My name is Peter Cole, and I am the owner’s representative. I went to the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. Presently live in Davidson, just outside of Charlotte, NC. I wear many hats: an oceanfront, resort, rental condo owner; property manager; rental agent; dog tender (That is Mazie in the picture. Spends most of her day on the rug by me at my desk.) and my favorite; loving husband to the beautiful woman in the picture with me. As a Medicare card carrying senior, I look back over a full life. My chosen life ‘occupation’ (my Mother could never bring herself to call it a job) was to take teens on a cross country camping trip; 3000 teens in all, spanning 33 years. My nephew, Doug Gill, slipped into my shoes as I stepped into my retirement. Now he has passed it on to Sassy Smyth. Curious? Do a google search, 'tctw'.
My friends and relatives worried about my having too much time on my hands in retirement so they gave me their resort properties to manage. My reputation as a good manager/agent grew. Now 12 properties fill my stable. It was 1967 when I took ownership of my first rental property. In the years since, I have bought and sold 11. I come to you with a lot of experience. I do not take lightly the importance of your vacation. I want to match your needs with the properties I represent. There are 24 pictures, a video and lots of verbiage. I am here to answer all your questions.

Oceanfront. In a gated, resort community with everything at your finger tips. Charleston just a short drive away.
Fantastic renter. They were so patient during the window replacement. Thank goodness all of that is behind us.
We just returned from a week long stay at this Ocean Club Villa and I must say we miss it already! It was so wonderful to be able to see and hear the ocean from every room in the house practically. The views are absolutely amazing. We enjoyed watching all the ships going in and out of Charleston everyday along with the golfers finishing up on the 18th.
The only negative is the sandbags out in the front of the building but hopefully this will be fixed in the near future. We can't wait to return for another amazing week long family vacation!
After a long long winter, arriving in Wild Dunes to this wonderful condo was a very special treat. The weather and the accommodations could have not been better. The condo had the best views from every room. The balcony overlooking the ocean was so pleasant to sit on to enjoy our coffee and read the paper. We rode bikes and walked the beach. There is some beach erosion but what can you do with Mother Nature. It did not hamper us in the least. I would highly recommend this unit. The manager was a delight to work with. I will be back next year!
I spent the weekend at this fabulous condo with my family. We have stayed at other places in Wild Dunes but this one is by far the best place. We had ocean views from every room. The condo is is neat and clean and beautifully decorated. I read some of the reviews from other renters and decided to try this one. Yes, there is erosion on this end of the beach but that was not a problem for us. There is beach at low and high tides. Let me assure there is also a walkway to get to the beach so the erosion did not affect us at all. I would rent this condo again and hope to do soon in the near future.
This place is the ultimate retreat and my personal escape from the busy world that I have enjoyed visiting for many years. Situated perfectly near the beach's shore, this hidden treasure possess the most amazing views right outside of Charleston, SC. Waking up in this condo I am greeting each day with more than 180degrees of spectacular views from the windows and balcony. Golfers finishing their game on the 18th hole, people strolling down the beach's shore, even dolphins on occasion passing through the ocean waves are just a few of the things I have witnessed from this perch.
What's even better about this particular spot is its accessibility to the beach and the city. This condo isn't located in an obscure side street that is cut off from the beach or road, which is a plus because coming and going is very convenient. The amount of visitors I travel with have varied over the years, but whether i'm there with one person or 7 people, there is plenty of space with this open layout to comfortably spend time there with family and friends. Relaxing at the beach or by the pool during the day is what I love best, and it's nice that neither is a far walk from this unit.
The warm and inviting space of this interior of this unit is also something quite spectacular. The rooms are spacious, each one with access to a balcony and it's own bathroom which is an advantage - especially after a day at the beach! The master bedroom has an unbelievable setup that includes a full sized tub with jets in addition to a shower and plenty of counter space. On occasion, we faced a 'rainy day' during some visits, but I never felt cooped up in this condo...in fact, those days gave me the opportunity to really enjoy the space, relax inside and gaze over the waves from a cozy spot on the couch.
Before finding this condo, we used to stay in hotels or smaller units - a place of this size and quality of amenities has become my new standard for what it means to enjoy
Warning - due to beach erosion there is no beach at high tide. The boardwalk to ocean is closed. You have to walk around a sand bag wall to get to the beach. The next building has very limited space at high tide but the chair service company takes it early each day. The unit is nice.
What a wonderful and relaxing time we had at Wild Dunes and I'm pretty certain living in the lap of luxury at this beautiful condo had a quite a bit to do with it! When you walk in and immediately see the ocean and continue to see it from every square foot (except bath and laundry) the blood pressure does drop a few points! Everthing was fabulous; even the magazines were current!
