About the property

5 BR, 5.5 BA, sleeps 9-12 5000sqft

Our 5 bedroom 5 1/2 bath 5000' Kiawah Low Country home is situated on a lagoon that is teaming with wildlife including many large island birds. The infinity edge pool and hot tub overlook the lagoon. The very quiet and beautiful Walker Cup cul-de-sac has only four houses and no traffic; the beach is just a 3 minute walk along the adjacent historical Vanderhorst Live Oak Allee paved beach path. With an additional security gate at its entrance, Vanderhorst Plantation, named for the first governor of SC and owner of Kiawah Island, is the north eastern half of the island. Vanderhorst offers beautiful homes and the famous Ocean Course, which was the host to the 2012 PGA Tournament. Our elegant but comfortable home and furnishings make this a once in a lifetime family vacation. Your family will want to return year after year.

Walker Cup

  • 5 of 5

Just completed a vacation in this home. It was the best vacation I have ever had. The house is incredible . We had the entire family , 4 adult daughters and husbands and one grand child. The bedrooms, bathrooms . Kitchen , living space and pool area are all better than outstanding. The owner is a real pleasure to deal with. We are already planning our return trip. I would recommend this house to anyonel looking for five star treatment and experience .

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a home for 5 adult couples to spend a golf/beach week at Kiawah. Our criteria in choosing a home was that we wanted 5 bedrooms and 5 baths, something close to the beach and a pool. This home had all of those things and when we arrived, we discovered it had even more. Everyone commented on how well they slept as the beds were very comfortable. Each bathroom is large and some even have special showers! The kitchen is well stocked which made cooking for a group easier. There is an elevator that made loading and unloading a happier chore!

The beach is indeed a quick 3-5 minute walk. We rented bikes from the service the owner recommended and it worked perfectly. We would stay here again! The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. It is a lovely home and a good value.

Absolutely Great House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have for several years had the pleasure oy spending vacation at houses on Kiawah Island. This year from 8/18-8-25 it was 350 Walker Cup. Normally at end of stay off we go to our all parts of our country. This year was different. Adults and grand kids said "Can we come back to this house for our next Kiawah vacation" No greater commendation. It is a home that meets and exceeds expectations.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to drop a quick note to tell you what a wonderful time we had at your's and Carol's beautiful home on Kiawah Island! Your home had absolutely every amenity available, as described, and we enjoyed everything about it from the fabulous pool, hot tub, fully equipped kitchen, and the air conditioned bathroom next to pool area. The proximity to the beach was ideal and made it so enjoyable to be able to stroll there in a few minutes! Your home is beautifully decorated and so well thought-out....from the well-designed floor plan which allows the group to congregate in the family room while cooking to allowing folks to enjoy the privacy in their bedroom suites. (We also thought the built-in cutting board in the counter directly above the garbage cabinet was brilliant!)

We will definitely want to return in the future!

Thank you for the coordination and opening your home for others to enjoy!

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautifully decorated, well-appointed home for our family vacation. We had a group of 12 adults and 2 kids and we were very comfortable. The adults all love to cook and between the beautiful kitchen and large grill, we were able to prepare fabulous dinners. No detail is spared here. Every bedroom was perfectly decorated and everyone got a restful night's sleep. Not to mention poolside! We would spend our early mornings at the beach and come back to the pool to further unwind. It was so dreamy! I really can't say enough about this home. By far THE BEST family vacation we have ever had!
