Upside-The condo was spacious for 3 adult couples and it was comfortable have our own bedrooms/bathrooms.The master bat shower was spacious.The oceanview is FABULOUS with a nice balcony. The building is quiet and the elevators are fast.The beach was close, clean and wasn't crowded at all. Downside-the condo REALLY needs to be updated and deep cleaning done.The carpet is stained and the furniture is uncomfortable. We question the cleaning of the bedding in between guests based on the departure instructions. We had to buy our own pillows.The dryer is hit or miss on how well it dries clothes. 2 bathroom sinks had plug issues. The TV in one of the bedrooms is super small. WiFi is spotty. As for the property,the outdoor pool is not located in the sun and the hot tub was always occupied by young kids. We rented 3 umbrellas and 6 chairs from the city and had no place to store them. There was an alcove outside our unit but was told they needed to be kept inside. It would have been nice to have access to the storage clost.The workout room was a joke. It is very hard to see getting out of the garage, even with the mirror. As for the rental company,it would have been nice to have some starter supplies for at least the first day such as TP,soap,paper towels,etc. Our unit was not ready on time. We were not able to get in until 2 hours past check in. This is an honest review. There is no intention to complain about things. As a family,we enjoyed our stay. Would we stay in this unit again? Probably not unless it gets updated, then we definitely would.
Holly, glad you enjoyed the spacious unit, fabulous Oceanview, and speedy elevator. However we will take the Tv's size into consideration along with working diligently on the other matters you mentioned. We want to remind you that these are vacation units that are used all summer and they may have a few minor bumps and bruises but we pride ourselves on cleanliness, customer services and overall great property conditions. Thank you again for your feedback.

This place... I can't say enough good things about it! The location was perfectly placed in the upscale area of N.Myrtle Beach.The Beach wasn't crowded in spite of an event & it's only a few miles from Barefoot Landing. The condo was nicely decorated & there was plenty of room inside & the balcony was very spacious. My ONLY complaint would be that the blankets in top of the closet were not clean in a couple of the rooms & many surfaces throughout the condo were dusty enough to write your name in. I mentioned it to management when checking out & they thanked me & seemed eager to rectify the problem. Tyrone, the on-call person of the management team, came right over when I had a problem connecting to wifi (bc they switched providers). I had work that needed to be done before returning home & he didn't hesitate to take care of the problem. Overall, I would highly recommend this vacation home.
Thank you so much for staying with us and for completing our survey. If you had only told us that you had some cleaning issues when you call about the internet, we would have sent someone out to address any issues. We hop0e that you will come and stay with us again. maybe when you don't have to work :)

We stayed for 5 days in October 2021 and found Unit 1002 to be simply fantastic. The Unit was very clean, well-appointed, well-stocked in all respects (even with beach chairs and beach toys for the children, games and books), bright and cheerful, and simply excellent in all respects. The views of the beach from multiple rooms and the great balcony were excellent, and we noticed a brand new table on the balcony. We would all highly recommend this unit and believe it was a great value for the price we paid!The fewer units in North Shore Villas compared with other locations also was a big plus, as there was never any problem at any time obtaining a super spot on the beach. The pools, fitness room and wonderful landscaping and flowers really made you feel you were in a special getaway location!Restaurants, shops and entertainment were all minutes away! We will plan to go back very soon!
Hi, Louis. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at our lovely North Shore Villas 1002 property during your North Myrtle Beach vacation. We hope to welcome you back again in the near future. Take care and we'll see you soon!

We left early
Thank you so much Mr. Kassebaum for your review of our North Shore Villas #1002 property! I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay. If ever you get to your rental and it is not to your standards for any reason, whether it be housekeeping or maintenance related, we try to encourage guests to let us know. That way we can correct it immediately, and hold whoever is responsible, accountable. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know where we could improve, I just wish we would've been able to help earlier in your stay. I hope you consider booking with us again, and have a wonderful day!
