                        Our wonderful family gifted us last Christmas with a long stay in Myrtle Beach. Kaye and I have rented many condos in the area for more than three decades. We agree that our October vacation in 2012 has been the best EVER. The owners are charming and accomodating. The condo was perfect in every way and we knew from the moment we stepped in the door that this was THE Place at the Beach. There are myriad specialo touches you are certain to appreciate as you take enjoy your vacation here as well.

                        This is a great condo! It's in a great location. The view from the deck is spectacular! Over the years we have stayed at several very nice condos in the Shore Drive area of Myrtle Beach, this one is THE BEST. My wife and I will be back.

                        This oceanside condo is absolutely beautiful! The photos and video posted by the owner are quite accurate, but barely do the condo justice. The quality of the furniture, TV's, appliances, and fixtures is excellent and the seaside decor is lovely. The owner was very helpful and responsive to questions when we made our reservation. The condo was also very clean and everything we needed (beach umbrella, beach chairs, kitchen utensils, dishes, sheets, and towels) was in good order. We would definitely stay at this condo again and we will recommend it to our relatives and friends.

                        This was one of our best vacations. Staying in unit 1H made it so. This unit is definitely luxurious and immaculate with all the modern amenities and tasteful decor one could want. The proximity to the beach, the view and the comforts of the condo made it one of our very best vacation experiences. I loved the panoramic view and being so close to the beach. The owners are very pleasant and nice people. I would love to return and miss it already!

                        We had an absolutely amazing time at your condo August 3-20. This was a blessed gift to my parents for throwing us a wedding, and they had a fantastic time. The condo is decorated perfectly and is so cozy- and what a great location! We have been going to the same stretch of beach since I was a little girl, so I've stayed at a variety of properties, but this is by far the best place we've stayed. Access was easy, and dealing with you was wonderful- it felt like family from afar. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here to anyone - what a perfect vacation. Thank you, The Klein's and The Macik's

                        A place at the Beach is perfect find for anyone wanting a great vacation. Everything was well decorated and very clean. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. This condo is exactly as described- -even better. So convenient to be so close to the beach. Loved to sit out in the mornings on the patio and watch the beach and enjoy our coffee. The beach chairs and umbrella were a plus. Would recommend this condo to anyone. ENJOY!

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Welcome to Maggard's Beach Cottage. We are Jim and Belinda Maggard from Paintsville, Kentucky. Brad and Kristi Maggard from Lexington, Kentucky. Our family loves vacationing in Myrtle Beach and especially on Shore Drive where we enjoy the laid back atmosphere and yet are close and convenient to everything. We invite you to enjoy our Vacation Home as much as we do. It's like having your own beach cottage and living on the ocean's edge.

                      Why the Owner Chose A Place at the Beach III:
                      After renting at APATB III on Shore Drive for many years and enjoying it so much, we wanted to create what we felt was the ultimate vacation experience for our family and share it with others. We completely renovated and customized this unit in the fall of 2009 to do just that.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      We love being able to walk next door to Sands Ocean Club resort. Whether getting a massage at the spa, eating lunch at River City Cafe or listening to music at Ocean Annies, it's all just steps away. Within 5 miles of the condo on Hwy 17 you have Restaurant Row, Barefoot Landing, House of Blues, Cracker Barrell, and the Myrtle Beach Mall with movie theaters. You also have Kroger, Wal-Mart and Tanger Outlet Mall minutes away without ever getting on a busy highway.
