About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2

This is the finest 1 bedroom unit in Water's Edge Resort! Nothing else in Water's Edge or the South Strand can compare. An extreme makeover, with a Tuscan Villa Decor in mind, a few short years ago converted this into our escape away private retreat with every conceivable luxury and amenity you could imagine.

From the minute you walk in to our Villa you will see a spectacular panoramic view of the blue Atlantic Ocean. A 14 foot arch, supported by white Doric columns, frame the spectacular view through the living room. Designer Cindy Crawford queen size sofa and marble top end tables, coffee table and TV table accent the side-by-side power leather reclining entertainment theater seats and the 40 inch Sony flat screen TV with DVD and 5.1 surround sound built into the trey ceiling.

Relax to the cool breeze of the tropical overhead fan while you look out over the blue Atlantic Ocean. An oversize 14 foot by 8 foot balcony with privacy walls gives you a front row seat to watch the dolphins, boats, surfers, para-sails and you will even see horses in the off-season.

Dine in elegance at the tropical style dining table and chairs, framed by the custom designed tiled tropical planter on one end and a built-in china cabinet and office area on the other. The Custom designed Cherry cabinet kitchen with Canyon Sunset Granite is fully stocked with all your culinary needs, high-end stainless steel appliances, built-in wine cooler, compactor, dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, convection oven, microwave and glass top range.

The beautifully furnished Master Bedroom has custom built-in Cherry cabinets including a well stocked library for your enjoyment in the lighted glass front bookcase. Mirrored closet doors, and luxurious cashmere sculptured carpet, adjoins a super-luxury bath with Jacuzzi tub, Rain Forest Shower head and built-in body jets in the wall. Floor to ceiling Italian marble and ceramic tile are accented by a granite topped Bombay chest vanity. Full second bath with Rain Forest Shower Head and floor to ceiling Italian marble and ceramic tile and granite topped vanity.

The beach is a short elevator ride down and 100 feet to the sand. It is a beach lovers dream. A little quieter and less crowded than Myrtle Beach, you will fall in love with Garden City Beach. This unit was remodeled as our private second home. Our escape away. We just began renting it in 2013 to people looking for something really special. Be among the first to brag about staying at Villa 305 Waters Edge Resort. If you stay here once, you will be spoiled for life, and will want to come back again and again. Welcome to our Home Away from Home! We look forward to hearing about your visit with us.

About Janet

Welcome, we are Janet and Parker, homeowners of Villa 305 Water's Edge Resort. We bought this in 2006 as a private second home. We did an extreme makeover that same year, to make this home a show place. Family and business obligations prevent us from using it as much as we would like, so we have decided to share our home with those who are seeking something special in a vacation resort. We know you will enjoy it and we also know that you will want to return often.

Janet purchased this condo in 2006

Why Janet chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

Garden City Beach is just south of Myrtle Beach, but a little quieter, less crowded and more relaxing than Myrtle Beach. Water's Edge Resort is a concrete and steel high rise that withstood hurricane Hugo, when many of its neighbors did not. The third floor and unit 305 are just above the tops of the Palmetto trees to create a tropical feeling without distractions. The view from the living room and the deck are simply the best on the East Coast. We think you will agree.

What makes this condo unique

Super-luxury unit at a very competitive price. Why stay somewhere else when you can have the best unit in the building and the best on the South Strand?

Janet was a great host, when we needed communication she was quick to respond. The villa is beautiful and everything is exactly as as described, view is perfect and the amenities are amazing compared to the rest of the villas. Thank you for a great time in South Carolina!

Everything was great in this condo and I would definitely stay again. The only minor comment I have is the bed could be upgraded other than that everything was awesome

This is a lovely villa ... clean, beautifully furnished with great attention to detail, fantastic view, perfect balcony from which to enjoy it all (totally furnished as well), comfy bed, full complement of technology. And, to top it off, the owners have tried to think of everything one could possibly need - it was ALL there!!. In short, it all made for a very happy and peaceful stay.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

First off let me say I do not give 5's easily. My husband and I have stayed in many VRBO units and this one is one of the best! I would most definitely stay here again. The owners are great to work with and answer emails and phone calls in a timely manner.

This unit has everything you could need and more. It is perfect for 2 people. It was clean when we arrived and the owners had even personalized our stay with personal hygiene items. It is very nicely furnished with all of the comforts of home.The appliances are top quality and they leave no question as to how to operate them as there are notes indicating the use of them. I loved the wine refrigerator as I am a wine enthusiast. The kitchen is very well stocked and there is plenty of storage in the bedroom. This unit has a bath and a half which is a must for 2 people to get ready at the same time. The balcony is very nice and secondary to the building being so close to the ocean it is almost as though you are in the center of it. I would only suggest new cushions and possibly a glass top on the table to help with a more even eating and drinking surface. Great spot to view the nightly fireworks.

There are books and magazines as well as a full cable selection.

Cell service is a little iffy but better from the kitchen back. There is a phone in the unit. The internet works fine.

The resort was very nice with new decking and flowers. During high tide the water comes all the way up to the decking. A small gift shop is on site with some kitchen staples. There is a bar area though we did not visit this and will soon have a restaurant. Security is on site and they do check for proper access.

You can easily walk to the Garden City Pier. The Conch Cafe is about half of a mile walk on the beach and has great burgers and seafood. It is very close to Murrell's inlet which is a must visit for entertainment and food. Dead Dog Saloon and Wahoo's Fish House are our favorites.

Parking can be a little tight but if you go up to the 3rd or 4th level you will find plenty of parking. You can also enter the building from a back stairwell and go up 1 flight of stairs. This was very convenient in avoiding elevator wait times.

Parker and Janet have taken the time to decorate their home as though they live there full time and I just want to say we appreciate them sharing it with us.

You will not regret booking your stay in this unit.

Car: recommended

Garden City Beach and Water's Edge Resort are located about 20 minutes south of Myrtle Beach in an area that is a little quieter, more family oriented and less crowded. But, the best shopping, dining and attractions have moved toward this end of the beach, so you are never very far from what you want to see and do. Detailed driving directions provided the week before you check in.
