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 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.

What makes this villa unique

From the moment you step into this oceanfront vacation rental, stress leaves your shoulders and a light sense of relaxation takes its place.

amazing property, right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

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.

The Escape was truly an escape!

  • 5 of 5

The property was better than advertised. We have rented many properties at Kiawah and other destinations that advertise as top quality only to typically be disappointed by some aspect of the villa or home. Not this time, the Escape at Windswept was everything the owners advertised. We were particularly impressed with the cleanliness of the unit, the decor, and the kitchen truly did have a more than adequate supply of pots and pans, utensils, and other items we needed. We would certainly recommend this unit if you want a comfortable well appointed one bedroom with a great view. We will definitely use Kiawah Island Getaway properties for our future Kiawah vacations.

Absolutely stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough how perfect this condo was! This was our first trip to Kiawah and I'm so happy we decided to stay here. The decor inside the condo was absolutely stunning and serene. The views of the ocean throughout the condo were breathtaking. The unit came equipped with everything you could need including nice little touches like frozen mugs and fresh flowers. The owners were more than accommodating from the minute we decided to book the unit. Our next trip back to the Island we will be re-booking here for sure!
