Book Direct & Save on Your North Myrtle Beach Vacation Today

Are you and your family planning a vacation to the North Myrtle Beach area this year? We need to tell you why you should #bookdirect with us if you are. Many online third-party vacation rental sites can add a 5%-20% additional fee to your reservation. We know that your vacations are significant and may limit how much you can spend each year. We at North Beach Vacations wants to make sure that you get the most out of your money when visiting the beach. The only way that you’ll be able to enjoy your vacation without getting hit with that unexpected fee is by booking direct today!

What is #BookDirect Day?

On February 2nd, 2022, we celebrate the 5th Annual Book Direct Day, which was created to help educate vacation rental guests on the benefits of booking directly through an owner or Property Management Company vs. using a Third-Party agency such as Airbnb, HomeAway, VBRO & TripAdvisor.

While you may recognize these big-name companies and their gimmicks in helping you save money, you will soon learn that they will charge you a fee for using their website. Who wants to pay extra just to try and save a little money? Some of the expenses that you may incur when you book with an OTA (Online Travel Agent) can range from 5%-20% of the total cost of your vacation rental, which in turn can cost you thousands of dollars extra depending on which rental you choose.

Why You Should Book Direct vs. an OTA?

When you book direct with North Beach Vacations, you will not only speak with one of our vacation specialists who are local to area and can give you the best information you’d need. We know all the details on each property because we have personally been to them. We can provide you with our recommendations on where to dine, play, shop, and visit businesses in the area. Our office is conveniently in North Myrtle Beach, so if any problems arise while you’re on vacation, we’re here to help.

Escape the Winter Months with a Long-Term Rental in North Myrtle Beach

It’s hard to believe that winter will be here in just a few short months, and many don’t like to live in the cold. Instead of staying home where you could experience the cold, snow, and ice, why not stay in a Long-Term Rental in Myrtle Beach. We at North Beach Realty wanted to share why it’s a good idea to spend winter in the area to escape the cold below.

Weather

Sunrise early red ski beach water

We understand that spending time in the cold all winter long can be a downer and, for many, causes seasonal depression. Instead of dealing with the cold this winter, you could be enjoying the more excellent weather here on the Grand Strand. You’ll often find that the highs during the days are around 70 degrees, and at night it can get down in the ’50s. Even though it might not be summer, you’ll still be able to enjoy spending your days on the beach, but you may not want to swim in the water as the temps can get quite chilly.

Shopping

Shopping is another reason that many families love staying in North Myrtle Beach during the off-season. While shopping during the warmer months can be fantastic, the winter months still have a great selection as well. Not only will you have access to Barefoot Landing, but you’ll also have options to the two Tanger Outlets in the area and Broadway at the Beach. No matter what you’re looking for, we can guarantee you that North Myrtle Beach has it.

While there are many other options that you can choose from to help make your stay in the North Myrtle Beach area better, we wanted to share these with you. If you are ready to stay in the area a little longer this winter, give us a call today. We can’t wait to hear why you’ve decided to stay in North Myrtle Beach this year!

Getaway to Myrtle Beach this Labor Day Weekend

Are you looking to sneak away to the beach this Labor Day weekend? If the answer is yes, allow us to share a few things you can do in the area. Staying with us in our Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will keep you and your family close to the action. Let’s peek at what you and your family can do this Labor Day weekend on the Grand Strand.

Waterpark Days

One of the best things about taking a getaway to Myrtle Beach during the first weekend of September is the waterparks. The temps for the area are still in the 90’s, and it’s a great way that your family can connect. Head on over to Myrtle Waves, Wild Water & Waves, or Splashes Waterpark for the day. There is something for everyone in the family to get to do and enjoy, including a relaxing lazy river. Don’t end summer without heading to a waterpark in the Myrtle Beach area this Labor Day weekend.

Beach Day

Another great option you and your family can do this Labor Day weekend is to spend your time on the beach. Bring your umbrella, beach chairs, towels, coolers, book, sunglasses, and more, and relax for a bit. Let the kids play in the sand together making sandcastles or letting them find the biggest shell to take home. If you want to let them bring home a little sand from the beach to remember their trip, then be sure to pack a small jar or a Ziplock bag before you leave home. Think of all the new memories you can make while relaxing and enjoy your time in the sun.

There are many other fun things that you can do this Labor Day weekend, but we wanted to share these with you. Staying in one of our Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will allow your family to make new memories. We hope to see you and your family this Labor Day weekend as you relax and enjoy your time at the beach!

Summer vacations are here, and while the temperatures are rising, finding something to do for free may seem a little more complicated. We at North Beach Vacations want to share with you all three things that you can do for free this summer. Staying in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will allow you and your family to be able to be close to the excitement. Let’s look below at the three things you can do for free in North Myrtle Beach.

Vereen Memorial Gardens

A great place to start in the North Myrtle Beach area to enjoy some fresh air and a nice walk is at Vereen Memorial Gardens. This is located in Little River, which about a 15-minute drive from North Myrtle Beach, and admission is free.  Known by many locals as a hidden secret, it’s the perfect location to enjoy nature in the area. Vereen Memorial Gardens has several wooden boardwalks and trails that are easy and good for all ages. And we have to say that the view is perfect with a gazebo overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway.

Concert Series

Returning to the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex is the Sounds of Summer. This is a free event on the 3rd Friday of each month and will run through mid-September from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Another concert series happening this summer into fall is Music on Main, held at the Horseshoe on Main Street from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm every Thursday. Both of these events are free to attend and be sure to bring with you beach chairs so you can sit back and listen to the bands play.

Movies Under the Stars

Another event that is happening this year that many are excited about is Movies Under the Stars. Happening at Market Common every Friday night in July is where you’ll find movies being played. This event begins at dusk and is free to attend. Be sure to bring a blanket or beach chairs with you so the whole family can enjoy it.

While many other free things you can do for free in North Myrtle Beach, we wanted to share these with you. If you haven’t booked your next vacation to stay in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals, give us a call. We look forward to seeing you and your family soon!

Do you and your family have a vacation planned this summer to the Grand Strand? If you do, then allow us at North Beach Vacations to share with you a few things that recently opened up. Staying in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentals will keep you and your family close to the action. Let’s look below where you and the family can head to check out a few of the fun attractions that have recently opened up.

Funplex Amusement Park

One of the best things about summer vacations is getting to experience a new amusement park for many. The Funplex Myrtle Beach recently opened up on May 21st, 2021, and is filled with fun for everyone. Located at 1405 N. Ocean Blvd, it is where you will find this beach-themed amusement park. Some of the rides that you’ll get to experience are Hang 10 Silly Cups, Sunny Day Swings, and Up & Overboard. The Funplex also has a restaurant called Off-the-Coast Beach Bar & Grill that you can get your classic amusement park goodies from. Right now, the park is working on a reservation system, so be sure to plan your day out before just heading there immediately.

Did Someone Say Golf?

Myrtle Beach is known to many as a golfing capital, which is one reason a new course has opened up. The Aero Club Short Course recently opened up, and it’s not your typical golf course. This course is perfect for families or beginners who are looking to get a start in the game. It offers shorter holes which means that you will have less time searching for those lost golf balls and will ensure a quicker round of golf. If you’re wondering why this golf course is named “The Aero Club,” it’s a tribute to the Air Force Base that was here before. The course offers fun music, LED lights to help illuminate the courses for a fun game or two at night. Think of the new memories you can make playing a round of golf with the family!

While other fun new attractions have opened up on the Grand Strand, we wanted to share these with you. Book your summer vacation in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation rentalstoday. We can’t wait to see you and your family this summer!
