About Doug and Vicki Hunt

Vicki and I vacationed in Myrtle Beach for twenty years before moving down here from West Virginia. We have a home in Loris, which is 30 minutes inland. After the last of six children left the nest, I retired from law and now Vicki and I sell real estate through our company. One of our daughter's live in Charleston. They love to come and visit and our grand daughter LOVES our pools. We rent our home out when we are busy traveling and visiting our 5 other children. We call it HOME!

Doug and Vicki Hunt purchased this condo in 2012

Why Doug and Vicki Hunt chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

We lived here in SC for ten years and visited or stayed at every beach from Edisto in Charleston to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. When the bargains of the real estate market collapse made this place affordable, we moved quickly. The number one factor for this property is the guest return rate. When vistors actually have thousands of choices and come back to the same place every year, it must be special. They are right. We can go do any shopping within minutes. There are great restaurants in walking distance. The nearby pier is fun and an event in itself. The beauty of Myrtle Beach in 15 minutes and Charleston in 1 hr 45 min!

What makes this condo unique

Our Beach Home is a half a mile from the Garden City pier and is between Myrtle Beach State Park and Huntington Beach State Park. It is close to Brookgreen Gardens, a must see for artists and nature lovers. We are unbelievably close to the ocean. Honestly, We have one of the largest indoor pool complexes on the strand.

As for the unit itself, we have updated and have wall mounted HD TV flat screens in all the rooms. New appliances and we have nicely furnished the condo. The master bed is as comfortable a king bed as you can get. We have everything here you would have at home in the kitchen (I recommend you eat out, its your vacation!) We have some updates this season. We have added a full bed in the 2nd bedroom instead of the futon and installed cable too. In the unit, we have our own personal WiFi for faster usage. We hope you will like our additions.

Great Location

  • 2 of 5

The location was great. Check in very simple. The unit was well stocked and clean upon arrival.

That being said, we found the unit to be in obvious need of updating in every area. The TV's are kind of clunky to operate, though this may be the fault of the cable provider. The unit is very small, and the beds extremely uncomfortable. The guest bath is so small as to be nearly unusable. There is a spa tub in the master bath that is located on a built-up portion of the floor. This is, I would think, to make it easier to access the pumps/motors beneath the spa. However, the step up is very poorly designed and is a definite hazard, both getting in and getting out of the tub/shower.

The resort suffered significant damage from Hurricane Mathew, and is in the process of completing repairs. The outdoor bar/grill is currently closed.

We have been going to Myrtle Beach for many years, and quite honestly, this trip was disappointing due to the condo unit.

For the record, we did compare the pictures of the unit to the actual unit, and found they did portray the unit. It seems that this unit photographs well.

Excellent experience!

  • 4 of 5

Doug and Vicki Hunt are by far the best that we have ever rented a condo from! I will search for them the next time I want to visit the Myrtle Beach area! They were helpful, replied to my inquiries very quickly, and even called us after our arrival to be sure everything was ok. The unit was fairly clean, and well- supplied. The location was perfect for a family vacation; ideal beach access, only a few minute drive to grocery stores and a variety of tourist spots, including restaurants. The building itself is beginning to look a bit run down - the elevators weren't working half the time and the snack bar was closed, the sauna didn't hear. But these are things the Hunts can't control. This was a non-smoking unit, but the unit next to us apparently allowed smoking and every evening the man next to us smoked cigars on his balcony until late in the night. So, we had to close our balcony door each evening and couldn't enjoy the view and sounds. That was a disappointment, but again, nothing that would have been prevented. Overall, we loved this place and will stay here again! Kudos to the Hunts!

Amazing Beach Access!

  • 5 of 5

This home away was a great place for our family spring break! Awesome beach front access! Literally we went down some stairs and walked onto the beach. We immensely enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub with our little ones when it was too cold or the ocean was rough. This condo is close to awesome restaurants and Myrtle Beach, but away from the crowds.

Our hosts were friendly and very sweet! I cannot wait to visit again! Highly recommended.

Comfortable and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

We booked the night before arrival. Owner's were very accommodating at the last minute. Beautiful view, clean, and quiet. Miles of beach to walk. Indoor heated pool and hot tub. Outdoor pool is not heated. Kitchen had essentials, including toaster and coffee maker. No blender. Beds decent and nice television sets. We stayed in early March. Mom and daughter trip. I would definitely stay again if in the area!!!

The Sounds and View of the Beach were Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo met all of our needs but the fact it was on the beach with the sounds and beauty of the ocean won us over!! It is located a few miles from Myrtle Beach, near restaurants and shopping as well as Brookgreen Gardens. We did use the rocking chairs in the picture!!! A perfect location for a relaxing vacation!

Garden City has been the favorite spot on the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach of couples and families for generations. It is between the hustle and bustle of the teenagers and night life of central Myrtle Beach and calmer wetlands and communities south of the strand. Most convenient location for activities, shopping, boating, Golf and all the vacation have to do's. This area has a really high percentage of returning guests. Royal Garden Resort boasts many 30 plus year return guests. Basically, once you vacation here you won't want to go anywhere else. That's why we bought here. Great View, Great Condo and Great Pools!
