Our villa is the closest and most private villa in the Tennis Club Area to the beach with the best lagoon view. There is nothing for quite a distance on the left side of us and a short distance on the right side of our single building of only four units, is the pretty footbridge over the big lagoon. All you do to get to the beach is walk over the bridge and you'll see the walkway to the beach and it is less than a five minute walk. You can't get much better than that!
The exposure is great! We have the best lagoon view. You look all the way up the lagoon from the dining room, living room, screened porch and master bedroom. It is always cheerful and light. We're right on the water and you watch the alligators sun on the bank and swim by and the beautiful birds and lots of greenery.
Beautifully updated kitchen, porcelain floors, granite counters, stainless steel GE appliances! All new mattresses in the lovely light bedrooms- Vaulted ceiling in the master.
This first floor unit has no huge stairs to climb so you don't have to carry your luggage and groceries up a load of stairs like so many villas! It is beautifully decorated in pastels, all newly updated and re-upholstered. It has been recently carpeted and painted. We have our own housekeeper who keeps it immaculate. We limit it to four people with a very few exceptions, and that is how we keep our place in such good condition, and our housekeeper happy.
There is grass cloth in the living room and halls, and beautiful wallpaper in the kitchen and baths. The master bedroom includes a dressing room, two sinks and a bath, and a queen bed, and beautiful furniture. It also has two chairs and a table. The second bedroom has two twin beds and a bath, and a sitting area with two chairs and a table. Very bright and sunny! The porch has a lovely Brown Jordan table and chair set. The kitchen is fully equipped and was beautifully renovated There is beautiful front loading washer and dryer in the laundry room. There is a flat screen tv in the master bedroom.
Both bedrooms have radios, and the living room has cable TV, VCR, DVD and a CD-tape player that we ask not to be brought to the beach. It is very beautiful with all brand new GE clean steel appliances, lovely new porcelain floors and gorgeous new granite counter tops. First floor unit- no long stairs to climb!

My family and I have vacationed on Kiawah Island for the last 16 years. Thirteen of those years I have stayed at Joy's villa. The first year on Kiawah we rented a house and the another year I waited to late to book Joy's villa and had to find another, which was a huge mistake on my part. Joy's villa is always very clean and well kept. The beautiful beach is just a short walk away and the villa is located by a peaceful lagoon. I now take my grandchildren on vacation here and they never get bored as there is always something to do and wildlife to see. We enjoy setting on the screened in porch to watch "Big Al", the alligator, swim thru each morning. Bottom line, I think this villa is in the perfect location and I highly recommend it.
I was searching for a family vacation (wife, 23 & 25 year old daughters) and "they" selected Charleston. Why they wanted to leave Huntington Beach CA in the summer to go to S.C. - I don't know. But I gave in. And don't regret it one bit; well, I regret not taking my golf clubs.
We picked this location first because of the proximity to the resort and beach; second because of the reviews. As soon I started communicating with the owner (Joy), I felt it was a great choice. She was pleasant to deal with and very eager to give us advice and things to do and places to get best prices.
When we finally checked in - it was seamless. All the information was spot on. We must have a picked a quiet week because our car was the only one in our parking lot almost the whole week. The condo was private, quiet and comfortable. Location was awesome - right next to lagoon and short walk to beach. The interior of the condo was not as contemporary as some of the other condo's. But again, it was comfortable and well equipped. We definitely made ourselves at home right away and relaxed without worry. (Remember - three adult women in a two bedroom condo. What can go wrong there?)
During our stay Joy continued to communicate with us via e-mail to make sure our trip was going well and if we needed anything; which we didn't. I have to say it was one of our more relaxing and enjoyable vacations in a while. We really look forward to a return trip to Kiawah Island like most of the other renters that have stayed at the condo multiple times. This time I will take the clubs and tennis rackets. Kids - maybe.
Thanks Joy for a great vacation rental.
Joy's villa on Kiawah Island overlooks the lagoon, is a brief walk to the beach and is easily accessable to stores and restuarants in town. In addition to the beautiful beaches on Kiawah, there is an abundance of wildlife - alligators, egrets, dolphins, bobcats, turtles, etc. There is also great fishing in the area. The nearby Bohicket Marina offers good restaurants and is a great place to enjoy a cocktail, watch the sunset and listen to a live band. This 2 bedroom villa is very comfortable and has all needed amenities. It includes a screened in porch that provides a picturesque view of the lagoon. Also Joy was responsive to any rental inquiries and was very kind to offer a variety of recommendations for different restaurants and activities on the island. Would recommend renting bikes as a great way to explore the island. A wonderful villa on a beautiful island made for a very relaxing family vacation. Would highly recommend !
This was a nice two bedroom ground floor condo unit. Master bedroom had a decent master bath and access to the screened porch. The kitchen had updated appliances and granite counter tops.
The beach is a ten minute walk on paths or you can ride your bike in a few minutes. The condo was clean and everything worked fine, I would recommend to friends and I would return again.
Opportunities for improvement- TV and video were outdated, guest towels were worn and kitchen cabinets cluttered a bit.
I had friends down from Ohio and this was the perfect place for them to relax for the week and for myself to visit with them. It was conviently located near the beach, lagoons, and other attractions. The condo was very comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Spent a week mid September at this villa and absolutely loved my stay. Joy the owner provided me with detailed information on all amenities and features of her property, while also giving me much on what's available to see/do during my visit. Great location for long bicycle rides on vast network of trails that extend widely throughout this Resort. Being a weekend photographer, I was impressed with the large amount of birds and wildlife within a short ride or walk from the villa. Short walk to access beautiful white sanded beach that seemed to extend for miles. My only problem was the feeling that I should have stayed another week.
Definitely recommend this property to couples who want an enjoyable quaint spot where everything is easily accessible, with shopping & decent restaurants only a short ride away. I felt that if any problems with Villa had arisen, the owner would have been more than willing to assist in getting things taken care of as soon as possible.
I don't believe there is a better location on the island. It is in East Beach where the action is, and so much closer to the most beautiful home area to ride your bike into more easily. We have a grand view, only a one bedroom unit upstairs and very private- not a complex, only a single building of four units and lots of space around it. it's very convenient to the beach and close to the great new inn, The Sanctuary .. We are so fortunate to watch beautiful bird life . Bring your binoculars! We have a great screened porch which many villas do not have and it makes such a huge difference in enjoying the villa. You'll not want to stay anywhere else. It is so much nicer than being in a big complex!!!! Please call for many additional pictures I can send to you.
