Renovated lagoon-view condo with screened porch & WiFi - steps from the beach

You're going to adore this renovated Mariner's Watch condo, boasting lagoon views and a fantastic location just 150 yards from the beach via Boardwalk 16. Spend the morning sipping coffee on the screened-in porch, with a view of nothing but the trees and lagoon. When hunger strikes, step inside to the full kitchen to make some breakfast. The open living space features lots of natural light thanks to the oversized French doors, hardwood floors, and all the comforts of home. Dine together at the table for four and pop the dishes in the dishwasher for easy cleanup.

When it's time to explore, you’re only a short walk from the beach and just across the street from the recreational Night Heron Park (700 yards away), where you'll find a playground, basketball courts, disc golf course, a nature center, soccer field, and some large grassy areas for picnics. Bike or walk on over 30 miles of nature trails that extend across the island, or visit downtown Charleston, an easy 25-mile drive away.

When you return for the night, play a board game for more together time, watch some TV, or call it a night in the well-appointed bedroom - but not before stepping back out to the porch to toast your good luck at booking the perfect Kiawah Island escape.

Great place and SO close to the beach. Very clean as well. Communication and instructions were easy and no issues. Was perfect for our needs. First time in Kiawah and will definitely be back! Wonderful experience!

Everything about it was great. People who stayed above us were a little noisey.

This is an old unit that has not been maintained well. The pictures are deceiving. The screen door is full of spider webs and is filthy. The refrigerator door handle is rusting and the inside shelves are as well. The oven fan did not have a filter and the light under the kitchen cabinet was dirty, it was black around the edges. The toilet bowel handle did not work. The molding around the closet in the kitchen is broken.

We left a night early because the bed was so bad. While it was our honeymoon and we wanted to be close, we didn't want to lay down in the bed and involuntarily roll towards each other and into the middle of the bed. It is clear to use that the owners have put an old worn out bed they no longer needed in their one bedroom rental. The couch isn't any better and provide little relief or escape. Overall the rental was clean and convenient to the beach, but extremely dark. The kitchen is small and minimally stocked, not that we cooked anything while we were there. We won't be back.
Manager response:

This was our first time to this area, absolutely beautiful. Very peaceful and quiet. Small park for kids in walking distance, bike trails, and the beach was right across the street which was my favorite part.

This unit seemed to b clean upon arrival, but during our stay my momma killed 2 roaches and had to clean all dishes before cooking. There are way to many cups, pots and pans for 2 people. No one would ever use all that in their stay, and they clearly don't cause they had dust all over them. I'd suggest removing more than half the dishes so that people have room to put their food because there wasn't any cabinet space. Microwave didn't Half work unless u press the beverage button. Inside one of the cabinets there was an opened bag of powder sugar and regular sugar. No wonder there are roaches.

We cleaned up before we left, and even vacuumed the living room rug and sucked up atleast a cup of sand outta the rug and we clearly didn't do that. The cleaning deposit needs to b adjusted for the quality you get.

We'd definitely come back and visit the area though
Manager response:
Constance, thank you for your review. We are so sorry to hear that your recent experience was not satisfactory.

The home is serviced by pest control regularly. While we have had no other complaints about the microwave, the house manager will be inspecting it and the home. We truly hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future.

We loved so many things about this place. Easy walk to the beach. Awesome screened porch. Access to great wildlife watching. We enjoyed our stay immensely.
Diane P. Jun 2022
This one bedroom place is neat and cozy. It was clean and had everything you need. We especially loved the screened in porch with a view of the lagoon. We spied some very interesting birds and alligators!! Short walk to the beach.
bruce j. Jun 2022
Very clean. Great location.

Miranda K. May 2022
The beach is a 30 second walk away. There’s a new couch which I know that’s what the main problem was in the other reviews. Bed is comfortable and there’s plenty of cooking equipment. The porch is the best part!
cynthia w. Nov 2021
Very nice, clean 1 bedroom villa. Literally a two minute walk to the beach. Location on the island is great too.
Marla K. Jul 2021
I wouldn't want my name associated with this property. We stayed at a separate property managed by Vacasa in Indian Rocks which was very nice. This property was awful however, especially for the price (understand the location was good and it was peak season by the property was really terrible). Thus the mid-range of recommendation for Vacasa.

