Kiawah Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths

'The Mariah Villa', is located just 14 miles from historic downtown Charleston, on Kiawah's East Beach, and just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean (you can see and hear the surf from your bedroom), the Night Heron Park, The Sanctuary hotel, shopping and restaurants.

Our premier end unit Windswept offers ocean views throughout the villa - with a real emphasis on luxurious comfort... professionally decorated with custom drapery, designer furniture and colors, original artwork and granite countertops throughout. Step out onto the living room balcony and enjoy the ocean view and refreshing sea breezes.

Upstairs, the 'Mariah' master bedroom suite offers wonderful views of the ocean from the king-size bed. The king bed is complete with memory foam topper, Egyptian-cotton sheets, down-alternative pillows and down-alternative duvet. The suite includes a huge master bathroom (double vanity, an over-sized tub and separate shower), 32' flat panel TV/DVD, a separate private reading area (this also overlooks the ocean) and a large walk-in closet.

Downstairs, in the 'Mariah' second bedroom there are two twins, complete with pillow-top mattresses, Egyptian-cotton sheets, down-alternative pillows and 27' flat panel TV/DVD. Twin Aero beds are available for additional sleeping - we find these to far more comfortable, easier to set-up and more versatile than sleeper sofas. .

This villa is also fully furnished with original artwork, locally crafted ironwork, handwoven wool rugs, washer/dryer, utensils, pots & pans, stainless steel appliances, a 42' flat panel TV (in living room), DVD player, CD player, IPod dock/charging station and wireless internet access (just bring your laptop). The beach is just an elevator ride away!

The 'Mariah' accommodates up to 4 adults and 2 small children (12 yrs and younger). No smoking, no pets.

We rent fourteen of the finest villas/cottages on Kiawah:

- 4BR Seascape, Oceanfront, Oceanviews, DELUXE!

About Shawn and Jeanette Lawson

About Owners/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!!

Shawn and Jeanette Lawson purchased this villa in 2005

Almost everything

Nice and clean. The owners and managers are very organized and everything was done as promised. Only complaint would be the very soft master bed. If you don't mind, you have lovely views. Also, if you need strollers, be prpared to carry them upnthe first flight. I think all places on the island have the same issue.

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting your review. Just a note to let folks know that the master bed is complete with a new top-quality mattress, a memory foam mattress topper, deliciously soft sheets, duvet cover and fluffy pillows. All of our properties have exceptional bedding, and although each guest has different preferences, most find our beds to be more comfortable than their own.

Incredible Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation to Kiawah Island was incredible. From our very first communication with the property managers Jeanette & Shawn - to our very last day, everything was first class. Every minute detail was taken care of from booking the unit, to directions on how to find the property, to places to visit and restaurants to venture to. The unit itself was 5-star - all the amenities you could want and absolutely immaculate. We loved the area/island and will without a doubt vacation here again. We found Kiawah relaxing, fresh and stressfree.

Thanks Jeanette & Shawn for an incredible, first-rate vacation!

Vacation At Villa Mariah, Kiawah Island

  • 5 of 5
Kiawah Island offers a wonderful panorama of sea, lagoons, wet lands, landscape and golf courses. Villa Mariah has outstanding ocean views from the living, dining, master bedroom and outdoor terrace. Lovely property. Very clean, well maintained and welcoming. We found the decor to be tasetful and appealing. The web is well designed and easy to navigate. The site accurately reflects the villa's appearance and amenities. However, the outdoor terrace was smaller than we thought it would be. The owners were very helpful before and during our stay. In fact, the owners were the best rental group that I have encountered. They provided lots of information about the area's attractions, including directions to Charleston as well as details concerning the villa. Would definately recommend this property. We enjoyed bike riding, the gym, the pool and beach. Also enjoyed beautiful Charleston. Four of us had a wonderful experience at Cafe Cru, a Charleston restaurant. The food and service were outstanding. We thought the space was warm and inviting. For more casual dining, we liked Red, a restaurant on the Marina not far from Kiawah. One thought: the Windswept properties have about 5 or 6 steps leading to the elevator. In the future, we will keep that in mind when packing so as to avoid having to carry very heavy items up the stairs. There are no dollies or carts for luggage transport. We did not notice any ramp access as well.
