About Mary VerMeulen

Hi, my name is Mary. I am a mom of three grown children, grandmother to one granddaughter, and an animal rescue volunteer. I am also a licensed Real Estate Broker. I live inland on a small farm with 8 rescued pot bellied pigs, 2 rescued dogs, 4 cats, chickens, guineas, and a horse. I enjoy the farm, and also enjoy escaping to the beach from time to time. I am pleased to share my beach home with you and am looking forward to making your stay a wonderful experience. It is my sincere wish that you will enjoy your visit in my home and will want to return again and again.

Mary VerMeulen purchased this condo in 2004

Why Mary VerMeulen chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

When I walked in the front door I was captivated. It is a sanctuary with such calming beauty that sometimes I don't even need to leave the condo all day. When considering buying, I found the third floor, in addition to having the best views, to be much more private and quiet (no one above you). Also, only third floor condos have cathedral ceilings which add to the airy, spacious feeling. It's only a few more steps and well worth it. Since it's an easy third floor walk-up, I can leave the drapes open to enjoy the view at all times.

It's lovely to watch the sailboats slip past, the large cabin cruisers motoring by, the Barefoot Princess passes regularly and a large working barge passes from time to time. While visiting just the other day, I saw crew teams practicing on the waterway right in front of the villa....very cool! Not to mention the fun of watching the golfers......and the Barefoot oceanfront Beach Cabana is a great feature, especially with the convenience of the complimentary Shuttle Bus running weekdays in summer and weekends in spring and fall. It's a lovely, upscale resort.

What makes this condo unique

The view of the waterway and the golf course give my condo unusual beauty and privacy that you only find in select third floor units. As well as sailboats slipping by, I never tire of sitting on the balcony for hours watching nature (there is a tree near the balcony with a collection of songbirds), the boats passing, and the golfers and walkers going by. The east facing balcony allows for watching the sunrise over the waterway, warm mornings in winter, and cool, shaded, summer evenings for maximum enjoyment of the balcony. Most times of the year the moon rises within view of the balcony, master bedroom, and great room which adds to the beauty and enjoyment. Additionally, every Monday night in summer, the fireworks from Barefoot Landing are visible, over the treetops, from the balcony. I enjoy the open airy floorplan and cathedral ceilings of this condo which make it seem even larger than it is. Since purchasing, I've upgraded lighting fixtures, some furnishings and decorations, and added ceiling fans to the bedrooms, great room and balcony. I also enjoy the convenience of being able to get to the beach, ,restaurants, bank, drug store, grocery, Barefoot Landing and more without even getting on Highway 17. It is also great that cyclists are welcome on the extra wide sidewalks, so you can bike the whole resort as well as almost the entire way to the beach without being on the roads.

The property was exactly as described. When we arrived it was spotless and ready for our stay.

The overall location is great! Barefoot Resort is close to everything we enjoy doing but far enough away to be quiet and restful. Mary's condo is the perfect place to get away and relax. The pool is easy to walk to with fairly close parking if you prefer to drive. Barefoot Landing has several attractions on the waterway that our family enjoyed, and it is so close that getting there took no time at all. We were able to have a great vacation, and a big part of that was having a comfortable place to stay. Plus, Mary is so easy to communicate with and truly wishes for her guests to enjoy their vacation. We would definitely stay here again!

Literally within minutes of the beach the value is not only outstanding but the condo itself and the deck was worth every penny.
