A few weeks ago, Josh and I headed South for a few days! You all know how much I love the Charleston, SC area. However, Isle of Palms is one area that I have surprisingly never visited! Isle of Palms is right outside of Charleston, but it is an entirely different area and vibe than Charleston. While I do love Charleston, the traffic can be a bit much sometimes- especially when you’re as pregnant as I am. For this trip, I wanted to relax and unwind a bit before baby girl arrives. Wild Dunes resort was the perfect place for us to do just that!
Upon arrival at the gate to Wild Dunes, you are greeted with luscious landscape and beautiful scenery. We stayed at the Boardwalk Inn, which was just a short drive from the main gate. We arrived early to check in and knew that the room would likely not be ready for us upon arrival. However, we were so surprised to learn that our room was in fact ready! Each staff member at Wild Dunes that we interacted with was so friendly, helpful and kind!
When we walked into our room, I was blown away by how welcoming it was. The beds were heavenly (which is huge when you’re in your third trimester of pregnancy)! One of the places that I spent the most time during our stay was on the balcony. Our balcony overlooked the pool and we had a beautiful view.
In addition to the wonderful accommodations at the Boardwalk Inn, Wild Dunes offers a variety of places to stay. From vacation home, cottage and condo rentals to the Village At Wild Dunes, you really cannot go wrong! Often times, we travel with my parents and knowing that there are options at Wild Dunes for a large group is a major plus for our family!
The wonderful accommodations are just a small part of what makes Wild Dunes a wonderful and relaxing destination. The dining options are endless (and delicious) and there are activities for the entire family to enjoy! A few of my favorite activities are the dolphin watching excursion and the basket weaving class. We also rented beach chairs one day so that we could enjoy some time on the beautiful beach at Wild Dunes!
One of the highlights of our trip was dining at Coastal Provisions. Located in the lobby of the Boardwalk Inn, Coastal Provisions offers delicious food and a beautiful atmosphere. I highly recommend the shrimp hushpuppies – as I am writing this, my mouth is watering! The service was wonderful as well at Coastal Provisions, the staff was friendly and so helpful!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay at Wild Dunes in Isle of Palms! The only downfall was, we couldn’t stay longer! I love that the atmosphere is family friendly, but also quiet and relaxing. With so many things to do, you can choose to relax and unwind or be adventurous!
