Our Turtle Cove villa is ideally located on Kiawah...close to major activities, but far enough away that our section of the beach is uncrowded, and the surroundings tranquil. We are near the East Beach village, with its shops, casual dining, and convenience store. Next door, within easy walking distance, is the East Beach tennis center...Kiawah has recently been ranked the top tennis resort in the world. Also nearby is the 5-star Sanctuary Hotel, with gourmet dining and a beautiful lawn-side lounge.
Our villa is a top-floor unit, which features vaulted ceilings, a recently-remodeled kitchen, an enclosed sun room area, and wide-screen LCD TVs in the living room and both bedrooms. The enclosed sun room makes our villa seem much larger than other equivalent condos on Kiawah, giving you plenty of space to spread out, or (heaven forbid) get some work done while on your vacation.
When you rent from us, you receive full resort amenities, such as use of the tennis center, preferred tee times, and access to the pools (at the East Beach Tennis Center as well as Night Heron Park. When looking to rent from someone else, be sure to verify that you have access to the amenities on Kiawah.
The kitchen was completely remodeled in 2008, and has stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. A wide assortment of dishes, pots & pans, untensils, and small appliances are provided (even an espresso maker), making it easy to prepare meals in the condo if you so prefer.
The master bedroom has a king-size bed with a large dresser. A high-definition LCD television and a DVD player provide late-night entertainment. The attached master bath was also remodeled, with new cabinets and granite countertop.
The second bedroom has twin beds, a chest of drawers, night stand, and an LCD television. There is also a seating area. The second bathroom, also remodeled with granite, is directly connected to the bedroom for privacy, along with a door off the hallway.
The villa has a full-size washer and dryer, so you don't have to pack a week's worth of clothes. There is also a pantry off the kitchen, to hold any groceries you may have brought.
The Turtle Point clubhouse is within walking distance of our condo, with an excellent lounge, restaurant, and, of course, golf. There are four public courses on the island, and an additional course just outside the Kiawah main gate. The Ocean Course is world famous, and has hosted numerous professional events, including the Ryder Cup.
The incredible Kiawah Island 10 mile-long beach is a 10 minute walk (or a 4 minute bike ride) from the villa. The section of beach closest to our condo is uncrowded, even by Kiawah standards. The sand bottom has a very gradual decline, perfect for every member of the family.
Bike paths make access to every part of the island easy and convenient by bicycle. There are numerous places that provide bicycle rentals, including the resort.
