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 second 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! I even have a YouTube video of the outside of the condo.

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. You also have access to shuttle service around the resort.

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.

Pets are also not permitted.

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

Why Gary chose Kiawah Island

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 villa is rented most of the time, we try to visit and experience the wonderful Kiawah/Charleston experience as often as possible.

What makes this Villa 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. The villa is managed through Kiawah Island Resort, which gives you access to many of the resorts amenities. Not all properties have this benefit. If you are interested, I have a 360 video of inside of the villa, as well as a YouTube video of the outside and beach.

While not beachfront, there is just a few feet of brush and dunes between villa and beach - about a 90 second walk. Villa also has a safe in the bedroom closet.

                                                      Very comfortable condo & great location.

                                                      Doug R.

                                                      We absolutely loved our 2-day stay in Kiawa. The condo was perfect for the two of us & the location incredibly convenient. We biked, walked the beach, rented beach chairs & hung out at the beach . I even played 9 holes of disc golf at Night Heron Park. At night we walked to the Sanctuary for an amazing dinner. If you go to Jasmine’s Porch, ask for Spencer. Two improvement opportunities: install shower doors for the shower (we had curtains) and fix the leak in the dishwasher. Otherwise, everything was great!

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Thank you so much for your review. We are thrilled that you found our villa well-located to the beach, the Night Heron Park and The Sanctuary Hotel. We also love Jasmine's Porch. May I recommend a Sunday Brunch during your next Kiawah visit.

                                                      First, thanks for alerting me to a dishwasher leak. I have alerted the resort to checked that out today.

                                                      Also, your review surprised me about the shower as we do have beautiful glass doors. I called the resort and I was informed a prior guest (approximately 3 weeks ago), possibly leaned too hard on the doors and knocked them out and bent the frame just enough to cause a needed repair. We are researching the best approach, but in the meantime the resort set up the resort-level shower curtains as a temporary measure. We are sorry for any inconvenience and hope to have it repaired very soon.

                                                      Thank you again for choosing our villa for your Kiawah getaway.

                                                      Nice Vacation Property

                                                      Melissa M.

                                                      This is a nice condo close to the beach. We would definitely return to this property. I knocked off a star because the pillows were hard and uncomfortable.

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Thank you so much for your review! I am so sorry the pillows were not to your liking.

                                                      There are several pillow options in the bedroom closet. We know to have these as my spouse likes pillows soft and I like them hard. I will make sure to notify future guests that other options were available. Please come back and I promise to offer you a discount on a future stay for your inconvenience.

                                                      Great Location

                                                      Louann B.

                                                      Described accurately. Very close to the beach and a good value.

                                                      Great getaway

                                                      brian l.

                                                      Well equipped condo close to beach access. Enjoyed our stay immensely.

                                                      Quite comfortable. Location great for beach and biking. Unit equipped with everything . Had great

                                                      Suzanne F.

                                                      Weather was great. This unit had one of few beach ramps rebuilt after hurricane. We bikes the entire island and beach. Had a most enjoyable weekend. This has got to be one of the best beaches anywhere.

                                                      Absolutely Perfect!!

                                                      Vivienne P.

                                                      We had the most lovely stay. Gary was so easy to work with in every way, so helpful and quick with all of his emails. When we elected to extend our stay by one day, it all flowed perfectly.

                                                      Just my husband and me on this trip -- and the condo was the exact size we needed. Such a lovely spot. We really are beach-goers and the beach was only a minute away. At the same time, we fell in love with the pool, only a 5-minute walk. We scheduled golf and then ended up cancelling as the weather was so lovely!

                                                      All in all, we cannot wait to return!

A "4th occupant" fee will be charged (not included in your quote) separately at $75 per day for ages 12 months and above. Please be honest about the number of occupants as my full-time resident neighbors keep tabs on this and will report a violation to Kiawah security. A credit card will be taken at the Kiawah Resort check in for charges other than nightly room charges (restaurant charges, golf charges, etc..) and for any damages that may occur during the stay. A 5 day minimum stay is required for the time period around 4th of July. Cancellation policy: If a reservation is canceled 60 days prior to the check in date, there is a 100% refund. Less than 60 days there is a 50% cancellation fee. The cleaning fee is returned at 100%. However, if I rent for the time period canceled, I will refund the cancellation fee for those days re-rented.
