Amazing house

February 23, 2015

This house was perfect, location is amazing. Shared house with some close friends and their family. We had a great time, alot of laughs and relaxation! Shopping close by, beach across the street and pool in backyard, what more could we ask for! House is well kept and up to date. Any issues, help was just a phone call away, not that we had any problems, just a simple question about the pool. Highly recommend house for a great family vacation. Owners are great, very pleasant to deal with and always responded to emails. We liked it so much we are going back again for 2 weeks.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

July 25, 2014

We had a wonderful week at La Vita Bella. From the moment you walk in, there is a very special, relaxed feeling. Penny was great - she answered all our questions. The location is ideal. My family said it was the best beach vacation yet!! I can't wait to go back.

Love the Pink House

July 23, 2014

La Vita Bella delivers it all! La Vita Bella means "Life is Beautiful" and that is just what your vacation will be in this beautiful, well maintained home! The owner, Penny was a joy to work with and she has thought of everything! The house was clean and very comfortable. The linen package was waiting for us when we arrived. The home is advertised as 59 steps to the beach, but it seemed much closer. It was an easy walk for a two and a three year old child. The location was perfect for a family and very close to Myrtle Beach attractions. I highly recommend this home and know that Life will be Beautiful at La Vita Bella!

And we LOVE guests like you folks ~ Thank you & hope to 'sea' you again at La Vita Bella.

The Pink House

April 30, 2014

All of our favorite vacation memories happen at La Vita Bella, although all of the kids just call it, "The Pink House". We are repeat vacationers, having been there 3 times and looking forward to going again next summer. There is plenty of room for our 3 families (6 adults and 6 children) and it is the PERFECT location. Technically not "oceanfront" so the price is more reasonable, but close enough that you don't need to wear flip flops on the walk. It's so close that if you need to run back to the house for more Cheez-Its or sunscreen, you don't have to fight over who's making the trip! The house is decorated beautifully and the kitchen has everything you need. The pool is the perfect size and Penny has a pool cleaner come several times a week to insure that it stays sparkling. It is in full sun but has enough trees in the back yard that there are shady spots when you want them. We spend our mornings at the beach and then it's so nice to come back to the private pool for the afternoon. It's been especially great when we've had babies with us - baby can nap in the house and you don't have to miss all of the sun! We love the balconies, and spend most of our late afternoons on them, rocking in the rocking chairs, drinking boat drinks, listening to music, eating fresh shrimp from The Fishmonger and making memories. Surfside Beach itself is wonderful location. It's quiet, peaceful and lovely and if you want action, it's a quick drive to Myrtle Beach. The grandparents usually take the older kids up to the Boardwalk one day for some fun. They love riding the ferris wheel, getting ice cream and buying stuff they don't need. Finally, some recommendations - Fishmongers is the place for fresh seafood and has delicious take out fish sandwiches. We also LOVE River City Cafe and Valentino's. There is a pier right next to River City Cafe that has a great ice cream shop called Licks and a restaurant as well, but I don't recall the name. For pizza we like Dough Boys and Ultimate California Pizza. We vacation in other places (Hilton Head, Destin, Outer Banks, etc) because we can't always all go together, but every time we leave, we all agree, "It was great... but it wasn't The Pink House".

Penny Rudinger

Owner's reply:

Dear Konrad Family ~ I love your Momma!! Feel like I know you, although we have never met in person. Thank you for returning every other year to find LVB just how you want her. I appreciate your statement regarding vacations elsewhere - "It was great . . .but it wasn't The Pink House!" Maybe someday we shall cross paths, but I doubt it as where would you stay? Keep the laughs coming ~

Great family vacation

April 26, 2014

We enjoyed a family vacation at LVB - total of 11 adults and children. LVB is the best place to stay. Clean and well stocked with every household item you would ever need. Bed linens waiting for us upon arrival. Ample room for all. Short walk to the beach. Lovely, private pool for relaxing. I cannot think of a better place to vacation! Pack your swimsuit and beach towel and you'll be set for the week!

Penny Rudinger

Owner's reply:

I am pleased you found LVB clean & well stocked - just what we are going for. Thank you kindly ~ Hope to see ya'all again!
