About Maxine Spohn
Growing up in Dallas, Texas (Highland Park), there was not much opportunity of water related vacations. I knew the ocean restored and renewed me and I began to search for my place. When I purchased on Kiawah, I wanted my home to reflect how I chose to live my life...in a beautiful place with comfort and amenities. I also decided to rent my home to those who wanted the same level of amenities..'the best of the best'. My guests are so wonderful and delightful that they have become friends and we both look forward to their return visits to Kiawah. I currently live in Atlanta, Ga.
Maxine Spohn purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Maxine Spohn chose East Beach Village
. I have traveled the world and visited many beaches and when I discovered Kiawah, I knew that I was finally HOME. I was overwhelmed with the beauty of the island, animal and thriving marine life, beautiful amenities and accommodations, and warmth of the people. The nearby proximity of Charleston was a major plus.
What makes this Villa unique
Upon opening the front door, what struck me was the sweeping panoramic view of the ocean. There is a 4 story building restriction on Kiawah passed after my building was completed. The view from the balcony of the beach, dunes, and ocean are unsurpassed on the island.

My family just returned from a perfect beach vacation. We have rented homes several times on Kiawah and love the island. This trip was made especially wonderful because the villa owner, Maxine, went out of her way to be sure we were comfortable in her property. I've never experienced such care from any other private owner! She provides her renters with directions, suggestions of activities, and a long list of restaurants both on and off the island. Maxine is clearly very knowledgeable about Kiawah and Charleston so her advice can be trusted 100%.
The villa itself is beautiful and very comfortable. It was great to have 2 master suites since my daughter, her husband, and their 2 year old daughter were with us. Everyone had their own space and bathroom. Being on the beach was especially nice with a small child. But my granddaughter probably said it best for all of us on the morning we had to leave - "I want to stay! I don't want to go home!"
Thank you, Pam, for your glowing testimonial. It was special for me to contribute in any way to your memorable family experience on Kiawah. You were so charming to work with and it was a pleasure to provide for your needs. When a two year old doesn't want to go home, then I know I've done something right! It's hard to describe the allure and beauty of Kiawah, isn't it? I too am looking forward to your return.
Perfect villa on the beach with amazing host
Our family stayed in Maxine's villa for Spring Break this year. My review is late, but the memories are still vivid! The vacation was a dream even before we left home. Maxine provided spot-on tips and recommendations for restaurants and activities so that we were well prepared when we arrived. Angel Oak Restaurant and Fat Hen were highlights! The villa is in a perfect location on Kiawah, and it is in impeccable condition. Everything was clean and comfortable--and elegant. Beach items like chairs, towels, toys, and boogie boards were provided and very welcome. The kitchen had everything we needed for our stay. The layout of the villa is also fantastic--with each bedroom providing a great deal of privacy and enough room for everyone to spread out, and the main living area roomy enough for all to hang out. We love to stay beachfront, and this is an ideal beachfront property with an easy walk down the boardwalk to a wide and sandy stretch of gorgeous beach. We would love to return! Thanks, Maxine!
Thank you Kristen and Michael for this lovely review. I know I must have done "something right" when a you had a lingering feeling that you wanted to write a review and then you followed through. It is really never to late to do something that gracious. I am grateful that you let me share in facilitating your memorable family time at the beach. It was fun for me to help you with plans and make sure that you have everything you wish. I would love to have you return. anytime..
True luxury relaxation
My wife and I spent two weeks at Maxine's spectacular pent house Condo on Kiawah Island. Maxine insisted that we feel at home and that we did. We cooked most of our meals in her fully furnished kitchen. It was not because we didn't want to eat at the many outstanding restaurants she recommended in the area. Rather we opted not to leave the breathtaking ocean view while enjoying our intimate private dining. I for one find it difficult to completely relax on vacation without a fly rod in my hand, but here on Kiawah, at this beautifully accommodated condo, with the peace and tranquility of the Island, I felt relaxed and refreshed. We hope to return. Your friends, Bert and Yvonne
Dear Bert and Yvonne,
I have said so many times and I believe totally that I have the "most wonderful guests anyone could have". You both are yet another reason why I feel this way. Getting to meet you in person and spending quality time with you was just an extra bonus. You are wonderful guests and I would be privileged to have you again anytime. Thank you for your wonderful sentiments and taking the time to write a review. Please come back soon and bring your fishing rod!! Maxine
What a beautiful "little jewel" this condo turned out to be. The interior was very contemporary and was perfect for the four of us. The designer kept the "jewel" theme throughout with both color choices and finishes. The condo had everything needed to make for a great winter break. The kitchen was well stocked with all of the tools and conveniences and we needed nothing additional. The location was equally fabulous and offered an unobstructed view of the ocean. Waking up each morning to such an awesome view was a real bonus.
The owner was delightful, and one of the best parts of this trip was her very helpful list of tips and recommendations for restaurants along with her very candid reviews. They were "spot on." She also took the time to check in with us while we were there to make sure everything met our expectations.
We definitely look forward to returning.
Perfect place to stay on Kiawah Island
This condo is fabulous. We have rented over 30 apartments in Europe and the US and this is one of the nicest. It is exactly as pictured except the ocean view is even better. It is in a great location on the Island. It is well furnished and the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. The beds are really comfortable. The artwork really adds to the atmosphere. We were two couples and were very comfortable. I would highly recommend this condo and we will rent again when we return to Kiawah. Maxine is a joy to work with-very responsive. Her recommendations on restaurants were very helpful. It is also really nice to have an elevator to get your luggage, groceries, etc to the 6th floor. I can't say enough good things about this property. You will not regret staying here.
I shouldn't brag and I sound like a broken record when I say "I have the best guests on the planet". You and John were a wonderful couple to work with and share my home. I ordered up that perfect 80 degree weather just for you . I have a heart full of gratitude to know that I had a small part in your vacation being a memorable experience. Kiawah is a very special place!! Thank you for being so appreciative of my recommendations for restaurants and activities. You are welcome in any of my villas whenever you can get to Kiawah. Have a wonderful New Year filled with bountiful blessings and good health. COME BACK SOON.
This place is fabulous with every detail considered and provided! With it's spectacular oceanfront view and location steps away from the beach, some of my favorite things provided in this thoroughly updated and immaculately maintained condo: a welcome bottle of wine (really nice touch!), full barware, spices and plenty of cookware, an assortment of start-up food items like coffee and peanut butter (helpful for late arrivals), baggies and foil (so handy), purified drinking and hot water dispenser, a warming drawer, even a salad spinner, beach towels and chairs, top quality bath towels and linens, 3 way mirrors in bathrooms, and an abundance of storage and space which are often in short supply in vacation rentals. It's like being in your own home, only better! Plus the owner provides firsthand, trustworthy recommendations on restaurants and activities. I'll be back for sure!!!
It is heartwarming to know guests have enjoyed my wonderful villa as much as you and your family. My intent is to anticipate the needs of my guests and to meet them. When I hit the mark, I get so happily excited because I know you have had a fun, memorable and great experience on Kiawah. Thank you for your kind acknowledgement and recognition. You were a pleasure to have and work with. I am delighted you will be returning and I hope it will be soon. You are always welcome in my home!! Maxine
