25 Half Moon Lane, WaterSound West Beach

This is a beautiful well-equipped beach home. From the layout of the home to the fully equipped kitchen, the owners thought of everything. If you like to eat out, the location of this home allows for easy access to restaurants and shops.

It is beautifully, professionally decorated and super clean. It looks like a luxury model home and the photographs really don’t do it justice. We enjoyed cooking and lounging in the spacious downstairs and benefited form the separate spaces upstairs. The bedrooms are well decorated and the beds were as comfortable as any 5 star hotel. This lovely home made our stay extremely comfortable and enjoyable.

The location was safe and easy to get around. It has all the amenities you would want in a beach home and more. The beach was a short walk away and felt secluded and private.
We can’t wait to stay here again. ~ July 29, 2016

“Perfect Weekend for a Bachelorette Party!!!!”
The pictures do not do justice for this house. The house is absolutely gorgeous. My daughter held her bachelorette party with her bridal party at the house for a long weekend. We had a wonderful time. The house has everything you need with plenty of space for 7 women.. The realty company was so easy to work with and very quick at responding to our every need. We had one minor issue with the master bathroom and they were so quick to fix the problem without disturbing our stay. Kellie was great to work with as well as the rest of Dune Real Estate. We will definitely stay at this house next year! ~ October 20, 2016
