About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our ocean-view beachfront property is like your home away from home! We visited many condos in Myrtle Beach before we settled on this one, and then completely transformed it from a standard 'hotel room' to a lovely comfortable vacation home. In January 2012, the kitchen was transformed into a cook's dream with exotic italian granite countertops and updated cabinets. All the beds are extremely comfortable with new pillow-top mattresses and lovely 100% cotton bedding. We put in new dvd players, and flat screen TVs in the living area and master. The carpet, tile, paint and furnishings are also up-to-date and new. From the stackable washer and dryer, to the wireless internet and Time-Warner cable, all the amenities of home are at your finger-tips. We truly put a lot of love and attention into our unit and have spent many happy days here. We truly hope you enjoy your visit and return to stay with us in the future!

About Karen Sturkie

Chris and Karen love real estate and own numerous rental homes. This is our first of two condos in Myrtle Beach, and by far our favorite! We love to travel and dream about investing in properties all over the US and the world, making each property a little extension of ourselves and an enjoyable place to share with others! "Love Our Second Home!"

Karen Sturkie purchased this condo in 2008

Why Karen Sturkie chose Myrtle Beach

We have been visiting Myrtle Beach for many years, and since we only live 4 hours away, decided we wanted to buy a beach vacation home. We searched for many months before settling on Beach Colony. We love the family-friendly atmosphere as well as the quiet, laid back location. In minutes you can be at the 'strip' or Broadway at the Beach, yet it's a quick trip back to our 'home-away-from-home.' Beach Colony is a unique little 'gem' in the heart of a residential district of Myrtle Beach.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit used to look like a 'typical' hotel condo with out-dated furnishing and fixtures. We completely renovated it with comfort and convenience in mind. The beds are a dream to sleep in, and the furniture is comfortable and stylish. In January of 2012, we updated the kitchen with exotic italian granite countertops, updated cabinets, and a breakfast bar. All appliances, carpet and tile are new, so you have no worries. Bring your laptop and enjoy the wireless internet access, while sipping a cup of coffee or a glass of wine on the balcony... this is living!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for helping to make our stay so pleasant. The condo was perfect with so many little extras. We had a wonderful week and will definitely come back!

Just what we needed for a girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well maintained condo. Spacious and clean. We left behind a couple of beach chairs for the next folks!

Owner's Response: We love our thoughtful guests who enjoy our condo and then leave things they think the next guest will need. Our future guests especially appreciate beach chairs since they are harder to bring with them! Many Thanks!

Nice condo, loud resort

  • 3 of 5

This condo is very nice and comfortable. The kids loved the pools and beach. Our only issue was the noise from the pools, loud music, and other guests shouting off their balconies at midnight. This condo also sits across from the entrance to The Dunes, so there is constant noise from the road. This wasn't the peaceful beach getaway we'd hoped for. The condo was very nice though.

Owner's Response: Hi there -- Thanks so much for your review. Yes, the Beach Colony complex is very well cared for--the pools are great, and it is in an area of the beach that is much less crowded. Regarding the condo complex next door... when we picked Beach Colony, we selected it because there are only 3 condo buildings in that entire mile of the beach and the rest of the properties are multi-million dollar houses. If you stay further south toward the Pavilion, there are many buildings on every side, many more people, and much more noise - especially in July (which is a very busy time everywhere in Myrtle Beach.) Please know how pleased we are that you enjoyed the condo though--we love it too!

Excellent experience at the property and with the notch!!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better experience! The owner, Karen, is amazing! Excellent customer service! I had an issue with my second payment not processing yet a hold on my credit card...Karen was VERY understanding and patient while we waited for the hold on my credit card to clear before attempting that payment again....I was incredibly grateful for her grace and understanding. When we arrived I called her twice and never once did she seem inconvenienced...she was nothing kind and helpful!! The condo was perfect! The interior is beautiful, clean, and tastefully decorated...extremely nice! Karen has the kitchen stocked with anything and everything you need as well as plenty of sheets, blankets and towels. I REALLY appreciated a washer and dryer in the unit...I hate going home with dirty towels and a big plus! The resort the condo is located in is very family friendly and clean...I appreciated the staff that were continually working (throughout the resort) to maintain cleanliness! Staff was polite and courteous and always asking what we needed. They were extremely conscientious about keeping high tragic areas clean and safe...constantly mopping wet areas and vacuuming. Security seemed like a priority and I appreciated the resort staffs vigilance in that area! The beach area in front of the resort was HUGE! Never felt cramped or overcrowded...plenty of room to enjoy the beach without feeling like people were on top of you! The rental/resort is conveniently located...2 miles from Sea Captains House...a local restaurant with a beautiful view, about 20 minutes from Crabby Mikes...another fun restaurant with huge buffet and all you can eat crab legs and 20 minutes from the outlets...great shopping! Overall a top notch vacation rental...superior owner with excellent customer service, excellent resort, and beautiful beach!! Highly recommended!

Enjoyable beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Myrtle Beach. The condo was very nice, clean, attractively decorated and contained everything we needed and more! The beach was one of the cleanest we have visited, well cared for and the resort was beautiful! The grandchildren especially enjoyed cooling off in the pool. The owners of the condo were very helpful and quick to respond to our inquiries. Should we visit Myrtle Beach again, we would definitely choose this same condo!
