New pictures updated (July 2023)! Gorgeous, newly renovated (spring 2023) cottage on the river inlet in one of Kiawah's most popular communities, Inlet Cove, located by the bridge leading toward the beach access with views of the Kiawah River, marsh, and creek. Brand new updates include a third full bathroom (only one in the area with three full baths), more spacous master bedroom, bathroom, and closet (can fit a pack and play in the closet!), hot water outdoor shower, deck updates, painting, stunning metal roof, and many more!

The cottage includes a fully equipped and newly renovated kitchen with seating for 4 at the countertop bar. In addition, the large open dining-living area includes a dining room table that seats up to 8 as well as plenty of space for lounging in the living room and the adjacent screened porch. The screened porch has comfy furniture included an oversize couch, just perfect for those post-tee time or long day at the beach naps listening to the river and wildlife. The newly expanded and spacious master bedroom has a king size bed and connects directly to the master bathroom with private water closet and extra large closet. The second bedroom has a queen bed with its own bath and a third bedroom with two twin beds and an adjacent bath. The living room has a 65 inch Smart TV and Blu-ray/DVD player and there is a flat screen TV in the master and the twin room, as well. We also have wireless high-speed internet if you just have to stay connected. the owners have graciously provided family games and a selection of beach reads. The home also features hardwood floors, tons of space, and an updated ground-level deck adorned with a hanging bed, picnic table, and built-in grilling area with lots of counter space. No matter where you are in the home you're sure to have plenty of space to unwind and relax.

The community boasts its own neighborhood Junior Olympic Pool (typically available mid April to mid October), and fishing/crabbing dock (no boats please but kayaks welcome), and it is only a short walk away from the beach. Our cottage is centrally located within Inlet Cove between the community pool and the beach. A leisurely trail also connects our neighborhood to the General Store and Freshfields Village! If golf and tennis are your passions, you’ve come to the perfect vacation spot – Kiawah has 5 championship golf courses. The famous Ocean Course was host to the 1991 Ryder Cup, the 2007 Senior PGA Championship, and the 2012/2021 PGA Championship.. Kiawah has also been ranked as the #1 tennis resort in the world. Both clay and hard courts are available, along with fully stocked pro shops. In addition, Kiawah is home to a lovely spa at The Sanctuary and a wonderful children’s camp (Kamp Kiawah) offering activities and adventures throughout the year. There is something for everyone at Kiawah!

If you’d like to explore off-island, Charleston, with its southern charm, plantations and history, is only 20 miles away. Charleston’s attractions include world-class restaurants, a beautiful historic district, an outstanding aquarium, a Children's Museum, Ft. Sumter, harbor cruises, the WWII-era aircraft carrier USS Yorktown, carriage tours, and much more.

Beautiful house, very comfortable and spacious, well-appointed and furnished, wonderful outdoor patio below and above, right along the river and creek. We had a delightful stay!

Perfect Stay
We had a Thanksgiving family reunion at 41 Sunlet Bend. I cannot say enough nice things about this property. The house was spacious and comfortable for our party of 6. The kitchen was so well stocked that we lacked for nothing while cooking a big Thanksgiving meal. The outdoor spaces and the views were AMAZING. We saw dolphin and otter in the creek and even a bald eagle. ESPM was easy to work with and very responsive to any questions we had, even after hours! This maybe my all time favorite rental. No complaints whatsoever.

Spectacular property!
This home was recently renovated and the results are amazing. Each bedroom having its own bathroom was great. We had 6 staying in the home and we had more than enough room to spread out. The living area below the home was bonus!!! Outdoor shower (hot & cold) was a daily treat after the beach. The distance to the beach is very walkable but bikes are recommended if carrying gear. The views of the Kiawah River and inlet are amazing. This home has it all!!!

Best outdoor seating
We stayed in many houses on the island over the years and I’ve have to say this was our favorite. The outdoor seating and screened in porch was our favorite. Also the beds were all very comfortable. It was clean and the view was spectacular. We will definitely be saving this one in our book for next time:)

Breathtaking views from a fully equipped home
We spent a week in this beautiful home. It was our third time renting in the Inlet Cove neighborhood. The homes location is minutes from the ocean with an excellent view of the river and sunset. Our teenaged son loved setting out for adventures on the bikes we rented for our stay.

The home is well equipped with everything you’d need for your time in Kiawah. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset from the Adirondack chairs on the deck. The kitchen was the best stocked rental kitchen I’d ever experienced. (Not food items) They had everything from an assortment of storage containers to various sized serving dishes.

We’ll definitely rent this place again. It was the best of our three rentals in the area.

A beautiful retreat!
The cottage was just as described with a great view of the river. A beautiful home that was clean and well maintained - the kitchen had everything you need! Close to the beach, pool and easy ride to Freshfields village. Our family had a wonderful time and look forward to our next trip - hope we can stay here again!

Very Nice House, Well Set Up for Extended Family Vacation
We love Kiawah and this rental was for a vacation with our daughter's family. We chose 41 Inlet Cove because in addition to the normal beach access this rental has access to an excellent and very large swimming pool, which was important for our granddaughters, who both swim competitively. The house is well set-up for two families, with living/dining area separating Master bedroom/kitchen from the other two bedrooms and bath.

It's in very nice surroundings, with good views, excellent screen porch for wildlife viewing, and easy access to all of Kiawah plus nearby stores. The house was clean and well furnished. The ESPM staff were terrific. When a problem or two did crop up, they were right on it. One thing we would flag for future renters is to be sure to note the policy on staples. You need to bring almost everything you'll need for cooking, etc. or plan to buy it while there, along with beach towels, etc. This took us by surprise, since we did not see it until the final access instructions and even then didn't focus on it. This aside, our party of six, ranging from age 9 to 81, had a wonderful time!!!!!!

Nice Villa in Inlet Cove
We were happy with the location of #41. It was a quick bike ride to the beach and pool. We enjoyed the screened porch under the ceiling fans. We ate our breakfast out there each morning. We have always stayed in Inlet Cove on our annual family beach vacation to Kiawah. Great experiences with Turtle Patrol, biking the miles of paved trails, swimming in the pool, walks on the beach, great island restaurants. We will be back next summer.

Very nice cottage
After a small issue with the incorrect code to the key lock box, we very much enjoyed our brief stay. The rental company was quick to assist with the problem and it created only a minimal delay. The cottage is very clean and the kitchen is well stocked. We very much enjoyed the underneath grilling and lounging area. The views of the river are very nice and the sunsets were picturesque. We would definitely stay again.

Great House & Amenities
Great house on the West side of the island. Outdoor features (patio, furniture, etc.) were nice for relaxing. The house was clean as expected and had everything we needed in the kitchen. The nice grill allowed us to cook at home some nights. The beach was only a short bike ride away. Walkable, but the bike ride made it very easy.
