Crescent Shores condo description

Pre-Ad Commentary - I’ve been renting vacation properties that we own since 2003; timeshares, a condo and beach house. I rented with other online companies before signing on with VRBO and Vacation Rentals.com and that was before HomeAway owned either. I guarantee 98% of the owners on the HomeAway Network don’t respond as quickly as I do. A few months ago, the HomeAway Network starting coding the emails from guests and homeowners similar to emails with Craigslist; back and forth. It used to be that responses went directly to each others email address. I don’t go that route; I do more work and go to my owner’s site and retrieve your email that you typed in and when I respond, I hit reply and take out the coded address and send my personal email from me to you…..owner to potential guest! I don’t use the standard reply that could automatically be sent to you either…to keep you hooked…when I reply, it is from me and personally typed for you and you only. I don’t do the meddling HomeAway sending you what to pay me or you pay HomeAway and HomeAway pays me; I have thorough Rental Agreements and I offer up several telephone numbers that you can reach me, my family or my caretakers at and a few email addresses. I provide nice places to stay and I treat you the way I’d want to be treated. I just rented a place through HomeAway Net in Pigeon Forge and we had 2 problems and neither was the fault of the owner or her place to stay; both problems were caused by HomeAway. She said she was going to quit using the meddling automatic service too. I use HomeAway for people to find my rentals; that is it. They can percentage a long time great advertiser wherever they want. My last few email replies went out in 3hr15min, 34m, 3h3m, 5hr52m, 11m, 1h5m, 11hr25m, 2hr43m, 5m, 13h29m, 7h2m, 3h19m, 1h56m and I’ve been very busy doing other things and I never miss responding to anyone. I’d guess since 2003 over 50% of my email replies take place in less than a 4 hour response time? Read my reviews at 317074 and 81119.

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH OCEANFRONT CONDO..

This very nice oceanfront condominium, in one of the Grand Strand's best condominium complexes, has an outstanding view of the North Myrtle Beach coastline from the 27 foot oceanfront balcony with nice balcony furniture to enjoy nature's beauty. Let the ocean waves relaxing sound put you in a good mood.

Come and visit our condo, owned by a 67 year vacationer of the Grand Strand area and we still visit multiple times per year. We know the area very well and we'd be glad to help you in any way we can.

The complex features a 110 foot oceanfront pool, a 200' lazy river, a heated indoor pool, a kids pool, 2 large oceanfront jetted hot tubs and a nicely equipped exercise fitness room available to 16 and older. Crescent Shores has a nice wide sandy beach location with beach umbrellas and chairs available for rent right in front of the complex from late May to mid-September {Beach Services - (843) 280-5684}. Parasail and Banana boat rides are next door on the ocean side of Molly Darcy's Restaurant; rides by Myrtle Beach Watersports.

We have also played all of the golf courses at the Golf Capital of the World and the family has tested most of the amusements. Crescent Shores has convenient access from Highway 17 to Ocean Boulevard via 17th Avenue S. It's located across the street from a nice beachwear store and Cabana Mart convenience store; Molly Darcy's Oceanfront Grill is next door. We're nearby Barefoot Landing, Alabama Theater, House of the Blues, Tanger Outlets, Myrtle Beach Mall, Bass Pro Shops, Calabash, Little River, Restaurant Row, Cherry Grove Pier, OD Pavilion, Sun Cruz Casinos and a short drive to Broadway at the Beach, WonderWorks, Myrtle Waves Waterpark, NASCAR Speed Park, Myrtle Beach Pelican baseball, Carolina Opry, Palace Theater, Pirates Voyage, Medieval Times, Ripley's Aquarium, IMAX, Family Kingdom, Brookgreen Gardens, Battleship NC, Legends In Concert, Coastal Grand Mall, Market Commons, Murrells Inlet, Myrtle Beach Airport, Historic Wilmington, Myrtle Beach Speedway and other Grand Strand vacation destinations.

Our condominium features one king bed, four queen beds and three full baths. The master bath has a very large easy access separate shower and whirlpool garden tub. All bedrooms feature plenty of closet and dresser space and each has a TV, VCR, and DVD player. The living room features a 56' high definition TV, BluRay/DVD player and a stereo with cassette, MP3 and CD player. The bedrooms are carpeted and all other living space has beautiful large tile floors. The kitchen is very well appointed and has plenty of storage space and utensils. The condo has free WIFI service.

