About the property

Spacious Private Home, 6 Bedrooms, 5 1/2 Baths, Sleeps 12 - 14

This beautiful home is on the edge of the marsh and was newly renovated in 2014. The IPE deck and salt water pool were added to provide you with the complete Kiawah Island vacation experience! Take a short bike ride to the beach in the morning, relax by the pool in the afternoon!

The pool is 24 feet long, and has a bench along the entire length so you can relax in the water and look out across the marsh at the snowy egrets and ospreys. The deck was built around a beautiful old live oak that provides wonderful shade over the outdoor dining area. The screened in porch has a full seating area and a cafe table and chairs.

The home is situated on a large lot that juts out into the marsh. The pool, deck and screened porch are essentially surrounded by marsh on three sides providing maximum privacy and wonderful evening ocean breezes.

This home has 6 bedrooms on two floors. The first floor has two guest suites, each with private baths. One of the suites is surrounded by windows and has a beautiful view of the marsh. It has a private door to the deck and pool, and it includes a queen size bed. The second bedroom has a king size bed.

There are four bedrooms on the second floor. The master bedroom suite on the second floor has a king size bed, a private deck overlooking the marsh and an amazing steam shower. A family suite consisting of two bedrooms is connected by a shared bath. One of these two bedrooms has a king size bed with marsh views and is literally situated in the branches of an old live oak. The other bedroom in the family suite has a queen size bed and a full size bed (located in a dormer window). The fourth bedroom includes a king sized bed and private bath.

All of the bedrooms have ceiling fans, and flat screen televisions with built in DVD players.

The living room provides plenty of seating with french doors that open onto the deck. It is equipped with a large, 55 inch flat screen television and a Blu Ray/DVD player. We provide a wonderful selection of DVDs, games and paperback books. The stereo system has a connection for your ipod/iPhone/ipad to play your music.

The kitchen was renovated in 2014 and is equipped for someone who loves to cook! A Viking Professional 4 burner gas range, a french door refrigerator, and a marble island provide a comfortable area to prepare your food. The kitchen is open to the dining area which has a long, wood farm table that seats 10-12.

The laundry room next to the kitchen has a small cold drink refrigerator/freezer, and a second microwave.

Centered between the dining room and screened in porch is a lovely sun room. This is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning as the sun is beginning its move across the marsh. Or, enjoy a good book (or a nap!) in the afternoon, while still part of the action since it also opens out onto the deck and pool!

The home is located near Osprey Point golf course, and the Ocean Golf Course. The beach access point has parking available making transporting beach gear and non-bike riders a breeze. This part of the beach is pristine and absolutely beautiful! We also provide beach chairs.

In the fall, winter and spring, the pool can be heated for an additional charge. The garage is available and includes a ping pong table.

We use a local management company to make sure all your needs are met. The property manager will provide groceries and other services upon request.

About Owner

Our family has been coming to Kiawah for over 20 years. As a Charleston native, I believe we can offer our renters local knowledge that will enhance their stay. We consider our rental property as a family run business and we take personal pride in making sure all of our guests have a wonderful time. We hope you will consider our home for your next visit to Kiawah!

Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why Owner chose Vanderhorst Plantation

We often travel with large groups, other family members, friends, young children and grandparents. We wanted a home that would accommodate these groups and the home has a perfect layout for large groups. The design incorporates large gathering spaces but also private areas to get away and relax. The spacious layout centered around the pool is perfect for this.

What makes this house unique

Marsh view, heated saltwater pool, and 6 bedrooms.

A Dream Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It's been over a week since our girls' weekend to Kiawah ended, and we are still fantasizing about going back! The house was amazing--clean, beautiful and spacious, with plenty of bathrooms and sleeping space for ten girls. Morning sun spilled into the living and dining areas as we leisurely enjoyed conversation, coffee, and breakfast. We spent hours lounging in the sun and enjoying the perfect temperature of the pool water. Not enough time to read all the books in the house, sadly! The DVDs looked great, but we enjoyed each other's company too much to turn on the TV. The kitchen was a cook's dream, with every resource necessary to concoct a few cocktails, fix a delicious meal, and store the leftovers! The house was a reasonable distance from the grocery store, restaurants, and the resort as well. Julie was extremely helpful during the planning process and the office called to ensure that we had everything we needed. Thank you so much for everything...we'd return tomorrow if we could!

Spacious Home, Beautiful View, Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this home! The quiet setting, beautiful views and roomy interior were perfect for our large group. The bedrooms and common areas are all very nice and beautifully decorated. Julie went above and beyond before, during and after our stay to make sure that we had an enjoyable time. With many rentals to choose from, that goes a long way. The pool heating was a bit expensive and the kitchen appliances could use some fine tuning, but neither would be cause to not return to this great Kiawah home. We would definitely stay again!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The entire house was SO well equipped down to every last detail. I loved how everything was labeled and the kitchen fully stocked with everything we needed. The home was very clean and there is plenty of room for multiple families. The beds were very comfortable and decor was just beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay. The owner Julie, was wonderful to work with and gave us lots of information about the house and the area prior to our arrival. The heated pool was amazing!! Overall the home was beautiful and we had a wonderful vacation! We would highly recommend the property!

Warm regards,

Melissa and Kevin

Great house my wife’s birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

The house is well appointed with plenty of room for all. Very spacious bedrooms and common areas. The pool was an added bonus and was perfect for us to lounge in after a day at the beach. We all loved the place and hope to get back soon.
