Frequently Asked Questions

Are linens included in the rental unit?

YES! Linen processing fees are required and are based on the number of bedrooms. 1br- $65, 2br: $75, 3br: $85, 4br: $95, 5br: $105, 6br: $115, 7br: $125, 8br: $145. Linens for the beds are included, including sheets, pillow cases, blankets and comforters. We also provide washcloths and towels for the bathrooms. We do NOT provide hand towels, dish towels, or beach towels.

What do you provide in the unit? (Linens, soaps, trash bags, etc)

Linens for the beds include sheets, pillow cases, blankets and comforters. We also provide washcloths and towels for the bathrooms, but not hand towels. Also, we do not provide kitchen towels or beach towels. Each unit has a starter of dish soap, toilet paper, garbage bags, and small hand soap. You are responsible for replenishing those throughout your stay.

Will I save money if I bring my own linens?

No — you may bring your own linens, but we cannot lower the rate if you choose to do so.

Can I check-in early?

As a general rule, no. We begin checking-in and giving keyes at 3 p.m. on the day of arrival, upon completion of housekeeping services. You CAN arrive after 12:30 p.m. to come to our office to fill out your paperwork, but we cannot release keys to you until housekeeping services have been completed, which is usually around 3 p.m.

Keep in mind, it is difficult for us to check on the status of your unit before 3 p.m. as well. We have over 250 condo units, all of which have to be cleaned on Saturday after 10 a.m. but before 3 p.m. We rely on our cleaners to provide us with "completion" status, but they are unable to give us "in progress" status due to time restrictions.

What do I have to do in my rental before I leave to check-out?

Not much at all! All we ask is that you take your garbage out and place it in the appropriate bins on the property and turn on the dishwasher with your dirty dishes before you leave. That's it! We'll take care of the rest. You don't need to strip your beds or put all your dirty towels in one spot. We're going to wash everything regardless. Of course though, make sure you have your keys back to us by 10 a.m. on checkout day.

If you are checking out after (or before) hours, you can drop your keys in any one of our dropboxes pictured below.

Do the units have internet access?

90% of our rental units do in the form of WIFI. Depending on the homeowner and the building property management, the networks are either secured and require a password, or unsecured and do not require a password. If the condo does have internet, we list it on the unit amenities list.

What is "second row?"

Second row refers to a condo or beach house located across the street from the ocean. For example, Malibu Pointe is a luxurious second row condo. All second row units are considered ocean view.

After I reserve and make a down payment, how should I handle my remaining final balance?

Final payment is due within 30 days prior to date of check-in (or 45 days if funds are from a Canadian bank account) and can be paid by personal check, cashiers check or Visa, MasterCard, Amex, or Discover. You are responsible for final payment. You can either give us a call or visit this page to make an online payment. (For the online payment, you must have your reservation number (provided to you through email or on the phone) and your last name. You may then enter your credit card information to pay your final balance.)

If the pending balance is NOT paid 30 days prior to arrival, the remaining balance will automatically be charged to the credit card we have on file.

I am confused about pricing, what is the final price I pay for a rental?

All the prices you see listed are the base price for the rentals. The final price depends on the number of bedrooms for the unit, the tax rate, processing fees, and other surcharges that may occur. For the final price, either give us a call, or the final price appears, itemized, before you make a booking online.

Please note that the rates listed on our website do NOT include any current discounts we are offering. All discounts and specials can only be applied to reservations by speaking with one of our reservationists.

Are the units equipped with irons, ironing boards, hairdryers?

Not as a rule; however, some owners do leave one in their unit—to be safe, though, plan on bringing your own.

Are BBQ grills provided?

Resorts may have a grill on the property, and some private beach homes have a grill provided. Please check the specific amenities listed for each rental.

What is departure maid service?

Departure maid service is the type of maid service who clean after you leave for your return home. You do not have to worry about heavily cleaning the unit/house before you leave. There are certain requirements we do ask of you, though, so please ask your reservationist. Departure maid service is included in our rental price.

What is the minimum age limit on your vacation rentals?

Our minimum rental age is 24. The reservation holder must be present during the duration of the stay and check-in at the office with a valid ID and credit card.

Do you have any Pet-Friendly Properties?

What is the difference between oceanfront and ocean view?

An ocean view condo or beach house is a rental unit that has a view of the ocean. The view may be from across the street (second row) or from your balcony that looks over the side of the building, rather than the front. An oceanfront rental unit is just how it sounds. You walk out onto your balcony or out the front door and you are looking directly at the beach. You can learn more about oceanfront Myrtle Beach condo rentals.
