Overview

Crescent Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

The Fran-Ma-Ray, a wonderful ocean front family beach house on the beautiful beach of Ocean Drive in North Myrtle Beach, is available for year-round rental. The Fran-Ma-Ray has the delightful and comfortable atmosphere of an old-style beach house, but with many modern conveniences.

The Fran-Ma-Ray, located at 821 South Ocean Boulevard of North Myrtle Beach, has been owned by the same family since it was built in 1939. After extensive damage during Hurricane Hazel in 1954, the Fran-Ma-Ray was rebuilt in 1955. It has been enjoyed by many family and friends since that time. In 2009-2010, The Fran-Ma-Ray underwent still another extensive remodeling. The updates include a new open front deck and five sets of new French doors in the living area which open up a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean. While the house now features many modern updates and additions (including central heat and air-conditioning, washer and dryer, cable TV, internet access and ceiling fans throughout), the original knotty-pine paneled and hardwood floors heart of the house has been retained and provides the nostalgic feel of an old-style beach house.

The Fran-Ma-Ray features all the comfort and convenience a vacationer could want with the Atlantic Ocean right outside your front door. Everything from the excitement of Myrtle Beach entertainment to the quiet of sitting and rocking on the front porch and watching the waves. The Fran-Ma-Ray offers it all!!

We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will enjoy our beach house as much as four generations of the Smith family and friends have over the last 70 years.

Best Vacation House Ever

  • 5 of 5
We went on this vacation to get all of my children (3 different states) and grandparents together for a week. Absolutely beautiful house - decorated beautifully. Has all of the amenities you would ever need. We loved sitting on the porch looking out at the ocean. We grilled and ate on the big screened in porch, played games in the yard, and loved just walking to the beach yards away. If you have a family and want to get away then this is the house that you want to rent. The owners are friendly and helpful and it was so amazing that we did not want to leave. We are definitely going to return and I am already looking into weeks available for next year. My daughter got married while we were there and we all went back to the house and grilled and went down to the beach afterwards. Words can not describe the week that we enjoyed there! The only disadvantage to this house was that we had to leave!

Best family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our whole experience at the Fran Ma Rae was incredible. We were so close to the beach, which the kids loved. We plan on coming here again and again. All of the photos were exactly as the property was. It was clean and perfect for our family of 7. We had my granddaughter with us, she is 1 years old. Although it would have been nice to have a pack and play, we just put one of the mattresses on the floor and it worked perfect. There is so much to see and do close by. Everything was within a 20 minute distance that we wanted to do. My daughter has celiac disease and being near a grocery store with Gluten Free options was really important. There are several Gluten Free restaurants near the beach house also, but we did most of our cooking at the house which was really enjoyable. We look forward to making this a family vacation and making many more memories in the future.
Thank you for everything

Place was better than advertised and exactly what we were looking for. Steps from the beach, outstanding view, nice location, very clean rooms. Gorgeous wood floors and plenty of room to sleep all 8 guys in the group. Would come back no question.

Great Beach Home

  • 5 of 5
We came to MB for a golf trip and were lucky enought to find this wonderful home. Not only did we get to enjoy the local golf courses, we also had the double benefit of a real beach vacation. The home easily accomodated our group. The home was clean, comfortable and plenty of room. The owners were great to deal with and helped make our trip memorable. Once you sit on the front porch of this home, you will never look for another home in MB. We hope to return for our annual golf trip next year.

Fran-Ma-Ray was great for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5
When I learned that my brother and his family would be spending a week with my parents, I quickly suggested we all get together in Myrtle Beach. We haven't all been together in five years and since we vacationed on this stretch of the coast when my brother and I were kids, I thought being here would really bring back memories. I was lucky enough to get us into Fran-Ma-Ray and it was perfect.

Fran-Ma-Ray is such a comfortable place - and the kitchen is so well equipped - that we immediately slipped into relaxed, vacation mode. It was just like old times. The beach was right at our doorstep and sitting in rocking chairs on the porch, with the sea breeze blowing in, we took our time watching the ocean and catching up.

The week together was great. Fran-Ma-Ray was the perfect place for us and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

No other family vacation home on the Grand Strand comes close to the Fran-Ma-Ray!

  • 5 of 5
Once you find yourself at the Fran-Ma-Ray for the first time, you will never have to look any farther for a place to call home at the beach. Our family has a 40 year history of vacationing on the Grand Strand and, from Cherry Grove to Pawley's Island, we have never stayed in a beach home that compares to the Fran-Ma-Ray. This charming beach home offers a rare combination of mid-20th Century nostalgia, with its original tongue-and-groove knotty pine walls/ceilings, broad porch with lazy rocking chairs/ceiling fans and modern comforts and amenities such as full length windows that provide breathtaking views of the beach/ocean, central AC, and Satellite TV w/DVR. This was our second year staying at the Fran-Ma-Ray and we are looking forward to returning for many years to come!
