About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Come enjoy the beauty of Kiawah Island in our newly renovated villa - only steps away from the beach!

Kiawah Island is a unique, romantic getaway with ten miles of wide and unspoiled beaches, meandering lagoons, rivers and lakes. Our second floor Shipwatch villa has a beautiful ocean view and is within steps of the beach, with shops and restaurants nearby. It has a king size bed in the master bedroom, two twin beds in the guest room and two full baths. Our villa was recently renovated and the kitchen has everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal.

If direct access to a beautiful, white, sandy beach is the focus of your vacation, this villa is the place to be! If you love to bike on the beach or on more than 30 miles of paved bike trails through marshes, golf courses, and maritime forests, then you will fall in love with Kiawah island. You can play a different golf course every day of the week and tennis courts are located across the street and historic Charleston is only a 35 minute drive away!

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have used homeaway many times, and this condo has been our favorite rental, by far! The pictures are 100% accurate, if even downplaying the beauty of this condo. The condo was immaculate and the kitchen had all necessary appliances for cooking. The view is lovely, as is the decor. I am super picky about beds, and this condo's bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in!

The condo is an elevator ride and 200 (maybe less!) steps from the beach. Lisa provided 2 lounge chairs and umbrellas (set up each morning and taken down each evening), which was great!

Lisa and Gebhard were very responsive and accommodating when we requested a last-minute booking.

Highly highly recommend this condo for a stay in Kiawah.

Excellent Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfectly located on Kiawah Island for easy access to the beach and amazing golf courses. The condo itself was very spacious and was great to have two bathrooms for three people during my stay. Lisa and Gebhard were very helpful and responded immediately to any questions. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay on Kiawah Island.

Nice condo, terrible bed

  • 3 of 5

Overall the condo was nice and clean. It's tastefully decorated, has a nice lay out, fully stocked kitchen, and the furniture was all in great shape. It's steps away from the beach, and the elevator for the complex was very fast and convenient.

Upon arriving, the condo had been freshly cleaned. There were plenty of extra towels and linens in the closets, and there were even extra beach towels. However, when we pulled the curtains back in the living room, there were huge spider webs in the windows. Another issue that we encountered throughout the week were all of the roaches and spiders inside the condo. We killed at least two or three a day inside the living room and the bedrooms.

The biggest problem with our stay was the king sized bed in the master bedroom. It was the hardest, most firm bed I've ever slept on. It was so hard that I could only take it for one night, and I spent the remaining 6 nights sleeping on one of the twin beds in the kid's room. My husband (who loves firm mattresses) even complained about how hard it was and how much his back hurt from sleeping on it. The mattress needs to be replaced or some kind of mattress topper needs to be put on it. I honestly wouldn't stay here again simply because the bed was so uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear the mattress in the master bedroom was not to your liking. Most of our other guests have raved about our beds. The mattress in the master bedroom is a top of the line Stearns and Foster mattress. It is firm, but not extra firm and we did put a pillowtop mattress cover over it. I did contact the property manager and asked them to have the pest control people come and spray for bugs. I do apologize that they were a nuisance during your visit.
