While you won't have a problem getting around Kiawah Island, The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island does not have a house car for complimentary off-island transportation. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel does keep a list of companies that can provide you with limousine service if you want to leave the picturesque South Carolina barrier island for an outing or if you want a ride to nearby Charleston International Airport. But if you just need some transportation around the 10,000-acre island, there's a van network available to all guests at the luxury hotel. The free service will take you door-to-door anywhere within Kiawah Island Golf Resort.
As a guest of The Sanctuary, there is complimentary transportation on the island (on a first-come, first-served basis) to our golf courses, nature activities, tennis centers and restaurants. The concierge would be delighted to assist any guest in arranging luxury transportation through an outside service to and from the airport or for a day trip in Charleston. Prices vary, depending on needs.
In addition to complimentary shuttle service around the island, The Sanctuary has partnered with Mercedes Benz and has a small fleet of cars available for short term use. Guests may utilize a complimentary hotel Mercedes for a four hour “test drive” during which time they may explore the surrounding areas. For guests looking to utilize a vehicle for a longer period of time, the hotel also has rental vehicles available on property. Arrangements for either service may be made through the hotel’s concierge desk.
