We have a variety of CD's, DVD's, books, games and puzzles to enjoy as well.

A tropical palm lined paved path invites you for a 5 minute walk to your beach chair and umbrella on the 15 mile long beach. Umbrellas and chairs can be rented at the bottom of beach access 18, our beach access, also called Night Heron park beach access.

A festive cocktail, burger or caesar salad with fried oysters or kids activities and games call you from the beach or cottage to Night Heron pool, another short 5 minute walk. See the animals at the nature center, play some basketball or soccer in the park. Enjoy the seasonal festivals in the park with live music and games. Enroll the kids in Kamp Kiawah and enjoy some mom and dad time alone!

A stroll or bike ride on the wide flat beach for ½ mile leads to the 5 star Sanctuary Hotel and Spa. Shop for that special gift, enjoy Sunday brunch at Jasmine Porch or have a glass of champagne by the fire in the piano bar. What about a massage or facial at the luxury spa?

Five golf courses meandering through the low country foliage and following the beach await your round. Golf clinics for adults and kids are offered and family golf on Turtle Point Golf Course is a pleasure for all! The Ocean Course has hosted many PGA events and is hosted the 2012 PGA championship. You have to see the newly renovated clubhouse and have a beer or tea at the Ryder Cup bar!

Kiawah was also sited as the top tennis resort. Two state of the art tennis areas await your serve. There are also tennis clinics offered for adults and children year round.

Many on island dining options abound. Have a casual soup and sandwich or order pizza to go at the East beach market, fabulous italian in a clubhouse setting at Tomassos in Turtle Point, or fine dining at the Atlantic Room or Ocean Room. There is also Jasmine Porch, Loggerhead Grill, Shrimpers, and Night Heron grill.

If Kiawah Island is not enough, how about a shopping spree at Freshfields Village? Complete with many restaurants including Heges(wonderful french dining), GDC home, The Resort Shop, Pink Boulevard(Lilly Pulitzer), Harris Teeter grocery and much more. By car it's only 7 minutes away from home or you can take a leisurely bike ride there.

Go a little further and visit Bohicket Marina and charter your boat or take in some raw bar fare and a beer at Red's.

Charleston is only 30 minutes away! Carriage ride, ghost tour or historic home or garden walk anyone? Museums, aquarium, dining and shopping? The cobblestone streets whisper sweet southern 'nothins' in your ear.

All in all you can't beat Sunshine Daydream and Kiawah! We have only touched on a few highlights. You will be hooked as soon as you drive in the gate!

Wonderful Weekend in Kiawah!

  • 5 of 5

"Sunshine Daydream" was a lovely home for our girls getaway weekend! It is cheerful, comfortable, clean, and convenient to activities on Kiawah. We walked on the beach, rode bikes all around, and signed up for a kayak tour with a naturalist. The kitchen is well-stocked and open to the living area. We enjoyed cooking dinner and eating on the screen porch. The owner is delightful and responsive and made us feel welcome.

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Sunshine Daydream. For us, it is the perfect place to spend our family vacation. The cottage is exceptionally clean and comfortable. It is incredibly convenient to both the Night Heron pool and the beach. My 4-year old also really enjoyed the selection of children's books. We brought our bikes with us and enjoyed many of the paved trails Kiawah has to offer. The lovely screened in porch is the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature (we saw 2 deer passing through the backyard on several occasions). I only wished we could've stayed longer. Highly recommend! Looking forward to visiting again next year.

The Best of All Possible Worlds

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cottage for a week in mid August 2016. We have stayed in Kiawah many times, and this is our favorite neighborhood. Everything is nearby (beach access, bike paths, Night Heron Park and Pool). The cottage itself is darling. It's quite clean and the kitchen is well stocked. The refrigerator has a filter - so no need to buy and haul water in. The best part about this property is that you have resort privileges - which means access to the lovely Night Heron pool, and some other perks. I couldn't have asked for anything more - it was a perfect spot for my husband and I and 4 teenagers to spend a perfect week. The owners were delightful to work with, though we had no issues to resolve with the cottage during our stay. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Kiawah.
