The Escape at Windswept

Ocean views anchor both the living room and master bedroom. Or slide open the balcony door for a more immersive ocean-view experience. Take in the tranquil landscape as the sun rises over the open water, listen to the steady sound of waves in the distance, and indulge in the refreshing sea breeze.

With 1 bedroom and 2 bathrooms, the Escape at Windswept can comfortably accommodate a couple or young family searching for the perfect beach vacation. Sleep in the master bedroom, which features majestic natural views from the comfort of a king-sized bed.

Outfitted with pillow-top mattresses, memory-foam toppers, Egyptian-cotton sheets and down-alternative pillows, it’s the ideal place to enjoy a hot cup of coffee on a lazy morning or catch up on the latest news, which you can watch on the suite’s 27-inch flat-panel television.

Easy and Comfortable Accommodations

When you’re finally ready to start your day, feel free to take your time in the master bathroom, complete with a large glass walk-in shower.

Let the kids get cozy in the living room, which has a sleeper sofa, media center with a 32-inch television, DVD player and small library of DVDs and books. (And, of course, like any modern home, you have full access to wireless internet during your stay.)

In addition to serving as extra sleeping space, families often pass time in the living room, making plans for a day on the beach or kicking back in the evening after spending all afternoon in the sun.

An accessible floor plan in this part of the villa makes it easy to move from one room to the other as you cook a meal in the fully furnished, elegant kitchen appointed with stainless steel appliances or play board games in the dining room as the sun starts to set. And, to make your vacation that much easier, the on-site washer and dryer are located just off the kitchen.

A One-Minute Walk to the Beach

Head out the door to see what the neighborhood has in store. Only a one-minute walk away you’ll find 10 miles of pristine beach. Also within walking distance are shopping opportunities, restaurants and the Night Heron Park. For a longer excursion, hop in your car and head to historic downtown Charleston, only a 30-minute drive away.

As idyllic as The Escape at Windswept is, if you feel you need more room for your vacation, check out the 3-bedroom Penthouse and 2-bedroom Mariah, both villas located in the Windswept complex.

