Lovely home, located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, offers a peaceful retreat just steps away from the Kiawah River. Double front doors and a wide porch invite you into this well-appointed 2,800 sq. foot Low Country beach home. Open living and dining spaces accented with hardwood flooring, transom doorways and wainscoting lead onto a large screened porch. The well equipped kitchen features glass-faced cabinetry and convenient access to dining area.

Located on the first floor, the master suite with king size bed offers access to the inviting screened porch. Its comfortable bath features double vanities, an over sized tub and a separate shower. Guests will find the second floor bedrooms delightful with access to a wonderful deck overlooking a wooded setting. On this floor we have another king with private bath (pack n play located in walk in closet), a queen bedroom, two twins and a small study/bedroom with a large trundle bed and sturdy dresser. The outdoor pool can bring great relief from the heat. Six minutes by bike to the beach, or park in nearby Night Heron Park and walk across to the beach.

Why Suzan Murphy chose Kiawah Island

We bought this property sight unseen, but we had both vacationed in Kiawah for years and knew we wanted to own a home here. This house is wonderful! It has a wonderful feel to it--very well constructed and maintained. We recently updated the kitchen and the house has a large screened in porch overlooking the pool.

What makes this house unique

We are one of the few private homes that has a pool.

Great space, salt water pool and well stocked

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous KI stay - house was set up perfectly with 2 masters. Kids had hall bath to share. House sturdy and quiet. Fabulous porches on front and back for morning coffee. The pollen had even been cleaned off the screened porch. The house was stocked nicely with everything you could need including laundry pods.

Our one concern was location. This was our 3rd trip to KI and our first staying 'across the main road'. With the kids being older, we were less concerned but having to cross that road wasn't ideal.

Suzan was easy to work with. We rented bikes from Seaside Cycle - great because they came with baskets. Go ahead and pack the bug spray. On our last day we did a huge Easter Egg hunt in the yard and got lots of bites.

Great house !

What a fabulous vacation retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a joyful week! Loved Kiawah Island, and this home was the perfect sanctuary in which to stay. Centrally located on the island, we were able to get to the beach, the stores and the golf courses with no hassle at all. The house is located on a cul-de-sac and is extremely quiet. The family room was warm and inviting and the adjacent kitchen was fully stocked with every cooking need (though we ate out quite a bit at the abundance of fabulous restaurants in the area). We shared this home with another family, and had plenty of space for everyone to have their own room! Loved having a washer and dryer available, and our teenagers were thrilled with the cable and WiFi. The back screened in porch was a haven, and my teenage son loved the hammock. The pool was cool and inviting, and the serene calmness of the entire property helped lend to our relaxing vacation! We walked to the beach every morning to watch the sun rise, and the golf courses were outstanding. Highly recommend this property, and we hope to be back in the near future!

Perfect Home, Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

2 Adults and 5 Children, all under the age of 6, descended on this lovely vacation home in Kiawah where we had a wonderful, relaxing, except for the children's ruckus, and totally enjoyable week. Because of the children, we ate in every evening and found the kitchen to be well stocked and easy to prepare meals for a large group. The large dining area had ample room and the screened in porch provided another alternative. The home provided bicycles for everyone and Kiawah is an island where you want to bike rather than use your car as much as possible. Shopping was a short drive away and the beach a reasonable distance. The pool with a retractable cover was especially welcome with the children. We would highly recommend this home for large families and look forward to returning.

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 2 other families, each of us had 1 year old boys. This place had plenty of space for all of us, the pool was fantastic and the screened in porch was great for containing the boys!

We definitely plan to come back to this beautiful house on this beautiful island.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home to visit with our family. Everyone in the family from senior citizen age to our three year old loved the house. It feels like someone's well-loved home and not a rental property. The kitchen is great, so we cooked at the house most days. There is a grocery store relatively close. It is easy to get to the beach or simply hang out at the house and swim in the pool. May was a wonderful time to visit Kiawah. The island was quiet and the temperature was perfect. This was an absolutely relaxing and fabulous vacation!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Even though it was a short visit it was totally worth it. This house is gorgeous, well maintained and has a great location. The pool was an added bonus. We enjoyed the huge screened in porch area the most. We spent alot of time out there with all the kids. I would recommend this home to a large family or two small ones! Lots of space to spread out if needed. We rented bikes from Alligator rentals which worked out perfect too. Five Stars for sure! We will be using this property again! Thanks for everything!
