About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Just 21 miles from historic Charleston, Kiawah Island is nestled in semi-tropical wilderness, picturesque marshes, and ten miles of wide, unspoiled, golden beaches.

Our NEWLY RENOVATED, lovely villa on the cul-de-sac in Sparrow Pond is conveniently located in West Beach Village with only a five-minute walk to the ocean, private pool, shops, restaurants, tennis courts, bike rental shop, and Cougar Point - one of the five golf courses on the island.

Do not worry about bringing anything but your clothes and food. We provide beach towels and beach chairs too! Bike rentals are available at discounted rates and will be waiting for you as your arrive and picked up after you depart to cruise the beach or the 22+ miles of biking trails around the island. Be sure to make time for sunsets on the beach or perhaps you would prefer our wrap-around deck which lends PRIVACY and encourages quiet downtime.

About Sandy Meaders

Our family lives in Atlanta where my husband and I attended Atlanta high schools and colleges. Our three girls were all raised in Atlanta attending different colleges in Georgia.

Sandy Meaders purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Sandy Meaders chose West Beach

Our family has grown up visiting this beautiful island and enjoy wonderful memories . My husband proposed to me at Mingo Point in 1987 and our oldest daughter was married at the PGA clubhouse in 2012. Our children continue to spend annual vacations and holidays at Kiawah with us and now we are enjoying it with our grandchildren!!

What makes this cottage unique

Sparrow Pond is the ideal location on Kiawah Island. You can hear the surf from our cottage but have the privacy of the woods. The culdesac is wonderful for having children play without the worry of traffic. The free (for our guests) pool is only a quick 2 minute walk and the beach is only a 5 minute walk. Very safe!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the wonderful relaxing week at the beach. We have stayed in many beach houses up and down the Atlantic and have decided that Kiawah Island is our favorite. We thoroughly enjoyed the bike paths, wildlife, especially the dolphins! What a treat! The weather was perfect. Enjoyed beach time, toured the sites in Charleston and ate many delicious meals. we had a great dinner at High Cotton for our anniversary and it was truly special. Your home is well appointed and had all the extras to make us feel at home. Thanks again and hope to return soon.

Lovely and comfortable

The Meaders home was very well appointed and beautifully decorated. I concur with all the prior reviews about this great rental. We enjoyed our stay there. Thank you for providing all the little things we needed to enjoy the visit.

Great location and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 2-week stay in Kiawah. Have been coming to Kiawah for 35 years and have stayed in a variety of rentals. Our family agree this is at the top for a family get-together. Loved the open interior and the 3 bathrooms, one for each bedroom--a real plus. Short walk to beach and the neighborhood pool. Will rent again the next time we have the whole family together.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We loved renting this cottage for the week. It was very clean and well decorated. We had 6 people and it was perfect for us. We will definitely look at renting this place again.

The Meaders beach house was "above and beyond" our expectations. It is beautifully decorated and roomy without sacrificing comfort and charm. It was a very short distence from the beach (less than a five minute walk) and several great restaurants are a short bike ride away. Homeowners are very well organized and efficient; t was easy to tell that they truly cared about the wellbeing of their guests.

Lovely Spring Break 2017 Visit

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable home with easy access to the beach and a small pool. While we have been to Kiawah several times, Sandy (the owner) sent lovely suggestions and lots of information that were very helpful. The house is well used, but well loved, and the furnishings are very comfortable, so that laying on the couch to read a book seemed natural - especially with all the natural light! There are some staples in the kitchen (salt and pepper, other spices, etc) and plenty of towels, beach towels and needed sundries like soap and toilet paper. There is also a washer/dryer. All in all, a wonderful, low key place to stay - felt like home! Thank you, Sandy!

Great week at Meaders Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We've spent many vacations in Kiawah over the past 30 years, mostly in Sparrow Pond. This cottage is well-equipped, well-maintained, cheerfully decorated, has comfortable furniture and beds, and is ideally located near the pool and beach. The best place we've ever had on Kiawah. Will do it again...and again.
