Ideal waterfront vacation rental
This was our 8th Charleston rental on one of the perimeter islands in the last decade. Coming from Long Island, NY & now residing in the western mountains of NC, this affords us our annual 'beach fix". Since we were vacationing with another couple & there were no children, Wild Dunes was very appealing. The resort is impeccably clean, has a layout conducive to walking or bicycling, is beautifully landscaped & has a high caliber of accommodations. The area met & exceeded our expectations.....including the number of golf balls lost in the water hazards on the "Harbor Course".
The 31 Beach Villa ocean view is awesome. It is but a brief walk to the beach & the environs are quiet & private. The rooms were clean & as pictured in the website.
We are seasoned VRBO renters. Details we appreciate are: kitchen well stocked for meal preparation;
furniture comfortable; rooms sunny, airy, modern & nicely decorated; no offensive premises' odors;
close-by parking; supportive,comfortable bedding; nice linens=down comforters, many pillows, extra blankets, & many thick towels; plenty of toilet paper, soaps, detergents, etc. for our week stay;
excellent TVs w cable service; all well functioning appliances; dual zone AC/heat (one for each floor).
both iPad & Kindle compatible with villa's WiFi.
Our few minor criticisms are echoes from the previous reviewer & as said before, should not discourage anyone from renting this unit. The misalignment of the upper master bedroom sliding door
does create a gap. It allows heat into the room during the day & the ocean breezes to 'whistle' through
the room at night...unique 'white noise'. (weatherstripping=fix). And while the bathrooms are 'dated', they were not objectionable except for the awful shower-heads in the 'king' bathrooms. One erratically sprays water & the other pulsed so strongly it felt as if you were under a dental Waterpik spigot. Both could, no make that should, be easily replaced.
Again, minor complaints....this is a wonderfully sited & appointed rental.
We recommend all of Charleston....despite so many re-visits, we still love the area...its history, buildings & gardens. We strongly recommend our new 'find', the Five Loaves cafe in Mt Pleasant.
Hard to find, it's tucked in the corner of CrickenTree Village shopping center (#1055 rt.17)=unique cuisine, very reasonable $ = worth trip.
We thoroughly enjoyed Charleston & coming home to the villa & have no reservations about returning & re-renting it in the near future.
