Beachy, fresh, relaxing, fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

The property was stunning! It was just the right size for my family of four. The walk to the beach was not much more than the walk if you were staying in an oceanfront condo with a boardwalk over the dunes. The beach was not crowded when we were there and it was well manicured and nicely taken care of. The property had everything we needed for a wonderful family vacation. The bed in the master bedroom was only a double. It ended up working out okay, but it was a bit of a tighter fit than we're used to.

Beautiful property, close access to a remote beach, and lots of privacy!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this setting. The house was located just a few steps from a walking path that provided access to one of the least crowded beaches I've been on along the east coast. I loved the fresh, beach inspired decorations in the house. The master bed was a bit small, but it worked out just fine. All in all, this was one of my favorite family settings along the Atlantic.

Fantastic Home in Wild Dunes

  • 5 of 5

Our family was so impressed with the vacation home from the beachy decor to the cleanliness. The attention to detail was evident throughout the property, from anything one would need in the kitchen (and more!) to the on deck bbq and screened in dining/seating area. Everyone agreed the beds were extremely comfortable. All televisions, flat screens in all three bedrooms and living room with DVDs (cable with seemed like endless movie channels), wifi and every appliance worked flawlessly. Beach chairs for entire family were provided for the short walk to beach with outdoor shower to rinse salt water when we got back. I called Beachside Vacations to inform them the living room DVD wasn't working and 2 hours later a new DVD was delivered!! Can't wait to return to 23 Sandcrab !!!!

Great beach home in Wild Dunes

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed staying at this wonderful property. A short-walk to the beach, a beautiful screened-in porch, comfortable furnishings and a well-stocked kitchen made this the ideal spot for our fall get away at the Isle of Palms. We will book this place again.
