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

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 – wireless high-speed internet and 2 large smart Samsung TVs – 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.

2-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.

The 2-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.

"Comfortable Cottage Meets Luxury - 2 Minute Walk to Beach!"

by S. Kessel


I hesitate to give the property 5 stars, because I don't want anyone to stay there but us! We live within 90 min of Kiawha and have been going there for years. This condo is the best for two people we have stayed in. The welcome book is terrific, especially for first timers. The layout for this size typical condo of Kiawha was unique and perfect. Many tasteful upgrades had been made. This place had EVERY possible item of use one could ask to be provided. It was very clean and in a great location. The distance to the beach was 2 min 27.45 sec - with a gait length of 20.5 inches and no wind factor in play 🙂

"We were very pleased with how clean, comfortable, and well equipped the place was"

by L. Caldon


Stayed with my daughter on her pre wedding night while she stayed on with her hubby on their wedding night. It was the ideal getaway for them. And we were very pleased with how clean, comfortable, and well equipped the place was. Everything was spot on and the place was very cozy and welcoming. The bed was also super comfortable and soft. We'll definitely be back!

"Comfortable King bed, two sink bathroom, giant rainfall shower, well supplied kitchen"

by J. Wright


My wife and I spent 6 days on Kiawah Island at an apartment rented through Kiawah Island Getaways - the Shade at Seascape. It's a one bedroom a very short walk from the ocean. The accommodations were top notch: comfortable King bed, two sink bathroom, giant rainfall shower, well supplied kitchen, a welcoming flower arrangement. In addition, shampoo and body wash were in ample supply, the modern washer and dryer came with detergent as did the Bosch dishwasher. Probably the most remarkable example of the service our hosts provide occurred when I notified them that the Keurig coffee maker wasn't working. A replacement was delivered so fast that I could still enjoy my morning cups! This is a wonderful place for a couple to stay.

"I was amazed at how logistically simple the check-in and check-out process was"

by D. Novak


Our stay at Kiawah Island was a magical experience for my family and me. The service we received was top-notch. I was amazed at how logistically simple the check-in and check-out process was. This villa was perfect for me and my family. The location was a few steps away from the beach. We look forward to returning next year.

"The condo is so close to the beach!"

by M. Crowell


Hosts Shawn and Jeanette were so lovely to communicate with.Their home was perfectly appointed and was a lovely two week stay. I wanted for nothing and would have stayed longer had my schedule permitted. The condo is perfect for 1 person or a couple and is so close to the beach. I can't wait to return to one of their properties again!

"We love the fact that the beach was a convenient two minute walk from our door"

by R. Beatty


We were very happy with the Shade at Seascape Villa. We spent a wonderful week in Kiawah and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. The villa was very clean and neatly organized and decorated. All the necessary utensils and other kitchen items were provided for all the meals we cooked during our stay. Shawn and Jeanette were friendly and helpful with many details. We enjoyed the bike rides on the beach. We love the fact that the beach was a convenient two minute walk from our door. We plan to return with friends in the future!

"The kitchen was full of quality appliances both large and small"

by K. Zuar


This past week, my husband and I had the pleasure of staying at The Shade at Seascape on Kiawah Island. We had to go to the Charleston area for business but were not particularly looking forward to the trip due to our apprehension with Covid 19. Unfortunately we could not put the trip off. From the moment we made our booking through Kiawah Island Getaways, we were put at ease. The Shade, although compact in size, was newly updated with all the amenities we desired. This was important for many reasons but mostly because we knew we would be spending a good deal of our time there cooking and relaxing. Maybe ten minutes after our booking, we received a call from Shawn, the managing agent (and I believe part owner along with with his wife Jeanette) at Kiawah Island Getaways, I explained my apprehension, and he assured me their staff followed strict protocols regarding cleaning and disinfecting of all contact surfaces. True to his word, when we arrived, the place was spotless and smelled as though it had been thoroughly scrubbed! Usually with a rental, you need to run immediately to the store for the basic necessities: toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher and laundry soap, etc, At the Shade, these items were stocked!! The dishwasher and washing machine were spotless. The kitchen was full of quality appliances both large and small. The villa was very tastefully decorated, and a beautiful arrangement of fresh flowers greeted us along with soothing music. A binder listed recommended activities, restaurants and places to shop. Honestly, there really was not a thing we lacked. For relaxation, Kiawah’s breathtaking beaches were less than a 2-3 minute stroll. And if you felt too lazy to go to the beach, the villa had a cozy screened in porch with Adirondack chairs and a ceiling fan for those hot August days!! As you might guess, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be returning!

"Tranquil Screened-In Porch"

by M. Skinner


We loved our long weekend in this beautiful home. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach and the well-appointed kitchen that offered the ability to cook at home. Our favorite spot was the tranquil screened-in porch, which allowed us to hear the ocean, feel the breeze, and spend time together off the beach. We hope to be back soon!

"Tastefully Decorated and Very Clean"

by B. Crume


Shawn and Jeanette are very quick to respond to inquiries and have beautiful rental properties. We loved staying at The Shade and we had an opportunity to check out their other properties to plan for our next visit. Each one is tastefully decorated and very clean thanks to Danielle and her staff. They have each one stocked with just about everything you need including puzzles, games, spices, cookware, cleaning supplies, paper goods, cooler, soft absorbent bath towels and fabulously comfortable beds. They accommodated us at the last moment when our travel plans changed and we needed a place to stay and we really wanted to be on Kiawah. They even set up our bicycle rentals. They provide all of the information that you need for a smooth and memorable vacation. Thanks again for the beautiful fresh flowers that welcomed us and warmed our hearts!

"We would book here again in a heartbeat!!"

by S. Carter


EVERY aspect of this rental exceeded our expectations from the communication before arrival to the comfortable bed and adorable cottage feel. It was all superb. We loved all the restaurant and activity suggestions. Attention to detail here cannot be stressed enough. We would book here again in a heartbeat.
