About Julie Byrne

Sharing paradise just around the corner--If anything is needed assistance isn't far away.

Why Julie Byrne chose Charleston Area

We fell in love.....The sanctuary feel is compared to none and the views are incredible. Paradise is indeed found here. We look forward to having you visit.

What makes this cottage unique

So close to the beach/and action of the Village or Boardwalk if you desire--yet feels so private with water views and nature playing out all day long.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Julie's home is lovely and conveniently located to the beach and the heart of Wild Dunes. The wildlife viewing - alligators, turtles, lizards, osprey, egrets, great blue herons - was spectacular! The house was clean, well-equipped, and beautifully decorated for Easter. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

Gators, golfers and good times

  • 5 of 5

Gator Cottage was a great place to settle in at Wild Dunes. Our 5-day stay was so relaxing. The cottage was fully equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The tasteful decor, nice linens and attention to detail were superb! We stayed Easter week and even had elegant Easter egg and bunny decorations to make us feel festive for the holiday. Our host, Julie was available within minutes by text to help with questions and how to find anything we needed at the house. We would recommend to anyone. -- E White, Charlotte, NC

Piece of Heaven/Hit The Spot Food -&- History !! !!

  • 5 of 5

Could noT have asked for a better place to stay with our family of 5 !!! Every WonderfuL DetaiL There As Described ! Such a Big-Clean and Comfortable house !!! We were told this was Isle of Palms/Wild Dunes peak season only to still feel like the area plus the beach were at only a 30 % population. So much freedom to do anything our hearts desired. The ocean was quite scenic. The history of the area & the phenomenal food!!! Julie keep up the good work and thank you for sharing your heavenly establishment !!!

Julie > Thanks Again for a WonderfuL

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Gator Cottage. We didn't really know what to expect when we booked but it ended up being a great pick. It is very comfortable and convenient; only about 10 minutes (walking) from the ocean and pools. The deck overlooks a lagoon where we saw alligators, turtles and herons. Very peaceful. Our extended family had a wonderful time. We hope to be back some day!!

Also, Julie was very helpful and available.

A great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Gator Cottage. Julie, the owner, has done a fantastic job of decorating the house with beautiful and tasteful appointments. She also has it well-stocked with linens, tons of kitchenware, beach towels & chairs, and even turtle food to feed the many turtles that swim in the lagoon that borders the back deck. The Gator Cottage was the perfect spot to unwind, relax, and watch the other lagoon inhabitants - jumping fish, birds, and the alligator, of course! It is located in the Wild Dunes resort, and while the beach and the main resort complex were short walks away, our street was wonderfully quiet. I'm glad that the Gator Cottage served as our home base during our recent visit to Charleston SC and the surrounding areas!

Car: recommended

Located in the heart of fun and good times. Gator Cottage is a 6 minute walk just 2 blocks from the beach. There are bike/walk paths to explore around the resort. There are restaurants and shops in the area along with sports teams seasonally to enjoy. The River Dogs baseball; the Charleston Battery soccer; the Stingrays hockey teams as well as the local college teams. Downtown historic Charleston is a great day trip, you can drive to Patriots Point and even take a water taxi across the harbor for added interest.

Gator Cottage is nestled at the top of a quiet cul-de -sac with the backyard views rivaling National Geographic at times. An open concept home with 180* beautiful views morning afternoon and sunset.
