The Sandpiper at Shipwatch is located just an elevator ride away, making Kiawah’s West Beach easily accessible for a morning jog, an afternoon of fun in the sun or a stroll in the evening as dusk settles in.
Of course, there’s more to Kiawah than just the sand and surf.
Within a short walking distance you’ll find a golf course, tennis courts, shopping and restaurants – and historic downtown Charleston is only a 30-minute drive away.
Oceanfront With a Sense of Style
Recently renovated and professionally decorated with heavy custom drapery, hardwood floors, designer furniture and original artwork that ooze Southern charm, this villa has plentiful seating and places to mingle.
In the kitchen you’ll find granite countertops and ample cookware, though the dining room and living room are close enough to carry on a conversation.
Don’t be surprised if people sink into the comfortable living room furniture to catch a movie, or linger over breakfast at the intimate dining room table.
And, of course, we encourage you to kick back in a counter-height teak chair on one of the villa’s oceanfront decks with a cocktail in hand to enjoy the sounds and smells of beachfront living.
At night, retire to one of the rental's 2 bedrooms: a deluxe king-sized bedroom and another with 2 queen beds. All 3 beds have pillow-top mattresses, memory-foam toppers, Egyptian-cotton sheets and down-alternative pillows – oooh-la-la!
Outfitted in white and pale blue furnishings, these spacious bedrooms embody a sense of relaxation that – when combined with the sound of the surf just beyond the windows – is sure to lull you to sleep. Both have balconies overlooking palmetto trees with the ocean beyond as well as private bathrooms and 26-inch flat panel televisions (just in case you need a break from the landscape).
The Sandpiper also has free, shared laundry facilities located just across the hall – and we provide the laundry detergent.
The Sandpiper at Shipwatch is a popular vacation villa and only available as a Sunday-through-Sunday rental in the summer. If your preferred dates are already filled, consider checking out the 2-bedroom Treetops or one-bedroom Vista, 2 other of our properties available in the Shipwatch complex.

About Shawn and Jeanette Lawson
About Property Managers, Shawn and Jeanette Lawson (Kiawah Island Getaways): Shawn's family discovered Kiawah in 1978 and returned year after year for two-week vacations. In 1985 we drove our VW Bug convertible to Kiawah and Shawn introduced me to Kiawah. I remember stepping over the dune boardwalk out in front of the Kiawah Island Inn and seeing Kiawah's wide, sandy beach for the first time - it was so brilliant it practically danced before my eyes. It was during this vacation that the two of us decided to set our sights on moving to this beautiful and fascinating place permanently. In 1988 our dreams came true and our U-Haul rattled across the Kiawah Island bridge (at that time it was nothing more than a wood-planked bridge). For the next four years we rented a 1-bedroom villa, 4251 Mariner's Watch. Shawn was so thrilled to be living on the island that he applied for the personalized South Carolina license plate 'KIAWAH' (which we still have today). In 1992, we built our first home on the island at 134 Conifer Lane. During construction, I gave birth to our first son Benjamin - he arrived 2 months early in an ambulance outside of the Kiawah Island Fire Station. In 2001, we purchased our first villa, a 1-bedroom, beachside Seascape and Kiawah Island Getaways was born. Once we got our feet wet with the villa rental business, it was a like a fever for us. We both really enjoyed furnishing, decorating and maintaining the villas - not to mention the new found fun of meeting and talking to all sorts of people about Kiawah. Because we really enjoy what we do, other Kiawah property owners noticed and we started managing their properties as well. Our whole family loves Kiawah and running Kiawah Island Getaways is a true family-run business. We personally prepare each villa prior to your arrival - because we want your stay to be perfect. We want you to fall in love with Kiawah too...and we know you will.

Great girls trip
Celebrated 20 yr college graduation with my close friends. Condo was beautiful, as was the weather ( early November). Facility was quiet, just had some construction the first day in the morning. Beach was close and non crowded. Drive into Charleston was about 45 mins. Thanks for having us! We had a great time!!!
We loved this property!
We've been going to Kiawah Island for years and this is, by far, the best place we've stayed at. We have a 2 and 4 year old and it was so easy to travel with them this year, because of the location and layout of this property. We now plan to stay at one of the Lawson's properties every time we go to Kiawah!!
Perfect in every way!
This is my fourth time staying in Kiawah and it's been my favorite location so far! It's hard to beat affordable oceanfront property that's also immaculate. The owners have thought of every detail and even recommended activities that we haven't known existed on our previous visits (hidden towers!). This end of the beach is super relaxed and close to Freshfields, which is prefect for us in this stage of life with two young boys. We will be coming back!
Stunningly beautiful - immaculate
This is a stunning property with ocean views from every room - equipped with everything you need right down to notepads and pens.....the beds are like a luxurious 5 star hotel - can't go wrong with this villa or rental company - they truly care!
What a lovely villa! The location was fantastic, complete with stunning ocean views. Access to the beach was simply a stroll down the boardwalk. The decor was lovely, that rivals many 5-star hotels. What truly sets this villa apart were all the personal touches from fresh cut flowers to ziplock bags... everything was included which was so nice! We can't wait for our next visit!
