If you like to walk or bike on the least busy stretch of beach on Kiawah island, where you can see a pod of local dolphins feeding in the Kiawah River, this is your place. Simply read the past guest's comments below and you'll see why this home is such a special place.

The house has brand new hardie board siding, new decking, new windows and a new roof. The dishwasher, refrigerator and oven are new. Rated the maximum 4 Stars by our management company, this is a home that is remarkably comfortable and relaxing and is why so many past guests return to this home. This beautiful, newly decorated home has hard wood floors and is located on a secluded dead-end street, surrounded by large Live Oak and Palm trees. It's a perfect family home with a large central kitchen-living room- dining room area, but yet has all the privacy you might want too. Many simply stay at the house by the pool, rarely leaving and others use this wonderful home as a central point to venture out for beach walks, kayaking and biking. Whatever you do at Kiawah, this comfortable home will welcome you back home.

Conveniently located in the West Beach area, it's about a five-minute walk or three-minute bike ride to one of the least busy areas of beach on the island. A maritime forest nature walk next door adds extra privacy to the back yard. Also nearby are the West Beach Tennis Club, Cougar Point Golf, Night Herron Park, and the Straw Market. The new Freshfield's Shopping Village is only 2 miles away. This is no ordinary rental house and it is Available Year Round. Please check the rental calendar below for available rental times.

The covered front porches have old-fashioned porch swings and there's also a screened-in porch, which leads down to a 2-car garage. There is a new sound TV system in the living room and a wireless high-speed broadband internet connection. The open, fully equipped modern kitchen connects directly with the dinning and living rooms and all look out over the large private back yard.

All bedrooms and living room have HD flat screen TV's.

The Upstairs Master Suite has a king-size bed, sitting area, TV, DVD, large walk-in closet with a single fold up bed, private bathroom and its own balcony porch with a swing. Two other Upstairs Bedrooms have two extra long twin beds in each bedroom (four total extra-long twin beds) and HD TV in each room. The laundry room completes the upstairs. The Downstairs Bedroom has a queen-size bed and HD TV and . The large fully equipped kitchen opens to the dining area and living room, which has large comfortable sofas and chairs. Linens and bath towels are provided with the rental. If a deluxe private home with your own heated pool, near to an off the way area of beach is what you're looking for, you've found the right place.

This house is all you would ever need. The pool is a major bonus for us. Another couple with two kids go with my husband and two kids each year and we won't go to another place. We have found our golden spot. The kids play on the beach until about 1:00, we take them to the house to feed them, and then we put them in the heated pool until supper. It can't get much better than that.

A Relaxing Two weeks in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of six stayed in this house for two weeks this summer. Our first trip to Kiawah was relaxing and well spent family time. The house was the perfect size for all of us, the pool was by far the highlight of our stay for our kids. We enjoyed biking to the beach (we rented our bikes) and when it was too hot for the kids we would spend the rest of the day at the pool. Beds and linens were great, kitchen well supplied, sectional sofa very comfortable. The only draw back, and it is minimal, would be the traffic noise from the busier Kiawah Island Parkway which is right behind the bike path in the backyard...the house is well cared for and updated and the wifi was a nice treat for everyone in our group. I personally loved the porch swing, so peaceful to sit outside in the late afternoon or early morning and enjoy the southern charm of the house. thank you for a wonderful family vacation.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my wife and I took our 5-year-old son to the beach. This could not have been any more perfect! Kiawah Island is gorgeous and provides many activities, but we especially loved bike riding (on one of the many trails throughout the island, or on the beach), small crowds at the beach, and fine dining. Not to mention the world class golf! The house itself was fantastic. Very clean, comfortable, and provided with any household items needed and more. We also loved the location of the house. It is on a side street away from any main roads, about 5 minutes from the Freshfields Market and a minute from the beach. I would recommend this house in a heartbeat and hope to return some day soon.

Idyllic and Enchanting

  • 5 of 5

This was our first ever use of VRBO to book a vacation and it could not have been more perfect. Kiawah Island in general, and this property specifically presented a perfect spot for our family vacation. The home was spacious, comfortable, clean and equipped with all the items we needed to make it our home for the week. Everything from booking through check-in and check-out went without a hitch and we encountered no problems of any kind during the week. I would have no hesitation in either returning for a future vacation or recommending to friends who might like a similar experience.

About Rocky Bowers

The starting five on a great day

Rocky Bowers purchased this house in 1999

Why Rocky Bowers chose West Beach

There's no other place like Kiawah Island. Only 20 miles from Charleston, it has golf, beach, biking, kayaking, among other things.

What makes this house unique

The private pool is one reason so many people rarely leave the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've been visiting Kiawah for many years and I realized that I had seen and been captivated by this house many times. What a treat to stay here. It truly is lovely here- At every turn I discover something else charming- beautifully decorated-spacious- kitchen well stocked- so many pluses. Thanks again.
