Shopping for North Myrtle Beach Vacation Rentals

If you've been to the Myrtle Beach area before, you know you have a few choices when it comes to choosing a place to stay. There are so many hotels, resorts, condos, and vacation houses to choose from it can make your head spin! Shopping for a vacation rental does not have to be difficult. We've put together some helpful tips so you can go about shopping for your perfect vacation rental without the stress.

The best way to narrow down your choices is by answering two questions. The first one is easy: Do you want a house or condo? Houses are great for large groups and offer more privacy, but usually don’t offer lots of amenities like pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, or restaurants. The second question: Where do you want to stay? Myrtle Beach is a classic vacation town, and has much to offer. But many are finding it hard to navigate through all the vacation traffic, and families who want to be close to Myrtle Beach attractions come to North Myrtle Beach to skip the hassle. North Myrtle Beach is just minutes away from Myrtle Beach proper, and offers vacation rentals of equal or better quality. There’s also plenty to do without leaving town!

Let’s say you've narrowed down your choices and are browsing reviews and prices online. How do you trust that you’re getting the best value? Popular review sites can have conflicting reviews of the same condo complex, which can be confusing. Remember, most of the condos in North Myrtle Beach are privately owned residences and will differ greatly from each other, even in the same building. If you find a bad review online, pay attention to which rental company was used and avoid it. Your vacation rental is only as good as the rental company that manages it, so make sure you’re dealing with a trusted business.

Another important factor is price. A property can look attractive in online photos, but beware of low price points; you always get what you pay for. Vacationers often think they are getting a great condo at an unbelievable price – only to arrive and find out their place has been neglected or the rental company has terrible customer service. Cheaper isn't always better, so don’t shortchange yourself or your family on vacation. Spending a little more to ensure you get the best property is a choice you won’t regret and your family will thank you for.
