Comment from one of our July 2019 guests about the “Beach Cottage at Mariners Watch
“An Easy, Relaxing Vacation” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Only 211 steps from the beach, this cottage was perfect! Very cute decor and great amenities including WiFi, washer/dryer, a Keurig, all add up to an easy, relaxing vacation! Kiawah was beautiful and we enjoyed our visits to downtown, about a 45 minute fun drive. We would recommend to everyone!

“A Pleasure to Stay At!” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The property was great. Not many times can you say, the pictures on line don’t due it justice, but in this case it is very true. The property has been completely remodeled in the recent past and was a pleasure to stay at. They had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. I even found a digital meat thermometer to use for outdoor grilling. I would highly recommend.

Comment from one of our July 2019 guests about the “Treetops at Shipwatch
“Everything You Would Ever Need” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This property had everything you would ever need. They provided beach towels, basic needs in the kitchen, movies, a bag to take to the beach… We arrived to a beautiful bouquet of flowers. It was really nice and very clean. The only problem was that there is construction going on next property over and that took away from some of the ambiance, especially during the day hearing the construction noise but hopefully that will be done soon.

“Special Touches” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This was the most delightful condo to stay in. EVERY detail was thought of and so many special touches to make the condo feel like home. The furnishings are very nice and comfortable, the unit has great lighting and pretty views. The beach is a quick stroll through beautiful paths. We look forward to returning to this condo on our next visit to Kiawah.

Comment from one of our July 2019 guests about the “Breeze at Seascape
“An Exceptional Condo” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
First impressions walking in the front door is the beautiful decor, cleanliness, fresh flowers to welcome you and smelled like walking into a spa. The kitchen has all the needed appliances /pots/ dishware you could need. Plus they have a fancy espresso machine. The bathrooms are clean, modern and have fluffy clean towels. Plus they even provide beach towels! Beds were comfortable and clean. Location is perfect with less than 2 minute access (walk-able) to beach. They had bikes and boogie boards waiting for us. Also helpful was there was a good stock of toiletries (soap, dish washing pods, washer pods, face wipes, trash bags, foil, etc). Kids were entertained with art, books and games found in the awesome kid loft. We are looking forward to another family vacation here in the future. Don’t hesitate – book w/ them!! You will not be disappointed.

“Beds were Very Comfortable” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We were so impressed with the condition of this Kiawah Island property. It was so bright and very clean with all the amenities one would need to prepare meals and to enjoy your indoor time while at the beach. The location was great – short walk or bike ride to the beach. The beds were very comfortable and the area was quiet and peaceful. We definitely plan to stay at this property on our return visits to Kiawah.

Comment from one of our June 2019 guests about the “Shade at Seascape
“The Owners Take Great Pride in This Villa” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The Shade is a beautiful villa…if possible even nicer than the photos. The owners have done an amazing job of thinking of every detail needed to make your stay a great one. It is obvious from the perfect cleanliness and perfectly maintained furniture and fixtures that the owners take great pride in this villa. The owners themselves were great to work with. All of their communication with us was detailed, friendly, and professional. I look forward to renting from them again for another great Kiawah getaway.

Comment from one of our June 2019 guests about the “Beach Cottage at Mariners Watch
“Slice of Heaven” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This was our second stay with Kiawah Island Getaways. Our first visit was in August 2016 at The Shade at Seascape and our most recent was June 2019 at The Beach Cottage at Mariners Watch. Working with Kiawah Island Getaways is the easiest vacation planning I have ever done! Every detail is thought of for you; all you need to do is show up and relax! Both properties are decorated nicely and has all the comforts of home. Booking was easy and the communication before, during and after our visits was outstanding. The love that Shawn and Jeanette have for Kiawah Island shows in every detail of their properties. It’s easy why they love this place so much. Thanks for sharing your slice of heaven with us!

Comment from one of our June 2019 guests about the “Vista at Shipwatch
“Amazing Floor-to-Ceiling View of the Ocean” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
If you are looking for a one bedroom five star rental property on Kiawah Island do yourself and your loved one a favor and stay at The Vista. You will be more than happy that you did! My wife and I both highly recommend staying here or at one of their other properties. We just returned from a wonderful seven night stay! This was our second stay at The Vista property. It is a comfortable, exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated property with elegant artwork and high end furniture. EVERYTHING that you will need during your stay has been provided. The kitchen, living room and bedroom all offer an amazing floor to ceiling view of the ocean. The beach is only a short one minute walk away! Shawn and Jeanette, owners of Kiawah Island Getaways, are great to work with. They know Kiawah better than anyone and will answer any questions that you may have in a timely manner. The reservation process was so easy. We will be back in October!

