About Akers Ellis Rentals LLC

We LOVE the ocean, golf, the wilderness, bird watching, and the close proximity to some of the finest dining in downtown Charleston.

Why Akers Ellis Rentals LLC chose Kiawah Island

Kiawah Island is a location that people travel to from near and far. Families and friends have been coming to the Island year after year and enjoy the beautiful beaches and quiet, laid back atmosphere. We chose Kiawah Island because it is anchored by one of the finest resorts in America. It was recently ranked 3rd in Conde Nast's Traveler Readers' Choice Awards. These resort amenities include a world class spa, some of the finest golf courses in all of America, two tennis centers, daily activities for children, and world class dining.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay at 155 Bufflehead. It is the best appointed house that we have rented at Kiawah and hopefully, will do so again next year. We thank you for your prompt attention to anything we called about.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great family vacation. Age range in our group was 1yr old to 73 yrs old. The location was great. The house is across the street from the short path that leads to the beach. The pool/spa was very nice. Everyone had plenty of space. We had an issue with one of the ovens not working and the pumps on the pool switched off but they both were serviced quickly. I would definitely recommend renting bikes and beach chairs. Thank you for an awesome week! We'll be back!

Reviewer Comments:

This is our second time renting this house. We love the beachy feel, the pool and the location. We found the outdoor deck dirty when we arrived. Akers had their folks take care of it. The outdoor chair cushions were filthy. The grill was very dirty and their were no cleaning tools. The second can of propane was empty - luckily we didn't have to use it. The dishwasher needs help - missing wheels make it very hard to load/unload - typical of Bosch dishwashers. The toiletries were not consistent in the bathrooms either on arrival or mid-stay clean. Overall, we think AE needs to check this place out between rentals to ensure the renters are getting the house in the condition they contracted for. AE's knowledge of what was in the home as far as baby equipment was a bit lacking. We ended up hauling portable highchairs in our suitcases when the house already had two. Also, the master bedroom is freezing and there is no way to turn down the air in that room without having the downstairs get really warm. That's the negative, but we do love the rental and hope to be back next year.

Owner's Response: Hello, We appreciate your feedback and are very glad to hear you love the home. We can definitely address the few items you mentioned during the next turn. It does get difficult to guarantee items such as baby equipment in our rentals simply because they are all individually owned. Items like that are added and removed frequently by guests. We always recommend bringing or renting the non-guaranteed items, just in case. We can also mentioned the non consistent toiletries with our housekeeping staff. Again, thank you for letting us know.

The house and location was excellent. we really enjoyed the pool and all of the amenities that the house provided. The only negative item was the bed and pillows. They need to be replaced especially in the master bedroom.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for 6 nights on grandkids' spring break. I cannot say enough about the wonderful and beautifully decorated home. It is the most well-equipped of any rental home I have stayed in, and we do this 2-3 times a year. Kitchen has EVERYTHING including sippy cups and kid spoons. Location is terrific, 5 minute walk to beach. The private, heated pool and spa were a big selling point. The ONLY suggestion is replacing the mattresses ... they are very hard and uncomfortable. While we would and probably will rent this home again, if mattresses have not been changed I'd have to bring a foam rubber topper as I had trouble sleeping. But the house was SO wonderful otherwise that we would all do this. We had two seniors (55+) with us and I'd recommend it as long as stairs are not a problem. House had an elevator but it was not available for use ... if it works, I'd suggest offering it for an additional fee.
