About the property

This lovely cottage has a cozy feel, and you can enjoy a tropical, wooded view of Palms and Oaks from the perfectly situated screened porch. We love to have our morning coffee and plan our days on the porch. The updated kitchen boasts granite countertops and new cabinets, perfect for home cooking, and the bathrooms were renovated in November 2014. It was tastefully furnished, and with a new 50-inch TV in the living room. It has everything you’ll need to get your special vacation underway. Internet/WIFI enabled.


Inlet Cove offers an exceptional location with many conveniences to make your vacation or business retreat a memorable one:

• Short walking distance to Kiawah beaches.

• Full access to Inlet Cove’s newly renovated community pool and dock. Enjoy a

25-meter Jr. Olympic swimming pool with separate baby pool, or watch the sun set on

the river from the rocking chairs on the dock.

• Easy access to bike and walking paths.

• Nearby activities for all ages, including golf, tennis, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding,

fishing, and much more.

• Bike, kayak and other rentals available.

• Night Heron Park offers fun family activities for day and evenings

• For a fee, Kiawah Island Resort offers golf, tennis and other resort activities to

non-resort guests, with the exception of their pools and fitness facilities.

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

Beautiful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We love Kiawah! This was another beautiful week for our family. We have rented other places before. This was the least fancy, but we still enjoyed our time. Thank you!

Updates on decor and very convenient to all sorts of fun on the island.

  • 4 of 5

This is our 2nd time here. Love the comfy beds and details of new granite in the kitchen and bath. Some details could be improved: no plastic spatula, very few spoons left and all knives needed sharpening which we did on arrival. Some pots were scratched which is a shame but I'm sure that's hard to avoid. Great location for us to use our Kayaks at the dock. Wish the pool was open this week like it was prior visits to Kiawah but we saw it open the day before we left. Lovely attentive owner who has always been gracious when we have stayed.

Owner's Response: So glad you decided to come back to 78 Inlet Cove cottage and had a wonderful time. Thank you for letting us know about the missing spatula and spoons. We have re-stocked the kitchen so future guests won't have this inconvenience. We look forward to welcoming you back on future trips.

Perfect Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a quiet getaway to enjoy Kiawah Island. This property was perfect for what we were looking for. The rental was clean and everything we needed was provided. We enjoyed drinking coffee on the screened porch in the morning and riding our bikes over to the dock area to enjoy the sunsets! It was an easy to walk to the beach as well as easy access to ride our bikes on the beach. We definitely recommend this rental property and will go back again.

Great Get Away in Inlet Cove

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at 78 Inlet Cove. The place was just like the pictures. Unit was modern and clean. It had all the amenities of home. It is located close to everything on Kiawah Island. Easy to bike along beach or ride to Freshfields. Inlet Cove has dock on river which we used for fishing. We would recommend this unit and would stay here again.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at this property. It was perfect for our young family of 4. The house came with everything we needed. The kitchen was stocked with the utensils and appliances you need for cooking at home. It was clean and very relaxing. Another perk was getting there and there already being some TP, paper towel and garbage bags for us to use instead of having to run out to the grocery store asap. So convenient.

We had some trouble with the TV when we tried to turn it on and found a youtube tutorial in the house book that showed us exactly how to fix it! Very simple. It was a great stay.

We definitely recommend renting bikes as there are so many bike paths and it make it super easy to get to the beach and pool.

There is a great little restaurant just a short bike ride away through the squiggly path. We ate breakfast there and it was delicious. We wanted to go back. They also had amazing bloody mary's. So good! I think it was called "Southern Kitchen". Make sure to get breakfast there when you are in town.

Overall it's a great place and we would definitely stay there again.

Inlet Cove Kiawah Island

  • 4 of 5

We rented 78 Belmeade Road inlet Cove. We had a great time. The property is close to the beach and pool. We especially enjoyed the community dock area on the Kiawah River very beautiful and serene. The home itself was comfortable (just a little dark) We had plenty of hot water for 5 after beach showers which seems like a minor item but was really appreciated.

This was a good time of year in Kiawah the weather was great. We hope to be back

Owner's Response: We are glad you had such a wonderful time on Kiawah and at this Inlet Cove cottage. One of the wonderful features of Kiawah is its maritime forest. Also this cottage has a comfortable screened porch and deck for guests to enjoy. The combination of the shady trees around the cottage and the screened porch means there is not a window directly facing the living room. We look forward to your return.
