Kiawah is magical! And this rental puts you at the heart of the magic! It’s about a 5 minute bike ride to the beach, 4 minutes to the neighborhood pool available with your stay, on a pond with great views and a humongous alligator, and within 2 miles of multiple amazing sunset tower views and 5 minutes of an amazing sunset at bass lake. We only left the island twice to go to the grocery and a trip to the marina in Charleston to visit some family. We will definitely be back again - this was perfect for our family of 4 (girls age 6 and 10)
First off, I have to say the property owner, Art, was the most considerate and attentive experience for us. We booked just 3 days before leaving on a holiday weekend, he accommodated us in every way and even checked in several times.
The condo was very comfortable and rates were very reasonable. We really enjoyed the beach and especially dining (expensive but delicious). We plan to book again in the future!
It felt like a leap of faith to send a check to a stranger but Trip Advisor reviews gave me faith and we weren't let down. Forgoing broker fees saved us money and had no downside. The villa was in fine shape, had all we needed, and was in a great location. We had a mishap with our car rental out of Charleston and ended up taking Uber to get to the villa. Renting bikes in advance from Alligator made it easy to get everywhere. Being right next to the Sanctuary allowed us easy access to dinners there, which worked out well. We biked to Fresh Fields for breakfast/lunch. The location, condition, and ease of rental made this place terrific. If you must have wi-fi, just follow up with Art, the owner. There was a box that needed installing but it will likely be done by the time you visit. Enjoy the lush wonderful island!
We enjoyed our last minute trip to Kiawah so much! Our trip was a spur of the moment weekend getaway for two moms and our kids. The owner, Art, was fantastic to work with us and responded very quickly. The condo is in a great location on the island, very central. We were able to fish, bike, go to the beach, find alligators, the works!! The owners were very accommodating and so helpful. We definitely be back.
This condo was very roomy and comfortable. Along with being super clean, it had everything you would need for a nice beach vacation. The owner Art was wonderful to deal with and made our trip a piece of cake. Thanks Art for sharing your place with us!
The vacation on Kiawah Island was so much fun. The condo was clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen and in general. It was close enough to the beach by bike and has access to 2 pools there. It was close to Night Heron Park where the town does something most days of the week. We played laser tag, saw a magic show, played archery tag, saw a animal education session from the SC Aquarium, and laughed at an Improv Show.
Using some articles provided by the owner, we got to see dolphins strand feeding. It was amazing. We also stopped by the SC Aquarium, caught fish in the Bohicket Marina fishing tournament, and managed a ride all the way to Freshfields for lunch. We enjoyed riding all over the island every day.
It was very comfortable condo with cold air conditioning and a beautiful patio overlooking a lagoon. We saw an alligator, anhinga, and an osprey from the patio.
We're looking forward to our next trip.
