Sweet Carolina - Perfect Surfside Oceanfront Location!

4 BR
4 Baths
Sleeps 9

Welcome to Sweet Carolina! Your vacation sunrises will never be more beautiful than from this balcony of this superb beach house.

Will your family or friends be coming from four directions? Would you prefer the privacy of a house, but don't need (or want to pay for) a huge beach house? This beautiful oceanfront home has just changed hands. It was a primary residence, so has not been offered on the rental market previously. There is parking space under the house, with a long driveway, providing room to park four cars. Golf carts, motorcycles and trailers are permitted here.

Inside, you and your family will enjoy comfortable living and dining space with an unobstructed beach and ocean view. There is a fully equipped kitchen with cookware, tableware, dishes, everything needed for meal preparation.

The master bedroom has a king size bed. The second bedroom has a queen and a twin bed and direct bathroom access. The third and fourth bedrooms have queen size beds. All of the bedrooms have TVs. One bedroom is on the first floor, the other three bedrooms are on the second floor.

Beds will be made when you arrive, kitchen and bath towels are provided.

Small dogs (30 lbs and under) may be considered with individual approval and $200 additional rent for the first dog and $100 each additional (if approved). Please contact/email for approval before reserving with pets. Pets are prohibited unless specifically approved in advance. Surfside Beach city ordinance prohibits dogs on the beach between May 1st and Labor Day between the hours of 9AM and 5PM.

Surfside Beach is perfect for a family vacation, away from the traffic and crowds, but still, a short drive to the wide variety of attractions, shopping, dining, and entertainment the Grand Strand has to offer, along with over 100 golf courses. The Surfside Beach pier, restaurants and shops are a few blocks north from Bella Alba. Water slides and amusement parks that kids love are right out on business 17. Luxury shopping and dining are a few minutes north in the Market Commons area. The Murrells Inlet "Restaurant Row" is the "Seafood Capital of South Carolina", it's a few minutes south. Just a short drive north are all the attractions, dining, shopping and nightlife of Myrtle Beach; Broadway at the Beach, Coastal Grand shopping center, the Myrtle Beach boardwalk, amusement parks, and one of the world's largest Ferris wheels. For a unique cultural experience, Brookgreen Gardens displays one of the world's largest collections of sculpture by American artists in a lush outdoor setting, along with a zoo and butterfly garden, it's just a few minutes south.

It's easy to see that you and your family will make oceanfront memories here at Sweet Carolina!

In most cases, no.  If you find beach chairs or other beach items in the property, you are welcome to use them.  However, most owners advise that their beach chairs were left on the beach too often.  
Pets are not permitted at many of our properties.  In most cases, HOA rules prohibited guests from bringing pets, even though owners are permitted to.  We have a few properties where we can consider allowing a small dog - NO cats.  The dog must be at least a year old, and weigh less than 30 pounds (two properties are limited to 20 pound dogs).  These are clearly marked "allows pets" and a non-refundable rent surcharge of $200 ($300 for two small dogs) is required.  Please contact us with information about your dog before booking a reservation - at which time we can approve your dog, add the animal surcharge to your reservation and collect said surcharge if you booked the property through a 3rd party affiliate.

 
Cancellation refunds are only made after (and if) the period is re-rented, less a $100 cancellation fee.  If you are concerned about needing to cancel please consider travel insurance; it covers cancellation for a wide range of reasons, along with many additional benefits.  
Our check-in time is 4pm at our office. Approval for a late check in will be granted in EXTREMELY RARE CIRCUMSTANCES. If one is granted, the renter must return to the check-in office the following day before 2pm to complete the check-in process.  This includes the renter showing ID to confirm identity and that he/she meets the minimum age requirement. There will be a $100 charge if this is not completed.

WiFi internet access is provided in all of our properties.  Security and connection speed vary widely.  The HOA systems typically do not require a password.  If you have important business or financial matters to transact, consider bringing a mobile WiFi connection device of your own.  Connection speeds may not be fast enough to support streaming movies, music or video games.  
Parking is limited at all oceanfront condominium complexes.  We can only provide the number of parking passes the HOA rules permit.  In most cases, no more than two parking passes can be provided.  We are limited to one parking pass per unit at Horizon East, Afterdeck, and for one and two bedroom units at Waters Edge.  

There aren't any free public parking lots near the beach.  Surfside Beach has some metered parking along Ocean Boulevard and some lots.  

The rental includes the parking passes available, but does not guarantee the availability of parking space.  Parking is managed by the property manager, we have no control over the parking lot or parking space.  
For violation of any of the proceeding rules, tenant and all other occupants will be evicted according to South Carolina law with forfeiture of all monies.  In addition, outside of Airbnb rules and restrictions, all guests agree to the iTrip Vacations Myrtle Beach South Rental Agreement.

Lovely Snowbird Stay
5/5 stars
Clean and updated home oceanside with cozy living space, four BD/BA, and convenient location. Highlights are two large bedrooms with equally great big ocean views and a fully fenced grassy area for doggie. Very clean, small but well-stocked kitchen, and good general upkeep.

Our second stay at Sweet Carolina and it was again perfect in every way ! Being able to bring my “girls” aka Minnie and Millie just makes it so much more enjoyable. We will be back, love this home , the 1st floor bedroom made it easy for my elderly mother to come along and enjoy a beach trip with us. Thanks Sweet Carolina, we will see you again!

