About Mark Straffen

I've lived in Cleveland, Ohio, all my life. I'm a Captain on the Cleveland Fire Dept. and been on the department for twenty five years. I have three sons between the ages of 21-27. I've been visiting Myrtle Beach for over twenty years now and have seen the tremendous growth the city has experienced since my first visit. It's been a vacation destination for my family since 1990 and I believe we have visited Myrtle Beach every year, at least once, if not twice each year, with the exception of one year in the past twenty-one years. Family memories and photos from our trips will last a lifetime and a tradition, I hope, my sons will continue as they begin their families.

Mark Straffen purchased this condo in 2010

Why Mark Straffen chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

During my years visiting the area I vacation in all areas of Myrtle Beach. I always ending up coming back to this area of the city. I believe this area of Myrtle Beach has always been more upscale and less hectic than other areas. This specific location has such a beautiful and unobstructed view looking north really sold me on this location. No other resorts blocking my panoramic views of the ocean for miles and just a quiet peaceful area.

What makes this condo unique

The original dream for this resort was to build something unique, upscale, and first class and I believe this was achieved with the Horizon at 77th. No cookie cutter design or 'condotels' here. Everything from the climate controlled hallways, to the attention to detail, even in the common areas, unique designs of the condos, room contents, and color choices, and the overall appearance of the building itself shows the vision the developer had when designing this resort and truly making it a premier resort in Myrtle Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the second time we have stayed at this condo. We love the location because it is at the beach and in a nice residential area away from the busy downtown area of "hotel row". The building is clean and neat and has lots of on site parking. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The condo itself is clean, well supplied and in excellent condition. Mark, the owner, is wonderful to deal with. He is readily available to answer any questions or solve any issues. Our deposit refund cheque was returned to us promptly. We highly recommend this condo and intend to book it again soon.

Clean, Well Appointed

  • 5 of 5

410 was very nice. It had everything we needed to spend a relaxing week. We enjoyed the view, the kitchenette, and the Netflix. It was a quiet week too as we seemed to be the only people in the building.

The best Condo at Myrtle Beach.

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the nicest place we have ever stayed at Myrtle Beach and we have bee going there for many, many years. Mark was so accomodating and very responsive if we had any questions. The condo has everything that you need for a great stay. The location of the property was also a plus.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and was very nervous and skeptical but Mark reassured us that all would be fine. Everything, Mark had put in about the place was accurate. We had an amazing time and would stay here again when we return to Myrtle Beach. It is only feet away from beach. The pool and lazy river were great. We even used the sister property's grassy area to hang out between pool and beach. The place had plenty of room for the 3 of us along with a gorgeous view and balcony. My son even commented on how comfortable the pull out sofa bed in the living area was. The bed in the bedroom is enormous. There was plenty of storage along with the place having all you needed as far as linens, washer & dryer, dishes, silverware, pots and pans. We even had purchased a few extras that we didn't need to like detergent etc and left them for the next guests to use. We had a few questions and Mark was very quick with response. We loved the keyless entry and found that was the best thing of not having to worry about carrying keys around along with being able to use the safe too. The place is conveniently located to grocery stores, shopping, beach, and the Cal Ripken baseball fields. The place was very neat and modern. The bathtub/shower were spacious. The rocking/recliner chair was very comfortable. Thanks again Mark for making our vacation a very relaxing and worry free one. We would definitely tell whomever asked to Stay Here!

Resort Convenience and Comforts of Home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here as we escaped the cold spring in Ohio. The programmable key code lock made it easy to go to the pools and beach without pockets/purse for the key. The kitchen has great appliances and comes well stocked - including wine glasses. The balcony view was perfect for my morning coffee and one conference call. The beach was so close we walked out to see the sunrise and then went back to bed. The location was convenient for short drives to shopping (2 outlet malls) and entertainment at Broadway at the Beach and dinner on the pier at the Boardwalk. The TV has WiFi so we logged into our streaming account and caught up on our shows one night.
