Excellent Location. Excellent Rate. Excellent Owner.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this property. Mr. Herring (the owner) has always been excellent to work with. It's obvious that he truly wants his visitors to enjoy the full experience that Kiawah has to offer. He responded to any question or inquiry that we had immediately. The only problem we ever had was that the key wouldn't open the lock on the door last year. We called Mr. Herring about the situation, and we were in the condo in less than 30 minutes with a new doorknob and new keys. The condo is perfect for a small family or honeymooners. And the property is pet friendly! We were very excited to be able to bring our small Sheltie with us to Kiawah. I highly recommend this condo! I have spent every summer vacation at Kiawah since I was born. My parents were original property owners of one of the homes on Eugenia. They purchased the property in 1959 for $1,000. There have been many, many changes to the Island over the years! So, Kiawah holds a special place in my heart. Since our Eugenia house was sold in 1993, we have stayed in many properties all over the island. This stay at 4282 Mariners Watch was definitely our favorite. Keep in mind that Mr. Herring is in the process of trying to sell this property. The property is a tad bit dated; BUT, he doesn't want to invest in a massive cosmetic upgrade in case the new owners may prefer a different style. I'll be honest, we didn't notice that the place needed updating; but, we have seen reviews that have commented about "needing to be upgraded". The property is very comfortable, and has all amenities needed. The mattress has been replaced since our stay last year and is VERY comfortable. The beach is a short 170 yards away. A path leads directly from the condo straight to the most beautiful 10 mile stretch of beach you can imagine. Bikes are included with this property. One of our favorite activities were riding the bike paths all over the Island. The location of this property is only a short drive to Bohicket Marina, Seabrook Island, and Freshfields Village where Harris Teeter is located along with many tourist shops and restaurants. Our favorite place to eat is La Tela Pizzeria. I know, pizza instead of seafood?? Excellent food for the nights when you feel that you want to try something different and unique. We stayed for 7 nights and the rate was incredible for Kiawah Island. I encourage other visitors to the island to stay at this property. Thank you, Mr. Herring, for 2 great summer vacations!!

1st Vacation as a family of 3=Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

I have to say this was our first time booking VRBO online. We were a little hesitant, but decided to try for our first vacation since our honeymoon 5 years ago and our first with our 2 year old. Needless to say, I am so glad that we did. Kiawah Island was the PERFECT sport for our family of 3. The condo was clean and was just as described in the listing. Mr. Herring was very helpful with any questions we had prior to our stay. We enjoyed eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the outdoor screened-in porch area. We even got to see a deer enjoying breakfast right at our porch. The distance to the ocean was great for us. We were able to pull our son in his wagon to the ocean each morning with all of his toys and beach tent. It was easy to pack up and come inside for nap time and then go back out again in the afternoon. The bikes included were probably one of the best parts. We took all of the bike paths to enjoy all Kiawah's beauty. We visited all of the wildlife/marsh observation towers and enjoyed biking in the evening. I would recommend this unit to anyone who is looking for a great place on a great budget. We will most definitely book again in the future.

Beautiful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at this Mariners Watch place and we love it. The scenery from the back screened porch is a beautiful view of the lake and wildlife. The beach is just yards away with nice boardwalk and beach shower. The beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the south. Kiawah Island is our favorite place to be. Chez Fish is a great restaurant to visit and the outdoor farmers market nearby is nice too.

Perfect location and Price seconds from the Beach

  • 3 of 5

Kiawah Island has the "perfect beach" for beach goers who prefer to avoid the crowds, the commercialism, the boardwalks, and the noise (other than the crashing waves and wildlife.) If you're a small family or a couple looking for an escape, or a golfing trip with a buddy, and you're on a budget but still want to stay on the island, this one bedroom condo is adequate. Nothing is extravagant, fancy, or in "perfect shape", but everything is serviceable for a vacation.

Excellent Kiawah location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just right for us. First floor, plenty of space for two people and our small dog. Only had one small problem with the garbage disposal and the owner replaced it the next day. The condo is really close to the beach and the dog could run free until the middle of march so he had a great time. The free use of bicycles was also a great plus as we used them frequently. Lots of bike paths to ride on and the beach riding was great.We think you will find this a great value with plenty to do.

Convenient location, short walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo was well-suited for our small family of 3. It is close to the beach and nearby Night Heron park and Town Market. We used the included bikes a lot to explore the island. The place is a bit dated and had a little trouble with the garbage disposal and dryer, but overall it's probably one of the least expensive places to stay on the island. Not much counter space for cooking- if you're planning on cooking or eating in I'd recommend going up the road to the Bi Lo on John's Island for groceries rather than the overpriced markets on Kiawah. Also Chez Fish restaurant on John's Island is excellent and reasonably priced. Fred the owner is very personable and accomodating... thank you!
