About Kathy Guy

We live in Atlanta as do our three married daughters and 6 grandchildren. Golf, biking, tennis, swimming and the beach are a top priority for all of us, from oldest to youngest

Kathy Guy purchased this house in 2002

Why Kathy Guy chose Kiawah Island

We have vacationed at Kiawah since moving to Atlanta from the Northeast and our girls were little so when we decided to buy a beach house, Kiawah was the place! We wanted our grandchildren to experience all the fun and wonder that is Kiawah....the freedom to bike the island, wander the beautiful beach, check out the dolphins, alligators, deer, turtles, and yes, bobcats! Catch fish, amass a fantastic shell collection, conquer the ocean, make sand castles, be a kid...

Guestbook comments from the owner

"just a quick note to say THANK YOU for EVERYTHING!!! We truly had a wonderful stay at Kiawah. Your home was most accommodating for all of us. It's a gem, because the design is perfect with enough space and privacy for a group. I was wondering how that was going to work between my 20 year olds and my parents in their 70's! That could have been a recipe for major stress, but things could not have worked out any better. We ALL were very comfortable and completely thrilled. I am already planning a return trip. I will keep my eye on the VRBO calendar. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home."

Great house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Kiawah for 14 years and have always preferred the West Beach end of the island for it's ease of on and off the island as well as it's proximity to the beach and Night Heron amenities. This house has a great layout - with plenty of room for our party of 4 adults and 6 teens to spread out. It is a super easy walk or bike ride to the beach and having the chairs and beach equipment to borrow was a huge plus! Kitchen is well equipped as well. Will definitely stay here again.

Kiawah - The perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing in Kiawah for 20+ years. This was the first time staying in this home and we can't wait to go back in 2017!! We've stayed in a variety of different homes but hands down this was our favorite! It was perfect for us to be able to have our 2 sons and their families join us with our grandchildren. The home is spacious and very well kept. The great room upstairs with 2 trundle beds was perfect for our 4 granddaughters! Plenty of bathrooms and living space. Normally we have to rent some items to accomodate an infant, but this home is also equipped with a crib, high chair and a stroller which was awesome for our infant grandson. The location is perfect with just a short walk to the beach. Staying here made our vacation one of the best we've had in Kiawah!! The owners are wonderful to work with and respond very quickly.

Perfect for our combined families

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time saying in this home. It worked well for the group that we had. Over the years, our 2 families have vacationed at Kiawah Island together several times. This home worked perfectly as our now adult children have started families of their own.

Plenty of bed space and bathrooms for 12 people. Kitchen was well-equipped. Location was perfect. We could easily take our 1 yr old granddaughter to the beach in the morning, back to the house lunch and a quick nap, then back to the beach for afternoon fun. The outdoor shower was particularly helpful in rinsing off sand.

If our schedules align again, we hope to visit again! Kathy was FABULOUS to work with and quickly answered any and all questions (even the silly ones). Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

Family vacation

This was our 3rd time staying in this home. We love the layout and the kids enjoy the 2nd floor open room with trundle beds, TV and table. It is a short walk or bike ride to the beach. Great for families and friends! The owners are wonderful to work with and respond quickly.

Second year in a row that we booked this beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year in a row that we have rented this beautiful home. It suits our group of 10 to 12 people very well, and it never feels over crowded. Lots of room downstairs and upstairs. It's super close to the beach, just a 5 min walk to West Beach. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need. Lots of chairs and beach stuff too in the closet outside by the shower. Now if I could just get my family to agree for 2 weeks next year.

Thank you again, Kathy for everything!

Keeps us coming back every year

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Kathy's house for seven or eight years now, and it just keeps getting better. Just 2 blocks from the beach (5 min walk, 45 second bike ride), we love the West Beach location. Perfect for multiple families with the three bedrooms downstairs all with private bathrooms. Upstairs always turns into the kids' domain in our group... with a bedroom and loft area and separate bathroom. And we all love the outside shower!

The house is well equipped with beach towels, chairs, wagon, umbrellas, and beach toys. The kitchen has everything you need. Beds are comfortable and very nice sheets and towels... not the industrial kind often found in rentals. The house truly has everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation. Easy bike rentals delivered right to your door.

Thank you, Kathy, for having us back again. Looking forward to next year!

If you can bear to leave the activities at Kiawah, Charleston is a must! The city is divine, from the fun and entertaining carriage rides, walking tours, shopping, historical sites, the battery and harbor to the fabulous will never run out of things to see and do. Or hit one of the many historical plantations in the surrounding area for a change of pace!
