About Vicki Simmons

I'm a retired Gerontologist and my husband Garry is a CPA. We have one daughter and we live in Richmond, VA. I was considering a "retirement job" a few years ago, so after 30+ years of investing in real estate, Garry and I decided to become vacation rental owners. We personally manage and devotedly maintain our beach properties. 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, golf courses, entertainment, and shopping - all wrapped up in warm Southern hospitality. In 2011, I traded my snow skis for flip flops and headed to Myrtle Beach in search of a villa on the ocean. I discovered Grande Shores - a well-maintained, family-oriented resort located in an upscale residential neighborhood away from all the downtown traffic and noise. The breathtaking views of the SC coast stopped me in my tracks and the courteous staff won me over. Now I'm proud to be a Grande Shores homeowner.

What makes this condo unique

This is our first of 2 vacation properties in Myrtle Beach. It was a typical boring hotel/condo with outdated decor that had to go. We're continually renovating and upgrading and our goal is to class the place up 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!

Great spacious condo!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Myrtle Beach for my daughters dance competition. This condo was the perfect fit for our family of 2 adults and 4 kids. Plenty of room for all and the view of the beach is amazing. We cannot wait to stay here again! Vickie is always fast to respond and super informative! Truly a perfect place for any family.

Paradise! This is the condo you are looking for!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Vicki, is incredible and went so far beyond what anyone has ever done to help our stay to be perfect. We were unfamiliar with Myrtle Beach and Vicki sent us so much info on things to do, restaurants, and everything the resort had to offer. She even told us what to pack and what was already provided. We had 6 adults and two toddlers under the age of 2, and there was plenty of space in the common areas for us to all be together. The view from the windows and balcony are incredible- it was so cool to see shoreline for many miles...I liked it better than any beach front views I've seen, actually. The beds were so very comfy and my husband is so picky about where he sleeps and we slept like rocks!! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! We can't wait to come back!

Very good

  • 5 of 5

The room was well taken care of and there were beach toys and chairs available for us to use. Vicki was very accommodating when we lost a key and gave us lots of information for the local area and things to do. We had a view of the beach and rooftop pool. If we come back to myrtle Beach we would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful condo/Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of staying in this condo the week of June 4th. The unit is simply lovely. We have never stayed at a VRBO property that is as well equipped and maintained as this property is. Every attention to detail has been paid and nothing is overlooked. The beds were comfortable and the linens are excellent quality. More than ample dishes, pans, etc. are provided. Even the hand soaps, paper products and some kitchen basics are furnished. The unit is very clean and pride in ownership is obvious. The property itself is also very nice. The staff is friendly and hard working. The view is excellent and the beach was fabulous. Thank you for a lovely vacation!
