About Jim & Lori Schutte

We are a family of 6, mom & dad, 3 girls and a boy. They range from one married, to a US Marine, down to high school and our dog Roxy! (BTW- Roxy does not vacation with us as we are a pet free home!) We truly feel Blessed to be able to own a vacation home in Myrtle Beach, but especially in Ocean Lakes. Our very favorite thing to do is vacation as a family.

Jim & Lori Schutte purchased this house in 2004

Why Jim & Lori Schutte chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

After vacationing all of our lives in South 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.

What makes this house unique

Come sit on either one of our covered decks- the wrap around porch or the double decker and chat with your family and friends! Take time from your busy life to get to know each other again. If you are a large family, enjoy vacationing right next to each other. Sit back, relax and enjoy yourself!

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.

A nice house and location

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice, spacious house in a great location. We have rented this house multiple times and have not been disappointed. The house is clean and well maintained. The layout suits our needs (kids love the bunk beds) There is room for everyone to park. We really enjoy the large deck where we can all hang out. We also love the short walk to the beach. We enjoy everything that the campground has to offer! There is just something magical about driving around in the golf cart and taking in all the sights and sounds. I would recommend either house (although we prefer house 2) to anyone with a larger group/family.

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!
