A delightful cottage with lovely furnishings, many waterfowl decorations, and a screened in porch added to our enjoyment of the visit! We will be back next year!

Close to beach and very quiet.
Stayed May 2-8. First time to the island. We had a great week in this cottage. Perfect size for 4 of us. Very close to the beach. Took the door to left of cottage and boardwalk 2 to beach. Enjoyed the quietness of deck. We saw a few skinks going up the trees and lots of birds. Could hear ocean from deck also. Cottage was clean and in quiet area. Appreciate getting a call from Pam Harrington Exclusives when we got there to make sure everything was good and in working order. Did a lot of bike riding there on island. Saw deer a few times right off the boardwalk to the beach. Great week!!

1096 is in a great location it is just a short walk to the beach no more than 5 minutes. The cottage itself is in decent shape but it needs updating new area rugs, living room furniture, new paint, TV’s, and flooring carpet/hardwood. I felt some of the furniture pieces and Knick knacks just created clutter and weren’t necessary. The kitchen is welled stocked with dishes and bakeware including an instant pot. The utility room is a good size with a full size washer and dryer. The bedrooms are small. We did use the outdoor shower. We would stay here again We had a great stay. Weather was perfect spent the week enjoying the beach and riding our bicycles. We were a family of 5 adults and a 1 year old.

Fall break
We enjoyed our stay. This is fourth time renting 1096 Sparrow Pond. The location suits us well, and we enjoy the porch and deck. We're glad the amount of construction has tapered off. That's the main reason we rented other cottages the past year.

Great Place!
Great place, great stay! This cottage was perfect for 6 close female friends not afraid to share bathrooms. The outdoor shower was a big hit(needs to be de-spiderwebbed tho) and we called it the exotic shower! Screened porch is a must when staying at KI too, and this one is in great shape. Well equipped kitchen. This Sparrow Pond cottage is the closest to the beach of all of them, with a hidden Duneside villa gate to beach access boardwalk #2 literally 20 footsteps away from your driveway. Beds and bedding are comfy, bath towels are good. Nothing Ritz Carlton luxurious, but Marriott style good enough.

Great vacation
We had a wonderful vacation! The house was just as advertised. The location is wonderful! We were steps from the beach access and steps from the pool. The kitchen had everything we needed and more! The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were nice. Pam Harrington was wonderful to work with. They called a couple of times to see if I had questions and sent emails with all the information I needed. I would definitely recommend working with Pam Harrington!

a great week in Kiawah
We have enjoyed 1096 for several vacation weeks over the past few years. The rooms are lovely, and the kitchen well appointed for our uses. The porch is lovely in the morning watching the birds over the lagoon and listening to and then watching the deer steal through the brush beneath us. The water is hot enough for 6 of us to shower when we get back from the beach. We love the short walk to the dunes and the beach, or to the pool nearby. This is a great place for a week of relaxation and fun.

Excellent Location
We had a great stay at Kiawah Island the first week of August. The property had a great location with a short walk to the beach. The property was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Wish we had known there was a baby bed already there, as we packed one and could have used the extra space. We enjoyed the outdoor living area and grilling our at night.

Perfect location!
My husband and I and our 4 children had a wonderful week at the Sparrow Pond Cottage. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well-equipped. While our family of 6 usually prefers a slightly larger space, the location of the cottage was a worthwhile trade off. We definitely intend to stay at this cottage again.

Very close to the beach, perfect for a small group. The supplies (paper towels, toilet paper, and laundry detergent) were a bit skint but otherwise not a single complaint.

Family vacation, second time at 1096 Sparrow Pond
Perfect weather, a good time had by all. Best of all our son and his wife joined us. He's been through a rough treatment for cancer and also just had a hip replacement 2 weeks before this trip. He was very happy to be back at Kiawah. The close walk to the beach was a big help too.

Close to the ocean and comfortable
We had another great weak in Kiawah at 1096 Sparrow Pond. We like to sit on the porch drinking our morning coffee and listen to the birds and squirrels playing in the trees while we watch the egrets on the lagoon. Then a day at the beach with the umbrellas and chairs and our books. Back to hot showers and dinner at one of the nearby or Charleston restaurants. The space is fine for 6 of us. Air-conditioning works fine. Quiet and peaceful and perfect.