Guest Reviews

One of the Nicest Villas by C. Renee 14 Oct 2018
My parents recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at "the Escape at Windswept," a rental property offered by Kiawah Island Getaways. We all have been vacationing at Kiawah for several years. They said this unit was one of the nicest villas in which they have stayed. It was very, very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with all the cooking necessities. It was a great villa and area where they could relax. They hope to return in the spring.
First Rate by E. Miller 28 Jul 2018
This lovely condo had everything we required as well as a stunning view from bed and an amazing beach. We will be back.
Perfect Getaway by C. Pennington 26 May 2018
"Kiawah Island Getaways went above and beyond. From fresh flowers on the table to beach towels in the closet! The condo was right on the water with incredible views, clean and updated amenities. We had a great time and will definitely be booking with Kiawah Island Getaways in the future."
Wonderful long weekend by M. Rissmiller 29 Mar 2018
"My husband, baby, and I spent a long weekend at the Escape. It was perfect and really easy. The condo was well kept and well equipped. The location (steps from the beach and walking/biking trails) was perfect. We couldn’t be happier with our visit."
amazing property, right on the beach by A. Dinescu 19 Aug 2017
"We recently stayed at the Windswept complex on Kiawah and we had an amazing vacation. The unit was exactly as described on the website, not only clean but well decorated, all appliances working, amazing ocean view from the bedroom, quiet. This unit is really perfectly located: directly on the beach and in walking distance from the Sanctuary, the island essential place for breakfast and lunch, and anything food. In the morning you are 7 minute beach walk from your coffee at Sanctuary market.
The beach is awesome and you can actually ride the bike on the beach in the sunset.
The property managers were very attentive and provided a lot of information ( all accurate and helpful) prior to arrival and during our stay.
We rented bikes, umbrella and beach chairs which were a great addition to our time on the beach but, actually, that would be the only suggestion, that some of the beach chairs would need an update.
Overall we fell in love with Kiawah and part of the was the great unit that we had."
Very happy, will lease again! by C. Rager 22 Jul 2017
"My family was very pleased with the The Escape at Windswept at Kiawah Island Getaways. It was very clean, the amenities worked, and the location was near the beach. We have been vacationing at Kiawah since 2011, and stayed at various properties. Kiawah Island Getaways is the first company we plan to use again. Keep up the good work."
Gorgeous, clean with all the essentials needed for a great vacation at the beach!!! by D. Smith 01 Jul 2017
"We come to Kiawah every year but this is the first time staying at this particular property site and it was amazing. The owners have thought of everything!! Pack a bathsuit, sunscreen and flip flops and you're ready!!! Loved it!!! Hope to be back soon!!!"
Stunning and Serene by J Griffith 30 May 2017
"My husband and I stayed at the Windswept Unit recently. I can't say enough how perfect this condo was! This was our first trip to Kiawah and I'm so happy we decided to stay here. The decor inside the condo was absolutely stunning and serene. The views of the ocean throughout the condo were breathtaking. The unit came equipped with everything you could need including nice little touches like frozen mugs and fresh flowers. The owners were more than accommodating from the minute we decided to book the unit. Our next trip back to the Island we will be re-booking here for sure!"
The Escape was truly an Escape! by S. Hall 26 May 2017
"The property was better than advertised. We have rented many properties at Kiawah and other destinations that advertise as top quality only to typically be disappointed by some aspect of the villa or home. Not this time, the Escape at Windswept was everything the owners advertised. We were particularly impressed with the cleanliness of the unit, the decor, and the kitchen truly did have a more than adequate supply of pots and pans, utensils, and other items we needed. We would certainly recommend this unit if you want a comfortable well appointed one bedroom with a great view. We will definitely use Kiawah Island Getaway properties for our future Kiawah vacations."
Beautiful!! by S. Garber 13 Apr 2017
"This condo is Beautiful! Very well maintained, stocked and clean. Extremely comfortable. Steps from the beach. Owners are very accommodating and helpful! "
