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 KiawahCottageRental and we have have set it up so we can share it with you. We have been successfully renting out our place for many years on VRBO, HomeAway and our own website. 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 clearly hear the surf from the cottage.
Note: We have a security cam above the lock box focused on the parking lot and entry staircase.

About Paul Petkanas
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.
Paul Petkanas purchased this Cottage in 1992
Why Paul Petkanas chose West Beach
There is something about Kiawah... When you go there you just don't want to leave and, though eventually you must, 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 as a KiawahCottageRental helps financially and has been incredibly emotionally rewarding as well. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Excellent location and relaxation
We really didn't know what to expect, as we have never stayed at this house before . But, when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised at how close we were to the beach (just steps away).
The house was clean, well-maintained, roomy, and had everything we needed. We took our dogs as we're able to walk them on the beach and on shopping outings.
It rained all day one day and there were plenty of movies, games, books to deter our boredom.
Our host/management responded quickly to questions and was extremely helpful.
We look forward to another trip in near future
Nice Get Away!
We stayed for an extended weekend here and loved it! The owner was very responsive throughout the process and very polite to work with! It was within a 2 minute walk to the beach and you could hear it from the porch! The screen porch was nice and the house was plenty big for our party of 4! Our dog loved it too and enjoyed longs walks down the beach as well as touring the island! It is about a 10 minute walk or less to the nature center! The only negative thing was all the rain we had, which caused quite a few puddles around the outside of the house, but it was A LOT of rain!
We hope to stay here again in the future!
Claen, neat and had everything we needed. An amazing beach 5 minutes away.
The house was exactly as described. Everything we needed was there, clean and ready to go. You can access a pristine beach in 5 minutes and there were 5 golf courses all on the Island. There are so many things to do but for sure rent bicycles they will deliver them to your home. We mostly ate in but there are so many choices that you will not be bored.
Wonderful Weekend at Kiawah Cottage
This is a basic beach cottage in one of Kiawah's oldest neighborhoods. That is not a criticism! It was exactly what we were looking for! When we are in the mood for fancy, we go down to The Sanctuary for a drink or the Ocean Course for a meal. But for a GREAT location -- quiet, beautiful, neighborhood just a stone's throw from the beach and close to other Kiawah sites we enjoy (Freshfields, Night Heron Park, etc.)-- this cottage is ideal! The house was clean and well supplied with all basic needs. The owner was great to work with. We will rent from him again.
Fantastic Kiawah Cottage: Great Location, Clean and Cozy!
Our stay at the Kiawah Cottage was fantastic! Paul was a great host and, pre-arrival, gave us very specific instructions on how to check in, what to do/eat in Kiawah, etc. Beach access is a couple of steps from your front door. Also, top notch restaurants at the Santuary and Freshfield Village are within a few minutes drive. The kitchen was stocked with basic needs (plates, cups, silverware, etc). Paul allowing pets to join was just icing on the cake. Overall the stay couldn't have been better and we will be returning!!
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...:(
