Merry Christmas From Our Family to Yours

With Christmas just a few days away we’d like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas this year. We hope you’ll have an enjoyable time whether you’ll be with family or spending it with friends. Many people travel over the holidays – some going far away while the lucky ones come here to stay in our North Myrtle Beach vacation homes. North Myrtle Beach vacation homesKids get pretty wound up this time of year, first in anticipation of Christmas and then afterwards with their presents, candy, and all that time off of school. Be sure to get them out on the beachfront to run off that excess energy. Walk it, bike it, or go for a run – turn it into a beachcombing search for the biggest and best seashell – or play a game of family volleyball. Anything that keeps them moving and out in the fresh air will ultimately calm them and help them sleep that night. And we all know when they sleep soundly, so do you. You can count on having everything you need when you stay in one of our North Myrtle Beach vacation homes. They are completely furnished and beautifully decorated, have separate sleeping arrangements just like at home, and fully equipped kitchens and dining areas. If you want to eat your meals out, letting someone else do all the cooking, there are over 1,800 restaurants in the area. But if you want to stay in occasionally you’ll appreciate the well appointed kitchen where you can eat breakfast in your pajamas and dinner in your swimsuit. Merry Christmas to everyone near and far!
