About the property

3 Bdrms+ den with daybed/trundle, 3 Baths, open kitchen, screened porch & more

Enjoy this ideal Kiawah cottage. 428 Sea Lavender is one of few cottages in Oceanwoods with 3 full baths and a den. The additional construction in 2014 makes it one of the largest cottage in the neighborhood with 1667 SF. The exterior of the house has a unique and inviting look. The kitchen has been opened, enlarged and refitted (stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, bar with stools), and two small rooms have been added: a dayroom with a sunny window seat on the front of the house and a separate laundry room with sink. The living area, opening to the screened porch, is updated with a new sofa/chaise lounge (from a Kiawah show house), two Sam Moore chairs and a flat screen TV. The two master suites with private bath have comfortable queen-sized beds, chairs for reading or conversation, and upscale (Peacock Alley, Tommy Bahama) bedding. The third bedroom has custom-built bunk beds and a single platform bed with stylish bedding suitable for children or adults. High end towels are provided for the 3 tiled bathrooms. All rooms except laundry room and baths have ceiling fans.

Located on a peaceful lagoon 150 yards from Kiawah's pristine beach, the cottage invites rest and relaxation. The walk to the beach is on a paved, shaded path that begins right outside the cottage driveway. Our stretch of the beach, situated just west of Night Heron Condos and the 5-Star Sanctuary Hotel, remains uncrowded, inviting volleyball, bocci ball and other beach games. You also will want to spend time on the cottage's secluded, screened porch (with durable Brown Jordan furniture) from which you will look down the large lagoon and often spot alligators, deer, bobcats, foxes, herons and abundant other species of birds. A charcoal grill invites a cook-out at any time. Wifi and four TVs (300 channels) are provided for additional enjoyment.

Four bikes are provided for use on the island's 30 mile bike trails. Night Heron Park (Nature Center, children's playground, basketball court, and more) is a 10 minute walk or a short bike ride away. The island's shops, restaurants, and tennis and golf courses are within easy biking or driving distance. Freshfields shopping area is just outside the entrance to Kiawah and offers boutiques, gift shops, restaurants and an excellent grocery store. Supberb restaurants are on the island, and Charleston, America’s no.1 tourist destination with world class restaurants, is only 35 minutes away! If you come once, you will return!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Ann's place in Kiawah Island and would love to return to it one day. The property exceeded our expectations and was perfect for our family. The kids (and adults) loved the proximity to the beach, and the attention to detail in the house was very impressive making for a very comfortable stay. We really couldn't recommend the property highly enough, Ann was a pleasure to deal with and it was a pleasure to stay at her property.

Spring beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Sea Lavendar Ct last Labor Day weekend and couldn't wait to return this past weekend!! I really appreciate how quickly Ann responds to emails and any questions and for detailed instructions and information regarding the stay. The home and location can't be beat. It is a short walk to the beautiful wide beach and there are lots of shady walking and bike paths. The home has a great layout and is beautifully decorated and so comfortable. We love sitting on the private screen porch over looking the lagoon . We also love nearby Fresh Fields Village and the Rider Cup Bar for lunch and it's gorgeous view! We can't wait to return !!

As a seasoned traveler, I can honestly say that there are few instances where I make the statement; "this house & location OVER delivers in every way imaginable". From the beginning, all communications with the owner Ann, were professional, detailed and prompt..this set a nice tone. It was our first trip to Kiawah, we typically take an annual golf/leisure trip to various destinations- The West Beach area of the Island is beautiful, quiet, with a short walk to the beach down a private footpath. It is convenient to all of the gorgeous golf courses, restaurants and up-scale shopping. The home itself was perfect. Among other amenities, it offers 2 great bdrms with private baths that worked perfectly for the adults, screened in porch, laundry room, great living area, etc etc! I highly recommend this property and hope to return-

Excellent Kiawah Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family has vacationed on Kiawah for more than 30 years and had opportunities to stay in some very nice locations. Over the years, we have loved West Beach and have now found our "home away from home". It was such a pleasure to stay in the very private location on the lagoon, so near the beach path to the Atlantic Ocean! The house is completely remodeled to accommodate couples or families and extremely well furnished with a fully stocked kitchen and upscale furnishings, furniture and linens. The property owner is very organized , quick to communicate and such a pleasure to work with. We definitely plan to return to this location! Thank you for sharing with us.

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Kiawah for almost 25 years and have stayed in many of the Oceanwoods properties. This is by far the best! Large space for everyone to call their own; clean and well-equipped; 3 bathrooms; awesome view of the lagoon and wonderful proximity to the beach. The bikes that were provided were great as just two of us used them and only a couple days...didn't have to hassle with renting them. Love the outdoor shower too! It was great that my children could be kids without having to worry about breaking something as well. The house was just as comfortable as if we were at home! We will definitely return to Kiawah and this beautiful home.
