We welcome you to our home in The Shipwatch Villas, on the coast of South Carolina, nestled in the gated community of Wild Dunes on Isle of Palms! Since 1984 our family, friends and visitors, and now you too, will immediately begin to relax in the ocean breeze, the calming waves and the swish of the palm trees as you step out onto our ocean front balcony!

Our spacious newly renovated home, on the second floor, provides two master suites, a third bedroom, kitchen, laundry, dining and living room area with a large balcony.

The first mater suite provides a restful sleep in a king size bed, a private bath with a large tiled walk in shower and direct access to the balcony with its breath taking views. Our second master suite also provides a king size bed with its own private bath with a tub; perfect as an in-law or grandparent suite! Our third bedroom allows room for three, with a double bed and a twin, again with its own bath and a shower. View the floor plan detailing the amount of space to relax in and allowing for plenty of privacy for each sleeping area in this one level villa.

The shared open floor plan for the kitchen, dining and living area provide plenty of room for all to enjoy quality time with one another. The kitchen, with its granite counter tops, convenient island and stainless steel appliances allows you to do as much or as little as you want in the kitchen! Feel free to cook a full dinner for the entire family or a breakfast to enjoy on the balcony or simply just to pack lunches for the beach! The dining area provides for 6 at the table and 3 at the breakfast bar. The spacious living area is great for family game night or a movie night of snuggling. This area provides wonderful views out the large windows and access to the balcony.

Let's talk balcony! Many find this as their favorite spot in the villa. It is spacious, yet private; high enough for outstanding views, yet protected from the weather! Morning coffee will never be the same once you enjoy a fresh hot cup on our balcony! Take time out from the beach or pool to have lunch or enjoy the evening breeze! The best is watching a rain storm come in off the ocean...incredible!

The Shipwatch association consisting of four buildings is unique on Wild Dunes. It is the only association that has an on-site manager. We are proud that our facilities are clean and well maintained with impeccable grounds, and have well lite parking and daily monitoring.

At Shipwatch, you will enjoy the mineral pools, an ocean gazebo with an observation deck and a playground for the youngsters! Our travertine tiled pools consist of a toddler pool and a larger pool designed with a play and lap area with plenty of lounge chairs. Visit the gazebo to take in the beauty of the beach and ocean and to feel the wind and sun on your face! It's perfect for pictures! Kids will love the sand playground with swings and a climbing activity center!

As part of the Wild Dunes Resort, you can enjoy the two world renown golf courses or tennis facilities. Rent a bike and enjoy the beautiful surroundings or book some personal time at the Sand & Sea Spa! Or take a stroll at the Wild Dunes shops and visit one of their four award winning restaurants.

The towns of Isle of Palms, Mount Pleasant and Sullivan's Island are only a short drive away. Enjoy some local favorite restaurants or immerse yourself in the many shopping malls. But don't count out Charleston! It is only a 20 minute drive once you are off of the IOP Connector. To say there is much to see and do in Charleston, is an understatement! We've been coming here since 1984 and always find that Charleston never dissappoints!

When you arrive at the Wild Dunes Resort, you will be immediately wrapped with southern hospitality of the beautiful green foliage that surrounds you. Travel along the tree lined road to your final destination at Shipwatch. Now you can already begin to breathe and relax because checking in is easy with parking that is close, convenient luggage carts and elevators to take you up to our home!

So what are you waiting for? Come to our home and enjoy this fabulous get away! Robin, our administrative assistant, walks you through the entire rental process. Robin is efficient and informative, making the process streamlined and easy. Just click and send her an email to get started!

Shipwatch has the best pools in Wild Dunes. There are two pools - one for the toddlers and then one big one with two areas - a general play/swim area and an area for lap swimming. The pools were recently converted to a mineral system versus the old Chlorine system. This is more comfortable and eliminates the chlorine problems. Shipwatch also has a wonderful sand playground with swings, & teeter totters, see the pictures. The Ocean front Gazebo is perfect for morning coffee or picnics anytime. Our rental process is quick and easy, we strive to be helpful and efficient so that you can relax and enjoy your get away !

Excellent condition, very clean, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We loved the deck, were able to walk to the ocean and pool in a minute. We were there for the bridge run and have family there so we did not spend much time at Wild Dunes.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time and for giving us a 5 Star Rating! We are so glad that you were able to enjoy some time at the pool and the beach. The deck is our favorite spot in the villa!

Fabulous Beach Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in this beautiful condo. Master bedroom and both guest rooms were very roomy and welcoming. Great mattresses (I have a bad back so this is important to me!) Living area was roomy and provided seating for a lot of people. Nice and sunny with good views. Kitchen was very well equipped and provided everything we needed - and we did a lot of cooking. Even though we had quite a few people with us, we did not feel crowded in this roomy home. It was clean and obviously well cared for. Parking was great - just a few steps from the elevator. Would definitely stay here again!
