About Louise

Our family lives in Maine and we love to get away to Myrtle Beach whenever time allows. Our kids love all the 'To Do's' and excitement of what Myrtle Beach offers, but with such a busy life, I just want to relax and unwind, eat well, sleep well and enjoy that glorious beach. My husband is a keen sportsman, so the endless golfing opportunities are a great attraction for him. This resort offers everything - an absolutely luxurious and serene getaway for me, a golfing extravaganza with fabulous meals onsite for my husband, and water parks, amusements, outlet shopping, jet skiing, snorkeling etc etc for the kids. Having this place as our vacation condo has transformed our lives! We just love it!

Louise purchased this condo in 2014

Why Louise chose Myrtle Beach

Island Vista is set in the most upmarket neighborhood of Myrtle Beach, surrounded by multi-million dollar houses. This means that the beach is MUCH quieter - no bustling crowds, cigarette butts, beer bottles etc etc just a glorious beach and every luxury amenity to hand. This does not mean that we had to compromise on the attractions, we are just far enough away to avoid too many crowds, but close enough for the children to make the most of enjoying them. It is a perfect location, a really elegant building full of southern charm, and a seriously lovely condo.

What makes this condo unique

The beach without the noisy, smokey crowds, fabulous amenities, great pool complex and fitness facilities, beachfront cabana for spa services, we don't even have to go anywhere to enjoy reasonably priced gourmet meals and drinks. The views from the living room and balcony are simply sublime. We just love it.

Great stay!

Condo was clean and well equipped. Hallways smelled a bit. Older lady (didn’t catch her name) at front desk was not all that friendly (maybe having a bad day). Would book again.

Clean, good communication with Host

  • 5 of 5

Nice 1 BDRM, oceanfront. None of the other reviews mentioned WiFi, and I don't think it was in the description but it is included. Stayed for a golf vacation so only slept and made breakfast, did not use any other facilities. Previous reviewer said knives need to be sharpened, and I agree. Had 1 large non stick pan for eggs, could use a second smaller one. All in all I would definitely recommend and return. Thank you Louise for all your communication, as I know you were out of the country at the time.

Highly recommend!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We went here for our honeymoon. The atmosphere of the property was very serene. The location was great! The neighborhood was peaceful and the beach was not overpopulated. We were able to thoroughly enjoy each other! The condo was well equipped with everything we needed to make meals for ourselves on the evenings we wanted to stay in and enjoy each other's company. It was also spacious enough so we didn't feel crowded. We really enjoyed early morning and late nights on the beach and balcony! Would recommend this property to anyone!!! Louise was very prompt at returning calls and questions before we booked. It was easy to access the apartment and we didn't have the hassle of dealing with hotel staff.

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay, right on the water. The hotel/resort had a great pool, chairs and umbrella were put out each day. The knives in the kitchen need upgrading or sharpening. Otherwise great trip and would love to come back.

Island Vista (the 'Island') is the premier Myrtle Beach luxury resort, overlooking one of the most preferred and quieter beaches on the Grand Strand. The resort is nestled in an upmarket, residential neighborhood (nicknamed 'Millionaires Row') so the location ensures a quieter and more refined and relaxing stay far enough away from the noise and hustle and bustle, but close enough to easily reach for a night out (about a 2 mile walk along the beach or a 5 minute car drive). The Island is a 149 condo-suite luxury resort which opened in 2006. Suites range from One bedroom to 4 bedroom and all are specified to the highest quality. The Island has a full service, award winning restaurant and bar on-site called 'The Cypress Room', serving breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a full room service menu. The Cypress Room also has a brick-oven pizzeria open all day and a Tiki bar and grill open seasonally. The full service spa offers beachfront cabana massage for that perfect relaxation. The wonderful adventure pools and lazy river add the dimension of water fun for kids of all ages. For those looking for a perfect getaway with something for everyone in the family, for surroundings of quiet elegance and luxury, Island Vista is the perfect choice.
