Guestbook comments from the owner

The amenities were very nice and the pool was heated. Obviously a lot of care goes into maintaining this home. Having rented many over the years on Kiawah, this was by far the best. First time renting outside the resort and the experience was easy and flawless. Finally, the owner was very nice and accommodating.

Great house, great location.

  • 4 of 5

We had 6 adults and 5 teenagers for Beach Week. We cooked in and had good times together. It was close to the beach and we came back each day to enjoy the pool.

We loved our stay. The home is beautiful, spacious and in a great location. The owner was great to work with and immediately helped us with a few of our questions. They even gave us great weather. 5 stars all the way around!

This home was absolutely perfect for our four families. With a bunk room for the 6 boys, a room for the 2 girls and nice rooms for the couples, but still plenty of hang out space, we had a great vacation. The house was beautiful and outfitted nicely. The outdoor covered porch and pool was an all day hang out area when we didn't take advantage of the short bike ride to the beach. Add a ping pong table to the basement and we would have never left!

Great Kiawah Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this home in mid-March. We shared the home with another family, totaling four adults and six children.

The location was very good in Vanderhorst Plantation. We always prefer Vanderhorst because it is much less crowded than the rest of Kiawah. There are only single-family homes in Vanderhorst (no condos), so the density is very low. Accordingly, the beaches are never crowded. The street this house is on is quiet with no traffic. The home was very private and overlooked a lagoon. The walk to the beach took about 10-12 minutes along a nice pathway. The walk is a just a bit further than it might appear on the map as you have to walk up the street to get to a bridge to cross the lagoon. There was one road crossing to get to the beach. Nonetheless, the walk was very easy and pleasant even for the children.

The house itself was beautiful and much larger than we had anticipated. The finishes are top-notch and the home was very clean. The kitchen is roomy and easily allows one to cook for a crowd. The bedrooms are all very private. Four of the bedrooms have a private bath and two share a Jack and Jill bath. The top-level "bunk room" was a favorite for the kids. There is an elevator providing access from the ground-level garage to the first and second floors of the house.

There is a private pool which we paid to have heated. That worked out great for the kids as the ocean was still quite cold.

Overall we would certainly recommend this home!

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a BEAUTIFUL well equipped property on a quiet street. The home was bright and decorated tastefully and the beds were comfortable and clean. The owners paid special attention to detail with up to date electronics and up to date appliances and amenities.

This being our first trip to Kiawah, the owners Sherri and Ben, were very responsive and extremely helpful in guiding us on must sees, in the community and outside in downtown Charlestown. We only ventured out of the community once since there was so much to do and spent much of our time biking the scenic paths/beach, golfing, fishing and hanging out on the beach and pool.

The pool was clean and perfect for our children to unwind after a day on the beach. The kitchen is extremely well appointed and we enjoyed dinners on the expansive deck and star gazing on the upper deck at night. The owners were easy to work with and made our stay extra special. We highly recommend this house, especially if it is your first time to Kiawah. You will not be disappointed and we will certainly stay there again.
