Girl on Vacation

So it's been a bit since my last post because I was in Kiawah Island, SC
(I know rough life I have) 

I've never been to South Carolina, and honestly had to Google map Kiawah to see the closest airport.


One of my best college friends, Foster, was getting married.  
So pretty...

Her real name is Jen, but I nicknamed her Foster in college because I thought she looked just like Jodie Foster.  Can you see the resemblance?

I thought so too, hence the nickname.

Now this little chickadee and her super cool husband did what I have been telling brides-to-be to do for YEARS, rent a house somewhere wonderful for a week and invite your closest friend and family.  You get a vacation, you get an extended party, and sure you'll spend the same money (but you could save) and either way you get a week vaca not just a 1 day celebration.  S-M-A-R-T

The whole weekend was so fun.

The house they rented was Capital A - Awesome.  It was remodeled just a few years ago as one of the first LEED-Certified remodels on Kiawah (LEED is designer code for "environmentally conscience").  The architect and designer turned an old Georgian traditional home into a relaxed coastal cottage beach retreat.

Now don't be fooled by the term "cottage".  It's about 7,500 sq. ft., 8 bedrooms and 9 baths.  Of course I  usually critique every home I'm in (it an instinctual thing) but, this house was perfect.  (Maybe the cool ocean breeze or the chili-guava margarita's influenced my decision, but hey I guess I can be bought)

You can decide for yourself.

Do you like?  
Well you could have bought it for a cool $10 million, but someone beat you too it and it is also now off the rental market, but maybe there's another property on Kiawah for you (wink, wink).

The house was inviting and casual, yet it had all the amenities needed to entertain (i.e. large deck, 2 dishwasher, etc.).  Just what every beach house should be.  

Ahh! til next time Kiawah.
