About Cindy

We have enjoyed Myrtle Beach over the years. We started coming during the rally events in May and Oct, then decided we would like a place of our own to stay. We live and work in the Research Triangle/N. Raleigh area of NC. We have now decided we would like to personally share our experience with others and maintain a quality product with with great value. This is our little home away from home and we would like you to enjoy it too.

Cindy purchased this condo in 2006

Why Cindy chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

Our journey through the coastal SC region with a fantastic realtor led us to Compass Cove. We looked at golfing communities, a fishing village, a less busy town south of Myrtle Beach, and N. Myrtle/Ocean Drive area and knowing we would like to rent it out for vacation spot, the best place was Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort. This is one of the best equipped, evolving, well maintained, vacation destinations for our buck with a family feel, but ideal for couples getaway, or adults get together for reunions, and golf groups. There is an on site concierge and golfing office. There is ongoing maintenance year round whether its the flower gardens, the beautiful pool art, early morning tidying of the property with little to no noise. Come see this beautiful resort, but before you do, check us out, we have maintained a rating of 28 and lower for value and amenities since we have been here. Not bad for a 30 + year old property.* Update *-We are so happy to report all three entities which make up Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort will all be modeled after the Pinnacle Building with new paint, awnings and architectural features that will make the property have a new cohesive look. Lots of new things in store for this year.

What makes this condo unique

Our decision to purchase in the beautiful Pinnacle Tower of Compass Cove was the units that were available at the time. The decor was newly done as they were offered for sale. We liked the N. facing end unit as there is a window in the bedroom. This is a quiet part of the building. The furnishings are tropical in style and the view is the best. We are direct oceanfront. New improvements to the building for those who have stayed or not is the fountain is gone in the garage. There is now Compass Joe, that sells pastries and Starbucks coffee. Computer desks can be found in the Pinnacle building in the lobby area. Unload in the same space and there is a glassed in area that now connects the two ends of the tower and automatic doors for convenience. Garage has been paved with pavers and looks much more clean and up to date. Our unit has had some changes that are different from the décor in the other units. We have a great cleaning company that keeps everything clean and fresh for your vacation visit.

Great location but a bit of a tired unit in a tired property.

  • 3 of 5

First off, Cindy was absolutely wonderful. She was prompt, professional and helpful. Couldn't have asked for better. Now the unit is in a great location, at the end of the building. So it's quieter (somewhat) and more private. However, it is tired. We understand there is some remodeling going on this week (mid-May '17), however. So it may be much better very shortly. The unit was sufficient for my wife and I (along with our golden doodle). But four people would have been a stretch given how small the bathroom is and the overall size of the unit. The appliances and kitchen furnishings were fine though there is no dishwasher. So if you're planning to eat in a bunch, plan to wash every meal as there is no room for dirties to accumulate. For the cost, I felt like we got our money's worth. So this is not a complaint review at all. Just go with reasonably expectations and you'll be fine.

Amazing views and nice room

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary, Cindy was more than accommodating and ensured that all of our needs were taken care of and even helped us find local restaurants and places to shop! The room was very clean and up to date and everything was in good repair. There is an ample amount of dishes so that you can easily save some money by cooking your own food too. This was an amazing stay and we will definitely be back!

Excellent!

  • 4 of 5

The unit itself was perfect for the two of us, once we became used to the "galley" kitchen and subsequent traffic between the living and bedroom when one was cooking a meal. As mentioned by Ms. Flowers the refrigerator requires an update, but that would be the only observation kitchen wise, and we only became aware of the reclining feature of the couch on the Wednesday - silly us. The view, as promised, outstanding.

However, access to the restaurant in Pinnacle Tower was abysmal as on our first night there was standing room only, and on our return to the suite to place a "pick up" order found out that had to be done in person as they would not accept an order by 'phone. Secondly. flyers left by a Pizza restaurant, our second choice, were impossible to contact as telephones had been disconnected - not a fault of Ms. Flowers, but disconcerting none the less. The evening was not a total disaster as we found the Angus Steak and Seafood restaurant which we highly recommend.

A great week away from the snow and cold of home, but "Stella's" impact on the Myrtle Beach weather was interesting, but we still managed to see what we had planned, although beach walking was curtailed.

All in all a great week, and Cindy's ongoing assistance whilst there was both cheerfully and professionally tendered.

The Myrtle Beach area has 60 miles of coastline and although there are some activities that are outside of 15 minutes drive, the area has so much to offer, no matter what you want to do. Something or nothing, your choice.

Highway 17/Kings Highway is a coastal route N-S, so this is a good area to drive to decide. Pick up some of the local maps and guide books that are at most shopping centers and find the nearest AAA office and secure maps and advice prior to your trip. One of our favorite places to go is to a local restaurant Angelo's that serves THE best steaks, Italian buffet and classic Italian dishes. Angelo's is within a short walk. A drive to the Market Common will provide you with shopping choices, Piggly Wiggly, cinema, yoga, bookstore and restaurants. It is in the location of the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base on Farrow Parkway. If you like to provide your socialized pooch with a doggy park, there is one near Market Common in Seagate Village neighborhood, just across from Myrtle Beach State Park.

Go down to the south on 17 towards Murrell's Inlet and Surfside Beach. Murrell's Inlet has a marshwalk that includes restaurants on the water, there is a pier you can stroll and watch the boating traffic. Horseback riding is one of the activities I have seen on the beach in the winter months only.

At the resort, there is shuffleboard, cornhole, a life sized chess board and lots of water activities for stroking or soaking. Lazy rivers, pools and jacuzzi's are indoors and out and can make a rainy day lots of fun. When the sun is shining, spend a day at the beach or the kid pools. A short drive north on Ocean is the Family Kingdom Fun Park.(seasonal) Its part amusements, part waterpark. Various miniture golf locations are within a short distance and at Compass Cove, there is an onsite golfing office on the second floor of the Schooner building, along with concierge services in the lobby area of Pinnacle Tower. Compass Cove offers supervised Kids Club in the summer for minimal or no fee. Compass Rose is the place for a breakfast buffet that is substantial and covers all the bases, with fresh fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, juices, eggs and toast to order, if you like, and the selection of breakfast meats varies daily. You can even make your own waffles! You may also order ala carte, for the non buffet people. The hosts do a wonderful job of keeping things stocked and clean. Seattle's Best coffee is proudly served. This is in a buffet price of around $10. On the 2nd floor of the Pinnacle Building, the Crow's Nest is a fast food choice for lunch or dinner snacking. They offer salads and seafood, pizza and sandwiches. All spirits are offered with specials daily and live entertainment varies, along with karaoke. Go sit on the Crow's Nest patio and have lunch or just enjoy a drink and the sun. It is beachfront so you get a panoramic view up and down the coast. There are beautiful flowers growing the in pots on the patio. There are umbrellas so you won't have to sit directly in the sun.
