Help us to write , “the next chapter” to our lives by staying in our completely renovated, Captain's Walk Villa, located within the beautiful gates of Keowee Key!
We are Pat and Kim Guillory, originally from New Orleans, transplanted in the beautiful state of South Carolina, and believe me when we say, “Aint Nothin Finer”!
Our villa kitchen has been updated with stainless steel appliances as well as granite counter tops and custom cabinetry. It is well equipped to accommodate all of your cooking and entertainment needs. There is a grill and outdoor seating for four to accommodate evenings on the deck overlooking the tranquil tree-lined golf course.
The original paneling was painted a warm gray. We retained the wood “ship-lap” paneling (going the wrong way, per Chip and Joanna) for a more authentic feel. We have installed beautiful, bamboo flooring downstairs, upstairs and on the stairs. The tile floor throughout the rest of the living and kitchen area provides a cooler floor in the summer and rugs are provided for the fall/winter months. The bathroom has been completely tiled and remodeled and is glass-enclosed, with a heater to keep you warm in the winter months. The upstairs loft provides cosy reading nooks , with an amazing view out the “wall of windows”. Two twin beds with custom linens and drapes, are located in the downstairs bedroom. The sofa in the main living area becomes a queen size bed for additional guest. This unit comfortably accommodates 4 people, but will sleep up to 6.
Keowee Key is located on Lake Keowee. A pristine 18,500 acre lake in the upstate of South Carolina. With breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains Lake Keowee is truly a hidden gem of the South East. Lake Keowee boasts over 300 miles of shoreline with tranquil coves and majestic open water views.
