Overview

About the property

Recently updated 4 Bedroom, 3 Bath home close to beach (Sleeps 11)

Welcome to Kiawah Island, friends! This is the perfect home for families and quiet get aways!

Conveniently located in the beautiful West Beach Village of Kiawah Island, this spacious home is great for vacations - bring the family and friends. This beautiful, newly decorated home has hardwood floors and is located on a very quiet secluded family friendly cul-du-sac, surrounded by large Live Oak and Palm trees. This home offers the feeling of seclusion as it has a natural surrounding, but easy access to all the action. A new swimming pool and expansive deck, complete in early March 2015, is right out your back door and if you walk another 30 feet you can access 25 miles of bike trails to jog and explore. We have 6 adult bikes and 1 child's bike available for your use. There are also 4 beach chairs and a beach umbrella available.

*Please note that the pool is available April 1-Oct. 31. For the weeks of April 1 - May 15 and Sept. 15 - Oct. 31, there will be a pool heating fee if guests request that the pool is heated. The pool heating fee is $245/week or $35/day. The pool can also be heated in the off months pending weather conditions.

This home makes a perfect home base, whether you like to kayak and explore the tributaries of the Kiawah river, play tennis at the West Beach Tennis Club (5 minute walk), play basketball / volleyball / soccer at Night Heron Park, or play golf at one of the nationally recognized golf courses. If your thing is to shop you have the straw market (5 minute walk away), Freshfield's Shopping Village (2 miles away) or beautiful Charleston (25 miles away). And of course, the beach: shelling, sun bathing, walking, swimming, surfing, or just reading a good book on one of the least busy stretches of beach on Kiawah.

Enjoy coffee and breakfast poolside in your own backyard! Or after a half day at the beach, come home to a relaxing afternoon by the pool. We have an outdoor dining table that seats 6 and a bistro table that seats 2 more. There are 8 lounge chairs and various pool toys that are there for you to enjoy.

** Please note the pool is closed from Nov.1 - March 30** If there is unusually warm weather, we would consider heating the pool for a fee. Please feel free to inquire if that is of interest to you in the off season months**

Wherever you find yourself on the island, this comfortable home will welcome you back.

The spacious family room affords a nice open floor plan wih plenty of room for everyone to hang out. Or, just take in a movie on the 50' HDTV after a busy day on the beach. The adjoining dining room has table seating for 8 plus 4 bar stools at the kitchen counter! A newly renovated kitchen, equipped with stainless appliances, granite countertops and tile backsplash has a large eat-in bar/island making serving easy. In the morning enjoy your coffee on the screened in porch - just off the dining room. The master bedroom has a king size bed with attached full bath. The 2nd bedroom has a king bed and a bunkbed, the 3rd bedroom has a queen bed and these 2 bedrooms share a large, full bath. The 4th bedroom has a bunk beds and a day bed so sleeps 3.

After a busy day on the beach this house offers an outdoor enclosed shower. The propane grill is always ready for your use. The island offers wonderful children's camps filled with exciting daily activities and excursions. A marina with deep-sea fishing and sailing charters is located at the nearby Bohicket Marina. Easy access to the city of Charleston is a great addition to your vacation. Fine restaurants are present on the island as well as in the city.

FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE THIS HOME HAS WIRELESS INTERNET SERVICE AND CABLE TV AVAILABLE IN THE GREAT ROOM AND ALL BEDROOMS.

This home is managed by the homeowner but we have a 24 hour local emergency service. We are here to help assure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. The home is equipped with all the comforts of home.

Our family has enjoyed and cherished our time on Kiawah for over 30 years. We have put together a welcome package that you will receive a few weeks prior to your stay with information on the house and on the island, including various places to eat and visit. We note our personal favorites!

About Vivian and Mark Munson

Our family has enjoyed and cherished our time on Kiawah for over 30 years. Our family and extended family have grown up with many fond memories at Kiawah! Please call with any questions. Vivian 704-661-7551

Why Vivian and Mark Munson chose West Beach

We chose West Beach because of its convenient location. We're a bike ride away form everything...the beach, restaurants, great shopping, and Bohicket Marina. Once you get to Kiawah, you don't have to drive much farther to get to this home! And we like the quiet cul-de-sac.

What makes this house unique

Don't pack the following items because they are included: 6 bicycles, 2 beach umbrellas, 4 beach chairs, 2 body surfing boards, bath towels, linens and a blow dryer is included in each of the 3 bathrooms. The kitchen is fully stocked. Also included: free Wi-Fi.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Relax, play golf, ride bikes to beach, and enjoy fall on Kiawah Island

  • 5 of 5

Lovely location and the pool with water fall feature is awesome.

