A Great House for a Family

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Kiawah since the mid-1980s and have stayed in many different houses over the years, all of which have had their own special features. This house has a great floorplan for a large family, with lots of space and adequate bathrooms. My husband and I appreciated the downstairs master bedroom with private bath, which gave us our own retreat apart from the children and grandchildren. Other favorite features are the large dining table, which can seat 10 in comfortable upholstered chairs, making it perfect for family game nights as well as meals; the spacious kitchen, in which 3 or 4 people can simultaneously help prepare meals, with plenty of workspace; the large paved driveway and parking, which accommodates 3 cars without having to constantly move them around; the location on a lagoon; and, of course, the nearby beach, to which you can walk almost as quickly as bike. We also enjoyed having 3 living areas (living room, den, and sunroom), which, along with the large back deck, provide separate spaces for reading, watching tv, talking, or just being alone. Finally, this home is the most generous we have ever encountered in being stocked with staples such as detergents, cleaners, garbage bags, paper goods, etc -- as well as quite a few beach towels. Much appreciated! If we had any disappointment, it was the condition of the den sofa, which, while comfortable, could benefit from being recovered.

If you plan to rent beach chairs and umbrellas, Island Beach Services now takes online reservations before you arrive, which is trouble-free. The birthday of one granddaughter often falls during our time at Kiawah; and this year, because we planned several weeks ahead, we enjoyed a wonderful 22nd birthday celebration with her at Husk in Charleston (which has a comfortable bar area in an adjoining house). Wild Olive on Maybank Highway is a good informal Italian restaurant--but, again, if you are a large group, you must reserve a couple of weeks ahead. Kiawah is a special family tradition for us, and this year everything just seemed to come together with no fuss. Thanks, Andy, for helping to make it possible.

Beautiful house for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything that is advertised. We absolutely loved our vacation home for the week. Lots of space for the kids to spread out and separate from us adults. The kitchen is huge and well appointed. Plenty of sleeping space as well.

The views from the deck were great while having the morning coffee. Easy walk to the beach and since this is the more private residential area of the island, there was always plenty of beach to go around.

We had a great vacation and wouldn't hesitate on staying here again. We had only one question for the owner, who responded quickly, taking care of our need.

We would recommend this place to any family that has to accomodate 10 people. They will be comfortable.

Again, we loved the place. Rent this one and enjoy!

A wonderful house in a fabulous location!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights here over Christmas, and it was the best! There were 11 of us ranging in age from 2 to 96, and everyone was delighted. A perfect place for us to gather as a family and enjoy each others company.

The house is spacious and beautiful with multiple common rooms for everyone's pleasure. The kitchen is well appointed, roomy and a pleasure to work in. The weather was unseasonably warm so we rode the waves, built sandcastles and biked long stretches on the beach.

The owner was available and helpful, answering questions and providing information.

My mother-in-law (96) uses a walker, and the first floor bedroom and bathroom were perfect for her.

So many special touches---even a laundry shoot on the 2nd floor!

Highly recommend this property. We'll be back!

Great fun with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

Once again we selected this beautifully appointed home for our family vacation. Our family now ranges from ages 28 to 32. The house has lots of room to spread out but more importantly a great deck on which to gather for our cocktail hour with a beautiful view over the pond and the golf course. The short walk to the beach makes it easy to enjoy a full day at the beach with such easy access. The kitchen is well appointed and the grill is fantastic. Cooking-in was a joy. We split time with family and adult friends (with two master suites it making sharing the house easy). We are repeat vacationers to this house and hope for many more visits.

Room to Relax and More

  • 5 of 5

While the pictures are great, they do not do justice to the spaciousness of this wonderful home. Our family of 10 - 2 daughters, their husbands, and their daughters, ages 8 & 11 and 9 & 12 - had lots of room to spread out and share conversation and fun. The kitchen was perfect for multiple cooks; the living room was great for our crowd enjoying the World Cup and all the windows provided great opportunities to enjoy the beautiful landscaping, the 12th hole of Cougar Point and our "neighbor", the alligator(s).

The owner was great about answering questions before our arrival and responding to a call while we were at his home. The location was excellent - close to the beach and close to shopping at Fresh Fields. We rented bikes from Alligator Bikes and found the bikes (and adult trike) delivered to our doorstep when we arrived.

None of our 4 granddaughters wanted to leave on Saturday. The 12-year-old said she loved "all the activities". They had fished with their dads, kayaked with their moms, played in the surf, ridden their bikes along the trails, flown kites on the beach, enjoyed the Thursday night "dive-in" at The Sanctuary, devoured meals at Chez Fish, the Oceans Clubhouse, and the Loggerhead Grille. The quiet cul-de-sac where the house is located provided a great spot for the girls to ride their bikes while they waited for the next activity.

My only reservation about the home had been its lack of a screened porch. I need not have worried. The deck was a great spot for relaxing with a drink before dinner - it was mosquito free - and had beautiful views of the natural setting, with blue heron, egrets and alligators to entertain (as well as a possible bobcat sighting).

I would definitely recommend this property.

Plenty of space to rest & relax!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was a great experience, start to finish. Andy was quick to respond to my multiple questions before we rented, very accommodating and gave me tons of information about the house before we arrived.

The house exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and had more than enough space for my husband and I, our 2 sons (ages 11 & 17), and my parents. The kitchen was large enough for all of us to be in there at the same time and had plenty of dishes, silverware, pots and pans and every sort of kitchen utensil imaginable. The multiple seating areas downstairs gave everyone room to spread out and the large dining room table plus kitchen breakfast area would easily provide sit-down table space for a group twice as large as ours. My Mom and Dad stayed in the downstairs bedroom suite and they were very comfortable.

Upstairs are 4 very nicely appointed and comfortable bedrooms. Plenty of towels and quality linens! Outside there is a large upstairs deck accessible from the bedrooms. Downstairs there is another large deck with comfy lounge chairs and a table and chairs. Steps lead to the back lovely yard and a great view of the pond/lagoon where we were constantly entertained by the birds and various wildlife, including 5 deer who came right up to the back porch one night while we were there! Another favorite entertainer was "Walter", the HUGE (I'm not exaggerating) alligator living in the pond that we named during our visit. We admired him often but from a great distance.

Also available was a great gas grill, and garage space for our car. There were a couple of bikes in the garage as well as lots of beach chairs and beach towels. The house is just an easy block from the beach and there's a community pool available to use. All in all we were extremely pleased with our vacation and our choice in renting this house. Thank you again, Andy, we truly hope to rent from you again.
