Guests of Property Owners on Kiawah Island are able to book tee times and tennis times on a space available basis only.
The resort gives priority and the ability to reserve times more than a week in advance only to their own guests. As our property is not managed by the resort, you need to wait until you get onto the island to book times. Often, this is not a problem, but during the busiest weeks, it may be. If having guaranteed golf and tennis times are priorities, you should book a rental in a home that is managed by the Kiawah Island Golf Resort.

This is not true for many homes on Kiawah. Due to restrictions placed by the Kiawah Island Golf Resort, many private homes and villas no longer have access to a swimming pool. You should look into this issue as you are making your decision about renting a home.
Turtlecon is owned by the Conway family, formerly of Cleveland Ohio. They fell in love with the south while living for some years in Asheville, North Carolina. Charleston was a favorite destination even then. Peter Conway is a partner in the local real estate firm of Akers and Ellis and manages several Kiawah properties on behalf of his wife and two daughters.
We are not absentee owners, using an impersonal property management company to oversee our properites. In fact, we feel as if we don’t operate rental units – rather we open our homes to new friends. If you stay in our home we want you to feel right at home yourself. If we accomplish that, we have succeeded. We believe that you will find each of our homes to be the perfect base for exploring Kiawah and having the vacation of a lifetime. If there is anything you need, just let us know!
Turtlecon is managed by family friend Dennis Garapic. Dennis and Peter came together to Kiawah to play golf, and to watch the 2007 PGA Senior tournament on the island. Kiawah has gotten into Dennis’ blood, and managing these properties gives him an ironclad reason to be a frequent visitor.
We became enchanted with Kiawah one spring break when we drove up the east coast from Florida looking for the perfect place for a second home. When we arrived on Kiawah, we knew our search was over. It wasn’t any one particular thing – it was everything. For the girls, it was the beach. For Peter, it was the golf, and the biking. For Mary, it was the fact that the island is a nature conservancy. Alligators, turtles, bobcats, oh my! And for all of us, it was the serenity of a Kiawah sunrise, and the dolphins playing on the strand at Captain Sam’s inlet.
Located in the very center of the Island, Turtlcon is handy to EVERYTHING. The beach is five minutes awayl The neighborhood pool is next to the house. We are on the Turtle Point Golf Course, with the Clubhouse and practice area just a few paces away.
As a private home instead of a villa, you are able to grill out, another nice benefit.
