About Rob and Susie McCarty

We first visited Kiawah Island in 1990 and were most impressed by the island’s natural beauty and beautiful beach. Kiawah Island is a peaceful sanctuary, like no other place we have visited. We have returned there every year since then.

Rob and Susie McCarty purchased this house in 2004

Why Rob and Susie McCarty chose West Beach

Kiawah Island is a wonderful place to simply enjoy a quiet, beautiful beach with family and friends.

The property was as advertised. There was plenty of room and we had all of the amenities we needed.

  • 3 of 5

The property met most of our needs and was spacious. The location was nice and very close to the pool and the beach. The heat did not function, and we only found out after arrival. The owners did leave a nice gift basket to make up for it. We never did figure out how to get the tv in the living room to work. Personal Presence, the onsite property manager was not very helpful. If the tv is often an issue for guests, it might be wise to leave instructions. In any case, overall, we enjoyed our stay but for a couple minor inconveniences.

Poorly maintained property

  • 2 of 5

Poorly maintained. Sliding doors were difficult to move, at least one had a broken handle making it even more difficult. There were broken drawers in every bedroom. The AC and heat didn’t work the entire stay, which we were not notified of in advance. I would expect that if there is no heat or cooling we would have been offered to reschedule, but all we got was a note on the counter at check in saying the owners were aware. It was in the 40s overnight, and we had no control over the temperature in the cottage. Inside temperatures ranged from 80 to 60 degrees. It was uncomfortable to say the least, and especially difficult for the children. Had we known this was going to be an issue, we would have stayed elsewhere. Communication regarding issues was lacking - I expect more than a note written on an old envelope left on the counter as a response to a phone call. Even small things like the fact that there were supposed to be 2 keys and there was only one, and a door waiting to be installed leaning against a wall in the dining room were aggravating when coupled with the rest of the experience. This is a property that I will definitely not select in the future, and will recommend that others avoid as well.

My friend found this property for my family to celebrate the long Mother's Day weekend. It far exceeded all of our expectations. We are three generations of family and the accommodations suited everybody. This home is very conveniently located, is very well stocked and clean too. The owners are exceptional in their communications and helpful throughout. We highly recommend the property and hope to return soon!

The owners are gracious and the check in process is easy. The cottage is clean, nicely decorated and close to the beach and pool. A well stocked kitchen along with the grill make it convenient to eat at home. After vacationing in Kiawah over thirty years, this is one of my favorite rentals!

The entire process of renting this cottage was so easy. The owner gave prompt responses to our inquiry. to any questions, and sent detailed instructions on accessing the property. The cottage was just as presented on the rental listing; was clean; well stocked and very livable. Kiawah is a wonderful place to visit.

Sparrow Pond Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed staying at this beach house several times in the past. The home is nicely furnished and comes with just about everything you could imagine or need! It is nestled in the woods with just a short walk to the beautiful expansive beach. We like to stop at the swimming pool after spending the day at the ocean. There is even an outside shower if you prefer to rinse off before going in the house. I would highly recommend this cottage if you plan to stay at Kiawah!
