"First, Shipyard is a great community and is centrally located on the island. This unit is in a beautiful setting on a lagoon that then overlooks the golf course. We loved the French/European design of the buildings and the way the buildings are set apart and set back from each other your back deck views are beautiful and private, unlike other sections of Shipyard, at Evian you don't feel like you are on top of other units and having to look onto other's decks. Beautiful open views and great bike paths right out the front door.
The unit is very large and open inside. Brand new carpet throughout and very clean. Master is very large and I loved the love seat in the corner with 2 adjoining corner windows providing beautiful views each morning and providing a serene reading nook. Master bath newly upgraded and 2nd bedroom is very roomy. My husband and I, son, and grandson, spent our first Thanksgiving away and we could not have been more pleased with everything. The owner was SUPER easy and pleasant to work with, quick to respond, and wonderfully gracious about our travel dates and accommodating our dog too ! We enjoyed ourselves so much we contacted the owner and requested an extra day and she responded back immediately and was very accommodating and made that happen for us.
This is an end unit, I think a wonderful plus, and it is one of the closet units in Evian to the beach...a 10-12 minute walk, 4 minute bike ride, or you can drive in 2 minutes to the community Beach Club and park if you are wanting to cart a lot of things to the beach. We loved biking every day within the community and discovering the wildlife. Shipyard is so close to grocery stores and great restaurants and very close to Coligny Plaza too. Again, cannot say enough about the central location. This area of the Island and specifically the beach is less crowded and bigger beach than the Sea Pines area. Would return and highly recommend this place."
