Myrtle Beach SC

Incredibly peaceful, magnificent sunrises, coming back in October this year

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Mr Larry has been a pleasure to work with. I rented the 2 bedroom/2 bath cottage directly on the water. I've never been so relaxed in my life. The unit was incredibly clean, updated appliance included wonderful full gas stove. Balcony from master bedroom allowed me to wake up to incredible sunrises. First floor deck, equipped with most comfy chaise chairs and dining table all while watching boats go by, sun rising. Entire place is all windows so every day is calming and peaceful as you look out onto the water. Just the most peaceful time and I came up from the Myrtle Beach shore. Incredibly clean, well appointed. There was not a thing needed. Free secure internet. Pets allowed. I'm returning in October for 3 weeks for relaxation. This time I bring my camera tripod & more zoom lenses. This is paradise.

Delightful stay at this very well-situated unit

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous view off the decks (two); 180 degrees unobstructed, private view. All modern furnishings, excellent HVAC, easy walk to main restaurants. Staff were very friendly, accommodating. Just a few blocks from bridge access to Sandy Hook and Sea Bright.

Peaceful, quiet. I'll definitely be back.

I grew up in the area and have since moved away. I LOVE bringing my family and friends to this place. It encompasses everything I grew up with plus the luxuries I didn't have. No need to leave, other than to walk downtown to a great restaurant. AMAZING value and blows the SJ beach towns away!!!!!!!!!!!!

Perfect Jersey Shore

  • 5 of 5

I grew up near the Jersey Shore but live in the Bay Area now, and I am so glad I found this place to stay when we visit family back in NJ! We will certainly return here, if it's available. The place was perfect for entertaining, family visits, small children, and getting to the beach quickly. This is a brand new 2-bedroom that has all the modern amenities you could want. It's 2 floors, and the ground floor has a great open kitchen and living area with bathroom. It opens to a deck that overlooks the river. The upstairs has 2 bedrooms (with views of New York!) and a bathroom. There is a great little sandy area for kids to play practically within earshot. And the beach is just a short drive over the bridge that you see from your patio. There are restaurants you can walk to. And the owner is incredibly hospitable, helpful, and flexible. I'm so glad we found this gem!
