Relax while enjoying the sunset over the picturesque Kiawah River from the deck of our Inlet Cove Cottage. Ten miles of pristine beach are just 400 yards away. The difference is in the details; recent totally renovation, beautiful décor, interesting art, great entertainment options, well-appointed gourmet kitchen, high speed wireless access, exceptional river views from the screened in porch and both decks.

Our cottage has been completely renovated. It received the highest rating possible – Platinum – which is earned by less than 5% of the properties on the Island. The bathrooms and kitchen were completely modeled withand all new furniture and bedding.

It boasts an ideal central location near the best private community pool on the island (with a kiddie pool too) and bath house along with a magnificent dock on the river where you can fish, catch crabs, boat or kayak. A short walk (or you may prefer to bike) along a tree-covered leisure trail takes you to the West Beach Village (with an ice cream shop, casual dining, an arcade, shopping), a General Store or the beach.

Pools, Pools and more Pools. Besides our community pool at Inlet Cove you have access to the pool at Night Heron Park which is heated (Mar-May & Oct-Nov) and chilled in the summer. In the summer two amazing kids water parks are available with giant slides and water that spills and spouts in every imaginable way. The water parks are located in West Beach at the Tennis Center and at Night Heron Park. All the pools are complimentary.

We have a convenient front desk location within the Resort making check-in and key pick up fast and easy. Should any problems arise during your stay, the cottage comes with an on-site property manager. In the event of an emergency, they can be reached twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

A wide open floor plan - starts with the gourmet kitchen that flows into the dining area and living room, complete with fireplace. This is a great place to gather after a wonderful day at the pool, beach, golfing, kayaking or playing tennis. The desk has plenty of room to spread out and to access the Internet through a high speed WiFi connection. The living room opens up to a large screened-in porch with a patio table and chairs – grab a drink to watch the fabulous sunset over the Kiawah River.

You can also enjoy the river views from the lower deck while BBQ’ing on a Vermont Castings grill or just relax in one of the rocking chairs or hammock. You might catch dolphins playing or feeding in the river.

Each bedroom features new furniture and mattresses, TV and DVD player. The master bedroom has a king size bed and adjacent full bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed and shares a full bathroom with the third bedroom which comes with two twin beds.

Come visit soon.

About Rob & Candy Lockwood

We’ve always gravitated to the water…especially the ocean. We even got married in the Florida Keys on a sailboat as the sun was setting. It’s seems to have always been that way. My wife grew up on the South Shore of Long Island and spent her free time at the beach on Fire Island. I have lived a good deal of my life on an island in Florida. We are currently landlocked in Winston Salem NC and this cottage gives us a way to get back to the beach more often.

Rob & Candy Lockwood purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Rob & Candy Lockwood chose Kiawah Island

Kiawah is like no other place we've ever visited. It has a unique feel and we love the 'low country' pace. We go everywhere by bicycle and typically don't leave the island once we've arrived.

What makes this cottage unique

We have created some wonderful family memories on Kiawah. Our girls learned to ride bicycles, kayak and hunt for wildlife on Kiawah…and they also developed a love for ice cream as the shop is just a short bike ride away. Each season offers something different and our family was surprised to find out that we enjoyed the fall and winter months as much as we do spring and summer. No matter when you plan on visiting, we know you will fall in love with Kiawah Head too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you what a wonderful cottage you have in Kiawah! Everything was fantastic - from your booking procedure, to check-in at Resort Quest and all the way through the week.

The cottage was just perfect - clean, comfortable and complete with all the amenities we could have wanted. We had a great time.

We have stayed in Inlet Cove and Sparrow Pond the last several years, and without hesitation I can say that your cottage itself and its location in Inlet Cove was superior to anything we've found thus far.

We hope to be back next year!

Thanks again for a great week.

