"Kiawah Island Getaways were the single most responsive rental/vacation company we’ve used in 20 years."
Our 3 teens, my husband and I truly loved our week here. It was about a 5 minute walk to the amazing Kiawah Island beach. The bedding, kitchen and outside deck spaces were the highlights. I loved working with Kiawah Island Getaways – they were the single most responsive rental/vacation company we’ve used in 20 years. I’d recommend bike rentals and the private chef dinner – both made a massive difference to our vacation week.
"honestly, there really was not a thing we lacked"
This past week, my husband and I had the pleasure of staying at The Shade at Seascape on Kiawah Island. We had to go to the Charleston area for business but were not particularly looking forward to the trip due to our apprehension with Covid 19. Unfortunately we could not put the trip off. From the moment we made our booking through Kiawah Island Getaways, we were put at ease.
The Shade, although compact in size, was newly updated with all the amenities we desired. This was important for many reasons but mostly because we knew we would be spending a good deal of our time there cooking and relaxing.
Maybe ten minutes after our booking, we received a call from Shawn, the managing agent (and I believe part owner along with with his wife Jeanette) at Kiawah Island Getaways, I explained my apprehension, and he assured me their staff followed strict protocols regarding cleaning and disinfecting of all contact surfaces.
True to his word, when we arrived, the place was spotless and smelled as though it had been thoroughly scrubbed! Usually with a rental, you need to run immediately to the store for the basic necessities: toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher and laundry soap, etc, At the Shade, these items were stocked!! The dishwasher and washing machine were spotless. The kitchen was full of quality appliances both large and small.
The villa was very tastefully decorated, and a beautiful arrangement of fresh flowers greeted us along with soothing music. A binder listed recommended activities, restaurants and places to shop. Honestly, there really was not a thing we lacked. For relaxation, Kiawah’s breathtaking beaches were less than a 2-3 minute stroll. And if you felt too lazy to go to the beach, the villa had a cozy screened in porch with Adirondack chairs and a ceiling fan for those hot August days!! As you might guess, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be returning!
"the condo was lovely and you all were fun to work with"
Had a wonderful time! Thank you Kiawah Island Getaways for a fantastic family celebration. The condo was lovely and you all were fun to work with. Look forward to our next adventure.
"the kitchen was well equipped and great to cook in"
Beautiful house with gorgeous river views! We loved everything about the house. It was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and great to cook in, which was important given that we ate every meal in the house because of the pandemic. We lived on the screen porch and had views of birds, dolphins and sunsets. Jeanette and Shawn were easy to work with and welcoming. It was very nice to have our rental bikes and beach chairs waiting for us. The only downside is that the housing community is still under construction so there is activity and noise during the week. We would rent this house again!
"management was very responsive to our requests"
Very beautiful beach ( and I live in Sarasota, which is often rated #1 in beaches). Lovely accommodations, very elegant. Management was very responsive to our requests. Kiawah Island is gorgeous. I give this venue 5 stars out of 5.
"allowed us to hear the ocean, feel the breeze, and spend time together"
We loved our long weekend in this beautiful home. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach and the well-appointed kitchen that offered the ability to cook at home. Our favorite spot was the tranquil screened-in porch, which allowed us to hear the ocean, feel the breeze, and spend time together off the beach. We hope to be back soon!
"there were no missed points in our dealings with Kiawah Island Getaways"
Our family stayed at a beach villa June 2020. The property was managed by Kiawah Island Getaways, a very professional and responsive organization. Prior to arriving we had a few questions about the location and local rules. We received a prompt response. There were no missed points in our dealings with Kiawah Island Getaways. Upon arrival the property was spotless and beautiful. Great visit!
"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!
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!
