About Robin Shemancik

My husband and I have owned the property for 13 yrs, and we absolutely love it. My husband and I are both Christians. I am a retired teacher, and my husband works in IT. We know that you will love this place as much as we do. Being able to purchase this unit was a dream come true.

This unit has brought our family close together. I hope that it does the same for you.

Robin Shemancik purchased this condo in 2001

Why Robin Shemancik chose Crescent Beach

The fronts of living room and the master bedroom are all glass. The balcony is huge. We have decorated the unit with love and comfort in mind. It is 1mile from OD. You can walk to dinner or just to the ice cream shop. Large wide beach/Life guard near. The unit also has a large atrium with benches to sit on and just relax.

The outdoor grills help you save money on your vacation. My family likes to cook hamburgers on the grills, and save money for other activities. The unit is 1D but it is over the parking lots, which really makes it a 3D unit. You don't have the noise from the pool; however, if you want to yell down to your kids, you can.

What makes this condo unique

The views from the balcony, living room and master bedroom are spectacular. Rocking chairs in front of the glass front. You can sit in the rocking chairs early in the morning and watch the dolphins and pelicans. Only the D units in Sea Castle are directly ocean front. You can look up and down the beach/Don't be fooled.

We have been going to the beach for our monthly winter vacation for over 13 years, and by far, this condo has simply been the best! As we entered the living area, we were awed by the wonderful view of the ocean through the ceiling to floor windows, graced by 2 rocking chairs. The master bedroom has the same size windows also facing the ocean! The semi circular deck could be entered through the sliding doors from either the living area or bedroom. Opening all of the vertical shades in the morning gives a panoramic view of the ocean and you didn't have to worry if it were 40 degrees or 70 degrees outside. GORGEOUS beginning to every day!

The interior beach decor was beautiful - not your typical beach rental. The owner could not have been more helpful. We were so used to bringing EVERYTHING to the beach for the month, that we were surprised to find so many "supplies" already there, e.g. spices, condiments, paper plates, cleaning products, fabric softener, etc.

Our only disappointment is that it is already rented for our time period next winter (but we are first on the "waiting list" just in case :-) ).

Worryfree vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was the easiest, most relaxing vacation my family has had in a long time. From start to finish, the owner couldn't have been nicer to work with. When I began to search for a place, I contacted her and she got back to me the next day. In the weeks leading up to the vacation, any time I emailed her with a question, she was quick and thorough with the answer. And at the end of our stay, once the cleaning crew determined that we had done no damage to the place, we got our damage deposit check back within the week!

As for the condo itself ... it truly was like a home away from home. With three bedrooms, there were plenty of beds for my daughter and her family as well as my husband and me. Two bathrooms meant no one had to wait long. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pans, utensils - even a dishwasher ... plus washer/dryer. The owner truly has thought of everything, including games, beach toys & chairs, boogie boards and a notebook full of flyers on area attractions.

Then there's the area itself. The beach in front of the condo is not at all crowded, so there's plenty of room for sand castles and sea shell searches. And Highway 17, where you can find everything from the Tanger Outlets to mini-golf, restaurants and nightlife is only a few blocks away. They even have a small amusement park a few blocks away and a free concert on Thursday nights.

The next time my family comes to the beach, we will definitely be contacting the owners of this condo first!

Beautiful Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful place to stay, Loved everything about it. Had a very relaxing vacation. Spending time with my family, The beach was not crowded and the people were very friendly. The Condo was perfect. Everything you could need. I loved the rockers in front of the big window, I seen 4 dolphins swim by one morning. My Mom loved the king bed waking up and looking right at the ocean. The owners are very helpful and kind. We drove to the town of North Myrtle beach about 5 min. away. but most of the time we stay on the beach. If Gods willing I will be back and I would recommend this beautiful ocean view condo to my friends and relative. Thanks Robin for sharing you beautiful Home.

Enjoyable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful relaxing vacation staying in this beautiful condo in North Myrtle Beach. We have been coming here for several years staying other places but none compared to the cleanliness, view, or charm of this well equipped condo. The owner is great to work with and we appreciate all of her helpfulness. Bob enjoyed playing several rounds of golf on different courses and I invited the wives over for lunch and everyone agreed we had found a beautiful "home away from home". As a special treat, we were able to see the rare occasion of snow on the beach! We have high hopes that we will be able to be here again next January.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in this family friendly condo. Everything you could think of needing was available for use. Enjoyed the beach, the pool, and the hot tub. The area was full of things to do, we ate at some great restaurants, and took in The Medieval Nights Dinner Show. The view from the balcony was breathtaking. It was a very relaxing atmosphere, and felt very much like a home away from home. We definitely will be booking our next Myrtle Beach stay in this condo.

Loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many places in North Myrtle Beach, but this is our favorite, by far! The pictures are accurate. We loved the open floor plan and bright colored beach themed rooms! We had everything we needed at this condo. The property owner was so easy to work with and helpful, even after we arrived. The balcony was perfect for the 7 of us to enjoy coffee each morning and we saw so many dolphins--What a bonus! We found beautiful seashells like the ones you buy at the beach shops--right on the beach! The beach in front of this property was not crowded and we were able to spread out and enjoy it even during high tide. We loved being away from the congestion of the beach traffic, but were close to our two favorite restaurants (Duffy Street Seafood Shack and Plantation Pancake House). It's a perfect getaway and we cannot wait to rebook in the Fall!

One of the reasons that we love Sea Castle 1-D, it is close to shopping (outlet and upscale), dining, golf courses, shows, movie theaters, fishing, and renting of bikes. You can walk to dinner or just get an ice cream cone. Large deck area for familes with pool, kiddie pool, lounge chairs and tables, sauna and jacuzzi. Life guard near by. Best beach in North Mrytle beach/very wide. Recommend going to Molly Darcy's to eat on the deck over the ocean. You can wak there in about 5 minutes. Outlet shopping is fabulous.(nautica and clarks) Also Walmart is only 10 minutes away. Best places to eat we have found to be Joe's Bar and Grill, California Dreaming(baked pot. soup), and a new resturarant called Clarks in Little River. Of course my husband like Martins (huge golf shop)
