Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are Charlestonians who have enjoyed Kiawah for many years. Hollis sells real estate on the island and Ann is a retired nurse now tour guide for the city. We love to share the local secrets with our guest and are close by should you need something.We personally manage our cottage with a hands on approach. We do not have hidden fees - ie : service fees or reservation fees , extra taxes or amenity fees . We strive to have it perfect for our guest as vacations are so important to us all.

Why the Owner Chose West Beach, Kiawah Island, SC, USA:
Love the quietness of this area and the close proximity to the beach. Being in the West beach makes a trip into Charleston a much shorter adventure. We are an end cottage in a cul de sac and have a wonderful open view of the lagoon. It is perfect in every way for the guest who is here to enjoy nature, the beach , and an afternoon in Charleston or maybe short bike ride to the market at Freshfield Village . The quietness of our area allows our guest to listen to the birds and relax - even if here for just for a short while.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Best lagoon view in the area. Great for watching nature and relaxing.Quiet, Quiet and Quiet
