This is our third time staying at 5556 and we can't wait to go back! We have loved it every time! It is a short and pleasant walk to the beach and a close drive to all the plantations. It is so quiet and peaceful as well. We love it!!!

Great Condo! Enjoyed the close proximity to the beach and the comfy beachy decor in the condo. The condo location was really quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed seeing the deer around the condo in the evenings as well.

This renovated top floor condominium had a grey and white palette. Very beachy. The location was perfect, nestled in the trees and with a small lake view. The .4 walk 5o the beach was fine as there is no parking allowed at the boardwalk. The kitchen was not as well stocked as most we have experienced. The addition of a broiler pan, a lasagna pan and kitchen scissors would be nice. The stove is located in a dark corner and since the utility light was burned out, cooking after dark was a challenge. My husband and I had to share a wash cloth and face towel because only one of each had been supplied. Once I called, housekeeping delivered more bath linens by the end of the day. Renting through Vacasa is the only way to rent!

This property was just what we needed to escape a crazy year. It was so clean, cute decor, great back porch overlooking the lake, comfy bed, cable/DVD, great place to store bikes, so close to everything but kind of quiet and tucked away. Highly recommend and we would rent again
Rachel & Brent B. Nov 2020
We visited over the summer and decided we had to come back!! This villa has everything we needed and was just the most perfect spot. We will be back soon!! Thanks for sharing your space with us!
Patsy B. Oct 2020
Luv, luv, luv the updated renovations and look. I was just about to give up on Kiawah because some accommodations were truly stuck in the 70’s. But EVERYTHING was thoughtful, stylish and on point.
Rory F. Oct 2020
The communication from the company was excellent. The checkin was very easy. The condo was in great condition and comfortable. We enjoyed our quiet getaway very much
Elizabeth K. Sep 2020
Enjoyable few days away in Kiawah Island. Of course, the weather was beautiful, so that really helped.

Nice house in good location, and not far from the beach. Clearly...the area is a golfer's paradise, although the courses are rather pricy! Lots of wildlife, and the walking trails were plentiful.
Linda K. Aug 2020
Great place to stay! The place was very clean and quiet neighborhood! The back screened in porch was our favorite! Would definitely stay there again!
Cristina B. Aug 2020
I loved the privacy of this place and it was very quiet. Cons, apartment was not very clean there were bugs in the corners, toilet was dirty and the bed was sandy(sheets) definitely made me extra nervous with Covid 19 I spent about my first hour and a half wiping down surfaces

Rachel & Brent B. Aug 2020
What is not to love?? This beautiful villa was immaculate. It had everything we needed for a birthday get away weekend. We used the washer and dryer and were so happy to have that in the villa. We ordered bikes before we came so we had no issues there either. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay at your wonderful place! We love it and will be back.
Jennifer M. Jul 2020
We were very pleased with this villa. It has everything you’ll need in the kitchen, and everything worked well. Great cable tv with Roku, and shower was nice. Bed was pretty comfortable but bring your own pillows if you don’t like thick pillows. Washer/dryer worked great. Good location on East Beach, close to Vanderhorst gate and close to Sanctuary. Easy and quick bike ride to beach at 27/28 entry points. Very clean, no issues. Don’t rent bikes from Kiawah Resort...choose another vendor that cares about delivery of your bikes.
Shelley B. Jul 2020
Good location and nice updated condo
Chris L. Jul 2020
It was a very nice and clean condo, however there was a bit of mold in the washer. There was also only 1 key in the lock box which was a minor inconvenience for my wife and I. The Keurig with complimentary K cups was a nice touch.
Anita B. Jun 2020
We loved staying at 5556 Turtle Cove! We especially loved and appreciated the quiet and tranquil location. It was so relaxing! The screened in deck overlooks a peaceful lagoon and is a perfect place to enjoy a meal. The modern condo was super clean and had beautiful furnishings. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach, because the views were so great. We also loved seeing the wildlife as we walked. Another thing we appreciated was that it was so close to the shops and restaurants at Freshfields Village. Oh, I can't forget to mention the awesome beach!!! It was a wonderful place and a spectacular vacation!
Denise F. Jun 2020
Comfortable. Updated. Beautiful. Loved the screened porch!
Lindsey P. May 2020
The condo was peaceful and we saw an alligator both mornings in the pond. There are biking trails and it’s a short bike ride or walk to the beach
Ben and S. Mar 2020
Great to be able to bike on the paths each morning and walk to the beach in the afternoon and end with nine holes of golf!
SUSAN M. Mar 2020
The condo was spacious, tastefully decorated and immaculate.
Brent B. Jan 2020
Loved the villa! Very nicely decorated, enjoyed the porch with the water view. Can't wait to return!
Linda M. Dec 2019
What a comfortable beautifully decorated home! It was perfect with everything we needed and more. Fantastic view of the pond from the screen porch. Great bed and comfortable furniture. Weather perfect. We played hard every day. Already thinking about our next trip!
Todd E. Nov 2019
The condo was clean and is a great location to walk to the beach. We had everything we needed. It was clean and they provided lots of towels. The only thing I would suggest it to replace the couch. The main couch facing the TV is broken. When you sit down you sink forward which was uncomfortable. It was just my husband and I so we sat on the other couch. However, had we wanted to watch TV it would have been an awkward sitting arrangement seeing as we would have had to crank our neck to the side to watch the TV. Good for two people. more than that and this place would be tight.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! Maintenance found the sofa bed has not been put back properly which is most likely the discomfort you were experiencing while using the couch. Everything has been realigned properly. We hope to see you again!
Roy K. Nov 2019
Lovely condo overlooking the lagoon in a quiet location.
Clean, spacious and well equipped. Would definitely return
Stephanie V. Nov 2019

