Marriott's OceanWatch Villas at Gande Dunes July 4
Description from the owner
This is a top ranked resort in the Southeast Area of the USA! We have available a total of 3 oceanfront platinum plus week villas. All 3 oceanfront villas are for the same time frame of Friday July 4th (4pm check-in) to Fri July 11 (10am checkout). We are willing to rent the villas individually or as a group. Please indicate the number of villas you have an interest in when you respond. This is a rare opportunity to plan a reunion or invite friends if you want more than one villa. Villas are not assigned until arrival so you could call Marriott to see if they can group them together if renting more than one villa.
All 3 of the luxury villas each have kitchens with full size refrigerator, stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and other appliances and utensils; washer and dryer, 3 TVs, DVD player in living room, wifi and access to all resort facilities. Master bedroom has a king size bed, TV, armchair, Jacuzzi bathtub, vanity with two sinks and a separate shower and toilet area. Guest bedroom has 2 queen size beds (bigger than full size) and a TV. Connecting is a second separate bathroom with tub/shower area with 2 entrances. A pullout queen size sleep sofa is in living room. All rooms have room darkening curtains (no annoying noisy blinds that let the light in too early). Also there is a table that can seat 7 or 8 if an extra chair from den is pulled up to table for dining (one side of table has a cushioned bench). BBQ gas grill stations are located around the property and most have picnic tables nearby
Beautiful views facing Myrtle Beach in the prestigious Grande Dunes private development. Wide beaches for sunbathing and the waves are great for boogie boarding.
On this property there are several large heated outdoor pools in addition to a children's zero entry pool (Woodsy Pool) with splash area, interactive water features, water slide and a 3 story tree house near the Garden View Villas. The resort is family orientated with day care and kid activities. Favorites are Kids Night Out, Dive- in Movies, roasting marshmallows and making smores over campfire pits. Adults like to socialize at wine tastings and martini tastings. An upper level pool over looking the beach has a waterfall into a lower pool that teenagers like. The resort also has several different sports courts, bocce, shuffleboard, volleyball, basketball, table top tennis, and a putting green. Boogie board and beach chair storage are next to the boardwalk with outdoor showers leading to the beach. A marketplace deli and convenience store are on site in addition to a beach bar and grill. The state of the art Fitness Center has a wide selection of Life Fitness cardiovascular and strengthening equipment, its own indoor heated pool, hot tub, steam room and sauna. Secluded outdoor whirlpool hot tubs are near the beach. A serenity pool has recently been added to the Woodsy Section for a peaceful retreat for the adults and a new spa for the resort side is located in the main building on the top floor. Villa occupants can also use the restaurant, spa, pool, slide, and other amenities at the Marriott Hotel located next to the resort.
Lots of entertainment close by: dinner shows, concert halls, theaters, movies, 120+ golf courses, put putt putt golf, water sports, water parks, go-carts, shopping centers, outlet malls, amusement parks, museums, gardens and an aquarium, etc... There is a lot to do even on rainy days. Villas are located approximately halfway between 2 huge famous outdoor shopping complexes Broadway on the Beach and Barefoot Landing. Please Google both to see the wide variety of amenities both offer. They stay open late (usually till 11pm) so there is plenty of time to stroll around the lakes looking at shops after dining at one of the many restaurants. Fireworks displays are on certain nights over the lakes.
All the villas in this resort are decorated similarly so please go to (website: hidden) and look up the resort to see additional photos. We think you are getting the best of the best with this rental. The best views (oceanfront) at one of the best resorts (ranked #1 on some surveys for the South East of USA) at one of the best locations (beach is less crowded because it is located in an exclusive luxury residential neighborhood) and the resort is near lots of dining and entertainment halfway between two huge shopping complexes.
