Wonderful stay in a fully loaded house on Kiawah!
A guest from Potomac, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 This house is a wonderful place to stay on Kiawah Island. It is fully loaded with everything you might need on vacation, especially in the kitchen! The house is organized and so it is so easy to find things and then put them back where they belong so the next guest can find them with ease. My husband especially loved the high end grill. The view of the golf course and little lake were very peaceful from the private pool. We will most definitely stay here again in the future!
Steven D. from Hillsborough, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2016 We enjoyed a wonderful time at 264 Governors Drive with family and friends. The house was clean and neat and the kitchen well stocked. Nice to have a pool to cool off on a hot summer day.
Melissa L. from Concord, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 Our family had a fantastic time on vacation. This home was beautiful and very clean. We had plenty of room. We enjoyed the beach, but also the pool. Thank you!
Greg T. from Rye, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 We have been going to Kiawah for many years and I would say this is one of the best homes we've been at. The pool was great. The home was well equipped from the kitchen to the bedrooms. The weather also cooperated. This home had it all, you couldn't ask for anything else. We had a great time in a great house. Thanks to the Gallo family.
Debra M. from Purcellville, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 From the moment we walked through the front door, I knew we had selected the perfect home for our family vacation. Maribella is beautifully decorated and is completely equipped for anything and everything you could ever need or want while vacationing! We all love to cook and found the kitchen to be one of the favorite features of the home. There were many beautiful serving pieces, dishes, glasses, bar ware! The bedrooms were very comfortable, especially the Master Suite with the amazing shower! The in home sound system was a great feature as well. We found the upstairs media room our favorite spot for evening movie watching. The pool is a nice size and we loved that it felt like an oasis nestled between the pool house, screened porch and master bedroom. The screened porch was a wonderful place for one of our home cooked meals. Even though it was an August night, the fans kept things cool and we sat there for hours enjoying the night sounds and ambiance. Thanks to the owners for meticulously labeling things, the home was completely user friendly. Overall I think this was the nicest beach/resort property we have ever had the pleasure of calling home for a week!
Jennifer M. from Chagrin Falls, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 This house has it all! Plenty of space for adults and kids to spread out. Fully stocked kitchen with everything you need to cook for 20+! They even have an ice maker! The pictures do not do it justice. We cannot wait to come back.
Todd A. from Alpharetta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in June, 2014 Fulfilling and incredible in every way. Location, furnishings, amenities all were outstanding. We loved this home with the pool, BBQ and spaciousness. Everything worked well. We will be back
Kimberly G. from Charlotte, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 We have rented several houses on Kiawah, and this is our favorite. The house has a very comfortable layout and is decorated beautifully. While the description does not include a garage, I assumed one from the picture, and was surprised not to have access to it, but there was plenty of space for all of our cars. The house was generally in excellent repair, though there was one minor repair needed, which the management company fixed quickly with no drama. The check in process was quick and easy. I was very impressed with beach walker. Bottom line, we decided to go ahead and rent it again for next year, and isn't that the best recommendation you can give?
A guest from Avon, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 The house and furnishings are beautiful. Our girls spent many hours in the pool and we enjoyed the screened porch for relaxing and having meals during the day. The "Palmetto bugs" did come out in the evening on the porch and pool area, but we called and believe they came out to spray. We drove to the beach (because the girls had lots of "stuff" they wanted to take) and felt the beach parking area was not the most convenient, and a little dangerous due to no crosswalk and cars coming around a corner. We did enjoy our stay overall. It is clear the owners have done a great deal to make their home comfortable for their guests.
Nancy L. from Shrewsbury, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 Truly,the best ever! Kiawah has been are vacationplace for over 30 years,and MARABELLA is our favorite. 5STARS, This home draws you into a warmth and beauty which you never want to leave.The memories are priceless. thank you so much for opening your Charming hometo us.
Review of 264 Governors Drive / Beachwalker Rentals
Gregory N. from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 We have stayed in this same house 2 years ago and love it. The staff was very accommodating when I asked for a fourth car pass. We cracked glass on the porch table and the staff was very helpful when I reported this. The concierge was very helpful with scheduling a golf tee time.
Susan T. from Champagne, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 The only thing that made us not give a top score were the amount of roaches in the house and pool area. We do understand that it is to be expected in South Carolina, but still was unnerving.
Willbanks Review of 264 Governors Drive, Kiawah IS, SC
Laura W. from Cartersville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 We loved everything about our stay on Kiawah except for the fact that when we arrived on Saturday the garbage container at 264 Governors Drive was full beyond its capacity by about 2 feet and garbage had been there long enough to develop a very foul odor. The garbage was not scheduled to be picked up until the following Tuesday and we had no where to store our bags of trash away from outside critters except inside the house, which was rather unpleasant. Every other aspect of our stay was wonderful.
