Crescent Shores condo description

Pre-Ad Commentary - I’ve been renting vacation properties that we own since 2003; timeshares, a condo and beach house. I rented with other online companies before signing on with VRBO and Vacation and that was before HomeAway owned either. I guarantee 98% of the owners on the HomeAway Network don’t respond as quickly as I do. A few months ago, the HomeAway Network starting coding the emails from guests and homeowners similar to emails with Craigslist; back and forth. It used to be that responses went directly to each others email address. I don’t go that route; I do more work and go to my owner’s site and retrieve your email that you typed in and when I respond, I hit reply and take out the coded address and send my personal email from me to you…..owner to potential guest! I don’t use the standard reply that could automatically be sent to you either…to keep you hooked…when I reply, it is from me and personally typed for you and you only. I don’t do the meddling HomeAway sending you what to pay me or you pay HomeAway and HomeAway pays me; I have thorough Rental Agreements and I offer up several telephone numbers that you can reach me, my family or my caretakers at and a few email addresses. I provide nice places to stay and I treat you the way I’d want to be treated. I just rented a place through HomeAway Net in Pigeon Forge and we had 2 problems and neither was the fault of the owner or her place to stay; both problems were caused by HomeAway. She said she was going to quit using the meddling automatic service too. I use HomeAway for people to find my rentals; that is it. They can percentage a long time great advertiser wherever they want. My last few email replies went out in 3hr15min, 34m, 3h3m, 5hr52m, 11m, 1h5m, 11hr25m, 2hr43m, 5m, 13h29m, 7h2m, 3h19m, 1h56m and I’ve been very busy doing other things and I never miss responding to anyone. I’d guess since 2003 over 50% of my email replies take place in less than a 4 hour response time? Read my reviews at 317074 and 81119.


This very nice oceanfront condominium, in one of the Grand Strand's best condominium complexes, has an outstanding view of the North Myrtle Beach coastline from the 27 foot oceanfront balcony with nice balcony furniture to enjoy nature's beauty. Let the ocean waves relaxing sound put you in a good mood.

Come and visit our condo, owned by a 67 year vacationer of the Grand Strand area and we still visit multiple times per year. We know the area very well and we'd be glad to help you in any way we can.

The complex features a 110 foot oceanfront pool, a 200' lazy river, a heated indoor pool, a kids pool, 2 large oceanfront jetted hot tubs and a nicely equipped exercise fitness room available to 16 and older. Crescent Shores has a nice wide sandy beach location with beach umbrellas and chairs available for rent right in front of the complex from late May to mid-September {Beach Services - (843) 280-5684}. Parasail and Banana boat rides are next door on the ocean side of Molly Darcy's Restaurant; rides by Myrtle Beach Watersports.

We have also played all of the golf courses at the Golf Capital of the World and the family has tested most of the amusements. Crescent Shores has convenient access from Highway 17 to Ocean Boulevard via 17th Avenue S. It's located across the street from a nice beachwear store and Cabana Mart convenience store; Molly Darcy's Oceanfront Grill is next door. We're nearby Barefoot Landing, Alabama Theater, House of the Blues, Tanger Outlets, Myrtle Beach Mall, Bass Pro Shops, Calabash, Little River, Restaurant Row, Cherry Grove Pier, OD Pavilion, Sun Cruz Casinos and a short drive to Broadway at the Beach, WonderWorks, Myrtle Waves Waterpark, NASCAR Speed Park, Myrtle Beach Pelican baseball, Carolina Opry, Palace Theater, Pirates Voyage, Medieval Times, Ripley's Aquarium, IMAX, Family Kingdom, Brookgreen Gardens, Battleship NC, Legends In Concert, Coastal Grand Mall, Market Commons, Murrells Inlet, Myrtle Beach Airport, Historic Wilmington, Myrtle Beach Speedway and other Grand Strand vacation destinations.

Our condominium features one king bed, four queen beds and three full baths. The master bath has a very large easy access separate shower and whirlpool garden tub. All bedrooms feature plenty of closet and dresser space and each has a TV, VCR, and DVD player. The living room features a 56' high definition TV, BluRay/DVD player and a stereo with cassette, MP3 and CD player. The bedrooms are carpeted and all other living space has beautiful large tile floors. The kitchen is very well appointed and has plenty of storage space and utensils. The condo has free WIFI service.

This unit (1608 South Tower) is located near the three large, quick elevators (with generator power back-up) and it has a great view of the area from the wide (street side) entry hallway. An exterior closet is available for beach supplies. The master bedroom and the living room both have sliding doors to the 27 foot oceanfront balcony with 6 chairs and a table.

