Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Our Nature Retreat in Seabrook Island's coveted Creek Watch Villas boasts a spectacular view of a tidal marsh, with osprey, green heron, blue heron, king fishers and deer regularly making an appearance. Seabrook has more species of birds than any other area in South Carolina. One can access the marshes easily from the boat landing (kayaks and canoes are welcome!). There is a crabbing dock on premises as well for a unique catch-and-eat dining experience. Families of all ages will enjoy bike rides on the beach, daily dolphin sightings just feet from the shoreline, fishing and crabbing in the ocean, lagoons and marshes and unique seashell collecting.

This exclusive gated community also offers a shared pool just steps away from your villa, a full-sized equestrian center that provides both trail and beach rides and a nearby marina for boat rentals. Affordable and luxurious, this retreat has something for everyone!

Seabrook Island is a private resort located 23 miles south of famous (historic) Charleston. Seabrook’s 2200 acres of maritime forest provide peaceful seclusion and wondrous nature viewing, including over 80 species of birds, varied wildlife and endless majestic oaks.

The Island’s two and a half miles of pristine beaches are uncrowded and easily accessible, with boardwalk paths and ample parking. The islands 25 mile speed limit and rental services provide a safe, fun biking, rollerblading and fitness experience.

The equestrian center offers everything from pony rides to advanced trail rides to the beach. Nature cruises, kayaking, boat rentals and dolphins tours are available at the adjacent Bohicket Marina, which also has several restaurant selections.

There is a medical facility and bank, as well as a wide range of exclusive shopping, at Fresh Fields Village less than a mile from the gate. All of these activities and peaceful seclusion make it hard to leave. No Smoking, Please!

About Barry

Barry and Lisa are locals to the Charleston area and currently live on Seabrook. This villa was our retreat with our children to enjoy the beach and nature. We loved it so much we bought a house and have moved out her full time!

Barry purchased this villa in 2003

Why Barry chose Charleston Area

We purchased this villa because Seabrook Island exemplifies the true treasures of the Lowcountry and has a very green, natural ethic. It is also located near the center of the island with easy access to all areas. We love the island and we are sure you will, too.

What makes this villa unique

We love the secluded beach and easy bike rides around the island. Our favorite activities are kayaking up Cap'n Sam's Creek to the ocean and watching the dolphins at Kiawah River inlet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There is very little that I don't like about Seabrook Island. I am a runner and I love running around the entire island, and also love going to Bohicket, the beach and into Charleston. With the exception of a few years I have been coming to Seabrook for vacation since the late 1980s. I am originally from NY and had seen an ad years ago in the NY Times travel section. I immediately fell in love with the private, quiet, noncommercial atmosphere and so have continued to come back. It is the perfect getaway from a too hectic life. Thanks again!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The unit was immaculate and very well-stocked , The only heads up is if you have small children which we did not, there is a spiral staircase which I'd be difficult with little ones to use

Seabrook never fails to amaze

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Nature Retreat was extremely relaxing and peaceful. We saw numerous species of birds, a family of deer, and colorful lizards from the screened in porch overlooking the marsh.

The pool was a great break from the beach in the late afternoons and also very relaxing. Our favorite area was the crab dock. We had sunset picnics on the lookout deck several evenings.

I would definitely recommend the Nature Retreat. We did wish there were bikes available, though, as was indicated in the description??
