The arrival staff was great.The Ocean Course is in a class by itself. Highly recommend our caddies Tyler and Mike-they know their stuff. Our experience at Turtle Point was totally opposite. The greens were rock hard,Collars and surrounds rough at best.The greens were littered with unrepaired ball marks. Not what we expected on a premier property. Don't play this course...

The condo was very comfortable and well appointed. The one minute walk to the beach through the overhanging trees was nice. All the restaurants were great. The service and food were exceptional. The shuttle for the island is a great idea and removes the hassle of driving.

We stayed in a condo, so we could have room to spread out and enjoy. It was great to have a kitchen to be able to have some food where we stayed. The weather in November on the coast of SC is fabulous.

Stayed in a Villa Resort, spacious, well equipped and very clean. Ocean Course is a must do (we played it twice). Other courses are average to slightly above average for resort courses. Ocean Room restaurant quite overpriced, particularly the wine list. Suggest going off campus if you're looking for a good steak dinner.

I have stayed at this location twice. The staff are very attentive, the ground impeccable. This year we walked out of our villa to find two deer just standing and nibbling on the foliage. The transportation provided on property is very useful.

The accommodation was a very nice one bedroom, one bath unit, with full kitchen, dining room and living room combination, plus a screened porch.

Spent the weekend at one of the "Windswept" Condos on the Resort. Accommodations were first class. We had reserved a three bedroom apartment which came with three bathrooms, perfect .for grandparents, parents and two kids. Maid service was included. The Condo was a very convenient 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach which provide many entertainment options. On Saturday evening...

I was delighted to reside in this spacious, spotless property perched amidst the trees of Kiawah Island, which afforded me a care-free, wonderful 4 days of rejuvenation. Villas in the community are mostly two story condo units, four to a building, and this treeside second floor unit is perfectly situated with about 8 shared parking spaces. Print your parking pass...

Really enjoyed everything Kiawah had to offer. Great beach, natural beauty, bike trails and water parks. We have a 2 year old daughter and she really loved it. I wish I played golf because the courses seem beautiful too. Easy to get to from Charleston airport also. Can't wait to come back!
