Carol Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Carol Bay is a private, 16-unit condo. Our unit offers 1st floor convenience w/a view of the ocean. It has been completely remodeled, is fully furnished w/all the conveniences of home. If you’re looking for an immaculate vacation rental w/beach access, you’ll love our condo. This is our 2nd home & we selectively rent it to people who will treat it w/care. There are beach towels & bed & bath linens for your use, or you can bring your own. There are also lots of books for your enjoyment as well as beach chairs & floats you can use. A 40in LCD HDTV has recently been installed in the family room. You can easily walk to the beach; a public beach access is directly across the street. Free parking, phone and free wireless access are provided. There are many restaurants, entertainment, golf courses, & shopping opportunities nearby. Public transportation is available with a pick-up located in front of our condo. More public transportation information can be obtained at www.coastrta.com.

Why the Owner Chose Carol Bay: : There are several restaurants within walking distance of our condo including Flamingo Grill, River City Cafe, Outback Steakhouse, Collector's Cafe, and Starbucks. Other favorite restaurants of ours include Sea Captain's House, Carolina Roadhouse and Biminis. Carolina Opry and Pirates Voyage are less than 2 miles away while Broadway at the Beach, Myrtle Waves Water Park, and Myrtle Beach Convention Center are a 7 minute drive. Do not miss other activities in Myrtle Beach including dining at over 1500 Restaurants, Championship Golf, Alabama Theater, Medieval Times, Ripley's Aquarium, Pelican's Baseball, NASCAR Speed Park, Barefoot Landing, Legends in Concert, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, Hard Rock Cafe, Children's Museum of SC, The Market Common, Family Kingdom Amusement Park, Sky Wheel and Celebrity Square at Broadway at the Beach.

The Unique Benefits of this Condo: A well-kept secret in Myrtle Beach is the Market Common area (former Air Force Base). There are shopping areas, restaurants, and cinemas located here. Market Common is 15 minutes south of our condo on Farrow Pkwy. Also the Coastal Grande Mall and Tanger Outlet Mall offer great shopping and dining options. There are several golf courses within a 5 minute drive and dozens more within a 30-minute drive. If you enjoy dancing, whether it's the shag which is the official dance of Myrtle Beach, or other dance styles, Duck's and Fat Harolds in North Myrtle Beach as well as Club 2001 located just a few blocks north of our condo are the place to be. Visit 'Bimini's' for the best oysters (raw, steamed or fried) on the beach, and they're half price before 6pm!

Owner Description: We are from North Carolina and live in the Raleigh area, but we consider Myrtle Beach, SC, to be our 2nd home. We expect the guests in our condo to treat it as if they owned the property.

60 days notice is required if monthly rentals are cancelled in order to receive the deposit refund. 30 days cancellation notice required for 1 week rentals or shorter to receive the deposit refund. If these terms are not met, then the deposit is non-refundable.

Great Stay at Carol Bay

  • 4 of 5

We spent a month (January 2015) at this great condo in Myrtle Beach. The condo was everything we hoped for and exactly as advertised. It's large, very clean, and well stocked. The location is perfect. It's a few steps to the beach, with several restaurants close by. We especially liked Martins Restaurant, the Flamingo (you have to try the Lobster Bites), River City Cafe (awesome burgers) and Starbucks. The master suite is great. Very large with a nice layout. The open floor plan for living and dining rooms is good. Our only thought would be a more up to date dining set and new sofa. We had the best time at Carol Bay and have already booked January 2016. Thanks to Larry and Wanda.

Beautiful and spacious; perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with my family for our post-Christmas/New Year's celebration. We have never stayed in a condo before where everything was so perfect. It is truly like being at home. With 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, we all had our own space and were not on top of each other as in other places we have stayed. Even being wintertime, we loved being able to walk across the street and enjoy the beauty of the beach and take beach walks. We shopped, enjoyed a show, and ate wonderful food. We hope to come again in the spring and will definitely be back in touch with you. Thanks again!

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a fabulous week's stay at this wonderful condo for a sibling reunion. We came together from OH, FL and NC. The condo was perfect for us. It was clean, spacious, and contained all of the comforts we needed to enjoy our week. The location was perfect for a short walk to the beach, and just a short drive to area restaurants. We enjoyed the outdoor patio for morning coffee and the pool area for relaxing and reading. The 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths made things so convenient for our group of 6. Thanks to the owners, Larry & Wanda, for sharing your lovely vacation home with us.

Relaxing, fun-filled vacation at gorgeous Myrtle Beach condo

  • 5 of 5

We are returning visitors to this gorgeous three-bedroom condo. We love the location as it is right across the street from the beach and it is just minutes from excellent dining, water parks, shopping, golf and much more. Our family has grown by one since our last visit, and we love how spacious and comfortable this condo is. We all have and enjoy our own space but can get together for family fun in the family room, on the balcony or out by the pool. It is always as clean as can be, and by my standards, that's CLEAN! Just walking through the doors gives my husband and me an immediate sense of calm and aaaaahhhhh, and we never want to leave. We have been to beaches all down the east coast, and the Grand Strand is certainly one of the most beautiful and is definitely the widest beach with the most room for fun! Thank you for having us back! We look forward to our next visit.

Beautiful condo and beach

  • 5 of 5

My family has been going to Myrtle Beach for many years. We've stayed in very nice hotels and in condos. This was by far the nicest place we've ever stayed. It is extremely clean, beautifully decorated, and is equipped with everything you can think of for full-time living, not just a week at the beach. It is located right across the street from the beach, and you can see the ocean from the covered porch that overlooks the pool. We love this section of the beach which is more upscale than what we call Old Myrtle Beach south of this location. Golfing is great and some of our favorite restaurants are very close by as is Broadway at the Beach and all the major attractions. We will definitely be in touch again and hope to rent this condo for our next visit. Thank you, Larry and Wanda, for sharing your second home with us. We've been spoiled!

Carol Bay Condo Rental

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. Unit was huge and suited our need for 3 bedrooms. The 3 baths were a bonus! The kitchen had everything we needed. The beach was a short walk across the street and we were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and had a great time.
