Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
Hello! My name is Ian. I grew up in rural New Jersey, and graduated from Princeton University in 2006. I currently live in New York City (when I'm not lucky enough to be in Kiawah!) and work in the natural gas business. I love scuba diving, fishing, cooking, and bumming around on the beach. Fortunately, I can do all of those things here!
Ian purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Ian chose West Beach
My family has been vacationing on Kiawah Island for about 15 years. We loved it so much that we wanted a place to call our own. Of all the places we've been, no other soothes the body and soul like Kiawah. With quiet, award winning beaches, scenic bike paths, and beautiful golf courses, Kiawah is the perfect place to unwind.
What makes this Cottage unique
This property and location have been designed for families or couples to relax. If you are looking for big box retail, chain restaurants, and loud bars across the street, this is not the place for you. If you want to spend your afternoons on the beach, ride your bikes over miles of quiet trails, and watch dolphins feeding at the shore, this is definitely the place for you.

Rescued by great owners response!
Upon arrival we found the living area tv was not working. After letting the owners know they ordered an even larger flat screen tv from the local Walmart for us to use. This was awesome considering it was a guys weekend with plans of watching a lot of college football. The owners really rescued our weekend by stepping up and doing the right thing. Beautiful cottage, great fishing and a wonderful weekend getaway! We will be back!
I highly recommend these renters to anyone! Five stars across the board!
Nice place but some crucial frustrations
This is a very nice condo in a convenient place but lack of attention to detail made our stay very frustrating.
We stayed at Kiawah because my teenage child and his friends were playing in a soccer tournament in Charleston. We arrived just in time to watch the GA- Florida game, but the TV did not work in the main room. There was no instruction sheet on how to use the TV which I need but even my kids could not figure out how to use it. They watched TV in the bedroom instead of being able to eat snacks and dinner in the living/dining area while enjoying the game together. There was no phone number in the VRBO listing in order to reach out to the owner for help nor was there an email address. I ended up messaging and did not get a response until two hours later when I sent a second message. The answer I got was call Xfinity to fix the problem.
When I filled out information initially to rent the place I was asked how many people were coming, and I was very clear that I was coming with one adult and three kids. The Trundle bed was not made up for that third kid. There were sheets for the bed, but when i am paying to stay, the bed should already be made. The shower for the twin room did not drain.
This was the perfect spot for our family to get together! It was extremely clean and had everything we needed. O2ners were super quick to respond to initial questions. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Very Nice property that was Updated and clean. The owners were very accommodating. We had a wonderful stay and would stay here again.
Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend!
One of my favorite parts of Kiawah Island is watching the dolphins feed at Captain Sam's Inlet. Every night around sunset (and I mean every night), dolphins swim up to the banks of the river and chase fish right out of the water and feed on them in schools. It is one of the few places you can see this in the world. My walking map in the house shows directions to this area
