"not a single detail was unattended to"

We could not have had a more incredible stay at The Penthouse at Windswept! This is our second time using Kiawah Island Getaways, and there was not a single detail unattended to during our stay. The modern accommodations were elegant and perfectly clean, the oceanfront views were breathtaking, and beautiful fresh flowers were again waiting for us upon our arrival. I have been coming to Kiawah most summers since I was a young child, and we have finally found our perfect rental company; we are already looking forward to our next stay, many thanks again for a marvelous vacation!

"responsive service"

This was our first experience with Kiawah Island Getaways (KIG) after using other property management companies on the Island.

KIG provided a high quality property, special cleaning procedures during the pandemic, responsive service when there were mechanical issues with the HVAC.

We enjoyed a very restful beach view experience following 9 weeks of pandemic shutdown. I highly recommend KIG and will use them from now on.

"tastefully decorated and very clean"

Shawn and Jeanette are very quick to respond to inquiries and have beautiful rental properties. We loved staying at The Shade and we had an opportunity to check out their other properties to plan for our next visit. Each one is tastefully decorated and very clean thanks to Danielle and her staff. They have each one stocked with just about everything you need including puzzles, games, spices, cookware, cleaning supplies, paper goods, cooler, soft absorbent bath towels and fabulously comfortable beds. They accommodated us at the last moment when our travel plans changed and we needed a place to stay and we really wanted to be on Kiawah. They even set up our bicycle rentals. They provide all of the information that you need for a smooth and memorable vacation. Thanks again for the beautiful fresh flowers that welcomed us and warmed our hearts!

"all of our expectations were met"

We had high expectations after viewing photos and reading the reviews for The Escape at Windswept. Quite frankly, it sounded a little too good. But after staying for a week, we can honestly say that all of our expectations were met or exceeded.

The condo was clean, comfortable, and well-maintained. From the fresh flowers to the plush bed to the well-stocked kitchen, it is obvious that the Lawsons take pride in providing a first class experience. We found everything we needed during our stay, and all of our questions were answered promptly. The handy guide with hand-written notes was a nice touch and helped us with local history, restaurants, entertainment suggestions, and other helpful information. The furnishings were comfortable, the showers had good water pressure, the towels were plush, the appliances were modern, the ocean sound was relaxing, and the view was amazing. What’s not to like?

We are already planning our next stay with Kiawah Island Getaways. Thanks so much for sharing your property with us!

"It was very clean"

Our rental Sandpiper was wonderful. I have been going to Kiawah off and on since the mid ,80s. When we arrived, the atmosphere was so welcoming. There was a beautiful flower arrangement on the counter. Soft music was playing. It was very clean.

Our location right on the beach was perfect for my 2 year old granddaughter. The view was spectacular.
We had a great time. Most helpful was the book with menus of local restaurants snd recommendations for things to do. We will be back!

"check-in process was very easy as it’s basically non existent"

My wife, our 6 month old son, my aunt, uncle, and myself all thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Kiawah Island Getaways (we stayed at The Breeze). This was our first time in Kiawah and it will not be our last.

The check-in process was very easy as it’s basically non existent. The property managers handle all of it beforehand so you can get into your rental and on the beach ASAP.

Upon entering The Breeze, we were all blown away by the decor. You can tell they invested a lot of time and money into making sure no detail was overlooked. It looks straight out of a Southern Living magazine.

The villa is directly on the beach and although the beach access isn’t directly behind the house for our rental, it was only a quick 5 minute walk to the beach.

The linens were super comfortable in all rooms, some of the nicest we’ve had the pleasure of sleeping in at any vacation rental or hotel.

We had an issue with a small appliance not being in the home and the property managers made sure we had it the very next morning. All in all, there was nothing we disliked about the property or the experience of renting through Kiawah Island Getaways.

"immaculate"

Fabulous place to stay!!! Beautifully decorated, immaculate, well appointed, spectacular views, great location. We felt like we were staying in a penthouse right out of Architectural Digest and yet it was very comfortable and relaxed!

The owners are very organized and we arrived and departed without any issues at all! Very nice place to stay! We will stay with Kiawah Island Getaways again! Thank you Jeanette and Shawn for this absolutely lovely place to stay!!!

"the unit was in excellent condition"

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 owner is responsive and helpful. We absolutely plan to stay here again.

"they have thought of everything"

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.

"this is an exceptional condo"

This is 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.
