Description

This Kiawah Island vacation rental home, located at 24 Bufflehead Drive, features 5 bedrooms, a private heated pool, stunning views of Canvasback Pond, and is about a 12 minute walk to the beach.

The elegant, custom-designed home is in a prime location on Bufflehead, convenient to beach access and Osprey Point Golf Course. The well-appointed interior includes vaulted and coffered ceilings, hardwood floors, and ample windows. The living room features plenty of comfortable seating and a wall-mounted flat-screen TV flanked by custom built-ins. Two glass doors lead to the pool deck. The gourmet kitchen showcases premier appliances, granite countertops, and a spacious center island with seating. The adjacent light-filled dining room opens to the screened porch. The first floor master suite offers a king bed and en suite bathroom with double sinks, large shower, and soaking tub. A powder room and laundry room complete the main floor. The second floor offers four bedrooms with private bathrooms: king bedroom with TV, queen bedroom with TV, bedroom with two bunk beds and TV, and bedroom with two twin beds. Outside, the pool deck and screened porch provide tranquil vantage points for soaking in the serene lagoon view. The home is equipped with washer, dryer, and high speed wireless internet.

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.

Kiawah Island is about 40 minutes from historic Charleston, famous for incredible shopping, galleries, antique stores, museums, the South Carolina Aquarium, horse-drawn carriage rides, historic landmarks, and sumptuous dining.

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.
This pool has an electric heater, so the pool may be heated in cooler months for $75/per day for the entire stay. It can take 24-48 hours for the pool water to reach the optimal temperature of 85-87 degrees. When the air temperature falls below 55 degrees, typically November-March, pool heaters have difficulty achieving the optimal temperature. In this case, pool heating will not be available.

RESERVATION PROCESS: Your reservation is not confirmed until you return the Akers Ellis Rental Agreement. This document will be sent to you via email within a few hours of making your reservation. You need to review and electronically fill out, sign, and submit the agreement within 24 hours. Once returned, Akers Ellis will collect payment and send you a reservation confirmation via email.

Our family gathered from many states for Thanksgiving. All agreed that this house was the best one yet. It was perfect for our large family. The house was very clean and well supplied. The bunk room was great for our four grandsons! This house suited our needs perfectly and is comfortable and cozy. We would love to stay here again.

We absolutely loved this house, location and amenities! The pool was great for the kids, the kitchen was amazing and perfect for big family dinners and games! It was super easy to get to the beach and very close to the fishing dock at Canvasback Pond. The house was very spacious and had plenty of room for our family! Would absolutely stay here again.

Great location and facility to accommodate a family vacation..6 adults and 3 grandchildren ages 21months, 9 years and 11 years old. The large bedrooms and large adjoining baths gave everyone privacy when needed and the common areas were well appointed and inviting. The large round dining table was a great plus at meal times. The pool was a big hit as it became the meeting place during the day for fun & conversation for everyone regardless of age. The short bike ride to the beach made the trip fun and easy.

The property description was great and honestly didn't do the house justice as were were pleasantly surprised. The property exceeded our expectations in everything it offered including a bathroom for every bedroom, a great pool, custom kitchen as well as being spotless and very well maintained. The Manager provided wonderful customer service and without doubt I would recommend this property to all my friends and relatives. Furthermore I will look forward to the next time I can return. WE enjoyed spending time as a family by the pool, sharing meals prepared in the lovely kitchen and enjoyed some day trips to beautiful Downtown Charleston.

Each spring, 8 tennis ladies and myself come to Kiawah for tennis clinics, food, laughter and relaxation. This house was perfect! There was plenty of space for us all to hang out together and enough beds for everyone to be comfortable. It's a beautiful home! We even got to see the gator a few times.

We had a great stay at this home! When we first arrived, music was playing, rooms were lit, and each of the bathrooms had soaps, lotions, and shampoos. All a nice touch after a long day of travel. The kitchen was well equipped. We were a group of seven adults and there was enough room to spread out and go off on our own for some quiet time. The path to the beach is very close by. The only drawback is that two of the bedrooms are really for children only. The mattresses had plastic covering so they were not very comfortable. Also, don't use Siri to find restaurants on the island! She will take you to The Sanctuary even if a restaurant is not located on that property. We rented bikes during our stay which is a great way to tour the island. It was extremely easy working with the property manager. They provided excellent customer service from beginning to end. I would definitely rent this property again!

Loved the location, quick beach access even by foot. Good for walks. House was lovely and feels huge because of the tall ceilings. View from pool area is beautiful. Akers-Ellis was very prompt with any issues (broken coffee pot, washing machine repair). Future renters should discuss the tv system with them, though. It's very complicated and there's a note not to touch it (but someone must have), but the sound wasn't working on the sports channels and it was a Bowl Game week. We did a workaround involving a phone app and an external speaker. Otherwise, it was pretty awesome!
