Went to Kiawah for the first time for a long week on vacation during quarantine. The plan was to work from "home" and enjoy the beach in the afternoon/evenings. Kiawah itself was amazing, and the beach was fantastic.
The apartment itself was ok. Kitchen was good. Furniture was pretty outdated and carpet in second bedroom had a ton of stains. Bathrooms were ok.
The two big issues we had were roaches (palmetto bugs) and the wifi. Throughout the week, we killed about 8-10 fairly large "palmetto bugs" aka roaches. I get that they are native to the area and only natural pest repellent is used, but there were still a lot in the unit. COVID also prevented pest control for coming during our actual stay, which is understandable. We kept all doors and windows closed yet seemed to find at least one or two every day (or middle of the night!) that were fairly large in size.
Additionally the wifi didn't work. There was a router to "connect" to, but there was no connection from the router to the internet, so therefore would never work. Hopefully this can be sorted in the future. Fortunately, since we needed it for work, we were able to pay for and connect to an xfinity wifi hotspot. Vacasa did eventually reimburse us after our stay.
Probably the most disappointing part was the service from Vacasa at the beginning. I initially reached out to them upon arrival about the wifi. The said the property manager would be following up (this was on Sunday). I never heard back and followed up multiple times. They kept saying they did not see a ticket for the issue, or to try "turning the router on and off". I didnt get a call from the property manager until Friday, five days after check in and a day and a half before our departure. He said he would look at the wifi issue. I later had to call him back to follow up and he said the wifi was working fine. The only issue was, he was at the location of the second half of our stay (we booked a differently location), not the place we were currently in. He then said he would reimburse us, and then some, for the wifi, which was nice. But overall, response time and general service from Vacasa left a lot to be desired. We still enjoyed the first part of our stay, but felt future guests would want to be aware of these things.
Manager response:
Tommy, thank you for your review. We apologize for the issues you experienced regarding the palmetto bugs and the internet. The internet issue has been addressed by our local manager. Thank you for being accommodating and understanding. As for the palmetto bugs, these are native to the area and are especially prominent during this time of the year. We have informed the local manager about your concerns so they can set up further pest control. We sincerely apologize for your disappointment with our services. We strive to provide our guests with efficient resolutions and friendly service. Currently, our field staff is limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, thus leading to delays in response time. We sincerely apologize and hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!

Loved the location of this house! The closeness to the park/disc golf and ease of access to the beach was great. The layout of the house was awesome too with the open plan kitchen and living room. We would have loved to have spent more time on the porch and deck but they weren’t cleaned or taken care of (dog hair on furniture, leaves/pollen/dirt covering every surface).
We had a few other noteworthy issues too. The WiFi, while not password protected, doesn’t access the internet so you can connect but can’t access anything. The beds are both full beds which should be included in the description. They are also in desperate need of an upgrade. If you have a bad back that requires good support, choose another place. The beds are extremely soft and squeak any time you move.
Overall, the house was mostly clean but there was black and gray dog hair everywhere especially the couch and sheets. We understand it is a pet friendly place but I assumed the additional pet fee is because it takes more time to clean it. It’s apparent that some areas of the home hadn’t been cleaned in a while. The vacuum works great so we vacuumed the couch and the dryer which was full of pet hair so we could rewash our sheets. Once we got the place clean, we really enjoyed our stay.
Manager response:
Thanks for your review, Tommy! The internet issue has been addressed by our local manager, and we would have been happy to assist you with this during your stay had we been notified. We have advised the owner of your concerns regarding the beds and will address the cleaning issues with housekeeping. We hope to see you again!

Kiawah island is not only for golfers. This villa is private and only an easy 4 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute drive to the Salty dog now on Seabrook. Comfortable and clean and vacasa is the best management team in my opinion.

The unit was very nicely appointed and supplied with starter basics in kitchen and bathrooms. The deck was great. Although no beach view, we could see a lake and lobely woods and field. Only a 5 min walk to the beach through a quiet complex and across a bridge over a lovely pond.

This unit was just a 5 minute walk to the beach and less than a 5 minute walk to Night Heron Park. It was very clean.

This rental unit is very close to the Heron Park, and actually looks over the park from the deck and the inside of the unit. This unit was more spacious than others that we have stayed in due to the floor plan. It also had a back deck overlooking the park and a screened in porch with a small couch and chairs. Both bedrooms are basically the same size as are the bathrooms. The unit is very close to the entrance, which is a good thing travel wise, and is only 5-7 minutes from the beach.

We stayed at Parkside Villa during a warm spell in November, which also saw some rain and smoke from the Smoky Mountain fires. The stay was fantastic - the villa is small, but the high ceilings make it feel spacious, and the beach was an easy walk. Beachwalker Rentals were fantastic - this was an easy turn-key experience. Would definitely stay here again.

Had a wonderful stay! Loved the gorgeous decor, layout, vaulted ceiling and nice kitchen and baths. The unit had a very private feeling location with a pretty view of a Lagoon on one side and a open park area on the other. It was super clean and Beachwalker was great! I would definitely recommend this property

Overall a great time. Both beds are very stiff. Beachwalker Rentals was very responsive to an issue we had on arrival. Great location!
