About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This is a great family house and wonderful place for entertaining. It has a large open and very sunny floor plan. With over 5000 sq. ft. of indoor living area the rooms are all pretty big so everyone has lots of space. We have decorated the house in light and bright colors so it has a very positive and optimistic feel. People who come to our house are generally on vacation so we believe that it's important that they feel relaxed and in a good mood when staying there. It is with that thought in mind that we decorated the house. We primarily have return visitors so people must like the place. We certainly do!

We totally renovated and redecorated the house a few years ago and added an extra bedroom upstairs and turned an unused screen porch into a very nice office space off of the kitchen. There is a full size heated pool with surrounding deck right off of the living room, family room and master bedroom. The pool and patio area is a wonderful venue for entertaining and has outside stereo speakers to complement such. We spend a lot of time at the pool and have had more than our share of margaritas and cervezas on its patio while in residence. There is also a full sized gas grill on the pool patio and it gets a robust workout whenever we are visiting and, I suspect, when our guests are there as well. The fully equipped kitchen is quite large, bright and opens up into the family room. It has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a well lit separate breakfast area just off to the side.

We have large flat screen HDTV sets in the family room, living room, master bedroom and first floor office. They are all connected to Comcast. The system in the family room also has a surround sound home theater system. A number of movies are in the cabinet below the screen for you to use. But, you may also want to bring movies of your own to use as well as our selection is somewhat limited. The house also has a multi room stereo system if you care to use it.

The first floor has the main master bedroom and a guest bedroom. The second floor has a second and third master bedrooms and one other guest bedrooms with two twin beds. All of the bedrooms have their own baths. Four of the bedrooms have large walkin closets. The entire house is air-conditioned and it is on a three zone system so different temperature settings can be used to accommodate different desires amongst your group. There is a two car garage below the house but generally speaking everyone seems to just park overnight in the driveway as such is easier. There is a separate laundry room off of the kitchen and an elegant and welcoming entrance foyer.

We are located on the ninth fairway of the Jack Nicklaus Turtle Point golf course. As such, we are also a very easy walk to the Turtle Point Clubhouse which has a great Italian restaurant. It is only 300 yard from our back door.

Our home is a great place for families. Oftentimes, two families will share the house as it is quite spacious with several different rooms for people to hang out in. Our family really loves vacationing here. We suspect yours will too.

About Brian Williams

While we have owned our residence in Kiawah for fifteen years we have been traveling to the Island for over twenty five years. We love the relaxed feel of the place and try and get there as often as possible during the spring and fall months. Our three daughters have always enjoyed their visits to Kiawah and frequently brought friends with them. As a family we played a lot of tennis and golf over the years in Kiawah but, perhaps our favorite thing to do has always been to hang out and relax by our pool. The girls are all now out on their own. Two live in NYC and one in Chicago. But, they always manage to get down once or twice a year either with us or increasingly, on their own. We also own places in Mexico and Scottsdale and while we like visiting them very much, Kiawah was our first vacation real estate investment and it is where we really built a lot of family memories. It is a tranquil and very special place. We all love our Kiawah home and if we were to retain only one vacation property Kiawah would be the winner hands down.

Brian Williams purchased this house in 2000

Perfect Golf Getaway during PGA Championship

  • 5 of 5

My company hosted a retreat during the 2012 PGA Championship on Kiawah Island. Our guests had the pleasure of staying at Glen Eagle. From start to finish, the owner could not have been more helpful. He went out of his way to be accommodating--always quick to answer questions regarding the house or island access.

The house was beautiful--VERY clean and well maintained. I have stayed in many rental homes before and often felt the cleaning was lacking. However, everything at Glen Eagle was spotless. You could tell there was a pride in ownership not often seen in other rental properties. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The pool was a wonderful way to relax after a long day on the course. The bed linens and bath towels were plentiful, and the kitchen well-stocked. The beds were some of the most comfortable I've slept in on vacation.

I would definitely recommend this house for anyone looking for a nice getaway on Kiawah. The house was the perfect place for our guests to enjoy all that Kiawah has to offer. I would love to return!

The house was warm and welcoming. We felt at home right away.

  • 5 of 5

Having 5 bedrooms and bathrooms was awesome since we have older kids who want to spread out. The kitchen and adjacent family room were great places to gather, play games, eat and watch tv. We didn’t use the pool because of inclement weather but the owner had it all set up for us just in case. The house was a nice walk to the beach through a very pretty neighborhood. The beach was gorgeous and full of families and people walking and on bikes. The little area Freshfields was nice for a little shopping and grocery shopping. We took several trips into Charleston to spend the day and for dinners. It’s an easy drive and our location was a great way to have city time and quiet time on the island.

wonderful in every respect

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several wonderful Kiawah homes over the years, although this was the best for our 3 generation family. The owner was very thoughtful and genuinely interested in our happiness. The kitchen and furnishings were up-to-date and, unlike some rentals, homey at the same time. Outdoors, the pool and pool deck also wonderful, great golf course views, and close to Turtle Point golf and dining. Although not the closest house to the beach, it's easy to find, and, again, the pool was a big hit, especially with kids.

We've been coming to Kiawah (from Michigan) for 25 years, and I/we look forward to returning to this special place, the Williams Kiawah house.

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation! This property is beautiful and accommodated 2 families (total of 11 people) very comfortably. The furnishings and decor were beautiful; the beds and linens quite comfortable and elegant. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed preparing most of our meals there together. The grounds, surroundings, and golf course were beautiful. The parents who had to do a little work found the office and wifi to be very helpful. We enjoyed the pool, the bike ride to the beach, which honestly seemed to get shorter by the day, playing family games in the kitchen, and we played Yardzee (yard Yahtzee) in the spacious front yard. The quiet and private cul de sac provided a serene and picturesque location for us.. Brian was extremely responsive and accommodating with the very few needs we had. We cannot recommend this property highly enough. You will not be disappointed.

Wonderful home for family

Great family vacation property. Bright, fresh and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a multi-generation family trip and this house was perfect for us. It has three master bedrooms, lots of room and the pool was a big hit with everyone. We especially liked how bright and open the house was. There are lots of windows and the light just streams in. The house has lots of rooms so if people wanted to "get away" for awhile such was easily accommodated. We barbecued most nights on the pool deck and had a very relaxing time doing so. The owner was also very helpful in patiently answering our many questions and did so in a very responsive fashion. We have stayed in many VRBO properties over the years and this was definitely our best experience to date. We give it 5 thumbs 👍 up. A winner in all regards.
