Our 2-bedroom villa, the Mariah is just one floor down in the same building.

The Penthouse at Windswept offers 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a generous floor plan and easy access to the beach and surrounding attractions.

Whether you choose to spend the majority of your time relaxing inside with a good book or sinking your toes into the sand just steps from your front door, you’ll find the best of both worlds on the property’s balcony, which offers incredible 180-degree sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Custom, Designer Interiors Almost As Stunning as the View

Though the view speaks for itself, the Penthouse’s interior is also worthy of a look, with its custom drapery, chic color palette, original oil paintings, designer furniture, granite countertops and hardwood flooring throughout.

Inside, you’ll likely spend most of your time in the Penthouse’s communal spaces. With floor-to-ceiling windows, the rooms are bathed in sunshine for many hours of the day. Settle in to the high-tech living room, furnished with a 60-inch smart television, soundbar, BluRay player, iPod docking station and CD player.

The dining room and kitchen are easily accessible and appointed with everything you might need to whip up a favorite family meal, or use this opportunity to experiment with a recipe you’ve been meaning to try.

At night, settle down in one of the villa’s cozy and beautifully decorated bedrooms. On the top floor, enjoy the superb ocean views from a king-sized bed, which is outfitted with a pillow-top mattress and the finest linens. A 32-inch flat panel television and large bathroom with a double vanity and deluxe tile shower round out the master suite.

Down the hallway, guests in the second master bedroom are also treated to exceptional views and an even larger bathroom with a double vanity, deluxe tile shower and oversized garden tub. Downstairs, the third bedroom features 2 twin beds and an adjacent bathroom.

Steps from the Beach

When you finally tear yourself away from your cozy abode, the surf and sand are mere steps away. Also within a short walking distance, find the Night Heron Park, local shopping and lots of restaurants. For a short day trip, head to historic downtown Charleston.

The Penthouse at Windswept is one of our most popular villas. If you need additional booking options, check out the 4-bedroom Breeze at Seascape, which we’re sure you will love.

Guest Reviews

A spectacular beachfront property designed with care and comfort in mind. My family loved our stay. by E. Feller 07 Dec 2018
"One of the best VRBO experiences ever - truly a wonderful place to spend a vacation."
Great Condo! by K. Davis 02 Jun 2017
"We loved it and would stay there again."

Our Private Retreat by P. Cronin 06 Feb 2017
"We have been guests of Shawn and Jeanette for a number of years, 5 visits so far ...but many more expected! The Penthouse is not what it is advertised to be...IT IS SIMPLY MORE SPECTACULAR! The place has ALWAYS been immaculate and we feel as if we have "arrived back home" to the MOST relaxing spot in all of Kiawah. The furnishings are incredible and "little touches" of things new happen all the time. The view from the master bedroom is permanently fixed as my screen saver, and brings back so many great memories. We selfishly use the entire unit for is our private retreat. The only thing I would change is the number of times we visit in a year! Words are not powerful enough to describe the benefit you just have to try it out yourself."
A great property, very well maintained by T. Wilkes 11 Nov 2016
"Great location, on the water. Very well maintained, very helpful owners. Everything is first class, you will love it."
Beautiful Property! by R. Wise 01 Oct 2016
"A beautiful property that I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to simply relax I don't think you could beat this place. Don't book during hurricane season though as our stay was limited to 3 days out of the 7 booked due to Hurricane Matthew. Who knew the first hurricane in over 10 years would hit the week we booked?!?

Location was incredible, the property was beautifully maintained and the beds were amazingly comfortable!

