Drapes should be made of light and airy natural linen that wave in the imaginary ocean breeze. The neutrality of the linen becomes the perfect backdrop for the lively pillows and vibrantly painted ornaments. What’s that smell? Lastly, complete the ambience inherent to Myrtle Beach oceanfront condos with sea-inspired fragrances. Use a fragrant mist and strategically place aromatic candles and potpourri for a heady scent that will make everyone imagine waves lapping against the shore.

Letting go of a family home, especially one you’ve lived in from the birth of your first child ‘til the last one trooped off to college, is extremely difficult. Aside from having mountains of stuff to sort, there are the memories that flash in and out which you end up sorting as well.

When you go on vacation in North Myrtle Beach, the usual choice is to stay at a hotel. However, there are several reasons why renting private real estate would be a better idea.
For one, a vacation rental is cheaper than a hotel room, especially if you plan to stay for a long time.
