Renovated cottage w/ deck & screened porch - walk 150 yards to the beach!

Beach-goers will feel right at home at this three-bedroom Kiawah Island cottage, a beautifully renovated property with a private deck, a screened-in porch for balmy evenings, and wonderful access to the beach and Night Heron Park! A row of palmettos, sea oats and rolling sand dunes are all that separate the Oceanwood Cottages from the Atlantic.

This 1,234-square-foot home sits just outside West Beach Village, 150 yards up the road from a beach access point. Take morning walks amid palmettos and dunes to catch the sunrise on the sand, and bring along your bikes to explore the 30 miles of biking trails and nature trails and the many beauties of Night Heron Park.

Renovated from top to bottom in 2012, this air-conditioned cottage offers hardwood floors, free WiFi, new furnishings, and an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher). Prepare lunch on the gas grill between trips to the beach, rinse off in the enclosed outdoor shower (with hot water) before dinner, and sit down to eat on the deck or the screened porch. This non-smoking vacation rental property includes parking, 24-hour security in a gated community, central air conditioning, internet, a DVD player, a washer and dryer, linens and bath towels, a departure housekeeping service and a starter supply of paper products and detergents. Back inside, you can spend the evening watching Netflix on one of two cable TVs (guests must have their own Netflix account). There is parking for 2 cars.

Location, location , location !, An easy walk to the beach, short drive to the shopping and grocery stores. A great place to stay for families young and old!
Patricia S. Oct 2021
Great location for walking to beach, biking and walking
Jennifer M. Jul 2021
Loved the location but the cleanliness of the home was not up to par for a Kiawah stay. When we moved some furniture to look for a dropped item the amount of dust and food under the sofas was disturbing. The kitchen is not equipped with all the amenities. The pots and pans need updating along with the utensils and the baking dishes and sheet pans.
Other than that it is an ideal spot for your next vacation. Hopefully these things can be rectified before our next stay in August.
Manager response:
Hello Jennifer, thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and apologize that you encountered some cleanliness issues. Please know that this is not commonplace. We look forward to your next stay!

My family just stayed here for a little getaway and we have the best time! The house was perfect and in the best location. We couldn’t have enjoyed it more!
Jamar B. Sep 2020
This was a lovely cottage. It was nicely decorated, spacious, and had all of the appropriate amenities (except basics household products like trash bags, dish soap, and paper towels). Its location to the beach could not be beaten. It was the perfect size for a couple but would also very comfortably fit a family of 6 or so. The only ding we have about our stay is that the housekeeping needed a lift. We were made to believe by references to “COVID cleaning” that this rental would be spotless. It was not. We found dirty pots and pans stored away in the cabinets and the shower curtain in the guest bathroom had visible mold and mildew. These are really easy fixes, and issues that put a slight damper on an otherwise wonderful experience.
Manager response:
We are so sorry the home was not as clean as it should have been, Jamar. Please feel free to reach out so we can correct these matters. We take cleanliness matters very seriously and will always do our best to make it right. Thank you!

Loved the location. The kitchen was very nice but not well appointment with kitchen equipment, for example, bowls, platters, utensils. Needed a lot more cleaning supplies, TP, dish soap, garbage bags. Linens were old and shabby.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! We are glad you enjoyed the home. We apologize for any miscommunication regarding paper and cleaning products. We do provide starter packs of paper products and detergents, and anything required beyond what is provided is the responsibility of the guests. We appreciate your feedback, and we hope to host you for a more enjoyable stay in the future!

House was great just needs new TV in the living room as well updated kitchen utensils.
Allen C. Oct 2019
With Wife and 3 young kids this place was the perfect fit. 1/2 a block to the beach, well equipped kitchen, open floor plan, screened porch and outdoor deck space. We will absolutely book again for our next long weekend.

Close to the beach!
Viktoriya O. Sep 2019
We loved the outdoor shower and the deck, also the setup of the house was really convenient. And the walk to the beach was not far at all.
There’s not anything to complain about, but it you are going to make improvements- maybe an electric teapot (not a kettle) and a few beds were a little squeaky- no big deal!
Martha M. Jun 2019
The house is 300 steps from the beach! It is opened and relaxing. The kitchen is fully equipped for a family. Quiet neighborhood. Perfectly
Chandra P. Mar 2019
Absolutely loved staying in the Kiawah community. The home was beautiful, upgraded, close access to beach, and accommodated the whole group even with younger kids. We enjoyed having girl time with our children but will definitely be returning with our families, respectively. The younger kids enjoyed our morning beach walks and finding whole sea shells. The only issue was the towns accommodations. Most restaurants closed by 9 and could not accommodate our group; however, we drove into Folly for dinner and enjoyed ourselves tremendously.

This is the third or fourth time we've stayed in this house - first time since managed by Vacasa. The house is very comfortable and well-equipped. One thing we wish for is more privacy with blinds or curtains to cover the large glass sliding door at the dining area; the house next door was occupied, and they could see everything in the dining area. Before check-in, we were told the key would be under the mat, and we were not given the lockbox code. When we arrived after dark, the keys were not under the mat; we had to call Portland, and fortunately they had the code. We want to give kudos to MaryBeth and Emily at the local Vacasa office. MaryBeth promptly saw that we had blankets for upcoming cold nights. We had a package delivered to the local office, and Emily was very diligent in tracking it down for us. We hope to stay here again next year.

The house was well appointed, very clean and a perfect size for our family. Super close to the beach too!
Stephen B. Aug 2018
We love staying in Oceanwoods, and this location on Sea Lavendar is fantastic - a short walk to the beach, easy bike ride to town center, the tennis center, and the Sanctuary. The house has been fairly recently redone and is fairly bright and nicely furnished. Nice big round table on the screen porch that can easily six six, and a nice big dining table. The kitchen has a nice gas range, and a nice frig/freezer with in the door ice and water, and a reasonable amount of cookware. The house seems fairly well cared for, although it could have used a thoroughly cleaning before our arrival - fair amount of sand on the floors, the window blinds were pretty dusty, there were a number of light bulbs out, and the towel bar in the "hall" bath was broken. All minor problems, and the good far outweighed the bad - we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Nancy W. Jul 2018
So convenient to the beach! Updated and spacious. Would stay again.
Carolyn C. Nov 2017

Fred B. Apr 2017
This was the best vacation rental we have ever found. The location was great, the facility was great, and the office staff were friendly and very helpful.
Jennifer S. Mar 2017
We have stayed in this house previously. We love this house and we always love staying here.

An excellent experience all round. When I made the reservation, Beachwalker staff were helpful and courteous. When we arrived at the cottage, all was in order. The cottage was clean, spacious and nicely updated. Plenty of hot water and very comfortable accommodations. So glad we chose this place for our three-day getaway!

Confortable, clean, well furnished house near the beach. High quality appliances and perhaps the best shower head ever! Easy walk to the Nature Center, East beach and the Sanctuary Hotel. We enjoyed every minute.
Beverly F. Dec 2015
We stayed here with our son and his family for the Thanksgiving holiday. The house was pleasant, with an open floor plan that made it perfect for having several different things going on at once. The location is great, the house was clean with a kitchen that was generally well supplied for preparation of a Thanksgiving feast. The staff at Beachwalker Rentals were very organized, professional, and personable. We would definitely come back.
Rhonda C. Oct 2015
We loved our stay in this Oceanwoods cottage. It was so clean, comfortable and so close to this beach. We will definitely stay here again.
