Villas come in three categories, standard, deluxe and premier and there are scenic view, partial ocean view and ocean view options so rates vary a lot depending on your needs. Given the exclusive nature of the resort we think the villa rates are very reasonable so a golf break at Kiawah does not have to break the bank!

All the villas are privately owned so equipment and furnishing varies but the owner has to maintain them to a good standard otherwise the Resort will remove them from the rental program. In our opinion even the standard units are very nice. As you would expect all villas are fully equipped and will have everything you need for a comfortable self catering holiday.

We can request specific units but cannot always guarantee this as units may be removed from the program temporarily if the owner wishes to use it. For groups needing more than one unit we usually recommend the deluxe villas as it is not always easy to get standard villas close together.

Daily housekeeping is not included but can be added on request.

Private Homes

We have access to a range of four bedroom private homes situated throughout Kiawah Island. equipment and furnishing varies as you would expect for private homes but the quality is generally of a very high standard.

Views vary but include golf course, lagoon, marsh and wooded views. We do not have any ocean view homes available.
