One of the highlights is the cottage’s kitchen, which is well-appointed with stainless steel appliances, plentiful countertop space and all the utensils, cookware and dishes you might need to create the perfect meal. The adjoining dining room offers ample room to linger over dinner with a couple of cocktails and lots of laughter.

Of course, we completely understand if you prefer to step out onto the deck to grill up supper and dine al fresco. And don’t forget to take advantage of the lovely screen-in porch, ideal for relaxing with a book or taking a short siesta.

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, and Room for 6 Guests

With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, The Sea Shell at Oceanwoods has plenty of space for everyone to stretch out. In the master bedroom, find a king-sized deluxe bed with a pillow-top mattress, the finest linens and large windows that let the sun shine through. A bathroom with a walk-in shower completes the master suite.

The 2nd bedroom has a queen-sized bed, while the third bedroom comes with 2 twin-sized beds. Both feature high-quality linens and a shared bathroom with a shower/tub combination.

Spend time together in the cottage’s living room, which has plush furniture and decorative fireplace. The cottage has wireless internet service throughout, and large, flat-panel televisions are located in the living room and every bedroom. The cottage has a washer and dryer as well (please note that the dryer is ventless and does not work well drying large loads. An outdoor drying rack is accessible from the deck and can be used to air dry heavier items like towels).

Though we’re sure you’ll feel right at home at the Sea Shell at Oceanwoods, don’t forget to head outside and explore the area.

Located just 30 minutes from historic downtown Charleston on Kiawah’s East Beach, The Sea Shell at Oceanwoods is just a short walk to Night Heron Park, several restaurants and local shops. More importantly, this beautiful cottage is just a one-minute walk to Kiawah Island’s ten miles of pristine beach.

The Sea Shell at Oceanwoods 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 other 3-bedroom cottage, the Shell Seeker at Sparrow Pond – you will be delighted!

About Shawn and Jeanette Lawson

About Property Managers, Shawn and Jeanette Lawson (Kiawah Island Getaways):

Shawn's family discovered Kiawah in 1978 and returned year after year for two-week vacations. In 1985 we drove our VW Bug convertible to Kiawah and Shawn introduced me to Kiawah. I remember stepping over the dune boardwalk out in front of the Kiawah Island Inn and seeing Kiawah's wide, sandy beach for the first time - it was so brilliant it practically danced before my eyes. It was during this vacation that the two of us decided to set our sights on moving to this beautiful and fascinating place permanently.

In 1988 our dreams came true and our U-Haul rattled across the Kiawah Island bridge (at that time it was nothing more than a wood-planked bridge). For the next four years we rented a 1-bedroom villa, 4251 Mariner's Watch. Shawn was so thrilled to be living on the island that he applied for the personalized South Carolina license plate 'KIAWAH' (which we still have today).

In 1992, we built our first home on the island at 134 Conifer Lane. During construction, I gave birth to our first son Benjamin - he arrived 2 months early in an ambulance outside of the Kiawah Island Fire Station.

In 2001, we purchased our first villa, a 1-bedroom, beachside Seascape and Kiawah Island Getaways was born. Once we got our feet wet with the villa rental business, it was a like a fever for us. We both really enjoyed furnishing, decorating and maintaining the villas - not to mention the new found fun of meeting and talking to all sorts of people about Kiawah. Because we really enjoy what we do, other Kiawah property owners noticed and we started managing their properties as well.

Our whole family loves Kiawah and running Kiawah Island Getaways is a true family-run business. We personally prepare each villa prior to your arrival - because we want your stay to be perfect. We want you to fall in love with Kiawah too...and we know you will.

great location, clean and well appointed but a little pricey

  • 4 of 5

We spent 10 days at the Sea Shell. The house is in a great location - five minutes from the closest beach access. The house was very comfortable - clean and fresh, with nice furnishings and nicely done baths. The kitchen was well appointed and easy to use, and a nice gas grill on the back deck.

Great location

Perfect location to beach especially for small children. Well equipped, extremely comfortable, and spacious for a family of 3. Tremendous proximity to beach, Sanctuary, and Night Heron Park. Great choice!

Second year stay - loved it just as much

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at this Ocean Woods Cottage and we are booking our third year. The home was just as it had been the year prior and worked beautifully for our family with 3 small children. I love the sight lines from the kitchen, dining and sofa areas. The location can't be beat for us. We can walk to the Sanctuary along the beach with a stroller for lunch or dinner and be back in time for naps.
