Private Homes house description

40 minutes to Charleston Airport; 30 minutes to Charleston

Bedding for six, eight allowed. 2 and a half bathrooms. 2416 sq. feet interior, plus screened in porch and large deck on lagoon.

This friendly, gold rated three bedroom Vanderhorst plantation home is on a peaceful lagoon. It has an open, congenial floor plan with lots of windows. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and each of the two guest rooms upstairs has two single beds. The modern, well lit master bathroom includes a large, walk in, tiled shower and a bathtub (both with regular and hand held water heads), and a double sink vanity. There is a HD LCD TV in the living room and a HD LCD-LED TV in the master bedroom. DirectTV and its many channels serve the TVs. You will spend lots of time on the large deck and adjacent screened in porch with coffee, cocktails or binoculars in hand, enjoying the quiet surroundings and wildlife. The water environment and its egrets, blue herons, jumping fish, deer, occasional fox, and other wildlife is a joy to awaken to each morning. Guests also have access to high speed cable and wireless internet. A large, enclosed, wooden floor, outdoor shower is attached to the house. The house is on a rarely traveled, quiet street.

This home is comfortable and welcoming, and is perfect for families and couples.

There is a bike trail directly to the 11 mile long famous private beach. The beach is less than a mile from the house, about an 8 minute leisurely bike ride. Beach parking is also available at no charge, of course.

Save 15%+ off normal rates by renting directly through owner. You will still receive all the amenities of Wyndham Vacation Rentals, including keys, maps and a welcome package at Wyndham's convenient welcome center at the Freshfields shopping village (located at the entrance to the island), sheets, bath towels, soap and shampoo, basic starter kitchen items (sponges, soap, etc.), 24/7 call access to answer questions or resolve any maintenance or other issues, and a full cleaning after your stay.

Spring, Summer and Fall rentals are from Saturday to Saturday. Exceptions can sometimes be made.

Kiawah Island and its beach deserve their world class reputations. The ocean water is comfortably warm but still refreshing from June to September, there are often great waves for body surfing, the sand can’t be beat for sand castles, and kids love the tidal wading pools. The Island's 30 miles of bike trails meander though all sorts of habitats. Of course the island includes its renowned golf courses and tennis facilities, and there is a wonderful children's camp filled with daily activities and excursions. Guests may join the Nature Center’s walking, van, bike, canoe, kayak, and boat tours and other activities. The upscale Freshfields Village, with its excellent grocery store, coffee shops and other stores, is nearby.

A marina with deep-sea fishing and sailing charters are located at the nearby Bohicket Marina. It’s easy to get to Charleston. Family style and fine restaurants are located on the island, just off island and, of course, in Charleston.

Note. The last day of a rental shows as not rented on the calendar, but it is a move out, move in day and is really the last day of a rental period and the first day of a new rental period. The first day of a rental shows as rented, but it is also a move in, move out day. The $253 cleaning charge to reimburse Wyndham its cleaning fee is only payable for rentals of three days or less. There is no cleaning charge for rentals of 4 or more days.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: We have been going to Kiawah since 1962, when Sam's parents bought one of the original 11 houses on the Island, on Eugenia Ave. right next to the beach, way before the Island was developed. We now live in Wellesley, Massachusetts (just outside of Boston), but still return to Kiawah as often as we can.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              Kiawah and Charleston are truly very special places. The Island has a unique mix of one of the best beachs in the world, warm ocean water (in the summer) with waves and tidal pools, wonderful natural habitats that can be accessed by bike and walking trails, a peaceful and elegant setting, and lots to do. Charleston is probably our favorite city in the country - just the right size with great character, food, culture, architecture, and people, that nice salty smell of a seaside location, and many ways to spend your time.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Peace, quiet, and comfort in a natural, friendly setting – getting away from it all with easy access to all Kiawah and the Charleston area has to offer.
