Owners and Property Managers for Kiawah Island Getaways

When you call us for help, we personally answer the phone. You won’t have to go through a receptionist or track us down through a maze of extensions. If we are on the phone with a guest, you will get our voice mail and we will call you back immediately after we get your message. This is also the case for our guests – we personally answer the phone and because we know all of our properties thoroughly, we can give detailed information to our guests.

We are a boutique Kiawah Island Property Management company offering Kiawah’s finest vacation rentals. Our rental properties are all carefully selected, nicely appointed and extremely comfortable. We are very selective when adding properties to our boutique collection. There are three main qualifications for every Kiawah Island Getaways rental. First, the property must be unique in character – through its décor, through its views, or both. We want our guests to be delighted when they spend their vacation in the property. Second, each property must be located oceanfront, or within a comfortable walk of Kiawah’s beach. And lastly, we enjoy working with owners who make it a priority for their investment to be well maintained, well decorated, and properly managed. Our owners want us to do what is necessary to make their property shine.

We Know and Love Kiawah!!

Shawn and I moved to Kiawah in 1987. In 1992, we began building our Kiawah Island home and, that same year, we started our family. Our first son, Benjamin, was actually born at the Kiawah Island Fire Station.  In 2001, we began purchasing villas on Kiawah and started Kiawah Island Getaways.  By the end of 2006, we had purchased 5 villas and began managing other properties in addition to our own.

We love the island and are very passionate about discussing it with others. And, like you, we are Kiawah property owners.  Knowing, owning and loving Kiawah really helps when encountering so many guests each year that have never been to Kiawah and have a lot of questions about the island. We answer all of our guest’s questions either via email (Jeanette’s job) or on the phone (Shawn’s the spokes person).

2015 Cleaning Crew

One of our Cleaning Crews:
Yvette, Tiffany, Mandy and Susan.

We personally work with each individual on our cleaning team to make sure they are properly trained. When our cleaning crew completes the job, your property is not only clean it is staged. The guests arrive to find a personalized welcome sign, accent lighting turned on, and soft music playing in the background. Attention to detail is very important to us.
