About the property

3 Bedroom / 2 Bathrooms / Sleeps 6

Welcome to 11 Sundown Bend on Kiawah Island. After unpacking and settling into our cozy cottage, you will quickly discover why we fell in love with what we consider Kiawah’s best kept secret- Inlet Cove. Nowhere else on the Island will you have quick access to the beach, the Kiawah River and an Olympic sized pool complex available only to guests and members of Inlet Cove.

A short walk or brief bike ride leads to Beachwalker Park, named one of the Country’s 10 best beaches. Here you can play, walk or bike along 10 miles of unspoiled beach among Dolphin, Sea Logger Turtles, Pelicans and other sea life.

When tired of the beach, cool off in the newly renovated community pool. Our cottage is a mere 3 minute walk from the pool and adjoining dock along the Kiawah River. Kayak, fish, catch crabs or simply enjoy the pleasure having your morning coffee while watching a morning sunrise over the river marsh; or indulge in a glass of wine while the sun sets.

Inlet Cove is a 30 minute drive from Charleston, SC – one of the country’s most historic and beautiful cities. In addition to viewing the beautiful architecture and sightseeing, Charleston has some of the country’s best dining concentrated in the very walkable downtown area. Closer to home, Freshfields Village is a quick bike ride to restaurants, a Harris Teeter grocery store and shopping.

Back at our pet friendly cottage, you’ll find our renovated, well stocked kitchen and 3 comfortable and nicely appointed bedrooms and two bathrooms.

In the living room we have an HD television, comfortable sofas and plenty of games and books for your evening entertainment. The Master Bedroom features a king sized bed, ensuite bathroom and another HD television.

The first guest room has a queen sized bed, flat screen television. A “jack and jill” bathroom connects with the other guest bedroom with two twin beds and a fourth flat screen television. We have plenty of beach and pool gear including boogie boards, skimmers, buckets, beach chairs and beach cart for your enjoyment.

A final note, while summers are fantastic, Fall and even Winter are wonderful times to enjoy Kiawah’s many biking trails and walks along the beach when fewer people are around and winter daytime temperatures are averaging in the 60s.

We enjoyed our stay in Inlet Cove. This rental was decorated nicely and provided the amenities we needed as a family of five. We will definitely return again someday.

We could not have asked for a better home away from home for our week in Kiawah!

As a family with four young children, we were looking for a house that was clean, big enough to accommodate our family, and had a close enough proximity to the beach and pool. We found all that and more in this perfect house!

Upon walking in, you are greeted exactly how the pictures online portray the house. It was clean and cozy with newer furniture and linens. It was stocked with tons of games, puzzles, and books (mostly adult books vs. children’s).

The house is perfectly positioned on a corner lot area with a pathway leading directly to the pool and dock area. Our boys spent a good amount of time fishing from the dock right there. The pool is great and was never crowded. The walk to the beach was definitely farther than we thought it would we rented bikes for the week and that solved that problem! It was an easy 5 minute bike ride through the pretty neighborhood and over a small bridge. Very easy ride for all of us and fun too!

The beds were all comfortable, but we definitely loved the master bed. It had a foam mattress pad on it that made it extra plush and comfortable.

We only cooked breakfast and lunches while there and had no issues with any of the kitchen supplies. It was well stocked for our needs although we did not do any dinners there, so we can’t speak for big pots and pans, etc.

Overall, we had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed this house tremendously. We would definitely recommend this house and the Inlet Cove area. Without a doubt, we would stay here again!

We really enjoyed our stay at 11 Sundown Bend.It was peaceful and private and we really enjoyed the surrounding nature and bird sounds.We had a surprise when one evening when we went to the river to see the sunset we saw several dolphins very close to us.It was beautifully maintained and we had lots of comfortable beds and chairs.Really enjoyed exploring this beautiful island and also visiting Charleston.The owner was a pleasure to work with and I will certainly recommend this cottage to anyone who comes this way
