About Maxine Spohn

I bought this unit the first week June of 2012. Having been a regular guest on Kiawah, I found it almost impossible to leave once here. I knew I had to have a villa on the ocean. I love fishing hiking, especially bike riding, walking the beach, reading, eating great food, the symphony, theater, music, art, and my most favorite is people--getting to know people. Kiawah has it all.

Maxine Spohn purchased this villa in 2012

Why Maxine Spohn chose Kiawah Island

I knew that I needed a view and since Kiawah has a 4 story building restriction, I wanted to be on the top floor because the view of the ocean is so beautiful from here. Even the Sanctuary Hotel one building away is only 3 stories tall. It was important to me to not only wake up each morning looking at the ocean but also hearing it. My favorite city in the US is Charleston and Kiawah is such close proximity.

What makes this villa unique

Watching the glorious Kiawah sunset from my covered balcony and having a great glass of wine with my friends and family is the stuff memories are made of. Having world class golf courses in my backyard to be relished and enjoyed as well as the first class tennis facilities. The spa at the Sanctuary has been enjoyed by my friends and is rated as one of the top 5 spas in the US.

The BEST pre rental experience I've ever had

  • 5 of 5

I worked with Maxine to rent her beautiful condo in February. She was a dream going above and beyond to make sure my experience booking her place was exceptional and easy. Her true character came to light when we had to cancel due to a family emergency. She made sure I got my refund in a timely manner and called me to be sure all had been taken care of. She was so nice, professional,and very caring. I can't wait to work with her again and have told all my family and friends to do the same. It's so hard in this day and time to find a real person that really cares about your comfort and well being and not just views you as a renter. She was lovely and I appreciate her so very much. Hats off to Maxine.

Everything I wanted and more! Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Maxine, what can I say, it was everything you described and more. We loved our week at your home. It was beautiful, clean and lovely. My two young sons loved it as well. We had everything we needed! We were so comfortable in your home and I just emailed you to rebook for next year! We loved Kiawah as well. So much to do and see. We cannot wait to come back. We were so blessed to have found such a beautiful place to spend quality time with our sons.

Best vacation in a long time.

  • 5 of 5

This is not a rental. When you walk into Maxine's condo, you realize you have come home. I have never stayed in another place that was outfitted as well as this one. To say it is comfortable is a gross understatement. Maxine promises her place is the nicest on the island. I think she is being humble. Her place is beautiful, but also wonderfully comfortable. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I did not realize when I inquired about Maxine's place, I would be making a new friend. I couldn't even wait until we got home to write my review. We are still here and don't want to leave. Thank you Maxine for sharing your beautiful home with us. We can't wait to come back. Maxine made this such a wonderful trip for us. She is amazing with all of her wonderful information and willingness to be available for any questions. Make sure you rent or bring bicycles. The trails are great. Thank you again Maxine.

Owner's Response: I try hard every day to do my best for my guests. I don't expect anything in return...I just hope that in some way I can help contribute to their memories while on vacationing on exquisite Kiawah. But Wow!!...I was walking on Cloud 9 today because of you, Stephanie. Thank you so much for your wonderful acknowledgement and recognition of my home and of my efforts on behalf of my guests.. You really touched my heart. You were a joy to work with and to help. I look forward to your return visit. Come back soon...real soon!!

Superb Accommodations! Informative and Friendly Owner!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t wait to write a review on this property! 4464 Windswept is beautiful, clean and well equipped. Recently remodeled w/top-of-the-line finishes! The views are fabulous! Beach access is extremely convenient. It is everything you need for a memorable trip to Kiawah. We had three generations together during our stay, and all three were very impressed and want to go back.

The owner is extremely pleasant and very helpful. She sends a newsletter w/suggestions on restaurants, bikes, shopping, etc. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us upon our arrival. Nice touch!!

There really are not enough words to describe the Penthouse. The Penthouse is beautifully decorated and furnished with every comfort and amenity you could imagine. From the keyless entry, to the good-quality lines and towels and nicely stocked kitchen, the Penthouse surpassed our expectations. Pictures do not do the place justice….. it is more beautiful in person! The grand bonus to the Penthouse is the owner Maxine, she is absolutely lovely. She truly knows the meaning of southern hospitality. She checked on us several times during our stay. We not only had a wonderful vacation in a beautiful place we gained a new friend, Maxine. We loved everything about our trip to Kiawah and our stay, that we immediately booked our vacation for next year and added an extra week. See you in September if not before!

Owner's Response: Well, I have an ear to ear smile. I adore all of my guests and love providing for their needs, wants, and desires whenever possible to help create a memorable vacation; however, it is truly a joyful experience when I can meet them in person as I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know you. It is a meaningful acknowledgement to know that you experienced and appreciated that which I have intentionally tried to create for you. I too feel like I have made a wonderful friend in you Lynn. I look forward to your next visit. Maxine
