We had a family wedding in Kiawah and there were 3 families (7 adults, 6 kids) staying in our house. We had the most wonderful relaxing weekend! Everything about the home was perfect for our families. The beds were super comfy, pillows perfect, house was spotless and very well maintained. Outside area was so welcoming and the kids hung out there as much as possible. Perfect location for walking to beach and biking as well.

155 BUFFLEHEAD was the perfect house for our family's birthday beach vacation. Everyone had their own bedroom and bath, the house had every amenity, the pool and spa were enjoyed by all, ages 2 months to 74 years. The house comes with all linens, an equipped kitchen, two laundry rooms, and items to enhance your trip to the beach and your playtime in the pool. The deck area was very relaxing with six chaise longues, the dining table to seat six, and the barbeque grill. The deck and pool did require some sweeping and cleaning up of the tree debris that we were happy to do daily. The inside dining table, the screened porch table and outside dining provided three different places to dine, seating six to eight. We enjoyed the close proximity to the beach, with the path a walkable distance even for our two-year-old. We have been coming to Kiawah Island for more than 25 years, so we enjoy visits to The Sanctuary Hotel, the Ocean Course Clubhouse, Freshfields, Johns Island, and Charleston for dining and shopping. We look forward to returning to this lovely house and highly recommend it for your vacation. The property manager responded quickly to our questions concerning the spa operation.

We had an amazing stay at this beautiful property. The house was very clean, spacious, cozy, beautifully decorated and very well appointed. We did quite a bit of cooking and were very pleased with the fully stocked kitchen. The two sets of washer/dryers were also ideal for our 2 families. The location was perfect for us; we rented bikes and were less than a 5 minute bike ride to the beach. The property manager was extremely easy to work with and very communicative. I highly recommend this property.

We have been visiting Kiawah for over 20 years and this was yet another great experience. Beautiful home with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Proximity to the beach was great. Not a lot of sun in the pool area but after a day on the beach that was welcome.

We are locals in Charleston but were looking for a place to celebrate my mom’s 60th Birthday and thought Kiawah would be the perfect staycation retreat. We couldn’t have picked a better home for our family to gather! The layout of the house was ideal. Everyone had their own space, yet there was plenty of room for everyone to gather for dinner and to play games. The walk to the beach was even shorter than expected. The grandkids had no problems with the walk. The home is beautifully decorated, well stocked and check-in/out was a breeze. The team at Akers Ellis was there to answer any questions that we had. We hope to return to this home again next year!

Home is lovely allowing for plenty of space for our family. The location is perfect--an easy five minute walk to the beach. Unfortunately hurricane Matthew caused a Wednesday evacuation. We would have loved an extra three days but were impressed with the up to date info we were provided regarding the evacuation process.

We had a great family vacation. Age range in our group was 1yr old to 73 yrs old. The location was great. The house is across the street from the short path that leads to the beach. The pool/spa was very nice. Everyone had plenty of space. We had an issue with one of the ovens not working and the pumps on the pool switched off but they both were serviced quickly. I would definitely recommend renting bikes and beach chairs. Thank you for an awesome week! We'll be back!

We had a wonderful family vacation. This home met or exceeded our expectations in just about every way. It was clean and well supplied with just about everything we needed on our vacation. The location is great only a short walk to the beach. The only thing that needs work is the pool and back porch were covered in leaves. The trees really need to be trimmed in order to solve the problem. Otherwise the house is close to perfect!

"We had a wonderful visit to Kiawah Island. We were definitely a “5” – very satisfied with the vacation home. It is a beautiful home with a great layout for our extended family. The beautiful weather all week did not hurt either!

In terms of trip logistics, we loved your app which gave our entire group access to the house pictures and video as well as to facilitate check-in and check out. The system worked great for us.

The only minor issue was that we never could figure out how to lock the front door from the outside. (It was locked when we arrived last Saturday). We did not fear theft or unauthorized entry by anyone, so it wasn’t a big deal to us."

My extended family had a marvelous stay at this property over Christmas 2015. The home was ideally suited for our multi-generational family with a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy. We cooked several family meals there and the kitchen was well equipped. Attention to a few minor issues would make this place "perfect": 1) upgrading the bedding--particularly the pillows and comforters; and 2) better cleaning of the pool and spa to clear the leaves (since the charge is $75/day to heat pool and spa (+$125)--better maintenance cleaning would be appreciated. Working with the Akers-Ellis folks was great--responsive and personal.

We enjoyed our time at the house, despite very inclement weather. Our only criticism would be the pool. It is so heavily shaded there is constantly a large amount of debris in the pool. Some tree trimming might be in order. The house was clean and well equipped, and the location is terrific.

Great vacation experience

Island is beautiful. House is in a great location, very easy walk to the beach. Pictures they have posted of the home are accurate, very nice house and would rent again. The only cons: need new pillows and mattresses are on the hard side. Back deck area could use a refresh and bathroom outside by pool needs to be cleaned or sewer fixed.

