Windswept Villas villa description

The Penthouse at Windswept is a very special place to spend your time on Kiawah, with exceptional accommodations and unmatched ocean views.

Located just 30 minutes from historic downtown Charleston, on Kiawah's East Beach, our premier Windswept Villa, the 'Penthouse', is just Sea Shell from the Atlantic Ocean and within a short walking distance to the Night Heron Park, the (oh so elegant) Sanctuary hotel, shopping and many restaurants.

Located on the top two floors of Windswept (4th and 5th), the Penthouse offers incredible sweeping ocean views throughout the villa. Not to be outdone by the view, real emphasis has been placed on comfort--with custom drapery, designer furniture and colors, original oil paintings granite countertops throughout and wireless internet access. Step out onto the living room balcony and enjoy the stunning 180-degree ocean views and refreshing sea breezes.

The living room is furnished with a Samsung 60' LED TV, Samsung Sound Bar (Great for TV sound - and you can also bluetooth your music to this!!), BluRay player, CD player, IPod dock/charging station and wireless internet access (just bring your laptop).

Upstairs, the Penthouse Master Bedroom #1 offers superb views of the ocean from the king-sized bed. And oh, every bed in this villa is sooo comfy! Each bed is complete with pillow-top mattresses, Egyptian-cotton sheets, down-alternative pillows, down-alternative comforters and duvet covers. This suite includes a 32' flat panel TV/DVD, a large bathroom with a double vanity, deluxe tile shower and walk-in closet.

Just down the hall, the Penthouse Master Bedroom #2 also offers superb views of the ocean from the king-sized bed. The suite includes a 32' flat panel TV/DVD, an even larger master bathroom with a double vanity, deluxe tile shower and over-sized garden tub.

Downstairs, in the third bedroom there are two twin beds. Adjacent to the bedroom is a bathroom with a shower/tub combination and a double vanity.

This villa is furnished with everything from original oil paintings, handwoven wool rugs, washer/dryer, utensils, pots and pans, stainless steel appliances (including a Keurig Coffee maker) to a cooler and beach towels. The beach is just an elevator ride away!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: 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!!
