About Us:

Our first introduction to Kiawah Island was in the 1990's when the closest grocery store was 30 minutes away and the resort was limited to just a few condos and housing communities.  Yet, it is not surprising that the island has flourished as a place of retreat and refreshment.  From our first visit more than 20 years ago to the time we spend on the island today, we can feel our spirits lift and stress melt away as soon as we cross the marsh and drive onto the island.  


As our family has grown, Kiawah has continued to be the place where we long to be.  From the expansive and pristine beaches, to the connection to nature, to the exquisite resort facilities and family activities, to the close proximity to Charleston; Kiawah is our first choice for a weeklong vacation or weekend escape.  Our family has made our home in North Carolina and we travel to the island as often as our busy family life allows.  We have come to love our time at Kiawah and want to offer the same place of retreat and refreshment to you. We welcome you to enjoy Shipwatch Escape as your Kiawah home away from home.  Please reach out through email if you have any questions; or make your reservation today through the "Book Now" button.

Best regards, 

Karin and Brian