Best Location for the $$
We have stayed at that house several times in the past & have always enjoyed it. It has a great view of the lagoon from the screened in porch (a must for eating meals & enjoying nature), a 3 minute walk to the beach & pool. It could have been cleaned on the outside a little more (outdoor shower full of cobwebs & bugs so we never used it) but other than that we found it to be very homey, cozy & convenient. We would definitely stay there again.

1096 Diodia Court
We've stayed in this unit several times and its location is perfect. Very close to the beach making for an easy walk down.

The only suggestions I would recommend would be a new DVD player as the existing one will only play in black and white, in spite of our concerted efforts to achieve color, and the internet speed is terrible if you have to do any work or stay plugged in during your stay.

Otherwise, as always, we had a wonderful, relaxing time in this unit.

Thank you for letting us know! Owner is gladly replacing the DVD player and updating the internet speed. See you next year!

"Lovely view, clean and comfortable and fine. There are a couple of minor maintanence things: sliding door to porch doesn't close tight unless locked, master bath fan squeaks, washing machine needs oil or something. but the big stuff is great: air-conditioning works well, hot water is hot, toilets work, beds are soft, no bugs alive, clean and ready when promised.

Second stay in this cottage
We had a lovely, relaxing time. The unit was exceptionally clean upon our arrival! The only suggestion we might make is that the two west facing bedrooms could do with some lined draped to keep the afternoon heat down and possibly ceiling fans in each. Otherwise, excellent!

Gotta love Kiawah
Great weather. Close to the beach. Quiet neighbors: squirrels in the trees, herons in the lagoon. We wake up and make coffee in the kitchen then drink it watching the sun rise from that screened in porch. beach chairs provided, and we rent umbrellas and loungers for the week. Could grill on the back porch I guess, but we always drive into Charleston or one of the great restaurants on the way. NO BOARDWALK husslers, just sun, sand, dunes, gentle waves, and a week of great books and family time. Been doing this for 20 years and hope to do 20 more.

This is a very comfortable, nicely updated, ideally located beach bungalow that was a perfect fit for our family of four. The living area was very welcoming and the kitchen and bathrooms nicely updated. And, it is a short walk to the beach. A great value for the money. We would rent again.

Sparrow Pond was a delight
We wanted to try out Kiawah as a "snow bird" get-away and we were thrilled. The breakfast on the back porch overlooking the lagoon let us watch the egrets and herons. Deer wandered through the woods and we were just a minute from the boardwalk out to the ocean where we walked each day with pretty much only gulls and pipers to share the beach. Charleston dinners every night, no problems getting reservations. February has weather in the 50-60's, blooming camellias, magnolias, azaleas, daffodils. If you are coming from Ohio, this is April in Paris! The home itself is lovely, has a well appointed kitchen, and lovely furnishings and feels welcoming. We are veteran summer Kiawah visitors but this was our first winter trip. We loved it.

Lagoon Hideaway
The location to the beach and pool were ideal. The view of the lagoon was beautiful and very relaxing. Being set back in the trees was very private, although there were tons of spider webs and spiders along our deck and porch. The updates in the kitchen and bathroom were wonderful and the cottage was very well stocked. We would stay there again!

11096 Sparrow Pond--Great Beach Spot !
We were very happy with our choice. EXTREMELY CLOSE to the beach, right behind beachfront villas. The location near the entrance to Kiawah also made for quick bike rides to casual shopping/general store, and the pool to which one has access w/ this property is nice and also very nearby. Another positive for us was a well-furnished kitchen ( cookware, utensils and tools etc. ) and an unusually large utility room near the entrance where supplies and gear ( dry goods, luggage, cases of drinks, coolers and carts for the beach, etc. ) could be stored out of the way. TVs were average but perfectly serviceable. Quality of furnishings on the outdoor portion of the deck was marginal, but there was a decent outdoor shower with a partial enclosure, and some of those low-slung beach chairs you could use at the beach if you didn't bring any. All in all, nealy perfect for an informal family outing.
