About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 )

Welcome to 451 Sea Rocket, Oceanwoods Cottage located on the West Beach in Kiawah Island, SC. This 'Listen To The Waves' family retreat is a 3BR/ 2BA cottage, close to the beach where it's hard not to play in the surf. It's great to be close enough to the beach where you can run back for more towels.

451 Sea Rocket is a great location for families who want to be close to the beach and Island activities, but still have some quiet privacy. Take advantage of the bike rentals on the Island as well as the kayaks, golf equipment, fishing boats or charters, kids camp, many teen activities, nature center, world class golf or tennis, not to mention the 30 miles of paved bike or walking trails along all of Kiawah Island's beautiful landscapes. The 10 miles of the soft private beach will offer the perfect spot to relax or explore. This is a great beach to find your first starfish or sand dollar. If the scenic hiking trails and out of the way beach didn't bring out your inner explorer then just take a short drive to Freshfields, for shopping and dining. If you are more of a history buff, then lose yourself in Charleston's historic downtown. Charleston's only a 30-minute drive from Kiawah Island.

As you enter 451 Sea Rocket, you will find its simple and clean decore, well cared for and set up for the perfect family vacation. A charming bedroom is on the left with 2 twin beds. You will also find a second bedroom with a queen bed. The shared bathroom between was updated in 2014,with new tile, tub, shower and vanity. Towards the back of this lovely home you will find the master bedroom in soft blue hues featuring a king sized bed, walk-in closet, and private bath. This bath was also updated with a glass walk in shower new tile, and cabinets. The spacious living room is comfortable and clean, featuring a pottery barn sectional sofa,and plenty of space for the entire family. To the right is a fully equipped, updated kitchen with everything you need to serve family and friends the 'Day's Catch'. A step away from the kitchen is an open dining area that seats 6 and will provide all the comforts for your dining needs. To the right of the dining room is a recently enclosed sunroom that provides extra space for you and your guests. The sunroom is a great place for game night. From the sunroom step out onto the outdoor deck and enjoy the quiet wooded view. This is the owner's favorite spot to listen to the ocean waves. The outdoor deck is the perfect spot to have your morning coffee. Please don't forget to enjoy the gas grill later in the day.

We hope to see you soon!

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...

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!
