Beautiful Home, Great Views and Location
We have stayed at 5 Avocet for our family vacation for nearly the past 10 years. We continue to come back because of the continuous improvements by the owner, thoughtful amenities (the pool is our favorite), great view and location near the beach. The house is well designed with large gathering spaces for families, and yet enough space for those seeking more privacy. This home is sure to please most families.

Family Fun in Paradise
Kiawah is an absolutely beautiful place. We had a wonderful time with our family. Was fun and convenient being able to have everyone together in one place. Enjoyed golf, biking, swimming, shopping and just hanging out together. Could use a new outdoor grill and some attention to detail with cleaning the washer - lots of dried up soap in the top of drum. Housing staff checked in with us making sure all was going well, wonderful time and would do it again.

Perfect for our families
Our two families vacation every year on Kiawah with 10 adults. We have high expectations for the rental properties we reserve and 5 Avocet delivered. Great location, clean, and well appointed.
May 2021
Excellent Service As Always
We have been renting with Pam Harrington Exclusives for decades and have never been disappointed. They pay attention to every detail and are very responsive. Top notch and would highly recommend renting from them.
Apr 2021
Another good Kiawah stay.
The house was as described, and very spacious. Having stayed here before we knew what to expect. I could be wrong, but I believe that all the bedrooms now have their own private bath, so it would properly described as a 5 bedroom/5.5 bath house. The ceiling in the living room (a two story living room by the way) showed some signs of wear, but otherwise the house was in great condition. We would stay here again.

Great home! Lovely spot!
Our extended family of 7 adults and 6 children loved this home. Our grandchildren can all bike now and the ride to the beach was so much fun for them. This home is very well supplied and cared for. There was ample dining space between the dining area and counter stools. Beds were comfy, linens and towels were great, bathrooms spacious.
The pool was perfect for everyone and the view from the pool even better. As always Pam Harrington is wonderful to work with. We couldn’t have been happier with this rental!

Manager Response: Thank you for your kind words. We are so happy you had a wonderful stay and experience. We look forward to seeing you next year.

Four Generations on Kiawah
W have vacationed on Kiawah for 25 years, and have spent the last 7 years at 5 Avocet. The home is very spacious and exceptionally well equipped on a quiet cul de sac minutes from the beach. And the pool is a great refresher after spending time on the beach.

Our favorite place on Kiawah
A great property! Spacious, well furnished, beautiful views. A few minor maintenance issues when we first arrived but they were quickly addressed. Only negative was we weren't told ahead of time when repair staff were coming. Otherwise, Pam Harrington's team was friendly and helpful (as usual).

Manager Response: Thank you for reviewing your stay at 5 Avocet. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the home and the great views! We hope that we can provide friendly and helpful service for you on your next visit to Kiawah.

Another great week in Kiawah
We have used Pam Harrington Exclusives for many years and they did not disappoint this year. Our location, 5 Avocet Lane was a great location, just a 5 min bike ride to beach. The layout was awesome. A huge master suite on 1st floor and 4 BR on second floor. Each with its own BR. The kitchen was stocked with everything you can possibly need. The pool wasn't huge but big enough for the kids to enjoy. Would definitely stay here again
The house was also very clean.

Manager Response: Hi Diane, thank you for reviewing your stay. We love hearing the home had everything you needed and was a great fit for your family. Give us a call when you're ready for your next stay at 5 Avocet!

A good family house
This is a good sized house and perfect for a family. it is located directly on one of Kiawah's golf courses, and is a short bike ride to the beach. A good place to rest, relax, and recharge.
May 2019

Manager Response: Hi Charles, thank you for reviewing your stay at 5 Avocet. So happy that you were able to enjoy the close proximity to the beach and have some time to recharge. We hope you'll be visiting us on Kiawah again soon!

2019 Family Vacation
Considering there were 10 of us the house was perfect! The kitchen was well equipped. The appliances were a little outdated but were in perfect working condition. The master baths jacuzzi had not been used in a long time so when we turned it on for the children to soak in the jets all these black things came out of the filter. I would suggest running it from time to time. We were lucky to be there just before Easter to join in on the Kiawah BBQ, dance and children’s activity. We also went to the Cherrywood BBQ restaurant. Great beds but lumpy pillows. Wonderful time riding bikes on the beach and around the area which is beautiful. Only got into trouble once when we walked on the golf course trail. I guess that is a no no which we didn’t know since none of us golf!! I would highly recommend this awesome house.

Manager Response: Hi Linda, thank you for taking the time to review your stay. Sorry to hear about the jetted tub, we will definitely take care of that. So glad you were able to enjoy some of the great community events on Kiawah! We look forward to having you back soon!

