Why Karen Suiter chose Kiawah Island

My family has vacationed on Kiawah Island since I was 9 years old. I have so many wonderful memories of time spent on the beach, sailing, and bike riding here as a child. I am thrilled to be able to share these experiences with my children now. While it is only 5 hours from our home in Atlanta, Kiawah is like escaping to another world with the semi-tropical surroundings.

What makes this cottage unique

While the cottage is only steps away from the ocean, it is also a short walk from Night Heron Park which features a Nature Center, playground, and recreational fields. Golf and tennis are also a short distance from the house. Shopping, dining, and a Mobile 5 star Spa (The Sanctuary) are also only a short drive.

Kiawah island cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our Kiawah vacation. The cottage is updated and well maintained. We had plenty of room for a family of five. The owner is great to work with and left us full size washing and kitchen detergents along with everything I needed in the kitchen for meals. We will definitely be back here in the future.

Beautiful home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of 5 for Spring Break this year. It is beautifully furnished with updated kitchen and baths, high end appliances, comfortable beds, and located right next to the beach path. The owner was great to work with. We had a couple of small things come up (lightbulbs out and towel rack fell off the wall in the bath), and she contacted us immediately to find out when it would be convenient for the maintenance man to come fix everything. It was a perfect week, and we would definitely rent this same home again. Highly recommended!

Kiawah Island Cottage - 486 Fiddler's Reach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and another couple recently returned from a week stay at this beautiful and relaxing cottage on Kiawah Island . The location was very close to the beach and the cottage was equipped with a gourmet kitchen and completely outfitted with everything needed for our stay. We felt right at home. I loved the screened in porch and the quiet street. It was so beautiful, comfortable and charming. I would recommend to anyone and hope to return the next time with our family. What a fantastic location!!

Gorgeous Home and Fabulous Owner!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I celebrated a 50th birthday party and had a wonderful time. The cottage is stunning! Beautiful appliances and home furnishings and very comfortable bedding. The screened porch and deck were fabulous. It is across from the beach (very short walk) and the property is just beautiful and in a perfect location. Karen was so nice to work with in making the reservations and making sure our needs were met. She recommended the Bohicket Marina and we drove down and watched the sunset over some afternoon cocktails - beautiful and relaxing. The next day we drove into Charleston for some shopping and lunch. That is such a fabulous town with lots to do. Then we ended our day on the beach at Kiawah. She had beach chairs already on the porch for us. The boardwalk is very close to her deck so it was so easy to carry items to the beach. The boardwalk also has a shower to rinse sand off of your chairs and flip flops. Everything was so convenient and nice. This is a perfect place to stay. I have used VRBO many times and I am very picky where I stay. I would give this 5 stars in every area!

A Cut Above the Rest

  • 5 of 5

Perfect vacation, in no small part because of the lovely cottage and the most hospitable owner, Ms. Karen Suiter. The location is perfect. Close to the beach. The cottage is well-maintained and attractively decorated, simple (which is my preference) with charming accessories. The gourmet kitchen is the best stocked kitchen I have seen in 16 + years of annual Kiawah visits. The gas stove made for perfect meal preparation. The large refrigerator was perfect. The quality of the linens impressive. Ms. Suiter, the owner, is a renters' dream. She exudes warmth, friendliness and charm, and is responsive. This year's vacation was wonderful and memorable, and made perfect by the lovely cottage, and charming owner who genuinely wants to ensure that wonderful and memorable experience.

Best rental and owner!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been visiting Kiawah Island for over 30 years now and this is by far the best rental we have ever had. The owners have thought of everything and then some! The location to the beach along with being close to the security gate means less time getting from one place to the other and more family fun. We have stayed in many of the areas of Kiawah and by far this is the best there is. I will definitely remember this trip and location for all future stays. Exceptional response from the owners and they are more than willing to make sure you enjoy your stay.
