“A Lazy Beach Week”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2008

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.
