Beautiful Home on Golf Course-Easy Walk to the Beach!

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 comfortably)

Fall in Kiawah is our favorite times of year and this 3 bedroom beautiful home (if we may say so ourselves!) has a great history of satisfied guests (see comments below) and is a fantastic value.

We've been renting it to families like yours since 2007 and think we have a pretty good handle on what you want and expect in a vacation rental on Kiawah Island. Our renters consistently tell us our house was clean, comfortable, convenient, and seemed more like a home than a rental. From art work to amenities, you'll find this house exceeds your expectations. As our reviews attest, we have lots of satisfied renter families. We hope your family will be one of them!

Our completely remodeled house is located on Cougar Point Golf Course with a view of the course. A short walk and you are at the wide ocean beach.

Wide plank pine flooring throughout the home remind you of that old time beach cottage feel but the amenities are far from old timey. Fully equipped kitchen boasts granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and opens to a screened in deck for memorable family meals. The living room's large HDTV with digital cable and DVD make for great family viewing. Need to do a little work while you're here? Shame on you! But, no problem. We've got high speed WI-FI.

Truly a family friendly escape, trails to the marsh for wildlife viewing are steps away along with a viewing tower for watching spectacular sunsets over the marsh.

The house's location at west beach makes it ideal for convenient access to shopping, Night Heron recreational park, and west beach tennis courts as well as the five resort golf courses. Even with that accessibility, the house remains tucked away from traffic and noise so you and your family can enjoy your privacy. You'll especially enjoy lounging on the back deck with your view of the golf course. Grilling out is a pleasure with both a gas grill and smoker (both prohibited at villas).

Our house is cared for by an established local property management firm and the convenience and peace of mind of their availability is included in your rental fee. That company also provides a concierge service that can provide you with resort and other discounts and services. Feel free to book online and we'll arrange the details and complete the process!

One piece of advice: There are lots of great properties on Kiawah but be careful to get the true quote for your stay when you compare. Please note that our rates already include all taxes. That's an important consideration when you compare properties and rates, especially when you consider South Carolina's 12.5% tax rate. VRBO's software forced me to put in SOME tax rate so I plugged in 0.001% which will add a few pennies to your quoted rate. The additional $200 cleaning fee is the only other fee you will pay! No commissions or hidden fees!

About The Owner

We looked at a LOT of houses all over Kiawah before we found this location. We love the proximity to the beach right down the street and the fact that our children can access bike paths to anywhere on the island without ever having to ride on a street. We also like our location in West Beach because we are only about 1.5 miles in from the main gate so the location is very convenient to shopping and restaurants. Having rented in other areas on Kiawah, we realize how inconvenient it is to have to travel across the island and beyond just to pick up a stick of butter or something else you need. The short drive over to Freshfields is great. With the new bike path to Freshfields Village, a bike trip over for ice cream and shopping has become a great new experience!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose West Beach

After visiting Kiawah Island for several years in connection with my wife's business seminars, we realized that our North Carolina beach property could not compare to this location. We were lucky enough to find this property for sale and poured a lot of effort into making it our own. We don't think you will find this to be a typical 'rental property' and hope you will love it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

We provide four bikes to your family (not guaranteed but we do our best to keep them well maintained and available) along with a jogging stroller for little ones. The beach crossover is just four blocks away. We also love to climb up the steps of the watch tower just steps away from the house, have a cocktail and watch the sun set over the marsh and the beautiful birds that fly into the tops of the trees adjacent to the tower. With our house's location on the 7th fairway of Cougar Point Golf Course, we often walk over to the 6th green and watch golfers hit into that par three green. You can even watch them from the watch tower! Fun for young and old alike.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. It was perfect for our family and we loved Kiawah Island. With three teachers in our family, this was the ideal place to spend the first week of our summer vacation. We were able to rest and relax on the beach, read, play games and work puzzles, and simply enjoy being together as a family. As we watched the sunset on our last night here, our hearts were filled with gratitude and praise for all that God has given us-especially this amazing week on Kiawah Island! Thanks again!

Highly Recommended...beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well appointed vacation property. Everything was in excellent shape and just as advertised. Plenty spacious and accommodating for four adults and two children Great location in and out of Kiawah as it's located within a mile of island access gate on quiet cul-de-sac. Highly recommend this impeccable home. This will now become a preferred property for our future visit to Kiawah! Kudos to property owners for such a well maintained home.

Everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5

It would take me a week to list all the fantastic things about this home on Kiawah Island. From the back deck view of the seventh hole on cougars point to the large first floor including the kitchen dining room and living room this house was everything we could want and more. Asa couple of golfers who were down there playing every day of the week, it was great to come home to this comfortable home after a long day of golf. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay on the island and not just golfers, I've already talked to my wife about spending time there in the future.

Beyond Expectations, Great Location on the Island

  • 5 of 5

Due to a week of poor weather we were at the house more than originally anticipated. Luckily this was the perfect place to spend our down time. The house was spacious, clean, and extremely accommodating...the owners thought of everything, making it truly a home away from home. Every room was unique, and was decorated beautifully. We had five adults and one child, and in no way were any of us cramped or in each other's way. This house could easily have accommodated three to four additional guests if you were planning a family vacation. If we are ever traveling to Kiawah again, this spot will be at the top of our list.

Bottom line...This house was beyond what we had expected, had everything we needed, and the beds were comfy.

Thanks for everything Joe.