None of the house seemed clean. The front screen door was covered in cobwebs and sand, the bathtub had stains, the furniture was old and dirty, there were stains on the ceiling, the pullout couch when opened up was disgusting with crumbs. My daughter refused to sleep on it so was relegated to the small couch.

Everything is old, outdated, and of terrible quality. The furniture was extremely cheap and seemingly could have been purchased from a thrift shop or picked up from what someone leaves out for trash. No reclining chairs or anything of any quality that would make a renter comfortable.
Lily K. Jul 2021
We loved our stay here. A cute and quiet beach villa with a great view on the back porch.
Beverly D. May 2021
Clean, well stocked kitchen & linens. Sofa showing wear. Microwave on top of fridge & for those who are short it is difficult to use.
Mark H. Sep 2020
The location of the villa was convenient and made accessing the beach easy. Unfortunately, the overall cleanliness of the villa was disappointing. When we arrived, we found dried food on the floor in front of the dishwasher, a Hall’s cough drop wrapper on the bathroom floor, a moldy shower curtain liner, mold on the tub surrounds, cobwebs on the chandelier over the dining table, carpets that had not be vacuumed, and a curtain drooping from the rod. The cleaning supplies were very limited-2 dishwasher pod and a quarter of a roll of paper towels.
Manager response:

Location. Location. Location. Easy walk to beach, The Market , and biking/running trails. Surrounded by Nature ! Deer grazing 20 feet behind the porch. A bit stuck in the 1980's in the design and furnishings.
Wayne S. Jul 2020
The location is amazing, and everything about the stay was great. The rental needs a lot of upgrading. It was very clean, but it needs repairs such as the bathroom.
Jill R. Jul 2020
Condo is in a wonderful location and the kitchen had ample dishes and pots and pans. The furniture and paint and decor is very old and pullout couch should be checked.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jill. We appreciate your feedback and we have let local staff know about your suggestion to check the pullout couch. We hope to host you again in the future!
April B. Jul 2020
Steps from the beach! Beach wasn’t crowded at all. I loved the screened in porch as well. Listing was clean and well-appointed. Would love to go back!
Tiffany B. Jun 2020
The location to the beach was amazing!! The general upkeep of furniture and mattress was below standard. There was a smell of urine in the living room. Beautiful area though!
Manager response:
Tiffany, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We apologize for the details that were amiss. Our housekeeping team has addressed the off smell. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to hosting you again in the future!
Theresa L. Jun 2020
The location (close to beach) and space was perfect for two people. We didn't do any cooking but the dinnerware and flatware we did use was all clean. Other than that this place needs a complete remodel. It is dark, dingy and had a musty smell. The furniture, lamps, wall hangings and overall decor are so old and tired. I put a blanket over the couch because otherwise I wouldn't have sat on it. The back door lock is broken. The paint is peeling off the walls in the bathroom. The screen door was loaded with cobwebs. I have been vacationing in Kiawah since the early 1990's - have stayed in many rentals - this is the first time I have to give a bad review. Kiawah is so beautiful and to walk into this depressing villa did not make a good fit. The owners bought this place in 1983 - time to put some money into it. Never again!!
Manager response:
We are sorry to have been unable to provide you with a pleasant and relaxing vacation experience, Theresa. We strive to maintain a standard of excellence in home cleanliness and upkeep for the comfort of our guests in addition to being readily available to assist in addressing any questions or concerns that might arise. We appreciate the opportunity to address any outlying concerns with our local team to ensure our service standards are being thoroughly met. Thank you.
Sean D. Jun 2020
We stayed in this unit and an adjacent unit back-to-back nights in early June 2020 and could not have been happier. The beach was an easy 3-minute walk from the unit, which had everything we needed. It was great to only carry with us what we needed to the beach for a few hours at a time and return if we needed. The condo features are by no means modern, but it does the job well!
Robert P. Mar 2020
Unit was close to the beach. Very clean.
Chris W. Jul 2019
The furniture in the unit I rented was old And dilapidated and should be replaced
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world-class service.
