Don’t Rent More Than You Need if a 1BR Condo Rental Will Do

This is one of the most common mistakes new vacationers coming to the area experience. They’re so excited about scheduling a long overdue beach vacation that they book a condo that’s way bigger than what they really need. If you’re not finding the size condo you want where you’re looking, try a different company. Come to Grand Strand Resorts and take a look at the wide assortment of condos that we have.

North Myrtle Beach 1BR condo rentalsWe have a full inventory of North Myrtle Beach 1BR condo rentals as well as two and three bedroom units. You won’t have to settle for something more than you really need because, in the end, it’s your money. Don’t waste it on a company that can’t give you what you want at the price you’re willing to pay.

With Valentine’s Day approaching these North Myrtle Beach 1BR condo rentals are perfect for a get away weekend for the two of you. Reserve a place that comes with a swimming pool, hot tub, and Jacuzzi and you’ll be all set with plenty of water sports to enjoy before you ever get to the oceanfront!

How to choose the right North Myrtle Beach condo rentalsWhat and Where
Before you begin your search give a bit of thought to what you want. At Grand Strand Resorts we have both vacation condo rentals and vacation homes.

How Big or Small
The number of bedrooms in the condo rental you choose will depend on how many people are in your family or group you’re traveling with. All of our condos come well appointed with beautiful furnishings and are professionally decorated with beach décor. They all have well equipped kitchens, living and dining areas. Most of the condos have their own private balconies that make for a beautiful location to enjoy an early breakfast or an end of the day cocktail.

Amenities at our North Myrtle Beach condo rentalsThe Extras
There are any number of assorted amenities that come with every vacation rental. Rentals near golf courses will provide you with not just stunning fairway views but also the ability to play golf right outside your front door. Many of these resorts also have swimming pools, tennis courts, and clubhouses. Many of our other rentals have hot tubs and Jacuzzi’s, while some have water parks with lazy rivers that are truly something you must experience. Amenities vary with the rental so decide what’s important to you and then choose with that in mind.
