Overview

Wild Dunes Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to Shipwatch. You came here to enjoy the beach and with the excellent location of this condo, you have a great view of one of the best beaches in South Carolina. Getting to the beach is just an elevator ride and a few steps away. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner on the covered and furnished balcony facing the beach. You have great views of the beach from the Kitchen, Dining Room, Living Area, Master Bedroom and Balcony. So when you get here, you will be able to enjoy the beach from both the inside of your villa and from the outside. Relax and get ready to enjoy your vacation at one of the best beaches anywhere, near a city that is acclaimed for it's history and the friendliness of it's population.

This condo was recently completely remodeled. It has a new Kitchen, new appliances, and new cabinets throughout. The new granite countertops make the well equipped kitchen a great place for you to prepare meals with a great ocean view. The Dining Room seats six people very well and is conveniently located next to the Kitchen which has a nice bar area with additional seating. Once again you and your family will enjoy the meals even more with the great view.

The Shipwatch Condo has the best pool area in all of Wild Dunes. With a main pool and children's pool, there is room for all to relax, swim, or play in the beautifully tiled pool with plenty of lounge chairs in both Sunny and Shady areas. In addition to the pool there is a nice children's playground and a beachside gazebo on the lushly landscaped grounds for all to enjoy.

Wild Dunes is just 17 miles from Charleston and only 6 miles from Mount Pleasant. There are many good dining and shopping areas very close by. The history of Charleston is interesting and easy to get involved with, so start making your plans today and come enjoy the beach and all the rest this area has to offer.

Listen to the sound of the surf and enjoy the view!

  • 5 of 5

While Shipwatch is an older complex, the condo has been nicely updated with granite counter tops, hardwood floors, and comfortable furnishings- cozy couches! The décor is tasteful but not fussy. The kitchen is well-appointed. What we loved most about the unit was the view of the ocean from the balcony and proximity to the beach. We kept the sliding doors open most of the week so we could hear the sound of the surf. The complex pool was not particularly inviting and is in need of renovation but on the warm days we preferred to be on the beach. Shipwatch is located in Wild Dune Resort which has great biking/walking paths nestled between palm tree lined roads and lagoons. You can rent bikes for a reasonable fee in the resort. It is a 35-45 minute ride to downtown Charleston(depending on the traffic) with beautiful, historic homes, great shopping, and fabulous restaurants. We felt we had the best of both worlds- a beach and city vacation rolled into one!

Beautiful space - lacking in cleanliness and good rental property management

  • 2 of 5

The condo is gorgeous - great view and great proximity to the beach. Clearly has had updates in recent years and good amount of space. Rental property management leaves much to be desired - the condo was not clean, sticky counter tops, visible dirt on the floors and dirty dishes (i.e. coffee drops in mugs, lipstick marks on glasses and visible direct on dishes). Spent first 30 minutes plus cleaning the condo - purchased Swiffer on vacation to get the floors clean. Additionally, during our stay, we immediately discovered that the washing machine did not work. We contacted the Wyndham Vacation Rentals and they were aware of the non-functional washing machine. We were informed that multiple attempts had been made to honor the warranty on the unit and get a mechanic to repair it but the connections were not successful (i.e. mechanic would leave before point of contact arrived to let them in during the window of time, etc.). Seeking a solution to the washing machine was a daily activity until it was replaced on Wednesday (we began our stay on Saturday). It was inconvenient, time consuming and frustrating. Mostly because it was not an issue for which the rental company was unaware prior to our stay and should have been addressed when the property was vacant.

I'd stay again for the views, the amenities and the price - but would not search under Wynham Vacation Rentals for future properties.

Owner's Response: Hello Amber, I am sorry our property manager was not able to get the new washing machine put in prior to your stay. Prior to your stay the condo owner was there and tried to have it fixed but when that did not work, they arranged for a new machine to be installed. Apparently it took longer than they thought to have it put in. As to the cleanliness, I again apologize. We use our own private cleaner for the condo as we have been very satisfied with this individuals work for a couple of years now. Unfortunately our cleaner was away just before you arrived and a backup was used. From your note I can see this did not work out well. If you ever run into this situation again please complain to the owner or their representative. I feel sure they would do the same thing I would do and that is to have a cleaner come out and clean until you are satisfied. Please try us out again, as you mentioned the condo and view are great and the owners pride themselves on the cleanliness and would like for you to see this on your next visit.

Amazing location! Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was a first stay in Wild Dunes and it was nothing short of fantastic. The beach is pristine and the condo was clean and exactly as described. The view from both balcony's were gorgeous! The pool and beach were located within a very short walking distance from the condo. Wild Dunes had wonderful amenities, like a spa, bike rentals, amazing restaurants and free family activities in the square at night. We had one small issue with the microwave not working. We called maintenance and we had a microwave delivered that day and then a brand new one installed the next day. VERY quick service! This vacation was nothing short of perfect. Thank you!
