Vanderhorst Plantation House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, Sleeps 18

Two houses in one! This unique Kiawah Island vacation rental combines two individual homes in one building, connected by a spacious deck. This property is unique on Kiawah, combining space for large gatherings with ample privacy. Few other rentals offer six bedrooms each with its own full bathroom, as well as two half baths off of the entry foyers. This home is the ideal spot for golf groups, family reunions, multi-generations, or two families wishing to vacation together.

This home has two kitchens, two dining rooms, two living rooms, two garages, and multiple decks! The home was extensively renovated in 2006 & 2007, with upgrades to the bathrooms, new kitchens and furniture.

This residence greets you, at either entrance, with beautiful staircases that will lead you to additional floors off one way, and leads you into the cozy living rooms the opposite way, in both sections of the house. When you enter the home, the dining rooms, the kitchens, the main living spaces, and the master suites are all on the entry level floor. The lovely dining rooms offer a large table with seating for 6 and 3 stools at the kitchen bar. The fully equipped kitchens showcase custom cabinetry, beautiful countertops as well as a bar that connects the kitchen to the dining room. The light-filled living rooms host cozy sofas and chairs, relaxing window seat overlooking the deck and the golf course just beyond the backyard, a flat-screen TV , and DVD player for your favorite movies. The living rooms also have games and speakers for additional entertainment. Down the hall, from the living room on either side is the incredibly spacious master suite boasting a king bed on one side and a queen on the other, sitting area, flat-screen TV and DVD player in both. Both sides have large bathrooms connected to the master suites with double sinks, roomy shower, and tubs with jets to help you really relax.

Ascend the stairs to the second floor and you are greeted by a hallway. At the end of the hallway you are given access to a small porch on the front of the house, with a small putting green included! There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms on each side of the home, so 4 bedrooms total on the second floor. Two rooms feature 2 queen beds and a TV each. The bathroom connected to these rooms has a shower and a tub, separately placed in the bathrooms and two sinks in each. Two additional rooms have one queen bed and TV each; the bedrooms each have a bathroom with shower and one sink.

The home is furnished with washer, dryer, and high speed wireless internet. Pets are welcome for an additional fee of $25 per day.

Located in the secluded Ocean Green section of the Vanderhorst Plantation, the home is ideally located. The neighborhood swimming pool, available only to residents and guests of the Ocean Green community, is next door. The decks look out on the Jack Nicklaus designed Turtle Point golf course and has two gas grills, one for each home. The beach is an easy seven minute stroll across the golf course.

During your stay on Kiawah Island, be sure to enjoy biking on the 30 miles of flat bike trails, golfing on one of five world-class courses, playing tennis, crabbing, fishing, swimming, and boating. Many families also enjoy the kids’ camp and nature programs at Night Heron Park.

Kiawah Island is about 40 minutes from historic Charleston, famous for incredible shopping, galleries, antique stores, museums, the South Carolina Aquarium, horse-drawn carriage rides, historic landmarks, and sumptuous dining.

Rates may change prior to booking and do not include fees and taxes.

A $45 non-refundable damage fee is charged to each reservation.

Stays of 3 nights or less will be charged an additional fee for housekeeping.

spacious with pool access

  • 5 of 5

This place worked very well for our stay. The rooms were all very comfortable. We did end up needing more towels (there were a lot of us) but one call to the office and they were dropped off within an hour. The kids loved the pool access. We appreciated the good customer service and were very satisfied with our vacation.

2 families, 1 vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this home and it was perfect for mine and my best friends family. We had multiple kitchens if we wanted to cook separately and a big enough space if we wanted to cook and eat together. Also loved the pool.

Rating Details:

The property manager was very helpful.

The vacation rental was very clean.

I was very happy with the location.

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

Family vacation here was terrific again. These two properties are absolutely ideal for families who want to be staying close together but to still have some degree of separation. The two units are basically identical, with a shared large deck.

Wonderful Resort

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a wonderful time. We were a little nervous because we had a big family gathering and we really wanted them to have a great time, and for everything to run smoothly. Everything was lovely! The location of your house, the sunrise, the sunset, the bike rides, the golf course view, the wildlife! AMAZING!! I can not believe how much we did in four days! Definitely a family (and friend) favorite. We can't wait to go back and we will be sure to let our friends know how beautiful kiawah is and how easy Akers Ellis was to work with!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home inside and out. There was plenty of space for all of us to have our own space for each family and the common areas were large enough to accommodate our group especially the two kitchens.We played two rounds of golf each day so the community pool was a necessity at night! When we return to Kiawah your home will be first on our list.

Best house

  • 5 of 5

This home is great for two families that want to stay right next door to each other. Literally NEXT DOOR. The house is spacious and located right off one of the golf courses. Great view. The walk to the beach is a short 5-10 min walk. This home has a great and spacious kitchen, a killer master bathroom, a nice back porch (which connects the homes), and is decorated beautifully in both homes. I would definitely choose this property for a future Kiawah vacations the families take. We were on the island for a wedding and everyone commented that this home was the best property of the weekend.
