The Bungalows at Kiawah River Now Available for Rental

Kiawah River recently unveiled its riverfront Bungalows, nestled along a quiet creek off the Kiawah River. The 11 one-bedroom detached cabins average 800 square feet and are ideal for a carefree romantic weekend getaway or a jumping off point for fishing adventures. 

The expansive selection of residential offerings at Kiawah River caters to a wide variety of lifestyles and preferences. This limited collection of turn-key cabins is the latest addition to Kiawah River’s diverse options of waterfront, wooded and village homes and homesites. 

The Bungalows are intimate retreats now available for rental through Sewee Properties and are a great way to try out all that Kiawah River has to offer before buying: the riverside Spring House, miles of trails winding through forests and along the waterfront and Kiawah River Farm, featuring The Goatery’s new dairy.  

Designed by Julia Starr Sanford of Starr Sanford Design, whose architectural vision influenced Alys Beach in the Florida Panhandle and communities such as Mahogany Bay Village in Belize and Las Catalinas in Puerto Rico, the fully furnished Bungalows are located next to the Spring House. 

Inspired by traditional Lowcountry seaside dwellings, Sanford’s architectural details maximize outdoor living along Kiawah River’s 20 miles of waterfront with screened porches, divided-light windows and doors that welcome natural light and cooling cross ventilation. 

With interior furnishings by Amanda Lindroth, the homes embrace the cozy cabin scale with natural materials, textured finishes and timeless furniture including cerused oak flooring, soapstone countertops, custom cabinetry with polished nickel features, a daybed and a dining room table. 

The Bungalows are considered a waterman’s paradise, offering water access with several launch points for fishing and exploring the pristine Kiawah River and inland waterways.  Kiawah River is also considered a modern-day agrihood, as just around the bend is a  100-acre working farm that is home to a pasture-raised cattle company, a goat dairy, actively maintained beehives and a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program for residents and visitors. 

From completely custom home designs to turnkey floorplans, Kiawah River offers a diverse variety of homes starting at $900,000 and homesites starting at $200,000. The community has been carefully planned to embrace outdoor living, with only half of the property’s 2,000 acres developed, and the remaining 1,000 acres to remain open green space for the community.
