About Daphne Heffler

I grew up in South Carolina and spent many summers at Myrtle Beach. Not being a camper, I had never been to Ocean Lakes as a teenager. My first trip was after I was married and had two children and we were invited to camp with friends. We were hooked!! Very soon we bought a small camper set up on a permanent site. Our children loved everything about the place! They fished in the lakes, enjoyed the beach, the pools, the old arcade (destroyed by Hugo), the golf cart rides,and the friends they met each summer. Not only was it convenient for us as we lived in SC but it was their favorite vacation spot. It was also a good weekend get away for me from my hospital job as an administrator in a busy critical care unit. We enjoyed that small camper until our children went away to college and had other activities and interest. My brother couldn't wait to buy it for his family! We didn't go to Ocean Lakes for several years and were very surprised when we visited again 6 years ago. Again we fell in love with what we saw! We could not believe there are actually 7 bedroom houses on sites like our camper had set! We could not resist purchasing one of them for our grandchildren to enjoy. They are now experiencing the same magic and enjoyment of Ocean Lakes which their parents knew as teenagers. Given a choice, they would not go anywhere else for vacation. I am thankful we have a house large enough for all of them to get together. We enjoy family time together and after they all leave I enjoy sitting on the deck with a view of the ocean, a cup of coffee, a good book, and then a walk beside the ocean at sunset. Life is good, God is great.

Daphne Heffler purchased this house in 2006

Why Daphne Heffler chose Myrtle Beach

After owning a very small camper (sleeps 4), I was amazed to find a house in Ocean Lakes with 7 bedrooms!! We looked at houses with 4, 5, and even 6 bedrooms. Then the realtor said I just want you to see 7 bedrooms eventhough the house was out of our price range. I was most impressed with the bedroom privacy as compared to some of the other houses with larger bedrooms and more beds per room. I was also very impressed with the potential use of the space on the decks. There is ample room for adults to have privacy, teenagers to have their privacy, or for everyone to be together. The back upper deck is a great place for sunning or a large shaded area on the back lower deck provides a place for anyone wanting to avoid the sun. Any of these areas offer great ocean breeze and Ocean views. This house seems to meet the needs of everyone. We have found that not only does it meet our family needs but also meets multigenerational needs of many others.

What makes this house unique

Location! Location! Location! The ocean views are great, the beach is less than 100 steps away, the pool, play ground and recreation area are all within walking distance. The parking is more than ample and there is access from front and back of the house for easy entrance to park. This house allows a family to vacation together. It is great for church groups. The space allows the group to all meet together or to divide up into smaller groups for activities.

Note: This is a family vacation home. We maintain a strict policy of no smoking, no pets, and no house party groups. We do not rent to anyone under the age of 25.

We support Ocean Lakes policy of maintaining an environment for families to enjoy. Our rules are enforced without exception and are intended to help maintain a safe environment for your family vacation.

WiFi is now available at this house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Note from a guest. Four couples and one single stayed in your lovely home for a staff retreat after our girls left, to finish the week out! We enjoyed laughter, tears, fellowship, and renewal in the Lord Jesus Christ. We shared visions of what God can do when people get excited about His work. Thanks for giving the staff and wives, husbands,such a great opportunity.

Excellent Property! Do Not Pass This One Up!

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing! There was more than enough room for everyone. The community is what really put the property over the top. The beach was a 40-seconds walk from the front door. The community pool was no more than 4-minutes from the house. There were two 4-story waterslides, kiddie pools, lazy-river, a large pool, all completely free to the renters. The communication between owner and renter is great, whether it's by e-mail or phone. I highly recommend the house.
