Property description

The Sea Unicorn, our spacious family home of 2000 sq ft, with its lovely balcony views, sits at the end of Ocean Boulevard on a half acre lot about 100 feet from the ocean on the west side of a cul-de-sac. Our Ocean Boulevard is only about a dozen or so lots long, cut off on the north end by the Myrtle Beach State Park, and on the south end by the Lake that comes from the park and flows in our back yard. The far south end of the lake flows into the ocean so the tidal brackish water, a mix of salt and fresh, supports a miriad of diverse life. You have to see this natural wonder to believe it.

The eighteen-hundred square feet of Non-Smoking, rental space on the lower level include three bedrooms with one king, two queen, 1 queen sofa-sleeper. You can bring single inflatable beds, more people is additional charge., . There's also a living/dining area about sixteen by thirty-five feet, a twelve foot by twenty-six foot fireplace room that can be closed off as another bedroom (air mattress), separate laundry room with beach toys and chairs, two full bathrooms, a third shower room, a half bathrm, and completely equipped Euro Cab kitchen. Wireless Internet access is provided.

The 2 east bedroom's, each with a glass block wall, and each with sliding glass doors, open up to the patio that faces the beach, and the fireplace room glass doors open to your private pool patio and the Lake in your huge back yard. +

All bedrooms have sliding glass doors, except one has single glass door.

The private 46 foot X 16 ft salt water pool features 4 pairs of built in seats, 2 with jets, and a kidney shaped spillover, a separate hot tub for relaxation in our beautiful back yard with fruit trees, Crepe Myrtles, and more. The 140 ft deep lawn stretches to our lake, and a rope swing hanging from the large oak tree that shades a picnic table Other extras include 2 row boats, paddle boat, grill, porch swings, kiddie slide, and a basketball net. It is like a little private park.

Pets are an extra $10/night plus an additional non-refundable deposit of $30. Owners must also provide proof of shots, and also proof of flea treatment. Pets are limited to the rec areas only (not allowed in bedrms), and not allowed on furniture.

You may bring your own linens, or we can provide you with linen service. Ask us about the check out cleaning service.

Long Bay Estates enjoys one of the widest beaches on the strand since we have no high rises for a couple of miles in either direction, and the State Park stretches for about one and a half miles along the coast. A walk up the beach takes you to the State Park Pier for fishing or ice cream, or walk a little further to Springmaid Pier for breakfast or lunch. If you prefer to walk only a few feet for fishing, you can surf fish on the beach or simply just walk in your own back yard to the Lake and fish for fresh and salt water crittters from the bank or from our private boats.

The Sea Unicorn is truly a unique family vacation of fun and privacy, yet still in the heart of the town, close to the excitement, There is no worry about who to call if there's a problem, since the owner lives upstairs on the north side of the property. Call soon, we book quickly.

Market Commons is bicycle riding or golf cart distance and is home to a lovely lake for walking around, a park for kids with a "Music Garden", restaurants, bars dining, shopping, movies, exercise, ball fields, , all in the Low Country style of Charleston.

About 2 miles up the Hwy 17 is Radical Ropes. Broadway at the Beach is about 5 miles.

The Myrtle Beach State Park is a walk up the beach where nothing but nature touches the sea, and our neighborhood.

We are close to so much , yet hidden from chaos and traffic, nessled quietly among the trees, on the lake, by the ocean. We are our own little park.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: The Sea Unicorn has been our family home since 1978. It was a simple wooden beach house with an unfinished downstairs. Little by little, my parents added the porches, the fireplaces, laundry room, brick, greenhouse, garage, patios, flowers, trees. Hurricane Hugo tried to take it but the family home stood firm, even the greenhouse, well the frame anyway. Dad built it with 4x4's, notched, and huge 6' bolts, and poured concrete. Mom said, 'whats your father building now?'. 'A green house for you.' 'What with all those 4x4s and those huge bolts?' ''He said he wanted to make sure it was still here if a Hurricane blew through'. And so it did. The house lost the downstairs, most of the roof, and we had to gut the rest, but we built back with the same love and devotion, with updates, but in keeping with the character and nostalgia of our family memories. Our green row boat is the very boat my Dad purchased when he arrived and used himself for fishing. It ended up on the other side of the lake in Hurricane Hugo, but we found it and brought it home, and there it remains, in Daddy's spot by the Lake. We invite you to share the quiet, peaceful pleasure of our lake with its wildlife on one side, the sound and the feel of the ocean on the other, and a few minutes walk up one of the widest beaches in Myrtle, the State Park. We are sure you will enjoy our family home as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Myrtle Beach, SC, USA:
We love our quiet, relaxing neighborhood. We feel we have everything; the ocean is to the front and the lake is on the back, the State park is at the end of the road. Its our little piece of paradise, hidden from the mainstream, yet still centrally located to everything, restaurants, amusements, golf.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
For years Long Bay Estates was called Myrtle Beach's best kept secret. This exclusive little neighborhood is small and secluded, hard to see from the main road, hidden in the trees , by the sea, and on a lake. Its peaceful, relaxing, remote feeling, yet close to everything. And the half acre lot is large enough for games, sports, fun. It is your own little park.
