Shipwatch oceanfront condominiums, offered by Hodnett Cooper, have been a favorite family destination for many years. With just 52 residences, Shipwatch is a quiet community ideal for both weekend getaways and multiple month escapes.
Each residence features two bedrooms, two full baths, a combined living, dining, and kitchen area, and a private balcony.
Community amenities include boardwalk access to the heart of St. Simons' sand beaches, a swimming pool, volleyball area, large grass lawn, outdoor grills and complimentary in-room high speed internet service. Though this community is located directly on the ocean, individual residences, unless otherwise specified, do not offer ocean views.
Shipwatch 215 has been completely updated to include new tile flooring throughout, new furnishings, and an upgraded kitchen. This newly renovated condominium is one of Hodnett Cooper's nicest offerings at Shipwatch. The living area is equipped with a 40 inch flat screen TV. The balcony has a wonderful porch swing perfect for enjoying the outdoors.
PETS: Small pets are accepted with $150 non refundable pet fee.
Bedding Includes: 1 King, 1 Bunk Bed (twin and full) with Twin Trundle, 1 Queen Sleeper Sofa (with thick, comfortable mattress).

Smaller than imagined from pictures
Very clean, great location. Just a tad smaller than the pictures looked especially to sleep 6 people BUT it was fine and the place was clean and loved being able to walk to beach this year.
Cute unit but very small!
We stayed in Shipwatch Unit 215 the week of July 9-15, 2017. The unit has been updated with tile floors, beadboard, & 50's diner inspired kitchen table & barstools. The unit is cute but the Shipwatch units are very small with tiny kitchen, small family room, and very small bedrooms and bathrooms. The secondary bedroom had bunk beds with a full on the bottom with a twin pull out trundle & a twin top bunk which gives sleeping space for up to 4 as well as a sofa sleeper that can sleep two in the family room & a King bed in the Master. However the bedroom was so small that when the trundle was pulled out there was no room to walk & the closet doors couldn't be opened. The stackable washer and dryer is also located in a laundry closet in the secondary bedroom which is very aggravating as people trying to do clothes have to come in the bedroom which doesn't allow for much peace or privacy. It is also loud to have the washer and dryer going inside the bedroom. The unit was supposed to have 3 tv's but the one in the secondary bedroom was missing & the Master bedroom has a tiny tv making us think the tv in the Master had broken & they had taken the one from the secondary bedroom to the master. In today's day & time it is definitely a discomfort to not have a tv in the bedroom. The swing on the balcony was nice. The pool area is very nice & quaint. There was not enough parking in the parking lot. The wood decking that makes up the "hallways" & the wood steps is hard to maneuver & makes a lot of noise when pushing luggage and grocery carts. We are used to staying at Beach Club, North Breakers, and the Grand. I know Shipwatch is the oldest cond building on the beach it just seems very small and outdated compared to the condo complexes we are used to. We have decided Shipwatch is not for us & we will not stay there again.
Thanks for your detailed review, we appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the updates to this unit including the new tile flooring throughout, new furnishings, and upgraded kitchen. The weather has been perfect lately so we are glad you enjoyed the balcony swing and pool area too. We will work diligently to get the appropriate Televisions working and back in the unit. We apologize the size of the unit did not meet your satisfaction as well as the noise of the wood decking and the in-unit washer and dryer location, we will take this items into consideration moving forward to ensure our guest have the most pleasant experience possible while visiting St Simons Island. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you again in the future.
Very nice stay; close to beach; nice pool
The management team welcomed me and were friendly and available. We had no issues. Everything worked, was clean and stocked with all needed basics.
