Property Details

Upscale, Southern Luxurious Villa

Master Bedroom: Deluxe King-Size Bed, Two Inflateable Aerobeds
1 Bathroom
Accommodates up to 2 Adults and 2 Young Children.
No smoking, pets or parties are permitted

Make yourself at home at The Shade at Seascape, the perfect place for a long weekend or holiday break. Ideally suited for a young family of 4, or just 2 adults, the Shade is a private-end unit in our Seascape complex with lots of space, plenty of privacy and ample sunlight that shines through the villa windows.

No detail has been left untouched in this intimate property, which melds the beach cottage vibe with luxurious touches. Granite countertops, hand-scraped maple wood floors and a double vanity in the bathroom with an Italian limestone walk-in shower exists side-by-side with cottage-style furnishings, saltwater-tinged fresh air breezes and a small bit of beach sand that snuck its way in on the soles of your feet.

Wooded Views from a Tranquil, Screened Porch

Spending quality time with your loved ones is simple in the Shade’s well-outfitted living spaces. Take advantage of stainless steel appliances, lots of counter space and all the utensils, pots and pans you might need in the kitchen to make your favorite meals – or experiment with a new recipe you’ve been meaning to try.

An open kitchen and living room make it easy to talk, laugh and make memories together as you while the hours away. (Of course, all the digital comforts of home – a CD player, iPod docking station, wireless high-speed internet and 2 flat-screen TV/DVD combos – can offer diversion as well.)

And don’t forget to step outside onto the screened-in back porch and relax, read or visit for a while on an Adirondack chair overlooking the wooded yard while a ceiling fan quietly spins above you.

One-Minute Walk to the Surf

Though the Shade offers everything you might need for a holiday accommodation, it wouldn’t be a beach vacation if you didn’t explore all the surrounding area has to offer. Don’t forget to grab the cooler and some beach towels as you head out the door.

A one-minute walk separates you from the ocean, where your family can enjoy the sunshine, splash in the water or exert some energy on body boards or rented bicycles. Beyond the beach find shops, restaurants, golf and tennis just a short walk as well.

At night, get comfortable in the villa’s master bedroom, complete with a pillow-top mattress and Egyptian cotton sheets, while the kids can embrace the summer sleepover atmosphere on an inflatable bed. We’re sure you’ll sleep well after a full and satisfying day on Kiawah Island.

Guest Reviews

Beautifully appointed! by K. Burchfield 28 Sep 2018
Our 3rd time staying at The Shade. We absolutely love Kiawah and Kiawah Island Getaways is part of the reason we keep coming back every year! Close to shopping, restaurants and beach. Couldn't ask for a better location and the view isn't too shabby either. Thank you Shawn and Jeanette for making our stay so great!

