We absolutely loved this house! We love being outside so the view and backyard were just perfect. Hilary sent me a link when learning I was looking to rent a house in the Charleston area, and I knew immediately that we would love this home. I would suggest getting a King size bed for the Master Suite, and leaving directions on how to access the plugs in the bathroom. The fireplace was perfect. The doors not shutting properly could be an issue for large groups. I’m planning on renting this home again for a girls weekend. You won’t be disappointed!

Girls Getaway
We have just returned from a Ten Day vacation in Kiawah. It is my understanding from some of the locals that this is the best cottage in Inlet Cove. It has been completely renovated from the ground up. Beautiful bathrooms and a marvelous kitchen. It is very modern. The location is perfect since it is It is located right on the Kiawah River next to the swimming pool and boat dock. The dolphins and kayakers pass every day and if you are a bird lover, you are in luck. You are a short ten minute bike ride to the Ocean.

September Vacay
The week was lovely with perfect weather. Beautiful sunsets from 18 Inlet Cove. The villa is updated and comfortable. NONE of the doors shut properly including the front door. The owner has a door problem! We were not made aware of that. It does not appear the fireplace works. We bought new batteries which did not make a difference.

Amazing Location-Great Home!
We are return vacationers to 18 Inlet Cove. The home is updated, extremely well cared for, and well appointed. To add to that, the view of the Kiawah River is amazing. Hillary, from ESPM, provided us with the best care. This trip was delayed due to Hurricane Florence but Hillary kept us updated in regards to when we could arrive, helped us with some gate code glitches, and even helped us in the end when we reached out with a dead vehicle. So from start to finish she was there to help! For activities other than the beach and swimming pool area, we highly recommend biking the island and taking in a little fishing (Canvass Pond is a great choice but beware there are alligators in the pond). Cannot wait to return to Kiawah Island.

Outstanding Condo With Fabulous View
This condo is absolutely beautiful and the view of the water so peaceful with stunning sunsets. The owners completely updated with high end appliances and decor. I would venture to say this is the nicest condo in all of Inlet Cove. The location is perfect being right by the pool. I would definitely stay here every chance I can!

Great Place in a quiet, beautiful setting

The home is in a beautiful setting with direct water views. It’s in a very quiet community which was perfect for us, too couples in our late 40s. The interior had been renovated, it’s well decorated and has all modern appliances. It also has plenty of linens, and starter detergents/soaps/shampoo etc.

One tip, the turnover instructions ask that all food and condiments be removed. When you’re doing your arrival shopping remember to pick up items like salt, pepper, plastic bags, etc.
