Property description


My family started going to Kiawah Island in 1990. We picked up a small condo and for the next couple of years every time we went down we scouted the listings until we were lucky enough to find this cottage. Its located in a very quiet and secluded neighborhood called Oceanwoods and it is very close to the beach!

We love having our cottage and we have have set it up so we can share it with you. By renting directly from the owners you can save a few dollars vs. using the rental companies, and experience one of the best locations on Kiawah Island!

Oceanwoods is a very popular Kiawah Island neighborhood for families who love a cottage near the beach. Secluded, at the end of Eugenia Avenue, it is close enough to walk to Night Heron Park or bike to other island amenities. The main attraction is the close proximity to an uncrowded part of the beach. Our cottage, 468 Oceanwoods, is a very short walk to the beach. Often you can hear the surf from the cottage.

Note: We have a security cam above the lock box focused on the parking lot and entry staircase.

Kiawah has world class golf courses and a top rated tennis resort! The Ocean Course on Kiawah has hosted the Ryder Cup, the Sr. PGA and several other championship matches. The PGA Championship was held there in 2012! Kiawah has approximately 30 miles of leisure trails (walking, biking, etc.. Excellent place for birding and wildlife watching. The main attraction is the 10 mile long beautiful, crescent shaped beach. The only bad thing about Kiawah is the day you have to leave...:(


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: I live in NY and am semi-retired. I go to Kiawah twice a year. Eventually I hope to retire there part time and travel.

Why the Owner Chose West Beach (Kiawah Island, SC, USA):
There is something about Kiawah... When you go there you just don't want to leave and the memories last forever. We were fortunate to find our dream vacation cottage near the beach many years ago. Then we had to figure out how to make it work. Sharing it with other families through renting helps financially and has also been emotionally rewarding as well. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You want to relax with family and friends? This is the place!
