Shipwatch Villas condo description

Kiawah Island Shipwatch Villas are located on the beach nestled among the sand dunes and palmetto trees. Ten miles of pristine, beautiful, white sand beach are a short stroll over the board walk. This second story unit has a wooded, scenic view shrouded by Southern Magnolias, live oaks, and pines.

This Kiawah Island Shipwatch Villa is an exceptionally designed, newly renovated, two bedroom, two bath rental property. It is perfect for a relaxing getaway or a fun, family vacation.

The tastefully decorated villa has a deck off the living room which is perfect for morning coffee or evening drinks. Situated on the second floor, the beach is just an elevator ride away. The entire villa has just been completely repainted and retiled with new carpet installed in the bedrooms. The kitchen has been updated with solid surface countertops, new cabinets and lighting and is totally equipped for all of your cooking needs, including free in room coffee.

Our villa sleeps six with a king-size bed in the master bedroom, two queen beds in the second bedroom.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with new bedding (comfy, cozy down comforters with duvet cover) and a private bath with hair dryer.

The second bedroom has two queen beds with new bedding (also with down comforters and duvet covers) and private bath equipped similarly. Complimentary toiletries are included. Both bedrooms have new carpeting as well as private balconies and cable TV. The living room is also equipped with cable TV and DVD/VCR. The rooms are all on one floor and can be reached by elevator or steps.

The villa is maintained by the Kiawah Island Resort and entitles you to Resort privileges and amenities at no extra charge. We are in a secluded yet convenient location only a two-minute drive from the main gate.

The villa's ideal West Beach location is adjacent to the 17th fairway of the challenging Cougar Point Golf Course and the West Beach Tennis Club. It is a short walk to The Straw Market, which includes restaurants, a general store, bike shop, ice cream shop and the fitness center. You also will have exclusive use the Resort's heated Night Heron Pool complex and be close-by to the FRESHFIELDS Shopping area at the entrance to Kiawah Island. Also, just outside the Kiawah entry, Bohicket Marina and Yacht Club offer an assortment of boutiques, restaurants, and convenience services.

Our experience over the years has proven that Shipwatch is an overall perfect location and once you vacation with us, we know you will agree!

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: We are South Carolinians and can go to any of the beaches in this state. We choose Kiawah! Kiawah Island is by far the most amazing in our opinion! We live a couple of hours away, and enjoy our villa any opportunity we get ... it is our oasis away from home! It can be your oasis too!

                      Why the Owner Chose Shipwatch Villas:
                      Our family loves to vacation at Kiawah Island. We have made many unforgettable family memories here over the past 15 years. The beach is incredible! Uncrowded and pristine! At low tide, the beach seems to be a mile wide! Great for playing games, flying a kite, riding bikes, or getting sun without the fear of being on top of your neighbor! Also, since Kiawah is a gated community, it provides a safe haven for our kids to ride bikes, walk on their own to get an ice cream, and most importantly, just be kids.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The best part of our villa is the fact that the building is on the beach! Who wants to load your car up to go to the beach? At our villa, you are on the beach in moments! And, if you forgot something, you are back in the villa in moments! With kids, trips back to the villa are very common for me!
