Space 1,030 sq. ft.
Property type villa

About the property

Two Bedrooms, Two Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Vacation well in our totally refurbished Turtle Cove villa as you enjoy Kiawah’s world-renowned golf courses and 10+ miles of pristine low-country beaches. Our East Beach location offers the ideal launching point for island explorations and is just a short, scenic walk to the footbridge to the beach. The villa is situated near the Turtle Point Golf Course, the Roy Barth Tennis Center, The Market at Town Center, Night Heron Park, and the five-star Sanctuary Hotel and Spa.

Guests will enjoy an abundance of natural light in each room and gorgeous lagoon views where you will find alligators, turtles, egrets, heron, pelicans, families of ducks, and even the occasional bald eagle. Totally re-designed in 2018 by a professional interior designer, our villa features new hardwood floors, new furniture, and contemporary updates throughout--a modern and tasteful mix of form and function.

Our kitchen has been recently renovated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances and is stocked with all the items necessary for casual as well as fine dining. You will enjoy the view of the sunset over the lagoon while having dinner on either the screened porch or in the dining room.

Our living room has been furnished with unique pieces from Kiawah's GDC Home. A luxurious sleeper sofa promises comfort while a lending library is available for good beach reads. And, of course, we have cable TV, a secure WIFI connection, and local telephone service.

Our villa’s master suite was designed with relaxation in mind. Furnished with a king-sized bed, flat-screen TV, and private en suite bath with double sinks, granite countertops, and a large, beautiful frameless glassed-in shower with custom river rock floor, you'll have views of the lagoon and private access to the screened porch.

The generously-sized second bedroom with en suite bathroom offers two twin beds and a flat-screen TV. This room gets incredible morning light and, like the master bedroom, features an iHome docking clock radio and extra pillows and blankets to maximize your comfort.

*Our villa includes parking, linens and towels, washer and dryer, cable television, air conditioning/heat, a supply of paper products and detergents, beach chairs, a beach cooler, board games, local telephone service, WIFI, and 24-hour security in a gated community just 35 minutes from historic downtown Charleston.

More than anything, we want you to enjoy the area as much as we do! Please feel free to make contact to inquire about our villa, historic Charleston, or Kiawah Island. We’d love to hear from you!

About Ashley Harward

We are a family of five, currently residing in a small Pennsylvania college town, where Brian is a professor and Ashley maintains a private psychotherapy practice. We met at University of Georgia and married in Ashley's hometown, Savannah, GA, before moving to Washington, DC, St. Louis, MO, and now Pennsylvania. We have been visiting Kiawah since we became a family, where Brian's family has vacationed for the past 30 years from their home in Maine. We love to golf, play tennis, explore the island on bikes, and enjoy spending time with our kids on the beach. We welcome you to our home!

Ashley Harward purchased this villa in 2015

Why Ashley Harward chose East Beach

Brian's family has owned two homes on Kiawah since 1988. Since then, he has been coming as often as possible to enjoy the relatively undisturbed beauty of the island. We've discovered Kiawah in new ways since having kids and cherish our opportunities to build our memories here, together.

We LOVED our time in Kiawah and the villa was perfect! So comfortable, well appointed and more equipped than other VRBO rentals. Bonus...super comfy beds! We cooked several nights and had everything we needed. As a family with active boys, the location is perfect! Quick bike/walk to the beach, Night Heron Park, the Sanctuary. The Lagoon provided lots of entertainment for our 5 year old too! Deer, Alligators and "jumping fish"!

Ashley and family go the extra mile to make sure you will enjoy your stay. I would highly recommend it for friends and family.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at our Turtle Cove villa. It has been 15 years since we have been back to Kiawah and we throughly enjoyed our stay! So much has changed yet the tranquility that the island is known for was what we came to enjoy and it delivered. Our villa was very charming, nice and neat and our boys quickly made themselves at home. I loved that we had board games to play and books to read. I started one book and am sad that I left without finishing it but, we were able to spend so much time on the beach and bike riding that it will have to wait until next time;) Speaking of the beach, it is a short walk that even our five year old didn't mind. We took the little bridge over and did see an alligator, boys thought that was awesome, and other birds and animals everyday. By the way, thanks for having chairs available for us to use! We are looking forward to planning our next Kiawah Island vacation soon. Thanks again Ashley for having a comfortable villa with all the essentials of home.

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Being on the lagoon was a delightful surprise! Waking up to a variety of birds, herons, ibis and alligators was a great way to start the day. A short walk or bike ride to the beach only to see more creatures along the way was fantastic. The villa is modern with lovely decor and comfy beds. We'll be back!
