Kiawah Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4) Close to Beach

This beautiful villa, completely renovated in 2012, is located on Kiawah Island’s West Beach, only seconds from the shops and restaurants at the Straw Market and a three-minute walk to the beach. A second floor villa overlooking the West Beach tennis courts and a short stroll to Cougar Point golf course make this unit the perfect location for your Kiawah Island vacation. The villa is also just steps from the Sandcastle, ideal for guests attending one of the Sandcastle’s many weddings, rehearsal dinners and banquets throughout the year.

Enjoy cooking in the completely renovated kitchen, complete with granite countertops, a beautiful backsplash, new appliances and everything you will need during your stay. Relax after a day at the beach with a cocktail on the screened in porch, or unwind in the light and airy living area, which is appointed with beautiful hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, custom furniture, high speed Wi-Fi and a flat screen TV. The stylish sofa converts to a full/queen bed, which means this villa can comfortably accommodate up to four guests.

The bedroom is a calm and cozy retreat with neutral colors and furnishings, Berber carpet and a flat screen TV. Attached is a spacious walk-in closet that includes a washer and dryer. The bathroom has also been beautiful updated with granite countertops and a tiled shower.

The world-renowned tennis facilities and golf courses, miles of bike paths, and beautiful unspoiled beach make Kiawah Island the perfect vacation any time of the year. Should you choose to leave the Island, Charleston is just a 30 minute drive from the villa. This beautiful city boasts antebellum houses, renowned restaurants, colorful outdoor markets and great shopping. Enjoy an afternoon at The South Carolina Aquarium, take a historic horse carriage tour or simply stroll along The Battery and Rainbow Row.

The villa includes all linens, a washer and dryer, a fully-equipped, updated kitchen, flat screen TVs and beautiful furnishings. The villa does not include pool access or resort amenities. Stays of three nights or less will be charged an additional fee for housekeeping. Priority booking will be given to weekly stays.

About Kathryn and Richard Cook

My husband and I both grew up in North Carolina and spent many holidays, summers and vacations with family and friends at Kiawah Island. When we got engaged, we immediately knew Kiawah was where we wanted to be married. A few years later, we purchased this property only a short distance from where we exchanged our vows. We are excited to share this beautiful villa with others and hope you love Kiawah as much as we do.

Just spent 11 nights at this great condo on Kiawah! Conveniently located near the entrance of Kiawah and just steps from the beach. My daughter and I and our dogs had a fabulous visit!

Tennis court villa

  • 3 of 5

I enjoyed my stay in the tennis court villa. It was close to the Straw Market , the beach and front entrance of Kiawah. The villa had been renovated so the kitchen area was nice and the walk in shower was great. As with all these type of rentals they are never as clean as home. The bathroom was clean but some of the silverware and dishes were dirty. I ended up washing all the silverware and dishes. The floor was sandy which is to be expected at a beach resort. I do clean durning my stay so a vacuum that worked properly would have been useful. The vacuum at the villa is not good. The furniture was worn and not as nice as pictured. All that being said, I would stay in this villa again because I know what to expect. thank-you.

Clean and close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

This was my second stay at this unit and again it was clean and well stocked. It's such a beautiful beach and wIth only a 3 minute walk, my dog and I did a lot of walking, even in the rain. There's also a bike trail close to the unit that seems to go on forever. I'm planning a couple of long weekends and would definitely consider this unit again. The owners are very nice and accomodating.

A wonderful place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay at this cute and clean condo. I love the size of it...just perfect! We had everything we needed and the kitchen was well-stocked. Perhaps one of the best parts is location. It's minutes from the beach. Also brought my dog along and there's plenty of nice walking paths. thankyou Richard and Kathryn for opening up your condo for a place to vacation! It was great!

Great weekend at Kiawah!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a long weekend at the villa, and it was just the relaxing weekend we needed. The location is convenient to the beach and bike trails, and we took advantage of the screen porch every morning. We stayed in one night to cook dinner, and the kitchen had everything we needed! Kathryn was a great host - offering lots of suggestions on things to do on and around the island. We would recommend the villa for anyone looking for a relaxing weekend away!
