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 25 other properties on Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island in addition to our cottage. I look forward to helping you plan your vacation - Susie Oringel

Great time at Greenslake Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time spending Spring Break in Kiawah. The cottage was in a perfect, quiet location. It was well stocked and extremely comfortable. We loved sitting in the rocking chairs on the back deck and looking out at the lagoon. It was a 7-minute walk to the beach and 5 minutes to the pool. We appreciated the West Beach location. It was convenient to everything in Kiawah and only a few minute drive to Freshfields Village. Susie Oringel is a pleasure to work with. We wouldn't hesitate to return!

This is a great little cottage/villa, minutes to the beach and Harris Teeter Grocery Store.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on Kiawah Island. The cottage was clean, quiet and had everything we needed. Miles of bike trails to explore and 10 miles of beach which we mostly had to ourselves. We were fortunate to have the most perfect weather during Thanksgiving week. The remodel of the villa is very nice, lovely kitchen and we enjoyed the sun room for morning coffee looking over the lagoon. If I had to recommend any improvements it would be: Darkening shades in the 2nd bedroom where the street light shines. The twin mattress was very soft for an older adult, probably ok for kids. The living room carpet had a lot of stains which needed to be treated or replaced. However, none of this would deter us from staying there again. Overall, a comfortable place in a very good location.

The cottage was close to everything. The bike trails made easy to navigate. We stayed a week and experienced a different activity everyday. Never getting bored. The cottage is only suited for 4 people, if you like your space it is not for you. There is no bath tub so a long relaxing spa bath is out. We would rent again.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a good time and look forward to your next vacation at this cottage. Future renters please note - this Greenslake Cottage is the same size as all the other Greenslake Cottages plus the living space of the sunroom. Some guests appreciate the 2 walk in showers. We look to sharing this cottage with you.

Perfect time at the villa in Kiawah

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful time at Kiawah. The villa was perfect for us and the activities, including everything from walks, bike rides, beach time, golf and great places to eat - including perhaps the best of all - our restful quiet moments on the back porch. I cannot think of anything negative about our stay except perhaps when we had to check out and leave. Susie Oringel was very helpful throughout the whole process. We look forward to visiting again in the near future.
