Comment from one of our April 2013 guests about the "Vista at Shipwatch"
"We've stayed at this unit several times and also other units owned by this company. The photos don't do the units justice. They are exceptionally clean and
very well appointed. The owners make every effort to ensure you enjoy your stay. From beach towels, flashlight for night walks on the beach to comfortable
beds and furniture, everything is provided. There is also a wide array of books about Kiawah and the surrounding islands as well as information about local
restaurants and activities. We are big fans of Kiawah and the Charleston area and cannot imagine renting from anyone but Shawn and Jeanette."
Comment from one of our April 2013 guests about the "Shade at Seascape"
"Great place to stay! Exceptionally clean with lots of amenities. We enjoyed bike rides in the morning and going to the beach in the afternoon. The beach
is a very short walk from this condo. The owners go out of their way to provide a great experience for their guests. A lovely condo to rent when visiting Kiawah Island."
Comment from one of our April 2013 guests about the "Sunny Day at Turtle Cove"
"It was great, it was clean, it was very cozy & homely and it felt very comfortable. We loved the serenity of home and the environment. The villa was equipped with
everything we could want in a vacation place, and its location on the island was convenient to everything. We enjoyed cycling with the kids and heading down to the beach.
Working with Jeanette was so easy she made us feel comfortable when I booked our stay. Thanks for a wonderful vacation - we will definitely be back. "
Comment from one of our March 2013 guests about the "Mariner at Mariners Watch"
"My wife and I had a delightful stay at this Kiawah Island villa rental the last week of March. It is as-described with a very short stroll to the beach. This being our
first visit to Kiawah we liked it better than Hilton Head. The proximity to the wonderful city of Charleston made for a very interesting vacation of food, history,
shopping and general exploring during the early cool Spring bloom. The relaxation of the villa was perfect for the remainder of the days. The unit was fresh and
clean and fully stocked with essentials to make for a comfortable stay. No complaints and we will be coming back soon."
Comment from one of our March 2013 guests about the "Mariah at Windswept"
"We stayed here for our Spring Break 2013. We are a family of 4 and this condo was just perfect!! I loved having things already provided such as coffee and sweetener.
The linens were luxurious and the condo has been very well maintained. We will definitely use Kiawah Island Getaways
again. Thanks for a great week!"
Comment from one of our March 2013 guests about the "Escape at Windswept"
"The location of the Escape
was perfect for our stay on Kiawah Island. We could see the surf from our window
and hear and see it from our balcony/porch, just as the photos revealed. The Escape
was lighted, fragrant,
spotlessly clean, and welcoming when we arrived at dusk. When booking, I spoke with Shawn who answered all my questions completely. My sister and
I needed a break from sorting, cleaning, and probate appointments because our Mother passed away in January and our Daddy died in February. We were just overwhelmed with fatigue
and grief, so the Escape
was perfect for us. Thank you so very much for this wonderful beach experience.
It was quiet, peaceful and refreshing for us. We would definitely recommend Chez Fish for fresh Seafood to eat in or take out. In Charleston we especially liked the southern
seafood at Charleston Crab House. Shopping at the Tanger Outlet east of Charleston was therapeutic! Thank you Jeanette and Shawn for the Escape! We will definitely come
again and recommend you to our friends and relatives!"
Comment from one of our March 2013 guests about the "Vista at Shipwatch"
"The Vista villa provided us with the very best Kiawah Island has to offer in terms of cleanliness, view, location and upscale decor. From our initial contact
with the Lawsons to our departure can only be described as five star++. The Vista lacked nothing -- every single thing you could possibly need or want, including
what you can't even imagine, was provided. Personal touches were evident in the decor throughout, and much appreciated. We hated to leave and hope we have the
great good fortune to return!"
Comment from one of our December 2012 guests about the "Sandpiper at Shipwatch"
"The property was exceptional from arrival to departure. The welcome was gracious and easy, the beds dreamy, the view perfect and the overall stay relaxing! Every amenity was thought of and
taken care of, the location perfect and the overall experience delightful! We look forward to returning!"
Comment from one of our November 2012 guests about the "Sea Breeze at Windswept"
"My daughter found this condo rental & it was everything it described it as being. The oceanview & the deck were great & were enjoyed for morning coffee & lengthy morning visits.
The furnishings in the condo were very tasteful & up to date, wi-fi was very fast, kitchen great, & bedrooms were very comfortable. Once we got our shower schedules figured out,
we didn't run out of hot water but that once! There was a binder on the coffee table that told you everything you could ever want to know about Kiawah & the area, complete with
personal recommendations & maps. Everything was in top notch condition & very clean. We would definitely rent from Kiawah Island Getaways
again without hesitation. They were helpful,
gave us good information & recommendations, & were very easy to work with & stayed in contact with us before, during, & after our trip."
