About Bruce and Lori Foraker

Why Bruce and Lori Foraker chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

Our family loves Myrtle Beach with literally thousands of activities not to mention a great beach so there is something for everyone. However, we don't like all the congestion that you typically find at Myrtle Beach. When we found the Beach Colony Resort we knew we found our place at the beach. Beach Colony has all the amenities you could ever want and is located right on the beach. It's location is near everything Myrtle Beach has to offer but in a quiet setting and is perfect for our family. At Beach Colony we always feel safe and comfortable and always have a great time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo we rented was AWESOME! It was very clean! There was lots of items such as children's books, toys, etc. that is wonderful to have. This was our second year to stay and we will definitely stay again

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in the condo for five days and it was exactly as pictured. I loved the location which is on the quieter side but close to most everything. We enjoyed the hot tubs, pools and lazy river plus the beach is right there! The breakfast buffet in the downstairs eating area was really good and not too costly. I was thankful for the umbrella and beach chairs and the nice lady from Ohio who dug us a hole to plant the umbrella in, it saved me from lugging one from home.

This was my third time renting from home away and by far the best condo for the money. They really take care of everything and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a great quiet place to stay. The owners sent a lot of emails with information that was so welcome and check in couldn't have been any easier. The only things I didn't care for was the parking garage which was really tight and the strange way to get around with the elevators but other than that it was good.

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The process of renting someone else's condo that you've never met is a nerve wrecking thing to do. There's always the thought of it being a scam is always in the back of your mind. But the welcoming email from Bruce definitely put us at ease. The unit looks just like the pictures. It was a very clean and well organized unit. Everything we forgot we didn't need bc they had it in the unit. The looks on my kids faces when they say the beach toys was priceless, bc we forgot theirs. It was a very relaxing vacation and the constant communication from Bruce made it 1000 times easier. I will recommend this unit to anyone and everyone I know.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at 617 Beach Colony Resort. The place was plenty spacious for two adults and two boys (10 and 8). The beach amenities were fabulous: beach umbrella, chairs, toys, and boogie boards. We enjoyed them thoroughly. The location is convenient to all the night time activities. Just an overall enjoyable stay.

Very clean and nice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo the end of July. The condo was very clean and nice. Very close walk to the pools and Beach. The only thing we would do differently is drive a smaller vehicle parking is not easy for oversized vehicles you could only Park on first level of parking garage. Overall we would definitely come back again.

Excellent location, beautifully upgraded, spacious room

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Beach Colony many times. This unit is by far one of the nicest ones!! The kitchen was well-equipped, the bedrooms were spacious, the furnishings were comfortable and the bathrooms had plenty of room for all our teenager's cosmetics. I love that the owners had chairs and beach toys for us to use.

I know others people have complained about the elevators, but we used the stairs often. Stairs are better for you anyway!

We will be planning another trip for next year!
