Oceanfront, private beach boardwalk and pool!






This beautiful oceanfront home, 43 Surfsong Rd, is within the exclusive Vanderhorst Plantation neighborhood with wonderful ocean views from all three levels. This oceanfront, Chris Rose-designed home offers 2,300 square feet of porches and decks and 5,097 square feet of interior space that is easily accessible via the home’s elevator.
The first floor welcomes you with a front covered porch and a delightful back pool and deck area that showcases the ocean views and a private boardwalk to the beach. All three of the bedrooms on this level boast great views and access to the incredible outdoors beyond; two have access to and overlook the pool area, while the third opens to the front porch. Separating the bedrooms is a family room – which could also be used as a tv/gaming room or a study – complete with a wet bar with granite countertops, a sink and an icemaker.
Using an open reverse floorplan to fully accentuate the coastal views and setting, the second floor is home to the great room. This space is professionally decorated and tastefully designed with hardwood floors, custom moldings, a granite-surround fireplace, and a wall lined in glass-paned windows and sliding doors offering access to the outdoor living spaces and beach beyond. The recently remodeled kitchen features high-end, stainless steel appliances, including a Bosch dishwasher, Thermador double ovens, and a six-burner range with griddle. Furthermore, with its hardwood floors, granite countertops and beadboard accents, this is a kitchen everyone will love spending time in. The second floor also includes yet another bedroom that opens to a balcony porch with two lovely, inviting bed swings.

Upstairs is the exquisite third floor master suite. On summer mornings, enjoy the sunlight over the ocean horizon from the private deck, and for chilly fall evenings, a stone surround fireplace warms the space and creates a glowing ambiance. Coastal accents include shining hardwood floors and a vaulted beadboard ceiling. The master bath has a large frameless glass shower and a jet tub. The third level also includes a bonus room which can be used as an office as well as an extra sleeping room for guests. It has a beautiful desk/workspace and a “hidden” queen-sized murphy bed.

As our guest, you will have access to 5 Championship Golf Courses – including The Ocean Course – the location of the 2021 PGA Championship; The Kiawah Island Resort Tennis Center - #1 ranked by Tennis Resorts Online; Free Wireless Internet Access; Local Property Management staff is on hand in case of emergencies and their friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff can assist you with any needs throughout your stay.

fabulous stay
6 girlfriends rented this beautiful home for 5 nights. It was perfect for us. The house was very well appointed and very clean with plenty of space. We were a short boardwalk stroll to the most beautiful quiet beach. The bike trails were flat and so scenic. We enjoyed fresh seafood every night. The only negative was we had hoped the pool would be heated and it wasn't but our gracious property managers compensated us for the inconvenience. we hope to be back soon!

Family Beach Week
We have stayed at this home for the last two years, and we have already booked it again for next year! The home is spacious with great outdoor areas and a semi private boardwalk. We have family from very young to almost 90 and everyone enjoys this property. We have vacationed on Kiawah for 35 years and never really had a disappointing house, but this one is our favorite!

Great stay
We enjoyed this house immensely! Quiet street. House had everything needed! Elevator was a big plus!
My only complaint was that wet towels left in the washer that had a strange odor to them.

Great House in a great location
This is a wonderful house. My family escaped to Kiawah for a week for some rest and relaxation and this home proved to be a great spot for that. plenty of space for the 6 people we had staying there, and an added bonus of an office so I could work remotely for the week. Waking up every morning to the view of the ocean from our bedroom window was a total bonus. When we weren't on the beach we hung out on the decks overlooking the water. Great indoor and outdoor space. Kitchen is fully stocked, with the exception of a Keurig.

Great Family Vacation House!!!
The house is well appointed and the floor plan is perfect for a family vacation. We had 10 people in the house and it was perfect. Pool is great and the beach is right out the back door.

While stay shortened quite a bit by mandatory evacuation, we enjoyed our 2 full days there. Communicate with ESPM very good. Home very nice with plenty of parking.

Excellent Beach House
We hosted 17 people for my 50th birthday. The house is incredible, with a short private walk to the beach. There is plenty of storage space, an elevator and bedrooms that we didn't even discover until the second night. I would highly recommend this for a golf or beach trip with friends or one or two large families.

Best summer vacation!
Wonderful time spent at 43 Surfsong. Three generations left with amazing memories.
Aug 2018

Manager Response: Thank you so much for the review, we hope you will keep coming back and making more memories here on Kiawah!

Great House
We truly enjoyed the house. The pool was an added plus. We have stayed at 6 or 7 houses on the island and this one has moved to the top of our choices.

