What Renters Like and Dislike About Myrtle Beach

Close to Market Common which is an upscale dining and shopping area. A mile from the ocean. Damon's restaurant on Ocean Boulevard is our favorite restaurant.

Although the fact that no matter what airplane background you are you will feel most comfortable in my neighborhood.

It's close to lots of restaurants and good shopping. It's a little like going back in time - wide streets, sidewalks everywhere, homes built in the 1950's.a

My neighborhood is fairly quiet. Stores are close. The location is central and pretty safe. The yards are mostly maintained.

They have really good bars/ restaurants nearby, walking distance. Has main attractions and events on the boardwalk, perfect bachelors spot!

Even though cops come down once a week it is actually generally quiet and it is conveniently placed. Near grocery stores, school, main attractions and a short 5 minute walk to the beach
