ADVICE: No matter who you rent from, ask the following questions: Who cleans your unit and (even more importantly) who inspects the cleaning prior to my you have TWO flat screen TV's?.....does the main TV have surround sound or just the TV speakers? ........ do both TV's have HD boxes you have a FULL SIZE washer and dryer? you (the owners) personally greet your guests upon arrival? not let the "secure' booking propaganda (put out by VRBO) concern you; they do not like owners who rent directly to guests.

The Best Condo I have ever rented in Myrtle Beach

  • 5 of 5

I was there with my family for one week.. It had everything you could ask for and more... So CLEAN!!!! Everything the owner said in his post to offer was there and they did not miss a thing... Will definitely recommend and go back... The only draw back was the pool area.. A little small compared to other resorts.... but we made it work because we knew how wonderful the condo was..... We traveled a great distance, so having all that they listed in condo made it much easier to travel... and less to pack... Thanks again Joe and Natasha.... We will be back.

Great family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with our 3 young children and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The owners were great, met us there on arrival and were available in an instant if needed. There was a problem with the washer and Joe made sure that the problem was dealt with so that we could still travel home with all of the laundry finished. There is nothing that they have not thought of, even down to luxiourous pillows and bottles of cold water in the fridge. Everything was excellent quality. The resort pools were great, parking was tight for a full size pick-up, but we managed to find a spot easily. My husband and I slept on the pull out sofa since it was the only queen bed and were pleasantly surprised by the comfort. We will be staying again!

Very nice, great communication with owner

  • 5 of 5

You will love staying at Joe & Natasha's condo. Very easy to book, sent in my deposit and Joe called to confirm receipt. We met them at the condo and got a tour. They really have thought of everything. We didn't have to buy anything from the grocery store except the food we wanted for the week. They provided cups, paper plates, spices/seasoning, bottled water, all paper products, quality toilet paper (I'm picky), beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, cushions for the lounge chairs. This place really does have everything you could possibly need. We had a great time and will book again!

Nicest Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Myrtle Beach for nearly 30 years. This condo is by far the best place we ever stayed at for the price. How sweet it is! Brand new front end loading washer & dryer, surround sound television with stereo, with upgraded cable, comfortable, clean and highly maintained furniture, bed, and carpeting. Joe was there to greet and welcome us when we arrived. So many extras Joe made available to us: Padded beach chairs, boogie boards, lounge chair pads and so much more. The Resort is only a few years old, and the pool, hot tub, grounds, and common areas are very well maintained. We no longer have to go hotel/resort hopping anymore! We are planning a return trip next year, and many more in the future, for sure!

Absolutely Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? We just got back from spending a week in Joe's Condo and I have to say that it was the nicest by far that we have been to. The beds were very comfortable and having everything stocked so that you don't have to worry about little things was great! My friends were jealous when we compared condo's. We loved it and will be back! Thanks Joe!
