About Michele Swicegood

My father purchased the cottage when Night Heron park area was developed. My sisters and I grew up enjoying the island and now we all bring our families. Kiawah has grown over the years but it is still a beautiful island and such a family friendly place.

Michele Swicegood purchased this cottage in 1980

Relaxing Beach Vacation with Kids!

  • 5 of 5

We love Kiawah for the nature, the family atmosphere and nostalgia for our family. This cottage is one of my favorites! Best location in Kiawah - close to park, beach and market. It's a short walk or easy bike ride to the beach. Spacious, clean cottage that is the perfect beach cottage - it is not super fancy but it is comfortable, has everything you need and perfect for families. Cottage has the typical Kiawah layout - two bedrooms with twin beds connected by a Jack and Jill bath and then the Master with a separate bathroom. Beds are cozy, kitchen is adequately furnished and the decor is beachy. Air-condtioning keeps the cottage super cool - take some pants for sleeping. We set it on 80 at night and still felt chilly. Perfect sleeping conditions - cool, dark and cozy bedrooms! We love having a cottage and prefer it to a villa. This cottage was our first pick with a back porch with seating for meals , a grill and a fabulous location - this cottage had it all! Michele the owner is quick to respond - solved a small problem for us within minutes. Trust me this cottage is a terrific place to spend the week while enjoying the most beautiful beach in the country. Book this cottage today! Enjoy your vacation.

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week last Summer and it was an awesome week. The unit itself is very comfortable and nice. Inside is clean, updated and very well kept. It was very comfortable for our family of four and we had plenty of room for ourselves and we easily had enough room for another person or two.

The location is great, too. Close to all of the things that we wanted to do and yet very quiet and peaceful. Just sitting on the porch reading was a delight. We rented bikes for the week and barely needed to use the car.... nice bike trails will take you about anywhere on Kiawah.

We had a great experience and would highly recommend it with no hesitation.
