Guest Reviews

Loved the Beach Cottage! The property managers thought of everything! by J. Evans 24 Oct 2018
Loved Kiawah Island and our stay at the Beach Cottage! Clean and decorated beautifully. Would love to stay here again and again.
Wonderful!! by L. Hancock 30 Aug 2018
We loved staying here! It’s a wonderful place to get away! You’re truly only steps away from the beach and the owners have thought of everything!
Perfect long weekend getaway by K. Ransome 24 Aug 2018
"I cannot say enough great things about our stay on Kiawah! The Beach Cottage at Mariners Watch was the perfect long weekend getaway for me and my husband. Jeanette and Shawn had attended to every detail! It was decorated beautifully and was stocked with all of the kitchen gadgets we needed and there was even fresh flowers on the table when we arrived! We loved having breakfast on the screened porch and watching the birds, deer and other wildlife. It was a quick walk to the beach and not having to pack a cooler, beach towels or a beach bag was a huge bonus. The bed and sheets were so comfortable and a welcome respite after a long day on our bikes. With the communication and helpful videos, any questions we might have had were answered before we even asked them. It was so convenient to be able to rent bikes and anything else we needed directly through them. It was the easiest, most pleasant rental experience I have ever had. It was our first visit to Kiawah and when we return, we will definitely stay in a Kiawah Island Getaways property. Thank you Jeanette and Shawn!"
Luxurious and Immaculately Clean by H. Bowling-Clark 06 Aug 2018
"I’ve been visiting Kiawah Island since the 80s, and the properties at Kiawah Island Getaways are by far the nicest. Not only are they immaculately clean, they feel luxurious with high quality beds and lines, chic decor, and every detail you could think of. I’ve stayed on their properties on 3 separate occasions, and I can’t wait to go back."
With an easy walk to the beach and great golf courses it was perfect for us. by L. Bouknight 15 Jun 2018
"The detail that came with the property made the stay so nice- beach towels provided, laundry detergent and coffee filters. The little extra things you don’t want to have to pack. It’s well managed and clean!"
Ready for my Next Vacation! by M. Doan 12 Jun 2018
"The Beach Cottage was excellent for had everything you can imagine for a vacation. This made my trip so much easier to plan for. We were in walking distance from the ocean, restaurants were right down the road, & the market was as well. The villa was well-groomed and looked wonderful. I am so ready for my next vacation."
Absolute Perfection by K. Reese 01 Jun 2018
"We absolutely LOVED our stay in the beach cottage. We have traveled extensively and have very high standards regarding where we choose to stay. I can honestly say that this cottage was the most immaculate place we have ever stayed. Seriously, the place was spotless!! I couldn’t get over it!

No detail was spared when this cottage was remodeled - interior design is gorgeous, bedding and towels are luxurious and soft, kitchen is so well-stocked and so nicely laid out. Space utilization was excellent.

We’ve been coming to Kiawah for 28 years and this is definitely one of the best places we have ever stayed. Location is perfect - right across from the beach and convenient to the main entrance and Freshfields.

Loved the screen in porch and relaxed often on it, while watching the deer and wildlife down below.

Lastly, although we encountered zero problems , during the booking process, Jeanette was so kind and responsive - and super attentive to our needs and questions.

