About Vicki Simmons

I'm Vicki, a retired Gerontologist and my husband Garry is a CPA. We've been real estate investors for more than 30 years, so when I was considering a retirement job several years ago, we purchased our first vacation rental. Our properties are personally managed and devotedly maintained. We're enthusiastically hands on and I love my retirement job! We invite you to indulge yourself... ditch the hotel and enjoy your vacation in chic and stylish comfort instead.

Vicki Simmons purchased this condo in 2011

Why Vicki Simmons chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

I began visiting Myrtle Beach in the 1970's and I've found a lot to love... clean soft-sand beaches and gentle surf, captivating sunrises and sunsets, stellar year-round weather, plus an abundance of excellent restaurants, a wide variety of entertainment, top-rated golf courses, and the best shopping - all wrapped up in warm Southern hospitality. My search for a villa on the ocean led me to Grande Shores, a well-maintained, family-oriented resort situated in an upscale residential neighborhood. The breathtaking views of the SC coast stopped me in my tracks and the courteous staff won me over.

What makes this condo unique

This is our first of 2 vacation properties in Myrtle Beach We're continually renovating and upgrading with style, comfort, and convenience in mind. The balcony overlooks the resort's fabulous rooftop pool deck. Central air/heat means there is NO noisy A/C unit on the balcony. Listen to the waves, enjoy the spectacular view, and never forget that you're at the beach!

Another Spectacular Stay in 934

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I have stayed in this condo several times over the years...and it's the only place we'll stay in Myrtle Beach now. This condo is so well-decorated, maintained, and comfortable. From the spacious rooms to the cozy beds and well-stocked modern kitchen, the owners have obviously gone above and beyond in making sure this place has everything you need...and want! I know they take renting seriously, as I've seen the condo change over the years....new furniture, paint, flooring, etc. We come back and it's always a little different...and somehow even better! The resort is nice as well, though I'm quite certain this is one of..if not...the nicest....room in the place. Stunning views from the master bedroom, living room, and balcony. Sometimes I have a hard time deciding if I even need to leave the room to enjoy the beach. It's THAT relaxing just sitting on the couch and watching the ocean. Rooftop hot tubs were awesome in the evenings, and I actually appreciate that the hotel staff does a great job of keeping it quiet after certain hours. That's actually one more thing I love about this place....having a nice residential street next door means there's not as much craziness up on this northern end of Myrtle. With great restaurants close by and a Fresh Market right across the street...what more could you ask for? I know we'll be back next year! Can't wait.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the complements and I'm pleased that you liked the upgrades! And thanks for taking the time to leave such a very nice, detailed review. I'm certain that it will be helpful for others who might be considering a stay. Relaxation is what vacation is all about and I'm happy to hear that that the condo and the resort came through again.

Outstanding place to vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time we rented this condo for vacation. The location, view, upkeep and helpfulness of Vicki and Garry are truly outstanding. The amenities the hotel offers adds to the experience, e.g. restaurant, four hot tubs, two lazy rivers, two pools and short walk to the beach. Vicki's response time to your booking or questions you might have is fast and timely. I am looking forward to next years stay. I highly recommend this condo for vacation.

Beautiful condo and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

This is the nicest condo I have stayed at in Myrtle Beach. Very clean and beautifully decorated. Location to the beach was great and the view from the condo was lovely. Condo owners give lots of info prior to arrival which is very helpful. We will recommend this condo to others and will definitely rent again.

All there

  • 5 of 5

We had not been to the Myrtle Beach in over 10 years. This was an amazing trip. We loved th views from the balcony, the large condo with 3 bedrooms has so much room and it is beautifully decorated. The homeowner provides such a relaxing atmosphere for you and there are numerous movies, books and games to help you through rainy days. Vicki and Garry provided very helpful lists on restaurants that were a big help since we had not been in the area for so long. They were so great to work with and we are thrilled with our experience there. The resort is very clean and all the folks we met were super. We had some cloudy days but it was one of our best vacations. Recommend this unit to everyone.

You will not be disappointed...

  • 5 of 5

The condo is just as lovely in person as it is in the photos. It is well appointed and tastefully decorated and the pride of ownership is apparent. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding was nicer than you would expect in a rental. There were nice TVs in the living room and all the bedrooms, although they didn't get much use because there were so many other things to do and the weather was too perfect to spend a lot of time indoors! That said, every moment we did spend in the condo was comfortable and enjoyable. Vicki, the owner, was really on top of things and a delight to work with. In a nutshell, I would recommend this rental without hesitation and would gladly stay there again.

Wonderful vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned home to PA after one of the best vacations we ever had! Vicki and Garry were extremely pleasant and easy to deal with and provided us with great area information prior to our arrival and checked in with us after our arrival to ensure everything was to our liking. The condo is beautifully decorated and was sparkling clean. We had everything we needed and then some. The resort was very nice, staff courteous and pool and hot tub areas clean and enjoyable. The location is perfect, we were just steps from the gorgeous beach which was not overly crowded. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we already booked our week for next year :-)
