Isle of Palms / Wild Dunes

Isle of Palms / Wild Dunes

Isle of Palms is a barrier island with everything. There’s lush vegetation, from age-old live oaks to flowering crepe myrtles and oleanders. For the sports-minded, there’s golf, great fishing, crabbing and shrimping, and more water sports than we can name.

Crossing over from Mt. Pleasant on the Isle of Palms Connector, you can see the majestic sweep of the Atlantic and stately ships on the horizon. To your left is the resort of Wild Dunes. To your right is the small marina at Breach Inlet. Go through the only stop light on the island, and you’ll pass by the Isle of Palms County Park before turning onto the “front beach” area where you will find many small cafes, bistros, restaurants and shops. Today, Isle of Palms  has a population of  around 5,000 full-time residents and even more investment owners and visitors who call it “home” every year.

If you are interested in “trying on” this beautiful part of the Charleston Coast, we have a number of Isle of Palms homes and condos on our vacation rental program. We’d love to have you as a guest while you look for your ideal vacation (or forever) home on the Isle of Palms!

Drop by or contact our Isle of Palms Office to speak with one of our professional, experienced Isle of Palms real estate agents, who can offer an insider’s view of living, working, and playing in the Lowcountry.  With a wide variety of attractions and recreational activities available, it’s easy and fun to explore the different areas of the Charleston Coast,

Isle of Palms History

Isle of Palms was first named Hunting Island, then Long Island, and in 1899 J.S. Lawrence purchased the island and renamed it Isle of Palms. Lawrence built bridges from the mainland, and trolley cars made regular crossings from Charleston, SC. In 1906, a resort hotel with 50 rooms was built, making the island one of the most elegant vacation spots for the summer season. In 1912, James Sottile built a spacious pavilion and even brought in a huge Ferris wheel.

Today, live oak trees drip with Spanish moss. Many varieties of palms sway in the gentle ocean breezes. Crepe Myrtles, oleanders, and azaleas add vivid contrasting colors to the many wildflowers growing in and along the dunes.

Isle of Palms Lifestyle

Isle of Palms is an island town, not a private gated sub-division. Only 20 minutes from downtown Charleston, the island is home to commuters, retirees and second homes. It is quiet in the winter and very busy in the summer. Today our beach is lined by magnificent beach homes, most of them built since Hugo and there are no high rises to steal the view.

Isle of Palms lifestyle is comfortable and familiar. Weekend mornings often begin with breakfast at one of our local cafes, a stroll or a bike ride on the beach, followed by a few hours in the surf, then maybe some beach music or reggae at one of the bistros along front beach. You don’t have to leave the Isle of Palms at night to find great entertainment, with many spots offering live music.

Wild Dunes Lifestyle

Living in Wild Dunes is like living in a first-class vacation destination surrounded by a private country club. The gates at either end of Wild Dunes keep traffic to a minimum and turn the winding roads into restful parkways. For those who want to enjoy nature without sacrificing creature comforts, Wild Dunes has a wide variety of activities. Play a few sets of tennis, lunch at the club, enjoy a cocktail by the pool, relax in the sun on a sumptuous chaise lounge, or stroll along one of the prettiest beaches in the Carolinas.  Everything is right there, well maintained and waiting for you to take advantage of it.

Whether you are retired, looking for a change in lifestyle, considering a second home or looking for a new place to set down roots, Wild Dunes offers a country club lifestyle just minutes from historic Charleston. Close enough to commute, yet far enough removed to make you feel like you are on vacation. Wild Dunes is a must-see for those considering real estate along the Charleston Coast.
