Kiawah Island December 2018
We rented the house for three days/nights in early December 2018. Great house with lot's of first floor space to spread out both inside and outside. Short walk to the beach.

So Close To Beach
Such as easy walk or bike to the beach. House has lots of living space, more than we expected. Great beach rental!

Vacation at Glen Abbey
We have been coming to Kiawah Island for about 30 years. This was our first time using ESPM Vacation Rentals and our first stay at this home. We had a great time! there were numerous firsts for us on this trip...the first time we went to the beach with our grandson. He had a blast with all the open space to move around in this home. We used the enclosed sunroom as his playroom and he knew that's where the fun toys were. This home was very clean, there is a short walk on the path to the beach. Crossing on the bridge over the lagoon always gives you the opportunity for gator watching, and we did see a big one a few times! The house has a very nice, large bonus room on the 3rd floor. Lots of space. Kitchen good size. Another first is this is the only place we have ever stayed (and we've stayed in quiet a few) where we never saw roaches. Sadly that's a common sighting in beach rentals, but not here. Did not see 1! The only negative I have to report on is the faucets in the master bath were a bit complicated to use at first and loose, and the TV's were hard to use. I counted 4-5 remotes for the one TV in the main room. A brief user friendly set of instructions for the TV's (maybe that are laminated and stay in the room where any TV's are) would be helpful.
We appreciate the owners opening their lovely home for rent. We really enjoyed our stay and would gladly stay there again and use this rental agency as well.

Manager Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the home so much! Thank you for all the great feedback, especially on the master bath as it just underwent a renovation this past spring. We did a special sealing process under the house that really cuts down on the roaches and other insects quite a bit, I'm glad its working well. Definitely let us know when you'd like to return, we'd love to have you!

Family Vacation
This was in a great location, near the beach. It had lots of space to spread out in.

Manager Response: Thank you so much for the review, this house is a great spot for families to spread out, its got tons of space. We're so glad you enjoyed it and hope to have you back soon!

Beach family trip in paradise
An island with so many special memories for us as a family! It was such a pleasure to come back. Saw sea turtles under a full moon coming to nest on east beach, osprey in a nest at the preserve, crabbing, bike riding, kayaking at sunset and the beach all day! The house is right on the Allee of Oaks and was all we needed for our group. Perfect.

Great Location for Large Family
This house was a great fit for our large family! With lots of places to eat, many quiet nooks and crannies and plenty of places to sleep, we were very comfortable. We especially enjoyed being able to walk right out of the house and onto the path to the beach - important when you're toting a lot of kids & gear. We had never been to Kiawah and we were blown away with the quaint beauty!

Lagoon Beauty
What a beautiful home! Our first night there, we were greeted by some of Kiawah's wildlife - deer at the end of our tree lined driveway and an alligator who came up out of the lagoon to check out the smells coming from our grill.
The home is perfectly suited for a variety of activities...nice large dining spaces, home entertainment room situated away from sleeping areas to minimize disruption to those early to bed and a beautiful sun room and large outdoor deck for relaxing mornings with a cup of coffee or dinners and evenings post-beach festivities. It was very clean and well maintained. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glassware and a great set of pots, pans and utensils. Also very nice was the large ice machine in the kitchen - this definitely came in helpful to fill coolers and chill beverages for our family.
One of the best parts of this home was the close proximity to the beach. It's just a short walk down the deck stairs to the bike path, and in 5-7 minutes walking, you are at the gorgeous beach to enjoy your time off.
We love Kiawah and this was one of our most memorable and enjoyable rentals.

A wonderful family gathering on Kiawah Island
Our 2 grown children, son-in-law, 2 beautiful grandkids (age 2 and 5 years), my wife and I had 14 wonderful days in May 2017 in 212 Glen Abby. My wife and I previewed this home 6 months earlier and knew it would be perfect for us. The 4 bedrooms, LR, DR, kitchen, sunroom and laundry area are spacious, well situated, and well furnished. Our son had to work half of each day on his computer and the office/study and desk on stair landing were perfect for him. With the young children, we were very careful with the frequent presence of alligators which would climb up the lagoon bank behind the home and rest there. We learned that the Kiawah gators do not fear people as they do in the wild, probably due to Kiawah visitors tossing food to them unfortunately. Beautiful beaches less than 5 min. walk and miles of bike/walking trails were greatly enjoyed daily. With several visits by our clan to Kiawah the past 5 years, this home was the most beautiful and enjoyable of any previous rental home.

Manager Response: Thank you for the helpful review! We look forward to your family's return next year!

Manager Response: So glad you enjoyed your extended stay with us and hope you will consider us for any return visits to Kiawah!

Our Wonderful Experience at 212 Glen Abbey
The house is beautifully done and very comfortable which made our visit more relaxing. There was enough space and rooms for our guys who wanted to watch the All Star Game as well as those who wanted to sit and visit and those who chose a quiet corner to read. We ate in for most breakfasts and lunches and only 2 evening meals. The kitchen was furnished with everything we needed. The ice maker was a great addition as we used a lot of ice! Everything was clean and in excellent repair. The description of the property came close but in reality the property was even better than we had imagined. The walk to the beach was easy and we timed it...exactly 5 minutes. The property manager was friendly and helpful and she sent information promptly. She was always friendly when we had to bother her with some question or another. We felt that we were in good care. We would highly recommend 212 Glen Abbey to our friends. We have been coming to Kiawah Island for 18 years and we come back because we love the island. This is truly the nicest house we have stayed in. We enjoyed a day in Charleston and dinner in town one night. The guys (unfortunately none of us 'girls' golf) went golfing twice. We spent some time every day at the beach. It was great having the family together for a whole week. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Manager Response: Thank you so much for this amazing review! This house truly is a great one for families, the location is great, the view, the many different areas in the home for people to spread out and relax in, I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed it and your time here in the Lowcountry! Please let us know next time you would like to return to Kiawah, we would love to have you!

Beautiful Home close to the beach
My wife and I and our 3 adult kids with there significant others had a great week on Kiawah. This was our 10th visit to the island and this home was by far our favorite. Roomy and close to the beach. The great room above the garage was a plus for evening gatherings.

As always, a great Kiawah experience. Lots of nature this time around---alligators, turtles, crabs, dolphins, deer, racoons, and an eagle! This was our first time at 212 Glen Abbey and I think we may be back---location was great, and the house layout worked well for our families.
