Beautiful 5 year old beach house on stilts - brightly decorated, colorful and airy rooms. From the surfboard with the shark-bite to the giant rainbow flipflop, you will be constantly reminded YOU ARE AT THE BEACH!
Peaceful streets, just 3 blocks from the ocean; relax on the huge balcony porch, eat steak cooked on the grill, read a book, drink some tea, take a nap or just sit and take it all in. You will be so glad you came.
We live in Chapin, SC and vacation at this property ourselves. We rent it to others to cover costs and share the blessing.
Kevin Hunsaker and Debra Hunsaker purchased this house in 2004
We chose Ocean Lakes due to the family friendly atmosphere, and the security and upkeep of the grounds. We first vacationed here as campers and gradually moved up to buying a house.
Ocean Lakes is really a town within a town - you really do not ever need to leave the park. It's relaxing, offers small store, laundry mat, free spring water, arcade and recreation center, church services, Meet N Eat for meals, ice cream stand, indoor and outdoor pools, water park on premises beginning May 2016. This gated community has it's own security. Pools, water park and ice cream stand are seasonal.
We enjoyed our stay at the beach house in September. The weather was less than delightful, and the house was large enough that we were not on top of each other while stuck inside. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was there. The owner was able to rent to us on short notice which we greatly appreciate, I work an on call job and cannot make long distance plans. I don't want to deduct a star is but there were some minor annoying issues
*The propane for the grill was empty
*The bar stools were wobbly because they were missing braces, so we had to take turns at the table.
*There were no good knives in the kitchen, fortunately we took our own because our trip was devoted to fishing anyway
* The dryer had to be ran twice to get a load of clothing dry
*The people across the street were very loud on the weekend... I know this is seasonal, they were watching a sports game of some sort... but they were loud late into the night all weekend.
Like I said... an excellent stay over all, just minor inconveniences that would definitely not detour us from renting again.
Thank you for your hospitality and clean, spacious home.
