About Barbara Gallagher

My husband and I have been married for 14 years and have two energetic and terrific school aged boys. Our family vacationed on Kiawah for 9 years prior to purchasing our villa. It was a dream of ours since the first year we visited to own a villa on Kiawah and two years ago, we were thrilled to finally make that dream a reality. Our two boys love the beach, pools/Water Park, Night Heron park (especially Frisbee Golf) & Nature Center, and the awesome family activities. My husband and I love the beautiful beach, biking, nature, and world class tennis and golf. We live in North Carolina and visit Kiawah every chance we get!

Barbara Gallagher purchased this villa in 2010

Why Barbara Gallagher chose Kiawah Island

We chose this unit for three main reasons. The first is the location. It is an easy four minute walk to the beach and the access has no stairs (which makes it easy when hauling all of your and your kids stuff to the beach!) The second is that it has amazing views of the lagoon and we love to watch the wildlife. The third is that it is very bright and airy and has plenty of space for our family. We love it!

What makes this villa unique

The best benefits of our unit are beach access, views, Resort privileges including terrific family and adult pools, wireless internet and that it is walking distance to almost everything. It also has new flooring, paint, multiple updates and feels very well kept and clean inside.

Truly Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time my family and I have stayed at this location. As the other reviews state, my husband and I fully agree that the wildlife views from overlooking the lagoon make this villa very inviting. We saw: the resident alligator, the ospreys and their nest, cormorants, egrets, lizards, crows, some other kind of diving awesome. You can sip your coffee and watch the wildlife highway. Our children are ages 8 and 5 and this location is also perfect as it's a short (5 minutes? Maybe 3) bike ride away from the Night Heron activity center and the POOLS! I haven't even mentioned the beach yet, have I? Well, it's very close. You get to walk over a bridge over the lagoon previously mentioned, and again, 5 minutes later (everything seems 5 minutes away from this close and wonderful!) you are at the beach; and you might catch a round of golf as you walk by a hole or two. I happen to play tennis and lo-and-behold the Roy Barth tennis courts are 2 minutes at most can sometimes hear the tennis balls being hit when you're outside the villa. My children occasionally want a sweet treat and for that, the ice cream "Beaches and Cream" shop in the main floor of the Sanctuary is guessed it.....a very short 5 minute walk away. If you want to treat yourself to a massage or facial or eat at the Ocean Room......all located in the Sanctuary....again so close. If you prefer, thanks to the resort privileges Barb has, you can call for a vehicle to pick you up to drive you instead! Barb is wonderful to work with. This location is quiet, yet close to everything and the large, beautiful trees and shrubs surrounding the villa and the area, and the lagoon, give it a very restful feel. The resort privileges are the icing on the cake. Please consider this location.

Wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in this villa! It was wonderful, peaceful and quiet! The owner was a pleasure to work with as well, we will defiantly be going back. Just a short walk to the beach and night heron park/pool, which our kids absolutely love! On top of that the lagoon we couldn't get enough of! We got to see about 6 alligators the week we were there. One morning we even got to see an alligator catch it's breakfast, it was the coolest thing! Thank you for sharing your villa with us! Can't wait for our next trip to Kiawah Island!

Can't wait to go back to this villa!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this villa! It's located so close to the Barth Tennis Complex and the tennis club adult pool. My husband and son thoroughly enjoyed the Monday morning free demo clinic. They had the friendliest tennis pro instructing their large group. Having the resort amenities included with this rental put it way over the top! We really enjoyed our fun times at the Night Heron pools. My guys loved playing pickup basketball with the other boys in the pool. The Night Heron Park complex provides pool towels, carry-ins are allowed, pool toys are acceptable, even the pool chairs are allowed in the water. We rented bikes for the whole week for under $100 from, great bikes and service.The villa was immaculately cleaned and the room layout was perfect for privacy between the bedrooms suites. We all slept great on the comfy beds. Everything was easy to figure out with Barbara's thorough welcome letter. So many extras were included with this rental. We loved having a crockpot and a colander provided in the nice kitchen. Watching the gators out the big windows was a favorite pastime, especially while sitting in the screened in porch. And watching the birds and squirrels was continually entertaining. The path to the beach is mostly shaded making it a very comfortable walk.

So nice of the owners to let us use their beach chairs and water toys. We were thrilled with this villa! We will be back!! Thank you Barbara and Tommy for sharing your Kiawah home with us.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this villa for a Spring Break trip and it was a huge success. Our kids loved the creek in the backyard and it was so interesting and fun to stand on the bridge and watch the wildlife. The walk to the beach was easy and interesting and the villa had everything we needed. The screened in dining area was the best part. There's lots to do on Kiawah and Barbara went the extra mile and emailed me lots of information and tips about what to do and where to go. Our experience was fabulous and we will likely come back.

Great Kiawah Getaway - close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two-year old daughter and my Mom stayed at Barbara and Tommy's place in April. They were great to work with, gave us helpful tips of things to see and do - and even thoughtfully dropped us a line while we were there to make sure we knew about the upcoming car show. My daughter's favorite activity was to run to the window in the morning and look down at the lagoon in search of the big alligator that came by every day in search of his breakfast. One day we were even rewarded with a big 'snap' that made us all jump. (Poor little fish or bird - but exciting way to start the day for us!) The condo is well-appointed with everything you need, very clean and just the way is is described. We enjoyed the resort privileges too - this really helped me choose this place from the beginning. Thank you very much for sharing your place with us! We hope to be back for we love Kiawah.
