Review for 195 Governors Drive on Kiawah Island
We would our overall experience with this rental house a 4. The pool was a tremendous hit for everyone of all ages. The kitchen was large and well supplied for cooking. Each couple took a night to cook, so we used all of the different cooking equipment, as well as the grill several times. The location to the boardwalk we used for the beach was a nice distance for a bike ride; plenty of parking spaces as well for anyone wanting to drive their car to the beach. The house was very clean when we arrived. The amount of seating areas for eating and watching TV for 13 people was great. The 2 main improvements I would suggest: add curtains to all of the bedroom windows and oil all of the doors. They were extremely squeaky which made trying to stay quiet in the mornings impossible. With no curtains in most of the bedrooms, it allowed the sun in for those trying to sleep past 7:00 and you could see in the twin bed bedroom from the pool area. The description of the house on the website was extremely accurate. We ate twice at the Player's Pub for dinner. We all enjoyed each meal that we ordered. We also ordered beach chairs and umbrellas from their website and that was a huge luxury to not to have to carry chairs to the beach each day. Overall, I would highly recommend renting this house to a family member or a friend. Our group was discussing renting this house again for next summer.

April Break
We had a wonderful stay at 195 Governor’s Drive. Beautiful, clean, and spacious home with gorgeous pool and outdoor area. This was our first vacation in over a year and ESPM did a wonderful job making sure our stay was perfect. We will definitely be returning and will only rent through ESPM.

Such a great trip with many wonderful memories made at 195 Governor Dr. The house was set up exactly what we needed for our own private space. The land around the house was beautiful. The bikes the pool, shopping and the food on the island did not disappoint. Already planning to come back!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.♥️
