We stayed here late August, and WE LOVED IT! It was our first time visiting the area, so Dave gave us a lot of information on places to go, and responded quickly to every question. Then we didn't need him at all, because there were no problems during our stay. The location of the house is excellent: one block to Sandy mart, 2 to the pool, 3 to the beach (still, the golf car is a great thing to have).
We cooked almost every meal in the house, whether in the kitchen or in the grill. I guess the house could be a bit small if you are 4 adults, but for a small family is just perfect.
The only thing that bothered us has nothing to do with Dave, but with the Ocean Lakes rules: when it rains, they not only close the outdoor pools, but the indoor one too! What's the point of even having and indoor pool then?
Anyways, GREAT experience, and we look forward to staying again in the future.
I would like let everyone know David is a very nice guy. We spent a weekend in his cottage. We recommend his cottage for future tourist. Especially for the community, it well deigned for having fun with the golf cart.
Furthermore, we broke his lamp during our stay, but David forgave us generously. Forgive my awkward English to express our appreciation towards David.
We greatly enjoyed our stay at David's cottage and Ocean Lakes! The cottage is very cute and happy! It is in a great location and you can easily walk to the beach.
David has added some thoughtful touches. I enjoyed using the Keurig every morning for a delicious cup of coffee and tea in the evening. The gas grill is very nice and the golf cart really came in handy for hauling all of the beach gear.
I could go on and on! We loved it! David is great!
We had a great time at Dave's beach cottage! Dave was very helpful, excellent communication from start to finish. The cottage was exactly as described and the location was perfect for quickly accessing the beach and local attractions. Within a very short walk there's a walk-up restaurant with fantastic soft-serve ice cream for the kids, a grocery store, and laundry mat. We really enjoyed the community where the cottage is located and the kids had a blast feeding the ducks, geese, and swan. The golf cart was put to good use everyday. Thank you!!
This cottage was truly adorable, even better than described. While Dave was unable to meet us, he stayed in contact the whole day. For a group of four, this place was a very nice getaway.
This place was quite cozy and nice. It was really easy to get the keys to the place and car pass for the car. David was very reaponsive with all the questions we had and left us towels and tissues even though listing said we have to arrange it on our own. Golf cart is a nice add on to roam around and also go to the beach. Since this place is in a private campground there is private beach which was awesome. I would definitly reccomend this place to anyone visiting Myrtle Beach.
House was clean and well-kept. Twin beds are both benches adjacent to the kitchen that convert to twin beds. Their cushions/mattress are firm. There were books, dvds and even a few board games for entertainment.
