The Shell Seeker at Sparrow Pond

This 3-bedroom, 3-bath property accommodates up to 6 people - the ideal choice for a family vacation or a getaway with friends. The open floor plan makes it simple to wander from the kitchen to the dining room and living room, so you’re never far from the action.

The cottage’s kitchen is outfitted with elegant marble countertops, a built-in ice maker, sub-zero refrigerator and Wolf range – and all the pots, pans, utensils and cookware you could possibly need. At the adjacent dining dining, reminisce about and unwind from a long, happy day on the beach. If you prefer, take advantage of the outdoor deck, complete with a grill and table for al fresco dining.

Your Choice of Settings for Relaxation

At The Shell Seeker at Sparrow Pond, you have your choice of places to relax and unwind. Step out on the screened-in back porch, complete with comfortable wicker seating, tranquil wooded views and enchanting evening landscape lighting.

Or, feel free to kick back in the living room, which features media center with a large smart TV and DVD player. Wireless internet, surround sound pumped through built-in speakers and a small library of books provide ample entertainment after the sun goes down. Note: Two living room chairs and couch have cushions wrapped in down. Fireplace is decorative only (non-functioning).

2 Master Suites and 1 Guest Suite

The cottage’s dual master suites (that's right: 2 master suites!) beckon with king-sized deluxe beds and pillow-top mattresses, Egyptian-cotton sheets and high-end linens. Both suites have smart TVs. Both master bathrooms are spacious and well-lit with large walk-in showers – and one even has a claw-foot tub.

For those who choose the 3rd bedroom, you’ll find 2 twin beds, equally outfitted in choice bedding, a smart TV and a bathroom with a shower/tub combination. And don’t worry if you need to throw in a load of laundry during your stay: this fully furnished retreat also has a washer and dryer.

About Our Location

When you tear yourself away from your home-away-from-home, make sure you check out the surrounding neighborhood. Claim your spot on the nearby pristine beach, where you can swim in the calm waters of the Atlantic Ocean – located just a 5 minute walk from the front door.

Expand your explorations a bit further to find the Cougar Point Golf Course and several restaurants. The lovely historic downtown Charleston is a mere 30 minutes away.

"Appliances, kitchen supplies, beds, decor, and location are all A++"

by T. Bross


Fantastic home! Layout, appliances, kitchen supplies, beds, plenty of space, decor, and location are all A++. Kiawah Island Getaways is awesome; They deliver as promised!

"Stayed at 3 of their properties and their attention to detail is exceptional."

by C. Barkes


Their properties are amazing! My husband and I used to stay in the hotel on the island for our annual Kiawah trip, but as our family grew we needed more space than a hotel room. We have stayed at 3 of their properties and their attention to detail is exceptional. You can tell they truly care about each property by the details that are in each property along with the investments they make to ensure you have a luxurious stay (high end appliances, bedding, etc)

"Beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed"

by J. Brigance


Everything was perfect. The property was immaculate. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms for the whole family. Check in and check out were very simple. I would definitely stay there again when renting at Kiawah. We’ve been going to Kiawah for over thirty years now and I think this is one of the best rentals I’ve had on the island.

"Well appointed with everything you need for a week’s stay at the beach"

by C. Callas


We really loved this rental. It was very well appointed; with everything you need for a week's stay at the beach. Just like the pictures.

"Great kitchen for cooking. Loved the grill!"

by J. James


Place was clean, plenty of room, Great kitchen for cooking. Loved the grill! About 5 minute walk to beach. It was awesome!

"This unit was a quick walk to the beach"

by M. Hulan


This unit was a quick walk to the beach, tucked away at the end of a cul de sac and beautifully appointed! Everything you needed for a beach stay with family was here. The kitchen was thoughtfully stocked . Beach towels, cooler, even a beach bag were provided. Handy binders of info about dining and outings were appreciated. Communication was wonderful!

"Chic Beach Cottage on a Quiet Cul-de-Sac, Grill"

by R. Scoggin


We had a lovely time at the Shell Seeker. The home was better than pictured, the kitchen had everything you could possibly need (and then some), proximity to the pool and the beach were great for us and our littles, and the owners were very gracious hosts. Would definitely stay here again!

"We absolutely plan to stay here again!"

by C. Kenny


My family (two adults, three young kids) stayed at a Kiawah Island Getaways property for our summer vacation. The unit (The Shell Seeker) was in excellent condition and had pretty much everything a young family needs for a nice vacation. The property managers were responsive and helpful. We absolutely plan to stay here again.

"The Property is Beautifully Decorated"

by L. Bruns


We spent 4 nights over Memorial Day weekend with our two kids - ages 3 & 8. The property is beautifully decorated and kitchen is well stocked. Beds and pillows all comfy. We ate all our breakfasts in the home and we enjoyed all the appliances we needed to feel like home. Blender, toaster, multiple pitchers for our iced tea and fruit infused water. It really is a great set up. You will want a bike with a trailer to take anything to the beach as it’s a bit of a walk to lug bags and toys. Once at the beach entrance, we parked our bikes there then it’s another 150 yards (?) until you hit the sand. You can rent chairs and umbrellas at the beach but they are set out only 10am-5pm. We enjoyed the natural beauty of the island and the community of this property. We saw an alligator in the wild, blue heron, and we heard whip-por-wills nightly.

"Kiawah Island Getaways – Shell Seeker"

by B. Rotramel


"What can I say but GO! Go now to Kiawah Island. We stayed at the “The Shell Seeker at Sparrow Pond” in May 2018. The house is fantastic! It was a perfect layout for two couples (two master suites) and a third bedroom for kids with the third bathroom. The screened in porch was a great place to start the day. Claw foot soaking tab was a great way to end it.
The kitchen was phenomenal. Top notch appliances, perfect layout and great stove. This beautiful house was in a quiet area and close to a great beach. Make sure and rent bikes for the beach and bike trails.
Shawn and Jeanette Lawson were great to work with for the renting of this property from Kiawah Island Getaways. We will definitely rent from them again."
