Guestbook comments from the owner

Another great week with our entire family at your condo. Finding shark teeth was the goal of the week and grandsons are so happy with their necklaces. (Thanks to the work done at The Gay Dolphin). Both boys enjoyed practicing hitting skills @ The Dug Out at 1121 3rd Ave. South. The culmination was a Friday nite's game watching the Pelicans win 6-3. Thanks for the memories.

Best condo ever!

  • 5 of 5

Seriously - this was the greatest condo ever! The views were amazing - we sat out there for hours every day. Primo sunrise watching! The balcony offered beautiful beach views and some of the parking lots, which were nice for people watching. Couldn't ask for any better.

Kathy was amazing to rent from. Any issues were taken care of immediately and she was very kind about it. Anything you could want was in the unit. It really did feel like you moved in. Made it very hard to leave!

We never had an issue with parking, but people did drive a little too recklessly for my taste in the "main" parking garage, so I would recommend the overflow one. There were prime times when the elevators were very busy, but it was usually around mealtimes so you knew when to expect it.

Listen to Kathy's beach tips! She provided us with a lot of useful information.

We had quite a few adults and one child stay. It was ok with the number we had an because we were all siblings and significant others, but I wouldn't really recommend more than 6 adults + kiddos.

I admit, when I read the reviews and saw they were all five star, I wasn't sure if this would be too good to be true. But honestly, I can say this condo was probably my favorite place of all the places I've ever stayed (including my own beach condo!!). 10/10, would recommend to anyone. Seriously.

Owner's Response: I'm thoroughly delighted that you and your family enjoyed our condo so much! So totally agree about the time you can spend on the balcony watching everything on the beach. We love making our renters feel at home and strive to provide you with all the necessities you might find in your own home. Keeping our place in top condition is our goal and if there is a concern or need for a repair, we take action immediately. I'm happy that the beach tips were helpful. I try to include everything a renter might need to know about the complex, our unit, restaurants, shopping and activities. Yes, there are times when the parking deck is just on "overload" with folks entering and departing and that is why I recommended in the beach tips and through emails that once you get your car unloaded, that there are times when it is just easier to park in the overflow deck; especially during season. Our condo will accommodate ten people and I agree on your comment regarding the number of adults. Any time I have a request for a large number of adults I do confirm that they think they will be comfortable with the accommodations. We are better suited for a combination of adults and children. PLEASE join us again and it was so nice of you to take the time to write such a remarkable review and to state that it was your favorite place thus far. In fact, I love being there myself as I feel so relaxed and removed from all the "pressures" of home! To me, it is a great place to stay while vacationing in Myrtle Beach! See you again next year, I hope! Book early as summer dates get reserved in January and February!!

One Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great and just as it appeared in the photos. It was wonderful to have use of beach chairs, an umbrella, and a cart, it made going to the beach so easy. Kathy was so nice to work with and keeping us informed on everything.

The condo was beautiful and stocked with essentials also great views of the ocean from the balconies. I would definitely recommend this condo!

Beautiful Ocean View condo in EXCELLENT condition

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks this past June and it was absolutely wonderful! The photos are exactly as the condo is. It's meticulously maintained, very CLEAN, beds and pillows so comfortable, w/d in unit, sheets and linens provided for! Certainly helped to lessen the packing required! It was so nice to have use of her beach cart, chairs and umbrella too! Beautiful Ocean views from the balcony and Kathy, wow, her hospitality is like nothing I've seen before! I felt like she was an aunt of mine, so helpful, accommodating, honest and sincere. Kathy's special touches and open communication through-out the renting process and up through the end of our stay really helped to make the experience a wonderful one. We have many memories shared here, we have been going to Ocean City Md for 25+ years, but we will likely start staying here every year moving forward because it was truly one of the best vacations we've ever had at the beach! Thanks for everything Kathy! Highly Recommend you will not be disappointed!

Owner's Response: You and your family were certainly amazing people to work with and I'm thrilled you loved your accommodations at Myrtle Beach! My husband and I do care about our condo and take pride in keeping it well maintained. I appreciate the compliment about my helpfulness and honesty. I have to credit my mom for the guidance she gave her children as she strongly believed in showing respect and being kind to others. Following in her footsteps is something I try to focus on as she's an amazing lady. Thank you again for being such fabulous renters and we look forward to your return. Yes, Myrtle Beach has more activities to offer than you have time for!

Lovely Ocean View Condo in EXCELLENT condition

  • 5 of 5

The photos of the unit is what first took my attention for renting here. I'm so thrilled that I found this unit and Kathy! Planning a trip to Myrtle Beach for the 1st time, for a family of 7, was daunting [we've been going to Ocean City, MD for 25 years] but Kathy was so incredibly helpful, honest and easy to reach, emailing me back within hours and calling me too. It was so pleasant. Kathy's hospitality is like nothing I've seen before. It truly adds to the experience topped with a beautiful CLEAN condo. The condo is meticulously maintained, the beds and pillows are so comfortable and everything being provided really helped cut down on our packing! With Beautiful ocean views, easy access to the beach, so many amenities within the condominium of Sand Dunes and Myrtle Beach activities we will likely start coming down here every year from now on to rent her unit! Highly Recommend you will not be disappointed!

Breathtaking View and Very accommodating

  • 5 of 5

We had the most AMAZING stay! The owners are wonderful to work with! I am in love with the view this code offers!!! I set my alarm daily to take sunrise pics. I stayed with a 3 year old and a 5 month old and the owner even helped arrange for me to have baby necessities, such as a stroller & pac and play. The condo includes everything you could possibly need for your stay. I had absolutely no complaints. Everything was clean. I especially loved having a washer and dryer in the unit, this was extremely helpful with two little children. Very easy access to the beach, basically go down the elevator and you're on the beach! Convenience store, restaurant, spa and more all on property. I can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure helping you with this rental and you were such a lovely person to assist. I'm glad I was able to help you obtain items for the baby. Don't you just love that sunrise as you look up the coast into North Carolina? It is amazing from our 18th floor. We think we have a wonderful cleaner and she thrives to keep our condo very clean for us and our guests. And of course, we stay on top of things ourselves making sure the condo is in excellent shape. It is wonderful that we can frequently use our condo since we are only 3 1/2 hours away. Please join us again and thank you again for this lovely review. Respectfully, Kathy

Treated like Royalty with all the anemities

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our trip to the beach. The Smith's condo is out of this world. Kathy is the nicest person and is so courteous. She made sure everything in the condo was perfect for our visit. The condo was very clean and amazingly inviting as our home away from home. She advertised that the carpet, furniture, refrigerator and mattresses were all new. Everything was beautiful and she also took the time to check in with us to verify that we were satisfied with our accommodations. We loved how she decorated the condo with a beautiful beach theme which made the atmosphere so relaxing! Essentials such as laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid and trash bags, etc. were supplied so we did not have to make a trip to the store which lightened our grocery list astronomically! The view from the living area and balcony was so enlightening and to hear the sounds of the ocean waves was utopic! Fortunately the weather was perfect during our January visit. The sunrises were spectacular and watching the seagulls along with and evening cocktail made our visit very special! We took these few days just for relaxing and relax we certainly did! A cart with chairs, cooler and umbrella were also provided for our use at the beach! We look so very forward to returning in the future! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home at the beach and we really felt like royalty! We already miss the beach and your beautiful condo!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the compliment about how courteous I was. I think it is important for people to always try their best to come across as caring and I do make every effort to make my guests feel comfortable. I loved making our condo have that feel of the beach and I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the decor and your stay. It is always great to find beautiful January days at the beach and I'm so happy that you had those kinds of days. Please come again.
