I'm not quite sure where to start....I was tasked with planning my brother's bachelor party for originally 20 people which knocked down to 16 due to last minute drop outs. Bella, the owner of the house, was absolutely outstanding and more than accommodating throughout the entire booking experience all the way through to checking-out. I always felt Bella had my group's best interest at heart. With such a large party she suggested we rent her friend Mark's smaller house right across the street in addition to her house. I couldn't be happier that we did this as it help make everyone that much more comfortable at an affordable price. Also, Mark couldn't be any nicer. If you need some golf suggestions he is your guy! I would be doing a disservice if I didn't mention Larry, Bella's husband. He was a perfect extension of the kindness and service I received from Bella and Mark.
About the house: The house is beautiful. Newly renovated with plenty of spaces to sleep and plenty of restrooms. The outside area was perfect for us.
The pool isn't huge, but it could comfortably fit all 16 grown men. While it would have been nice for the putting green and pool to be on the same side of the house, it really doesn't matter. We actually took corn hole to the pool side and so everyone could be together by the pool. Oh and there is an arcade machine on the second floor with a bunch of old school games which was pretty cool.
Location: the location was great. It isn't downtown Myrtle Beach, but it is near some very nice golf courses and its easy to take a cab anywhere. This is especially true if your with a larger group. The cab rides end up not being too bad. It is also 2 blocks from the beach which was perfect. There are a handful of restaurants nearby (more of a cab ride on a really hot day). There is an excellent gentlemen's club nearby as well (sorry Bella - had to include this in the review). To give you some gauge it is a $40-45 cab ride from the airport.
If you are looking for a good restaurant go to Fire & Smoke on 79th Ave. One of the best meals I've ever had and it was extremely reasonable.
Overall: I would absolutely recommend this house or any of Bella's houses. It was a great experience. I think it is a great spot for any event whether it be a family outing, golf trip, or a bachelor party. As I was leaving, I was actually thinking about wanting to book another trip soon!
