Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My family truly loved this home. It was spacious with beautiful colors and decor. The home was one of the cleanest vacation rentals we have stayed at. Normally we spend some time on arrival day cleaning, which was nice to spend that time enjoying the home and beach. We experienced a problem with debri in pool upon arrival, which was resolved immediately with the rental company. I especially loved the extra pantry area to keep food and paper products and the wine frig to keep extra drinks to cool for the beach. I would recommend driving to drop off canopies and heavy items at beach as it is not an easy walk with large items. Also, no DVD and television is Samsung smart tv. I would recommend to bring a device that could work with television on rainy days (iPhones did not work but grandchild's kindle did work with tv). The sports card was limited as we had to pay $15 per person per day to use fitness center and could not use lap pool until 10 (use to swimming laps early am) and we were on beach by 10. Short drive to Charlestown for historic sight seeing, outlet malls, aquarium and nice dinner options. I would absolutely recommend this vacation rental to others. Thank you for sharing your home with my family.

Great rental and perfect layout for our family

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a home in a Wild Dunes, and we could not have asked for any better experience. Having two masters worked out great for our family. My family(my husband and I, two teenagers, and two preteens) stayed downstairs and the upstairs bedroom and bath worked out perfect for my parents. It gave them a place to escape if we were not ready for bed when they were. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything for we chose to cook most all of our meals. We were surprised and how comfortable the mattresses were and their high quality. We highly recommend this home and look forward to visiting again soon! Thanks!

Extremely satisfying stay!

  • 5 of 5

Property was wonderful. Very nicely decorated, and comfortable. Amenities were very generous. Enjoyed the wave pool and my grandson enjoyed the swings. Could not have asked for a nicer place for a beach vacation. Wish we had been able to stay longer because there was so much more that we did not have time to do. Our first beach stay in SC and we were impressed with the cleanliness of the beach area. Extremely satisfying stay!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Really had a hard time leaving this place at the end of my stay! The house itself is bright, open, comfortable, classy and beautifully renovated. The pool at the house is a perfect place for relaxing any time of day. The beach is accross the street, so easy to get there with your chairs and cooler. I especially loved going there first thing in the morning with my cup of coffee, looking for those magical sand dollars along the waters edge. We loved strolling through Charleston, Boone Hall Plantation, Sullivan's Island Farmers Market, watching the fishing boats come in to Shem Creek, and an easy day trip down to Savannah. We had great meals both at the house and out on the town. Highly recommend the Seared Wild Salmon and Short Ribs from The Refuge Restaurant. For a cheap and yummy breakfast, ride your bike over to the Isle of Palms Marina Market for the Breakfast Bowl- eggs, sausage, cheese on grits! Only $5! So many reasons why we will be back again. Great things to do, eat and drink. This house makes for a great base for family gatherings, or for just a quiet relaxing getaway.

Owner's Response: Sarah, I can't tell you how much we love reading such a stellar review. As an owner, the most important thing is knowing our guests enjoy the house as much as we do. You definitely made the most of your time here, as you hit some of the best attractions the Charleston area has to offer. We look forward to see you on the island again real soon. Cheers!

Ooh la la! Beachy Luxury on the Isle of Palms.

  • 5 of 5

I and two girlfriends were the first guests since the renovation. What a pleasure it was to be in this completely redesigned house. Finishes and appliances are top-notch. The whole house is so bright and sunny and is just a short walk from/to the beautiful Isle of Palms beach. The FROG - finished room over the garage - is secluded and very private with it's own bathroom - an excellent choice for a light sleeper. I used the Sonos system and could easily dial up some tunes on the speaker system. We used the gas stove and the coffee-maker, the washer and dryer, the treadmill pool (Nifty!) and were pleased with lovely 12 Abalone Alley. The manager was responsive and easy to work with. I'll be back!

The street has large trees for a beautiful southern feeling to the location. Our weather was perfect in February. Access to the Grand Pavillion and resort amenities are a real bonus. In season there is live music at night on the boardwalk. The resort offers tennis, cycling, etc. Lots of family fun.

We loved the Obstinate Daughter restaurant on Sullivan's Island and Stella's greek restaurant downtown. It's hard to go wrong in the Charleston area. Next time I'll stay longer.
