The Ocean Club Complex is considered to be the best oceanfront condos at Wild Dunes. Ours is the best of the best because of its placement in the building.
Picture in your mind a virtual stage. The image I will present is important because it illustrates how we define ‘oceanfront’, and how our meaning may be different from others. As you are entering our villa - translated expensive condo - from a large outside hallway, the ocean is not yet a part of the panorama because it is hidden from view on the back side of the building. You walk into a foyer and turn right down a hallway, and as you are walking you see a mother and her ten year old daughter approaching. The hall opens up into the dining/living room area, and one wall suddenly turns into floor to ceiling windows. The glass vista of the ocean continues approximately 30 feet down the whole side of the villa, and as you turn onto another angle, the view continues for another 20 feet. The entire building angles toward the beach and is strategically located so that from all the windows you see swelling waves and pristine beach. To conclude the virtual tale, as the mother and daughter enter the room, the little girl slowly looks around, then turns to her mother and says, “Momma, are we on a boat?”
Let there be no doubt - if you are looking for an ocean front view, there is no comparison between our villa and others that are available. There is an ocean front view from the dining/living room and ALL three of the bedrooms. The only rooms in this huge villa (2300+ square feet, 9 foot ceilings) without the view are the laundry room and half bath. There are additional interesting items concerning this rental that I will furnish you when you email me for additional information. There are twenty-four pictures on the website. The max allowed by VRBO. VERY IMPORTANT! CLICK ON VIDEO ABOVE FIRST PICTURE. It helps to link together all the still pictures. As they say ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. The frosting on the cake is the extensive balconies that come off the three bedrooms and living/dining room highlighted with brand new high quality furniture. Heaven should be so nice.
I will be providing you with other links to about ten properties in Ocean Club. It is a complex consisting of two buildings each containing 51 villas. The property sites I’m sending you all have owners that are a little better about ‘meat and potatoes’ than I. Please check their rental rate so you can see how ours compares favorably. Visiting these other sites will be very helpful in your understanding of the Ocean Club/Wild Dunes properties in particular and Charleston in general. There is a lot of information available to those interested in this beautiful area of South Carolina beaches. However, it is most important that you try and picture their view of the ocean in comparison to ours. All of the villas have similar floor plans, furnished as you would expect luxury villas should be. We offer the one big differences - our location maximizes the view of the ocean.
Two other factors to consider in our rental are housekeeping and maintenance. We are fortunate to have two of the best. Maintenance is available to you 24/7. We will provide you with the phone number. Should anything not work properly, call. In the unlikely event you are not pleased with the cleanliness of the villa when you arrive, call housekeeping to come back in and clean it to your satisfaction. We will provide you with that number as well. There is a lot of additional information to email so you can make absolutely certain we will meet your needs. Moving to the next step is easy. Fill out the adjacent form. As you well know planning the perfect vacation takes good research. You can always rest when you get here. Check the calendar to see about availability for the dates you want and carefully read about the rental rates. The rates are current and are not subject change upward.
HIGHLIGHTS IN REVIEW: 1) If you are requesting a lower price than our posted rate, then we need the web link to the lower priced one you are considering. 2) Check calendar for availability before submitting an inquiry. 3) Review the 24 pictures and video. 4) Read comments by past guests. 5) Thank you so much for considering our place.
I usually respond to an inquiry within 24 hours of receipt. If you haven't heard from me within that frame period, check the calendar for availability. I usually don't respond if we don't have availability. Next try your spam. Sometimes I get caught there. Last but not least call me at 704-896-1995 (Peter)
ONCE YOU SUBMIT AN INQUIRY, YOUR FIRST COMMUNICATION WILL COME FROM VRBO/HOMEAWAY. VERY IMPORTANT TO READ IT CAREFULLY ESPECIALLY IN REGARD TO SECURITY.
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.
Peter Cole purchased this villa in 1990
Oceanfront. Located in the gated, Resort Community of Wild Dunes with many activities at your finger tip. A short drive to Charleston.
This will certainly not come as a surprise to you: an owner and/or property manager is going to put their best foot forward as they embellish their property to you. Take all that is said by them and me with a 'grain of salt', especially me. I have BS down to a science!
Put much weight on what past renters have to say. With no axes to grind you can usually expect them to shoot straight with you. They are not trying to get in your pocketbook/wallet.
We hope you will come see for yourself how right we all were!
The view is absolutely gorgeous! Dinner felt like a dining room on a cruise ship. The villa was very well appointed, from comfy furnishings to the best equipped kitchen we've ever experienced in a rental. We're signed up for next year.
This property is the best beachfront condo we have ever rented. It is clean, well funished and appointed with great attention to detail and very very comfortable. The ocean views are as good as it gets.
There was plenty of room for everyone in our party and the deck was a great gathering place.
You cannot get more oceanfront than this condo! Our family spent Christmas here, each morning watching the most amazing sunrise from each bedroom. It was truly heaven on earth. The condo far surpassed our expectations with beautifully decorated rooms and amenities, and as a chef I found everything I needed to cook all the meals my family enjoyed. You'll feel like you are at the end of the most beautiful earth and don't miss the chance to collect seashells at low tide--a must! Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise with us...we'll be back for years to come.
Unit is an excellent location on the top floor with a panoramic view with excellent views looking down the beach as well as views looking down the 18th fairway of the Wild Dunes Ocean/Links Course. Unit was well appointed in terms of types of seating, adequate glassware and dishes and wonderful linens on the bed. As any beach property that faces the sun, there is some fading, but a terrific location. Felt very private since you are at the tip of Wild Dunes.
My husband and I spent a week at this property in October 2011, and it was absolutely wonderful. The location of the villa is ideal with spectacular views of the ocean, golf course and Dewees Island. It is truly a panoramic vista. When we sat at the dining room table, it felt as if we were on a ship at sea. The villa is decorated perfectly - very tasteful, with everything you could possibly need. We used the kitchen extensively, and found it very well equipped. We are already looking forward to a return trip. This is truly paradise. Last but not least was our interface with the property manager. I found him to be very knowledgable, cooperative and easy to work with. He went out of his way to ensure our vacation was enjoyable. Excellent experience in every way.
Northern-most point of Sullivan Island in the Gated Community of Wild Dunes Resort. Allows for a 270 degree of water view starting with the ocean to your right and moving around to the sound to your left. Tired of looking at water there is always the 18th green of the world famous Links Golf Course. Ocean Club is itself a gated community within a gated community. If your desire is to be at the beach, if you want to know it will be there right in front of you, all around you, 24/7, then this is the location for you. You can eat out at some of the finest restaurants in the South, play golf, or tour Fort Fisher. But in the end it is all about the beach and one’s love for the ocean. The South has two major cities that reek of culture, the arts & history: Savannah and Charleston. It never ceases to amaze me you can have the beach and Charleston at the same time...two very different worlds, 25 minutes apart. They say Heaven is going to be a pretty nice place; I say it has competition
Golf: The Links Golf Course is but a heartbeat away. Watch golfers putt on the 18th green from your balcony or yell up to your spouse to hand you down your first cocktail of the afternoon. There is a lot of additional information to email you so you can make absolutely certain we will meet your needs. Moving to the next step is easy. Fill out the form upper right hand corner. All you need to do at this stage in the process is to put down the required information. Check the calendar to see about availability for the dates you want and carefully read about the rental rates. The rates are current......Thank you so much for showing an interest. I am looking forward to working with you as you search for the perfect place to meet your vacation needs.
