Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Wonderful ocean front home. Part of the Portofino IV Community. Relax on the covered porch overlooking a fantastic view of the ocean or take a swim in the community pool. Short boardwalk directly to the beach. Centrally located half way between the Surfside and Garden City piers.

We just finished the renovation (Spring 2015). Completely repainted on the inside, new living room furniture and replaced many of the light and bath fixtures. A very homey and welcoming beach house!

Large oceanview master bedroom and bath located on the second floor along with 4 other bedrooms and 4 baths. One bedroom and bath is conveniently located on the first floor. Each bedroom is equipped with it's own TV. For bedding information the house has 1 king bed (master), 2 bedrooms with 1 queen each, 1 bedroom with 2 queens and 1 bedroom with 2 singles. We have replaced the two twin mattresses in the downstairs bedroom that had caused issues in the past and now we have now replaced all four of the queen mattress sets, so you can experience a great nights sleep! The master has a deluxe pillow top king mattress set.

Kitchen, bar area, dining room and living room are all ajoining, so that family time can be enjoyed, along with a view from all areas of the ocean.

Convenient to Myrtle Beach and all the attractions, but out of the hustle, bustle and traffic. Close to local restraurants and attractions in Surfside and Garden City.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation in this beachfront home! There were 6 adults and 2 children, and there was ample space for everyone. The brand new deck was awesome as we enjoyed early morning coffee while watching the sunrise. We also enjoyed lunch every day on the deck. The short boardwalk to the beach was so convenient with 2 small kids. The layout of this beach house worked very well for our family. The kitchen was a nice size as was the living room and dining area. The first floor bedroom was convenient for naptime. The view from the spacious master bedroom was spectacular. The other three bedrooms upstairs worked very well for our family. This home was very conveniently located to restaurants and shopping. We went to Murrell's Inlet one day and got fresh seafood for dinner. This vacation home was exactly what our family wanted. We will stay here again!!!

Also, Mardi was great to work with! She was very helpful and responded to my questions in a very timely manner.

Great location and house

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our mini-vacation at this property. With 8 adults and 4 toddler boys might have been cramped in some properties, but this had just the right amount of space. It's a dream to step off the back deck right onto a nice, wide beach every day. The area is family friendly and wasn't too close to anything tourist trappy. Would love to stay here again!

Great for large family

  • 4 of 5

We are frequent visitors to this area and I have to say we enjoyed our stay. Owners are great to work with and very responsive. Home had everything we needed. Ultimate in convenience to the beach and great for kids. Deck was nice and looked like it had been recently updated. Parking was great even with 3 large vehicles. I would suggest getting the linen service. It worked out well for us. The only suggestion I might have is to change out the twin beds on the main floor for a queen or even a king if it fits. One of the couches is not comfortable and is due for replacement the other one is great. Overall a nice place and we would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: We will look into the possibility of putting a queen bed down stairs instead of the two twins. Our only thought is that since there are no other twin beds in the house, it works well for families that have small children and also they can nap during the day on the same main floor. I will look into the couch. We purchased it only 2 1/2 years ago and are not happy at all with how it has held up. We will either replace or I think the seat cushions can be redone. We appreciate hearing from out guests and do our best to make everyone comfortable!!

Overall the house was very nice and so close to the beach. The back porch was our favorite location!

  • 5 of 5

The biggest inconvenience was there were only 14 forks and not many more big plates. We were constantly washing silverware and finally used mostly paper plates and plastic forks. If the house is for 14 people you should have ample plates, cups and silverware. Also one of the TVs didn't have a cable box so it didn't get any channels. Other than that we were very happy. The porch and furniture on the porch was fantastic and very accommodating. Being directly on the beach was the best! Would definitely recommend! Also there is a serious drainage problem under the house when it rains. We were literally in water up over our ankles - not the case for all the houses in the complex and when we drove up in to surfside right next door - none of there's were flooded.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and comments. We will take care of adding more plates and silverware to the kitchen stock. We were also unaware of a missing cable box, so we will take care of that also. Concerning the drainage problem, there has been an issue with the storm drain in the parking lot. The Homeowner's Association is working with the city to rectify this. I will check and see where they stand on the issue. As always, we welcome all suggestions from our guests. Naturally we are not there during the summer months and like to know if items are needed.

The house was great. Nice and clean and had everthing we needed

  • 4 of 5

The place was great! We loved it. There was no toilet paper in any of the bathrooms. Is that normal? We could have dish soap and dishwasher detergent as well. Is this stuff usually included? No big deal if it isn't. Anyway, we loved it and are considering booking for next year as well.
