The location proximity to the beach and the quality of the rental unit.
Petra B. May 2022
Convenient to beach! Wonderful vacation with beautiful walking and biking trails to beach and lagoons. The unit was very clean and well equipped. Only negative was the furniture too crowded for the space and the living room rug curled up and was a tripping hazard.
Manager response:
Petra, thank you for taking the time to share your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time at our home and were able to explore the area. We appreciate your feedback about the furniture and rug. We have addressed the rug and it is corrected and safe for guests to walk around. We hope that you’ll come to stay again very soon.

Loved how close it was to the beach!!
Kenneth B. Mar 2022
The condo gave us excellent access to the beach and walking/biking trails. The unit was well equipped and terrific for two. It would have been a tight fit for more of us. The unit has a good kitchen as well as excellent Wi-Fi/internet. It was nicely furnished.
Alexandra N. Mar 2022
This condo is small, but plenty of room for our family (2 adults, 5yo, 9mo, 60lb dog). It's so close to the beach, and right on the bike trail, which was really nice. Nothing fancy, but has all you need for a simple stay by the beach. We really appreciated being able to do laundry during our stay, and Night Heron park across the street looks like it's tons of fun during the warmer months.
Jan H. Jan 2022
Loved the screened in porch. Had coffee in the morning and wine at night. And the walk to the beach was beautiful. But, the best part was being able to bring our fur babies.
Carol M. Dec 2021
Great location.
Donna C. Oct 2021
Wonderful weather, nice accommodations. No issues or problems.
Relaxing, quiet and enjoyable. Love the nature aspects all around the area.

Sara C. Jun 2021
We enjoyed our stay so much! The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. Super dog friendly for our fur baby. Mariners Watch was very relaxing and a great getaway.
Thomas A. Jun 2021
Our dog Sadie is 15 years old. In the past we have traveled without her, but we thought at her age she would have a difficult time with boarding or a stranger coming in to look after her. So this pet friendly condo worked perfect for my wife and I, and of course, Sadie.
Caroline & Tim W. May 2021
We had an amazing time staying here, it was spotlessly clean when we came in and even smelled good! We enjoyed breakfast on the screened in porch overlooking the lagoon, and even the short walk to the beach was filled with beautiful scenery. We highly recommend Mariners Watch 4250
Abbie T. Mar 2021
This is the second place we have booked in Mariner’s Watch. This is by far the cleanest and best maintained of the two. We would absolutely stay here again. We ran into an issue with the AC on our second to last day. The property manager was very responsive, but unfortunately the issue was not resolved during our stay, making sleeping uncomfortable the last two nights. Overall, a great place.
Manager response:
Thank you for choosing our home, Abbie! It was a pleasure hosting you and we are glad you enjoyed your visit. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by the AC not working during a portion of your stay. Our records show that this was fixed temporarily by our maintenance staff to improve your comfort. We are happy to confirm that the AC is working perfectly now. We look forward to hosting you again!
Perrin T. Feb 2021
We really enjoyed our stay at Mariner's Watch. It was perfect for a weekend getaway. The kitchen was minimally equipped but offered everything we needed. The bed and pillows were pretty uncomfortable, but for just a weekend and for the price it was manageable. We would stay again and enjoy another weekend of bikes rides and pretty views.
Manager response:
Hi Perrin, Thank you so much for your feedback! The owner has added a new foam pad and pillow top mattress pad to the bed to ensure our guests are comfortable during their stay. We hope you will return again soon!
Dawn W. Jan 2021
I really enjoyed the condo. It had all the amenities I needed for a week stay. The bed was very comfortable and it was a quick walk across the parking lot to get to the beach every morning to see the sunrise. I also enjoyed sitting in the living area and watching all the wildlife.

