About the property


Always fresh, clean, and updated!

Book your vacation and stay in this amazing, ocean front, 3 bedroom unit now! For the 2018 season we have some exciting updates! The best is the new 65" Samsung Smart TV in the living room. Of course, it still features the TiVo DVR system and Netflix...we just thought it needed to be larger! Additionally, we have refreshed the foyer and main hall to a more neutral, sophisticated color pallet. We've added some art and modern seating for a more cohesive look that we're sure you'll love. Finally, we have installed new lighting in the 2 guest bathrooms to match that in the master. No more florescent lights above the vanities!

Reserve now with the hassle-free "Pay Now" feature. You will be able to book with any bank account or credit card. This feature is safe, fast, and FREE for you. We no longer have to wait for a check to arrive to have your vacation reserved. If you have questions prior to booking, click the "contact owner" box on the right.

This fantastic condo has the distinction of being featured on the popular HGTV program, “House Hunters”! The show was taped in summer/fall 2013 and aired in spring 2014. During that time we renovated this property from top to bottom! HGTV loved what we did so much that they came back! They filmed the follow-up, “House Hunters: Where Are They Now?” in April 2014. It highlights all of the “before” and “after” work we’ve done on the place! Both shows aired repeatedly on HGTV.

Each year we continue to update and modernize our condo. Your family and friends can enjoy all new flooring, appliances, furniture, paint and décor. It is always fresh, clean, comfortable and stylish.

Some of the many upgrades to this ocean front unit are:

• Luxury Hotel Collection bedding (down and down alternative pillows, 400TC 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, comforters and coverlets) in every guest suite.

• Fresh and modern décor offering family comfort combined with chic elegance.

• Free super high-speed Wi-Fi (this is not your average hotel Wi-Fi).

• Free Netflix in the living area and all guest suites.

• 65” Samsung Smart TV in the living area. Each guest suite is also equipped with a Samsung Smart TV.

• TiVo DVD player in the living area.

• 3 balconies and balcony access from every guest suite.

• Beach Umbrella and 2 Chairs rented for summer (Memorial Day-Labor Day).

Your family will be right at home in this extremely spacious unit that boasts over 2,400+sq ft. of living space with the look and feel of a luxury resort. Upon your arrival, it will be fully stocked with all the conveniences of home and a lot of things that make it better than home. That's what vacation is all about! The VRBO pictures have been (and will continue to be) updated whenever new decor is added. The layout of this incredible unit won't's perfect just like it is.

About Ann Trulley

My husband Rick and I purchased in The Brighton Tower in summer 2013 and moved into the unit in October 2013. We completed the renovations while making it our primary residence. Rick is a pilot and I am a retired flight attendant. We have enjoyed the benefits of being in the airline industry for over 20 years which include extensive world travel and staying in every type of accommodations imaginable. We like to think we are uniquely qualified to ensure your vacation in our beach front condominium is top notch. While we love living in Myrtle Beach for the majority of the year, we are delighted to be able to share our place during the high season. We hope the memories you make during your vacation last a lifetime.

Comfortable beds and linens. Location is very convenient to stores, shopping and restaurants. Beach chairs provided with umbrella is most welcomed. The owners are very kind and caring folks. Worthy of a return visit for sure.

Best condo we have ever rented in Myrtle Beach area

  • 5 of 5

1209 Brighton is everything you could want and more. It was immacutely clean, beautifully decorated and extremely spacious. All of the appliances are too notch as well as the items and equipment in kitchen. I love to cook and every gadget imaginable is there for your use. Ann always responded quickly to any questions we had and the views were breathtaking from any window or balcony in the unit. The nice extra touch too was the pre arranged use of 2 beach chairs and umbrella set up for you everyday during your stay. We are not big tv watchers but when we wanted to watch you had access in not only the great room but each bedroom to both cable and Netflix. Thank you Ann and Rick for a wonderful family vacation.

A Slice of Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ann and Rick for sharing your beautiful ocean front condo with our family! The views were amazing and the condo was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We really appreciated the beach chairs, the welcome bag, and the extremely comfortable beds/linens. The large capacity washer and dryer were a welcomed bonus. The condo was very quiet and conveniently located to many activities and restaurants. Ann and Rick have been great to work with! They are very attentive and quick to respond to any questions. We can't wait to go back next year! Thank you!

Amazing! Clean! Awesome Customer Service!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this condo at the last minute for my elderly parents, who were accompanied by my brothers and their wives! It's been almost 1 year since their stay (9/23/16 - 9/26/16), and all six of them are still raving about their beautiful accommodations. We generally take an annual trip to Myrtle Beach, and this property was by far, the nicest condo we've ever booked,. and was definitely worth the money!! In addition, the owner was VERY responsive to any questions we had, and followed through on any promises made - THANK YOU! If you want to stay in a clean, newly renovated, top notch condo - THIS IS IT!
