Kiawah - which villa is closest to Night Heron kiddie pool

Hello, have never been to Kiawah, all advice welcome! Headed there the second week of September 2013 when rates our lower so we have more wiggle room. I know we want to be in East Beach with FULL RESORT PRIVILEGES so that we can take our 4 year old twins to the new Night Heron kiddie pool. My question: which villa would you recommend that is closest to the pool (so that the little ones can walk there easily) but is also as close as possible to the beach so that we can also walk there (for mommy. It's not a vacation to me unless I can at least hear the ocean). I know we're looking at probably Mariner's Watch or Windswept. I guess if necessary i could also go for a scenic/lagoon/parkview -- but it seems like they are quite a walk to the pool. Any advice?? Any specific addresses of a clean modern villa you care to share?

Just need a 2 bedroom but maybe we can go for a 3 bedroom in a better location if the rates are good.

Any other advice welcome as well regarding our stay. Thanks!

Windswept is where we stayed for a number of years, when we wanted to be near Night Heron Park.

Can't help with any specifics, it's been over ten years since we rented. Windswept is about as close as you'll get to both beach and pool.

We always stay at Windswept and indeed it is a very short walk to both the pool and the beach. Just make sure if you are renting via the owner (i.e. VRBO) that it says it comes w/ resort priviliges. P.S. My husband ( a little boy at heart) REALLY wanted to go in the kiddie pool--- it looks awesome!

If you want to be right on the beach, the second (upper) floor, three-bedroom villas in the Mariner's Watch duplexes are lovely - great views and sounds of waves, along with a very private "cottage" feel. The first floor units are equally nice, but will not have the views or the breezes.

For a two-bedroom oceanfront villa in this area, you will be limited to the larger buildings in Windswept ... Still great views, but definitely "condos".

great input!! thanks so much. the first time you ever go to a destination, it is so hit or miss. thanks to all for making it more of a 'hit'. That's exactly the kind of info i was looking for! i'm definitely not a real high-rise kind of person, esp not with young kids. Thanks again.

HaHa! Don't want to lead you wrong. Oceanfront Windswept is NOT a high rise by normal standards! The buildings are just bigger than others on Kiawah, so feel more like condos. You won't be in a high rise anywhere on Kiawah.:-)

I think either 4 or 5 stories is the max on Kiawah...I think it's that building and one more, plus the Sanctuary, that's it.

No highrises here!!!
