Great family vacation
This was a vacation with my son, daughter in law, their two girls, 4 and 2, my husband and myself. My DIL grew up going to her grandparents home at 114 Bufflehead so she was very familiar with the location. We loved the lagoon views, watching the birds, gators and deer each day. The proximity to the beach was great as well. We enjoyed riding bikes to various marsh lookouts and the girls loved the nature ‘museum’ and the playground at the Ocean Course end of the island.

Great Stay
We really enjoyed the property for our vacation. More spacious than the pics suggested! It is an easy half mile walk to the beach, mostly on a bike path by crossing the main road. Everyone enjoyed watching the wildlife from the deck. There is an area on the side of the house with an outdoor shower to rinse and dry beach gear conveniently.

Wonderful stay
We loved our stay at 8 Bufflehead! The home is comfortable and clean, and a quick bike ride to the beach. The back porch features a pretty view, and our two-year old son enjoyed spotting alligators, birds, and turtles. It was an easy check-in and out process as well.

Wonderful week in Kiawah
Perfect layout for our family. We loved the deck in the morning and evening, and the screened porch in the heat of the day. Very nice vacation home.

Perfect
This house is gorgeous and in excellent shape. The furniture is comfortable and nice. Beds are good. Views on the lagoon with alligators and tropical birds is stupendous. It is a natural paradise, an easy walk to the beach. It's perfect for bike riding on trails, hiking, and kayaking on salt water canals.

Wonderful experience, can’t wait to come back next year!
Such an easy and painless process renting from Pam Harrington! The house was exactly as described, spotless and the amenities were perfect; especially love the back deck overlooking the river. This is our second year here and we can’t wait to come back! Thanks for a great vacation!

Great stay on Kiawah Island!
What a lovely home for our family to "live in" for a week. The home was well kept, clean, and has a beautiful view of a lagoon (with some visiting gators). A five minute bike ride to the beach makes for a good location on the island.

Nice place to stay!
The home was clean and easy to live in and use. It was stocked with adequate dishes and cooking pots/pans/utensils. Convenient location to the beach, bike trails etc.

May 2015 Kiawah trip
Our yearly vacation trip to Kiawah Island. We prefer renting a home. It gives us more room, privacy, ability to cook meals, laundry, etc et is a good value for our dollar. 8 Bufflehead worked out well et fit our needs. So pleased we were able to rent it the additional 4 nights. We would rent it again even with some of the small glitches we encountered in our stay. They were minimal et easily taken care of. Thanks for the great vacation experience on Kiawah 2015.
