About the property

3BR/2BA Cottage

Kiawah Island already holds the distinction of having the toughest golf course in America. Now, Coastal Living Magazine named the island the 'Happiest Seaside Town,' in the U.S. As a barrier island, it is home to 10 miles of unspoiled fine-sand beach; wild growing palmetto, oak and magnolia trees; various mammals and rare birds. Kiawah is the ideal vacation spot with easy access to commerce and culture. In addition, the readers of Conde Nast Traveler have determined that the combination of Charleston and Kiawah Island is unmatched anywhere else in the word. Kiawah Island ranked as the top island in the US in this year's 2014 Readers' Digest Choice Awards.

Our three bedroom, two bath cottage is located in the private subdivision of Inlet Cove, which is along the Kiawah River. Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds; the third bedroom has twin beds. The master bedroom has access to the deck and screened-in porch. A fully equipped kitchen with dinette, dining room and living room complete the living area of the cottage. The location is only a five minute walk to both the ocean and Inlet Cove pool.

The cottage is very clean and beautifully decorated. It sleeps 6 comfortably. It has ceramic tile floors and carpet. Pool. A/C, charcoal grill, wet bar, washer/dryer, 3 TVs, 1DVD/VCR, cable, stereo cassette-CD player, dishes, bed and bath linens, sheltered parking, ceiling fans, telephone with free long distance calls within the U.S., wireless internet service, microwave, fireplace, beach toys and beach chairs. No pets/smoking permitted.

One can view the wildlife of the island while relaxing on the screened porch. Spectaular sunsets can be viewed while walking on the beach and from the viewing area near the fishing/boat dock adjacent to the Inlet Cove pool. Dolphins are often seen from these locations.

At or Nearby Activities: Kiawah Island has golf courses available to guests. They include, Turtle Point - designer, Jack Nicklaus, Cougar Point - designer, Gary Player, The Ocean Course - designer, Pete Dye, and Tom Fazio's Osprey Point. Mingo Point, located along the Kiawah River, has kayaks and/or canoes available for rentals.

The Ocean Course was the home of the 1991 Ryder Cup, 1997 World Cup, the 2007 Senior PGA golf tournament and hosted the PGA Golf Tournament in August, 2012. The island also has tennis courts that are both hard and clay surfaces. Kids have access to Night Heron Park, daily camp activities and biking.

Freshfields Village is located at the entrance to the island. It has a grocery store, Newton Farms; coffee shops - Java Java and Starbucks, which is located inside Harris-Teeter Village Market; Marble Stone Creamery, Indigo Books, speciality stores, and restaurants - King Street Grille, La Teva, Ladles, and Hege's. There is a drug store with a soda fountain, a general store, liquor store and dry cleaners. Freshfields Village offers a farmers' market on Wednesdays. They offer local concerts on the green Friday evenings and family movies one day a week.

Other items of interest - marina, parasailing, deep sea fishing, canoeing, surf fishing, boating, kayaking, restaurants, sailing, jet skiing, horseback riding and hiking.

The cottage is only a 30 minute drive from historic Charleston and its aquarium, Civil War Forts Sumter and Moultrie, and several southern plantations, Drayton Hall, Magnolia Gardens, Middleton Plantation and Boone Hall, where parts of 'Gone with the Wind' were filmed. One can also easily take a day trip to Savannah, GA.

Very nice cottage in a great resort

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first time in Kiawah Island. The resort was very nice and the cottage was perfect for our family of five. 3 good sized bedrooms and 2 full baths. Kitchen, dining area, and living room were nicely furnished and spacious. We used the enclosed screen porch in the mornings and evenings. Cottage was very clean, updated nicely, and the owners were extremely helpful and responsive to any question or issue we had before, during, and even after our trip. They really wanted our vacation to be special. The cottage was just a short walk to the beach and the pool. Everything very nice and well maintained. The beach was one of the nicest we have ever visited. Sand was so nice and clean - no rocks or shells. When the tide was out we could ride our bikes for miles down the beach. There are a lot of good restaurants and activities within driving distance of the resort. We also used the bbq and well-supplied kitchen many times. This was one of our favorite vacations and we would definitely recommend this cottage.

My sisters and their families come to Kiawah every summer. We rented 3 houses located inside Inlet Cove. My husband and I shared one house with adult children. Our house was the cleanest and less cluttered of all the other cottages. It is decorated nice but not overdone.

The owners were very resposive to our emails prior to booking and sent us important information prior to our trip.

We love to ride bikes and take long walks on the Island. The scenery is beautiful at Kiawah!

Inlet Cove, Kiawah Island = Relaxing + Refreshing

  • 5 of 5

Kiawah is our favorite vacation spot, extremely relaxing and beautiful. Our stay at Inlet Cove was simply divine, the color and texture breathes calmness throughout the entire condo. Everything is clean, open and very easy to transition as the home away from home while in Kiawah. The ceramic tile dining, kitchen and baths as well as the walk in shower and enclosed tile bath are very practical, and beautifully functioning updates. Thank you for all the work you have put into making this the best vacation accommodations. We loved our stay and look forward to our next visit.
