About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths With a Stunning Lakefront View

Be among the first to stay in this tastefully renovated, lakefront home which is just a short golf cart ride from the ocean. Stunning views and a newly constructed second level covered porch offer ample comfort and relaxation when you're not beach side.

Oceanside Village is a quiet, gated community south of Myrtle Beach and close to great seafood in Murrell’s Inlet as well as all the other activities the Grand Strand has to offer. All of the attractions, restaurants, and shopping in Myrtle Beach are not too far away with a short drive north. Our community offers 24-hour security, and includes lakes & canals, a playground, basketball & tennis courts, pools (heated indoor and two outdoor), outdoor jacuzzi, kiddie pool with a mini water park and a fitness center with access available for $25/week. Other entertainment (golf, arcades, pier fishing and a family water park) are within close proximity too.

On the outside of our home, we've added vinyl siding and shutters and a completely new deck (with covered and sun drenched sections), both of which serve to enhance the tranquility of this beautiful lakefront home. There are also new windows and doors to finish the beachy look. Inside, we've replaced the floors with laminate hardwood and tile (kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms). Every wall has been freshly painted with tranquil colors, evoking a relaxed coastal feel. All the décor is new as well.

Master Suite: *King* Size Bed, Satellite TV, Ceiling Fan, Walk in Closet. Adjoining bathroom is fully updated with a regular size bathtub/shower combination.

Second Bedroom: Full over Full Bunk Beds, Satellite TV, Walk in Closet. The bathroom is bright and cheery with a walk in shower.

Living Room: Roomy and open with comfortable seating, 40'' Flat Screen HDTV with Satellite TV and a clear view of the lake for you to continually enjoy.

Kitchen: Our Kitchen is Fully Equipped with Stove, Microwave, Dishwasher, Refrigerator, Garbage Disposal, Coffee Maker (Keurig & traditional) and more. The kitchen has bar seating for three and a separate dining room. We also have a laundry room with washer and dryer for your convenience.

Outside: Large deck with outdoor dining set and gas grill; the deck area facing the lake is covered, with stunning views, and plenty of seating. We have ample covered parking as well. There is also an outdoor shower. Use of our golf cart is included with home rental for your quick and leisurely ride to private oceanfront access. We have chairs and other beach essentials to make your day at the ocean worry free and relaxing.

Other Amenities: Satellite TV and Wireless Internet access free during your stay

No smoking is allowed inside the house.

No pets permitted. We love animals, but the house needs to remain allergen free to accommodate our human guests.

You'll have free use of the golf cart as part of your rental. This is an approximate savings of $300.

Don't miss the chance to lower your altitude and adjust your relaxed attitude while vacationing at After Dune Delight.

About Ralph & April Valerio

We were stationed at Myrtle Beach Air Force Base in the 1980’s and lived in the Surfside Beach/Garden City area when we moved off base, so it was only fitting that we return to this area. This meticulously remodeled home is our way to enjoy the beach life again! We want to share this great home with fellow beach lovers. We hope you enjoy a relaxing stay at After Dune Delight…

Ralph & April Valerio purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Ralph & April Valerio chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

From the moment we saw the view from this home, we knew it was the one. We already enjoyed vacationing at Oceanside Village and realized, that with a little TLC, this would be the perfect vacation home.

What makes this cottage unique

Hands down and no contest, the view is the best part of this home!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July. We loved the house. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed the back porch, the ducks, geese, and turtles. The beds were comfortable. The house was clean. The additional feature of having the golf cart added ease of access to the beach. A nice community feel. Thanks Ralph & April Valerio for sharing their home with us.

Excellent Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in August 2016. It was amazing! The location was great and the unit was spacious and clean. The owners were very accommodating and trustworthy. I had some questions and spoke with Ralph over the phone because I had never used VRBO before, and he immediately alleviated any concerns I had. We have 2 young children (ages 2 and 4) who enjoyed watching the turtles and feeding the birds from the large deck overlooking the pond. The golf cart was a great perk to use to travel to the beach and to the Oceanside Village pool, which we used often! The owners have put a lot of thought into making sure this property has everything the occupants need. We were extremely happy with our vacation rental and would highly recommend to a friend. We would love to stay here again at some point in the future!

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for our family! Many advantages for choosing this vacation home. One, is owners are great to work with they make sure you have everything you need. Second, it's in a great location. Minutes from everything in the community. Either a short walk or a little golf cart away. Our children took advantage of the pond and did some fishing. We loved sitting on the back deck and just relaxing. The home has everything you will need for a greet vacation. We will be back!

Best Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here the week of June 25, 2016. It was my husband, my daughter and her 2 sons, ages 3 and 4. We have stayed at Oceanside Village many times in the past, but "After Dune Delight" is by far the cleanest, most updated, most organized place we have ever stayed in. Ralph and April have thought of any and everything you can imagine that you might need. The location of the house is awesome, right on the pond with a very nice deck and it is in a quiet section without a lot of traffic. I like the fact that there are no pets allowed, we love pets too, but my grandsons have allergies, so that was a plus also. We really enjoyed our stay here and again, it is the nicest house we have ever rented. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Fantastic house!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this house. The house was very clean and organized. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The shaded back porch was awesome for relaxing, and our children enjoyed watching the ducks and the turtles. The golf cart was also a wonderful "extra". Overall great house and great owners to work with!
