Mariners watch v windswept villas

Looking to rent a condo through Kiawah resort for an August stay. These both look fairly similar in relation to location of beach and night heron pool. Are there any other big differences between the 2 I should consider? Traveling will be me with my wife and our 3 year old son. We stayed in mariners watch last year. Thanks.

No significant differences, if you've stayed in Mariner's Watch, you were right across the street from Windswept. The only differences will be in the decor of the individual units (which are each privately owned).

Thank you. Anyone familiar with 4409 windswept? Pros? Cons?

We've stayed at both and really enjoyed both. Each individual condo unit is unique so pick the one you like best. Windswept had us with unobstructed views of the beach and just a little closer to the convenience store.

We have stayed in both Windswept and Mariners. I really like the Windswept the best.

For most folks, Windswept is more centrally located, especially when wanting to be close to activities at Night Heron Park.

Even though Mariner's Watch is right across the street, there is more of a walk.

Hi-- I like the layout of Windswept better... also the location altho they are not that far apart. Stayed in Windswept (various villas) about 5x Mariners once and I believe Turtle once too. Windswept just appeared cleaner and more well kept, but I could've just lucked out!

We are in building 4446. Does anyone know which villa or other structure this is?

You are probably in one of the two condo buildings on the island. It is oceanfront, can't tell you what your view will be from your exact unit. It would be Windswept.

Centrally located, not far from East Beach amenities and not far from The Sanctuary.

Actually, that could be either Windswept or Shipwatch, which is closer to the “front” of the island.

Ask the Resort which building you are in.

There is a map of the island, available on the Resort’s website.
