The name Fifty Steps Cottage tells you the number of steps (give or take a few, depending on your height & the length of your stride) that you'll take in your under two minute walk to the nearby beach access. This is the closest Oceanwoods rental to the beach, ideal if you want to run back for lunch, for something you've forgotten, have a small child who needs a nap, or need to "use the facilities". This high-end, updated 1,280 square foot Oceanwoods cottage is on a quiet cul-de-sac directly across the street from a beach boardwalk (Boardwalk #15). Boardwalk 15 ends in a ramp to the beach--perfect for easy bike and stroller access.
Fifty Steps Cottage is designed to provide the two most important things about a beach vacation--relaxation & fun! Located in the desirable Oceanwoods sub-division in the convenient West Beach area of Kiawah, you're just steps away from the beach, bike & fitness paths and the children's playground at Night Heron Park. It's an ideal rental for families, multi-generational gatherings, a romantic getaway or a couples vacation.
West Beach is the section of Kiawah that's closest to the Security Gate. West Beach is also closer to the Freshfields shopping center and into Charleston than any other location on Kiawah. We're very close to the Sanctuary Hotel, making our cottage a convenient, ideal lodging for guests of weddings or other events held at that luxurious venue.
While at Kiawah, you'll be able to enjoy every imaginable outdoor activity. The island has 19 miles of leisure trails for walking, running or biking, and a spectacular 10 mile long beach. You can simply relax on the beach or on the screened porch, or indulge in more active endeavors--beach walks, beachcombing, building sand castles, burying your kids in the sand, swimming, boogie boarding, kayaking, sailing, fishing, biking, playing tennis or golf, bird watching, dolphin watching, spectacular sunset & moonrise views. Or relax indoors reading a book, playing cards, watching TV, or cooking in our fully-stocked gourmet kitchen.
We've vacationed on Kiawah for many years, and understand that a well-furnished, comfortably appointed place is what makes a carefree and memorable vacation. We've designed and completely furnished Fifty Steps Cottage so you can make the most of your beach getaway. This is a family-owned, newly renovated cottage, and we want you to relax, have fun and feel at home when you're here.
