OK place

  • 2 of 5

This place has pros and cons. I read all of the reviews before I booked and thought certainly people were over reacting, turns out all were true.

Pros:

location is awesome

bedroom/bathroom nice

easy check in/check out

Cons:

-if you're looking for a comfortable rental, this is NOT your place. This is not a home away from home, a place you can relax indoors.

-cookware and furniture are dingy and dirty and old. we had to hold down the tea kettle to the stove to heat up water.

-windows were dirty and porch was disgusting - yes I know it's outdoors but cobwebs EVERYwhere I couldn't relax and the porch is the #1 reason I booked this place. Screen door was hard to open/close.

-AC is loud (didn't bother us much, but others it might)

-living area/kitchen is small, which was a given but online pictures do a great job of making this place look really great and I was very disappointed from the second I walked in - expectations were set high based on pictures.

-if you're looking for a quiet place, again, this is not it unless people are not staying above you. I woke up many times in the middle of the night/morning to what I can only conclude as a herd of elephants in the above unit.

Overall - we LOVED the location and this place gave us a bed to sleep in and a kitchen to cook in. But it was NOT the comfy, cozy vacation rental we hoped to stay in. I'm not sure we'll be back at this rental and not sure I can recommend it either.

Reviewer Comments:

We had so much fun on our first trip to Kiawah! This villa had a great location to the beach. It was so easy to run back to get extra drinks or use the restroom! We had 2 adults and 2 small children and this villa was a little small for all 4 of us, but we made it work. The furniture could really use some updating but the place was spotless! The pictures also show a table 4 four on the porch, however only half of that table was there with only 2 chairs. We will definitely be back to Kiawah and would recommend Akers Ellis. The mobile app was very useful and check in and out was easy. Also, loved the coffee that was provided!

Reviewer Comments:

There were pros and cons of this villa. The ease of booking and having the app to check in/check out with was very nice and handy. The location was great, just a minutes walk from a beautiful beach! The island is wonderful and the beach is magnificent. There were not big crowds on the beach and the paths around the island were great for walking. A few things we did find disappointing though. The villa was outdated and could use some upgrades. The villa was reasonably priced though so I guess that explains why. I thought the villa could have been cleaned better. You could barely see out out the door going to the screened in porch because it was so dirty. The cushions on the porch were also dirty. The air conditioner was also very noisy to the point where we had to sleep with both bathroom doors and the bedroom door closed to try to drown it out. There were also tiny caterpillar type bugs that we found numerous ones of each day. I guess that's a common occurrence being close to a beach and nature but it seemed a little excessive to me. The dishwasher also did not work on the Normal setting. I understood it was a private island and the villa did not include pool access but I wish it would have been disclosed that you would not be able to go to the other side of the island (there's another security gate there that our passes did not let us through with). We couldn't go to some of the parks and areas of the other island we wanted to see because of this. You could bike or walk there but that was not a feasible option for us.
