About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Kiawah Island is one of the most upscale vacation destinations in the country (per Conde Nast). Our villa is an upgraded one bedroom unit (in a private, gated island community) that complies with the requirements of being considered a premier tier rental, comparing with The Sanctuary Hotel standards. We have spent a lot of time ensuring our guests have all the luxuries of home.

While the unit is not beachfront (about a 75 yard walk to the beach), there is nothing separating the villa other than vegetation and sand dunes from the beach.

Please visit the links and video for a 360 degree look at our villa!

The Master Bedroom has a King size bed and a flat screen TV. There is a pull out sofa with a queen mattress in the living room and a flat screen HD TV.

The villa is a part of the Kiawah Island Resort program which means you will be treated as a guest of the resort giving you access to the Night Heron Pool and playground (which is across the street) as well as the Tennis Club Pool. Your reservation also gives you preferred access for reservations to the resort restaurants including The Ocean Room and Jasmine Porch located in The Sanctuary Hotel as well as the Spa at The Sanctuary.

After a day at the beach, golf course, tennis court, pool, walking paths, bike, our villa is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

The Night Heron Park (pool), Town Center, East Beach Tennis Club, and Sanctuary Hotel, are all within walking/biking distance. The villa is centrally located to all the golf courses.

Smoking is not permitted in the villa or on the screened porch and NO grills permitted in the villa complex due to wood construction.

We would be honored if you would consider a stay in our beautiful vacation home on Kiawah Island.

Why Gary chose Charleston Area

In 2004, my job required me to move away from our home in Charleston. We wanted to have a Charleston connection, and invested in this property on Kiawah Island. While our unit is rented most of the time, we try to visit and experience the wonderful Kiawah/Charleston experience as often as possible.

What makes this condo unique

4232 Mariner's Watch is a quiet, peaceful location just feet away from the beach. There is no need to leave the confines of Kiawah once you are there: Golf, tennis, biking, beach, pool, fabulous restaurants, and wildlife will keep you entertained during your stay.

Beach Vacation at it's finest!!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. This beautiful condo is situated right in the middle of everything you could want. We were so lucky to be so close to the amazing beach and the pools, closest pool is the one that is open the latest, a real plus!! We rented bikes and rode all through the resort and on the beach, saw so much wildlife like dolphins, deer, bob cats, loggerhead turtles, starfish, and sand dollars. The bike trails are everywhere, no shortage of where to go!!!! The condo itself had everything we needed, very comfortable, sea breezes on the back screened in porch were wonderful, it was very nicely kept. The owner, Gary was very easy to contact before our trip and answered all our questions. Can't wait to stay here again, definitely.

Excellent condo by the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first visit to Kiawah Island and I had a great time! This condo was a great place to stay. It was extremely close to the beach and a short walk to the other amenities. It had everything we needed and was well cared for. It was so nice that I would definitely come back again and just stay inside the whole time!

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I had to write and say how pleased I was with my experience.

I received my check in instructions and initial guard pass from owner Gary well in advance of my rental date. They were perfect! The condo is exactly as advertised - within a 90 second walk to the beach, and 5 minutes to the Night Heron Pool. We could hear the ocean at high tide when sitting on the screened-in porch. The condo is decorated very nicely, with all the necessities needed - especially in the kitchen.

This villa has all amenities associated with Kiawah Island Resort. We even took the shuttle once out to the Ryder Cup lounge and to see the Ocean Course Clubhouse. The condo is also within walking distance of the Sanctuary Hotel.

We rented bikes and they were delivered and picked up right from the villa.

For a nice, relaxing getaway with all of the amenities of Kiawah Island Resort, this is the place to rent.

Wonderful Kiawah visit!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a too short two day stay in this beautiful, warm, cozy Mariner's Watch home. After 34 years of coming to Kiawah each year and staying in many various accommodations all over the island, we were so pleased with this home for the two of us. The kitchen was the most amply equipped home we have stayed in with everything you would need and then some. The upgrades and renovations to the unit have been very tastefully done with quality workmanship. The location was perfect - steps from the beach and a short stroll to the pool. We were thrilled that we had the resort amenities, which are so difficult to find these days on the island. Overall, a much too short stay which left us feeling we can't wait to return to this home again!!

Great Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was extremely close to the beach. We could hear the waves from the outdoor back enclosed patio. There is a path that leads right onto the beach where you can even bring the bikes on. We rented bikes and biked everywhere on the island. Loved all the bike trails from one end of the island to the next. We even biked to each end of the beach. Kiawah Island is a must go to as a couple getaway or with the family and renting bikes is a definite! This condo was clean and convenient to everything. It was very comfortable and high end. Would definitely stay here again!

We just state a short weekend but it was perfect! It was in the perfect location and was definitely the best priced condo we saw! We loved that it was quiet and secluded but yet so close to the beach! We will definitely be staying here again!
