Still a few days in August 2018 left, so don't miss out on summer fun - and in these parts, summer extends through September with warm weather and water. Welcome to our cute and casual raised beach home with our own private pool, at the gateway to Wild Dunes. Located inside the resort, our home is mere steps from the best WIDE UNSPOILED beach in Isle of Palms (2-minute walk). Convenient to the Citadel Beach House, and on the bike path for easy access to all of Wild Dunes Resort.
We'll be booking 2019 dates starting in October, so stay tuned.
You enter our home through the screened porch, which is adjacent to our elevated triangle pool (most unusual!), great for splashing around after a day of sun. Inside you see an open floor plan with full kitchen with breakfast bar for 4, and everything you need for cooking anything from quick coffee and toast before golf, to an elaborate low country shrimp boil. Pots, pans, dishes, microwave, all the appliances plus a dishwasher of course. Kitchen is open to the dining area with table/chairs/bench for 7 (plus 4 more at the breakfast bar). This is open to the living room with new comfy sleeper sofa and 2 recliners, and a big flat screen TV with cable. Just off the living room is a half bath.
Also on the main floor is the master bedroom with queen bed and TV set, and its own en suite bathroom with double vanity, tub/shower and "water closet." The bedroom has a nice big closet too (with our own 'lending library').
Upstairs you find a bedroom with a queen bed (with "reading nook"), a bedroom with a double bed with twin trundle (kid's favorite!), and - WOW - another full living room - this one with sleeper futon, foosball table, another TV, and an alcove with two twin beds. (My kids call this "The Kids Lounge!") The stack washer/dryer is also in this area, plus there is a handy sink area for some extra "vanity space." There's another full bath upstairs - this one with shower and toilet area next to the sink vanity.
Step outdoors and you'll find our gas grill so you can cook up some juicy steaks, corn on the cob from the farmers market, or that fresh fish you pulled out of the surf earlier in the day. There's also a basketball goal, plus plenty of storage for bikes and golf carts which you can rent and have delivered right to the house. An outdoor shower comes in handy, and there's also a hose in case Fido needs to rinse off.
Did I mention the POOL? Let me tell you a bit more. It's a raised triangle-shaped pool, 15x15x15. The attached deck has chairs and a table for relaxing. This is attached to our screened porch which has a small table with some chairs, perfect to enjoy morning coffee or an afternoon beverage. People tell us that their dog loves hanging out on the porch watching all the squirrels scamper in the live oak trees. Speaking of live oaks, we have a spectacular one right next to our pool. Sure it drops leaves into the pool, but big whoop right? Where else can you view a dazzling ancient tree like that? By the way, the pool is professionally serviced twice per week so the water's sparkling fresh.
We strive to provide clean, comfortable accommodations at an attractive price. Our home is not super fancy but everyone agrees that we have everything you need to enjoy vacation. Note that we do not include sheets/towels, so BYO - it saves you big money. If your vacation rental needs call for high end items like Sub-zero appliances, designer furnishings and granite everywhere, please try Wild Dunes Rentals - there are many choices available for people who are used to paying more.
Be sure to get a complete quote from the owner that includes all taxes and fees, so you are not surprised. Dare to compare our complete price to anyone else in Wild Dunes or Isle of Palms. We provide you plenty of info with a quote to help you make an informed choice.
We do not require a full week with specific turnover day, unlike many of our competitors. Please be aware - -a Saturday check-in or check-out will require a premium payment, for which you will receive early check-in or late check-out privileges.
Wild Dunes Amenities: See our separate handout on this. Most popular question is "what's this about the "Sports Card?" Our home does not participate in the Sports Card program; did you know that guests are still required to pay additional fees to use resort pools and facilities even when you present a Sports Card, and you still don't get access to many Wild Dunes facilities? We figured, why bother...so we built our own pool. Be sure to find out all the info about the Sports Card so you are not surprised if you choose a property that features this item. We will provide a list of Wild Dunes amenities that you can use, what you can't, and what will cost you extra.
One more thing - WE DO NOT ADVERTISE THIS VACATION RENTAL ON CRAIGS LIST (other than for long-term stays)! If you see this home in Craigs List or Wix or any of the "free" websites, it is probably a scam, so beware. We do, however, advertise on Air BNB and Facebook so that is legit.
Enjoy your vacation and thank you for reading!
