Private Homes house description
Our Vanderhost Plantation beach house is located at 23 Bufflehead Drive, 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!

Our extended family of 6 adults and 4 children just got back from a truly wonderful stay in Kiawah at Jerry's beautiful house. There was plenty of room and privacy for all, though we spent most of our at home time gathered in the comfortable great room/kitchen, swimming in the pool or relaxing in the screened in porch. Pool alarms totally my initial concern about staying there with toddlers. And getting all of us to the beach (with a LOT of gear) was a snap given carts, chairs, etc. on hand. We celebrated both my 3 year old's birthday and our 8th wedding anniversary while there and the house definitely lived up to our hopes for a fantastic place for both. Highly recommend!

Just what we needed!

We had an absolutely wonderful week at 23 Buffelhead. This was our third trip to Kiawah and our favorite place yet! We loved swimming in the pool while watching alligators in the lagoon. A very quick bike ride to the beach. Overall a beautiful home in an ideal location!

As a first time VRBO user, I was pleased with the ease of searching for appropriate properties and especially impressed with the cooperation and assistance of the owner, Jerry Geraghty. His helpful hints and suggestions enhanced our stay and golf play in Kiawah. This pristine and luxurious property comfortably accommodated our party of nine adults, and the home was more spacious than the photos indicate. The well appointed kitchen and top of the line barbecue grill offered ease in meal preparation for the days we chose to dine at home. The toiletries found in each of the bathrooms were much appreciated and reminiscent of those found in fine hotels. Although the photos more than accurately portray this fine home, it is even more impressive than shown with high ceilings, exquisite woodwork, and attention to detail in all facets of the design. It was most helpful to have made our tee times on all five of the courses and restaurant reservations two months in advance so there was no disappointment in missing the best of Kiawah and Charleston. We ordered our groceries online at the Piggly Wiggly in St. Johns and the order was ready for pickup upon our designated arrival. It does not get much easier than that! I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and relatives and already have shared information regarding this spectacular home and gracious owners to others. Since this vacation was extraordinary, we do plan to return next year.

This was my husband's and my first visit to Kiawah. Absolutely amazing! The pictures and description of the property are very accurate, but don't begin to capture the the "WOW" factor of this home; spacious, beautifully decorated, spotless, and well maintained including bathroom amenities you would expect in a 4-star hotel. There is a wonderful screened porch, deck and pool area to just relax and watch the alligators and wildlife. The beach is a short walk, or even shorter bike ride away. Don't miss sunrise over the ocean, it is breathtaking. Freshfields grocery is about a 15 minute drive with an amazing selection of prepared foods in their deli and bakery; tons of fresh produce and a great wine selection. We had 6 adults in the house and had more than enough room to hang-out together as a group or get away for some private quiet time. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a lovely gas grill outside on the deck. We made some very special memories as we enjoyed this wonderful home and the beautiful island. We look forward to hopefully returning for another stay.

This is the first time that my family and I had visited Kiawah. Wow! We all fell in love. The island is amazing, full of wildlife and lush nature and the beach is great fun. The highlight of our stay was the lovely home at 23 Bufflehead Drive. The house is comfortable, inviting and warm. The deck and pool are great. It is obvious that a lot of care has been taken with this home. We spent many hours floating in the pool while alligator and wildlife spotting. The homeowner, Jerry was gracious and helpful in all of our planning. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to one day stay here again.

Perfect Family Getaway

We had a wonderful experience at this home. My family and I have been vacationing at Kiawah for years and have rented several homes. This house is by far the nicest house we have stayed in. The owners are terrific and and very helpful. I highly recommend this house for any family. It was perfectly set up, very clean and great for our large family. Everything was very organized(from linens to cleaning supplies to keys) and we just had a great time. The beach was just a quick bike ride and the neighborhood was wonderful! Jerry and Susan were great and very concerned that our stay was enjoyable. We had never used VRBO before so we did not know what to expect but it all went well and we had a great visit. I would recommend this home to anyone especially with children. We will be back!

There are so many things to love about this property. The location is wonderful. It is an easy walk to the beach on a beautiful path. The house is stunning, there is no need to ask for anything- it is all there. Go to the beach, come home to the pool, relax on the deck, cook dinner and go for a bike ride, repeat daily during your stay! We have been vacationing on Kiawah Island for over ten years, easily the best property we have stayed at.

About the owner: Year round residents of Nashville, TN our names are Jerry and Susan Geraghty and we welcome you to our home. We believe you will find this home a great place to relax with family and friends in true luxury and comfort. The home is the perfect setting to enjoy all the great things that Kiawah Island has to offer along with the city of Charleston. You will find that your time will fly by and you will have just touched all the activities and beautiful scenery there is to enjoy in Kiawah.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
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.
