About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 15

Welcome to 43 Surfsong, the perfect Kiawah getaway house!

This beautiful oceanfront home is within the exclusive Vanderhorst Plantation neighborhood with wonderful ocean views from all three levels. This oceanfront, Chris Rose-designed home offers 2,300 square feet of porches and decks and 5,097 square feet of interior space that is easily accessible via the home’s elevator.

The first floor welcomes you with a front covered porch and a delightful back pool and deck area that showcases the ocean views and a private boardwalk to the beach. All three of the bedrooms on this level boast great views and access to the incredible outdoors beyond; two have access to and overlook the pool area, while the third opens to the front porch. Separating the bedrooms is a family room – which could also be used as a tv/gaming room or a study – complete with a wet bar with granite countertops, a sink and an icemaker.

Using an open reverse floorplan to fully accentuate the coastal views and setting, the second floor is home to the great room. This space is professionally decorated and tastefully designed with hardwood floors, custom moldings, a granite-surround fireplace, and a wall lined in glass-paned windows and sliding doors offering access to the outdoor living spaces and beach beyond. The recently remodeled kitchen features high-end, stainless steel appliances, including a Bosch dishwasher, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Thermador double ovens, and a six-burner range with griddle. Furthermore, with its hardwood floors, granite countertops and beadboard accents, this is a kitchen everyone will love spending time in. The second floor also includes yet another bedroom that opens to a balcony porch with two lovely, inviting bed swings.

Upstairs is the exquisite third floor master suite. On summer mornings, enjoy the sunlight over the ocean horizon from the private deck, and for chilly fall evenings, a stone surround fireplace warms the space and creates a glowing ambiance. Coastal accents include shining hardwood floors and a vaulted beadboard ceiling. The master bath has a large frameless glass shower and a jet tub. The third level also includes a bonus room which can be used as an office as well as an extra sleeping room for guests. It has a beautiful desk/workspace and a “hidden” queen-sized murphy bed.

As our guest, you will have access to 5 Championship Golf Courses – including The Ocean Course – the location of the 2012 PGA Championship; The Kiawah Island Resort Tennis Center - #1 ranked by Tennis Resorts Online; Free Wireless Internet Access; and full concierge services to assist you with arranging all of the details of your trip, including transportation, stocking the cottage with groceries before your arrival, setting up bike rentals and beach chairs, dinner reservations, and arranging trips into Charleston. Local Property Management staff is on hand in case of emergencies and their friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff can assist you with any needs throughout your stay. Additional housekeeping services are also available during your stay (mid-week clean or daily trash and tidy).

No smoking and no pets allowed. Pool is on a heat pump and can not be heated in the winter, only Spring and Fall. $25/day (minimum of 4 days) to use heat pump (water will not be very warm if it is under 60 degrees outside. Best for use when temps are in the 70's

This was our first time coming to Kiawah with both married kids and grandchildren. Our kids have fond memories of Kiawah vacations when they were young and wanted to continue the tradition. This lovely home provided the perfect place to do that. It was beautiful, comfortable, clean and accommodated our needs down to the hanging swing chairs that provided our daughter a wonderful spot to feed the baby. Perfect house, perfect location. None of us wanted to leave and that says it all.

43 Surfsong was a perfect retreat for our two families to share a vacation. The amenities within are exceptional - well-stocked, high-end, everything you could want. The layout of the home works great for a big group and the location can't be beat. We hope to return again!

First week in June took our kids, their spouses and our grandkids to 43 Surfsong and we all had an incredible time. The house was perfect, the pool was perfect, the proximity to the stores, ocean, Charlestown, etc... tea perfect too. We've been doing this (big family vacation) every two years, for a while now, and this place is the first one we've considered as a repeat location. We were blessed with GREAT weather (out of the 7 days we were there, only 1 day with any rain-unreal) able to watch , as a family, our Cleveland Cavaliers play and WIN the NBA Finals capping off a vacation THIS FAMILY WILL NEVER FORGET! We thank GOD for blessing our family as he has and keeping us all safe during the trip. I recommend ESPM Vacation Rentals wholeheartedly.
