Experience the true meaning of relaxation as you enjoy breath-taking sunsets over the Kiawah River from our screened back porch and deck!

Sumter, harbor cruises, the WWII Battle Cruiser Yorktown, and many carriage and bus tours. The bustling open-air market is a great shopping adventure where you can observe ladies making and selling sweetgrass baskets.

After a lifetime in music and education, we've retired and are busy enjoying life. We have time now to enjoy our two daughters and their families with three wonderful grandsons and an enchanting granddaughter. We live in Fishers Indiana, home of sports on steroids.
Kerry Zack purchased this cottage in 2001
We bought our little piece of paradise quite by accident when we visited Kiawah for a friend's wedding. When we saw our cottage, we thought it was almost too good to be true. It had everything we were looking for in a place by the sea. There's an easy walk to the beach and a beautiful pool and the location by the river makes it ideal for us to enjoy canoeing and kayaking. We also catch Atlantic blue crabs there that we love to eat! The house itself has a screened porch, a fireplace and a view of the water. What could be better?
Great location with beach, pool, biking trails, within 7 minutes of grocery shopping. 35 minutes from historic Charleston with first class restaurants, Imax theatre, museums, aquarium. Kiawah Island is free of commercial activity and is devoted to conservation. Wildlife is abundant from alligators, dolphins, eagles, bob cats, and the famous loggerhead turtles that nest in the dunes. Wide beaches, gentle waves, a chance to 'sail' down the beach on a bicycle are yours when you vacation there. Only 45 minutes from Charleston International Airport. Annual Spoleto Festival in late May and early June. Stay on the islands and attend the concerts too!
