Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: As a teenager, I lived several years in Charleston and introduced my husband, a mid-westerner, to the South, when we took a vacation to Kiawah in 1994. He was hooked and we bought a piece of land on the Island. Before we built our home, we rented on Kiawah for nearly 10 years. That experience allowed us to see what was missing in most rentals and we made sure to build our home with lots of outdoor space and plenty of communal areas for family gatherings. We also included amenities such as down comforters, a well-stocked kitchen, and computer and dvd's.

Why the Owner Chose Vanderhorst Plantation, Kiawah Island, SC, USA:
We fell in love with the sunny, southern exposure and views of the marsh which allow us to enjoy all four seasons on Kiawah. We also loved the fact that Falcon Point only has homes on one side so there is a peaceful, serene feeling to the neighborhood.
