The Sandpiper at Shipwatch (2271 Shipwatch) is the most wonderful place to spend your treasured summer vacation! Bring the kids and the grandparents - there is plenty of room to sleep comfortably (1 king and 2 queen beds).
The "Sandpiper" is oceanfront on Kiawah's West Beach and only 19 miles from historic downtown Charleston. It is just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean (fall asleep with the sound of the surf), and within a short walking distance to golf, tennis, shopping and restaurants. The beach is just an elevator ride away!
Located on the second floor, the Sandpiper offers a wonderful view of the Atlantic Ocean from the living room and both bedrooms. Step out onto either of the oceanfront decks and enjoy the fresh sea air breezes. Enjoy sitting on the deck in one of our four counter-height teak chairs sipping a frozen drink and watching the ocean.

The master bedroom offers a king-size bed complete with a heavenly pillow-top mattress, down-alternative pillows and duvet. Be sure to see photos of this room - the colors are so soothing and relaxing.
The second bedroom has two queen-size beds each with a incredibly comfortable pillow-top mattresses, down-alternative pillows and duvets. Lay in bed and watch the ocean.

About Property Managers, Shawn and Jeanette Lawson (Kiawah Island Getaways):
Shawn's family discovered Kiawah in 1978 and returned year after year for two-week vacations. In 1985 we drove our VW Bug convertible to Kiawah and Shawn introduced me to Kiawah. I remember stepping over the dune boardwalk out in front of the Kiawah Island Inn and seeing Kiawah's wide, sandy beach for the first time - it was so brilliant it practically danced before my eyes. It was during this vacation that the two of us decided to set our sights on moving to this beautiful and fascinating place permanently.
In 1988 our dreams came true and our U-Haul rattled across the Kiawah Island bridge (at that time it was nothing more than a wood-planked bridge). For the next four years we rented a 1-bedroom villa, 4251 Mariner's Watch. Shawn was so thrilled to be living on the island that he spent the additional money required for the personalized South Carolina license plate 'KIAWAH' (which we still own today).
In 1992, we built our first home on the island at 134 Conifer Lane. During construction, I gave birth to our first son Benjamin - he arrived 2 months early in an ambulance outside of the Kiawah Island Fire Station.
In 2001, we purchased our first villa, a 1-bedroom, beachside Seascape (3563) and Kiawah Island Getaways was born. Once we got our feet wet with the villa rental business, it was a like a fever for us. We both really enjoyed furnishing, decorating and maintaining the villas - not to mention the new found fun of meeting and talking to all sorts of people about Kiawah. Because we really enjoy what we do, other Kiawah Property Owners noticed and we started managing their properties as well.
Our whole family loves Kiawah and running Kiawah Island Getaways is a true family-run business. We personally prepare each villa prior to your arrival - because we want your stay to be perfect. We want you to fall in love with Kiawah too...and we know you will!!
The Sandpiper at Shipwatch (2 bedrooms, oceanfront, oceanviews) is the most wonderful place to spend your treasured summer vacation! Bring the kids and the grandparents - there is plenty of room to sleep comfortably (1 king and 2 queen beds).
Wonderful views and location. Fully equipped, very attentive management team. Would rent again. Nice to have one bedroom to sleep four, and additional master. Only negative no laundry in unit,but common laundry very close to unit.
We had a wonderful time in "Sandpiper" at Shipwatch. We loved the condo, the view!, the decorations and furnishings, and how clean it was. It is a beautiful villa. It was the most well-equipped rental, with plenty of towels and pillows and blankets, soap, toilet paper, and trash bags. Those are things that usually aren't provided, and things you usually forget to bring. So it was nice to have that readily available. This was definitely the BEST place we have stayed in from ANY rental on vrbo.com. (We have probably rented about 10 times from this site at several different beaches across the southeast.) The Best! We would definitely rent from Kiawah Island Getaways again when we return to Kiawah.
The property was exceptional from arrival to departure. The welcome was gracious and easy, the beds dreamy, the view perfect and the overall stay relaxing! Every amenity was thought of and taken care of, the location perfect and the overall experience delightful! We look forward to returning!
I am originally from the Carolina's but hadn't ever been to Kiawah. I loved it. The property was so well equipped and all the necessary amenities were there. Great kitchen, lovely bedroom furnishings and a super view to the ocean. A lot of thought went into the over all furnishings for this 2 BR condo. The owners did a wonderful job of providing little extras like towels for the beach or a cooler, or games for their guests.
This was a terrific vacation escape! The condo was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Easy walk to the beach and great biking opportunities. Easy and accommodating rental process, great directions on arrival. We will rent from them again.
My husband and I had such a wonderful time during our vacation on Kiawah...we lead very hectic lives...it was so nice to relax and just enjoy all of our 4 kids in such a beautiful environment. There were so many fun things to do there...(beach, biking, fun activities at Night Heron, painting pottery, playing freeze tag on the beach at night)...the condo was gorgeous, and had all necessities (little things like tpaper, trash bags, hand soap and laundry supplies were so helpful), and we couldn't have asked for a better location! we said our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer...the kids even said when we were driving home yesterday that they wanted to come back for Spring Break! I would highly recommend any property listed with Kiawah Island Getaways to all friends and family:-)