About the Owner

We're from the small community of Pilot, NC. We both went to Bunn High School, I went to Wake Forest University on a partial baseball scholarship and my wife went to East Carolina University. As a young boy that was part of a rural farm family, my first baseball was a corn cob and my bat was a tobacco stick. I started in center-field for Campbell JC and Wake Forest with borrowed cleats and glove. I was in the US Army at Fort Jackson, SC during the Korean War and I played some professional baseball in Nova Scotia, Canada and Edenton, NC. We are both retired public school teachers. I was a US history teacher, a baseball and basketball coach and a principal for most of my career. My wife taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade and taught 3rd most of her career. We both taught Sunday school at our local church for 30+ years. I've been a Deacon, choir member and church moderator for around 63 years. I retired in 1985 and then sold real estate for 18 years. My wife retired in 1991; she took off 7 years while our children were young. I've been a member of the Lions Club since 1967 and a charter member and 3 time president of our local club. I won the International Melvin Jones Fellow Award for Humanitarian Services in 1991. I also served on the local school board for 8 years after retiring. We support our local public school and attend many sporting events there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is more than an excellent condo - it is a great condo. It is exceptionally clean and well maintained. It is evident that the owners take pride in this condo and want those renting it to be extremely satisfied. The property is in an excellent location. It is in a quiet and peaceful location yet it is close to shopping, entertainment and restaurants. I have stayed at his condo for a week in each of the last two years and will be there again this year and hopefully many years to come. In the last two years there has been no deterioration in the unit as if often the case. I would recommend this unit to a friend due to the quality and excellent customer service - any question is promptly answered via telephone or e mail. You will enjoy staying at this condo.

Wonderful Condo!

We really enjoyed staying in your condo the first week of November. It was very spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. We enjoy visiting Myrtle Beach in the fall when it's not so crowded and hope to be able to use your condo again in the future.

Best Condo Yet!!!!!

We came here at the end of September 2014 for the first time and it took our breath away. This by far was the best condo we had ever stayed at. This is a great condo for families and when we decide when we are coming back, we will hopefully be using this condo again and again. Thanks for a great week!!

Wish it was mine!

My family and I arrived and when we walked through the door, I was blown away by the accommodations, the view, the cleanHappy liness of the place, the location, the proximity to many of the attractions, etc. I can't think of anything that was missing (that I needed and it was not there) inside the condo. The review title sums it up!

Owner's Response: Nice title Cynthia and we really enjoy it and while it's not perfect, our standards will always keep it as a very nice place for people to stay and enjoy! If there is ever any issue, we want our caretakers or us to be called ASAP. The quicker we hear of any problem, the quicker it is solved. The owners first visited the Grand Strand in 1947 and they honeymooned there in 1954. As a young family we visited almost every year and when the owners (my mom and dad) retired, they purchased some timeshare weeks to enjoy in the Grand Strand and other places; they could not afford a condo. They then sold a farm that my 1 legged granddad had earned in the 1900's and the options were not many on the horrendous taxes that could be due. They did a like kind tax exchange on other real estate and we found Crescent Shores 1608 in late 2004, a few months after it was new. We love visiting a few times each year and I usually do at least some work on the condo each time I go. We'd love having your family come visit 1608 Crescent Shores again! Thank you for the nice review!

From the Owner

We've always loved the Crescent Shores location and we used to talk about that location when the old Rock'n K motel was there. We first visited the Grand Strand in 1947 and honeymooned there in 1954. We sometimes rented from Vanna White's mom and dad when they had a real estate company next to where the Crescent Shores parking deck is now. We've visited and stayed in 100+ Grand Strand condos, houses and motels over the years and we still visit new ones today to see what they offer. We migrated mostly to North Myrtle Beach in the early 1970's. When we chose Crescent Shores, we did it after an extensive search and we are happy with our choice. Our condo represents the sale of a family farm and a like-kind tax exchange; it does not represent public school teacher retirement!

From the Owner

We love the balcony view and sitting on it to watch nature and the lovely Atlantic. The sound of the ocean waves are quite tranquil. I'm a avid golfer and my wife enjoys riding the carts and looking at the courses. What better place to do it than the Golf Capital of the World? We've played them all so far and some many times; we're just waiting for the next one to open. It was a great place to visit as a young family in the 60's and it's a great place for granddad and grandmother visit today; especially when the grandchildren visit with us. Crescent Shores works very well for us and our condo has all the comforts and features of home and more. We personally take care of it to suit us and our renters.
