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!!

Our family of 4 with two children (11 and 3) stayed at The Mariner last week for our first visit to Kiawah. The trip as a whole was nothing short of perfection and much of that is due to Kiawah Island Getaways. From our first inquiry back in the Spring, in which Shawn promptly called me to discuss, to the ga-zillion email questions I had prior to our visit, in which Jeanette quickly respond with so much helpful information -even recognizing I had likely ordered a bike too small for my 11 yr son - every bit of the pre-trip was outstanding - reservations, deposit, payment, directions, info, etc. - all very easy and thorough. We arrived after a very long 12 yr drive with ease to see our bikes waiting for us with accompanying chairs, boogie-board and entered the unit to soft music and fresh flowers which lasted all week! The unit was exactly as protrayed in the photos and description - appointed so well with quality items throughout. I had brought a few minor household items not sure if they would have them - one in particular - a wine saver. I laughed and said out loud 'should have known!' when I found one in the drawer! They truly think of everything which is such a rarity in most condo rentals. Although the unit is cozy, it was absolutely perfect for our family. We did keep everything fairly tidy and put away during the stay which made the unit seem larger. The good size walk-in closet was a great surprise. We cooked the majority of our meals in the unit and found everything we needed. KIG has great recommendations even for where to stop en route in for groceries. On our first day on the island, Jeanette responded almost instantly to all of my texts as we got our bearings. In our opinion, The Mariner is in a perfect location on the island - close to all the daily/evening activities at Night Heron for kids and oriented for both East and West bike rides which we did daily. The unit, as promised, is 30 secs to the beach. Although there isn't an oceanview, you can hear it from the nice screened porch which I used every morning to read and enjoy my coffee. We truly couldn't have asked for better or more comprehensive service or accommodations. For us, our first trip to Kiawah provided something long desired - a week or true quality time with each other, enjoying nature and family activities, without the need to trek via car daily (although you certainly can do that if desired). We absolutely loved it will be back. Thank you Kiawah Island Getaways!!

Perfect villa for two

The Mariner is the perfect villa for two. The Mariner's Watch community is convenient to amenities of East Beach. Kiawah Island Getaways is a great company to rent from. They provide very good customer service. There was nothing for them to respond to from our end to because their instructions are complete, the villa is extremely clean, and well equipped. The walk to the beach is short and easy. We look forward to renting from KIG again (would be our third time) and trust your experience will be a good one.

We had a wonderful time. The property is less than a 2 minute walk from the beach (we walk fast so it was only 1 minute). The property was well maintained and they had everything we needed. The check-in and check-out process was smooth. The management team is very professional. Great customer service! We enjoyed being able to cook our own meals and the well stocked kitchen allowed us to do so. The unit is tastefully decorated. The screened porch was great also. There is a stackable washer/dryer unit and the laundry detergent was provided. The photos accurately reflected the property. By the way, the bed was incredibly comfortable. Not sure about the sleep sofa as my friend slept there but she didn't have any complaints.

We ate at La Tela in Freshfields which has very fresh salads and great pizza. If you are active, I definitely recommend renting bikes as it is a great way to see the island.

We had a great time and I have no complaints. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.

My wife and I had a delightful stay at this Kiawah Island villa rental the last week of March. It is as-described with a very short stroll to the beach. This being our first visit to Kiawah we like it better than Hilton Head. The proximity to the wonderful city of Charlston made for a very interesting vacation of food, history, shopping and general exploring during the early cool Spring bloom. The relaxation of the villa was perfect for the remainder of the days. The unit was fresh and clean and fully stocked with essentials to make for a comfortable stay. No complaints and we will be coming back soon.

Another Wonderful Vacation at Kiawah Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have vacationed at Kiawah Island for several years, and for the last ten years or so we have exclusively used Kiawah Island Getaways for an outstanding, memorable experience. We have stayed at The Vista, The Penthouse, The Treetops, and The Mariner multiple times. Just being at Kiawah is a wonderful experience, but adding the bonus of having Kiawah Island Getaways provide us with top notch villas makes our experience one that we treasure. Shawn and Jeanette's effort to provide an extremely clean, well decorated and welcoming environment in each of their villas speaks highly of their intent to make your vacation stay a memorable one. The extras they provide such as beach towels, a beach bag, cooler, books, games, and much more goes above and beyond what we experienced before we started booking our stay with Kiawah Island Getaways. To be greeted at the door of your villa with a lovely welcome sign designed for you, and then entering to relaxing music and the beauty of the villa itself is defintely just the best way to start your stay. The cooking utensils, dishes, glassware etc. are very good quality. They really think of it all...even ice cold mugs in the freezer! Even with all the extras, there is also the fact that Shawn and Jeanette are only a phone call away should you need anything. One evening during one of our stays, a woman and her young toddler accidently locked themselves out of their villa and needed help. We called Shawn and Jeanette who were more than happy to contact the resort the woman had booked her villa through and were able to have someone come outand got them back into their place. We just returned home from a wonderful three weeks at The Mariner and we're already talking about our next stay. Shawn and Jeanette have really worked hard to make Kiawah Island Getaways something very wonderful for anyone looking for an outstanding place to stay while enjoying all the natural beauty the island has to offer.
