Needs updating
We love the location and view of this property but unfortunately not much has changed in the last 3 years. The bedding is minimal and needs more pillows, pillow cases, and blankets/duvets. The knives were completely dull and everything was a little grimey. The master shower does not drain. The place could use updating for sure but we love the location and view so we keep coming.

Private and Perfect
We were looking for private and we found it. The view from the living room and screened in porch is amazing. You can't see anything resembling a human. The inside of the house was also great, comfortable bed, strong water supply in the shower, plenty of amenities in the kitchen with all new appliances and updated bathrooms.

Great Location
We love being before the gate into Kiawah, easy access to both the river and beach, and a community pool. Everything is just an easy bike ride away.

A enjoyable 2023 vacation.
Having renting several vacation cottages at Inlet Cove in the past,49 Sunlet Bend was the best facility we have experienced. Being retired seniors my wife and I wanted a week of relaxation without problems with a rental unit. We got our wish as we were allowed to pursue our primary interest of fun and entertainment.

Return customers
We love visiting kiawah and especially love this Villa's location on the kiawah River! The house has everything you need but it is definitely getting worn in. My kids and I would prefer more pillows and blankets on the beds. The grill did not work for us. The tv in the queen room did not work for us either.

Terrific family get away
Loved, loved this home. Location was terrific. Our family of 4 had lots of space and it felt like home. Kitchen is well fitted with anything you could need. We cooked every night and had all the tools we needed. Hope to stay again in the future!

Inlet cove
Overall it was great. I only wish the grill was clean and the gas tank was still in open position so I never used. The shower liners were also moldy
The floors needed more cleaning. The lock on porch lock also didn't work

What a view
I could have sat on the porch forever. The view was amazing all day long. The house is in a quiet, gated neighborhood and just a short bike ride to the beach. The kitchen had most all the dishes and utensils we needed to prepare our meals. The two larger beds were comfortable but the teenager said the twin beds weren’t so comfortable.
So great cul to be able to have spent a week in this house!

Best view ever!
The house is updated and charming. The location is convenient, and the view of the river is intoxicating! We could’ve sat there watching the dolphins all day! The community pool and dock are a lovely and peaceful addition. We will definitely be renting this again!

Kiawah Island River Cottage
Fantastic week in 49 Inlet Cove. Watched beautiful sunsets and dolphins swim past from the screen porch, kids rode bikes to the beach and the Fresh Fields. Fantastic location. At the end of the first day we were already planning our next trip there.
