"Never Wanted To Leave!
My husband and I wanted a relaxing romantic beach vacation so we decided to go back for a second time to the Escape at Windswept on Kiawah Island. From the minute we entered the condo, complete serenity washed over both of us. We were greeted by an immaculate condo with fresh flowers sitting in a vase on the kitchen counter and soft music playing in the background. The condo is a neutral tone with light blue accents throughout making it feel large and open. The views of the ocean easily obtained simply stepping out onto the deck and walking into the bedroom. The bed linens were excellent: invitingly fluffy, soft, and tons of pillows. Towels were plentiful including two large beach towels. An empty beach tote and small cooler ready for our use was in the closet. Two frozen mugs were in the freezer. The kitchen was well stocked including olive oil, seasonings, and garbage bags. We enjoyed regular bike rides, the pristine beach, and nature watching! We saw deer, dolphins, pelicans, osprey, an alligator, and my favorite; a baby loggerhead turtle! We had one very rainy day where we stayed mostly inside and yet still very content. I mostly enjoyed waking to the view of the ocean from the bed. When the week was over, both my husband and I wanted to stay so much that we emailed Jeanette and Shawn if we could rent the condo for one more night. They quickly got back to us and though it was already rented, they were able to provide us one more night at another location very close by: The Beach Cottage at Mariners Watch. They made the move very easy having the new place ready by10:00am. The Beach Cottage at Mariners had a totally different feel (cottage style décor which was busting with color: pinks, blues, and greens) but with the same wonderful inviting detail: great bed linens, stocked kitchen, cooler, tote, and frozen mugs etc. The entire wall in the kitchen/living room area is a sliding glass door that leads to a screened-in-porch surrounded by beautiful green trees and a view of a bike path and small pound. The best part was that it was only 80 steps from the front door to the beach boardwalk! In all we loved our beach vacation and truly appreciate Jeanette and Shawn’s great attention to detail in making both rental locations superb!