By: John P. Trip Date: 12/30/2020
Overall we had a very good experience. There were a couple of issues that we were concerned about. #1- we were very disappointed that we could not use the pool area for the entire 3 months. Repair on railing was supposed to be completed in February and was never done. #2- the number of times we didn’t have water due to work being done.
Sorry to hear about the inconvenience of the pool area being shut down during your stay. Unfortunately, things out of our control can put a damper on a vacation, but we are glad to hear you still had a good experience. We hope to welcome you back for your next winter beach visit!
By: Trip Date: 09/13/2020
This condo really had it all. Extremely comfortable and lovely decor. Close to everything with a fantastic view. Will definitely stay again
By: David N. Trip Date: 06/06/2021
The location, building and grounds were very well maintained. A bit disappointed in the unit. Would definitely go back to this location, maybe in a different unit. Great beach access - close to everything we wanted to do.
We thank you kindly for this review, David. Sorry that you were disappointed in the unit itself, any specifics on what we could do to make it better for guests?
Glad that the location was convenient and suited your needs.
By: Susan A. Trip Date: 04/07/2021
We were so happy with the condo and the owner direct rentals. Beautiful view from the balcony and steps to the sand!
Having a washer/dryer is a big plus for us. Plenty of room to enjoy family games, meals, etc.
Hi, Susan. We appreciate you leaving a nice review and are very happy to hear the condo at North Shore Villas suited your family vacation needs. We hope to see you again soon!
By: Trip Date: 07/24/2021
This property is surrounded by smaller properties, which made the beach way less crowded and enjoyable. The chair rental was in front of the very short walk to the beach. The property was clean and well maintained.
The room itself needs updated with modern appliances and new furniture. The 10th floor view was perfect, and the elevators were quick every time. The room wasn't ready until after 5:30pm which was a pain, but there are many good places to eat while waiting.
Hi, Dirk. We appreciate you taking time to leave your feedback on your recent stay with us. We are happy to hear you and your guests had an enjoyable stay at our North Shore Villas 1002 property. We do apologize for the check in delay as we try to accommodate our 4pm check in time, but of course want to be sure units are properly sanitized and cleaned prior to guest arrival. We thank you for staying with us and look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Take care.
By: Joan M. Trip Date: 07/31/2021
We really enjoyed our stay at North Shores Villa.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at our North Shore Villas 1002 unit, Joan. Come back and stay with us anytime!
By: Trip Date: 09/10/2021
We had a wonderful experience. Beautiful and well kept grounds. Elevator was never crowded or a problem. Beautiful view from the balcony with two tables for outside eating. Spacious and comfortable. Really liked that it had two king bedrooms and the third one had two queen beds. We stay here year after year.
Thank you kindly for your feedback on our North Shore Villas 1002 unit, Louis. We appreciate you taking time to provide us this information and are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Come back to visit with us anytime!
By: Lori M. Trip Date: 09/26/2021
Beautiful views from the balcony made me want to get up early to watch the sunrise. A lot to do in North Myrtle Beach made it unnecessary to go to the downtown area.
Hey Lori! Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with your feedback on your stay at our North Shore Villas #1002 property! We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Come back and visit us anytime, the sunrise misses you! Stay safe!
By: Jennifer M. Trip Date: 07/14/2018
Loved the location of this condo... away from elevator (but not too far!) and inside had a great layout with 2 rooms up front and the master in the back (with access to balcony and ocean views). Everyone had their own bathroom and there was plenty of seating for everyone including on the balcony! We had such a good time and the storage space in the condo was enormous! Thanks for the outside storage as well for beach supplies! Loved having a grocery cart as well as regular luggage racks to carry our stuff (Lord knows groceries don't work too well on luggage racks). Everything we needed to cook a few meals was supplied. Wonderful family vacation! Only thing disappointing was the "gym"... no free weights or universal machine.. bleh. I would love to have had a tiki bar on the pool deck area to complete the amenities here. Our first experience with "crabbing" (that's not what it's called) and we left our pails and flashlights for the next people to enjoy.. just look out the balcony at dusk if you're wondering what everyone is doing out there with their flashlights on the beach... free, silly, fun. (catch and release). Who knew??? We had fun each night doing that then getting in the lazy river/hot tub :)
Well thank you for sharing your high opinion of this condo and your family beach memories, too. The owner will be delighted that you appreciated their efforts for a great hospitality suite!!! North Shore Villas is a beautiful, smaller property, so guests can avoid the crowds in the elevators and pools that comes with the highrises -- we will pass on your great recommendation for a "tiki bar"! Please share your kind recommendation with friends and family. It means a lot to us at ODVR and this condo owner. Hurry back!
