Beachfront villa w/ access to shared pool, beach, or golf, & w/shared gas grill

Enjoy all that Wild Dunes has to offer in this cared-for Shipwatch villa. An easy walk down to the beach, views of the community pool, and being just a stone's throw from the golf course means there's truly something for everyone! You can't go wrong either way. Wind down in the living area and watch your favorite sit-coms or movies on the flatscreen TV after spending the day at the beach or at the shared pool. This beachfront retreat boasts a convenient outdoor shower so you can cleanse off the sand, a shared gas grill, and even a balcony with great views.

What's nearby:
Great shopping and dining in downtown Isle of Palms are just a short three-mile drive from the Wild Dunes community! Consider visiting the local marina nearby, which offers access to watersports, boat rentals, and more - or drive a short 17 miles to world-class restaurants in beautiful historic downtown Charleston. Book a boat tour to truly admire the Charleston harbor and spot some dolphins. They'll allow you to see The Battery, Waterfront Park, the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, Fort Sumter, and Castle Pinckney.

Great place to relax
Laura E. Jan 2022
This is a spacious unit and the owners have considered all the necessities. Enjoyed sitting on sunny porch in the mornings with views of pool, foliage and ocean.
Primary bedroom mattress was replaced during our stay - greatly appreciated.
Only notable item for improvement was that the shower in the primary bath ( which is very roomy and bright) drains very slowly.
Having an elevator in the building made loading and unloading suitcases and groceries very convenient.
Condo is located in a secure and quiet part of the island. No walkable shops or restaurants, if that’s what you’re looking for on vacation. We enjoyed beauty of the area.

Great location, easy access, good security, unfussy navigation, good access to beaches and city

Not so much: challenged window cleaning, no deep cleaning, remnants from previous

Very close to pool and walk to beach is short. Great balcony look out at pool. Only wish it had a gas grill.

This was our first visit to Shipwatch and we can truly say we felt right at home all week. Everything from the location, to pool and beach access to comfort of the condo, we had a fantastic trip. There are always very minor things that could be better or different, but really we had overwhelming positive feeling about it. We will FOR SURE be back in the future.

The lay out was nice. Plenty of room for the four of us. Location was good, close to pool and a short walk to the beach.
Kathy T. May 2021
Location great! We enjoyed our stay here!
Courtney C. Apr 2021
We enjoyed the easy access to the pool and beach. Such a great, low maintenance trip with our two young kids.
Ashley P. Apr 2021
Great location. Beautiful pool and great access to the beach. Place was very clean and nice. The beds were super hard and uncomfortable. Dirty towels from the previous renters were left on top of the dryer. This was my only complaint. Check in was easy and great. I always felt informed about my stay and how to go about getting into the room.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Ashley! We are disappointed to hear the home was not up to the high standards of cleanliness that we hold ourselves to. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager to address with housekeeping. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to hosting you again!

Nice unit in a good location. Pool is great with a perfect baby pool for our 10-month old. We loved that it had a small swing set with a baby swing that he could use as well. Unit includes a couple nice touches like smart TVs in the master suite and living room.
Heather F. Sep 2020
The location was great! Easy access to the beach and pool. Could get a glimpse of the ocean through the palms. The gated community felt very safe for walking or jogging.
IOP is a short drive from Sullivan Island and only about 30 minutes from downtown Charleston.
The condo complex had easy access parking.
I didn’t hear any loud talking or banging from our room, good insulation.
The cleaning could have been better. Needed to run all dishes, pans, glasses, and silverware through the washer prior to use. There was a strange film on everything that came clean in the dishwasher. One pan had to be scrubbed clean of prior food crust.
The vacuuming needed to be more thorough as we found chips under the table in front of the pull out bed.
Overall, a fantastic location- easy park and access in a safe location.
Despite a few cleaning inconveniences, it was a good place to stay and I would certainly go there again.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback and have notified the local manager of your suggestions. We hope to host you again soon!
Melissa P. Sep 2020
Great location. Elevator had no ventilation and very hot. Walls are paper thin and both showers did not drain at all. I would not stay at Shipwatch again.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Melissa! We apologize for any issues you experienced with the drains and for any frustration that may have caused. We encourage our in-home guests to contact our 24 hour Guest Services line, to allow our local staff the opportunity to promptly address and concerns. Our local staff has ensured the drains are working properly. We hope to have an opportunity to better impress you in the future!

Great location, plenty of room for our family of 4, enjoyed the patio, the kids loved the pool.
Andrea P. Jul 2020
This condo was rated a 4-star, instead of 5-star, only because it's a first-floor unit. It was spacious, had the kitchen items we needed, a pleasant balcony and comfortable beds. It's a little disappointing that you cannot see the ocean very much at all for all of the tree tops.
STEPHANE M. Jul 2020
My husband and kids (Ages 5 & 7) phad a wonderful relaxing weekend at this beautiful condo! Easy walk to the beach and pool. Beautiful bathroom renovations. We can’t wait to stay there again!!
Jason P. Jul 2020
Condo was clean and perfect for the weekend. It's well maintained and a short walk to the beach. Kitchen is well stocked with plates, pots & pans, and both bathrooms had a pair of towels. I would've preferred a few extra washcloths and towels, so that we wouldn't have to use the washing machine daily.
There were a few negatives. The walls of the condo are not sound proof and you could easily hear the neighbors. Both the king size bed and twin beds had very hard mattresses.
Overall, a great stay and perfect for the long holiday weekend.
Michael F. Jul 2020
This condo was located on the beach with a pool view. Very clean and nice. 1st floor location made access very easy. Beautiful beach!!!
karen k. Jul 2020
We loved the location. Condo was very nice. Linen supplies could have been more adequate. Would also have loved a kerig.
There are no beach chairs or toys but we rented chairs from chunkys great service.
Joann P. Oct 2019
Everything was very nice but had trouble finding office staff and the beach equipment we ordered also the internet and cell phone service was very poor
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world-class service.
