About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

A cozy cottage nestled in woods, with Spanish moss hanging from the trees.

We have an extra large deck, and a paved walk from parking area to outdoor shower. Unique water heating system (Rinnai) provides unlimited hot water for all inside the cottage.

And the best part is you only have a two-minute walk through the trees on a paved path to the beach.

The ten-mile long beach is 150 yards wide at low tide, with a gentle slope to it ...perfect for young children. Plenty of shelling and sand-castle building.

Our entry to the beach is just a ten-minute stroll down the beach from the new five-star hotel 'The Sanctuary', the only hotel on Kiawah Island...where you can have a drink and enjoy their amenities...but not pay the high price to stay there.

Kiawah is the 'gem' of the Atlantic Coast...not crowded, well-protected with controlled access. There is plenty to do or do nothing...and Charleston nearby has all the other amenities you might want just a short drive away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: Judy and Ward have been married for more than 60 years. Judy grew up in NJ and Alexandria, VA. Ward grew up in Coronado, CA and MD. They spent 32 years serving in the US Army and were stationed in Japan, Germany, Italy and Panama, and throughout the USA. Ward had two tours in combat in Vietnam and one tour in Korea. They have four children, four spouses-in-law, fourteen grandchildren (three of them are married) , and two great grandsons. After Ward retired from the Army in 1988, they bought a 39-ft sailboat and sailed around the world over five years. This voyage covered 33,000 miles and started at West Point, NY and ended at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. They wrote a book and produced a VHS/DVD about their journey. 'Once Around' is aptly titled, since they don't intend to sail around the world again!!! They bought their cottage on Kiawah in 1978...before it was built! They and their family have enjoyed Kiawah ever since, and they love sharing it with old friends and new.

Why the Owner Chose West Beach, Kiawah Island, SC, USA:
We were stationed in Panama from 1978-1980, and wanted a get-away in the USA. After looking up and down the SE coast of the US we found Kiawah in 1975...before it was developed. We bought in 1978 and never looked back. We have remodeled our cottage three times: added an office/store room, expanded the deck, upgraded the bathrooms and kitchen, added an unlimited hot water supply with the Rinnai system, added a gas-log fireplace and a paved walkway from the parking area to the outdoor shower.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the security, the remoteness, the quietness, the Spanish moss in the trees, the bike paths, and most especially, the beach. In all of our travels over the years, we have never found any place that could match Kiawah for all these aspects that we treasure. We are addicted to the ocean, the beach, travel, our family and Kiawah. And, most especially, we thank God for allowing us the privledge of our times at Kiawah.