Short walk or bike ride to ocean and easy access to Fresh Fields for shopping. Only a 2 mile bike ride to town; 2.4 miles to Bohicket Marina.

Plenty of beds and bikes. Great family vacation spot.

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 4 of 5

While older than we thought, the home was well designed for flow and ease of use. The pool area was magnificent for celebrating our son’s 40th birthday with family and close friends. When everyone left, the two of us had 3 1/2 days to ourselves and, again, the house was just right.

Great location and adorable cozy feel...but a few problems.

  • 3 of 5

Our visit surrounded a girls' business get together. We were looking forward to watching a virtual live stream of a national event, riding bikes, and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

First of all, the house is adorable. We all appreciated the fact that there weren't a lot of stairs to get into the home.

We were surprised to find no ice in the freezer, along with no working ice maker, that the door knob fell off, that there were cobwebs on the patio furniture, as well as hanging from the ceiling in the living room ( which might just be part of the Kiawah experience) however, one would expect that these little annoyances would have been addressed before our arrival. We found it necessary to empty the dishwasher, and put towels the in the dryer, which none of us expected. The pool was not heated but could have been if we had wanted to pay an extra fee, though the home is listed as having a heated pool. When we went to use the bikes we found that many of them had problems and were not ridable...chains kept falling off.

Fortunately some one was sent over almost immediately to remedy the problems, who along with the owner, could not have been nicer. We liked being so close to the entrance and close to shopping etc. Again, adorable home....just a bit disappointing!

Owner's Response: Hi Susie. I’m so sorry to read about your disappointments. Our reviews lately have been so positive so to get one like this is a surprise to us. We try to make it known that there is a fee for the pool heating. It is in the main description of our home as well as in a couple of other places in the description. Not everyone wants the pool heated and just want to enjoy sitting by it so we leave it as an option for our guests instead of including it in the rental amount for everyone. We do plan to address the concerns about the dishwasher and dryer. That should not have happened but I believe it’s because our usual cleaning lady whom we love and adore has gone on sick leave and in the end she was having helpers come in for her. This is probably the reason for the spiderwebs as well. We now have a new housekeeper and we will make sure she knows how to leave the house each week. I believe you met Marissa, whom I hired when my housekeeper was leaving. She helps with the yard and various extra things. I sent her over right away to look at the icemaker and then was told it still was not working. When the repair company came out a few days later they said it was working so I believe Marissa was able to fix it but it may have taken a day or so to start making ice again. I felt bad about this inconvenience, offered to bring bags if ice, and in the end I deducted money off of your bill. I had no idea about the other concerns. The bicycles are a double edge sword. We get rave reviews for providing bicycles and people have said that they have never rented a home that came with bicycles. They require a lot of maintenance because of the salt water and air. We advertise six bicycles but I actually have 9 or 10 there, so that there are always some back up bicycles. I hope there were at least six working bicycles when you were there. I have some great take away from your comments. I will have Marissa check the bicycles each week and put any non-working one(s) in the back of the garage until she can work on them. We will always look for cobwebs and spiderwebs inside and out (And yes they are common to Kiawah. We have been in homes there before that had cobwebs all over outside. It was very creepy and I have always asked our housekeeper to make sure that there are no spiderwebs outside under the roofline or around doorways at our house on Kiawah). Thank you for the great feedback.

Fantastic Family Experience

  • 5 of 5

The home was warm and welcoming and had everything we needed for a great family vacation. The bedrooms were comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, the kitchen table seated eight and was perfect for playing games. The pool setting was lush. The trees are just beautiful. There were bikes for everyone and we biked all over the place. The house is very close to West Beach and the Straw Market - both are walkable or bikeable. The owners are very attentive and accommodating. This was really our best home rental vacation ever and we now prefer Kiawah to OBX or the Cape.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

Second time to stay at this property. Nice-easy bike ride to the beach, so great to have the garage space for unloading and storing our beach gear. Also a plus to have extra bikes and chairs to use during our stay. Pool is nice after a day at the beach! Owner is very responsive. Perfect for our family of 4.

Map

This home is located in a quiet cul-de-sac within the West Beach area. There is a heated pool (available April 1 - Oct.31). The pool can be heated during the off-season for a fee pending on the weather at that time. We are a short walk or bike ride to the bike path, shops, restaurants and the beach.
