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 704-277-2912

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.

Beautiful and fabulous location.

  • 5 of 5

We were there the week of hurricane Matthew so we left early. But we had several fabulous days. We had alligator bikes drop off bikes before we got there. Then we rode in morning. Beach. Rode to lunch. Beach. Then dinner. And then bike ride. The location is fabulous. The inside is clean and nice. The smell is nice. I'll be back.

Comfortable and convenient to beach

  • 4 of 5

Property located in a very nice community which is close to the pool and a short walk to the beach. We loved being able to ride bikes both on the island and on the beach. Beach is beautiful and uncrowded. Great family environment. House is comfortable with an open floor plan. Would rent it again.

The cottage was spacious, comfortable, and had everything we needed plus some nice extras!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was very comfortable and accessible to the beach and pool. We had a wonderful weekend at Kiawah and hope to return sometime next season. And, yes, we would try to book the same cottage again.

Comfortable Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family just ended 10 days in paradise. Kiawah Island is more

beautiful than I imagined. The pool and beach are truly just a 5-10 minute walk away. (I counted about 600 steps from the house to the water's edge.) There are numerous cycling and walking paths in the neighborhood, and around the rest of the island. But the best treat for us was riding for miles up and down the beach, with the wind in our faces, and waves crashing next to us.

The comfortable and accommodating Sparrow Pond home coupled with Susie Oringel's exceptional property management made our family vacation absolutely perfect. The home is true to the pictures on VRBO. It has a very efficient use of space, along with large windows, skylights, and a tray ceiling in the family room to make the home feel larger. We were surprised that our family of 6 adults fit so well. Several of us cooked together, and the spacious kitchen accommodated us all without bumping into each other. We used the sunroom table for puzzles, reading, card games, and morning coffee; and ate at the counter and dining area table. There's plenty of comfortable seating area to watch tv.

The home is well-equipped with large, functional appliances, and adequate cooking equipment. The only thing we found missing is a cutting board, so we bought an inexpensive set at the Tanger Outlet. (Our way of "paying it forward" for the future guests.). The super-sized washer and dryer are in a separate laundry, convenient and relatively quiet.

The shared bathroom is the only room overdue for renovation. Age and humidity have taken its toll, but my adult-aged children didn't seem to mind. They did a great job renovating the master bath. So the other bath may be on the "to-do" list.

Susie graciously provides information with grocery options. With the exception of seafood, my family was completely satisfied by what Harris Teeter had to offer. As a suggestion, get the HT Smartphone app, and VIC (loyalty) card, and the groceries will be quite reasonable. They had some exceptional surprises, too, like grilled chicken breasts, and inexpensive bagels/muffins/pastries produced by a local bakery.

We will definitely return to Sparrow Pond. We've vacationed in Rehoboth Beach, Hilton Head, Aruba, and Myrtle Beach, to name a few beaches. But Kiawah beats them all.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We are glad you had such a good time and hope you return again. Future renters please note that the guest bathroom was completely renovated in November 2016 - after this guest stayed at the cottage.
