Tranquil Lagoon Escape – Renovated Greenslake Cottage with Community Pool

This Greenslake cottage is truly the perfect escape! It is bright inside, while the lagoon view begets a tranquil getaway. The stylish kitchen has a clean, crisp design with new cabinets and granite countertops, and an eating area perfect for family gathering. The deck overlooking the lagoon has a grill to complete this inviting cottage. The king master has a new mattress (April 2015), and the 2nd bedroom has twin beds to accommodate any family scenario. Be sure to enjoy your morning coffee or evening beverage on the cozy screened porch while you gaze on beautiful lagoon backdrop. Free wifi.

NO PETS & NO SMOKING. Thank you.

All Greenslake Cottages are situated in a quiet, tucked away location in the West Beach Village, and in close proximity to many of Kiawah’s most treasured sights and activities. They provide a larger floor plan than other 2 bedroom villas on the island, and are single story, so there are no units above or below them.

• Short walking distance to Kiawah beaches.

• Full access to the Greenslake community pool with separate baby pool. Right on the

way to the beach.

• Easy access to bike and walking paths.

• Nearby activities for all ages, including golf, tennis, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding,

fishing, and much more.

• Bike, kayak and other rentals available.

• Fresh Fields Village (less than 3 miles).

• Nature watching - Dolphins, gators, waterfowl and other birds.

• Night Heron Park offers fun family activities for day and evenings.

• For a fee, Kiawah Island Resort offers golf, tennis and other resort activities to non-

resort guests, with the exception of their pools and fitness facilities.

About Susie Oringel

We purchased our cottage on Kiawah Island in summer of 2005, and I began renting it on VRBO during the weeks we were not able to enjoy Kiawah ourselves. In 2007, a friend on nearby Seabrook Island asked me if I would help her rent her villa also. Since I loved helping people plan their vacations in the area, I obtained my South Carolina Property Manager's License and began a business - Kiawah By Owner. I now help rent more than 30 other properties on Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island in addition to our cottage. I look forward to helping you plan your vacation - Susie Oringel

Just "OK"

  • 3 of 5

Cottage was older than we expected. Appearance of cottage in photos are accurate, however the quality of the remodeling of the cottage was less than you would expect. Weather was good and we enjoyed our time as always when visiting Kiawah.

Perfect Cottage for Family of 4

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying in Greenslake Cortages, but our first staying in the this unit. It is by far the most inviting and comfortable to date. The open kitchen was such a treat and allowed so much light from the slider off the living room. There were plenty of cooking utensils for all our meals. The gas grill was a nice treat! The bedrooms were comfortable and clean. The twin beds in the front bedroom worked perfectly for our kids. The bathrooms were updated and clean. The screen porch was our favorite as we would sit out and enjoy morning coffee and listen to all of Kiawah's amazing wildlife. The location of Greenslake cannot be beat as they are tucked away at the end of Kiawah Beach Drive for ultimate privacy, but still close enough to the beach and straw market. Our host was always very responsive whenever we had a question! Overall, we were very pleased and enjoyed our stay. We are already setting our sights on next summer!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Susie was great to work with. She got us a place on short notice and we had no problems. The cottage was exactly like the pictures. It was not far from the ocean and the area it was located was not crowded at all. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was nice and clean, and the living area was very nice. We will definitely give Susie a call the next time we are coming to Kiawah!

Beatiful cottage with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful remodeled open main area, screened porch, gas grill and short bike ride to the beach - everything we wanted! Extra surprise - it was stocked with a spice rack (we used up Italian Seasoning, btw), dish soap and laundry detergent - very useful. We donated a nonstick skillet. Baking sheet is needed, but someone had left some disposable ones, so we were fine. Highlight of the trip - we finally got to see the dolphins strand feed (west end of island at low tide) - sooo cool!

Great for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 1221 Greenslake Cottage over Labor Day weekend, and found the cottage to be clean and accommodating. Our kids enjoyed taking the trails on the short walk to the beach, as well as around the island. The cottage surroundings were quiet and it felt very private, and one morning, we even watched two deer feeding by the lagoon as we enjoyed coffee and croissants on the screened porch. The cottage is cozy, but spacious enough to provide furnishings for lounging and storing our belongings. We made complete meals "at home" and found the kitchen to be well-stocked for cooking and serving. We also appreciated the spacious pantry. The beds and linens were in notably good condition and were comfortable.
