Vacation in a Villa on Remote Kiawah Island

Kiawah Island, just 25 miles south of Charleston, was named the #1 golf resort destination in America by Travel + Leisure Golf Magazine. This barrier island hosts five of the most challenging courses on the East Coast, providing adventures from densely wooded interior areas to the breezy oceanfront. Visitors are offered lodging in villas on and near the golf courses in addition to cottages, condos, homes, and townhomes with wooded or waterfront views of the ocean and lakes, in downtown locations, and more.

Golf

The Kiawah Island Club Golf Academy runs a state-of-the-art learning center with a complete range of instructional programs focusing on technique, mental training, golf fitness, and club fitting.

The Ocean Course was designed by the renowned architect, Pete Dye. This course, considered one of the most challenging on the East Coast, has hosted Ryder Cup, World Cup, and Senior PGA Championships, and been featured in several movies.

The Turtle Point Golf Course was designed by Jack Nicklaus to present a true test for strategy and accuracy. This diverse course has held important championships, including The Carolinas’ Amateur, The Carolinas’ PGA, The South Carolina Amateur and The 1990 PGA Cup Matches.

Designed by Tom Fazio, Osprey Point Golf Course is popular with members and guests alike. This 72-par course makes extensive use of Kiawah's maritime forests, saltwater marshes, and lagoons, and players adore its variety and playability.

The Oak Point Golf Course, designed by renowned architect Clyde Johnston, challenges players to utilize a strategic approach over pure power. Surrounded by Kiawah's maritime forest, Oak Point's undulating fairways and challenging greens near the Kiawah River and Haulover Creek present unique challenges that are ideal for making shots.

The Cougar Point Golf Course, redesigned by Gary Player, was recently rated Golf Course of the Year by the South Carolina Golf Course Owners Association. This course is praised for providing unique challenges for strategy along with striking views of the region.

Play Tennis

The Kiawah Tennis Resort was rated the #1 Tennis Resort in the World and #1 Best Tennis Instruction and Programming by Tennis Resorts Online. It has two complete tennis complexes on the island. The Roy Barth Tennis Center features nine Har-Tru clay courts and three hard courts, and The West Beach Tennis Club has 10 Har-Tru courts and two lighted hard courts.

Sprawl Out at the Sanctuary Spa

The Spa at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort offers refreshment from head to toe with body treatments, facials, hair, and nail care. Indulge your body with therapeutic massages and private yoga or Pilates exercise classes.

Weather in Kiawah

Kiawah has a humid subtropical climate with summer temperatures ranging from the high 80s to low 90s during the day and low 70s at night. Winters in Kiawah are considered mild, with temperatures averaging 60 degrees in the day and overnight lows in the 40s. This region experiences precipitation year-round, but is rarely confronted with dangerous storm events.

How to Get There

If you're driving in from a nearby vicinity, there are a number of interstate highways that can deliver you to Kiawah, otherwise, you'll arrive at Charleston International Airport in South Carolina and rent a car or taxi to complete your journey. The drive from Charleston Airport to Kiawah takes about an hour, and it's highly recommended that you obtain meticulous directions and make the trip during daylight hours, as the two-lane country road travels through terrain that is praiseworthy during the day and precarious at night.

                                                              Beautiful home and great location!

                                                              Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a great stay at this home! When we first arrived, music was playing, rooms were lit, and each of the bathrooms had soaps, lotions, and shampoos. All a nice touch after a long day of travel. The kitchen was well equipped. We were a group of seven adults and there was enough room to spread out and go off on our own for some quiet time. The path to the beach is very close by. The only drawback is that two of the bedrooms are really for children only. The mattresses had plastic covering so they were not very comfortable. Also, don't use Siri to find restaurants on the island! She will take you to The Sanctuary even if a restaurant is not located on that property. We rented bikes during our stay which is a great way to tour the island. It was extremely easy working with the property manager. They provided excellent customer service from beginning to end. I would definitely rent this property again!

The unit was fantastic and the service from Akers Ellis was great. I'm sure we'll be back in touch to book for another trip to Kiawah next year.

                                                              Great 1 bedroom- close to beach

                                                              The property had everything we needed. I was pleased with how the kitchen was stocked with enough pots, pans, and utensils so we could cook a few meals. The back porch is screened in to keep the bugs out and that was definitely a plus. Short walk or bike ride to the beach, ice cream shop, restaurant and souvenir shop. We could hear the ocean at night. Owner contacted me upon arrival to make sure we arrived safely and found the property to be satisfactory. The place was clean and well maintained. I would return or recommend the place to family and friends.
