Coral Beach condo description
If you're a first time visitor to the Coral Beach Resort, you're gonna love our condo. If you're a regular at the Coral Beach Resort, you're going to be amazed what a fresh renovation has done to improve the interior dwelling of your favorite Myrtle Beach destination. A recent renter, a long-time repeat vacationer at the Coral Beach Resort, said 'The rest of the resort needs to follow your cue and do the exact renovations you've done to your place. It's perfect...just exactly the tweeks needed to make the experience here ideal. We'll be renting from you again next time.'
In winter of 2012, we decided the first order of business was to tackle the 1986 vintage kitchen. Refacing cabinetry wasn't an option, as the layout needed to change to make the kitchen more functional and add modern conveniences. We installed new, walnut-finish frameless kitchen cabinetry. The redesign afforded enough space to install an 18 inch wide commercial-grade dishwasher. We put in beautiful tropical brown granite countertops, and the new layout now provides plenty of countertopspace for food prep, which was virtually non-existent before. A new brushed stainless steel, 10 inch deep bowl undermount sink with brushed stainless steel gooseneck plumbing fixtures were put in place, along with a sink disposal. While the range and refrigerator had been replaced in 2007, the tired, 300 watt microwave oven with no turntable was still in place, so it was replaced with a state of the art 1100 watt unit.
Another feature that today's renter has come to expect is clothes washing & drying capability in-suite. We found the best, quietest, european-style all-in-one machine available, with 13 cubic feet capacity and installed it in the bathroom. That required a change to the countertop, so we installed a custom-designed two-tier countertop in tropical brown granite with an undermount sink and brushed nickel plumbing fixtures. Now whether you stay for a weekend or for several months during the winter off-season, you have what you need for a comfortable, enjoyable stay.
As we've always been put off by minimalistic, cheap cookware put in vacation property by on-site management companies, leaving you to bring half of your kitchen from home with you in order to adequately prepare a meal, we decided to outfit the kitchen with professional, chef-quality stainless steel cookware, quality bakeware / cooking utensils / flatware as well as Pfaltzgraf dishware and Pyrex food storage containers.
Quality beds are important on vacation, and the standard hotel-grade fitments leave a lot to be desired in comfort and durability / longevity. The 2 full size beds in the bedroom and the wall-mount Murphy bed in the living area were fitted with new mattresses & boxsprings from the Original Mattress Company. As some folks need sleeping for 7 at a one-bedroom condo price point, we got rid of the overly-soft couch in the living area and replaced it with a Klaussner sleeper sofa with a deluxe, twin-bed-size mattress.
New flat screen, high definition television sets have replaced the tube tv's, and a DVD player was added as well. A Miele vacuum cleaner that will clean the carpeted flooring and automatically switch over for the tile surfaces stays in the room at all times, accessible to guests to use at their leisure. Nobody likes second-day sand in the sheets carried into bed by feet just because the cleaning staff takes their equipment with them.
The indoor and outdoor Common Areas of this resort are accessible to all renters whether you rent directly from an owner, through an off-site rental management company, or through the on-site management company. Common Areas are all the saunas, hot tubs, lazy river, kiddie waterpark pool, heated indoor pool & outdoor pools. The other areas within the resort considered Amenities such as the bowling alley, the Atlantis breakfast buffet, the Splash beach bar, etc. are owned by Coral Beach Resort Management LLC (a.k.a. CBRM) and CBRM has chosen to eliminate all point of sale purchases at those amenities to limit their use / access only to renters who rent units controlled by / managed by CBRM. Even if you choose to rent directly through CBRM, no point of sale purchases by cash, credit or debit card are permitted any longer...everything from their breakfast to their beer has to be billed to the room key (called a Splash Pass) issued by the front desk staff. Clarification of these details is important, as the resort's home page makes no mention of water features such as pools, nor does it mention that these areas are deemed Common Areas. Their home page only mentions Amenities, and without proper clarification, one might mistakenly read their text and assume that pools / water features are Amenities restricted from use, which is incorrect. If you come to Myrtle Beach for the ocean / beach and an occasional swim / sauna / hot tub, you'll enjoy yourself here renting directly from an owner.
The location is ideal for those who want access to a lot of dining, entertainment, shopping and area attractions without spending 30 minutes in heavy traffic to do so. The popular Market Common, on the site of the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, is just a 7 minute drive. The boardwalk area is about a 7 minute drive as well. Family Kingdom entertainment park is within 7 blocks, an easy walk. Broadway on the Beach, with it's Ripley's Aquarium and Imax theater is just 10 minutes drive. The nearest grocery store is 3 blocks away, and a Walmart is a 7 minute drive.

This is the second time renting the same condo. Glenn is the best to deal with and he makes sure your stay is a vacation and not a job. He always goes the extra mile no matter what you need. The condo is first class and he keeps making it better. Highly recommend him to rent form. We stayed a month both times and enjoyed it very much.

Coral Beach Resort is the best! My husband and I went to Myrtle Beach to celebrate our twins 7th birthday. This resort is perfect for young and old. Glenn is wonderful to deal with and the condo was perfect. The updated kitchen is heaven and includes a dishwasher which is great and handy! We enjoy the resort pools, and beach area and this resort is close to everything. We will be returning and renting again from Glenn and his family. Thanks Glenn for a wonderful vacation!

