About Chris Alford
We're from the small community of Pilot, NC. We both went to Bunn High School, I went to Wake Forest University on a partial baseball scholarship and my wife went to East Carolina University. As a young boy that was part of a rural farm family, my first baseball was a corn cob and my bat was a tobacco stick. I started in center-field for Campbell JC and Wake Forest with borrowed cleats and glove and was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 1950. I was in the US Army at Fort Jackson, SC during the Korean War and I played some professional baseball in Nova Scotia, Canada and Edenton, NC. We are both retired public school teachers. I was a US history teacher, a baseball and basketball coach and a principal for most of my career. My wife taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade and taught 3rd most of her career. We both taught Sunday school at our local church for 30+ years. I've been a Deacon, choir member and church moderator for around 63 years. I retired in 1985 and then sold real estate for 18 years. My wife retired in 1991; she took off 7 years while our children were young. I've been a member of Lions Club International since 1967 and a charter member and 3 time president of our local club. I won the International Melvin Jones Fellow Award for Humanitarian Services in 1991. I also served on the local school board for 8 years after retiring. We support our local public school and attend many sporting events there.
Chris Alford purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Chris Alford chose Crescent Beach
We've always loved the Crescent Shores location and we used to talk about that location when the old Rock'n K Motel was there. We first visited the Grand Strand in 1947 and honeymooned there in 1954. We sometimes rented from Vanna White's mom and dad when they had a real estate company next to where the Crescent Shores parking deck is now. We've visited and stayed in 100+ Grand Strand condos, houses and motels over the years and we still visit new ones today to see what they offer. We migrated mostly to North Myrtle Beach in the early 1970's. When we chose Crescent Shores, we did it after an extensive search and we are happy with our choice. Our condo represents the sale of a family farm and a like-kind tax exchange; it does not represent public school teacher retirement!
What makes this Condo unique
We love the balcony view and sitting on it to watch nature and the lovely Atlantic. The sound of the ocean waves are quite tranquil. I'm a avid golfer and my wife enjoys riding the carts and looking at the courses. What better place to do it than the Golf Capital of the World? We've played them all so far and some many times; we're just waiting for the next one to open. It was a great place to visit as a young family in the 60's and it's a great place for granddad and grandmother visit today; especially when the grandchildren visit with us. Crescent Shores works very well for us and our condo has all the comforts and features of home and more. We personally take care of it to suit us and our renters.

Room was everything and more. The work on the building and street was a pain somedays but didn't hurt the over all stay. Would stay here over and over!!!!!
Thank you for leaving a review Heather; I hope your family will visit again! The city is working on the street and we (HOA) is having work done on the buildings.....all should be like new very soon, leaving Crescent Shores and its area in great shape! I went in after your stay and shampooed the carpet and cleaned up the balcony from construction. The newly upholstered living area furniture looks great as it did on the pics I was sent. I picked the fabrics out online from an upholster I had used before. I could not have done a better job being there! I had just installed all new faucets before your stay. Saturday when I left, the 56" living area TV started giving an error code. The local TV repairman said I might as well buy a new one...so I did. New Samsung 58" Smart Ultra HDTV 2160K with 4K color drive and WIFI connectivity for connecting to other devices, went in today. Thank you!
WE LOVED THIS CONDO!
This is a beautiful, spacious ocean front condo in a fantastic location! Clean, comfortable, well-kept, well-equipped, and well-furnished with all the amenities. The owners are conscientious and attentive to their guests needs. The location is close to restaurants, shopping and theaters. Everything is within a few blocks. During low tides we could see miles of beautiful beach and during high tides we stood on the balcony and felt like we were on a cruise ship surrounded by ocean while we watched dolphins playing! It doesn’t get better than this!
The condo was very nice and had plenty of room.We had 8 adults and 3 grandkids and there was still plenty of room.Condo was well stocked (cooking utensils) with everything we needed.Beautiful views of the ocean. There was a full moon while we were there.It was beautiful glimmering off the water. Enjoyed eating at the little Irish Pub beside the condo.Owner was easy to work with and always responded to my questions. Would have given it 5 stars but there is no private restroom by the pool and everyone checks in to there room at Three o clock. Very chaotic. There is a public restroom but you have to go beside the condo for this.
