About Mary Cardello

Hank and Mary live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. We can't wait to retire at Seabrook for good!

Mary Cardello purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mary Cardello chose Seabrook Island

On the way to Seabrook, the minute you exit Charleston and set out on a road framed by 100 year old oak trees draped in curtains of Spanish moss, it feels like you're driving through to a secluded paradise. And that's exactly what Seabrook is: beautiful, quiet island with clean, private beaches where wildlife abounds. It is impossible to go to Seabrook and not let all your worries be checked at the gate.

What makes this villa unique

One of the best parts of our condo are the sunsets. Living on the East Coast, it's rare you get a chance to watch the sunset over the water but that's exactly what you can enjoy from our deck. It is also directly on the beach so put on a bathing suit, grab a towel, walk out the deck and you are on the beach. No driving and finding parking. No hiking with coolers and beach chairs for miles. Just pure unadulterated ease and relaxation. We are so close to the beach, in fact, that you need not even leave your deck to watch the dolphins, pelicans and sea turtles that are sure to entertain you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mary and Hank,

We had the pleasure of staying at your beautiful beach home for the first time Nov. 30 - Dec. 2 . We had a wonderful time ! The weather was perfect. The views were fantastic. We spent most of the day on the deck watching the dolphins and pelicans. We love Seabrook and have been visiting there for over 25 years. We hope we have the opportunity to stay in your unit again during future visits.

Merry Christmas and May God richly bless you both in the coming year.

Relaxing, dog friendly get-away

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st trip to Seabrook. We would definitely go back and we would choose to stay at this condo again. It is convenient to golf, shopping and restaurants. But, also gives you a feeling of privacy. Went for many walks along the beach and only ever ran into a handful of very friendly people and dogs along the way. The view from the condo/patio is amazing and often features Pelicans and dolphins - bring your camera/binoculars. The owners were easy to reach and extremely responsive to a couple of minor issues we had during our stay. Thanks Mary and Hank

Owner's Response: V, thank you so much for working with us while Comcast installed an Xfinity modem. Sometimes signals at the beach can vary so this added insurance proved to be just what was needed. So glad you enjoyed your winter vacation at 1314 Pelican Watch Villas. Hope to see you back soon!

Great family experience

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. Mary and Hank have a lovely place that is well-maintained and closer to the water than even the pictures make it appear. As noted with other reviews, Mary and Hank were very communicative and helpful before and during the stay, proactively connecting with us to ensure our stay was smooth. Besides the unit, the remainder of the Seabrook Island facilities were impeccable. We used the pickle ball courts, indoor and outdoor pools, and ate a nice meal at Bohicket's Lounge. With it being March, we unfortunately had some hit-and-miss days with weather, but even on cold weather days there was plenty for our kids to do with the indoor pool, beach adventures, and Charleston was an easy drive. The views from the condo and deck are wonderful. We would not hesitate to stay with Mary and Hank the next time we visit the Charleston area.

Owner's Response: So glad you had an awesome time. The "pickle ball" is a new one for us! People just love it! Fabulous that the kids loved the Olympic sized "heated" indoor swimming pool and the library located in the same building! Hope to see you next year!

Seabrook Treasure

Love the brightness and location of this Pelican Watch Villa. Relaxing, sunny and easy access to the beach. Pet friendly which is wonderful for people who want their dog to enjoy the sun and surf as well. Thank you to the owners for sharing this beautiful Seabrook Treasure.

Best place at Seabrook Island

  • 5 of 5

This was my 8th time coming to Seabrook and my 6th coming to the Cardellos unit. What can I say other than its the best place to stay. They are constantly making improvements so the place is better every year. The way the unit is positioned you have the best view of the ocean. The way Seabrook is positioned, you get gorgeous sunsets- which is unusual for the east coast. The unit is impeccably clean with beautiful furnishings and decor. It's also a pet friendly place as well as a very pet friendly island, so your dogs will have met many canine friends on the beach by the end of the week. My favorite parts are the frequent dolphin sightings, the sunsets, and being able to have my dogs at such a nice place.

Mary and Hank thanks for another perfect week, hope to be back next year!

Owner's Response: Rachel, Thank you for the thoughtful prose as it sums up everything beautiful about Seabrook Island, SC. Your description might just be the ticket for someone to allow themselves a little vacation time to regroup before getting back to their hectic day-to-day duties. We are blessed to have you as our generous guest. Please know you are always welcome anytime!

There is plenty to do and see in Seabrook and nearby Charleston. Beaches, shopping, restaurants and sight seeing. But the condo views cannot be beat. Standing in the living room you feel as if you are on a ship with the two enormous windows. And everything in the condo makes your stay more than comfortable. Everything you need is here. Plus two big flatscreen TV’s to enjoy at the end of a busy day! We will be back!
