About Erika Leipold

We live in Charlotte, NC, and purchased our oceanfront condo at Sea Watch Resort with the intent of providing future guests a great place to vacation and enjoy the Myrtle Beach area and all it had to offer. We've enjoyed updating it to its current, unique 'palm' beach look, and hope that our guests feel that they can enjoy a home away from home at the beach when they opt to rent our unit!

Erika Leipold purchased this condo in 2007

Why Erika Leipold chose South Carolina

After viewing quite a few other properties, we selected this particular unit in Sea Watch Resort's South Tower due to it's abundance of windows and beautiful views! It's location was a definite plus...within a mile of the N. Myrtle Beach boundary, and the convenience of so many restaurants and activites.

What makes this condo unique

On site restaurant, game & activity room, the convenient market store (summer months), the variety of pools, spas and the lazy many to choose from...and of course, the beach within just a few steps of the pools. Having a security team on property is also very reassuring...the property always feels safe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Dear Erika & Horst,

How generous of you to donate this wonderful 'home away from home' to benefit Akron Children's Hospital Ronald McDonald House. I was thrilled for my bid to win at the golf classic sponsored by the Akron JWCC.

"The well-stocked kitchen and clean, well appointed, attractive rooms made us so comfortable.

"We made good use of the many pools and hot tubs. Greeting the sunrise, either walking the beach or on the nicely situated balcony, became a 'must'.

"We enjoyed Brookgreen Gardens and walked Huntington Beach. Took in arts & crafts show at Atalaya.

"In Murrel's Inlet, we ate at Creek Ratz & Drun ken Jacks. Close by Sea Watch, we enjoyed Chesapeke Bay & Chestnutt Hill (restaurants).

"We take home MANY HAPPY memories! Thank you!"

Relaxing Stay for my Family

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo! We appreciated the little things, like having a grocery cart and plenty of luggage carts close to the parking area. Very clean and comfortable. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Hi Shannon & Family, We appreciate your review and your kind words about our condo. It is very important to us that our guests feel at home, but with the benefit of being at the beach! We hope to hear from you in the future whenever your plans take you to the Myrtle Beach area. Best regards, Erika & Horst

Love, love love this unit!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far one of the best of units to stay in while at Sea Watch. We have rented through VRBO for 15 years. We always check in to see if this unit is available before any other. Owners are always available and have answered any questions or concerns. Thank you for decorating your unit to feel like home.

Renter Beware!!!

  • 1 of 5

We recently rented this unit and the experience was nothing but trouble! The owners were very slow to respond to our request and inquiries. They overcharged us after quoting a lower price and then charged us a credit card fee that was not disclosed prior to charging our credit card. We have used VRBO before and it was a good experience with no hassle or hidden fees, so I have to assume this is the owners doing. We had to wait weeks for our refundable deposit to be returned and then the amount was wrong causing more trouble and tracking the owners down to get our money back.

The unit itself was overpriced considering the plumbing didn't work very well and it was outdated and rundown compared to other units we saw on the property. It's also directly above a pool so noise was an issue.

Overall, I am very dissatisfied with the whole experience and I will never rent this unit or from these owners again.

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at the Sea Watch for the past 12 years and this was the first time we rented through VRBO and a home owner. This unit is beautifully decorated, spacious, with amazing views of the many pools and hot tubs, ponds and of course most importantly the ocean! Since the balcony juts out from the building there is a nice breeze. We enjoyed eating lunch and dinner on the balcony when we were not otherwise on the beach or eating out. There are many windows and 2 glass doors to access the spacious balcony which allowed much light to enter the condo, which we loved! The beds were more comfortable than any other condo we have stayed out there. And we loved the convenience of not having to check in and constantly making sure we had our key! The kitchen was nicely stocked. And my girls especially loved drinking their iced tea or soda from the large margarita style glasses that were decorated with the condo theme of palm trees. The couch in the living room was very comfortable as was the corner chair and ottoman. Erika, was very lovely to speak with and very organized and helpful. We will definitely be booking our next vacation at the Sea Watch through them!

Beach Combers

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, clean unit. Had everything we needed. Great access to beach and pools. Unit was nicely decorated, beds very comfortable, large balcony, kitchen well stocked with all the cooking essentials. Entire complex is well kept and maintained and visible security patrolling is an added bonus. Very nice owners, a pleasure to work with and talk to. Very prompt in answering emails and phone calls. Our family had a wonderful time at the beach and enjoyed the pools, hot tubs and lazy river. Signed up for some of the of the resort activities, too. Lots of fun! Can't wait to go back! Thank you for a great trip for our family.

The condo was beautiful, very comfortable and clean and the view from the balcony was outstanding. Erika and Horst were very accommodating and informative. Very nice golf courses were plentiful and within range of the condo. We enjoyed our stay very much. Look forward to returning in the future.
