Our beautiful golf/vacation villa is located in the prestigious Barefoot Resort that was named the North America Golf Resort of the Year at the 2017 IAGTO Awards is located in North Myrtle Beach, SC. Our villa was the last Ironwood building built in 2005. We are located in a very quiet private setting in a cul-de-sac. Our second floor location offers a splendid view. From the master bedroom and the back deck are views of the #14 hole of the Greg Norman Golf Course, and a view of the Inter-coastal Waterway.
The Master bedroom has a king size bed (which may be split into 2 single beds). There is a large dresser with 7 drawers, a large television with Blue-ray player, bed side table with lamp, clock radio, phone, and a large walk-in closet. A spacious full bathroom with a tub/shower (Hotel Spa shower head) is attached to the Master bedroom. A large 5 blade ceiling fan provides a cooling breeze in the hot summer months. Did we mention the views of the Norman Golf Course and the Inter -coastal Waterway from the large bedroom windows?
The second bedroom has 2 twin beds. A 3 drawer dresser, TV, phone, clock radio, bedside table with a lamp, a large 4 blade ceiling fan, and a closet with full length sliding-mirrored doors adds to your comfort in this bedroom.

We have private Internet WI-Fi in our villa and also free nation-wide phone calls including Canada. We plan on using our villa as our future retirement home. We are fortunate to have some very capable home decorators in our family. The wall paintings and the home furnishings have been selected to reflect the traditional southern home décor. The villa is stocked with 5 star hotel quality linens. Our villa was freshly painted last fall.
Property is equipped with high quality air filters to aid people with allergies. Filters are inspected regularly by property management and replaced as needed. The facility is non-smoking and no pets are allowed.
Right next door to our building is the only picnic and barbecue grill area in the Ironwood neighborhood. This makes it very convenient for the chefs in your family. A welcome package will greet you on your arrival with coupons and information for local attractions. A private outdoor pool is located a short walk from our villa. Included with a rental of our villa are pool tags to use this pool (like property owners may do). The pool tags are distributed by the Ironwood HOA to all dues paying property owners. The pool tags are considered to be very valuable property, so if a pool tag is lost a $50 charge is assessed against your security deposit.
The ocean beach is a few blocks away and public parking and public access is available. A free beach shuttle for all residents and guests runs on a regular schedule from the Ironwood pool to the ocean and back.
The recently opened Bi-Lo Shopping center is conveniently located for all Barefoot residents and guests. You can access the center on a short by-pass road without going out on the very busy Hwy 17. The center contains a grocery store, restaurants, drug store, etc. Bi-Lo and Walgreens have $1 DVD rental machines.
What else can be said about the Barefoot Resort area? We have been vacationing in North Myrtle Beach since the mid-1970s. We always preferred this area because of its family type atmosphere. The downtown Myrtle Beach area is very crowded with constant traffic.
The Grand Strand has over 60 miles of sparkling warm waters and pristine sandy beaches. National Geographic Magazine rates this area as one of the finest beach areas in the US. The Weather Channel rates the area as a top 10 family friendly destination. Southern Living describes the area – Favorite Beach, Favorite getaway destination, and Favorite family destination.
In the Grand Strand area there are eight live entertainment theaters with nearly 11,400 seats. The list includes the Dolly Parton Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show, the Alabama Theatre, the Carolina Opry Show, Medieval Times, and the Palace Theatre, etc.
At the entrance to the Barefoot Resort is the Alligator Adventure which is one of the largest exotic reptile parks in the world. Adjacent to the Alligator Adventure is the Barefoot Landing. This outdoor themed shopping area contains over 100 shops and restaurants. Once again, no need to use the HWY 17 to enter Barefoot Landing.
So, whatever your vacation plans will include, the Grand Strand area has something for every one to enjoy. Adding to your vacation pleasure would be a stay at our villa. This is always a better alternative to staying in a motel/hotel room.
