The “Vista” Villa - This top floor Shipwatch Villa is truly a one-of-a-kind, a special place that is perfect for your romantic escape. You won’t believe the incredible sweeping ocean views!!!
The beach is just a short elevator ride away and is also conveniently located to several restaurants, shops, golf and 30 minutes from historic downtown Charleston.
The Living Room is the essence of comfort with its lighted display cabinets, designer furniture and artwork, TV/DVD with fully stocked DVD library and high-speed internet access. But the star attractions are the two swivel rockers placed in front of the floor-to-ceiling window. From here you can see down the beach all the way to the east end of Kiawah. With the lush dunes, the wide sand beach, the shimmering Atlantic Ocean and the soft blue sky filling your view, it’s a vista so calming, you’ll be in a relaxed “vacation mode'.
The Kitchen has everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal - even if the most cooking you plan to do on your vacation is opening a bottle of wine. Special features include granite countertops, Tuscan tile floors, a farm sink and an oversized eat-at bar which faces the incredible view.
The Bedroom can only be described as absolutely sumptuous! With its rich warm colors, antique reproduction Tuscan bed and cloud-like bedding, leaving the bed each morning may be one of the most difficult things you’ll have to do all vacation. Go ahead and linger; pull back the heavy drapes and watch the sunrise over the shore. From the comfort of your bed you can see the same incredible views as from the Living Room. Step out onto your private balcony and enjoy your morning coffee while watching the beach come to life for yet another spectacular day. This is the place to sit and watch pelicans and seagulls as they fly toward you then swoop up in the air currents.
The Bathroom boasts a wide vanity topped with granite and offering 2 sinks and deep drawers for storage. The Tuscan-tiled tub enclosure shows off its beauty through clear glass doors. An original oil painting and individual framed mirrors adorn the walls. You can even see the incredible ocean view in the mirror’s reflection.
The villa is accommodates two adults and one child (12 or younger).
We own and rent four of the finest villas on Kiawah. Aside from the one mentioned above, we also have a one bedroom beachside Seascape villa with a wooded-view and two deluxe two bedroom oceanfront villas (one located just down the hall from this one and the other at Windswept).
Kiawah Island has it all for a romantic getaway.
Beach: Swim in the calm waters of the Atlantic or simply stroll Kiawah’s incredible 10-mile long unspoiled beach from one end to the other even at high tide. Watch the seagulls fly overhead and the pelican dive for their dinner while the dolphin play in the water and the shrimp boats troll in the distance. Bring your fishing pole and try your luck at surf fishing.
Biking, Hiking and Wildlife Viewing: Kiawah has over 30 miles of safe, paved paths which meander through woods and past lagoons. These are home to alligators, turtles, deer, egrets, herons, and a host of other shore birds.
Bride’s Magazine named the Charleston area, highlighting Kiawah Island, as one of the world’s best post-wedding destinations for honeymooning couples. Kiawah Island is also rated as having the 'Second Most Romantic Beach in America' by National Geographic Traveler.
