Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

This large house comfortably accommodates family gatherings. Only 2 short blocks to the beach at 70 Spotted Sandpiper, it sits on a lagoon-lined cul-de-sac with very little traffic. Located in the West Beach area, our home is centrally situated on the island with easy access to Freshfields Village and the Sanctuary. Our section of beach tends to be less crowded as the neighborhood is primarily single family homes.

The Kitchen and dining rooms were completely renovated in 2016 and now feature quartz countertops, tiled floors, and large farm style table. The kitchen is fully stocked with many items not normally found in a rental. Our family LOVES to cook so we have renovated to make it easy to have several cooks working at the same time!

The master bedroom, with a king-size bed, is secluded from the rest of the house, and has its own sitting area and jacuzzi. One additional bedroom has a king-sized bed. The other 4 bedrooms all have queen beds. There is also a jacuzzi attached to two bedrooms in the main sleeping area. In addition, there is a loft above the main sleeping area; it includes 4 twin beds, lots of toys, and a piano to keep kids of all ages entertained.

Wireless high-speed internet access works throughout the house. There is a high chair and small kids' table available in the dining room. The gas grill is located on a deck off the dining room. There is also a screened porch with very comfy furniture - a great way to relax after a day on the beach!

Two sitting and television areas allow for different entertainment needs. The main living room has a large curl-up chair and a game table, so everyone can find a place to relax and call their own!

The restaurant options near Kiawah are outstanding.

About The Jenkins Family

We are 4 siblings owners of this beachhome for over 25 years! The home has been host to countless family celebrations - from birthday parties to 45th wedding anniversary! We love sharing our home to other families for their vacations!

The Jenkins Family purchased this house in 1986

Why The Jenkins Family chose West Beach

This house is truly a beachhome for us. It was purchased as a getaway and expanded to ensure the entire family could enjoy time together. A few years ago, we decided to share the fabulous celebrations we had at this beachhome with others! I know your vacation at our home will create wonderful memories for you too!

What makes this house unique

There are too many favorite things to mention. Most of all the size of the house allows the entire family to gather, but also gives enough space for quiet time! The short walk to the incredible beach - an area of just homes so it is rarely crowded.Perfect location on the island - close to the security gate and Freshfields Village (a 5 minute drive) and an easy bike ride to the Sanctuary and East Beach facilities. We are in a quiet neighborhood nearly in the center of the island. The screened porch gives a shaded space after a day at the beach. The loft filled with toys which entertains kis for hours. The large living room with lots of seating for sharing stories and getting caught up with friends and family. A kitchen large enough and designed to have lots of 'cooks in the kitchen'. The separate den, so small children can be entertained while adults enjoy a leisurely dinner. Three bedrooms designed to be close to the loft for children needing their parents, but 3 bedrooms more separate for those who would prefer uninterrupted time. Again, too many to name as the house was designed

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a large well appointed house with all the things available for a super stay. Clean, near beach, and for us it was perfect. (as reviewed on our rental management website)

Best family vacations ever!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, comfortable and well stocked home for a family who likes to enjoy the beach, bike riding and eating at home most nights. The kitchen is very well stocked for family meals. Lovely screened porch and plenty of bedrooms and baths to accommodate a large family. Grandkids state that the Spotted Sandpiper Kiawah house is the best vacation ever!!

Wonderful Thanksgiving Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation. It is a very comfortable home for a large family. It was incredibly well stocked in the kitchen to prepare Thanksgiving dinner and had a large enough table to accommodate all of us! Thank you for sharing your home with others. It was a great memory for our family.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (three generations) just spent a delightful week at the Spotted Sandpiper house. Everyone thought it was the best house (of five in various places, including Kiawah) that we have rented. We thank the owners for sharing such a well-equipped and comfortable house! It was a wonderful week for us.

We had 12 for this beach vacation ranging from 9 years -75 years. The loft beds are best for younger children, ours were almost too big but it worked! It was a great house; plenty of room to spread and separate with great space to be together! Loved the screened porch, grilled 3 nights, easy & close walk / bike to the beach. We had a rainy start to the week, great sun at the end, a wonderful week; easy walk back when the rain threatens. Wonderful kitchen, very well equipped for all our cooking and baking needs. Owners very responsive to questions and concerns! We will very definitely stay here again if our weeks align.

Owner's Response: We are so happy our home worked well for your family reunion/ vacation. We all love to cook and are thrilled the kitchen was well-equipped for your needs. Even with this rainy summer, we're glad our game/ puzzle filled comfortable home worked so well for you! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Great value

  • 4 of 5

This home was a wonderful retreat for our multi-generational family gathering of 17. The loft play area was wonderful for the children (ages 2 through 10), providing enough space for them to spread out. Plenty of bedrooms, and plenty of relaxation space for conversing or napping. We're already talking about a return trip!

Absolutely Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was PERFECT for our family get-together for the Bridge Run. We had 12 adults and 1 child (LOVED the playroom!) and we were extremely comfortable. We had a dinner party Saturday night with more people and there was so much room, including lots of space to spread out and even have privacy. All of the rooms are exceptionally comfortable, the kitchen is spacious and very well-equipped. The condition of the property was perfect. The location to the beach was the best of any place we've stayed in at Kiawah. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone, especially large groups with children - very child-friendly, but in very good shape. It is also pet-friendly for small dogs which is a plus. We loved it!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your note! We're so happy you loved our home as much as we do. We have had so many wonderful family celebrations there and are so happy to share it for others to enjoy. I hope we will see you on Kiawah again in the near future!