Love, love, looooooved it! ❤️"
Amazing Romantic Getaway by T. Hennessey 25 May 2018
"My boyfriend and I had a fabulous stay at the cottage. It was well equipped, clean, modern, and so close to everything."
Heavenly stay at the Beach Cottage by M. Makarewicz 24 Mar 2018
"This was our first visit to Kiawah Island and our time spent there was wonderful! The Beach Cottage is perfect in every way. Shawn and Jeanette haven taken care of just about everything you will need during your stay. The cottage is beautifully decorated, spotless, and so comfortable. The sheets on the bed are so soft, I had to purchase a set for my home! We loved sitting on the screened in porch listening to the birds and enjoying a cup of coffee. You have the best of both worlds, nature in your backyard and ocean across the walkway. Walks on the beach, biking the island, shopping at Freshfields, spa day, golf, fabulous restaurants, day trips...take me back! Shawn and Jeanette were wonderful to work with. Their response time was quick and they were so helpful with answering our questions. If you are considering staying at the beach cottage, you will not be disappointed! Thank you for a memorable stay."
Charming cottage-like apartment by J. Warren 18 Mar 2017
"This adorable apartment is so close to the beach we could hear the ocean. The location is great -- just a few steps to the beach out the front door and a wonderful woodsy lagoon view from the screen porch at the back. The decor impeccable, and the kitchen, although compact, is fully equipped. Very comfortable and cozy, so just right for a single or a couple. I will definitely come back to this place!"
Perfect for our Honeymoon by B. Bennett 01 Jan 2017
"The villa kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The utensils, pots and pans, dishes, etc. were top quality. Everything was neat and tidy and easy to find. In fact, the whole villa was stocked with all we needed. The Beach Cottage couldn't have been any more perfect for our honeymoon. The villa was beautiful and clean. When we first walked through the door we were greeted with a lovely, cozy scent that made it feel so personal. It wasn't just another condo. It felt like it was perfectly set up for us - soaps, toilet tissue, shampoo, laundry detergent packs, towels and wash cloths. That was very convenient. Shawn and Jeanette had instructions throughout out the villa that answered any questions we had. The bed was certainly luxurious. It was like sleeping on clouds! The pillows were comfy too and the bedding was superb. We were very impressed. My wife had received emails from Jeanette with suggestions and recommendations for sights to see and restaurants to visit. There is a large information binder as well with lots of information on Kiawah as well as Charleston. We visited some of the restaurants mentioned. Our favorite meal though was at the Lowcountry Bistro in Charleston. The whole trip was like a dream. It was more than we could have imagined. The beach was absolutely gorgeous. It was huge and wide even at high tide. The beach was literally a two minute walk away. The whole island is gorgeous and fun to ride bikes around to see up close. You will not regret visting Kiawah and you'll love The Beach Cottage."
The Beach Cottage by D. Woody 01 Aug 2016
"This was my first time to rent a condo on Kiawah and my experience was extremely impressive. The property managers were excellent to work with and made the check-in experience very easy, especially if you arrive late in the evening. The accommodations were exactly as pictured on the website and extremely clean. The beach is a very short distance and the view of the lagoon from the screened porch was idyllic....I would definitely recommend and will return to the Beach Cottage."
Second Stay at the Beach Cottage by J. Birdwell 27 Jun 2016
"This was our second stay at the Beach Cottage. It is very convenient to the beach. The condo is well-equipped for whatever you require during your stay. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The owners are extremely nice and excellent communicators. We will be back."

