About the property

Location, Location, Location: Beachside in Private Resort Within Wild Dunes

This incredible and soothing property is one of a kind. Built directly into the beach in a private resort complex within Wild Dunes. At no price point on the island are the views better than this. This sunny and well-kept unit features full and complete beach and ocean views throughout the unit (with minor exceptions - e.g. bathrooms) and from both large lanais (one of which is fully screened-in and features a large high-top table for entertaining).

This beach-side end unit offers something no other unit in Tidewater can offer: direct, complete and immediate views of, and access to, the beach/ocean and pool/children's wade pool. While on the "ground floor" the unit is raised several feet up and built on stilts in the beach, but allows convenient and frequent access to the unit from the pool and beach as a home-base for your outdoor play.

Now, a description of the rooms of this beautiful property. The master bedroom offers a King-size bed and large flat screen television, with en-suite bathroom (shower and tub).

The second bedroom offers a full-size bed, with a television and an en-suite bathroom. The living room also offers a full-size pull-out couch.

The main living area is open-concept to promote socialization. The kitchen is modern and updated with granite counters, microwave, dishwasher, range, refrigerator and freezer (with ice-maker). Blenders, mixers, toaster, pots, pans, silverware, plates cups and everything you will need is there.

Off of the kitchen is a bright and sunny breakfast nook with a large table with seating for 4. Enjoy full ocean and beach views while dining there.

Or...take your meal to the living room and enjoy full ocean and beach views through the picture window. If you so desire, you may turn on the big flat screen located in the living room. There is a table, pull-out couch and two comfortable viewing chairs in the living room.

Or...take your meal outside. Off of the living room is the first of two lanais. This lanai is quite large and screened-in for your enjoyment. While sitting at the large table with ample seating, enjoy the views of the beach and ocean or watch the little ones at the pool or wading pool. With this unit, there is no need for to pack a cooler. You are so close to the pool and beach that you can just use the kitchen refrigerator to keep your food and beverages cold.

Or...take your meal or coffee to the lanai, off of the main entrance. This large lanai is private and gated. It features comfortable reclined seating and the most gorgeous and uninterrupted views available on the island. The pictures simply do not do it justice.

Once you have gotten suitably relaxed from hanging with your family on the beach, perhaps you would like to try your hand at golf or tennis. The Links golf course, which has a driving range, is steps away. You can enjoy a meal or drink at the Sandbar located at the Clubhouse there.

Or you can go up the beach on the other side and find the Boardwalk Hotel, a bevy of bars and restaurants, as well as tennis courts, bicycle rental and the Harbour Golf course and Clubhouse.

Just outside the Wild Dunes gates and around the corner is the Isle of Palms Marina, featuring food, beer, wine, boat and jet ski rentals, Eco-Tours, Parasailing, boat launch, the always popular Morgan Creek Bar and Grill (they usually have a great band outside in the grass), among other amenities.

From this unit, there is some much to do, or nothing at all. Privacy is afforded by the unit's unique location on the very end of the beach-side of the building thus promoting full relaxation and privacy. You are close enough to the main Wild Dunes amenities to enjoy them when you want, but far enough away to keep your vacation relaxing and crowd-free. We simply could not create a better experience for you on the Isle of Palms.

Ocean view from every window!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here just 5 short days and 4 short nights! We missed it the minute we got home. There are gorgeous ocean views from every window. The king size bed in the master is super comfortable. Nicely equipped kitchen. (bring your own salt and pepper) The pool and ocean are super convenient to get to, just step right out the door. A serene, quiet location to relax and enjoy your vacation. The condo was clean. There are no beach towels, so bring your own. (we did) If we weren't at the beach or the pool we were relaxing, lazily in the screened in porch. The condo was nicely equipped with paper towels, toilet paper, hand soap in the bathrooms, paper napkins and, dish soap to get us through the 5 days. We would definitely go back! I loved how we didn't have a list of "chores" to do before we left as some places will have. I would have liked a directory of the area for sight seeing and recommended restaurants in the area. I know we have google on our phones, but sometimes hearing from the locals is best. We wouldn't recommend the Morgan Creek Grill. Even though the view was excellent, the food was mediocre and way overpriced, Acme had delicious food and the atmosphere is casually, casual. Enjoy your stay! We loved the Sea Biscuit for breakfast. NUM! NUM!

Safe, serene, and satisfying

  • 5 of 5

We three retired sisters needed a 3-day getaway and Brett and Julia delivered more than we expected. Adjacent to their condo are both the pool and the beach, with easy access and wonderful views. Noise levels were at a minimum and the condo was clean and equipped with everything that we needed. Any questions that we had were answered quickly. It would be a blessing to return to this happy place some day.

Best Location on IOP

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed here for our annual October beach trip last year and we were blown away by this property. We vacation in this area every year and we have stayed in some amazing homes, but this property had it all. The location was all we could ever ask for, the unit was clean and comfortable, and the views were to die for. The kids really loved having the pool to swim in when it got a bit too windy on the beach. The owner was so kind and easy to work with, too. We have never stayed at the same property twice, but am I dreaming of the time when I can enjoy my coffee and meals on the front porch of this amazing condo again. I truly cannot recommend it enough.

Perfect beach retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Location. Location. Location/view. This was a perfect condo for our family. With three young kids the extremely close proximity to pool and beach was perfect. The views were wonderful too! I could sit in bed and sip my morning coffee and still see the ocean. Wild Dunes offered many additional amenities as well. We will definitely return to this wonderful condo! It was a great place to unplug and unwind. We look forward to enjoying this amazing beach retreat again.

Best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two small kids stayed at this home in June and absolutely loved it. It was my first time in the Charleston area, and after this trip I plan to be back very soon. I have 8-month and 3-year old so the pool and beach access right outside the screened in porch was perfect. This condo had everything we needed for our family. Julia and Brett even had beach chairs and umbrellas, which came in handy with the kids. We loved the place so much we noticed there was opening and stayed an extra day. Thank you so much, hope to be back soon!

We stayed at this lovely condo the week of May 16, 2015. The location is perfect. Only steps to the pool and beach and an ocean view from almost every window. The condo is charming, clean and well equipped. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a getaway. Wish we could have stayed another week or two.

Location, location location. It doesn't get any better than this. The unit is built right into the sand of the beach in a private area of Wild Dunes. You have full views of the beach and ocean from everywhere in the unit (except the bathrooms), including two private, but large, lanais. The pool and wading pool are just steps away and you can watch the little ones swim from one of the large screened-in patios, then turn your head and look at the ocean. Also, of course, full ocean and beach views are enjoyed in, and beside, the pool.

The Unit is located within the Tidewater Village part of Wild Dunes resort. The Links golf course and driving range are walking distance. The Boardwalk hotel, tennis courts and Harbour golf course are just up the street. The marina, marina store, boat/jet ski rentals, Morgan Creek Bar and Grill and more are a short hop away.
