We thought the place was just great. Clean with a nice updating. Nice small size for two. Good central location close to the beach.
Marilyn D. Apr 2022
Close to the beach 2 minute walk…clean and just perfect for 2 people. 😊
Tom B. Mar 2022
Kiawah Island is a beautiful place. We loved our stay at Mariner’s Watch. It’s small but was just fine for us. Great bathroom and lovely screened in porch. We were literally a two minute walk to a gorgeous beach and the Atlantic Ocean which we walked every day.
Peach O. Feb 2022
The detail of comfortable furniture, combined with a fresh contemporary look. The large screened sitting deck, looking out at the trees; with wall to wall sliding glass- added a dimension of openness to the smallish living room/ kitchen dining area. Luxury bathroom, with large glassed shower, done in rich tones of stone. A charming bedroom.
Antoinette D. Feb 2022
I love the comparability of the house
Margaret G. Oct 2021
Everything has been updated nicely. The washer/dryer was a little wobbly but worked.
Rob M. Sep 2021
Heavy rain with flash flood warnings, but we walked and rode bikes between downpours! The screened in porch was wonderful to have during the rain..lots of reading out there. Sun finally came out..yay! Condo was very clean, updated decor, well appointed kitchen. Steps away from the beach!
Alan G. Sep 2021
Clean and beautifully decorated. Didn’t need a thing in the kitchen. Very comfortable, cact go wrong with this villa!
Rebecca M. Jul 2021
We loved this place!!!! Also, arrangements and entry was super organized and easy!!!!
Misha P. Jul 2021
We liked the unit overall and it is 2 minutes to the beach It was nicely remodelled some years ago. We liked the large shower and long vanity. However, the bed is small and the kitchen doesn’t have any space to prep meals. The dining chairs upholstery desperately needs replacement. They are dirty and too old.
Manager response:
Hello Misha, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!
Jennette I. Jun 2021
Concerns-The cleaning company needs to do a better job. Villa had not been cleaned upon arrival. The comforter had stains on it. The couches, carpet and dining table chairs had stains on them. Coffee grounds were left in the maker. There was an old air filter in the bedroom cabinet.

Positives-great location to the beach. Plenty of room for two people. Bathroom was good size/updated. Nice unit.
Manager response:
We are so glad you stayed with us, Jennette, and appreciate your review. We apologize for the cleanliness issues you encountered. We were happy to bring you a new comforter and have dry cleaned the old one. The carpet and chairs are scheduled for a cleaning. Thank you!
Scott T. Jun 2021
Great condo. Had a great time.
Kathleen M. Nov 2020
The only reason I don'[t give 5 stars is that they didn't provide any coffee and it is a 5 mile drive to buy it. Even the worst Motel 6 provides coffee. Otherwise, it is a very nice condo with an oceanfront breeze within a short walk to the beach.
Manager response:
Hello, Kathleen. Thank you for your review! We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced due to the lack of coffee. Please note that our homes typically only provide basic essentials, and any specialty items may need to be planned for accordingly. We appreciate your feedback and the opportunity to improve this home for future reservations. We hope to host you again in the future!
PATRICIA L. Oct 2020
Excellent location Just 2 minutes walk to the beach!
Jeffrey G. Oct 2020
The condo was very nicely renovated, however there were several issues. Several of the electrical switches did not work in the bedroom and the kitchen. The dial on the dryer kept coming off. The drapes were coming off the rod.
Manager response:
Hi, Jeffrey! We are disappointed to read you encountered any issues during your stay. The drapes have been repaired, the dryer knob has been secured, and we have checked all of the switches. Thank you for staying with us!
Tim L. Oct 2020
This property is very pleasant and relaxing. From the rain shower head to the very short walk to the beach, the experience we had was wonderful. We plan on returning.
KENNETH N. Jul 2020
Great Location, modern and clean condo with nice screened in porch. The condo needs some minor electrical work.
Craig and Karen F. Jun 2020
It was great to walk out of our townhouse and have just steps to the beach, very convenient!
Kim B. May 2020
This is the second time we've been to this condo. The bed is the MOST comfortable we've had in any rental! The shower makes me want to remodel my own. The kitchen is fully equipped and since we rarely go out at the beach, it just works for us.
The porch is wonderful. I practiced yoga every morning on it listening to the birds with the background of the ocean. So close to the beach and easy access to bike trails. We can't wait to return. Also super clean and sanitized in this crazy time of our world. Thank you!

