Forget that this is also a time share! Revel in the beautiful in-door and out-door pools, the great club house, the barbecue area, the considerate maintenance and front desk staff,etc. We stayed there for 9 nights and had a beautiful view of the inland waterway, with big boats going up and down daily (very quietly).
It was so nice to cook one to two meals a day in the well appointed kitchen and save some calories and some money. We went on a pretty major shopping trip to the nearby Super-Walmart on the first day and it was perfect. We also used Amazon.com ahead of time to ship things that we did not want to bring with us on the plane. We didn't want to spend a lot of time or money there shopping for bulky, or hard to find items (like a boogie board, a beach umbrella and a cooler bag to name a few).
The washer and dryer were great to have; they really helped cut down on the amount of clothes we needed to bring. My husband flew in the day after I did, so I traveled from California with two small kids. We had one carry on and all carried backpacks. My husband checked one bag, and that was it for our family.
If we didn't have so many other destinations on our "bucket list" we'd go back in a heart beat. But, with our budget, and the reality of travel with small kids, one MAJOR (read:cross country or overseas) trip every two years or so is about our max.
We couldn't believe Myrtle Beach isn't marketed to us folks from California. There were people there from all over the country, and all over the world, and it is so great for a family. So many choices of activities. We blended hanging out on the beach, with an Aquarium visit, a Pirate voyage, a Pirate dinner theater, time at the lazy river and our pool, Octoberfest, the Statue garden, trying all the different restaurants, clams that we cooked at the resort fresh from the fish shop, Wonderworks, etc. So FUN!!!
