Nice condo

  • 4 of 5

Overall the condo was nice and had updates throughout. For as much as we were there, which wasn't much it had pretty much everything we needed. One reviewer mentioned the bed was really comfortable, but did not mention the bed is extremely FIRM. If you like a firm bed, that's fine but I much prefer a softer bed, so in my opinion the bed was not very comfortable. Also, whoever cleaned before we got there did not do a great job. It seemed like a quick sweep over rather than a deep clean. The sink faucet had mold and the bathtub tiles also could have been cleaned better as well. This is not a condo problem, but a cleaning company problem. Another reviewer mentioned the kitchen was dim, which I would have to agree with. Lastly the upstairs got extremely hot. It was ridiculously hot this week (high 90's) so that did not help. Luckily there was a ceiling fan and standing fan we could use. I do have to say he owners were excellent and very kind! They called the first night to make sure we got in okay. The condo also had some beach chairs, which was really nice!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We enjoyed having you as a guest and hope you will come back again. For next time, PLEASE let me know right away when we call to ensure that you got in ok if there is something that is not quite right. My cleaning crew takes great pride in their work and would not hesitate to come back and fix anything they may have missed. Thank you again.

Great Location in Wild Dunes

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our family in Wild Dunes! The villa had everything we needed and was a short walk to both the pool and the beach. The owners, John and Lisa, provided so many recommendations for things to do and places to eat, so it was easy to make plans and enjoy.

Beautiful place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 kids (ages 5 & 2.) We had never been to the area before, and we loved it! Mariners Walk is a fantastic location because the beach is steps away. The beach was never overly crowded, and my kids spent hours out there. The swimming pool is also wonderful, and so warm! We spent a lot of time in there. The baby pool was especially nice for my 2 year old. 9B we thought was the best location because it's right in front of the pool gate, and the kids and us could run in and out to get pool toys, etc. Downtown Charleston was not a far drive away, and we went to the aquarium and spent some time there as well.

We would definitely visit again and would rent the same condo. The King bed is so comfortable. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us. We loved having our own kitchen, screened in porch and laundry area. Lisa is also very easy to work with and super nice. We will stay again! Thanks for everything!

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have rented the condo for the last three years staying two weeks. We love it so much we are coming back again next year The condo is beautiful and updated with new appliances and furniture since last year. In the rare instance there is a question, John and Lisa respond immediately. Such nice people. The pool is right outside out back door and the beach not much farther. Mariners Way is quiet and peaceful just the way we like enjoying our vacation time. Lots of activities to do and only 20 minutes from downtown Charleston which we also love. Excellent spot to rent.
