Duneside Villas villa description

Stay in west beach's newest villa!

This property has just completed a total renovation and has re-opened in May 2013.

Duneside Too - The west beach villas are closer to the beach than any other villas on Kiawah Island. Step out of the back door and you are already on the boardwalk, accessing 10 miles of Kiawah's pristine beach.

Each of the 5 bedrooms has its own full bathroom. The two Master bedrooms have King beds; one also has a single daybed.

There is one Queen bedroom and a third bedroom with a King bed. The fifth bedroom has a single bed.

From the second floor balcony you can enjoy an aperitif while watching the moon rise over the ocean. Duneside Too has a large ,airy, fully-equipped kitchen and dining area which overlook the ocean.

Flatscreen TVs in each bedroom and wireless internet keep you connected to the outside world - but only if you wish!

Pool access is included! The Duneside Villas have the use of the neighborhood swimming pool, just 100 yards down the street. This is a a benefit not available to many rental properties on Kiawah.

For your cars, there are two reserved parking spaces in front of the villa.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: The 1114 Duneside villa is owned by the Conway family, formerly of Cleveland Ohio. They fell in love with the south while living for some years in Asheville, North Carolina. Charleston was a favorite destination even then. Peter Conway is a partner in the local real estate firm of Akers & Ellis Real Estate and Rentals. He manages several Kiawah properties on behalf of his wife and two daughters. We are not absentee owners, using an impersonal property management company to oversee our properites. In our view, we don’t operate rental units – rather we open our homes to new friends. If you stay in our home we want you to feel right at home yourself. If we accomplish that, we have succeeded. We believe that you will find each of our homes to be the perfect base for exploring Kiawah and having the vacation of a lifetime. If there is anything you need, just let us know! Duneside Too is managed by family friend Dennis Garapic. Dennis and Peter came together to Kiawah to play golf, and to watch the 2007 PGA Senior tournament on the island. Kiawah has gotten into Dennis’ blood, and managing these properties gives him an ironclad reason to be a frequent visitor.

              Why the Owner Chose Duneside Villas:
              We became enchanted with Kiawah one spring break when we drove up the east coast from Florida looking for the perfect place for a second home. When we arrived on Kiawah, we knew our search was over. It wasn’t any one particular thing – it was everything. For the girls, it was the beach. For Peter, it was the golf, and the biking. For Mary, it was the fact that the island is a nature conservancy. Alligators, turtles, bobcats, oh my! And for all of us, it was the serenity of a Kiawah sunrise, and the dolphins playing on the strand at Captain Sam’s inlet.

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              The west beach area of Kiawah has numerous advantages. Just inside the gate, it is a short drive or bike ride to the Freshfields Shopping complex. And the west beach villas are much closer to the beach than units farther down the beach. Combine that with a quiet, family friendly neighborhood, complete with a pool, and you ave a setting which is beyond compare. There is also a nice community pool 100 yards from the villa. Many Kiawah rentals have no pool access at any price, but it is free for our guests.
