back-to-school vacation
The kids are back in school and those lazy days of summer are a distant memory. Do you need another vacation

Come to Kiawah Island for Labor Day weekend! It's still warm and beautiful here. Enjoy one last family vacation before fall season and activities begin.

Plus, since sea turtle nests continue to hatch up and down the beach, you may even by lucky enough to catch a glimpse of baby turtles scurrying to the ocean. What a memorable moment!

Properties are booking quickly for the long holiday weekend. Contact our reservations team or view our website to find your perfect property today.
Get ready to splash, flash, and dash! The annual Kiawah Island Triathlon is on September 18 and features a .7-mile swim, 25.1-mile bike and 6.1-mile run around beautiful Kiawah Island. Thanks to a king tide, one of the highest of the season, predicted on race day, this year's event features a new course.

Rental properties are filling quickly for the weekend, so contact Akers Ellis to secure your property near the race start/finish or along the route. 

As in past years, Akers Ellis has several individuals and relay teams participating in the event, so we'll see you out there!
We are pleased to introduce our newest Kiawah Island vacation rental property! This beautiful 4 bedroom home features a reverse floor plan to maximize the marsh views.

Have you vacationed in Duneside? This featured community is located in Kiawah's West Beach, offers townhouse-style villas ranging from 3 to 5 bedrooms, boasts oceanfront views and beach boardwalk access, has a community pool available during warm weather, and received an exterior renovation in early 2016. If you haven't experienced a vacation at Duneside Villas, you should definitely consider it for your next trip to Kiawah.

Two homes in one! This unique property offers two 3-bedroom units that may be rented separately or together as a large 6 bedroom home, depending on your group size. Situated in the Vanderhorst Plantation, the Ocean Green neighborhood features a seasonal community pool and is a short walk to the beach.
