Beach Chair/Umbrella rentals are available, but typically 4 folding beach chairs with cart are provided in the condo. Entrance is by door code so no one has to carry a key. There's a collection of movies, books, and several throws to make you feel at home. The king beds have quilts and comforters. Plenty of closet space in each room and the master room closets are open for your use.

Wyndham Vacation Rentals are located on the island and they will provide you a rental package, collect payment(s), and are available during your visit should you have any questions or issues. Plus, you can always call or text me during your stay. Besides being an incredible location and every year I have made big improvements to this condo and I enjoy staying there myself! It's always sad to leave. I hope you enjoy it as my family and I do and any feedback is appreciated.

Call Owner or email.

Nearest Airport

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.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: 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! If our unit appears to be booked during the period you are looking to vacation, ask about our recently (May 2016) purchased condo directly next door - Unit 402. We have been updating the furniture, appliances, and décor. The other condo, Unit 402, is a four bedroom, four bathroom and currently sleeps 8 with 2 King and 2 Queen Beds.

Why Wild Dunes, Isle of Palms, SC, USA:
Summer House is a favorite along the beach front. It has a rubberized coating on the building, rust free and looks new and clean. The regime board members keep the facility looking its best with routine maintenance, including glass windows and balcony doors replacement in 2014. Outdoor carpet was installed 2016 on the balcony entrance.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location, location, location! Full Beach Renourishment was completed in 2008 by the Corp of Engineers, which basically moved ocean floor sand to rebuild the beach. Since then, we’ve had a full beach in front Summerhouse villas. Wild Dunes with the City of Isle of Palms will continue beach restoration during the off-season by moving sandbar sand at low tide to restore the beach south and north of Summerhouse. During this time, there is a possibility of equipment activity. It's fascinating to watch and you are still allowed on the beach during this activity. 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.
