About the property

Enjoy a wonderful vacation in our gorgeous and newly decorated beach home. A quick two minute bike ride or six minute walk puts you directly on the beautiful beaches of Kiawah. Beach chairs, towels and games are all stocked and ready in the garage. No need to pack anything except your bathing suit.

Whether you like to enjoy an active vacation or luxuriate in a quiet time of restoration, our house is the place for you. The beaches and paths of Kiawah are perfect for running, walking, enjoying the warm water or relaxing with a book. Golf and tennis are a quick bike ride away. Come home to enjoy comfortable and stylish furnishings, 4 flat screen TVs and lots of movies for movie night, a ping pong table for tournaments and beautifully furnished porches to enjoy the breezes.

Enjoy fishing? Try your luck at the dock on the marsh just out the back door. Crabbing here is great too. Looking for a day on the water? Let us know and we can share our favorite charter captains with you.

At breakfast, lunch or dinner, take advantage of the great dining available on Kiawah, at Freshfields or in Charleston. Let us know if you need any recommendations - happy to help. If you want to cook in, all the tools you need are included in the kitchen. Service for twelve, wine glasses, cloth napkins and dishware for serving are classic with enough beach theme to make your meals elegant and fun. Try a new recipe from our collection of southern and beach cookbooks!

Our five comfortable bedrooms give you all the space you need to spread out or invite friends and family to join you. The main house is laid out perfectly for groups with three bedrooms and lots of living space. The master bedroom is serene and comfortable with a king bed, cozy fireplace and chaise lounge. Adjacent to the master is a large covered porch complete with two Charleston swings - twin size and comfy enough for a long nap. The first floor guest room has a queen bed and attached bath. The second floor guest room is perfect for kids or adults with two twins and attached bath. The guest house has two bedrooms outfitted with a queen and two twins. The guest house also has a living area complete with seating and TV.

While we aren't lucky enough to live in the area, we do have wonderful property managers who are available should you need any assistance during your stay. In addition, we are happy to help you arrange grocery delivery, restaraunt reservations, tee times, court time or anything else to make your vacation perfect. We love Kiawah and want you to enjoy it as much as we do.

It was our first time at Kiawah Island and it's an amazing place to stay. The landscaping is so lush and the location of the house is super close to the beach. We had 8 adults and this house had plenty of room for us to relax and hang out in the living room. The kitchen and dining room is perfect for entertaining big groups. The beds are comfortable and the linens and towels are top notch. I loved the beach - not crowded and beautiful. Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Kiawah home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we've stayed in this home and, after coming to Kiawah for close to 25 years, this home is by far the nicest home in which we've stayed. The location is a short walk to the beach and can be both secluded from and close to everything you could need, dependent on what you want! The home is classically decorated with a relaxed beach feel, you'll truly feel you're at home and won't want to leave! Additionally, the owner is truly great and very easy with which to arrange and accomodate needs that arise. You'll never want to leave Kiawah or this home!

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the nicest homes we've ever rented. The open layout of the living/kitchen/screen porch was great for family gatherings. The entire house was beautifully decorated and well-equipped. The master suite was huge and the additional porch off of it was so comfortable with the suspended Carolina swings. The guest house was a perfect place for our two adult boys. It took less than 5 minutes to walk to the beach, but most of the time we rode bikes so it was even quicker. The owner was very friendly and easy to work with. I hope to rent this home again when we return to Kiawah.
