Guestbook comments from the owner

Taken from our Guest Book:

Jim & Lori,

We cannot tell you how delightful your beach cottage was for our family. We enjoyed our time at your house as much as we did on the beach- in fact, the deck is so spacious that we would choose to sit out on the shaded deck over the beach most days. (We are grandparents and enjoyed some of our own 'down time' alone as well) I can tell you that we have found a cottage that meets our families needs as far as size, location and proximity to the beach.

Thanks for a wonderful time.

Wonderful home and owner!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly as the picture and was well kept and very clean. Our large family enjoyed the entire week at the beach staying this home. The owner was excellent to work with before, during and after our stay. The parking is great to have all our cars at the home and even have place for the golf carts. I would highly recommend this home and seller in renting this home. We look forward to renting again next year. Thanks so much!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Andrea for your review and all of your nice words. You are correct in that our homes are exactly like the pictures both inside & out. We work very hard and hand in hand with our cleaning service to keep up on all aspects of each house. Thanks for mentioning about the ease of parking, as we are on one of the widest roads in Ocean Lakes which makes for very easy pull in/out. We do look forward to you visiting us again, hopefully in 2016!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at this beautiful beach home. We had plenty of room and it was very well maintained. The accommodations were EXCELLENT! We were close enough to the beach that we could walk or take the golf cart. LOTS of parking space. The owners were very quick to respond during the initial process of renting and kept me in the loop as our date approached. LOVED your beach home. We hope to return in the future.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay in Myrtle Beach immensely! The home was so beautiful and very well maintained. The accommodations were fantastic! We loved having all of the comforts of home while on vacation (full kitchen, washer/dryer, grill). We were so close to the beach and within a short driving distance of other attractions. The owners were so accommodating and courteous making it very easy to plan our trip. We will definitely return in the future

Beautiful Beach House in Ocean Lakes

  • 5 of 5

First, we just want to say that it was a pleasure working with the owners. Second, the house is exactly as described. Spacious layout, clean, great seating inside & out on the decks. We did not have the greatest weather so we were inside a lot and really enjoyed our family time together. Be sure and visit the recreation building where you can get free books, magazines and puzzles. We did enjoy sitting on the covered decks most of all.

We would recommend this house to our family and friends and we cant wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Shannon for the nice compliment. It was our pleasure as well! Sometimes it takes a little rain to bring families together and force some relaxation on everyone! I'm glad you enjoyed the amenities that the resort offers- the recreation center is great for a rainy day- arcade, ping pong, arts & crafts and ceramics are all offered. I'm so happy that you and your family will be visiting us in 2015 as well!

Beach house and family camping

  • 3 of 5

My family and friends rented this home for our summer beach trip. This was the first time for our family in Myrtle Beach. Although the description states that the home sleeps 14, I feel that might be a little tight. We had five adults and three children and a baby and it was comfortable. Any more would have been overcrowded as there is limited kitchen/living room space.

Future renters should note that this home is located in a family campground property, thus the pool is shared by the entire camping/beach house community (slightly more crowded than I thought). The kiddie pool/splash zone was great for our three year old and nine month old! The location of the house was not what I expected as Ocean Lakes Family Campground (the facility where this beach house is located) was extremely crowded - houses are very close together. However, I felt very safe when I would run in the early morning as there is security 24hrs.

Rent the golfcart! It is money well spent! The homeowners were wonderful to work with.

Although it was not what I expected, we had a great time and now understand the layout of the different communities in Myrtle Beach.

Owner's Response: The history of Ocean Lakes and how it is still part campground has significance to what it has evolved into today. 45 years ago the Jackson Family bought the property and established it as a campground. Throughout the years and some major hurricanes later, for safety sake, they decided to do something different with the grounds. They allowed houses to be built above flood stage on the spots where the campsites used to be. Mr. Jackson, an avid camper asked that a small part of the grounds remain as actual campsites- a family tradition he loved for over 60 years. Both he and his wife have recently passed away, both in their 90’s and within a year of each other. We cherish the campground side of the resort- we take cart rides every night while we are there just to smell the campfires! We hope that the Jackson Family will always honor their wish and keep a small part of Ocean Lakes a camping area so that like them, families can enjoy camping and the beach, and all within steps of one another. (This is not tent camping- you should see the deluxe motor homes!) If you have read the signs upon entering Ocean Lakes you will see the banners hanging for years of winning “Best of the Beach”- this is why in MB, Ocean Lakes is the # 1 vacation destination year after year. The resort itself and all it offers is what helps us rent our house year after year! To just own a beach house is great- to have a beach house located within Ocean Lakes is even greater and we wouldn't change a thing about it!

From the Owner

After vacationing all of our lives in Myrtle Beach, both at resorts and campgrounds, we came upon Ocean Lakes- the best of both worlds! It is truly a resort where you can 'let the kids go' and feel very safe in doing so. Many of the years we would do all of the wonderful touristy things that MB has to offer, but now that we found Ocean Lakes, we cherish vacationing without leaving the grounds and just relaxing at the house and beach. We love the location of the houses because it is not on the very busy 'strip' or ocean front where you hear the fireworks all night- you can view the fireworks from the decks, but we are away from the busyness of it all. We are a very short walk to the beach- only 200 yards.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Myrtle Beach at 6 Miles Nearest Motorway : Route 17 Business $ Rt. 544 at 1 Miles Car: not necessary

Ocean Lakes has everything you could ask for in a family vacation. It

has one mile of private beach front ocean access and is a gated

community/resort with all the amenities you will need for a great

stay. HUGE new water park with an Olympic-sized pool, an indoor heated pool, a kiddie water play area with fountains and mounted squirt guns, lazy river and more! There are 2 playgrounds, and 2 snack shops that serves snacks and ice cream all day.

Take your nightly golf cart ride down to the camping side of the resort and savor the smell of the camp fires or join in the golf cart parade down at the 'strip'- an activity loved by all ages!

Do you have young children and need a little break from them while on vacation?

Enroll them in Kamp Starfish, a 1/2 day camp program which the kids

will love. Planned activities at camp await them! (Available during summer months)

Next to the pool is a huge recreation building where you will find scheduled activities for young and old alike (Bingo, ceramics, arts&crafts, also free miniature golf, corn hole and horseshoe tournaments).

Here you can also get great discount coupons for golf and many of the

local attractions. Enjoy the new arcade with over 80 fun filled

games. Find your groceries in the grocery store and gift shop for your

everyday needs. Eat at Sandy's Meet & Eat and enjoy breakfast,

lunch and dinner at very reasonable prices. Also you will find

basketball, volleyball, shuffle board and ping-pong. Drive around the

grounds on a rented golf cart or enjoy renting a bike right from

Ocean Lakes. Once here, you do not need to leave for anything!!

This is truly a place where you can let the kids roam around in a

very safe environment. Security is 24/7 and strictly enforced.

Visit us in October- All 3 weekends feature an identical schedule, full of traditional activities and entertainment such as pumpkin carvings, costume contests (human and pet), a magic show, and Trick o' Treating in a safe and inviting atmosphere (on campground side- all are invited!)

In Myrtle Beach you will find:

Biking, Golf, Amusement Parks, Fishing, Horseback Riding, Shopping, Restaurants, Live Theater, Cinemas, Museums, Sightseeing, Boating, Boardwalk, The new HUGE ferris wheel, Sailing, Water-skiing, Windsurfing, Parasailing, Jet Skiing, Shelling, Zoo, Aquarium, Outlets for shopping, shopping, shopping!!!
