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.

Nice home perfect for our family getaway
We have been renting from Pam Harrington for many years and are never disappointed. This home fit our needs perfectly - great floor plan, allowing us to spread out. Good options for the family members needing to "work at home" in quiet. Location worked well for us to hop on our bikes to go to the beach. Lots of wonderful wildlife - loved sitting on the deck, dining on the screened porch, and of course hitting the bike trails. Would definitely rent this home again.

Great property! The lagoon view was fantastic and the house was perfect. Lots of areas to lounge. We went with a one year old, so crossing a busy street to get to the beach is better suited for older kids, but overall great property. In the late afternoon you could hear a traffic, but overall convenient property.

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.

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.

Location, location, location
We enjoyed our stay at 8 Bufflehead. They house is centrally located and close to the beach. Furnishings were comfortable and the house was well stocked. The only thing that I needed that I didn't find was a steamer basket. The bathrooms have been updated and were very nice. The house does have some fishing out back which was disappointing to my fisherman companion, and there is no use of the garage. But these were minor in the scheme of things. The Pam Harrington group is great to work/rent with. Overall, a very nice property that we would definitely stay at again.

Family Week At 8 Bufflehead Dr.
Our family does not have enough good things to say about our week at 8 Bufflehead Dr. Kiawah. Unfortunately, our week was shortened by two days because of an unavoidable situation at the beginning of the week, but the days we had Monday-Saturday (Checkout) were wonderful. The house was very clean, tastefully decorated, adequately supplied with everything we needed and provided a nice, quiet atmosphere for us to enjoy one another's company. We are all looking forward to staying there again in the near future.

Bufflehead 8 Home with a Pond View
The house had a very nice layout and decor. We enjoyed our location in the Vanderhorst plantation located near many of the ponds for fishing. My son loves to fish and caught several redfish in various ponds. The pond behind the house is beautiful but you are not allowed to fish from the house due to the alligators. We saw many in the pond and a few even ventured into the backyard. The walk to the beach is an easy 10 minutes. We would return but not with the hopes of fishing from the backyard!

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.
