Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: I own several beach homes in the area of various sizes and sites. I have designed and decorated them how I would like to enjoy a vacation home to rent. It is more like visiting someone's home, as my renters have often said to me. I will allow some pets with restrictions and with a pet fee depending upon size and breed. I do NOT accept cats or pet with excessive shedding or over 60#. You can tell from my photo, I am a animal lover.

Why Murrells Inlet, SC, USA:
Rarely does a second row house have a unrestricted view of the beach and ocean plus the beach access steps away. An additional plus is the block walk to the pier and to the local hotdog and food restaurants as well as beach stores, bike and kayak rentals. All this is great for teenagers.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
All listed above, immediate beach access and view, location to all types of entertainment and food. BUT the UNRESTRICTED view of ocean! NO-ONE in front of my house is a rarity.
