|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
Classic beach house that has been fully updated, without losing the charm of the Ocean Drive style. From the wood paneled walls to the large bedrooms and sitting areas, you will love the nostalgic, yet comfortable feeling you get from staying in Sand-Bar.
Just on the third row of houses from the beach, it is a short walk to plant yourself on one of the least crowded stretches of beach in North Myrtle. In the Tilghman section, you are surrounded by private homes and your view to the ocean is not obstructed by high rise condo buildings nor do you have to squeeze into a tiny spot on the beach. Spread your blanket and chairs, relax and watch the waves roll in.
Main Street Ocean Drive is just 7 blocks away - a great walk on a moonlit night after enjoying the amusement rides or arcade downtown. Or, take a short bike ride to grab lunch or do some shopping. Sand-Bar is conveniently nestled in a quaint section of the beach ,yet close to everything. But, be warned, when you leave the house, you will yearn for the sanctuary and quiet of Sand-Bar.
Inside the house you will find two big screen tv's, two separate family areas a fully stocked kitchen, a sun deck for relaxing, a covered deck downstairs and two enclosed porches. Two of the bedrooms are large enough to sleep a family of four in each, with one king bed and one queen bed in each. Now that's a big bedroom! All new pillow top mattresses added in 2016.
Sand-Bar has been lovingly cared for by a single owner family since it was built in 1954. Close attention has been paid to comfort and style since we use the house all but a few weeks a year when it is available for rent.
No Student Rentals.
7 adults stayed here for a 4 day weekend in September. While many Ocean Drive amusements and restaurants are already closed for the season, this house is situated so close to the beach that the lack of the amusement park didn't matter. There is a slight ocean view from the upstairs enclosed porch and the walk to the beach is quick and easy - practically half a block! The 7th street beach access has stairs as well as a ramp, which was an added bonus for our beach cart (please note we brought a beach cart with us, there is not one at the beach house.)
Our group has stayed in vacation homes in Myrtle, Florida, Texas, and the Mid-West and we have stayed in Luxury Condos to Beach Bungalows... and across all of our travels I can say that we all had the best night's sleep at the Sand Bar. The beds were amazingly comfortable and since many of us take this trip to not only be together it is also to rest and relax and a good night's sleep is one of the things we are looking for! Bringing linens can be a chore, although we did do that; there are a few linen rental companies around as well that will outfit this house for under $100.
The pool is larger than it looks in the photos and the seats around the edges were wonderful! Even with no pool heat, the temp of the pool in mid-September was great!
This is one of my favorite areas of Myrtle Beach if you, like I, enjoy a less crowded, residential, low-rise area. There are two grocery stores to choose from less than 10 minutes away. There is a great little diner beside the Bi Lo as well as on Main Street (get there early!) On the corner of Main, where you turn to head to the house, there is a small gift shop and package store.
A few notes for future renters! ---------
--The main coffee pot takes cone shaped filters.
--Hand soap is provided for the bathrooms, but there is no dish soap for the kitchen sink.
--There are no kitchen items such as foil, salt and pepper, oil, etc. provided. We left a salt and pepper there for the next renter.
--There *is* great tupperware provided!
--There are no beach items provided such as a cart, cooler, or umbrella. We did not find it to be a big deal but we do like to know in advance for our packing or renting purposes so I wanted to share for others.
--The inside stairs are wide and steep with banisters on both sides as well as stair treads.
We will be back!!
This home has been well taken care of and is a very short walk to the beach. It has plenty of room and it also had everything that we had been told and it also had all the comforts of home. Plenty of room for the family to stay busy with various activities and also close to anything from Ocean drive to Cherry grove. Beds were comfortable and our dog felt right at home. We certainly look forward to our next stay here and one last thing, our son enjoyed the newly opened private pool and said it was great but it was still a little cold, April 7,8. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a nice relaxing and quiet vacation.
Property is very close to the beach great location, lots of room. It is an old home but very comfortable. The only thing is one of the queen beds felt like you would roll off, and the steps are very small. But we would stay again. :)
