Tranquil Lagoon Escape – Renovated Greenslake Cottage with Community Pool

This Greenslake cottage is truly the perfect escape! It is bright inside, while the lagoon view begets a tranquil getaway. The stylish kitchen has a clean, crisp design with new cabinets and granite countertops, and an eating area perfect for family gathering. The deck overlooking the lagoon has a grill to complete this inviting cottage. The king master has a new mattress (April 2015), and the 2nd bedroom has twin beds to accommodate any family scenario. Be sure to enjoy your morning coffee or evening beverage on the cozy screened porch while you gaze on beautiful lagoon backdrop. Free wifi.

NO PETS & NO SMOKING. Thank you.

All Greenslake Cottages are situated in a quiet, tucked away location in the West Beach Village, and in close proximity to many of Kiawah’s most treasured sights and activities. They provide a larger floor plan than other 2 bedroom villas on the island, and are single story, so there are no units above or below them.

• Short walking distance to Kiawah beaches.

• Full access to the Greenslake community pool with separate baby pool. Right on the

way to the beach.

• Easy access to bike and walking paths.

• Nearby activities for all ages, including golf, tennis, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding,

fishing, and much more.

• Bike, kayak and other rentals available.

• Fresh Fields Village (less than 3 miles).

• Nature watching - Dolphins, gators, waterfowl and other birds.

• Night Heron Park offers fun family activities for day and evenings.

• For a fee, Kiawah Island Resort offers golf, tennis and other resort activities to non-

resort guests, with the exception of their pools and fitness facilities.

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

Beatiful cottage with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful remodeled open main area, screened porch, gas grill and short bike ride to the beach - everything we wanted! Extra surprise - it was stocked with a spice rack (we used up Italian Seasoning, btw), dish soap and laundry detergent - very useful. We donated a nonstick skillet. Baking sheet is needed, but someone had left some disposable ones, so we were fine. Highlight of the trip - we finally got to see the dolphins strand feed (west end of island at low tide) - sooo cool!

Great for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 1221 Greenslake Cottage over Labor Day weekend, and found the cottage to be clean and accommodating. Our kids enjoyed taking the trails on the short walk to the beach, as well as around the island. The cottage surroundings were quiet and it felt very private, and one morning, we even watched two deer feeding by the lagoon as we enjoyed coffee and croissants on the screened porch. The cottage is cozy, but spacious enough to provide furnishings for lounging and storing our belongings. We made complete meals "at home" and found the kitchen to be well-stocked for cooking and serving. We also appreciated the spacious pantry. The beds and linens were in notably good condition and were comfortable.

Cute decor but some issues with cleanliness and kitchen

  • 2 of 5

We liked the location and decor of this home. At first glance, everything appeared comfortable and well cared for. After being there 1 day, we noticed multiple issues. The kitchen is poorly stocked. What they do have is poor quality and has taken a beating. Additionally, we used the dryer the first day to dry some towels. The entire home heated up to over 80 degrees, despite the ac being set at 68. There were also water spots and what looked like fresh leaks on the ceiling in a couple of places. There were some stains on the throw pillows. All of these issues could be easily resolved...they just need some attention.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your feedback. We wish you had expressed these concerns during your stay as most would have easily been addressed during your vacation. The HVAC is serviced twice annually and it is running properly. We restocked the kitchen since your stay, and are responsive to issues as they are reported. Please read the other reviews of this cottage for a more balanced perspective.

Clean. Well laid out. Responsive to needs of renters. Quiet street. Good location.

  • 4 of 5

Fabulous location, short walk or bike ride to the beach. Clean. Nice kitchen appliances. The kitchen looked newly remodeled with nice counter tops, sink, and backsplash. Ice maker and water in the fridge - yeah! Loved the screened in porch with the adorable ceiling fan. However, if you have a family and can't afford to eat out nightly or just don't care to, the kitchen is not well equipped. Limited pots and pans, (and that was for easy meals like tacos and sautéed veggies and pasta) not a ton of usable utensils - cereal with a soup spoon most mornings. The floors have nice laminate - easy to keep clean with a broom. We were missing a broom and Susie had one sent over quickly. That was great. The floors have some sunken spots that the owners plan on fixing this year but it can be disconcerting to walk and sink a bit. Overall, it was great for our week other than the lack of pots and pans and silverware and getting used to the soft spots on the floor. I would stay here again as it was a nice property and very convenient!

Outstanding rental property for 2 adults and 2 kids. Six would be tight.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time on the island and the condo made it even better. Not far from beach, walkable but bikes made it much easier travels to beach and pool. Condo was clean and was well equipped with all that one needs to make home cooked meals. Five minute drive to Freshfields Market. Property manager was available 24-7 and returned emails/text within 10-15 minutes.

Nice cottage but not clean enough or close to beach

  • 3 of 5

Kiawah is a very beautiful relaxing island. There didn't appear to be much to do but as we learned about the island we found more places to explore. It would be nice if there was more info available about the island to the guests. A Map with locations of restaurants, shopping, ice cream, marina, etc. our cottage was the right size for our family but the surrounding grounds could have been cleaner. The cleaning crew did a good job on the inside but the outside deck and porches were full of webs and debrit that just needed to be swept away... Something we could have done if the cottage had a broom!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you found the inside of the cottage clean and that you had a good time exploring Kiawah. We try to email all upcoming renters a lot of information, including a 50+ page activity guide. Sorry that you did not receive this information. We have replaced the broom. Unfortunately, there were 3 Saturdays in a row with a rain storm so our handyman could not blow off the decks and porch prior to your vacation. We have found that most renters don't want to be disturbed during their vacation to have him come back. We are sorry the cottage's decks needed to be cleaned. We expect future renters not to have this problem.
