Kiawah Island, South Carolina
Beautiful and Serene Kiawah Island
Your stay in our charming home will leave you feeling refreshed and peaceful. We are only 90 seconds from the beach! Wake in the morning to the sun rising over the front porch, and the sound of the ocean greeting the beach. Take your coffee across the street to the beach or sit on the front porch. Either way, you'll enjoy the cool breeze and the sound of crashing waves.
Our home was built in 1978 and was completely renovated in 2003. The renovation, featured in “Charleston Home,” transformed it into a retreat with timeless style. The floor plan is open and welcoming. The kitchen boasts double-ovens, a gas cooktop and granite counter-tops. The dining room is open to the kitchen and family room and is comfortable for a large group.
Our home sleeps 10-12 people. In the main house, we have three spacious bedrooms with luxurious beds; one king, one queen and two twin beds. The master bedroom has a spacious bathroom and closet, and there are comfortable chairs for quiet reading and relaxation in all of the bedrooms. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV and DVD player.
The dining room is open to the kitchen and family room. Upstairs, there is a loft that can be used for movie watching, quiet reading or playing games. We have stocked the house with beach toys/chairs, children’s books, movies and games. Attached by the front porch is a free-standing bunk house that has a family/media room, spacious bathroom and a bunk room that sleeps 6 in two full/twin built-in bunk beds. This is a great space for kids, grandma and grandpa or for young families needing a quite retreat for nap time. There is a large flat screen TV and blu-ray DVD player to entertain you on rainy days in the family room!
Finally, to keep you cool, there is a pool on the back deck. It overlooks the lagoon and has a built-in bench for in-the-water seating.
Kiawah has 10 miles of undisturbed Atlantic beach and five world-renowned golf courses, including serving as host to the 2012 PGA Championship. It's widely recognized as one of the best beaches in South Carolina - or anywhere! Bride’s Magazine named the Charleston area, highlighting Kiawah Island, as one of the world’s best honeymoon destinations. National Geographic Traveler called Kiawah Island the "Second Most Romantic Beach in America," and the Travel Channel honored the island as one of the "Top Ten Beaches for Families." There is over 30 miles of bike paths on the island, a plethora of wildlife, natural vegetation and serenity. Fishing, crabbing, kayaking the river, riding bikes and watching the dolphins feed at low tide are some of our favorite pastimes. The historic city of Charleston is only 21 miles away.

Perfect Lowcountry Family Getaway
We loved our stay at Beautiful and Serene Kiawah Island. The owners had recently updated the paint and interior decorating, so it is even better than in the photos shown here, and in many ways feels like new construction. It's a great second-row house with easy access to the beach, but also close to the main entrance and the amenities there. There are 3 bedrooms in the main house, but the fourth is its own detached room/living room/bathroom. This was perfect for our family. ”

Beautiful and Serene Kiawah Island
Beautiful and Serene Kiawah Island truly lives up to its name. It is a gracious, nicely appointed home in a peaceful and private location just steps from the beach. Michelle was very communicative and has taken great care to make guests feel welcome. The home is well organized and house instructions are user friendly. We appreciated the opportunity to stay at this lovely property. ”
We stayed at this beautiful home in Kiawah over Thanksgiving, great house for teenagers because of the bunk house with 2 sets of bunk beds, the bottom bed is a queen/full size. All beds in the house were extremely comfortable, nice location across the street from the beach. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need.”
This is a great Kiawah beach house. The owners have done a great job at organizing the house for renters. The kitchen is fully-stocked, including a nice collection of spices. The back deck as a great view of the lagoon - we saw our friend the alligator nearly every day - he even gave us a mating call! The location to the beach is as advertised - a short 90 second walk. The linens and towels are all high quality. Michelle - thanks so much for sharing you lovely home on 3rdhome!”
