About the property



WELCOME TO OUR VILLA: Lovely 1218 square foot renovated condo inside the Wild Dunes gates. Vaulted, beamed and planked ceilings, soft lighting, French doors, premium Pergo flooring and updated bathrooms. Fully stocked Kitchen with stone countertops and breakfast bar, stainless appliances, large capacity washer and dryer, solid flatware.

Free WiFi, 55" wall mounted TV in great room, each bedroom with flat screen TV. Our split bedroom floor plan is the best design and most spacious of all 2 bedroom villas on the island! (See floor plan photo). We personally manage our villa so if you want the comforts of home, you've found it here. We want you to enjoy it as much as we do.

2 BEDROOMS/2 BATHS: Our spacious and cozy upper level 'treehouse' villa is surrounded by lagoons and ancient Live Oaks and is one of few that offers a Beautyrest KING bed and beautiful walk-in shower in master suite. Two Beautyrest double beds in guest bedroom. Split bedroom design. Each bedroom has a 32' flat screen TV & DVD player, private bathroom, private deck and overlooks our pool and gardens. And unlike lower units, we have a 200sf covered deck which provides sunset views and room for family and friends to gather. (Located away from mosquitoes at the lagoons).

COMFORT: NO VERTICAL BLINDS, BLACK-OUT DRAPERIES. NO GUEST NOISE ABOVE and BEDROOMS ARE NOT ABOVE GARAGES/CARPORTS as are many BEACH FRONT condos at Wild Dunes (no early engines and fumes!). Tub/shower and water closet separated from vanity/lavatory areas in each bathroom. Cotton linens and fluffy white towels provided. Each bedroom has large closets.

CENTRAL LOCATION: Closest condo complex to the beach not on the beach. Walk 500 yards down a quiet lane and boardwalk to our excellent beach or throw in a line from our fishing dock on one of our lagoons. Walk to golf (2 courses), tennis, restaurants, bike shop. Enjoy nature trails and bike paths. Go marsh or ocean kayaking, deep sea fishing or an eco tour from the nearby Isle of Palms Marina. And Historic Charleston is a short drive away.

OVERRATED “SPORTSCARD”: There is a private pool in our complex for the exclusive use of Lagoon Villas. Our guests have access to Wild Dunes golf, tennis, bikes, spa services, children’s activities, evening events at the Pavilion, etc. without the overrated sportscard. You can walk to all these activities. We do not have access to the fitness “room” or the Wild Dunes community pool. Sportscard offers a slight discount for golf and tennis. FREE TENNIS & FITNESS is available at the beautiful Isle of Palms Recreation Center a few blocks outside the gate. A real savings for tennis lovers.

PETS: We welcome your pet children for MONTHLY stays. The Wild Dunes Community Association prohibits pets of guests/renters for stays fewer than 30 days. Pets are allowed inside the gates for 30 day+ stays ONLY, so be aware of 'pet friendly' properties which do not provide this information. You could be fined or worse, turned away at the gates!

WILD DUNES PAVILION: Access is limited in summer season to those renting inside the pavilion area. However, we have enjoyed hot dogs and hamburgers there many, many times and often at night, there is music. It’s located about 200 ft. from our beach area.

IN ADDITION: We supply soaps, lotions, coffee filters, hair dryers, games, books, cards and DVDs.

About Cathey M Bailey

I live in the mountains of WNC but I love the SC coast and especially the Charleston area. While our kids were young, we visited Pawley's Island, Kiawah, Florida resorts and Wild Dunes. As we began to think about owning a second home, we decided on Wild Dunes. Many more advantages for us, our friends & family than at Kiawah. Wonderful restaurants from old fashion seafood houses to very fine dining. Pool, golf, bike rentals, restaurants are just steps from our condo ... the beach is across the street and down a lovely lane. I love Wild Dunes and have updated our home there to insure our comfort and yours. We have had some pretty miserable nights at Wild Dunes in horrible beds and linens that don't fit. We won't do that to you!

Cathey M Bailey purchased this condo in 1999

Why Cathey M Bailey chose Isle of Palms

Short walk to beach, golf, bike rental, spa, deli & restaurants. Near historic Sullivan's Island and Downtown Charleston with all the wonderful things to do there

What makes this condo unique

We looked at and stayed at several Wild Dunes 2-bedroom condos before we bought. We wanted 'space' and we wanted one floor ... UNUSUAL here! We updated and LOVE IT! It's a great floor plan, has a nice garden/pool view, fully equipped kitchen, 'quality' king sized bed (unusual for condos in our complex)...very livable, attractive and convenient. Golf & bike rentals are just steps from our condo ... the Atlantic Ocean beach is across the street and down a lovely lane.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so impressed with the lovely finishes and luxurious touches in this quaint condo. Like a 5-star hotel and a classic B & B combined into one. Marble bathrooms, fluffy white towels, new sinks and faucets, super was great. Wish the weather would have cooperated so we could have used the pool and beach, but that's not the condo's fault!

Our November Beach vacation was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at Wild Dunes- it's been our favorite place to vacation for many years. The condo was very cozy, as advertised, with everything we needed for our stay. The beds were very comfortable! Family came for Thanksgiving and we had the cooking supplies and plenty of dishes for a huge Thanksgiving meal. We were surprised that we had so many warm days in November and took full advantage of the nice weather, with lots of walks on the beach and even a few days where we sat out in beach chairs all day. We also rented a bike and took turns riding around the island. Many of the boardwalks were still down, but we found a favorite beach path and it was a short walk. As Cathey suggested, on the days when we took chairs and coolers, we dropped everything off with our car and then walked there.For meals out, our favorite places were Long Island Cafe and come Seafood Kitchen. Excellent food and great service! Thanks for a wonderful time at your beach home- we hope to come again!

Great location perfect space

  • 5 of 5

We had to make a last min reservation and Cathy was very accommodating and helpful getting us set quickly. The condo is located with a view of the pool (while we didn't use it bc we went in the off season I def could see it being ideal in the summer) It had all the amenities you need to get by on vacation. The condo was well decorated and offered lots of space for our group. We enjoyed being able to relax at night in the large family room, we wish we could have used the decks...again something I could see as a wonderful amenity in warmer weather. Its not on the beach but still a great central location in Wild Dunes. Would recommend

Relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and spacious. I loved the fact that linens and towels were provided and many kitchen and bath items were available on arrival. Having the pool right out the door was a plus, too. Beach erosion was a surprise when we first walked to the ocean (there was no beach area). However, once we checked the high tides each day we planned our daily trips accordingly and had a wonderful stay! Cathey, you were right, we loved your place and IOP! We hope to visit again next year!

This was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting Charleston and attending my nephews wedding. We stayed here with my sister and her husband. It offered complete privacy for everyone as there were two complete bathrooms and balconies as well as a lovely sitting room with complete kitchen and dining for all the times we shared together. Thanks for a great visit.
