Dog-Friendly Waterfront Condo with Furnished Deck & Beach Views

This lovely Mariner's Watch oceanfront villa is located on the second floor with vaulted ceilings in the living area. Guests will be in paradise with the beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean that can be seen from the deck, sun porch, and nearly every room. With recently updated furnishing and beachy decor, there will be no reason to compromise on your favorite comforts of home. After a long day on the beach, the whole family can gather at the dining table and enjoy a homecooked meal prepared in the full kitchen. Watch the sunset from the deck and feel the breeze blow through your hair before heading in for a movie night on the flatscreen TV! Plus, the family dog can come along as well for a small nightly pet fee.

What's nearby:
With sugar-white sand right outside your back door, there will be no delay in getting those much-anticipated sandy toes and sun-kissed skin! Pack a picnic and make a day of reading as the waves sparkle in the sun. When you want a break from the beach, book a tee time at one of the local golf courses or play a few sets of tennis on the shared courts nearby! If you don't feel like cooking, Town Center Market is a short walk away offering delicious American cuisine.

Had a great time location is great and view of ocean from deck is awesome. 4 star because unit is in need of some repairs but the cleaning people said that was getting ready to happen. Overall very happy with rental. Would recommend.
Wallace M. Sep 2022
Unit was more than ample--ocean view and proximity to beach fantastic.
Karen C. Jul 2022
Great ocean views and breeze. Excellent furnished balcony. Lovely spacious interior.
jennifer s. Jul 2022
Great location, beautiful ocean views. Spacious unit with open floor plan, everything we needed for our family of 4 and family dog
Brenda C. Jun 2022
We stayed here multiple times and it's our favorite. The dogs just love the ocean and beach but are happy to rest inside with air conditioning. We've NEVER had any issues renting this unit.
Rhonda K. May 2022
We just returned from a lovely stay at Mariner's Watch. This rental had everything! The best part was the incredible view! easy access to a clean and private beach. Well-stocked kitchen and plenty of room for my family. If you are thinking of renting this not hesitate! worth every penny!
Rodney O. Apr 2022
Wonderful unit, well equipped and beautiful location. Also, cleaned immaculately.
Mary N. Mar 2022
View is wonderful. Unit clean and Vacasa very attentive. Needs a lot of interior work. Evidently work to be done on unit April 2022. Would definitely stay again after work completed. Not great for elderly or very young children - LOTS of exterior steps to navigate. Fun place to take your pups with you.
Susan H. Mar 2022
Good things-We found this unit to be very comfortable and the view is absolutely wonderful! Everything was very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed (except Saran wrap or foil- no biggie). There is easy access to the beach. There is a small general store about 1 mile away and a Harris Teeter (that delivers via Shipt about 3 miles away). The Alligator bike place will deliver bikes to your door and pick them up when you want- all arranged online. There are tons of bike trails and riding on the beach is permitted.
Loved the dog bowls and the painting of dogs on the wall above the bowls.

