About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to 1013 Thrasher Court, a Sparrow Pond cottage located on the West Beach in Kiawah Island, SC. This 'Tree House' cottage is a 4 BR/ 3 BA cottage situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.

Enjoy the 30 miles of paved bike or walking trails along all of Kiawah Island's beautiful landscapes. Take the kids to the Sparrow Pond pool and get splashing, just a 3- minute walk away. The 10 miles of private beach is a great spot for a bike ride, leisurely walk, or to simply relax and unwind. You can also enjoy all the different Golf and Tennis facilities the island have to offer. Freshfields is just a short drive or bike ride away for your shopping and dining convenience, and enchanting Charleston is only a 30- minute drive from Kiawah Island.

The spacious living/dining area is open, comfortable and displays a dining table which features seating for eight. The updated kitchen has everything you need to serve family and friends. Its peninsula opens to a second sitting area surrounded by full height windows. From this open and spacious living area, step out onto the screen porch and enjoy the quiet wooded view. This lovely home also features a wrap- around outdoor deck and gas grill.

A kids bedroom is on the left of the entrance displaying a children's bunk bed, with a double sized mattress on the bottom and twin bed on top; a T.V set up with built in DVD and VHS player is provided to view the extensive children's movie collection stored under the bed. A second bedroom holds two twin beds. The shared bathroom has all the amenities, including a hair dryer.

The master suite offers a king sized bed, walk-in closet and private bath. The master bath also provides a tub/whirlpool combination and two separate sinks. The second suite, just right to the living area offers a queen sized bed and private bath. Basic Cable, high speed Internet and Wi- Fi are available.

About Alina Bartlett

We are Richard and Alina Bartlett, the owners of 1013 Sparrow Pond Cottage. Both of our children learned to ride bikes, roller blade, fishing and crabbing in Kiawah. Every summer we host our extended family from Florida and every Thanksgiving we share the good times with those from Canada. We wish every one of our guests lasting and unforgettable memories.

Alina Bartlett purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Alina Bartlett chose Kiawah Island

During our 10th wedding anniversary we visited Kiawah, a Real Estate Agent and the rest is history. We chose this Barrier Island because of its natural beauty, relaxed atmosphere, miles of bike paths, and shallow safe beach, a must with small children.

What makes this cottage unique

1013 Sparrow Pond is located in the area we like to call “historic Kiawah” or the West End of the island. It is close to the Main Gate and easy access to Freshfields Village. We are a few minutes’ walk to both the neighborhood pool and the beach. A short bike ride on the beach will take you to the West End of the island where the river meets the sea and where you can experience haunting sunsets and plenty of marine life. The tidal pools are great fun for the young ones. We are also a short walking distance from the Cougar Point Golf Course and the West End Tennis Center.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time and found your cottage very comfortable and had everything we needed. The extra queen bedroom was perfect for my mom as she was able to wheel her walker right into the huge shower. We loved the beach and rented bikes and the boys enjoyed the freedom. We saw lots of birds, alligators and even a deer. The kitchen was wonderful and very easy to work in. Much to my husband and my disappointment – our 3 sons loved all the TV channels! It did come in handy on our one very rainy day. We ate the Fat Hen and Rosebank farms Restaurant – great food! We found the Fresh Fields very easy to get to and the grocery there was great. My husband and I and one son walked all the way to the far western tip of the beach where there is an estuary – we saw a dolphin and the seclusion was awesome! Thank you for a wonderful time!!!

Fabulous accommodation, in superb location, just a couple of minutes to pool and beach. I would recommend this cottage without reservation. It is in exceptional condition, and fitted throughout with all you could need.

Many thanks to the owners.

Wish we could've stayed longer!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage for the Kiawah Marathon. The location was very convenient. My husband and I rode bikes (rented from Seaside Cycles) the 2.5 miles to the start/finish line. Our young teenagers LOVED riding bikes to the shops and restaurants on the island. There are safe bike paths all the way from Sparrow Pond to the Freshfield Market Center. They enjoyed having that Independence. The cottage is well decorated with comfortable bedding and soft towels. We hope to have the opportunity to rent this place again in the future!

beautiful home on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the sparrow pond cottage is always wonderful. The cottage itself is a beautiful, open space. The screen porch is perfect for morning coffee since I'm an early riser. I would certainly stay again.

Great stay!

This is a very family friendly place. Bedrooms were plenty adequate - not huge, but just fine. The sun room is a plus, and the screened in porch was great for early morning reading, and late evening card playing! Loved it!

Another wonderful week on Kiawah.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a wonderful Sparrow Pond cottage, which we had stayed in before. This is our favorite neighborhood on Kiawah. We enjoyed eating at Red's and Fischer's. Also Chez Fish and A.W.Shucks in Charleston. We were disappointed the Gilligan's is apparently never going to reopen. Hope to be able to return next year while the grandchildren are still young enough to want to come with us.

Owner's Response: Gilligan's reopened after extensive renovations due to a fire. Our children ate there and mentioned that the food is as good as always and they did like the new decor.

Great Kiawah cottage - 8 minute walk from the beach

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this property several times in the last few years. The owner's description gives an accurate idea of this property, although the pictures do not convey how big the living room/kitchen/dinning room area really is. This property is quite spacious and the master suite in particular is very cozy.
