About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our ocean-view beachfront property is like your home away from home! We visited many condos in Myrtle Beach before we settled on this one, and then completely transformed it from a standard 'hotel room' to a lovely comfortable vacation home. In January 2012, the kitchen was transformed into a cook's dream with exotic italian granite countertops and updated cabinets. All the beds are extremely comfortable with new pillow-top mattresses and lovely 100% cotton bedding. We put in new dvd players, and flat screen TVs in the living area and master. The carpet, tile, paint and furnishings are also up-to-date and new. From the stackable washer and dryer, to the wireless internet and Time-Warner cable, all the amenities of home are at your finger-tips. We truly put a lot of love and attention into our unit and have spent many happy days here. We truly hope you enjoy your visit and return to stay with us in the future!

About Karen Sturkie

Chris and Karen love real estate and own numerous rental homes. This is our first of two condos in Myrtle Beach, and by far our favorite! We love to travel and dream about investing in properties all over the US and the world, making each property a little extension of ourselves and an enjoyable place to share with others! "Love Our Second Home!"

Karen Sturkie purchased this condo in 2008

Why Karen Sturkie chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

We have been visiting Myrtle Beach for many years, and since we only live 4 hours away, decided we wanted to buy a beach vacation home. We searched for many months before settling on Beach Colony. We love the family-friendly atmosphere as well as the quiet, laid back location. In minutes you can be at the 'strip' or Broadway at the Beach, yet it's a quick trip back to our 'home-away-from-home.' Beach Colony is a unique little 'gem' in the heart of a residential district of Myrtle Beach.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit used to look like a 'typical' hotel condo with out-dated furnishing and fixtures. We completely renovated it with comfort and convenience in mind. The beds are a dream to sleep in, and the furniture is comfortable and stylish. In January of 2012, we updated the kitchen with exotic italian granite countertops, updated cabinets, and a breakfast bar. All appliances, carpet and tile are new, so you have no worries. Bring your laptop and enjoy the wireless internet access, while sipping a cup of coffee or a glass of wine on the balcony... this is living!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our experience was very pleasant. Having a w/d right in condo was a great accommodation. Came home with little laundry to do. :) The condo has everything you need and then some and the grounds are just beautiful. Would stay again!! Thank you Karen.

We had an amazing time in the condo! The view was beautiful and very relaxing. The entire place was tastefully decorated and felt like home. The beds were extremely comfortable and we all had a great nights sleep. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could possible need. The use of the pools and lazy river was awesome! The kids loved the lazy river! It was great being in close proximity to all the attractions. Overall, it was a perfect family vacation!!

Thanks for the use of the amazing condo!! We hope to stay again next summer!

Beautiful, spacious condo

  • 4 of 5

Karen was amazing to work with up to and during our stay at the beautiful condo at Beach Colony. It was plenty of space for our family of 4. The kitchen had everything you could imagine. It was very comfortable and we'll plan on staying here again when we return to Myrtle Beach.

A cozy home away from home

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently enjoyed a three month stay in the Sturkie's two bedroom condo . the entire condo has been updated , and is very tastefully decorated . You won't see those gaudy big floral printed bedspreads , rather everything here is tasteful , and comfortable. the King size bed is very comfortable. the Kitchen is well equipped . I love to cook , so pots are essential and I must say these were the best from any of the places that we have previously stayed . And of course we enjoyed the big screen tv as well . I think that everything has been done to ensure that you feel like you are HOME .

We enjoyed all the amenities that Beach Colony has to offer also.

We enjoyed the pool and hot tub almost every day . The Sauna and the exercise room were also something that we put to use . The staff really keeps

everything very clean . We have stayed in a number of hotels and the amenities Beach Colony offers are far superior to some much grandeur hotels . the grounds are beautiful.

We had a issue with the locks during our stay , customer service took care of it to our satisfaction .