Lovely place

Beautifully Appointed by K. Fletcher 23 Sep 2017
Love, love, love staying at the Shade. Kiawah Island Getaways is now our go to for our vacations while staying on Kiawah. Convenient location to the beach, Freshfields for shopping and dining to the convenient drive to downtown Charleston. We've been the past couple of years and are already thinking about when to schedule our next trip and stay. Can't go wrong with Kiawah Island Getaways!
Perfect Beach Cottage for a Private Getaway by L. Dowling 03 Aug 2017
First of all, the service provided by Jeanette and her team is Ritz-Carlton level! This particular property has been redone to perfection. Great use of space for the small area. Finishes are top notch. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked, including 2 kinds of coffee makers! I actually chose to cook on my vacation because it was such great little space to enjoy a meal and watch a movie. The walk to beach is so convenient and easy. Would stay here again in a minute.
Excellent Beyond Words!! by J. Hill 02 Jul 2017
We reserved The Shade at Seascape for our son and daughter-in-law for their honeymoon. Our newlyweds shared that everything about their accommodations was excellent beyond words!!! I would also like to share that working with Jeanette and Shawn in planning this special time was a great experience!!! Our family was most blessed and we are most grateful!!!
Great Place to stay. Would stay there again without hesitation. by J. Coppinger 18 May 2017
I have stayed at many places but the attention to detail here is unmatched. Close walk to the beach and everything you need for a great stay. Even snapped a photo of the label on the sheets to purchase a set for our home they were so comfortable.
Home away from home! by K. Fletcher 24 Sep 2016
A perfect get away with all the comforts of home! We wanted to revisit the Charleston area because we have always loved it so much but wanted to add the beach element into our vacation this year. Once we arrived on Kiawah Island and walked in the Shade at Seascape we didn't leave. It's super convenient to restaurants, shopping and groceries @ Freshfields which we visited on a daily basis during our stay. The Shade is beautiful with it's décor and high end finishes. We will definitely be back!
Expectations Exceeded! by A. Salyer 11 Sep 2016
This was our first time at The Shade- we had stayed at The Vista twice, but decided to try something different. This villa was awesome! We so loved the screened in porch- we were a little concerned about privacy but that was no issue. We had coffee out there every morning. Every evening we had the pleasure of seeing a mother deer and her two babies walking down our path- so awesome. The villa it's self was the perfect size for my husband & I. We truly loved everything about it. The bed was extremely comfortable, loved the walk-in shower with the rain shower head. As always, stocked so well with everything and anything you could possibly need. It was also very close to the beach. We timed it one day- from the front door until we had our chairs in the sand was only 3 minutes! Jeanette & Shawn are always so easy to work with- very prompt in responding - the whole booking system is very easy. We always appreciate the extreme cleanliness of their properties and their attention to details. We highly recommend this property- we look forward to staying again.
Third Trip to Shade by J. Dixon 31 Jul 2016
This is our third trip to "The Shade" and our experience never disappoints. Shawn and Jeanette have put together a wonderful condo. It is close to the beach, spotless, well equipped, comfortable, even fresh flowers! Shawn and Jeanette know how to make your vacation experience very special.
Awesome Beach Condo by D. Wilson 03 Jul 2016
Awesome condo, very well decorated and maintained. The condo was very well equipped - best we've experienced - as close to home as could be imagined. Short walk the beach. Couldn't have stayed at a better place.
From Boston by N. Roche 17 Apr 2016
This cottage was perfect in every way- every detail thought of on the inside, perfect location and hosts could not have been more thoughtful. WHEN we return Kiawah (!), I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
Kiawah is amazing! We loved our stay in the . by M. Franco 26 Mar 2016
Kiawah is amazing! We loved our stay in the Shade Villa. The screened porch was a excellent place to sit and listen to nature and also enjoyed your many books. The kitchen was a dream! We shared the most wonderful meals
The Shade at Seascape by L. Roach 26 Mar 2016
The Shade at Seascape was perfect!! Not a single detail was left out. Close to the beach, and in immaculate condition. We're looking forward to returning again soon!!
Beautiful and well located cottage by J. Fallon 15 Mar 2016
The "Shade" is a very well appointed and well located condo/cottage just a very short stroll to the beach. The appointments in the cottage are high end, from the refrigerator to the stove to the dish washer to the counters in the kitchen and bathroom to the shower to the NEST thermostat, and are excellent. The cottage is very comfortable and well organized. We enjoyed sitting on the small screened-in-porch at all times of the day. The cottage comes well equipped with paper towels, soap for showers and the dishwasher and the clothes washer and just about anything one can think of.

With regard to activities and restaurants, the beach is great for walking, running and riding bikes and golf at the Ocean Course is great (but expensive) and we heard that the other courses on Kiawah are very nice too. We found the Fresh Fields shopping center, within 5 minutes by car, and all of the restaurants, the grocery store and the few other stores were quite nice.

