Description

Enjoy the quintessential Kiawah Island experience in this magnificent 6,000 square foot home with breathtaking views of the Kiawah River and tidal marshes from every room. Located at the easterly tip of exclusive Rhett’s Bluff, and surrounded by water on three sides, this 6 bedroom/6.5 bath retreat offers privacy, security and exclusivity unique even to Kiawah. Features that allow guests the optimum connection with the home’s natural surroundings include an outdoor swimming pool, deck and spa, a large screen porch with additional dining accommodations, and a dock.

The property, named “Moon River” by its owners for the spectacular moonlit evening views over the river and marshes, features an open and spacious floor plan with high ceilings, elevator access at every level, a family room, sitting room and library, and a beautifully appointed kitchen with granite countertops, built-in refrigeration, ice machine, two dishwashers, a six-burner professional stove and separate butler’s pantry. Every bedroom features a private bath and flat screen television. The large master bedroom on the second floor boasts an expansive balcony and panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows. Due to the complete privacy of the setting, the master bedroom windows remain untouched by a shade or curtain. The third floor king bedroom suite includes a separate sauna off the full bathroom.

This serene home is perfect for large families on vacation, adult get-togethers, or executive golf or strategic retreats, and offers close proximity to all Kiawah amenities, as well as ample parking in and out of the garage. Beach access is a short bicycle ride to the path adjacent to the Sanctuary Hotel. Entertain your family, friends and colleagues in a truly world class setting.

The home is equipped with washer, dryer, and high-speed wireless internet.

This pool has a gas heater, so the pool and spa may be heated in cooler months for $100/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.

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 $400. You may use your credit for bicycles, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach carts, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and more – the choice is yours!

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.

This home was gorgeous with its sweeping views of the marsh! We loved the pool and deck overlooking the marsh and the large screened porch with rocking chairs. The kitchen was very well-equipped and beautiful and our family enjoyed eating dinner at the large dining table! The second refrigerator came in handy too. There was plenty of space for our family of 12 to spread out. The home is beautifully decorated and very comfortable!! Akers Ellis was also great to work with, making everything very easy and streamlined. Great experience!

If you are searching for a home with breathtaking views, look no further. I will take this river/marsh view over the ocean any day. Both day and night- it was gorgeous! The pool and spa were added bonuses. It was a little chilly during our stay so we paid to heat them both. Money well spent. Our kids really enjoyed splashing around with each other. This home really was the perfect place to bring people from 4 different states under 1 roof to celebrate the holiday season. We cannot wai to come back. Thank you Akers Ellis for making this a trip we will not forget!

We cannot say enough nice things about this home. The location is private yet close to amenities the island offers. Inside was extremely clean and all bedding/furnishings were comfortable. The kitchen was nicely stocked with everything we needed to cook a 5-star meal. Our group's ages ranged from 6-65 and every single person fell in love with the home. You cannot beat the view and the dock is so fun to walk out on- we got some great family pictures from that spot.

We visit Kiawah Island several times a year and love staying with this rental company. When we saw this new vacation rental pop up on the website, we booked it almost immediately. It is fabulous! Absolutely one of the nicest places we have stayed on Kiawah. It will definitely be a family favorite for years to come.

Perfect location

Overall wonderful location in a large house with lots of amenities. The only disappointments were the grill and oven were not good quality given the quality of the house. The spa did not work at all though we did not feel the need to pay for it to be heated. The other oddity was there were multiple entrance doors that could not be locked so there was a sense of insecurity with little kids in the house.

Best Place to Stay on Kiawah

We very much appreciated this quiet/peaceful/secluded home. Easy walk or short drive to the Sanctuary, where we accessed the beach. Pool was used by the kids and all, every night after dinner. We enjoyed the entire house and found all that's necessary to live comfortably. House is perfect for large family gathering.

Peaceful, private, paradise!

Such a beautiful home in a perfect, private location! Between the pool, hot tub, dock, wonderful porches and decks....we never wanted to leave! We enjoyed fishing and crabbing from the dock...we even saw dolphins and sharks! The home was immaculately decorated in an elegant low country style. The kitchen had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this vacation home and hope we get a chance to go back!

Had another great stay on Kiawah. Celebrated my birthday with my kids and grandkids. Weather was beautiful. The location of the house is unbelievable, with water on 2 sides. Loved the view from the 2nd floor master bedroom. My wife says that this was out best trip ever to Kiawah.

7 Rhetts Bluff

We had a wonderful vacation experience at 7 Rhetts Bluff. Best location on Kiawah and a wonderful home! We could see the sunrise and set from the master bedroom balcony. Great pool and spot on the river. We kayaked, fished and crabbed from the dock. Akers was very responsive and great to work with as well. We will be back!

This home is beautiful and the perfect location for a large family vacation. We loved the sweeping marsh views, the private pool and the large screened porch. The kitchen was well-equipped and gorgeous - we loved have the second fridge, second dishwasher and ice maker too. The layout of the house was wonderful - plenty of space for our large group. The huge dining table made for fun family dinners. The elevator was perfect for my 99yo grandmother. We would love to stay here again! Akers Ellis was very professional and made the whole process super easy!
