Charming, comfortable, idyllic

  • 5 of 5

As ever, our Kiawah stay in the Sparrow Pond cottage was ideal. The amenities were ample, and considering we cook about 90% our meals, the kitchen provided everything we needed and more. The location -- a short walk or bike ride (<5 minutes) to the beach and the bike paths – is optimal. The screened-in porch became my little sacred space. I wrote music, listened to the rain when it came, and simply sat and thought during the early morning and late night. I cannot imagine this home being more suited to our vacation needs -- we want privacy, beauty, and peace, and we get it every time. Our children have their self-professed happiest week of the year, and we do too.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

Nicely renovated and up to date. Loved the walk in showers. A very enjoyable two weeks (July/August 2017) with our son and family. Very comfortable for six. Nice deck and screened in large porch. A quiet location, off the road.

Easy walk to the beach and pool. Just a great place all around. Well stocked kitchen with all the essentials, except for maybe a pot holder or two.

We will be back, for sure.

Wonderful week at Kiawah!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at Kiawah Island. This adorable cottage was conveniently located just moments from the beach; as well as, the pool. The location was especially nice when we went on an early morning walk or bike ride on the beach to watch the beautiful sunrise. (Not to mention how easily it is to get to Freshfields, or to make a quick trip for ice cream.) The cottage is nestled in a tranquil and charming area. In addition to the picturesque view, just as described, the cottage was clean and kitchen was well equipped to meet our culinary needs. We truly enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back again.

Cottage was nice however advertised for eight people. And that was correct eight could sleep there but could not share a meal. No table large enough for all to eat together. Sliding glass door could not be secured.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know about the broken lock on the sliding glass door. We have added security bars for each sliding glass door. There is a dining room table that seats 6 and a table on the screened porch that seats 6.

Great location, comfortable accommodations, great service

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-month (January-March) stay in this recently renovated cottage. We loved its convenient location--near the beach, shopping and Straw Market, while offering plenty of privacy. Many opportunities for biking, beachwalking and birding nearby. The three-bedrooms were perfect for the two of us and our occasional guests. The kitchen was well stocked. Sleeping accommodations were very comfortable. Loved having the Smart TV in master bedroom. We especially enjoyed the private screened-in porch that extends the living area. Beautiful wood floors, updated furnishings and attractive beach accents throughout. A special shout-out for the great service from Susie, the property manager, who was very responsive to our requests. We would definitely consider staying here again.

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
