Why Karen Suiter chose Vanderhorst Plantation

My family has vacationed on Kiawah Island since I was 9 years old. I have so many wonderful memories of time spent on the beach, sailing, and bike riding here as a child. I am thrilled to be able to share these experiences with my children now. While it is only 5 hours from our home in Atlanta, Kiawah is like escaping to another world with the semi-tropical surroundings.

What makes this house unique

Our home is conveniently located within a short walk to the beach, or a short drive to multiple golf courses and tennis facilities. There are numerous great restaurants and shopping within minutes of the property. A spa is available at the nearby Mobile 5 star rated Sanctuary Resort, or just relax in the private Jacuzzi and enjoy the wildlife in the lagoon in the private backyard.

2nd time around at the Suiter mansion at 142 Hooded Merganser.

  • 5 of 5

Karen, the house is even better equipped and maintained than 4 years ago. Although we only had 2 couples this time we enjoyed our stay just as much. A great house for extended families or groups as there are many sitting/reading areas but we spent most of our time on the patio. Love to watch the baby alligators in the water. Thanks for the memories.

Beautiful home. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly beautiful home. Every square in is perfectly maintained. The furnishings and appliances are all top of the line. The views are terrific. It is a short bike ride to a part of the beach which is practically deserted, even on the 4th of July. All in all, a fabulous place to stay.

142 Hooded Merganser

  • 5 of 5

Our ladies tennis team stayed at this lovely home for a girls getaway. Everything was perfect! Karen was very attentive when we contacted her, she responded right away. House was vey nice and the location was excellent. We rented bikes from Alligator Bikes they delivered them and also picked them up, and we didn't have to be there for the delivery. We enjoyed long rides on the many bike paths and on the beach when we weren't playing tennis. Kiawah is a gorgeous area! We will be back!

Kiawah Island January to March 31: Kitchener-Waterloo , Ontario is home

Wonderful Home and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 142 Hooded Merganser for three months in early 2017. The house could not be better-comfortable beds, great bedding , a kitchen with absolutely everything including two ice-makers and good wine glasses, a Keurig and every size of pot, pan or casserole dish. The fireplace is lovely and burns either wood or gas. The deck has amazing views of the lagoon, alligators and the 14th green of Osprey. Easy access to the beach and lots of beach towels and toys pus a wagon to get you there. And on top of all this, an owner who is committed to the best experience for every renter that is possible. We are long time Kiawah people-over 30 years and this is one of the very best places we have stayed.
