The Vagabond is located in the private residential neighborhood of Long Bay Estates which is far from the busy hotel beaches but a quick drive to everything you need. Since there is no public parking or access to its beach front and no through traffic, you'll find a peaceful get away from Myrtle Beach's hubbub of activity.
The house has spacious living areas for combined family vacationers. Hardwood oak and pine floors throughout the house help those with allergies. A well equipped kitchen with cabinet of spices and garden of herbs is popular with the cooks. From the breakfast room and back porch, watch eagles catch fish and swans swimming on the lake or paddle it in our canoe and get up close with the turtles and ducks. Small dogs (under 20 lbs.) are welcome.
Enjoy the 60 foot long front porch with rockers and a double swing. There are kiddie gates at the stairs on both porches. When the kids tire of the playground under the house they have only a 200 yard hop and skip to the beach. From there a ten minute walk lands you at the Myrtle Beach State Park with its playgrounds, nature center, trails, fishing, and coffee and ice-cream at the pier gift shop! Also enjoy riding our bikes around the neighborhood or along the paved paths of Market Common.
The living area is upstairs above the large garage and screened in porch.

Year Purchased: 1969
About the owner: I'm a school librarian and sixth of nine siblings who have inherited this property. The picture of me is from the beach when I was about 3 yrs old. l am holding a toy phone to my brother's ear. Please call me if you have any questions. I still like to talk! :-) My earliest memory of staying here is when my grandmother rented this house out, but kept the master suite (the current library) for herself as a get away. We came to visit and had to sleep in a tent in the back yard.
Why the Owner Chose Long Bay Estates (Myrtle Beach, SC, USA):
My grandmother bought this house in her retirement as a pre-fab ranch in 1969. She made the newspaper for being the first house brought to the area on a tractor trailer. She chose Long Bay for it's quiet residential neighborhood and proximity to art workshops at Spring Maid Beach. She called it 'The Counting House' and rented it yearly to military families from the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base. In 1989 Hurricane Hugo hit and knocked her off it's foundation; thus, she became the 'Vagabond'. Our father designed the additions and she was rebuilt on stilts according to federal guidelines. Momma Bette passed away in 2003 at 102 years old. The house is now owned by her daughter and grandchildren and her great grandchildren are enjoying it too. When we go down we find it most comfortable with two families and the grandparents.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the quiet atmosphere in our residential neighborhood away from the crowds; but, if we want entertainment it's all minutes from our house. We love walking (the little ones run all the way) to the pier for ice cream cones at the State Park and Murrell's Inlet is one of our favorite places to find local seafood. The Vagabond is a lovely peaceful place to get away from it all!
