We stayed in this immaculate and beautifully appointed condo from Dec 27th, 2014 to Jan 3rd, 2015.
Yes, it IS just as beautiful as it appears in the photos! You won’t be disappointed.
We, are my husband and I, our 20 year old son, and my parents. My husband did all of the communicating with Ben, the owner, and booked this condo for our family’s "After the Holidays get-a-way." The reservation process went very smoothly. Ben was very quick to respond, and quick to return out deposit.
We have been coming to Myrtle Beach for summer vacations since 1983. We live in NJ, and this was our 3rd time coming to MB during this Holiday week, this is our 2nd time staying at The Southwind, but our first in this condo. While the weather is a little chilly this time of year, most attractions and restaurants are open, and there are never any crowds - such a difference from when we visit Myrtle Beach in the summer months!
My one and only initial concern with this condo, was that it was only on the 2nd floor, as I usually like to be on a higher floor for the views of the ocean, but those were concerns were NOT founded, as the views were amazing, and the location was perfect when parking on the 2nd level too. We were able to see dolphins swimming by almost every day and enjoyed watching the pelicans fly by too! The palm trees along the coastline made for some beautiful photo opportunities too!
Again, the décor is lovely and the place feels homey. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfy, there is LOTS of space and the 5 of us never felt crowded. The balcony furniture is high quality, and comfortable, as are the furnishing throughout the condo.
We enjoyed spending New Year’s Eve here, and were even treated to some fireworks out on the beach!
The location is perfect - closer to Broadway at the Beach, than to Barefoot Landing - but almost right in the middle between both.
We played 5 games of mini-golf at 5 different locations ( my Mom’s favorite thing to do in MB,) had dinner at The Mellow Mushroom, Sticky Fingers, The Flying Fish and Margaritaville, played board games, read books, relaxed and spent quality, fun, family time together.
We HIGHLY recommend this condo, and would stay here again in a heartbeat! Wish we were back there again right now! Thanks for a lovely vacation Ben!
