Surfwatch III 301

Even if you’re vacationing in a condo instead of a full house, you can still have a luxurious full-size kitchen. There’s plenty of counter space and all the appliances you’ll need to cook up a meal for your family at Surfwatch III 301. This two bedroom oceanfront condo is ideal for a small family wanting a relaxing week at Myrtle Beach.

Easy Recipes for Your Surfside Beach Vacation

One of the many perks of renting a beach vacation home is the full kitchen that comes along with it. Going out every night during vacation can become very costly, very quickly. Having a full kitchen helps cut down on restaurant costs and offers a way for the whole family to dine comfortable together. Here are three easy recipes for your Surfside Beach vacation.

Spaghetti & Meatballs

If you can boil water you’re already halfway done cooking this dinner! This dish is already a staple in nearly every home in America so why not bring it with you to the beach? All of the ingredients can be found at a local grocery store. The main focus is on the gravy and meatballs.

Here’s a mouthwatering Italian Meatballs recipe that’s perfect for topping any pasta of your choosing.

Tacos are quick, easy and delicious! You can also offer different meat fillers like beef, turkey or chicken so that everyone gets to choose exactly what they like. Not to mention, the kids will love building their own tacos.

Here’s a taco recipe that you can whip up in just 15 minutes.

Grill out

Many of our vacation rentals come equipped with an outdoor grill which means you can enjoy your favorite ribs, hotdogs and burgers even while you’re on vacation. With so many delicious recipes for grilling out, you’re likely to find yourself grilling out multiple nights during your vacation.

Here are some quick and easy recipes that you can grill up for the family.

10 Popular Activities in Myrtle Beach, SC

Myrtle Beach has become one of the top destinations in the U.S. for family vacations and enjoying a little fun in the sun. When planning your next vacation, keep in mind these top 10 popular activities to do in Myrtle Beach, SC.

1. Stroll around Broadway at the Beach.
Broadway at the Beach offers some great shopping, dining, entertainment and attractions making it the perfect spot for everyone in the family to enjoy.

2. Dine at a waterfront restaurant.
While in Myrtle Beach, dining at a few waterfront restaurants is a must. To get the best view and seating, make reservations in advance for sunset. We recommend checking out The Gulfstream Cafe, Sea Captain’s House and Filet’s on the Water.

3. Late night mini golf.
During peak months, many of Myrtle Beach’s attractions stay open late which means you’ll still find families playing mini golf even at 10pm.

4. Play some arcade games.
A little fun, friendly competition is a great way to end the day and arcades offer a little something for everyone. We recommend stopping by the Garden City Pavilion and the Fun Plaza Arcade.

5. Walk along Ocean Boulevard and the Boardwalk.
There’s nothing like joining the crowds of people walking along Ocean Boulevard or the Boardwalk. Ice cream, candy, attractions and unique gift shops await!

6. Take a ride on the Myrtle Beach Skywheel.
Seeing the ocean from high atop the Myrtle Beach Skywheel is a sight you won’t easily forget. It’s a must-do activity on any Myrtle Beach trip.

7. Spend a day at a water park.
Water parks are a great break from the beach while still offering a respite from the heat. There are quite a few water parks spread throughout Myrtle Beach so it’s not hard to find one that’s perfect for your family!

8. Go ziplining.
Ziplining may seem like something you can only do in far off, exotic places, but Myrtle Beach actually has a few different zipline companies that let you see the area from a different perspective. For example, Go Ape Zip Line & Treetop Adventure offers zipline adventures through the treetops of North Myrtle Beach while Soar + Explore Zip Line & Rope Course lets your drift high above Broadway at the Beach and Myrtle Beach Zipline Adventures lets you fly through the sky just feet from the beach.

9. See a variety show.
Myrtle Beach is scattered with some great theatres that offer family friendly variety shows. We recommend checking out Alabama Theatre and Legends in Concert.

10. Take a sunset beach walk.
While spending the day at the beach is one of the most popular activities to do when visiting Myrtle Beach, don’t just pack up when you the sun starts to go down. Stay a little longer, walk the beach and take in the amazing sky as the sunsets. It will be a memory that will last a lifetime!

What to Think About When Planning a Spring Break Beach Vacation

Spring is just a few weeks away and soon tourists will flock to the beach to soak up the sun and relax by the ocean. So, if you’re ready to escape winter and wanting to spend your spring break in Myrtle Beach, it’s time to start planning! Here’s what to think about when planning a Spring Break beach vacation.

Who’s going?

You’ll want a set number of who will be joining you on the trip because this is essential to deciding where to stay. If you’re joined by just a few friends, a hotel room might suffice. However, if you’re going with a larger group a beach rental is the best option. Additionally, with a large group you’ll want to check to see if everyone is comfortable sharing a room or if some in your group would prefer their own room.

