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:

Our rental experience was overwhelmingly positive. The house is very spacious, was in very good condition, was very clean, had lots of nice amenities (pool, hot tub, outdoor grill, ample kitchen supplies, separate ice maker, etc) and was close enough to walk to the beach. A couple of things that could have been better, all fairly minor but still worth nothing: the beds were all very stiff, the pool area did not seem to get a lot of sun and there was a good amount of debris in the pool and pool area every day due to the overhanging trees. All in all, I have high standards with regard to lodging on vacations, and I would stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:

Island is beautiful. House is in a great location, very easy walk to the beach. Pictures they have posted of the home are accurate, very nice house and would rent again. The only cons: need new pillows and mattresses are on the hard side. Back deck area could use a refresh and bathroom outside by pool needs to be cleaned or sewer fixed.

The rental home at 155 Bufflehead Drive was perfect. It was beautiful, spacious and had everything we needed for our group of 8 people. The beach was a short 5 minute walk away and you could even ride your bikes on the beach which was fun! We enjoyed the Mingo Point Oyster Roast one night, the Freshfields Village area, The Ryder Cup restaurant with a beautiful view of the ocean as well as the yummy BBQ at Ospry Point's Cherrywood BBQ and Ale House. Kiawah is a wonderful place for families with so many activities and something for everyone! We had a slight problem with one of the bathroom showers while we were there, but reported it and Akers Ellis has someone out to repair it right away. We would most definitely recommend 155 Bufflehead!

We enjoyed our time at the house, despite very inclement weather. Our only criticism would be the pool. It is so heavily shaded there is constantly a large amount of debris in the pool. Some tree trimming might be in order. The house was clean and well equipped, and the location is terrific.

Reviewer Comments:

My extended family had a marvelous stay at this property over Christmas 2015. The home was ideally suited for our multi-generational family with a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy. We cooked several family meals there and the kitchen was well equipped. Attention to a few minor issues would make this place "perfect": 1) upgrading the bedding--particularly the pillows and comforters; and 2) better cleaning of the pool and spa to clear the leaves (since the charge is $75/day to heat pool and spa (+$125)--better maintenance cleaning would be appreciated. Working with the Akers-Ellis folks was great--responsive and personal.
