Property type house

About the property

2 seperate living areas... one inside and the other next to the pool

Freestanding home (not a duplex). Private pool (looks like a peanut), three floor Elevator(its fun to be lazy), full kitchen and AWESOME 2nd outdoor granite kitchen with covered living area which is great for entertaining while you watch the kids swim in the (peanut) pool. The beach and the mini pizza shop can be seen from the top floor. Each room has a television.

RATES: Our June- August summer rates are all-inclusive. Bring your own towels; towels are not provided.

Many people ask how close the house is to the beach. So, the answer is.... With a strong arm, you could probably throw a frizbee down rainbow and hit Ocean Blvd (it's been tested).

This truly is the most accommodating and Fun beach house on the south end. We have had many people stop by the house and say that they wish they had heard about 122 Rainbow before they booked their other home. You will enjoy!

Questions may be answered via email but telephone conversation is required for booking.

OFF PEAK: Total is Rate + $250 for cleaning & linen package. Towels not provided because of the invention of mascara.

To reserve, we ask for just $750 down to hold the property which can be done online. One or two other payments will follow which can be done online via the eCheck option. No credit cards accepted. We require a refundable $500 damage deposit in a SEPERATE check when you arrive which is cashed only in the event of unresolved damage.

Dirty and Disappointed. NO STARS AT ALL. ZERO. I cannot get the 1 Star to go away !,

  • 1 of 5

"The Shoddiest House in Myrtle Beach". DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY. The first item on our grocery list was BLEACH WIPES. Now that sums it up .

The pictures on-line were totally deceiving. The minute we walked into the outside patio/ kitchen area I knew it was bad INSIDE & OUTSIDE. The outside dishwasher was dirty, rusted. The Wine Cooler broken , dirty, junk inside of it. The outside furniture cushions so so dirty and stained. We would not even sit on them . We found an old pair of children's shorts buried behind a cushion. The yard by the picnic table full of litter and trash. The 2 grills still full of ashes from the previous guests, even found old hotdog still on the grill. The outside Refrigerator dirty, not wiped out. The Pool dirty, full of grit, leaves. My husband cleaned pool all week with the big Net. We thought we would hang out in the Outside area all week, not so. Too dirty and gross. The pool area chairs stained black from dirt, outside elements.

Now the INSIDE . The minute we walked into the Kitchen ,,,, I was stunned , so disappointed and really sad. The Kitchen table was dirty, food stains. The kitchen Windows had handprints all over them. The door to the deck stained, dirty. Patio furniture cushions stained, sand all over them. The cupboards dirty, grime, grease. I had to Bleach all the Countertops, clean the pots/ Pans cupboard with bleach wipes. The Stove door so greasy on inside and between the glass. The kitchen blinds dirty, dusty. The kitchen floor , all the floors swept,,,, but if you walked w bare feet then your feet were black and dirty. Laundry area dusty, lint everywhere, dirty. The steps to upstairs... SO STAINED , DIRTY, JUST HORRIBLE TO LOOK AT EVERYDAY. The upmost worst was kitchen overhead light.... So black and full of DEAD BUGS. So so gross and unsanitary !!!!! I truly wanted to cry. I have rented Beach Houses in Ocean Isle for 9 years and NEVER, EVER had such a dirty, poorly maintained, shoddy, disappointing house. Really put a damper on the whole Vacation for everyone in my family.

Now , the rental Manager was there on arrival. We reviewed all our issues. He called the Cleaning people( so we think ). He kept repeating that we are " complaining, complaing". He was negative, I said this this is obvious dirtiness and visible to the naked eye. And that it is unacceptable. He said the Cleaning people would return,,,,, when my husband came back from the Beach .... The Manager was cleaning. Please Respond. THANKS.

Nice house, not taken care of

  • 3 of 5

The house is really nice. The layout is probably one of the nicer ones we've stayed in and we come every year. But, we paid over $5k to stay here with slightly different expectations than what we got. First off, NONE of the sheets were clean like they should have been for "linens provided" and the floors were a filthy mess, don't walk around barefoot, your feet will be BLACK! One of the sets of sheets smelled like a wet dog had been laying on the bed for a few days and the carpet smelled like puke. Secondly, and probably most disappointing was the pool. I am not sure what was wrong with it but we woke up every morning with half the water gone and had to refill....every day! The house beautiful but it is not taken care of at all. For the money we paid and the money I know is earned by renting this house I would suggest the owner does a little upkeep. There is literally ZERO excuse for the house being in the mess it was in as I know the prior renters paid for a cleaning fee. With all that being said, it's a great house with a sloppy owner who evidently doesn't check up on his investments. I think the price should be considerably lower. Just be careful, they couldn't even take the time to snap some updated pictures!!

Perfect for us!

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful home that is perfect for a large group. We had 10 adults, 2 children and 2 babies staying and at no time did it seem cramped. There was a large common area, and it was nice to have so many bedrooms (and a bathroom for each one!) We had one member that used a walker, but the elevator and the lay-out of the house made everything easily accessible. We were an easy walk to the beach and could reach the water in minutes. The second-level porch was a perfect place to sit outside, and we enjoyed hours out there listening to the sound of the waves. The only area of improvement we could suggest would be cleanliness. There were some spots, such as under cushions and couches, that hadn't been swept or vacuumed lately. All in all, we had a wonderful time, and we would definitely come back again!

Amazing wedding weekend after a hurricane

  • 5 of 5

I can't stress more at how great the property manager Robert and the owner Stephen are. We booked the house for our wedding weekend and small beach wedding. The only problem is that a hurricane came ashore 4 days before we were supposed to arrive. We were incredibly lucky that we apparently booked the most hurricane proof and flood resistant property in all of Garden City. Robert worked very hard to clean up the property for us, and everything went as planned. It really is the coolest house in the Myrtle Beach area. It's absolutely perfect for outdoor entertaining, big space, outdoor kitchen/bar, great pool area, exterior bathroom, plenty of parking. Also a huge bonus for when 10 adults have to get ready at the same time....every bedroom has it's own bathroom! Trust me, book this house and you will have a great vacation.

We LOVED this house!!!! The location, layout, and cleanliness were fantastic. Steve was great to work with and made everything easy. We used the outdoor seating area daily and the bathroom was convenient. Being an adult only trip it was only warm enough for us one day to use the pool so didn't get much use out of it but it was nice and clean, it would be great for a family with kids. All of the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. The only negative things were I could not find a broom to sweep the floor (there was a vacuum) and the elevator was a little confusing to use at first (probably just operator error). Overall this was a GREAT vacation in a GREAT house. We really enjoyed our stay at The Coolest House in Myrtle Beach. Thanks for the everything!

Without a doubt, this is the most private beach house in the area, yet only 1/2 block to the water. The home is tucked away in the enormous lot and surrounded by trees but the ocean can be seen from the third floor. We are within walking distance to the central Garden City area with shopping, restaurants and the famous fishing pier.
