This was a great home for our family. We came down to celebrate our son's graduation from the Charleston School of Law. The amenities, especially the pool, were great. The kitchen is well appointed with lots of cooking utensils and dishes, etc. The beds and bedrooms were comfortable. There are a lot of rules on Kiawah so important to be aware of those. For example, no more than four cars in the driveway. This was a bit of a problem for us as we had four cars that travelled to the home and we planned to have our son over for dinner after graduation so that would have been five cars. We just had to go pick him up instead of letting him drive over himself. We brought our own bikes and that was a good thing since there is no parking at the beach access unless you drive about 10 minutes to the public beach at Beachwalker Park. Unfortunately, the lot there fills up quite quickly (by 10 am) so we could not get a spot. We had two infants under 1 year old to they could not walk or bike to the local beach. What we ended up doing was driving to the access closet to the home (boardwalk 38), dropping off our beach gear and the family there, and then drove the car back home and rode a bike to the beach. The bike ride is under a mile and quite easy. If all you had was adults or older kids and were just bringing a beach chair you could easily just walk or ride without having to the drop off. But for us with the little ones, all the baby gear required us to do the drop off. Once on the beach, it was beautiful!
