About Charlotte Gerber

I just purchased this cottage back in early December of 2012 for second home and an investment property. I live in Charleston and have always wanted to have a place on Kiawah. I am so looking forward to relaxing and enjoying all that Kiawah has to offer.........I am an avid tennis player and love to bike- so this is the place to be. Kiawah Island is like no other............

It worked

  • 3 of 5

Our party consisted of 3 men who stayed at this property for a golf weekend. Generally speaking the property was acceptably clean and quite reasonable for the price however we discovered several shortcomings. We had great difficulty opening the lock box on the door which held the key to get in. When I tried to contact Charlotte I only got voicemail. There were some items missing, in our opinion, that are necessities found in all overnight accommodations that I have stayed in over 30 years. Items like soap and tissue in the bathrooms are standard. I have seen a book in many accommodations that identify places to eat and things to do while in the area and a way to contact the owner in case of emergency. The internet was not working for a portion of our stay and the television never worked even though there were no weather issues that could have knocked those services out. Fortunately we did not spend a lot of time in the villa other than sleeping. These items may seem small but are things we took for granted. Overall - it worked! The price was right and that helped significantly.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that you were disappointed somewhat with my cottage. I always put starter supplies for my guests -not sure why the maid did not do this. I have had no problem with internet or Tv down there so I am not sure what the issue was during your stay. Sometimes guests change channel on remote and you have to reprogram it. I do apologize. I am always available by phone, email or text-all my contact info was on your rental agreement. I live locally in Charleston and would have come down to try and fix internet and cable tv. I always get back to my guests asap. I wish you had left a voicemail so I would have known you were having issues. You just have to use 2 hands to open lockbox- one to hold it after putting in code and the other to open it- sorry that it was a pain. Thanks Charlotte Gerber

Nice Quite Location

  • 4 of 5

If you enjoy a more secluded quiet area, this is your location. Though the back view is facing the fairway of first hole on the golf course it is quiet. We were there about ten days after hurricane Matthew, the electric had been off until a week or so before arrival so cottage was a little musty smelling. After turning air on and letting fan run on HVAC the odor disappeared. Owner was great getting back to us in regard to a question we had. If you do any cooking be sure to bring salt/pepper. Dish detergents, softener sheets, coffee filters were on hand along with starter supply of paper towels and toilet tissue. We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. We had great lunches at Red's Ice House at Bohicket Marina and southern home style cooking at Stono Market & Tomato Shed Cafe on Main Road (they have daily specials). Staff is friendly and helpful. Across the road from Tomato Shed is a great shop, The Tree House, they have really neat things besides the fountains and pots out front. You need to see AND hear the huge wind chimes hanging in the live oak, beautiful. Ginger and the ladies are really friendly. If you have not seen the Angel Oak you will enjoy this attraction not far from Kiawah. Just be sure to take your mosquito repellent if the little buggers like you for their dining pleasure. Thank you, Charlotte, for letting us rent the cottage and bring our special guests.

Fun and relaxing place to visit.

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage. We visit Kiawah about once a year and this place is great. All on one level makes it easy to enter in exit. The kitchen and washer and dryer afford all the comfort and conveniences of home. I would recommend it for a low key relaxing beach trip with plenty of things to do. You can go biking, or to the beach, or go enjoy the nature center. We also played golf on the island at one of the pristine golf courses there. All amenities were right there on the island.

Much nicer than pictures! Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful trip to Kiawah over New Years and it all began with this great villa. The property is much larger than images appear. For example, I viewed the dining table to be a high top. It is actually a full size table. The sun room off the back was also a nice quiet spot not shown in the photos. The owner provides more than the standard ammenities normally found in a rental. For example, the villa had a couple of laundry pods, dryer sheets, detergent pods, dish soap, bar soap, salt/pepper, books, island info, and beach chairs (2). There were also plenty of towels, etc. and small bottles of shampoo. Finally, we saw no bugs! This was a first for S. Carolina vacations for us. It was winter but temps were in the 70's and we expected to encounter the usual "visitors" at some point. As for the location, we found West Beach to be a lovely

Community. We previously stayed on Amaranth and thought that location could not be beat. However, West Beach allowed us to easily bike to Freshfields, enjoy the Straw Market, and provided easy beach access. We had our 3 boys (8,7,4) with us and I recommend watching the tide report and taking the beach to Heron's park and nature center. It was much quicker than the bike paths. We ate at a few restaurants and kids had the most fun at Red's Ice House in Seabrook. We also had really great pizza and she crab soup right at the market in the middle of Kiawah! Pools were not open for the season but West Beach pool looks great. We also did the archery lesson, family kayak (dolphins and pluff mud), and some nature center activities. Family New Years Eve party at Herons Park was SO FUN and free! We were sad to come home. Thank you for sharing your villa and island with us!

Great get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 adults, 2 teenage boys) had a great time in this cottage. It was convenient to the beach and shopping and very well equipped. The cottage was nicely decorated and had all the amenities we needed. I would definitely recommend to anyone staying here to rent beach bikes, they were awesome to have to get to the beach quickly and to just site see around the island.
