Overview

Vanderhorst Plantation House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Our Vanderhost Plantation beach house is located two blocks from the beach overlooking a lagoon on a quiet residential street located beyond the second security gate and a convenient 8 minute walk to the beach.

As you enter the front door, you're impressed by a feeling of open space and natural light. High ceilings, hardwood floors, bead-board wainscoting and beautiful custom cabinetry painted a pale sun-washed color, create the perfect setting for your beach vacation with family and friends. The large great room on the main floor over-looks an outdoor screened-in-porch and deck with salt-water pool, built in gas grill, wi-fi and stereo with built in speakers throughout the house. As you stand on the back deck overlooking the tranquil lagoon surrounded by palm trees and dense shrubbery you'll understand why we always look forward to our next visit. Heading back inside to the kitchen you'll find yourself surrounded by an abundance of cabinet space, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf range/ovens and a Bosch dishwasher. The island is spacious and serves as a convenient location for meal prep or extra seating. The adjacent dining area seats 10 comfortably and the outdoor covered deck also has an expandable table that seats up to 10 for Al fresco dining. A flat screen TV, stereo, and DVD are situated at the far end of the great room with plenty of overstuffed couches to accommodate family and guests.

The spacious first floor master suite has a restful. 'beachy' feel, with French doors opening to the back deck, high ceilings, flat screen TV, in ceiling stereo speakers and beautifully appointed bath area. Also on the first floor is a full size laundry room and access to the basement and garage area which is equipped with table tennis and foosball tables. Basement has commercial size dehumidifier for year round game playing comfort.

The second floor opens to an upstairs family room with comfortable seating area, flat screen TV, stereo game console, in-ceiling speakers and separate PC room with desk and internet connections, fax/copy machine. Four bedrooms are located off this area. One BR has two twin beds and the other three have queen beds, large closets for storage and their own bath-rooms. At the end of a busy day swimming, golfing, playing tennis, or riding bikes, you'll find that there's no better place to catch up on your sleep!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Kiawah Island

We wanted a spot that we could gather with family and friends and walk to the beach, golf, tennis, or fishing. A special place that was quiet but surrounded by natural scenery with access to all the amenities one can find on Kiawah Island.

Paradise in Kiawah!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in Kiawah and can not say enough about this fabulous home!

The bedroom layout is excellent for a larger group and the open space is divided into

three separate gathering spaces, an upper "family room", a main family room and a

garage area that is set up with loads of fun activities for kids of all ages.

The family has gone out of their way to provide wagons to load items for the beach

and even has a nice selection of beach chairs, an umbrella, and towels for use during your

stay. The kitchen is stocked extremely well and we found we lacked for nothing while

eating meals at the house. There is even a wine fridge! The views are amazing from

any part of the home and we found ourselves enjoying the screened in porch at all hours

of the day! Very relaxing to play a game or read a book! Finally, there are numerous

activities to keep a family busy on the island of Kiawah and plenty of excellent dining options.

The house "manual" which was thoughtfully put together by the owners, thoroughly covered all of our

activity options and helped us make decisions on where to eat and how to spend our days.

We can't wait to return to Kiawah and book this home again!!! Many thanks!

Lovely home with lots of extras

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several different homes over many years visiting Kiawah and found this one to be just about the best.

It is impeccably clean and well maintained and beautifully furnished and in a lovely location just minutes from the beach. The pool and outdoor deck and porch were an added bonus as was the garage area with ping pong table and foosball which were enjoyed by the grandkids as well as the adult children. One of the things I appreciated the most was the well equipped kitchen with so many amenities that are typically not supplied (plastic wrap, garbage bags, dishwashing liquid, t.p and paper towels (which we usually have to go out and buy and then discard the extra). Also included are the use of beach towels, beach chairs (which we usually have to rent), a beach umbrella and even a cart to transport everything ....such thoughtful touches for a rental property to provide and much appreciated. This house also has beautiful artwork throughout , comfortable furniture and beds and an overall welcome feeling, as if you are personal guests of the owner. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come again. The owner also provided excellent communication and service.

Highly recommended!

5+ Stars!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Jerry's vacation home in Kiawah. It exceeded all of our expectations even after reading all of the other wonderful reviews. From the moment we booked, everything was as expected and so easy. We were in very goods hands and had no issues with the property. Aside from it being a beautiful home, wonderfully decorated yet comfortable, superb location on the Island, exceptional layout (especially kitchen and family room) --- the pool, balcony and porch were a perfect touch. We all enjoyed ending our beach day with a swim (with hours of "fish out of water" played to the kids delight!). We had music going in every room, pool safe wine glasses, a gourmet kitchen set-up, beach chairs, carts and toys to use and ping pong/football/pop-a-shot in the basement to keep the kids entertained. Really, this house has it all. We have rented two other times on Kiawah and this is by far the best. Lovely bike ride to beach and wonderful surroundings for nice early morning walks, too. Our families loved this house which made for such an amazing vacation. Kiawah Island has so much to offer and this home makes it an ideal vacation place to consider. Thank you, Jerry and family, for opening your home to us. Truly memorable. I hope it is available again and again.

Outstanding Home To Spend Time In Kiawah

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jerry's home on Kiawah Island. The home is beautiful with every amenity you could want on your vacation. Lots of space, plenty of room inside and on the screened porch to relax, along with a great sound system! A short walk to the beach, a wonderful pool at which to relax - it made for one of our more memorable vacations.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Jerry's home is a "10". Location, layout, decorating, lagoon view (with alligators), pool, deck, kitchen, furnishings, accessories etc. all are first class. The home is very well maintained. The carts, chairs and umbrella made the walk to the beach a breeze. Our grandchildren couldn't get enough of the pool. Our family, imported from 3 states, could not have asked for any better accommodations. We hope to return.

Great space!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family loved the open kitchen/living room. Nice pool, deck and screened in porch. The ride to the beach isn't too far, even with toddlers. Well equipped kitchen with top appliances. We look forward to staying here again. The owner was very helpful.
