About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come to the number one resort on the East Coast of the USA in historic low-country SC minutes from Charleston. Golf, bike, kayak, swim, play tennis, walk the beach, watch dolphin and manatees as well as all of the shore birds and birds indigenous to the lush maritime forest! Visit historic Charleston and the plantations of the Ashley and Cooper Rivers. Shop and dine in style both on the Island and in Charleston! Our house comfortably holds six and features a master bedroom with its own bath and king-sized bed as well as two other bedrooms each having two twin beds and sharing another bathroom. The kitchen is well-equipped--we use the house often and keep our favorite videos, games, and books on hand to share. The beach is an easy walk from the house, as are the pool/baby pool and dock! Crab or fish from the dock or from the bridge just behind our house. Come relax and watch the river and the birds on our screened porch, y'all!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Three families own our house. They include two physicians, two lawyers, a teacher/speech therapist, and a nurse, as well as our adult children. We have all known each other for years and enjoy each other as well as the house. Our children have grown up spending time at Kiawah in this house--it is very much a part of their childhoods! Several of us are ace tennis players, most of us love to bike, and several of us are serious kayakers. We all love John Wayne, as you'll be able to tell from our video collection. We never tire of exploring Charleston and the low country. Once you come, you'll be hooked, too!

Why the Owner Chose West Beach, Kiawah Island, SC, USA:
We all live in North Carolina, four to six hours from Kiawah, so we can easily drive down for a long weekend. We love Inlet Cove's location on the Kiawah River, giving us access to boating and fishing as well as bird and dolphin watching. The location is gated and secure, making it a marvelous place to let children roam. If you can swim, you are safe at Kiawah!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Inlet Cove is located on the Kiawah River, giving residents access to river life as well as to the miles of pristine beach. You can bike to Fresh Fields, the shopping village linking Kiawah and Seabrook Islands, with its upscale grocery store, restaurants, and shopping. Kiawah offers seven champion golf courses as well as two tennis centers. Bike rentals, kayak/canoe tours, bird-watching tours, dolphin-watching tours are all available.
