Cozy cottage with deck & shared pool - near the beach, golf, dining & shopping
Find a quiet retreat with all the comforts of home at this tree-lined cottage on Kiawah Island, where you'll be a few blocks' walk from the beautiful ocean beach! Take in the lush landscape that surrounds this home from the screened-in porch or the open deck, and enjoy close proximity to a community swimming pool, gorgeous bike paths, world-class golf courses, and all the fun that the island has to offer.
This 1,250-square-foot home is part of the Sparrow Pond Cottages, a gated community that sits within an easy walk or bike ride of the beach (quarter-mile south), golf, tennis, dining, and shopping on Kiawah Island. In addition to the beach, the island boasts five championship golf courses, tennis courts, and miles of scenic trails that you can enjoy on foot or by bike. Night Heron Park, with its pond, picnic areas, and nature center, is two miles east, and the shops and restaurants of Freshfields Village are just over two miles northwest.

A comfortable home for a family or a group of friends. Clean, with everything you need in the kitchen. Close to the beach. Will definitely come back and recommend.

We absolutely loved this condo, less than 10 minutes to the Beach or Fresh Fields. We loved the screened porch great for passing the time and reading.
Highly recommend this condo!

Outstanding location with the pool and beach closeby. Overall the best place house we have stayed at on the island. Excellent experience.
Anne M.Nov 2020
The condo was modern and clean. The kitchen was full stocked.
It was a 6minute walk to west beach or 2 min drive.
We saw wild deer and enjoyed the ocean breeze in the evenings.
Just make sure you have the most up to date code for the lock box (keys inside).

Sparrow pond rental 1031 was the perfect spot for our family of “6”. The home was very clean upon arrival and fully stocked with amenities . We rented bikes for the kids to get around and explore . The beach was a half mile away , and Freshfields village about a 2.25 mile bike ride . We loved our days at the beach and this was a perfect spot for us ! We would definitely return in the future , thank you !

We loved our time at this home. It has a cabin-like feel (I'd definitely call it more of a cabin than a cottage). I thought the kitchen was very well stocked and the beds and furnishings were comfortable (especially the cozy screened porch, where we spent a lot of time).
But, be prepared that if it's really warm summer months, the air conditioner has a hard time keeping up with the hottest part of the day. We had to have the air guys come out to check things out because in the middle of the day, the temp in the home would reach upwards of 76-78 degrees. This was with us taking extra precautions to keep all doors completely closed as soon as we stepped through. We would also try to keep the air cold at night to help with the daytime heating, but to no avail.
Also, if you are currently staying, the neighborhood pool, which is the only pool that you're allowed to use, is closed due to Covid-19. Though Vacasa tried to get us access to another pool that was up and running, they weren't able to, which was hard for our 2 girls who saw kids playing in the awesome resort pools but couldn't go to the pool themselves. Despite that, we ended up having a great time, as the beach is wonderful. But if you're coming to Kiawah and you don't book with the resort, you will need to contact the HOA for the neighborhood to check on the local pools.
We loved using Gator bike rentals and Island beach services while we were there too! Kiawah is absolutely stunning, and we overall really enjoyed our time at the sparrow pond rental.

Close to the beach and pool. Well appointed with what you need. No extras but just enough.
Charles L.Jun 2020
This cottage was clean, fully equipped, and great location to the beach. The screened porch was utilized to the by our whole family.
Highly recommend and hope to come back.
Only problem : The remote control for the living room. No big deal, used one from the bedroom.
Olga A.May 2020
We loved this rental. Looks and feels updated and had all the amenities you would want (though the knives desperately need to be replaced - I'm pretty sure we would have had more luck slicing a watermelon with a seashell instead). The outdoor shower was great to get rid of the beach sand. Close to the beach and a local pool. A few hiccups with our reservation (lockbox was empty when we arrived!) but otherwise we enjoyed our stay.
We are so happy that you had a great time, Olga! Thank you for bringing the knives to our attention. We are passing this along to our local staff!

Everything was great, we had a couple of very small suggestions. A few more basic toiletries (soap, shampoo, etc.) to get 4 people through a weeks stay, coffee filters for the coffee pot (or even better, a Kuerig single cup brewer in the unit), and include early hours checkout instructions in the printed material.
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world-class service.

Home unit had everything as advertised. There was substantial new construction nearby which was a minor inconvenience.

Clean and affordable.
DONNA S V.Jul 2016
Cottage was clean, cute and well stocked. Check in (late arrival lockbox) and check out easy and convenient. We also did bikes- one had a problem and the refund was provided - no questions asked!
Beautiful, clean, comfortable! Convenient to pool and ocean. Tons of bike trails and Nature center nearby. Located 2 miles away from a marina on Seabrook that had great restaurants also convenient to Charleston!
