Reviewer Comments:

We have stayed several times on Kiawah Island and in several different locations. This was our favorite to date. We were with our family of 14, 3 generations, and all agreed that the location and the house could not be beat. We rarely used our car while here ....rented and rode bikes or took the very short walk to the beach. Enjoyed the beautiful pool and the many decks. We were very pleased with renting through Akers Ellis once again. Our orientation to the home upon arrival was excellent and the few times we had questions or a problem, it was quite easy to get ahold of someone and we were always very satisfied with our answers and/or results. All 14 of us said this was one of the best vacations ever and we all hope to return.

Reviewer Comments:

Everything about this home was wonderful as far as the accommodations and decorating, etc. However the kitchen needs a major overhaul as fall as the utilities go. Missing a lot of items and disorganized. It would have been nice for housekeeping to not show up an hour early on checkout day too.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of this home. We appreciate your feedback. We are speaking with the owner regarding the kitchen items and apologize for housekeeping showing up early. They certainly shouldn't have been there before 10AM! Please let us know if we can help you in getting your 2017 Kiawah Island vacation rental booked. We look forward to working with you again!
