West Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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 Kiawah Island

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.

Kiawah & Charleston Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I found this property to be exceptional in every way. The furnishings were not just pretty, they were comfortable especially the beds. We loved how close the walk is to the beach & the pool is very nice. Bohicket Marina is a great place to walk, eat and watch the sunset. You can stay in Kiawah and have everything at your fingertips or drive into Charleston to dine and enjoy a historic carriage ride. We cannot wait to go back! We will stay at 21055 again & again.

Can't Wait to Return!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect cottage!! It's beautiful with loads of room and everything you could possibly need.

We cooked in and everything we needed was there---also dined out since there were many convenient

choices nearby. Great community close to the beach and biking trails everywhere. Sandy has made sure

we have all the information we need from local activities to what to do in Charleston right at our fingertips.

I can't wait to return and would definitely recommend this cottage to couples or a family. Thank you Meaders.

Meaders Cottage is the place to be!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at Sparrow Pond. We have a family of four including two teens one boy one girl whom each bought along a friend. Your cottage was very spacious and accommodated us all very well. We loved having the extra beach towels for the kids! The amenities were a big help as well. Perfect weather as always! Dined out at CHEZ most delicious and friendly place to eat. Shopped at Fairfield's and farmers market as well. Very friendly people and clean place to be! Thank you Meaders :-D

Beach bums

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay. The House was beautiful and spacious with all the amenities that we needed. The community was relaxing and quiet and we enjoyed ourselves on the beach and in the city.we will definitely Recommend to others with a 5 star review . I especially liked the special touch of the information book that helped us with bike rentals to restaurants to shopping and ghost tours in the city. Also tons of information on the history of Charlston.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay...everything we needed, except our clothes, was already there! As a military family, we have occasionally come across a place we like enough to return...London, Prague, Paris, Garmisch, Salzburg...we plan to add this place to that list! Sandy was a great help for the 6 of us, giving ideas that would accomodate both our young kids and older parents...we just couldn't fit it all in during the week of our stay. Ride the bikes to the inlet, go to Charleston and take a carriage ride, eat at Bowen's Island and Chez Fish, picnic at Angel Oak, BBQ at the house, play tennis down the road, hike to the lighthouse at end of Folly Beach after walking the Folly pier, hit the beach at Kiawah and find seashells, go to Freshfields for dinner and shopping, pet the wild deer, play disk golf at Night Heron Park, hit the Ocean Course for a great view, go to the Hunley exhibit, and bring the bread (dough) machine to make a few treats (cinnamon rolls, scones, and calzones are family favorites) in the well-stocked kitchen. Weather was perfect...thanks again for a great place to vacation!
