Welcome to 451 Sea Rocket, an Oceanwoods Cottage located in West Beach Kiawah Island, SC. Our cottage is located a few houses away from the boardwalk leading to the amazing 10 mile stretch of Kiawah beach. Our home features hardwood floors, granite counters, stainless steel appliances and recently remodeled bathrooms. Xfinitiy Wi Fi,, cable T.V. in all bedrooms, Smart T.V. in master and Family room. 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 oversize 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...

Our first but certainly not our last stay in Kiawah
The House was perfect. Distance to the beach as advertised. Our homeowner responded immediately to any and all questions and, whoever secured perfect weather was a true gem. We will visit Kiawah again, most probably in the same house. Just a wonderful week.
This rental property was very clean, well maintained and equipped with everything we needed. It was a close walk to the beautiful beach, which was not crowded. Bikes were delivered to us and the trails were easy to follow and took us everywhere on the island we needed to go. We absolutely would come here again for vacation!
Such a cute little cottage!! Great location, very close to the beach and very cozy. My family stayed 8 days this spring and even though it was cold most of the week, we had a blast. Will be staying again.
Great location, very comfortable cottage
We had a wonderful week in Kiawah in this very comfortable, clean cottage. The location is ideal - very short walk to the beach and easy access to bike trails. Definitely recommend this rental!
This house is very close to the beach. Updated kitchen with granite counters, and all the bowls pans and dishes you need. Furniture is updated and comfortable. Appreciated the use of the beach chairs.
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!
Thank you for your review. It is important to my husband and I that our guests have a pleasant experience while staying at our cottage. We love the island and are glad to share our slice of heaven. We were so glad to read your review and know that you and your family had a wonderful week.
451 Sea Rocket Court is 250 yards from the ocean. 4 houses from beachfront....from the deck you can hear the waves.
