Great location. Short walk to beach on private boardwalk. Nicely maintained pool and green space. Stayed in 106-cute decorations & well-equipped. Plenty of room to store bikes in parking garages under each room. Elevator and lots of carts for hauling luggage. Will definitely stay here again!!

Convenient access to the beach via a short boardwalk. The pool is always great to retreat to after a visit to the beach. This year we stayed in 301 which is an oceanfront unit with a view. It is definitely worth the little extra for the view, and the extra windows in this unit make it a very bright place....

We spend the month of January here each year. Nice, clean, quiet, pet friendly availability. Beachfront, pool, other amenities. We are finishing our stay this year and have already booked next year. Ashley, the property manager, is so sweet, ever ready to help, and just adds so much to your visit!

The 2bedroom condo us clean, quiet but dated. It is pretty small, master closet is on the bathroom. We rented a top floor, so it is quiet..An elevator helps getting supplies to the third floor. My husband liked the condo. I would rent it again for short term, but not long term.

Love this place! Went back for a wonderful Labor Day weekend again. Very relaxing and the beaches were great. Owners updated the décor in guest bath with some cute flip flops. Very appropriate. Hope to be back soon!!

We returned to Shipwatch for the second time this year, and it was once again an awesome stay. The pool was always clean, the property is well kept, and it isn't a huge complex, so it doesn't feel crowded. This is our first time returning to the same place for vacation. We will be back again.

Very soft pillow top mattresses on the beds. I remembered staying here before the minute I settled in that first evening to do a little work. The WIFI was and still is the worst I've ever encountered. That's one of the things I remembered about the place... Sad really. I should vacation I know but I own a small business....

It's in a great location as it is only a very short walk to a good beach area. It is also very close to shops and restaurants in the Village Center. We had a great view of the ocean being on the 3rd floor (Condo 301). Since we were on the top floor I can't comment how the noise would...