Beautiful like a real Avocet
Beautiful home, clean, comfortable. Enjoyed the pool. Pretty much everything was perfect.
Small technical problem: could never get the TV in the big living room turned on. The family room TV worked fine.
Oct 2018
A retirement celebration for my wife,5 children/mates and 5 grand children by the ocean required a grand home to accommodate all. The five bedrooms were large and comfortable. Everything you could need as if you were home is provided. The required on site pool was perfect for the small children and nearby proximity to the beach provided a great daily change of scenery. (Plan to rent a golf cart for a fun 10-12 minute ride to the beach with the children and all the "stuff" needed.) Grocery shopping and more is conveniently nearby by car. We did experience an unfortunate A/C problem but the staff at Pam Harrington did respond ASAP to get the matter addressed and helped with a temporary solution.
Jul 2018
(Another) great week in Kiawah
This was our sixth year of renting 5 Avocet for our annual family vacation. We remain highly satisfied with the condition of the property and the comfort it provides for our growing family of adult children and grandchildren. We will be returing again next year!

5 Avocet Review ....July 4th week
It was an overall good experience. The house was very nice and Pam Harrington's staff was very accommodating when there was an issue with the A/C. HOWEVER, when we tried to rent the same house the following year for the same week, we learned that it has already been rented. We have been coming to Kiawah for 20 years and that was a first. We are attempting to find a different house for next year and Pam Harrington's staff has NOT particularly helpful.

Great two weeks at Avocet!
Lovely home with beautiful decor and views. Have already booked a return for next year.

tremendous house for family and grandkids
It was perfect, would like to state that on the roadside of the property we did see two small rats living in the bushes, we also saw a copper head snake on the golf course side and the lawn/tree folks also saw the snake and rats. I do realize snakes are certainly around the island, really thought they would get the rats though.

Great vacation house!
This house was great for a family reunion! It was close to the beach (quick bike ride) and the pool was nice to cool down in the afternoon. The house itself was spacious and well decorated. Having an ensuite bathroom with each bedroom was a plus! The kitchen was extremely well-stocked to cook meals. Pam Harrington even supplied some eclipse glasses since we were there during the eclipse! The only things to improve would be to have beach towels available (I flew in from the West Coast so packing towels would have been a pain; luckily my sister's family lives within 4 hours and packed them for us). Also, even though the house was very clean, there was a good amount of dog hair throughout the house (I don't recall the house being listed as pet-friendly and think the house owners and their dogs were there just before we arrived). These two issues aren't deal-breakers, but just small issues to point out. Overall, we had a great stay and would rent the same house again!

Return visit to 5 Avocet
We have vacationed on Kiawah for nearly 20 years now, and have stayed at 5 Avocet for the last 6 years. The spacious house is well maintained, updated every year and plenty spacious for our family of 10 adults + 1 toddler. It is only a quiet 5 minute bike ride to the beach. The relaxing pool is available just outside the back door and we used it constantly! The kitchen is extremely well-equipped with plenty of seating at the table and bar, the beds very comfortable and bathrooms recently renovated and up-to-date. Electronics are dated, but internet and cable TV/DVD both work fine. We plan on returning again next year!

Great experience!
This is the best home we have rented. We began coming to Kiawah in 1980 and have visited the original hotel, Windswept and various homes for 31 years since that time. It has an easy 5 minute ride to the beach on bikes and has an excellent facility layout. Great pool and a pool table located away from sleeping rooms. Kitchen table seats ten comfortably plus 5 bar chairs. 4 car garage plus elevator. Pam Harrington is the best company we have used. We did have a couple of minor issues. The TV in master did not work. A technician did come to fix, but could not fix it and said he would have Comcast come out, but they never did. The basement door sticks at the top and is hard to close. The material we received said trash pickup was twice per week, but we could not find which two days in the brochures provided. We would definitely rent this home again.

Lovely spacious home for large group.
We had a very restful and fun stay in this spacious house. There was plenty of space for our group of 9. It was spotless when we entered. The downstairs master suite is enormous. Great for someone who needs to work while on vacation. The pool deck is partially covered in case of rain. The kitchen was wonderfully large, functional and well-furnished. It's a bit of a walk to the beach 10-15 min but not bad by bike. We would definitely book here again.

Stay at 5 Avocet
The check in was the easiest ever as it was all on-line. We just showed up at the house at 4:00 and the keys were in a lock box. The house and location were awesome. We had a great time and plan to rent this house again in the future if still available.

