About The Owner

In order to protect our personal information we are happy to provide further information about ourselves and property upon request. Feel free to email us with any specific questions you may have. We look forward to hearing from you...

Why The Owner chose Kiawah Island

We love the location of our home...its centrally located on the island so you have easy access to the beach, pools, dining, shopping, bike trails, and more. The views are fantastic and our home is on a quiet cul-de-sac so you do not need to worry about traffic and associated noise. Check out our new updates...we love the look and so will you.

What makes this house unique

We chose this home because of its layout...there is plenty of room to gather in the common areas (kitchen, family room, dining room), yet each bedroom is a mini-suite in itself with seating and a private bathroom. You are able to escape to your own bedroom and do not share a bathroom down the hallway. This feature truly feels as though you are on vacation and not in a dormitory.

The Resort Privileges are a must-have for a Kiawah vacation. Enjoy the water park and pools with poolside services, golfing, tennis, dining, transportation, concierge/bell/housekeeping services, discounts, preferred tennis and tee times, grocery services, cashless vacation (charging privileges), and much, much more!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful 60th birthday celebration for me! Having our entire family here was wonderful! Being so close to the beach, riding bikes, enjoying the fun pool at Night Heron Park and just enjoyed being together with family. Many thanks.

Masters Court - Kiawah Island, S.C.

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental site was a perfect location for three generations of our family to celebrate a friend's daughter's wedding on the Island the end of April 2009. Very peaceful setting with resident alligator in lagoon and golf course behind the beautifully appointed house. Large deck with plenty of seating and large comfortable bedrooms with bathrooms and spacious closets, as well as large family gathering places. Within short walking distance of ocean and beach and close to bike path. Our best friends have a home on the Island and would love to swap with the owners. We definitely would rent this house again, as we felt it was perfect for our needs and those of our adult children and their children. This home/location personifies the Kiawah Island experience.

Great for family

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 11, 3 of those under 3, had a wonderful time at the Kiawah home. Every family had its own bedroom and bath and the common living spaces accommodated all of us for gathering and meals. Furnishings were up to date. View of the pond with the visiting alligator provided some good conversations!

Perfect place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I was extremely pleased with my stay at this home on Kiawah Island! My family and I used to vacation in Kiawah for years and finally made it back for a family vacation with all of our significant others. The house was perfect for a group of eight adults and it was a definite plus that there were separate bedroom and bathroom suites for each couple. The kitchen and living space had plenty of room for everyone to hang out and we loved spending time on the deck, grilling, lounging and watching the golfers go by. It was also really convenient to have the beach only a short bike ride away and the various pools and clubhouses accessible as well. I would highly recommend this house for a family vacation with young or older kids!

Comfortable home in Kiawah

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in this home with our daughter and son-in-law and their two toddlers. The home was very baby friendly and comfortable. We especially liked the large kitchen and the comfortable seating in that room. The home was very well-supplied with the necessary amenities. The bedrooms were well-appointed and very tastefully decorated. Our only disappointment was that the fourth bedroom was below the main living level so we couldn't use it for our little ones but an older child would love having this room with their own tv watching area. We especially enjoyed having access to the Night Heron pool complex. And our grandchildren loved the playground and nature center. The location of this home was excellent in terms of being close to the desired areas of the Island. A great location for a Kiawah vacation!

Good location and great owners

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable house located centrally on the island. The house has good flow in the living and cooking area. The house is well equipped and has a great view of the Turtle Point course. The owners were great to work with.

We had a great week! This is a nice home in a great location. The owners are wonderful to work with and communicate, and respond to any inquiries very quickly. My husband and I took both of our mothers and our 3 children for a week in Kiawah. The house is very spacious and has a great view. We loved the big kitchen and large living area! We rode bikes the whole week until mine and my husband's legs didn't respond anymore - but the children were stil ready to keep going! I believe we explored every trail and went to every place you can go by bike in the island. We've always been to Kiawah in the summer and this was our first time in the winter. It was a lot of fun!