Comment from one of our June 2019 guests about the “Shell Seeker at Sparrow Pond
“We absolutely plan to stay here again!” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
My family (two adults, three young kids) stayed at a Kiawah Island Getaways property for our summer vacation. The unit (The Shell Seeker) was in excellent condition and had pretty much everything a young family needs for a nice vacation. The property managers are responsive and helpful. We absolutely plan to stay here again.

“Two Masters Afforded Plenty of Privacy” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We have always loved Kiawah, and this property did not disappoint. My husband and I vacationed with another couple. The condo was clean, recently remodeled, and spacious. We loved the decor. The two masters afforded plenty of privacy, and beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook a couple of meals. There was even a well stocked spice cabinet. We hope this one will be available next time we visit.

“The Property is Beautifully Decorated” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We spent 4 nights over Memorial Day weekend with our two kids – ages 3 & 8. The property is beautiful decorated and kitchen is well stocked. Beds and pillows all comfy. We ate all our breakfasts in the home and we enjoyed all the appliances we needed to feel like home. Blender, toaster, multiple pitchers for our iced tea and fruit infused water. It really is a great set up. You will want a bike with a trailer to take anything to the beach as it’s a bit of a walk to lug bags and toys. Once at the beach entrance, we parked our bikes there then it’s another 150 yards (?) until you hit the sand. You can rent chairs and umbrellas at the beach but they are set out only 10am-5pm. We enjoyed the natural beauty of the island and the community of this property. We saw an alligator in the wild, blue heron, and we heard whip-por-wills nightly.

Comment from one of our May 2019 guests about the “Surf Shack at Sparrow Pond
“We loved our stay!” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The cottage is well equipped with high end appliances, and cooking equipment. The four bedrooms each have their own bathroom. Outdoor seating was comfortable and a five minute walk to the beach. Will definitely stay again. Kiawah Island Getaways was wonderful to communicate with. Enjoyed their special touches; flowers daily emails, of places to go ,and recipes. Truly wonderful!

“Best Vacation Ever!” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Me and my family stayed for three nights in the Surf Shack and it was the best vacation ever! I had just graduated med school and the hosts had a sweet congratulatory note with flowers on the table when we arrived! This was one of many small touches that made our experience one that we will never forget! Thank you!!

“Seamless Process without one Glitch!” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
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!

“Beautifully Decorated” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Property was beautifully decorated. However, not much storage in kitchen for items that we brought with us. Also bed needs step stool for those of us who are short. Items provided for our stay were great and the management could not have been more helpful.

“Lovely Privacy and a Quiet Little Sanctuary” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had a wonderful time visiting Kiawah! The Surf Shack was adorable, clean and cozy! Perfectly located with only a 5 minute walk to beach and pool. The bike path is easily accessible and the neighborhood is friendly. The pond provides lovely privacy and a quiet little sanctuary! We can’t wait to go back next year!

“Beautiful and Sooooo Relaxing” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We saw a spectacular video, back in November 2018 of a romantic, gorgeous condo overlooking the ocean at The Vista, at Shipwatch. We immediately reached out to Kiawah Island Getaways and inquired about it. They could not have been more helpful!! We booked Easter week, Saturday to Saturday. When we arrived and entered the condo, we realized that it was sooo much better than we had hoped for, and we hoped for the perfect place. We rented bikes and beach chairs with the coordination of Kiawah Island Getaways. We were given there cell phone numbers and advised to call or text them whenever we had a question or problem. Shawn and Jeanette Lawson, of Kiawah Island Getaways, whom I’ve never met, but spoke to or texted them each, several times over the course of the months prior to our vacation, could not have been more pleasant, helpful, professional and filled with that southern charm and hospitality. (We’re from Jersey and that’s tough to find here). It truly was the best vacation we’ve ever had. Check this place out, it’s beautiful and sooooo relaxing.

