Due to the situation on the Gulf Coast, my family of 7 (4 adults/3 teens) is searching for a replacement vacation. I planned and searched for months to choose the first one, so this is hard for me! We really like the location/feel of Wild Dunes or Isle of Palms, but have had no luck finding something on the water or very close to beach, which is what we've always had.
So far I've checked: VRBO, Homeaway, vacationrentals.com, island realty, wilddunes.com and resort quest. Units are either run down or not at all near the beach. Any ideas? Any one know of a friend or family member with a nice condo or villa for rent that sleeps 7? We are two professional families with well mannered, older kids. Any help at all or suggestions for other areas would be much appreciated! Thanks!
