Jeff is back out of town for work again and before he went we wanted to take a little getaway alone. Getting ANY time alone is hard to come by these days, with two teens doing hybrid schooling and two Great Danes who NEED schooling we decided to sneak away for the weekend before he left!
We live in Myrtle Beach, thankfully one of our favorite places to visit is only a short car ride away. Isle of Palms is right outside of Charleston, it’s absolutely gorgeous and perfect for a quick weekend trip.
Wild Dunes Resort
Wild Dunes Resort is located just 30 minutes from the charm and grace of historic downtown Charleston. This resort seriously made us feel like we were taken to a faraway remote island. Wild Dunes Resort is like a little community in itself, it is comprised of The Boardwalk Inn, The Village at Wild Dunes, and Vacation Homes & Villas
There are two different hotel properties at the resort. We stayed at The Village at Wild Dunes, which offers a traditional king or two-queen guest rooms in addition to studios and one, two, and three-bedroom suites with full kitchens.
We stayed in a one-bedroom condo. It had a full kitchen, living area, balcony and is just a short walk from the beach. All the suites are fully furnished and tastefully decorated in the casual elegance of the Lowcountry and enjoy all the amenities of the hotel
Our bedroom was spacious and attached to it was an equally spacious bathroom. The bathroom was huge with a stand-alone shower and a nice size bathtub to relax in as well. It came equipped with all of the necessary amenities and bath products.
The second property at the resort is The Boardwalk Inn. We stayed there two years ago and loved it. We had a deluxe room with two queen beds and a private balcony overlooking the pool. Both properties are gorgeous and have so much to offer!
Of course one of my favorite parts of Wild Dunes Resort is the gorgeous Isle of Palms beach that I never want to leave when we visit. There is a boardwalk that takes you straight to the beach from the Boardwalk Inn and it’s just across the street from The Villages. This is perfect if you want a beach vacation without the stress of parking or walking forever.
There are also several pools to choose from as well. There are pools located at The Boardwalk Inn that have cabanas, that one is adult-only. The Grand Pavilion pools that are right next to the ocean are my personal favorite. The Grand Pavilion pools are family-friendly with panoramic ocean views. There are also so many dining options by those pools as well, and you can’t beat the sunsets!
There are so many activities to do during your stay. Bike rentals are available to ride around and take in the gorgeous scenery. You can play 36 holes of championship golf, a round of tennis, or any of our excursions or workshops from paddleboarding to fishing, and more.
Since I mentioned dining options let’s talk about where we ate. We arrived Friday evening, after checking in and watching the sunset we headed to Coastal Provisions for dinner. After our drive, we were so ready for some good food and a drink. Coastal Provisions is an upscale seafood, and chophouse restaurant, it is located right inside the Boardwalk Inn. The menu looked was incredible. I got the crabcakes and let me tell you I am from Maryland and I have never had a crab cake as good as I had from here! Delicious! Everything was perfect and tasted amazing. I ended our dinner with a pumpkin spice martini! Highly recommend!
The next day we went to have lunch at Huey’s Southern Eats. The weather was gorgeous so we sat outside and watched the golfers. Huey’s is a casual spot, but don’t worry the food is delicious! We both got sandwiches and I had to have one of their house bloody mary’s! So good!
I literally can’t say enough amazing things about our stay at Wild Dunes Resort. I’m so thankful we got to spend the weekend enjoying each other before he headed back out of town for work. Wild Dunes Resort was the perfect place to take a mini getaway for the weekend. The only downfall was, we couldn’t stay longer!
A big thanks to Wild Dunes for hosting us, as always all opinions are my own.
