Property description

The Fran-Ma-Ray, a wonderful ocean front family beach house on the beautiful beach of Ocean Drive in North Myrtle Beach, is available for year-round rental. The Fran-Ma-Ray has the delightful and comfortable atmosphere of an old-style beach house, but with many modern conveniences.

The Fran-Ma-Ray, located at 821 South Ocean Boulevard of North Myrtle Beach, has been owned by the same family since it was built in 1939. After extensive damage during Hurricane Hazel in 1954, the Fran-Ma-Ray was rebuilt in 1955. It has been enjoyed by many family and friends since that time. In 2009-2010, The Fran-Ma-Ray underwent still another extensive remodeling. The updates include a new open front deck and five sets of new French doors in the living area which open up a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean. While the house now features many modern updates and additions (including central heat and air-conditioning, washer and dryer, cable TV, internet access and ceiling fans throughout), the original knotty-pine paneled and hardwood floors heart of the house has been retained and provides the nostalgic feel of an old-style beach house.

The Fran-Ma-Ray features all the comfort and convenience a vacationer could want with the Atlantic Ocean right outside your front door. Everything from the excitement of Myrtle Beach entertainment to the quiet of sitting and rocking on the front porch and watching the waves. The Fran-Ma-Ray offers it all!!

We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will enjoy our beach house as much as four generations of the Smith family and friends have over the last 70 years.
