The living area offers plenty of seating, featuring a plush oversized sofa, two cushioned side chairs, and an enormous 42" Smart TV, providing the ideal space for movie or game night with the family! There’s an additional cushioned reading chair perched in front of the cozy fireplace, where you can snuggle up by the crackling fire on chilly nights and get lost in a good book.

The most important component of any Gulf front condo is the balcony, of course! Panoramic views of the shimmering Gulf waters and soft white sands can be appreciated from every angle. With ample seating including a table for 4 and a cushioned loveseat and chair set with ottoman, you can wake up with your morning coffee to watch the sunrise, savor a glass of wine while the sun sets, and even enjoy a moonlit dinner, all while the tranquil sounds of the surf serenade you into complete serenity!

The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream, featuring black granite countertops contrasted with white bead board and glass door cabinetry, top of the line stainless appliances including a professional grade refrigerator with bottom freezer, and an expansive breakfast bar. It is also equipped with all of the small appliances, utensils and cookware needed to inspire your inner chef!

The master suite is furnished to ensure rest and rejuvenation, boasting a king bed with premium plush mattress set, deluxe bedding, flat screen and beachfront balcony access! The attached master bath features granite counters, his and her sinks, fluffy 100% cotton oversized bath towels and deluxe bath amenities, perfect for pampering after a long day of fun in the sun.

The additional bedrooms are equally inspiring, featuring a queen in the 2nd bedroom and a private bath with an expansive glass and tile walk-in shower, a queen in the 3rd, 3 twins in the 4th and two futons in the bonus loft, plus a queen sleeper in the living room, accommodating up to 13 comfortably! The loft is a gamer's dream, hosting a 40” flat screen, a Playstation and a Wii!

Shipwatch offers an array of amenities, with 2 pools, a hot tub, fitness center, and tennis courts. The private beach is expansive and uncrowded, which means no fighting for a front row seat! Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for rental.

Ranked by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the top 5 swimming beaches in the US, Perdido Key is nestled amidst the pristine shores of Florida's Emerald Coast, and is rapidly becoming a favorite vacation spot for those looking to enjoy the tranquility of coastal living without the crowds and commercialism. The Key offers an abundance of recreation and activities, including fantastic restaurants, championship golf courses, water sports and lovely shops and boutiques. The Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola is only 15 minutes away and is great for the whole family! (not to mention admission is free!) Orange Beach is only 10 minutes away, hosting tons of restaurants and shopping, a Rave movie theater and a 10,000 seat outdoor amphitheater where some of music's biggest names perform year round.

You will also enjoy the services of a local liaison that will see to your every need throughout your stay with the premier rental company in Perdido Key, offering you luxury extras like fine linens, oversize monogrammed bath towels, and deluxe bath amenities.

Very clean, well stocked, great location, beautiful beach

  • 4 of 5

This is an older facility but in very good condition and very well stocked right down to the ice maker in the kitchen which was a welcomed surprise. Also, the linens and towels provided were in excellent condition. The beach area was ideal. There is only one pool (unless you want to cross the road to the building on lagoon side) but it was only crowded one afternoon. The parking is a problem if you have more than 2 cars. There are only four units with 4 bedrooms. These units should be given 3 parking spaces. We were able to get a third pass but told that during busy season this may not be possible and we could not get the third pass until Monday because on site office is closed on weekends. Our third vehicle was ticketed Saturday night but I called the security company and they advised what to do until Monday. There was no elevator but we managed. I would have preferred having a 4th bathroom but we managed with 3. There is a skylight in the loft bedroom which is nice for bringing in sunlight during the day but it needs to have a shade over it so that those sleeping in the room are not awakened at 6:00 am when the sun comes up. Overall we had a great week and I would go back. It was a great unit for size, location and price and we loved the area and especially the beach. The sand is beautiful and does not absorb heat from the sun so is ok to walk on and the water is clear and clean, much better than beaches on the Atlantic.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, Rebecca. We are happy to know that you enjoyed your vacation. Typically during the summer season, most properties do not offer a 3rd parking pass and are very strict about this policy. Thank goodness Shipwatch was not at full capacity during your stay, sot hat you could receive the 3rd parking pass. We can pass along your suggestion for the shade for the skylight in the loft bedroom. We do hope that these inconveniences does not stop you from renting with us in the future, as we would love to have you stay with us again! ~ Sunny Regards, The Luxury Coastal Vacations Team :)

Great unit! The only downside is no elevator or luggage lift! Parking is a problem.

  • 4 of 5

Once again, only giving two parking passes is not acceptable for a 4 bed unit.

The property was nicely furnished and supplied! Pool And beach access are good.

We couldn’t get into workout facility because the Key didn’t work.

Shipwatch 301 C

  • 4 of 5

Property was very clean, well stocked kitchen and updated bathrooms except master tub and shower. The mattresses were very comfy which is important but pillows could have been better quality. Linens are important to me and they were well laundered,newer, and fresh. Plenty of extra sheets and blankets. It was puzzling that a unit accommodating so many guests had only table seating for 6! We were never able to sit down together for a meal and that was disappointing. The balcony furniture was in urgent need of replacement and not useable. As with most condos we have stayed in the dryer took forever to dry a load even though the dryer was newer. Seems like a waste of energy. No recycling of cans and plastic also surprised us as environmentally irresponsible. These are smaller issues and overall the experience was enjoyable. The balcony view is lovely and the beach front location was wonderful. Overall we enjoyed our stay in this property and would recommend it for a relaxing vacation

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback Ellen! We are happy to hear the lines were exceptional and that you found the condo clean, well stocked and the location perfect. We will relay your concerns regarding the patio furniture to the owner and have our operations crew address the dryer. Sunny Regards, Kenzie & The LCV Team

Really nice condo with plenty of room for the 8 of us in a beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

Shipwatch C301 was perfect for the 8 of us, there was plenty of room for the 5 kids to have their space and the views of the beach and ocean are beautiful. We will definitely return to this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback Patricia! I'm sorry for any miscommunication on the paper products.
