Our Home Away From Home for February, March and April
"This is our fifth year renting from Doug and all I can say is that the house works really well for us. The house is situated in a cul de sac and all along the backside of the house are windows and glass doors that offer stunning views of the marsh. A day doesn’t go by without colorful wildlife flying overhead or deer treckking across the marsh.
The interior of the house is spacious and comfortable. The master bedroom & bath are at one end of the house and the guest bedrooms & bathrooms are located at the other end. This makes it nice for guests to have their privacy and vice versa. The kitchen is a little dated but is complete with all the necessary appliances, dishes, etc. My husband has created his own work area at one end of the master bedroom and finds it comfortable. We used the dinning room once in five years because we prefer to sit in the kitchen-family area where we can enjoy the view and natural light. We have never used the living room. It is just my husband, our yellow lab and myself.
The beach and golf courses are within a five- minute drive. The bike path is less than a minute from the bottom of the driveway. The grocery store and boutiques are a 10-15 minute drive.
Doug has been a great landlord. He is attentive and returns calls in a timely manner to assist in resolving any issues.
We hope to return for a sixth time…!"

"We had the pleasure of renting this lovely home right after Christmas for 4 nights. We were in town working on wedding arrangements for our daughter's upcoming wedding. We also had other family staying nearby. This home was beyond our expectations. We felt so at home- it really is a HOME, not like a rental. It's beautiful enough so you can sit back and appreciate it but homey enough to curl up on the sofa with a good book.
The beds were great (and plentiful) and the linens were really good quality and also plentiful. The kitchen was our gathering place and we cooked great meals in there. Everything we needed was on the premises - even coffee filters.
The view was wonderful. The weather was cool (and we were busy) but we enjoyed the view and did sit out once or twice. There is a world class beach literally a 5 minute stroll from the house. Ample parking too. We truly enjoyed this home and will book it again in the future if it's available. Thanks for your hospitality. ;-)"

"This house was perfect for our large family. The walk to the beach is a quick 5 minute walk and the pool is very large. The home is very luxurious and offers plenty of space. The kitchen is fully equipped and has high-end appliances. There is plenty of outdoor space to from the many porches to the grotto by the pool. We will be back next year!"

"We stayed here with my family for our first visit to Kiawah Island. From the second we expressed interest in the house, the owner was so helpful, thorough and timely in communications, and offered incredible insight and advice into the island. He wholeheartedly opened his home and amenities to our family, ensuring we had a top notch experience in Kiawah. Not only was the owner simply wonderful, but the house itself is just gorgeous. We had a 1 year old baby with us, and 3 adult couples. Everyone had their own space, their own bathroom, and we didn't have to worry about keeping anyone up with a crying baby. The pool out back was gorgeous, along with the golf course views (we even got to see my dad and husband and brother-in-law as they were golfing on the course one day!), and the amenities were extremely well maintained. We even had a visit from a pool boy half way through the week to make sure everything was working well. Really cannot express how perfectly amazing this house was and how wonderful the owner was to work with. We are already trying to plan our next trip back!! Highly, highly, highly recommend!!!"
