The first time I visited the Charleston, South Carolina area I instantly fell in love. From the beautiful city full of southern charm to the gorgeous beaches, it is a place I love to visit! Since moving to North Carolina my family and I have taken two vacations to the area, our first was to Isle of Palms and our last was to Kiawah. Both were absolutely wonderful and we can’t wait to return to again.
After a cold winter I am seriously longing for the sound of the waves, sand between my toes, salty air, bike riding along the beach and searching for seashells. Our Spring break is right around the corner and instead of packing for a beach vacation, we will be staying close to home. Our kids have a few school make up days due to all the snow and ice so the week was cut short and left us with not enough time to getaway. So, this year we will take the opportunity to explore some places in our area and tour a few nearby colleges with our girls.
Since this year I can only dream about the beach, I thought I would share with you the beautiful vacation home we rented last year in Kiawah. From the minute we walked in the door this home felt so cozy and every inch of was beautifully decorated. After viewing the pictures of the property on the rental companies website I just knew we were going to love it, but I have to say it was even prettier in person and far exceeded our expectations. It wasn’t easy, but my family gave me a few minutes to snap some photos before we unloaded the luggage from the car. We were all so anxious to settle in, hop on our bikes and head to the beach and relax for the week and that we definitely did, it was so hard to leave!
Ok I’ll stop talking now and get on with the tour!
So, what did you think? As you can imagine I could not stop admiring all of the details throughout the home the entire week that we were there. The bedding, decor, planked walls, ceilings, furniture, amazing kitchen, I could go on and on, I just loved it all!
Our trip to Kiawah was by far one of our favorite family vacations to date and until we can return, I’ll just have to continue to dream of this…..
If you are a planning a Kiawah vacation here is the rental company that we used, Kiawah Island Getaways, they were really great to work with. It is a family run business and they personally renovate each of the properties. On their website you will find all of the accommodations they offer along with photos and detailed information about each. Their website also has lots of great information about the island.
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
