Why Sweetgrass Properties chose West Beach
This cottage is a great family location. The proximity to the beach is only about 1/2 mile and it is very convenient on and off Kiawah Island.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is located within a gated community just before the main gate. There is a community pool and the proximity to the beach is perfect! Just a bike ride away.
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Comfy, clean, and convenient home in gated community
Our family of 5 (plus our dog) stayed here in mid-July and had a great time! The home was just as described on VRBO and was very clean. It's hard to find a pet friendly place that doesn't smell or look like a pet friendly place, but you couldn't tell that anyone else had had a dog in here. The carpets and furniture were unstained and there was absolutely no 'pet' smell. It seems that most of the renters must be very respectful with their pets, as were we, in not allowing wet or sandy dogs inside and never allowing their dogs on the furniture. It critical that all pet owners show this kind of respect so that the few rentals that allow dogs don't change their minds! I caution that I write this review and give this property 5 stars in light of the reasonable rental rate and location. If you're looking for a super modern place with Viking appliances, marble floors, and granite counter tops, you're going to need to pay a thousand or two more a week. We don't need that stuff. We just want a very clean place that's well kept and stocked. This home fit that bill perfectly.
The kitchen was well stocked (there is a Keurig machine even though the description doesn't say it) and the beds were comfy. There are new TVs in each bedroom but frankly, we took more advantage of the comfy screened porch with two ceiling fans to move the air around a bit. Check-in and check out couldn't have been easier because there's a key code that the agency sends you a few days before you arrive. The property had beach chairs (must've been 6 or 7 of them) all in good condition. There also were 5 or 6 bikes where the chairs were kept but I don't know if renters are allowed to use those. We didn't and rented from Alligator Bikes. If you are permitted to use the bikes I'd recommend bringing WD-40 for the chains, which looked pretty rusty. The beach and pool are less than 10 minute walks but just a couple of minutes by bike. Being very close to Beachwalker Park was also fantastic. The park has amazing facilities that include a place to rinse off pets and pet drinking water stations. If you're renting chairs be sure to plan to use the beach at Boardwalk 1. It's the closest one. The pool facility is really well done and has a shaded deck with rocking chairs that overlook the Kiawah river. Beautiful! The new Cougar Point clubhouse is also a short walk/bike away. Food and sunset dinner views are incredible! So cool to have that facility right around the corner!
First timers family vacation
We were a family with a dog and the location of this property was really good. We were close to the beach and also the pool area. We also loved that this location had a dock close by where we can go fishing, crabbing and kayaking right off of. The dolphins and other wildlife are so up close and it was the highlight of our stay. The property itself was nice and the inside was clean, however, the front deck, the screened in porch and the back deck were really un-useable. We also met a great deal of spiders inside upon check-in and a few other critters at night. I am not certain if this is the norm for the time of year we stayed but there were a lot of cobwebs inside the screened in porch and on the decks. It would have been good to have them cleaned and the areas sprayed before we stayed. So we really could not utilize those areas. However, that did not stop of from having a good time because the rest of the property was nice and clean and for a dog friendly property, you would not know that dogs stay there. The other thing that was a little disappointing was in other comments it listed that there was beach gear that can be utilized but when we arrived all of the beach gear we saw was locked up. When I called the property manager they indicated that the items that were locked could not be utilized by the renters. So I am not sure if there was beach gear somewhere else but we were told it couldn't be used. Luckily we brought some beach gear with us but we did not have a wagon to bring the beach gear to the beach. So just as an FYI, the beach gear may not be able to be used during your stay. However, there were 3 kayaks that we were able to use. Which was awesome. We did run out of propane during our stay while we were cooking dinner. Luckily we had friends that stayed at the same time, so we finished cooking by them since it was after hours and couldn't get propane right away but it was delivered after calling the property manager by the next day. I have to say though the overall consensus is that we really enjoyed the property and we would stay there again especially since we know what to expect and what is needed. Thank you for letting us enjoy your property.
Great week in Kiawah
Our 3 generations of family enjoyed our week at this Inlet Cove cottage together! The cottage is exactly as pictured. Very nicely decorated and comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped and had everything we needed to cook dinners in several nights. The walk to the beach was about 7 minutes for all of us (from the grandparents down to the preschoolers who we pulled in a wagon on the paved beach path). The neighborhood is very nice and quiet with nice amenities including the pool area and view of the Kiawah River. It was also easy to walk to the inlet at the entrance to the neighborhood for some fishing. The location was great for getting to Freshfields Village and Bohicket Marina easily. Our only issue was not having the gate code for the gated community upon arrival. I called the after hours number and someone from the rental agency very promptly contacted me to remedy the situation. The agency was great to work with and easy to reach via email as well. Loved that this was a pet friendly rental. Our dog had a great time walking in the neighborhood and she enjoyed her daily morning walks on the beach. We noticed a few cobwebs on light fixtures and throughout the screened porch, and dust collected on the air duct vent, but everything else in the home was very clean. We encountered some creepy crawlers throughout our stay, but some are to be expected at the beach. We loved the screened porch for coffee in the morning and games at the table on a rainy afternoon, but didn’t want to sit out there at night because of a lot of spiders who showed up once it was dark. Not sure if that’s typical or if some additional pest control could help with that. Overall, an excellent stay in a comfortable home that was close to the top-notch beach for a great price. Thank you for a great week at Inlet Cove!

Great week at Kiawah
The cottage was comfortable, but does need some modern upgrades. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this unit for the price.
Great! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for the review. We look forward to having you back again soon!
Really comfy beds,2 fantastic porches, great tv,....had to squash several slow moving ants the whole time
Thank you for the feedback, Lois! We appreciate you leaving us a positive review. In regards to the ants, we have notified the property manager to go to the property to spray for these. The problem should be resolved soon! Please do not hesitate to reach out if there is ever any issue during your stay. We'd be more than happy to help! We hope you stay again soon!
nice vacation home
Very relaxing enjoyable vacation home. Very quiet street. The kayaks worked out great. My only disappointment were the green fees at the course.
I would consider returning if I could get reasonable green fees.
Thank you for your feedback, Thomas. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our property during your vacation. Unfortunately, we don't have any control over the greens fees for the golf courses on Kiawah. All those rates are controlled by the resort. We hope to have you back again soon.