Comment from one of our November 2012 guests about the "Sea Breeze at Windswept"
"I had a wonderful November getaway at Kiawah Island! The Sea Breeze Villa
was nicely decorated and felt much like "home".
The view was breathtaking. It was so awesome to wake up every
morning and watch the waves roll in. The people on Kiawah Island were friendly and quite helpful. The Sanctuary Hotel's Jasmine Porch Sunday brunch is a "must do". We ventured out to
Charleston and enjoyed a wonderful tour of the city (the Angel Tree is a "must see") as well as a barbeque competition/tasting at the marina. My only regret is that the weather was cold and wet,
and that my stay wasn't longer!"
Comment from one of our October 2012 guests about the "Penthouse at Windswept"
"Want to stay in a beautiful, contemporary condo with all the amenities right on the beach, then the Penthouse @ Windswept
for you! The condo was clean, well maintained, well equipped, and was very nicely furnished. This beachfront condo is the perfect place to listen to the waves crash and relax in style on the deck.
If you like the beach, taking walks, biking, or playing golf then Kiawah Island should be your destination and this condo your accommodation...their the perfect combination! We would definitely
stay here again!!"
Comment from one of our September 2012 guests about the "Mariah at Windswept"
"Our vacation to Kiawah Island was incredible. From our very first communication with the property managers Jeanette & Shawn - to our very last day, everything was first class. Every minute detail was
taken care of from booking the unit, to directions on how to find the property, to places to visit and restaurants to venture to. The unit itself was 5-star - all the amenities you could want and
absolutely immaculate. We loved the area/island and will without a doubt vacation here again. We found Kiawah relaxing, fresh and stressfree. Thanks Jeanette & Shawn for an incredible, first-rate vacation!
Karen & Scott"
Comment from one of our September 2012 guests about the "Mariner at Mariners Watch"
"My husband and I have vacationed at Kiawah Island for several years, and for the last ten years or so we have exclusively used Kiawah Island Getaways
for an outstanding, memorable experience. We have stayed at The Vista Villa
, The Treetops Villa
, and The
multiple times. Just being at Kiawah is a
wonderful experience, but adding the bonus of having Kiawah Island Getaways
provide us with top notch villas makes our experience one that we treasure.
Shawn and Jeanette's effort to provide an extremely clean, well decorated and welcoming environment in each of their villas speaks highly of their intent
to make your vacation stay a memorable one. The extras they provide such as beach towels, a beach bag, cooler, books, games, and much more goes above and
beyond what we experienced before we started booking our stay with Kiawah Island Getaways
. To be greeted at the door of your villa with a lovely welcome sign
designed for you, and then entering to relaxing music and the beauty of the villa itself is defintely just the best way to start your stay. The cooking utensils,
dishes, glassware etc. are very good quality. They really think of it all...even ice cold mugs in the freezer! Even with all the extras, there is also the fact that
Shawn and Jeanette are only a phone call away should you need anything. One evening during one of our stays, a woman and her young toddler accidently locked themselves
out of their villa and needed help. We called Shawn and Jeanette who were more than happy to contact the resort the woman had booked her villa through and were able to
have someone come out and got them back into their place. We just returned home from a wonderful three weeks at The
and we're already talking about our next stay.
Shawn and Jeanette have really worked hard to make Kiawah Island Getaways
something very wonderful for anyone looking for an outstanding place to stay while enjoying all
the natural beauty the island has to offer."
Comment from one of our August 2012 guests about the "Treetops at Shipwatch"
"We have rented with Kiawah Island Getaways
2 years in a row in 2 different units. Both the Vista
last year and Treetops
last month were beautiful with lovely views of the beach.
Kiawah Island Getaways
is easy to work with and everything we signed up for has been there. The units are spotless, totally equipped and reasonably priced from the unit itself to
rented equipment. We will be back."
Comment from one of our August 2012 guests about the "Treetops at Shipwatch"
"My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Treetops Villa during the PGA . This was our first experience renting at Kiawah. I was impressed with how the owners made the villa
so warm when you entered the villa. On the TV was a video/music of Kiawah Island playing.....what a nice welcoming! There really was nothing to bring from home because everything
was furnished down to shampoo, body wash, and hand soap! Location to the beach was nice -
my grandchildren enjoyed it so much. It was nice to have the garbage room close by. Thanks again for a great vacation at Kiawah Island. Shawn and Jeanette were so
accommodating, and made sure we had everything to make our vacation a great one. We will definitely be back again.....probably sooner than my family knows."
