A great getaway for family & friends! This 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom adorable home is in one of the many, quiet neighborhoods on Kiawah Island. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach or you can hop on a rented bike and pedal to the Atlantic. You can also drive to the Straw Market & access the beach from there. Right on the Cougar Point golf course, it sleeps 8 people comfortably. We welcome ALL religions, nationalities, genders in our safe and comfortable space.
These things can seem so impersonal so I am going to buck the trend and tell you about my house and my family. We purchased this house about a decade ago when our children were younger. We came to Kiawah every summer as it was a perfect space to escape the hustle and bustle of NYC. My kids are older now and we won't be spending summers here. It is my hope that you would create the same type of memories I did with my family. The house itself is cozy and a bit quirky with tons of personality!

I live in New York so I will not be here with you as you enjoy Kiawah. But fear not, I have a great property manager who is just a phone call away should anything come up. You can also reach me via the Air BnB app.
The Cougar Point golf course (where our home is located) is being renovated until October of this year however that will not impact your stay with us.