Wonderful Multi-Generational Experience
The private boardwalk to the beach and internal elevator were especially helpful for the 90 year olds. It was clean and well appointed but would suggest that additional bath towels be made available in each bathroom. Also, had a little bit of a panic when I still hadn't received the parking permit after 5pm the day before we were supposed to leave home and check in. After my call to the emergency after-hours number, the manager called me back, was gracious, and explained that he was working late and still planning to email me the permit. Still, I would have preferred to avoid that momentary anxiety.

2017 Thanksgiving Vacation
This is a lovely home managed very professionally! The only downside is the oven which is old and didn't even have a baking/cookie tray.

I'd recommend this very highly to anyone that doesn't have to do heavy baking. None of that mattered because of the convenient access to the beach and the warm SC Fall sunshine that we were blessed with this year.

Thank you!

Utterly fantastic!
The house was SO beautiful. Definitely the best house at the beach I've stayed it. You can tell it is professionally decorated with very high end furnishings. Very short walk to the we split time between the beach and the pool. The downstairs is almost like an apartment unto itself. The kitchen has premium appliances and is super equipped. The outdoor areas have plentiful chairs, swings, dining areas. We had 6 adults and 2 children, and this was a perfect place for us. I would highly recommend it for any type group looking for a luxury place to relax at Kiawah!

Family Reunion
We enjoyed our stay at the house. It was large enough to accommodate our group and was in the perfect location. The beach proximity and access was a bonus. We felt the house could use a little updating/maintenance, especially in the kitchen and pool area.

Manager Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the house and the beach access! Thank you so much for bringing some maintenance items to our attention, they have all been taken care of and are good to go, I hope you will consider returning to the home for your next Kiawah trip!

Birthday Weekend on Kiawah
The home is perfectly located on Kiawah with easy beach access and wonderful views of the water. The perfect place for a family get together. We would come back in a heartbeat.

Perfect Kiawah Vacation Home
Our family has visited Kiawah many times in the past 17 years and this was my favorite of the homes we've rented. There were 11 of us, ranging in age from 18-65. I loved the layout, the lush grounds, the beach access, the porches, the bed swings, the pool and surrounding deck. Kitchen was great. AC was great. It is conveniently located midway East on the island. We saw great wildlife, including a family of bobcats. Highly recommend this for groups with older children. Both Hilary and Carol of ESPM were very helpful.

Klein Anniversary Blowout
Overall- a 10. Issues with controlling the A/C on the 3 levels was an issue. We also assumed that an Ocean Home would have ample beach chairs. The only other issue was not having fitted sheets for the beds. Every day, there were problems remaking each bed.

We would again rent from yourCompany & this house
Apr 2017

Manager Response: Thank you for your suggestions! There is a different a/c unit and thermostat for each of the three levels, it is a very large home and with guests opening and closing doors/windows and going out to the multiple decks, etc it can take a bit longer to reach cooler temps. I will speak with the housekeeping company about your fitted sheet suggestion. Please let us know next time you'd like to come down, we'd love to have you return!

Great house, lovely interior and great location.
Everything was easy and perfect.

I'm so glad that you enjoyed the home and it worked well for your holiday, thank you so much for your kind review! Definitely let us know next time you are planning a trip to Kiawah, we'd love to have you return!

Wonderful Family Vacation
This was our first time coming to Kiawah with both married kids and grandchildren. Our kids have fond memories of Kiawah vacations when they were young and wanted to continue the tradition. This lovely home provided the perfect place to do that. It was beautiful, comfortable, clean and accommodated our needs down to the hanging swing chairs that provided our daughter a wonderful spot to feed the baby. Perfect house, perfect location. None of us wanted to leave and that says it all.

Ideal Home for our Vacation
43 Surfsong was a perfect retreat for our two families to share a vacation. The amenities within are exceptional - well-stocked, high-end, everything you could want. The layout of the home works great for a big group and the location can't be beat. We hope to return again!

Manager Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the house and it worked well for the families to share! It is a great layout for multiple families to share and still have plenty of room to spread out! The owners are great about keeping the home stocked and up to date, I do hope you'll let us know next time you want to return!

BEST family vacation E V E R !!!!!!
First week in June took our kids, their spouses and our grandkids to 43 Surfsong and we all had an incredible time. The house was perfect, the pool was perfect, the proximity to the stores, ocean, Charlestown, etc... tea perfect too. We've been doing this (big family vacation) every two years, for a while now, and this place is the first one we've considered as a repeat location. We were blessed with GREAT weather (out of the 7 days we were there, only 1 day with any rain-unreal) able to watch , as a family, our Cleveland Cavaliers play and WIN the NBA Finals capping off a vacation THIS FAMILY WILL NEVER FORGET! We thank GOD for blessing our family as he has and keeping us all safe during the trip. I recommend ESPM Vacation Rentals wholeheartedly.
