We spent a great weekend for the Kiawah marathon here. It was very close to the start and after the race it was wonderful to go to the beach. It was very quiet at night.
We are West-Coasters and this was our first time in South Carolina. Met our son and his family (including a 1 and 3 year old) for a weeks vacation.
Our unit was perfect for us, with plenty of space, beds, bathrooms and a nicely stocked kitchen. Our only suggestion to the host is that the washer and dryer appeared to need repair or replacing; we had one garment get rust stains due to some deterioration in the washer drum, and the dryer took three cycles to dry a normal load of clothes, even after we removed clothes to make it even less crowded. We emailed the property manager, so with luck this issue will be resolved for future guests. We would definitely stay in this unit again should our travels take us back to Kiawah Island.
The property itself is mainly a golf destination. While three of us golfed once, it was not our main focus. There was a fabulous pool (actually two- more 'adult size' and a huge kiddie pool), within walking distance with plenty of shaded seating, and a good pool food service. We spent most of our time there. The children loved it. The beach was also a short walk away. Unfortunately we were there during a record heat wave, and so spent limited time on the beach. Had it been a bit cooler I know we would have enjoyed that as well.
We had a few disappointments with the property itself (not related to our unit). We are used to doing a lot of cooking during vacations like this, and mostly rely on a BBQ. When I inquired at the front desk I was told there were BBQs on the property, but inspection of them found them to be old, rusted, not maintained, and the kind you would need to bring charcoal brackets and lighter fluid. We assume BBQing is discouraged (?fire hazards?).
Secondly, we were not impressed with the check-in process and lack of information at the Resort desk. Rather than offer us information about facilities as part of the registration, we found ourselves having to ask numerous questions, many of which were not answered well. For example, the map of the large property made it confusing to figure out access to the beaches. When we asked, they pointed to where we could park, when in fact it was a short walk from our unit, had they shown us that. In general, the staff at the resort were wonderful, friendly, and efficient. The check-in was the only place lacking in customer service.
Thanks to the host for your hospitality.
Well located and a good value
The condo is as advertised. It definitely needs a little updating, but it was clean and the lay-out was very good for our family (with three teenage boys). The fact that each bedroom had a nice TV and the wi-fi was decent meant that everyone had a little space when needed. You will spend most of the time out on the beach, at the pool, Sanctuary, or golf/tennis facilities, and the condo is close to all of that. Our fav activity was taking bikes down the beach to the Ocean Course bar and grabbing lunch or a drink, and then riding back via the bike paths. The bar is fantastic.
Perfect location in a spacious condo.
Our trip to Kiawah was fantastic. We took advantage of the bike trails daily. From this property to the beach or pool was just a 1-2 minute bike ride or a 5 minute walk. The condo had a typically stocked kitchen which was quite clean. The eating area and family room were comfortable. We enjoyed having the 3 full baths but the bathrooms are a bit dated. There is a back porch and a screened in porch and both of these were filthy-covered in dirt and cob webs.
The night heron pool/park were very nearby and fun for our children. I would definitely stay in this same area of Kiawah next time we come back!
Kid's camp, nature tours, soccer, sand volleyball, archery and more!
