About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths; sleeps 12; Pool & sun deck; 4 balconies; grill & extras

This 5-bedroom house was built in 2010 and offers all the modern comforts you need to enjoy a relaxing week with your family and friends in Myrtle Beach! Located a half-a-block from the 15th Avenue public access, you have a straight shot to the surf and sand. Surfside Beach is a wonderful family beach. Most accommodations in Surfside are beach homes (no high-rise hotels) so the beach is never overly crowded. If you tire of the surf and sand, a short minute walk has you back at Casa Paraty.

There is an enclosed under-house shower with hot water and a foot shower. The backyard has a private 12' X 25' pool and a 20' X 24' sun deck, both surrounded by a six-foot privacy fence - your private oasis for sunbathing and swimming. The house also has four porches - two on the front and two on the back. The lower porch on the back has stairs leading to the pool. The house is furnished with 1 king and 5 queen beds. There is a Graco portable crib available if needed.

Linens and towels are INCLUDED in the rental price, so you will not be nickeled-and-dimed at Casa Paraty. Each of the bedrooms has its own private bathroom - and two of those bathrooms have garden tubs. There is a half-bath on the main floor.

Fully-equipped kitchen with Whirlpool appliances, blender, toaster, coffee maker. Refrigerator is brand new and was purchased just prior to the 2016 summer rental season.

Under-house parking for four cars.

About Russell Long

Beach loving Brazilian married to an American who loves to travel. We have three kids and spent our summers in Surfside Beach when we resided abroad. We have loved every minute of the time we spent at Casa Paraty, enjoying the family-friendly beach and all the other amenities that the Grand Strand offers.

One of our favorite coastal cities is Paraty, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Thus we have named our beach house 'Casa Paraty' and decorated it with original artworks from Brazil and souvenirs from Paraty. You will also see pictures of historic Paraty and original watercolors of Trindade, RJ (our favorite beach).

Russell Long purchased this house in 2010

Why Russell Long chose Surfside Beach

We bought Casa Paraty to be used by our family during summer (when it is winter in Brazil). Now that we reside in SC, we use the beach house during the spring and fall. We have decided to open our house up for your use during the summer - we know you will enjoy Surfside Beach and Casa Paraty as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

We have decorated Casa Paraty with pictures, souvenirs and artwork from Brazil.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We thoroughly enjoyed your house this past week. You made it so very welcoming. Thank you.

We had a great time. Everything we could possibly need, we had. The pool was great and lots of fun.

Our family of 10 stayed at Casa Paraty from June 25 to July 1 2017. We had such a wonderful time. This house has everything you could want and need for your stay. The owners were so kind and wonderful to work with. I have stayed at many places but this one has been my favorite. The house is equipped with beach towels, chairs, games, grill, pool and so many other things. The owners make sure that they have things for everyone. The house is defiantly child friendly. The beach is a very short walk to the beach and when your on the balcony you can see the ocean. My family age range was 26 to 66 and no one was on top of each other. There was plenty of room for everyone. If we plan to hid back to Surfside I would defiantly want to stay here. Thank you so much for having us.

Great Vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at your home. As always everything was great. Its such a help to have the beach chairs, towels and linens there so we don't have to pack them. The only other thing for us that would be very helpful would be a second refrigerator located downstairs in the storage unit. Thanks again for the use of your lovely home...Hope to see you again in the future.

Owner's Response: Marie, We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Paraty. We look forward to your visit in the summer of 2018. And I will see what the wife says about a 'beer fridge' in the under-house storage area. I like that idea ! ! ! Russell

The best rental we have ever enjoyed

  • 5 of 5

Great sleeping accommodations, well equipped kitchen, lots of kid games, DVDs plus wi. The pool was very nice and just a hop and skip to the ocean. Plus there were lots of toys for the beach and pool. Also umbrellas and canopy for the beach. We also enjoyed the wifi and cable tv.

I would recommend this to anyone as it was clean and well maintained. Someone met us on arrival and politely showed us everything about the property and answered all our questions.

Wonderful Beach Trip !!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed from July 31st - August 7th. The property is in a wonderful location with a short walk to the beach. The property offered everything we could have asked for. We brought a few beach items, which we really didn't need. The property offered everything you would need for a great day at the beach! Super clean and roomy! Great stay 😀👌
