Our house is on the lagoon, and surrounded by natural areas, so that you feel the charm of the low-country embracing you. We are on a cul-de-sac, and the kids can ride bikes on our long, private driveway. Get out the chalk and let their imaginations will go wild--play hopscotch and have a side-walk-artist-contest without leaving the comfort of your vacation home!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Friends took us to lunch at the Ocean Club, and I said: 'Give me a kayak and a bike and pick me up in 5 years.' That is how we fell in love with Kiawah, and we want to share our lovely home with you. Coming from Aruba, Hilton Head and Fripp, we found Kiawah has the ambiance and the beauty we thought was no longer available. Come bike and walk on the beach with us, kayak with me, watch the deer graze in our yard.....alligators cruise the shore of the lagoon, the water-fowl make their graceful landings, golf on the most gorgeous courses, and fall in love with Kiawah with us! Kindest Regards, Elisabeth and Wade St. John

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  Kiawah Island .... what's not to love! We also love the cool NC mountains--check out vrbo listing #330336, our 7 BR lodge-style home, named SkyHigh!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We hear the surf and can see the tidal changes in the lagoon--we don't need a tidal clock! The golf course surrounds our property, yet does not intrude, and the wild-life you see when just sitting on the porch is such a gift. Do you know what a Oster-Toadfish is? Neither did I until I saw this unusual creature in the lagoon. And, the Kiawah Nature Center identified it for us!
