Bedrooms 1
Space 615 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Kiawah Island is one of the most upscale vacation destinations in the country (per Conde Nast). Our villa is an upgraded one bedroom unit (in a private, gated island community) that complies with the requirements of being considered a premier tier rental, comparing with The Sanctuary Hotel standards. We have spent a lot of time ensuring our guests have all the luxuries of home.

While the unit is not beachfront (about a 75 yard walk to the beach), there is nothing separating the villa other than vegetation and sand dunes from the beach.

Please visit the links and video for a 360 degree look at our villa!

The Master Bedroom has a King size bed and a flat screen TV. There is a pull out sofa with a queen mattress in the living room and a flat screen HD TV.

The villa is a part of the Kiawah Island Resort program which means you will be treated as a guest of the resort giving you access to the Night Heron Pool and playground (which is across the street) as well as the Tennis Club Pool. Your reservation also gives you preferred access for reservations to the resort restaurants including The Ocean Room and Jasmine Porch located in The Sanctuary Hotel as well as the Spa at The Sanctuary.

After a day at the beach, golf course, tennis court, pool, walking paths, bike, our villa is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

The Night Heron Park (pool), Town Center, East Beach Tennis Club, and Sanctuary Hotel, are all within walking/biking distance. The villa is centrally located to all the golf courses.

Smoking is not permitted in the villa or on the screened porch and NO grills permitted in the villa complex due to wood construction.

We would be honored if you would consider a stay in our beautiful vacation home on Kiawah Island.

Why Gary chose East Beach Village

In 2004, my job required me to move away from our home in Charleston. We wanted to have a Charleston connection, and invested in this property on Kiawah Island. While our unit is rented most of the time, we try to visit and experience the wonderful Kiawah/Charleston experience as often as possible.

What makes this condo unique

4232 Mariner's Watch is a quiet, peaceful location just feet away from the beach. There is no need to leave the confines of Kiawah once you are there: Golf, tennis, biking, beach, pool, fabulous restaurants, and wildlife will keep you entertained during your stay.

Weather was great. This unit had one of few beach ramps rebuilt after hurricane. We bikes the entire island and beach. Had a most enjoyable weekend. This has got to be one of the best beaches anywhere.

Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most lovely stay. Gary was so easy to work with in every way, so helpful and quick with all of his emails. When we elected to extend our stay by one day, it all flowed perfectly.

Just my husband and me on this trip -- and the condo was the exact size we needed. Such a lovely spot. We really are beach-goers and the beach was only a minute away. At the same time, we fell in love with the pool, only a 5-minute walk. We scheduled golf and then ended up cancelling as the weather was so lovely!

All in all, we cannot wait to return!

Awesome location and use of resort privileges was a hit-Great for family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 4232 Mariner's Watch. It is less than a minute walk to the beach, the boardwalk starts a few steps from the villa. We enjoyed going to Night Heron children's pool (access included with our stay) and nature center. Our 5 year old was thrilled to use the pool slides. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The King sized bed was sufficient for the three of us. The kitchen area was well appointed and clean. There were enough dishes and cookware for a family of 4-5. We made a couple of small meals. The bathroom was also very clean and stocked with towels and bath kits. We decided to stay an extra day and it only took a text to the owner, Gary Sanginario to arrange it. He had already been extremely helpful and friendly throughout the booking process and checkin. Kiawah island was amazing. Although we came at the tail end of summer, we enjoyed biking and kayaking. We connected with the Kiawah turtle patrol and they allowed us to tag along for a sea turtle nest assessment. They retrieved 3 hatchlings that needed some help getting to the sea. Our son (us too) were delighted. We also spotted a dolphin mom and pup in the creek during our evening kayak trip. We drove to Canvasback pond to see if alligators were visible. As soon as we walked to the dock, a couple of gators swam over to check things out. It seems they expect fishermen with some bait. Many types of birds were around. My favorite were the pink Spoonbills. Families of deer were seen everyday. In all it was a wonderful experience. Mariner's watch is located close to the main resort area and not too far from Fresh Fields, the spot for all kinds of food shopping, some restaurants and resort shopping. Highly recommend staying at this villa unit if visiting Kiawah.

Peaceful, clean setting among endless amenities

  • 4 of 5

We did not know what to expect by booking this place on Kiawah Island. The property was clean and well-kept. The golf resort is amazing and there are endless activities to take part in. 1 minute walk to the beach, 5 minute walk to the nicest pool in the property grounds. Tomasso restaurant was our favorite onsite place. Golf courses all looked amazing! You will not be disappointed staying anywhere on this island.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic (quick) stay at the villa! The villa has a great setup; our son used the sofa bed, and it was very comfortable. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The beach and pool are very convenient, and the resort has many other amenities to take advantage of. We will stay here again!