The rental home at 155 Bufflehead Drive was perfect.
It was beautiful, spacious and had everything we needed for our group of 8 people. The beach was a short 5 minute walk away and you could even ride your bikes on the beach which was fun!
We enjoyed the Mingo Point Oyster Roast one night, the Freshfields Village area, The Ryder Cup restaurant with a beautiful view of the ocean as well as the yummy BBQ at Ospry Point's Cherrywood BBQ and Ale House. Kiawah is a wonderful place for families with so many activities and something for everyone!
We had a slight problem with one of the bathroom showers while we were there, but reported it and Akers Ellis has someone out to repair it right away.
We would most definitely recommend 155 Bufflehead!

Our rental experience was overwhelmingly positive. The house is very spacious, was in very good condition, was very clean, had lots of nice amenities (pool, hot tub, outdoor grill, ample kitchen supplies, separate ice maker, etc) and was close enough to walk to the beach. A couple of things that could have been better, all fairly minor but still worth nothing: the beds were all very stiff, the pool area did not seem to get a lot of sun and there was a good amount of debris in the pool and pool area every day due to the overhanging trees. All in all, I have high standards with regard to lodging on vacations, and I would stay here again.

We brought the whole family to Kiawah for New Years and needed a larger property to accomodate us all. Akers Ellis had many wonderful choices but one of the agents suggested 155 Bufflehead and so we took the recommendation. From the moment that we walked up to the elegant, spacious residence we knew that it had been the right choice. The house was all aglow with many lights on and music playing and we felt like we were home! The house was immaculate and well appointed. The decor was tasteful but not intimidating. Everyone had their own spaces and we never felt like we were intruding on anyone else's spot! We loved sitting around the family friendly dining room table and had great fun preparing meals in the beautiful kitchen. The hot tub was well used, and when we had some problems getting things going, Akers property managers helped us out immediately. No one wanted to leave and we all agreed that it was the best family vacation ever! Thank you Akers Ellis and Bufflehead.

We had a party of 12. The oldest person was 62 and the youngest 7. The house was amazing!! Anytime we had a problem and called it in, i.e. recycling/trash pickup or internet, someone was there within minutes to take care of the problem. Customer service was A++ from Akers Ellis to Newton Farms grocery. I loved Freshfields! Our teenagers loved the beaches, bikes, and freedom to go. We felt very safe to let them go. The younger children, 12 and 7, loved riding bikes from the beach to the house non-stop. I can't say enough positive things about our vacation here. It was totally worth the 10 hour drive and our house was less expensive than previous rentals in Corolla, NC. We are definitely considering for next year.

Our history at Kiawah is extensive. We were all trying to remember if this was our 18th or 19th year vacationing on the island. As you can imagine, we have had the opportunity to stay at many different places over the years. We began at a very small single level home which was located on Greensward. Over the years as our family expanded and our finances improved we began staying in larger homes located much closer to the beach. My youngest daughter who is recently married was the one responsible for finding 155 Bufflehead for our vacation this year.

Upon arrival, your excellent cleaning staff was just leaving the house. They were very pleasant and professional. When we walked in, we were amazed at the cleanliness and organization that greeted us. The house itself was magnificent and spotless. The amenities were excellent. The kitchen was well organized and appropriately equipped. Most of all everything was very clean and orderly. We loved having the two separate laundry rooms and the refrigerator was top of the line. The layout of this house met the needs of our family and gave us the space for everyone to enjoy different activities while under the same roof. We loved having the swimming pool and hot tub. The outdoor shower was great for rinsing sand off from the beach.

Your company's responsiveness to the minor issues we had during the week was remarkable. Everyone was polite, friendly and very professional. We felt that we had excellent customer service and all of our needs were met.

We are glad that we chose 155 Bufflehead in Kiawah. The house accommodated all 4 families with more than enough room. The realtor met our requests for dish and dish washer detergent and made sure the hot tub and pool were heated. We appreciated their attention. We liked that it was just a short walk to the beach (saw the sun set over the water on New Year's Eve - kind of poetic) We would stay there again and would recommend the Island and this particular house to anyone. We also would rate highly Freshfields with its grocery market.

The description of this BIG, BEAUTIFUL HOME on the website overview is spot on. An elevator makes the transfer of luggage and groceries easy from the ground level. Had a supply of garbage bags, dish detergent, dishwasher detergent, some laundry detergent,
paper towels and toilet paper when we arrived. Huge kitchen with high quality appliances and enough cookware to make meals for our group of 8. Plenty of dishes and glasses for large groups. (Management -check the toaster, it was not working properly during
our stay) Big bathrooms with ample towels/2 large laundry rooms a plus! Our only disappointment was that the queen size beds felt like doubles and the mattresses did not match the quality of the other amenities in this home- they were a bit uncomfortable.
Everything else was great! Truly a short walk to the beach, great pool/spa and deck to enjoy. (some pool toys and beach towels on site) Easy drive to Charleston. Suggestions: Freshfield’s Village for groceries, golfers- the Osprey Point course.

I thought the house was fantastic. The only negative was the TV. There is a nice HD TV in the living room and each bedroom but unfortantely very few channels are available. To have all of those great televisions without being able to get HD channels seemed very cheap compared to the rest of the house.
