TRADITIONAL OCEAN FRONT FAMILY BEACH HOUSE - NEWLY RENOVATED

Ocean Drive 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.

Great Beach Home

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

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!

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!

FINALLY FOUND "THE PLACE" FOR OUR FAMILY

FINALLY FOUND "THE PLACE" FOR OUR FAMILY

We recently stayed at the Fran-Ma-Ray for the first time. From the minute we walked in the door, we were thrilled about our choice! This house combines the warmth and charm of the "old beach house" style, with the freshness and fun of up-to-date accessories and colors. We didn't want to leave. Kid friendly, family friendly, room for lots of cooks in the kitchen, "charming" only begins to describe this lovely home. We're thinking of scheduling an "off season" week to add to our summer week. One week is NOT enough!

I have been visting the Fran-Ma-Ray since my college days which was over 30 years ago! I have always loved the rustic quality of the house--all that beautiful wood and especially those great downstairs showers. The porch and rocking chairs are always our favorite place to be-you just can't beat the view when you are only yards from the ocean. I thought the house couldn't get any better, but I was wrong. All the recent renovations and redecorating only made the house much more enjoyable. Now you can enjoy that beautiful view from the living room as well. The house is roomy and comfortable and accommodates 14 easily. Although there is television, it was rarely used because we are too busy enjoying each other's company and the beach. This is the best place to just RELAX. Our days were spent on the beach followed by drinks on the porch and dinner. Nights brought board games and great conversation--we never even ventured off the property. Great times, fond memories, and I'm looking forward to many more. I highly recommend this property--start making your own memories.