Windswept 4322 was super. by M. Cody 13 Aug 2016
"4322 Windswept has a wonderful view, fine furnishings and is well appointed. Very nice place to stay on Kiawah Island."
Never Wanted To Leave! by L. Bryant 16 Jul 2016
"My husband and I wanted a relaxing romantic beach vacation so we decided to go back for a second time to the Escape at Windswept on Kiawah Island. From the minute we entered the condo, complete serenity washed over both of us. We were greeted by an immaculate condo with fresh flowers sitting in a vase on the kitchen counter and soft music playing in the background. The condo is a neutral tone with light blue accents throughout making it feel large and open. The views of the ocean easily obtained simply stepping out onto the deck and walking into the bedroom. The bed linens were excellent: invitingly fluffy, soft, and tons of pillows. Towels were plentiful including two large beach towels. An empty beach tote and small cooler ready for our use was in the closet. Two frozen mugs were in the freezer. The kitchen was well stocked including olive oil, seasonings, and garbage bags. We enjoyed regular bike rides, the pristine beach, and nature watching! We saw deer, dolphins, pelicans, osprey, an alligator, and my favorite; a baby loggerhead turtle! We had one very rainy day where we stayed mostly inside and yet still very content. I mostly enjoyed waking to the view of the ocean from the bed. When the week was over, both my husband and I wanted to stay so much that we emailed Jeanette and Shawn if we could rent the condo for one more night. They quickly got back to us and though it was already rented, they were able to provide us one more night at another location very close by: The Beach Cottage at Mariners Watch. They made the move very easy having the new place ready by 10:00am. The Beach Cottage at Mariners Watch had a totally different feel (cottage style décor which was busting with color: pinks, blues, and greens) but with the same wonderful inviting detail: great bed linens, stocked kitchen, cooler, tote, and frozen mugs etc. The entire wall in the kitchen/living room area is a sliding glass door that leads to a screened-in-porch surrounded by beautiful green trees and a view of a bike path and small pound. The best part was that it was only 80 steps from the front door to the beach boardwalk! In all we loved our beach vacation and truly appreciate Jeanette and Shawn’s great attention to detail in making both rental locations superb! "
Wonderful Condo and Beach! by C. Infield 11 Jun 2016
"The condo was wonderful. Very clean and comfortable. We appreciated how well stocked it was: laundry detergent, soap, toilet paper, beach towels, cooler as this all made our stay very convenient. We enjoyed the island and how much it had grown in the last 10 years that we had been there. The bike paths were incredible and we enjoyed seeing all the wildlife that Kiawah had. Thank you for a memorable vacation! We would easily stay in this condo again, or possibly a larger one if we bring our family along!"
Family Vacation by S. Ammons 28 May 2016
"This was my 4 year old sons first encounter with the beach. Kiawah island is truly a breathtaking place. The villa was perfect. We had a tropical storm blow through on our first night, so the games provided in the villa were a perfect touch on the rainy night. "
Perfect in Every Way! by C. Kegel 11 May 2016
"My wife and I arrived to a personal greeting on the door of this gorgeous villa. Walking inside, we heard soft music, saw fresh flowers on the table and a fresh smell greeted us. The view was breathtaking from the villa. We could see the ocean and beach from our bedroom, which was my wife's favorite place to watch the waves and just relax. I enjoyed the deck where I could sit back and enjoy a glass of wine while watching the surf breaking on the shore and the deer enjoying snacks right below our villa in the dunes. And to top it off, the weather was amazing.....sunny and highs in the mid-80's in mid-May. It was a very short walk to the wide, clean Kiawah beach. We have been coming to Kiawah for over 30 years now, and there isn't a better place to vacation for us than Kiawah anwhere in the world. Shawn and Jeanette made it that much more enjoyable with this outstanding villa, the best one we have been in on the island. Everything was impeccable and extremely clean. Every detail was attended to and it was very well appointed. My wife and I usually vacation here with our family and rent a house in Vanderhorst. But for just the 2 of us on a romantic vacation, The Escape is impossible to beat. We'll definitely be back soon. We highly recommend renting from Shawn and Jeanette and Kiawah Island Getaways."