Fantastic Kiawah Vacation Home - Plenty of room for 2 families
The best, biggest, most well-equipped home we (2 families) have stayed in over our 15 year annual Kiawah trip vacation. The kitchen is spacious and equipped with EVERYTHING (including an ice machine!) The pool and deck were roomy with gorgeous views of the golf course. All beds were very comfortable -- and upgraded, private bath for each bedroom. The two family rooms were well used -- space for everyone! (Only negative is house technology needs improvement : wifi signals and tv feeds). We will definitely be back!

Beautiful Vacation Home !
We thoroughly enjoyed this house. Everything is well equipped, pool area is awesome. Plenty of room and so nicely laid out! A little far to the beach to walk carrying things. Bikes or car shuttle worked.

Wonderful House
This house was FANTASTIC! It is well laid out, open, and perfect for more than one family. The pool area is so relaxing after a "strenuous" day on the beach, biking or golfing. The house is a short bike ride to the beach.The billiard room is also a fun addition to the otherwise perfect Kiawah experience!!! Would definitely return!!!
Apr 2016
The perfect house for our group!
We were traveling with several families and this house had the perfect layout and amenities to accommodate all of the the adults and children in our group. The pool was a perfect spot to relax and the beach is just a short bike ride away. We would definitely come back and would not hesitate to recommend this house.

5 Avocet & 109 Goldeneye
We had 22 family members share a fabulous week's vacation in two great properties with close proximity to one another. The accommodations could not have been better and although we had an air conditioning problem at 5 Avocet, it was quickly fixed once diagnosed. Each property had a pool which was a great feature for both kids and adults. The billards room at Avocet was a big hit in the evenings. One of our guests was a Navy Chef who said the kitchen at Goldeneye was one of the best equipped he'd ever seen in a residential home. All in all it was a great experience.

Great House!
Everything with the rental process was super easy and the house was amazing. It really satisfied all of our needs. The home is extremely spacious with plenty of areas for people to gather or find a quiet place on their own. We had 3 families staying here and the accommodations worked out beautifully. We also loved the location. It was so peaceful being on the golf course and we enjoyed our bike rides around the neighborhood and to the beach. I would definitely rent this house again.

Clean and spacious
This is a lovely home, with a wonderful view of the golf course. Plenty of room for our 4 adults and 7 children. Extremely clean, well stocked and with a nice location behind the second gate provided you don't mind a little bike ride to the beach. The pool is an added bonus.

Great Vacation with Grandkids!
We arrived on Saturday afternoon with a call from Pam Harrington's office making sure the house met our expectations and everything was in good order. Customer service from the rental staff was excellent. The house was gorgeous and perfect for a week with our children and grandchildren. The pool and deck area were perfect for afternoon fun for the grandkids (set of 2 1/2 year old twins and a 5 year old). The bedding was luxurious and comfortable for a good night's rest! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed as we cooked in most meals. Taking 3 children out to dinner is no fun! We have been vacationing in Kiawah for 10 years and found this house to be perfect!

We had to spend a little extra time figuring out the TV/DVD/house sound system along with the remotes, and the notes were very helpful. We definitely appreciated the ample supply of paper products and soaps.

Thank you for sharing your home with others! It is gorgeous!

Would definitely come back to this house!
We had a family wedding on Kiawah and decided to make a family vacation out of our trip. There were 13 of us and the house was plenty big for all. Great pool table we used everyday, outside pool overlooking the 11th hole par 3 of Osprey Point. Huge grill we used every night. We rented bicycles for the short ride to the beaches. The house had beach chairs. The air conditioning unit broke, they sent somebody within an hour and had it replaced the following day. Courtney was the best from Pam's office. I would call and request her to help you make your rental!

Great Family Vacation Home
Comfortable and spacious home in excellent location on Kiawah. Minutes bike ride from beach. New pool is an excellent addition and affords lagoon and golf views. The bedding is very comfortable and the house easily sleeps 12. The large kitchen isextremely well-equipped with large eating area for family dinners. The billiard room features a high-quality regulation table and we used it nightly.

Minor problems during our one week stay were addressed very quickly by the rental agent. We have reserved the same home for next year and highly recommend this home to anyone planning a family vacation on Kiawah.

Great Family Vacation
This house was great for us and our children and grandchildren. There was so much room, the kids loved the pool, and we loved the view over the golf course and lagoons. Very comfortable outdoor furniture. It was a very short bike ride to the beach The management company took care of the few things we needed immediately. We couldn't have been happier and would love to come back again in the future. Hope they add a few more bar stools. Other new furniture was great!
