About the property

1 BR, 2 BA Private Corner Waterfront/Beach Condo. Two real beds!

Enjoy the beauty and relaxation of Seabrook Island. Just steps from the back deck of this villa, walk along the wide soft white sand of semi-private Pelican Beach located on the private gated island of Seabrook. Daytime temps average 75 degrees in October, 67 degrees in November, 60’s in December. Seabrook Island is a quiet and lush residential island only 35 minutes from downtown Charleston. Our first floor end unit at 1311 Pelican Watch comfortably sleeps four people in two real beds (King in the bedroom and a pull down Queen Murphy bed in the living area) and has two full baths, one with tub/shower, the other with shower. Watch the boats sailing by and see pelicans and dolphins as you enjoy this uniquely beautiful location. Beach umbrella, beach chairs, sand toys and beach towels are all provided. Look out at the water from the kitchen, living room and outdoor deck. Reviewed by our guests as very comfortable and immaculately clean with a well stocked kitchen and great beds. Seabrook Island has no commercial space so it is peaceful and traffic is very light. It's a great place for bike rides (rentals available and delivered to you). There is a large grocery, many restaurants, shops and more just outside the Seabrook Gate at Bohicket Marina and Freshfields Village. This villa is freshly decorated with new hardwood floors and a kitchen fully stocked for all your needs. Two real and very comfortable beds - no pull out couches! Plush towels in the two full baths and high thread count linens on the new luxury foam King mattress in the bedroom and TempurPedic mattress on the Queen sized Murphy Bed in the Living Area. Beautiful panoramic sunset views from the living room, dining table and deck. We provide all the basics - washer/dryer, dish detergent, hand and laundry soaps, paper products, shampoo and hair dryers in both bathrooms, basic seasonings and EVOO in the pantry and every accessory, utensil, baking pan and piece of cookware you need - so you just check-in and relax. Iron and Ironing Board provided. Smart TVs, Cable and WiFi, BluRay/DVD player.

An Amenity Card ($11 refundable deposit) is available at the Seabrook Island Amenity Office for use of the Lake House which offers Indoor & Outdoor Pools, basketball courts, a Library and Fitness Center. The outdoor pool is available year round without charge. There is a fee of $15/day or $40/3-day pass per person for use of the Indoor Pool/Fitness Center. There is a children's park adjacent to the outdoor pool area.

The Equestrian Center on Seabrook Island offers guided trail and beach rides and pony rides for the kids. Contact them directly for fees, hours and reservations.

About The Owner

I was raised in St. Charles, IL, a suburb of Chicago, and moved to South Carolina fifteen years ago. I learned to sail here and love the warm and friendly hospitality of Low Country.

Why The Owner chose Seabrook Island

I moved to Charleston fifteen years ago. I love the beauty of Low Country, the fresh seafood and the open and friendly laid-back elegance of Charleston and the surrounding barrier islands. I moved to Seabrook Island in 2012 and relax every time I drive through the gate. My family loves the Equestrian Center for rides or just feeding carrots to the horses in the pasture. We treasure the private beaches and beautiful hiking trails filled with native foliage and beautiful birds. Since Seabrook Island has no commercial area, it's perfect for bicycles. We frequent Bohicket Marina and Fresh Fields Village, both less than a mile from the Seabrook Gate, for the delicious food, sailing charters and relaxed atmosphere.

What makes this villa unique

Seabrook Island is a private, gated residential getaway with 24/7 security. There are no commercial businesses on the island - it is quiet and beautiful in all seasons. The views from the deck are spectacular, especially the panoramic sunset views. It's a one minute walk across the boardwalk from the deck to the wide white sands of private Pelican Beach. Pelican Watch is quiet, peaceful and beautiful, with lots of entertainment and restaurant choices in nearby Bohicket Marina and Fresh Fields Village. And only ~ 30 minute drive from historic downtown Charleston. It's a little slice of paradise.

Beautiful Villa in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Pelican Villa. All the necessary comforts from home, along with spectacular sunsets and a quick stroll to the beach. The perfect spot to unwind and relax with my family. Super close to Charleston, for a trip to the town, aquarium and great local restaurants. We loved this home and hope to stay there again one day soon!

Hurricane bummer

  • 3 of 5

Property had some minor issues such as broken shutters, could not lock sliding door, dirty furnace filter, noisy ceiling fan in bedroom, and being able to hear every foot step of the tennants above us. Was only able to stay 2 nights due to hurricane Florence and evacuations. Only received half refund of what it cost. Real bummer since with the unit cost and all the groceries we bought and could not keep, the trip cost us over $1000 for 2 nights.

Owner's Response: Dave, Thank you for your feedback. I know Florence cut short a planned week of relaxation. Though I was able to refund four nights of your stay and the taxes associated with that, I could not refund the cleaning fee as my housekeeper still needed to clean after your stay and the full amount charged is her fee. I also can’t control VRBO fees and they apparently did not refund any portion of that. I know you were disappointed and I’m sorry for that. I did what I could to make you whole. I hope you’re not now impacted back home by the remnants of this storm.

Everything was well appointed. We enjoyed the sparse crowds on the beach and all of the great amenities that John offered. He was very responsive to questions and offered great information. We will be back!

John is great to work with. Very easy process. Villa is lovely. Don’t ruin your vacation with an uncomfortable bed. The beds in this villa are superbly comfortable with wonderful sheets. The porch is perfect for relaxing. A very peaceful slice of the Atlantic. Highly recommend!
