Kiawah Island Golf Resort on the private island located just south of Charleston is home to golf courses, wildlife encounters, exciting dining options and more.  Part Tara mansion (of Margaret Mitchell lore) part modern island playground, it was specifically designed so that guests do not see the ocean until they arrive at the lobby.

More than anything, though, the resort operates on a sort of supercharged Southern hospitality. From the genteel front desk staff including Greg and Chris to my ongoing rapport with Charles Pickett Concierge Supervisor where one question turns into a riotous chat to the shuttle drivers who take me to and from various points on the island including Mason Charles, the resort's first employee and JT at the Ocean Room who prepares an entire itinerary for me sourcing maps and planning the logistics, when I casually mention I have a few hours to spare, the resort has cultivated genuine service.

The island boasts 30 miles of biking trails and with Julianna my guide for the Wildlife in the Wetlands Bike Tour I see much of Kiawah's western side.
