Why Van & Debra Morris chose Southern Coast

As children we both traveled to Myrtle Beach with our families for vacations, but began visiting other beaches as we grew older and really grew to love Carolina Beach with its family atmosphere and very friendly people, along with all there is to do within a short walk. The extra wide beach in this area of Carolina Beach is an added plus that the children really enjoy. The street (Carolina Beach Avenue South) is a one way street with very little traffic which offers a level of security we like, especially since we have children. The building also has a security coded entry stairwell and there is plenty of assigned parking which is very important at the beach in the summer months. The surroundings at Carolina Beach make for a level of relaxation that is not easily achieved in many places. We have been very happy with our decision to choose Carolina Beach over other vacation destinations and believe our vacationers will feel the same way.

Super Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed for a week and the accommodations were fantastic. We mainly used the facilities as a hub for week, spending most of our time at the beach. We were looking for something a little more quite than the Myrtle Beach scene and were not disappointed. We could go down to the beach (easy access) and there was plenty of room to spread out. The pictures don't do justice to how much room there is on the beach. Everything in the condo was as advertised. We cooked most of our meals at the condo, but did spent evenings at the Carolina Beach boardwalk, especially enjoying the various ice cream vendors. Only "negative" would be that there was construction taking place on a condo across the street. However, we were gone most of the day so we only had to put up with the noise for about an hour in the morning. Even that wasn't bad. Actually, the neighbors in the condo above us were often more noisy than the construction. Although, even that was limited to early morning. Working with Van and Debby was great. We e-mailed a couple of times before arrival and they were always prompt with a reply - even on silly little items. Would definitely include this property as one to return to.

A Bit Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

We're sharing this information as constructive comments. This condo is in an excellent location and was the perfect size for our family. We especially appreciated having access to beach chairs, an outside shower and a balcony on which to hang our beach towels for drying.

However, upon arrival we found the condo was NOT clean nor supplied! We had read someone's review about the lack of toilet paper and laughed, but both bathrooms had rolls with only a few sheets remaining. There were 2 spare rolls; both of which we used and had to buy more. I had to add water to the bathroom soap dispenser in order to have enough soap to wash our hands. There were crumbs on the carpet in the living room and on the kitchen counter. The coffee table's glass top was marked with glass rims and smudges. I found a dead fly smashed on a shelf in the refrigerator and no liners in any of the trash cans. The toilets, sinks and mirrors showed signs of neglectful wiping. My daughter complained that the sheets on her bed didn't fit properly and came off during each night. The pillows in all of the bedrooms were very flat. I would consider using a different management company if this was our condo.

Owner's Response: When we first saw this review it was a little upsetting because we take pride in keeping a nice place for our guests, but believe that it was good that Jeff took the time to let us know so we can deal with the issue. A review in the past had a few of the same problems and we let the cleaning crew know to be more thorough, fill the soap dispensers, and make sure there is plenty of toilet paper. It is obvious from Jeff's review that our cleaning crew is not consistent and did not follow our previous instructions. We believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt and did so with the cleaning personnel the first time, but have decided to look for another company to maintain our condo due to this happening a second time. Thank you for helping us make our condo a nicer place to spend a vacation. Van & Debby

comfortable condo in great location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of two adults and three teenagers spent a very pleasant long weekend in the condo. It's an easy walk to the beach, with plenty of restaurants and such nearby. The place itself was immaculate and certainly big enough for our group. Van and Debby were very easy to work with. The only real shortcoming for us was that there was not a table large enough so that we could all eat together, and the space is not really shaped so as to accommodate one. We did enjoy the ocean-facing deck, however, as well as the spirited signs and music (only during the day, don't worry) from the house next door.

Owner's Response: Hello Lisa. We are so thankful that you and your family were able to spend time together at Carolina Beach and we appreciate your compliments regarding our condo. It's very interesting that you mentioned the kitchen table, as we, a family of five also, had the same discussion when we purchased the condo. In the complex there are two bedroom units with a large dining room and three bedroom units like ours without the dining room. We decided after discussing this we would rather have three bedrooms instead of the dining room since we use the condo as a vacation getaway. With the kitchen table, 3 bar stools, coffee table, and the deck coffee table there is dinner seating for 11 if needed. If anyone can come up with a furniture arrangement where we can have a larger kitchen table we would love to hear any ideas. We hope your family will visit us again in the future.

Great location but packed in other areas

  • 3 of 5

The location of this property was spectacular. The boardwalk and beach was a two minute walk. Lots of restaurants and bars were also within walking distance. Parking and access to the unit was very easy. The condo was very spacious and with six people staying there, we never felt like we were cramped. We did find one cockroach in the hallway when we arrived. However, we didn't see any others the rest of the time we were there. The common hallway was pretty dirty with a few dead roaches, but I can't blame the owners of this place as I am not sure the agreement they have with the other owners for cleaning. In regards to other owners in the building, be advised the walls are very thin (this is not to lower this rental's rating, just advise future renters). When we arrived, I noticed the dishawasher was flashing and it appeared the dishwasher didn't completed the cleaning cycle. I tried to run it again, but didn't find any dishwasher soap. We ate out for all our meals, so we washed the the glasses we used before using them and left the rest of the dishes in the dishwasher to be cleaned after our stay. We also noticed there was no extra toilet paper, paper towels, or hand soap in the entire unit. Thus, we had to go out and buy these items the first night. We felt this was weird as all other rentals we've had included these items and there was no indication that we needed to bring these. Lastly, there was one twin bed that squeaked and there were no curtains on the windows. So with all white shades, the morning light came pretty quick. For the price it is hard to get a better location. However, also for the price we would have expected soap, paper towels, and toilet paper to have been supplied.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing our property and we are happy that you appreciated the location as much as we do. So that you know, all units in the building are sprayed on a regular interval by a pest control company hired by the HOA and we rarely see any bugs. We have never seen any bugs in the common area hallway, but we will keep an eye out for this in the future. The cleaning crew provides toilet tissue in each bathroom and they know this is a requirement. We will address this with them and also look into finding a soap that is hypoallergenic. Our daughter is allergic to some soaps, so we want to make sure this is not a problem with our guests. Thanks again for pointing out areas we can improve on.
