About Rita Polzin

We love going to our beach house. We have 5 children from age 13 to 30. Charleston is such a great place to visit.

Rita Polzin purchased this house in 1997

Why Rita Polzin chose Charleston Area

Our home is in a great location for the beach. You also have the croquet court at the back of the house so you have a yard so the kids can run around. The house also is very large and open for cooking and entertaining, so much better than a condo. The three bedrooms also each have full baths with their own jacuzzi tubs. Plenty of parking under the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I just wanted you to know we had a wonderful time in your beautiful beach home. It is so convenient to everything and we loved the spaciousness. Thanks for the well equipped kitchen also. My husband has decided that he loves Charleston and this needs to be our new destination for close vacations.





Again, thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home. We hope to be able to go again next year.

Loved Wild Dunes!

  • 5 of 5

I think this review is for both the wonderful home and Wild Dunes together. Wild Dunes was new to our group, we'd always done Outer banks. My friend that organized the trip just saw that Wild Dunes was voted #3 family vacation destinations! Overall, we definitely rent this house again. The owner was very good on communication and this resort area was simply great.

Wild Dunes:

•Beach was incredible, very clean and wide. Great tidal pools to play in

• The surf was great

• The pool area and grille were very nice and the service was fantastic. Drinks were reasonably priced and quite good.

• We had access to the two pools that border the grille/bar area, smaller pools, about 3-4’ deep.

• The resort was very clean and had great trails that looped the entire area;

• The resort had lots of kid activities

• Isle of Palms-Grocery stores close by and the restaurants were casual and great

• Also, Isle of Palms is so close to Charleston, day or night trips are easy (20 mins). Patriots Point is close by as well. There is an Aircraft Carrier museum there that was fantastic for our crew.

The House

• Big bedrooms and big bathrooms!

• The location was perfect in the resort. The house is on a courtyard which is great for the kids to run around and play ball. I walked the whole resort, and I believe the location of this house is simply one of the best.

• Kitchen and entertainment area: Again, large and spacious. Very nice open floor plan with doors leading to back patio that overlooks the courtyard. We had 8 people, but 10 would have been no problem.

• Garage space. You could easily fit 3-4 cars in the garage if needed. We had more than enough space for all of the bike, stroller, and beach gear we had brought.

• Location was an easy walk right down the path to the pool/beach. There were no roads or parking areas to cross. Very safe for the kids.

• Overall the house was very clean.

Negatives-The top floor could use some new paint. Bring your own cutting board if you are a gourmet wannabe. Check with the owner on the sports pass regarding the new pool that opens in Fall of '12. Ideally we would have liked to have seen duobunks in another room. 2 Coffee machines would have been good.

But.....this is a beach house, and it was a great beach house!

I would stay here again without a doubt.

happy family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be perfect for our family's needs. The rooms are spacious and the location is ideal. The house has a nice open floor plan, with a kitchen equipped to make plenty of meals. The house is clean. The bathrooms are huge. it is just a short walk to the beach, pools, restaurants and tennis courts. Our family had a great time and made lots of happy memories.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

My family so very much enjoyed this beautiful beachfront home. When we arrived the house was spotless, the owners are very accomadating. The location is nothing short of perfect. Steps from the beach with resort amenities. Spacious, filled with many little details that made our stay very "homey". Lots of parking space, The sound of the ocean at night was enchanting. Huge kitchen, open living space, tubs so big you can almost swim in them. Ocean view from the top balcony. Boardwalk Inn accessible pools, food, cocktails, if we didnt feel like cooking we just walked acorss the lawn to the Inn. Beds were very comfy, house is well appointed with everything you need to make your vacation perfect. Wifi, the pictures do not do this property justice. Outdoor shower was very helpful cleaning off the sand after a day at the beach. Weather was perfect, We road our bikes daily on the great paths in WIld Dunes. We felt very safe and secure in the area. Huge fridge, updated kitchen. Morgan Creek grill a 5 min. drive was fantastic view and great food. Concierge at the Boardwalk Inn is very helpful in arranging tourist activities. This house has been lovingly cared for by the owners, you wont be disappointed!

Family Vacation Disaster

  • 2 of 5

Upon arrival, it was noted that the exterior of the house could have used a fresh coat of paint particularly on the white railings. The interior of the house was fairly clean; however, the walls needed painted and the family room furniture was dirty. The kitchen and the family room rugs were very dirty. We were also greeted by a very large live roach on the wall of the master bedroom.

The kitchen was poorly furnished with only one dishtowel, one dishcloth, very few glasses, and worn-out pots and pans. The downstairs of the house would only cool to 72 to 76 degrees during the day and that was if we kept the lights off and the blinds closed. If the lights were on, or the blinds were open, the downstairs was hot. We spent most of the week without lights downstairs in an effort to keep the area cool.

We accidently damaged the stovetop by breaking the ceramic glasstop. Unfortunately, the owners do not have damage insurance to cover accidents such as this as reported by the owner herself. Please be aware of this fact when renting this house. The owner had not asked for a security deposit and we were required to pay $2000.00 for a new stovetop even though the existing stovetop was scratched and in poor condition.

The house did have some positive attributes. The house was in a great location and the beach was very nice and clean. The pools to which we had access were also very nice. The bike rental shop was very close to the house and the children really enjoyed riding their bikes on the bike paths in the area. The food at the pool was good and we enjoyed spending the evening at the pool. There was a nice shower in the basement of the house which was very convenient to use when coming in from the beach.

The listing photos did accurately reflect the rental's appearance. We would not recommend this rental to a friend or a relative.

Owner's Response: I have owned our home and been renting for 13 years and have many happy vistors that come every year. When the guest who made the comment first arrived at my home they called and mentioned (not very nice) that the air didn't seem to be cool enough. Within 5 minutes of their phone call I had called my HVAC repairman and realized that the regular houskeepers had already called him about the probelm and that it had been fixed at 3:00 before they arrived. I told him that it may take overnight for it to cool down since it had been 94 degrees that day. I told him that if it did not cool down my Monday AM (July 4) to please call me again. I never heard anything more about the air but guest did call me back Monday morning to tell me his wife had set a bag of ice on my 5 year old downdraft cooktop and busted it... He said he would text me pictures and be happy to take care of the damage. I asked him if the air was ok and he said it was fine. In fact the person who came to the house to measure and replace the cooktop was the HVAC man who also checked the temperture in the house and it was at 72 degrees. The following day I found a replacement cooktop and called the guest and at that point he was not very nice, telling me my insurance should cover his damage. I explained to him that my insurance would cover damages that I made but not something that he had done. This is standard in most inusrance policies. Eventually he did the right thing by reimburising me for part of the cooktop and installation cost. I guess by him doing the right thing and paying for his damages he decided to be upset and try to say things that are unture about our home. If he would have had a problem with cleaning he should have called me about it and at least given me the opportunity to make him happy. The pictures of our home are current, just made a couple months ago. Yes during the summer touch up paint in required by the end of the summer but this certainly didn't effect his vacation. I had just been at my house 2 weeks before and know that many things he said in his comment just aren't true. Our home is a great place to vacation. I'm sorry that some people use these responses just because they are upset for having to do the right thing. Also anyone that rents from me always has my cel phone for any issue that may come up...
