About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Charleston voted Conde Nast's number one world travel destination AGAIN. Enjoy the world-class amenities of at Wild Dunes Resort from the most desirable neighborhood in Wild Dunes, Seaside in the Grand Pavilion. Serenity–by-the-Sea, a Victorian beach cottage re-creation, is set among white picket fences with its own rose garden. Located on a quiet, palm tree-lined cul-de-sac only 100 walking steps from the beach in the most sought-after area of the resort. The home’s architecture evokes a simpler, quieter, relaxed atmosphere to allow enhanced enjoyment of Wild Dunes island living and Charleston’s deep historic tradition.

This 2200-square-foot home, built oversized by the developer, features an open floor plan broken only by the wood-burning fireplace. The main living area, featuring 10-foot ceilings, includes a living room, dining room and kitchen opening to the largest screen porch in Seaside. The porch is large enough for lounging and dining under two ceiling fans and two large skylights.

This spacious house features three bedrooms; two master suites with private baths - one with king bed, the second with queen bed. One master includes a large sitting area with its own TV and DVD player. The third bedroom, located just off the living room, shares the bath that opens to the living area. All beds come complete with luxurious 600 thread-count cotton sheets.

Porches are the central theme of all the Seaside houses. A large front porch with old-fashioned rocking chairs and porch swing is perfect for greeting friends and neighbors walking by on their way to all the social activities at the nearby Grand Pavilion. The expansive back screened porch is perfect for outdoor dining and lounging in softly-cushioned sofas and chairs while still having enough room for the oversized hammock. Even in inclement weather the screen porch offers plenty of space to snooze or read a book while listening to the rain on the tin roof. Eight sets of French doors provide abundant light and access from all rooms to one of the porches.

No vacation home is complete without the required entertainment accessories. A flat screen TV with high-definition cable service in the living room, and flat screeen TVs in all bedrooms allow everyone to view their favorite programming. Wireless high-speed Internet access is included, keeping email available to those who need it.

Staying within the gated community of Wild Dunes affords great relaxation for family members of all ages. Seaside guests also enjoy access to three Grand Pavilion pools and Wild Dunes beaches just steps away. Whether relaxing on the beach, at the pool, or enjoying iced island drinks at the Grand Pavilion, there is something for everyone during your relaxing visit in South Carolina’s Low Country.

Guest Comments

'The house is fabulous - very comfortable and accommodating. It feels like we are sitting in a friend's home not a rental! Our daughter had some girlfriends come visit and we loved eating and talking on the fabulous screen porch. Thank-you for the fresh flowers and evereything you did to make our stay so special. We would love to come back and stay again.' Mike and Linda - Lynchburg, Va.

'Thank you so much for sharing your lovely cottage. We felt like we were visiting someone's home rather than renting a vacation cottage. Your love for this home is very apparent, and we loved it as well. We hope to return, if you'll have us. Thanks again. It was a pleasure to meet you! The fresh roses were wonderful! You're the best!' Larry and Jan - Cleveland, Ohio

'A very comfy, cosy house with extremely accommodating owners. It was a pleasure to meet you! Heaven is definately a little closer in a house by the sea!' Alick and Joan - Ontario, Canada

'Thank-you for renting your home! You have a perfect location for the beach, pools, market and play yard. Thank-you for the movies and games. You provide a beautiful experience and southern hospitality. We look forward to seeing you soon!' Frank and Kim - Cincinnati, Ohio

Owner info

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are oceanside in the Seaside section of the Grand Pavilion. Near enough -- less than 5 minutes walk -- to the main area of the pavilion to enjoy the pools (which only Seaside Grand Pavilion renters are now allowed to use in the daytime), evening music and entertainment and the grand pavilion cafe and bar -- but far enough away-- to still retain the quiet and solitude for true relaxation. We are also within 5 minutes walk to the center of the resort including The Lettered Olive, Hudson's Market, the tennis center and the Harbor golf shop. You don't need to get in the car to enjoy most of Wild Dunes finest
