About Erin

Aside from managing my family's rental property, I am a part-time Physical Therapist for my community's school system. In addition, I have two teenage daughters who play sports. Like many people, we are very busy and treasure our family vacation time together. We understand this time is very important to our guests as well. We work hard to minimize issues and we partner with on-island property management. I will be your personal point of contact throughout the booking process and during your stay. Please take a moment to look at our 60+ 5-Star reviews.

Erin purchased this house in 2006

Why Erin chose Vanderhorst Plantation

We love Kiawah! My family has been coming here since the mid 90's. We often travel with large groups, other family members, friends, young children and grandparents. We wanted to build a home close to the beach that would accommodate these groups. The design incorporates large gathering spaces but also private areas to get away and relax. The spacious layout with the main house and guest house centered around the pool is perfect for this.

What makes this house unique

This is a family run business and we take personal pride in making sure all of our guests have a wonderful time. We are constantly making improvements, most recently we added KitchenAid appliances, a 60" 4K TV and Sonos Home Theater system, great for movie night. As I mentioned, the home has a perfect layout for large groups and we are close to the beach. I hope you will consider our home for your next visit to Kiawah! -Erin

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed at Kiawah 15 times since the early 80's with this time being the first with our daughters and their families, including three grandchildren. The Duncan's home is overall the nicest accommodation that we have rented there. It is a perfect design for multiple families with young children, as well as a great location for easy beach and bike trail access.

Erin Duncan was excellent to work with, particularly her quick responses to all questions.

We were totally satisfied with this rental.

Beautiful home, excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Winter Break at this property. With 5 bedrooms and spacious living spaces, the house was big enough to comfortably accommodate our family of nine. The kitchen is big, well designed and well equipped. The breakfast table was large enough for all of us to eat our informal meals together. We only used the formal dining room for our Christmas dinner.

Although we remember Kiawah being warmer during Christmases past, my grandchildren enjoyed the heated swimming pool and the playroom in the guest’s wing of the house. The beach was a very short walk away and we all loved biking, strolling, and playing soccer there.

Erin, the owner, was gracious and helpful. She responded to all our communications immediately and made sure we didn’t have any difficulty during our vacation. We all hope we can return to this house.

Amazing Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home the week of Thanksgiving. From start to finish, things couldn't have been better. Erin was delightful to work with and quick to respond to my questions. The house was perfect for us. We had 4 adult children ages 19-26 and the guest house was perfect for the 3 boys. The house was clean and well equipped to make a Thanksgiving feast! We will definitely be returning for future vacations. It was truly one of our best family vacations!!

clean, spacious and inviting

  • 4 of 5

My adult family and I spent a lovely week in this spacious home. We enjoyed the proximity to the beach, the heated pool and the well-equipped kitchen. The house was comfortable, in a quiet area and the ideal place for our family reunion. Be aware that it's necessary to bring the basics when it comes to things like soap, shampoo, cleaning products and paper/plastic goods.

We are now providing shampoo and soap in each bathroom and a starter pack in the kitchen. A detailed list is included in the Welcome Packet. We hope you consider our home for your next family reunion!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean with plenty of room for multiple families to spread out. Great location on island! 5 minute bike ride to beach. The pool is a great size and kept kids entertained in down time.
