Why Carol Pannent chose Kiawah Island

We fell in love with Kiawah Island 10 years ago and have made it our vacation destination every year. The natural beauty as well as the protected environment for our family makes it our home away from home. Over the years, we have made it our tradition to take nightly bike rides to watch the dolphins at sunset and stop at the ponds to look for alligators. The family memories we have made here are priceless.

Relaxing and beautiful vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage that had all the comforts of home and vacation in one place. We have two young children the baby monitors for both rooms allowed us to enjoy the screened patio at nap and nighttime. Also the high chair for our baby was a nice touch so we didn't have to bring one of our own. The decor of the cottage and the little personal beach theme touches made for a relaxing island feel. Short walk to the pool and beach. Having a tv in all the rooms was great. Carol was so helpful with our first time to the island giving us information about the amenities, restaurants and things to do for the kids. The entire staff at the resort was friendly and helpful. We will be back next year for more wonderful memories! Thank you so much!

So lovely, can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 8 nights in Carol's cottage, with our 2 kids (3 and 4.5 years). This home was great - just perfect for our family. Very clean, and had everything we needed. We rented bikes from the Nature Center for the week, so it was a very quick ride to get to either the beach or splash park each day. Even on foot, it's only about a 5 minute walk, with shady trees most of the way.

Everyone we met on the island, including residents, were very friendly and helpful. We met the next door neighbors and folks from 2 doors down early in our stay, and then saw them a few more times throughout the week. They were welcoming, and gave us helpful recommendations for restaurants and things to do.

Our extended family rented a cottage across the street, and I think Kiawah was a perfect place to gather! We spent more time at the beach and pool, than any vacation we've ever been on. It was so easy, relaxed, and fun - and we hope to go back very soon.

Carol was great to work with, and I would definitely recommend her cottage to friends/family. We hope to go back very soon.

Great Cottage! Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage. This is our third stay at the Night Heron cottages, and this cottage was our favorite. The master bath is upgraded nicely in this home. We really appreciated the owners letting us use their pack and play and high chair for our infant. It is a lovely home, just as pictured. We highly recommend it and look forward to renting it again for our next visit.

Wonderful week in this great cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the cottage with our two children (6 and 4) and had a fantastic stay. It was nicely designed, clean and well appointed. Also the perfect layout for a family of 4 or 5 as our girls each had a room with an adjoining bathroom and we had the separate master suite, with a great bathroom. Can't beat the location, again great with kids, right near the redesigned Night Heron pool and park. Also very close to the beach. The owners were friendly, responsive and helpful throughout. Would love to stay here again and would recommend the cottage to friends. All in all an excellent experience!
