Guestbook comments from the owner

This cottage is truly a home away from home. This was the perfect location just 45 minutes from our downtown Charleston home. A quick get away to a lush island with my family of 5 plus our dog. The beach is literally across the street you can hear the waves at the front door. The beach access is gorgeous and convenient. Yvette has done an incredible job with this beach cottage expanding the ceiling giving this chic cottage a larger feel. This cottage has more windows than the other cottages in the area again giving it a open feel bringing in more light and lots of views. The kitchen was well stock with beautiful culinary pieces and high-end kitchen appliances. There was plenty of stuff to do with board games, movies, xbox and wii games for the kids. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone seeking a great island experience. Yvette made our experience a delight we look forward to booking this place again in the near future.

Great location, good quarters, but bugs!!!

  • 2 of 5

The owner was very responsive and helpful. Kiawah Island is beautiful and this location is great. The kitchen had everything we needed and overall the home is in good shape. Some complaints... 1. Bugs are an issue that needs to be addressed. We found numerous coachroaches and other bugs (even a millipede). That tends to ruin a visit. The owner did have the bug guy spray while we were there but still found bugs after he sprayed. 2. It's a dog friendly house which is great but the cleaning crew should do a better job of getting the dog hair cleaned up. Especially in between the cushions on the couch and the couch pillows. 3. The Apple TV Remote could not be found and some TV remotes were missing batteries. All TVs could use an upgrade. 4. I would remove all the rugs in the home because they have all gotten fairly dingy. The hardwoods too beautiful to cover up anyway. If it wasn't for the bugs I would have given this place a 4 or 5. Should be a fairly easy fix for the next stay.

Owner's Response: Duly noted my regrets let me know if you come visit again would like to give you a free night or refund housekeeping charge whichever you prefer . Yes Palmetto bugs are part of the Island I agree they are no fun will keep a eye on them and have bug guy over weekly instead of every 2 weeks. The rugs are antique Kilums from around the world will have them looked at asap. Thanks for you input. Kindly, Yvette Kiawah Island Beach Cottage

The perfect Kiawah getaway

  • 5 of 5

In the last several years I’ve rented several places in the Charleston area (four times?) and on Kiawah Island through VRBO (three times). This one was the nicest by far, the cleanest, and Yvette was by far the most responsive property owner both before and during the rental. Don’t underestimate the importance of the latter point. I’ve had some rentals where it has taken a week (!) to hear back from the owner. In Yvette’s case it was a matter of minutes! There were none of the billing issues I’ve experienced with some other places.

The location, just a few minutes walk from the beach, is just perfect. It is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with a view of a pond (watch for visitors from gators and deer!). It is just a few minutes drive to the front gate of Kiawah and then on to the shopping center at Freshfields.

We arrived during Tropical Storm Bonnie, and were glad to have the space to spread out until the weather blew over and we could take advantage of all the outside opportunities (beach, cycling, kayaking, nature walks, and the kids enjoyed the playground at the nearby Heron Nature Center). We made use of the kitchen, better equipped in terms of appliances (Thermador!) and pans (All-clad!) than anywhere else I’ve rented. The beds were also very comfortable, which was great!

It was a shame we could only stay three nights, but when we next have the opportunity to visit Kiawah this cottage will be at the top of our list.

A wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Yvette's cottage! The cottage was perfect for our family and so well equipped.

The location is fantastic, as there are several beach access walkways right across the street.

Also, Yvette was so welcoming....she sent us a letter with wonderful information about the area and numbers we might need.

We enjoyed many of her recommendations for restaurants.

It was a delightful vacation!

p.s. the Master Bath is fabulous!!!!

We had a great time at the cottage. Just steps from the beach and a pleasant walk with our dog. Quiet, and peaceful setting with great kitchen and outside grill. Hope to visit the cottage again in the future.
