Perfect cottage in popular Inlet Cove!






Come find rest and relaxation at our cozy cottage on Kiawah Island. Enjoy the breeze and the sound of crashing waves from our deck. Watch for wildlife from our screened porch as the tide ebbs and flows in the inlet behind the cottage. Our cottage, located in the gated Inlet Cove community, is perfect for family gatherings with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and plenty of room for fun both indoors and out. Inlet Cove is a special neighborhood on Kiawah Island, with its own private pool (available seasonally) and dock on the Kiawah River available only to residents and guests staying at Inlet Cove. Bring your kayak or paddle board – or rent one when you get here – and launch it from the dock just a short walk from the cottage. The dock is also great for crabbing or fishing, and is a fantastic place to enjoy the sunsets over the river (no boats please). Watching the dolphins play and feed along the riverbank is a don’t-miss event! Walk – or ride your bike – and enjoy the miles and miles of gorgeous beach found on Kiawah, or explore the island, with its unsurpassed river, ocean and marsh views, via the extensive network of bicycle trails. You can also enjoy the views from our lower deck while cooking dinner on the grill, or just relax in one of the rocking chairs or the hammock.

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!

The cottage includes a fully equipped and newly renovated kitchen with seating for 3 at the island. We have a gas range - perfect for those who love to cook, and a tankless hot water heater, so no running out of hot water when everyone takes a shower after a day at the beach! 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 master bedroom has a king size Tempurpedic bed and connects directly to the master bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed and shares a bathroom with the third bedroom, which has two extra-long twins. Both bathrooms are newly renovated, as well. There is a sofa sleeper in the living room as well as a 50 inch flat screen TV and Blu-ray/DVD player and there are flat screen TVs in the master and queen bedrooms, as well. We also have wireless high-speed internet if you just have to stay connected.

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. The Charleston City Market is a great shopping adventure where you can observe ladies making and selling sweetgrass baskets – the perfect souvenir for your lowcountry vacation!

Local Property Management staff is on hand in case of emergencies and their friendly, helpful, and and knowledgeable staff can assist you with any needs throughout your stay.

Stays of 3 to 21 nights come with a up to $210 (amount dependent on length of stay) credit to use towards beach gear rentals! 48 hr notice required.

Lovely, quiet little spot
This house was absolutely lovely. Everything was extremely clean, the kitchen was well appointed with tools and appliances, and the layout of the home was perfect. There is a balcony off the back of the home that has a screened porch and balcony off the primary bedroom that overlook a river. While the house was awesome, my favorite part was the neighborhood itself. Lovely shaded pathways and the beach was just around the corner. The community has a pool and a dock for fishing and kayaking as well. I had several questions for the rental company while we were there and they were always extremely responsive and easy to work with. Shopping in Freshfields was super nice (full grocery store, drugstore, etc) and Charleston was only a 40 min drive. The beach itself was awesome too. Super clean, not crowded at all. Great stay!

We love staying at Inlet Cove, and this year was no different. This is a great property that’s nicely positioned between the beach path and the pool. It has a modern open layout and nice amenities, would stay her again!

Great stay, some improvements needed
Second time staying here, location and house are great. A couple things - When we stayed here last year, we reported the hood range wasn't working. Came again this year, still broken. Gas can be dangerous to cook with without ventilation. Front step lights weren't working again either, definitely a fall hazard, very dark here at night. Some cabinets broken and need repair. Pots/pans could also definitely use updating. Otherwise good stay and 5 stars if attention to detail was there.

74 Inlet Cove
We have been visiting Kiawah since 1994 and we always stay at Inlet Cove.
We have stayed at several other units but 74 inlet cove has become our go to unit, especially since ESPM took over management.
This was the third time staying at this unit, second time renting through ESPM. ESPM was a notch above the previous property manager. The unit was very clean and has an extremely well equipped kitchen. We look forward to returning next year. ESPM was always quick to respond to any inquiries we had.

Great place steps from the beach
What a great place to stay. We had never stayed outside the gate on Kiawah despite vacationing there on-and-off for over 30 years. This place had everything we needed and a beautiful kitchen. It was perfect for our 6 guests (4 adults and 2 kids). It's a short walk/bike ride to the beach.