The house needs a very good cleaning. The kitchen cabinets need to be wiped clean. The kitchen is not very well equipped. I think it needs more silverware and a couple of sharp knives. I couldn’t find an electric can opener and the manual one didn’t work very well. But the house worked out well for us. Thank you Kathy Hefner
- Kathy

Hey Kathy, Thank you for bringing this to our attention, although it was a shock as "Sweet Carolina" never has these issues and typically it's the total opposite! Regardless, we have addressed with the cleaner, and are revisiting the type of paint used on the cabinets, as well as doing an inventory of the kitchen supplies as unfortunately items "walk" :-( Again, thank you for your feedback, and we are thrilled you all had a wonderful time regardless! Take care~

This is a lovely beachfront home on Surfside Beach. Besides the wonderful view and steps to the sand proximity, the owner has taken every detail into account to make our stay in her home as wonderful as the outdoors. We already are anticipating our next trip to Sweet Carolina!

Accommodation's were very comfortable, very easy to find and the Ocean view very pleasing. Family Easter was a great success. Sand and Sun and a warm Ocean breeze. What more could you ask for.

Hi Terry...we are so thrilled that you all chose to spend your Easter holiday here and are glad that it was a success! And you are right - there's nothing better than sand between your toes and the ocean breeze, so please come back and visit us soon! Take care :-)

New Year's Eve at the beach

My family came together at Bella Alba to spend some time over the New Year holiday. The house was amazing!! It was nicely decorated, wonderful views of the ocean, comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. The kitchen was very well equipped and many wonderful family meals were made there. I would definitely recommend this property to someone looking for a great beach house.

Hey Barb - we are SO glad you had a great vacation. We love Bella Alba too and look forward to working with you again next year!!!!

One of the best vacations ever!
5/5 stars
My family and I have been vacationing at least once a year for 30+ years in the Myrtle Beach area, usually once in the spring and for the past half dozen years or so, also during the week of Christmas. We have stayed at many locations, usually high-rise condos. We love the Surfside/Garden City area. It's much quieter than downtown Myrtle and everything we enjoy is close by. This home is in the perfect location, with just a short, easy walk to the Surfside Pier. Just ten minutes to Murrell's Inlet, the Seafood Capital of the World, and dozens of amazing restaurants. Really, it's about 10 minutes or less to anything you could possibly need: gas stations, grocery stores, a large, newer Walmart. Market Common is maybe 15 minutes, depending on traffic. The location is fabulous. The house, itself, is just as impressive. We like to travel with our dogs and having direct access to a small backyard and to the beach was heaven! There is a lovely deck on the back that directly overlooks the ocean. Great views from the kitchen and dining room, as well as the upstairs bedrooms. The home is tastefully furnished and all electronics, TV, internet, etc., worked great. The home was spotless when we arrived with freshly laundered towels laid out for us and bedding already made. We just unpacked, kicked back, and relaxed. Kitchen was equipped well enough to make a small traditional Christmas dinner. The main floor bedroom was great for my older mother so she didn't have to negotiate stairs, leaving the upstairs almost as a separate apartment for me and my husband. I just cannot say enough good things about this beautiful home. Everything is pretty much as pictured, or better. No unpleasant surprises. Special thanks to the owner for opening his home to us. And a double special thanks for allowing dogs. It's difficult to find quality properties that allow pets. I'm afraid staying here has spoiled us and we will definitely be returning. I just don't think we'll be able to match the quick, friendly service, the perfect location, or the lovely accommodations that we lucked into with Bella Alba! Book now! You won't be sorry.
- Vicki

Vicki - I mean, you can't beat waking up to THAT view on Christmas morning, right!!! We are so glad to hear you had a great time and that the house was just as described. Please contact us for any of your future rental needs.

Very nice place
3/5 stars
Place is very nice and clean. Very convenient. Nice quiet area. But. 1 Day there were two young men here working on the property pounding and banging at 0830 in the morning. No information from owners that anyone was coming. Called about outdoor lighting not working until 2030 hrs which is fine for the summer months but it’s November. Two of the bedroom televisions were not working. Had call in for that as well and no response.
- Jim

Hey Jim - thanks for taking the time to leave your review!!! We have looked into the work that was being done and are SO sorry - that should have been completed the week before you arrived (when no tenants were there) and the owners were told the work HAD been completed - so we apologize for that inconvenience. The lighting situation has been taken care of - the key to the lock box (that controls the light timers) went missing - so we have replaced the lock box lock and all lights are functional and turning on at appropriate times:)

Had people at property today doing work. Had no idea they were coming. Pounding banging and grinding all day long. Had my poor dog going crazy. Woke my son up at 0900 which is way to early for a teenager. Called about outdoor lighting that does not come on until 2030 hrs which is good for summer months but its November. Place is very nice and clean and great location.

What a wonderful house and it was exactly as pictured and advertized. Bedrooms have the most comfortable beds and linens, plenty of towels and blankets. The Surfside Beach is groomed daily and you can hire the beach services of chairs and umbrellas so no need to drag them with you to the beach...it was a little pricey but don't go on vacation to save money, save money for vacation. Kitchen was very well equipped with mostly new stuff. We LOVED it and hated to leave, really felt like home. Had a small issue with the garbage disposal but they had it replaced right away. Wonderful vacation in a beautiful beach home.. highly recommend Bella Alba!
