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. The living area also has a new 42” HD flat screen TV over the fireplace and the compact CD player is IPod compatible.

Want to Play? You will get preferred tee times with up to 25% every round of golf. You will save up up to 50% off court times and also get preferred court reservations.

With 'Full Resort Privileges' you will also have access to the Business Center, complimentary door-to-door transportation service throughout Kiawah and special discounts on adventure and kids programs.

It will be hard to find another cottage that has as much – the view, the comfort and all the amenities – so come join us at Kiawah!

No pets and no smoking, please.

Activities:

Kiawah is truly a private paradise with over 10 miles of golden beaches, over 30 miles of leisure paths thru maritime forests, unsurpassed river, ocean and marsh views and a beach that can be enjoyed at any time of the day.

If golf and tennis are your passion, you’ve come to the perfect vacation spot – Kiawah’s 5 golf courses were designed by Nicklaus, Dye, Fazio, Johnston and Player. The famous Ocean Course was Host to the 2007 Senior PGA Championship and is planning for the 2012 PGA Championship. Tennis magazine has rated Kiawah the #1 Greatest US Tennis Resort. Both clay and hard courts are available.

Some of the best red fish and flounder fishing spots await you at Kiawah. The best fishing pond on the Island is only steps from our cottage. The Kiawah River is a great place to kayak so bring your own or rent one while you are here.

The island has over 15 dining options (grocery delivery too) and many places to shop. But if you want more, Charleston, with its southern charm, plantations and history, is only 20 miles away. Charleston’s attractions include the Carolina Aquarium, Children’s Museum, IMAX theater, a historic district, ghost tours, great shopping, sightseeing and award winning restaurants.

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

Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at your home in Kiawah last week. The house was everything we thought it would be and more. Very beautiful with unreal views of the river. We are very interested in renting from you again for next year. I will be in touch when we decide on a week. Thanks again

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I just spent a week at the Lockwood's cottage in Inlet Cove. I have stayed at a number of locations on Kiawah and this is the best. Very quiet and out of the way. Great beach access and on the Kiawah River. Loved the house and I can't think of anything we needed which wasn't there. Lockwood's are great to deal with.

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this roomy, nicely equipped cottage. It was clean and comfortable, and it was in a perfect location to enjoy the the beautiful Kiawah bike trails. We really appreciated the use of the beach chairs and the beach cart for lugging our stuff to the beach (just a short walk from the cottage). Spending time in the screened porch was a relaxing way to start and end the day. We loved the place, and highly recommend it. And it is so close to Charleston for a great day trip, and the Freshfields market for supplies/food. We enjoyed several nearby restaurants and there are many places to choose from. During the booking process, I really appreciated chatting with the owner by phone and he answered any questions that I had. It was an easy check in via Resort Quest too. This place felt like home, and we hope to get back soon. Many thanks to the Lockwood family!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Night Heron Park & Nature Center
Car: recommended

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.

Notes:
When we come to the Island we like to bring as little as possible and that’s why we’ve made sure that just about everything you need (except food, clothing & beach towels) is ready and waiting. The kitchen is a gourmet cook’s dream and comes with dishwasher, toaster, coffeemaker, dishes, silverware, pots & pans, all new appliances and many extras (including a blender and margarita glasses). All bedroom and bath linens are provided as well as a washer & dryer so you don’t need to bring clothes for a week. The cottage also is stocked at the beginning of the year with boogie boards, beach chairs, beach toys, booster seat with shoulder straps, a pack-n-play and a beach cart that makes getting everything you need to the beach easier. Bicycles, inline skates and kayaks can be rented right on the island. So travel light and take advantage of everything that is waiting for you at the cottage.
