Summer Dunes Lane 7


5 bedrooms, 3½ baths, sleeps 12

In greater Charleston's Isle of Palms community, this 3,500-square-foot oceanfront villa, part of Wild Dunes Resort, grants direct access to some of South Carolina's most pristine beaches. The stature of this three-story rose-colored home recalls San Francisco's archetypal slim-and-stacked style. Each level has its own ocean-view deck with comfortable loungers. The common spaces, including the two-room gourmet kitchen, are all located on the first floor. The family-friendly villa showcases multiple examples of sea-cottage-chic style, with furnishings cast in light blue, white, and earth tones. The second floor is great for kids, and holds a bunk bed, a sleeper sofa, and twin beds.

Rates start at $3,675 per week; 888/778-1876 or wilddunes.com.
