Location, Location, Location: The villa is ideally located in easy walking distance of the beach, Night Heron Park, and Town Center with its convenience store, fast food restaurant, and full service restaurant. Also near by is The Sanctuary, Kiawah Island Resort's extraordinary new hotel with it's world class European Spa, restaurant, and boutique shopping. This convenience, however, does not come at the expense of the villa's quiet and serene lagoon front setting. This is a very peaceful and relaxed environment without any feeling of urgency or busyness, even during the peak summer season.
Premier Rating: The villa has been totally renovated and refurnished by award winning Kiawah Island Resort designer Donna Horack, ASID, and is rated 'Premier' by Kiawah Island Resort. Only properties rated by and managed by the resort can legitimately identify themselves as 'Premier' properties. The resort reserves the 'Premier' designation 'for a very limited number of properties that are exceptional in every detail'. Because these properties are outstanding, they are in high demand and command higher rental rates. Keep in mind that if a property isn't rated and managed by Kiawah Island Resort it is not a 'Premier' property regardless of what the owner wants to call it.

Located only 22 miles from historic Charleston, S.C., Kiawah Island has become renowned for it's golf and tennis venues, winning prestigious awards from Golf Digest and Tennis Magazine, as well as from Travel and Leisure Golf Magazine. Conde Nast Traveler placed Kiawah on its Gold List and Family Life named Kiawah a 'Top 10 Best Family Resort.' It's ten mile beach has been named one of The Travel Channels ten best beaches in North America. Kiawah is also well known for its spectacular natural beauty due in part to it's low density development and emphasis on conservation. Charleston itself is renowned for it's historic sites and fine dining and is a wonderful place to visit for it's history and well preserved antebellum architecture.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We both grew up in the Northeast, migrating to North Carolina in the late 1970's, in large part to get away from the long and dreary winters! We 'discovered' Kiawah in the early 80's and fell in love with the island and the surrounding area. After visits to many other islands along the Atlantic coast, we found none we liked as much as Kiawah. We bought our first Kiawah property in 1992 and our current villa in 2004. Kiawah has been our home away from home and we cherish the memories of our times there. It has been a wonderful place for exposing our daughter to the wonders of nature and to healthy, active vacationing as she has grown up and become a young adult.
Why the Owner Chose Parkside Villas: Kiawah Island is simply a beautiful barrier island which has been very carefully developed to preserve that beauty. Low density development has been a hallmark of Kiawah from it's original conception to the current day. Preservation of natural habitat has insured that the island is rich with wildlife, much of which is visible to the casual observer. Kiawah's 10 mile beach has been rated a 'top ten' beach in North America by The Travel Channel. Thirty miles of well maintained hiking/biking trails make the entire island accessible to even the unskilled rider. The resort features five public golf courses including the very highly rated 'Ocean Course', a highly rated tennis facility, a five star hotel and spa, and a good assortment of restaurants at various price points. Whether one is seeking a naturalist experience or more civilized indulgences, Kiawah Island is a terrific vacation venue for people of all ages.
