Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My husband and I have been traveling to Kiawah for close to 20 years. We love all the elements of the island that make it such a great vacation spot! From unbelievable golf to unbelievable wildlife, this island truly has something for everyone. Now that we are parents to two active pre-teens, we can share our love of this place with them.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
After many years of renting, we decided to purchase a home on the island and make it a special place we could retire. We enjoy all the surrounding islands as well, and our children love to go downtown to Charleston and explore.