This unit (1608 South Tower) is located near the three large, quick elevators (with generator power back-up) and it has a great view of the area from the wide (street side) entry hallway. An exterior closet is available for beach supplies. The master bedroom and the living room both have sliding doors to the 27 foot oceanfront balcony with 6 chairs and a table.

We accept families and responsible adults only and allow NO PETS and NO SMOKING in our condominium or balcony. NO MOTORCYCLES, ATVs or TRAILERS are allowed on the Crescent Shores premises. We will send you a detailed Policy Sheet and prime months are weekly rentals only; Saturday to Saturday. Rental linens are included. Rented linens must stay in the condo; bring or buy beach and pool towels. We can also help you with rentals of cribs, high chairs, wheelchairs, beach umbrellas and beach chairs, coolers, bikes and more, with some good companies that deliver and pick-up. We have a great caretaker company that looks after the condo and our guests if they need something; their office is 4 blocks away.

All rates are subject to SC, NMB and Horry County taxes; 11% combined as of 2014. All weekly rates include bed and bath linens with made beds and post stay cleaning.

Kick back and relax and enjoy the ocean breeze and the relaxing sound of the ocean waves.

                  Location

                  Car: Recommended

                  We're located in the Crescent Section of North Myrtle Beach, a city formed by 4 different beaches in 1968; sister city to Myrtle Beach, 4-5 miles to the south. Most people visit the Grand Strand and don't know there are 2 different cities. NMB is family friendly and home of Barefoot Landing, Alabama Theater and House of the Blues and much more. The section between the 2 cities is mostly referred to as Restaurant Row and inc. Myrtle Beach Mall and Bass Pro Shops (.5 mi. south of NMB) and Tanger Outlets (1 mile south of NMB). NMB is home to the Shag (dance), great beach music and hometown of Wheel of Fortune's Vanna White.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We're from the small community of Pilot, NC. We both went to Bunn High School, I went to Wake Forest University and my wife went to East Carolina. I was in the US Army at Fort Jackson, SC during the Korean War and I played some professional baseball in Nova Scotia, Canada. We are both retired public school teachers. I was a US history teacher, a baseball and basketball coach and a principal for most of my career. My wife taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade and taught 3rd most of her career. We both taught Sunday school at our local church for 30+ years. I've been a Deacon, choir member and church moderator for around 60 years. I retired in 1985 and then sold real estate for 18 years. My wife retired in 1991; she took off 7 years while our children were young. I've been a member of the Lions Club since 1967 and a charter member and 3 time president of our local club. I won the International Melvin Jones Fellow Award for Humanitarian Services in 1991. I also served on the local school board for 8 years after retiring. We support our local school and attend many sporting events there.

                  Why the Owner Chose Crescent Shores:
                  We've always loved the Crescent Shores location and we used to talk about that location when the old Rock'n K motel was there. We first visited the Grand Strand in 1947 and honeymooned there in 1954. We sometimes rented from Vanna White's mom and dad when they had a real estate company next to where the Crescent Shores parking deck is now. We've visited and stayed in 100+ Grand Strand condos, houses and motels over the years and we still visit new ones today to see what they offer. We migrated mostly to North Myrtle Beach in the early 1970's. When we chose Crescent Shores we did it after an extensive search and we are happy with our choice. Our condo represents the sale of a family farm and a like-kind tax exchange; it does not represent public school teacher retirement!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We love the balcony view and sitting on it to watch nature and the lovely Atlantic. The sound of the ocean waves are quite tranquil. I'm a avid golfer and my wife enjoys riding the carts and looking at the courses. What better place to do it than the Golf Capital of the World? We've played them all so far and some many times; we're just waiting for the next one to open. It was a great place to visit as a young family in the 60's and it's a great place for granddad and grandmother visit today; especially when the grandchildren visit with us. Crescent Shores works very well for us and our condo has all the comforts and features of home and more. We personally take care of it to suit us and our renters.
