Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

TROPICAL PARADISE describes our immaculate beach house that is decorated to 'beachy' perfection with colorful thematic rooms. It has just been painted throughout; cleaned from top to bottom; and filled with beach-themed decor for your enjoyment. It's fully furnished with three bedrooms, two full baths, and an extra-large great room and kitchen featuring cathedral ceilings.

The great room has a huge wrap-around leather sofa including a large TV complete with DVD/VCR. The kitchen has cabinets galore that are filled to the brim with utensils. This fully-equipped kitchen offers a refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, and microwave mounted above the stove. There is a standard-sized washer and dryer off the main hallway.

Bedrooms: We have a TV in each bedroom complete with DVD/VCR. The master bedroom has a king bed; bedroom 2 has a queen; and, bedroom 3 has twins. It's located at 1881 Ocean Lakes Campground, Myrtle Beach, SC.

Amenities: Enjoy our extra-large covered front deck, side deck, and stairway for rain protection and lounging. There's ample uncovered decking for sunbathing as well. The outdoor ceiling fans supply a cool breeze on a hot summer day while you enjoy outdoor dining on the upper deck or below in the Tropical Lounge. Parking space below the house will accommodate four small to mid-size cars. Wow! An enclosed outdoor shower, for rinsing sand off after frolicking on the beach, is located on the ground level. Our golf car will prove to be quite handy for transportation to the beach and scenic cruising at Ocean Lakes.

Cleaning Rules: The house cleaning rules are posted on the fridge in the beach house, and the cleaning products are provided for you to clean at your departure. If the home has not been cleaned , your deposit will be withheld to pay for a cleaning service after the fact.

Fabulous Location: It's located at 1881 Ocean Lakes Campground, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Newer homes on street; all on stilts. Located close to the South Gate for easy access to and from the campground. This is a plus since traffic will get hectic. No through traffic on our street which makes it much safer for kids and quieter/ more relaxing for adults.

Linens/Supplies: You will need to bring your linens (sheets, towels, etc.), bath soaps, detergents and paper products. Please note that Ocean Lakes is a family-oriented, gated, and constantly patrolled community. All guests must abide by Ocean Lakes rules and regulations.

About Mary Crawley

My husband and I are thrilled about our recent beach house purchase (Feb., 2012)! I'm a former school teacher and an author of children's books. When our daughter accepted a job in Myrtle Beach and relocated here with her family, we began searching for a house as well.

Mary Crawley purchased this house in 2012

Why Mary Crawley chose Ocean Lakes

We could think of no other place to purchase a home than Ocean Lakes. In fact, my husband and I have camped with our children here numerous times over the years. We love the premise that it's gated with a guard on duty at all times; officers are everywhere maintaining safety; and, it's family- oriented.

What makes this house unique

The Ocean Lakes beach area is well-maintained; the pools are huge; and, even the laundry facility is clean. We especially like the golf car atmosphere and the annual golf car day.

All around fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

I initially rented Mike & Mary's place in October for our wedding anniversary. Then the hurricane came. So, Mary & I agreed that I could come at the end of January/beginning of February to celebrate my husband's birthday. Mary even called Ocean Lakes and got the office to exchange my parking passes, so I would not have to pay the daily resort fee twice.

The house was exactly as advertised. I couldn't have been happier on arrival. We were even lucky enough to enjoy 70 degree weather during our stay.

From start to finish (I received my returned deposit back before the promised 10 days were up after the house was inspected at my departure), Mary was a joy to work with. No worries...You will love this house.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for penning such an impeccable review! I, too, was deeply saddened that the hurricane spoiled your anniversary trip, but quite elated that we could work out another vacation time that you could celebrate another blessed event! Correct advertising is paramount! I diligently try to keep the pics updated on VRBO, so that potential tenants can not only view our beach house with its current decor, but see if it is also well-maintained!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time staying in Mike and Mary's home. The location, while not on the beach, was great for us because it is close to the entrance and on a quiet, dead end street so we didnt have any traffic which was wonderful since we ate every meal out on the deck! We really loved the fact that the golf cart is included - it's a must for getting back and forth to the beach and just cruising around in general. The house itself was very nice and sparkling clean upon arrival. The couch is super comfy, as are the mattresses. Overall, we had a great time and hope to return!!

