About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-8

Come find rest and relaxation at our cozy cottage on Kiawah Island. Enjoy the breeze and the sound of crashing waves from our deck. Watch for wildlife from our screened porch as the tide ebbs and flows in the inlet behind the cottage. Our cottage, located in the gated Inlet Cove community, is perfect for family gatherings with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and plenty of room for fun both indoors and out. Inlet Cove is a special neighborhood on Kiawah Island, with its own private pool and dock on the Kiawah River available only to residents and guests staying at Inlet Cove. Bring your kayak or paddle board – or rent one when you get here – and launch it from the dock just a short walk from the cottage. The dock is also great for crabbing or fishing, and is a fantastic place to enjoy the sunsets over the river. Watching the dolphins play and feed along the riverbank is a don’t-miss event! Walk – or ride your bike – and enjoy the miles and miles of gorgeous beach found on Kiawah, or explore the island, with its unsurpassed river, ocean and marsh views, via the extensive network of bicycle trails. You can also enjoy the views from our lower deck while cooking dinner on the grill, or just relax in one of the rocking chairs or the hammock.

Our cottage is centrally located within Inlet Cove between the community pool and the beach. A leisurely trail also connects our neighborhood to the General Store and West Beach Village, with shopping and casual dining (and the kids’ favorite – the ice cream shop!) If golf and tennis are your passions, you’ve come to the perfect vacation spot – Kiawah’s 5 golf courses were designed by Jack Nicklaus, Pete Dye, Tom Fazio, Clyde Johnston and Gary Player. The famous Ocean Course was Host to the 1991 Ryder Cup, the 2007 Senior PGA Championship and the 2012 PGA Championship. Kiawah has also been ranked as the #1 tennis resort in the world. Both clay and hard courts are available, along with fully stocked pro shops. In addition, Kiawah is home to a lovely spa at The Sanctuary and a wonderful children’s camp (Kamp Kiawah) offering activities and adventures throughout the year. There is something for everyone at Kiawah!

The cottage includes a fully equipped and newly renovated kitchen with seating for 3 at the island. We have a gas range - perfect for those who love to cook, and a tankless hot water heater, so no running out of hot water when everyone takes a shower after a day at the beach! In addition, the large open dining-living area includes a dining room table that seats up to 8 as well as plenty of space for lounging in the living room and the adjacent screened porch. The master bedroom has a king size Tempurpedic bed and connects directly to the master bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed and shares a bathroom with the third bedroom, which has two extra-long twins. Both bathrooms are newly renovated, as well. The living room has a 50 inch flat screen TV and Blu-ray/DVD player and there are flat screen TVs in the master and queen bedrooms, as well. We also have wireless high-speed internet if you just have to stay connected.

If you’d like to explore off-island, Charleston, with its southern charm, plantations and history, is only 20 miles away. Charleston’s attractions include world-class restaurants serving delicious local fare, a beautiful historic district, an outstanding aquarium, a Children's Museum, Ft. Sumter, harbor cruises, the WWII-era aircraft carrier USS Yorktown, carriage tours, and much more. The Charleston City Market is a great shopping adventure where you can observe ladies making and selling sweetgrass baskets – the perfect souvenir for your lowcountry vacation!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time. We were very happy with the location and the property overall! There were a few small issues that we had to report: dryer was not working and a leak in the ceiling. Everything was handled and fixed very quickly! We would definitely visit again!"

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely cottage while vacationing with family. The décor is updated with a well-appointed kitchen; we really enjoyed cooking meals on the large gas range with the family gathered around the beautiful granite island! The home is spotless and has all the amenities we could have asked for. We loved sitting on the screened porch watching wildlife on the salt marsh inlet, an ever changing view. We’ve been to Kiawah many times and this rental is now our favorite. It’s only a quick walk or bike ride to the beach or to the nearby bridge to watch a sunset. Truly a home away from home!

Wonderful Kiawah experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our son's high school graduation/family vacation. It was wonderful. The home was lovely and clean. We had our nephew and niece with us and everyone had a great time. Short walk to the beach, everything we needed in the house. Just recommend a dust pan for sweeping/tidying up. The location is great. Thank you for a memorable family time!

Cute Cottage

  • 4 of 5

I would definitely recommend this cottage for your stay at Kiawah. The location is ideal ... close to the beach and community pool. There is seating near the pool which overlooks the Kiawah River and the sunsets are spectacular and not to be missed! The shabby chic cottage is well maintained and in a quiet setting (except for trash mornings) backing up to a tidal canal. As mentioned the only negative was the darn trash trucks that came twice during our stay at 8AM and were incredibly loud ... no sleeping in on trash days!

Wonderful House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the best vacations ever and loved this beautiful house! The kitchen and bathrooms have been updated recently and are top of the line! I always appreciate furniture with drawers so I can unpack my suitcase....and the bedroom and bathrooms both had a lot of drawers. We rode bikes everywhere and it was an easy ride to the beach and not too far to ride the Freshfields and the grocery store. My children wanted to try all of the ice cream shops and we almost successful in that endeavor all by bike! The weather was still a little chilly for swimming, but we did look at the pool and it was very nice. It was fun to walk along the pier by the pool and watch the kayaks go by the the marsh area. Beautiful view!

I am sure I am leaving something out.....but I really cannot say enough good things about this rental!
