About Joan R.

My husband and I have been coming to Kiawah with close friends for many years. We loved it from the start. It's a great get-away from the cold New England winters and is as beautiful in the fall as it is in the spring and summer. We enjoy golfing on the many great courses, walking or biking on the beach and hope our guests enjoy our home as if it were their own!

Joan R. purchased this house in 2005

Why Joan R. chose Vanderhorst Plantation

We love the tranquil ever changing views of the marsh. It is very private being at the end of a cul de sac.

What makes this house unique

Our home is located on the 3rd green of Osprey Point golf course. The many decks and porches are prefect for the first cup of coffee watching the first golfers of the day come through, or at the end of the day watching the sun go down on the marsh. The 11 mile sandy beach is only a bike ride or short car ride away, with free beach parking. We love going into Charleston because of the history of the city and the great shops and restaurants. Charleston reminds us in so many ways of Boston.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a glorious time in the sun and surf here on Kiawah! This is our first time here and we'll be back for sure. We took lots of bike rides and the coolest thing is we could ride on the beach! The kids were exhausted every night - so were the adults.

The mend golfed and had great weather for it. We aren't looking forward to leaving tomorrow. My sister saw a cougar.....Cool wildlife on the island, lots of beautiful birds. We watched the bluebirds making a nest right outside the back deck.

We had a great time ~ thanks for sharing your beautiful, top notch home...

We had a great time staying in Marsh Cove. Check in and out was uncomplicated and the owner was very quick to respond during the booking process. I highly recommend the property and congratulate the owners on maintaining the home to such a high standard.

Immaculate, Inviting Home for All Ages

  • 5 of 5

One of the reviews of this beautiful home that caught my eye was the description immaculate home. This was definitely true plus the amount of thought and detail to the floor plan, furnishings and out side decks were fanominal. Joan was always available before, during and after our vacation if needed. Even though we aren't golfers, we had a wonderful vacation riding bikes to discover the beauty of this island, relaxing and enjoying family meals and daily game nights. Several family members had to work remotely during our vacation so having multiple areas for them to work was definatey utilized. Thank you Joan for sharing your beautiful home, we felt very spoiled.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the Thanksgiving holidays at this beautiful home. It was immaculate! Nice open floor plan and fully stocked kitchen. The new furniture in the family room area was very comfortable and made us feel at home! Joan was great to work with and answered all our questions very efficiently. The back of the house sits on a nice par 3 so great views and very quiet. Would highly recommend staying at this home for any trip to Kiawah.

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fabulous week at this beautiful, immaculate vacation home. We were 3 couples, and there were superb accomodations for all of us. Joan was very friendly and helpful with lots of information on what to do in the area. The home is very comfortable, with a well-appointed kitchen, beautiful bathrooms, and multiple decks with beautiful views. Most of us had never been to Kiawah before, and we were thrilled at all the fun things to do. We rode bikes, went to the beach, golfed, kayaked, toured Charleston, Firefly Distillery, and Charleston Tea Plantation. We never realized what a Foodie Mecca this area is! Our two favorite local restaurants were Fat Hen and Crave. We are already planning when we can come back. And we all agreed when we do, it will definitely be at this fabulous home.

Wonderful home! It is well maintained, clean, and beautifully decorated. The views from living room and kitchen are amazing. The kitchen is well stocked for all your cooking needs. We loved watching the golfers each morning from the porch and deck. We had a wonderful visit and highly recommend this home!! We look forward to our next visit.

A beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this lovely home. As previous home owners on Kiawah Island, we were familiar with the area where this home was located and chose it for this reason. We rented bikes for our vacation and enjoyed riding all over the island. This home is very comfortable and has a lovely kitchen for preparing home cooked meals. The outdoor spaces were wonderful and we enjoyed all of them including the gas grill. We love being on a golf course and enjoyed walking the cart paths in the dusk hours when the golfers are no longer playing.

We highly recommend this property and hope to stay here again on future visits to Kiawah Island.
