Are you ready to experience Kiawah? Check out our rentals.
ABSOLUTELY NOT. No hidden cameras are anywhere on our properties – vacations should be enjoyed in complete privacy.
When renting through Kiawah Island Getaways you will be assured that you are getting accommodations that are clean, comfortable and close to the beach. Each bed is topped with deluxe linens, down-filled pillows (down-alternative pillows are also available in each closet), a soft down-alternative comforter and a heavenly mattress. Each kitchen is stocked with everything that you are used to at home – as well as many unexpected items such as nice wine glasses, a complete set of knives, a large array of dishes, glasses and serving bowls, a Keurig and a standard coffee pot coffee maker, french press and a coffee bean grinder. Bathrooms are all exceptionally clean, offer wonderfully-thick towels and soft rugs to step on when you get out of the shower each morning. Kiawah Island Getaways has a goal of delighting our guests when they check-in. Be sure to read the guest comments that are included on each villa’s listing.
If you are traveling with kids who want to spend lots of time at the pool, or if you are a group who plan to play golf everyday, and the comfort of your accommodations is not as high a priority as golf or the pool, then the Kiawah Island Golf Resort may be a perfect match for you. Be sure to read Kiawah Island Golf Resort Villas Guest reviews.
The Golf Resort owns the Kiawah golf courses, the Sanctuary Hotel, a fitness gym and a Kids Splash Pool at Night Heron Park. Only Golf Resort guests may use the splash pool at Night Heron and gym. However, keep in mind, the vacation rentals through the Golf Resort are not nearly the caliber of our properties.
A community pool is available for one of the properties that we manage – the Shell Seeker at Sparrow Pond – it is a lovely 3-bedroom cottage located within a 5-minute walk of the property.
If you have young kids and are interested in a splash pool, and want to enjoy staying in one of our properties, consider taking the kids to Splash Zone. Splash Zone is a FABULOUS splash park, water slides, water pumps, pools and lazy rivers. It is located on James Island, just 30 minutes from Kiawah. Visit after 3 and the rate is 1/2 price.
For our guests who enjoy keeping up their abs – try a daily pass at Anytime Fitness. This gym is located on Johns Island, about 15 minutes off the island.
Kiawah is a terrific place to bike. There are over 30 miles of flat, paved, easy to ride bike trails that wind all over the island. Biking is interwoven with the Island’s culture, and we highly recommend renting bikes to anyone visiting. You may reserve bikes here: BikeKiawah.com
I encourage you to take a look at our map of bike trails and fun spots on Kiawah. There is no better way to experience the Island! For Jeanette and Shawn’s advice for biking on the beach, check out this one minute read on our website. .
We rent portable beach chairs and boogie boards which make it easy and fun for the whole family to enjoy the beach and ride the waves!
Yes – there are beach chairs and beach umbrellas set up for you each day by the Beach Service that are available for rent 10 AM through 4 PM. As an alternative, you may rent portable beach chairs directly through us when you make your reservation. Unlike the full-service beach chairs, the portable beach chairs are great for use anytime of the day (or evening). You may also choose to rent a full-service umbrella and complement it with portable beach chairs.
A few neighborhoods on Kiawah have a community pool. We rent cottages in Sparrow Pond that have access to a neighborhood community pool. The Night Heron Pool is not available to our guests.
Yes. Located just 30 minutes from Kiawah at James Island County Park is Splash Zone. It is fabulous fun…with lazy rivers, 200′ tube slides, sprays and all sorts of water fun for kids and adults of all ages.
When you check into your villa, you will find a large notebook with all sorts of Kiawah and Charleston touring information. We have compiled many menus from the local restaurants – we also indicate our favorite’s. There is information on many of the local attractions, from plantations to information on touring downtown Charleston. There are even tips for parking and getting around Charleston. In addition to this helpful book, we also offer a laminated map of Kiawah. The map points out many areas of interest on Kiawah, such as places where the egrets typically roost (rookeries), towers that overlook the marsh, an old grave site and interesting bike and leisure trails.
Per the Town of Kiawah, grilling is not permitted on decks of any villas (condos), nor in any of the parking areas. However, grills are allowed on the decks of cottages and houses. If you are renting a house or cottage – please check the listing to see if it includes a grill.
For classic family beach photos we recommend Michael Cyra with Photographics, (843) 768-3030. Be sure to plan this event in advance – Michael books up quickly in the summer!
All properties offer plenty of down-filled pillows, duvets, heavenly bed linens, beach & bath towels – also TVs in every bedroom and living room. We even provide a beach bag and cooler for the beach! The properties are also completely furnished with a full-sized refrigerator, ice maker, dishwasher, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, blender, microwave, range, washer/dryer, pots & pans and all cooking and eating utensils. You’ll find plenty of spices, dishwashing soap, paper towels, laundry detergent, toilet paper, etc.
Check-in is easy. We will email you complete directions to the property along with the address. Simply print and bring these directions with you when you come or use your GPS. Check-in is anytime after 4 PM (unless you have arranged and paid for an early check in). We will also email your vehicle pass so you may print it at home and have it with you when you arrive on the island so you won’t need to wait in line at the Guard House to pick up your pass! Once through the gate, drive directly to the property. All of our properties are equipped with an electronic doorknob or dead bolt that opens with your unique 4-digit code (which we also will email/text to you). Access is so easy for adults and kids alike, no keys or key cards to worry about! The Guard House is open 24/7.
