Hello, Hello, Hello!!

Summer House 401 is a very private, spacious, Isle of Palms vacation beach home rental.

Convenient for beach access and high enough for spectacular views. The oceanfront balcony runs the entire width of the unit and has access from the large open living area as well as two of the three bedrooms. Includes a dining room, pantry and dinette in the kitchen, laundry room with washer and dryer, cable TV, high speed internet access and more. Private, residents only swimming pool with spacious sundeck. The pool deck was refinished in 2017 with new pool furniture. Convenient elevator access from parking area below.

About Julie Wallen

We have been vacationing at Summer House since our honeymoon in May 1988. We feel lucky to have purchased the end unit closest to the beach and we enjoy this location even more than ever!

Julie Wallen purchased this condo in 2012

Why Julie Wallen chose Charleston Area

Summer House is a favorite along the beach front. With rubberized coating on the building being rust free, routine maintenance, and every year a major facility improvement is completed. Just this year the pool deck and furniture is new! Beautiful!

The elevator is just outside our front door. Carts to move suitcases and groceries are available.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location!

Full beach in front of Summerhouse villas. Wild Dunes with the City of Isle of Palms continue beach restoration! We have been lucky and have had a full beach in front of Summerhouse, since 2008! At the end of the isle, north of Summerhouse, they have sea-walls to maintain the sand near their buildings.

For those with elderly parents, it’s a short walk on sand to the ocean but it is flat, packed sand and mostly easy to walk on. At low tide the beach is so easy to walk on that you can walk to the bay side end or walk south the length of the island. Bike riding at low-tide is common and fun.

If you’re bringing an elderly loved one or someone with walking difficulties, consider renting a beach-accessible wheelchair. There are two local places, but you may want to rent in advance of your stay for availability.

Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family and I needed a place that was comfortable for a family with a small child. The accommodations were so welcoming that I would highly recommend this to someone looking for a place to stay. The view can't be beat.

Great views!

  • 4 of 5

Even though we were there during all the rains, we enjoyed our time. This condo was very comfortable and has a great view of the ocean. My only complaint is that we were not able to access the DVD player. We could not find any instructions. This would have been nice due to the fact we were pretty well stranded in the condo. However, other than that all went well. Will definitely consider this condo for next year.

Had a great time! The walk to the beach was so convenient.

Beautiful views, great weather, and the little ones loved it.

The place is very comfortable and well equipped for cooking and lazing around..

Sunsets and sunrise were gorgeous.

Oceanfront 3BR Summerhouse

  • 5 of 5

When you live in Charleston, it is hard to decide where to take a vacation. We find that the best thing for us is to take a ‘stay-cation.’ We love coming over and over to 401 Summerhouse. You are greeted with gorgeous ocean views the minute you open the door. This spacious condo offers 2 oceanfront bedrooms with private baths and a large 3rd bedroom with 2 double beds and can comfortably accommodate 4 adults and 4 children. There is plenty of room for each of us to have our own space and everything is high-end and well appointed. The balcony is spacious and the perfect place to relax with a book and enjoy the sea breeze. Very well stocked kitchen and more! Easy beach and pool access. Excellent location, both within the resort itself and still close to downtown Charleston.

Summer House 3 bedroom

  • 5 of 5

I rented this unit with my husband, our 3 children, my cousin, her husband and their daughter. Each couple had their own beach front room and all 4 kids comfortably fit in the 2 full beds in the back bedroom. All 3 bedrooms had their own full bathroom which was a plus with that many people under one roof. The showers have good water pressure and drained great. The closets were a good size and we were able to unpack everything without having to live out of suitcases for the week. The furniture was up to date and comfortable. The eat in kitchen was a good size. Everything we needed for cooking and dining in was available in the cabinets and drawers. There is a good size pantry available inside the kitchen that is available so that you do not have all of your stuff all over the counters during your stay. We have rented other units in this building over the years and this unit did not feel like a "rental", it felt like being at home. We look forward to renting this unit in the future.

Nearest Airport
25 Miles

Within the gated Wild Dunes resort and only steps from the pool and pristine beach, Summer House 401 is a luxury condominium that offers spectacular sunrise and ocean views. Wake up to the sound of the ocean and walk the beach in the early morning with camera in hand. Look for shells, sand dollars, conches, starfish, bottlenose dolphins, pelicans, egrets, herons, crabs, and more!

Summer House is walking distance to the popular Grand Pavilion, where there are tennis courts, bicycle rentals, golf courses, shops, and resort activities. Wild Dunes is family friendly and only a 15 minute drive across the Copper River Bridge to the historic downtown Charleston.

The condo is beautifully decorated with coastal-style furnishings and we stay there often ourselves. We are relatively new owners (June 2012) and with each stay we update the condo. May 2014, premium carpet was installed in rooms and living area; and new balcony carpet. There is wireless high-speed internet; four (4) flat screen TVs with Blu-ray players; Comcast premium channels; comfortable couches & cozy chairs with light blankets to cuddle-up for a good movie after beach hours!

BEDROOMS - The three bedrooms each have their own bathroom and TV/video players. Two bedrooms have King beds, sliding glass doors to the balcony, windows with ocean views and bright early morning sun, but also blackout curtains! The third room has two (2) Full beds, add’l VHS player with children’s video library. Extra sleeping: couch is a pull-out Queen bed (comfortable too!) and a bench with a pull-out twin bed. All bedroom closets are available for your use. Sealy pillowtop mattresses with quality protector pads; plenty of pillows; a portable fan; all linens and towels are provided.

BALCONY – If not on the beach, our favorite place is the balcony. It overlooks the ocean and you can see up and down the beach. It can be accessed through the living room and master bedrooms. Watch the dolphins, boats, and children playing on the beach. Relax with a good book and when you see high tide, you know it’s time to get out for body surfing.

KITCHEN - The clean, white kitchen is fully equipped and ready to entertain. It's open to the dining room table and living room.

WASHER/DRYER – New! May 2014

The condo will be professionally cleaned prior to your arrival. Check-in time is 4 PM and check-out is 10 AM. No pets or smoking allowed. If needed, 24 hour emergency help from our management company is a phone call away.
