The Vista at Shipwatch

A beachfront rental with a sweeping view of the Atlantic Ocean, this one-bedroom/one-bath villa is the perfect place to sneak away with your loved one for a romantic weekend or longer.

For Late Mornings and Fun-Filled Days

Drenched in rich colors and outfitted with sumptuous bedding, don’t be surprised if you have the urge to linger in the bedroom late into the morning. With an antique reproduction Tuscan bed, exquisite bedding and memory foam topper mattress, the room is both comfortable and beautiful.

Your private balcony opens from the bedroom, so feel free to step outside and watch the beach awake from its slumber with your first cup of coffee – or second or third cup – in hand.

The bathroom, appointed with a wide, 2-sink vanity topped with granite, awaits when you need to rinse sand from toes or prep for a night out on the town. No detail is left untouched with the Tuscan-tiled tub, original art and framed mirrors.

Make your way into the quaint kitchen to craft a meal you’ll both remember.
Whether you’re putting the finishing touches on a favorite seafood dish or trying your hand at a new, elaborate creation, the Vista’s kitchen lets you cook in style with granite countertops, Tuscan tile floors, a farm sink and an oversized bar facing the view.

Get cozy in the Vista’s living room, which is punctuated in high-tech details and designer décor such as a 50-inch Samsung television and fully stocked DVD and book library. Relax on the sofa for an evening in, and make sure to take advantage of the 2 swivel rockers, which are placed in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows.

An Elevator Ride from the Beach

When you’re ready to venture out and create memories from this special destination, simply ride the elevator right to the beach, where you can spend the day splashing in the waves or walk hand-in-hand as the setting sun paints the sky at dusk.

Beyond the beach, take your time over a long dinner at a nearby restaurant, pop in and out of the local shops, check out the Kiawah golf courses or take a day trip to historic downtown Charleston, located just 30 minutes away by car.

Of course, all getaways need to come to an end in time, but for a short while, The Vista at Shipwatch promises to be the ideal hidden retreat from the moment you check in to the last footprint you leave on the beach.

Owner info

Kiawah Island Getaways

About the owner: 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.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
With a chilled glass of chardonnay in hand, the gentle tumble of waves in the background and breathtaking ocean views from the deck of your Kiawah Island vacation, let a magical moment take over.
