Condo, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)
My name is Franca and my husband's name is Carl. We live in upstate New York with our three active kids. Like most families, we are very busy year round, therefore, when we have time, we love to spend it together as a family, especially vacationing. There is something so calming about the seashore and the southern coast. I know when we travel to our condo, my husband and I feel like weight has been lifted and it is a slice of heaven to sit and watch the ocean and it's surroundings. We wish we never had to leave! I'm a personal trainer and manage a small company and my husband is a CPA and we also invest in real estate on the side. I handle the majority of the management of our rental properties. During one of our trips to Myrtle Beach, we found 'Ocean Blue'. We immediately feel in love with it. We knew it was going to be the best rental villa ever. We hope you enjoy our home away from home as much as we do. Thanks for your interest. Franca & Carl Groves
Franca purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Franca chose Myrtle Beach
Ocean Blue is a unique, upscale 'boutique' Oceanfront resort with a total of 36 luxury residences with only 3 units per floor. Each unit has dramatic views and exceptional attention to detail. Most importantly, we love the buildings sense of privacy and exclusive feel that is not offered at any other resort in Myrtle Beach. In addition, the building's location on Ocean Boulevard is close to everything Myrtle Beach has to offer!
What makes this Condo unique
Sitting in one of the rockers on the ocean front balcony while sipping a drink and listening to the gentle Atlantic surf...Now That's Living! The condo has a cozy home-like feel. It's loaded with luxurious features like granite counter tops, separate media room, huge oceanfront balcony, jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom. Not to mention, the kitchen is equipped with double ovens, stove top, microwave, two refrigerators and two dishwashers. I could go on and on but I think you get the idea...This is truly a unique property...

AN AUGUST AT MYRTLE BEACH
Ocean Blue Condo was a wonderful experience
What a nice large and well maintained unit. It looked exactly like the pictures.Over 5000 square feet of luxury. Everything functioned properly. 12 of us could spread out. Such a nice view of the Ocean and so close to the water.we loved the large balcony. 3 swimming pools and a balcony. We could not have had a better time.
Galen, we want to thank you very much for your appreciation to the condo. You were wonderful guests and took very good care of our home. We are very glad the space and the amenities worked for you and your family. Come back and visit us in the future.
This was our second year renting this condo, it has become a yearly tradition. The condo is spacious, well stocked with kitchen items, right on the beach. The amenities of the grounds are great and the parking garage keeps your car out of the sun.
Was our first time renting a condo. Was a little hard figuring locks at first but all worked out . We had a great week with our family, there was 14 of us so condo was plenty big . One little issue with AC a call to owner it was fixed in a couple of hours.
Thomas, We are happy that you and your large family enjoyed the condo and Myrtle Beach. Both A/C units are brand new this year, so we were surprised that there was an issue. We were very glad that the issue was resolved quickly. They do work extra hard during these hot summer months.
We find having pin codes for lock entrances instead of keys, works much better for us and our guests. I am sorry that you had difficulty w/ the pin pad instructions.
We hope to hear back from you in the future. Thanks!
Has great potential
This unit has great potential! The property itself (pool,elevators, hallways, common areas) is immaculately clean and well kept daily. Security is number one priority.
This condo has many great qualities...fabulous balcony with rocking chairs and table for 6 to eat. Wonderfully stocked kitchen with 2 refrigerators, 2 stoves, 2 dishwashers, 2 toasters, 2 coffee pots and all of the kitchen essentials you could ever need. Parking is just steps away from the door to the unit. Accessible shower stall with a shower chair provided. Convenient and easy beach access.We slept 9 people comfortably with room for many more. Full size washer and dryer
Things I would have liked to know before renting this unit:
-minimal bath towels and no where to hang towels to dry between showers so when the Dryer stopped working while we were there, that became a problem. The owner said there was someone coming to fix it-no one came-never heard from owner again.
-furniture and appliances are worn, tattered and grungy looking
-some bedrooms don't have dresser drawers or closets-no where to put your belongings.
-beach access from the condo is locked at from 10pm-9am
if you are an early riser or like to walk on the beach at night you have to use public access a couple of buildings down the street. Some of the hotels around this property are a little "shady" looking so this didn't feel safe
-No toilet paper upon arrival-not a single sheet-in 4 bathrooms!
-the unit was "surface clean" when we arrived but needed a good deep cleaning-baseboards, ceiling fans, slatted closet doors. We found socks and others belongings under furniture.
Overall, a very nice property with lot of potential. The owner just needs to give it a little TLC.
Oceans Blue stay 6/01-6/08/19 was great!
This property was perfect for us. We had 3 families, 6 adults and 6 kids. Plenty of room for all. Condo was well stocked and everything worked as expected (except one TV which didn't matter to us). Pool and beach access was great. Parking worked out well for us. This is a very pleasant property for a large group!
Glen and Family, we are so glad you enjoyed our condo! I was glad we had a phone conversation after reading your review and since we were actually in town, we were able to check on that television. It worked fine, a prior renter had unplugged the cable lines. We hope you visit Myrtle Beach and stay with us again! We would love to have you.
2 minute beach walk to beach sports rental location, where you can rent Jetskis, parasail, banana boat, etc. Also, large indoor/outdoor bar and grill located by beach rental office.
