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.
Shawn and Jeanette Lawson purchased this Cottage in 2015
What makes this Cottage unique
Taking cues from beachside cottages found in Hawaii, Bali and the Caribbean, this vacation rental has a fresh, beach-inspired vibe, chic dining spaces, and refreshing lagoon-views fringed with palm trees.
The property where we stayed was great. Had all that we needed and more. Host was great!
The cottage was perfect. Cottage was well equipp.
We loved our stay! The cottage is well equipped with high end appliances, and cooking equipment. The four bedrooms each have their own bathroom. Outdoor seating was comfortable and a five minute walk to the beach. Will definitely stay again. Kiawah Getaways was wonderful to communicate with. Enjoyed their special touches; flowers daily emails, of places to go ,and recipes. Truly wonderful!
Best vacation ever!
Me and my family stayed for three nights at the surf shack and it was the best vacation ever! I had just graduated med school and the hosts had a sweet congratulatory note with flowers on the table when we arrived! This was one of many small touches that made our experience one that we will never forget! Thank you!!
We had a wonderful time visiting Kiawah! The surf shack was adorable, clean and cozy! Perfectly located with only a 5 minute walk to beach and pool. The bike path is easily accessible and the neighborhood is friendly. The pond provides lovely privacy and a quiet little sanctuary! We can’t wait to go back next year!
Perfect + Posh!
Fair warning: there aren't any "Life's Better at the Beach" pillows here. If you want a crusty spot filled with beachy bric-a-brac, this is NOT for you. Surf Shack is über farmhouse/beachhouse chic, what everyone wants these days. White painted floors, crisp interiors, Sub-Zero fridge, Wolf range, strong WiFi, the MOST comfortable beds/bedding/pillows/towels ever. I have been blessed to travel the world, staying at top notch resorts and hotels from the Ritz Paris to Blackberry Farm to One & Only Palmilla, you name it. I'd take this sweet little enclave over any $18k/night suite, ever! Thanks Jeanette for the top notch stay, from speedy communication to general friendliness.
Fantastic Property, with well appointed ammenities
The property we extremely clean, and well appointed. Ther was no detail of this property that wasn’t thought of. The space was well laid out for the size and they maximized each area of the living space. The property was very welcoming and cozy, and has all the creature comforts. When other properties list their amenities I still bring extra...not at this property. When they say it will be there, it most certainly was. They set the standard high!
