Highly Recommend This House
We had a wonderful time at this house. We had 2 families stay here with 5 adults and 3 kids. There was plenty of space and seating for all of us for meals. We rented bikes and had them delivered to the house. That was one of our favorite things to do. We loved this house and Kiawah Island and can't wait to come back!

Nice home
Open bright and sunny. Huge bedrooms. Nice open living space. The pool would be great in the summer. The carpet in the kids room needs cleaning or replacement. The home is on a quiet cut de sac street so great for kids riding bikes.

The house was beautiful. The outdoor area and pool were really great. The grill wasn’t working so that was sad. The kitchen was well equipped and clean. The overall vacation was wonderful.

Great vacation. We certainly would rent this property again. We cooked and relaxed and played golf and enjoyed the pool. The property description was very accurate as far as amenities. etc. A five should be given on all questions.

Beautiful Pool
We were very pleased with this property. The pool was much larger than it looked in the picture, which was great for the kids. The house was very kid friendly and had a great layout. I noticed in some of the reviews there were issues with its location, but for us, its location was perfect, as we always drive to the beach anyways.

I would suggest maybe some more thorough written instructions as to how to use some of the items. We had trouble with the air conditioning on the second floor not working properly, we couldn't get the elevator to work, and the porch screens wouldn't go down. And we never seemed to have enough silverware. But, even with that, we loved this property and will try to reserve it again!

Vacation 2018
One of the most enjoyable times we have had on Kiawah. The house was comfortable, the location was perfect and quiet at the end of a cul de sac. The pool was amazing, the view, everything was incredible.

Great house
This house was fabulous. The kitchen and living room were the perfect size for our two families. There was plenty of room and the gathering areas were top notch. I can't say enough about this house.

Great Property on Kiawah
This property was one of the best we have stayed at on Kiawah. It is a well appointed 4 bedroom. All the bedrooms are good sized and can easily sleep 10 comfortably (as long as 3-4 are kids or kids at heart!). The kitchen is killer (good sized island, good appliances, 2 dishwashers, plenty of seating at main table and counter chairs, etc). Great space for entertaining! The Infiniti pool is perfecto! It's a nice size and goes to 6 feet deep. The deck area has fun chairs (regular chaise lounges and 2 double chaise lounges). Great to hang out at!

The property is about a 15 min bike ride from the beach so not a walk. On the downside the master bedroom doesn't work for light sleepers. There is an air conditioning unit outside that kicks on and off and will be very annoying for some.

The VRBO folks (Hillary) were very helpful!

Spring Break Kiawah
We had a wonderful time in this very spacious home. It was very well stocked with dishes, glasses and other kitchen amenities.

Manager Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and found the kitchen well stocked, thank you!

A wonderful stay!
We had the most wonderful stay at snowy egret! We have rented many many homes over the years and this home was by far the most well stocked home we have ever stayed in! We truly felt like we were visiting someones home during our vacation...not staying in a rental home. Everything was thought of and our appreciation goes out to the owners. My children devoured the amazing books that were there. My husband and I had an espresso every morning. The pool warmed up enough to swim in 40 degree weather (which I could not believe). The beds were extremely comfortable and the home itself was very clean. The fireplaces were amazing to have on the cold days. In fact, after staying in this home, I think we would hesitate to stay anywhere the fireplaces didn't work this time of year. We had a small issue with the tv and although it could not be resolved during our stay, the rental agency was very attentive and showed up right away to help. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone! It was a lovely stay and we were sad to leave.

Manager Response: Thank you for the amazing review of our Snowy Egret house! We are so glad you and your family had an enjoyable stay and found the house worked well for your family. I do apologize about the upstairs TV issue, we have the problem resolved now thankfully and we'd love to have you return, please let us know when you'd like to plan your next Kiawah getaway!

Beautiful home
This house was a very clean and beautiful house. It accommodated 4 families well. We enjoyed the pool a lot. Only drawback was that it was not very close to the beach. It was about a 15 minute bike ride.

Manager Response: Thank you for your kind review, I'm so glad you enjoyed the home and it worked well for your group, let us know next time you would like to come to Kiawah, we'd love to have you return!
