About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with ocean views from both bedrooms and the living room, this Kiawah Island Shipwatch villa is perfect for a relaxing getaway or a fun, family vacation. Each bedroom has its own private deck, two queen-size beds, and the villa comfortably accommodates four adults.

Each bedroom also has cable TV and its own full bath. Wireless internet is available throughout the villa. The tastefully decorated villa has a deck off the living room which is perfect for morning coffee or evening drinks. Situated just beyond the dunes on the second floor, the beach is just an elevator ride away.

Kiawah is a privately gated, beachfront resort community just a short drive from the historic city of Charleston. Kiawah is the perfect destination for a variety of interests: sun bathing, beachcombing, swimming in the ocean, bird and nature watching, golf, tennis, biking, jogging, shopping, dining, and more.

A beautiful island with ten miles of wide sandy beaches, Kiawah has an expansive maritime forest where nature blends seamlessly with the islands’ accommodations and activities. During a visit, it is common to spot a wide variety of wildlife including dolphins, alligators, deer, osprey, and great blue heron.

Bike rentals are available to take advantage of the island's 30 miles of bike trails through the forest and connecting to the beach. Kiawah Island's beach slopes gently into the surf, making it an ideal spot for swimming and sunbathing. The hard-packed sand is perfect for jogging or biking.

Located in the West Beach area, the villa is very convenient to a variety of shopping and dining options. Steps from the villa, the Straw Market includes a restaurant, ice cream shop, and convenient island stores. Just outside the Kiawah entry, Freshfields Village, and Bohicket Marina and Yacht Club offer an assortment of boutiques, a full grocery store, restaurants, and convenience services.

With several outstanding courses, Kiawah is a world-class golf destination. The Jack Nicklaus-designed Turtle Point is ranked as one of the top ten courses in the state and has hosted several important championships. The Pete Dye-designed Ocean Course hosted the 1991 Ryder Cup, the 1997 World Cup, and the 2003 World Cup Championship. The Ocean Course provides panoramic ocean views on most holes and is known as one of the country's most beautiful and demanding rounds of golf.

Kiawah is also rated as one of the top tennis resorts in the country by Tennis Magazine. Kiawah boasts two state-of-the-art tennis centers and a wide array of teaching programs. The West Beach facilities are adjacent to the villa site and feature composition courts, hard courts, and lighted courts for nighttime play.

Kiawah is extremely kid friendly, offering a wide array of recreation programs for the whole family. The 21-acre Night Heron Park features basketball courts, volleyball courts, soccer fields, a nature center, and a fitness trail. Programs include birding and crabbing tours, outdoor concerts in Night Heron Park, and sand sculpture contests. While all guests on Kiawah Island can access park programs, resort pool access and resort privileges are not available with this rental.

Family fun

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed the condo and especially liked the sliding glass doors off of each bedroom and the living room. As we slept with the doors open each night, it felt like we were camping on the beach. The condo offered fun games, books and puzzles that kept us entertained on cold days. There were many dishes, pans and utensils and the property was quiet, well maintained and peaceful. The walk to the beach was gorgeous along the deck and we saw many deer and other wildlife as we sat on the balcony each night.

Beautiful Atlantic Ocean Views from 3 decks

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family weekend at this well appointed condo. The elevator was always waiting for us, the kitchen had everything we needed, the beds were comfortable, and the views were fabulous. The beach is really nice here and it is an easy walk, The rental company was very courteous and allowed us to stay longer on our last day. Thank you for a memorable vacation.

Kiawah Summer Trip

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful vacation in Kiawah! This condo was one of the most well-maintained condos that I've stayed in. All of the furniture seemed in good condition and the electronics were up to date. The kitchen and the bathrooms look like they had been completely redone recently and were nice. The view of the beach was great and it was very convenient to be right on the beach because we spent most of our time there. It was great to have some toys and chairs provided for us so we didn't have to buy them. Overall, the checking in and out was very easy and we took advantage of the complementary movie borrowing for the evenings. The condo was next to a collection of shops and was a convenient walk for breakfast and to get our Kiawah gear. We found it no trouble to rent bikes and used them to explore the island; we even saw an alligator! This is a great villa and I wouldn't hesitate to book it again!

Best View On Kiawah!

  • 5 of 5

We had an great time during our stay! My family and I have been coming to Kiawah for decades and the combination of the ocean and garden view is perfect. The villa was well maintained and had extras for kids (beach toys, chairs, games for a rainy day, etc.). Checking in and out was very easy. This is the villa to be in! Thank You!!!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Kiawah last fall was incredible. The condo was the perfect size for our 4 person family and the teens loved having their own beds. The entire condo had a light beachy feeling and was very well kept. Everyday we went down to lounge under the umbrellas or play in the surf. The beach was great for running, biking, and taking a stroll down. My daughter loved all the sand dollars and starfish that she collected. When we came back up to relax the porches had a great view of the beach and I could even see my son sailing out there. The sunsets were spectacular and we found some great seafood for dinner. When the sun went down we sent the teens away to play laser tag or see a movie and had some great alone time. The large flatscreen Tv and the mini library were perfect for relaxation. I consider this to be one of the best vacations we've had and look forward to getting the same condo again this year.

Kiawah visit with friends

  • 4 of 5

The property was very nice and the villa was immaculate. The only complaint was the inflexibility of the check out time. The property was very sparsely populated, so the night before we left I called and asked to have my checkout time extended to 11:00 am from 10:00 am. I was told that their checkout time was 10:00 am and it the maids expected the villa to be empty. I have never stayed anywhere that I could not get a late checkout.

Owner's Response: The guest is correct that a late check-out request during the off-season is a reasonable request. Unfortunately, there was a mix up with the staff at our property management company because a manager was not on duty Sunday evening to check for conflicts and approve the request. The guest should have been provided the option of checking back in the morning with a manager and the manager would have approved the request. We use an on-site property management company to help ensure that the property is clean and well-maintained for the comfort of our guests. We are sorry that the check-out policy was rigidly applied in this case and apologize for the inconvenience.
