  • Exceptional Home

    "Our group of 10 adults and one little baby stayed a week in this home. The house really is perfect and very pretty. It is clean and well maintained. Even with a crowded house, there is plenty of space and the bedrooms are quiet. We all loved our trip. It is a special house."

  • Nicely appointed, very comfortable oceanfront condo right on the beach

    "We have stayed in several condos on Wild Dunes and have had mixed experiences. My family loved this condo for lots of reasons. It is very warm and welcoming and it is furnished nicely and well kept. We like to cook-in a lot because we spend every spare minute on the beach and often don't want to use our time going out to eat, and it has a nice big kitchen with lots of cooking utensils/pots/pans/dishes. The couch and chairs in the living room were very comfortable---not always the case with other condos. There is a TV in every bedroom plus the living room and clear directions for using the TVs and locating channels. This isn't always the case in other condos and can be a hassle. The bathrooms for each bedroom is a big plus. The owners were very customer service oriented and answered our questions promptly and completely. If we have a chance, we will definitely stay here again. Oh - one more thing. The pool has its own bathrooms. This is a very big plus and wasn't the case at other condos on Wild Dunes we stayed at. We would have to go back to our condo if we were at the beach or pool."

  • Can't get closer to the water unless on a boat!

    "We just returned from a week long stay at this Ocean Club Villa and I must say we miss it already! It was so wonderful to be able to see and hear the ocean from every room in the house practically. The views are absolutely amazing. We enjoyed watching all the ships going in and out of Charleston everyday along with the golfers finishing up on the 18th. The only negative is the sandbags out in the front of the building but hopefully this will be fixed in the near future. We can't wait to return for another amazing week long family vacation!"
