The Escape at Windswept
Ocean views anchor both the living room and master bedroom. Or slide open the balcony door for a more immersive ocean-view experience. Take in the tranquil landscape as the sun rises over the open water, listen to the steady sound of waves in the distance, and indulge in the refreshing sea breeze.
With 1 bedroom and 2 bathrooms, the Escape at Windswept can comfortably accommodate a couple or young family searching for the perfect beach vacation. Sleep in the master bedroom, which features majestic natural views from the comfort of a king-sized bed.
Outfitted with pillow-top mattresses, memory-foam toppers, Egyptian-cotton sheets and down-alternative pillows, it’s the ideal place to enjoy a hot cup of coffee on a lazy morning or catch up on the latest news, which you can watch on the suite’s 27-inch flat-panel television.
Easy and Comfortable Accommodations
When you’re finally ready to start your day, feel free to take your time in the master bathroom, complete with a large glass walk-in shower.
Let the kids get cozy in the living room, which has a sleeper sofa, media center with a 32-inch television, DVD player and small library of DVDs and books. (And, of course, like any modern home, you have full access to wireless internet during your stay.)
In addition to serving as extra sleeping space, families often pass time in the living room, making plans for a day on the beach or kicking back in the evening after spending all afternoon in the sun.
An accessible floor plan in this part of the villa makes it easy to move from one room to the other as you cook a meal in the fully furnished, elegant kitchen appointed with stainless steel appliances or play board games in the dining room as the sun starts to set. And, to make your vacation that much easier, the on-site washer and dryer are located just off the kitchen.
A One-Minute Walk to the Beach
Head out the door to see what the neighborhood has in store. Only a one-minute walk away you’ll find 10 miles of pristine beach. Also within walking distance are shopping opportunities, restaurants and the Night Heron Park. For a longer excursion, hop in your car and head to historic downtown Charleston, only a 30-minute drive away.
As idyllic as The Escape at Windswept is, if you feel you need more room for your vacation, check out the 3-bedroom Penthouse and 2-bedroom Mariah, both villas located in the Windswept complex.
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.
From the moment you step into this oceanfront vacation rental, stress leaves your shoulders and a light sense of relaxation takes its place.
The condo was wonderful. Very clean and comfortable. We appreciated how well stocked it was: laundry detergent, soap, toilet paper, beach towels, cooler as this all made our stay very convenient. We enjoyed the island and how much it had grown in the last 10 years that we had been there. The bike paths were incredible and we enjoyed seeing all the wildlife that Kiawah had. Thank you for a memorable vacation! We would easily stay in this condo again, or possibly a larger one if we bring our family along!
This was my 4 year old sons first encounter with the beach. Kiawah island is truly a breathtaking place. The villa was perfect. We had a tropical storm blow through on our first night, so the games provided in the villa were a perfect touch on the rainy night.
My wife and I arrived to a personal greeting on the door of this gorgeous villa. Walking inside, we heard soft music, saw fresh flowers on the table and a fresh smell greeted us. The view was breathtaking from the villa. We could see the ocean and beack from our bedroom, which was my wife's favorite place to watch the waves and just relax. I enjoyed the deck where I could sit back and enjoy a glass of wine while watching the surf breaking on the shore and the deer enjoying snacks right below our villa in the dunes. And to top it off, the weather was amazing.....sunny and highs in the mid-80's in mid-May. It was a very short walk to the wide, clean Kiawah beach. We have been coming to Kiawah for over 30 years now, and there isn't a better place to vacation for us than Kiawah anwhere in the world. Shawn and Jeanette made it that much more enjoyable with this outstanding villa, the best one we have been in on the island. Everything was impeccable and extremely clean. Every detail was attended to and it was very well appointed. My wife and I usually vacation here with our family and rent a house in Vanderhorst. But for just the 2 of us on a romantic vacation, The Escape is impossible to beat. We'll definitely be back soon. We highly recommend renting from Shawn and Jeanette and Kiawah Island Getaways.
The villa was all it was advertised to be and more! The villa itself is very nice and the view, wow, it was fantastic! We spent most ever morning and afternoon sitting on the deck enjoying the view. The beach at Kiawah is gorgeous! Shawn and Jeanette were great to work with during our planning and they provided a ton on information for us about the island, restaurants, and surrounding areas. We would certainly look to rent this villa again upon an return trip!!
The villa was very clean, comfortable, and had all the amenities we needed. Before our arrival we received all the necessary information (gate pass; entrance code; items already in the villa that we didn't need to pack; etc). Once we arrived there was a big binder of add'l info and places to eat & visit.
This villa is excellent. Beautiful view from the Master bedroom of the sunrise at Kiawah over the beach. You will not be disappointed. Shawn and Jeanette are excellent to work with and go to the extra effort to make your stay the best!