The owners were extremely responsive to each and every inquiry and kept us fully informed throughout the process. Again, I highly recommend this property!"
Absolutely Fantastic by J. Hogan 30 Jul 2016
"Our beach experience here was one of the best ever. We have been coming to the island for over 30 years and this is by far the cleanest and best appointed rental we have had. Tissue, cleaning products, beach chairs, and more. . .everything was there for our convenience. The view from the living room as well as the master bedroom was romantic, restful, and soul healing. We will be renting this penthouse again if possible. "
The rooms were great, the view was spectacular! by A. Ueltschi 06 Oct 2015
"The orientation of the island made for a very cool sunrise/sunset at either end of the beach. Access to the ocean was easy and the beach was nearly all ours. The condo itself was immaculate and very comfortable. Access and parking was as easy as you're going to get on the island."
Absolutely Amazing by J. Krug 06 Jun 2015
"Absolutely Amazing
I actually hesitate to review this rental because I want to keep the secret all to ourselves! We traveled with our three young children and it was the first time "Mommy" could relax on a vacation because everything was so clean, well stocked, convenient and accessible. The owners were more than accommodating and everything within the rental was explained clearly. The location to the beach and other amenities was exceptional. I cannot imagine ever being more satisfied with a vacation rental. Well done!!"
We couldn't have asked for a more inviting place. by B. Parkerson 14 Jul 2014
"We couldn't have asked for a more inviting place. As soon as we walked in the Penthouse it felt like home. There were fresh flowers, music, beautiful view of the ocean and the cleanliness was excellent. We rented this location last year and this year did not disappoint! We have stayed on a few properties on Kiawah, but we will keep coming back to this villa. This is the place to stay. The pictures of the property were exactly as shown. The master bedroom view is breathtaking and peaceful. We rented bikes for the first time on our vacation and we can't believe we didn't do it sooner. We had a wonderful time taking bike rides every morning and then went to the beach. We love this place! 🙂 "
We loved our stay at the The Penthouse. by D. Yarlborough 17 Jan 2014
"We loved our stay at the The Penthouse. It is well outfitted throughout. The view is wondrous. The furnishings are simple, yet beautiful giving a warm, inviting ambiance not to be forgotten.....and yet you know it has been professionally done. You feel comfortable and at home almost instantly. We have lived in the Southeast for years always looking for that perfect beach. We believe we have found it at Kiawah, specifically at the Windswept complex. It brings back fond memories of our favorite beach on Monterey Bay on the California coast. The owners were always available to answer questions and very responsive. The internet description was accurate and the photos were good but the "beach view" is far more spectacular than any camera could capture. "
Overall great experience. by S. Buckner 21 Nov 2013
"Overall great experience. The Penthouse was beautiful with lots of special touches that made our stay great. Great ocean views from multiple places throughout the condo. I especially loved the views from the master bedroom. Top quality technology in multiple rooms. The kitchen had everything we needed. The condo was in a great location (easy bike rides to the Sanctuary and grocery)."
Beautifully decorated, filled with amenities, clean and very well maintained. by B. Ross 13 Oct 2013
"Beautifully decorated, filled with amenities, clean and very well maintained. Personal touches throughout property. Would recommend the Penthouse to anyone wanting a great property in Kiawah. Excellent linens--not your normal beach towels and sheets!!! We saw beautiful sunrises in the morning and sunsets in the evening from our balcony and were lucky to have seen two deer munching on greenery in the berm between the sand and the unit."
This villa was exactly as advertised, superlative in every way. by M. Balow 13 Oct 2013
"This villa was exactly as advertised, superlative in every way. The furnishings and décor were lovely; I had to stop myself from walking off with one of the glass pieces on display on the built-in shelves. We were looking for a villa with two master bedrooms, and this villa was just right. Neither couple felt slighted in any way. The linens and towels were wonderful, not what you normally get in a rental. Likewise the kitchen appliances and supplies. We normally bring many basic supplies with us, but we did not need any of them during our stay at The Penthouse . We did eat in five nights, and found we had everything we needed for cooking and serving our meals. The villa was very clean and well-maintained. We especially appreciated little notes owners left in various places throughout the villa that told you where to find things, or how to use things. Kiawah Island Getaways provided lots of detailed instructions and recommendations for places to visit and to eat. We need to come back again to enjoy all the area has to offer. The rental process was simple, and it was nice dealing with locals who know the area well. We definitely would recommend The Penthouse to family and friends, and we hope to return ourselves."
We had a wonderful time in the Penthouse Villa at Windswept! by K. Prislipsky 13 Jul 2013
"We had a wonderful time in the Penthouse Villa at Windswept! We have rented several times on Kiawah and this by far was the cleanest villa. The pictures representing the property are excellent. When we walked in, it was as if we had already been there. It felt as if we were in a 5 star hotel. Everything was provided from the supplies in the kitchen to the plush towels in the bathrooms. The walk to the beach is short and easy for young children. The owners have thought of everything! Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation! We will certainly be back next year!!! :)"
We spent a wonderful week in the Penthouse at Windswept Villa....absolutely gorgeous view, easy access to beach, and beautiful (as well as comfortable) villa. by L. Moulder 25 May 2013
"We spent a wonderful week in the Penthouse at Windswept Villa....absolutely gorgeous view, easy access to beach, and beautiful (as well as comfortable) villa. We like to cook, and found the kitchen to be well equipped for serious cooking! The owners keep the villa in great shape - very clean...we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return again."
