Guestbook comments from the owner
Just arrived at Out of The Blue at Oceanside Village Surfside Beach S.C. this is our first visit and what a wonderful place, so spacious and spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Steve & Gwen did a wonderful job of decorating the unit everything was well thought out. Located in a nice location convenient to shopping and the beach. Very very nice I don't see how anyone that stays here could leave without having a great time.

Hi, Welcome to our Beach Home 'Out of the Blue'. We are excited to be able to share our wonderful oceanside home with you. We love to travel, golf, relax on the beach, and to spend time with our family and friends. During the summer months we spend a good bit of our time camping in our motorhome. We tell everyone the motorhome is a dog house on wheels. We started camping to spend time with family, but also it is a great way to be able to take our 4 puppies on vacation with us. The 4 girls are our children and we enjoy having them with us.

Gwen & Steve purchased this house in 2011

We chose Myrtle Beach because it is a driveable distance from our home and has a wonderful airport right on the beach for those quick trips when you just don't have time to make the drive. We have been vacationing in Myrtle Beach since 1995 and will be making it our retirement location in our 'golden years.' The area has world class beaches, theaters, restaurants, and active living - all why we chose Myrtle Beach. The biggest draw to us was the wonderful people. Southern Hospitality is alive and well in Myrtle Beach and we have been lucky to make some wonderful friends along the way. We are sure you will meet some of them when you stay at Out of the Blue.

You are just a walk or golf cart ride to the Beach

We used "Out of the Blue" for vacation getaway for 18 people (rented the whole house) which included grandparents (us), children, grandchildren, and a couple of our teenage granddaughters girlfriends. The grandchildren ranged in age from 1 thru 14. We found the house beautiful, in first class up to date shape, very beautifully adorned, well maintained, and with all the amenities that we could ask for. The two golf carts for riding to the beach and to the pools were a real hit and especially enjoyed by the grandchildren. The house is in a nice quiet area and the surroundings are beautiful. The five minute ride to the beach was just perfect. The game room was a real hit, although we spent most of our time at the beach and pools. Gas stations and a supermarket were both located immediately outside the Bermuda Bay complex which came in very handy.The whole family really enjoyed the stay and the grandchildren and children all wished that they could have stayed another week. I worked with Gwen in all of the arrangement setups and she was wonderful to work with.
I would definitely recommed this home to all who are interested in a wonderful vacation stay.

My wife and I took the kids and the extended family to Myrtle recently and absolutely loved this home! I say home because it wasn't like a rental, this place really had that homelike feeling. There is a lot of attention to detail. Steve and Gwen spared no detail on this wonderful home. It was fully stocked except for groceries and personal items. The kids absolutely loved the game room...especially the Fooseball and Pool table. I suffered a many defeats at the hands of my oldest :)
The home is huge with enough room for everyone to spread out. The furnishings are very well thought out and the decorating had a lot of effort put into it.
We had one of the golf carts stop functioning on us at an in opportune time, but one quick call and Steve and Gwen were all over the problem. Broken battery terminal was fixed and returned the next day. We took a day trip to Charleston, so it wasn't an issue at all. Just really pleased and impressed with Steve and Gwen's prompt action.
We have stayed at Bermuda Bay before and Out of the Blue definitely stands out. The rental process and communication were spot on with absolutely no stone left unturned. There were no surprises when we got there and everything was exactly as described. Pictures on VRBO do not even begin to do Out of the Blue justice. This home is gorgeous!!!!
The only complaint we had is that we had to leave :)
Thank you Steve and Gwen for a wonderful and comfortable week away. We would not hesitate at all to stay in one of Steve and Gwen's homes for future trips.

My family of 10, ages 21-57, stayed at Out of the Blue for a week in May. We found the house to be exactly as pictured. It was clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated. The beds were comfy and the golf carts provided easy access to the beach. The kitchen itinerary was helpful in planning meals and we loved that the house was well stocked with beach towels and beach chairs. Renting a vacation home is probably the biggest expense in the budget, but prospective renters can rest assured that their money will be well-spent. We tend to not repeat vacations (too many places in this world to discover), but I would not hesitate to stay here again and have advised other family members to check it out! I also received my deposit money back in a week..record time!

