“Cozy and beautiful beach condo”
This condo at Mar Vista Grande is beautiful, right on North Myrtle Beach. We enjoyed our week stay. Anna,the owner was very responsive to all of my questions and emails. She was Lovely to deal with. I told her carpet had stains on it when we arrived, and she is going to replace the flooring. There is no iron or ironing board, so you would need to bring your own. Washer and dryer worked great. There is supposed to be no smoking throughout the entire condo building including pool area and balconies which we like because we are not smokers. People staying in condo to the right of us, 1206 smoked daily on their balcony. We couldn't sit outside on our balcony because of it. The beach was wonderful. We bought boogie boards and spent hours riding the waves. You can rent an umbrella and two beach chairs for five days from the local Myrtle Beach company for $125. A lot of people smoking cigarettes and cigars were on the beach all day long!! It was very annoying to try to relax and enjoy the beach with the smokers. Once your beach equipment you rent is put there, you are stuck when people who smoke set up in front of you and behind you. Mar Vista has a little bar hut that served beer but no liquor. So when we ordered Pina coladas for $8.00 each we were not told about no rum in them until after drinking them. They are served with white wine. My husband asked what rum they used and they said none. We wouldn't have ordered them if they would have been honest from the beginning. You can get a regular Pina colada for $5. The indoor pool was great when we needed relief from the sun. We spent time at Barefoot Landing and Broadway at the Beach. Both are nearby and have activities for all. Both had awesome fireworks! Overall we would recommend this condo.
Response from the owner The review is informative and very much appreciated. I wish, however, that I had known of the below while the guest was still there: * The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and a regular closet. The iron and ironing board are in the regular closet. * People should report smoking to the HOA. I will provide instructions in the check-in instructions. Thank you very much for the feedback.
When we arrived we found the carpet dirty, mold on top the refrigerator ,dirt in the corners and around the carpet, the top of the bed was covered with dust and I had to wipe clean . We washed all the Sheetz in all three rooms because they smellEd so bad, was very uncomfortable. I must say the owner was sorry that her unit 1205 was in such bad condition she depended on her cleaning people to take care of it because she lives out of town so in saying that we ended up getting another unit in The same building Mar Vista Grande. The owner Anna gave us a full refund and apologized. Unit 1205 needs to be updated and made more beachy it was so dark it made you depressed Just a suggestion (to update unit ..no carpet, new furniture etc) Cynthia with Elite Realty #1011. (WONDERFUL HIGHLY RECOMMEND ). WE HAD TO PAY MORE MONEY FOR A DIFFERENT condo unit 1011 I must say it was worth it. SPOTLESS
Response from the owner
With mostly 5 stars and never anything less than a 4 stars rating in the 10 years that I have managed this rental unit, this one-star rating surprised and bothered me.
First a few facts: This guest rented my unit from 4/22 to 4/29. I was on a business trip at that time. She called and texted after hours to complain about the a few spots on the carpet and some dust. After I received her email on 4/25 about the carpet and refrigerator, I immediately ordered a next day special carpet/refrigerator cleaning. When I informed her of the cleaning, she complained about damp carpet and possible allergies. At that point, I did not want any more drama so I offered her a full refund. So basically, she had stayed in my condo for 4 days for free.
About the condo decoration, it is actually an area of pride for me. It is classy and upscale as can be seen on all my advertising websites. Perhaps it’s a matter of taste.
To better frame the situation, I am including below 2 related emails, one from the guest who stayed at the condo the previous week (4/15 – 4/22) and one from my cleaning service right after this guest left. I have removed the last names and email addresses due to privacy.

“Pictures didn't do this gorgeous condo justice”
My family and I have a wonderful stay in this condo. The condo is in an excellent condition. And the view from the balcony is just breath taking. The owner, Anna, is very nice and prompt at every steps and requests. I would definitely be staying at this condo again when I go back to visit Myrtle Beach.
Our stay at MarVistaGrand was amazing. Anna made the whole process so easy and answers all questions promptly. The condo unit was beautiful and pictures don't do it justice. It is in pristine condition and the appliances are top notch, and the beds are very comfortable. The location is great, easy access to the main roads and shopping, dining and entertainment. We loved the heated pools, lazy river, and long walks on the beach. The sunrise from the balcony was beautiful. Loved having coffee on the balcony, watching the dolphins and pelicans, long walks on the beach and the sound of the ocean.
The woman in my family (including children) decided to do a "girls vacation". We loved our stay. We were already talking about next year coming back to the same condo. The condo is amazing. The floor plan of the condo is wonderful. Anna was wonderful to work with. The booking was effortless. Thanks anna for making our first "girls vacation" a total success.
This was a family vacation and there were 10 of us but we had plenty of room. The condo was very clean and nicely furnished. The view from the balcony was super and the beach and pools were great. The location couldn't have been better. We found several great restaurants nearby(Chuck's Steakhouse,Sticky Fingers,and Carolina Roadhouse). The entire group loved this place and would gladly stay here again. Renting from anna was very easy. Friends recommended this place to us and we will be highly recommending it to others.
“Excellent location and condo”
My husband & I rented the condo for a week for vacation and to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. It's an excellent spot and the condo is in great condition. We would come back again. Dealing with the owner was great and was a very easy and pleasant experience.
We spent a delightful 5 weeks in anna's 12th floor ocean front condo overlooking North Myrtle Beach. The well decorated spacious condo provides all the comforts of home with a spectacular view of the atlantic Ocean from the private balcony. The Mar Vista Grande is an excellent facility with its indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs as well as covered parking. We also enjoyed the NMB area which offers great shopping, entertainment and dining options. We highly recommend anne's condo for your vacation and we planning on returning for many years to come.
“Perfect Place for Vacation”
My wife and 1 year old stayed in this condo with 5 friends/family. It was one of the most enjoyable vacations we've experienced and a lot had to do with the great experience at the condo. Master room was very accommodating for my wife and child. The shower was perfect for the 1 year old to walk into and shower after a day at the beach and he loved the tub with jets. The other bedrooms were very nice and very spacious for the rest of the gang to sleep in, especially when the child was awake at 6-7am every morning. The living area and kitchen was perfect for cooking any meal and very spacious for everyone to enjoy, counter/bar is great! The view from the balcony was picture perfect, so relaxing in the morning, after a day at the beach, or to hangout after dinner in the evening. The indoor/outdoor pools were very clean and never seemed to be overcrowded. The private access to the beach is great. So many shops/restaurants nearby, didn't have any issues with the evening commute. All appliances were modern and worked very well. Though we didn't have any issues during our stay, Anna and abigail were very responsive when we had questions during our stay. This place is great for all ages and very accommodating for all (we had young family, single vacationers, and couples)so if you're looking for a place I would highly recommend this place for all ages, families, and mixed vacationers with different interests. We are already planning our stay next year! Thanks anna, Dustin B and gang!
“A Little Slice of Heaven”
Myself and my two best friends decided that we wanted to leave the craziness of Derby week in Louisville so we ventured to South Carolina. Our decision was last minute but anna was wonderful in getting us all set for our ever so quickly approaching arrival. Being a bit skeptical, I questioned if the pictures were true that were posted on the web site. Well let me just say, the pictures do not do the condo justice. It is a lovely condo that offered a home feeling. Everything you had at home, was available in the room. Although there were plenty of TVs, you would either find us on the balcony of our condo watching the ocean, walking along the beach or enjoying the many pool/hot tub options. There are various places within walking distance for those without a vehicle, but other areas were also not far. Our stay was wonderful and we are already eager to plan our return trip to this condo only. I truly can't say enough about how enjoyable our stay was. It was most definitely hard to leave.
