Overview

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 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.

Good location on a fantastic beach.

  • 3 of 5

The condo is in an excellent location with good views from all three of the balconies (each room has it's own balcony). But there were a few problems that for us detracted from our stay. The biggest problem was that the air conditioning did not work at all in one of the bedrooms, so the temperature in that room was too hot to sleep comfortably. We reported this on our second day there but it wasn't fixed before we left. I think it is unlikely they didn't already know it was broken. Personally I think it is not acceptable that, for a place that was costing over 300 per night, the ac wasnt working. The beds and pillows were also uncomfortable. The bed pillows were especially cheap, and some of the blankets were worn. We stayed in Charleston at the hampton inn immediately after our stay here and the beds and pillows were far superior quality.

Other than these things the condo was clean and well furnished and great location on a fantastic beach.

Btw, we were also lucky to see sea turtles nesting.

Scenic Kiawah Villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a very nice spring break at this pretty beachfront villa. Very tidy and well kept. Views of the ocean and beach were magnificent and I spent a lot of time on the porch for this reason. Appreciated the beach items and the games and books for borrowing. The large flat screen was useful when it rained. Overall, very nice to stay and convenient for access to the rest of the island and being less crowded than other parts of the island.

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.
