About the property

Four bedrooms, 2.5 baths and large sun room

Our beach house is located in the secure gated community of Oceanside Village. This family community offers many amenities--three swimming pools, a children's water play park, tennis, bocce, basketball and pickleball courts for your enjoyment. There is also a new playground with climbing equipment and swings. The Ocean is literally steps from our door. There is no need to drive to the beach, no hassles with parking, and the house is convenient for a quick trip for a nap, lunch or an evening stroll on the beach! There is also an outdoor shower to wash the sand away before entering the house.

Why pay Oceanfront prices when you will be just across Ocean Blvd, first row, with the added benefit of the Oceanside Village amenities and the security of a gated community.

We own two homes side by side in the cul de sac on Lark. The houses are located at the corner of Melody Lane and Ocean Blvd. They each have four bedrooms and 2.5 baths. They may be rented together for large family gatherings.

Avoid the hassle of packing sheets and towels. Rates include all bed linens and bath towels. We also provide cleaning and laundry at your departure, so you leave for home hassle free.

We are confident you will find our smoke free home comfortable, fully equipped and convenient. The house has keyless entry so there are no keys to lose or return.

There is parking for three vehicles right in front of the house. No need to jockey around cars during your stay.

The community swimming pools and children’s water activity pool is a short drive from the house. It is walkable, but with children in tow and in the heat of the day we recommend driving. The community has a new playground, tennis, bocce and pickle ball courts, again, just approximately one half a mile from the house.

We even text you when the house is ready for your family to check in, which is always before 2:00 pm, allowing full enjoyment of arrival day!

The house has a large front porch which is a perfect spot for your morning coffee, or evening relaxation. We love to cook so our kitchen is modern and fully equipped. The large island makes a perfect spot for the kids or large family meals. In addition, there is a kitchen table, dining room table and even a dining table in the sun room. The sun room offers Ocean views and has a futon--nice hangout for the kids or a board game.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, television, private bath, and also the laundry room with a full size washer and dryer.

The second bedroom has a queen size bed, the third bedroom, small, but has a full size bed, this room is perfect for the kids. Finally, the fourth bedroom is away from the other three, with a full size bed and a private half bath.

Living room has sofa, loveseat, television, ocean views and don't forget the secure wireless internet so you can all stay connected, don’t forget your Bluetooth speaker!

The additional exit and entrance (if you obtain a key card) to Oceanside Village just across from the Conch Cafe makes it quick and easy to explore the nearby activities. The Garden City Pier is just one mile south, while the Surfside Pier is one mile north. Both of these areas offer restaurants, fishing and activities for the family. Take advantage of the new walking path to safely walk along Ocean Boulevard to each pier.

Oceanside Village is conveniently located in Surfside Beach, making it just a short drive to peaceful Murrell's Inlet, Market Common entertainment complex, Broadway on the Beach, Myrtle Beach Airport, and of course the Myrtle Beach boardwalk area. There are several golf courses, a water park, flea market, miniature golf, restaurants, and shopping in Surfside Beach and Garden City--enough to surely keep the family entertained! Golf carts may be rented by the day or the entire week at the Oceanside Village office.

We adhere to a minimum age requirement of 26 years, due to insurance and community restrictions. Our homes do not allow pets and smoking outside only please.

Please feel free to call or email if you have any questions.

About Cathy DiPietro

We have owned these properties in Oceanside Village for over 30 years. Our parents bought them for their five children to enjoy time together in Myrtle Beach. In 2006 the five children took over the management and rental of the houses. We are enjoying to continue the traditions and memories that we shared together with our children and now our grandchildren!

Cathy DiPietro purchased this house in 2006

Why Cathy DiPietro chose Garden City Beach

Our home is comfortable, family friendly and so convenient to the Ocean you will never stay anywhere else once you have stayed on Lark. It is so convenient to run home for a cold drink, bathroom break or to nap the children. The location makes morning power walks on the beach a must, along with evening strolls. The Piers, Garden City and Surfside are both only a mile away, so they are a fun walk to more excitement if that is what you enjoy.

Best vacation ever.😃

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation ever with the family. The house is so close to the beach, walking distance, which made it easy to come and go as we pleased. The area is a great place to bring children with so many different activities to do. The house was big enough for 8 people and clean. We already plan on coming back next year.

Wonderful Time At The Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our beach "home away from home" was perfect. We had lots of space to relax. Everything we needed was provided. Everything was clean and comfortable. The beach was just across the street. The neighborhood was not near as crowded as the competition up the road.The owner was awesome to work with! Would definitely recommend for families! Thanks for a wonderful beach vacation.

Great weekend getaway, beachfront access, quiet community and lots of fun!

  • 5 of 5

Visited this home on 4th of July week - 7/1/2017-7/8/2017 and it was PERFECT!

The house was clean, ready early for us to check in, and soooo close to the beach. We really enjoyed the beachfront access, the gated community, the ability use the outdoor showers, and sit on the porch and relax! Restaurants within walking distance which were delicious! I would highly recommend this house - 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Plenty of 8 people and plenty of kitchen space! We had 2 small babies with us and had plenty of space and room for all items needed. I can't wait to go back again!
