...we will be back...
we have been coming to Kiawah for some 40+ years; have stayed in this unit once before. Absolutely perfect location and proximity to beach is amazing!
Only suggestion is making the beach fobs more visible - we had trouble finding them...
Planning to come back to this unit in Spring 2022

Beautiful ocean view
We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and the view of the ocean. The unit is well located, convenient to Freshfields Village and to Mingo Point for kayaking. The decor is somewhat dated but the furnishings were comfortable.

Little Shipwatch
We loved our first visit to Kiawah Island. The room was clean, but we still felt the need to go over with Clorox wipes because the glass tops had finger prints on them. The bedroom linens were green but tired looking. The view and convenience to the ocean was a great. Before we arrived, the office provided us with great suggestions and tips on where to go and what restaurants to enjoy. Bicycles really enhanced our visit.
I do suggest that every unit have an owners manual. There were two TVs with different systems. We couldn't work either TV and had to get someone up the next day to help. That could have been avoided.

Beautiful View, Wonderful Stay
The picture on the listing is accurate, and exactly what my fiance and I were looking for. A beautiful beach view, sleeping with the sliding door open to hear the surf, and sunrise right outside our window. Beach access was easy, both on foot and on bike. Kiawah offers the things we wanted: golf, beach, good food and drinks. And the property was just right. We will be back, and will probably book the same address.
PHE makes it all easy. Pre arrival information was thorough and accurate, and made our stay almost effortless... we only had to unpack and pack! They checked in with us once to make sure everything was OK. Thank you PHE for a wonderful engagement experience.

Pre Holiday Relaxation
Haven’t been to Kiawah since the 90’s. We had our honeymoon in Kiawah and it holds a special place in our hearts. The accommodations were wonderful. It was spotless and a perfect fit for my husband and me. The view...oh my goodness...beautiful!!

shiphwatch condo experience
We had a great experience. Even with bad weather the first 3 days, we got plenty of sun and beach. We were not happy with the club meals - quality and food was way overpriced and did not match the local food and that in surrounding areas. It would be very helpful if we had 2 keys to access the beaches.

Peaceful oceanfront escape
Clean and comfortable condo with everything we needed and in a perfect location. Only steps from the beach. Convenient beach chair and umbrella rentals available (property management very professional and helpful, but did not know this when asked prior to arrival). Easy checkin and checkout. Only one keycard was provided for beach access, which was inconvenient, but the folks at the realty went out of their way to obtain another card when brought to their attention.
Jun 2020
A little bit of perfection
The rental is just as advertised. Perfect location and the view is beautiful, can't get much closer to the beach. Would definitely stay here again.

Quiet Comfortable December getaway
My wife and I were visiting Kiawah Island for the Marathon, and we really enjoyed our time there. The condo was clean and comfortable with a beautiful view of the ocean.

Breathtaking views!
Lovely, very clean and well appointed apartment. The views from the large windows and terrace were truly breathtaking. Amazing sunrises! Just steps from the beach through the secured gate. We really loved our stay and look forward to coming back.

Ocean Front Amazingness
Great views and amazing sounds. Great place to get away to. Price is right too. Like your own hotel suite for a fraction of the price.

Beautiful Kiawah Condo
Lovely condo in great condition. Beautiful mornings having coffee and breakfast on deck - although it does heat up early since not covered so be prepared! Deck is shady late afternoon so great to have drinks there after day of biking and beach. Very comfortable king bed.

2476 Shipwatch
This one bedroom condo was great! It’s perfect for a couple and the location is fabulous. It is very nicely maintained and in very good condition. The kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed morning coffee on the terrace overlooking the ocean. We also spent several evenings having wine and cheese on the terrace. It’s a quick run to the amenities of Freshfields. I will happily rent this vacation home again when my husband and I return to Kiawah.

We loved our stay. The balcony was warm and sunny even though it was breezy and chilly on the beach. We spent quite a bit of time there. Kiawah never disapoints.

Unseasonably cold, but hospitably welcoming!
It was great to be on the beach again, even though the temperatures were very cold for Kiawah! Our condo was cozy and warm, and we had great views of the ocean from both rooms. Made us forget how cold it was outside!

