About Preston or Florence Walklet

We spent a lot of weekends at Kiawah with our family and friends during the 10 years we lived in Charlotte NC.

Now that we are in Minnesota., we love coming back to the ocean, the wildlife and to beautiful Charleston.

Preston or Florence Walklet purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Preston or Florence Walklet chose West Beach

It is a great location within a quiet neighborhood, and close enough to the beach to hear the surf at night, while convenient to all the amenities.

Cute cottage + great location = wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Sparrow Pond cottage. We are a family of 6 (4 kids, 13 and under), and the house felt just right. The house was just as advertised -- even a bit closer than a 5 minute walk to the beach, I'd guess. The owners were wonderful and a delight to work with. It was our first time to Kiawah, and we loved it. The beaches are beautiful, and the bike paths are so convenient. We had plenty to do and enjoyed every minute of it.

Very comfortable and relaxing!

Perfect space for our group of 6. Convenient to beach and pool! Easy drive to Charleston and other attractions. Make sure to rent bikes while there. We had some great rides. Beach chairs/boogie boards on property were a hit with the kids.

Wonderful cottage!

  • 4 of 5

I loved our stay at this cottage. It has a lovely screened porch and it's a short 5 minute walk to the beach. The owner is very responsive and very nice. This cottage had all the necessities we needed to cook meals for our family. There are no tv's in the bedrooms which is perfect for me because I didn't want the kids hanging out in their room watching tv. We have two teenagers and a 2year old in our family. Helps with the family time. Overall a very nice, clean cottage. The only downfall for me was the beds. The beds are very firm and were very uncomfortable for 3 of the adults. However my daughter-in-law loved the bed. She said her bed was the most comfortable bed she'd ever slept in. So I guess it just depends on your preference.

Overall, I would highly recommend this cottage for the accommodations and also the customer service with the owner and Wyndham Vacations staff at Freshfields. Both were exceptional.