Peter A. May 2020
lived in. picture seems old but quality furniture and stove(tops) all work flawlessly. easy walk to beach. Great hardwood floors. Nice personal feel to location. Can hear ocean from kitchen when door to screened in porch is open. | would rent again.
Daraka G. Jan 2020
Location and accommodations were great.
Jeffrey G. Jan 2020
It was early January when we stayed here and we practically had the beach to ourselves. Rode bikes, enjoyed just relaxing, loved it!
Bill H. Dec 2019
The decor was outstanding and location close to the beach was terrific. Definitely will stay there again.
Daniel N. Nov 2019
We loved 4236's location and decor. It was very clean and a great stay for a weekend getaway. The only complaint we had on the villa was the capacity of the water heater is woefully undersized. The shower was very nicely appointed, but a hot shower only lasted 8-10 minutes then it was lukewarm at best. Aside from that minor detail, it was fantastic and we would consider staying there again.
Thomas B. Nov 2019
Our fourth time there and it is as good as ever.
Paula O. Sep 2019
I love Mariner's Watch and this unit is super close to the beach. Great oversized shower, nice cabinetry throughout, well done unit. Only issue was that we were only given one roll of tp...would think that a back-up would be left...suggest that two rolls for two people for 4 nights would be reasonable :)
Susan P. Aug 2019
Everything is updated and convenient. This is the second time we have stayed at this villa and love it.
Melba B. Jul 2019
The accomodations were spotless, updated, and awesome beach access! Our patio felt peaceful and secluded for relaxing morning times and we literally walked less than 2 minutes to the gorgeous beach. Vacasa kept us informed prior, during, and after with any information I needed to know or have. Definitely using the app for future destinations and will continue to vacation in Kiawah!
Christine B. Jun 2019
Perfect size for 2, perfect location only 2 min walk to the beach, and great finishes! Be mindful of barking dog upstairs and loud walkers above your head.
Joshua C. Apr 2019
We just spent the weekend at Mariner’s Watch and we absolutely loved it. We did not want to go home. The sound of the ocean crashing in the distance... the minute walk to the sand.... the convenience of having all the amenities of home... We cannot wait to go back!
Sandy V. Mar 2019
Lovely condo situated in a great location. We will definitely rent this condo again. We really enjoyed & appreciated the updates.
Camelia M. Feb 2019
This 1 bedroom condo had everything you need to feel at home away from home in paradise. It’s close walking distance from a pristine private beach. There are parks, bike paths and scenic walkways all over the island. If you rent bikes they will deliver them to the bike rack right outside your condo, and pick them up when your done. We only had 2 days, wish we’d had a week to enjoy everything the condo and island had to offer. We would definitely rent this space again!
Andrew D. Jan 2019
We had the best quick trip to Kiawah! The condo was clean and perfect for a quick trip away!
Marianna P. Jan 2019
Clean, accommodating, and next to the beach. Definitely recommend!
Delphine D. Dec 2018
We live the comfy and decor of this unit! Hope to be back, same time next year!
Carla E. Nov 2018
The villa was well appointed and appeared to be professionally decorated with very nice finishes. The shower was awesome. Anything, and I do mean anything you could possibly want or need for a kitchen is there. The bed was very comfortable, the pull out sofa-bed not so much, but we brought a featherbed topper for extra comfort which remedied that issue. The chair, ottoman and sofa were comfortable for sitting and watching tv. The tv in the master is a bit small, but by the time we got to bed we were sleep shortly there after so it really didn't matter. The location was good with the beach being a 3 minute walk away. Last but not least, there is amazing storage space. All in all we couldn't have asked for a more relaxing weekend. Thanks to our villa stay we felt right at home.
Scott T. Oct 2018
Awesome place just two things. 1. The water heater is tiny. 2. It’s a bit far from Charleston. Besides that it was fantastic!
Peter R. Oct 2018
Loved this villa! Great updated modern decor. Path to the beach right outside the door, less than 5 minute walk.
Kim B. Sep 2018
Great location! Loved the porch kitchen well stocked, comfy bed. Loved it!
Richard K. Aug 2018
Great location, short walk to the beach. If I had to do it again, I would choose an upstairs unit, floors are thin so we heard every footstep and every move of furniture above us. Balcony ceiling fan was inoperable, it would've been nice to have that when we were having a glass of wine in the evening.
Manager response:
We have notified the owner of these comments and would like to thank this guest for sharing their thoughts!
Jim W. Aug 2018
Everything was top rate. The furnishings were lovely, the linens were super nice, the kitchen, household accessories and gadgets were top notch. Perfect getaway!
Seela N. Jul 2018
Excellent property and easy beach access.
Susan H. Sep 2017
Everything was in good repair, other than the normal wear and tear of previous visitors. Very peaceful and comfortable. Would definitely rent this unit on a return trip.
Amanda M. Jul 2017
It was our first time in Kiawah and we absolutely loved it!!! This location was perfect and we will definitely be staying again!
Claire C. Jul 2017
4236 Mariner's Watch is totally renovated and very thoughtfully done. Many builtins, lots of storage and steps to beach, comfy bed, hear the ocean from screened in porch."

