Perfect location and cozy cottage. Would stay here again!
Matthew P. Sep 2022
Great house and location. We are return guests and another great trip, however one major complaint was the refrigerator. It had a horrible smell that continued to be a problem the whole week. It was clearly cleaned before or arrival and vacasa came to detail clean it again at our request, however it didn't not take care of the horrible smell. I hope this can be investigated further for future guests. Otherwise, great place, good service and communication by vacasa.
Manager response:
Hi Matthew, thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback for second time around, we are glad to hear you enjoyed the home and the location itself. We sincerely apologize if the unpleasant odor did not get rid off during your stay. Since the housekeeping staff are aware of the issue, they acted promptly and checked further the issue on the refrigerator. They removed everything from the fridge and thoroughly wiped down all the shelves and drawers. We truly hope we can host you for a more comfortable stay in the future, thank you.

Clean, Kitchen was updated nicely with a new island lots of kitchen equipment too but the kitchen drawers were a bit rickety. Would definitely stay again. Really enjoyed our stay
Bill M. Jun 2022
This cottage is a short 5 minute walk to the beach and just 2-3 minutes to the community pool. It’s also just inside the main gate so Fresh Fields village is just a short hop. The screened in porch is very nice and the kitchen has been updated. And the outdoor shower is actually better than the one in the second bathroom. But the bedrooms and second bathroom are very, very small, and the mattresses are squeaky and need to be replaced. We weren’t unhappy with it and had a very nice time there - and will definitely be back
Manager response:
Thanks for staying with us, Bill. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We are very sorry to hear the beds did not suit your preferences. The mattresses are in good working order, but each guest has their own unique preference. We will be sure to inspect and address any squeaking coming from the beds. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to hosting you again soon!
Karen S. Jun 2022
House had a terrific location - pool and beautiful beach within an easy walk. Nice deck and screen porch. We had five adults during our stay - accommodations were a bit tight. Unit could use a refresh - bathrooms and kitchen were a bit dated.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Karen. We appreciate your feedback, and we have passed your comments along to our local manager so they are aware. We hope to host you again soon!
Stephanie L. May 2022
This beach house has a great location with a short walk to the beach. The beaches are immaculately clean and the community pool was great! The house it self was nice but the beds were very soft and uncomfortable. Also most of the dishes in the cupboards were dirty, chipped and did not match. Definitely need to upgrade the mattresses and dishes. I dont think the dishwasher worked well and the fridge froze all drinks on the top shelf. Overall, I would stay again but would love to see simple fixes to make this place great!
Manager response:
Stephanie, thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback, we are glad to hear you enjoyed the amenities and location of our home.

We are pleased to report that deep cleaning was completed, kitchen items were replaced, and the dishwasher and fridge are functioning properly. We will pass your comments regarding bed comfort to our management team for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you on a future stay!

Vacasa was very responsive. The house is a little dated with minor repairs needed. The location is great- less than 5 minute walk to the beach.
STEVEN C. Oct 2021
Close to beach, easy walk, wildlife view from back porch. Very clean and well equipped.
Matthew P. Sep 2021
Great location, we love sparrow pond and this condo was perfect for us! Very nice, well appointed, clean and cute. Perfect family getaway. Will definitely return.
Laura S. Sep 2021
Such a great experience for us, our two boys, and the grandparents! Plenty of space for them to run, enough amenities for us to make meals and manage ourselves, and still close enough to the water to run back and forth.
Lily W. Jun 2021
This is a very nice, clean and updated cottage. It's a quick 8 minute walk to the beach and the path was mostly shaded! The cottages are close together but are completely private and quiet. The living room furniture was very nice and the kitchen was well stocked. The beds were not very comfortable but that could just be a personal preference. Overall great stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Lily! We are delighted to know that you enjoyed this lovely cottage and the nearby beach access. We are also happy to inform our guests that the owners have replaced the mattresses less than a year ago, and we are sorry to hear that the bed comfort did not suit your preferences. We truly look forward to having the chance to host your next visit, thank you!

