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

OUTSTANDING View from all 4 decks with this ONE house away from the beach.

** Wi-Fi connection and digital cable service

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would never rent to Devonna W again. Did not use any of the sheets I provided - slept on the mattress pads - so had to wash every one of them. Also took 2 towels & 3 washcloths. Large tear in my new slipcover. But the worse was that security was called on Friday night due to their obscene behavior on the decks at 5:30 in the morning.

I was super impressed with the house Gini! We loved everything about it. The views we're amazing and the beach is so close! The community is perfect. We really enjoyed taking rides on the golf cart, and the arcade and ice cream! It was perfect. We had an amazing trip.

It was our first family trip since our children have grown up.The house is very spacious with privacy. We loved the beautiful views and being close to the ocean. Our grandchildren loved golf cart rides and the water park. We would definetly recommend this beach property. Thanks Gini for sharing your house.

Awesome view of the ocean and the house was beautiful however the neighbors weren’t accepting of colored people being in front of them so they made a complaint ro the owner... Then after cleaning the whole house from top to bottom to make sure I got my deposit back, the owner emailed me claiming towels that we never used were missing? So of course we didn’t get our deposit back,,, wonderful time spent with family but, we won’t be back to ocean lakes just not so welcoming...

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you didn't have a good time. I know that security was called due to inappropriate behavior early in the morning. You are getting back most of your deposit - just not for the missing towels and damage to the new couch slipcover. I'm also sorry that you didn't use the sheets but slept on the mattress pads. Hopefully you have a better vacation next time you rent a house.

Gina was a great help. We were short one sheet set she brought it right over. We had a problem with Spectrum and she took care of it. We love the house and the location. We definitely will rent again through VRBO.