Thank you for the review Evan and thanks for visiting and we hope you come back again! Summertime is busy at every beach resort and check-ins normally begin at either 3 or 4PM; that puts a lot of people arriving at the same time at big resorts in the summer. 7PM - 11PM is a way of beating the summer peak season madhouse. It's peak because of the sun, water temps. and kids being out of school...that makes all beaches busy. Sept. and Oct. are my favorite times to go but most kids are in school at that time. There is no "private" restroom on the ground floor but the public one owned by NMB (the city) is about 35 feet from a pool gate and 20-25 feet from a Crescent Shores south tower covered walkway(one we are in) and it has 3-4 places for men and 3-4 for women to relieve themselves with partitions. Sinks and mirrors too. That public restroom is about 65 feet from Molly Darcy's that you mentioned; (I have pictures of that public restroom in case someone asked). The elevators (3 large ones in the south tower) are quick, 16 seconds in either direction but in the summer there can be stops along the way for sure. Thanks again Evan! (For anyone noticing, 10 is usually my max. occupancy. Evan had 3 that were 1.5 yr. old or below).
Great Spring Vacation with Grandchildren
This was everything advertised. A beautiful condo with plenty of room. The sunrises and sunsets were fantastic with a great view of the beach. Weather was perfect between 65-70 degrees and blue sky everyday. Beach was not crowded and water a bit cool but didn't slow my granddaughters down. The owners were a pleasure to work with and we would love to come back. Highly recommended.
Thank you for the nice review William and family!!! We're extremely glad you enjoyed some nice days with the grandchildren in our condo; precious times and to me, you can't beat the off season for quality. We'd be glad to have you back here at 1608 Crescent Shores any time or the beach house in Hatteras.
Great owners to deal with
Unfortunately we weren't able to stay in this lovely unit, but dealing with the owners was a very pleasurable experience and I would recommend them to anyone looking for an uncomplicated process.
Our 2016 Family Vacation
Our family (5 adults and a 2-1/2 year old) enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable and spacious condo, with a kitchen that had everything you needed (something you don't always find)! We really liked the location of this condo in Crescent Shores (very close to public park with tennis courts, as well as several nice golf courses) and the easy access to the wonderful beach. This was our first time renting via VRBO; we found the overall process worked great, in large part due to Chris' prompt responsiveness to our questions and genuine interest in being helpful. Thanks Chris for sharing your great condo with us!
Thanks for the very nice review Cindy; I appreciate you taking the time to do so! Come back to visit again....here or the Hatteras, NC beach house my brother owns and I rent out.
We're located in the Crescent Section of North Myrtle Beach, a city formed by 4 different beaches in 1968; sister city to Myrtle Beach, 4-5 miles to the south. Most people visit the Grand Strand and don't know there are 2 different cities. NMB is family friendly and home of Barefoot Landing, Alabama Theater and House of the Blues and much more. The section between the 2 cities is mostly referred to as Restaurant Row and inc. Myrtle Beach Mall and Bass Pro Shops (.5 mi. south of NMB) and Tanger Outlets (1 mile south of NMB). NMB is home to the Shag (dance), great beach music and hometown of Wheel of Fortune's Vanna White.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
Rentals are to all families or adults only groups of 25 years old or older. NO PETS, NO SMOKING, NO MOTORCYCLES, ATVs or TRAILERS. Monthly pricing 30 nights - December 1775, January 1545, Feb. 1545, March 1775; 90/120 night rates for $4350 AND $5800 TOTAL. No refunds until the period you booked is booked again; no refunds if it does not re-book. 100% if the period you book re-rents and it time is near and we need to drop the pricing to help you get most of your monies back, you pay the difference which is not refunded. If you think there is a possibility you can't go for any reason, you should look into trip cancellation or vacation insurance which is fairly cheap. I (owner) don't know if the HomeAway Network/VRBO offers that or not but insuremytrip.com offers it through several insurance companies. I've (owner) never purchased those insurances personally but I've had a few renters do so; it may not be a bad idea during Hurricane season.
