Location: A short ride to Night Heron Park and 2 fabulous pools and to 10 miles of beautiful beach. 273 Summer Tanager Ct is located on a quiet 5 home cul-de-sac, a mile from the front gate.

View: 273 overlooks the 9th and 10th fairways of Kiawah's 4.5 star Cougar Point Golf Course and a large lagoon separating them. One can see the 9th and 10th greens as well the 10th tees. In the evening, see the fabulous sunset over the lagoon and golf course.

Residence: This house is designed with wide windows allowing sunlight in the living room during the morning and afternoon. The master bedroom has a panoramic view of the lagoon and golf course. All rooms are outfitted with the latest and large TVs, wall mounted for optimum viewing. The TVs range from 32' to 51'. The kitchen has its own 32' TV.

The living room has a brick fire place centering the room. The furnishings include a brand new 3 piece Mahogany leather couch set with dual reclining sofas, a love seat, and a glider recliner, which faces the fire place affixed with a 51' TV mounted right to the brick.

The master suite has a cottage retreat king panel bed, dresser, night stands, and a weatherly set king size mattress. The 42' TV is wall mounted and compliments the cottage retreat matching furniture.

Why Kiawah: The Summer 2012 issue of Coastal Living ranked Kiawah Island #1 as the “most blissful place to live along the coasts of the United States”. Writer Tracey Martin says, “If heaven had a zip code, it would have to be 29455. This exquisite barrier island is home to 10 miles of unspoiled fine-sand beach; wild-growing palmetto oak, and magnoalia trees; a veritable Noah’s ark’s worth of mammals and rare birds; and 1.626 lucky residents. With small-town charms and proximity to the gracious urbanity of Charleston, Kiawah makes the ideal possible: a vacation-like lifestyle with easy access to commerce and culture. Home to five award-winning golf courses, the island will play host to the PGA Championship in August. Frankly, life here is one sweet day of play after another- biking on the 30-plus miles of paved paths, or shopping at local hub Freshfields Village (at the crossroads of Kiawah, Seabrook, and Johns islands). Residents often kayak down the tree-shaded Kiawah River to watch egrets, herons, and bald eagles enjoying their sanctuary. And when the sun goes down on this paradise, you’ll be amazed at the sea of stars above.”

About Ivan Kovac

My mom visited Charleston on a medical conference and toured Kiawah with fellow doctors. She brought my dad and me down on a summer vacation and we fell in love. We purchased a 1 bedroom villa in 2004, which we still own, but I grew up and wanted my own bedroom. We purchased this beautiful private home on the 4.5 star Cougar Point Golf Course.

Ivan Kovac purchased this house in 2012

Why Ivan Kovac chose Kiawah Island

My home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac. This beautiful home offers superb lagoon views, as well as views of Cougar Point's 9th and 10th fairways. The spacious living room showcases golf course and lagoon views through floor-to-ceiling windows. The living room opens to a deck with entrances to the master suite and the screened porch.

Lovely island, resort AND property!

  • 4 of 5

We had never been to Kiawah, but have stayed at resorts around the world and I have to say this was a well-appointed resort with multiple pool options for families and those without; a clean, wide, and long beach line; a myriad of food options to suit all tastes and palates; and such incredibly helpful staff - I'd put this up high on our vacation experiences overall! The only reason I didn't rate this a 5 is that there were a few issues when we arrived, and the house is being updated slowly so parts of it were a little dated, but all tolled, a really great, long weekend with family!

Owner's Response: The renter was knowledgeable about travel and Resorts and turned out to be a wonderful guest. The Resort alerted me that she left the place in excellent condition. Her response has alerted me to keep making updates and we are following her advise. I look foward to having her back the next time her family visits The Kiawah Island Resort.

Perfect for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a great time visiting Kiawah and staying in this beautiful home. We were a short bike ride away from the beach and having access to the resort pools, especially at Night Heron, was perfect for the family. We woke up every morning to having coffee with golf course views and ended the day with a bike ride into the sunset. This home is centrally located and great for families.

Seamless holiday in this lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this peaceful golf course home overlooking two fairways and large lagoon with jumping fish. Kiawah's many amenities (including bicycle rentals which are a must) makes the holiday seamless and easy especially when you have teens. This home is very handy to all that is Kiawah including the beach and pools. Never once did I wonder if my teens were okay.

Honeymoon in Kiawah

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at your lovely home on the gorgeous 5 star Cougar Point golf course. Every night we enjoyed not only a fabulous sight of the sun setting over the golf lagoon view, but a truly upscale home. Your central location one block from the Night Heron Park complex of pools and water parks. We walked to the beach easily, as well as rode our bikes for exercise and entertainment.

My husband is a big sports fan and loved the concept of mounted TVs in every room, including a 51" in the large living room. At one point my husband was watching the golf tournament and went from room to room without missing a beat. We loved the upscale furniture in the beautiful living room which had well appointed leather furniture for great viewing and comfort. The large windows overlooking the lagoon and golf course afforded brightness and comfort to a very cozy three bedroom, three full bath. There is a TV mounted in every room, including the new full bath!

The master suite is absolutely stunning, from a king sized bed you have another breathtaking view of the lagoon on the beautiful golf course.

The kitchen is well appointed with table and chairs and also included a wall mounted TV. We have already reserved another week in your beautiful home. Can't wait!!

Great Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

My family just returned from our Kiawah vacation and we are already counting down the days until we can return.

While we go Kiawah every year, this was the first time renting a house. First of all, the owner returned my emails very quickly. The house is on a quiet street and in a great location close to all amenities Kiawah has to offer. The house was very roomy with plenty of space for my family. It has a really neat floor plan and is equipt with many new updates (the master bed is like sleeping on a cloud!)My kids loved the fact that the resort amenities were included with this property. This house had everything we needed for a stress free and relaxing week.

A week was just not long enough and hopfully next year we can stay longer...
