Comment from one of our November 2013 guests about the "Escape at Windswept"
"We opted to enjoy our pre-holiday Thanksgiving celebration on Kiawah this year. We were so excited to be near the Ocean and the History of Charleston and the
surrounding area. We were pleasantly surprised by this delightful find "The Escape
Kiawah. Comfortable, with all the amenities at your fingertips, a cozy bed to jump into and enjoy the beautiful day breaks on the ocean. The kitchen had all the
utensils, pots, pans so you can enjoy your own cooking and yet there are so many great restaurant finds in the area. Our hosts provided a great book of finds
and delights in the area for us to search out. No detail was missed. A truly comfortable condo with Kiawah charm and European ambiance. We hope to return again.
Comment from one of our July 2013 guests about the "Escape at Windswept"
was the perfect condo for our recent stay on Kiawah Island! We recently took our
8 month old and found the condo to be perfectly equipped for our trip. No detail has been forgotten in this meticulous condo, every comfort we needed was
at our fingertips!!!Seconds from the beach- amazing view of the ocean from both the bedroom & living room. Perfection - we highly recommend this condo (and we are hard to please travelers)."

"My husband and I just spent a wonderful week in Kiawah at this beautiful villa. We've been going to Kiawah for over 20 years and this is one of the nicest and
easiest rentals we've ever experienced. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary so it was perfect for just the two of us. Beautfully decorated, all the
neccessities (2 baths certainly didn't hurt) totally spotless and so close to the beach with a view of the ocean from the living room and master bedroom. What more
could one want? Not sure when we'll get back to Kiawah, just the two of us, but when we're able to.... we'll definitely check out staying at this villa again!!"

"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!"

"Beautifully decorated, all amenities I needed at my fingertips. Listing exactly as described and photos reflected the property's appearance. It even exceeded my expectations!
Kiawah Island is exquisite area, we will come back again!."

"The villa is gorgeous - very nicely decorated. The views of the ocean are great especially from the bedroom. Nice amenities, great kitchen appliances, very nice deck.
The owners provided the best welcome ever!"
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!"
April 2012 Guest Comment about the "Escape at Windswept"
"I can't say enough about the Escape
. The condo was beautifully decorated and comfortable - no outdated patterns, mismatched beachy furniture, or
polyester bedspreads here. (Actually toyed with the idea of contacting the owner to find out their decorator's contact info!) The kitchen was a foodie's
dream - from the amazing pans to the quality cutlery. And we loved being able to cook at "home" vs. having to eat out all the time. The views were lovely
- nothing like waking up and watching the ocean straight from your bed! We could easily get to the beach (best sand I've ever seen), restaurants at
The Sanctuary, bike paths, Night Heron Park, and more. Although I've read reviews that disagree with the approach,
I LOVED having a washer and dryer on site. Less to pack and I could do my laundry before heading home! :) The owners
took great care to provide us with good information of things to do on the island, as well as in nearby Charleston.
We didn't head into Charleston, but I noted some of the information in the booklet being out of date. Didn't bother us,
but I thought it might affect someone else. Ultimately, just a quick call before heading into the city would solve that.
Before starting our vacation, I wished a shorter stay been available. But when we got down to it, having to stay an extra
night in paradise wasn't such a bad thing after all. :) Would definitely select the Escape
again if we had it to do over.
A wonderful 10th anniversary made better by a wonderful place to stay."

"I enjoyed my stay at Kiawah. Your villa was excellent in all aspects. It was clean,cozy,comfortable and made me feel as if it was my own. Thank you
for sharing your home with us and we will surely return at one of your villas. No expense was spared at making us feel welcomed. God bless you and
January 2012 Guest Comment about the "Escape at Windswept"
"Everything, really everything, was beyond perfect.. Paperwork, registration, check-in great. View towards ocean indescribable. Decor from Pottery Barn
(and we really like them). Will definitely go back. Anniversary (47th) meal in Ocean Room at The Santuary will always be a most pleasant memory. "
December 2011 Guest Comment about the "Escape at Windswept"
"Excellent time of the year for a visit. We were the only occupants in our building and there was no one in the adjacient ones either.
Except for one day the weather was ideal (low to mid 60s) which made for enjoyable biking or beach walking activities. The villa was
perfect for us - very relaxing and had all the amenities we could of asked for. Furniture was updated and very comfortable and the free
wifi was easy to use. Carve out time to spend just on the island for either beach walking or bike riding on the 30 miles of trails.
Two attractions near the island are the American Tea Plantation and the Magnolia Plantation and Gardens; both are must sees and well
worth the drive. If planning to sightsee in Charleston, you need to plan for several days to get it all in and make them a total day trip.
It takes a good 45 minutes to reach downtown, so you don't want to be driving to and from the island more than once. We had three full days
to tour the area and it wasn't enough time to see everything and enjoy Kiawah. We will definitely plan another trip to Charleston and will make
Kiawah our overnight destination. Shawn and Jeanette provide everything we asked for and more. This was a very relaxing 30th anniversary vacation
and my wife and I couldn't have asked for better. 5 thumbs up!!!"
