We were extremely pleased with our vacation experience on Kiawah Island. Akers Ellis really made booking our rental property seamless and the Hospitality app walked us through our check in, chair and bike rental and check out. We would highly recommend AE to anyone seeking a stress free vacation experience.p

This is our 4th Kiawah vacation but first condo rental. Beautiful views, well decorated condo just steps from the beach. Only minor issues but none earth shattering: no wine opener, bedroom balcony door would not open. Surprisingly quiet except for one night when the kids staying above us decided to stomp and run around their condo.
Manager response on 2018-06-25 - Response from AKERS ELLIS RENTALS, LLC
Hi Beverly, Thank you for your feedback! We did recently purchase a wine opener for this property. I will follow up with the property manager as to why it did not make it to the property during the turn over. Those check-in days can be a bit overwhelming, as you can imagine! We are hoping it did not cause too much inconvenience for you. We will also take a look at that cranky balcony door and get it fixed. Thanks for letting us know. We apologize that you experienced unwanted noise the one night. We are thrilled you loved the villa and had a great stay on Kiawah!

Enjoyed our Shipwatch stay, great beach access!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much. It was just as advertised. A bit smaller than the previous places we’ve rented on Kiawah which were further in on the island, but the beach access made up for it. Elevator is short walk out the door and then straight ahead to the beach boardwalk. It is very adequate for a couple. Easy access to bike trails. We ate in a couple nights and visited the golf resort restaurants the other nights which were all very good. The kitchen had most everything we needed, except a wine opener! We left our 2 beach chairs that we purchased, for the next renters to enjoy. There were ample towels provided. The outdoor chairs could use a good scrubbing, but were ok. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely return.
Manager response on 2018-06-18 - Response from AKERS ELLIS RENTALS, LLC
Hi Margaret, There should definitely be a wine opener in the unit, so we will add that ASAP. Also, we will be sure to clean the outdoor chairs. Thank you for your feedback. We are thrilled you enjoyed the villa!

What a great trip to Kiawah! The Shipwatch rental was all we had hoped for and more. Quiet, clean, and a very short walk to the beach. If you are looking to relax and enjoy Kiawah this place was wonderful for me and my wife who are recent "empty nesters". I would highly recommend!

Our visit began with a little le confusion about door entry code, but property management was responsive with timely help. The villa was clean except for bathroom rug, but overall acceptable condition. Management provided a clean rug, additional bathroom supplies, and complimentary coffee. Location of villa was convenient, close to elevator, and easy access to beach. Short walk to beach. Nice water view. Quiet. Peaceful. Enjoyed using Wi Fi and watching Hallmark movies. Loved riding bikes on beach. Will visit again! Kiawah is a special place.

We are never disappointed with Kiawah! Coffee on the balcony while watching deer emerge from the thicket on the dunes, dolphins playing in the waves is unbeatable! We slept well on a very comfy bed. Though the sofa was somewhat uncomfortable, everything else exceeded expectations. The villa is pristine and lovely, the views are spectacular and the mirrored wall in the main living area is brilliant, giving us an even broader view of the Atlantic. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great condo and location. Have stayed 5-6 times in 2269. Condo clean and comfortable. Shipwatch has always been quiet and relaxing. Love easy access to beach. If there is a downside it is lack of a pool for the complex. We use to enjoy walking next door to the hotel and the pools with great lunches, refreshments etc. times have changed.

My husband and I have made a yearly trip to Kiaweh this time of year for about four years. This unit was one of our favorite - very well appointed and right on the beach. In addition, I cannot say enough about how the company handled the upcoming hurricane. We were asked to evacuate early and they have also offered to pay for any unused nights. It looks like the brunt of the hurricane will not be there thankfully, but I really appreciate that they put their guests safety first.

A very pleasurable trip except for the rain we had and we took that opportunity to visit Charleston so nothing lost. Loved the local deer population, that was a treat, and the beach there is phenomenal, not to mention the bike paths, and of course the Village, which was new to us. Thanks so much!

Would give it a 6!

Your team did a great job with pre-arrival information, selected a great villa for us with ocean view, and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay in Kiawah. We really enjoyed playing golf at the Ocean Course.

We would rate our overall satisfaction a 5 -- great beach, golf, restaurants, views from our villa, and privacy of the island. We will certainly make a return trip to Kiawah.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The unit has a great view. I would rate it a 4 only because I feel it needs a little work. For a beachfront unit, a more cheerful, light color scheme for the furniture and curtains would help. The mirror wall makes the room seem much larger and projects a panoramic view of the ocean.

We were very satisfied and happy with everything except for a couple things that nothing to do with the wonderful service that was provided. The sleeper sofa was a bit uncomfortable and the heater was a little noisy. We enjoyed the beach and the ocean views from the great panorama that we had by sitting in the living room. Overall we liked that place so much because of the views and the way it is set up and it is just perfect for our smaller family now. We would like to come back many more times and make it our new vacation condo at the beach. Overall it is a very lovely place.

Pictures do not do justice. Unit was clean with great ocean views and short walk to beach. Loved watching the dolphins swim offshore and shrimp trawlers every morning from the balcony. Very private location and was really quiet. King bed was spacious and very comfortable. Kitchen well stocked and enjoyed cooking fresh shrimp we bought from Cherry Point Seafood Co. Spent a day in Charleston and drove to Edisto Beach for a day trip shelling. Riding our rented bikes on beach to the point where we saw dolphin stran feeding was fabulous. Highly recommend condo for both location and ease of renting transaction. Can't wait to come back to Kiawah and will definitely stay here again.
