“Shipwatch A303 - Nice, Owner was very helpful with questions”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Shipwatch in Wild Dunes. The owner was extremely easy to deal with and answered questions promptly. The rental contract was handled through Wyndham Vacations once we agreed with the owner on a price. This was our first trip to Isle of Palms and we really enjoyed being in Wild Dunes. We have two girls, ages 6 and 2 and we felt very comfortable being in a gated community with walking trails and fabulous beach access. Our unit had the best view of the beach as there are large trees in front of Shipwatch. Fortunately, our view was unobstructed as we were above the path to the beach, so there were no trees. The pool at Shipwatch is very nice and the beach/pool were not very crowded during our stay the week of June 1 even though Shipwatch looked full. Our unit was nice and extremely well stocked with kitchen supplies. The appliances all seemed relatively new and the kitchen island helped provide extra space for meal preparation. A couple of downsides of the unit are the washer/dryer is a stackable unit. Things take forever to dry in these units. Another downside is that the complex does not have gas grills. This was a real let down as we love to grill on vacation. It appeared that homes in Wild Dunes had grills but the Condo complexes on the beach did not. This is the first time we have ever stayed at a condo on the beach and were not able to grill. Another downside was that one of the chairs in the family room seemed wet and it never dried out. Last downside is that the parking is extremely hard to navigate on the ground level of the complex. If you have a large vehicle I would suggest parking it outside. I did great all week until the day we left when I scraped one of the posts going out. There were posts everywhere and they are hard to avoid in a van or SUV. There is parking outside. I would suggest using that.
