About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms (Sleeps 6)


If you have seen a listing on Craigslist for this condo, it is bogus and was created by someone trying to defraud people. We have not listed our condo on Craigslist.


Located on the seventh floor of the prestigious Maisons sur Mer ocean front high rise on Shore Drive, our two bedroom, two bath condo features the largest floor plan in the building with 1,500 square feet of heated living area and two large covered balconies containing an additional 350 square feet of furnished outdoor living space.

Features include panoramic views of the ocean from the bright, spacious rooms, well-equipped kitchen with sunlit glass-walled breakfast area, formal dining room, balcony access from all rooms (excluding bathrooms), and unique room layout allowing for maximum privacy (the two bedrooms are at opposite ends of the condo). Our unit is located on the North side of the building and overlooks the pool and tennis courts in addition to having a spectacular view of the ocean.

For the comfort of both our guests and ourselves, we rent our condo as a NON-SMOKING UNIT. For the protection of our property, HOUSE PARTIES are stictly prohibited. Renters must be families or responsible adults. At least one member of the renting party must be 25 YEARS OF AGE or older. In addition, the bylaws of our Homeowners' Association do not allow renters or guests to bring dogs, cats, or other pets onto the property.

We are proud to be owners in the Maisons sur Mer building. Long regarded to be the pre-eminent oceanfront high-rise in Myrtle Beach, Maisons sur Mer offers 24-hour security, on-site maintenance, four high-speed elevators, direct beach access, large heated pool, tennis courts (2), putting green, driving net, snack bar, and oceanfront cocktail lounge. Because only a small portion of the Maisons sur Mer condos are rental units, guests enjoy a relaxing, un-crowded atmosphere that is perfect for family vacations.

We love our Myrtle Beach condo and have tried, within our means, to make it as comfortable as possible for both guests and ourselves. We are definitely not absentee owners and operate the condo on a 'zero sum gain basis', which means that all revenue in excess of expenses generated by rentals is used for further improvements to the property. From our library of books, board games, VCR tapes, and DVD's to our comfortable beds, flat panel TVs, and wall-mounted hair dryers, we have given a lot of thought to equipping our condo with the extras that make it our guests' 'home away from home'. Included with a summer rental is the use of a beach service umbrella set (2 chairs and an umbrella) that will be set up each day by the beach lifeguard. This is a $130 value.

PLEASE NOTE: Should you decide to rent our condo, we want you to know you have the option of booking via the "Book It" button on this listing or by contacting my husband and me, who are the owners of the property. To clarify, the "Service Fee" shown in the detailed quote applies only if you use the "Book It" button and/or pay through VRBO. The acceptance of your rental will always be contingent on you signing our rental agreement and providing a regular mailing address and cell phone number. We will send the rental agreement to you through the VRBO system and will hold your reservation for a period of two weeks while you get the required paperwork back to us. We have the ability to accept payment from you in the form of checks or MasterCard/VISA/Discover charges without using the VRBO payment apparatus. Send us an email ( or call us (724-941-8613 or 412-780-6403), and we can begin the reservation process. Our premium accommodations and personalized service make our guests return year after year. If you are looking for an ocean side condo with the luxury of an upscale, residential apartment, you won't be disappointed with Apt. #707 at Maisons sur Mer.

About Tom and Janet Levine

We are Tom and Janet Levine, empty nesters from Western Pennsylvania. We have two grown sons, Tim, who lives in the Warren, OH area with our brand new daughter-in-law, Jenny, and Andy, who lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife, Kate. Tom is a small businessman. Janet helps Tom with his business and manages the rentals for the Maisons-sur-Mer condo, but her main passion is golf. We love the South and feel we are partially displaced Southerners because Tom's mother was born and raised in Mississippi. Tom likes to tell the story that he was quite old before he realized that Damn Yankees is two words!

Tom and Janet Levine purchased this condo in 1993

Why Tom and Janet Levine chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

We began vacationing in Myrtle Beach shortly after we were married in 1973. We stayed at many different places including the old South Wind (not the multi-million dollar South Wind by the Sea), the Myrtle Beach Resort, and the Sands Ocean Club before staying for the first time at Maisons-sur-Mer in the mid eighties. We immediately fell in love with the property and never considered staying anywhere else in Myrtle Beach from that time forward. We loved the spaciousness and floorplans of the condos and the building amenities such as the 24-hour security and on-site maintenance that are truly unique to the vacation condo market. We realized our dream of owning in the building when we purchased Unit #707 in 1993. We began renting our unit from the outset, have perfected the reservation process over the years, and have always considered our renters needs when making improvements to the property.

