                My family and I spent a week on Kiawah Island and LOVED every minute of it! It was a work-vacation for me, but while I was away...the boys did play! Whether it was baseball on the beach, biking on the trails, or boogie-boarding the waves…a great time was had by all. With an extremely clean, fully-furnished vacation home like Sparrow Pond Cottage to come home to after a day full of play (or work), my family was able to enjoy a relaxing Spring Break in the quiet, moss-filled scenery while listening to the waves crashing to shore in the distance. We highly recommend this vacation home!

                This cottage was everything we wanted and more. The beach access was great as was the bike trails . We really enjoyed the food at Reds ice house and Chezs seafood a few miles out of town. This is a great place to stay and visit . We are already planning our next trip back to kiawah and sparrow pond .

                I was surprised to find that the 3 bedroom cottage was so small. The master bed barely fit into the room and the living room area cramped. There were 4 of us and we felt like we were "on top of one another". The photos made the property look much larger. There is only one tiny bathroom for the persons who would be staying in the other 2 bedrooms, which could be up to 4. Not enough space for 2 persons' towels and personal items, couldn't see 4 trying to use this space. The living room furniture is not very inviting. The sofa is fine but there are only two side chairs and they are upholstered but not comfortable for an evening of watching t.v. There is a 32" flat screen in the living room which is too small and poorly placed. There is a 19" t.v. in the master and one bedroom. The 3rd bedroom does not have t.v. As mentioned in the property description, it is close to the ocean but quite a long walk if you are taking many beach items. There is an area at the end of the road to park cars and bikes but it would accomodate only 10 cars at the max. The community is quiet and the pool easy to get to but is just the pool- no diving or slides. There were nice amenities such as a screened-in porch with a comfortable patio set and a wonderful outside shower next to the front door. If you preferred to shower outside, this would relieve the congestion in the one bathroom. The kitchen is well stocked and there are trash bags,dishwashing supplies for both sink and dishwasher. There was detergent in the laundry room and it was a nice size. The total cottage was clean. There is a large gas grill on a large deck. The property manager was very helpful and nice and made herself available for any problems. Overall, we felt that for the rental price we were expecting a much larger living area. This property is suited to 2 adults and children at least age 12. There are steps up to the cottage so if mobility is a problem this would not be a good choice. We like the quietness and less traffic of Kiawah. The beach is beautiful. There are great restaurants and the Freshfield Market and village is conveniently located and I thought the Market's prices were reasonable. Bohickets Marina is a beautiful place to look out over the marshes and creeks. The Red Ice House, located in the marina complex has great food. We will be back to stay at Kiawah.

                This is our second visit to Kiawah and this cottage, and both times, we had a great experience! We previously stayed on Seabrook, and definitely prefer Kiawah. We love the huge beach with access so close to the cottage, and having a pool available with the cottage(without having a separate amenity pass). Seabrook’s beach is not nearly as large or accessible…we always had to drive and park at the beach club to go to the beach or pool. We have rented bikes from the Island Bike & Surf Shop and have been very satisfied. The bikes are at the cottage when you arrive and picked up the day you leave. Really nice to have bikes/trailers/seats available for the kids at every age! Kiawah bike trails are great and a family favorite activity! The wildlife is one of our favorite parts…deer, alligators, egrets, etc, are frequently seen. The cottage is very clean and comfortable for us, our 3 & 5 year olds, and the grandparents (for a few days). The beds are comfortable and since our last visit in September, new paint, rugs, dining table, and coded lock have been added, making for an even nicer stay. We love to eat on the screened in porch and the beach and pool are a 1 minute bike ride away. Red’s Ice House is our favorite place to eat…can’t beat the all-you-can-eat crab legs on Mondays! We also enjoyed Cypress Gardens. We took a guided boat ride on the swamp, enjoyed the butterfly house, and saw a mama and baby alligators. One of the most important advantages of this cottage is the property manager, Susie. From the time you inquire about the cottage until after you’ve stayed there, she is so friendly and helpful! Any questions, requests, or problems are dealt with immediately. Anytime we sent her a text, email, or called her, we always received a prompt response no matter what day or time it was. To us, that made a huge difference! We’ve stayed at several properties where the owners are not accessible or friendly, and you feel as if you can’t contact them without bothering them. Susie is the exact opposite. She wants to make sure you have a great time and is very willing to offer suggestions and answer questions about the area, activities, etc. She will spoil you so much that you will never want to stay anywhere else…thanks again! We’ll definitely return again!

                We loved everything about the island, and the home we stayed in. Peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable. Every thing we needed was provided. listing description was accurate. Photos were exactly to how house was. Property was super clean. I would HIGHLY recommend family and friends to stay. Near by activities on the island were fun for the kids. Spent time in Charleston. We LOVED the bike rentals and took lots of rides on the paths and on the beach. The only misunderstanding is the pools. I think the information given needs to be even more explicit about that the "community Pool". That our pool is small and simple and the bigger pools with slides are NOT included. Even though it was mentioned, I think it needs to be really more specific. Wish there was a way that families could pay to go to the other pools. We would not have minded paying extra. We were kind of rudely told those pools were only for home owners of the island and the resort.

                Manager response: Tara and John - I am glad you had such a great time on Kiawah and at this cottage. I also wish there was a way we could get you access to the Resort pools and am sorry the Resort employees were rude. Thanks for the feedback. Hopefully your review will help future guests understand the differences between the community pool that this cottage has access to and the Resort pools. Susie

                My family of 5 found the villa to be very charming and extremely functional. It was well maintained and comfortable and perfect for our beach vacation. It had the space we needed for 3 young children (ages 5, 5 and 1 1/2) and offered an outdoor shower which was perfect for after the beach, a hose for rinsing sand toys, washer/dryer for washing clothes and a delightful sunroom for enjoying all our meals. Additionally, Susie the property manager was fabulous. She was always available, very responsive and handled matters appropriately. Thank you!

                We just returned from our second Kiawah vacation. This was our second Sparrow Pond cottage to rent, and it was great! The cottage was very clean, and the beds were very comfortable. This cottage was more updated and cleaner than the first one we stayed at. It is quite apparent the owners and caretakers care about the upkeep of this property. We enjoyed eating dinner on the screened in porch and walking to the beach. The property manager was extremely helpful, and the checking in/checking out was much easier this time around. I would definitely recommend this property for a family of 6 and under, and I would definitely stay here again!

                We spent Chrstmas week with our family--4 adults and 3 children (6 and under)--here, thoroughly enjoying every moment. The updated and open living plan was perfect for our 3 generation group, with it's separate master bedroom and bathroom for Granada and grandma. The kitchen was surprisingly fully equipped, allowing for creative meal prep. The Newton Farms market at Fresh Fields was a great resource and inspiration for our group of foodies. The mild and sunny late December weather was perfect for biking on the beach and along the many miles of biking paths on Kiawah. New Years Eve on Kiawah was one of our best ever.

                We were at Sparrow Pond from May 26th through June 2nd and hated to leave. Our last minute decision to come to Kiawah Island and rent this cottage turned out to be a great experience. The wonderful professional and personal service from Susie made this a pleasant experience. The cottage in itself was everything we were looking for, secluded but not isolated, close to the beach with wonderful shaded pathways for walking in the community. The wonderful grill provided us with great meals on the screened in porch where we relaxed every morning and evening. We will always remember Sparrow Pond Cottage and our wedding on the beach.
