About the property

NEW TO RENTAL MARKET THIS YEAR - Totally renovated house in 2013. A real home-away-from-home renovation. Unit 1153 in the Holiday Section

Our beach house is located in the Ocean Lakes Resort, a fabulous, family, entertainment facility right on the ocean. Our home is located in the popular Holiday Inn section of Ocean Lakes and is located just 1 house away from the beach.

This 5 bedroom and 3 1/2 bath raised vacation home sleeps 14. Each bed comes with mattress pad, blanket, comforter, and pillow.

Ocean Lakes is a family-oriented, 24-hour gated, security and patrolled community with a multitude of amenities. Ocean Lakes is located in Myrtle Beach and is the most complete Oceanfront campground on the east coast. With nearly a mile of privately owned beachfront, it features eight fresh water lakes, a recreation center with supervised activities for children such as day camps, fire engine rides and playground activities. Facilities on site in the campground include a heated indoor pool an outdoor Olympic size pool & three kiddie pools and a full size kids splash zone (open late spring to fall), lazy river, water park, golf cart rental, three snack bars and an arcade with 80+ games, an outdoor theater with scheduled events, playgrounds, basketball, shuffle board, miniature golf, a full-time recreation staff.

There are nightly family activities at the Rec Center (check the calendar for scheduled events). One of the most unique activities our family LOVES is the nightly golf cart parade. Guests decorate their golf carts and slowly drive up and down the main strip by the beach. Each cart you pass the kids do a “high five” with the passing cart. Although a difficult event to describe, once your family does it, you too, will be hooked.

The recreation department offers discount prices and tickets to local area attractions and movie theaters. They can assist you in arranging tee times for golf and offer discounts for Prestwick Golf Course. There is a summer camp program for children in the mornings and other events for the entire family on a daily basis

Please note that because Ocean Lakes is a family-oriented community the rental of this house is intended for couples and families 25 or older and not a group of young singles**

Why Gini Calchera chose Myrtle Beach

Wanted to watch the sunrise from the deck - so bought an old small house, which we totally custom remodeled from1 story house with 2 bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms to 5 bedroom home with 3 1/2 bathrooms. Master bedroom and bathroom designed and elevator built to support handicapped needs.

What makes this house unique

Elevator ascends from covered parking area directly into 1st floor living area. Ocean view is amazing - totally unobstructed views from front decks.

Who Could Ask for More!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from the beach. I planned a 75th birthday gathering for my husband and we have a big family. Although we live here in Myrtle Beach, we didn't have enough room in my home for everyone. So I started to look on VRBO for a house on the beach.

We got lucky when we found Gini's home. We had 8 adults and4childten. We stayed from April 1-5. We were so close to the beach,just one house away! The kids had a ball with the beach,pool and daily activities. The adults loved being so near the beach.

The home is beautiful. There are balconies on most bedrooms to enjoy your coffee/ tea while watching the ocean.The bedrooms were decorated tastefully and the beds were very comfortable.

The common areas were ample and enjoyed by all.

Thank you,Gini for a wonderful place to celebrate my husband's milestone birthday with our family. You are a gracious host and we will be back!

An Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! Where do I begin? I stumbled on this property when we were searching for a little getaway. The photos of the home and area views, while are indeed great, do not do this property justice! Gini, the property owner, is absolutely wonderful and so accommodating! We were the first family to rent out her home, and she was so intent on our feedback and tips to ensure she would be going above and beyond for her future property renters! The home is great for a large family, or even multiple families. We had 3 families with a total of 6 adults, 2 teenagers, and 3 children and fit wonderfully! It was great to have access to a golf cart to explore the amazing campground packed full of great onsite activities! There is a huge arcade, an indoor and outdoor pool, water park with slides, clubhouse activites such as ceramics and bingo, and so many other outdoor activities. And do not forget the BEACH!! This house is in PRIME location for the beach! Just literally steps away. Which is so convenient for your bathroom breaks, drink and food refills, or to even lounge on the plethora of decks at the house and be able to watch your family members play in sand. My one and only small critique would be the kitchen and living room area and available seating for eating or gathering. There is a dining table with a capacity of 6 and a living room that accommodates 5, with 2 available folding chairs. It wasn't, honestly, too big of a deal to us to "scatter" a bit during a meal due to the fact you are all still in the same room. And to us, the purpose of being in Myrtle Beach and this awesome campground, was to get out and explore and be outside enjoying the sites! All in all, this property, location, and owner were fantastic! I would recommend it to anyone, and will definitely be back (possibly every year!). I will go as far as saving this property as my "go-to" Myrtle Beach accommodation! Thank you so much Gini for providing us with a wonderful home that just made our vacation more marvelous!
