Kiawah Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This new (2006) courtyard style home offers the best of everything. The outdoor-living spaces are as fabulous as the indoor areas. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac inside the Vanderhorst Plantation, this 5,376 square foot home (4,176 interior & 1,200 covered decks) offers 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and is only a short walk to the beach. It is the ideal getaway location for a family reunion or multi-family vacation.

Walk through the mahogany front door to your own private sanctuary. The columned gallery leads you to the courtyard with its lush vegetation. A beautiful, private pool invites you to relax. To one side is the main house, to the other is the three bedroom, three bath guest house. The 2nd story of the guest house also includes a large living room with plasma tv, card table, built-in cabinet w/ refrigerator and covered balcony overlooking the private heated pool.

The main house has two huge master suites with king beds. Spacious spa like bathrooms with large separate tiled walk-in showers and soaking tubs adjoin each bedroom. The large living room features a built-in media center, plasma screen TV and fireplace. Guests can dine in the formal dining room or the roomy breakfast area. The beautifully designed and equipped kitchen will satisfy the casual or gourmet cook. While enjoying your morning coffee or throughout the day, open the French doors to watch the sunrise or catch the evening breeze. Hardwood floors can be found throughout both professionally decorated houses.

We have vacationed at Kiawah 15 times since the early 80's with this time being the first with our daughters and their families, including three grandchildren. The Duncan's home is overall the nicest accommodation that we have rented there. It is a perfect design for multiple families with young children, as well as a great location for easy beach and bike trail access.
Erin Duncan was excellent to work with, particularly her quick responses to all questions.
We were totally satisfied with this rental.

Another Great Family Trip to Kiawah in the Best House on the Island

We have rented this house several times and hands down Erin Duncan is the best host of any VRBO house I have ever stayed in. We have rented several houses in Kiawah and nothing compares to 147 Hooded Merganser. There is nothing more disappointing than flying all the way from the west coast and showing up to an undesirable property. This certainly is never the case with the Duncan's beach house. The house is always spotless (kudos to the cleaning crew) and in perfect condition. As a matter of fact I think the house looks the same now (if not better) as the first time we visited it over 6 years ago. This house is perfectly set up for families with children or just a couple that wants to get away for a week. It has everything you want, privacy, plenty of room, unbelievably comfortable beds and elegant furnishings. The kitchen is set up with everything you need, so there is nothing you need to bring. Unlike most places we have rented I noticed that the Duncan's actually have put some upgrades in the house rather than just keeping it as a "rental property". The new copper drainage gutters along with the new grill and patio furniture are a very nice touch that added to many memorable happy hours in the courtyard (My favorite part of the house). I love to sit in the courtyard or the covered patio at night and listen to the waves crashing on the beach. The beach is just far enough away that you don't have to deal with the wind or the ocean spray, but a beautiful 2 to 3 minute bike ride.
This year we brought some friends out from Phoenix who have never been to South Carolina. They feel in love with Kiawah and the house. They have plans to come back and rent the house next spring. There was plenty of room for the adults and the children. This house has a perfect set up with the adults staying in the 2 master suites in the main house and the children staying in the guest house. The kids spent many hours swimming in the heated pool.
I would highly recommend this house. There is no doubt in my mind that the only house I will ever rent in Kiawah.

Fabulous

We had a family reunion (with new granddaughter) at this lovely house for a week. We had our adult children and their wives and girlfriends. The house was perfect -- large enough for everyone to have their own space -- yet warm and cozy for family games in the living room, kitchen, or pool-side. Erin and family are wonderful hosts. We were treated like good friends throughout the rental process and stay in the home. We thoroughly enjoyed every nook and cranny of this great house. I'd recommend it to any and all.

Wow Find Your Bit of Heaven At This Home!

This gorgeous, yet exceedingly comfortable, home was fabulous for our multigenerational family. The unique layout provided ample space for us to gather in the kitchen, the great room and around the lovely pool. The spacious bedrooms are split between the two houses and allowed for both privacy and quiet time away from the crowd. What a treat!

Erin was fantastic and very attentive to us before, during and after our visit. She is friendly, yet professional, thorough, and very responsive to our questions.

What an awesome experience we had at Kiawah. Thank you Erin, for sharing your fantastic home with us. It was definitely the best vacation ever!

GREAT Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 25, 2013

We just returned from a wonderful family vacation with our adult children, the spouses of our married kids and our five grandchildren (ages 16, 14, 12, 3.5, and 2). There were 12 of us all together. The layout of the Duncan home is wonderful... plenty of space for quiet time and reading, if that's what you are looking for, as well as gathering space for meals and just plain fun. It's a great house for playing hide-n-seek (adults and kids alike) as an evening activity. Trust me on this - it's become a hilariously funny event on our family vacations and you should try it.

Most of our time at the house was spent either gathered in the very spacious kitchen and breakfast area or around the courtyard and salt-water pool. After a day at the beach, being able to wash the sand off in the outside shower, and then falling into the pool was glorious.

Erin was phenomenal to work with and we appreciated the call from her on arrival to make sure all was well and determine if we had any questions.

A couple of tips... be sure to rent bikes and have some kind of cart for shlepping things back and forth to the beach. We had three bikes but that wasn't enough. We could have used at least 2 and possibly 3 more. It's an easy as well as beautiful walk to the beach, (everything is flat and paved) but it is still about 1/2 a mile and there is no parking by the beach access, so biking or walking are your options. Also, both entrances to the house are via at least 10+ stairs. If carrying groceries, use the staircase in the garage as it enters the first floor laundry room and is closest to the kitchen. Speaking of groceries, be sure to use the Market at Fresh Fields Village. It''s very high quality and the prices are very fair.

Kiawah Island is a family friendly vacation destination that you won't regret going to and the Duncan home just tops off the whole experience. The Duncans have gone to great lengths to make it beautiful, relaxing, and most welcoming. Research the Kiawah website for all the things you can do before you arrive so you have a plan. There's more than you can possibly do in one week. Also, know what you will be doing for supper your first night. No one delivers pizza (that we could find anyway).

Above all - ENJOY!!!! You'll make many memories here. I have 1800+ pictures to prove it.
