This second floor villa has great lagoon views and is just steps from the beach!

You'll be only 150 yards from an amazing Kiawah beach in a second-floor Mariners Watch villa featuring a screened-in porch with views of a lagoon! Start your morning off right with a fresh cup of coffee and your favorite novel on the bench swing out on the porch. You'll love the tranquil nature sounds you hear from the lagoon mixed with the gentle rhythm of the ocean surf. The interior is open and homey with lots of natural light and a welcoming atmosphere. Use the kitchen to cook a romantic dinner for two or a hearty lunch for a full day of sun and sand. Snuggle up on the couch with someone you love to enjoy your favorite shows on the flatscreen cable TV then head out for a moonlight walk along the shoreline.

Stayed at Mariner's Watch 4267 for the third year now. Close to the beach, beautiful, clean and well appointed to provide all you need for a week's stay. I love Mariner's Watch and this unit is the one I always return to. Try it and you'll see why.

Neat, Clean, good communication, quiet, close to the beach! Can't think of a negitive.

We had a wonderful stay at this nicely appointed condo. The unit is small but big on everything you need like a very comfortable king size bed and plush sofa. AND… the best part is, it’s only a couple minute walk to the beach.

Great spot convenient to beach and The sanctuary.

The unit shows its considerable age but was clean and serviceable. Note that the laundry is a shared facility in the basement. Small things that could make the unit more comfortable include a second luggage rack, better lighting to allow for reading, and a throw for use in the living room. Note that guest's car will be covered in tree droppings daily - for white vehicles I suggest frequent wipe downs to avoid staining. No fault of the unit - simply a warning to be prepared.
Manager response:
Hi, Wendolyn! We appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your visit to Mariner's Watch. The homeowner is looking into adding more lighting and a throw for the living room. The laundry is located on the screened porch in a closet. Thank you!

Our entire stay was superb. The Island is wonderful. Our rental unit was well furnished, clean, and close to the beach. The entire check-in and out process was simple and without any issues.
Well done!!!
Kirk T. Oct 2021
Well set up and had everything you could need (especially in the kitchen). Very comfortable bed and screened in porch with a great view. I stayed in this unit 2 years ago and look forward to possibly coming back in the future.

Nice small condo unit near the beach.

Wonderful location and very clean. Would love to stay here again.
Amanda T. Aug 2021
We liked the convenient location to beach, the comfortable bed, size of space, the screen porch, and the beach!!! Kitchen was adequately equipped. Recommend cleaning all of the air vents and dusting the TV areas for spiderwebs and excess dust. I also recommend doing a pest control bug spray for roaches that we did see near hallway and in bathroom.
Manager response:

Loved the location and convenience to the beach. Great view from the back porch and loved the swing
James B. Jun 2021
Fully equipped with everything you need, very comfortable, close to the beach and great price. Can’t ask for more.
Samantha H. Mar 2021
We enjoyed the quiet location next to the lagoon, and the closeness to the beach. The villa was a good shape however, there was no sheets available for the pull out sofa and no blanket. The staff did bring sheets after we called they next day, but no blanket. It wasn't a big deal and we would definitely stay here again.
Richard S. Feb 2021
For the price needed lots of talc and basic maintenance. Won’t stay here again.
Manager response:
Hello, Richard. We are sorry the home did not meet your expectations. Thank you for sharing your feedback and for bringing some items to our attention that may need some TLC. We have passed your feedback to our local staff to work on improving the home for future guests. We hope we can host you again for a much more enjoyable stay.

The unit was good. Close to the beach and other amenities. Could use a good dusting. The fan in the bedroom was covered in dust didn't want to turn it on. The air vents, baseboards, and living room beams also covered in dust. Coffee table breakfast table countertops were all clean. Just needs a deep clean.

This is the 7th time we've rented in Mariner's Watch. We love the unit layout, size, and location within Kiawah. It's perfect for the just the two of us.

While the unit looks great online, the brightness of the pictures appears to be increased to make the unit look newer/brighter than it really is. Look at the difference of the color of the brown couch in the stills vs the virtual tour.

It looks like parts of the unit have been updated (bathroom, newer washer/dryer, and kitchen appliances). All of the furniture was acceptable and in good shape. The kitchen was reasonably well equipped.

Our top issue with the unit was the visible evidence of mold. My wife smelled it the instant we walked into the unit. You could see it on the HVAC vent in the MBR. When I went to see what might be the cause of that, I found that the HVAC filter hadn't been changed in 8 months (date written on the filter). The property management company did change out the filter for us within the first 24 hours but the unit felt damp the entire week.

We did explore changing units but nothing was available without a big increase in price. The property management company did make a price adjustment for our stay which we appreciated.

I don't think it would take too much to bring this unit back up to Kiawah standards:

1. get the HVAC checked to make sure it's operating properly (and ongoing maintenance).
2. Mitigate the existing mold.
3. Upgrade the TV/AV systems (The TV in the MBR has a built in VHS player and the sound system in the living room/kitchen includes a 5 disk CD player)

We booked this unit directly on the VRBO site and rely heavily on public ratings. I think this unit averaged 4.8 out of 5 when we booked it - though only 2 total reviews since Oct 2018 (I didn't notice that upon booking). This could be a 5 star unit as all the pieces are there. Hopefully our feedback will make it back to the owners and property management company so that future guests will have a great experience.
Manager response:
Thank you for choosing our home, Joel! We appreciate your feedback and suggestions to continue improving our service and the experience offered to our guests. We confirm mold has been removed and AC filters are regularly changed. We hope we can host you again!

We really enjoyed our stay. It’s a fun family vacationing place and very quiet. We had a relaxing stay. Bring your bikes and be ready to relax. We’ll be back.
Vernon L. Mar 2020
Was a nice clean peaceful unit, of course not much going on in February lol. Was there for a 2 day golf tournament. Enjoyed the stay and closeness to beach access.
Andy H. Oct 2018
The property was clean and as advertised, and check in and check out were fairly easy
Kurt H. Sep 2018
Work needs to be done in the unit. Lots of room for improvement.
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.
Jerry C. May 2018
We love Kiawah! This condo was perfect for the two of us! Only a short walk to the beach!
