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 2015 by a professional interior designer, our villa features 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 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 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, 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 Kiawah Island

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.

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!

What a wonderful get-away. Relaxed and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth trip to Kiawah Island and this time we stayed the whole month. This villa is comfortable, well appointed, equipped, and decorated. The screened-in porch is a haven with nice furniture and a view of the lagoon that just does not get old. A great place for active folks with the beach a short walk away or for people (like us) that were just looking for some quiet downtime. Ashley was a complete joy to work with. We happen to arrive just a few days ahead of Hurricane Matthew and had to flee inland. Ashley's sole concern was for our well-being. If you have not been here before, you gotta come! Great golfing, private beach, a shopping area (Freshfields) with a super grocery store, restaurants, a wine bar, bookstore, boutiques, and other shops. Charleston is about 40 minutes away. We just cannot say enough nice things about Kiawah Island, this lovely villa, and Ashley. We are looking forward to a return visit soon. Lloyd and Liz - Houston, Texas
