A truly relaxing experience awaits you at the Island Vista.


We also rent an umbrella/cabana and two chairs from the beach service. They will set these up for you each morning on the beach. This is a FREE service to our guests.

DO YOU HAVE SMALL CHILDREN? WE MAKE TRAVEL EASIER! ASK ABOUT OUR AMENITIES. We guarantee that we are the most child friendly unit at the Island Vista. You don't have to bring a thing. We have everything from a Baby Beach tent, pack n play, high chair and a baby monitor to a cabinet full of educational toys. We can even email you the list of all our amenities. We have it all!

Our home features three luxurious bedroom suites tastefully decorated with a Tropical British West Indies flare. Our home is DIRECT oceanfront and offers spectacular views of the blue Atlantic. It has beautiful interior appointments such as granite counter tops, a fully stocked kitchen, tray ceilings, tile flooring & a Jacuzzi tub. It also includes a large living room for family dinners and each bedroom is equipped with a 32' LCD flat panel TV, DVD player and a private bath. A spacious master bedroom has direct access to the oceanfront balcony. The large master bath also offers granite counter tops, double vanities and a large Jacuzzi tub.

Whether you are planning a romantic getaway, family vacation, golf getaway, reunion, meeting or conference, you will be sure to find our home will suit your needs.

The best part about staying at the Island Vista...the location. The Island Vista was built 8 years ago in the middle of a high end residential neighborhood. The advantage to this is that even when the hotel is at maximum capacity the beach in front of the hotel and to either side is wide open and spacious.

Imagine yourself receiving a massage on the beach or dancing to live reggae music under the stars, barefoot of course! (Seasonal)

Have a little work to do? Bring your laptop if you must, but no need to neglect your tan; the complimentary wireless internet is resort-wide. You can even work directly on the beach!

NOTE: Our unit has been completely repainted and redecorated using warm relaxing colors. We have also added new Tommy Bahama and Pottery Barn bedding, towels, linens and stainless accessories in the kitchen. Lots of nice decorator touches. Each bedroom has been equipped with a 32' LCD Flat panel TV's and DVD players, including a BLU RAY in the living room.

Have sweet dreams on the nice king size mattress in the Master Bedroom. This unit looks amazing!

Our unit is located on the 11th Floor with unobstructed views of the beautiful blue Atlantic.

We have four Tommy Bahama beach chairs waiting to be sat in on the beach. We also have plenty of boardgames, videos and sand toys for our guests to use while enjoying the beautiful beach. We have tried to think of it all. With two young children we have our unit packed with fun things to do. We welcome our guests to use it all.

SATURDAY - SATURDAY RENTALS ONLY FROM MAY to AUGUST! 5 NIGHT MINIMUM STAY REQUIRED! Exceptions during holidays and for special events.



No smoking in unit OR BALCONY! We cannot stress this enough. See/email us for our policy.

About Karla

My husband, John, is a consultant and we live in a quaint little town in IN. We have an 5 year old son, and a daughter who is 10 and they love spending all their vacations at the Island Vista. We welcome you to our home away from home. We come to the beach at least 4 times a year and we have enough baby items and childrens activities to keep our kids entertained the entire week. We want to be able to step in the door and have everything there ready for us to use.

Karla purchased this condo in 2010

Why Karla chose Myrtle Beach

My husband is from a family of 9 children and grew up on the beautiful beaches of Myrtle Beach. He always talked about how much he enjoyed spending every morning on the beach when he was younger. Our daughter is now following in her father's footsteps, begging to go to the beach the second she wakes up in the morning. When we were deciding where we would like to purchase a vacation home there was no doubt in our mind that the Island Vista was the place. We enjoyed staying here on our vacation's home to visit my husband's family and thought this would be the perfect place. We hope you enjoy staying at our 'Home Away from Home'. We strive to make this the best place you can stay at the beach.

What makes this condo unique

The Island Vista has a lot to offer when it comes to activities for children of all ages. It has an enclosed kid's indoor play area featuring Waterfalls, a 200 foot Lazy River and a Splash Pool. Even if you are coming to stay with us in the Winter the kids will have lots of fun playing in the water. Outside you will find two additional pools and two spa tubs.

A Tanning Lawn is conveniently located adjacent to the pool complex and is the perfect location to enjoy the combination of warm sun and cool ocean breezes while the grass massages your bare feet! Summer picnics, family get-togethers, and many other activities are a favorite here. The Spa is located next to the Tanning Lawn and provides wonderful beachfront massages. Have your choice of massages in an outdoor cabana at the dunes and let the sounds of the Atlantic surf wash your worries away. (This is a seasonal option and is weather permitting)

Dining at the Island Vista will be easy because you will never have to leave the resort to find many dining option. During your fun at the pools or beach, head to the poolside Tiki Bar for lunch, dinner and of course refreshing cocktails (Seasonal) or have in-room pizza delivery (made fast and fresh on site). While staying with us you must make a trip to the Cypress Room for Award Winning Southern Cuisine and family friendly dining year round. Enjoy their scrumptious sweet potato pancakes all while taking in the wonderful views of the ocean. The pancakes alone make it worth the trip.

The Island Vista also offers a state of the art oceanfront fitness center offering equipment including stationary bikes, treadmills, cardio machines and weight stations. Even though you will be working out, you can still take in the views of the ocean as well as the enclosed pool area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Karla - we're home and I wanted to send you a quick note. Your unit was perfect!! You thought of everything when you furnished it - extras like the mixer, crockpot, lots of extra blankets and towels, etc. and having the kids plates and utensils was great! The living room furniture was so comfortable - well, everything was comfortable - it definitely felt like home from the first night!! Loved the new recliner too!

When we were packing to go home, I heard my grandson say to Mommy "but I love it here!" He so didn't want to leave!! None of us did! And we loved Myrtle Beach! There are so many things to do, we barely scratched the surface! We especially liked Broadway at the Beach".

The Island Vista was great and in such a wonderful area. You made a great choice for a vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Frequent stayers at Island Vista. Most positive rental experience with a great condo and the beach chairs and umbrella were a plus. Kids and my wife enjoyed the pool and we love the keypad for the room. Staff was pleasant but certainly on SC time. Can't wait to come back.

We were very impressed with our stay. Karla and her husband take excellent care of the condo. I have rented vacation houses and condos for many years and I have never felt so at home as I did here. The view from our condo was AMAZING!!!! The condo is updated and has everything you could want to enjoy the beach pool as well as make meals and play family games. Would love to rent this condo again next year!!!!
