Excuse the two week absence but I’m so glad to be back with a new post. I’m actually in Georgia today to attend a relative’s wedding. But I’m taking a short break to post this very exciting news!
Hip Mama’s Place has recently partnered with Wild Dunes Charleston’s Island Resort to offer a free two-night stay at this beautiful Charleston’s Island Resort, complete with breakfast daily and bike rentals to explore the island! Plus, with historic Charleston a short drive away, you will be sure to experience romance beyond the beach!
So where is Wild Dunes Resort and what do they offer to vacationers?
Nestled on the northern tip of Isle of Palms, a lush barrier island off the coast of South Carolina, Wild Dunes Resort is located less than 30 minutes from the charm and grace of historic Charleston. The Resort occupies 1,600 acres of oceanfront paradise with a variety of accommodations ranging from the AAA Four Diamond Rated Boardwalk Inn and Village at Wild Dunes to private villas and luxury home rentals. Offering a year-round menu of championship golf, nationally ranked tennis, award-winning recreation, spa services and restaurant options, Wild Dunes Resort has been distinguished by many publications and associations as a top destination for families, golfers, tennis lovers and meeting and event planners. It is one of more than 30 independent, upscale and luxury hotels, resorts and golf clubs in the United States managed by Destination Hotels & Resorts, the fourth largest independent hospitality management company in the country.
Here’s a short video to get an idea about fun things to do at the Wild Dunes Resort– including some great ideas for a romantic getaway at the resort with your sweetie!
