About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
This home is professionally designed and decorated and has a 'platinum rating' for interior design and fixtures. Plus, it is a short walk to the beach. Most homes in Vanderhorst require you to get in your car and drive to the beach. Not here! A five minute walk, or a three minute bike ride, and you are there! In addition, the home is on a quiet cul-de-sac. So you get the best of both: walking access to the beach, yet the peacefulness and quietness of being off beach.
FIRST FLOOR: The spacious great room includes a living area with hardwood floors, a ceiling fan, a wood-burning fireplace. Built-in bookshelves flank the fireplace, and contain a 47” HDTV with Blu Ray DVD player and DirecTV. A Bose Wave Radio CD player with IPOD dock stereo is available, and there are some books for a little vacation reading. The luxury kitchen is separated from the rest of the great room by a breakfast bar. The dining area is adjacent, and has a round table that can accommodate up to eight guests. The sunroom overlooks the 13th fairway of the Turtle Point golf course, and has access to the furnished screened porch, complete with ceiling fans and a dining table for four. The first-floor master bedroom is furnished with a king bed and includes private access to the screened porch and a full private bath with a whirlpool tub. The whirlpool tub has luxury chromotherapy lighting. It is awesome! The bathroom also has a separate luxury rain shower, and exquisite lighting and decor.
SECOND FLOOR: On the second floor, a cozy media room includes an HDTV and a Bose Surround Sound System. A second bedroom (really a second master suite) is furnished with two queen beds (yes, two queens!), and includes its own full private bath and private access to the second floor deck. A spacious dormered bedroom furnished with a queen bed and two twin beds shares the full hall bath with a fourth large bedroom, also dormered, and furnished with two twin beds. Both of these bedrooms include access to the second floor deck.

Please note that we rent this home is on a “limited rental basis.” We limit the number of visits per year and have superb furnishings to ensure the utmost in quality and experience. It is not your typical rental home that moves people in and out continuously. The rate is higher than most homes. If you want the utmost in location, comfort, and quality, this place is for you!
Also, due to limited rental basis, we can easily handle unique arrival and departure days, stays that involve the weekend on both sides, or stays longer than one week.
Finally, we do use a local agency on Kiawah to help you. If you have any maintenance issues or some type of emergency, they are there 24/7 to help. It costs us a bit, but we have found it is best and provides ideal service to those enjoying their time on Kiawah.

About the owner: The Vanderhorst Plantation is the best part of Kiawah Island. It is behind the second gate, which offer additional privacy, security, and luxury. If you rent in Vanderhorst, you have access to the entire Island. There is wonderful biking, nature viewing, golf, beach, and overall tranquility. I am NOT in real estate nor am I trying to sell you property! I am a family guy and therefore know how to and try to maintain our home to the utmost in quality. I hope you agree! If you have never been to Kiawah, you will be amazed at the beauty that surrounds you.
Why the Owner Chose Vanderhorst Plantation, Kiawah Island, SC, USA:
Vanderhorst is the best part of Kiawah. My family and I looked all up and down coastal NC, SC, and GA before choosing Kiawah. It took 18 months to finally decide where to buy! This home is close to the beach, access to pool, and on a quiet cul-de-sac with no traffic. The back deck is so relaxing, and so tranquil in the evenings. You will love it. Once we decided on buying on Kiawah, it took us a while to find the perfect neighborhood, perfect location. This is it. A quick walk to the beach, but a home that has some of the benefits of being off beach. It really provides both. Kiawah is a private island. You cannot get on Kiawah unless you are a renting a place or are a homeowner. Because of that, it is quiet and very relaxing. Once you set foot on the Island and in the house, you will see that pictures and words cannot describe it.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walk to the beach, walk to the pool! Biking, Tennis, Golf, kayaking, paddle boarding relaxation. Another great benefit our location (Ocean Green Neighborhood) are the Ocean Green Neighborhood Pool. This pool is large, quiet, and private, and is only a short walk from the home. No need to get into the car to go to the pool. We also chose this location because it is quiet and private, yet “mid-island” in location. It is a short drive or bike ride to virtually all Resort Locations and Amenities. It is a short drive to get off island if you want to go to Charleston. Yet the location is still in Van der Horst Plantation securely behind the second gate. And it is on a quiet cul-de-sac with no traffic or road noise. We love the location.
