About the property

Cottage available

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom- Open Plan With Great Common Space-Close To Resort & Beach

Beautiful home- remodeling completed on 2/2/14. This home was completely redone and is basically a new home. Completely new kitchen- cabinets, subway tile backsplash, quartz countertops and high end stainless appliances. All new bathrooms (toilets, showers/tubs, cabinets) with penny round floor tiles and glass enclosures. All doors, windows and trim were replaced. New metal roof, HVAC system high efficiency tank-less water heater. New hardwood floors everywhere but the bathrooms. Inside and outside of the home was completely repainted. The moment you walk in this home you will notice that the finishes are upgraded and high quality- not the builder grade that you get with many other rentals.

The home is 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom and about 1,700 square feet- all on one level. There is a large eating area/table as well as room for eating for two at the kitchen bar. There is a family room with large flat screen HDTV as well a sunroom we added with another HDTV, couched and table for playing the many board games we provide. There is also a nice sun porch off of the sunroom.

Bedroom configuration: Master bedroom has King bed, large closet, own bathroom with shower as well as LED TV.

Second bedroom has a queen sized bedroom, large closet and share second bathroom with third bedroom.

Third bedroom has two twin beds and shares the third bathroom which has a tub/shower, toilet and vanity.

What is included: our rate includes the home being cleaned prior to your arrival and after your departure, all linens, towels (beach and bath), a generous supply of paper products and cleaning products as well as wireless internet and cable TV. The home has every small appliance and pot/pan you will need as well as plates, glasses and cutlery from Crate and Barrel. We also provide the Wild Dunes Sportscard which will give you access to many of the amenities at the resort however there are often additional fees associated with using these amenities...the Sportscard simply allows you access.

The home has easy access to the beach and is just over a block away while the swim center and resort are only 50-100 yards away.

FYI: There is a cleaning fee of $75 and property damage protection insurance policy required for $59 for all rentals.

If you have stayed with us in the past, THE GOLF CART IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR GUEST USE.

Open and Airy, Updated, Private home close to beach

  • 4 of 5

Girls trip! There were 5 adults and a baby and this house has plenty of space for everyone. The master bedroom is light and bright, the queen bedroom could use an extra surface to set things on such as a dresser, but it was comfortable and colorful, twin room has two twin bunk sets. The house is updated and has nice furniture, updated appliances, and good lighting; minor issue is no cutting board, but not a big deal.

The beach equipment was there, but was not in the best shape; could use some new chairs and boogie boards, but it was nice to have it available. Plenty of beach towels, which is key when renting a place next to the beach.

Unfortunately the outdoor grill was out of commission, but we let them know. The outdoor patio had a table and 4 chairs, not a lot of space, but it was so hot, we didn't sit out there anyway. AC works really well!!

Getting in and out of Wild Dunes was really easy with the car pass that was ready upon our arrival. We had about a 10-minute walk to the beach from the house, which passed by the pool so we had a nice time with that amenity.

Joe responded promptly to any questions I had. I'd come back to this home anytime!

Bad start....good finish"

  • 4 of 5

We booked this cottage because of the great reviews. Our trip started poorly because we arrived to the cottage with it not cleaned, filled with linens and towels throughout and the trash overflowing. We were told to arrive after 3:00 and we actually arrived at 3:45 with our plan to unpack, shower and head to dinner at 7:30. We called Joe and left a voicemail. He called back within 30 minutes and apologized and was trying to get a hold of cleaning service. 20 minutes or so later he called and said there was someone finishing up another rental and she would be over. Kya (spelling) arrived about 5:00 and told us she would be done in about 3 hours or so. We had no choice but to cancel plans for the evening and left so that she could do her cleaning. When we arrived back at 9:00, she was done and we unpacked and went to bed. Needless to say that was a bad way to start our trip. My recommendation to Joe ( we never heard from him to see if all was ok ) would be to have the cleaning team text him they arrived and when they left so no one else begins their trip with a similar experience. If he does not get a text by a certain time, he can be proactive!

As for the cottage it is lovely. Everything is well done, the furniture comfortable, the floors beautiful, kitchen new and the location is perfect. Quiet, a short walk to beach or to the pool, restaurants and bikes. Overall just a great place.

We talked about the type of review we should give. This is as honest as can be. Disappointed with our initial arrival but that had nothing to do with the cottage or rental unit itself.

Perfect beach home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home that was just perfect for our girls trip! With it being only 1 block from the beach, we were able to come and go. The owner was great at communicating. It was really nice that there were beach towels and chairs there for our us. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

Fantastic family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This home is incredibly well-appointed:

beautiful furnishings,

quality appliances,

fully-equipped kitchen,

comfortable beds and linens,

great media options,

movies and games,

plenty of beach towels and chairs.

The house has a gas range and plenty of kitchen accessories, including a Keurig. For our a group of coffee addicts, we bought a Mr Coffee at Target and donated it to the house.

This house is a short 15 minute walk to the beach and not far from the WD Conference center. We love the quiet area of the beach and also the SportsCard access to the nearby pools.

The manager promptly responded to any inquiries, which is helpful if you're not familiar with Charleston/Mt Pleasant/IOP.

FANTASTIC home that we'll definitely book again!

Beautiful home, great for families, has all the amenities you could want.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. The hosts are very responsive and the home is beautiful. Wild Dunnes is perfect for families as you not only have the beach but the pools and amenities as well. If we come back to Island of Palms, we will definitely rent the home again.
