Welcome to 77 Forestay, your home away from home on Kiawah Island in a prime wooded setting just across the street from the beach!! This gorgeous 4,436 sq ft vacation home boasts 6 large bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a private pool and everything you need to make your vacation a breeze. If you're searching for houses for rent on Kiawah for a large family or several couples, 77 Forestay is perfect!

Enter to the open living room with floor to ceiling windows offering lots of natural light. Just off of the gourmet kitchen and spacious downstairs living area, you will find two bedrooms that share a jack and jill bath. One bedroom offers 2 full beds with updated flat screen TV & DVD player, while the other affords a queen bed with sitting area.

Opposite the living room, to the right of entry you will find one of two master bedrooms complete with king bed, flat screen TV and extra-large walk in shower with separate soaking tub. Past the elevator and upstairs to the left is the second master bedroom with king bed, ensuite bath and updated TV with sitting area. A twin bedroom with full bath is located to the right of the upstairs master.

A very comfortable second living area/media room, great for relaxing after a long day at the beach, is opposite the bedrooms, to the right of the stairs. From this room, take another flight of stairs to the very private 6th bedroom loft offering a queen bed and a 1/4 bath with sink and mirror. Please know that a guest who uses this room will need to utilize the 1/2 hallway bath or full bathroom on the second floor. A second powder room is located off the kitchen and laundry area downstairs. A refreshing, crystal blue pool and screened in porch with gas fireplace make this the perfect place to unwind and spend your vacation.

Our experience at 77 Forestay
This vacation rental exceeded our expectations. The location was perfectly situated in proximity to the beach and bike paths. It was clean and very well-maintained. The house was much larger than we needed however the layout made it seem cozy. I was able to ride a bike to play tennis and we were easy walking distance to the beach. I would highly recommend this property. We tried to rent it for our summer vacation but it was already booked! We will definitely seek it out again.

Family Reunion at 77 Forestay
The house and property were as described with the pool and outdoor patio. Was a real hit with the children. Beach was also very clean with easy access and very private.. The dishwasher had 4 missing wheels on the lower rack which made it very difficult to move in and out for loading. The toilet in the upstairs twin bedroom would not stop running unless the handle was pushed all the way down hard. Otherwise everything was in good shape. We enjoyed out stay on Forestay!

A great near beachfront home
This was a well furnished and maintained home. Although we did not use all the bedrooms, they all looked clean and comfortable. The walk to the beach was, at the most, three minutes, and the house was convenient to all of Kiawah’s many bike paths. It might be a good idea to have a place to store the cushions on the seats by the pool, as they appeared to be rather damp and worn. The kitchen and dining area were a delight, and the second floor sitting room is an ideal escape for those who want to combine offsite work along with their vacation.

Good house, great location
We had a great stay at 77 Forestay. It had plenty of space for our two families. The best feature is that while it is not directly on the beach, there is a public access literally 20 steps from the property so you can get from the house to the beach in 2 minutes. We got the pool heated and the kids loved that as well. Overall, a really comfortable house.

Perfect extended family vacation spot!
We have rented from Pam Harrington on several occasions so i knew the property management team was excellent, and, even through the Covid restrictions and new safety measures, they were still pleasant and as accommodating as possible! The home itself is lively and very well appointed. The kitchen has just about everything you could ask for in a vacation rental. We traveled with elderly parents and the elevator was perfect for them! The house is a very easy, short walk from the beach. Our granddaughters enjoyed the pool every evening while we prepared dinner. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect beach rental

Wonderful beachside vacation
We had our three daughters and their families for a great Kiawah week. The house is great. A 2 minute walk to the beach. Generally well stocked. The pool was perfect for 5 grandkids. If I was to look for negatives the elevator did not work, we saw a few bugs and the third floor bedroom gets too warm. So we didn’t know we had an elevator but it would have been nice to slog a couple of heavy suitcases and groceries. Bugs didn’t really bother us.

Return to 77 Forestay
This is the fourth year that we have rented this house and we just love it. The house is lovely, but very family friendly. The bedrooms
fit our family perfectly with wonderful gathering spaces, but privacy and quiet at bedtime. And everyone loves the pool!
The house is clean and well cared for. Pam
Harrington provided timely service and updates
for a malfunctioning elevator. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone.
Forgot to mention the short walk to the beach
which is very quiet at that end of Vanderhorst.
Definitely will return next year.

