Overview

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 Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

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

Excellent experience at the property and with the owner...top 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 clothes...so 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!

Clean and comforable beach front condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and comfortable. Owner's were very easy to work with. It was nicely decorated, (however the bathrooms could use a little updating). The beds were very comfortable. We loved the pillows. We liked having TV's in both bedrooms and having a washer/dryer in the condo is a plus. We liked the size of the complex. Not too big, as some high rise beach condos can be. The complex had nice pool areas including a lazy river, which we enjoyed. There is easy access to the beach, which is nice. We took advantage of onsite bar/grill to have a meal. The food was good and priced very reasonably. The condo had some beach chairs and umbrellas for us to use, which is nice, however, we were a little disappointed in not being provided starter shampoo and soap along with dishwasher detergent. Every condo we have stayed at in the past has offered these simple but appreciated items. Also, if we ever come back to Myrtle, we will make sure it is not "Bike Week". Although this complex did not allow motorcycles the neighboring ones do, and the noise was constant 24 hours. So we did not get a lot of sleep. (This is not the fault of the condo, it was just bad timing on our part).
