Overview

Charleston Area House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Come and relax in the tranquility of nature in this unique home perched on edge of the salt marsh on the back side of Wild Dunes. Dramatic, open architecture, with sweeping marsh views, looking out to Dewees inlet. Have morning coffee in the porch rockers, walk 15 minutes to a beautiful, uncrowded beach, take a ride around the island on one of our 5 bicycles, or enjoy all the golf, tennis and swimming that Wild Dunes has to offer. Spend your afternoon relaxing with a book in the hammock or one of the comfy window seats, or take a glass of wine to the porch rockers and watch the afternoon clouds move over the marsh. When dinner time rolls around, create your own low country cuisine in our fully equipped kitchen -- or venture out to Charleston, Mount Pleasant or Sullivan's Island to one of the many amazing area restaurants.

Unique features of this home include the 14 rocking chairs, distinctive post-and-beam architecture, gourmet kitchen, 3,000 sq. ft. open floor plan, elevator and 90-inch Mitsubishi front projection HDTV (but most of all THE VIEW!)

Perfect for six people and will work for eight (three bedrooms with queen-size beds, plus an extra 'half bedroom' with double-size bed). Two full baths and one large powder room, plus outdoor hotwater shower. High quality linens. Master bedroom has 32-inch Sony LCD HDTV and private balcony with two rockers. High speed wireless internet access via cable modem at no charge.

Hardwood floors throughout. Granite in kitchen and baths. Cathedral ceilings in loft and master bedroom. Fully-equipped kitchen with two ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerator, recipe books, etc. Screen porch with four rockers and sofa. Covered porch with four rockers and dining for for six. Living room with large sofa and four swivel rockers, ideal for viewing marsh or 90-inch front projection HDTV. Laundry room with washer and dryer. Sports Card for access to Wild Dunes fitness, golf, swimming and tennis facilities (though you pay activity fees).

One of the most outstanding features of this home is the architecture. Designed by Peter Bohlin, recipient of the 2010 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal and designer of the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in NYC, it feels spacious and expansive with dramatic angles, striking architectural features -- and huge windows that make you feel as though your are in the midst of nature, not looking out at it. Photos and words don't do it justice -- you just have to experience it!

Weekly rentals are accepted on a Sunday to Sunday basis. Not suitable for children under the age of eight due to open balconies, elevator, unlocked cabinets, etc. No pets, no parties, no smoking.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5, 2 adults and 3 children( ages 10-15), stayed here for a week after Christmas. The location is great, in the resort of Wild Dunes but about 25 minutes drive to Charleston.The house is spacious, clean, with lovely decor, the photos are accurate. It was very quiet at night and beds were comfortable.

We made use of the bikes provided and enjoyed the trails throughout the resort. We walked to the private beach a few times. One of the highlights of our trip was seeing some dolphins very close to the shore and my daughter finding a perfect sand dollar. We drove into the beautiful city of Charleston a few times and visited a plantation. We also enjoyed being close to Sullivan's Island for dinner at Salt and Poe's Tavern. We'd love to visit again when the weather is warmer to fully take advantage of the beach, the porches/deck around the house and the resort amenities.

The owners were easy to deal with and responded promptly to all inquiries.

We would highly recommend this property.

The Schumakers from Wisconsin

  • 5 of 5

WOW!!! What a house!!! If you want quiet, gorgeous views (we even saw deer walking through the swamp at low tide),privacy and a phenomenal kitchen in which to prepare food.....this is the house for you! Beach access to an almost private beach is very convenient and provides one the ocean without the crowds! You would never believe you are in a crowded resort area; yet you have the ability to enjoy the resort amenities. It was for us the perfect balance of relaxation and activity. We are very sad that we are so far away!

Beautiful Home in Wild Dunes

  • 5 of 5

The Marsh House is a beautiful home that has obviously been well-maintained. The house is located in a very private setting on the end of a quiet cul-de-sac facing a marsh.

The house is elegantly decorated and has high-end appliances in the kitchen, very comfortable beds and nice linens, and spacious bathrooms and closets.

Isle of Palms has terrific beaches that are ideal for swimming and for just relaxing or sunbathing. Although the weather is extremely hot and humid in August, there was always a breeze on the beach that made it tolerable to be in the sun or under an umbrella on the beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

A fabulous retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Marsh House was a fabulous retreat from the noise and crowds of the beach. Mornings started with breakfast on the deck overlooking the marsh, listening to birds and wind and water, watching for wildlife. Follow that with a wonderful walk on the boardwalk and beach, or a bike ride (bikes are provided!). The house is beautiful, and excellently equipped. Lots of soft sheets and towels, plenty of cookware, even paper products. Gene and Cindy were a pleasure to work with, even providing extensive notes on things to do, how to work appliances, even recipes! Definitely a step above other rentals.