Comment from one of our July 2012 guests about the "Steps Away at Oceanwoods"
"We have rented several times in the past in NC, happily, but this rental and property management was above and beyond all our expectations! The cottage, its location,
and amenities are all top-notch. It was apparent that the property owners wanted to ensure that we had everything we might need to have a wonderful stay. The property
clean and well-appointed, and its proximity to the beach was wonderful. I fell in love driving onto the island -- and seeing the cottage sealed the deal. It was even
more beautiful and comfortable than I expected. The property owners provided a binder full of information (in the cottage). It was really helpful as we made our plans
for the week or decided what to do for dinner. I would recommend Kiawah Island Getaways
, without hesitation. I was so sad to leave -- cannot wait to return!"
Comment from one of our July 2012 guests about the "Sandpiper at Shipwatch"
"I am originally from the Carolina's but hadn't ever been to Kiawah. I loved it. The property was so well equipped and all the necessary amenities were there. Great kitchen,
lovely bedroom furnishings and a super view to the ocean. A lot of thought went into the over all furnishings for this 2 BR condo. The owners did a wonderful
job of providing little extras like towels for the beach or a cooler, or games for their guests."
Comment from one of our July 2012 guests about the "Summer House at Ocean Green"
"A clean, well furnished house with every detail covered, down to labeled switches and chip clips. Proximity to everything was wonderful to still be past the second gate.
Our children could bike independently to Night Heron Park and our older guests could walk to the beach easily. Boys caught fish off the bridge just yards away. The screened-in back porch
was key on the water, with mosquitoes. It was a real treat to have a clean and working grill. This house delivered everything it advertised and more."
Comment from one of our July 2012 guests about the "Shade at Seascape"
"This was our second time staying in the "Shade Villa"
at Kiawah and we were again blown away.
The villa was absolutely immaculate. It has every amenity you need during your stay,
and then some, to the point where you truly feel you are "home" even while far away from home. It is just steps from the most amazing beach (which I was thankful for while
carrying two beach chairs, an umbrella, a cooler, and a bocce ball set every morning) and a short bikeride from everything else Kiawah has to offer. The rental process,
itself, could not be easier, right down to the little "extras" like bikes, beach chairs, etc. I could not recommend this place or this company more. We can't wait to come back!"
Comment from one of our June 2012 guests about the "Escape at Windswept"
"Wow! What a fabulous vacation, and it was mostly thanks to a wonderful stay at the "Escape at Windswept"
(1) Rental process went smoothly, the property managers are extremely organized and timely. Answered all questions we had prior to arrival. (2) Property was more
impressive in person than in the photos! Spotlessly cleaned, kitchen well supplied, comfortable bed, and second bathroom was a nice bonus (especially since it had a
bathtub for the little one). All extra equipment we rented was waiting for us on our arrival, and was in excellent condition. Appreciated having plenty of bath and
beach towels. (3) Perfect location for golfing, biking, and hitting the beach. We were impressed with the ocean views from both the balcony and the master bedroom.
(4) Size of this condo was perfect for my husband, our infant, and myself. Might be a little crowded if more than one child or sharing with another couple. (5)
I would definitely recommend this property and Kiawah Island Getaways
to others. Have rented from several owners on VRBO, and this one is top notch. Only thing
that was a little bit disappointing was not having access to the pool at Heron park; looks like lots of fun for kids. We will definitely return someday!"
Comment from one of our June 2012 guests about the "Vista at Shipwatch"
"Everything about Kiawah Island Getaways
is top drawer! We have stayed in at least four of their villas. All are well equipped, well furnished, well decorated, and very very clean! Everything is as advertised!"
Comment from one of our June 2012 guests about the "Shell Seeker at Sparrow Pond"
"We were so pleased with our choice to stay at the "Shell Seeker
". Our priority with small children ages 1 and 3 was to have somewhere clean that the kids could crawl and
play freely. With the high end touches and quality furnishings we truly felt at home. It was so nice coming back from the beach/pool to such a cozy and accommodating place.
We had a great time on Kiawah and will surely be back!"
Comment from one of our May 2012 guests about the "Beach Cottage at Mariners Watch"
"This is our second vacation on Kiawah. Both times we have booked accomodations through Kiawah Island Getaways
. The Beach Cottage
is decorated beautifully, so comfortable and close to the beach. The Lawson's go above and beyond making your stay a great one. Both villas we have stayed in have been stocked with just
about anything you could think of. They are friendly, thorough, prompt and organized when making your reservations. I highly recommend a stay with Kiawah Island Getaways
is vacation lodging at it's finest."
