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 respectively of 65, 72, 80, 85, 89, and 87. With the nice weather swiming, walking the beach, shelling, golf, sightseeing and carriage rides in downtown Charleston are some of the favorite activities. 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 counter tops, stainless steel appliances, tiled kitchen and dining area look great.

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.

About Doug Godfrey

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.

Doug Godfrey purchased this condo in 2003

Why Doug Godfrey chose Charleston Area

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.

Ideal place for us

  • 5 of 5

We are a retired couple and have been to IOP a lot. This condo is by far the best we have stayed in. The view cannot be better and access to the beach is right there.

We stayed for a month and enjoyed every minute.

When you open the door to the condo, the ocean is right there to welcome you.

Looking forward to returning.

Four travel friends

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a fantastic time at the beach and vicinity on Wild Dunes and in Charleston. The condo was a wonderful place to stay and play. Beach access was very convenient and the views from the condo were wonderful. We certainly enjoyed every minute, even with the downpours on the second day. We spent time playing games that were provided in the condo and sitting on the deck listening to the ocean sounds. We would definitely return. The condo was spacious, clean and very comfortable.

Great Place for the family

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo right on the beach. Shipwatch is a nice complex, quiet with great views. Really enjoyed the setting in Wild Dunes. My family of 5 had a great experience: 2 girls in the 2nd room with my son on the sofa-sleeper. Upon arrival, easy checkin, well stocked with the basics, clean, and nice decor. Everything you want for a nice and relaxing vacation. Beach is gentle and roomy: perfect for kids of all ages. This is a great place to stay.

Ohio couple share a relaxing week on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd visit to the Shipwatch Wild Dunes complex. This is the perfect place if you want to be away from the noise of a typical beach, but close enough to enjoy some of the greatest food in the country. My wife and I came for a week and brought our road bikes. In the morning we would ride from the condo all over Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island, seeing the historic sites and beautiful houses. We would return in the late morning and hang out at the beach and read/swim for 4 to 5 hours, then in the evening make the 20 minute drive into Charleston to enjoy fabulous dining. The last night we ate at the Boat House (on the south end of the island, a place we have driven and rode by hundreds of times but never stopped) and it was also fantastic. The north end of Isle of Palms where Shipwatch is located is not very crowded, is very quiet, there is a lot of good walking along the beach, and the waves were fantastic the week we were there ! This was good for me, but my wife wasn't thrilled. This owner had a storage closet with beach chairs and a boogie board that we could use, which was very convenient. We will definitely return again next year, because there are still areas we still want to explore.

Beautiful condo and location on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

As a family with two teenagers, this condo is perfect. The master bedroom with master bath was beautiful. We had more than enough storage space for unpacking and the king size bed was very comfortable. We loved having an entrance to the balcony from the bedroom too. We had a friend who slept over one night and used the pullout sofa and we didn't have to disturb her upon waking in the morning as we were able to enjoy the balcony with table and chairs until everyone woke. The second bedroom with a full and twin size bed is perfect for our kids and the second bathroom was a plus. Another nice surprise was the layout of the bedrooms. The master has two bathrooms separating it from the second bedroom. This is a plus for our family with two gabby teens that stay up way later than us! The kitchen too was not only beautiful but well equipped. We ate dinner out every night however, we had everything to make a great breakfast of coffee, eggs, bacon, toast, pancakes or cereal. There were large bowls for evening popcorn and plenty of coffee cups, glassware and silverware. We never missed anything as we had exactly what we needed. The washer and dryer were great to keep towels clean. There was a vacuum for any sand that may have gotten dragged inside. And, there was an ironing board and iron for any quick touch ups we needed. All in all, I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone who wants a clean, beautifully decorated and furnished condo situated perfectly on the beach. The view is breathtaking and the walk to the beach is short. I cannot wait to get back to this property in July for another great vacation!

Owner's Response: Hello Stephanie, Thank you for the very nice review. We are very glad you and your family enjoy our place at the beach as much as we do. Sounds like the condo fits your family very well. We are very happy that the construction in Shipwatch is winding down. We have been going thru this for two years and while we have only had to be out of our place for a little over 9 months we to sorely miss the smell, breeze, and view of the ocean from our balcony. Jeanette and I are ready to go there towards the end of this month to get our new place (all new doors & windows, new roof and exterior walls) ready for everyone starting Jul 4. It will be just great and at long last done. We will have it ready for you and your family with a new interior paint job and some new drapes it will be better than ever. Have a great summer vacation. Regards, Doug and Jeanette
