West Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

Our Inlet Cove cottage in West Beach is a peaceful spot, an 8-10 minute walk to the 10 miles of golden sand beaches of Kiawah. If you haven't been to Kiawah, you haven't been to the beach! It is truly a paradise of maritime forest, 30 miles of bicycle paths, unsurpassed river, ocean, and marsh views, and a beach that can be enjoyed at any phase of the tide. We fell in love with Kiawah, and we know you will, too!

If tennis and golf are your passions, you couldn't find a better place to enjoy each. Kiawah's 5 golf courses were designed by Pete Dye, Tom Fazio, Clyde Johnston, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. The famous Ocean Course was Host Site for the 1991 Ryder Cup Matches, the 2007 Senior PGA Championship, and the 2012 PGA Championship. The 2021 PGA is slated for Kiawah, too.

Tennis Resorts online has rated Kiawah #1 in the 2015 list of Best U.S. Tennis Resorts. Both clay and hard courts are available, along with fully stocked pro shops.

Our cottage is fully equipped with everything you will need for an unforgettable stay. A 50 in. Samsung TV in the living room is accompanied by a smart dvd player to access Netflix, Pandora, and Hulu, along with a bluetooth capable speaker bar. The kitchen has been totally renovated (January 2015). Cable wireless internet service is available, too. You can watch the ebb and flow of the tidal creek in the backyard from the screened-in porch or deck, or sit in the double glider at the edge of the house. Inlet Cove boasts a 25 meter swimming pool and fishing/boat dock enjoyed by our guests at no extra charge. Come and see why Kiawah is our new second home!

Beautiful cottage convenient to beach and pool

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at Sukhavati. We love this cottage. It is beautifully decorated, well-stocked and very clean. it is a short walk or bike ride to the beach or the pool and dock. The owner is very attentive to your needs and keeping her cottage well-maintained. Love the gas grill on the deck- especially since it rained during our grilling times this year. We had a great week and hope to stay here next year!

Loved cottage and location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this adorable cottage and could not have had a better experience. Not only is it furnished tastefully and comfortably, but is in a easily accessibly location. The beach is less than 1/4 mile with easy parking and a short walk to the beautiful beach. The pool is clean and within walking distance. We especially enjoyed meeting other folks vacationing at the sunset each evening at the dock. We are coming back in September and are looking forward to that visit.

Wonderful Cottage for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The location of Sukhavati cottage is perfect with a short walk or even quicker bike ride to the pool or the beach. We stay in Inlet Cove every summer and found this house to be one of the best. The kitchen is updated and fully stocked. We didn't need to bring anything. Even beach towels are provided. The inlet behind the cottage is a guide to high and low tides.

We stayed on the island the whole week and enjoyed several of the restaurants owned by the resort. Both lunch and dinner at the Atlantic Room were delicious. Jasmine Porch for dinner was also very good. We especially enjoyed eating at Cherrywood BBQ then walking behind the restaurant to see five gators. Loggerhead Grill at the Sanctuary was our favorite for lunch.

We rent bikes each year from Alligator Bikes and love riding all over the island. Along the bike path beside Kiawah Island Pkwy. we have twice seen bobcats, this year three little ones, and many deer. Bikes are the best way to see the island up close.

The owner was so pleasant to work with and very prompt to answer emails. I would recommend this location to anyone.

Perfect Family Vacation - better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

Family of four (boys are 7 and 11) had an incredible week at this rental. I was skeptical of all the positive reviews. This is one of the few times the experience exceeded our high expectations. The cottage is nicer/cleaner than the pictures. Kitchen and beach shed are fully stocked. We ended up cooking at home the majority of the time because the kitchen was so fully stocked and easy. We appreciated the beach chairs, umbrella and skim board (boys loved it).

We rented bikes from Alligator Bikes and enjoyed the short 3-5 minute ride to the beach. The proximity to the beach, convenience store, the inlet cove pool and fishing dock and shopping center allowed us to ride our bikes everywhere. The boys caught fish and crabs each night around sunset from the dock. So fun and beautiful.

The stay could not have been easier and I would definitely recommend this rental. Carol provided all the necessary access information well in advance and because we did not experience one issue during our stay -- it was not necessary to reach out.

The rental exceeded expectations and was better than advertised. We will be returning.

Clean, well-organized and supplied villa

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Carol's villa, backing on an inlet off of the Kiawah River (so you can tell when it is high or low tide.) Everything you will need is supplied, and Carol has done an excellent job of organizing and of informing her guests. The decor is intimate, and this villa truly makes you feel at home.

Awesome Vacation Rental and Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It was a beautiful place in a beautiful setting. We felt at home amidst the beautiful palmetto trees and the natural beauty that surrounded us. The house was nicely decorated with all the amenities we could want. The whole family enjoyed its proximity to the beach as well as how close it was to Charleston. Thank you!!!
