Perfect beach condo ....

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this condo from 6/13 to 6/20. It is perfectly located on a beautiful beach. The entire island is a gated community. Hard to believe, but true. We are not golfers, but beach lovers. We loved having the beach a few steps away. The condo is one room but never feels too small. Great use of space. The owners are very engaged and available by email and cell phone. We did make some suggestion and hope that the owners will bring in a different cleaning crew. The space is perfect for a couple. We cooked and ate all of our meals in the condo. There is a great Harris Teeter close by that is very well stocked. With a few tweaks, the condo will indeed be perfect.

We will miss the beach and the wonderful walks we took every morning! This is a great place for couples who just want a quiet place to be and relax and enjoy a beautiful beach!

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful, relaxing weekend on the beach! The condo was a perfect home base for us during our three night stay and the owners were so professional and accommodating to us. The Straw Market is just a half block away with ice cream, coffee and a restaurant. We loved all the bike paths are perfect for our rented bikes and walking. Thanks for a our "second honeymoon"!

Great Place to R & R

  • 5 of 5

First time to the Charleston area. This condo made an excellent home base to explore not just Charleston since it was so close but all the surrounding areas/beaches. Very comfortable place and nicely decorated. We liked having all the literature and brochures in the condo to get a lay of the land and what was available to see and do. During our visit the villa was very peaceful and not busy...just very relaxing. The access to the beach was amazing!...just a short walk from the elevator...awesome! We enjoyed the many places to see wildlife, birdwatch and hike...Kiawah Island, Botany Bay Plantation, Caw Caw Interpretive Center and the Edisto Island Serpentarium were some favorites. The weekly price for this condo was more than worth it...what a great time we had! The owners are easy to work with and we thank them for sharing their condo.

Best kept secret at Kiawah

  • 5 of 5

We had such a delightful stay at this condo. very well decorated and just steps from the beach., The owners were great to work with and I cannot wait to go back and stay in their condo. Very clean studio. Added plus was the laundry facilities at no charge. The beach area is very secluded and we had lots of fun riding bikes on all the bike paths.

This place is a definite RENT!!!!

Loved our stay....thank you so much

Great getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Our first ever trip to Kiawah Island had us wondering why we didn't discover it sooner! It was the perfect place to spend spring break. The weather was phenomenal, the setting pristine, and the much-needed relaxation a given. The condo provided a great setting to unwind after a lazy day at the beach, riding bikes or exploring the island. The owners were kind enough to mail us a DVD we accidentally left in the machine!
