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.
We chose this rental because it was pet friendly and that was the best part of the agreement. It was decorated more from estate sales than a beach cottage as featured: bedroom had two different shades of wicker mixed with Queen Anne dresser & table, brown sofa with white wicker chair, to name a few. Close to the beach, walking distance to route 17 and the shops and restaurants. The neighborhood was real nice with a lot of rental signs up on pretty houses (hmmmm!!) Our next door neighbors were real nice and glad we got to meet new people. We brought our own linens, foods, some cleaning supplies and paper products. Rental included some cooking and eating wares but no trash bags (we only got one). One quick email and they left a bunch of them on the porch. Easy to access the doors to washer area and condo, We followed the check out list and did the trash/recycle request. Condo is Wifi accessible and a far better place to vacation than the first place she put us in the night before - that place was not adult friendly.