Not-so-good things-The unit is on the 2nd floor but because the first floor is high, it feels like the 3rd floor so if you don’t like stairs, it will be a problem.
There was definitely some wear and tear, like peeling paint. The bathrooms could use updating and the master bath had a strange smell. The key took a lot of jiggling to work.
If you have an EV, good luck. There is no where to plug one in and no public charging stations on Kiawah Island. We had to drive 25 minutes, park our car to charge it overnight, take an Uber back to the rental and take another Uber to our car the next day. There are only 2 fast chargers in all of Charleston.
We could not find any restaurants that deliver food.
We loved this place anyway and would stay again (and maybe bring a different car).
Mark H. Mar 2022
We stayed for 3 weeks and really enjoyed the condo. Very dog friendly and clean. The views can't be beat! We have booked again for next year. The kitchen is well stocked and the furniture is adequate--could be a little more comfortable, but other than that, we loved our time here.
NOLA W. Jan 2022
The views were amazing. Kitchen was perfect with plenty of dishes, utensils, pots and pans and an empty pantry for storage. There was an extra microwave on the counter, which took up space and defunct one above the stove, which meant we had no light or vent for the stovetop.
Layout was good with plenty of room for spreading out. Really enjoyed the sunroom for our yoga sessions. Back porch was nice to hang out on when not at the beach. Loved that they put out dog bowls (one with water!) for our pups. Walkways to the beach were very convenient. Condo was clean but a bit worn as there was peeling paint in several areas. Really wanted to open a window facing the ocean, but the handles were removed. The master bath could really use a sky light as it's a long walk to light switch and the toilet. Wish we could have figured out how to turn off the front porch light as it disturbed the front bedroom sleeper. Never found the switch and the window shade was not adequate to block the light. Beds weren't bad, but not a fan of memory foam.
All in all a nice space with plenty of natural light in the rooms facing the ocean.
Thank you for a lovely stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed the beautiful views from this home. We appreciate your suggestions and will work diligently to address your concerns appropriately for future guests. We hope we have the opportunity to impress you in the future.
James N. Jan 2022
Fantastic rental in a great location. Easy to relax while overlooking the ocean. Very responsive to any questions.
Christine P. Nov 2021
Great house for family get away. Didn't want for anything except maybe a smart tv. Would definitely recommend and have already booked for next year.
Thomas H. Oct 2021
The view is unbelievable.
Judy K. Aug 2021
We had a great time
Karen C. Jul 2021
Great oceanfront location. There is some wear and tear on the cabinetry. The master bath could be improved by putting in a large walk-in shower and taking out the tub. Outside furniture needs to be tightened up. Screws are loose.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Karen. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the location and views of the home. We have shared your comments with the local manager who will work to address each of these issues promptly. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again soon!
Paul D. May 2021
Beautiful view. Great location on Kiawah. Good layout to the home. Kitchen has everything you need, although they could use a better coffee maker. Unfortunately, there was no plastic wrap, tinfoil, etc. so bring your own. The porch railing is detaching from the porch and looks in need of serious repair. We loved sitting on the porch. The bedroom layout is great. Would definitely rent again.
Manager response:
Hi, Paul! The coffee maker has been replaced, and we are repairing the deck railing. Thank you for your helpful feedback!
Rodney O. Apr 2021
The view and accommodations are so comfortable and well equipped. Thanks for letting us bring our fur child too.
James N. Dec 2020
The ocean views from the property are second to none and provided amazing views from sunrise to sunset. The sunroom provides a great place to start the day with a cup of coffee and a relaxing spot to end the day with a book. Kitchen was appropriately stocked for all our needs. Bedrooms were comfortable for the entire family and layout provided for good separation between master room and other bedrooms. Easy access to the beach and location on Kiawah was central to the various golf courses.
Heather C. Dec 2020
Beautiful home with amazing views! It was the perfect getaway.
Shireen M. Dec 2020
Beautiful view! Perfectly distanced - walking distance to the park, playground, and beach. Would definitely stay here again!
Proj K. Nov 2020
Amazing views. Spacious and well kept. Had a wonderful time.
Rodney O. Nov 2020
We could not have asked for a better cleaned, located or maintained property. Thanks for a wonderful week.
Michelle R. Oct 2020
We love kiawah island. This is our second time staying in this condo. They got new bar stools and a new couch which is no longer a sleeper sofa. It was nice and clean! The condo isn’t perfect we did have couple issues but it didn’t ruin our stay. One was light bulbs were burnt out in a couple rooms. Showers drain slowly need to unclog. The main issue I hope they fix is the screens to outside need fixed!!! The one in the sunroom has a big tear and the main screen door doesn’t seal properly and it’s hard to open and shut And if you close it wrong it leaves an open gap on the other side. If you know anything about kiawah you know you need a good seal on the doors to keep bugs out. Well we had a couple creep in. We called Vacasa and they had someone come out that day to spray for bugs. I also think it’s due for a fresh coat of paint. All and all it was great and we booked the condo again for next year.
Karen C. Jun 2020
Absolutely perfect. Beautiful and comfortable furnishings accompanied by an amazing location with incomparable ocean views. Well equipped and updated. We will be back.
Charles D. Mar 2020
Beautiful view. Great location. Everything we needed. Will definitely stay again.
romy c. Mar 2020
Loved the open living space, incredible views, great deck.
Charlene B. Mar 2020
This Ocean front offers great views and expansive decks. Kitchen is updated and nice indoor views of its a cold day. We’ve stayed at many of the condos on the beach, this one had one of the better views.
JEANETTE O. Feb 2020
This property has an INCREDIBLE view. Morning coffee in the nook, with the sun rising was one of our amazing experiences during the month we spent at Mariner's Watch. Kiawah Island is immaculately kept and the beach is incredible - well maintained, long (about 10 miles in length) and one of the widest I've experienced. The main bedroom has a marvelous view as well and the sound of the surf is lovely when you're falling asleep. The sunsets were incredible! The kitchen is well equipped (I'm a professional cook and only needed to bring my own knives, food processor and Instant Pot). The property is open, light filled and the furnishings are neutral. Exactly what we were looking for. Our dog enjoyed the trip as well. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
Cathy F. Dec 2019
We loved it! The view is fabulous and the property was in great condition. The kitchen was well stocked. We'd love to come back. My kids say that the televisions needed HDMI cables to get a better picture. It was the holidays; we never made it out to buy some. Happy 2020.
Peter G. Dec 2019
View was great!
Rodney O. Nov 2019
Great space for friends, family and dog. Could not ask for more.
Michael R. Sep 2019
This house was exactly like the pictures say it is! It was very clean and had everything you could possibly need and so very organized! They called to make sure everything was ok and that we had everything we needed. The beach was amazing! For the price, you cannot beat it! You will not get the luxury and peacefulness that this location has in a hotel or resort. We will make this a yearly (at least yearly) vacation for us here in this exact home! BEAUTIFUL!!!
Mark B. Jul 2019
Great location and well appointed villa. Already booked it for next year.
Jerrie C. Jun 2019
The location was awesome! It was great to wake up and enjoy coffee while gazing at the beach! However, the stairs for entry to the property were a bit daunting! Any issues we had (a slow shower drain and someone parking in our assigned space) were promptly addressed by Vacasa — thx to Charlene!!!
Elizabeth A. May 2019
Loved it
Rodney M. O. Apr 2019
We loved the fact that not only did they allow our small dog to come, the condo was right on the water and newly renovated.
Alan R. Oct 2018
The only thing to love is the view. We had to replace light bulbs upon entry. Had to request a lamp in order to use the sunroom at night. All the furniture is WORN OUT. You are sitting on the wood. Refrigerator ice and water work intermittently. The air return of the HVAC was filthy. No HDTV. All the tv's are 1980 vintage. Climbing 29 steps was not worth the price paid! The dishwasher door will fall in the floor at anytime. Pots and pans are WORN OUT. Deck furniture is WORN OUT.
Manager response:
We appreciate the guests feedback. The sunroom cushions will be looked at more closely and replaced if needed. Two new high top deck chairs were installed a month ago. We encourage guests to reach out if they have any issues such as the filter, the refrigerator and the dishwasher. There is a flat screen TV over the fireplace and one small flat screen TV in the master bedroom. The unit listing shows thorough pictures of the unit so that guests do not arrive to a surprise, the stairs can be seen in these pictures. The Local Manager will check the pots and pans and replace as needed.

