About Barb

We are a family of 5 and now with 4 small grandchildren, that fell in love with Kiawah and the Charleston area many years ago. We love sharing our Kiawah home and having others tell us how they have fallen in love with Kiawah too! Many of our families have come every year for their vacation over the past 11 years and have made our home theirs. We love Kiawah all year, and especially love our time there in the fall and spring.

Barb purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Barb chose East Beach Village

Since we are beach, tennis, golf and nature lovers, our choice to have a home at Kiawah was easy. We visited at least 20 different beach areas and nothing anywhere compares to Kiawah and Charleston. We chose the Night Heron/East Beach area because it was the very best family location on the island- we loved the private and comfortable family cottages with double carport and the easy walking distance to the beach and the center of all Kiawah activities (Night Heron Park), the pool and water parks and Kamp Kiawah and Nature Center. No need to get in the car!

What makes this cottage unique

As a member of the Kiawah Resort program, we have all Resort privileges for ourselves and our guests. Award Winning Sanctuary Hotel, East Beach Village, Ocean Course Club House bar and restaurant, and Market. Bike to Freshfield's Village as well! Since we are a private stand alone home, there is private parking and yard on a quiet lagoon for children to play and unwind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Email Received from our Wooten Family Guests 6/22/08:

Hi. Just wanted to let you know that we had a WONDERFUL time at your beautiful home. I am actually sitting here at work wishing I was still there. The weather was absolutely terrific. Your house is very beautifully decorated and is very comfortable. We have been coming to

Kiawah for 10 years and I can honestly say that your home has been our favorite. Having resort amenities is such a nice feature as the kids love to go the pool also. We will definitely be back next year! Thank you so

much for giving us the opportunity to stay at your home. (Didn't mind at all watering the petunia's. They were a nice addition to the front deck.)

Thanks again and already looking forward to next year!

Wonderful house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was excellent and the porch was great as a second living room area, especially as we had 7 adults in the house. The jack and jill bathroom is actually only connected to one bedroom directly and is connected to the other via a hallway with a door that can be kept open if desired or shut to allow private access to the bathroom. That was great for us, since we had someone sleeping in the living room who needed bathroom access at night.

The headboards on the twin beds were narrow enough that we were able to push the two beds together and tie the mattresses together with a strap to make a king sized bed to allow all 3 couples on the trip to share a bed.

The kitchen was well stocked and the table was able to easily seat 7 by moving a chair. We could have fit 8 if needed.

The walk to the beach was only a few minutes and the walk to the pool area was similarly short. The pools were both great, we really enjoyed the water slides and the heated pool. The disc golf course was also a big hit.

We ended up needing a couple extra towels/washcloths and housekeeping had them out to the house 15-20 minutes after I called, which definitely impressed us.

The beach chairs, sand toys and boogie boards in the storage area under the house were in great condition. Not having to pack those items was a big help.

Barb, the owner, was very responsive to all of my questions and helpful.

We would definitely stay at this house again if we ever return to the area!

Amazing location, beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with 2 younger kids, 2 teenagers and 2 adults. The location next to Night Heron park was so convenient for the kids. The teenagers loved the close proximity to the basketball courts and the pool was an easy walk. It was slightly further to the beach but not a long walk by any means. The house itself is perfect, relaxing, cute decor and fully equipped with a brand new dishwasher, stacked washer/dryer and every kitchen thing you could possibly need. The beds were comfortable as was the whole cottage. There were beach chairs and umbrellas and plenty of sand toys for the kids. Thanks so much Barb and Steve for the wonderful hospitality! It was a pleasure dealing with you.

Perfect location if you have active kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in this perfect cottage! Being 1 block from the waterslides and a 5 minute walk to the beach made it the perfect location for our family as we were able to walk and ride our bikes everywhere (our kids are elementary age). We were able to eat in a lot because the kitchen was well stocked so we were able to save our money to enjoy other things like riding our bikes to the market to get ice cream a few times and spend a day in Charleston.

The entire rental experience was wonderful as Barb, the owner, was so responsive and helpful from beginning to end. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to vacation in Kiawah, in fact, we are already planning our vacation at the same house again next year!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful with great proximity to the pools (resort amenities included) and beach. This is our fifth stay at Kiawah and hope to stay here again. Plenty of room and all you need for a wonderful vacation (Barb I will pay extra for Espn that is the only thing I missed) but thanks again for opening your home to us.

Beautiful Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was by far one of the nicest cottages we've stayed at on Kiawah. We've been vacationing here on and off for 30 years. Very nice location and very clean!! The weather wasn't too cooperative, but we had a good time anyways. So nice to go South at the end of winter!!

Our family had a wonderful time in your home! The four seasons room was perfect for spending time together. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed to make our stay most enjoyable. We saw deer around dusk 2 evenings. Our 2-year old grandson had all the space he needed to play and the short walk to the playground was great! It was a little too cool for the pool - we hope to enjoy that on our next visit. Thanks for making your home available! We loved it!
