Looking forward to our trip for the CABA world series and are researching condo/villa opportunities to make it into more of a vacation and also be able to cook/grill and spread out a little.

We haven't been to the area but hear wonderful things. Have found some particularly interesting properties at Turtle Point at Kiawah Beach.

If anyone has suggestions about property locations (the fields seem to be spread all over the place) or places to avoid, we would really appreciate it.

Well, Kiawah is NOT one of the places to avoid!

Friends that have spent a week in a condo there say you don't have to stay right on the beach, like you would tend to think when staying at the beach, but a block away is ok. Take bikes (and golf clubs and tennis rackets). Be sure to tour Charleston, which is very walkable, but parking is tough. Check www.tripadvisor.com for the latest best restaurants to visit. When we visited Kiawah from downtown Charleston, it seems like it took about an 45-60 min? Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, Wild Dunes are other options.
You would be better off staying at the Isle of Palms...Kiawah is a heck of a trek into say Mt Pleasant or into North Charleston where if the Diamond Devils are hosting I imagine your games are gonna be...I would say a good 45 hard minutes to Mt P in good traffic...give an hour to North Charleston....Isle palms is nice you can rent houses right on the beach and your 10 mins into Mt Pleasant and 20-25 to North Charleston...just my opinion much better for travelling to and from fields...now if you have extra time before or after your tourney then i highly recommend Kiawah or Seabrook...keep in mind the closest fast food place will be about 25 mins and thats limited to just a couple choices...there has been a new big development close to Kiawau and Seabrook which has stores and shops and grocery stores...

Thanks very much! We actually found a terrific deal in Mount Pleasant. We'll get to the beach when we have an opportunity, but on a daily basis we'll be very centrally located which will be good with fields spread all over the area. The local chambers of commerce were very helpful, too.
Lots of great places to eat. If you have questions, please feel free to pm me? My son just finished first year at The Citadel so I have become very familiar with Charleston and surrounding area. Downtown is a great experience for all ages. Also the Riverdogs games are a great fun time. Easy beach access and a great beach. Have a great time. Visiting The Citadel is a great experience for anyone who has never been. It is a unique college experience.
