The Surf Shack at Sparrow Pond

Kiawah Island Getaways has always been a leader in the field of clean vacation rentals and will continue to do so.

At 1,750 square feet, our 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom property comfortably accommodates up to 8 people – but as you’ve probably guessed, this is not your typical cottage.

Technology for a Connected Vacation (Plus Plenty of Reasons to Unplug)
The unique design of the living space features ample space to kick back and relax in front of a working fireplace. Punctuated by a high-vaulted ceiling, the living room is a tech-lover’s dream with cable and Apple TV available on a 60-inch Samsung high-definition smart TV, and a soundbar and subwoofer combination that adds enhanced sound to your favorite movie or tunes.

Take advantage of full-access WiFi coverage in both the indoor and outdoor living spaces, and enjoy Pandora, Internet radio and AirPlay in the living room, kitchen, screen porch and outdoor side porch.


Without question, among the property’s highlights are the stunning gourmet kitchen and top-of-the-line outdoor grilling area complete with a fire pit. Whether you want to throw together your favorite meal or try a new grilling recipe, this is your opportunity to let your cooking enthusiast come out to play.

And, just as you can choose where to cook, you also have a choice when it comes to dining. Outside, feel free to relax around the fire pit with friends and family and exchange stories from the day.

Or, set up shop in the al fresco dining area on the back deck. Overlooking the lagoon and outfitted with a ceiling fan, heaters and television, this screened-in space is inviting from sunrise to sundown (and late into the night!).

The property’s 4 bedrooms – 2 with king-sized beds, 1 with a queen-sized bed and 1 with a deluxe queen and twin bunk – are all outfitted with cutting-edge home technology, pillow-top mattresses, luxurious linens and high-end touches.
Each bedroom has access to its own bathroom with walk-in showers, and 2 bedrooms have direct access to an outdoor shower area. This completely private outdoor shower is the perfect place to rinse off that lingering beach sand and saltwater before heading out for the evening.

About Our Location

Despite the Surf Shack’s appeal, make sure you tear yourself away to check out what awaits around the island. Within walking distance are the community pool (3 minute walk) and the Atlantic Ocean with beach access (5 minute walk). Hop in your car for a 30-minute drive to historic downtown Charleston.

Unsurprisingly, The Surf Sack at Sparrow Pond is one of our most popular Kiawah Island rentals, so book soon to reserve your stay. If it is already reserved for your chosen timeframe, don’t panic! Instead, check out our 4-bedroom oceanfront Breeze at Seascape property – you will be delighted!

"High-Tech, Bali-Inspired "Surf Shack", Indoor Fireplace AND Outdoor Firepit"

by M. Gunst


The Surf Shack was wonderful. The location is excellent, a short five minute shaded walk to the beach or to the community swimming pool. The decor is tasteful and the kitchen was well-equipped with state of the art appliances.

This property exceeded expectations. It is so well appointed with easy access to the beach and pool. Beautiful and serene - we will be back!

"Extremely comfortable beds!!"

by D. Taylor


The home was beautifully renovated and decorated. Exceeded our expectations. Extremely comfortable beds!! Location very central to all on Kiawah Island, short walk to beach.

"Kitchen was the best stocked I have seen for a rental...close walk to the beach"

by L. Marshall


We had an amazing time at Kiawah. Cannot say enough great things about the surf shack. Kitchen was the best stocked I have seen for a rental. The house was lovely and the location with view over the pond was magical. Close walk to the beach. Hope to stay there again.

"Class A service"

by A. Dutcher


Our family has been vacationing through Kiawah Island Getaways since 2017 and our experience has been fantastic. Shawn and Jeanette are professional, responsive, and put a special touch on every property they manage. We have now rented four (4) different vacation rental properties from them of all different sizes; and what keeps us coming back is the Class A service and the consistency of their product year after year. We would truly be worried to try a different rental agency for fear of it not living up the Kiawah Island Getaway standard that has been set so high.

Loved the modern decor. Beds were super comfortable and bathrooms very modern and clean. Kitchen had everything we needed! Would stay again for sure!

"the single most responsive rental/vacation company we’ve used in 20 years."

by K. Bassett


Our 3 teens, my husband and I truly loved our week here. It was about a 5 minute walk to the amazing Kiawah Island beach. The bedding, kitchen and outside deck spaces were the highlights. I loved working with Kiawah Island Getaways – they were the single most responsive rental/vacation company we’ve used in 20 years. I’d recommend bike rentals and the private chef dinner – both made a massive difference to our vacation week.

"Our Family was Blown Away"

by C Carrick


In a COVID year, I had to make late plans for Kiawah and the Surf Shack. My bar for expectations was a bit low due to last-minute bookings. But Wow, we found ourselves immediately changing our mind and feeling fortunate to have locked this down over July 4th holiday! Our family was blown away by the careful thought and detail that went into every inch of the Cottage. The sound system (indoors and out), multiple comfortable outdoor porches, outdoor tv viewing, top of the line appliances, comfortable furniture, every kitchen utility we would need etc; made this a home run. Comfort, pond location, close proximity to the beach, thoughtful design and amenities make this a winner!

"Tasteful Beach Design"

by L. Chizmar


Sitting fireside as the sun rises listening to the waves crash onto the beach, we are grateful to have found this gem. Plenty of room to share with 4 couples, chefs kitchen, and high-end cookware and appliances, tasteful beach design, year-round outdoor space.... I could go one but no need. It’s beautiful and peaceful and we will be back soon.

"Everything Felt Fresh and Clean"

by C. Behrens


We had an amazing stay for Thanksgiving week. The cottage is decorated very nicely with a fully stocked kitchen. The outdoor area is amazing! Nice amenities such as Sonos speakers throughout and heaters on the back porch. Everything felt fresh and clean. Great linens and comfortable beds. It was a tad tight for two families but luckily the ample outdoor space gave us more room. I’d definitely book again!
