My hubby and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at this cozy cottage. It was everything we expected and more. Even more cozy in person, even more comfortable than it looks.
I wish we could have stayed much longer. It was so quiet and nice. The walk to the beach was nothing, really. We loved watching the birdies out on the back porch. What a treat when we got to see a Blue Heron in the back yard. There were so many personal touches, the kitchen was very well equipped. It was wonderful, relaxing and I would go again in a heart beat.
Thank you.

It has taken me a month to write this review, part of that purposeful because I wanted some time to pass by to allow me to really evaluate our vacation here, and part because we've been so busy. I find myself thinking about our stay in this cottage, on this part of the island, and of the beach itself very often which is a good sign and has prompted me to write this review. First, this part of Kiawah Island...to me....is the most desirable part of all. It is heavily wooded and beautiful, full of wild life, very quiet, and closest to the entrance/exit to the island. You could literally spend hours just walking around exploring, riding your rented bikes, and enjoying the outdoors and lagoon without even having gone to the beach. The drive to Charleston is not bad at all, not like I thought it would be. It is much closer than you might think. It was neat to also be able to easily drive to and visit a couple of plantations. Our 2 favorite places to eat...on the island...were the Southern Kitchen (best burgers!) and The King Street Grille (best everything!). The beach is just incredible; at low tide it seems as wide/deep as a football field and is not crowded. The sand is hard packed, and there is always a breeze blowing. We took some of the best sunrise photos here that we have ever taken. And now for the cottage...this residence is one of the cleanest, neatest places we have ever stayed. The owner is very friendly, very communicative and helpful. We totally felt comfortable (like home), felt very safe, loved the community. It is very family oriented here. The screened-in back porch is wonderful; we spent hours out there watching birds, playing cards, eating snacks and just relaxing. There is a gas grill on the deck which we got to use as well. We have been back home now for 1 month and have told numerous people about our stay and this cottage, and would ourselves return to Kiawah Island to stay in this same cottage, in the future. The pool is nice. It's in the woods but is small, and doesn't get too much sun. When you see the other nearby resort pools size and amenities, you may find yourself wishing you were able to visit them, but in truth with such an amazing beach nearby where you can get all the sun you need, the size of the pool becomes a non-issue. A very sincere "Thank You" to our host. You were an absolute pleasure to work with, and you do indeed have a very nice place. We hope to be able to stay with you again in years to come.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this wonderful cottage and enjoyed every minute of it! We loved how the owners were such great hosts and outfitted it with anything you'd think you'd ever need. While we were well prepared because we weren't sure what to expect, it exceeded our expectations. Kiawah is a beautiful place and this cottage is so close to the golf course and the white sand beach. Just an absolutely wonderful relaxing vacation. Thanks for having us!

A wonderful cottage for a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We have not been back to Kiawah for some time and on a return trip from a cruise we decided to stop for a few days in Charleston. Ann and Hollis were wonderful to be able to accommodate our needs on short notice. One of the best place on Kiawah, cozy and comfy are the right words. We enjoyed every minutes on the back deck over the lagoon watching birds of all kind, jumping fishes and walking deers at dusk.
Very short walking distance to the beach followed by a long walk to Captain's Sam inlet to watch from time to time playful dolphins was our daily exercise.
The cottage has been thought through all the details and in top shape. The newly created village of Freshfields, 2 miles away is a pleasure for shopping or enjoying a drink.
We love the place and will return

Owner's Response: Welcome back to Kiawah. It is a beach that calls you to return again and again. Happy to share our cottage with folks who appreciate all the extras that we have added to our cottage to help our guest feel at home. We strive to equip our cottage so that one only needs to bring their personal items to enjoy their stay and yet not give up all the comforts of home.
Kiawah is a resort that respects nature and allows our guest to enjoy the company of the wildlife. We jokingly say that the birds are the only neighbors you will hear at the cottage. We agree the location of the cottage allows one to enjoy the best of Kiawah.
Thank you for the excellent care of our cottage and come again very soon.

Beautiful cottage on the beautiful island!

  • 5 of 5
Ann and Hollis were so accommodating to fit us into their homey cottage in such short notice. We were able to stay for four nights and enjoyed every waking second of it. The short distance to the beach was convenient enough that we were able to go every day. Walking along the beach was quiet and romantic. Also, one day we were able to drive into Charleston since it was only about half an hour away. It was wonderful dealing with Ann and Hollis. They made it more personal than staying at a big resort or a hotel. Definitely like a home away from home. We will recommend this island cottage to everyone we know, mad we will most definitely try to make this an annual vacation spot.