Owner's Response: Your review depicts the home's location perfectly! Tenants, as well as Mike and I, love the tranquil location of our beach house. When you are on vacation, you dread the thought of being bombarded with loud noises or waiting in an endless line of traffic to exist the park for eating, shopping, sight-seeing, and excursions. This serine area for of our "Tropical Paradise" beach house lends itself to easy accessibility to entrances/exits which is an amenity that is priceless!! Further, the setting is perfect for watching television outside in the tiki lounge, barbecuing on the grill, and even snoozing in the hammock.

Loved this house

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. It was nice and very clean, it was in a peaceful location which was perfect for my family and I. Mary was great at communicating and so very sweet. This house made us feel like we was at home away from home.

Owner's Response: "Your home away from home" is our top priority for your vacation; and, we are so thankful that you felt that while staying in our beach house! It is my pleasure to speak with tenants and answer any questions or concerns that they may have. I truly enjoy it! In fact, I am always spinning ideas around in my head about how to make improvements, and tenants' feedback is vital to accomplishing that reality. Hopefully, as a result, your family's vacation in our home will be "etched in your memory" as the best one ever!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

WONDERFUL experience with Mary and her beautiful home. Mary was always accessible, understanding and went above and beyond to answer all my many questions and to accommodate our needs.

The home is PERFECTLY situated in Ocean Lakes. It truly could not have been any better. The street is a dead end and I felt comfortable allowing my toddlers to ride bikes and scooters; accessibility to coming and going could not have been any easier thru the south gate; the home had every item we needed to cook with, and trust me - I have been in many that did not!; size wise, it was completely perfect for my in-laws and us; completely comfortable and I felt like it was "home".

It was obviously and apparent to all that the home was well taken care of, and loved by Mary. We thoroughly enjoyed the large deck and the cool evening breezes. I have never spent as much time enjoying sitting outside as I did this past week.

I cannot imagine what the home lacks or needs as every consideration has been attended too.

We researched many places, before, during and after our stay and can confidently communicate the exceptional value Mary's home offers. My only complaint is...I am not there right now!

Owner's Response: Thanks for this fabulous, detailed review! Location was a major factor in our decision to purchase this home. In fact, my husband and I spent approximately a year searching Ocean Lakes for a beach house with this perfect location: easy access for driving in and out of the resort; quiet street with beautiful homes on both sides; and, in an area where small children can play safely. Decorating excursions for the beach house are constant and fun! Our sole objectives for all beach house purchases are to make tenants' vacations extremely comfortable, unimaginably unique, and as positively memorable as possible!

Spring break vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip booking through VRBO and yes I was very nervous about process, but after contacting Mary she immediately set my mind at ease. It is apparent she is truly sweet, caring and wants you to enjoy your stay. Their home is just as in the pictures, clean, super cute and has everything you need. My family of 6 (all adult sized) was able to stay together with plenty of our own space. Much nicer than having multiple hotel rooms. The porch is amazing to sit outside for breakfast, read a book, even in the rain we enjoyed it and stayed dry. Location was quiet, easy to get in and out of campground and only a short golf cart ride away from pools, beach, store, etc. I recommend booking you will not be disappointed. Thank you Mary for a fun spring break! Joan

Owner's Response: Thanks for the glowing review, Joan! My ultimate goal is for each tenant that enters the door of our beach house to experience the vacation of a lifetime! My mind is relentless in thinking of ways to accomplish this objective such as: constructing a Tiki Lounge downstairs for relaxing, watching television, and grilling out; stocking the kitchen with everything that a cook will need; and, decorating the house with lovely decor to make you feel like royalty! Most importantly, I thoroughly enjoy talking with each visiting family and answering any questions or concerns that they may have!
