Very spacious clean

  • 4 of 5

My husband children and grandchildren all had great time at this property. The only thing I would change is a king bed downstairs. This home had everything we needed and was so close to the beach. I highly recommend this house and the owners were wonderful to deal with.

Clean and very nice.

We really enjoyed our stay. The home was clean and spacious enough for all 11 people we had. A minute walk to the beach. We will definitely stay here again!

Good location, good owner

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying in the Ocean Lakes community for spring break. We usually stay in an oceanfront hotel or condo in Myrtle Beach, but decided to mix it up this time because we were traveling with friends. The home itself needs some updates/repairs, but the owners were responsive and accommodating and the other features of the property made our stay a positive one.


- This is one of the few houses I was able to find with a private bathroom for each bedroom. That was a huge advantage in my book, especially for staying with friends.

- The property location is pretty good for Ocean Lakes. It's on a quieter street on the edge of the community with a limited view of the ocean and a quick walk to the beach. It's also a 15 minute walk to the pools and arcade which is reasonable if you're healthy enough. Most people use golf carts to get around.

- The community has a lot of amenities and activities. The pools are nice and there is a new water park that looks fun, which was unfortunately closed for us due to being the early season. The arcade is also fun but pricey. We enjoyed playing ping-pong. There is a convenience store too but we did not visit it.


- We missed having a direct ocean view.

- There is some minor damage (a broken kitchen drawer, broken laundry closet door, etc.) and some of the furniture has seen it's day, and the carpet did not inspire confidence. But the owners did respond well to our requests and it seems like they try to keep it as clean as possible. I think the pictures online are a reasonably accurate representation of the real thing.

- While the community provides good amenities, the house itself is purely for function. Any entertainment beyond TV will either have to come with you or be provided by Ocean Lakes. Fair trade.

- Food options within the community are scarce. The fast food places by the pool seemed so-so and were quite crowded. Luckily, you have a full kitchen and there are plenty of other places to eat in Myrtle outside of Ocean Lakes.

- It gets pretty crowded. It was early season for us, yet it already felt like we were packed in everywhere. It was spring break, but I expect in the summer it's much worse. There are literally teenagers in golf carts cruising around everywhere and despite the ocean still being very cold, the sun was out and so the beach was packed.


- You probably want a golf cart

- On site mini-golf isn't free and Myrtle is the mini-golf capitol of the world. Go elsewhere.

We have rented this home for the last 5 years. It feels like home from home. It is perfect for the for us to rent I strongly recommed renting this home. The family that owns this home is awsome to rent from. If something isn't right they fix it right away. This is a 5 star plae.

first time to Ocean Lakes

  • 3 of 5

We loved our week at Ocean Lakes. Everyone was very friendly. We took our 2 sons, daughter in laws and grandchildren. The favorite part for the kids was the ride on the golf cart at night. The house was great, decor was very nice. The cleanliness of the house could have been better. But over all we would stay again.
