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.

• Fresh Fields Village (less than 3 miles).

• Nature watching - Dolphins, gators, waterfowl and other birds.

• 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

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.

Great Spring Break Get Away on Kiawah Island

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Kiawah Island! The place was darling, updated and perfect for my husband and I and our 15 y/o daughter! Beach and pool were a short walk or bike ride away. Beach was beautiful. Pool was lovely and quiet!! ;) Susie went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed! Don't forget to pack your beach chairs!!! Oops!!

Tons of great restaurants nearby along w/ a wonderful shopping area - Freshfields! The grocery store there was awesome!! Charleston made for a fantastic day trip and only 45 minutes away!!! We'll be back for sure!!

Near Perfect - wonderful get away!

  • 5 of 5

This long weekend was near perfect. The home has been recently refurbished and the kitchen and common areas were well appointed. The location was equally distant from beach and pool and situated on a corner lot. This is an older subdivision, but extremely well maintained. The pool and common dock areas were a 10 out of 10. This unit could use some minor TLC. Musty pillows, ill-fitted to beds & master bedroom had some stains on the carpet. But everything else - great! Towels - great, water pressure super. AC, wi-fi, and TV - all great! We really had a great time! Caught crabs, had the proper low country boil, flew kites, rode bikes, swam in the pool, played in the surf, took the nature trail and did some beach combing. I think that about says it all. It was fabulous!

Great family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

First time Kiawah visitors and we will be back.This rental is exactly as the pictures suggest. Very comfortable and well maintained for our family of 4, 2 of these being teenagers. Bikes are a must have here and gave our teens the freedom to travel around safely. Inlet Cove community pool where this house is located seemed to be one of the bigger pools so an added bonus. Sunsets at this pool alone are worth the rental price! This house is also located within closer proximity to the Fresh Field shops versus other homes on the island. This made grocery store trips a breeze. Highly recommend this house. Only downside was we flew in and husband was bummed he could not bring his fishing gear. Possibly consider adding a line or 2 for those of us that travel from longer distances. Susie was a great help with all the details. A truly memorable family vacation. Thank you!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a wonderful vacation at this Inlet Cove Cottage. Kiawah Island is a great place for fishing. We are not able to provide fishing gear, but future guests can rent gear from the nearby Bohicket Marina.
