About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Your stay in our charming home will leave you feeling refreshed and peaceful. WE ARE ONLY 90 SECONDS FROM THE BEACH! Wake in the morning to the sun rising over the front porch, and the sound of the ocean greeting the beach. Take your coffee across the street to the beach or sit on the front porch. Either way, you'll enjoy the cool breeze and the sound of crashing waves.

Our home was built in 1978 and was completely renovated in 2003. The renovation, featured in “Charleston Home,” transformed it into a retreat with timeless style. The floor plan is open and welcoming. The kitchen boasts double-ovens, a gas cooktop and granite counter-tops. The dining room is open to the kitchen and family room and is comfortable for a large group.

Our home sleeps 10 people. In the main house, we have three spacious bedrooms with luxurious beds; one king, one queen and two twin beds. The master bedroom has a spacious bathroom and closet, and there are comfortable chairs for quiet reading and relaxation in all of the bedrooms. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV and DVD player.

The dining room is open to the kitchen and family room. Upstairs, there is a loft that can be used for movie watching, quiet reading or playing games. We have stocked the house with beach toys/chairs, children’s books, movies and games. Attached by the front porch is a free-standing bunk house that has a family/media room, spacious bathroom and a bunk room that sleeps 4-6 in two full/twin built-in bunk beds. This is a great space for kids, grandma and grandpa or for young families needing a quite retreat for nap time. There is a large flat screen TV and blu-ray DVD player to entertain you on rainy days in the family room!

Finally, to keep you cool, there is a pool on the back deck. It overlooks the lagoon and has a built-in bench for in-the-water seating. Look us up on the Google Map. We're perfectly located at 28 Eugenia Avenue.

The perfect house, the perfect location...the perfect family vacation!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We found your beach home simply wonderful. The public ocean access between the two street-end, improved beach accesses seems nearly private and the home site is quiet and peaceful. We've rented homes in the Outer Banks, Mexico, the islands and elsewhere and yours was easily the most thoughtfully and thoroughly furnished. We'd love to stay on your short list of renters."

Great house close to the beach.

My family had a great time and enjoyed the quick walk to the beach. The house was clean and spacious and we loved cooling down in the pool on those hot summer days.

Wonderful again!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year to stay in this house on Kiawah Island. It is a beautiful home and just suits our family perfectly. The kitchen is well equipped with high end appliances.

This was our fourth year to stay in this beautiful home. It suits our family just perfectly. The kitchen is well equipped and has high end appliances. The décor is very tasteful and comfortable. Beautiful artwork throughout. There is a great swimming pool built into the back deck. And beyond that a lagoon with alligators and wildlife! The location is truly steps away from the beach and the beach at this entrance is pristine. Great shopping and restaurants nearby. The perfect vacation home!! We have already reserved our week for 2018!

5th year in a row

  • 5 of 5

We love this house, it works well for our family from ages, senior citizens to 5 year old with those in between. It has a well stocked kitchen, plenty of sand toys, beach chairs and beach towels so we do not need to bring more. The decor is charming with great artwork. Our only problem this year was that the washing machine was broken when we arrived and they were unable to fix it, think a new one arrives today as we are about to depart. The housekeeper was great to help us out with our laundry. Everyone voted to return for a 6th year in 2018. We no longer need the highchair or PAC n play but they were great the years we used them. I especially like the location which is close to the front gate so we can zip to the grocery when needed. We bring some bikes and rent the rest and rode them everyday on the great bike paths all over Kiawah. The beach is a short walk to the beautiful wide beach. You can easily rent umbrellas and chairs but recently we have brought our own. There are many places to eat on Kiawah and lots to do for all ages. The owner is very responsive to our needs and answers inquiries promptly. A Great Spot!
