We will not be back/ Do not stay here!!
The pictures do not tell the story. Vines growing up through entry stairs. Carport a dirty mess and exterior needs paint. Mold on front door. Dining table stained. Kitchen utensils minimal. Kitchen sink and faucet needs to be replaced as do counter tops throughout, including bathrooms.
LR sofa is tattered with holes in arm rests. 7 inch TV in master bedroom...really?
Entry door glass to porch off master cracked. Porch off master is filthy and needs re-staining.
Road noise very evident from back porch and the gas grill needs to be replaced. The beach chairs and beach umbrella are a joke. Rusted and should have been replaced about five years ago.
Possibly the worst unit we have ever rented. Additionally, Wild Dunes is run down. Golf courses which once were magnificent have not been maintained, Very few dining options inside the gates. The Board Walk and Pavilion are showing big time signs of wear, including rust, peeling and cracked paint. Poor or lacking overall landscaping maintenance throughout the resort. Bike rental units are rusty and worn.
Thank God the beach is beautiful, we had great weather and Charleston is only a 25 minute drive, otherwise this place is a disaster.
Way better options can be found at Hilton Head, Amelia Island or the Florida Panhandle.
We felt like we were ripped off. Asked rental office to move us and they had no acceptable options. Wanted to charge us 500 dollars more to move to a beach side unit...no way! Head of reservations did not even have the courtesy to return our phone call.
Really, really disappointing.
Thank you for sharing your disappointment regarding your impressions of Wild Dunes Resort and 23 Sand Crab Court. I apologize on behalf of Beachside Team that your experience in Wild Dunes Resort was so different than so many of our past guests to this wonderful home and beautiful resort community.
Wild Dune Resort has so much to offer. Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Award in 2018 ranked Wild Dunes Resort “Top Southern Resort in the US”. In 2019, Wild Dunes Tennis was ranked #3 in the World by Tennis Resorts Online. Golf Magazine in 2018 ranked Wild Dunes Links Course in the top twenty in South Carolina. Finally, South Living ranked the Isle of Palms amount the South’s Best Beaches in 2018. It is so disappointing that your experience in Wild Dunes was in such contrast to many accolades earned by the Resort this past year.
In addition to the many awards presented to Wild Dunes over the past year, 23 Sand Crab Court has experienced similar feedback. One recent review shared with us that 23 Sand Crab Court “We loved the house and location and it was perfect for our needs”. Another guest stated
” It is the perfect size and location for us. The property is quiet, safe and secure”. Where another family wrote “We loved this cozy beach cottage. It was pretty, comfortable and clean, and it was just a short walk from the beach”.
Where these reviews are excellent, the property owner continues to make improvements.
Recent upgrades include:
All new HVAC duct work, which enhanced air conditioning throughout the home.
The living area, dining area and bedrooms were painted.
New Weber Grill.
The beach chairs have been replaced with Tommy Bahama chairs. A beach cart is also included, in addition to a $250 Beach Gear Credit.
Removed all carpeting with new flooring in each bedroom.
Thank you again for sharing with us your feedback and we deeply regret that your experience was so different than readers of Conde Nast, Golf Magazine and past visitors to 23 Sand Crab Court.
A Perfect Beach Cottage
23 Sandcrab proved to be the perfect place for us to stay while visiting Charleston for a family event. It is so pretty and very comfortable! We found everything we needed in the cottage, and everything was neat and clean. An easy stroll to the beach!
We'd definitely recommend this comfortable home to anyone!
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so happy when guests love our home as much as we do. We hope to see you back on the island soon!
Perfect for a group with teenagers. Very cute inside and has everything you need.
Very cute house with everything you need. Good for a group with teens (not necessarily small children because you have to cross a busy road to get to the beach). The beach where the house is a very nice section of the beach.
We appreciate the great review. We are updating our property yearly and hope to see you back on the island soon!
Beautiful home, with all the amenities!
This was perfect for our family beach vacation. Great location, not far from the beach!
We appreciate the excellent review. We are obviously big fans of this Wild Dunes cottage and hope the quality, location, and Wild Dunes access were all wonderful for your vacation. Thank you again for the kind comments and we will see you on the island again real soon!
Beautiful property, close access to a remote beach, and lots of privacy!
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.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we are big fans of the beach area near this home also. Thank you for the kind comments and we hope to see you on the island again real soon!
Beachy, fresh, relaxing, fabulous!
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.
