“place at myrtle beach” . . . .

Panoramic seascape views will surround you- This bright and airy 3rd floor, 2 bedroom/2 full bathroom unit is one of the few in APATB that directly overlooks the ocean. You can see for miles up and down the coast line and the quiet, top story location with private balcony is just steps from the sandy beach and gated oceanfront pools.

The building is tucked away near the end of the highly desirable Shore Drive, between the bustle of Myrtle Beach and charm of North Myrtle Beach. It is quieter and more relaxing than other areas on the Grand Strand and just perfect for family fun. Despite the privacy of this location, all Myrtle Beach entertainment and activities are nearby including Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, Restaurant Row, Tanger Factory Outlets, and more than 100 golf courses.

The limited traffic flow and secluded location of Shore Drive is a welcome contrast to the busy traffic of Highway 17. Ice cream and gift shops are within walking distance and grocery stores and restaurants are only a couple blocks away. Also, very close is Ocean Annie's, but from the balcony, all you can hear and see is the ocean. Instead of more buildings across the street, there is a salt water marsh (Swash), which is also adjacent to the Dunes Golf Course, and is a fantastic place to fish or crab. Or for even better fishing, take a short walk to the Apache Pier, the longest pier on the East Coast.

The condo comfortably sleeps six people with all the amenities of home. The master bedroom overlooks the ocean and has a queen size bed, plenty of storage, 32” TV, remodeled bathroom with shower, and a door onto the private oceanfront balcony. The 2nd bedroom is comfortable with two twin beds. A queen size sleeper sofa is in the living room. The hall bathroom has a full-size tub with shower wand.

The living room and kitchen feature fabulous views of the beach and ocean from large windows and sliding glass door. When not admiring the scenery, you can enjoy the 39” TV with sound bar and DVD/VCR player which can be viewed from ample seating, including 2 recliners. The eat-in kitchen is fully equipped with stove, microwave, refrigerator, ice maker, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, blender, crock-pot, cooking utensils, table for four and a bar for six. There is also extra seating and a pub table on the balcony.

A walk-in utility closet at the condo’s entrance makes the storage of beach equipment convenient. There is a small cooler and during the summer, beach chairs/umbrellas are available for rent from the life guards. Linens (sheets/towels) can be supplied for an additional fee. An iron, small ironing board, and hair dryer are provided, and coin operated washers/dryers are located on the first floor of the building. The condo has 2 AC/heating units, 4 fans and free Wi-Fi.

The building is not a hotel-like high-rise with lobbies, slow elevators, and parking garages. The wooden structure is only three stories with open air hallways, and the guarded beachfront parking is very convenient. The two gated pools are seldom crowded and there are also outdoor showers, BBQ grilling and picnic areas. The vacation atmosphere is laid back with no dress code. There are no door keys to keep up with or return. You simply enter a passcode to open the front door.

Occupancy is limited to no more than six adults, day or night. Recommended for families- one of the adults must be at least 26 years old, and well-behaved children are welcome. This is a no smoking, no pet, no motorcycle unit, and it is not wheelchair accessible. This vacation rental is not handled by a property management company- it is kept meticulously clean and well maintained throughout the year!

Hooray! You finally found your “place at myrtle beach" . . . but first send a detailed message directly to Sandy 😊

Nice unit directly on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent time at this unit in March/April 2018. It is a nicely appointed unit overlooking the beach. The building has laundry facilities and there was a Kroger grocery store about 2 miles away. Conveniently located between Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach. The owner was easy to get in touch with and very responsive to any time we reached out. Would definitely stay again!

Fantastic again for our 2nd year!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 3-I for the second year in a row. This is quickly becoming our home-away-from-home that we want to return to every year. Once again, everything was clean & well organized. The size is perfect for us and the condo is so comfortable for a week long stay. Sandy is always available and is so easy to talk with. A Place At The Beach is helping us make great memories! Thanks!

Great Place with an even great view

Couldn't get any closer to the beach if we wanted too. Great view from living room, mater bedroom and balcony. Perfect for our family of 5. Sandy was available if we needed anything. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Quiet stay, but close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Sandy was very helpful and easy to contact if we had questions or concerns! The beach views were amazing and it was at the end of Shore Drive so not a ton of traffic. Top floor unit is the way to go! We had my 14 month old nephew with us and he really enjoyed his first beach trip. He couldn't stop pointing and saying oooo!

Absolutely Perfect and More!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing. We literally searched, found, and booked this condo 3 days before leaving. It was meant for us to be there! This was our first visit to Myrtle Beach. Our 20 month old daughter had her first beach experience and LOVED it. The condo size was perfect for us, comfortable, SO clean, and welcoming. The layout was so ideal for us. The 3rd floor views were beautiful. We ate every meal outside and saw up and down the beach in both directions. We enjoyed staying in a smaller condo and being so close to the beach without having to deal with elevators or crowded high-rise condos. Everyone we met was friendly and respectful, no loud groups. The owner, Sandy, is friendly, accommodating, and we would love to meet her in person! What more can we say - this was a wonderful vacation for us. We would highly recommend this condo for you, just don't take "our" week next summer! :)
