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. Please contact us at

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 Kiawah Island

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!

Best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to take our kids and grandkids on a family vacation to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. One of my co-workers had been to Kiawah Island about 10 years ago and had so much fun that we decided this would be our destination. This house was the most perfect place for us to stay. There were enough bedrooms and bathrooms that nobody had to share. The pool was a huge hit. The location was perfect - very quiet and centrally located. The kitchen was very well stocked and we made family dinners the entire week that we were there. By the second day, everyone was more relaxed than ever and we starting thinking about returning next year. Seriously, this house is so great and has set the bar very high for ever going anyplace else.

FANTASTIC A true 5 Star home!!

  • 5 of 5

Each summer I rent a house for my family which consists of my three daughters, their husbands and my three grandchildren. We are a total family of ten so we always like our own bedrooms and bathrooms. This beautiful home provided not only the perfect accommodations, but also, all the amenities that anyone would love to have. The kitchen was amazing with every single item you would need. We also used the BBQ grill and it was top of the line. The bathrooms had luxurious towels and plenty of hot water for showers. Honestly, we did not want to leave to return home! Thank you, Julie, for providing us with such a wonderful home to spend our family week together. Sincerely, Denna Shiben

Awesome week at Awesome home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this Snowy Egret home for 2 years and want to make it a family tradition. All of our family loved the home, the pool, the 4 King-sized beds and all the extras provided for us: Ping Pong table, Beach chairs, sand toys, a great grill, pool on the deck and a full, well-supplied kitchen with available paper products, laundry detergent. . and on and on. . . There was a problem with the stove on Memorial day and the owner called and had someone out to fix it within 3 hours! We highly recommend the home and homeowners!
