Overview

Kiawah Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Our Vanderhost Plantation beach house is located at 23 Bufflehead Drive, a quiet residential street located beyond the second security gate and a convenient 8 minute walk to the beach.

As you enter the front door, you're impressed by a feeling of open space and natural light. High ceilings, hardwood floors, bead-board wainscoting and beautiful custom cabinetry painted a pale sun-washed color, create the perfect setting for your beach vacation with family and friends. The large great room on the main floor over-looks an outdoor screened-in-porch and deck with salt-water pool, built in gas grill, wi-fi and stereo with built in speakers throughout the house. As you stand on the back deck overlooking the tranquil lagoon surrounded by palm trees and dense shrubbery you'll understand why we always look forward to our next visit. Heading back inside to the kitchen you'll find yourself surrounded by an abundance of cabinet space, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf range/ovens and a Bosch dishwasher. The island is spacious and serves as a convenient location for meal prep or extra seating. The adjacent dining area seats 10 comfortably and the outdoor covered deck also has an expandable table that seats up to 10 for Al fresco dining. A flat screen TV, stereo, and DVD are situated at the far end of the great room with plenty of overstuffed couches to accommodate family and guests.

The spacious first floor master suite has a restful. 'beachy' feel, with French doors opening to the back deck, high ceilings, flat screen TV, in ceiling stereo speakers and beautifully appointed bath area. Also on the first floor is a full size laundry room and access to the basement and garage area which is equipped with table tennis and foosball tables. Basement has commercial size dehumidifier for year round game playing comfort.

The second floor opens to an upstairs family room with comfortable seating area, flat screen TV, stereo game console, in-ceiling speakers and separate PC room with desk and internet connections, fax/copy machine. Four bedrooms are located off this area. One BR has two twin beds and the other three have queen beds, large closets for storage and their own bath-rooms. At the end of a busy day swimming, golfing, playing tennis, or riding bikes, you'll find that there's no better place to catch up on your sleep!

Why The Owner chose Kiawah Island

We wanted a spot that we could gather with family and friends and walk to the beach, golf, tennis, or fishing. A special place that was quiet but surrounded by natural scenery with access to all the amenities one can find on Kiawah Island.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Jerry's home is a "10". Location, layout, decorating, lagoon view (with alligators), pool, deck, kitchen, furnishings, accessories etc. all are first class. The home is very well maintained. The carts, chairs and umbrella made the walk to the beach a breeze. Our grandchildren couldn't get enough of the pool. Our family, imported from 3 states, could not have asked for any better accommodations. We hope to return.

Great space!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family loved the open kitchen/living room. Nice pool, deck and screened in porch. The ride to the beach isn't too far, even with toddlers. Well equipped kitchen with top appliances. We look forward to staying here again. The owner was very helpful.

Secluded Luxury!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are long time vrbo renters and I can say, without hesitation, that this property has to be one of the most luxurious and comfortable that we have ever stayed in. Great layout for one or two families. There are four bedrooms upstairs, each with their own bathroom. There is also a comfortable den upstairs for games/reading/X-box time. Downstairs is the master bedroom suite, large living/dining area and kitchen. High ceilings throughout add to an already spacious feeling. The deck and swimming pool are fabulous. The house backs to a lagoon (with no houses in view out the back) so you literally feel as if you are on your own island. That said, the house is relatively convenient to the beach and the owner provides ample beach fixings (lounge chairs with ottomans, umbrella, beach toys, beach buggie for transport, etc.). You should plan to rent or bring bikes as bike paths and nature trails on the island are incredible. The garage/ground floor is also packed full of fun for the family - regulation ping pong and foosball tables and a pop-a-shot basketball game that we enjoyed. The kitchen comes very well equiped and the dinning room had ample seating for my large family. The downstairs living room has an impressive flatscreen TV with surround sound speakers that provide a theater feel. Absolutely loved this house and would recommend it to anybody looking for comfort, convenience, and luxury all in one package.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 6 adults and 4 children just got back from a truly wonderful stay in Kiawah at Jerry's beautiful house. There was plenty of room and privacy for all, though we spent most of our at home time gathered in the comfortable great room/kitchen, swimming in the pool or relaxing in the screened in porch. Pool alarms totally my initial concern about staying there with toddlers. And getting all of us to the beach (with a LOT of gear) was a snap given carts, chairs, etc. on hand. We celebrated both my 3 year old's birthday and our 8th wedding anniversary while there and the house definitely lived up to our hopes for a fantastic place for both. Highly recommend!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful week at 23 Buffelhead. This was our third trip to Kiawah and our favorite place yet! We loved swimming in the pool while watching alligators in the lagoon. A very quick bike ride to the beach. Overall a beautiful home in an ideal location!

OUTSTANDING!

  • 5 of 5

As a first time VRBO user, I was pleased with the ease of searching for appropriate properties and especially impressed with the cooperation and assistance of the owner, Jerry Geraghty. His helpful hints and suggestions enhanced our stay and golf play in Kiawah. This pristine and luxurious property comfortably accommodated our party of nine adults, and the home was more spacious than the photos indicate. The well appointed kitchen and top of the line barbecue grill offered ease in meal preparation for the days we chose to dine at home. The toiletries found in each of the bathrooms were much appreciated and reminiscent of those found in fine hotels. Although the photos more than accurately portray this fine home, it is even more impressive than shown with high ceilings, exquisite woodwork, and attention to detail in all facets of the design.

It was most helpful to have made our tee times on all five of the courses and restaurant reservations two months in advance so there was no disappointment in missing the best of Kiawah and Charleston. We ordered our groceries online at the Piggly Wiggly in St. Johns and the order was ready for pickup upon our designated arrival. It does not get much easier than that!

I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and relatives and already have shared information regarding this spectacular home and gracious owners to others. Since this vacation was extraordinary, we do plan to return next year.