Wonderful, Wonderful

My family (husband, daughter, son-in-law and 2 granddaughters) and I just returned from a wonderful week at the Lockwood's charming cottage in Inlet Cove. Everything was just as described. The cottage is well-maintained and decorated beautifully. It was very comfortable and fairly well stocked. The cottage is well situated to walk to the beach or the pool. We loved having Freshfields close by and made several trips there during the week. Had a wonderful meal at Chez Fish on John's Island. The check-in and check-out process through Resort Quest couldn't have been easier. I would highly recommend this property. We all can't wait to go back.

We enjoyed two fabulous weeks at the Lockwood's

beautiful cottage on Kiawah over the last week of

August and first week of September. The cottage

and its amenities are first class, and it is a more

than welcoming retreat! We vacationed with our

twin toddlers, mother, and mother-in-law - and by

the time we pulled out of the driveway to head back

home, we honestly felt like we were leaving home. I

highly recommend this property to anyone looking

for first-class accommodations and a home-away-

from home while on vacation. And the location is

so convenient to the beach, the pool, Freshfield's,

and it even shortens the drive into Charleston

(versus staying in farther on the island!). Thank

you so much for opening your home to our family!

June 2009 visit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in June 2009 and found the cottage to be first class. This was our sixth visit to the island but the first time staying in Inlet Cove. The accommodations were among the best we stayed in during our many visits to Kiawah. The cottage is well equipped and furnished nicely. The unit was very, very clean and well maintained. The unit is large and is plenty spacious for families. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook. The location is great and the views are spectacular. We liked having the gas grill for meals. We loved the Kiawah River view and had a change to kayak several times and saw dolphins on one of our kayak trips. The community pool was great and never crowded. Be sure to go to the community dock for spectacular sunsets.

A wonderful get-away late March-early April 2009

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, spotless home was a perfect vacation rental for our family of five (kids aged 4, 6 and 9). We loved looking out over the trees and river from the screened porch at breakfast and dinner, and cooked many delicious meals in the gourmet kitchen. The kids loved their rooms, and the master bedroom/bath was luxurious and comfortable. We all loved the convenience of being close to the river and the beach, but still enjoying the quiet, relaxed part of the island. The sunsets from the dock were lovely (complete with dolphins), as was stargazing on the beach. The grocery store in Fresh Fields Village only a short drive away had everything we needed for a terrific week on Kiawah. Wireless internet (note: open connection, not password protected) worked without a hitch. Bikes ordered ahead of time were waiting for us when we arrived. Not a single glitch in this vacation! (One very rainy day ended up giving us a great trip to Charleston aquarium) This was a beautiful home away from home. We can't wait to come back!

We have just returned from two spectacular weeks on Kiawah Island and want to thank the Lockwood's for the pleasure of renting their fabulous cottage to us. Inviting,clean,quiet, and very comfortble. You really do think of everything to make newcomers feel welcome (we loved your walking directions to the beach)! We waited out cool temperatures by many excursions into Charleston (we were able to make the trip in about 35 minutes) and even down to Beaufort. And when temps warmed, we walked the beach and enjoyed all that it offers. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Hope to be back someday soon.

Guestbook Comment

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lockwoods' cottage. Recently renovated, it offered everything we needed to entertain our family, from a fully-stocked kitchen, to a beautiful setting convenient to the beach and nearby shopping.

I especially enjoyed reading in the hammock on the back porch, watching the

kayaks drift by at sunset.

Also, I can't say enough about the Lockwoods' hospitality. We felt right at home. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a first class beach get-away.

Kiawah is a paradise for children. It’s nestled within 10,000 acres of maritime forests and tidal marshes and is one of the East Coast’s most secluded stretches of beach. Nature is Kiawah’s most alluring asset. Enjoy an abundance of things to do, including 30 miles of paved biking and hiking trails that wind through parks and nature preserves. The 10 miles of beach, the Nature Center, Night Heron Park with its basketball and soccer fields are all close by. At night, chase crabs on the beach or look for shooting stars. Kayak, swim, boogie board, build sand castles, hunt for star fish and sand dollars or go for a bike ride on the beach at sunrise.
