About the property

True 1-Bedroom; 1.25 Bathrooms; Oceanfront; Totally Updated. 17th Floor!

Welcome to 'The Reach at the Beach'! Located on the 17th floor of Ocean Forest Plaza. Our unit has been completely remodeled. No more looking through balcony bars from cheap plastic chairs. Enjoy our tall high-end Adirondack chairs and side table, while taking in the amazing view of the Atlantic coastline from our over-sized balcony. This is a True 1-bedroom condo with king size bed, additional private vanity and sink, plus full bath. Brand new highest quality Lazy-Boy full size sleeper sofa in den offers additional sleeping for 2. The kitchen is fully equipped with an awesome island and high sturdy bar stools, stainless steel appliances and upscale dishware.

You will not get the 'cookie cutter' feel with our condo. From the original owner photos on the wall, to the hand made furniture, to the unique antique pieces...this is a one-of-a-kind vacation property that makes you feel welcome and comfortable as soon as you walk in.

Ocean Forest Plaza owners and guests can enjoy wonderful amenities including an outdoor swimming pool, a heated indoor pool, relaxing hot tub, sauna and outdoor grill. FREE WiFi. 24-hour security with surveillance cameras. Across the street is a paved fitness trail with multiple exercise stations. An oceanfront playground is just a block away. Buckets Bar and Grill is a great place for a beverage or a meal, located in Forest Dunes and less than a 5-minute walk. This is one of our favorite spots to visit. Other fine restaurants are just a short 10-minute walk.

Ocean Forest Plaza is located ocean front in the exclusive area known as The Golden Mile or Cabana Row of Myrtle Beach. It is away from the crowds but close enough to all attractions making this the perfect location for couples or families.

There is no need to check in at a front desk or to go to an off site office to pick up keys. Once you arrive you can go directly to our condo. This is our second home and we take great pride in offering a beautiful, CLEAN, SMOKE FREE vacation condo to families, friends and guests.

Unfortunately, motorcycles are not allowed on property. No pets are allowed, except those belonging to the deeded home owner and displaying the OFP tag.

About The Owner

As children and teens my husband and I traveled from North Carolina to the Myrtle Beach area for family vacations. The dream of owning a place at the beach became a reality when we bought our condo at Ocean Forest Plaza.

Why The Owner chose Myrtle Beach

We bought this property knowing we were going to perform a complete remodel, to make this into our second home. We think we succeeded into making 'The Reach' some place truly special. It doesn't feel like a hotel. It feels like a cozy home, a peaceful, inviting spot where the everyday stresses of life just seem to disappear.

We love the music of Dan Fogelberg and named our condo after one of his songs, as well as each of my original photographs on the wall. We added unique touches such as some of my very own handcrafted furniture and antique pieces to make our place extra special.

We also like the the fact that many owners in our building live here year round. We enjoy seeing friends and familiar faces when we are here and knowing that there is pride in ownership, as this isn't just a building or a condo, but their home.

What makes this condo unique

We love that our condo is located in a quiet section of Myrtle Beach. The beach is never too crowded, yet we are no more than a 5-minute drive to all the restaurants and shops. The view from the kitchen, den and balcony is simply amazing. We never get tired of listening to and watching the waves. My husband is an avid cyclist and enjoys bringing his bike. He has joined up with the local cycling community for group rides. Like most people, we enjoy taking long walks at the beach. Not only do we like walking on the beach, but the location of our condo is great for walking through the neighborhoods of beautiful homes, as well as to a couple of nearby restaurants. The fitness trail across the street also offers the opportunity for some additional exercise and scenic walks. We always look forward to our trips here and are glad we are able to share our vacation home with family, friends, and guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We really enjoyed our week celebrating our first anniversary here. We love the balcony and the great views. Each time we come you have added something new. Love the fireplace! The new king bed is great, too! Thanks again!

Outstanding condo

  • 5 of 5

Our new favorite place to stay in Myrtle Beach. This very clean condo is a perfect size for a couple. It is well stocked with all the comforts of home. We had to leave early due to a death in the family, but the owner is allowing us to return at a later date to finish our stay.

Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I enjoyed a week-long stay at Jill & Tim's beautiful condo and everything about this trip exceeded our expectations. Jill was very easy to work with and provided us with everything necessary for a relaxing get-away. We appreciated their preferred restaurant list which included distance and travel time via car or walking. The location was perfect as we prefer being away from the crowds. The beach was fabulous!!! Our damage deposit refund was in the mail before our plane landed! I will not hesitate to recommend this condo and I sincerely hope we will be fortunate enough to return again soon.

Everything we hoped and more.

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous relaxing stay in paradise! We have never rented a place that felt so much like home plus provided so many thoughtful extras. You could feel the TLC Tim and Jill put into the renovations with the top of the line appliances, dishware and handcrafted furnishings.Between the breathtaking sunrises, watching dolphins from the high balcony chairs and snuggling by fireplace after dark we never wanted to leave. When we did venture out the beautiful uncrowded beach was perfect for walking and shell hunting. Also lots of fabulous restaurants close by to choose from. The unit, pool and building is exceptionally clean and quite. We can't imagine staying anywhere else now that we've been so spoiled.

Spectacular is an understatement!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Early every year my work as a 911 dispatcher and my life as a single mom seem to reach the "I need a break" point. When my girls were younger I started taking a few days and going somewhere by myself (now known as my "Mom Runs Away" trip :-). The last few years I've gone to Myrtle Beach and always stayed somewhere different --- this is by FAR the most wonderful place I have stayed!!!

The view that greeted me when I walked in was unbelievable! It was high tide and all I could see was the ocean --- it reminded me of being on a cruise ship. The condo was SUPER clean. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need -- and I did cook in some. I enjoyed the fireplace at night as it was chilly and rainy the first couple of days I was there -- a great addition! I also appreciated very much the cable package with extra channels they have --- other than sports I'm not a big TV watcher and it was nice to have the music channels for background noise when I was reading or cross stitching.

The condo is near the elevator but not so close you can hear it. The bedroom window that is on the exterior hall side is covered so completely I never saw or heard anyone or anything. I never felt unsafe --- not in the condo or even in the parking deck when I was coming in late. The parking deck is, as mentioned, very tight --- but not difficult if you take it slow and pay attention. By the time I left I had it figured out as far as just when to turn so I didn't have to back up and try again :-)

The view from the balcony is indescribable. I got up a couple of days specifically to watch the sunrise --- and it was well worth it --- gorgeous.

Food recommendation: Sea Captain's House --- it's been there forever, is on the waterfront, and the food is delicious!

And I can't forget to mention Jill! She was prompt and courteous and very easy to work with. As far as her photos hanging in the condo --- you'd have to see them to believe it --- exquisite!!

If you're wanting an amazing vacation or respite from the real world, this is your place. I love the story on the FB page about how "The Reach" got it's name from a Dan Fogelberg song and the song is definitely appropriate --- and I saw more: on clear nights it's as if you could reach out and touch the stars -- the relaxing sounds of the ocean reach out to you to calm and rejuvenate you -- and it's easy to reach down inside yourself and find what you need to recharge.

Go! Relax! Enjoy!

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this place. The list goes on and on...location, view, decor, cleanliness, and the best part is how involved Jill & Tim are. They will make your special day here the best. They give this the personal touch. I have been staying in the Myrtle Beach area for over 30 years and this is the only place I will stay now. This is the second time here at this unit and the improvements continue to happen (good sign that the owners care). I also like the fact that this is a very quiet area. Thanks to Jill & Tim for sharing your home away from home. I hope that it will be available for us again this year!
