About Bruce & Barb Gwin

We are originally from PA and moved to SC several years ago after college. We are blessed with four children, one which lives and works in Myrtle Beach after going to Coastal Carolina University.

Bruce & Barb Gwin purchased this studio in 2005

Why Bruce & Barb Gwin chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

We like the south end of Myrtle Beach best because it isn't as congested, but close to many great attractions like The Market Common. The beach is wide and you don't have to fight for a spot on the beach!

What makes this studio unique

We have enjoyed watching the sun rise coming up over the ocean while sitting on the balcony drinking coffee. Looking for shells as we walk to Springmaid Pier for ice cream and to see what fisherman have caught. Relaxing at the beach!

Very Clean with an Excellent view

  • 5 of 5

Room is as described! Very clean and inviting. 2 of the nights we stayed there the resort was sold out. We had no problem with loud neighbors. Next time we go back to Myrtle Beach we will certainly stay here! The owner was easy to work with.

The property had a great view!! It was the perfect amount of space for two people. They had a fridge and microwave which was nice for our leftovers. I would definitely stay here again!

A dream vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This was actually my second stay at this lovely unit. I rented it for the month of October 2015. I had never stayed more than a week at a time at the beach and to be able to stay for a month was like a dream come true. The pictures are so accurate. The furnishings, the cleanliness, and the VIEW! There was nothing I would change. In fact, this stay played a big part in my deciding to follow a lifelong dream. I moved to Surfside Beach, SC on April 4, 2016. I will definitely recommend this unit to friends and family and anyone wanting a perfect place to stay!

We had a great time at Myrtle Beach. The condo was exactly as advertised and very clean. Great place for a couples getaway and very close in proximity to lots of attractions. We had an excellent vacation and looking forward to staying here again if we're ever back in the area. My only complaint was there was 5 college fraternities staying in the condo as well (extremely loud) and very crowded. I feel this should have been brought to our attention while booking. Thankfully they checked out the next morning so it wasn't too bad. Overall experience was pretty good.

Outstanding studio condo. Everything was just as pictured.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend stay in this studio condo. Although sadly it did rain for a majority of our trip, we were fortunate enough to have this cozy condo to stay in. Everything we needed was there waiting on us from plenty of towels, to DVDs & books, plates and cups, and we had an outstanding view that we took full advantage of on more than one occasion. The condo being located on the third floor helped us get access to and from the beach with ease, and I'm already looking forward to planning another trip to this condo!

Nice room, GREAT view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a nice time staying in this room. This was our second visit to this building, the first to this unit. Checking in was easy, no problems at all. The room was clean and comfy. It was just as described in the listing. The bed was very soft, yet comfortable. Our favorite part was the balcony! The view was great and we loved listening to the waves! The kitchenette was nice and stocked with basic items. We used the coffee pot every morning.

There is nothing negative to say about this unit. My only little suggestion to travelers is bring an extra roll of toilet paper if you are staying for a few days. There was a partial roll on the holder and no extras provided.

We enjoyed our stay and would stay again!
