Get prepared to be wowed by the views!! Can see one end of Kiawah Island to the other. So close to the beach and within walking distance to great brunch spot. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. You won't be disappointed!
From afar there always seemed to be good reason to envy those fortunate to live on / visit Kiawah Island. After our visit there ... and especially at this condo with a view ... I now appreciate Kiawah so much more. If you're looking for a place just to chill / relax / escape whatever rat race you're in ... this is it. Great condo ... all the amenities. Spectacular ocean view ... actually, that may be an understatement ... endless / beautiful beach ... privacy galore. Close your eyes and take in the fresh ocean air ... allow yourself to drift away ... and you will leave with your batteries recharged ... refreshed. Been around a few years ... visited lots of rentals ... and I'm convinced when someone coined "life is good" he/she was thinking of Kiawah ... and this condo. It just doesn't get much better ...
We've taken beach vacations all along the gulf coast and the Carolinas. Kiawah is the most family friendly and relaxing beach we've ever visited. The condo is perfect and offers an amazing panaramic view of the beach, and the wildlife that live in the dunes. My daughter loved sitting out on the wrap around deck to watch the dear and the waves. Being on the top floors offered almost complete privacy, and the condo is comfortably furnished for several people and is kid friendly. Only a short (and very pleasent) walk along the boardwalk to the beach. We love it and will definitely be back!
The condo has all one needs for a perfect beach vacation. The beach views from the balcony and through the huge windows are amazing. Sitting on the rocking chairs on the balcony while drinking coffee and reading allows for a relaxed time....
The kitchen is well-equipped and the huge dining room table provides plenty of room for enjoying meals. The bedrooms are nicely decorated and provide comfortable sleeping space for about 10 people. Everything is clean and well maintained.
Kids enjoy the short distance to the beach and all the wildlife on the island. Kiawah is also perfect for bike tours, golf, etc. One of our favorite spots is the ice cream shop at Bohicket Marina on Seabrook!
This was our third time at the condo and won't be the last (I hope).
I can't add much more about this place than has been already commented in the other reviews, except that we have visited Kiawah over 30 times, and in the past 5-6 years we have stayed exclusively here in this condo at Shipwatch. Shipwatch is toward the west end of the ten-mile beach and is far less crowded in high season than other parts of Kiawah. It's also about a mile from Captain Sam's inlet, the western end of the beach, so it is easily within beachwalking distance to the most gorgeous low-tide beach acreage you'll see on any beach anywhere. This particular condo is by far the best of the condos in Shipwatch, and we've stayed in 4-5 other units. In the top level and next to top level you can stand in the corner of the L-shaped decks and see the full panoramic sweep of the ten mile waterfront. Not to forget the great interior amenities and the sound of the surf at night. It's unlikely that there's any other beachfront place on the island with this kind of ambience. It's definitely worth returning to, many times.
Other nearby activities include: bicycling, playing tennis, golfing, taking nature walks, kayaking, hiking, boating, fishing, star gazing, and viewing both sunrises and sunsets are just a few of the many activities that you will enjoy during your visit to Kiawah Island. Golf at one of the five world-class golf courses on the island or enjoy a game of tennis on one of Kiawah Island's many courts. Kiawah offers ten miles of sandy beaches that have been described as among the most beautiful in the world. Bicycle along the beach or on any of the bike paths that are located for miles throughout the island. Historic Charleston is only a 30 minute drive and offers opportunities for fine dining, shopping, antiquing, and sightseeing. Among the most charming cities in the United States, Charleston provides hours of delight from touring the unique architecture to relaxing in a horse driven carriage.
