About Dick Gillespie

We discovered Kiawah Island while exploring the 'low country' of South Carolina on a cross country driving trip. We quickly fell in love with the beautiful walking beach, golf courses, bike paths and the lush natural setting. We knew we'd want to come back often, and share it with friends, so we bought a villa close to all the amenities and a short drive from Charleston. Over the years we've continued to invest in keeping everything up to date and like new.

Kris and Dick Gillespie

Dick Gillespie purchased this villa in 1995

Why Dick Gillespie chose East Beach Village

Relaxing weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the unit. It had a great location and was well appointed with most of the necessities. My only criticism would be the furniture and rug on the porch had some pretty significant stains on them. It looked like someone had spilt something on them, creating a stain. Other than that it was great and we are looking forward to booking this unit again.

Owner's Response: Mark, we're glad you enjoyed your stay, but we're disappointed that the rug was not removed and replaced before you arrived. I was informed by the property manager of the stain after your departure and the rug has been replaced. This is the first I've heard about a stain on the furniture, but we'll check it out and get it resolved. We hope to have you back next year!

Excellent apartment and so close to the beach/pool and nature center.

  • 5 of 5

Clean and close to everything. Beach is great flat and wide with a lot of space to play, fish, build sand castles, and swim. Nature Center near with live critters and a small gift shop. We saw alligators, dolphins, comorants, ibis, and caught fish and blue crabs. Wow what a vacation! Apartment was clean and ready upon arrival and minor light bulb replacements taken care of promptly.

Owner's Response: We're glad you found the villa comfortable and liked the location. Sorry that you were disappointed in the 10 am check out time. I have spoken with the property manager to be sure that all guests are reminded of the check out time and assure that no guest is disturbed earlier. We take great pride in employing the best housekeeping service on the island to assure a clean and fresh villa for every guest. We also do our best to accommodate early check-in or late departure if it's requested. We hope to have you back on your next trip to Kiawah.

This Villa is awesome! Great view of the lagoon form the back balcony. Steps away from the beach and close to Night Heron Park. Place was clean and comfortable even with 2 kids and 2 adults. I hope this unit is available the next time we go to Kiawah!.

Perfect location for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I just returned from our trip to Kiawah Island, and we were absolutely blown away by how wonderful of an experience we had! It was an absolutely beautiful place, and we loved the combination of being so close to the beach while feeling like we were immersed in nature as well. This condo was the perfect rental for us. This was absolutely the perfect size for two people to stay comfortably. It was very clean and well-kept. It looks just as it is pictured and we kept saying how we loved how open and well-decorated it was. The kitchen had everything we needed so that we could cook dinner a few nights during our week-long stay. There was a grocery store right before you get on the island that was close enough so we could run to buy anything we needed. We also really enjoyed the screened deck out back. It was very shaded but also had a fan, so when it got too hot for the beach in the afternoon we could sit comfortably on the deck. The beach access was extremely close to this rental property, and we were very pleased to find that when we stayed the beach wasn't very crowded. It was clean and very quiet, with only other people who were renting homes in that section there as well. We were on the beach multiple times a day, and we did things like go for runs or bike rides on the beach and taking evening walks. The condo was central to bike paths, and I'd recommend bringing bikes down or renting them so you can take full advantage. It made for the perfect vacation. Our only concern was we had a really tough time with the lock getting into the front door. We had to pull the door forward in order to turn the key all the way, but it still gave us a tough time getting in. Overall we are so happy we stayed here and hope to make the trip again in the future!

Owner's Response: We're very glad you enjoyed Kiawah and the Villa. We'll have the property manager tune up the lock right away. Hope you come back again. If you do, you can have work like the lock done right away by contacting the property manager on the island.

Very happy vacationer!

  • 5 of 5

We are seasoned Kiawah renters so we already knew howych we love the island. Normally, we rent a 5 bedroom house and bring our entire family. This was just a quick trip for my husband and I and so we had to search for a smaller unit. The condo was exactly as pictured on the website and the location was perfect! Very short walk to the beach....we loved it!
