The Shade at Seascape is a very special place to spend your time on Kiawah, unmatched by any other Seascape villa in its comfort and accommodations.


Located just 30 minutes from historic downtown Charleston, on Kiawah's West Beach, our premier Seascape Villa, the "Shade", is just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean and within a short walking distance to the Straw Market for shopping and restaurants. Each Seascape building comprises 8 villas (4 upstairs villas and 4 downstair villas). Each villa is individually owned and furnished. This lower villa is a private end-unit that offers more space, more privacy and more windows than interior villas.


The Shade Villa offers offers a beach cottage feel with all the comforts of a luxury home...granite countertops, hand-scraped maple wood floors and cottage-style furnishings along with stainless steel appliances, plenty of counter space, CD player, IPod dock station, wireless high-speed internet and two flat-screen tv/dvd combos. Slip out onto the screened-in back porch (complete with adironack chairs and a ceiling fan) and enjoy watching the birds and squirrels play.


The Shade villa master bedroom offers a deluxe king-sized bed complete with a pillow-top mattress, Egyptian-cotton sheets, down-alternative pillows, a down-alternative comforters, duvet cover and a 27" plasma flatscreen tv/dvd. Unlike any other Seascape villa, this villa offers a double vanity in the bathroom along with an italian limestone walk-in shower and a separate toilet area.


This villa is also fully furnished with original oil paintings, handwoven wool rugs, washer/dryer, utensils, pots and pans, cooler and beach towels.

"My wife and I spent a week at "The Shade" and we could not have been happier. The villa was extremely comfortable, clean and well-appointed. The owners were very attentive to our needs. If you are looking for a relaxing, worry-free vacation, this is the place.


Comment from one of our August 2014 guests about the "Shade at Seascape"

"The Shade was perfect for a couple; it was very well-equipped and tastefully decorated. We felt as though we were at a friend's home-very unlike a typical beach rental! We absolutely loved sitting on the screened porch. The unit had the best of both worlds- wooded view and one minute walk to the beach path! In 30 years of renting beach condos, I was really surprised to find workable knives, can openers, etc.! It was not an issue with us, but the pool was a bit of a walk from the unit.

"My wife and I stayed at 'The Shade' for our honeymoon and we couldn't have been happier. Everything was thought of and taken care of for us - beach bag, towels, chairs, bikes, etc.. We also really appreciated the book of restaurants and attractions in Kiawah and Charleston that was left for us. We tried out many of the suggested options there and were not disappointed. Personal favorite part about 'The Shade' - the screened in area. We sat out there every morning with our coffee and watched the squirrels and birds before we went to the beach - complete serenity. We'll be back to Kiawah, and when we go, we know we have a cozy place, close to the beach to stay!"

"We stayed at The Shade on Kiawah and all I can say is PERFECT!!!! The villa was SO CLEAN and SO ORGANIZED!! It was the first time ever that after a week I was not ready to go home. The bed was so comfy and we slept great! The kitchen had everything we needed. The check in was a breeze....we just drove in & everything was there waiting for a relaxing week. No hassle of standing in line for check in...it was all done in advance. Because I am a "clean freak" the cleaniness of the villa was great. No dirty baseboards or corners. We loved biking and just relaxing on the porch. We definitely will rent again. Shawn & Jeanette....you do it right. Thank you so much for an awesome week. The weather was perfect everyday! I guess I should stop......I can you tell....WE LOVED IT!!!!!"


Comment from one of our April 2014 guests about the "Shade at Seascape"

"The Shade" was perfect for our little vacation. The decor is so tastefully done, and you can tell that every detail had thorough attention. I loved when we walked in for the first time, and the television with music was playing. Also, whatever 'smell' is in the condo is so clean. I asked the owners and found out it is Mr. Clean with Febreze in the Vanilla/Lavender Scent. The location was perfect for us. Our goal was to tour the surrounding Charleston area, and we did this everyday using our rental car. We particularly liked returning each night to "The Shade" and relaxing in our own little apartment. We did not want to eat-out for every meal and the accommodations made that very easy and doable. If/when we return to Kiawah we will not hesitate to use Kiawah Island Getaways again for a rental."


Comment from one of our March 2014 guests about the "Shade at Seascape"

"We have never had such a relaxing vacation! What a perfect getaway. The condo is beautiful and includes everything you could want. The bed was so comfortable, we had no trouble sleeping. Everything was top quality, well maintained and very clean. The location was perfect. The Freshwater Market Shops were a short bike ride away. They included a huge supermarket, lovely shops, restaurants and coffee shops. The beach was a short walk from the condo. We cannot wait to go back next spring."


Comment from one of our February 2014 guests about about the "Shade at Seascape"

"My husband and I stayed at the Shade on Kiawah Island for one week of pure relaxation. The condo was beautiful, very clean and all the comforts of home. More than we expected. The location was perfect. A short walk to the beach. We brought our bicycles and spent hours exploring the many miles of bike trails the island offers. We felt like kids again. We decided we would never stay any place else. The owners responded quickly to all of my e-mails prior to our trip. Great customer service. I have told all of my friends about the Shade and recommended they plan a trip to Seascape villas. It was so convenient to have a market and shopping within a bike ride. We can't wait to go back!


Comment from one of our May 2013 guests about the "Shade at Seascape"

"Beautiful, comfortable, and accommodating - can't wait to get back. My husband and I stayed at The Shade villa for our honeymoon recently. This was our first trip to Kiawah Island, and it certainly won't be our last! The villa is just a short walk from the beach and is tucked nicely in an area right off the gorgeous bike trails that are throughout Kiawah Island. Inside the villa, we found everything we needed... a toaster, coffee maker, blender, plenty of dishes and cookware, everyday spices and coffee condiments, beach towels and insulated bag, books and Dvds, even a bike pump! They clearly thought of everything, and this made our stay there so much more special. We plan to return for anniversaries in the future!"


Comment from one of our May 2013 guests about the "Shade at Seascape"

"This was our 5th stay at The Shade. The fact that we have returned 4 times should speak for itself. The owners are organized, communicate well, and most importantly provide an impeccably clean, up to date, comfortable condo. We have been to many different vacation locations, but none beats Kiawah Island and

The Shade"


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 March 2013 guests about the "Shade at Seascape"

"Our week at "The Shade" was excellent! This was our second trip to "The Shade" and it did not disappoint. It was just as it was depicted and Shawn and Jeanette are wonderful hosts. As always the villa was very clean and well maintained and the kitchen was wonderful to cook most of our meals in. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone!"


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 2011 guests about the "Shade at Seascape"

"The Shade Villa was the PERFECT "home away from home." It was spotless, beautifully decorated, and had all the little ammenities (even frosted beer mugs in the freezer, which was certainly appreciated) to make for a truly care free stay. We had an incredible time during our first trip to Kiawah, and will be renting the Shade Villa again next year."
