About the property

2 BR 2 Bath with ocean view across Waccamaw from the beach, sleeps 6

Relax on our deck, see the ocean, and hear the waves breaking. Our home is located in Oceanside Village (a private, family-oriented, gated community) in Surfside Beach between the Surfside and Garden City Piers. We have a spacious, covered and painted deck providing cool breezes with an ocean view where you can use the gas grill and enjoy outdoor dining on the two tables with chairs. Inside (in 2013), we added wainscoting, window casements, new light fixtures, fresh paint, and some new plumbing fixtures. In 2014 we installed laminate flooring throughout the home, and completely remodeled the king bedroom's private bathroom to include a shower/bathtub combination and new sink.

Two bedrooms (one king and one queen), and a pull out full size sofa accomodates six comfortably. The king bedroom has a private bathroom (remodeled in 2014), and separate entrance leading to a secluded deck. The closet and dresser offer ample storage. It also has a 32in flat screen TV with cable. The second bedroom has a queen bed, large dresser, and a 24in flat screen TV with cable. Its walk-in closet has plenty of space with a stack washer and dryer, ironing board, and iron.

The kitchen features a refrigerator with ice maker (added in 2015), dishwasher, disposal, flat surface stove and oven, a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, and all cookware including dishes and utensils. The kitchen also has a large eat-in bar with three stools for casual dining and a separate dining room with an ocean view that seats six.

The spacious living room has a love seat, recliner, and a comfortable sofa which pulls out into a full size bed. There is a 42in flat screen TV with cable, DVD player, stereo, and free WIFI internet connection for the house. There are ceiling fans throughout.

The concrete parking area below can accommodate 4 vehicles easily. There is a private outdoor shower (cold only). Borrow a beach chair from the outdoor bin and have fun on the beach - which is less than a minute's walk.

We love pets, but we have a strict NO PETS policy for the entire property (inside, outside, decks, parking area, and planted/landscape areas). A golf cart is not included with the home.

Upon arrival, visit the Oceanside Village Office if you would like access to oceanfront parking in the lot beside the Conch Cafe, golf cart rental, or use of the fitness center (separate fees apply for these features). OSV does not allow non-resident golf carts.

You can enjoy complementary use of the indoor (heated) and outdoor pools, a children's water park with a lounge cooling area, lighted tennis courts, volleyball courts, a basketball court, a baseball field, bocce and horseshoe courts, a park/playground area, and many fishing lakes around the 180-acre property. Oceanside Village is a short drive north to Market Common, Myrtle Beach, and other area attractions or south to Murrell's Inlet and Pawley's Island for great seafood, nightlife, and specialty shops.

Area attractions include over 100 golf courses - Tupelo Bay is just across Hwy 17 from Oceanside Village. Miniature golf courses are close, too. Fish from one of the two nearby piers (Surfside and Garden City), go off shore on a charter out of Murrell's Inlet, or surf fish with a SC fishing license. There are many more water activities to choose from including kayaking, parasailing, jet skiing, banana boating, and several different water tours.

Abundant shopping is available within a short drive at Inlet Square Mall, Market Common, Coastal Grand Mall, Barefoot Landing, or Broadway at the Beach.

Visit the official Myrtle Beach tourism website for great vacation information.

About William Thrift

We grew up in South Carolina and have always loved the beach. Surfside Beach and Oceanside Village have been home to many friends and family and we call this our second home.

William Thrift purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why William Thrift chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

Lark Be A Lady is the culmination of a dream for us to have a beach home, especially a short walk from the sand. Oceanside Village is a pleasant, quiet, and safe community which welcomes residents and guests.

What makes this bungalow unique

This beach house offers all the comforts of home. Our favorite spot, which we are sure will be yours too, is our great deck where we take our morning coffee, have lunch and dinner, entertain guests, and enjoy alone time just the two of us.

You may feel more comfortable bringing your own bed linens. However, if you would like to use our linens, we require you to launder them and leave them in the same condition as you found them - for no additional charge. If our housekeeping service has to launder them, there will be a fee deducted from the security deposit.

Kitchen and dish towels are provided - we ask that you launder them and leave them in the basket under the sink upon departure.

We do not provide personal or beach towels.

Great Property, walk to beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property in February 2017 and loved it. As previous owners in Oceanside Village, this was a wonderful trip down memory lane for us. The home was clean, modern and decorated in cheerful beach designs. There was more than adequate kitchen equipment, local area information, beach chairs - just a very comfortable place to be.

Stayed twice this summer, like it !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed twice in the Bungalow this summer: first week of July and first week of August. We really liked it.

Owner is very responsive and addresses any issues/concerns (we could not find hair dryer during second stay for example) within a day.

It is walking distance to the beach, less than 5 minutes even if you are as slow as a turtle. Beach itself is very clean and nice.

Not much attractions within walking distance(though there is a nice restaurant on the beach right across the road) so less people and more quite overall, a major plus for us.

BBQ on open terrace with an ocean sight is another plus.

Will definitely consider it for the next summer. Was even thinking not to review and keep the place to myself.

Nice place to stay in Myrtle Beach.

  • 4 of 5

Our place was clean, filled with everything you would need in the kitchen. It was close enough to the beach to walk everyday. We enjoyed our stay very much. I would stay there if I go to Myrtle Beach again. Nice time.

We absolutely loved our stay at Lark Be A Lady! The updates were nice and the owners were wonderful to work with. We've stayed at Oceanside Village for many years and this was our favorite by far. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us and we look forward to staying again soon!