“Beautiful and Peaceful” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had never been to Kiawah Island before. Wow it is beautiful and so peaceful. Weather was great. Wish we could have stayed longer. My Dad enjoyed his 85th Birthday weekend 😎🏌🏼‍♂️ Ocean course is fantastic.

“I was Thrilled!” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Home is newly remodeled and very close to the beach. When we arrived the home was meticulously clean, music was playing and there were fresh flowers on the kitchen counter. Everything was in working order, and I was thrilled to find a smoothie maker in the kitchen. None of the issues that sometimes come with a rental… no clogged drains, no confusing TV remotes, no dirty windows. We will definitely use this rental company again.

“Romantic Retreat with Sweeping Ocean Views” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
My husband and I recently spent four wonderful nights at the Vista Villa and were so very sad to leave! We came to celebrate a very special anniversary and to “unplug” and get away from it all for a while. I had been looking for a nice, quiet, romantic place where we could hear the ocean while we slept. Not only did we get all of that, but so much more! The Villa looks just like the pictures…is beautifully decorated and you can see and hear the ocean from every room and the most comfortable bed! We were also lucky enough to see the family of deer in the dunes right outside of our window!! Jeanette answered all of my questions right away and made the rental experience a breeze. 🙂 You can literally show up with your clothes and toothbrush, they have thought of everything. Go ahead and book your romantic stay..you wont regret it! We are already planning our return trip to our new favorite place. Anita (Atlanta GA)

Comment from one of our March 2019 guests about the “vV at Turtle Point
“Stunning, Yet Simply Elegant, 3-Minute Walk to the Beach, Near Sanctuary” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The vV was a wonderful vacation rental! Our family of 4 absolutely loved the villa. It was beautifully decorated and had every thing you could possibly need for a great stay. The walk to the beach was so short; we loved the location! We were so impressed by everything. We hope to come back soon!

“Fair warning: there aren’t any “Life’s Better at the Beach” pillows here” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
If you want a crusty spot filled with beachy bric-a-brac, this is NOT for you. Surf Shack is über farmhouse/beachhouse chic, what everyone wants these days. White painted floors, crisp interiors, Sub-Zero fridge, Wolf range, strong WiFi, the MOST comfortable beds/bedding/pillows/towels ever. I have been blessed to travel the world, staying at top notch resorts and hotels from the Ritz Paris to Blackberry Farm to One & Only Palmilla, you name it. I’d take this sweet little enclave over any $18k/night suite, ever! Thanks Jeanette for the top notch stay, from speedy communication to general friendliness.

“Perfection in Paradise” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The Vista at Shipwatch is perfect in every way. From the location to the pristine condition and decor of the interior. The bed is comfortable and the linens are perfection. Every detail has been thoughtfully planned and executed. We’ve stayed on Kiawah many times throughout the years and this experience was the best.

Comment from one of our February 2019 guests about the “Mariah at Windswept
“Always Impeccably Maintained” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We love Kiawah and have always enjoyed our time spent there no matter what the season. Over the years we have continued to use Kiawah Island Getaways as our rental agency. Their properties suit our needs perfectly and are always impeccably maintained. In addition, all items needed in the kitchen, bedrooms, baths and living areas are always in place making it so easy to enjoy our time at the beach. Not having constantly to run to the market to acquire more garbage bags, soap, detergent, etc. ensures we have a more time to absorb lovely Kiawah and its beach. Mariah at Windswept was the perfect unit for two couples-king beds for all! When not outside we loved the ocean views from the dining room table. In the future whenever we can visit Kiawah, we will of course use Kiawah Island Getaways.

Comment from one of our February 2019 guests about the “Shade at Seascape
“It was Perfect!” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This was the third time we stayed at the Shade unit. As always it was perfect. It was perfectly clean and all details were attended to. Only a very short walk to the beach. We did meet Jeanette and Shawn this time and they are wonderful hosts. I do recommend the Shade unit to anyone and everyone.

“Three Glorious Days” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had three glorious days on Kiawah in the Beach Cottage at Mariners Watch. The cottage has everything that we needed, beautifully decorated with comfy sleeping quarters, well-equipped kitchen, laundry, perfectly kept and homey.. even fresh flowers! Jeanette and Shawn are quick to respond to any questions or needs and even sent ideas for places to visit and dine. We are already looking forward to our next visit!
