About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Enjoy the tranquility and beauty on Kiawah Island located approximately 21 miles from historic Charleston, South Carolina. Kiawah Island is an exclusive private island community which offers over 10 miles of sandy beach, a multitude of family recreational activities, and access to five championship golf courses and two tennis villages. Kiawah Island is renowned for its natural beauty and preserved wildlife. It has also been listed on the Travel Channel's 10 best USA beaches. There is entertainment for the entire family. However this unit cannot guarantee access to Kiawah's community pools, check with Kiawah Resorts for more information.

You will feel at home in this newly renovated spacious three bedroom, three bath villa which sleeps 8. There is a king bed in the master bedroom, and the other two BR's have both a Queen and Twin. Each bedroom has its own full bathroom. Come enjoy the wonderful screened porch which overlooks the lagoon. You can read a book or simply enjoy the remarkable wildlife which is in constant motion around the lagoon. The beach is approximately 300 yards from the villa which is about a three minute walk.

We are available year round. During the summer, we require a Saturday to Saturday stay, but during the off season, we offer special long weekend rates. You may want to inquire about special winter rates.

About The Owner

We have owned villas on Kiawah Island for more nearly 20 years, and have rented to folks from all over the world.

The Owner purchased this villa in 1998

Why The Owner chose Charleston Area

Kiawah is an attractive vacation property because it offers a beautiful beach, great golf and tennis, one of a kind natural scenery, and is located close to Historic Charleston. Our villa however is not rented through The Kiawah Resort and therefore does not have access to their amenities (pools).

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is located in The Turtle Cove section of Kiawah and is very close to: The Beach, The Sancturary, Night Heron Park, and East Beach Village.

Our screened porch offers a wonderful view of a lagoon where birds, turtles, and alligators put on a daily show. However, I do not rent through Kiawah Resorts and therefore do not have guest access to any of their facilities (pools etc).

Excellent value.

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly

enjoyed our Thanksgiving stay in this unit. It was our second visit there. We found the beds comfortable, kitchen well stocked with cookware, excellent deck overlooking the lagoon and an easy walk or bike ride to the beach.

The living room furniture is a bit worn and the chairs not conducive to comfortable seating. And the unit is in need of a through cleaning as there is mildew on the shower curtains and grout of all bathrooms.

But well worth the cost.

Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

This condo was misrepresented and was not clean upon arrival. Our party had to clean the unit just to make it semi-livable. IT IS IN NEED OF A THOROUGH CLEANING.

The bathtubs/showers in all three bathrooms were in desperate need of updating. The shower curtains and bathtub surrounds were full of mold. The accent rugs and bedroom carpets were very dirty and the walls had holes in them. It looks like the condo has not been painted in a very long time. There were various items, including dirt, debris and underwear behind the guest room dresser. There was dust and dirt everywhere. We were charged a cleaning fee as part of the reservation and it appears there is little cleaning going on in this condo. If you plan to cook any meals, bring your own cookware as the pots and pans are old and very limited. In addition, there were dead and live cockroaches in the condo. I have photos of these issues, but I am unable to post them on VRBO. I would not recommend this condo to anyone.

Owner's Response: As a property owner for 20 years with hundreds of happy guests I hate to see this review. I take this seriously and will immediately conduct a deep cleaning and will replenish the kitchen ware. Thank you to my loyal guests who know the property and understand this is not representative of how I conduct business.

Loved this Place!! Perfect for our Family of 6.

  • 5 of 5

We had never visited Kiawah Island before and we are so happy to have found this property! The layout was perfect for us and it was beautifully decorated and very clean. The beds were extremely comfortable, and there was plenty of room for us and our four children. We all loved being on the screened-in porch overlooking the lagoon and seeing alligators-- from a safe place! The beach and the surrounding areas were gorgeous. We walked to the nearby restaurants that the owner recommended and they were great. We really couldn't say enough nice things about this villa and the owners. Hope to be back again next summer!!

Unhappy

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival to the condo, it was very hot inside and after checking the thermostat we found that there were no batteries in the system. We replaced the batteries, with ones we went to purchase, and turned the panel on. The screen indicated that the system was on, but we heard no noise from the unit. The next morning it was brutally hot and we emailed the owner. The entire day went by with no contact. The next morning, we texted the owner about the situation and indicated that the temperature inside was hotter than the temperature outside and continued to rise. We took the matter into our own hands and contacted the installer. He gave us some tips to try and get the system working and finally it kicked on. The owner finally contacted us and we told him that we took care of it ourselves.

One of the bedroom fans was so loud and off balance that it was hard for the occupants to sleep, but they needed it on, due to the lack of air the first couple of days.

Also upon arrival, we found that the dishes, glassware, utensils, and cookware were all put away dirty, some of them with a lot of food caked on. We had to wash everything, by hand, before we could use anything.

Owner's Response: The experience noted in this review by "Anonomus" is unlike any I have seen in 20 years of owning the villa. This villa is an outstanding value for families looking to experience Kiawah. Please refer to the other 20 + posts to understand why our ranking was nearly perfect until this unfortunate post. Thanks!

Just Enough

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the property met our needs well. Everything we needed was available. The beach was an easy 10 minute walk away. On a bike, much faster. We enjoyed the screened in porch on rainy days. I'm rating the unit with 3 stars because it does need a deep clean.(i.e. Dust in corners, mildewed shower curtain, crumbs in kitchen drawers.) This didn't bother us too much as I spot cleaned a little when we arrived. The island itself is beautiful. We will definitely go back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and I'm disappointed by the rating. There are some things in a rental we can control and some we just cannot. If guests put back dirty utensils that's unfortunate but impossible for an owner to manage. The distance to the beach on the other hand has not changed since we bought the villa 20 years ago and it's 5 minutes...or as close as it gets in Turtle Cove. Thanks
