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 2002

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I loved our stay at the Shade villa. It is beautifully appointed, conveniently located, and quiet. We especially appreciated all the thoughtful details provided by the Lawsons: their restaurant recommendations and advice on visiting Charleston were excellent. The Shade villa is the perfect home base for a great vacation on Kiawah!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at 'The Shade' for our honeymoon and we couldn't have been happier. Everything was thought of and taken care of for us - beach bag, towels, chairs, bikes, etc.. We also really appreciated the book of restaurants and attractions in Kiawah and Charleston that was left for us. We tried out many of the suggested options there and were not disappointed.

Personal favorite part about 'The Shade' - the screened in area. We sat out there every morning with our coffee and watched the squirrels and birds before we went to the beach - complete serenity.

We'll be back to Kiawah, and when we go, we know we have a cozy place, close to the beach to stay!

A sweet stay

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I spent a week at "The Shade" and we could not have been happier. The villa was extremely comfortable, clean and well-appointed. The owners were very attentive to our needs. If you are looking for a relaxing, worry-free vacation, this is the place.

Outstanding Villa Rental

  • 5 of 5
"The Shade" was perfect for our little vacation. The décor is so tastefully done, and you can tell that every detail had thorough attention. I loved when we walked in for the first time, and the television with music was playing. Also, whatever 'smell' is in the condo is so clean. I asked the owners and found out it is Mr. Clean with Febreze in the Vanilla/Lavender Scent.

The location was perfect for us. Our goal was to tour the surrounding Charleston area, and we did this everyday using our rental car. We particularly liked returning each night to "The Shade" and relaxing in our own little apartment. We did not want to eat-out for every meal and the accommodations made that very easy and doable.

If/when we return to Kiawah we will not hesitate to use Kiawah Island Getaways again for a rental.

An Amazing Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Shade on Kiawah Island for one week of pure relaxation. The condo was beautiful, very clean and all the comforts of home. More than we expected. The location was perfect. A short walk to the beach. We brought our bicycles and spent hours exploring the many miles of bike trails the island offers. We felt like kids again. We decided we would never stay any place else.
The owners responded quickly to all of my e-mails prior to our trip. Great customer service.
I have told all of my friends about the Shade and recommended they plan a trip to Seascape villas.
It was so convenient to have a market and shopping within a bike ride.
We can't wait to go back!

Great al always

  • 5 of 5
This was our 5th stay on The Shade. The fact that we have returned 4 times should speak for itself. The owners are organized, communicate well, and most importantly provide an impeccably clean, up to date, comfortable condo. We have been to many different vacation locations, but none beats Kiawah Island and The Shade.
