About Akers Ellis Rentals LLC

We LOVE the ocean, golf, the wilderness, birdwatching, 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

Our family loved the rental on Forestay Court, so we would definitely rate our experience and that property as a TEN! Each year, we get together with our sons and their families and spend a week or more together. While at Kiawah, we were able to absorb the history of Charleston, eat at fine restaurants, ride bicycles through the many paths in the shade of beautiful trees and plants, take short walks to the beach, sit on the lovely porches of the home in the evenings (or have coffee on the porches as the sun came up), and swim in the pool on the deck. Our family has already talked about the possibility of returning sometime next year.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is GORGEOUS! Everything about 70 Forestay screams A1! But, the housekeeping needs special detail. The baseboards,corners of ceilings need to be cleaned and free of dirt, dust and cob webs. Some of the living area furniture could be cleaned or upholstered. Other than those few cosmetic touch ups the stay was well enjoyed by all. I will definitely use Akers Ellis again for my future vacation needs. Thanks to Amanda and Kenley for ALL of your help, you both are amazing!

Reviewer Comments:

We had two other families staying with us and used every bedroom. There was plenty of space and we loved having separate baths. House was clean and kitchen was stocked. There were pool and beach toys, boogie boards which was a bonus. Easy walk to beach and pool was a necessity since it was so hot. Cons: house is very warn. Lots of stains on couches, chairs, bedspreads, carpets. Mattresses need to be replaced.

Fabulous Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our tennis team of 8 (older) women stayed in this property during a tournament. It was truly wonderful in every respect. The furnishings, the location -- every detail was perfect. I gave it my highest recommendation and would have given it even more stars if they were available!!

Our family spent a week here in late April...house is a few steps from the beach ( really!) Everyone had their own bedroom & bathroom - home was in outstanding condition upon arrival...clean & everything that was suppose to work...worked. You could not ask for a better location...really! Great home for a large family gathering...the pool was perfect to cool off and for kids. Overall - a wonderful home on a beautiful Island
