About Mark Mintich

We are a beach loving family and hope to retire here someday. We live in Charlotte, NC and come down as often as possible. Building family memories of time spent together at Wild Dunes is a high priority because we know that family time is precious.

Mark Mintich purchased this condo in 1996

Why Mark Mintich chose Summer Dunes Lane

The Wild Dunes community appealed to us because of the residential (non-commercial) feel. Being a gated community reduces the volume of traffic experienced in other traditional beach vacation areas. The beaches are not crowded and the grounds are beautiful. I feel safer as my children engage in activities that are not always in my sight.

What makes this condo unique

There are only 24 condominiums in the Tidewater complex. This means that there are fewer people in our pool and on our grounds. The bottom units (like ours) have a private stair to the pool and beach. This is great because you don't have to walk around the building to get inside and children can go between the pool and porch while you watch. It has a traditional beach cottage feel.

Perfect getaway for a family

  • 5 of 5

Everything was a described and pictured. The two reserved beach chairs and resort style umbrella set up on the beach each day was fantastic. The ease of going from the screened in porch to the pool and beach was priceless with two little kids. Would recommend to anybody.

Relaxing escape

  • 5 of 5

Couldn’t have asked for a better location! Just steps to the pool and beach which was fantastic with two little kids. Loved the screened in back porch, was spacious enough to leave our beach items and towels to dry and nice size table for eating meals as well. Had a great time!

Great location near beach and pool!

  • 4 of 5

The property was nicely appointed, located almost at the end of Wild Dunes community. This was great because it was not crowded and it was very quiet. The property was spacious enough for us even with our 4 bikes inside. We had a relaxing time with our 2 children. The pool was right out the back patio which made it convenient for keeping an eye on them. This was our first visit to IOP/Charleston so we were not sure what to expect. We enjoyed our time so much this may be an annual trip. The only negative thing was bad cell coverage on the beach/IOP. We typically did not get good reception until we crossed the bridge into Mount Pleasant. The wifi in the condo worked well! Overall, I would recommend IOP and this condo.

Below Average

  • 3 of 5

The location of this property is fabulous. So convenient and super easy for families with young children. The property itself was okay. As other reviewers have said, it is in desperate need of an upgrade. It was for the most part clean (though the carpet in the living room was not) but little things like broken handles on the shower door, sliding door from the living room to the patio won’t open, awful pull out sofa with stains all over. It just felt dingy and unkept for the price. We travel often and use HomeAway/VRBO very often and this property was below average in our opinion. Couple of things to take note of- there are no beach/pool towels provided, no cooler of any sort provided, (all of which have always been provided in other beachfront condos we have stayed. We purchased a cooler and left it at the property so hopefully future guests will have it.) Th beach wagon provided will not roll and was unusable, the mosquitos at the pool and surrounding grass areas were AWFUL. It made evenings around the pool non existent. We traveled with another family who rented a 2bed 2bath the floor above us and the difference in quality and in condo amenities was astounding. (For the same rate)

The complex was quiet and family friendly. We did have a few issues arise and the owners were prompt to respond and very pleasant. The kitchen was updated and fairly well appointed. We enjoyed our time at this property but would not recommend to our friends and famIly.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to provide your comments. We have never had a mosquito problem at the pool before, but I understand from the management group that heavy spring rains resulted in standing water and allowed the mosquito outbreak. I am sure that caused a lot of aggravation for your vacation and we are sorry. The county has been working to bring the situation under control. The sofa and carpet were cleaned prior to the summer rental season and we have not had any comments of a problem. Unfortunately, some rental guests are not careful with the property and stains can result. If we had been made aware of the situation we would have been glad to have professional cleaners take care of this during your stay. We do not provide beach towels or coolers with the property because there isn't a way to make sure they are in good condition for a guest. Imagine if you were expecting a cooler and the previous guest left it dirty or decided to take it with them. It is ok if a guest wants to leave something for another guest to use but if it isn't functional such as the wagon you mentioned then it is just in the way. As a gift for our summer guests we provide a free umbrella and two chairs set up and removed daily on the beach to make your stay more pleasant. Since we have owned this condo for over 20 years it is not feasible to renovate the unit each year so instead, we work on an area each off season. This is our home and we are glad to share it with our guests. Our guests make it possible for us to have the property and we want them to have a good experience. We have had many families return for multiple vacations. Knowing that this is a place of joy for them is what we want. Mark and Beth

Ridiculously convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Members of our extended family own a beach front property within Wild Dunes, so we have visited often and I have always considered it to have the most convenient beach, pool, and resort access. This property actually has better access to all three. There is no haul through a parking lot, up several flights of stairs, then down a long hall with all your beach gear. We didn't even pack a lunch for the beach because it was so easy to pop up to the house for restrooms and refreshments. Our thanks to the Mintich family for sharing their home.
