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 Sea Shell is top-of-the-list with its luxury vacation accommodations. Located a simple 1 minute walk from the beach in a quiet wooded neighborhood, this cottage is the perfect place for a family, or several friends to spend their beach vacation.
This cottage was beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you could need for a great beach vacation. The beds were comfortable and the linens were luxurious. Just a short walk from the beach, the location of this home is ideal for anyone with small children.
We just returned from a fabulous stay at this Ocean Woods Cottage. It was clean, comfortable and beautifully appointed. The quality of the furnishings, linens and towels were excellent and the house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The location was great...just a short walk to the beach. It was so easy working with Kiawah Island Getaways. We also ordered bikes and boogie boards ahead of time and they were waiting for us on the deck as promised. The binder with helpful tips and restaurant information was also a great addition. This was our first visit to Kiawah and we are already looking forward to returning again soon!
We loved this home. We have been vacationing a week each summer in kiawah for 6 years and really enjoyed the Oceanwoods location. This home is located a few houses on sea lavender over the road so while you don't see the beach from there you are a quick walk to the boardwalk. We used a stroller to go to and from because our three children are under the age of 4 but it wasn't a mandatory. The home layout made me wishful that our home was like this-all one level. Able to see what was going on yet provide privacy in bedrooms. The design met my aesthetic requirements and the property was extremely well maintained and clean. We loved the screen porch with access to to the open porch and outdoor shower. The kitchen was well appointed with like new appliances and cooking utensils. Didn't find the typical rental property scraped up pots and pans. These were nice at this home so I felt really great cooking while there. The property company provided adequate and nice toiletries and towels. Even 4 beach towels which was a lovely surprise. We have already booked for next year.
We enjoyed our stay at 425 Sea Lavender. We found the cottage clean and you provided a lot of extras for us ie beach bag with towels and the kitchen was well stocked with cleaning supplies etc. The one or two minute walk to the beach was wonderful. My wife, children and grandchildren all had a wonderful time.
Our stay at the Oceanwoods villa was perfect! The photos of the property were very accurate & the cleanliness & overall care of the villa was very good. We especially enjoyed the well stocked kitchen & outdoor gas grill - we were able to enjoy cooking fresh seafood several nights. The short walk to the beach was very convenient. Everything in the property was labeled & detailed so there was none of the usual confusion of what lights worked where & which remote to use for the TV & DVD player. The linens & towels provided (including beach towels) were of excellent quality & the stocking of basics like toilet paper, paper towels, soap, laundry detergent, etc. made it very easy to move in & enjoy. I would highly recommend this property to friends & family. Working with Kiawah Island Getaways regarding the property was a pleasant experience with all arrangements handled easily & promptly. Their attention to detail is obvious in all aspects of renting a vacation home.
We have rented several times in the past in NC, happily, but this rental and property management was above and beyond all our expectations! The cottage, its location, and amenities are all top-notch. It was apparent that the property owners wanted to ensure that we had everything we might need to have a wonderful stay. The property clean and well-appointed, and its proximity to the beach was wonderful.
I fell in love driving onto the island -- and seeing the cottage sealed the deal. It was even more beautiful and comfortable than I expected. The property owners provided a binder full of information (in the cottage). It was really helpful as we made our plans for the week or decided what to do for dinner. I would recommend Kiawah Island Getaways and Steps Away, without hesitation. I was so sad to leave -- cannot wait to return!
