A private deep-water dock with kayak offers water access for fishing, boating, or charter pickups. Just steps away is Kiawah’s famous 10-mile beach, accessed on a boardwalk past the internationally acclaimed Ocean Course.

Another great Kiawah week
A very good house in a quiet neighborhood. Perfect for relaxing, and enjoying Kiawah, its wildlife, its scenery, and its unique quality.

Kiawah reunion
I gathered my family together, 12 of us total. Age range 11-76. My goal was for my kids and 7 grandchildren to be in proximity and have fun interacting in a comfortable environment. They did, and had lots of fun.

Another great Kiawah vacation
We have been coming to Kiawah for 35 years now, but this is the first time we used ESPM Rentals, and we were very pleased with their service, both before, and during our stay. The house was spectacular, very comfortable, and well designed. I have always preferred the views of the marsh to ocean views, as the marsh changes throughout the day, and 70 Otter Island has some superb marsh views. The property was clean and well maintained, and was well sited for walks to the beach, bike rides to the Ocean Course, and the general Kiawah experience. The beds were comfortable, the bedrooms well laid out, and the living area and kitchen were in a work very livable. The only caveat would be that older guests may want to ask if they could use the elevator, as the house is on three floors, with steep staircases. The dock on Bass Creek was an added bonus, as was the plunge pool. We can’t wait to return.

Early spring getaway
The house was great. The weather was perfect. We had a few questions when we arrived and they were answered immediately through the rental company.

Dream Home
The house and location are perfectly suited for an active Kiawah vacation. A short bike ride to the beach (on the quietest portion of the island, and through the beautiful Ocean Course), and situated on idyllic Bass Creek (for fishing, crabbing, and kayaking). Perfect.

PGA week at 70 Otter Island
Our family vacation stay at 70 Otter Island for PGA was very enjoyable. We have been visiting Kiawah for about 40 years and have stayed about everywhere on the island.

70 Otter Island
Beautiful views out the back of the house.
A dock to the river for fishing, sunrises and sunsets, or just watching wildlife and chilling.
3rd floor Master Suite

Very small pool.
No outdoor living area.

This is a very nice home. We are a little spoiled by homes that have had nice outdoor living areas for grilling.

This is our second stay with ESPM and they do a great job!!

VayK beach gear also does a great job and provides nice equipment.

Unbelievable Home
This house is simply amazing. It is located in a quiet area through the second gate and is beautiful. We were so fortunate to stay here and spent many nights sitting in the pool taking in the marsh. The dock was awesome as well and the owner provided fishing gear, crab pots, and kayaks to use. Would highly recommend this house.
