Overview

About the property

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 inlet 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.

Beautiful place to relax with the family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a fantastic week together at the beautiful Marsh House and loved the accommodations and location of this peaceful place! We were surrounded by gorgeous views and enjoyed watching for wildlife from the amazing porch... on one of our returns from the private beach, we were even greeted in the driveway by two baby deer exploring with their moms...so sweet!! The owners, Gene and Cindy, were so easy to reach by phone for questions during our stay and everything we needed during the week was provided. The kids are already asking when we can go back for another stay!!

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Marsh House. The house is just as described. It was immaculate with beautiful views. The kitchen was well appointed and the family room was very comfortable. We used the bikes (we liked to ride our bikes to see the turtles and alligator in the pond in the middle of the island) and beach accessories supplied everyday. Getting to the beach was easy, we usually drove and parked across from the Wild Dunes Resort. We found we didn't need the resort card. Parking was always available. The beach is fantastic on IOP. Other days we sea kayaked, rented a boat and toured around Charleston Harbor and of course we spent some time in Charleston. Lots of things to do. A few of our favorite restaurants were the Obstinate Daughter on Sullivan Island, The Boat House, and the Peninsula Grill (Charleston). After a day at the beach it was fun to come back to the house and use the outdoor shower. Later in the evening we would watch movies on the projection TV that came down from the ceiling. Can't wait to return.

Fabulous vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved are week family vacation at this beautiful home. Location was perfect,. It was secluded, yet close to the beach, resort, restaurants, and Charleston. The home was immaculate and the rooms were spacious with breathtaking views. The porch with the rocking chairs was so relaxing. We would come back in a heart beat!

Best marsh view in the Wild Dunes!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. The view of the marsh was spectacular and the photos simply don't describe the view. The house is very clean, well organized, modern design, spacious, well stocked, and offer a lot of privacy. Very close to tennis center and beach area by bike or car.

I would love to return soon. I can see myself living here.....

Thank you, Cindy and Gene.

Marsh House was great!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great time at the Marsh House:):) House was nice, clean, and very well furnished.

Great location with beautiful views. The enclosed porch/patio was great place for wine at sunset and dinner to follow. We were family of 5 and really enjoyed having 5 bicycles. Rode them to the beach on a beautiful day. Highly recommend giving the Marsh House a try

My mom and husband spent a wonderful week in this lovely home. There is not enough praise we could give to the peaceful loving place. We had wonderful walks on the beach and loved rocking on porch while the sun set. There is a wonderful since if peace. We found staying in Marsh house was a blessing to all of us.

Thanks Cappy Sanders
