Beach House / Cottage, 3 Bedroom, 3 Full Baths (Sleeps 8) Pool
The Sea Unicorn has been our family home since 1978. It was a simple wooden beach house with an unfinished downstairs. Little by little, my parents added the porches, the fireplaces, laundry room, brick, greenhouse, garage, patios, flowers, trees. Hurricane Hugo tried to take it but the family home stood firm, even the greenhouse, well the frame anyway. Dad built it with 4x4's, notched, and huge 6' bolts, and poured concrete. Mom said, 'whats your father building now?'. 'A green house for you.' 'What with all those 4x4s and those huge bolts?' ''He said he wanted to make sure it was still here if a Hurricane blew through'. And so it did. The house lost the downstairs, most of the roof, and we had to gut the rest, but we built back with the same love and devotion, with updates, but in keeping with the character and nostalgia of our family memories. Our green row boat is the very boat my Dad purchased when he arrived and used himself for fishing. It ended up on the other side of the lake in Hurricane Hugo, but we found it and brought it home, and there it remains, in Daddy's spot by the Lake. We invite you to share the quiet, peaceful pleasure of our lake with its wildlife on one side, the sound and the feel of the ocean on the other, and a few minutes walk up one of the widest beaches in Myrtle, the State Park. We are sure you will enjoy our family home as much as we do.

Why Jin chose Long Bay Estates
We love our quiet, relaxing neighborhood. We feel we have everything; the ocean is to the front and the lake is on the back, the State park is at the end of the road. Its our little piece of paradise, hidden from the mainstream, yet still centrally located to everything, restaurants, amusements, golf.
What makes this House unique
For years Long Bay was called Myrtle Beach's best kept secret. This exclusive little neighborhood is small and secluded, hard to see from the main road, hidden in the trees , by the sea, and on a lake. Its peaceful, relaxing, remote feeling, yet close to everything. And the half acre lot is large enough for games, sports, fun. It is your own little park.

Short weekend vacation
Nothing fancy but super clean. I can appreciate clean. 😊
Everything was exactly as presented. Great location. Pool was very nice. The kids loved the row boat. The house had lots of extras such as books, games, pool and ocean toys, etc. I definitely recommend this property. Great for families!
Great beach and fun pool
This is an older property that was ground floor, which was great for my 80 year old husband and for hauling in supplies. The window unit air conditioning was not so great because it's a little loud and not too efficient, but that certainly didn't ruin our stay. The beach was close and excellent. My young teenage grandchildren and my daughter really enjoyed the pool with its slide. We didn't take the opportunity to use the hot tub or to try the lake in back with the paddle boat, but it was the usual hot Myrtle Beach-in-August temp, so perhaps had we been there in another season we would have enjoyed those. The kitchen is small, but well equipped and there was an endless supply of towels available for all the things needed at the beach. The neighborhood was wonderful and quiet, the lawn available as needed for our dog whom we really wanted to be able to have with us. All and all, an excellent fit for us for our admittedly short stay.
Overall we enjoyed our stay
We believe there to be some confusion in the wording of this listing. While the property lists “sleeps eight” when we booked and stated there were six of us coming day one and two more would arrive later in the week if at all...we were charged an ‘additional guest fee’. When we questioned the owner during booking that maybe we misunderstood and thought the listing said sleeps 8, she confirmed it does sleep 8 and then added 2 additional guests fees would be charged but refunded if they did not attend. Forgive us if we’re not understanding this, when we read ‘sleeps 8’ and total attendance doesn’t go over 8, why are we being charged an additional guest fee? We felt like this was falsely advertised. Our additional guest fee was refunded after we requested the return when it did not process with the security deposit return 3 weeks after check-out.
Overall we did enjoy our stay.
Property Really needs a Handy Man!
This property would be perfectly ideal if they had a Handy Man to repair a lot small issues and a good purging of accumulated stuff from over the many years wouldn’t hurt either!!!
We had an amazing experience at this property. Clean and if we had any questions we were always helped right away. Location was less then 5 minutes from the beach. Pool was clean and she even has some spices in the kitchen for us to use. The area was very friendly. Definitely will be coming back to this location if we are in myrtle beach again .
Thank you so much we are so glad you enjoyed your stay - please visit us any time

We are close to so much , yet hidden from chaos and traffic, nessled quietly among the trees, on the lake, by the ocean. We are our own little park.
