About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6, enclosed sun porch with great view

You will love the new cottage look since we have updated inside and out. There are now two master bedrooms. One has a king bed, the second a queen bed and each has a flat screen TV with a built in DVD player. Our third bedroom has two twin beds and a flat screen TV. The great room invites all to enjoy the entertainment center or just the beautiful view of the subtropical forest out back. We’ve provided free Broadband internet with access to a secure wireless network. The sunroom has been enclosed with floor to ceiling windows to give a panoramic view of the outdoors. It’s not unusual to see a deer or two walk by!

Our new kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances is well equipped for your use. We also have a gas grill for outdoors cooking.

The stunning master bath has a claw foot tub, glass shower enclosure, skylights and a hand painted mural of the Vanderhorst plantation. There also is a second full bathroom. Our high standards of comfort also include plush new carpeting, mounted hair dryer and washer/dryer. The house is well insulated with a new roof, doors, decking and windows, Hunter Douglass honey comb shades and Hardi Plank siding.

Come on out and enjoy the wrap around deck. We’ve even left beach chairs for you to use!! There is a covered 3-car carport to keep your vehicle out of the sun/rain.

The beach is a three minute scenic stroll. You will pass the private neighborhood pool nestled in the trees. We’ll give you the code so you have access. The West Beach village shops, restaurants, tennis and golf are only a 2 minute walk from the cottage. The nearby Fresh Fields shopping area should have just about everything you might need for a week at the beach. Kiawah Island is a wonderful place. Come stay!

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this cottage in beautiful and relaxing Kiawah Island. JoAnne and David were very helpful hosts along the way with any questions or concerns that we had before, during, and after our stay. The cottage itself is extremely comfortable and welcoming, especially with a young family such as ours. We visited with my 3 year old son and 1 year old daughter. I loved how all the bedrooms, family room, and kitchen were all accessible on one level. The outside porch and deck were very relaxing. We also liked that we were very close to the beach and a very short drive or bike ride from the Night Heron Park and nature center. Overall a great stay and we will most certainly do our best to come back!

comfortable and homelike

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this house, which was great because it was freezing outside! The sunroom is really lovely. Everything is well-taken-care-of and comfortable. We found all of the basics that we needed in the kitchen. And we loved the big bathtub and shower. Hope to come back someday!

We had a wonderful time in this very comfortable house. The owners are very accommodating. It was clean and only a short distance to the pool and onto the beach. Thank you for a wonderful vacation and great communication.

Exactly what we were looking for!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful vacation at this "lovely Sparrow pond cottage"! The cottage had everything we needed and more than we expected. The comfortable furnishings worked perfectly for six of us, and we loved the sunroom! From the nice large grill, to the supply of beach chairs and the deck with large table and chairs-- we enjoyed every part of the beach cottage! The community pool just steps away and the beach not far beyond that was wonderfully accessible for both grandparents and young child alike. The owners are delightful and helpful. It was our first trip to Kiawah island and a great family time and experience. We will definitely be back…and we will want to stay in the same cottage. We couldn't have asked for better information on where to go and what to do and see than we received from the owners. We truly felt like we were staying in their home. We loved it!!!

We enjoyed our stay so much! Only 5 min walk to beach and Kiawah Island is beautiful! Lots of opportunity for biking and running and being active, but also excellent for relaxing!

Great vacation at a great property!

  • 4 of 5

The property was beautiful and well equipped for our vacation in Kiawah. The owners were beyond helpful. This was our first beach trip with a baby and JoAnne made me feel at ease by offering information as to what to expect when we got there along with things we did not need to bring because they were at the property in order to save room in our car. It is a very short drive to the beach. You could walk easily, but we didn't attempt it with a baby considering the stuff we had in tow. My only complaint was that the bedrooms were right off the main living area, so if my child was a light sleeper or someone needed to get away from the action of the house, there really isn't a place to do that. Had a great time and would definitely stay here again!
