Great place, highly recommended!
"This place was great. Everyone was pleasantly surprised that it was as nice and as big as it was. The pics don't do it justice. Our group was comprised of three married couples and two teenage girls. The girls shared the attached large "apartment" above the garage, and the rest of us had our own bedrooms with spacious bathrooms. The master suite is especially nice and huge.
The walk to the beach is about 15-20 minutes max and takes you through a beautifully manicured neighborhood, across a short bridge over a small lake. The beach is beautiful and frankly, barely populated. If you take a bike it's five minutes from house to beach. Harris Teeter (grocery) is about a10 minute drive and is very well stocked. Turtle Point golf course is a two minute drive, and this home is located on one of its holes (the back deck was good for watching bad golf and one really big alligator).
We spent a week there and thoroughly enjoyed the deck, the small pool (the water somehow remained comfortably cool despite the 95+ degree temps) and huge screened in porch complete with two ceiling fans. We cooked on location every day, breakfast and dinner. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to prep pretty much anything. (Of course you bring your own food!) Used the gas grille on three or four occasions.
The home is tastefully decorated with Danish teak furnishings throughout. I highly recommend this home. We had one minor question for Jill the owner and she responded within minutes.
Finally, is this place 100% perfect? No, of course not. It's a home, and as with all homes, there will always be one or two things that can use a little TLC. Did it exceed our expectations? Absolutely. You won't be disappointed. We were glad we found this place!"

"We had such a blast in this home so big and spacious. We were just a couple of min bike ride from the ocean and it was right in the lagoon so mad it fun to look for animals in the water at night from deck. There was plenty of space for the three small families who stayed lots of living room space and dinning space. The frig was huge with plenty of room for all the groceries. The high light of the stay was the master sweet and the new bathroom was absolutely mind blowing. We all want to stay again and maybe even next year it was great. Just a reminder you are on the lagoon so there are bugs but we found the best way to keep them out was to keep the screens and deck doors shut good..."

"This was the perfect vacation home for the 10 of us (2 families). There was plenty of open space to accommodate all of us yet everyone had personal space when they needed it as well. We enjoyed the short walk/bike ride to the beach and ended the days with a soak in the hot tub on the deck. The variety of golf courses was perfect for the guys as well. It was the perfect home away from home!"

"We loved Jerry's vacation home in Kiawah. It exceeded all of our expectations even after reading all of the other wonderful reviews. From the moment we booked, everything was as expected and so easy. We were in very goods hands and had no issues with the property. Aside from it being a beautiful home, wonderfully decorated yet comfortable, superb location on the Island, exceptional layout (especially kitchen and family room) --- the pool, balcony and porch were a perfect touch. We all enjoyed ending our beach day with a swim (with hours of "fish out of water" played to the kids delight!). We had music going in every room, pool safe wine glasses, a gourmet kitchen set-up, beach chairs, carts and toys to use and ping pong/football/pop-a-shot in the basement to keep the kids entertained. Really, this house has it all. We have rented two other times on Kiawah and this is by far the best. Lovely bike ride to beach and wonderful surroundings for nice early morning walks, too. Our families loved this house which made for such an amazing vacation. Kiawah Island has so much to offer and this home makes it an ideal vacation place to consider. Thank you, Jerry and family, for opening your home to us. Truly memorable. I hope it is available again and again."