The villa was even cleaner than when I stayed in January. While small, it was the perfect size for a couple. If you believe Covid is a hoax, that's all you need to know. However, if you believe the disease is worth serious concern, keep reading. DON'T GO TO KIAWAH RIGHT NOW. The Mariner's Watch regime decided to schedule workers to enter the villa during my stay, so I left 2 days early. WTH?? We are in the middle of a pandemic. The locals do not seem to be taking it seriously, with basically no mask use. The workers promised to wear masks, but I saw no evidence with other cleaning staff or workers on the island that made me believe it would happen. The guests on the island aren't much better - I heard a loud party at Windswept one evening. Like me, you may think Kiawah offers the perfect opportunity for a socially distanced getaway. It does not. STAY AWAY. If you have a reservation, cancel it. I won't return until we have a vaccine. It was a phenomenal waste of my time and money to go there. I deeply regret it - and you will too.
Christine C. Oct 2020
Loved this unit - perfect for a getaway for two. It really is steps to the beach, right on the bike/walking path. Unit was clean and had anything we needed to cook and relax. In terms of traveling during COVID, I felt very safe here and with how clean the unit was. Kiawah is a magical place! Highly recommend, we will be back to this unit.
David T. Aug 2020
Nice little villa but it needs some work - pealing paint in the bathroom, etc . Not well stocked in the kitchen. Overall, a great weekend in Kiawah.
Manager response:
Hi David, We appreciate you taking the time to leave your helpful feedback! The bathroom has been completely repainted to resolve the peeling paint. We hope you'll return again soon!
Ashley H. Aug 2020
I absolutely loved that I could be at the beach in less than 5 minutes. Having coffee on the screened in porch while relaxing was amazing. Would stay here again.
Daniel T. Jun 2020
Great location near beach and bike paths. The screened in back porch was wonderful. Furnished with everything you need and was clean on arrival. Mid level in terms of furnishings. Useable kitchen, not fancy. Good bed. Needs better wine glasses—not fragile or plastic.
For Kiawah, very reasonably priced.
Bernie B. May 2020
We have rented here in Kiawah for a few years now....and its always great. This home was no exception....perfect getaway!
elizabeth s. Feb 2020
the location
Matthew B. Feb 2020
Great place, great location, great price!
Cristy F. Jan 2020
The unit has been refreshed, so the pictures are not accurate - in a good way! It is the perfect size for one person or a couple. Very comfortable, clean unit. And, an extra perk for pets - it has a small table with baskets in the hallway. A thoughtful touch for any dog owner - the perfect place to store a leash and any other items you need. Looking forward to staying there again. Oh - and Vacasa contacted me three times to make sure everything was well and advise about winterizing procedures when the temp dropped to (gasp) 30. (Like me, many of you won't think that is cold.)
CARLA O. Dec 2019
The screened in porch with the live oak and water view was wonderful. Short walk to the boardwalk to the beach was nice. Kitchen is well appointed. First trip to Kiawah Island and we loved it. Bed is comfortable, but very squeaky getting in and out (?). Overall, a nice place to stay.
Joe R. Nov 2019
The Condo was situated within 100 yards from the beach. The only negative was the unit was not updated.
Richard T. Oct 2019
Short walk to the beach. Comfortable place to stay
Shelby K. Jul 2019
My husband and I vacationed here and loved the location and how close it was to the beach and the bike path. We enjoyed sitting on the back screened in porch each day for meals or afternoon games. The home is within a close bike ride or car ride to many restaurants and hot spots including The Sanctuary and The Ryder Cup Bar at the Ocean Course. It was our first time to Kiawah but we will definitely be back!
Thomas K. Jul 2019
Staying at Mariner's Watch Villa 4250, Kiawah Island, SC; Jul 1 - 5, 2019 was a great way to celebrate the beginning of our daughters first year of college as a Freshman of the class of 2023. Looking forward to more visits to the island for family time.
Robin D. Jun 2019
Because so many family members were gathering during the week, we needed some extra room. This one bedroom was perfect for our needs. Uncluttered and simple, it was very reasonably priced and a great location for us! We were thankful to find an affordable option!!
Brandee R. Jun 2019
It was close to the beach. The unit is perfect for two people.
Robert C. May 2019
Location was perfect for a day at the beach or riding bike trails. The weather was spectacular!
Marcus D. Apr 2019
Enjoyed the stay and the privacy. It was a nice place and we enjoyed it.
Fran and Tom U. Apr 2019
Great place to visit. Although we are not golfers the beach is fabulous
Vicki S. Mar 2019
just as described and very comfortable. the dog loved it
Susan M. Mar 2019
Great location. Quiet. No laundry facilities.
Todd L. Sep 2018
The villa was very clean and well appointed! Very short walk to the beach. I enjoyed the golfing, outdoor activities, and restaurants on Kiawah Island were all great! I really enjoyed the after hours ease of checking in too.
Elaine . Jun 2018
Enjoyed our stay and able to bring our little dog. (She does NOT like the kennel.) very close to the beach, loved riding bikes all over the island. Kiawah is one of our favorite places to beach-nice wide and not very crowded.
Anonymous . May 2016
As usual, we found everything in excellent condition and Beachwalker staff made themselves accessible 24/7 should we need them. This condo was very well stocked with everything we needed to feel at home away from home. The short walk to the beach was very convenient and we greatly enjoyed having Freshfields and the grocery store so close by. King Street Grill at Freshfields and Chez Fish on Bohicket were two of our favorite restaurants. We had hoped for a better view of the lagoon, but did get to see an alligator from the porch and cormorants nesting nearby. We also saw five deer, one right on our path to the beach.
Doug R. Nov 2015
We were celebrating our 25th anniversary and wanted to be close to the Sanctuary (5 minute drive) and the beach (2 minute walk). Clean and very good condition.
