About Matthew Harmody
We live in North Carolina, about a four-hour drive to Kiawah Island. We have two teenage boys who are very active in sports. I work in the medical field and my wife leads our homeschooling efforts.
Matthew Harmody purchased this House in 2007
Why Matthew Harmody chose Vanderhorst Plantation
We first fell in love with Kiawah several years ago when we took our first trip there, a large extended family during Thanksgiving. We bought our first home there shortly thereafter. We have had many fond memories watching our boys grow up there, as well as with extended family and friends. A frequent question in our household is, 'When's our next trip to Kiawah?', oftentimes before we've even left Kiawah!

Great location and property
My family and I enjoyed staying in this spacious property. It was a short walk to the beach with a lovely view of the lagoon. We loved sitting in the room overlooking the lagoon to read and watch the wildlife. We rented bikes for the week and this was a great spot from which to explore. Some small problems that we had (such as the ice maker jamming) were taken care of quickly. We really enjoyed our vacation.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We certainly hope that you can return in the near future.
Very close to the beach, very clean, friendly rental company, owners were easy to work with. The property is ideal for families. We look forward to our next visit.
This house was in the perfect location. Just steps from the beach. We loved the pond in back.
The house has plenty of room. The beds were comfortable.
The kitchen is not well appointed with cook wear or gadgets (there was only one chefs knife), and the dining table seats only 6.
However, I was glad we were close to the beach which is fabulous!
Thank you for your review of our home!! We always appreciate feedback from our guests! We are glad you enjoyed you stay on Kiawah and the home. The island is just beautiful!
We appreciate the comments about the cookware and gadgets. We don't cook often when we are on the island, but it is nice to know what additional things are helpful to our guests. We hope the seating was adequate. We find that the additional seating in the adjacent sunroom and the barstools in the kitchen seat our large crowd comfortably in one area. However, we understand the feel of everyone around one table!!
Thank you again for your comments! We hope you visit Kiawah Island again soon!!
Kiawah Island Home
Very nice home. Well maintained. Lots of room. Good location across the street from beach access. We especially enjoyed watching the wildlife on the lagoon from the back deck.
We will definitely want to come back.
We really appreciate your kind remarks!
Relaxing at Kiawah
The beach house was spacious and well-equipped. During the week we went out to eat only occasionally and found everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals and snacks!
We were delighted with how convenient it was to the beach. Although we could not see the ocean, we were as close as some rental units which are on the beach! The view of the lagoon was beautiful. With many large windows, we enjoyed the view throughout the day!
The owners provided immediate response when there was air-conditioning problem on one level. It was repaired within hours.
We had 5 adults and a baby. Having 3 1/2 bathrooms made the entire visit comfortable for everyone! We enjoy the bike trails and they were convenient and fun for all of us.
We would recommend this home to anyone and we hope to return to it perhaps even at another season!
We certainly appreciate your very positive comments!
