About this listing
Comfortable, Convenient and Clean are just some of the adjectives to describe this 2 bedroom / 2 bath Non-Smoking condo that was renovated just last year in the kitchen, living room and master bathroom. The spacious 3rd floor balcony looks straight out over the wide Windy Hill beach and is the perfect place to sit with your significant other in the padded rocking chairs enjoying the gorgeous Atlantic sunrise. And when you're ready to get in the waves, the beach is just a quick walk down the steps and over the dunes. If the pool is more to your liking, Ocean Pier I has a beautiful oceanfront pool with plenty of lounge chairs and seating areas. After a fun-filled day of water play, satisfy your robust appetite at one of the hundreds of local restaurants of every cuisine and price range. In the evening, why not check out a show at the Alabama Theater just a mile and a half away or head 4 miles down the road to Tanger Outlets for some shopping or just stay home and watch a movie on the Blu-Ray player. Everything you could want in a beach vacation is convenient to this Windy Hill condo so you can make this trip as active or as laid back as you want!
Our condo features a fully equipped full size kitchen with a glass top stove, full size refrigerator, over-stove microwave, double sink with disposal, coffee maker, blender, toaster and all the pots, pans and dishes needed to cook and serve typical meals for up to 6 people. The kitchen is separated from the 4 person dining table by a breakfast bar that seats 2 more.
The living room has a very comfortable queen sleeper sofa and an entertainment center with a big screen TV connected to basic analog (Time Warner) cable and a Blu-Ray disc player.
The master bedroom has a king size bed with a private ocean front view, a private full bath (shower-only) and a large LCD TV that offers basic digital and analog cable and is also equipped with a Blu-Ray player.
The second bedroom has two twin beds and a child-safe wall mounted LCD TV with digital/analog cable service.
The in-condo washer/dryer is also a great convenience for washing beach towels and bathing suits at the end of the day. If you would like to avoid the hassle of bringing your own linens, we will be happy to provide them for a small fee of $25 (what our cleaning service charges us to wash them). The linens we provide includes 3 sets of sheets (1 king set for the MBR and 2 twin sets for the 2nd BR), 2 hand towels (1 for each bathroom), 8 bath towels and 8 wash cloths.
From June 1st to August 17th, we only accept weekly rentals that run from Saturday to Saturday.
Pricing shown already includes the 12% state and local taxes we must pay on every rental. Any host that isn't paying these taxes could have their property seized before you check-in so make sure you're comparing apples-to-apples for your own safety.
Please note, this condo is not handicap accessible. The view is beautiful, but it is on the 3rd floor and the building does not have elevators. Also, please bring your cell phone for emergencies because the condo does not have phone service. The cell signal in the condo is good to excellent for most national carriers and Verizon has recently added 4G service to the area.
Motorcycles and trailers are not allowed in the parking lot and will be towed by the homeowners association. Only condo owners are allowed to bring golf carts onto the property.

About the Host, Edward And Kathryn
Edward and Kathryn live in Durham, NC. Edward is a software engineering consultant and Kathryn is a manager at UNC Hospitals. We spent some of the most enjoyable days of our youth in North Myrtle Beach and many years ago I asked Kathryn to marry me while watching the moonrise over the ocean in NMB. Owning a place down there was a lifelong dream of ours that we were finally able to fulfill in 2005. We hope you enjoy our place as much as we have.
