This cottage is particularly well-suited to large and extended families, having a 2nd story loft with three twin beds, in addition to the two bedrooms and baths on the main floor. It boasts flat screen TVs in the living room and both main bedrooms, as well as new carpet in 2015. The main living area has nice hardwood floors, is very clean and comfortable, and has everything you’ll need to get perfect vacation underway. Internet/WIFI enabled.

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

We liked the cottage and loved the location

  • 4 of 5

We found the cottage to be adequate for our family's size and needs. Everyone loved the quiet cul-de-sac location and lagoon view. Convenient access to the pool, beach and Straw Market. We've stayed on Governor's Dr. and in Ocean Green and the drive to Freshfields is longer than you'd think. This location was very convenient, so we spent more time doing fun stuff instead of being in the car all the time. The kids loved riding their bikes in the neighborhood, and the dog was very happy and comfortable as well. Only negatives: the kitchen was under stocked for any real cooking, we saw lots of nasty spiders in the bedrooms, and the cottage may have been empty the week prior, as it did not seem to have been freshly cleaned. It was certainly neat and in good order, but there was mold/mildew in the bathrooms and the cottage had a strong musty smell upon arrival. We had a small issue with the gas grill, which Susie quickly resolved. The handyman arrived and also corrected an issue with the toilet in the master being loose. Response time was very good! The rental process was also a breeze and Susie was very easy to work with. We would definitely consider staying in this location again.

The lagoon view was great.

  • 5 of 5

The porch was very close to the lagoon and we had great bird, fish and gator viewing opportunities. We had marvelous weather during our week at the cottage. Susie was great with answering any questions we had.

Cozy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The property was perfect for our vacation. The size was wonderful for our family of six and the house had all the amenities we needed, from wifi and tv to cookware and extra blankets. The rooms were nicely and comfortably decorated and everything was clean and in fine working order. The location was excellent, with a great view of the lagoon from the back porch and only a five-minute walk to the beach. We would highly recommend it!

Fabulous Girls' Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I love Kiawah and go a lot! This has been one of my favorite units so far! We love the Greenslake Cottages but this one is slightly larger because of the third bedroom upstairs. Though the bedroom is smaller, it provides additional space for girls or for kids! (I can't wait to come back this summer to bring a group of teenagers). Also, it has one of the prettiest views of the lagoon that I have seen. We loved the decor - cozy and warm. The den and screened porch were perfect for relaxing after our day of shopping at Freshfields and evenings dining out. Can't wait to come back!

Our Favorite Place

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to this wonderful cottage on a yearly basis since 2006. We've been so happy with it in the past, that this year we extended our usual monthly stay to two months. We were so glad we did. Not only did we escape a horrible New England winter, but we were able to enjoy all the updates and improvements made to the cottage. It's private and secluded, yet convenient to anywhere we want to go ... especially the beach! The hardwood floors are in great shape, and the carpeting in the bedrooms is new, as are most of the kitchen appliances. We love sitting on the deck or screened porch and watching all the wildlife in the lagoon. It's a never-ending show. With two bedrooms and an upstairs loft, there's plenty of room for visitors. We're already looking forward to our return in 2016.

Very disappointed!!

  • 1 of 5

Our first impression was of the large ants on the ceiling in the loft. It went downhill from there during the week. There was lots of hair on the shower wall; the sofas were covered with animal hair; the dining table had animal hair on it; when I turned the stove on, the burners didn't work. Found they were disconnected under the stove top; ants found their way to the kitchen; found huge spider in bathroom sink; the floors were uneven causing doors not to stay closed or open in one bedroom. On the plus side, the A/C worked great; the cottage is secluded; there's ample parking at the Straw Market to walk to the beach. Susie, the manager, was pleasant and offered to have the cottage cleaned and sprayed for bugs, but all of this should have been done prior to our visit. She also offered to move us to another cottage, but after you get all you stuff unloaded and unpacked, we decided not to go through that hassle. If you want an adventure, this cottage is the one you're looking for.

Owner's Response: We were sorry to hear about this unpleasant experience. Other renters who have stayed in this cottage both before and after this party had positive feedback, which is consistent with other reviews throughout the three-plus years we have managed this property. As is our usual practice, we did our best to quickly resolve any and all issues: 1) we offered to send another cleaning crew out immediately to re-clean the cottage 2) send the exterminator out for an extra service call, and/or to 3) move the renters to another nearby cottage. Unfortunately, the renter refused each offer to address their concerns. This was not a typical situation and we continue our pledge to provide a pleasant vacation experience to everyone that stays in this cottage.