Great spot to relax and access all the beauty of Kiawah. A great little hidden community
Cynithia B. Nov 2020
The home was very clean upon arrival and suitable for a time of peaceful rest and revitalization. It was a close walk to the beach and beautiful walking trails. It was a great 6 days away....I wanted to extend my stay but when I checked it was already book!
William S. Oct 2020
The home is gorgeous. It's an easy walk to the beach and near a nature trail beside a lagoon.
myra p. Sep 2020
Nice place, looks better in pic than in person. We would recommend.
Susan K. Sep 2020
This cottage was perfect for a 3-generation family. We biked on the beach to watch dolphins, played in the ocean every day, biked to the Sanctuary for ice cream. It was well-equipped. Everybody wants to come back.
Carole W. Jul 2020
We stayed at 1054 Sparrow Pond Cottage for 2 weeks in July and found the cottage clean, light, well-maintained and well -provided. Everything from the televisions to the washer and dryer worked well, and the kitchen had enough utensils and dishware. The walk to the beach is minutes. We entertained our two young grandchildren there for some sleepovers. All in all it was as comfortable as a vacation rental should be!
William D. Jun 2020
The layout of the house is great, and the location is a short walk/bike to the beach. Great TV, WiFi and essentials were stocked. The house is pleasant and comfortable but needs some maintenance and could use some upgrades. Overall satisfactory stay!
Raisa C. Jun 2020
Great house, just as shown in the pictures, very close to the beach & pool. Would definitely go back again.
donna g. Apr 2020
Loved proximity to beach and freshfields-loved the outdoor shower and good smart tvs...could use new mattresses.
Kevin R. Mar 2020
This house was in good condition and in a nice location. We could really to the beach in about 10 minutes. Our stay was comfortable and everything was in working order.
It is in a gated, guarded location so you had to always have your parking permit when entering.
When we arrived we only had about half of the towels and wash cloths we needed for 6 people but a quick call resulted in extras being promptly delivered to us. However, we later noticed that there was no towels, cloths or detergent to wash. dishes.
We could potentially stay here again if in the area but might choose to explore other areas to experience them.
Michael S. Dec 2019
Spacious well appointed in a great location!
Cheryl D. Oct 2019
Easy walk to the beach. This home had everything we needed for a relaxing week on Kiawah Island.
Maria O. Sep 2019
The cottage was a great layout with comfy furniture.
Jo K. Jul 2019
Loved screened porch, well equipped kitchen,convenient to beach & neighborhood pool, great master bath shower.
Svetoslav M. Jun 2019
Fit our family great!
Barbie S. Apr 2019
We booked this adorable home for a staycation for our small family. We had 4 adults and 1 child and this home was perfect!
It was bright and beautifully decorated. The weather was fairly cold but we ventured to the beach access that was a 5 minute walk away. The pool was closed for the season but looked nice and was close by as well. The home was clean and well appointed with everything we needed. We will likely rebook another stay.
Julie V. Mar 2019
Perfect for 6 of us. Close to the beach and very private.
Carl M. Jul 2018
The location was good, but the cottage needs a deep cleaning and the kitchen supplies are poor quality even by vacation rental standards. We did not find the cottage to be consistent with previous reviews.
Manager response:
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review of your stay. The owners of this property strive to be consistent in making assessments of the home in between guests and making sure it is held to a high standard in all aspects. We hope in the future if you have any concerns during your stay that you will contact us so we can address them accordingly. Thank you!
Irene K. Apr 2017
Our family of four enjoyed our stay, riding bikes around the resort, on the beach and to Night Heron Park. The management and staff quickly responded to a couple of requests we made. The home could use a little TLC and updating but was comfortable for us. We would definitely return.
Anonymous . Mar 2017
Plenty of space, towels, paper supplies, utensils, and dishes for family of four for a week. Smooth transaction with Beachwalker Rentals. Convenient enough location to the closest boardwalk. Only real complaint is sheets in guest bedroom seemed to have been made up without through cleaning(had some grit and hair on them) but thankfully washer/dryer in unit worked well. Also, TVs in 2 bedrooms were small & in awkward positions for watching at night. Heating worked fine with unseasonably cold weather, just wish we'd had no need of it for spring break at the beach!
Lisa D. Oct 2016
We loved our stay at 1054 Sparrow Pond! The property was perfect and one of the best places we ever stayed! The house was close to the beach and pool. We liked that we passed the pool on the way to and from the ocean which was an easy walk from the property. The grill on the deck came in super handy as well as the screened in porch. The house was clean and had a nice open layout. We rented bikes from Alligator Bike Rental and rode to the Sanctuary one day. We love going to Fischers Sports Pub for drinks and to watch football. Freshfields was good for shopping for souvenirs and groceries of course.We love Kiawah and our stay at Sparrow Pond!
Nancy W. Jul 2016
This was our 2nd year at Kiawah booking with Beachwalker and we loved it. The cottage was well taken care of and clean. The only problem was the height of the vanity in the master bath. It was too high for my five foot 2 inch height. We stayed at Inlet Cove last year and like the cottage floor plan better but liked the Sparrow Pond location better. I have recommended the property to several friends. We like the beach and bike rentals. The activities are too many for just a week. My grandson enjoyed one of the activities at Night Heron Park. Freshfields Village is a must visit place. There was something for every member of our family to enjoy. We plan to come back to Kiawah for many more years. Thank you Beachwalker for a great stay.
Jason B. Aug 2015
The house was great. Much better finishes, dishware, and games than the other sparrow pond house we rented last year. There is some minor TLC that I told the people at Beachwalker about, but it is mostly just wear and tear, as it is the end of the season. The grill was great and had a full propane tank. Lots of nice boardgames, etc. Will very likely rent this same house again next year.

We had a very good vacation with our on laws who came from Italy. Check-in and apartment conditions were great. Mobile application was very useful."
