About Linda

Ted and I have take great pride in offering clean, spacious and affordable vacation rentals to our guests. Living in Ocean Lakes and the Grand Strand area for decades, we love to share our 'special' spots or our favorite fish monger. There are so many wonderful local restaurants that you can get fresh fish caught that morning, traditional southern foods like fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, chicken bog, etc. Of course our area has a lot of chain restaurants too but we always suggest to try one of local places. Plenty of water sport activities from Little River to Pawleys Island and of course == loaded with golf courses for all levels and budgets. We enjoy partaking in all asects of our community and are blessed to have lived in this area for so long. We hope to make you part of our summer family!

Linda purchased this house in 2007

Why Linda chose South Side 1500

Located within the award winning gated community of Ocean Lakes, this is a resort that has so many activities and amenities for families to do and it is Safe! Our nephews and nieces - and Now - Great nephews and nieces, come to stay with us and can ride their bikes, walk to the arcade, play basketball, etc. with us having a peace of mind with the family environment and 24 hour security. It really is a friendly place to stay. It allows for younger family members to have a little freedom and parents that opportunity to relax a little while enjoying their family time.

What makes this house unique

Spacious well planned home that was built with families in mind. We understand stand how precious time is and how difficult it is to get the whole family together. That is why when we designed our beach houses we planned on the family sitting around the kitchen table while still being able to see the football game or watch the movie that the kids are watching in the living room. Our time with our families is so valuable that we should take advantage of every moment. Come make some memories at our beach house!

We have been going to the beach for mothers day for the past 22 years with my 3 sisters, mother and our families. We always have a wonderful time.

We were able to bring our american bull dog with us this time and it felt like we were at home. Having everyone together was what we needed. There was plenty of room for everyone. We can't wait until next year.

Forest, VA (next to Lynchburg)

Stayed 6 months over the winter

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house from September 8, 2015 till end of March 2016. It was awesome and the best winter I have had in a long time. The 5 bedrooms came in handy since we had plenty of company. We are from Lynchburg, VA and being in MB for the winter was awesome. The house is awesome and we didn't want to leave. It felt like being at home, only better. The neighbors were great and got to meet some really nice people. Ted and Linda are awesome and it was a pleasure to get to know them and enjoy their home. You can't go wrong by staying in any of their 3 homes. Absolutely wonderful...wish I was still there.

Great Time, Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

The property was not too far from beach, roomy, and nice. We were able to snag a second golf cart at check in which was very useful during our stay. Plenty of room to park 3 vehicles and trailer, plus 3 carts. It was half of our families first time in Ocean Lakes and we were all impressed with the great hospitality and kindness of Ted and Linda. The house was cleaned and on the quieter side of the strip which was perfect for us. The shaded area in the evening was nice. We are already planning our next vacation to come back and rent from them again. It was our first time getting a house of our own at Ocean Lakes, a lot less stressful then pulling a trailer from Indiana. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Our family enjoyed staying at this beach house. It was only a short distance to the beach and off the busy roads. We have young children and wanted a safer location and away from some of the louder spots and this location was excellent. Ted and Linda were very nice and were willing to answer our calls if we needed anything. The house has everything you need to enjoy a family vacation. We will be looking to rent this home or another home of Ted and Linda's on our next trip to Myrtle Beach!

Early Summer Fun

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this property and the home owner. The house was in excellent condition; it was a very comfortable stay that actually felt like home.

I don't necessarily think it was the best fit for my group, since it seems like it was in a "regulars" or locals community; they also seems to enjoy it very quiet there. The community also has some regulations that seemed intimidating at first, but in the end it wasn't too overbearing and we were able to enjoy our stay. It's really a trade off there with the regulation, but it does ensure a pleasant stay for the community. We were also in more of the off season, the first week of May, that may have contributed to it seeming much quieter.

The house is in a great location and beach wasn't too far of a walk. It was in a pretty good location relative to other attractions around the beach. It seemed a bit far from "central" Myrtle where you'll find the younger folks and night life, but if you are here for a relaxing stay and the beach, then this is the house for you.

The home owner was very kind and was willing to help us out with anything and gave us quite a few suggestions which were excellent and helped us enjoy our trip to myrtle even more.
