About the property

House, lagoon & golf views, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Your home away from home, Oceanwalk has an open floor plan so upon entering you can see past the kitchen island, through the great room, and out to the large inviting deck. Step outside and take in the beautiful view of the lagoon; listen to the fish jumping and watch the herons searching for a snack. Beyond is the 17th fairway of Cougar Point golf course.

Have fun watching TV or playing cards in the the great room with it's fire place and two-story ceiling. This room opens to the fully equipped kitchen and the large dining room (seats 10) which is just a few steps up. Off the dining room, the sun room is the perfect place to enjoy a good book away from the TV. From here step outside to the upper deck and catch a few rays on the chaise lounge while sipping your favorite beverage as you watch for Gary the Gator!

The two bedrooms downstairs and the two upstairs all have sliding-glass doors which open out to the deck or to small balconies with more lovely views of the lagoon and golf course. Here privacy is assured as each large bed room has it's own en suite bathroom. There is Berber carpeting up the stairs & in all of the bed rooms and the hardwood floors throughout the rest of the house are scattered with oriental rugs.

Pack the cooler and stroll (a short 5-8 minute walk) to the beach to listen to the waves or play in the sand for an afternoon. Ride a bike along the hard packed sand beach or down to Fresh Fields to shop, pick up dinner or dine out. Catch the sunset at Red's or the Ocean Course.

Drive into Charleston for the day and enjoy the history, the Market, fabulous antique shops, world class shopping or the fabulous restaurants. Take the kids to the Aquarium, Angel Oak, a plantation, on a ghost tour, or on a short cruise or carriage ride to soak up the history! Charles Towne Landing Nature Park, Ft. Sumpter, a Riverdog's game, the Children's Museum of the Lowcountry, or strolling the Cooper River Bridge are all possibilities for you once you're here!

Whether you play golf or tennis, ride bikes, enjoy the magnificent 11 mile beach, or just like to relax in a serene environment watching the birds, the deer and other wildlife, Oceanwalk is perfect home for you.

Here's what the experts say about the area: One of the Travel Channel's 'Top Ten Beaches for Families'; National Geographic Traveler called it 'The second most romantic beach in America'; Home to three of Golf Digest's 'America's Top 75 Resort Courses'; Sixth among Tennis Magazine's 'Greatest US Tennis Resorts.'

About The Owner

We invested in this area after visiting numerous times while our son was stationed in the Navy as an instructor at the Nuclear Naval Training Command in Charleston.

I am retired from medical sales while my wife is a retired school teacher. Our partners in the home are a publisher of a business journal and a domestic engineer.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose West Beach

We love the beach, nature, bike trails, and all the amenities that the island has to offer. The house is a short walk to the beach so we can go back and forth easily. We also enjoy the short trip to Charleston for the history and amazing dining & shopping opportunities that the city offers.

What makes this house unique

Our house has 4 bedrooms each with it's own en suite bathroom which was important to us since we have many visitors. The open floor plan and high ceilings in the great room were also very appealing. We enjoy sitting on the deck and listening to the fish jumping in the lagoon (no doubt escaping from Gary Gator) and seeing some very interesting golf swings off the 17 tee of Cougar Point Golf Course. Being near the front of the island makes it so it easy to get into Charleston (35 minutes) & to Freshfields Village (2 mile bike ride,) which has many nice shops & restaurants and a great grocery store.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is wonderful. I loved its location and its openness. Kiawah is the best place to be. Thanks!

We are just returning from a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. Leaving was very very difficult. The home was spotless when we arrived. It is located on a lagoon. Watching blue heron, lunes and egrets fishing was so serene. We did also occasionally see alligators from the near by bridge. Each of the 4 bedrooms were spacious and nicely decorated. The attached bathrooms were neat and well stocked. The kitchen had everything you could ever need and somethings you probably never thought of. The beach was within an easy walk. The owner, Mr. James, was amazing to work with. We are looking forward to returning next winter!

Beautiful home and location!

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter was married at Magnolia over Labor Day weekend and this wonderful home on Kiawah was our home base for 2 great weeks!! Echoing other's reviews regarding the pictures not doing justice to how beautiful this home is nor how peaceful and relaxing the location is. I can't really add anything new that hasn't already been touched is well equipped, bathroom for each bedroom, beautiful scenery, short walk to the beach and exciting wildlife sightings!!

The owner was attentive and great to work with!

We would definitely stay here again!

Great house, great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Like other reviewers have said the pictures don't do it justice. It is a great home in a great location. My kids wanted to know if we could get a chair as comfy as the one in the den for our house. The kitchen had everything we needed making it easy to eat in/grill a few nights. Each BR having its own bathroom was very nice since we were 2 families. The screened in porch has AC and a door which makes it a great spot to escape for a bit if you get stuck doing some work while on vacation like I did. The deck is great and we had tons of fun watching the best wildlife - a gator that would cruise by occasionally (note that at no point did we feel unsafe), a family of deer that nestled right next to the deck, jumping mullet, and beautiful egrets and herons. Loved being able to bike around (bikes are a must and easy to rent and have delivered) and see more of this beautiful island. Will definitely stay here again!

One of our best vacations

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful wonder it has been voted one of the most desirable location in the USA...We had a wonderful stay...The house is huge with plenty of room and very comfortable...The view from the back patio is beautiful...The house is the best stocked VHBO that I have ever stayed in...Someone who owns it must be a cook because it has everything for a someone that loves to cook....I have to say that the owners can not do enough for their guests, from restaurant suggestions to getting the right passes...We would most certainly stay again.
