Overview

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; 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).

Reviewer Comments:

The private boardwalk to the beach and internal elevator were especially helpful for the 90 year olds. It was clean and well appointed but would suggest that additional bath towels be made available in each bathroom. Also, had a little bit of a panic when I still hadn't received the parking permit after 5pm the day before we were supposed to leave home and check in. After my call to the emergency after-hours number, the manager called me back, was gracious, and explained that he was working late and still planning to email me the permit. Still, I would have preferred to avoid that momentary anxiety.

We enjoyed our stay at the house. It was large enough to accommodate our group and was in the perfect location. The beach proximity and access was a bonus. We felt the house could use a little updating/maintenance, especially in the kitchen and pool area.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was SO beautiful. Definitely the best house at the beach I've stayed it. You can tell it is professionally decorated with very high end furnishings. Very short walk to the we split time between the beach and the pool. The downstairs is almost like an apartment unto itself. The kitchen has premium appliances and is super equipped. The outdoor areas have plentiful chairs, swings, dining areas. We had 6 adults and 2 children, and this was a perfect place for us. I would highly recommend it for any type group looking for a luxury place to relax at Kiawah!
