Property type condo

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms (Sleeps 6)

****** ALERT ***** We have not nor do we plan to advertise our condo on Craigslist. Any listing for this condo that you see on Craigslist was placed there by someone who is not the owner and who is hoping to defraud unsuspecting travelers.

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 and two large furnished covered balconies.

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, 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.

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 his wife, 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 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.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Maisons sur Mer before but Janet and Tom’s unit was different. The layout of the condo is perfect! The decor is perfect for vacations. The master bedroom and bath were luxurious and the fact that linens and towels were of good quality made our stay that much more enjoyable. The fact that the owners called when we arrived to make sure everything was good is a plus. We will definitely be requesting this unit in the future!

3RD Year is a CHARM!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year to stay at Janet & Tom's beautiful condo. To our surprise they have updated a lot! We loved every new update, esp. the spacious new shower in the master. The tile work is lovely, and the new floors were great. I have learned I need to do nothing, but unpack, this year I actually packed less!!! I know there are front loader laundry amenities if something gets dirty, I loved the fact I can wash and go, all done when I return home. This year Maison's offered live bands on Sunday and Monday. What fun, and they grilled out we enjoyed that as well. We had to return to Bimini's 2 times, Castanos, New Pizza joint across the street(very nice new owner) sorry I forgot the name, and Finn McCools. These are our go-to's so to speak. The real treat was Thouroughbred's what a class A establishment. I treated the man friend and we enjoyed the great service and table side cooking experience. I will return next year and look forward to it.

Ocean Annie's had wonderful bands and we always walk down to check it out. I met so many nice people this year. I had a tough July (lost my father) this trip was very needed and deserved. Kutos to Janet for making us feel like home and family. She never disappoints. We look forward to 2018!!!! I have dodged 2 hurricanes in the last 2 years, I would appreciate if they could just stop, everyone has seen enough!! Until next time! Lisa & Wayne

Beautiful Updated Property

  • 5 of 5

Very pleasantly surprised at how updated and comfortable the property was. Very clean and bright and well equipped. Recently updated master bath is very well done. The building itself was well maintained and pool was quite nice. Only negative comment relates to the interior hallways. They look old! They weren't worn, but carpeting design looked like it was from the 1970s or the 1980s and hall lighting was relatively dim. Hopefully the HOA is redoing the common areas. We had a great time.

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.
