Description

This luxurious custom-built Kiawah Island vacation rental, located at 116 Bufflehead Drive, features 5 bedrooms, spacious open living spaces, a screened porch and private pool. The beach is an easy 5 minute bike ride.

Built in 2009, this custom-built home is located in the quiet Egret Pintail neighborhood of Kiawah’s exclusive Vanderhorst Plantation. It features expansive views of Osprey Point’s 16th fairway and is a short 12 minute walk to the beach. Designed with families and vacationers in mind, the home features a spacious open floor plan, luxurious furnishings throughout, and fabulous outdoor living spaces.

The bright and airy living room showcases picturesque views and natural light streaming in through a wall of French doors leading to the deck with pool and gas grill. The main living space offers plenty of comfortable seating (new sofa as of summer 2019), wall-mounted flat-screen TV, and access to the screened porch and pool deck. The stunning, fully-equipped and well-stocked kitchen is open to the living and dining room and showcases granite countertops, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, beadboard ceilings, and a center island with farmhouse sink and bar stool seating. The light-filled dining area offers a large table with comfortable seating for twelve and has access to the deck. The first floor luxurious master suite offers a king bed, a private bathroom with double sinks and large shower with rain showerhead, and access to the screened porch with cozy seating. The powder room and spacious laundry room complete the first floor. Four additional bedrooms with bathrooms are located on the second floor. The second floor master suite features a king bed, wall-mounted flat-screen TV, writing desk, and private bathroom with shower. Two bedrooms offer queen beds and private bathrooms with showers. The fourth bedroom features two full beds, wall-mounted flat-screen TV, and private bathroom with large shower. Unlike many other rental homes, the gas fireplaces in the living room and screened porch are available for guest use.

The home’s fantastic outdoor living spaces invite guests to relax in utmost comfort. Whether dining al fresco, taking a swim in the pool, enjoying morning coffee or evening cocktails, or lounging in the screened porch, guests may soak in the beautiful surroundings throughout the year. The pool is approximately 23ft x 11ft. The garage houses a ping pong table for a little friendly competition. Additionally, the home offers 6 backpack style beach chairs and a rolling cart for toting items to and from the beach.

Guest reservations of 3 to 21 nights come with a valuable credit to use towards beach gear rentals during your stay! The credit amount for this property is $300. You may use your credit for bicycles, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach carts, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and more – the choice is yours!

During your stay on Kiawah Island, be sure to enjoy biking on the 30 miles of flat bike trails, golfing on one of five world-class courses, playing tennis, crabbing, fishing, swimming, and boating. Many families also enjoy the kids’ camp and nature programs at Night Heron Park.

Rates may change prior to booking and do not include fees and taxes.
Stays of 3 nights will be charged an additional fee for housekeeping.

We had a wonderful stay at 116 Bufflehead. Very well appointed home with all the tools necessary for cooking great meals and enjoying all that Kiawah has to offer. The home was clean with spacious bedrooms and a large kitchen table for playing card games etc etc. Two thumbs up and we have already booked it for two weeks next summer.

A beautiful, clean and mostly well-maintained home. The one upstairs TV was missing a remote and couldn't be used. Also the dishwasher racks seemed unstable, possibly broken. The management company responded almost immediately with a clogged toilet. Overall good week!
Manager response on 2018-07-23 - Response from AKERS ELLIS RENTALS, LLC
Hi Laura, Thank you for your review. We would have been happy to bring over a new remote and taken a look at the dishwasher racks while you were here, had we known. We apologize that you ran into those issues while on vacation! We will definitely take a look and correct those problems. We are pleased that, overall, you enjoyed your stay in this lovely home. Please let us know when you would like to return to the island!

Another great vacation in Kiawah!!

This is a great location for everything! A hop and skip to the beach and a bike ride away to the Sanctuary store and Osprey Golf Course loaded with gators. The house is well laid out, the kitchen very well stocked and the management company extremely responsive. Kiawah can't be topped for a great family vacation and this house is right in the middle of it! Because we were there 6 wks (and changed sheets) we noticed things a weekend guest may not. The bedding especially needs replacing, at least pillows and see through sheets. Comforters and bed pads need laundering. All in all, a great six weeks and hope to be back!

We have been visiting Kiawah for over 20 years.  This house rates in the top 2 we have stayed in.  Everything was clean and the quality of the towels, sheets, etc was good.  The amenities in the kitchen were great.  Only thing I would add would be a pancake griddle.  Also, we couldn’t get the food processor to work.  Other than that, it seems that the owners  and your staff thought of everything we needed!  We will definitely be back!

We loved our stay at 116 Bufflehead Drive . The house was so accommodating for our family of eight adults and 4 kids, ages 5 and under. The size of the house, the bathrooms within each bedroom, the pool, and the very well stocked kitchen were bonuses. The house is very well maintained. We also liked the close proximity to the beach. We have stayed on Kiawah Island many times before, but always in the condos. We truly enjoyed being together under one roof. We all agreed that this was an excellent family vacation!

We were very happy with our vacation at 116 Bufflehead.  The home was gorgeous, with all the amenities we were looking for.  We found it clean and stocked when we arrived.  The pool was a definite hit with the children.  It was quite a walk to the beach, much longer than we anticipated from the rental literature.  We wound up shuttling people back and forth in our cars.  That aside, we would definitely rate both the rental property and your company a '5'.  The mobile app, the preprinted gate passes, and the door code allowed us to go directly to the house without a 'check-in' somewhere else.  This was much appreciated after a very long day of driving.  We will definitely look to your agency for our vacation next year.  This was our 25th year at Kiawah, and we look forward to many more.  

Great Home!

We just completed a six week stay at 116 Bufflehead. The home is beautiful and located perfectly for the beach, biking and walking. The owner called to make sure all was well and was very open to solving any problems we may encounter. Akers is the best agency we have ever worked with. We had some small issues that were immediately addressed. Beautiful music was playing as we entered and they stopped by to make sure we were settled in and happy. We will be there next year and they took notes on our preferences. The only reason for four stars on 'general condition' is that the bedding is tired and needs updating. Other than that all issues were addressed and we had a wonderful stay!
