Guestbook comments from the owner

The amenities were very nice and the pool was heated. Obviously a lot of care goes into maintaining this home. Having rented many over the years on Kiawah, this was by far the best. First time renting outside the resort and the experience was easy and flawless. Finally, the owner was very nice and accommodating.

beautiful spacious home in great location

  • 5 of 5

this was our 4th stay in 21 Bufflehead and we are always completely satisfied with the house, the amenities and the location. Spacious and light- with many beds and baths to accommodate our large group, everything we could need (towels, kitchen tools, wireless, pool chairs, etc) was provided. The home is a quick 3-4 min bike ride to a quiet part of the beach or a 8-10 min walk. The pool is a perfect alternative to the beach and is clean and warm! The house is in great condition and was very clean upon our arrival. New dishwasher and refrigerator were added since our visit last summer- couldn't ask for anything more. The owner is responsive and very helpful- we love the house and can't wait to return.

Great house on a beautiful island!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion this past week and the house didn't disappoint. We rented bikes and the trip to the beach was a short pleasant ride. Bike riding is a must as the island has wonderful trails with amazing scenery. Some of our crew fished close by in the lagoon. The house was big enough so we didn't run into one another (14) and the kitchen accommodated those of us who love to cook. We enjoyed the pool which is conveniently located off the living area so you could keep an eye on children easily. There is a elevator for those who have trouble with the steps. Our granddaughters enjoyed the 3rd floor bunk bed rooms where they could play Wii and hideaway from adults. We were concerned it was a bit warm up there at times but it turned out to be ok. We had a slight problem with the grill which we reported and was immediately fixed. A wonderful week. I would highly recommend this house and the owner Sherri was extremely helpful with any questions we had. Thank you!!

Great house, great location.

  • 4 of 5

We had 6 adults and 5 teenagers for Beach Week. We cooked in and had good times together. It was close to the beach and we came back each day to enjoy the pool.

This home was absolutely perfect for our four families. With a bunk room for the 6 boys, a room for the 2 girls and nice rooms for the couples, but still plenty of hang out space, we had a great vacation. The house was beautiful and outfitted nicely. The outdoor covered porch and pool was an all day hang out area when we didn't take advantage of the short bike ride to the beach. Add a ping pong table to the basement and we would have never left!
