About Maxine Spohn

I bought this unit the first week June of 2012. Having been a regular guest on Kiawah, I found it almost impossible to leave once here. I knew I had to have a villa on the ocean. I love fishing hiking, especially bike riding, walking the beach, reading, eating great food, the symphony, theater, music, art, and my most favorite is people--getting to know people. Kiawah has it all.

Maxine Spohn purchased this villa in 2012

Why Maxine Spohn chose Kiawah Island

I knew that I needed a view and since Kiawah has a 4 story building restriction, I wanted to be on the top floor because the view of the ocean is so beautiful from here. Even the Sanctuary Hotel one building away is only 3 stories tall. It was important to me to not only wake up each morning looking at the ocean but also hearing it. My favorite city in the US is Charleston and Kiawah is such close proximity.

What makes this villa unique

Watching the glorious Kiawah sunset from my covered balcony and having a great glass of wine with my friends and family is the stuff memories are made of. Having world class golf courses in my backyard to be relished and enjoyed as well as the first class tennis facilities. The spa at the Sanctuary has been enjoyed by my friends and family...it is rated as one of the top 5 spas in the US.

A perfect vacation on Kiawah Island

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to stay at this magical property. It is warm and inviting and has the perfect location on the beach on lovely Kiawah Island. The home lacks for nothing and is beautifully decorated and comfortable. We had not come to this island before but will certainly be back. I cannot say enough about the accommodations but have to say the luckiest part was the owner Maxine. From the moment I spoke to her, I considered her a friend. She had a bottle of wine waiting for us upon our arrival and goes to extraordinary lengths to make your stay as perfect as possible. Usually when you go to a new place on vacation it takes a few days to get your bearings and learn where to go. Maxine prepares a list of dining options, things to not miss, bicycle recommendations and even helped us with ideas in Charleston. We were able to immediately relax and enjoy all that this magical island has to offer. There is no question that we will go back and no place we would ever want to stay at more.

Fantastic family stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with our children and grandchildren in Maxine's condo. The extra beach chairs were great since the chairs we rented were picked up at 6. The beds were so comfortable. Extra thick and plush. Treasured memories and an owner who was always just a phone call away! Thank you Maxine

The BEST pre rental experience I've ever had

  • 5 of 5

I worked with Maxine to rent her beautiful condo in February. She was a dream going above and beyond to make sure my experience booking her place was exceptional and easy. Her true character came to light when we had to cancel due to a family emergency. She made sure I got my refund in a timely manner and called me to be sure all had been taken care of. She was so nice, professional,and very caring. I can't wait to work with her again and have told all my family and friends to do the same. It's so hard in this day and time to find a real person that really cares about your comfort and well being and not just views you as a renter. She was lovely and I appreciate her so very much. Hats off to Maxine.

Everything I wanted and more! Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Maxine, what can I say, it was everything you described and more. We loved our week at your home. It was beautiful, clean and lovely. My two young sons loved it as well. We had everything we needed! We were so comfortable in your home and I just emailed you to rebook for next year! We loved Kiawah as well. So much to do and see. We cannot wait to come back. We were so blessed to have found such a beautiful place to spend quality time with our sons.
