About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (1 King, 1 Queen, 2 Twin)

Welcome to 451 Sea Rocket, an Oceanwoods Cottage located on the West Beach in Kiawah Island, SC. Our cottage is located a few houses away from the amazing 10 mile stretch of Kiawah beach. We have a deck and grill out the back door and two garden benches out in front so you can enjoy the sounds of the ocean right from the house.

Sea Rocket Court is on non thru street making it a great location for families who want to be close to the beach and Island activities, but still have some quiet privacy. Bike rentals are easy with delivery and pick up, the island also offers kayaking, crabbing, fishing, chartered boats, kids camp, teen activities, a nature center, world class golf, and tennis in addition to 30 miles of paved paths and a 10 mile stretch of private beach that is also great for bikes, walking or a game of bocci. Sand dollars are more easily found on the beach than starfish, and always a fun surprise to find one, a perfect sand dollar or starfish in the soft sand. Hiking trails and docks are found throughout the well managed wooded areas of the island. The Kiawah Conservatory also looks after the wildlife, even the deer. Freshfields village is located just outside the Kiawah gate with a grocery, restaurants, shopping and summer activities on the green. Night Heron Park will have activities most nights of the week during the summer for families and late night teen events like glow paint ball. Charleston's is a 40-minute drive from Kiawah Island. It's hard to leave Kiawah but the trip to historic Charleston is worth it.

Our family uses our cottage and for that reason we continue to update and improve each year replacing or remodeling. Our kitchen was remodeled in 2012 with granite counters, new cabinets and stainless steel appliances. The hardwood floors throughout the house were completed that same year. In 2014 the bathrooms were updated with a glass shower, new tub, tile and sink fixtures. We added flat screen TV's in all the bedrooms with a 50 inch tv in the family room adding a pottery barn sectional sofa, and chair. This past year we replaced the windows, and purchased new furniture for the twin bedroom. The Master Bedroom has a king size bed, a 40 inch smart TV, ceiling fan, walk in closet and wooded views. The second bedroom has a queen bed, flat screen TV, and ceiling fan. The third bedroom has two twin beds, flat screen TV and ceiling fan.. The shared bathroom between was updated in 2014 ,with new tile, tub, shower and vanity. We stock our kitchen with all that is needed to prepare and serve meals. The grill is propane and we do ask guests to use tin foil on the rack. We have a full size washer and dryer in the home for guest use. An enclosed sun room adds additional sq.ft. to the interior of the home. The back door leads to the deck that is shaded by large oak tree. We keep teak chairs and table out for guests year round. We love the island and our home, and are glad to share it with our guests.

About Deirdre Winkle

My husband and I discovered Kiawah in 1992. We retuned in 1995 and came back every summer after that; finally purchasing our cottage in 2002. It is still our number one vacation spot with many great memories.

Deirdre Winkle purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Deirdre Winkle chose West Beach

The activities are endless, the conservation and efforts to preserve the natural environment on the Island make it like no other beach resort on the East coast. As a private Island it has a safe and friendly atmosphere. Charleston just forty minutes away is a wonderful city with amazing history and culture, food and events...

Recommend to Others

I stayed at 451 Sea Rocket Court with my two reen age children (12 & 15). It was the perfect location - close to the beach wonderful! and for the kids easy to get to Night Heron Park for the teen activities. The home had everything we would need and was immaculate when we arrived. Really great property

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Kiawah for several decades and have had a range of experiences with owners and properties. This one stands out in the positives.

The owner was extremely accommodating and responsive to our requests. The property was exactly as depicted and characterized on the site, homey and comfortable, with easy proximity to the beach.

We loved it and will be back!

Great place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and well maintained. Master mattress was very comfortable! Owner was a dream to work with and made the whole process very easy. Kitchen is well stocked and had everything we needed. Beach chairs came in very handy. The best part was how close we were to the beach, literally a 2 minute walk. Definitely rent bikes so you can bike endlessly on beach and on the very bike friendly roads on Kiawah!

We had such a wonderful time vacationing in this charming house! It was clean and welcoming... a perfect retreat for our family! The location was ideal for us with a very short walk to the beach, a 5 minute bike ride to Heron park, and multiple access points to the wonderful bike trails Kiawah has to offer! We hope to come back in the very near future!
