Beautiful ocean get away. Quiet and peaceful. The morning beach walks were perfect. The Inlet Cove location was the central to enjoying the ocean as well as local attractions such as the Angel Oak, Magnolia Plantation and Charleston.

We had a joyous time...55 years to 94 year olds!! The villas and private residences are fabulous. All of the amenities, services and conveniences of a resort. Beware of critters though...they like the beauty of the island too. Very close to Charleston and The Sanctuary...quaint shoppes and dining facilities. Private beach for miles...late April was fabulous!

The visit to Kiawah at The Sanctuary and time spent on the beach was great. The beach was not crowded at all. Had a great day there.

This is a beautiful Private Island. It is nice because the crowds are well controlled. The beaches are beautiful and natural. The streets are quiet and most of the homes have lovely porches to enjoy the nice evenings. Great bike paths and views. Riding on the beach is permitted. We go back every year for the last four years, and... More

Love the island feel. A little tough to figure out the roads. It's secluded and like your own private manicured resort. The sand is perfect and easy accessible from the ocean view villa. Didn't use the shuttle, but that's a great amenity.

Our group of 8 has vacationed on Kiawah Island for a week during each of the last two years in April. In 2016, the weather was somewhat cool and cloudy. In 2017, it was perfect; no rain, sunshine and highs in the mid-to-upper 70's. We spent several days at the beach, where there was a comfortable breeze. Kiawah Island is... More

We are beach lovers and the beach and weather we're amazing. The sand is hard and great for bike riding. Wear sneakers if you walk.

This is one of the most beautiful trips we have made on the coast. We loved the condo we stayed in which was right on the beach. There was so much to do and everything was so convenient. We loved the golf at Turtle Point and Osprey. We would definitely go again. We wished we could have stayed longer.
