About Peter Jernigan

Retired and looking forward to more time at the beach. Love to play tennis and golf. Love to spend time at the beach with the family.

Peter Jernigan purchased this condo in 2009

Why Peter Jernigan chose Isle of Palms

Wild Dunes is a fabulous beach resort community that offers 1st class golf and tennis. It's great for kids and adults. Shipwatch is one of the premier villa units in Wild Dunes.

In addition, one of the top rated vacation destinations, Charleston, SC, is about 30 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great weekend, though the weather temperature turned a little cool on Saturday. The facility was top notch. It was a little too cool for the pool, but the area looked beautiful. Will try to return when the weather turns warmer

Nice beach-front condo

  • 4 of 5

Average Wild Dunes condo. Location is pretty good, views of ocean somewhat obstructed but still nice. Older condo so needs some updating but still enjoyed it. Had some issues initially getting check-in instructions but owner got back to me.

WD is always Great! Unit was just ok...

  • 3 of 5

The good - WD is wonderful! Great view of the pool and grounds with a bit of an ocean view. Easy access to pool, ocean, parking, very quite area. Plenty of space for 4, open floor plan, furniture/beds were fine. Price was reasonable as well.

The not so good - elevator did not work. Obviously not the owners fault, but if we would have been on the 5th floor instead of the 1st...

Some very odd features in the unit. Maybe designs from the 80's?? Shower/Tub set up is very odd, sink layout, equally odd. Both are in serious need of updating!

Closet doors for AC unit did not fit/close/were off the tracks/flimsy?? Was very loud when heat was running.

TV's - maybe its just can go to Best Buy and get 50 inch TV's all day long for a few hundred $$'s. To put it bluntly the TV's in the unit sucked! They may be original when built in the 80's? This is a no brainier to me...I know people will say "its the Beach, go outside, play, swim, etc"....but in Nov, when its 45 degrees and raining all day, with kids??

Great place to stay and convenient to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had some initial hiccups in booking the condo which resulted in us not being able to stay for the duration that we had hoped, but the owner was very kind and easy to work with.

The condo is perfectly positioned for getting to the beach and pool. The beach is very flat and long during low tide which was great for our son to play on. We will definitely be renting this condo again in the future.

Shipwatch is great

  • 4 of 5

Had a great few days in "paradise." Very nice accommodations and maybe the best beach front in Wild Dunes. Pool area is also superb.

You Made Our Trip Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

I want to say a great thank you. This place was beautiful. The location is perfect. Everything you could possibly need is there. You only have steps to the beach, the pool is clean and the place inside and out is perfect. They were super accommodating, we booked that day and were able to get an early check in thanks to the owners help, since we had a wedding to get to. I would stay here again and again. We are already looking into planning a trip back. I would love to own a place here!

Splendid experience at Shipwatch in Wild Dunes!

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely delighted upon arrival at Wild Dunes and even more so upon opening the door to the Villa. It was spacious, clean and the decor was pleasing to the eyes. We were also satisfied to learn that all the accommodations and amenities were included, as described. We traveled with our 6 and 8 year old who just as much enjoyed the close proximity of the pool and beach as well as strolls on the property. We opted for dining on Sullivan's Island which is just a short drive away and offers tasty variety. I highly recommend this beautiful Villa and hope we can return every year. Thank you for your kind hospitality, Mr. Jernigan.
