The cottage is situated on the marshland, and offers completely unobstructed views of the river from the comfortable main living areas and 2 of the bedrooms. It was renovated in March 2009, including updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, new bathrooms, and new flooring. It is clean and is tastefully decorated in the Balinese/beach cottage style. Internet/WIFI enabled.

• Short walking distance to Kiawah beaches.

25-meter Jr. Olympic swimming pool with separate baby pool, or view the sunsets on

About Susie Oringel

We purchased our cottage on Kiawah Island in summer of 2005, and I began renting it on VRBO during the weeks we were not able to enjoy Kiawah ourselves. In 2007, a friend on nearby Seabrook Island asked me if I would help her rent her villa also. Since I loved helping people plan their vacations in the area, I obtained my South Carolina Property Manager's License and began a business - Kiawah By Owner. I now help rent more than 25 other properties on Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island in addition to our cottage. I look forward to helping you plan your vacation - Susie Oringel 704-277-2912

Battery Re-charge!

  • 5 of 5

You pull into the driveway and catch a glimpse of the view and all of the big city stress melts away. This is by far our favorite location at Kiawah and the view over the river and marsh is spectacular. We watched a pod of dolphins play in the river while enjoying morning coffee. Bike rides, wildlife watching, after dinner walks along the beach, kayak trips along the river, and the all important re-charging of life's batteries for every day life. And it's only 23 miles from Charleston!

Perfect location and incredible views

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in this cottage, 4th time at kiawah. Inlet cove is our favorite and perfect spot...quiet and friendly, close to fresh fields, small general store and road to charleston, wonderful pool and community dock, gated so kids can freely explore on bikes, and we love having our "own house" vs a condo in a building. The views in this unit are amazing- cant describe how peaceful it is to walk in the front door! Wildlife is abundant, even had a bobcat visit:). The property manager, Susie, is great and very attentive. Everything you need is in unit, and if you do need something SUsie will get it to you. The furniture and beds are all comfy and higher end pieces even though not brand new. The only minor improvement could be the bedding, simply because it is time to refresh as the pillows and comforters are showing some wear. Note this unit does not have a grill, so we bring a grill pan. You should definitely rent bikes while on the island for the best experience. We will always try to book this unit when we visit, the view is worth it and Susie's service is excellent.

Best place on Kiawah

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, roomy and comfortable cottage. It is right on the river inlet, so you can sit on the back porch watch dolphins, pelicans, eagles and deer wander by. It is just a few blocks on walking paths to the ocean, the community pool, and a small convince store. The cottage is impeccably clean and Susie's customer service is wonderful. The little cottage community of Inlet Cove also is ideal: it is wooded and charming, without any of the "McMansions" found on other parts of the island. We've stayed several places on Kiawah, but this is our hands-down favorite and go-to weekend getaway.

Sorry to say, I wasn't pleased about this cottage. The first thing I noticed was how dark and dingy the place was, the decor outdated, furniture stained, and it was as though they randomly threw pieces of furniture in here to make due. The master bed was uncomfortable. One sliding door was very difficult to lock, and the master bedroom sliding door didn't lock properly, so we had to use 'the pole' each time. The outdoor lounge chairs were rusty, the floors were dirty and dusty in corners, the front door blinds were dirty, and the mechanisms to open the windows were removed! It's all swampy in the back leading to the river therefore not able to access it. I agree, the view is gorgeous with outstanding sunsets. I was uncomfortable staying here and would not come back. I prefer CLEAN & COMFORTABLE.

Owner's Response: Please take some time to read the many other reviews for this wonderful cottage, including many from renters who continue to return again and again. This review was from a winter rental during an unusually cold and wet period, and this renter's review seems to have been clouded by the weather. They emailed two days into their vacation saying "this place is nice" and they even asked to return later in the spring. After that email, we didn't hear from them until after they checked out. Had we heard of these or any other concerns while these guests were at the cottage (except for providing river access), we would have addressed them promptly. We pride ourselves in providing a clean, comfortable vacation for all who choose Kiawah Island and this cottage in particular. You can expect that your experience will be more like our many other happy, repeat renters.
