Property description

Welcome to Shipwatch. You came here for the beach and with the great above the trees 3rd floor location of this unit, you have the best views of one of the best beachs in South Carolina. When you are ready to go to the beach you are only an elevator ride and a few steps away from the walkway to take you there. You are well located to enjoy one of the best views of the oceanfront in Wild Dunes. You can enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, and happy hour on the covered and furnished deck facing the beach. Great beach and ocean views are available from the Living Room, Dining Area, Master Bedroom, Kitchen, and Deck/Covered balcony.

All seasons are great times to enjoy the beach,the walking paths and Charleston. Temperatures are moderate to warm with the average highs by months Mar -Aug repectively of 65, 72, 80, 85, 89, and 87. So swiming wether it be at the heated pool (in the cooler months or the Ocean in the warmer ones), walking the beach, shelling, tennis, golf, sightseeing and carriage rides in downtown Charleston are some of the favorite activities. Our condo also has the Sportscard so everything is ready for you to have one of your best vacations ever. Bring your family or come with some friends and create some great memories at our place on the beach.

The Condo was recently remodeled and has new Kitchen and Bath Cabinets as well as two completely redone baths. The new granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, tiled kitchen and dining area look great. The Master Bedroom features a very comfortable King sized bed, Black out drapes, dual side tables with reading lamps and a large 9 drawer dresser with a hutch top that encloses a flat screen TV with built in DVD. The recently redone Master Bath has a large glass enclosed shower and huge double vanity that is mirrored and well lit. The living area and the bedrooms just had new bellawood select oak hardwood floors installed. It just does not get much better than this.

The Shipwatch Condo has the nicest grounds in Wild Dunes and the nicest pools on the resort as well as a Beach Gazebo for the adults, and a children's playground central to everything. Wild Dunes is a private gated resort community so the beach is not overly crowded. When you are ready to eat, there are several nice restaurants on the resort but you are very close to both Mount Pleasant and Charleston, so great dining, shopping and sightseeing opportunities abound close by.

Recently added are:
* a new large 37' LED HDTV and DVD. Great for the free Current and Classic DVD's we now offer.
* a new free high speed wireless internet service.

The Wild Dunes Resort features two beautiful Golf Courses and several well kept Tennis Courts. So come for the Beach, Sightseeing, Shopping, Dining, Golf, Tennis, Spa, or Gym but most importantly Come Relax and Enjoy.

The beach is just an elevator ride and boardwalk away. Downtown Charleston is just a twenty minute drive away. Come and enjoy!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Pictured are 3 of our 4 Grand children who love the SC Beaches. Eli our forth grandchild is just a baby so it will be next year before he learns to enjoy the beach like the rest of us. Jeanette and her sister Billie were born in SC. I was born in NY and moved to SC in my teens. When Jeanette and I got married we moved to several different cities some she liked, like Williamsburg Va. and some she just made the most of like Detroit. Jeanettes' sister Billie moved to Mt. Pleasant SC after getting married and thus the start of our connection with Charleston and Wild Dunes. Our families vacationed and visited many times together over the years and we learned to love the lowcountry thru this process.

Why the Owner Chose Shipwatch:
Jeanette and I love the beaches and warm ocean waters off the Charleston coast. We love to walk the beach, go sightseening in Charleston and enjoy the good restaurants in the area. The beauty of Charleston, the low country and Wild Dunes as well as all the golf and Tennis opportunities were like magnets to us and our family. We started looking at properties in Wild Dunes in 1996 but really did not get the opportunity to buy untill 2003. We love our Villa and have spent the last 6 years re-doing the entire unit. It's how we want it now, nothing left to do but enjoy and enjoy we will.