As frequent visitors to Kiawah, we have experienced many different areas of the island and rentals. This unit exceeded expectations. It was updated as advertised, clean, well equipped, and 40 yards to the beach. The shower was magnificent! Check in and check out were very smooth and efficient. We will be back.
Judy C. Mar 2017
My husband and I just spent 2 wonderful weeks at 4236 Mariner's Watch. It definitely rates as a 5 star villa. The entire condo has been newly renovated and tastefully decorated. It's just a couple minutes walk to the beach. You can hear the ocean from the sunroom! The property was immaculate and Beachwalkers provided excellent services. Our favourite activities included long bike rides and walks to both extremities of the island. Fresh Fields provides good shopping and food sources. We will be back!
Mark and Leslie R. Feb 2017
For full transparency, we are friends of the owners, but we really enjoyed staying here in 2016 and 2015. Had we been unhappy, we would simply have told them and not written a negative review, but we had absolutely nothing to complain about. They remodeled it not too long ago, making the bathroom larger with a really nice shower. It's just a very short walk to the ocean and Night Heron Park and the place was in great condition. You can read about the other features and amenities in the description, but if you're looking for a 1BR villa, you definitely should consider this one! The only thing that could prevent us from staying here again is the fact that we liked it so much, we've thought about getting our own villa! I will add that Beachwalker has been great to deal with as well. I mentioned to them that we were coming for my wife's birthday and asked that they not copy her on e-mails because it was a surprise. When we arrived, there was a card to her and I believe it was something chocolate. Totally unexpected and thoughtful.
Elizabeth M. Nov 2016
This was a lovely week of relaxation in a beautifully remodeled villa. Access to the beach is very close, and the ocean can be heard from the porch. The villa is well supplied to meet every need. I look forward to my next visit!
Stuart M. Sep 2016
We have stayed at several other properties in Kiawah and this is one is one of the best! The location is great and the property is well appointed! We will absolutely stay here again!

The condo was wonderful, clean and ready for us on time. One small maintenance issue was promptly handled. Will be back next year.

Great experience with Beachwalker rentals. The condo unit was just as described. They were very welcoming upon arrival. We had a small issue and they responded immediately

We vacationed week of May 14th (2 adults). Condo was just as pictured and described, very well appointed, high-end comfortable bed, and just a short walk to the beach. Rental agency was very helpful and responded quickly to one question we had. Says it can fit 4 people. Depends on your family, but we thought 4 would be tight? Definitely rent bikes to explore the beautiful island (we used Alligator, a very easy experience...bikes were waiting when we got there). We ended up purchasing beach chairs (left them for next visitors, not sure if they'll still be there?) vs paying the high rental rates they wanted for the blue chairs on the beach. Description of the condo says no beach towels (or chairs) which was somewhat perplexing given one of the main attractions here is ... the beach. But don't let that stop you from renting this place. It was very nice. Our favorite restaurants - Chez Fish and Lokal. Charleston is a beautiful city, just a short ride away, and Jestine's for fried chicken was well worth the wait.
Mark R. Feb 2016
We had a great time during our stay and everything was perfect. There is absolutely nothing to complain about. This has to be one of the nicest 1BR villas on the island and we would choose 4236 Mariner's Watch again for our next visit.

Beautiful, upgraded villa. Convenient to beach, town center, and all golf courses. Very comfortable place to spend a week.