Great place. Loved our stay and will be back!
Kathleen W. Sep 2019
We had a great stay! The condo was nice and clean. Really enjoyed the screened in porch! Better directions to beach access would be the only improvement I would suggest.
Christopher M. Sep 2019
Having Beachwacket manage our unit for 16 years proves a job well done. Thanks for bring the Kiawah State Of Mind back to us. Loved every second.
James B. Jul 2019
I have a conference every year there-It is a great walk to Turtle Point Golf center and the porch is wonderful overlooking the lagoon-The Condo is perfect-Great appointments for a relaxing time-Not so perfect that you are scared to enjoy -Everything is beach friendly but beautifully done
Karen R. Jul 2019
Perfect remodeled one bedroom with water view. Close to the Sanctuary and accessible to walking and biking trails. 10 minute walk to beach access.
Lizzie G. Jul 2019
The condo was very cleaned and we loved the beach style decor. The covered balcony was lovely for sitting out on at night. The condo was just the right size for the two of us and offered all the comforts we needed to feel at home. The beach was less than a 5 minute bike ride from us and made coming back and forth very easy. We would highly suggest this condo to any couples looking for a relaxing comfortable stay in Kiawah!
Emmala J. Jul 2019
Very clean, well stocked and great location. An easy walk to the beach and a great view of the lagoon where we spotted an alligator almost daily. Very comfortable. Would stay here again.
MARLON B. Jun 2019
Villa was well furnished with a screened in terrace overlooking a pond. Lots of wildlife ( turtles, birds, deer & gators). The unit was a 5 minute walk to the beach. The property had beach chairs. There is free shuttle service. It was an excellent and relaxing vacation!!
Manager response:
We are glad you had a great stay, Marlon. This villa does not include a free shuttle service but its amazing location allows for easy access to the beach, town and many activities! We hope to host you again soon.
Mary Beth L. May 2019
This Kiawah villa was the perfect spot for a week long getaway. It was charming and well appointed with all that was needed for our stay. We loved drinking our coffee each morning on the screened in porch overlooking the lagoon, and the beautiful walk to the beach later each day. We hope to return to Kiawah soon and would love to stay in this villa again!
Stephen L. Apr 2019
This condo is superb; very tastefully furnished and decorated with a very nice view out over a small lagoon. Very well-equipped with kitchen ware and cable tv, including many prime channels.
Basically we made exactly the right choice, and spent five marvellous days there.
Brian F. Apr 2019
The property was clean, with great amenities and perfectly located for access to town, the beach and anything else you wanted to do at Kiawah.

5556 Turtle cove was fantastic. Updated, clean, everything needed was there. The grounds and complex was well cared for. Jillian at Beachwalker was very helpful and professional.
Rinda B. Nov 2018
This condo is cozy and nicely updated.
Linda W. Nov 2018
Difficult check in and no essential bathroom supplies. Called management but never delivered. Luckily there is a grocery store nearby that sells toilet paper.

Condo was clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable.
Emma W. Sep 2018
This apartment was perfect for our stay! It is in a great location and having a deck to enjoy leisurely mornings was great. The washer/dryer was also a huge plus! Can't wait to get back to Kiawah.

I really loved the upgraded tile floors throughout and the bathroom updates. The view off the screened in balcony was great for morning coffee.
Lee and Donna W. Nov 2017
Pleased with overall experience. Condo was comfortable and well equipped. Location on lagoon enhanced stay and screened in porch provided constant wildlife entertainment. Porch also allowed us to have meals with a view.
Mike G. Aug 2017
Wow! What a wonderful place to stay! The accommodations were perfect, it's like a home away from home! Scenic views with a screened in balcony overlooking a lagoon, and only a short walk to the beach. I would highly recommend it...I will definitely visit again!