By: John P. Trip Date: 12/29/2018
Our rental experience was excellent. Location was perfect and we were very pleased with condo
The only problem we had was with the only chair in the living room. It was very uncomfortable and difficult to get in and out of. The condo really needs a reclining chair to replace the chair that is there. All other condos that we have visited always have a comfortable reclining chair in the living room.
We are coming back next year and would like to see the addition of such a chair.
Thank you for the thoughtful and detailed review. The owner will certainly get your message and hopefully agree to your decor suggestion. They are always very hands-on with the upkeep of this condo and certainly glad that you are loyal repeat guests. The North Shore Villas is a wonderful smaller complex in the heart of Crescent Beach. Anything that you could desire on vacation is a 5 minute drive in any direction. The smaller size also means less crowded by the pool and elevators in the summer. Relaxation is the key word with this great condo. Thank you again for sharing your experience with other travelers.
By: Trip Date: 09/28/2018
We paid the most we had ever paid for a month's vacation at the beach and were in the worse condo we have ever stayed in. I'll describe a few of the problems. The microwave had the lower corner broken off and the control panel was shaky. Owner wouldn't replace-office said it was safe to use (I can only hope it was!) The washer would only wash 4 towels and 4 wash cloths at a time. Even worse the dryer took over 1 hour and 30 minutes to dry those 4 towels and wash cloths. I spent forever doing laundry for my vacation. The door had no chain lock or anything for extra security. Housekeeping walked in on us the second day without even knocking! Owner refused to put a simple chain or fold over lock--so any of their personnel could walk right in anytime. Furniture was dated and uncomfortable-We used our beach chairs in the living room. We loved the condo's location. Outside was beautiful. We spent alot of time on the balcony looking at the ocean.
Thank you for responding to our review process. We regret that you were unhappy with your accommodations and that is never our intention. The owner will certainly consider your concerns regarding the appliances and the furniture condition. When you called the office to ask about our cleaning staff's visit, we did follow up with the assigned housekeeper and she explained that you had met her at the door, just after she had knocked and announced her arrival, but she had not heard a response from anyone inside. We are sorry for this disturbance during your stay. Thank you again.
By: Randel T. Trip Date: 06/02/2018
Everything about our stay was wonderful! Location, beach, weather, and service. We couldn’t have picked a better place. Very clean rooms and the views were amazing. We will be back!
Well thank you for all of the high marks for this great property. We cannot really take credit for the good weather during your stay, but glad to read that it made your vacation with us about as perfect as you could ask for. ODVR takes great care to ensure that our guest have a pleasant experience from reserving just the right space for your family, to check-in and concierge services, to housekeeping and maintenance during your stay. We are glad to help. This North Shore Villas owner offers such a great condo that you will certainly feel like you are in a 5 star ocean front resort. The grounds are also beautifully landscaped. We hope you do return.
By: Trip Date: 09/07/2018
Lovely condo. Very nicely decorated. Right on the beach. Two outdoor dining tables and two King and two queen beds!!! Kuerig coffeemaker. This place was perfect. Will definitely rent again next year
By: Tammy W. Trip Date: 06/24/2018
We enjoyed living there for 5 nights and it feels like a home. I enjoyed the view, living room, kitchen, bedrooms, etc..
Thank you for leaving a great review!!! We at ODVR take great pride in getting things 100% and it seems like we did it this time. The owner will be just as pleased, too. This condo at North Shore Villas does include all of those thoughtful little extras that make your stay feel like home -- a wonderful beach home! The views are always better a little higher up, so you probably really enjoyed them from this 10th floor balcony. Hope you can stay even longer next time.
