Interaction with Guests
We interact plenty with guests. But if you wish for limited interaction that is respected. The common areas are upstairs living room and kitchen, but the downstairs is pretty much private. W&D is located on the bottom level as well.
Sharon and I love to travel, enjoy fine art and wine and are foodies. We also can fill you in on where to eat and what places to pass up. We are both History buffs (Sharon was a History major in undergrad) and we can talk at length about what the area has to offer "history wise".
Quiet neighborhood, surrounded by a masonry and iron fence, open gate and two large fountains. Only 25 homes in this community just off the Inlet and a few yards from the greenway/ bike and walking trail that runs from Murrells Inlet to Pawleys Island (Huntington Beach State Park & Brookgreen Gardens are on the way).

JP and Sharon were wonderful hosts and made us welcome from the time we arrived. The neighborhood where they live is absolutely beautiful and just exudes the atmosphere of the south. The room was beautiful and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting out back having our breakfast and sitting on the front porch enjoying the neighborhood. Runt the cat was truly enjoyable to play with and is extremely friendly. He helped us from missing out cats at home. The location is very close to the Murrells Inlet restaurants and is an easy drive to Huntington Beach State Park (a beautiful park) and Brookgreen Plantation. Also make sure you walk the river walk at Murrells Inlet.
We had a wonderful stay -- their private downstairs apartment is very comfortable. Our hosts were away on holiday at the time of our visit and they made all the necessary arrangements with a work colleague to meet and greet us and to answer any questions.
We wrote to JP and Sharon to let them know our stay was going very well -- they seem like wonderful people.
Our hosts made us feel very welcome, from the moment we arrived and all through our stay. The neighborhood is beautiful and accessible to all Murrells Inlet has to offer, great restaurants, beach, etc. Runt the cat is such a sweetie. We had plenty of privacy and enjoyed breakfast on the porch each morning. We also enjoyed our conversations with JP and Sharon and hope to return soon.
What a GREAT stay! JP & Sharon made us feel right at home. The accommodations were just as described and exceeded our expectations. Our hosts were engaging and helpful in providing information and recommendations. Nice morning chat over coffee on the porch made you feel like part of the family. The home is conveniently located to all major attractions in the Myrtle Beach area. Can't wait for our next visit.
JP & Sharon's home is a peaceful & beautiful place to stay. We had a quiet room downstairs and even our own mini fridge which came in handy. The neighboorhood is Conveniently located to restaurants, the marsh walk, and huntington beach state park. This was my first time using airbnb, Sharon and JP make great hosts and I'd highly recommend their home!
WOW! JP & Sharon's home is immaculately clean and very nicely decorated - the pictures do not do this place justice. I was so impressed with how tidy and modern everything was. There's a hammock out back, and a little mini fridge/freezer for you to use as well as access to laundry! Shower has great water pressure and there is a TV in the room as well as some magazines and wine glasses. We would have liked to stay longer - They were such a lovely family, so friendly and polite.
The room is on street level with a private entrance so you don't feel like you are disrupting anyone and can come and go as you please. We arrived quite a bit later than expected and Sharon was very understanding and patient (I hope we didn't mess up her plans for the day).
Murrells Inlet is a FANTASTIC area... we went to Wahoo's Fish House and they had live music and it was a blast! Place was packed for the holiday weekend. There's lots of other stuff in the area too... I would definitely return and hopefully I can bring my mom next time; she would love it as much as I did!!!!!! :)
This was our first experience with Airbnb. Enjoyed a very relaxing and peaceful stay. Grateful to our host JP and Sharon for making us feel welcomed. Loved Murrells Inlet and the things it had to offer. The food recommendations were a big help. Plan to return!
