A tropical palm lined paved path invites you for a 5 minute walk to your beach chair and umbrella on the 15 mile long beach. Umbrellas and chairs can be rented at the bottom of beach access 18, our beach access, also called Night Heron park beach access.

A festive cocktail, burger or caesar salad with fried oysters or kids activities and games call you from the beach or cottage to Night Heron pool, another short 5 minute walk. See the animals at the nature center, play some basketball or soccer in the park. Enjoy the seasonal festivals in the park with live music and games. Enroll the kids in Kamp Kiawah and enjoy some mom and dad time alone!

A stroll or bike ride on the wide flat beach for ½ mile leads to the 5 star Sanctuary Hotel and Spa. Shop for that special gift, enjoy Sunday brunch at Jasmine Porch or have a glass of champagne by the fire in the piano bar. What about a massage or facial at the luxury spa?

Five golf courses meandering through the low country foliage and following the beach await your round. Golf clinics for adults and kids are offered and family golf on Turtle Point Golf Course is a pleasure for all! The Ocean Course has hosted many PGA events and is hosted the 2012 PGA championship. You have to see the newly renovated clubhouse and have a beer or tea at the Ryder Cup bar!

Kiawah was also sited as the top tennis resort. Two state of the art tennis areas await your serve. There are also tennis clinics offered for adults and children year round.

Many on island dining options abound. Have a casual soup and sandwich or order pizza to go at the East beach market, fabulous italian in a clubhouse setting at Tomassos in Turtle Point, or fine dining at the Atlantic Room or Ocean Room. There is also Jasmine Porch, Loggerhead Grill, Shrimpers, and Night Heron grill.

If Kiawah Island is not enough, how about a shopping spree at Freshfields Village? Complete with many restaurants including Heges(wonderful french dining), GDC home, The Resort Shop, Pink Boulevard(Lilly Pulitzer), Harris Teeter grocery and much more. By car it's only 7 minutes away from home or you can take a leisurely bike ride there.

Go a little further and visit Bohicket Marina and charter your boat or take in some raw bar fare and a beer at Red's.

Charleston is only 30 minutes away! Carriage ride, ghost tour or historic home or garden walk anyone? Museums, aquarium, dining and shopping? The cobblestone streets whisper sweet southern 'nothins' in your ear.

All in all you can't beat Sunshine Daydream and Kiawah! We have only touched on a few highlights. You will be hooked as soon as you drive in the gate!

The Best of All Possible Worlds

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cottage for a week in mid August 2016. We have stayed in Kiawah many times, and this is our favorite neighborhood. Everything is nearby (beach access, bike paths, Night Heron Park and Pool). The cottage itself is darling. It's quite clean and the kitchen is well stocked. The refrigerator has a filter - so no need to buy and haul water in. The best part about this property is that you have resort privileges - which means access to the lovely Night Heron pool, and some other perks. I couldn't have asked for anything more - it was a perfect spot for my husband and I and 4 teenagers to spend a perfect week. The owners were delightful to work with, though we had no issues to resolve with the cottage during our stay. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Kiawah.

Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is the best of both worlds.... Beach and Night Herron are just a walk/short bike ride away! The outside shower was fantastic as we had 4 kiddos with us and it kept the sand from coming inside. We stayed in 3 nights and cooked dinner and the kitchen was nicely appointed. The bunk room was great for 4 young girls!

Having resort privledges is a must from maintainence issues quickly resolved, fresh towels and pool access at night Herron! We had a great time here! The owners were fantastic to work with directly.

Perfect little spot in Kiawah

  • 4 of 5

My first reaction on seeing this little gem of a place was that it looks so much better than in the pictures! Perfectly situated, this cottage is fantastic for families or a group of friends. I came with a group of girls for a bachelorette spa weekend, and we couldn't have picked a better spot. The cottage is modern and spacious, clean, well decorated, lots of beds and is fully stocked. Kiawah Island is beautiful, and the resort privleges made everything so easy. The owners are also fantastic and were very responsive. The only thing that prevented me from giving this 5 stars is the payment method - it would have been great to have some form of electronic method like PayPal or credit card, but check was the only method available. Being Canadian, this posed some problems from an international perspective, but was able to get a US-based friend to help me out. Other than that, this was an amazing place to stay and I hope to come back again!

A Wonderful Getaway in Kiawah

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased when we arrived at the cottage. Everthing was just perfect! We found the kitchen to be well supplied and the appliances were in great condition. The beds were very comfortable, an important thing to my husband and I. Our young grandchildren were with us and it was a short walk to the pool and about a 5 minute walk to the beach which made it convenient. We definitely recommend staying here. We will be back!

Our family loves Sunshine Daydream and Kiawah!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely love Sunshine Daydream! We recently returned from our third visit to Kiawah as a family. Our first two week long stays at Sunshine Daydream were absolutely wonderful, so we decided to add another week this year. Our two week vacation in August was even better than we could have imagined! Kiawah, itself, is such a special place to vacation, but staying in a place like Sunshine Daydream made it even more enjoyable. The cottage is clean and cheerful. It had plenty of space for my husband, myself, our three young children, and our three older children who visited for some of the vacation. The kids absolutely loved the bunk beds! I cannot safe enough good things about Sunshine Daydream and the owners! The owners were friendly and extremely easy to work with. We are very grateful for the opportunity to stay in such special place three years in a row. We are already planning and counting down the days till we can return next summer! I highly recommend Sunshine Daydream!
