90 - Efficiencies, 259 - 1 Bedroom, 263 - 2 Bedrooms, 315 - 3 Bedrooms, 69 - 4 Bedrooms, 26 - 5 Bedrooms, and 2 - 6 Bedrooms

If the building insurance is not included in the POA (Property Owner's Association) it will be a separate bill. If the real estate listing does not list everything the POA covers, ask your Realtor for a detailed list. HO6 insurance which covers the individual condo unit is also required by the majority of lenders. If you plan to purchase a condo that produces rental income you need to know that there are some condos in the Myrtle Beach area that only allow long-term rentals. Even if a condo building does allow short-term rentals the rental managment companies charge a fee. When you think about buying that oceanfront condo in the Myrtle Beach area you may have given some thought to the coastal Carolina’s weather.

The majority of oceanfront homes are not within neighborhoods and do not pay POA fees, but keep in mind that home owners are responsible for their homeowners insurance, wind and hail insurance, and flood insurance, trash pick-up and cable TV in addition to the standard expenses.

Condo Buying Secrets

Executive summary about a condo building by Michael Corbett

1. You're not just buying a condo, you're buying a building -- and you want to make sure that it is a healthy building. "I'm talking about financial health. Make sure you and your realtor review the condo building's financials," Corbett suggests.

2. The condo question you must ask before you buy: Has there been any discussion of possible future improvements, changes, renovations, or maintenance or any financial difficulties that would result in an assessment or charges to be leveraged against all condo owners?

3. Check out the parking before you buy a condo.

Beach Cove Resort

4800 S. Ocean Blvd
North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582

The magnificent All Oceanfront Beach Cove Resort of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is the perfect tropical retreat for your next beach getaway.


Wild beaches are beaches which do not have lifeguards, sometimes called undeclared, undeveloped beaches. Beaches often occur along coastal areas where wave or current action deposits and reworks sediments.

Although the seashore is most commonly associated with the word "beach", beaches are found by the sea and oceans. The sand deposit may extend well inland from the berm crest, where there may be evidence of one or more older crests resulting from very large storm waves and beyond the influence of the normal waves. At some point the influence of the waves on the material comprising the beach stops, and if the particles are small enough, winds shape the feature. Where wind is the force distributing the grains inland, the deposit behind the beach becomes a dune.

The beach profile is higher during the summer due to the gentle wave action during this season. The lower energy waves deposit sediment on the beach berm and dune, adding to the beach profile. Higher energy waves erode sediment from the beach berm and dune, and deposit it off shore, forming longshore bars. The removal of sediment from the beach berm and dune decreases the beach profile.

Beaches are the result of wave action by which waves or currents move sand or other loose sediments of which the beach is made as these particles are held in suspension. Constructive waves move material up the beach while destructive waves move the material down the beach. On sandy beaches, the backwash of the waves removes material forming a gently sloping beach. Cusps and horns form where incoming waves divide, depositing sand as horns and scouring out sand to form cusps. There are several beaches which are claimed to be the "World's longest", including Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, Praia do Cassino, Fraser Island beach, 90 Mile Beach in Australia and 90 Mile Beach in New Zealand, Troia-Sines Beach in Portugal and Long Beach, Washington.

The soothing qualities of a beach and the pleasant environment offered to the beachgoer are replicated in artificial beaches, such as "beach style" pools with zero-depth entry and wave pools that recreate the natural waves pounding upon a beach. Beach nourishment involves pumping sand onto beaches to improve their health, is common for major beach cities around the world; however the beaches that have been nourished can still appear quite natural and often many visitors are unaware of the works undertaken to support the health of the beach. Such beaches are often not recognized as artificial.

Some small animals burrow into the sand and feed on material deposited by the waves. Crabs, insects and shorebirds feed on these beach dwellers. Sea turtles also lay their eggs on ocean beaches. Seagrasses and other beach plants grow on undisturbed areas of the beach and dunes.

Ocean beaches are habitats with organisms adapted to salt spray, tidal overwash, and shifting sands. Some of these organisms are found only on beaches. Examples of these beach organisms in the southeast US include plants like sea oats, sea rocket, beach elder, beach morning glory aka Ipomoea pes-caprae, and beach peanut, and animals such as mole crabs aka Hippoidea, coquina clams aka Donax, ghost crabs, and white beach tiger beetles.

Executive summary about vacation condo rentals by Karen Schaler

If you're planning a vacation, renting a luxury condo instead of staying in a hotel can save you big bucks. Plus, you'll have more space to relax and enjoy your home away from home. Renting a vacation home is an especially smart choice if you're traveling with a group of friend. Here are 4 tips to help you get the biggest bang for your buck.

1. Choose a popular rental destination.

Some top locations in the United States for vacation rentals include: Arizona, California, Nevada, Florida, North and South Carolina, and Hawaii.

2. Comparison shop.

Now it's easier than ever to comparison shop when you're looking to save on a vacation home rental. Vacation home listings can be found in magazines, newspapers, online and through rental agencies and Realtors. Official area convention and visitor bureau Web sites can be another source of rental listings. Some individual rental owners advertise on rental directory sites, so you will deal directly with the unit’s owner. Other rental owners hire a management company to handle rentals and maintenance. Always compare notes before signing any paperwork.

3. Don't send money until you sign paperwork.

Get the rental agreement in writing. When renting a vacation home, never send anyone money until you've signed your rental paperwork. Read the fine print.