We highly recommend staying at the Shade.
Wonderful place to stay and have fun at Kiawah. by J. Penna 06 Sep 2015
Wonderful place to stay and have fun at Kiawah. Everything was thought of and you could tell they enjoyed what they do by the personal touches. The decor was beautiful and comfortable. We will definitely stay there again. Thank you for all you did to make our stay special.
Our Stay at the Shade by C Adkins 14 Jun 2015
Our Stay at the Shade
My husband and I celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary and 9 wonderful days at "The Shade" during one of the hottest weeks in SC. We were warmly greeted with a welcome sign, soft music, video and a beautiful vase of fresh flowers on the table. We felt "at home" the whole time we were there and we hated to leave. The screened in porch (with ceiling fan) was extremely enjoyable especially in the morning and evening while we watched the squirrels, egret and birds playing. Shawn and Jeanette thought of everything to make our stay relaxing, cozy and enjoyable. The villa was immaculate and their attention to details was first class. I highly recommend their services for your vacation getaway. As the saying goes, "I'll be back".
Second time in this rental-loved living both in the woods and one-minute walk to beach. by J. Andreaco 26 Oct 2014
Second time in this rental-loved living both in the woods and one-minute walk to beach. The unit is so well-equipped- pretty much only needed to shop for food! We love the ambience of the condo-everything is as depicted in the website photos from Kiawahislandgetaways! We're renting from them again during the holidays.
My wife and I spent a week at "The Shade" and we could not have been happier. by J. Allen 31 Aug 2014
My wife and I spent a week at "The Shade" and we could not have been happier. The villa was extremely comfortable, clean and well-appointed. The owners were very attentive to our needs. If you are looking for a relaxing, worry-free vacation, this is the place.
My wife and I stayed at 'The Shade' for our honeymoon and we couldn't have been happier. by C. Fimmen 13 Jul 2014
My wife and I stayed at 'The Shade' for our honeymoon and we couldn't have been happier. Everything was thought of and taken care of for us - beach bag, towels, chairs, bikes, etc.. We also really appreciated the book of restaurants and attractions in Kiawah and Charleston that was left for us. We tried out many of the suggested options there and were not disappointed. Personal favorite part about 'The Shade' - the screened in area. We sat out there every morning with our coffee and watched the squirrels and birds before we went to the beach - complete serenity. We'll be back to Kiawah, and when we go, we know we have a cozy place, close to the beach to stay!
We felt as if we were staying at a friend's condo, not a rental! by J. Andreaco 06 Jul 2014
We felt as if we were staying at a friend's condo, not a rental! The Shade was perfect for a couple,It was very well-equipped and tastefully decorated. We felt as though we were at a friend's home-very unlike a typical beach rental! We absolutely loved sitting on the screened porch. The unit had the best of both worlds- wooded view and one minute walk to the beach path! In 30 years of renting beach condos, I was really surprised to find workable knives, can openers, etc.! It was not an issue with us, but the pool was a bit of a walk from the unit.
The "Shade" was perfect for our little vacation. by K. Bunch 16 Apr 2014
The "Shade" was perfect for our little vacation. The décor is so tastefully done, and you can tell that every detail had thorough attention. I loved when we walked in for the first time, and the television with music was playing. Also, whatever 'smell' is in the condo is so clean. I asked the owners and found out it is Mr. Clean with Febreze in the Vanilla/Lavender Scent.

The location was perfect for us. Our goal was to tour the surrounding Charleston area, and we did this everyday using our rental car. We particularly liked returning each night to "The Shade" and relaxing in our own little apartment. We did not want to eat-out for every meal and the accommodations made that very easy and doable.

If/when we return to Kiawah we will not hesitate to use Kiawah Island Getaways again for a rental.
What a perfect get-a-way. by V. John 22 Feb 2014
What a perfect get-a-way. The condo is beautiful and includes everything you could want. The bed was so comfortable, we had no trouble sleeping. Everything was top quality, well maintained and very clean. The location was perfect. The Freshwater Market Shops were a short bike ride away. They included a huge supermarket, lovely shops, restaurants and coffee shops. The beach was a short walk from the condo. We cannot wait to go back next spring.
Great accomodations, Great Beach, Great Service - I stayed at "Shade" at Shipwatch through Kiawah Island Getaways from Sept 23-27/2013. by J. Mendes 24 Sep 2013
Great accomodations, Great Beach, Great Service - I stayed at "Shade" at Shipwatch through Kiawah Island Getaways from Sept 23-27/2013. It was very clean, well appointed, had a lovely screened in porch, 60 seconds from the beach, and was well-laid out. I recommend it without reservation.