Great Kiawah Island Villa! by D. Rice 23 Apr 2016
"The villa was all it was advertised to be and more! The villa itself is very nice and the view, wow, it was fantastic! We spent most ever morning and afternoon sitting on the deck enjoying the view. The beach at Kiawah is gorgeous! Shawn and Jeanette were great to work with during our planning and they provided a ton on information for us about the island, restaurants, and surrounding areas. We would certainly look to rent this villa again upon an return trip!! "
Great Place to Stay! by T. Powers 20 Jun 2015
"Great Place to Stay!
The villa was very clean, comfortable, and had all the amenities we needed. Before our arrival we received all the necessary information (gate pass; entrance code; items already in the villa that we didn't need to pack; etc). Once we arrived there was a big binder of add'l info and places to eat & visit"
This villa is excellent. by J. Donough 05 Nov 2014
"This villa is excellent. Beautiful view from the Master bedroom of the sunrise at Kiawah over the beach. You will not be disappointed. Shawn and Jeanette are excellent to work with and go to the extra effort to make your stay the best!"
Wonderful Oceanfront Villa & Exceptional Service - Our family has rented at this location many times and it is always fantastic. by J. Vineyard 14 Sep 2014
"Wonderful Oceanfront Villa & Exceptional Service - Our family has rented at this location many times and it is always fantastic. The view is wonderful, the location is perfect, and the Villa is perfect for a couple!! The amenities are wonderful and they always ensure you have things you would be likely to forget!! "
Such a relaxing and awesome location...the condo is very well appointed, modern, clean and right on the beach...didn't feel the need to go out every night in search of a new restaurant as the grocery store at Freshfields Village provides you with everything you need and the condo is a home away from home. by M. Protheroe 31 May 2014
"Such a relaxing and awesome location...the condo is very well appointed, modern, clean and right on the beach...didn't feel the need to go out every night in search of a new restaurant as the grocery store at Freshfields Village provides you with everything you need and the condo is a home away from home. Our three year old loved it...beautiful clean, safe beach that we explored throughout the day and chased crabs at night...he had a blast! If you are looking to escape the head long rush of the corporate day to day, this is the place...Shawn and Jeanette have got it just right...they think of everything, give you a steer in the right direction, should you need it, but leave you be otherwise...perfect."
The Escape villa is by far one of the best villas on Kiawah Island. by C. Carrington 04 May 2014
"The Escape villa is by far one of the best villas on Kiawah Island. Everything is so well thought out and the owners really spared no expense in regards to the interior details down to the towels and sheets. You simply can not get any better than this, and the best part is how easy it is to work with the management company on a reservation or equipment rentals!"
We enjoyed such a fantastic 2 weeks on Kiawah!! by L. DeVore 15 Feb 2014
"We enjoyed such a fantastic 2 weeks on Kiawah!! The weather was not always super terrific, but the accommodations of 'The Escape' and all of the extra amenities that Shawn and Jeanette provide made for a very comfortable, relaxing vacation!! The 'heavenly bed' is just that!! Your body just molds into it!! The beach at Kiawah is super fantastic!! Plenty of hard sand walking space even at high tide!! The Market Place operated by Harris Teeter is a great place to get anything you want for dinners in!! If you are a biker, the bike paths are superb-- or just a walker/jogger plenty of areas for that. We are not golfers but have heard the courses are excellent!! Shawn and Jeanette from Kiawah Getaways are very friendly and accommodating and they maintain their units beautifully!! We had a wonderful 2 weeks with some fun trips to Charleston (an easy 30 minutes away) included!! Highly recommend all!!"
The Escape was the perfect condo for our recent stay on Kiawah Island! by M. Johnson 23 Jul 2013
"The Escape was the perfect condo for our recent stay on Kiawah Island! We recently took our 8 month old and found the condo to be perfectly equipped for our trip. No detail has been forgotten in this meticulous condo, every comfort we needed was at our fingertips!!! Seconds from the beach - amazing view of the ocean from both the bedroom & living room. Perfection - we highly recommend this condo (and we are hard to please travelers)."
My husband and I just spent a wonderful week in Kiawah at this beautiful villa. by T. Higgins 26 Apr 2013
"My husband and I just spent a wonderful week in Kiawah at this beautiful villa. We've been going to Kiawah for over 20 years and this is one of the nicest and easiest rentals we've ever experienced. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary so it was perfect for just the two of us. Beautfully decorated, all the neccessities (2 baths certainly didn't hurt) totally spotless and so close to the beach with a view of the ocean from the living room and master bedroom. What more could one want? Not sure when we'll get back to Kiawah, just the two of us, but when we're able to.... we'll definitely check out staying at this villa again!!"
The location of the Escape was perfect for our stay on Kiawah Island. by D. Kelsey 27 Mar 2013
"The location of the Escape was perfect for our stay on Kiawah Island. We could see the surf from our window and hear and see it from our balcony/porch, just as the photos revealed. The Escape was lighted, fragrant, spotlessly clean, and welcoming when we arrived at dusk. When booking, I spoke with Shawn who answered all my questions completely. My sister and I needed a break from sorting, cleaning, and probate appointments because our Mother passed away in January and our Daddy died in February. We were just overwhelmed with fatigue and grief, so the Escape was perfect for us. Thank you so very much for this wonderful beach experience. It was quiet, peaceful and refreshing for us. We would definitely recommend Chez Fish for fresh Seafood to eat in or take out. In Charleston we especially liked the southern seafood at Charleston Crab House. Shopping at the Tanger Outlet east of Charleston was therapeutic! Thank you Jeanette and Shawn for the Escape! We will definitely come again and recommend you to our friends and relatives!"
