It's Summer in North Myrtle Beach, 2011

Sunshine, the roar of motorcycles, and a Saturday cook-out for our arriving guests officially welcomed our summer rental season today. Though stormy weather was forecasted for North Myrtle Beach, all we saw were sunny skies with high temperatures dancing around 85 degrees. Our hard work at preparing for our first cook-out paid off with a better-than-expected lunch crowd.

Our rental inventory is booked solid for this Memorial Day weekend, though we were able to accommodate a few last minute vacationers. We’re very happy to meet and great guests who came to North Myrtle Beach as far away as Ohio and Illinois.