By: Andrea M. Trip Date: 05/25/2019
The condo was very roomy with really good sized bedrooms and a nice sized living area. It had everything we needed including extras such as beach chairs and toys for the kids. The smaller pool and lazy river were perfect for the children ranging from 6 to 9 but accommodating enough for adults to enjoy also. None of the public areas were ever too crowded to enjoy. We were particularly pleased that the beach areas did not get overcrowded. There was plenty of room to spread out with our chairs and umbrellas and everyone not be right up under each other. The proximity to the beach is wonderful with a quick elevator ride down and just a few steps past the pool. I highly recommend and would definitely stay here again. There are several restaurants and stores close by including a Kroger and a Walmart both within five minutes drive.
We are happy to hear your unit had everything you needed and more! Our owners put a lot of thought into what their guest may need to have an amazing vacation. We are looking forward to your next visit with us!
By: John P. Trip Date: 12/30/2019
We had a great time. This is the second year in our condo and it is a perfect place for us to stay. Returning next year.
Thank you for the kind words. We look forward to your return and the owner is delighted that this condo gives you that home away from home feeling. The North Shore Villas complex offers outstanding amenities and location that welcome every guest, winter or summer. We appreciate your repeat loyalty.
By: Melissa G. Trip Date: 05/18/2019
This place was perfect for our family. It was well kept, plenty of space and the pools were one of the best parts of our stay. Plenty for everyone at the Condo. We will definitely be staying here again.
Thank you for this great 5 out of 5 review! Happy you and your family enjoying the property and amenities on-site! Looking forward to your next visit!
By: Trip Date: 04/30/2019
This condo was in outstanding condition and had everything. The owner even provided beach chairs and beach toys for the children for our use. The beds were just excellent. I have stayed in many condos in North Myrtle but never one in which there were two king beds and two queen beds. The balcony had two different tables and plenty of seating for everyone staying in the unit. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, and even had a crock pot, a blender, and two different types of coffee makers including a Keurig. The pool. lazy river and jacuzzi were spotless and very enjoyable, and the location right on the sand was perfect, especially if you had young children who had to go back and forth from the beach for naps. No doubt we will try to get this condo for every future stay in North Myrtle!!!!
Thank you for this amazing and detailed review! Our owners truly make a point to make sure their units are perfect for their guests and create a "Home away from home" experience. We are so happy you enjoyed. Looking forward to your next stay.
By: Trip Date: 09/09/2019
This Unit was fantastic in all respects during our 10-day stay! It was very clean and comfortable. Our guests who stayed with us also loved it. Convenient to Main Street, restaurants of all types, golfing, Calabash NC and shopping. New microwave just installed. Many beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and beach toys for the children and noodles and body boards were all available for us. That was not the case in most of the other units in which we have stayed! Gets an A plus from us and our guests. Really great! Will come back
Thank you for leaving this great review! Super informative for future guests to enjoy as well! The owner takes the time to make sure the units are equipped with everything the guests may need. Looking forward to your next visit!
By: Jodi L. Trip Date: 05/29/2020
One of the best vacations we have had. Condo was very nice with beautiful beach views. Everything we needed was there. Will definitely stay there again.
By: Trip Date: 05/14/2020
Condo was in a perfect location. Ocean front. Large balcony with table. Inside was clean and very comfortable with everything you could possibly need. It was lovely. We would definitely rebook this condo again
By: Trip Date: 07/18/2020
Really enjoyed the family vacation. Beautiful Ocean views.
Thank you for the perfect score review!!! Short but sweet. Hope to see you again!
By: Trip Date: 07/25/2020
The location was perfect and the condo was a very nice size. The chair in the living room was a little wobbly.
Thank you for the outstanding review -- we will address the chair issue with the owner. Glad you had a nice stay and look forward to hearing you will be back.
By: Trip Date: 06/10/2017
Condo was perfect again this year...upgrades are fabulous. HOA personnel was seemed too busy fussing with renters & not busy enough cleaning the dirty pool area.. Outdoor areas dirty & I stepped over the same 3 pieces of trash the entire week until I picked them up on Friday.
