  • Great casual Kiawah experience

    "The Sparrow Pond Cottage was a fabulous choice for our family of 6. It is nicely appointed and not "over furnished" like many similar units. We have stayed in Kiawah several times and overall, this Sparrow Pond was the best of many worlds for us. It was very close to the beach and General Store, and close enough to the entrance of the island that you could run to Harris Teeter in minutes. The owners were very accommodating with our dates and needs. If you're looking for a family friendly Kiawah cottage, this is a great choice."

  • Fall relaxing

    "We stayed at this condo in november. We were looking for a relaxing, low stress, quiet getaway. We found just that. This property is convenient to some of the areas most popular restaurants and attractions in the south. This was the cleanest place that we have every stayed at for a vacation. The beach access was perfect and it was a great spot to go for walks and pick up seashells. The location is not surrounded by high rise buildings and has a great view of sunsets. The owner was extremely nice and helpful and very east to get in touch with. This property is perfect for any season in the year. We cant wait to visit again."

  • Peaceful Retreat

    "A quiet retreat on a beautiful lake, yet close to great restaurants, beautiful beaches and a great town to explore. A wonderful wood stove will keep you cozy and warm after a day's exploration on the lake in the provided watercraft or you can cook up a storm in the beautifully-equipped kitchen. The house is also fully stocked with movies, puzzles, games and toys. Perfect place for a get-away. Loved it!"

  • Great Place

    "My family and I stayed here for 5 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very suitable and comfy for us. We enjoyed being down the end of Main St, quiet but close enough to venture down to the restaurants, shops and bars of Frisco. The bus stop out the front was very handy. We loved the view from the balcony and sat out there taking it in many times! The Hot tub in the club room came in very handy after long ski days and the undercover parking was very helpful. We would recommend this place to anyone!"
