This three-bedroom, two-bathroom villa in North Myrtle Beach is a bit reminiscent of a mountain cabin -- in all the best ways. It's cozy, tucked beneath the shade of mature trees, and blessed with a soothing sense of tranquility.
Three comfortable bedrooms and two baths nicely accommodate eight people. There are two televisions and high speed Internet access. This is a pretty, well-appointed home in a well-established community. Staying here will leave you and yours wishing you lived here versus enjoying a short vacation. A full kitchen, including a dishwasher, makes appetizers, beach and poolside snacks, midnight noshing, breakfast, brunch and full-on gourmet meals a very achievable delight. Settle in with a plate of tapas and a cocktail on the balcony that overlooks the shared swimming pool and hot tub. Enjoy relaxed conversations as guests gather in the cozy living room. Any time of day or night, grab a towel and a beverage, and saunter to the beach; there is much fun to be had within walking distance. Rinse off the sand in the outdoor shower when you return, then drop your dirty towels by the washer and dryer.
On the Grand Strand, golf is a favorite pastime -- a terrific understatement. There are more than 100 golf courses in the area; the game ranks high among the Myrtle Beach area's charms -- neck and neck with wide, wonderful beaches. Also close by are live theatres, water parks and fishing charters, boat tours, museums and gardens and more restaurants than you could try in a month of Sundays. Stay as long as you can; you will need the time to fit in the fun. Then begin planning a return trip soon!
