  • Trip to Kiawah Island

    "I was searching for a family vacation (wife, 23 & 25 year old daughters) and "they" selected Charleston. Why they wanted to leave Huntington Beach CA in the summer to go to S.C. - I don't know. But I gave in. And don't regret it one bit; well, I regret not taking my golf clubs. We picked this location first because of the proximity to the resort and beach; second because of the reviews. As soon I started communicating with the owner (Joy), I felt it was a great choice. She was pleasant to deal with and very eager to give us advice and things to do and places to get best prices. When we finally checked in - it was seamless. All the information was spot on. We must have a picked a quiet week because our car was the only one in our parking lot almost the whole week. The condo was private, quiet and comfortable. Location was awesome - right next to lagoon and short walk to beach. The interior of the condo was not as contemporary as some of the other condo's. But again, it was comfortable and well equipped. We definitely made ourselves at home right away and relaxed without worry. (Remember - three adult women in a two bedroom condo. What can go wrong there?) During our stay Joy continued to communicate with us via e-mail to make sure our trip was going well and if we needed anything; which we didn't. I have to say it was one of our more relaxing and enjoyable vacations in a while. We really look forward to a return trip to Kiawah Island like most of the other renters that have stayed at the condo multiple times. This time I will take the clubs and tennis rackets. Kids - maybe. Thanks Joy for a great vacation rental."

  • Spacious house

    "Nice house -- Good space for a large group - short walk to the beach on a private boardwalk. We enjoyed the stay on the island-- played lots of tennis! Ate some good food on St. John Island (Wild Olive - Chez Fish)"

    "We really enjoyed our stay at the Sparrow Pond Cottage. We found it to be fully supplied with everthing necessary for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is newly remodeled and fully equipped. We enjoyed the screened in patio and gas grill for cooking out. Pool and beach access were very close too ! We look forward to returning to soon! Also, the manager is very nice and quick to respond to any questions!"

  • A Lovely Spacious Home!

    "The photos do not depict how stately this home is...from its lovely grand foyer to the comfortable en suite bathrooms to the 10-foot ceilings and wide hallways! We loved having a truly comfortable and open floor plan for visiting and cooking together. The kitchen is very well stocked (all kinds of skillets, serving bowls, wine glasses, a blender, dish soap, etc.) and easy to work in while still being part of the group. Having bikes available in the basement was a true bonus! Tire pumps and tools handy if necessary. One of the most fun times was riding to the ocean at twilight on the bikes. A couple times deer were spotted up close. Our king-size bed/mattress was very comfortable, and our guests echoed this sentiment. The upstairs bedrooms are well-appointed (though we didn't find any extra sheets) and quiet enough for babies to take their day naps. There is a lovely painted wooden rocker which is perfect for taking a special photo of the little ones on the front landing. Brenda was extremely communicative and available any time I needed her by phone or by email. That is very important, because I couldn't find my papers upon entering the first gate to Kiawah! Brenda was only a phone call away. There were a few negatives (some unrelated to the home, I realize) and they include the following. The extreme heat and humidity prevented us from enjoying the screened-in porch or deck. The sauna-like conditions in August and "jungle-like" nature of the island kept away any breeze. But the air conditioners on both levels did their jobs, and we were quite comfortable inside. Further, the ocean is very dense with sand so the water is very murky. I recommend taking the available ocean floats located in the unfinished basement which were still sandy from the last guests. The lawn of this home is not suited for children to play outside as the foliage is densex and (BIG) spiders build huge webs all around. It is beautiful, but plan on the beach for outside play. Lastly, the rinse-off shower is located underneath the screened-in porch in a shed-like structure that is dark and closed in, a small issue because there are plenty of showers inside. We had such a good time in this beautiful home and want to thank the owners for listing it and for allowing us to experience the South Carolina's Kiawah Island!"
