About Mark Ethridge

I'm a journalist and writer. Kay is a potter. We live most of the time in Charlotte which has been our home for more than 40 years. We also have ties to Michigan. Kay finds inspiration in Kiawah's natural surroundings and incorporates things like pine cones, Spanish moss and sea shells into her work. I find Kiawah equally inspiring - although it's difficult to write there because there's too much fun to be had outside.

Mark Ethridge purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Mark Ethridge chose Kiawah Island

Kay and I have been beach house owners for more than 30 years. In 2001, we visited friends at Kiawah. Within a week, we had put our North Carolina beach house on the market and had made on offer on 61 Sunlet Bend - a wonderful cottage on the river that was right across the street from our friends. We and our two children have been enjoying it regularly since then. Surfing, kayaking and dining out in Charleston have become passions.

What makes this cottage unique

Most Inlet Cove houses have pretty much the same interior design, number of bedrooms, etc. This cottage has been well-maintained and we've kept it fresh, updating the front deck and stairs, adding an underneath deck and back stairs and, just this spring, having the entire interior painted and adding updated lighting. But what really makes our cottage special is it's location - near the pool and the dock but not so near that it's noisy -- and an easy bike ride to the beach, to the convenience store, to the market, coffee house and shops at Freshfields. And because it's near the main gate, it's one of Kiawah's closest neighborhood to Charleston.

A Room with a View!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing you see when you open the door is the spectacular view of the river. We were immediately drawn to the balcony ... unpacking had to wait!! The condo was large, clean, comfortable, and well equipped. There is expanded cable and wifi and access to Netflex if you have an account. There are also two hammocks below the deck that we enjoyed and being one door down from the pool was also nice as at times the beach was a little windy and cool (typical April) -- the pool is protected somewhat from the wind by the vegetation and pool house. We rented bikes and took advantage of the expansive bike trails on the island. The wooded trails were truly nature trails as we saw raccoons, deer, and of course alligators!! If you are physically inclined, bikes are a must to truly experience the island. Alligator Bikes cost $35 for the week (they magically were parked under the deck when we arrived--and disappeared when we left) but I'm sure any of the rentals are great (Island Bikes was in the neighborhood and they were kind enough to help us adjust our seats as we were struggling with the latch).

We ate at Cherrywood BBQ @ Osprey Point and the BBQ Nachos and their Mac & Cheese were worth the calories! The Tattooed Moose on John's Island was interesting and also excellent (my niece had the Duck (yes I said Duck) Club and it was so good she wouldn't share)!! Also recommend the Roy Barth tennis clinics at the Sanctuary--they have a variety of classes to chose from and I learned a lot. Roy was actually teaching the class before mine!!

The Ethridge's were extremely nice and accommodating and very quickly responded to any questions that we had--"NO" waiting for hours for a returned call!

As I'm sure you've guessed by now, we highly recommend this property!!

Stunning Location!

  • 5 of 5

Certainly one of our nicest family vacations in years! This home in Inlet Cove really sets itself apart by the incredibly beautiful lot it sits on. It is tucked well back off the cul de sac and is practically 'encased' by Live Oaks and Magnolias. It really gave the feeling of staying in tree house and has a breathtaking view of the Kiawah River off the back porch. The unit is one lot over from the swimming pool and community dock which was convenient for the kids and watching the unforgettable sunsets. It is very well-maintained and had everything we needed for an amazing week. Looking around, we were convinced we got the nicest one in the neighborhood. Highly recommended!

Wonderful week at #61 Inlet Cove

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is beautiful and well maintained. All of us enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider the cottage next year if we return. There were only a few small issues which I'll list only because the owner said he had just started renting this unit this year, and I want to stress they were mostly minor inconveniences.

The guest bathroom - The sink faucet was really hard to turn on. We were all seniors so it was an issue for all of us. Also the you couldn't keep water in the sink, it would drain out.

Cabinet space - We really appreciated all the spices and food items that were available to us but it was hard for us to find space for our own items. We didn't need a lot of space but maybe a little more would been nice.

Again the cottage was great

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. I believe we resolved the sink issue. Cabinet space in Inlet Cove is definitely at a premium! We'll try to do a better job of arranging the kitchen cabinets to leave more room for guests items.
