About Susie Oringel

We purchased our cottage on Kiawah Island in summer of 2005, and I began renting it on VRBO during the weeks we were not able to enjoy Kiawah ourselves. In 2007, a friend on nearby Seabrook Island asked me if I would help her rent her villa also. Since I loved helping people plan their vacations in the area, I obtained my South Carolina Property Manager's License and began a business - Kiawah By Owner. I now help rent more than 25 other properties on Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island in addition to our cottage. I look forward to helping you plan your vacation - Susie Oringel

Well kept and located Sparrow Pond Cottage

  • 5 of 5

It is a pleasant stroll from the cottage amongst the trees, past the pool, to the spectacular beach. Definitely rent bikes for here and spend a few days exploring the interior on easy paved paths that wind through the island resort. The amenities of the cottage make any day complete. The kitchen is surprisingly well equipped, all rooms tidy and fully furnished, with digital services for distraction to suit. We all slept well and ate well in this cozy place like a nest full of happy sparrows.

Very clean and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for an entire week with my parents and brother for a wedding. The place was great and suited our needs. The cottage was very clean and had all the amenities, and the location was great - close to the beach and community pool, which was fantastic. Plus, we rented bikes from Alligator Bike (highly recommend!). Susie was very responsive in responding to questions before our arrival (and we didn't need to contact her at all throughout our stay).

If we ever find our way back to Kiawah, we'd definitely look into staying here again!

Very cute and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Nice porch swing outside! First time we walked inside brought a smile to our faces. Loved the knotty pine floors and kitchen and the raised tray ceiling in the living room which really opened the place. Enjoyed eating breakfast in the sunroom. Very nice that our teens each had their own room. A great stay in Kiawah!

3 Month Winter Stay for Neophite Snowbirds

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 wonderful months at 1028 Scaup Court on Kiawah Island. The unit allowed for comfortable living by providing comfortable furniture, a well equipped kitchen and a very responsive property manager. The neighborhood was very quite as most of the other cottages were not occupied. Access to the beach is a reasonable walk of about 800 steps. We hosted guests on occasion and everyone of them was impressed with the cottage and found the guest bedrooms to be comfortable. Kiawah Island is located about 20 miles away from the hustle and bustle of Charleston and its suburbs but the nearby Freshfields Market complex and Bohicket Marina offered enough stores, restaurants and services to meet our normal needs. The weather was outstanding during our stay and allowed for daily walks on the beach and for occasional trips into the city, Needless to say we recommend this cottage.
