At The Beach


What we hear the most from vacationers:

Is how easy it is to rent a vacation home from Kiawahsands. We hear this ALL THE TIME!

We make it simple by following up on the big things:

Like making sure gate passes are waiting for you at the main gate

And the small things:

Like making sure the gas grill has gas!

Kenmare -- Vacationer Reviews:

– The place was wonderful! Thank you for letting us use it.  We’ll look you up if we are ever in SC again.

 -     Another great week!

 -     the beach house at 414 Amaranth is a very nice property.  The convenience of being an easy walking distance to the beach is a strength of this location.  The beach being semi-private for owners/guests is another plus for this rental.  The size of the home and overall open layout make for an enjoyable stay.  An additional point is that it is not a very long drive to Charleston and there are numerous attractions, eating establishments and shopping areas to meet the needs of a variety of interests.  The house is light and natural light comes into every room of the home.  The décor is basic, but fits in with the beach theme for the week.  We have a family of five and the tree bedroom and 2.5 bath layour fit us perfectly.  We enjoyed our stay and had a great vamily vations.  This trip was probably the last time all five of us will travel together, so it was  indeed a special time that created fond memories that we will reflect back on over the years.

 -     Once again, we had a glorious time in Kaiwah.  Thank you so much for working with us to arrange a much needed vacation.  We appreciated it very much.  We’ll e-mail some pictures.  We really appreciated the wagon.

ahead of all the other rentals we've experienced.

The entire family had a great time.  The weather was perfect for us to enjoy the beach, the bike trails, and a boat ride to see the dolphins and pelicans.  Most of us got to the beach to see the sunrise each day.  We really hated to leave after such a great week.
The house was perfect for our needs.  I did let the cleaning ladies know that the temperature controls on the new washing machine may be off.  It seems like the warm was hot with a warm rinse.  Cold seems like warm.
We did restock supplies for the next guest.  
I am retaining your information for a future return trip.  Thank you!  

I am returning your $20.  There are some of each of those items there.  We repurchased some items.  We accidentally broke 2 wine glasses.  We had a great time.  I almost forgot.  One beach chair was badly damaged when we arrived.  We used it once but had to throw it away.

The house was great  --  we had another good vacation.

Our week was wonderful.  Our family has been coming to Kiawah for 10 years and it is a treasured week to spend time with just our children and grandchildren.  The ocean calls our name – we love it!   Please keep us updated on 405 Amaranth for next year!  Thank you!  

Thank you very much for letting us stay in your house on Kiawah Island.  We loved the island, the beach, the nature center and the kids programs.  We very much enjoyed your house.  The layout is beautiful and very convenient.  We especially loved how light came in through the windows.  
The handling of the keys, parking permits and contact was very convenient.  Thank you.  All the best!

--  Sorry it took so long to return the keys - I just found the envelope.  The place was great; we really enjoyed the week & hope to rent there next year.  We have told our friends about the places you tent too.


            We had a glorious time at your home – it is beautiful!  The layout of the home was perfect for my husband and I and both sets of parents for the week.  We had unseasonably warm weather and enjoyed golf and walks on the beach. We would love to come back and stay next year and will have to schedule with you accordingly.

Thank you again for everything.



I'm writing to say that we really enjoyed staying at your place.  All of the members of our group commented that they enjoyed the house and the lagoon view.  The marathon was nearly perfect as well -- 50-60 degree weather and no rain. It was a great experience.



We had a great time and your house was wonderful.  Thank you so much. Being a nurse I am so impressed that you included medical information-great idea.



Just a note to follow up on your request for feedback on how our stay went. We had a really great vacation and your home was an integral part of our experience.  It is lovely and well appointed, with lots of extras that we did not expect but very much appreciated. It was very thoughtful of you to have such conveniences as plastic wrap, dish and laundry detergent and lots of towels available to us, for example. The entire space and flow worked very well for us too. We went biking on the beach every day and the easy access was another asset.

            Thanks for everything!


We had a great time.  The weather was nice – locals probably thought it to be a little chilly but when you’re from Boston, it was tropical to us.  My kids love the house and the area.  They are already talking about coming down next April vacation.  I’ll be in touch.  Thank you.


We had an absolutely wonderful time! the size of your house is perfect for our family. The only problem was I wish we could have stayed 2 weeks! Hopefully we can plan a 2 week stay in the near future. We hope to be able to rent it again next year around the same time. We had no complaints at all. Again - Thank you so much!


We had a *wonderful* vacation on Kiawah.  Your home was as lovely as promised and the perfect spot for our family.  Your kitchen design is great,
and we enjoyed many meals and evenings there.  We were also fortunate enough to have an entire week without clouds and rain!


405 Amaranth  --  Great place!  We enjoyed our stay especially getting to know the alligator.  We liked the ability to grill out.  We liked the access
to the beach too!!
We surely enjoyed 2 glorious weeks in your beautiful home!  We appreciated
how clean and sleek the decor was.  The hardwood floors are so pretty.  Our
in-laws rental [at another property] had a "musty" odor - and yours had none
of that.  There was tons of room which made everyone happy.  Most of all -
the view was breathtaking!  Hopefully we were good stewards of your home.
Thank you for helping create great memories.    -- vacationer from Ohio.
