Currently the only opportunity to rent a home in Summer Islands, a secluded island surrounded by acres of green and golden marsh savannas and reached solely by way of a charming wooden bridge, this home guarantees the utmost privacy. As Bass Creek winds through the marsh, the landscape is continuously changing directed by the gentle ebb and flow of the tides. The home’s two-tiered dock is the perfect place to enjoy the view, fish, crab, kayak, or contact Bohicket Marina to have them pick you up for a chartered boat tour/fishing excursion. Unfortunately it is too shallow during low tide to keep a boat docked permanently but you can rent slips at nearby Bohicket Marina, they can help with tide charts and maps as well!

Wheeler Kearns designed this 4,650 square-foot residence to blend beautifully with its natural surroundings and create balance and symmetry within the home. A brick courtyard with iron gate, pool, and spa provides a unique entrance and sets the tone for the home. Featuring hardwood flooring, 11-foot ceilings with exposed beams, and access to the outdoor living spaces, the thoughtfully planned interior spaces are ideal for entertaining or relaxing with a view.

French doors topped with transoms line either side of the living room, with the south-facing opening to the screened porch overlooking marsh and the other offering access to the courtyard and pool(pool can be heated for additional $125 per day, 4 day minimum, 48 hours notice to turn on heater is required, spa heat is included). A granite-surround fireplace, purposefully placed in the center of the room, anchors the space.

Outfitted with granite countertops and custom cabinetry, the kitchen features a six-burner Viking cooktop and Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers. The adjacent breakfast room has a built-in beadboard bench and access to the screened porch. A formal dining room, located away from the main living areas for added privacy, can accommodate a crowd.

The master suite with marsh views, porch access, and walk-in closet adjoins a contemporary slate bathroom with his-and-hers decorative sinks, steam shower, and soaking tub.

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; Our Local Property Management team 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).

If you have the time take a short trip (35 Minutes) to Charleston, America's most charming southern city. There you'll find world class dining, shopping and lots of history to explore.

                                                            This is our 2nd stay at this quiet, well decorated home. The home is maintained to a high standard. All devices and appliances were in working order. The house is very clean compared to other rentals we've had. In the morning we took advantage of the outside decks that face the marsh. You can enjoy the wildlife and can hear the ocean. In the evening, you will bask in the glow of sunset as it settles over the marsh. This house allows you to enjoy all the wildlife/nature that Kiawah offers. Marsh and decks out back; front flagstone piazza with pool. ESPM rentals was able to accommodate 2 last minute request (heat the pool and provide seating on the upper decks). Thank You ESPM. We vacation every February on Kiawah and are already planning our 2019 stay. Were looking forward to being back at this lovely home. PS: For a local food recommendation, dont miss Crave Smokehouse off of Betsy Kerrigan Parkway. The buttermilk fried chicken is very good; and I've had "very good fried chicken" at the Glass Onion and at Husk. Portions are generous and you are likely to take left-overs home! The restaurant is spotless too. Enjoy

                                                            We had a great experience. The house was fabulous as was the view. I enjoyed the view from each room. The house is spacious and the bedrooms are all large. The bathrooms were large. I would rent again in a heartbeat. The great thing about this company is the service. I cannot remember the young man's name "on call" but I called three times and he answered each call immediately and fixed the problem: from my not understanding the fireplace, to a bulb replacement to my not understanding a TV. He was patient and helpful and FRIENDLY. I so appreciate that. If you want seclusion and luxury at Kiawah, this is the place to be. Thanks for sharing your home.

                                                            We recently rented this property for my father’s 75th bday celebration. There was plenty of room for all 12 of us to comfortably coexist. The location of this rental is perfect, great views, great privacy and easy to get to. There are a few minor cracks and chipped paint because this house is a little older, however, it was spotless and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the hot tub, rode bikes to the magnificent beach and dined at the incomparable Ocean Room at Kiawah’s Sanctuary hotel. Perfect family getaway property and we would definitely return!

                                                            There’s a pillow in the master bedroom that says “the best things in life are free.” This house was amazing, not free, but worth every penny.

                                                            Awesome place to stay!
