Kiawah Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our 'Sandpiper at Shipwatch' villa is the most wonderful place to spend your summer vacation this year! Bring the kids and the grandparents - there is plenty of room for up to 6 people to sleep (1 king and 2 queen beds).

The 'Sandpiper' is oceanfront on Kiawah's West Beach and only 19 miles from historic downtown Charleston. It is just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean (fall asleep with the sound of the surf), and within a short walking distance to golf, tennis, shopping and restaurants.

Our second floor Shipwatch villa offers a wonderful view of the Atlantic Ocean from the living room and both bedrooms. Step out onto either of the oceanfront decks and enjoy the fresh sea air breezes. Enjoy sitting on the deck in one of our four counter-height teak chairs sipping a frozen drink and watching the ocean.

The bedrooms each have balconies overlooking palmetto trees and the ocean beyond. Each bedroom also has its own 26' flat panel TV/DVD combo and private bathroom (with granite countertops).

The master bedroom offers a king-size bed complete with a heavenly pillow-top mattress, down-alternative pillows and duvet. Be sure to see photos of this room - the colors are so soothing and relaxing.

The second bedroom has two queen-size beds each with a incredibly comfortable pillow-top mattresses, down-alternative pillows and duvets. Lay in bed and watch the ocean.

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 spent the additional money required for the personalized South Carolina license plate 'KIAWAH' (which we still own 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 (3563) 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!!

NICE RETURN TO THE BEACH AND SOUTH CAROLINA

  • 5 of 5
I am originally from the Carolina's but hadn't ever been to Kiawah. I loved it. The property was so well equipped and all the necessary amenities were there. Great kitchen, lovely bedroom furnishings and a super view to the ocean. A lot of thought went into the over all furnishings for this 2 BR condo. The owners did a wonderful job of providing little extras like towels for the beach or a cooler, or games for their guests.

This was a terrific vacation escape! The condo was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Easy walk to the beach and great biking opportunities. Easy and accommodating rental process, great directions on arrival. We will rent from them again.

BEST FAMILY ORIENTED VACATION WE'VE EVER TAKEN

Best Family oriented vacation we've ever taken
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had such a wonderful time during our vacation on Kiawah...we lead very hectic lives...it was so nice to relax and just enjoy all of our 4 kids in such a beautiful environment. There were so many fun things to do there...(beach, biking, fun activities at Night Heron, painting pottery, playing freeze tag on the beach at night)...the condo was gorgeous, and had all necessities (little things like tpaper, trash bags, hand soap and laundry supplies were so helpful), and we couldn't have asked for a better location! we said our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer...the kids even said when we were driving home yesterday that they wanted to come back for Spring Break! I would highly recommend any property listed with Kiawah Island Getaways to all friends and family:-)

KIAWAH ISLAND, SC GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This property is absolutely wonderful. It was clean, comfortable, and well maintained and I only wish we could have stayed longer. There were only two downsides and neither of them were the fault of the area or the property owners - these are just observations. Because the area is so unspoiled, families with children may find the young ones bored as the area does not have a large amount of artificial amusements nearby. If your child cannot be contented with fishing, swimming, bike riding, etc. and requires theme parks or video arcades to stay amused, this may not be the vacation for them. The second downside is that this glorious location is approx. 20 miles from Charleston. If most of your planned activities involve Charleston, you may want to stay closer to that charming city.

Now onto the good. The property looks directly over the sand dunes of Kiawah Island to the one on the most unspoiled beaches I've ever seen. The beach was (in early June) almost uninhabited so you could read a book in peace or take a long stroll in solitude. When you did see residents, they were among the most charming people I've met in recent times - always stopping to say "Hello" and chat a bit. The property is located just down the road from a small, planned, shopping center/town center (called "Freshfields") which had a number of shops where you could purchase anything you might have forgotten to bring with you. The shopping center also contained a number of fine restaurants. Speaking of restaurants, the Kiawah Island area had a larger number than I expected and they were all high quality. I did not have a bad meal the entire time I was there. Finding a restaurant was easy as the property contained a number of menus from the local restaurants.

The service and reservation process were also efficient and easy. Checking out of the property at the end of our stay was also a breeze.

SERENITY

  • 5 of 5
The view, the accomodations, the seclusion, all contributed to a perefectly relaxing get-away.
We could not believe this beautiful beach was never, ever crowded. We were practically alone at the beginning of the week.
The property recieves an A+ in cleanliness. The furnishings are first rate. The grounds are nicely maintained and manicured. The boardwalk to the beach maintains the natural dune boundry.
This is not a place for children or teenagers, but it is an excellent spot for adults to relax and enjoy the serenity.
