About Property Managers, Shawn and Jeanette Lawson (Kiawah Island Getaways):
Shawn's family discovered Kiawah in 1978 and returned year after year for two-week vacations. In 1985 we drove our VW Bug convertible to Kiawah and Shawn introduced me to Kiawah. I remember stepping over the dune boardwalk out in front of the Kiawah Island Inn and seeing Kiawah's wide, sandy beach for the first time - it was so brilliant it practically danced before my eyes. It was during this vacation that the two of us decided to set our sights on moving to this beautiful and fascinating place permanently.
In 1988 our dreams came true and our U-Haul rattled across the Kiawah Island bridge (at that time it was nothing more than a wood-planked bridge). For the next four years we rented a 1-bedroom villa, 4251 Mariner's Watch. Shawn was so thrilled to be living on the island that he applied for the personalized South Carolina license plate 'KIAWAH' (which we still have today).
In 1992, we built our first home on the island at 134 Conifer Lane. During construction, I gave birth to our first son Benjamin - he arrived 2 months early in an ambulance outside of the Kiawah Island Fire Station.
In 2001, we purchased our first villa, a 1-bedroom, beachside Seascape and Kiawah Island Getaways was born. Once we got our feet wet with the villa rental business, it was a like a fever for us. We both really enjoyed furnishing, decorating and maintaining the villas - not to mention the new found fun of meeting and talking to all sorts of people about Kiawah. Because we really enjoy what we do, other Kiawah property owners noticed and we started managing their properties as well.
Our whole family loves Kiawah and running Kiawah Island Getaways is a true family-run business. We personally prepare each villa prior to your arrival - because we want your stay to be perfect. We want you to fall in love with Kiawah too...and we know you will.
The Escape accommodates up to 2 adults and 2 children (12 and younger). It offers oceanviews, a super-comfortable king bed, 2 deluxe bathrooms and lots of extra storage in the living room, the Escape is sure to please all.
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!
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 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 store at Freshfields Village provides you with everything you need and the condo is a home 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 Jeannette have got it just right...think of everything, give you a steer should you need it, but leave you be otherwise...perfect.
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 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 ant better than this, and the best part is how easy it is to work with the owners on a reservation or equipment rentals!
We opted to enjoy our pre holiday! Thanksgiving celebration in Kiawah this year.
We were so excited to be near the Ocean and the History of Charleston and the surrounding area.
We were pleasantly surprised by this delightful find "the Escape" in Kiawah. Comfortable, with all the amenities at your fingertips, a cozy bed to jump into and enjoy the beautiful day breaks on the ocean.
The kitchen had all the utensils, pots , pans so you can enjoy your own cooking and yet there are so many great restaurant finds in the area.
Our hosts provided a great book of finds and delights in the area for us to search out.
No detail was missed.
A truly comfortable condo with Kiawah charm and European ambiance.
We hope to return again.
