About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 7)

Our villa is located in the Fairway Oaks building closest to the beach -- a short 3-minute walk to a pristine, 10-mile long beach voted by the Travel Channel as one of America's top 10. All 3 bedrooms are located on the first floor (no hauling suitcases up the stairs), with the living area on the upper floor. The master bedroom and queen bedroom each have their own sink and vanity area while sharing a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The twin-bedded room has its own bath, which can also be entered from the hallway. All beds have new mattresses which were purchased in 2015 and 2016. All bedrooms have large closets, as well as their own tvs with cable and dvd player or vcr. Laundry faciilities are also located on the lower floor.

On the upper floor you will find a fully-equipped kitchen, lovely dining room, and a comfortable living room with wall-mounted large flat-screen tv, dvd player, and stereo. A twin-sized sofa bed is in the living room to accomodate a 7th person. The closet just outside the powder room contains a large collection of games, puzzles, videos, and books for your enjoyment. Relax on the deck with your loved ones, as you watch birds, deer, and squirrels in the surrounding woods.

We are a short walk to West Beach Tennis Center and Cougar Point Golf Course. Take a relaxing stroll to the Straw Market for shopping, dining, or a delicious ice cream after dinner. Or hop in the car for a 5-minute drive to Freshfields Village or Bohicket Marina for additional shopping and dining options. Better yet, hop on your bike and take the bike path all the way to Freshfields! A half-hour drive takes you into Charleston with its shopping, dining, antiquing, and historical sights. Or visit one of the nearby plantations for a trip back in time. You will make memories on this vacation to last a lifetime!

Please note that we only rent privately and not through the Kiawah Island Resort. Therefore, our guests do not have access to a pool, but all other Resort amenities are available (golf, tennis, Kamp Kiawah, nature programs, etc.).

Boardwalk Update: Many of the boardwalks on Kiawah were damaged by Hurricane Matthew last fall. I want to assure all who may be interested in renting our property that the boardwalk normally used by our renters is undergoing repair and should be open by the middle of February.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Our family has been visiting Kiawah Island since 1987. After vacationing in Florida in 1989, we have returned every year since to the peaceful oasis of Kiawah for our family time together. We realized our dream of purchasing property on Kiawah in 1998. Our villa has been a gathering place for our family and friends where many wonderful memories have been made. One of my favorite things to do at Kiawah is the Turtle Patrol! Endangered loggerhead turtles lay nests on Kiawah from May-August,and the baby turtles hatch from July-October. For the last 10 years, I have volunteered with the Kiawah Island Turtle Patrol, which locates, records data, and protects the nests and hatchlings in conjunction with the S.C. Department of Natural Resources. I am happy to provide our guests with information about the Turtle Patrol and any nests that might be hatching during their visit. This gives you the chance to witness a nest evaluation where you will learn so much about the loggerheads and if you're very lucky, maybe even see a baby turtle! If you're awake at dawn some morning, come down to the beach and look for the Turtle Patrollers; we love to educate visitors about our turtles!

Why the Owner Chose West Beach Village, Kiawah Island, SC, USA:
After vacationing at Kiawah for 10 years, we knew there was no other place we wanted to be. We love to walk the beach, search for shells, bike the over 30 miles of bike baths, and view wildlife (like the strand-feeding dolphins in Captain Sam's Inlet, or the bobcat we recently saw in our parking lot). As history buffs, there is no better place for us than Charleston and the surrounding Low Country! We are at peace here like no other place we have ever been. We feel so lucky to have found this villa, which was the perfect size for our family, and so close to the beach!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our location on Kiawah Island is so convenient! Being in West Beach, we are just a short drive to Freshfields for shopping or Bohicket Marina for taking in the breathtaking sunsets. Enjoy a leisurely stroll to the Straw Market to pick up a newspaper or an ice cream cone. Best of all, you're at the beach after an easy, 3-minute walk! No need to load up your car with beach toys -- in the downstairs closet, you will find a tote full of toys, an umbrella, boogie boards and skimboards! I am a member of the Kiawah Island Turtle Patrol, and I am happy to provide our guests with information about the loggerhead turtles and nesting activity during the summer. We provide our guests with hand soap, dishwashing detergent, linens and towels (but please bring your own beach towels). We have a large selection of books for your reading enjoyment. Should the rare rainy day occur, enjoy your family time with the available games, puzzles, or videos. Our home is your home while you are here!
