This spectacular Villa is a first floor 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath unit on the Oceanside of this 4 story complex. Outside of the large living room deck or either of the decks off the bedrooms you can listen to the Ocean surf and take in the wonderful Sea air. Since we are first floor the protective dunes inhibit the Oceanview, but you can smell and hear the wonderful Kiawah surf. This Oceanfront Villa is just steps from the private beach boardwalk.
Kiawah Island is a great family vacation destination, and this beautifully furnished 2 Bedroom will accommodate you very nicely. The living room is very comfortable and has a large flat screen TV. It also leads to your private balcony, which is steps away from the private beach boardwalk. The master bedroom has a king bed and a full separate bath. The sliding doors lead to your private balcony with table and chairs, great for afternoon or evening relaxation. The master has a large flat screen TV, a large closet, and a desk area for your laptop with free WIFI. The second bedroom boasts two queen beds and also has a separate full bath. This room can accommodate four with its large closet. It too has a large flat screen TV, and sliding doors to a private balcony.
The kitchen comes fully equipped, boasts stainless steel appliances and automatic ice maker, and is great for preparing those beach lunches or gourmet dinners. Just off the kitchen is the dining table area with seating for four. There are additional stools for seating on the kitchen island. Connected to the dining area is the comfortable and relaxing living area, great for watching a movie or playing your favorite card game after a day at the beach. This room has a sliding door with private balcony with a table and chairs, and leads directly to a very inviting lawn area and direct beach access.
The Villa is very conveniently located to all of the Island's amenities, including golf, tennis, shopping, dining and those quaint trips to Charleston. The Island has ten miles of wide sandy beach perfect for sunning, biking, kite flying, walking, running, shelling, dolphin watching, building sand castles, or just simply relaxing with a good book and cold beverage.
The bike paths wind around the entire Island, a great way to experience the beauty, serenity, and wildlife that the Island has to offer. It also goes to Freshfield Village shopping area, perfect for your morning Joe or afternoon ice cream treat. Freshfield Village offers a number of great dining choices, shopping, and a large grocery store.
Kiawah Island golf is simply outstanding and known around the world as one of the premier spots. It is also rated as one of the top Tennis Resort distinctions by Tennis magazine. The Villa is located within walking distance to some of the best composition courts, hard courts, and lighted courts for evening play.
The Villa is perfect for families wanting to enjoy all the Beach has to offer. We try to keep it stocked with plenty of beach towels, sand toys, binoculars, coolers, and even flashlights for romantic evening walks. There is a free laundry room just down the hall so no need to pack the house to go on vacation. Being just steps to the beach also means you don't have to pack for the day at the beach, as it is only a minutes walk to the beach from the Villa. Head back for lunch or a afternoon nap, restock the cooler or grab some sandwiches and fresh fruit. A quick walk back to grab the camera and a bike and head down the beach to the Kiawah river inlet to watch the dolphins frolic. Everything is that close, you'll absolutely love it....Read more

The villa was immaculate! Location was great...a few footsteps to the ocean. Free washer and dryer on site. Enjoyed the restaurants at Fresh Fields. Arthur Teeters was nearby......my favorite grocery store! We enjoyed biking on the beach and watching the dolphins. Charleston is about a 30 minute drive and we really enjoyed the city. There was NOTHING no to like about the villa. We are returning next year!

My wife and I went to Kiawah for our anniversary. The Shipwatch villa is conveniently located and fully equipped. The owner and the rental managers are attentive and anticipate every need. We can't wait to return!

Spent a week with two girlfriends at this well-maintained condo w/all the comforts of home. We biked a lot so didn't use the beach towels but noted that the closets were well-stocked w/beach toys, towels, coolers and also plenty of card games and books for quieter times. But we did enjoy the balcony off the living room for great afternoon sun with our wine and cheese/crackers snack time! Ditto the manicured lawn for soaking up some sun during our early spring (=cooler temps) trip. Very convenient location to Southern Kitchen for great breakfast/brunch and all the shops at Freshfields and only about 45 mins to Charleston incl parking. Condo is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Tv in living room has all channels you would want, tv in master didn't seem to but was not a priority. Note that cell phone service not always available inside the condo (probably due to position behind dunes) but we could connect out front so this was fine. Free laundry was a great help and Beachwalker Rentals was very easy to deal with, not the least due to their handy app.

This rental was amazing !!! Four Thumbs up!!! A beautiful villa with a full-service kitchen, beautifully appointed & updated bathrooms (including a dream shower in the Master!), comfy beds, lots of amenities, and most of all location, location, location. Whenever we left & came "home" we always commented "This could not have been in a better location for us!" It is just steps away from the beach, right on the Kiawah bike paths, across the parking lot from the Straw Market, a few steps to the Cougar Point golf course, and a couple of miles to Freshfields (for shopping, restaurants, ice cream, groceries, etc.) Free laundry facilities, Tommy Bahama Beach Chairs, Games, Books, Cable TV, Free WiFi, (plus a CyberCafe in the Straw Mkt)... we can't imagine how we could have asked for anything more !!! Check-in and Check-out was a breeze! We will definitely be back !!!

We just got back from staying at this condo and have to say we were more than pleased with the accommodations. We have a son in a wheel chair and the rooms were spacious enough for us to maneuver his chair without issue. The decor is welcoming and comfortable, and I agree that the bedrooms are to die for. Best condo we have stayed at in a very long time.

We spent our honeymoon on Kiawah Island for a week and loved this condo right on the ocean. Everything about it was perfect. It felt so clean and we loved the updated kitchen. The bedrooms were very large and quite comfortable. With it being to close to Fresh Fields Village, we decided to eat many meals there and they were delicious. Even though it was still a little chilly, we loved to go on the beach which was right out our back door. Perfection. We will definitely be going back here. We had an amazing time.

Our family had a wonderful time at this Shipwatch Villa. It was such a treat to have an oceanfront stay on Kiawah! The villa was very stylish and well decorated along with being very comfortable. We found the beds and the linens also to be of very high quality. Our temporary home was very well stocked with all the things you could need for a great beach vacation and also lots of back-up entertainment in case of bad weather. Our family is looking forward to visiting this Shipwatch Villa again soon, and would highly recommend this property.

Have rented this same condo for the past 3 years. Well cared for, clean and comfortable. Owner great to work with. Walking distance to Cougar Golf Course. New family pool facility right accross the street. Great Value.
Thank you for your review, we do appreciate it. Guests should note that the new pool is for Kiawah Island Resort guests only, we do not have access to the pool. The good news is that the Ocean and beach are even closer to the Villa than the pool.
