Kiawah Island Getaways has always been a leader in the field of clean vacation rentals and will continue to do so.

The Sandpiper at Shipwatch is located just an elevator ride away, making Kiawah’s West Beach easily accessible for a morning jog, an afternoon of fun in the sun or a stroll in the evening as dusk settles in.

Of course, there’s more to Kiawah than just the sand and surf.

Within a short walking distance you’ll find a golf course, tennis courts, shopping and restaurants – and historic downtown Charleston is only a 30-minute drive away.

Oceanfront With a Sense of Style

Recently renovated and professionally decorated with custom drapery, hardwood floors, designer furniture and original artwork that ooze Southern charm, this villa has plentiful seating and places to mingle.

In the kitchen you’ll find granite countertops and ample cookware, though the dining room and living room are close enough to carry on a conversation.

Don’t be surprised if people sink into the comfortable living room furniture to catch a movie, or linger over breakfast at the intimate dining room table.
And, of course, we encourage you to kick back in a counter-height deck chair on one of the villa’s oceanfront decks with a cocktail in hand to enjoy the sounds and smells of beachfront living.

At night, retire to one of the rental's 2 bedrooms: a deluxe king-sized bedroom and another with 2 queen beds. All 3 beds have pillow-top mattresses, memory-foam toppers, luxurious sheets and down-alternative pillows – oooh-la-la!

Outfitted in white and pale blue furnishings, these spacious bedrooms embody a sense of relaxation that – when combined with the sound of the surf just beyond the windows – is sure to lull you to sleep. Both have balconies overlooking palmetto trees with the ocean beyond as well as private bathrooms and large flat panel smart TVs (just in case you need a break from the landscape).

The Sandpiper also has free, shared laundry facilities located just across the hall – and we provide the laundry detergent.

The Sandpiper at Shipwatch is a popular vacation villa. If your preferred dates are already filled, consider checking out the one-bedroom Vista, our other property available in the Shipwatch complex.

"It was a very nice place to stay and the beach was greatNew Review"

by A. Greene


The property had a great location but was smaller than expected and had some surprising features like the master bedroom only had access to the bathroom outside the bedroom while the second bedroom had an in-suite bathroom. But it was a very nice place to stay and the beach was great. Had to leave a couple of days early in order to avoid getting stuck there when the hurricane struck and stayed at hotel near the airport. Was somewhat surprised that a request for some consideration was completely blown off and disregarded even though the elevators were turned off and there were threats of flooding. Apparently, the only way to get some consideration is if there was a full island evacuation order. Oh, well, still had a great time in the area.

"They thought of everything"

by D. OQuin

"Proximity to the beach was perfect"

"Oceanfront Getaway with Southern Charm!!"

by S. Karner


Awesome place with plenty of room to give everyone their space when needed. Great location and awesome touches from the company that rented it! Will definitely stay again!

"Beach access right there. Hosts couldn't have been more communicative and helpful. Super all around!"

by A. Cummings


Walked in to sweet touches; lights on, smelling clean, fresh flowers on the table, video on the TV. All so welcoming. Beach access right there. Close to gate and Freshfields Village. Jeanette & Shawn could not have been more communicative and helpful. Super all around!

"The furniture and decorations are beautiful, wonderfully stocked, cozy beds and lovely bedding!"

by J. Peterson


This was our first trip to Kiawah Island and we could not have chosen a more perfect place to stay. We were in town for the 1/2 Marathon and the location couldn't have been any better. As for the villa, WOW!!! The furniture and decorations are beautiful, wonderfully stocked, cozy beds and lovely bedding! We absolutely loved it!

"We had a cooler for the beach, nice wine opener, and anything you would need in the kitchen"

by S. Anderson


The property was fantastic. Very clean, great location, and as expected. All of the small details made it a great place to stay – cooler for the beach, nice wine opener, and anything you would need in the kitchen. Very easy to work with the property owners.

"Soft music was playing.."

by L. Harding


Our rental Sandpiper was wonderful. I have been going to Kiawah off and on since the mid-80s. When we arrived, the atmosphere was so welcoming. There was a beautiful flower arrangement on the counter. Soft music was playing. It was very clean. Our location right on the beach was perfect for my 2-year-old granddaughter. The view was spectacular. We had a great time. Most helpful was the book with menus of local restaurants and recommendations for things to do. We will be back!

"Seamless Process without one Glitch!"

by D. Riedl


We recently took a trip to Kiawah using Kiawah Island Getaways. It was a seamless process without one glitch! We booked weeks before and were instructed by email on how to proceed with payment as well as the details on our rental. Everything was handled efficiently and without delay. The unit was amazing with fresh flowers and music playing when we arrived. The property was immaculate and well stocked for use so nothing was needed. When we left we were given very detailed information on how to leave so our departure was quick and easy. We will definitely be coming back and look forward to using Kiawah Island Getaways in the future!

"Extremely clean and beautifully decorated"

by M. Byram


"We just returned home from our vacation on Kiawah. This villa was excellent and perfect for us! Extremely clean and beautifully decorated.
The location right on the beach is awesome, and very close to all amenities on Kiawah. Shawn and Jeanette are very organized and extremely easy to work with-our rental bikes were waiting on us, as were umbrella/beach chairs. We would definitely recommend this property to family/friends, and plan on returning ourselves in the future! Thanks for having us!"
