Our cottage includes resort privileges at no charge to you since we use Kiawah Island Golf Resorts as our property manager.

Our recently renovated Kiawah Cottage features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an updated kitchen, living room and dining room. The kitchen has a breakfast bar and granite counter tops with under cabinet lighting. The entire house with exception of the bathrooms has engineered hardwood floors. The kitchen also has a double gas oven range. Other appliances includes a refrigerator with icemaker, microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, plates, silverware, and other related objects.

The bathrooms were recently renovated with new tile floors and tile bath areas. Both bathroom vanities have granite counter tops. The Master Bathroom vanity has double sinks. The Master Bathroom has a walk-in shower with both a walled showerhead and a handheld showerhead. The other bathroom has a tub with shower.

We recently purchased new living room furniture. New lighting was installed throughout the cottage. Ceiling fans were installed in each bedroom, over the dining room table and in the living room. Flat screen TVs are located in each bedroom and a new 50-inch HD television was mounted over the renovated fireplace. New living room furniture was recently purchased and pictures will be updated shortly. We also installed a new on demand hot water system. The Master Bedroom features a King Size Bed, the second bedroom has Queen Size Bed, and third bedroom has two Twin Size Beds. There is ample closet and dresser space in all bedrooms. The cottage sleeps six adults.

The cottage comes with high speed secured internet service through Comcast. The internet name and password will be provided to you at check-in.

A washer and dryer is also located in the utility closet in the kitchen for our guests use.

Our Kiawah Cottage is located in the Inlet Cove gated community. It is located close to the beach and offers a lush green forest view. Inlet Cove has a private community pool, which includes a kiddie pool and bathhouse. Only Inlet Cove owners and their guests have access to this private community pool. There is also a deep-water dock and a kayak launch area. You can bring your own kayaks or rent them on the island. In the Inlet Cove community pool location is also a cookout area. You can use the deck area to view fabulous sunsets or watch the dolphins swim in the river.

Our Cottage features an outdoor enclosed shower area that has both hot and cold water. This is beneficial for the days you spend at the beach to wash off the sand.

A new back staircase was built in 2017 which leads to a wood deck under the cottage with picnic table and gas grill. An outdoor fan is over the picnic table to help keep bugs away.

There is plenty to do throughout Kiawah Island, including in Inlet Cove. There are an abundance of hiking and biking trails throughout the island. Our cottage comes with four new 26 inch beach cruiser bicycles for our guests to use. We do not provide bike helmets but ask that you use the locks provided for each bike. If additional bikes are needed we can supply you with phone numbers for various bike rental companies in the area. There are also areas for you to fish and crab in, whether from the Inlet Cove community dock or the pond located across from the Inlet Cove 2nd gate entrance. You can even charter a boat in Bohicket Marina, which is only a few miles away heading towards Seabrook Island. There are also restaurants at Bohicket Marina.

Being located on West Beach, our cottage is also conveniently located close to Freshfields, about one mile away, an open-air mall that has restaurants, retail stores and a grocery story.

Kiawah Island boasts over ten miles of pristine beaches, which are rated as one of the top ten beaches in North America by various travel magazines. It is only a four minute walk from our cottage to the beach. To get to the beach, we suggest you take the bike path two cottages away (take a left at the end of our driveway) and cross Beachwalker Dr. Continue on path to Duneside Rd. Take a right on Duneside Rd and pass the small community pool on your right. Continue on Duneside Rd to the bike racks which are on right side of road directly across from Duneside Villa. Head towards Duneside Villa and take the Boardwalk between 1115 and 1116 Duneside Villa. This leads to Boardwalk No 1 to the beach. Although you will need to take your own towels to the beach, there is a Beach Wonder Wheel Cart located in the underneath locked storage shed along with 4 new beach chairs, beach umbrella, umbrella anchor, boogie boards and beach toys for your use.

There is also a seated viewing area just west of the pool where you can witness gorgeous sunsets or dolphins swimming in the river. The complex also has a screened building with picnic tables and chairs in case you like to have lunch at the pool.

Since our cottage comes with full resort amenities, in addition to the Inlet Cove community pool, there are a few other pools you will have access to. Night Heron Park pool is heated in late March until May, and also in October and November. During the summer this pool is chilled for a refreshing dip in the hot weather.

Adults can also use the adult’s only pool at the Tennis Club.

All the pools and water parks are complementary to our guests.

Beautiful property- perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this cottage for 6 days with our young son. The home is clean and updated and had everything we needed. We were steps away from the beach and rented bikes from Alligator Bikes for the week- exploring all the bike trails as well as riding on the beach which was amazing. The pools are wonderful when you have a little one so having resort access was great. We highly recommend!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the end of July through the first week of August 2017. House was nicely located close to the beach, very clean inside, and fully stocked with anything you might need to make your own dinners.

The owners were very responsive to any questions that I had.

Amazing Time

  • 5 of 5

To summarize this trip, Amazing.... just minutes from the beach and incredible community that includes family fun and class. The resort community offers something for everybody. The nature experience is intense. Biking, riding waves and nature all are key elements to a great trip. It is a true southern experience for those Northerns that dare. The beach experience was amazing sat out at the hotel beach with waiter service on the beach. All around great time had by all family members. For low key or sophiscated this property delivers.

Best all around

  • 5 of 5

So many positive things to says about this location. We were just a short stroll over to the beach. We rented bikes and would get up early and bike on the beach. Twice we had the lucky opportunity to be around when the Turtle Patrol released baby turtles that otherwise would not have made it to the water. The volunteers were not only patient with questions, but willing to give out information such as never leave a hole when you leave the beach because if a turtle falls in racing to the water it probabky won't get out.

We would then bike to Fresh Fields, the shopping hub, and have coffee and breakfast. It's about a mile and a half away.

We had access to three pools! The adult pool we never tried because we had a three year old. The Night Heron pool we found to be overcrowded (although with a nonswimming 2 year old we loved it last year), with too much going on. It's two miles approximately from the cottage so you can bike there. No need to bring towels. Our favorite pool was at the Straw Market. Maybe a mile away. There were noticeably fewer people and by 4 pm things begin to get shady. It was great for our family.

The owners allow you to use their boogie boards and other child friendly toys. There's an outside shower with hot and cold water along with a hose for cleaning off beach things. There was enough things to start us out as far as trash bags, paper towels, detergent and dishwasher cleaner. There were plenty of coffee filters and even a One pot bag of coffee. There was soap and shampoo In The bathrooms. I think the owners are generous in sharing books and movies while you are there. My one complaint would be the living room furniture needs a cleaning. I never wanted to sit on any of it. But it is the beach. We had a wonderful time thanks to the owners.

By the way, don't take the pools for granted. The first year we vacationed in Kiawah we had a sad, tiny neighborhood pool, much smaller than the one you will walk pass. If you have kids you will want to rent from someone who offers that amenity.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at 103 Inlet Cove in the Kiawah Sanctuary Resort. The space was perfect for the 6 of us (2 kids, 4 adults). We loved all of the extras (buckets, puzzles, games), which my kids enjoyed thoroughly during our down time. During our stay, we had some minor maintenance issues, and we cannot thank Ed and Cathy Kane enough for their responsiveness to the issues. They were resolved very quickly, and Ed even called the maintenance team for us to expedite the service. We highly recommend renting bikes, which we loved as it was our primary means of travel during our stay. Having the resort privileges was such a huge advantage! We used all of the pools, dined at multiple restaurants on site, used the fitness center, and participated in the kids' activities. Thank you again for renting your beautiful home to us!
