About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Walk, don't drive to the beach! We feel we have the best location in Oceanside Village, the beach access is just steps from our door. Our house is located on the cul de sac of Lark, the closest street to the ocean at the corner of Melody Lane and Ocean Blvd. There is a convenient rear exit (and entrance if you obtain a key card) making access quick and easy to Ocean Blvd and the many nearby activities and restaurants!

Why pay ocean front prices when you will be steps away from the high price tag and still able to enjoy the many amenities of Oceanside Village.

We own two homes, side by side, each has four bedrooms. They may be rented together for large family gatherings.

Please check out our other house at listing: #1103875

Rates listed include all bed linens and bath towels. Avoid the hassle of packing sheets and towels, no need to take the time to deal with laundry and cleaning before you depart for home!

We are confident you will find our smoke-free home comfortable and inviting. The house is equipped with key less entry that is convenient for everyone in your party. Sit on the large front porch with a cold drink and watch the kids play or ride their bikes on the cul de sac. There is ample parking for three vehicles right in front of the house.

The kitchen is modern and fully equipped, the dining room seats six comfortably and the kitchen table seats four. The living room is furnished with sofa, love seat and chair, Digital cable TV, DVD player, and secure wireless internet. Views of the ocean, just 50 feet from the house, can be seen from the living room, master bedroom and adjoining enclosed sun room. The sun room also has table and chairs for playing cards, board games or your laptop computer.

The master bedroom has a queen-size bed with a private bath and television. The second bedroom also has a queen-size bed. The remaining two bedrooms each have a double bed, the fourth bedroom does contain the half bath for complete privacy. The laundry room offers a full size washer and dryer for your convenience.

Outdoor shower is a great way to wash the sand off before entering the house.

Just steps from the beach, you will find our home a great place to relax and enjoy the many amenities Myrtle Beach offers including: championship golf courses, water parks, Murrell's Inlet with many seafood restaurants, Broadway on the Beach and Market Commons shopping and entertainment and the Garden City Pier is just a mile away!

Our Beach House is a family rental. We adhere to a minimum age requirement of 26 years due to insurance and community restrictions.

About Cathy DiPietro

The Beach Houses have been in our family for a long time. Our parents bought 2158 Lark and then 2144 Lark (right next door) years ago so their five children could have a family beach home to visit. Our families have grown to include thirteen grandchildren; most of them still spend our week in August with the aunts, uncles and of course Gram and Pap! The younger cousins look forward to getting together to build 'sand cities', play mini golf, ride bikes, swim and play board games. The older girls love to walk the beach or go to the Garden City Pier area for ice cream and boys. The 'grown ups' love to golf, play tennis, ride bikes and go out to dinner. The ladies have found some fabulous new shopping areas nearby in the Common Market District and the Coastal Mall. And of course there is the yearly 'back to school' trip to the outlets! We now rent the houses in the summer months and hope you find them well equipped and comfortable. We like to spend some of our time doing little projects around the house--it's not like work when it's for a house at the beach!

As we mentioned, we love dining out. Murrell's Inlet is only a few miles south of our home so it's very convenient to great restaurants without the traffic of North Myrtle Beach. The photo shows some of the grandchildren in front of Divine Fish House. We hope you enjoy our Beach Houses as much as we do!

Cathy DiPietro purchased this house in 2006

Why Cathy DiPietro chose Surfside Beach

2158 Lark is steps across Ocean Blvd to the beach access. This beach is used by fewer families than the Oceanside Village public beach. We use the amenities of Oceanside Village and also find the Surfside area to be more family-oriented than Myrtle Beach itself, while still being convenient to many attractions.

What makes this house unique

The proximity of the house to the beach makes it perfect for taking lunch, bathroom and shade breaks during the day. The key less entry on the house also facilitates this. In addition, our family has a few tennis players, so we love that we can always get a court right in the Village. We've had some pretty serious bocce tournaments, too! We enjoy the closeness to the Conch Cafe for lunch or dinner.

What a fantastic location and owner!

  • 5 of 5

This has been a fantastic location for our annual family vacation. I cannot express to you how convienent this house is to the beach. Such an easy walk across the beach. This house is perfectly set up for beach operations. Has a great outside shower with heated water. Big outdoor porch with clothes lines to hang clothes. A lot of towels. Kids park has awesome water features for all ages. Rec. center has outdoor pool, indoor pool, volleyball court and basketball court.

The owner:

Catherine is about as great a landlord as you can get. The fridge went out while we were there. She had coolers immediately brought to us with ice. And had a new fridge to us the next day from lowes. She pulled some strings to get the fridge there. Saved 200 dollars in food we had just bought. Honestly, don't need be concerned about staying here. This is one of the best locations in myrtle beach.

Cute house, very close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We mananged to fit 9 family members into this cute 4 bedroom house. We cooked breakfast and dinner in the kitchen all 7 days. It was well stocked with pots, pans, and gadgets. It was also only a block away from a bi-lo, so grocery shopping was a breeze. We did buy a 22 inch charcoal grill, we left for the next family of guests. Lots of great memories we made both at the house and at the beach.

Great place, thank you!

  • 5 of 5

The place was exactly as described, and we had a fabulous stay! Loved the access to the beach, and my son (16 months old) was a big fan of the splash pad and pool!

Definitely recommend checking out the Conch Cafe!

Vacation Week

  • 4 of 5

We all really enjoyed our week. The home is in a great location and always clean. The only thing missing is a grill but we lived and loved staying there for the third time. Hope to return again.

Location is awesome!

  • 4 of 5

The house is so close to the beach! We loved going to the playground and pool. So much to do close by too! The house is nice. It's a little small and the bathrooms are incredibly small. But, we had a great time and the location compensated for small bathrooms:-)
