2BR/2BA/Sunroom cottage close to the beach, Resort privileges

Our cottage is currently being renovated and expected availability is May 1, 2018. Sorry for any inconvenience.

482 Fiddler’s Reach is in the family-friendly Oceanwood Cottages community. With its proximity to both the beach and Night Heron Park, it is one of the best locations on Kiawah. Fiddler's Reach is the last street off the cul-de-sac on Eugenia, and is approximately a 3-4 minute walk to the beach. A bike trail at the northeast end of Fiddler's Reach leads directly to Night Heron Park (much quicker than driving!).

Our guests enjoy the exclusive benefits offered by Kiawah Resort and are included in the rental rate. These RESORT PRIVILEGES provide our guests with complimentary access to the West Beach fitness center and the three Resort swimming pools (West Beach, Tennis Club and Night Heron pools, including the Night Heron water park); discounts on golf, tennis, and recreation and nature programs; complimentary shuttle service to Resort locations, and 24 hour check-in.

Our beach cottage is completely furnished with an open floorplan. The cottage renovations in early 2018 make this cottage even more desirable, including a walk-in shower in the master suite, new cabinetry and granite counters, and new fixtures throughout. The dining and living rooms are one large area flowing into a cozy sunroom. The cottage can accommodate up to six people: a comfortable king bed in the master bedroom with an attached bathroom; a guest room with two twin beds; and a sleeper sofa in the living room with a queen size mattress.

The cottage is on the Resort's rental program. The Resort provides all bed and bath linens, a starter supply of laundry detergent, dishwashing soap, paper products and bath toiletries. Upon checking in at the pools, guests are provided with towels; you will need to bring your own towels for the beach.

Both the living room and master bedroom have flat screen TVs and we provide secure WiFi throughout the cottage. A small collection of books and board games is available for rainy days or quiet time. We also have beach chairs and toys in the storage chest located on the sundeck.

The dining room provides access to a large private sundeck - a quiet place to relax with family and friends. A charcoal grill is in the back just off the deck - you will need to bring your own charcoal. For our guests' convenience, there is an outdoor shower off the sundeck to remove excess sand and lotion. The parking pad can accommodate two cars.

Bookings of 3 nights or less incur the cleaning fee in addition to the quoted rates.

Our cottage is a smoke-free, pet-free home to accommodate guests with allergies. Thank you for respecting this policy!

About Kathy Meier

Bill and I live in Cincinnati, OH and travel down to Kiawah every opportunity we can get. We have wonderful memories of vacation on Kiawah with our four children, and now have the great pleasure to have our grandchildren join us.

Kathy Meier purchased this Cottage in 2016

Why Kathy Meier chose West Beach

For the first 7-8 years we vacationed on Kiawah, we stayed in various Oceanwoods Cottages. The location is perfect for families - a small dead-end street that is a three-minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to Night Heron Park. We hoped that one day we would be able to purchase one of these cottages, and hope you enjoy it too.

What makes this Cottage unique

The former screened porch has been converted to a sunroom off the living room and master bedroom. This cozy room can be closed off from the other rooms to provide a quiet and comfortable place to relax. We are also one of the very few Oceanwoods cottages on the Resort's rental program.

                                                                  Lauren S.

This is a single family home on a street that offers privacy. We are a family of four and greatly enjoyed having all the resort amenities-pools, shuttle, etc. I was even able to have groceries delivered and waiting for us upon our arrival. The house itself is roomy and clean. The enclosed sun room was an excellent space for quiet time alone. In addition, there was a large outdoor patio, grill, and pool/beach accessories. We had an amazing vacation and will definitely book this house again when we return to Kiawah! Owner is very responsive and answered all questions quickly and thoroughly while we were planning the trip.

                                                                  Perfect place for a weekend stay

                                                                  Robert R.

Our family enjoyed both the cottage and amenities as well as how close the property is to Night Heron, Sanctuary, and the beach. The owner is friendly and responsive. The cottage is clean and has all the amenities you might want, and having resort privileges is a huge plus. We were able to ride the shuttle to the amazing restaurants at the Sanctuary and the Ocean Club, walk the kids to the pools at Nigh Heron park, and generally enjoy all that Kiawah offers. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

                                                                  Cozy Cottage

Both bedrooms had comfortable beds. The location was within walking distance to Night Heron Park/pools, and a short, pretty, walk to the beach. The cottage also had a large assortment of beach chairs, toys, etc.

                                                                  Clean, comfortable home, very convenient to the beach!

Any information or service needed, all you have to do is call the front desk, even though you're not in a hotel. We arrived at 1:30 AM and still had no Difficulty getting keys to the home. We would love to stay here again!

The listing on VRBO was accurate and lived up to our expectations. We would recommend this vacation rental to family and friends. This cottage has everything you need. Just bring your bathing suit and a change of clothes. Order and have your groceries delivered from the Straw Market. We are definitely going to book this rental again next summer.