A very comfortable and tastefully furnished beach villa decorated in the coastal style. Breathtaking views of Kiawah Island's beautiful ocean. It's simply an amazing place to stay!

Our vacation week was impacted by hurricane Irma. Leading up to and during the storm, Beachwalker was extremely helpful and kept our family safe and out of harms way. I also appreciate the travel insurance service they offered which reimbursed us for the time we were unable to enjoy our vacation plans and housing. We will be using Beachwalker again in the future! Thanks MaryBeth!!

We have been coming to Kiawah for 25+ years. This was our most enjoyable stay! Loved the communication through Beachwalker's app."

We have been all up & down South Carolina's beaches. We finally selected Kiawah Island because we could take our dog. It was fantastic, and everyone, including our dog, loved the vacation. We are repeat customers & would not miss it!

On the beach with amazing views from almost every room. Beautifully updated with tasteful decorations. Ideally situated in the middle of the island, clause to the park, The Sanctuary, and the Town Center.
Michael M. Dec 2016
We do an annual trip to Kiawah Island every year for the marathon and this condo was the best we have had so far. The location was perfect and the sunrise and sunsets from the balcony were amazing. It is worth the extra money to stay on the beach and have that amazing view. We will be back again next year.
Jennifer B. Oct 2016
My husband and I have been visiting Kiawah every year for the last eight years. We wanted a little bigger lace this year, so we gave this condo a try. IT IS AWESOME! The views from the master, family room, and the sun room are amazing! The condo was clean and the property management company is top notch! My husband and I are planning for the this villa to be our yearly place to stay!

Kiawah Island is for our family. We have vacationed at multiple beaches all along the South Carolina coast during our lifetimes. We will never vacation at another South Caroina beach again. KI is FANTASTIC!
Sharon S. Mar 2016
A great week with great friends in a lovely villa by the sea. The unit is very nicely appointed, location is wonderful, view is outstanding. The stairs are a bit daunting g but good for the legs. The master bath could use an update but we had no complaints.

This rental was ideal! The location was beautiful with incredible views of the beach and only a few steps to the board walk. The unit was clean, updated and fully stocked with everything we needed. We have already rented again for next year.
Alex G. Feb 2016
My wife and beach-loving dog spent 4 nights in this 3 bedroom condo and were 100% satisfied. The balcony and views are amazing, watching the sunrise and sunset each day was exactly what we were looking for. The kitchen is also great, open concept with everything you would expect to be comfortable. We will definitely be coming back, and anyone looking for a wonderful pet-friendly place this is it. Shhh, don't tell too many people though
Ailyn S. Dec 2015
the place was perfect for 10 Kiawah Marathon Runners. Convenient short walk to the start and finish. Roomy for 10 to relax and not to be on each other's space. The view of the ocean was a plus and fortunately warm enough this year to enjoy the beach.
Janet G. Aug 2015
Beachwalker Rentals couldn't have made check-in any easier. Even had the car pass before we arrived! That in itself is a huge plus! Condo was perfect for our party of 6. View from the deck was spectacular! Great location!
