About Julie Miler

We are a family of the Lowcounty who fell in love with Kiawah at first blush. In fact, we spent our honeymoon on Kiawah almost 30 years ago and continue to spend family vacation time on Kiawah. Even though we live less than an hour away, being at the beach on Kiawah is still like going to a paradise get-a-way! We are an active family, so we enjoy the many activities that Kiawah offers, especially the golf and tennis. But early morning walks along the beach, catching a sunrise, watching the dolphins play, or just looking for seashells is still our favorite part of the day.

Julie Miler purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Julie Miler chose Kiawah Island

Charleston, SC was voted the #1 tourist destination in the world and we feel that Kiawah is the best family vacation resort island in America! The naturally preserved environment allows one to enjoy the beach and the river marshes.The natural habitats for birds, dolphins, deer,

alligators, and beautiful sunsets will bring you back for more!

What makes this cottage unique

The wide variety of first class activities, the unbelievabe beaches, the miles of paved bike trails, the fantastic amenities, the incredible sunsets............all of these and more allow us to renew our life batteries, build more family memories, and meet wonderful folks from around the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jeanne,

Well, we had another wonderful time vacationing at your beach cottage on Kiawah. What is it now, 12 years in a row that we have stayed there? I guess we are creatures of habit, because we love coming to your Inlet Cove cottage. It is just right for us. And convenient to everything. We met the most delightful couple at the private community pool who are also from Ohio....what a small world. In fact, both he and my husband went to Ohio State! As you know we usually don't walk to the end of the west beach due to my knee, but one day we did and saw 3 dolphins playing in the surf not more than 10 yards away from us. It was like a special show at Seaworld!! Thank you again for "booking" us on the 1st of August, it was the onlhy time we could come this summer. You are so sweet! The place was great. We are looking forward to coming again next summer. Take care. Susan

Great location with tons of activities!

  • 4 of 5

We have visited Kiawah Island several times and it never gets old. There are so many things to do and see. We used the bikes to go all over the island, watched the dolphins, enoyed the beach and pool, went crabbing and took part in some Nature Center activities. As if that wasn't enough we visited the Charleston, the local tea plantation and the shops and concert at Fresh Fields. The cottage we stayed at was clean and worked perfect for our family. The bikes and beach chairs were a nice bonus. Owner response was very good. We would rent here again.

Perfect for a big family

  • 5 of 5

Julie was so easy to work with and the value for a location close to the beach can't be beat. Very comfortable and clean, and owners were super responsive when questions or concerns came up during our stay. The screen porch added a lot of living space and was a peaceful place to spot deer, especially in the evenings. Right on the bike path to the beach and an easy ride to the pool/community pier. Nice, quiet community - thanks for a great week at the beach!

The most dependable vacation you'll ever have. Done it now for 20 years, and will never get tired of it. Have been in this Villa several times, It's beautiful. Totally stocked with everything you need, including 4 bikes! Only place I've stayed that has that. As Arnold said, "I'll be back"

This was a fantastic cottage. The location is ideal as it's close to the beach and the Kiawah River.

  • 5 of 5

It was very helpful to have access to the bikes, boogie boards and beach chairs in the shed. The cottage was clean well-kept and the beds were comfortable.
