About Randy Dale

We purchased this beach house to have a place to vacation with our children and extended family. We wanted them to have experiences like we did at the beach when we were growing up; a safe place where they could feel free to explore, make friends from across the country and just be kids.

Randy Dale purchased this house in 2005

Why Randy Dale chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

Our house is situated close to the beach, the activities and the pool areas. The Security at Ocean Lakes is excellent and we feel very comfortable letting our teen, pre-teen and friends move about the property without having to escort them to each activity. It gives them a feeling of accomplishment and independence. It lets us enjoy a vacation and not just an extension of home activities moved to a different location.

What makes this house unique

Ground level deck with seating and a porch swing allows adults the freedom to entertain, put food on the grill and watch the children play. The main level deck and outdoor teak furniture extends the living area so families can enjoy being outdoors while eating or entertaining friends and family.

Clean and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been going on vacation at Ocean Lakes for many years. We really enjoyed staying at the Dale's beach house. It was very clean and had plenty of room for our family. The house is near the pool and beach so you do not need a golf cart. I highly recommend this house for families that want to stay at Ocean Lakes and be near all the amenities.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. Our family of 9 (4 adults and 5 kids) stayed here for a week and had no problems. The location is great and the owners were easy to work with. House was clean and linens provided were nice. Loved the swing. The provided chairs and umbrella set up daily on the beach was also great!

Wonderful vacation...despite the rainy days!

  • 5 of 5

The home was centrally located. Linen service was wonderful. We received much more towels than we needed for our stay. We were 2 small blocks from the beach, one small block from the water park. We had a wonderful stay and there were many more essentials in the kitchen than we have ever had before. I suggest not buying anything until you get there and do an inventory because chances are there are things there that you aren't expecting (seasonings, oil, sugar, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, etc). Wonderful vacation. We would stay there again!

Owner's Response: The E Family were great guests and their review was spot on. Thank you for summing up the details for future renters and please do stay with us in the future. You were wonderful to work with and I appreciate the departing condition of the beach house. For Future Owners that Rent: They are STERLING RENTERS! I give them five stars.

The house was a great fit for my family, we enjoyed the beach and the grandkids loved the pool area.

The only problem we experienced was someone stole 2 Yeti coolers from the lion wet deck area on Friday. We felt comfortable all week that no one would bother our belongings down there but someone had some sticky fingers - very expensive coolers.

Owner's Response: I am please that our Beach House lived up to your expectations, met your vacation needs and was a great fit for your family. I understand your disappointment with the loss of your Yeti Coolers and the impact to your vacation experience. Ocean Lakes is one of the most secure beach properties with constant on-site security. I have taken steps to replace the coolers at my expense.

Dale's Beach House provided a second honeymoon in our 27-year marriage.

  • 5 of 5

When my husband was deployed to coastal South Carolina merely days after Hurricane Matthew plowed his way up the coast, we had to find a house to rent within hours. Thankfully, HomeAway saved the day. Dale's Beach House could not have been more perfect. and our 2-month stay there was one of the most refreshing times in our 27 years of marriage.

Having never used Home Away before, we relied on the reviews of former tenants who had enjoyed the home. Their positive words about Randy Dale, his willingness to accommodate, and his gracious help in making guests feel welcome and taken care of convinced us this was the home for us. Well, that, and the fact the house is steps away from the ocean.

We have not one complaint about the house. It was clean, there was wifi, the neighborhood was quiet (we were there in off season) and most of all, Randy worked with us to make this a positive experience for us.

We woke up every morning and carried our coffee to the porch with a view of the ocean, watching the sunrise and thanking God for the beauty around us. At night, we walked to the water's edge and watched the moon rise, feeling the restorative peace and calm from the pounding surf.

Thank you, Randy Dale, for this beautiful home away from home.

Owner's Response: Fred and Naomi G. were great guests! They and their family would be welcome to return to our beach house as they took great care of the house and went to great lengths to communicate over their extended stay. If you want renters that are the epitome of "Great Guests", accommodate Fred and Naomi.

Best Vacation Beach House we ever stayed in!! Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we had at The Dale House!! Everything was perfect! Randy was such a pleasure to work with from start to finish, you can tell how much pride he has in his house. There was never a problem with communication, always got right back to us with any questions. The house was the perfect layout and location for us, it had such a beautiful view of the beach and ocean and the perfect spot to get to everything. We rented the golf cart for the week because we were traveling with other families for softball and they were scattered around ocean lakes but the house is so perfectly located you really do not need to rent one. We loved that the house was everything we expected and more from the pictures. This house was spacious, clean and had everything you could possibly need to make a memorable family vacation. We are hoping to make it back to Ocean Lakes next year and will definitely stay no where else but The Dale House!! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Randy for sharing your beach house with us being such a pleasure to work with!
