Great! Send us a link to photos of your property that are currently online and fill out this form. Kiawah Island Getaways upholds high standards, so you may receive decorating tips and/or renovation suggestions from us.

Need contacts for architects, contractors, and decorators?

If your property needs a boost, we may recommend renovations or decorating improvements to increase rental income. We can provide the right contacts to get the work done.

What's the recommended timeline for renovations?

Most villa and cottage regimes restrict renovation work to off-season. In order to take full advantage of the allowed construction period, your contractor should submit plans to the Town of Kiawah and your regime so they can be approved and permits issued by the end of August. Work should start as soon as allowed in October. All renovation work generally must be completed by the end of March. If it extends beyond that time, you may be fined by the regime or even asked to stop work.
