Located on the first floor above the parking garage this unit has great beach and ocean views from the Living Room, Dinning Area, Kitchen and Master Bedroom. Shipwatch is located on one of the widest parts of the beach so there is plenty of room to enjoy the sand and water but it also has one of the nicest pools in Wild Dunes.

Why Janet and Mike Ramsey chose Charleston Area

We knew the first time we saw this condo it was special and hope to share it with select vacationers looking to enjoy the beach.

What makes this condo unique

The views are spectacular and a mirrored wall gives ocean views from every angle. The updated decor is clean and bright. The kitchen is fully equipped and even has a Sub-Zero refrigerator to keep your food and beverages cold and ready to enjoy. Both bathrooms have tile showers and wand shower heads. Three TV's, a DVD player and Ipod dock-able stereo take care of entertainment needs.

Beautiful condo with great access to beach and pool

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation and it was great! The condo was equipped with everything you need for your stay.

My husband and I fell in love with our bed which made it hard to get moving but the view and access to beach made up for that! We had two teenagers and a one year old with us and everyone had something to do and really enjoyed themselves. I appreciated the privacy and safety of the beach area, everything was family friendly oriented. We look forward to returning next year for more great memories!

Best condo I have ever vacationed in

  • 5 of 5

This is our second vacation at the condo and we plan to come again next year. You will find everything you need when you stay there and be sure and check the 2nd bedroom closet for extra things for the kids to take down to the ocean.

Janet and Mike have equipped the kitchen with about anything you could possibly need with regular coffee pot as well as a Keurig. I think there were more pots and pans than I have at home!!

One of the very best things is that the condo is on the 1st floor (above garage) with a beautiful view of the ocean. The elevator was out of order for a few hours one day and only having to walk 1 flight of stairs was much appreciated.

I HIGHLY recommend this condo!!!

Nice property with great access to beach and pool

  • 4 of 5

I recently returned from a long weekend on Isle of Palms at Shipwatch Villas. The condo is right on the beach and the pool on the property is great. There is even a 1.5 foot pool for little ones which worked out well for my 2 year old. While it's smaller than it appears in the pictures (the mirrors on the wall in the photos give it an illusion of being bigger), the condo is very nice. My only complaint is that it was not spotless. From a distance it looked clean, but the place could definitely use a deep cleaning, including the decorative things around the condo (which had a film of dust/sea salt on them), the floors, and the balcony. In addition, there was a dirty bath mat and some dirty towels left behind from a prior use, as well as some dirty silverware put away in the kitchen drawers. The owners should reconsider the cleaning company used and then it would be 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It has been addressed with housekeeping. The mirror on the wall does give a beautiful panoramic view of the ocean, which is nice.

Great location with gorgeous beach view

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful updated condo with all the amenities to make it feel like home. The décor is elegant and comfortable at the same time, with everything you need to cook a meal in the beautiful kitchen and dine on the balcony with an amazing view of the ocean. Our only complaint about the condo was the extremely small hot water heater. We have a family of four, and only one of us could take a shower at a time....and only a 10 minute shower...before the water turned cold. Using one of the larger closets in the master bedroom to accommodate a larger hot water heater, or better yet, a tankless unit would make this property much more appealing. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful place.

The Property was as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a just right for our families spring break. All the areas where as shown in the pictures. The view was assume especially at sun rise. The kitchen had every thing we needed and the Sub-Zero is a nice bonus. We would definitely recommend this to our friends. Thanks for letting us stay at your home.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first visit Mike and Janet's condo and to Isle of Palms, it will definitely not be my last. My family and friends went for a long weekend in April and enjoyed the condo and location. It was convenient to Charleston and to Mt Pleasant and local spots in Isle of Palms. We enjoyed the location to beach and was able to walk on the beach due to weather being nice. Also, Janet was very responsive with any questions and requests.

It was a great place to stay and would recommend to others.
