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.

Great stay !!

  • 4 of 5

Great stay. Very clean and the location was outstanding. The only negative for us would be the uncomfortable furniture, but who goes to the coast to stay inside. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location and clean villa with a well-equipped kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the easy walk to the beach, the size of the bedrooms and the balconies off of each. Also appreciated the washer and dryer down the hall, the well-equipped kitchen and the nicely updated bathrooms. We did think that the living room furniture was in need of some new cushions as well as the bedding and pillows in both bedrooms. We enjoyed the many bike paths covering Kiawah as well as shopping at Fresh Fields and even a round of golf--a great long weekend for our family of four!

Great location steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Spacious condo with great balcony views of the ocean. Well stocked kitchen and updated baths. Appreciated the use of chairs and beach toys. Easy parking and condo is located close to stairs/elevator. Building is dated and on the far side of the island but close to Fresh Fields and a Southern Kitchen (best place we ate!). Would stay again.

Great Oceanfront Location

  • 4 of 5

Close to the beach and easily accessible on Kiawah Island. The property with living area and 4 queen sized beds handled our family of five comfortably. The location on the island was very convenient for trips to Charleston and Johns Island.
