About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths sleeps 6

This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage just a short walk to the beach. We allow up to 6 people and pets are allowed with a fee per night. The price quotes generated by this system will not be accurate for travelers with pets. I will alter the price after you inquire or request to book.

My family started going to Kiawah Island in 1990. We picked up a small condo and for the next couple of years every time we went down we scouted the listings until we were lucky enough to find this cottage. Its located in a very quiet and secluded neighborhood called Oceanwoods and it is very close to the beach!

We love having our KiawahCottageRental and we have have set it up so we can share it with you. By renting directly from the owners you can save a few dollars vs. using the rental companies, and experience one of the best locations on Kiawah Island!

Oceanwoods is a very popular Kiawah Island neighborhood for families who love a cottage near the beach. Secluded, at the end of Eugenia Avenue, it is close enough to walk to Night Heron Park or bike to other island amenities. The main attraction is the close proximity to an uncrowded part of the beach. Our cottage, 468 Oceanwoods, is a very short walk to the beach. Often you can hear the surf from the cottage.

Note: We have a security cam above the lock box focused on the parking lot and entry staircase.

About Paul Petkanas

I live in NY and am semi-retired. I go to Kiawah twice a year. Eventually I hope to retire there part time and travel.

Paul Petkanas purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Paul Petkanas chose Kiawah Island

There is something about Kiawah... When you go there you just don't want to leave and the memories last forever. We were fortunate to find our dream vacation cottage near the beach many years ago. Then we had to figure out how to make it work. Sharing it with other families as a KiawahCottageRental helps financially and has also been emotionally rewarding as well. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

You want to relax with family and friends? This is the place!

Owner's Response: Bill and Jana sent us a picture of their daughter helping the turtle patrol assist some baby loggerheads to the ocean! We're always thankful that our guests are able to have special memories to take home with them!

Claen, neat and had everything we needed. An amazing beach 5 minutes away.

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described. Everything we needed was there, clean and ready to go. You can access a pristine beach in 5 minutes and there were 5 golf courses all on the Island. There are so many things to do but for sure rent bicycles they will deliver them to your home. We mostly ate in but there are so many choices that you will not be bored.

Wonderful Weekend at Kiawah Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a basic beach cottage in one of Kiawah's oldest neighborhoods. That is not a criticism! It was exactly what we were looking for! When we are in the mood for fancy, we go down to The Sanctuary for a drink or the Ocean Course for a meal. But for a GREAT location -- quiet, beautiful, neighborhood just a stone's throw from the beach and close to other Kiawah sites we enjoy (Freshfields, Night Heron Park, etc.)-- this cottage is ideal! The house was clean and well supplied with all basic needs. The owner was great to work with. We will rent from him again.

Fantastic Kiawah Cottage: Great Location, Clean and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Kiawah Cottage was fantastic! Paul was a great host and, pre-arrival, gave us very specific instructions on how to check in, what to do/eat in Kiawah, etc. Beach access is a couple of steps from your front door. Also, top notch restaurants at the Santuary and Freshfield Village are within a few minutes drive. The kitchen was stocked with basic needs (plates, cups, silverware, etc). Paul allowing pets to join was just icing on the cake. Overall the stay couldn't have been better and we will be returning!!

Great Cottage right off the beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time at the house. It's right off the beach and has everything you'd want for a low key beach trip. The place is also dog friendly, which was critical for us and our chocolate lab. Hope to go back next year!

Awesome Quiet Getaway for a total family experience.

  • 5 of 5

This was the place we've been looking for to get away and enjoy life. Definitely not the party beach, tourist trap, or shopping meccas that most of the east coast has become. Very few But just enough businesses on the Island. Would recommend Kings Grille for dinner. Kiawah is a truly private beach. Residents & renters only. On the peak of Saturday there might have been 50 people as far as you could see.

There's alot of good inland fishing spots. Without a charter I wouldn't bring heavy fishing gear but most of Kiawah's inland areas are salt water or briney. Crabbing at the bridge across the river was good.

Our stay was a couple of weeks ago, mid-September. Perfectly Serene.

As I'm writing this Mathew is only hours away from inflicting it's wrath on the area with possible storm surges of 11 feet. We only hope and pray this area is spared from any devastation as we would love to return for another visit.

Thanks Paul, Craig Hoge Asheville, NC.

Map

Car: necessary

Kiawah has world class golf courses and a top rated tennis resort! The Ocean Course on Kiawah has hosted the Ryder Cup, the Sr. PGA and several other championship matches. The PGA Championship was held there in 2012! Kiawah has approximately 30 miles of leisure trails (walking, biking, etc.. Excellent place for birding and wildlife watching. The main attraction is the 10 mile long beautiful, crescent shaped beach. The only bad thing about Kiawah is the day you have to leave...:(
