About Molly Ritchey

The things in life that are most precious to us are our family and the memories we build while vacationing together. After years of dreaming of owning property at the beach, our family finally found the perfect 'home away from home' in this new construction beach house in Surfside Beach.

We're land-locked Ohioans who dream year-round of spending time at the beach and have found that no matter what the season, the mild climate and beautiful lake and ocean views allow us to unwind and spend quality time together.

We've been blessed to have been able to travel and see the world and yet find our beach house the haven we all long to visit where we can spend time together.

A beautiful beach setting and family time spent together--life doesn't get much better than this!

Molly Ritchey purchased this house in 2011

Why Molly Ritchey chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

We chose this beach house in Surfside Beach simply because it offers our family the best of everything! Great weather, year 'round, and a perfect location for golf, tennis, swimming and sailing! We're away from the traffic snarls, high-rise hotels and chaos of Myrtle Beach, yet just steps from a pristine white beach. Within a 10 minute drive, we have a wide variety of golf courses, great dining, shopping and every imaginable family activity. We're also just 7 minutes away from Myrtle Beach International Airport, yet we're in the middle of the quiet oasis of Surfside Beach, a family-oriented community that caters to families who just want to spend quality time together in a beautiful, safe, and quiet environment. There is a true sense of pride in this community and a small-town friendliness that is warm and welcoming.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Above the Mango Deck. The entire house was clean and well equipped when we arrived. When they say all you need to bring is beach towels, clothes and food they are right. There were 4 families staying there and we had plenty of room. Loved having beach chairs, an umbrella, pool toys, and a grill. The location is great too, so close the ocean that you can walk back and forth. It was a blessing having a pool too since there were a lot of jellyfish in the ocean and some in our group enjoyed the hot tub too. Molly is great to work with. She kept in touch periodically before our trip and again afterwards. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and would definitely rent it again. Can't say enough about it. Our week was awesome!

Winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this rental. It was the perfect size/accommodation for two families with small children. Great location with proximity to the beach, we could walk to the pier, restaurants, and a play ground. We all enjoyed the hot tub, and the kids rode scooters in the driveway and to the lake. The house is beautiful and was furnished with everything we needed. We loved surfside beach and ended up with perfect weather for December (mid 70's!). The owner was great to work with and very responsive. Definitely recommend this rental!

Owner's Response: We totally agree with you...the beach is a great place to visit during the "off season!" The crowds are gone, there is much less traffic and many businesses and restaurants have wonderful discounts and specials that help make vacations very affordable.The best kept secret at the beach? The "Off-Season!" Thanks so much for taking time to review our property. We're glad your family had a great stay and we sincerely appreciate it that you took time to pass your comments on to our future guests.

Awesome Couples Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for the three couples who stayed here. Two of the couples were celebrating their 30th anniversaries together. I couldn't think of a better way to spend it. We were so lucky to have absolutely perfect weather the whole stay. The accommodations were very nice, and it was great having a pool and hot tub outside. One of the best things was the very close beach access. We could leave our things on the beach and pop back to the house for lunch, etc. Molly was so awesome about staying on top of everything before arriving, during our stay, and afterward as well. We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it highly to anyone!!

Excellent accomodations & location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Above the Mango Deck! The house was perfect for our 3 family group. The kitchen had everything we needed & enough dining room seating for all 14 of us to enjoy a few suppers "at home." The kids loved having lunch at the table by the pool. It was a nice shady spot to cool off & relax before heading back to the beach. We were so pleased with the very short walk to the beach. Much better than dealing with elevators at high rise condos. And the beach was not crowded! We could not believe all the extra beach chairs, boogie boards & coolers that were provided with the house! We had not stayed in Surfside in many years but really loved the area. Molly was wonderful to work with. Booking, payment & check-in were hassle free! Thanks so much for everything. Many great memories were made!

Wonderful Home for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family vacation. The home is very well equipped and there was ample room for everyone. The house was very clean, nicely furnished, and had everything we needed. It was wonderful to have linens included! The beach was just steps away and the home has everything needed for a day at the beach: beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, beach toys, etc. My family also loved the pool! Molly, the owner, was very organized, professional, and made everything very easy. It was a perfect home for a wonderful vacation!

Perfect Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was perfect for our family. A month before our trip we experienced the painful loss of our father. We used the week at this house for much needed family time and healing. And what a perfect place for healing! Our first impression when we walked in was how clean the place was and how it smelled cleaned, not just looked clean! The house was well stocked with everything you need....all we had to do was grocery shop and unpack our clothing. The kitchen had every appliance for cooking "at home" if that is what you wanted to do. We loved that each bedroom had a full bathroom. The pool area was fabulous, along with the hot tub - we used them both every day! And we were literally just a few steps from the beach. This house also had everything you need for a day at the beach (beach chairs, umbrella's, boogie boards and cooler). Additionally, this house is close to everything we wanted to do....the Marsh Walk at Murrells Inlet, the shops at Pawleys Island, restaurants, putt-putt golf, and the Grand Strand at Myrtle Beach. If I had to name a negative it would be that there isn't a gas grill outside, only a charcoal grill. But it really wasn't a big deal, we made due and charcoal grilled a few times. Molly was wonderful to work with and answered every question I had (and I sent her numerous emails)! Molly thanks for opening your beach house to us. We hope to visit Above the Mango Deck again!

Owner's Response: Oh, Krista, I'm so sorry for your loss. Hopefully the time away with your family was able to help all of you begin the healing process. We went to the beach following my mother's death and that time provided me with the tranquility I needed to start adjusting to life without her. Although I was torn about whether or not to even go, it was probably the best thing I could have done for myself at that time. I wish you peace and wonderful memories. Thanks, Krista, for taking the time at this difficult point in your life to review Above the Mango Deck for future guests. We're so glad you and your family were able to be together at the beach and we hope you were able to make some wonderful memories. We're happy to know that you found the amenities and cleanliness of our home exceeding your expectations. We (and our fantastic cleaning lady) try hard to make our home one guests will want to return to year after year by providing all the things for our guests that we would like to have ourselves when we vacation. We also listen to guest feedback and try to implement their suggestions. Like you, we would love to have a gas grill at the pool. Unfortunately, however, we haven't found a way to do that because of the necessity to refill the tank frequently with no one on site to do so when it is needed. We hope the oversized, park style grill that we have provided fills our guests' needs without the hassle of them having to start a meal only to find that the propane tank is empty. We will definitely try to see if we can find a solution and thank you for your suggestion. It was truly a pleasure to work with you on your vacation plans. We hope to see you again on a future trip to the beach!
