One of our guests summed up this property perfectly in a letter we recently received:

“A jewel in Surfside Beach! We have been renting this property for the past 6 years. It is such a perfect rental for us that we have had no desire to look elsewhere. The home is beautiful and well-kept. It has the amenities you would desire and the location is perfect. It is near many of the attractions but far enough to provide a very relaxing atmosphere. Some of the local attractions are a leisurely stroll down the beach or a casual walk down the sidewalk. It would not be easy to find a better vacation rental.”

Choosing a winter vacation rental that's perfectly suited to you can make a big difference in the level of enjoyment that your vacation destination has to offer.

Whether you’re looking for a high rise condo, low rise condo, townhouse, duplex, or single family vacation home, we have plenty for you to consider.

On our website you can browse Myrtle Beach winter rentals and you’ll see the full list of available rentals in the Grand Strand region. Take your time and read the various descriptions, noticing the amenities that each rental offers its guests, pay attention to any restrictions, and look for any special deals they might be offering. Prices fluctuate based on date of your arrival and length of stay but sometimes you can save even more when you make your reservation by a certain date, regardless of when you’ll be staying here. Always read the fine print — especially on the special deals and limited time offers. Nobody likes last minute surprises — unless they’re good ones, that is.
