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:

Our family has visited Kiawah many times in the past 17 years and this was my favorite of the homes we've rented. There were 11 of us, ranging in age from 18-65. I loved the layout, the lush grounds, the beach access, the porches, the bed swings, the pool and surrounding deck. Kitchen was great. AC was great. It is conveniently located midway East on the island. We saw great wildlife, including a family of bobcats. Highly recommend this for groups with older children. Both Hilary and Carol of ESPM were very helpful.

Overall- a 10. Issues with controlling the A/C on the 3 levels was an issue. We also assumed that an Ocean Home would have ample beach chairs. The only other issue was not having fitted sheets for the beds. Every day, there were problems remaking each bed. We would again rent from yourCompany & this house

Owner's Response: Thank you for your suggestions! There is a different a/c unit and thermostat for each of the three levels, it is a very large home and with guests opening and closing doors/windows and going out to the multiple decks, etc it can take a bit longer to reach cooler temps. I will speak with the housekeeping company about your fitted sheet suggestion. Please let us know next time you'd like to come down, we'd love to have you return!

Reviewer Comments:

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.
