About Barbara Collier Kaylor

We love the beach and go as often as possible. We both can't wait until we can spend more time there. In the mean time, we are sharing our home with our extended 'beach families' on VRBO!

Very recently we purchased a very nice one bedroom on the beach. Great views and wonderful amenties. If you need a smaller place that is fantastic, call me about our Beach Cove!

Barbara Collier Kaylor purchased this condo in 2006

Why Barbara Collier Kaylor chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

Both our three bedroom as well as our 1 bedroom is located in a fantastic neighborhood!

NOT CROWDED with a lot of high- rises.

Perfect locations, lying quietly between Myrtle Beach proper and North Myrtle Beach, we have the best of both without the crowds...

What makes this condo unique

The best part of staying at our beach home is the rejuvenation we get from just relaxing by the sea. Our family is very close and our family time is extremly precious. We build a lot of memories at the beach that will last forever.

This was our third summer in M.B. And like the Goldilocks story, this condo was "just right"! Beautiful, reasonable, and not only is the Island Vista a great resort but the staff goes the extra mile. We left the lights on in our van overnight. When I inquired at the front desk about a reasonable mechanic who could give us a jump, they sent their own maintenance men up with a portable charger - no charge and with a smile to boot.

Hope we can swing two weeks next year!

We love staying at the condo at Island Vista. We have always met new friends and our stay has always been very pleasant. We no longer visit the Tiki Bar during our visit as the manager is rude and not very business friendly. The condo is very well kept and feels like home.

4th Year at Barb and Ken's Condo

  • 4 of 5

We love going back to Island Vista resort. They have everything taken care of from beach toys for the kids to extra beach towels. We really enjoyed playing Monopoly and Old Maid that we found in the cabinet. We also love that you can park on the same floor that the condo is located. Perfect layout for families and the location of Island Vista is great because it is away from all the other hotels and the beaches are not very crowded.

The only small issues were the bed in the 2nd bedroom. It is a king bed made up of 2 twin beds and it is uneven and very uncomfortable. Luckily I switched rooms with my mom to the very comfortable master bed. Also the antigravity chairs on the patio have started to sag and they need to be tightened up so when you sit down you don't hit the bar of the chair. They have been there every year and I am sure with the salty air and over time they just get worn down easily.

Thanks for providing accommodation for another great family vacation!

Owner's Response: Beth, Guest like you and your family make us love sharing our home with others. It's so nice to have people that love the beach and take care of our home. We look forward to many more years with you at Island Vista 506! FYI, I appreciate your comments and want you to know we just bought two new anti gravity chairs (we replace them every couple of years, the salt air is so hard on them), and I just got a mattress topper for the king split bed. HOPEFULLY, that will make it a 5 star in your heart again. xoxox

If you're looking for that extra special place to stay this is it. This condo has everything you could ever want or need. So well equipped. Beautifully decorated with unique hand painted art effects that are incredible. Being oceanfront you can see and hear the ocean from the master bedroom, dining room, living room and kitchen. You need to bring nothing other than your desire to relax and have fun. Condo is extremely clean and well maintained. No problem having an afternoon nap in the ever too comfy leather lazy boy. Ken & Barb are awesome hosts who will share with you the best places to visit and eat. They try them first before giving a thumbs up. Location is absolutely the best being in the "Golden Mile" of Myrtle Beach nestled among million dollar beachfront homes. So many activities and sights to enjoy close by. We love this condo and highly recommend it. Staying here makes your vacation one of the most memorable you will ever have. Thanks Ken & Barb for letting us stay in your fabulous condo. We are blessed to know you.
