About Mark Straffen

I've lived in Cleveland, Ohio, all my life. I'm a Captain on the Cleveland Fire Dept. and been on the department for twenty five years. I have three sons between the ages of 21-27. I've been visiting Myrtle Beach for over twenty years now and have seen the tremendous growth the city has experienced since my first visit. It's been a vacation destination for my family since 1990 and I believe we have visited Myrtle Beach every year, at least once, if not twice each year, with the exception of one year in the past twenty-one years. Family memories and photos from our trips will last a lifetime and a tradition, I hope, my sons will continue as they begin their families.

Mark Straffen purchased this condo in 2010

Why Mark Straffen chose Myrtle Beach

During my years visiting the area I vacation in all areas of Myrtle Beach. I always ending up coming back to this area of the city. I believe this area of Myrtle Beach has always been more upscale and less hectic than other areas. This specific location has such a beautiful and unobstructed view looking north really sold me on this location. No other resorts blocking my panoramic views of the ocean for miles and just a quiet peaceful area.

What makes this condo unique

The original dream for this resort was to build something unique, upscale, and first class and I believe this was achieved with the Horizon at 77th. No cookie cutter design or 'condotels' here. Everything from the climate controlled hallways, to the attention to detail, even in the common areas, unique designs of the condos, room contents, and color choices, and the overall appearance of the building itself shows the vision the developer had when designing this resort and truly making it a premier resort in Myrtle Beach.

Great location - Perfect for two people!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfectly situated between all the restaurants, shops and attractions of Myrtle Beach. It also is steps away from the beach. The condo provides a beautiful view of the building's pool and a lazy river. This one bedroom suite is ideal for a couple. Large master bedroom with king size bed; beautiful views of the coast and ocean; large tub/shower; updated condo with modern design and appliances.

Ideal vacation accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our stay in MB. We are frequent flyers to MB and we choose this condo each time we plan to be in the area. It's beautifully decorated, well maintained, on the beach, and close to everything. The balcony view is perfect. The owner Mark is accessible, knowledgeable and responds promptly to emails, calls, etc. This is not a hotel room - the amenities are too nice. We also take advantage of the pool, lazy river and fitness room at the Horizon. We recommend this place to our friends and family so you know it has to be nice.

My best stay ever in Myrtle Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

I've been going to Myrtle Beach for 25 years and can honestly say this was by far the best condo, cleanest, and best location I've ever stayed at in the area. Mark, the owner, was the best communicator ever and responded via email or by phone within 1-2hrs to answer any questions prior to our arrival and quick to answer a question upon our arrival.

We will be making this our regular rental every year moving forward because not going to do any better with the location, value for the price, and the best owner we've dealt with.

Thanks again!!!!!

Great Myrtle Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this clean, well-maintained Myrtle Beach condo. The location was the best! It is not Ocean-front rather it is Ocean-view but it is a great view over a wooded, housing area which extended our view of the beach! The owner was very helpful in the reservation process and made sure we had all of the information we needed to make our stay a success. We would definitely recommend this condo!