We stayed in this condo from December, 2012, to March 2013. The condo was exactly as represented, the view was magnificent, and the kitchen was upgraded and well equipped. The owner was very prompt to get back to us to resolve the few issues we encountered (with the resort, not with the condo itself). We enjoyed the convenience of having a washer and dryer in the unit. The only issues we had with our stay were ones that the owner warned us about. The resort issues a “Splash” card to guests who rent through their property management firm. Those cards are not issued to guests who rent directly from the condo owner. Without a “Splash” card one cannot purchase from the onsite Starbucks, use the bowling alley, video arcade, poolside bar, tennis courts or laundry facilities. The owner was upfront about this so we were prepared and it wasn't a problem for us.

GREAT vacation with my son and his BFF!
GREAT vacation with my son and his BFF!
My son, his BFF and I just recently returned from a trip to Myrtle Beach. If you are lookig for a fun location right on the beach, this place is exactly what you are looking for. Many ammenities to the resort including their own arcade and bowling alley and the many pools including a lazy river, all at a very reasonable price. This resort is within walking distance of many shops, etc. The unit itself was very clean and it had a nice kitchen where we could make breakfasts and lunches that saved us beach time and lots of money. The view from the balcony was awesome! It is a busy place, but lots to do for children and adults. I am a repeat renter from Glenn and have suggested his accomodations to other friends and people I meet. I have already booked for Labor Day, and I will be going back again next year as the owner is very nice to work with. Bottom line - great experience!

This is my first time using VRBO to find a vacation spot in Myrtle Beach. In the past we haven't had good experiences and were weary about choosing another privately owned condo but nonetheless we took the plunge, and were pleasently surprised! This unit was very clean when we arrived and the experience in dealing with the owner Glenn, was refreshing. It was great to have an in room washer dryer and the kitchen had everything you need to cook big meals since we had four children with us! The only part that was a tad annoying was the need for a key card in order to get to the indoor pool and parking garage but it wasn't a big deal. Also, since we rented from a private owner we were not supposed to be able to get into all the other amenities that the resort offered. Like the bowling ally, resort store, etc., however we were still able to get in since other people were coming in and out and the staff was helpful too. We also loved the cleaning staff she was very courteous and thorough. Thanks so much Glenn! I would definitely reccomend this condo to friends and family!

I have been visiting Myrtle Beach for years, and I've stayed many, many times at the Coral Beach Resort. I've always loved the many resort offerings, and my children have always said that this was the most fun resort to stay at in Myrtle Beach. But I got tired of dust and dirty carpets, lumpy mattresses, worn-out, unsupportive couches and chairs, lousy cookware with missing pieces (lids for pots that were no longer in the kitchen, and vice versa), and the dated kitchens without dishwashers and a microwave oven lacking enough power to pop a bag of popcorn. Washing clothes was a hassle, having to get rolls of quarters from the front desk and ride the elevators back and forth from laundry facilities to the condo over a period of hours in the evening. There was new paint and new carpet every few years when we'd come back, but the things that mattered most to our family went unchanged inside the condo, and so we started staying at newer resorts with modern kitchens and clothes washing equipment within the condo. Eventually we learned that many of the resorts we stayed at had condos that were individually owned as part of a condotel and not a hotel. A family friend who travels frequently turned us onto VRBO.COM, and we learned that we could find cleaner, personalized and modernized accomodations at the very places we stayed in the past, with Coral Beach Resort among them. Our most recent stay in this particular condo was our third visit to Coral Beach Resort renting directly from an owner, but the first time renting this condo from this owner. I can tell you this was our best experience yet renting directly from an owner, and we will be renting this same condo again during future visits to Myrtle Beach. It wasn't the least expensive rental among the VRBO listings at Coral Beach, but it was far and above the best value of them all, and still was less money than I would have paid to rent the "same old thing" directly through the resort. The 80's kitchen has been replaced with a beautiful, contemporary kitchen complete with dishwasher and disposal..."musts" for the mom who still finds herself cooking on vacation. The pots, pans, dishes, and so forth are better quality (and more complete sets) than what I have at home. I LOVE being able to wash/dry clothes in the condo while spending quality time with my family and tending to other tasks. The Original Mattress Company beds are phenominal to sleep on, and the furniture sits well. The total package here!

We stayed at this condo May 5 - May 12. We found the condo to be clean and very comfortable. Everything that you would need is in the condo. The beds were very comfortable, the location of the condo is perfect. Coral Beach is very nice and offers a lot of amenities. We found the owner to be very helpful and answered any questions we had. We would recommend this condo to family and friends and will definitely be contacting Glenn for our future trips to Myrtle Beach.

I am pleased to be the first person to write a review for this beautifully updated condo. My husband and I stayed here for the months of February and March, 2012. Everything you read in the description of this unit is exactly as stated by the owner. No false advertising here. He has been a pleasure to deal with. He has made the rental process as simple as possible. Our daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren came to visit during our time here. You really can accommodate 7 people comfortably. Normally I bring a bunch of cooking utensils to a rental unit because what I have found in the kitchens tends to be very hit and miss. Not this condo kitchen. WOW. All the things you really need. It’s like having your nice things from home except that when you open a cupboard door here your plastic containers don’t fall out. There really is something for everyone here. You get higher end finishes, laundry facilities in your own space, at an affordable price. This unit could easily be the best value at Coral Beach Resort.
