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.

You will feel at home in this newly renovated (2017) 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.

This is a direct to owner rental and therefore does not have access to Kiawah resort pools.

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 20 years, and have rented to folks from all over the world.

The Owner purchased this villa in 1998

Why The Owner chose East Beach

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).

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the island, and location, near Charleston. The Villa was roomy and had nice decor.

"Pet friendly" attracted us. We enjoyed the lagoon and walking to the beach. Ned and Mary were helpful and answered all questions promptly! Thank you for a great week.

Great views from the deck. Love how the living room has double sliding glass doors to the deck.

  • 4 of 5

Great location, just a short walk to the beautiful beach. Very cute place, well decorated. Had everything we needed. Even had little extras like mini shampoos and soaps. Loved sitting out on the screened in deck to watch the birds in the water. Also loved the sliding glass doors allowing you to open up the whole wall to the deck. Only real bad thing, The master bedroom bedspread needs a good cleaning. It wasn't warm enough during our stay to rent bikes, but that's ok because we had to stop our car to let a huge gator cross the road as we tried to drive back from the store. Drove to little village shopping center, cute but expensive.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Nice central location on the island. Pretty walk to the beach. Bathrooms are nicely updated. The unit is pet friendly so some of the furnishings are a little worn, but that is to be expected. Nice view of lagoon and nice screened in porch overlooking the lagoon. Great long weekend stay!

Wonderful Christmas!

  • 4 of 5

Overall my family and I had a very enjoyable Christmas at this villa! The surroundings on Kiawah Island are absolutely amazing! The general store and Freshfields shoppes were super convenient for last minute needs. The villa itself was very well appointed on the island. My mother in law and I both loved how the villa had been updated! Our family had 5 adults and 2 kids and we all had plenty of space in our sleeping arrangements. The lagoon view from the living/dining room and master bedroom are stunning. I would have given 5 stars but the villa wasn’t as clean as we would have preferred. Our family will definitely be back to Kiawah Island in the future!
