Nice beach house close to the ocean

  • 4 of 5

The beach house is nice, clean, and pretty well stocked with kitchen supplies for cooking, etc. The outdoor shower was wonderful, especially to wash off our little kiddos after playing at the beach. The golf cart was great to have, to help lug all the beach stuff to the beach, and to also get around the neighborhood. The "private gated neighborhood" was much larger than I had envisioned, but this home sits on a side street, only one block from the road that is closest to the ocean, so the location was good. It is 1 mile from the entrance though, which I had not realized how large the neighborhood was.

We have 3 kids ages 5, 3, and 1, and this house was probably not ideal for little kids. The porch had a gate, which was great so our little one would not fall down the stairs. However, there are many decorations we needed to move out of little hands' reach so nothing would be damaged, and none of the bedroom doors close correctly. This presented a problem because if we ever needed to open/close a door to the room where a child was napping, it would make a loud popping noise, because the doors stick, and wake them up. Also, the bunk bed mattresses are not much more than a bed roll, and would not be suitable for a child over the age of 4-5. Just something to keep in mind if you plan to use those bunk beds for older children.

The other issue (which has nothing to do with the house or owners) is that the outdoor pool has this awesome splash pad area for little kids. However, it is so slippery that every kid I saw running on it would slip and fall. Many kids got injured, and this prevented us from visiting the outdoor pool after the first day. Oceanside Village should fix that and add a non-slip surface to prevent injuries.

Overall, it was a great experience, but if we travel with our young children again to Myrtle Beach, we will probably have to stay somewhere a little more kid-friendly.

Jeff was wonderful to communicate with, and was very responsive. He explained everything well. It was a good experience overall! If you are traveling with adults only, or older children, it would be a great place.

Very nice home and perfect location!

I have been vacationing in the myrtle beach area for many years and this home is definitely on the top of my list. The location is great and the home itself was stocked with anything you would ever need inside and out!

First Rate Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We found this beach house to be very relaxing. The home appears to be professionally decorated and every room has a beach theme. We cooked and ate several meal at the home during our stay and found the kitchen to be well furnished for the 6 of us. The kitchen is laid out well and has everything that you need. Two of the three bedrooms are a little tight but this did not pose a problem for us. The room with the bunk beds tends to stay warm but a fan was provided to help cool it down. There were several ceiling fans that we enjoyed using. The beds were comfy and the pillows were high quality. All of the appliances were in working order too. The location is one of this homes greatest assets. In my opinion it is located on the best street in the neighborhood. It is an easy walk to the beach or Conch Cafe'. We used the golf cart and found it to be much nicer than your standard golf cart rental. We love the outside pool area especially in the late evenings. The pool area is kept very clean and we like this. We love Oceanside Village and the fact that we can find a family friendly, affordable, place to stay where we can also bring our dog. He wasn't crazy about the nightly fireworks but he got used to it after a couple of nights. The owners are very easy to work with and respond to e-mails quickly. It is very evident that they take pride in their home. It is very likely that we will return in the future.

Adorable beach house in excellent location!

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed our week-long stay in your beach house! It is decorated in lively, fun colors with a very "beachy" vibe! The house's location is perfect - with a quick walk to the beach or a short golf cart ride to the pools. Very family friendly house and community. The only reason I give this house 4/5 stars is that the beds are pretty uncomfortable. An upgrade in mattresses throughout the house would go a long way! The rest of the house is very comfortable. Plenty of seating for our family of 7 (4 adults and 3 children). The kids enjoyed playing on the deck space. The outdoor shower is fabulous for getting sand off when returning from our mornings at the beach. When we return to Surfside Beach, we'll definitely be looking to stay here again! Thank you!!

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return for your next family vacation. We are sorry that you found the mattresses to be uncomfortable. We just replaced all of them in May of this year. We will take a look at them and see what needs to be done. Thank you, Jeff and Evelyn

The property is very clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed the beach house . The location of the house to the beach was perfect and having the private parking lot was a plus . If you have kids this is a perfect place to stay with the indoor and outdoor pool, small water park, basketball and tennis courts. The house is very cozy and clean and I loved the deck especially in the morning drinking my coffee. I highly recommend this house the owners were great we will be back again .
