Why Spend Memorial Day Weekend 2017 in a Myrtle Beach Vacation Rental

What better way to spend the Memorial Day Weekend than at the beach? Each year, families and friends flock to the coast to do just that. Haven’t quite settled on plans yet? You still have some time!

Memorial Day falls this year on Monday, May 29th. With the three-day weekend, people typically make it into a mini-vacation. This particular holiday includes certain traditions, such as backyard barbecues, that are truly best carried out in a home. When you book your stay in a vacation rental, you get to have a vacation that feels like home.

Renting a vacation home allows you to stay put.

When you have a three-story oceanfront home rented out for the weekend, why would you ever have to leave? There’s something especially rejuvenating about going on vacation and truly not worrying about doing anything but simply relaxing.

The beach is in your backyard.

Even if your rental unit is not quite oceanfront, you will likely still be a short walk or golf cart ride away. There’s nothing better than not having to pack up the car to head to the beach.

All of the amenities you miss when staying at a hotel.

Community areas to spend quality time with your family, more than one bathroom, the list could go on. The biggest perk of renting a vacation home during your Memorial Day Weekend trip is the use of a kitchen! Memorial Day at the beach simply doesn’t feel the same when you have to dine out at a restaurant instead of grill out in your backyard.

There’s still plenty of time to book your Memorial Day Weekend with friends, family or just the two of you. See our list of available rentals to find your vacation that feels like home.