Relaxing Getaway
The cottage was exactly as described in the description, and then some. The kitchen was stocked with mostly all of the cookware and utensils that anyone would need. We were surprised to see there were even grill tools - utensils we have found that most places don't have - and there was even an extra propane tank in case we ran out (we didn't). We loved that the beach was a short walk or bike ride away, which we highly recommend the Vay K Gear rental company, as they took care of delivering our gear before we arrived. Overall it was a very relaxing place, that was quiet and relaxing.

Lovely Updated Marsh Home
Home is located on a marsh fed canal with deer strolling through, birds galore and otters at night. Quiet and peaceful. Home had all the amenities needed for a weeks vacation. Beach a 5 minute walk and pool and boardwalk near by. Good fishing and dolphin watching.

Perfect Getaway Spot
This was our first visit to Kiawah, and we loved staying at 74 Inlet Cove. The location was perfect! Quick bike ride to Beachwalker Park and easy access to all the Kiawah bike trails. This unit was very well stocked, clean, and beautifully decorated. The only upgrade I would suggest would be a TV definition upgrade - at least during college football season. This property is beautiful, well managed, and in the perfect spot. We 100% recommend!

Excellent getaway to a beautiful area
What an excellent little home. There are so many places to just hang out, it never feels clustered having a large group staying. The kitchen had everything we needed, but definitely don’t forget your salt and pepper. The beds were a little hard and the couch was not a pull out, so definitely bring an air mattress if you have extra people staying. We would love to stay here again.

Great family getaway
Wonderful experience, short bike ride to beach. Unfortunately pool was not open, but there is so much to do in Kiawah. Property has a great location, bikes make everything very easy.
Look forward to staying here again!

Perfect getaway cottage
This was a lovely cottage, beautifully updated and maintained. The inlet cove neighborhood is a gem of Kiawah we were not aware of before. On the Kiawah river, the sunsets and wildlife are amazing. The beach is a short bike ride away as are the biking trails of Kiawah. Would definitely stay here again. Two couples would easily enjoy this without feeling crowded. We are a family of 5 with 3 kids under 10 years old and did not feel cramped at all. The screen porch was a delightful place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and don't miss the sunsets at the community dock. ESPM was easy to work with and very responsive. We will rent from them again. If you're considering booking, go ahead and do it, you won't be disappointed!

Kiawah Vacation Home
74 Inlet Cove was a wonderful home away from home for a family of 7. The property was clean and well-designed. Our son and his family shared a bath between the guest bedrooms and we had the master bedroom and our own space. The villa was spacious and we particularly enjoyed the screen porch looking over the inlet, with the tide rising and falling. The large dining room table was very convenient when we all dined, including our daughter and son-in-law who visited. The kitchen was well-stocked but not a lot of food storage space due to full cabinets.

Perfect getaway
Beautiful home, beautiful beach, amazing island. Everything was seemless from booking to departure. This home is beautifully and comfortably decorated. Everything is high quality and exceptionally clean. The kitchen has everything you need. The laundry was so nice to have. The bathrooms are gorgeous and great water pressure. The short walks to either the gorgeous beach access or the waterway and dock were easy and enjoyable. You can walk forever on this gorgeous beach. The dock was a peaceful spot to sit and read and catch a dolphin swimming by. Convenient drive to shopping restaurants and groceries. Vacation perfection.

Inlet Cove Stay
This is our second trip to Kiawah but our first time staying in Inlet Cove. By far the best place to stay on the Island. The location is easy to get in an out of, no need to get in line to go through the main gate. Easy to get to the bike trails and close to shopping/grocery store and the general store if needed. The unit is very clean and has the perfect amount of space. We definitely plan to revisit this location again. A must is to go sit on the dock in the neighborhood off of the river.

Wonderful Fall Stay
We have stayed many places for many years on Kiawah and this has become one of our favorites. The location is great just a 2 min bike ride to the beach. We crabbed and fished in the backyard at high tide and off the community dock at any tide, and the kids loved the pool.

House was very clean. Everything was in perfect working order.

The kitchen was well equipped as we cooked all three meals for 7 days. My wife and I both love to cook so we can be picky when it comes to pans and cookware; we weren't disappointed.

Its on a cul de sac so there was no car traffic so our young kids had additional area to play with zero worry from us.

Booking was quick, easy and efficient. The staff was extremely helpful with our requests.

Will definitely rent again same time next year.
