Water, Water, Everywhere

As the name implies, Ocean Creek practically surrounds you with water. That theme carries through the grounds, with 13 water features in all.

Submerge yourself in the refreshing waters of the Beach Club swimming pool, offering scenic views of the ocean and surrounding dunes. Three Lodge Villa outdoor pools provide peace and quiet amid the wooded areas of the resort, while the pool at the Tennis Villa invites complete lounging and relaxation.

Guests staying in the North and South Towers have their own private pools encircled by palm trees for a true tropical flavor. The South Tower pool flows inside beneath a domed area, where you’ll also find an indoor hot tub. From the North Tower pool deck, you can see the ocean as well as the natural creek for which the resort is named.

For fun without the sun, head for the cool, clear waters of the centrally located indoor pool at the Lodges. It’s right next to the indoor whirlpool, where bubbling, healing waters melt your tensions away.

Bigtime Family Fun

It’s easy to understand why families flock to Ocean Creek every summer. This is the only oceanfront resort in Myrtle Beach stretching from Highway 17 to the ocean. The beach is wide and secluded, like having your own private getaway.

The property includes an abundance of boardwalks, nature trails and paths for walking, jogging and biking together. You’re likely to encounter herons, egrets, turtles and other wildlife along the pond or around the creek bridge.

During weekdays, the Ocean Creek Kids Club is in session. Designed for children ages 5 to 12, the Kids Club features different activities every day, including scavenger hunts, beach kickball, face painting, water balloon games, crafts, seashell searches, sand castle contests and much more. And kids of all ages love the oceanfront playground, complete with swings over the sand.

Good Sports

If your vacation time means game on, Ocean Creek has you covered. Play a few friendly sets at Ocean Creek’s full-service tennis center. You can sign up for a round-robin tournament with other guests, or take a private lesson from the resident tennis pro. There’s also oceanfront beach volleyball—a favorite activity among families and groups of friends. The golfers in your group can work on shaving strokes off their short game by practicing on our on-site putting green.

Shopping, Dining, Entertainment

When it’s time to explore, you don’t have to go far to find something special. With just a three-minute walk, you can be at Barefoot Landing —one of the most popular shopping, dining and entertainment destinations on the East Coast.

The whole family will love strolling the outdoor setting and checking out the huge variety of shops, which include eclectic gift boutiques, popular national retailers, beach-themed general stores, jewelry and lots more.

For dining and drinks, you’ll find choices at Barefoot Landing to please every palate. Try Lucy Buffett’s Lulu’s (yes, it’s Jimmy’s sister), the House of Blues with live music and fresh seafood from the Flying Fish Public Market and Grill. For dessert, satisfy your sweet tooth in one of several candy stores and ice cream shops.

If you feel like taking a walk on the wild side, do not miss Alligator Adventure—one of the largest facilities for reptile life in the world. Don’t let the name fool you: Alligator Adventure also houses exotic birds, monkeys, tortoises and hyenas, among other species. Then there’s T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station, where you can get up close and personal with cubs, large cats and a monkey or two.

Delectable Dining

Start each day at Ocean Creek’s Four Seasons Restaurant with a full southern breakfast buffet featuring fresh pancakes, waffles, eggs, sausage and bacon, homemade hash browns, hot coffee, juice—the works.

For lunch and dinner, head to the Beach Club Bar and Grill. Their specialty? Mouthwatering burgers, grilled chicken, tasty appetizers and frozen tropical drinks (with and without alcohol). The Beach Club hosts special fish fries, cookouts, taco nights and live music throughout the summer. It’s also one of the best spots to watch the sunset at North Myrtle Beach.

5 Reasons Why Vacation Rentals Beat Hotels

You may confront a bit of a dilemma as you start planning your next Myrtle Beach vacation: Should you book a vacation rental property or a hotel? The answer, however, is simple when you consider cost, amenities and the space you can only get from vacation rentals.

To assure you that vacation rentals are the way to go, we’ve assembled five big reasons why it’s smart to choose vacation rentals for your Myrtle Beach getaway.

Reason #1 to book a vacation rental: The cost.

Multi-Family Vacations

Booking a private vacation rental home using a property management company means more transparent pricing. You won’t get charged hidden fees depending on the amenities you use, so the price you pay doesn’t budge from the start.

If you’re traveling with a large group, it can get rather expensive to reserve several hotel rooms. By choosing a vacation rental home, you can involve more families, share the expenses and save money you can apply to future vacations!

Meals are the largest expense during a vacation. Having the option to cook your own meals in a vacation rental property relieves a huge burden from your budget. Recruit the whole family to help with dinner and visit Myrtle Beach restaurants only when you want to.

Reason #2 to book a vacation rental: Total flexibility.

Operating according to tight schedules is a good way to turn your perfect vacation into a drag. If you’re staying in a hotel, you can expect orchestrating your day around room service, the long lines for a mediocre breakfast and inconvenient pool hours.

A vacation home, meanwhile, gives you the freedom to sleep in, treat yourself to hearty meals at any time, and go for a late-night dip in the pool if you’d like. That’s vacation time.

Plus, vacation rentals in Myrtle Beach offer flexible periods of stay, whether you’re in town for a few nights or a few weeks.

Reason #3 to book a vacation rental: More space.

Vacation rental homes typically run about 2,000 square feet, while a hotel room is usually less than one quarter that size. In that small of a space, things can get pretty hectic with family members bickering over the bathroom or keeping everyone’s belongings separate. And who wants to sleep in a room with the person who snores?

At a rental property, family and friends can spend quality time in shared spaces, then retreat to bedrooms when you need a little breathing room.

Reason #4 to book a vacation rental: Better amenities.

These days, travelers want a balance of home-like conveniences with perks they can only get on vacation. These include:

• Fast (free) Wi-Fi connections
• Big kitchens
• Swimming pools, pool tables and hot tubs
• Free parking

You’re far more likely to find these amenities in vacation rentals.

Washing machines, coffee makers and driveways not only make life easier—they boost your comfort level. While these come as part of the package with most vacation rental properties, hotels tack on hidden fees for even the smallest conveniences like Internet access and movies. Find the perfect rental property with all your must-haves rather than settling for an impersonal hotel room for your family vacation.

Reason #5 to book a vacation rental: Tranquility.

Frequent guests of rental homes in Myrtle Beach relish the peace and privacy afforded by a place of their very own. It’s nice to enjoy a refreshing night’s sleep without loud guests coming and going down the hall in a busy hotel.

Are you in the market for a relaxing retreat? Or perhaps a fun-filled week of activities for the whole family? Enjoy both when you book a rental property. It’s the perfect choice no matter how you define vacation.
