                                                                                                The layout, location and price are good. This property is like two hotel rooms each with 2 queen beds, a balcony, a closet, ample hooks to hang wet items and a full bath with an adjoining open living, dining, kitchen area. The regulation of the hot water needs to be addressed. The showers had ample water pressure and hot water. The concern is it went from cold to scalding which could be a safety issue for children or seniors. It is close to the Lagoon Villas pool. It is a nice smallish pool with some chairs in the shade. For its size it is nicely laid out with large enough steps in the shallow entry for a toddler to play on and a roped off deep end. The location is a short walk to the ocean. The 2nd thing to note is that the closest beach access was to a stretch of beach that had been washed out (this may change over time we were there Aug 2016). You could access if you waited until after the high tide receded and left before the tide returned. For us this meant a longer walk to the next beach access. The upside is since the portion just south didn't have access to the beach it meant if you walked or swam south after the tide started out you had a very private beach. For us, with a 23 month old a stroller to and from the beach was a must not only because of the distance; but because you also have to cross the main road in Wild Dunes to get to the beach.

House is well maintained and plenty of space! Enjoyed having the use of golf cart and extra outdoor amenities for the beach! Plan to come back again and again!

Shipwatch is located on the eastern end of Isle of Palms, away from the congestion and across from a nice stretch of beach. The unit was plenty big enough for my family of 5, clean and had all the amenities we needed. Kitchen was functional, both bathrooms have been updated, showers have plenty of pressure and all of the beds have quality mattresses. Only complaint would be that we spent a lot of time going to Charleston (about 15 minutes away) and didn't explore Wild Dunes and/or IOP enough ... but hopefully, we will be back !
