“Nice on the outside, Beware on the insdide”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We stayed at Wachesaw during the first week in October 2012 as an exchange for our Unit in NH. The Resort from the outside is lovely, the golf course is in great shape, the landscaping well done, main office is welcoming and modern. Indoor Pool area could use some updating but acceptable. Then you get into your Unit...the only positive thing I can say about it is that it was very spacious for a 2 bedroom. This place needs a severe facelift. Its unfortunate that I feel compelled to write this but as an interval member that has stayed in several exhange properties, this property really misses the mark. Not even comparable to any unit I have stayed in over the last 5 years. The furniture in the living room was bordering on thread bear, The rugs are stained, stains and damage exist on several walls in each room of the unit, pictures that were once on the walls are missing, chipped countertops, laundry units that take hours to dry your clothes, a tub that didnt drain (they came to fix after we called)...and on and on. If it is Managements job to check on the the ongoing maintenance and appearance of the Unit, they must be wearing a blindfold. And.... If 1C-2 is privately owned, it should not be rented until the neccessary updates and repairs are complete. I mean, even the Holiday Inn has flat screen TV's, this unit does not!!! On the upside, we had a great week weather wise and did not spend that much time in the Unit. The location is conveniently located near Brookgreen Gardens, Huntington Beach and Park, and lots of dining options. The staff is incredibly welcoming and helpful, its a shame that the condition of the unit detracts from their professionalism. We understood that we were staying a Phase I condo when we booked but the condition of our unit was absolutely unacceptable. If you have a timeshare and are considering an exchange for this property, stay away from Phase I.

Room Tip: Stay out of phase I unless you have been assured of recent updates to the units

Smelled horrible....old....disgusting furniture....small closet like door separating units which made for a noisy stay. Ceiling fans were dirty. Wouldn't walk around without shoes on insdide the units. Bathroom was small, old, could use a paint job and certainly could have been cleaner.
Not what you would expect from a Gold star rating.

My rating may be a bit overly harsh, but the more I stay in time shares, the higher my expectations are. The unit was a one bedroom and was well furnished. It had a screened in porch but we had to go outside and then enter the porch; there was not an entrance directly from the unit. We did not participate in any of the resort's activities. None of them interested us. We did listen to their sales spiel. Only afterwards did we realize that it was only for a $25 gift card. Once we said "No" they did not bother us. Check in and check out were easy and expeditious. At check in the representative volunteered the information that they had hang tag passes to Huntington State Beach, only a couple miles away. We ended up going over there almost every day. The beach was wide and clean. The water deepened very gradually, making it an ideal beach for families. There was plenty of parking. Murrell's Inlet is 5-10 miles south of Myrtle Beach. We drove to Myrtle Beach one rainy day and my wife and I discovered what we had suspected; Myrtle Beach is not our cup of tea. High rises line the ocean side of the main drag for miles on end. It reminds me of Virginia Beach and Ocean City MD. While many will like the "where it's at" atmosphere, we like a slower speed. The unheated resort pool was run-of-the-mill and actually chilly the day after the rain. Murrell's Inlet has many restaurants, with the emphasis on seafood, much of it fried. Our best experience was at a Japanese restaurant, whose name escapes me. We did not play golf, but supposedly the course attached to the resport is very nice. Overall the resort and the area met our expectations. Would we go back? Yes, for a lazy beach week and relaxation.

I had expected a working pool and hot tub and there were neither. The pool was cold and dirty and the hot tub wasn't hot.

This is a wonderful place to stay and visit the Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This is a Private Country Club with two bedroom cottages that may be rented for short or long term rental. As a guest you have access to the waterfront restaruant, pool, tennis and the Tom Fazio Golf course, which is probably the number one course in the Carolians, play it and you'll see why. They have passes to Huntington State Park, less than ten minutes your at one of the best beachs you will see in South Carolina. If you get to this area be sure to stop by and ask to see the rental cottages for next year vacation, you will be very impress with the Southern Hospitality. The golf course is closed on Mondays, but stop in at the pro shop and see if they will let you play at Sponsor rates. If you rent at the cottages you already have access. Go there web site at ... for information on getting there. This is a 5 star resort in my book it is hard to find since is located on the waterway.
