About Tom

Tom, Daphne, Olive and Iris

Winter Beach Trip

December 2016

A last minute trip to the beach to celebrate Christmas. Another great trip!

Carolina Reef is located at 1501 S. Ocean Blvd. in North Myrtle Beach.

Tom purchased this condo in 2004

Why Tom chose Crescent Beach

We bought the condo in 2004 somewhat on a whim. At the time we were really nervous about the purchase wondering if it was the right thing to do. You see, we had just become proud parents of twin girls 6 months earlier. Our lives were already crazy enough - what were we thinking buying a condo 6 hours away and committing to a huge remodeling effort...

Well, 14 years and several thousands of dollars later we couldn't be happier. We've met some great people through VRBO and had many great vacations at the beach ourselves. It’s been great to watch our girls (now 14 years old) grow up and enjoy the beach as well. They started as little babies amused by the feeling of sand running through their fingers – now they are rambunctious girls running up and down the beach surfing on their 'boogie boards'. How quickly time goes by.

So that’s our story. Thanks for taking a look at our condo. Regardless of where you stay, we hope you and your family/friends have as much fun as we have had over the past 11 years during your beach vacation.

What makes this condo unique

The building only has 63 units and there are no other high-rises adjacent to our building. Even at the peak of summer season - you can still walk out to the beach and find a great spot with some room to play and relax.

We love summertime at the beach but spring, fall and winter are also awesome.

Face it, for us, anytime away the beach is great!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'm entering some additional comments we received this year by guests that gave us feedback directly. Thanks to all our guests from 2005. It was a pleasure having you stay at our condominium.


Hello Tom,

We really enjoyed our stay at your condo. It is very nice and we will definatley be back to visit. We live in Charleston, SC so it would be a good get away! Next time we will have to schedule it when we aren't in town for business. Thank you for checking back with us.

The condo was nice. We were right on the beach and had perfect views of the breach.

  • 4 of 5

I was very disappointed in the reality company. When we arrived and checked in, there was no record of the payment being paid in full. I had to give them a copy of the email confirming this. When we got to the condo, we went to the restrooms and noticed no toilet paper in the bathrooms. We did have to go to the grocery store where we did get some paper products. We also didn't have any dishwasher detergent. When I called the reality company, I was told they didn't provide those things. It would have been nice to know this ahead of time in an email just so we could have brought it with us. I was told " that what we do down here." I have rented other areas and every place I have visited provided the paper products as well as dish washer detergent. I enjoyed the condo but was surprised the reality company and no information provided to us in advance. Otherwise, it was a great stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Gerri, Thank you for brining this to our attention. We are in the process of transitioning from our old management company (Carolina Reef Rentals) to our new one (White Realty) due to Debbie's retirement and obviously there are still a few kinks to work out. I will review this feedback with White Realty this week and make sure we are all on the same page going forward. That said, still glad to hear you had a good week and enjoyed the condo. Thank you again and all the best! - Tom

Family vacation

My husband, daughter, grandson and I stayed at this condo. It was exactly as pictured in the photos. We enjoyed the view of the beach. It was clean and everything was in good condition. We would like to return and stay here again. There were no surprises. The owner was very prompt in responding to my questions.

Great Holiday Week

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Carolina Reef over Thanksgiving. The condo had everything we needed and the arrival / check-in process was straight forward. We liked the fact that Tom works with an on-site property management company. Although there were no issues or needs it was good to know that they were there if we needed them.

The location is good with easy access to all the main attractions. We enjoyed the Christmas show at the Carolina Opry as well as eating out at many of the restaurants in the area. We especially enjoyed our dinner at the Flying Fish at Barefoot Landing.

The beach was quiet and it was fun to just sit out on the balcony with our coffee listening to the waves and watching the occasional group of dolphins swim by. It was a fun and relaxing trip and we'll certainly look to book this unit again when we travel to North Myrtle Beach.