Thanksgiving at the Beach 2017
This villa is ideally located on the 4th floor to provide fantastic views of the icean and beach - sun rise and sun set! Very nicely decorated and outfitted. Perfect for a romantic get-away!❤️

Great view, dated property
We have stayed on Kiawah Island a number of times and this was the first time with a direct ocean view. The view is for sure a 5 Star with a spectacular sunrise each day. The property is definitely dated at a 3 Star, really needs a update especially with tv’s that are first generation flat screens and not high definition. Shower is not at all for someone over 6 tall. Elevator drops you at walkway to beach.

Rental experience for 2476 Shipwatch
The villa was small but very nice, well-maintained and fully equipped with everything one would need. Wonderful view of the ocean. Building is excellent condition, boardwalk to the beach was almost new and the beach is just great. The only negative experience we had was at one of the restaurants in one of the resort communities. This was our first stay at Kiawah Island so we did not know about the exclusivity of some of the restaurants. We called, made a reservation at one of them, inquired as to whether we would be granted access. We were assured by restaurant personnel that there would be no problem. Unfortunately, upon arrival we were turned away because we were not staying at that resort. It would have been helpful if would be noted in our welcome packet that certain restaurants were off limits it would have saved an embarrassing moment. Other than that instance, everything was perfect, truly enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful view
The best thing about the unit was the view. Lovely small balcony, but is in the sun most of the day so to be enjoyed early and late in the day for high temp days. Well maintained and nice decor. The building is older, so design of the units is a bit odd (floor to ceiling window that you can only open four inches for safety reasons; small bathroom; only closet in hallway). However, the building and common areas are well maintained and in a great location. Missing: spatula, dish sponge, soap.

Beyond beautiful ocean views of the sunset and sunrise. The space was perfect for my stay with my partner. We would definitely come back.

Weekend getaway
My wife and I have visited Kiawah every year for the last 27 years. We have stayed at various sites, and this unit was by far the nicest and cleanest we have rented. Plan on returning in October and reserving the same unit.

A low Country Paradise
We travel frequently and this is one of our favorite destinations. In fact we have been coming back to this same villa for 10 years. The ocean is mild and there are many great bike trails filled with nature from painted buntings to alligators and dolphins. Culinary experiences are beyond description - something for everyone. A fantastic place to relax and enjoy.

Perfect Getaway
Location was perfect and as described. I appreciated the height of the deck chairs - the ocean view was not obstructed by the rails. The bed was very comfy!

Falling for Kiaawah
The condo was the perfect location for a short stay at the beach. The view of the beach/ocean from both rooms was great. Plenty of room for two people. Might be tight for more. Kitchen had everything we needed. They even provided beach chairs! We will be coming back, for sure!

Shipwatch Condo stay.
Great venue for fresh air and the ocean. Cycling on the beach is so invigorating, and the bike paths are first rate. We took two kayak excursions in the salt marshes, and learned a bunch about that ecology.
Everyone got the memo on courtesy and friendliness from the front gate to the condo maintenance staff.

Only one complaint. The villa should have
a king size bed. The existing bed is too
small. Other than this one issue, the villa
was delightful.

Our Favorite Rental
We have been coming to Kiawah for over ten years and this is our second stay at 2476 Shipwatch. We have returned to this unit because it is our favorite. We love the ocean views and especially the "pelican parade". It is very comfortable, very well maintained and exceptionally clean. We will be coming back for another stay!

First vacation in 5 years
My son and I had a wonderful time! I haven't been to Kiawah in about 7 years, and it has gotten better. I golfed, we rode bikes, went to the beach, ate lots of good seafood, shopped and just had a wonderful time. Love Freshfields shopping center. There were lots of good restaurants and it is so convenient.

Shipwatch 2476 Review
Overall we were very satisfied with this villa. The most beautifully furnitured and clean apartment we ever had at . The only problem was the small Queen bed. We would have preferred a King size bed.

A wonderful week!
We really loved our stay at 2476 Shipwatch. The unit was very clean and its appearance was like new. We especially liked the beatiful views of the ocean and falling asleep at night to the sounds of the waves. The constant parade of peligans and seagulls gliding past the windows was really something special. We'll be back!!

We found the sliding glass doors very difficult to figure out - still not sure how they're supposed to lock and unlock.
The bed is too small and the mattress was not comfortable -old?
The views were amazing - beautiful sunrises!
We wish to thank Pam Harrington for her prompt assistance when a locksmith was needed on a Sunday afternoon - we were back in the unit within an hour.
