About Shawn and Jeanette Lawson
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.

A slice of paradise!
Everything was exactly as described, PERFECT! The ocean views from the living space, balcony, and master bedroom were absolutely beautiful. The villa is literally steps away from the ocean and it was spotless with fresh flowers on the table and serene music playing when we first walked in. Check-in and out is a breeze. Our first trip to Kiawah Island was incredible and we couldn't have picked a better location for our family of 3. Thank you!
This lovely condo had everything we required as well as a stunning view from bed and an amazing beach. We will be back.
Kiawah Island Getaways went above and beyond. From live flowers on the table and beach towels in the closet! The condo was right on the water with incrediable views, clean and updated amenities. We had a great time and will definitely be booking with Kiawah Island Getaways in the future.
Wonderful long weekend
My husband, baby, and I spent a long weekend at the Escape. It was perfect and really easy. The condo was well kept and well equipped. The location (steps from the beach and walking/biking trails) was perfect. We couldn’t be happier with our visit.
amazing property, right on the beach
We recently stayed at the Windswept complex in Kiawha and we had an amazing vacation. The unit was exactly as described on the website, not only clean but well decorated, all appliances working, amazing ocean view from the bedroom, quiet. This unit is really perfectly located: directly on the beach and in walking distance from the Sanctuary, the island essential place for breakfast and lunch, and anything food. In the morning you are 7 minute beach walk from your coffee at Sanctuary market.
The beach is awesome and you can actually ride the bike on the beach in the sunset.
The owners were very attentive and provided a lot of information ( all accurate and helpful) prior to arrival and during our stay.
We rented bikes, umbrella and beach chairs which were a great addition to our time on the beach but, actually, that would be the only suggestion, that some of the beach chairs would need an update.
Overall we fell in love with Kiawah and part of the was the great unit that we had.
Very happy, will lease again!
My family was very pleased with the The Escape at Windswept at Kiawah Island Getaways. It was very clean, the amenities worked, and the location was near the beach. We have been vacationing at Kiawah since 2011, and stayed at various properties. Kiawah Island Getaways is the first company we plan to use again. Keep up the good work.
