About the property

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

Riverfront cottage with stunning western view. Enjoy spectacular sunsets across a beautiful tidal river; relax with a glass of wine on the screened porch; watch dolphins 35 feet away on a daily basis from the deck of our cottage.

Feel like a swim? The large Inlet Cove pool is a short walk away (about 75 yards). The boat dock is next to the pool area and is great for fishing, shrimping and crabbing. Launch your kayak or canoe from the dock or rent one from the island.

Inlet Cove is a gated area located at the west end of the island directly on the Kiawah River. Inlet Cove cottages include a 25 meter swimming pool, boat dock and cookout area. Paved leisure trails allow quick access to the beach and West Beach Village.

Our smoke-free and recently updated cottage has numerous amenities, including wireless high-speed internet, 32' flat screen TV in living room, two DVD players, and additional flat screen TVs in both the master and 2nd bedroom. There are books, games and movies available on our shelves for relaxing after a day on the beach.

The Master Bedroom has a King bed and adjacent full bath. The 2nd bedroom has a Queen bed. The 3rd bedroom has two twin beds. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms share a full bath. The Kitchen is spacious with a breakfast area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Carma,

I can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at your cottage.

This was by far my favorite vacation ever!

Your location is absolutely perfect! The proximity to the pool and dock is ideal! We were comfortable sending the boys (9 & 7) ahead and meeting them down there. The isolation of the Inlet Cove neighborhood made us perfectly comfortable sending the boys on bike rides by themselves "staying in the neighborhood".

Every day we saw the dolphins swimming by. These were the most beautiful sunsets I've every seen. So serene, colorful and relaxing. I would sit on the porch until 1am listening to the night time. One night I had the rare opportunity to watch a bobcat walk right under your cottage!!

Your cottage is adorable and clean. The kitchen was well stocked which I appreciated because we enjoy cooking and have special dietary needs. The grill was very appreciated. It's also wonderful to be able to do laundry - your washing machine and dryer are clean and convenient!

We took full advantage of the resort amenities as well. I am an avid tennis player and enjoyed private lessons as well as drill sessions. My husband, of course, played golf. While we enjoyed our morning adult activities the children loved Kamp Kiawah. The counselors were wonderful with the children and the boys were disappointed when I picked them up each day at 12:30! We also played family bingo one evening, which my mother-in-law enjoyed, took a night time beach walk with a conservationist, and enjoyed a "Turtle Talk" presentation with another conservationist.

We took a 3 1/2 hour family kayak trip on the river and through the marsh, which I strongly recommend - what a great time and fabulous workout!

We loved bike riding everywhere. Alligator rentals was a great recommendation for bike rentals, we really appreciated it!

Carma, thank you so much for opening your home to us. It was wonderful! I hope we get to come back regularly.

Kindest regards,

An ideal location

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasure it has been for many years to be at this cottage in Inlet Cove, a favorite location after spending time in many other places on the island. It is a comfortable, attractive home and a wonderful location looking out over the river to the stunning and ever changing marsh. Watching the sunset from the cottage is always a delightful moment in the day. The cottage is steps from a community pool and a dock making it easy to launch and return by kayak and for crabbing. Minutes away, the beach is an important part of the Kiawah experience. One of the delights of being on Kiawah is the ability to travel the island by bike on the beach or a delightful bike path. The Sanctuary, East Beach and the Golf Courses offer pleasant diversions. Freshfield Village for shopping and restaurants is a short bike ride from the cottage. We always look forward to our return to this memorable location in Inlet Cove.

Fantastic view and family friendly vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in Kiawah Island was fabulous. The location was perfect- you can either walk or bike to the beach. Watching the sunset from the back porch each evening was a delight. The house was clean and comfortable. Carma was a very responsive host. Renting from Carma was very easy. She gave us details about the community and suggested some activities in nearby Charleston. The community pool and pier was right around the corner. We would stay here again!

Perfect Spot on the River

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed on Kiawah for almost three decades and this is the best view ever with sunsets so spectacular dinner plans were scheduled so we didn’t miss a single one! Convenient to the beach and the pool, we had a blast with our family. Renting from Carma was easy and the cottage was super-comfy, well equipped and in great condition. We will be back!!

Great property with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here several times. The villa is comfortable and very convenient to the pool and dock. The best thing about it is the screened porch, dining table and the wonder view over the Kiawah River. We have spent many hours sitting on the porch watching the tide rise and fall in the river. Definitely will stay here again.

Great vacation at Inlet Cove 9

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our three daughters, three sons-in-law and four grandchildren just came back from Kiawah and a wonderful week at Inlet Cove. We had two houses, one co-owned by our daughter and the one we rented. We had six people in each house and it worked out great. We had an amazing view of the river from our screened porch, bedrooms and living room. We never even turned on the Living room TV. We watched the river instead with lots of dolphins, kayakers, paddle boarders and boats. We were a one minute walk to the pool. The house was well equipped, clean, well furnished and a great location. I'm sure we will get back to Kiawah again and our first choice will be to rent 9 Inlet Cove again. The landlord was a pleasure to work with, as well. All around a great experience!!!

9 Inlet Cove October Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed in various homes in Inlet Cove for the past 20 years and 9 Inlet Cove was the best experience we have had thus far. The rennovations to the unit, the furnishings, the kitchen amenities, the original art....all added to the total experience for us. Plus, the river location is perfect for watching wildlife, kayakers, sunsets.

We look forward to a future visit and stay at 9 Inlet Cove on Kiawah Island, our "Happy Place".
