About Monique Betzen

My husband and I have three sons, two daughter-in-laws, and a grandson born in August. We have been going to Kiawah for over 20 years and absolutely love the place. Our family enjoys the many bike trails on the Island as well as going to the Resort Pool at Night Heron Park. The beach is a short walk from the Cottage. We know you will enjoy it and welcome you to stay at our Cottage, which we have made comfortable for our visitors.

Monique Betzen purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Monique Betzen chose Charleston Area

Kiawah is a secure family friendly island with activities for all ages. We spend lots of time on the beach, love to ride bikes, fish and crab.... Usually get in to Charleston for one night without the kids.

What makes this cottage unique

We particularly like the closeness to both the beach and Night Heron Park. Its also in a great central location for bike riding and its easy to make that quick trip for groceries at Newton Farms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Laura! I just wanted to tell you that we had a WONDERFUL time in your cottage at Kiawah. The cottage was beautiful and it was the perfect size for our family of 4. The kids loved the front room with twin beds so much they ended up staying in there together. Your location is perfect and was such an easy walk to the pool, and the beach. Also I loved the bed in the master bedroom. Do you mind me asking what type of mattress that is? I am 18 weeks pregnant with our 3rd child and my back has been bothering me, but I slept great on that mattress. I am now lobbying my husband to replace ours!!!

Anyway the only thing we would have changed was the weather, because it rained 2 days we were there :( We still managed to have fun though and hope to return again next summer.

Thank you again for sharing your family's home with us. We really did have a wonderful time!

Tidy and efficient, well equipped and comfy cottage

  • 4 of 5

Easy access to beach and shady break from full sun under the trees, great for biking around, lots of places to explore. Beautiful beach for biking also. Loved the dolphins at the inlet. Plush dining at various restaurants in the resort, as well as ice cream treats, and we brought in food and had all we needed in the kitchen to prepare meals. Very comfortable for 4 - 6 people and great weather in December, 65-70's. Heat pump was a little noisy.

Great long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at this cottage. We came back because the home is so comfortable and the owners are great. We took advantage of the resort privileges and used the island shuttle, visited the Sanctuary and had drinks on the back lawn, had dinner at the Ocean room, and had long walks on the beach. It was the perfect relaxing weekend in the midst of the holidays. We will definitely be coming back.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect family weekend. The cottage was nicely furnished and comfortable. The best compliment is that my granddaughter did not want to leave. It was our first trip to Kiawah Island, but it won't be our last.

Perfect place to stay with a family or just a couple's get away

  • 5 of 5

My family (9 of us) and I traveled on Thanksgiving day for a 4 night/3 day stay. The home was very clean, we had everything we needed in the home, and it was very close to all of the resort activities. My grandchildren were about to walk/ride on the beach, swim in a heated pool, see the tree lighting, visit with Santa and Ms. Claus, and visit the nature center. The resort is close to the Angel Tree, The Charleston Tea Plantation, James Island Christmas light show, and Charleston. One of our bikes had a flat tire, we called the main desk and they had someone there in 10 minutes to help us. Check-in desk was friendly and answered all of our questions. We plan on going back next Thanksgiving. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Great property without being pretentious.

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is everything it was advertised to be. It was clean and comfortable. This property is so livable and a great setup for a family with young children. The property is in the ideal location - close to the beach, Night Heron Park pool, and a 5-minute bike ride or less to just about every other activity and amenity.

The owners are extremely professional, and they worked with us when hurricane flooding cancelled our booking last fall. We were glad to book with them again when we planned our vacation this summer. Thank you, and we plan to return next year!
