The 6 Biggest Benefits of Beach Houses

If you are planning on coming to Surfside Beach, South Carolina, for a vacation you’ll have a few choices for where you can stay. Some, like our beach houses in Surfside Beach, offer far more benefits than the others and it’s for that reason that it’s our number one recommendation when people ask us where they should stay.

We have beach houses in Surfside Beach1. Beach houses will offer you more space and more house for your money. Don’t settle for a cramped motel room or tiny condo when you can stay in spacious accommodations like these.

2. You’ll have more privacy in a beach house than you will in many other places. In many cases you’ll have your own private pool that you won’t need to share with other vacationers. Some beach houses also provide your own private walk to the beach.

3. Essentially, when you rent a beach house you’re not forced to share anything with anyone during the duration of your stay and we think that’s just tops. Don’t settle for anything less.

4. Our beach houses come fully furnished and beautifully decorated right down to the kitchen having everything you’ll need for meal prep.

The 6 Biggest Benefits of beach houses in Surfside Beach5. Patios and/or porches are something you can expect to have with a beach house. It’s a place where you can enjoy your coffee while you begin your day at your own pace or wind down at day’s end while you watch the sun set.

6. In a single family beach house you won’t have to contend with the noise of other vacationers on the other side of the wall. Nor will you have children running back and forth above your head. It’s just you and your family in a beach house that’s completely yours for the duration that you’re here.

Surfside Beach is a quiet, family friendly beach where you can enjoy your vacation in a peace filled way. Walk for miles or just relax in a lounge chair. However you want to spend it, you can spend it that way right here in coastal South Carolina.
 

Top 4 Things to do on your Beach Vacation

 Taking a break from reality is a much needed luxury this time of year. The holidays have come and gone, you’ve been back to work for two cold, dreary months, and you’re ready for a change of scenery. The weather is warming up in the Carolina’s, and our beaches are calling your name! So whether you’re interested in a romantic couple’s getaway, or a family trip packed with great memories, our beach properties are the right place for you. Here are some of our suggestions for what to do when you get to the beach:

1.       Tour like a visitor. Whether you take an off-shore fishing trip, or a quiet kayak tour through the inter-coastal waterway, take advantage of the beautiful landscape at the beach! Relax on the deck of a pontoon rental for the day, or get your heart racing in pursuit of a prize dolphin fish.

2.       Eat like a local. Scope out seafood restaurants and find yourself some of the Carolina’s most treasured delicacies. Shrimp and grits, fresh oysters, and Carolina-style BBQ should be at the top of your list of things to try.

3.       Relax. This may seem obvious, but for a lot of people, planning a vacation can be stressful and end up feeling like work. That is not what we want for our guests at Surfside Realty. That’s why we make it easy to find the perfect house for your trip where you can unwind. Work on your tan or cross something off your reading list.

4.       Make memories. Now is the time to put the everyday stresses aside, and spend time with those you love the most. The beach is a special place where laid back people and good vibes are all around. Take photos, build sandcastles, and make it a family vacation to remember!

So get yourself to the beach, where good times are had all year long. Read more about what to do at the beaches of Coastal Carolina, and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!

Check out Island Adventure Watersports for boat rentals, waterski and wakeboard adventures.

 

Jet Ski and banana boat rentals are a great way to amp up the action on the beach. Catch major waves and tear up the surf. If you’re looking for something a little more laid back, give kayaking or paddle boarding a try. Kayaks are great for leisurely solo adventures, and for touring the inter-coastal waterways. Set up a kayak tour for your group and learn about coastal geography and ecosystems. You may even spot a pod of dolphins! Stand up paddle boarding is also great way to tour the waters of Garden City Beach, and it’s great exercise too!

Rent a boat for the day and take the family out for an adventure. You can be your own captain and tour the waterways for skiing and wake boarding spots. You can also rent with a captain and totally relax on your day out on the water. You can bring fishing gear, food and drink, or whatever else you will need to make your boat trip the perfect adventure for the whole family. So get excited, your trip to the beach has plenty in store! Check out Reel Action Fishing Charters to get the most of your trip.

What You Should Know About Taking a Vacation to Myrtle Beach

Every year Myrtle Beach South Carolina is a favorite vacation destination of tens of thousands of families. Some prefer the summer months of June-August while others come during the off-season; some even stay the winter. There are some important things you should know about coming for a Myrtle Beach vacation that will make your visit go as smooth as possible from start to finish.

A Place to Stay
A place to stay on your Myrtle Beach vacationProbably the most important thing to know about planning your vacation to the area of Myrtle Beach is to make your reservations well in advance of your arrival. At Surfside Realty we have our vacation rentals listed right here on our website and you can sort them by location, number of bedrooms, and price. We also offer specials on our accommodations in Myrtle Beach, Garden City Beach and Surfside Beach, too.

Look around our site and if you don’t find what you’re looking for just give us a call and we’ll be happy to assist you.

About Those Beach Tides
For anyone coming to spend their vacation at the ocean it’s important to be aware of the tides and conditions. If you’re bringing small children then it’s best to swim where life guards are close by. Low tide (when the tide is the fartherest out) and high tide (when the tide is the closest to the dunes) occurs twice a day – once in the morning and once at night. There are many tide charts online and smart phone apps available that tell you the time of every low and high tide on any given day. If you ever see signage indicating rip tides, it’s strongly recommended you avoid that area.

Myrtle Beach vacation with petsAre Pets Welcome Here?
We have many vacation rentals available where pets are welcome to stay with you. Be sure before you book your reservations that they are. Vacation rentals accepting pets will ask for a security deposit in advance.

The majority of public beaches in the Myrtle Beach area are pet-friendly during early morning hours or during late evenings year-round. However, pets are not allowed on the beaches or Ocean Boulevard between 21st Avenue North to 13th Avenue South of Myrtle Beach at any time. Pets are also not allowed to be walked on any public beach in Myrtle Beach between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. from May 1 through Labor Day.

We look forward to your arrival in Myrtle Beach. If we can help you with your accommodations or answer any additional questions please give us a call at 1-800-833-8231 and we’ll be happy to assist you.