Charming and Inviting, the PERFECT Romantic Beach-Escape, 2-Min. Walk to Beach! by S. McWilliams 11 Jun 2016
Totally awesome from the minute you walk in the door. Fresh flowers on the table, very clean and well decorated. Many items are provided for you which makes packing so much easier, and assistance with securing umbrellas, chairs, and bikes is extremely helpful. Also, you do not have to stop somewhere and check in. You have the car pass and can drive directly to the unit. I love the fact that it is SO close to the beach, and this particular beach crossing has a hose for your bikes! Jeanette and Shawn always respond quickly to questions or needs. Our air conditioning went out, but they had it fixed within a few hours. This was our third time at the Beach Cottage, and we will continue to rent from Shawn and Jeanette because they truly care about you enjoying your stay and want their places to be above and beyond!!
A Beach Cottage to Remember by K. Bell 20 May 2016
"The Beach Cottage was one of the nicest villas that we've ever rented. It is very nicely decorated and appointed with furnishings that many other places don't provide such as beach towels, kitchen supplies (including plastic wrap, baggies, twist ties, calculator, pens). The comfort level is a 10. The on-line listing accurately portrays and describes the villa. The villa was spotless and well-maintained. Jeanette promptly brought over requested supplemental supplies. The villa is perfect quiet get-away for a couple. We choose to eat in the first night so we could relax and enjoy the view of the trees and lagoon from the screened-in-porch. There are excellent local restaurants within 25 minutes, i.e., Chez Fish, Fat Hen, Wild Olive. The beach is fantastic--wide and open during low tide and not crowded while we were there (before Memorial Day weekend) and only minutes away via boardwalk. I added many steps to my FitBit count walking the beach and trails. The only items we missed having were a ceiling fan in the bedroom and a sprayer in the kitchen sink, however, neither is a deterrent to staying there again."
Excellent Value by D. Taylor 01 May 2016
"This was a return visit and we found Kiawah every bit as awesome as our previous visit, with so much to do and see. We enjoyed riding our bikes on the beach and relaxing in our condo. Shawn and Jeanette have done a wonderful job."
Kiawah....Our Dream Vacation Spot! by C. Carlsen 23 May 2015
"Kiawah....Our Dream Vacation Spot!
Our first visit to Kiawah was 19 years ago. It was approx. 4 years after that when we met Shawn and Jeanette and had the opportunity to see The Tree Tops and knew immediately that our future bookings at Kiawah would be through them. Shawn and Jeanette are not just owners/managers, but they are very talented in remodeling, putting in high class touches, and taking care of the vacationing needs of their renters. The quality of their furnishings, dishes, linens, and personal touches to provide renters with beach towels, beach bag, frozen mugs in the freezer, washer/dryer with detergent and dryer anti static towels, speaks to their need to provide renters a comfortable, homey, and well furnished villa to make your visit one you'll not forget. Since we started renting with Shawn and Jeanette, we haven't chosen to rent from anyone else. Not only do they provide outstanding/excellent provisions, but they are also just phone call away from any questions or concerns. They have and will/and have responded quickly to make sure your stay is a memorable one. We have been in five of their villas, and spent approx. twenty-plus weeks in total renting from them. We are already planning two weeks for next year, and hopefully four for the following summer. Very clean, great quality furnishings throughout, and personal details for a well thought out and inviting atmosphere is why we keep going back. As you can probably tell, we can say enough about how much we appreciate staying at villas provided by Shawn and Jeanette to enjoy our favorite vacation spot: Kiawah Island. By the way, the enclosed porch at the Beach Cottage is awesome! We saw several deer, birds, and even alligators. Just the best!"
My wife and I desperately needed a week's rest and found our spot about a 90 second walk from the ocean in a villa condo on Mariner's Watch. by J. Deacon 21 Mar 2015
"My wife and I desperately needed a week's rest and found our spot about a 90 second walk from the ocean in a villa condo on Mariner's Watch. The beach was beautiful - miles to either cycle or walk on and the sunrises over the ocean were spectacle, so good I filmed one on my iPhone to re-visit whenever 'wave therapy' is needed. With a kitchen, living room, screened in sitting area and a cozy bedroom, it was perfect. We split the week between living at the ocean and trekking into Charleston which is truly a gem of a city."
The Beach Cottage was beautifully and comfortably furnished with every thoughtful amenity included, from cooking implements to board games. by H. Donough 05 Nov 2014
"The Beach Cottage was beautifully and comfortably furnished with every thoughtful amenity included, from cooking implements to board games. Bikes and beach chairs were easy to rent. The cottage included every item for convenience; beach towels, rain umbrella, a generous supply of laundry detergent, dish washing detergent and dish detergent. There was nothing extra that we needed to pack in our carry-ons. Especially pleasant was the "commute" to the beach which consisted of walking across the parking lot. We saw pods of frolicking dolphins and diving pelicans while reading novels in our beach chairs. We tried the suggested pecan-crusted grouper at Chez Fish, half price burgers at King Street Grille, had an elegant dining experience at the Sanctuary, and even enjoyed the benefit of listening to some fabulous Afro/Cuban jazz at the weekend jazz festival. Traveling into Charleston for a carriage tour was easy and educational. The nearby Freshfields shopping area included everything a visitor might need, including an Urgent Care Medical office."
Clean and comfortable with a screened porch and washer/dryer. by S. Evans 02 Aug 2014
"Clean and comfortable with a screened porch and washer/dryer. Even smelled good when we first walked in. Easy walk to the beach. Very nice sheets and towels were provided which was appreciated because we flew to SC. Property managers are extremely accommodating -they provided information about renting bikes and beach chairs, as well as lots of information about the island and Charleston. We also received reminder emails as our rental week got closer. We even got a great rate by using their rental car link. Would definitely stay here again."
The Beach Cottage is a perfect villa for a couple visiting Kiawah Island to enjoy the beach, the golf, the beautiful natural surroundings, and bike riding on the 30 miles of bike trails. by J. Ginman 10 Aug 2013
"The Beach Cottage is a perfect villa for a couple visiting Kiawah Island to enjoy the beach, the golf, the beautiful natural surroundings, and bike riding on the 30 miles of bike trails. The cottage is just across the street from the beach, a short walk, so you can go back and forth with ease, and convenient to several golf courses. The Beach Cottage is outfitted with everything you would need for two people in the kitchen, in the bath, and supplied with 2 beach towels, coolers, and other items. There is a screened porch to enjoy a cool vista from the chairs overlooking the natural vegetation of palms and oaks behind the cottage, refreshing after a hot beach day! The Beach Cottage décor is comfortable, casual, stylish, updated, immaculate and just perfect! You can watch TV on the flat screen, relax on the sofa, dine at the table for four, read on the screened porch, and sleep peacefully in the queen bedroom. The vaulted ceiling in the main room makes the cozy cottage feel more expansive. The Beach Cottage is on the second floor of two floors, and was a very quiet location. There is space for one small child (sofabed). The arrangements to stay at this property are very easy to accomplish and the property managers delightful to work with. Shopping is convenient to the villa at Freshfields Village, about four miles away, just off the island. Visiting Charleston, the friendliest city in America, is about 35 minutes away. Five stars for the Beach Cottage!"
We were looking for a one bedroom on Kiawah and read the reviews of the Beach Cottage. by M. Coulis 18 May 2013
"We were looking for a one bedroom on Kiawah and read the reviews of the Beach Cottage. It exceeded all our expectations. The space was spotless and all the things you need for a comfortable stay is waiting for you. Loved having the kitchen for the convenience of not having to go out for every meal. Make sure to rent bkes and beach chairs in advance so they are there waiting for you. Enjoyed day trips to Charleston and Savannah and took many bike rides. This was our first time to Kiawah, but would like to come back. When we do, we will definitely stay at the Beach Cottage again."
