The nature center offers various types of sightseeing tours, and well as kayak and canoe adventures n the tidal marshes and Kiawah River.

Kiawah is only 24 miles from Charleston and its fine restaurants, horse drawn tours, and other sites. A 30 to 40 minute drive will take you to Magnolia, Middleton and other lovely plantations on the Ashley River, the Audubon Society swamp walk, and many other attractions.

Famous Golf and Tennis Facilities: Kiawah is famous for its golf courses, including the Ocean Course where the Ryder Cup and the PGA Championship were played. There is a wonderful golf learning facility, and excellent driving ranges. Kiawah's clay and hard court tennis facilities have been rated No. 1 in the World. The island's 5 Star Sanctuary Hotel and Spa, and its very fine restaurants, are definitely worth a visit.

About Sam Hunt

I have been coming to Kiawah since 1962, when my parents bought a house on the Island from Mr. Royal. It was a jungle island then, with a rickety wood bridge, dirt roads, 12 houses on Eugenia Avenue by the beach (many are still there), and incredible nature. We have loved Kiawah and the Charleston area. There is never a dull day.

Sam Hunt purchased this house in 1996

Why Sam Hunt chose Vanderhorst Plantation

Our house is a sunny, comfortable, refuge next to quite lagoon on a quiet street. Waking up each morning and seeing the fish jumping in the lagoon out of the glass bedroom sliding doors is a beautiful start to the day.

A great time

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the house and its quiet location. The décor in the living room was very comfortable, just right for our family. The master bedroom is really pleasant and light, with it's own TV, access to the deck, and a great view of the lagoon. The master bath is spacious, and includes a large Jacuzzi. We loved the comfortable, open design of the living room, dining room and kitchen- perfect for socializing and relaxing together, and the large dining room table was a real plus. The kitchen was equipped with everything you would want for cooking and serving.

The deck was great, quiet and with a view of the lagoon, which is only 30 feet or so from the deck. We rented bikes and had fun biking around the island. There are well-maintained bike trails everywhere, and the terrain is flat- just our speed. We especially enjoyed biking on the beach. The house is not within walking distance of the beach, but it was easy to bike there, just 7 or 8 minutes through some pretty areas. We would definitely return to this house again.

Wonderful 🏡 for a lovely peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We fully enjoyed 23 Marsh Edge Ln., a comfortably furnished well-equipped, charming house on kiawah. This is our second visit to 23 Marsh Edge Ln. and we will stay there again. The house has beautiful views, and a luxurious master bath and bedroom. The owner is also extremely responsive to any and all issues that might arise. Kudos and thanks for a great vacation!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation on Kiawah Island! This home was absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. The location is secluded and peaceful - mornings spent on the covered deck sipping coffee was our favorite part of the day. The owner was very easy to communicate with and made sure that we had everything we needed. We would definitely love to come back and stay again!

Kiawah and its beach deserve their world class reputations. The ocean water is comfortably warm but still refreshing from June to September, there are often great waves for body surfing, the sand can’t be beat for sand castles, and kids love the tidal wading pools. The island's 30 miles of bike trails meander though all sorts of habitats. Of course the island includes its renowned, award winning golf courses and tennis facilities, and there is a wonderful children's camp filled with daily activities and excursions. Guests may join the Nature Center’s walking, van, bike, canoe, kayak, and boat tours and other activities. The upscale Freshfields Village, with its excellent grocery store, coffee shops and other stores, is nearby. A marina with deep-sea fishing and sailing charters are located at the nearby Bohicket Marina. It’s easy to get to Charleston. Family style and fine restaurants are located on the island, just off island and, of course, in Charleston, only 24 miles away.