What makes this condo unique

We love the ocean and the beach atmosphere but also love having a place at the beach that is comfortable, furnished to our liking, and 'a home away from home.' We have tried to provide this combination of vacation setting and homey atmosphere for our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've been staying at the Maisons-sur-Mer for the last 12 years and on Shore Drive many years before that. Once we found unit 707 we've stayed in it and planned our trips around its availability. The unit is so comfortable, clean and well equipped that you can just walk in and feel relaxed like you've just arrived at home. The Levines have a good system for reservations and keys. The views are great from both balconies and it's wonderful to get up and watch the sunrise. We've been there during some bad beach weather but with all the books and games that are available even staying in was enjoyable.

Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second visit to "A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN ON EARTH" at the Maison Sur Mer.

Janet and Tom have a beautiful beach home. The unit is clean beyond belief and all that you could imagine and more is there for you to use; television and music in every room, an amazing kitchen, luxurious linens, games, puzzles and books. Janet made check-in easy for us and always called to make sure that everything was

perfect. The front balcony offers a lovely view of a beach sunrise over the ocean and the balcony on the back side offers breathtaking sunsets. What more could anyone want? We have already planned our next visit.

Thank you Janet and Tom for allowing us to share this lovely treasure.

Year Two-Twice as nice!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second booking in the fabulous condo. I was prepared this year to be able to turn the door knob and NOT HAVE TO DO A THING BUT UNPACK. It was like I never left last year, still clean, stocked with everything I could need, and just relax. I cannot tell you how nice this vacation was for us. I had friends that visited for a few hours and they were amazed how nice this condo is. Weather was perfect and we enjoyed the pool, pool bar, and beach. We always walk to Ocean Annie's for music and drinks. We also went to Apache Pier restaurant called Croakers for excellent shrimp and fish baskets. Picked up burgers and hot dogs as well. All food excellent and inexpensive. We went to Castanos at barefoot landing which is high end eating but so worth it. Key West Grill at Broadway at the beach was great. Finn McCools right up the street has the best Clam chowder, and Biminis is a must! We feel at home in condo 707 and we will be back next year. The Levine's that own this condo will make sure you are happy and comfortable, you will not be disappointed! They stay booked and that says it all.

Immaculate condo

  • 5 of 5

The cleaning people do a tremendous job getting the condo ready for renters and Janet does a great job preparing you for your stay. Everything was very well organized with the keyless entry to the unloading and parking at the facility. From the view of the ocean from the 7th floor condo to the games and movies that are provided we couldn't have asked for more. Janet also provided us with a list of the better restaurants in the area. Our family was also able to use the fitness center and the grills that are part of the facility to cook burgers, chicken, and steaks. It really felt like we were at home in the condo but yet we were right on the ocean. I would strongly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a place to stay. When we go back to Myrtle Beach we will definitely stay here again.

Look no further!

  • 5 of 5

I recently visited Myrtle Beach for the first time with my dad. He wanted to visit the Atlantic ocean, so I made it my goal to find an oceanfront condo. If you desire a condo that offers the comfort and essentials of home, this is it! The pictures only tell half the story. When we walked in, we were both equally impressed. The rooms are roomier than any hotel you'll find. The condo is beautifully decorated in a seascape theme. There's even a clock that tells you when high tide will occur. Aside from the dining room, you can also dine in the kitchen and the balcony. Speaking of the balcony, you can access it from any room in the condo. If you don't want to lug a suitcase full of dirty clothes back home, there's a washer and dryer in the unit. If you want to work out, there are cardio and weight rooms onsite. The weather was iffy during our stay, but it was still awesome to hear the lapping waves of the ocean. Whatever your eating preference, there's alot of restaurant choices within 5-15 minutes. Visiting during non-tourist season made the trip extra special. Other than Christmas, we didn't encounter any crowds or long wait times. There's plenty of shopping in the area, too.

This was my first experience with VRBO, so I had some reservations. Working with Janet, the owner, put those reservations at ease. She confirmed all payments that were mailed. Her instructions were very thorough. She even called the second day to check on us. If you need to recharge your batteries and relax, I strongly recommend this condo. You will not be disappointed.
