Overview

Myrtle Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Our incredible condo/vacation home is located on the 2nd floor right in the heart of the resort. You will feel the comfort and luxury a soon as you enter the property of Island Vista.

'Island Vista' was built in 2006 with all first class amenities and is tastefully decorated in a 'British West Indies' flare. Known as 'Island Vista', our condo has a true resort feel and is located in a quiet residential neighborhood known as the 'GOLDEN MILE'. Located on over 500 feet of sandy beach, Island Vista is situated on one of the least crowded areas in Myrtle Beach. You will be near the action and away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. As soon as we walked on the property of Island Vista, we knew this was the place we would call home.

Our condo is very spacious (50% larger than the typical Myrtle Beach Suite) and has all the upscale interior appointments such as granite counter tops, tray ceilings, tile flooring & a Jacuzzi tub you should expect. Our home is DIRECT oceanfront and offers spectacular ocean views from the living room and kitchen area as well as the master bedroom. It also includes a large living room and a dining room for family dinners and each bedroom is equipped with a 32' LCD flat panel TV and a private bath. The large master bath also offers granite counter tops, double vanities and a large Jacuzzi tub. And don’t forget we have a “FULL SIZED” washer and dryer in our condo for your convenience.

We have all the amenities at our resort and the area is just perfect for your family. And since the weather is wonderful all year long, whether you’re here for a family vacation, a winter retreat, a romantic getaway, a men's golf retreat or even a girl’s weekend getaway, “Anytime is a Good Time” to visit Myrtle Beach. But even if you want to just hang out, 'Island Vista's' onsite restaurant, Tiki hut bar and grill, wonderful pool complex, hot tubs, tanning lawn and the list goes on and on, make it the perfect getaway!!

Even though our kitchen is wonderful and totally stocked with everything you need, you might want to visit the full service upscale restaurant in our resort, 'The Cypress Room” which has one of the best breakfasts on the Strand. It is open for breakfast and dinner daily, so enjoy the oceanfront dining at its best. This restaurant opened in the original Sea Island 30 years ago and has created a following of locals. It is recognized as one of the best on the Grand Strand.

When you find yourself lying in the sun around one of the 3 pools, you can also enjoy the “Tiki Hut Bar and Grill”, a favorite of ours featuring frozen drinks, cocktails and casual food at reasonable prices. We hope you decide to choose our home away from home for your vacation. I’m confident you will start building family traditions and memories of your own in our beach haven. Our home offers elegant comfort, extra room for relaxing and a view of the beach that will last in your hearts long after your vacation is over. We know you will enjoy your time and hope to welcome you as a valued guest that visits with us every year.

About Gary Persinger

My wife Lisa and I were married in April of 2007 on the property of our condo at Island Vista. We have 2 children, Michael age 20 and Morgan age 17. We love to spend quality time together at the beach as a family. I am a general contractor in the Baltimore area and Lisa is a physician's assistant at a multi-specialty healthcare group specializing in primary care.

Gary Persinger purchased this condo in 2006

Why Gary Persinger chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

My wife and I have been vacationing in Myrtle Beach for the past 20 years and we were finally able to purchase a place of our own. After an exhausting search we stumbled upon 'Island Vista'. Our condo was built in 2006 with all first class amenities and is tastefully decorated in a 'British West Indies' flare. Known as 'Island Vista', our condo has a true resort feel and is located in a quiet residential neighborhood known as the 'GOLDEN MILE'. Located on over 500 feet of sandy beach, Island Vista is situated on one of the least crowded areas in Myrtle Beach. You will be near the action and away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. As soon as we walked on the property of Island Vista, we knew this was the place we would call home.

What makes this condo unique

Even during the busiest weeks in Myrtle Beach like the 4th of July week, you will be amazed that it really does not feel that crowded. It is truly a place to relax and rejuvenate.

Island Vista July 4-11, 2009

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and comfortable, beautifully decorated, and the views are wonderful. The owners have supplied all the you need for a great vacation. I would highly recommend this unit for families, or people who love the beach. The beach is beautiful there.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We have stay at the Island Vista before but the unit was great. Beaches and grounds are well maintained. Staff if very friendly. We will be back again!

Could not ask for better weather hot and humid but that is why we come to the ocean!!!!!!'

Golf was an experience, sudden liquid sunshine shower but it cooled it off enough to play.

Fantastic Vacation with lasting family memories

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at Gary's Condo. The unit was just like the last time- Absolutely Fantastic!

The Condo is right on the Ocean, with multiple pools located on site. The unit was clean, spacious and very accommodating for our family.

Gary is so easy to deal with, and he answers any questions that might come up in an extremely fast manner.

Our family would recommend staying at Gary's Condo to everyone- you won't be disappointed.

We hope to stay there again someday in the future.

Thanks for letting us share your home. This vacation produced many memorable family moments that we will always cherish.

Sincerely,

Brian Silkowski

Fantastic Owner to Work With

  • 5 of 5

My family and I decided to book this condo for our upcoming vacation in September. Due to work and scheduling issues, we ended up having to cancel. We were so bummed, and I was nervous to have to tell Gary, the owner. Gary was so nice and understanding. He gave us a complete refund and helped me with all of my questions. He was very quick to respond to all of my messages.

We will definitely book again in the near future! Thanks again, Gary, for all of your help!

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 7 enjoyed our time at Gary's place. The location is fantastic. It could not be closer to the beach and is located in an area that is less crowded. I took a long walk up the beach one day and could not believe how crowded it was compared to where Island Vista is. Everything was as expected with the unit and we were all very comfortable. The only recommended changes I would make are improving the wifi and the pull out sofa. The wifi was spotty throughout our stay and the pull out needs a new mattress. These were not significant issues. We were in for a baseball tournament at the Ripken Experience and Island Vista was about 10 min from the fields so the location was perfect. Gary was very responsive with any questions I had. All in all a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Jeff. Thank you for notifying me about the Wi-Fi. That is provided by the HOA, but I have a tech working with the current guest to see if we can improve it. It has always worked pretty well, but he said they could be getting some interference. We are always updating things in the condo each year. We just had 2 new Lazy Boy chairs and an ottoman delivered this week. I never sleep on the pull out sofa, but thank you for that advice and we will update that as well. We are considering whether to change out the sofa, but we will update the mattress soon in the meantime. We usually have smaller groups that have not used the pullout. We take any suggestions to heart as we want all our guests to have the best accommodations available.!

Beautiful and clean accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin! Gary and Lisa's Island Vista condo was absolutely beautiful and spacious for our group of 6! From the moment we walked in, we were all in awe of how nice, large, and clean it was as well as what a spectacular ocean view we had. It definitely felt like home during our one week stay. The multi level parking allowed for easy access to our condo without having to constantly use the elevator, and the keyless entry was a big plus. We enjoyed every morning sitting on the large balcony overlooking the ocean. The Island Vista employees were all very friendly, and they worked very hard keeping the resort in tip top shape. We ordered pizza from the onsite restaurant one night and it was some of the best pizza we've had. The condo location was perfect and close to everything we chose to do. We especially loved the fact that the beaches were not crowded in this particular area and the lifeguard was stationed right in front of the condo. The use of the daily beach chairs/umbrella on the beach was fantastic! It was a perfect week weather-wise, and we couldn't have asked for better weather. We will definitely be coming back to this condo in the future!
