Post-Tax Time Oceanfront Vacations

Taxes Done? Trade Your 1040 for SPF 40

Here’s an idea even your accountant would approve of: trade your primary residence for a sandcastle, and put the stress of tax time behind you with an oceanfront vacation.

Nothing is more relaxing than ocean waves and salt air, and we have great oceanfront properties that are a perfect way to reward yourself for getting your taxes done. (And if you’ve already received your refund, this is a great way to treat yourself.)

Bring that special someone, or invite all of your little deductions to come along. You’ll find a wide variety of vacation choices throughout Myrtle Beach, and we promise you won’t have to fill out any forms.

So put down that calculator, pick up your beach toys and reward yourself for a job well done. To deduct your tax-time stress, book online or speak with a Vacation Coordinator at (888) 404-3110.
