  • Just like home… maybe better

    "This, our second stay with Kiawah Island Getaways, we were joined by our daughter and son-in-law. The Treetops Villa welcomed us in a perfect state of readiness. We were greeted by music, a streaming photo montage of the island and a personalized note, a wonderful first impression. The Treetops space was impeccable, comfortable and roomy with a thoughtful floor plan for privacy. The unit was stylish, contemporary and cozy in decor. This, a corner unit with three separate balconies allowed for an outdoors-in feeling and a nice cross breeze. Whether you choose to prepare a meal or not, the galley kitchen stood ready and stocked. The baths were bright, pretty and updated, in perfect working order with plenty of very nice towels. You will find all your beach needs, from towels to a cooler, basket and more tucked away in a closet, along with a fun collection of books, games and dvds. We liked the modern touches of technology, wifi, sound bar, entertainment systems in all rooms and state of the art (easy to use) Nest thermostat We noticed and appreciated the smartly placed lighting throughout the villa. The Lawson's three ring information binder with menu, directions and such was a helpful and nice touch. We will definitely return to beautiful Kiawah and rent this or another unit from Kiawah Island Getaways again! Rent with complete confidence from Kiawah Island Getaways."

  • Great beach house for family vacation!

    "We rented this oceanfront house for a ten person family vacation and had a wonderful time. The house is spacious, well laid out, and has a fabulous deck overlooking it's own private beach. We saw dolphins almost every day we were there in June. The water is warm and the waves gentle most mornings and vigorous most evenings. Kiawah island is beautiful and a reasonable drive to Charleston for city touring. If you're dreaming of a beach vacation, this is the place to stay!"

  • Excellent rental - fantastic owners!

    "My husband and I were looking for a new experience for our annual spring break vacation. We have spent the last 13+ years going to Florida and were looking for something new. We came across Bruce and Pauline's listing and decided to contact them. Their immediate response and the ease in renting this property was absolutely fantastic. They were extremely accomodating, efficient and friendly. Best experience ever in booking a trip. Now, on to the house. It was all the listing says it is, plus more. My husband and I took our 3 teenage children and my 72 year old father, as he/we lost our Mom on March 7th, 2014 and wanted to get him to go away with us. The house is furnished beautifully and very comfortable. We dined out and cooked in. Being there at the end of March, it was not really tourist season so it wasn't very busy. That was a bonus when going out to dinner and not having to wait. The temperatures at that time of year were slightly cool ( mid 60's to low 70's) but that did not stop us from hitting the beach and pool. We rented bikes which was great for the kids. Night Heron Park is a great family park, we understand the golf is outstanding ( didn't get a chance to go because of rain) and the dining facilities on-site were fantastic. Jim and I highly recommend this property AND the owners. You really couldn't ask for a better experience all the way around. We plan to go back!"

  • Great house on Kiawah

    "This house met all of our needs while vacationing on Kiawah Island. It is very close to the beach access on a quiet residential street, the listing description was accurate. The house was much better than the photos. The property was clean and well-maintained. The furniture in the great room was very comfortable with 2 recliners and sofa and love seat. The sun room was also a nice place to relax. The beds and linens were very comfortable as well. The hot tub was great! After a good soak, we slept like babies. Just what we needed for a much needed relaxing vacation. We would rent this house again. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions"

Kiawah Island Travel Tips

About 21 miles from exciting Charleston is the lovely oasis of Kiawah Island, known for its natural beauty and welcoming hospitality. It's a wonderful spot for a romantic getaway for two or a fun-filled adventure for the whole family.

Golf lovers will find five championship courses on the island, so there's plenty of opportunities to practice your swing and challenge others to a friendly game.

Kiawah Island is also known for its pristine 10 miles of beaches that will make you want to spend as much time as possible soaking up the sun and relaxing in the surf. Whether you're ready for some high-energy fun while frolicking in the waves or looking for some peace and quiet as you catch up on your reading, there's plenty of beach for everyone to enjoy. The Travel Channel has honored the island as one of the "Top 10 Beaches for Families," while national Geographic Traveler called the island the "Second Most Romantic Beach in America." The rest of the natural scenery is a treat as well, including the maritime forests and marshes where you might catch a glimpse of a turtle, seabird or whitetail deer.

There's also plenty to experience indoors with a variety of dining options to suit all tastes and lovely shops lining the streets where you can enjoy some retail therapy picking out the perfect souvenirs.
