Advice for your next Myrtle Beach vacation...

Congratulations! You booked your next vacation and it is to Myrtle Beach, SC. Now what? Here are some tips and advice for your vacation….

As we all know, vacations can be exciting and full of wonderful memories.

But sometimes we get to our location and don’t know what to expect or where to even find those fun activities. We asked around for some pieces of advice from people who live here and have vacationed here that they could provide to the rest of you out there.

Here is what they had to say:

Bring your sunscreen

It gets really hot here and the heat index can sometimes be unbearable, so make sure you not only bring your sunscreen but that you apply it frequently.  The beaches are beautiful and SO worth the sunshine, but nobody enjoys a sunburn.

Bring your bug spray

If there is one thing that we have here in Myrtle Beach, it is Mosquitos! Prevent any uncomfortable and itchy bites by bringing bug spray with you on your trip. Enjoy those beautiful sunsets without worrying about mosquitos ruining it.

Book a place right on the beach

This one is a no brainer. If you are coming for a beach vacation, you MUST have direct access to the beach to fulfill that dream vacation. By booking a place right on the beach, you can avoid having to drive and pay for parking to access the beach.

You must go see Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing

Both of these places have a lot of shopping and restaurants to enjoy while on vacation and the best part is that all of it is accessible in one spot! All you have to do is drive to that location and then you don’t have to worry about driving to find a place to eat, a place to shop, or even entertainment. It’s all right there!

Bring your tank top and shorts. It gets hot here at the beach, so bring a hat too

Make sure check the weather before packing! It gets really hot here and you don’t want to find yourself in a situation where you can’t dress appropriately for the weather. Plan to include some shorts, dresses, and tank tops in your wardrobe for your vacation.

Looking for something to do? Go visit Ripley’s Believe or Not on the boardwalk

While visiting the beach, the boardwalk should be a definite stop for you. Enjoy the views, shop a little, or even stop at Ripley’s Believe It or Not for some fun experiences for you and the kids.

Rent a car

There are a ton of fun things to do in Myrtle Beach but you will need a car to get around. Plus, if you have a car you can venture out to the other areas on the Grand Strand such as Market Commons, Pawleys Island, North Myrtle Beach, etc.

Take a dolphin cruise.

Looking to make your trip extra special? Book a dolphin cruise and enjoy the sensational views and rare sightings of the majestic dolphins in their natural habitat.

Rent a Jet Ski

Looking to add some adventure to your trip? Why not rent a jet ski and take on the water like a boss! Explore the water in a unique experience that is sure to get your heart racing and your adrenaline pumping.

Don’t forget to explore the shopping in Myrtle Beach

There are so many options for shopping here from beach ware to fancy frocks. This place surely has all your shopping needs. Check out Coastal Grand Mall, Tanger Outlets, and Market Commons while on your vacation to bring back home a piece of Myrtle Beach fashion.

We hope this list of advice and suggestions helps you on your next vacation to Myrtle Beach! Check back every two weeks for a new post and don’t forget to follow us on TikTok, Instagram, and like us on Facebook!

Why you should hire a property managment company...

Do you have a property that you have been renting out all on your own that has been time consuming and stressful? Do you wish that you could sit back and collect the money without having to put in the effort of taking care of the property? Well, it may be time to consider hiring a property management company.

You may ask, why do you need a property management company? Well, let us answer that question for you.

Let’s start with the obvious, hiring a property management company means they are there to manage your rental property. They take on all the responsibilities that go with renting out a property on a continuous basis. We take the workload off of you and put it on us. The goal of a property management company is to alleviate your stress and workload. The goal is simply to make your life easier.

There are so many things that a property management company does. Let’s list a few:

1.Provide routine maintenance

When your unit needs new blinds, change the lights, fix an appliance, or whatever issues arise, it is our job to take care of those for you. No need for you to rush out to your rental property and fix it because we do that for you! Any guest complaints about maintenance is also handled through us!

2.Provide housekeeping services

No need for you to stress about cleaning your rental property after each guest stay because we provide that service for you! We have a cleaning company that works solely with us to ensure that each of our properties are cleaned and disinfected on a routine basis and after each visit.

That means more money in your pocket!  It can be hard trying to market your own rental property and time consuming, so let us do that for you.

4. Provide 24 hour guest services

Remember that scenario we asked you to picture earlier in this article? Well with a property management company you will never have to talk to the guests. We offer 24 hour guest services and handle all issues that may arise throughout the guest stay.

5. Offer discounts and promotions

One benefit of having us as your rental property management company is that we have connections to other companies that offer discounts and promotions just for booking with us! This is an incentive to get your rental properties booked and provides the guests with many options for complimentary tickets and discounts for various local attractions.

6. Manage multiple channels for more visibility of your rental property

Have you ever heard of Booking.com or Airbnb? Well we manage your property on those channels to increase your rental’s visibility thus creating more bookings. We not only deal with visibility but we also handle the guest services side by having conversations with potential guests about their bookings.

7.Process payments and fees

Ever feel a bit uncomfortable about processing payments for your rental? Let us take on that responsibility for you! We will deal with the guests for you when it comes to payments, fees, refunds, etc. No need to stress yourself over this when we can take it on for you.