We were very happy with our stay at “Out of the Blue”! The house is very clean, spacious, beautifully decorated and well maintained. The 3 levels (lower, main and lofted bedroom) made it perfect for our family with children who go to bed early and adults who stay up late. We were especially impressed at how well stocked the house is with everything you’d need for a beach vacation. Beach chairs, sand toys, beach towels, umbrellas, coolers are all provided. The kitchen has mostly everything you’d have at home as far as appliances, dishes and cookware (blender, coffee maker, can opener, baking pans, etc.). The community in which the house is part of is very peaceful, and we liked having the amenity options (playground, indoor pool, tennis). Even though we were not beachfront, getting to the beach was easy with the provided golf carts and bikes. Our only advice to future vacationers is that the bunk beds are probably best for children to sleep on (not as comfortable for adults). Overall we loved staying here!

I headed up a group of 12 guys on a golf vacation. All in ages ranging from 35-65 and respected businessmen. The house itself was nice if you don't mind having to go up and down 2 flights of stairs. The golf carts were supposed to be available to us but were locked up with cables. The location was very nice and the condition of the house and it's contents were excellent. Our biggest complaint was that we expected to be on vacation and instead felt like we were supposed to provide a cleaning service. We arrived and the beds were not made. The mattress pads and comforters were on each bed but the sheets and blankets were not. We have to go thru a bag of linens provided by a linen company to find the right sizes for each bed. We then had to make the beds before we could sleep in the beds. When I called about this, I was told that is the way they do it to ensure that each person then knows they have clean sheets. I wouldn't rent from you if I thought you would provide dirty ones! They upon exiting the house we thought we left it in good shape. We did all the dishes and replaced them, we swept the floors and emptied all the trash and even took the trash container to the curb during our stay so it could be serviced. We took all the linens we had to place on our beds and placed them on the washer and dryer in a pile and replace the comforters on all the beds. We replaced all the keys and made sure the house was locked up tight. We found out though that that was not enough. Turns out we were expected to sweep and mop all floors, dust all tables, chairs, etc., bag all linens and make all the beds, clean all mirrors, clean all bathrooms and generally provide an exit cleaning service for them. So $100 of our deposit was kept. Yes, in their defense all of this was in the contract. We just didn't realize we were providing a cleaning service...we thought we were on vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for confirming that the expectations for vacating the home were in the contract. Fortunately, this is the first time we have been presented with a situation where the home was left in a condition that required our weekly transition staff to spend extra time getting the home ready for our next guests. Our entire focus is to make sure our next guest has as great or better time at our home than the previous. The rules and guidelines are established to ensure the satisfaction of each of our guests and to allow for us to meet expectations. We ask that you take a close look at all of the glowing reviews we have received.

For future travelers, a few points of clarification:

1 - If an exit cleaning is included, the only thing we ask is to leave the home as you found it. Yes, we ask that you bag the linens upon departure. While this post suggests that you need to clean and perform the items described, that is not factual. We do, however, charge for excessive cleaning per contract terms below. Leaving chips, crackers, candy in the furniture qualifies. For understanding of future guests, here are the terms of the contract:

"The security deposit shall be refunded within 30 days of the Check-out Date provided no deductions are made due to:
i. damage to the property or furnishings;
ii. dirt or other mess requiring excessive cleaning; or
iii. any other cost incurred by Homeowner due to Guest’s stay.

2 - It is unfortunate that the traveler is now upset about the amount kept from the deposit, because it was he that insisted he pay for the amount that it took to get the home back in shape. The amount retained from this traveler included the cost of a broken pool stick.

3 - The golf cart codes are posted in the home and are available to travelers. While we spoke with this gentleman on the phone a couple of times, he never mentioned access to the carts.

4 - Finally, we do not provide a daily housekeeping service. These gentlemen would benefit from staying in a home that does. While this review indicates discontent, we received a note upon their departure thanking us for a great time and a beautiful home. In the interest of privacy and within the guidelines of VRBO rules, we will not post that email or the photos that showed the conditions of the home.

We assure you, our future guests, that the home has been returned to the condition you expect.

It was our very first experience in renting a "home away from home", and this place is just what our rental was! We felt as though we were truly at home in this 'Out of the Blue' South Carolinian home. We couldn't have asked for more in terms of the atmosphere, amenities, cleanliness, and comfort. Gwen and Steve are so organized. They have thought of everything to make a vacation stay thoroughly enjoyable. Their rental is in a perfect location - with so much to do within the area, and within a reasonable distance for trips to cultural areas farther away. It certainly went above and beyond our expectations! You would not be disappointed if you decided to make this your next "get-away". Thank you so much Gwen and Steve!