Pro tip: use our advanced search option to view rentals around Myrtle Beach, SC with the exact number of bedrooms you need.

Are you bringing your pets?

If you have pets, you may be considering bringing them with you. This could be fun, but it could also end up making you have to alter your plans. For example, your dog won’t be able to stay alone for long which means you’ll either have to enjoy only the activities that your dog can enjoy too or you’ll have to plan your day around going back to your rental to walk and play with your dog.

Pro tip: if you decide to take your dog with you, use our search by amenities option to view pet-friendly rentals near Myrtle Beach.

Will you be driving or flying?

If you’re flying, you may prefer to save on the cost of a rental car by staying in a central location that will allow you to walk to nearby activities, restaurants and shops. If you’re driving, this can offer you more options as far as location and ultimately, by not being in the town’s central hotspot, you can save a small amount of money on your rental or hotel.

Do you want to save money by staying somewhere off the beach or are you comfortable with splurging in order to be oceanfront?

You can truly save a good amount of money by staying in a rental that’s just off of the beach, so if you’re trying to plan a Myrtle Beach spring break vacation on a budget this is your best option. If you’re not concerned with your budget and are more concerned with spending spring break with the ocean just outside your backdoor, spend a little extra for an oceanfront rental.

Pro tip: you can use our advanced search option to find rentals that are located oceanfront as well as those that are a few rows away, but still just a walk to the beach.

These are just a few of the of the top things to consider when planning a spring break vacation, but the number one priority is simply planning early! Waiting until the last minute will leave you stressed and paying far more for far less.

4 Reasons to Rent a Beach House for Your Next Beach Vacation


Beach vacations are always a blast. Sand, sun and family time. What could be better? Booking a beach rental can upgrade your beach vacation from an 8 to an outstanding 10!

Sometimes the beach can tire you out, especially if you have children.

Spend too much time at the beach during the day and you just might find that the sun can become overbearing and the sand can become a nuisance. Having a beach rental can solve all of this!

Instead of spending hours upon hours at the beach, you can spread it out and go periodically throughout the day. This means you can go to the beach for a few hours in the morning, walk the rental for lunch, relax, head back out and then finish the day floating the pool!


Everyone gets their own space.

Having a beach rental also means everyone can have their own space which is especially great for babies and kids. Family time is great, but sometimes everyone needs a little time to do their own thing whether this is read a book, watch TV or play. This keeps moods in check and makes family time that much better!

Cut down on meal expenses.

If you have a large family, going out to eat during vacation can become expensive. Utilizing a beach rental means you have a full kitchen that you can utilize for breakfast, lunch and dinner, cutting vacation costs tremendously.

Enjoy your vacation as a family without the noisy distractions.

Beach vacations aren’t just for families which means in typical hotel scenarios, you can find yourself surrounded by college kids in the pool or noisy groups that make getting a good night’s sleep impossible. By getting a beach rental, you cut down on the distractions and spend more time fully enjoying your vacation as a family.


Make your beach vacation the best one yet and book your family a beach rental. If you have questions about which rental is best for you, reach out to our staff–we’d love to help you find the perfect fit!

Renting a Beach Home vs. a Hotel Room

When you’re traveling to vacation destinations like Surfside and Garden City Beaches, there are plenty of options for lodging and entertainment. If you really want to enjoy a relaxing vacation, consider the advantages of renting a beach house rather than staying in a hotel. If you are traveling with family, or planning to stay for more than a few days, a rental home is definitely the way to go. Our rental properties give you and your guests the space and amenities to spread out and make the most of your vacation. Tensions can run high in cramped hotel room, so why not give the family room to have fun! Our rental homes have anywhere from 2 – 10 bedrooms, and offer sleeping accommodations for large groups. Sharing a beach rental with extended family or friends is a great way to bond and make memories, all while sharing the affordable cost of the home!

Having separate bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, and comfortable living spaces and recreational areas make these properties feel like a home away from home. A 7 – 10 day vacation will fly by at one of our Seaside Rentals. Looking to stay longer than that? We offer long term rentals as well, which are great options if you want to spend a whole season at the beach. Invite friends and family in for the weekend and entertain on your private patio. What wouldn’t be possible in a hotel room is made easy on one of our rental homes.

Our properties also offer a wealth of amenities that will help to make your beach vacation a fun, relaxing time. Family dinners are easy and inexpensive with our fully equipped kitchens, grills, and wet bar areas. Book yourself a fishing charter and bring your catch home to put on the grill! Additions like TV and DVD players, pool tables, exterior hot tubs, and in ground pools also make for no-cost entertainment. Make a grocery trip upon arrival, bring a board game or deck of cards, and you should be content enough to spend most of your trip at your beach front rental! Imagine bringing the comforts of home with you to a fabulous beach location. Make this summer one to remember and start planning your trip today!