Thank you for providing a rating and review of our condo and services. We're always glad to welcome back repeat renters - we know when you find a great listing that you love, you want to keep coming back! We hope we can welcome you back again for a third year and for many more years to come! Helping make wonderful family memories is part of our goal and the owner continues to upgrade the condo, keeping it at the top of it's class!

This condo has been completely updated. It has 2 king beds and 2 queen beds (very unusual and beneficial)and all new carpeting. It was very well-furnished and the appearance was beautiful. The views of the ocean from multiple locations inside and outside on the balcony were great. We ate all our meals on the multiple tables on the balcony. The three baths were in excellent condition and made for a comfortable stay for all. It is close to all the action on Main Street but the 10-block distance made it quiet and enjoyable. The small number of condos within many blocks made beach access easy and uncrowded. What a fantastic place-we will be back!!
Thank you for your PERFECT RATING! We would agree with you this is an OUTSTANDING property North Shore Villas #1002, you will never go wrong booking here. The views are amazing, the property is in wonderful condition, completely updated and this thoughtful owner has thought of everything that will make their guest have a memorable experience. Thank you again for staying with us and for taking the time to complete our survey and please come and join us again. Sincerely, Your Owner Direct Vacation Rentals Team.
By: Susan S. Trip Date: 08/13/2017
We stayed at North Shore Villas Unit #1002 the week of August 13th through the 20th. The unit was very clean and appeared to have new carpeting and was decorated nicely. It was very spacious with a large oceanfront balcony with plenty of patio furniture. The kitchen cabinets were well stocked with plates, cups, pots and pans, etc. Everything you could possibly need!
Location was great and close to shopping and restaurants. We were able to get to Barefoot Landings in about 10 minutes and Broadway at the Beach within 20 minutes or so.
Beachfront was not crowded either since this is not one of those huge oceanfront resorts. Nice pool area plus a lazy river. And the weather was absolutely gorgeous the entire week! Just a few late afternoon showers but nothing interfered with our beach time.
This is the first time we have rented from Owner Direct Vacation Rentals and they were extremely helpful with the reservation process and throughout our stay. Amber and Tracy were both very friendly and professional. And we had absolutely no issues with our unit.
We have been vacationing in North Myrtle Beach for over 25 years. I would highly recommend Owner Direct Vacation Rentals. The unit was as promised, and everything went smoothly from the reservation process to picking up our keys and passes. We were checking in on a Sunday and our packet was ready for us to pick up when we arrived in the afternoon. Our unit was perfect and I would definitely consider renting it again in the future.
Wow, there is not much more I can say, Thank you. You are correct, this is a great property at North Shore Villas #1002, it does have everything you could possible need and then some. The owners of this property have thought of everything, they want you to enjoy their beautiful property, a home away from home. We will give Tracy and Amber a "Gold Star" and we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed them. We want to thank you again for staying with us, we appreciate it and we hope to see you again.

The condo was very clean. It was very well kept. It was beautiful. The view from the balcony was breath taking. The access to the beach was very convient. The managing company was very helpful and informative. The location was wonderfully centralized with access to all the local attractions. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your condo during our vacation. We would welcome the opportunity to stay in your condo again at anytime. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. Our family enjoyed south Carolina very much. Thank you. Gillette family.

This condo was very clean with a well equipped kitchen. I liked the location of this condo on the beach. My suggestion would be to book the condo directly through Owners Direct Vacation Rentals. VRBO will charge additional fees to go through them and ODVR does all the work. The people at ODVR did a great job.
Many thanks for the kudos. We do aim to give our guests a great vacation experience. This property is well situated in the heart of the Crescent Beach section of North Myrtle Beach, so just minutes to do anything and everything from restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, whether it's Main Street for BareFoot Landing. We are glad to offer the "service fee" savings to all guest that wish to book with us directly. We know you work hard for a vacation!!! Please make plans to come back to our great little beach town, sooner than later.
