Kiawah Island Getaways has always been a leader in the field of clean vacation rentals and will continue to do so.

The Carmel Cottage at Windswept is a 1-bedroom villa that comfortably accommodates 2 adults. Bathed in tones of blue, appointed with beachy artwork and topped off with the latest technology, you'll find this villa’s bedroom, decks and living areas show off both personality and class.

Ocean Views From a King-Sized Bed

In the morning, enjoy the ocean view from the warmth of your plush custom-built king-sized bed. During the day, let your toes sink into the handwoven wool rugs that punctuate the property, and take advantage of the kitchen, complete with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.

In the evening, linger over the ocean views before settling into the finely-styled living room for a conversation about the day’s events or to watch your favorite movie on the large smart TV.

The master bedroom has a memory-foam topper on a plush mattress, Egyptian-cotton sheets, down-alternative pillows and a large smart TV.

Enjoy time on the deck outside the bedroom, which offers two Adirondacks completed with footstools and stunning landscape/ocean views. Don’t be surprised to find yourself spending hours here, book and glass of wine in hand.

And what is better than one deck with crazy gorgeous ocean views? Why TWO decks of course! The second deck is located off the living room and offers a bar-height table. This is the perfect spot for lunch between beach visits.

The spacious bathroom offers a double vanity, over-sized shower and separate toilet area.

Located just 30 minutes from historic downtown Charleston on Kiawah’s East Beach, this vacation property is ideally situated. The beach is unsurprisingly a favorite destination – and from here, it’s literally steps to the Atlantic Ocean. A cooler and beach towels are conveniently available in the Carmel Cottage. All you have to do is have a good time!

Beyond the beach, put some walking shoes on and check out the nearby shops and restaurants. Several miles of bike trail also wind throughout the island; rent a bike and get peddling!

"Well-appointed, immaculate, and ideally located"

by N. Hudson


The property was well-appointed, immaculate, and ideally located. My daughter and I were looking for a little R&R before she heads off to college, and Carmel fit the bill perfectly!

"Immaculate property with tasteful modern decor and easy beach access"

by K. Mathre


I recently had the pleasure of staying at a beautiful property through Kiawah Island Getaways, and I can't say enough positive things about my experience. From the moment I arrived, I was captivated by the stunning views of the ocean right from the doorstep.

The property itself was immaculate, with tasteful and modern decor that created a serene and inviting atmosphere. It was clear that great care had been taken to ensure every detail was perfect. The living areas were well-designed and comfortable.

One of the highlights of my stay was the easy beach access. Just a few steps away, we could sink our toes into the warm sand and enjoy the soothing sound of the waves. It was an absolute dream come true, and we cherished every moment spent lounging on the beach, basking in the sun, and taking refreshing swims.

The amenities provided by the property were top-notch. The kitchen was fully equipped with high-quality appliances, making it a pleasure to prepare meals and enjoy them while taking in the breathtaking ocean views. The bedroom was comfortable and cozy, ensuring a restful night's sleep after a day of beachside adventures.

What truly set this rental property apart was the exceptional customer service provided by the property management team. They were responsive, attentive, and went above and beyond to make sure my stay was nothing short of perfect. Their warmth and hospitality truly made me feel like a valued guest.

In conclusion, my experience at this beachfront property was absolutely delightful. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a tranquil and luxurious getaway. Whether you're looking to relax on the beach, explore nearby attractions, or simply unwind in a beautiful setting, this property offers it all. I can't wait to return and create more treasured memories in this beach paradise.

"The view beats any and every resort that you could possibly imagine"

by T. Roberts


We absolutely loved at our stay at The Carmel Cottage on Kiawah Island. It was by far and away the absolute best place we’ve ever stayed. The view that this place offers beats any and every resort that you could possibly imagine. Every wall every floor every appliance everything you could possibly touch or see was absolutely perfect, brand new, and utterly flawless. You could eat off the floor in that place! The attention to detail was second to none. Not only would we highly recommend staying here but honestly anywhere Kiawah Island Getaways is hosting we would be more than happy to stay! Our first trip to Kiawah and our first experience with Kiawah island getaways but most definitely not our last! We LOVED it! Words just can’t describe. Perfect Vacation…

"Kitchen is well appointed, with everything you could need"

by T. Becker


The Carmel cottage at Windswept was perfection. Clean and modern, easily the best villa we have stayed at Kiawah.
Views from both decks were great! Kitchen is well appointed, with everything you could need. Will hopefully stay here again.

"The beach was steps away and we can’t wait to go back!!"

by B. & C. Durkee


This property was the best surprise of our vacation. The property was beautiful, perfect size for two people and the sunrise views were amazing. The beach was steps away and we can’t wait to go back!!

"It is like staying at. 5-Star hotel that is actually a Villa"

by J. Olguin


This place is absolutely stunning! It is like staying at 5-Star hotel that is actually a villa. And the setting the villa is dropped in is perfect, facing the ocean with a short 50 yard walk to the water. We are already trying to figure out when we go back.

"Perfect beachfront location"

by J. Wren


Kiawah Island Getaways is always top-notch service and properties. This is the first time I've stayed at the Carmel Cottage - one of their newest properties. Tasteful and comfortable decor with thoughtful details throughout the apartment. Perfect beachfront location. Would definitely stay there again!

"Fabulous views from two decks"

by S. Wardrip


The venue exceeded expectations in all categories. Fabulous views from two decks, upscale finishes on interior and comfortable furnishings as well as every kitchen convenience.

"Perfect location, perfect accommodations, perfect everything"

by S. Williams


Everything was perfect in this property. It was the perfect location, perfect accommodations, perfect everything. We appreciated all of the little touches, from the notebook with information to the dishwasher and laundry pods, extra seasonings in the cabinet, any kitchen utensil you'll need to cook, etc... It was all perfect! We look forward to returning next year. The hostess was responsive and professional, too. You won't be disappointed at this rental.

"Incredible Ocean Views, King Bedroom with Two Oceanfront Decks"

by L. Knapp


We wanted to be off the grid for a couple days. We had everything needed to enjoy our stay. Restful and refreshing. Perfect.

"Completely exceeded our expectations!"

by T. Fortner


Beautifully updated villa with clean, coastal colors. Completely exceeded our expectations!

"Fantastic ocean views from two separate decks"

by P. Nobile


We wanted to stay on the beach and have great views of the ocean. The Carmel cottage exceeded our expectations, with fantastic views from two separate decks. The unit was brand new and beautifully furnished including luxurious bedding and high-end appliances. The hosts, Jeanette and Shawn were extremely efficient, helpful, and responsive. Already looking forward to our next stay.