Reunion Retreat
Five couples spent a week at this rental in mid-October. The house was perfect for a reunion of friends. For the most part everything was in excellent condition. It is difficult to find a large rental on the island that has an ideal bed configuration for couples in all the bedrooms. This property was a good compromise in that regard. We were located about a 3 minute walk to the beach, so very convenient for that. We enjoyed the cozy living room on the second floor. The bedroom on the third floor, while very large, has no bathroom. This is somewhat inconvenient. The house has an elevator, which was most useful for transporting luggage. There is a lovely, large pool and outdoor entertaining area at this property.

We had a very nice time at Kiawah and this house. Nicely appointed. Comfortable. The pool was perfect for our 5 month old grand-daughter. Would love to have had a working light in the pool also, would be nice if light switches had been marked for what they worked.

Great week in Kiawah
This is the second year we've stayed in this house (16th year coming to Kiawah!) and we've booked it again for next year. It's a beautiful house with everything you could need, but the best part for us is the proximity to the beach. It's right around the corner from the beach access so it's very easy to get to and from the beach. We hope to continue coming here with extended family for years to come!

Another Fantastic Week at Kiawah
This is the second year we have rented this property, and we were once again completely
satisfied. The property was very clean and well
maintained. We had just a short walk to the beach, and the pool was a delightful option at
any time. The layout of the house provided a
large gathering space for meals and conversation, but also bedroom/bath groupings
that allowed privacy and convenience for the different families within our party. The post
dinner walks on the beach offered breath taking
views in the evening. Everyone declared this their favorite time of day at Kiawah. We hope
to return to this wonderful home again next summer and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Please see review of 87 Jackstay just submitted. The same views apply to 77 Forestay. Both houses are very conducive to our families. Worked great and we enjoyed their closeness to each other as well as to the Beach. Another successful stay in Kiawah thru P. Harrington!!

Best Kiawah vacation ever
PHE made our vacation a smooth and wonderful experience. Our property was in a great location and the house was spotless. It was home away from home for a week. Everything you can possibly need was provided. We especially enjoyed the pool! Having our groceries already delivered and put away was great! The staff at PHE was very helpful and pleasant when I called with questions. I definitely will contact them for future stays in Kiawah!

77 Forestay Court 8/13-20
Overall it was very positive. I have rented through Pam Harrington before and its always been good.

The house is in very good condition. We had had just one issue with a propane tank on the grill being empty on check in day. We called and within an hour the servicemen from the company were out replacing the grill so we could cook our dinner. Couldn't have asked for more. The app was helpful as a reference source to many of our questions about the rental. And my few interactions with the personnel in the rental office were all very pleasant. Would definitely rent through Pam Harrington again.

Love Kiawah and 77 Forestay
This was a beautiful home right next to the boardwalk leading to the beach. Our family has been going to Kiawah every summer for almost 20 years and this house was perfection! It was beautifully decorated, had a fully equipped kitchen and large grill outside which we used often, comfortable beds - I could go on and on! We will definitely book this home again!

Property was perfect for our extended family of

was very clean and well maintained. We love the beach but the pool was a special treat at the end of the day. A small problem with the
temp in the pool was handled in a timely manner. We have been visiting Kiawah for 30 years and this was the best house every. We
would definitely recommend this house and PHE to friends or relatives.

Framily Gathering (Family and Friends)
Propane was empty upon our arrival. It was taken care of immediately so we could grill that evening. The only drawbacks we found were the smallish screened in porch and the lack of an icemaker, We will definitely consider renting this property or another from Pam Harrington when we are in Kiawah next.

A gem!
This house was wonderful! Beautifully decorated, high end appliances & fixtures, large pool, short walk to beach, easy access to bike paths, etc! The only drawback is there are 2-3 steps down to the bedrooms on the main level & into the (wonderful) loft upstairs. This could be a hazard for elderly or small children. Overall, our favorite rental to date!

The trip to Kiawah could not have gone better. From the first interaction with Kay and Courtney #2 from Pam Harrington Exclusives, to the house at 77Forestay, to three days of golf and dining at one of the finest destinations in the country, we couldn't have asked for more. And, by the way, the weather was perfect as well. Thank you Kay and Courtney for everything and we hope to do it again in the future.

Loved everything about the house and renting again next year! Only issue was that palmetto bugs could easily enter the house at night underneath the door to the pool. We fixed this by putting a throw rug up tight to the seal, however it seems like the seal should be fixed professionally.

We needed two houses close together w/beach access for 25 family members and the Pam Harrington group came up with exactly what we felt we wanted. The choice turned out to be,
above our expectations. Both houses were well
suited to our needs. The service from the Pam
Harrington group was excellent and prompt. We
would strongly recommend their services. The elevator was a big asset.
