw dolphins both in the ocean and in the Kiawah river. It's a nature lover's dream, and a photographer's as well. We saw a twelve foot alligator in one of the ponds on our way to The Ocean Course. The course has a Bar & Grill, as well as a dining room. We opted for the grill and sat outside and watched the golfers and had the beautiful ocean view and a wonderful breeze...very enjoyable. Fresh Fields and Newton's Market were great, and our trip into Charleston for dinner was also fun....delicious seafood places, and a lot of history there. I must say, however, that just hanging out in the condo, taking walks on the beach, and just relaxing was the best part of the vacation. The condo was so nice, and the master bedroom king bed was the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in on waking up with backaches!!! It was a very lovely condo in every way, and the owners could not have been nicer. We will definitely return!!!! On a scale from 1-10, it rates a 10+++ We highly recommend this condo!!!

Fun-filled Kiawah Island vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenage boys) spent a week in early August on Kiawah Island and had a fantastic time. The condo was perfect for us. It was spacious, clean and comfortable and had amazing views of the maritime forest, beach and ocean. As soon as we arrived we saw pelicans soaring past the master bedroom window and later that evening we saw a buck wandering through the forest. We also saw several alligators and deer on the island (there are many signs warning you about the alligators so you know where to look out for them). Daria was a pleasure to deal with and provided great recommendations for restaurants and activities. There was a wide variety of things to do and something for everyone. My 18 year old son participated in tennis clinics, drills and lessons at The Sanctuary while my husband, 14 year old son and I rode our rented bikes on the island's bike trails and beach. We all enjoyed a shark fishing excursion one afternoon and a day trip to Charleston that included a carriage tour in the afternoon and a haunted history tour at night. The condo is just steps from the beach and it was easy to rent chairs and umbrellas for the week (they are set up for you and taken down each day by the rental company). We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and would definitely like to return one day.

Great Kiawah Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Daria's place on Kiawah is fantastic. We loved the location, beach and views. The 2 bedrooms were just what we needed. The living area had great views and a great TV. The kitchen was perfect. We would recommend this to any family of 4. We'll be back.

Hope to return!

  • 5 of 5

A well maintained, quality furnished, well equipped, clean, and quiet unit. Beds are extremely comfortable. Many conveniences, not seen with larger property management companies, are included which my family appreciated. Easy transaction to arrange.

Fantastic villa with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this amazing villa. The views of the sea forest and ocean are so amazing that we found ourselves perfectly content to sit and enjoy the views from the private balcony. Everything we needed was there including beach towels and a couple small coolers for days at the beach. A very comfortable and tastefully decorated space with a great master bedroom overlooking the ocean and very nice master bath. Location on the island is great and it makes for great beach walking in both directions. We celebrated our anniversary this trip but we will certainly return to this fantastic property. Many thanks to Daria for the great communication throughout the process. Thanks so much for allowing us to share this amazing villa.

Lovely condo with amazing ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in this well-located and beautifully finished and furnished condo. The views from the master bedroom have to be the best on the island. The owner has provided everything needed for our stay and her advance information packet was very helpful in planning our stay. The condo was in perfect condition and very clean. Kiawah is a wonderful destination and this was the perfect choice of a place to stay! We loved riding our bikes all over the island. We hope to be back soon.
