Kiawah, our home for almost 12 years, is truly a magical place!
Our home is on a flag lot - technically ocean front - and has a dedicated view of the ocean from the upper floors. Most importantly, we have a private beach path that winds through the dunes to the beach; only 100 yards away, we can be on the beach and swimming in the ocean in a matter of a few minutes.
We have six bedrooms, six baths, a very modern kitchen with stainless appliances and a tremendous Wolf eight-burner oven. We have three living areas, a TV room, a fully-furnished screened-in porch, and much more for your enjoyment. Perfect for a large family, a reunion, or a few close friends spending the week together.

Kiawah Island is one of the premier resorts on the world, boasting miles-and-miles of ocean front beaches, four World Class golf resorts and two large tennis facilities (approximately 30 total courts).
The beach is truly fantatic - especially for families. Excellent for sunning, is it very flat and hard-packed - biking on the beach if fun! In addition, the beach has a very gradual slope (and no drop off), adding to the enjoyment of the entire family.
Golfing is fantastic and challenging. Professional tournaments have been held on Kiawah (such as Fed Cup (tennis) matches and the Ryder Cup), and most notably, the 2012 PGA Championship will be held here.
A mere 21 miles away is Charleston, SC one of the most unique and beautiful historic towns of America. Charleston boats fantastic shops, bars and restaurants. There are many interesting activities, such as 'Ghost Tours', Fort Sumter, USS Independence, and a fantastic world-class aquarium.
