Scenic view cottage w/ grill & Free Wifi - just a short walk to the beach & park

Walk 500 yards to the ocean and sand with this terrific Night Heron Cottage, and take advantage of the screened porch and back deck for plenty of peace and quiet during your stay. This amazing villa has a gas grill to put on some classic South Carolina cuisine or grill up your latest catch of the day. Inside, the home offers attractive floors, tasteful decor, and tons of space. The living area is the perfect place to host big family events, enjoy homemade popcorn during a movie night with the flatscreen cable TV, or just curl up with your favorite novel while everyone is down at the beach. You'll love exploring the community, especially when you challenge a friend to a match on the shared tennis court.

What’s nearby:
Be sure to tee off next door at Night Heron Park Golf Course, or at any of the other courses that pepper the island such as Cougar Point and Turtle Point Golf Courses, both less than three miles away. For great food, family-friendly activities, and carriage tours, be sure to check out historic downtown Charleston, only 25 miles away! You can bike or drive to Freshfields village, about four miles away, where you’ll find some great restaurants, boutiques, and grocery stores for some fresh local produce. Just a bit further down the road is Bohicket Marina (about 5 miles away) for boat cruises, dolphin tours, live music, wine tastings, and more! And if you're wanting that morning exercise, you have over 30 miles of walking and bike trails that cover almost all of Kiawah Island.

Pros: The house was spacious and very clean inside. The neighborhood was quiet. We needed some replacements (pans and sharp knives) and let the managers know. Maria called me back even though it was after hours and brought the items early next morning. Returning again within the hr. with a few more things we suggested. (She was awesome!)
Cons: The deck, stairs and screens definitely need to be fixed/replaced/repaired. There were holes, rot and black mold. The screen door would have been better not being there. It didn’t shut, was covered with spider webs, etc. The good news is Maria told us all of this was scheduled to be replaced in November. So the “cons” may change. The other thing we discovered was the smell of a wastewater treatment plant nearby. Because of the “cons” we felt the price was higher than it should have been.
Manager response:
We appreciate your review, Patricia. We are definitely working on setting up repairs with contractors so every aspect of this rental will be enjoyable. Thank you!

Loved this getaway! The place had everything we needed and then some. Super clean and easy to find. Will try to come back to this exact home!!!
Kelley H. Apr 2021
The unit was clean, updated, and perfectly convenient. The walk to the beach was very pleasant and the lockbox entry was super simple. I would say come prepared with cooking supplies - there were no basic staples like oil, salt, pepper, or foil. And the cookware was relatively lacking. Plenty of glassware, but no cutting boards, and very few (and small) pots and pans. There were two blenders for frozen drinks though! :) The playing cards provided by Vacasa were also a great touch. Would definitely stay again, but would come a little more prepared for cooking at home!
Manager response:
Hi Kelley, thank you for taking the time to share your review. We appreciate your feedback about the kitchen supplies and will review them with the local staff. We are available 24 hours a day so if guests are missing any items or have concerns we are happy to assist. We hope you'll visit again very soon.

We love the Night Heron cottages. They are very centrally located and not a condo in a building. This unit has been updated and is well appointed. We ordered bikes to be dropped off. The grill cooked our fish wonderfully. You can walk or bike to the beach. So much to do in Kiawah! Thanks!

This unit was adequate but needed maintenance

Nice home and near the beach. Enjoyed our weekend there.

We have previously rented the cottage at Night Heron when it was managed by a different company so we were expecting an easy and relaxing vacation. As usual we purchased food at the local grocery store before checking in. We left the food on the counter only to return to find it overrun with ants. Upon looking at the exterminating schedule we saw that the property hadn’t been sprayed monthly as is usually the case. All food needed to be thrown away. As it was the evening we couldn’t get through to the phone number Vacasa gives so I sent an email with no response even two days later. I again called the main number and the representative told me they get hundreds of emails so they didn’t get to mine. He finally put a report into the local office for an exterminator. He came but ain’t we were already moved in he apparently couldn’t do a thorough job as we still had ants the rest of the week. Again, we have stay at this property previously and never have had any problems. Furthermore, there was mold on the master bedroom shower curtain and several lights in the house were not working. Any of these issues should be solved easily but the local agent but with Vacasa it’s impossible to speak to anyone outside the 800 number. I am still waiting to hear from them regarding these issues. Buyer Beware.
Manager response:
Hi, Ursula! We appreciate your feedback and are so sorry to read you were not happier with our services. This home gets sprayed quarterly for pests since over-spraying was causing damage to the barrier island ecosystem. We are happy to spray with ant spray if there are excessive problems with them. The shower curtain and burnt out light bulbs have all been replaced. We are now leaving local phone numbers for guests to use during their stay so our guests can get faster assistance. Thank you!

Nice location to stay in. Close to Night Heron Park. Short walk to the beach. It has been updated but could use more of a personal touch. Basic furnishings.
