About the property

5 Bedrooms + Media Room, 4 Bathrooms, 10-12 Sleeps

Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac across the street from the Kiawah marsh, my rental is situated on one of the most beautiful lots in the neighborhood with the most striking view of the lagoon. Windowed walls and deck access, found throughout the home, take full advantage of the view.

The open floor plan with plenty of shared living spaces is ideal for entertaining friends and family. A vaulted ceiling and lagoon view highlight the spacious living room. Adjacent to the main living area, a sitting room features access to the deck overlooking the lagoon.

A guest suite is at the first floor with a Queen size bed and a full bath. Fully equipped, the kitchen has a center island with seating and offers plenty of storage and preparation room.The adjacent sun room, with lagoon views and skylights, opens to the deck and gives the chef a beautiful space to relax while waiting for the proverbial pot to boil.The dinning room also opens to the media room. The media room has a full-size sleeper sofa which provides additional sleeping space.

The Upstairs, the master suite is a comfortable suite with King size bed and features a bathtub, dual vanities, sky-line, separate shower, and walk-in closest. There are additional two bedrooms and a bonus room upstairs. The two bedrooms (2nd & 3rd), one with King size bed and the other with Queen size bed, share a full bath. The 3rd bedroom connects to the bonus room, which has two Full size beds and separate full bath, ideal for kids/teenages room. The laundry room is also upstairs.

My rental is about 1.2 mile/10 minutes bike ride to the beach.

About Jae Tang

We live in Columbia, SC and we have two daughters (Maggie and Bella). We love visiting Kiawah and Charleston. We have token Maggie bicycling, Kayaking, fishing, cracking and etc. at Kiawah, creating some lovely memories as a family. We hope you will enjoy your visit to Kiawah as much as we do!

Jae Tang purchased this house in 2012

Why Jae Tang chose Kiawah Island

We fell in love with Kiawah on our very first visit to the island in the summer of 2012, and we were very blessed to have the property purchased in the winter of 2012. The house was originally built in 1985 and has a lot of its unique characters. Although some area of the house needs improvements, and we have slowly made some upgrades, we love it as it was.

My husband and I picked out all the furniture and accessories for the house, and we really enjoyed the process of decorating this house. We plan to renovate kitchen and bathrooms as our budget allows.

What makes this house unique

You can grill at the deck while watching the alligator swimming around to say hi, and you can cast your line and catch some red fish, bream, crack... etc from the pond by the house, or you can ride to the beach or around the island.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Amazing Wedding Weekend Headquarters!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this gorgeous property for 5 nights during my wedding weekend on the Island. My wedding was at Osprey Point Clubhouse and it was a wonderful central location for incoming family to stop by and receive welcome bags, snacks, and to just visit in between wedding activities. 10 of us stayed at the house very comfortable, however using the house and deck at one point we comfortably fed 40 family members brunch. The house is absolutely gorgeous with lots of natural light on the first floor and the owners are very communicative. We found the house clean and it only needs a few minor updates to make it a true 5 star palace. However, we had no complaints and everyone raved about how comfortable the beds were. We will definitely use the residence again during the summer. And you simply cannot beat the lagoon view!

A few things to note:

The Kiawah shuttle was not keen on picking us up from the house without a bit of pushing. Apparently they dont' necessarily serve privately owned homes-so keep that in mind when planning on island transportation

Lovely home, lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

We were the first people to stay after Hurricane Matthew and the island had been hit hard but the owners had done a great job getting everything cleaned up and keeping in touch with us to let us know how the house was. The house was perfect for what we needed (celebrating a first birthday and my niece's wedding) and we really enjoyed being on Kiawah. It is just as lovely inside as it is in the photos and the owners were very communicative leading up to our stay. We would definitely stay there again were we to go back to Kiawah. Oh! The beds are SUPER comfortable. We were looking at the mattresses to maybe buy one they were so comfy and the views are fab from every one of the main rooms downstairs.

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 athletes staying on Kiawah for their Triathlon and chose this house, which could not have been better suited to our needs. There were plenty of beds, a table to fit us all and most anything one could ask for to make the stay nice. The Masters bed was super comfortable and the bathroom very spacious. For any athletes staying on Kiawah for a race - this house was perfectly located. The host, Jae, was very accommodating and checked in often to ensure we had all we needed to make our stay comfortable.

Fantastic Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My immediate family, my siblings, and their families had a fabulous week in this home. We especially enjoyed the spacious kitchen and the large sitting rooms. Lovely setting; beautiful view of surrounding nature; perfect location for fun bike rides to the beach! Owner was very helpful as we made our arrangements for this week.

Wonderful stay and accommodating hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My group of 10 had a wonderful stay in this home. We arrived with 5 couples and each of us was able to have our own private room. The kitchen is the highlight of this home! With all 10 people in the kitchen we never felt cramped or crowded. Our favorite part of the day was coming together and the beautiful dining room table to share good food and drinks! The hosts were extremely helpful and responsive to any questions we had upon arriving at the house. We would certainly stay here again and recommend this home to any family or friends staying on the island!

Awesome Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a girls weekend over Memorial Day! It was much bigger inside and just as beautiful as the pictures. We absolutely loved the back porch and view of the lagoon. The owner was great at communicating before our trip and during our stay to make sure that we had everything that we needed. Just a quick drive to the beach!
