“Beautiful house, plenty of room!”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2016

The house was absolutely beautiful! We rented the entire house and with four families and six kids we had more the enough beds for everyone! We were surprised that we were only given 2 keys to the house (all they had) and 2 access cards (though we could get more with a cash deposit). We were really excited about the game room for the kids, but it was lacking balls for ping pong, darts for the dart board, etc. We ended up purchasing some of this due to inclement weather during our stay. I would definitely recommend this property and would certainly rent again if we choose that area for another family reunion!

Just arrived at Out of The Blue at Oceanside Village Surfside Beach S.C. this is our first visit and what a wonderful place, so spacious and spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Steve & Gwen did a wonderful job of decorating the unit everything was well thought out. Located in a nice location convenient to shopping and the beach. Very very nice I don't see how anyone that stays here could leave without having a great time.

Review Submitted March 10, 2012 Date of Stay February 11, 2012
My wife and I just recently spent three weeks in Myrtle Beach (Surfside Beach) at "Out of the Blue". We were very much pleased with the unit. The unit was a beautiful unit in a quiet community that was very convenient to shopping,entertainment,dining,golf and just 3 minutes from the beach via golf cart which was included in the rental of the unit. "Out of the Blue" was very very clean and very spacious and nicely equipped with nice furnishings with a beachy flair. The king sized bed was very comfortable I slept better in it than my bed at home. We had a great time on our winter getaway and would recommend this to our friends. It was very apparent that the owners Steve & Gwen made every effort to ensure that their guests would have an enjoyable stay.

My family and I, my parents, and my sister's family spent a week in "Out of the Blue" as a mini family reunion. From the moment we pulled into the driveway up until the final few minutes before we departed our expectations were completely met. This property is so much more than just a place to "stay". We saved a ton of money and had a lot of fun by taking turns making dinner each night and we alternated between eating upstairs and downstairs. There was plenty of room for all 12 of us and then some!! The kids had a blast in the game room, riding the bikes to the beach and the pools, and we all loved the golf carts--even Grammy had a chance to drive it. We sat out on the front porch every night and if you listen closely you can even hear the waves. The location of this property was perfect for us--20 minutes to the mall where we ended up spending a few afternoons, 45 minutes to horseback riding on the beach, and a 24 hour grocery store right across the street. You really can't get much better than that!! My daughter turned 18 on the day we arrived and to our surprise the owners even took the time to put up a few decorations for her--WOW!!! I could go on and on about all this house has to offer but I think you should experience it for yourselves! If you were like I was before I found this property--searching for hours on end for the most perfect place--look no further. STOP RIGHT HERE AND MAKE THAT RESERVATION....You will be pleasantly surprised and will go home with memories of a lifetime. :)

What a vacation!

We just returned from a great week in Myrtle Beach! Staying at "Out of the Blue" was so much fun! The perks are by far the nicest/best we've ever received at a rental property! The Owners are excellent homeowners and hosts! We will definitely return to this home for a future vacation.

This place is all you see in the photos and more! We were 3 families with 2 teens each (6 total) and we all fit very comfortably! We always had something to do: xbox upstairs, billiards/darts in garage, board games, or the beach! The kitchen is well equipped and we had lovely bbq's on the patio. The golf carts are convenient and having 2 made it easy to share! The owners clearly put care and thought into their guests' stay at the home by providing all you need: beach towels, chairs, umbrella, cooler, & magazines. We definitely will return when we are in Myrtle Beach.

This house is so gorgeous and the beach feel to it is so relaxing. Our whole family (all 14 of us) stayed in this home so comfortably. The owners have provided all the little extras that make it so enjoyable. You lack for nothing to experience a great vacation here. The Coastal Master Suite and deluxe bathroom are so luxurious. I absolutely loved it. The bedding in this home is super comfortable. Everyone said how well they slept. There are several seating areas for a large group. I made dinner for 19 here(chicken cordon bleu which is kind of gourmet) and I had all tools I needed to do this with. The rec room was very entertaining for the whole family. The golf carts were wonderful to have or else we would have had to drive to the beach. The photos do not do this home justice it is even nicer than they show it to be. If you are looking for a large home for a family vacation do not hesitate to rent this property. You will love it There are 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Can't ask for more than that! The owners are wonderful thoughtful people to deal with and we were very grateful to them for renting us their beautiful home. If we go back to Myrtle Beach again we would certainly not hesitate to stay here again. Love Love Love this place!!!!

Out of the Blue is a beautiful home that you don't want to leave! The owners attention to detail was evident by the beautiful pictures and accent pieces. Even the valances on each window - you can't help but admire the beauty. Also the amenities (appliances, kitchen utensils, beach towels, chairs, etc) - all those "little things" that mean a lot were there! The golf-carts to the beach - what a way to travel. :-) Fun, fun, fun! Who ever came up with "There's no place like home" obviously has never been to Out of the Blue!

This house was absolutely fabulous!! Everything was very beachy, immaculately clean & just beautiful!! Our ages ranged from 11 to 67 & I think we all enjoyed it equally!! We had never stayed in this section before because we generally stay closer to the beach but we enjoyed this house so much it was not an issue. We could not have asked for more gracious hosts that Gwen & Steve. They happened to be in the area & dropped by to introduce themselves. Reid thought the gameroom was the best ever! The two golf carts were great! The furniture was very comfortable & the beds were wonderful!! We go to Sevierville & stay at some of the cabins occasionally & have always thought that was the ultimate vacation - now I think we've found our Oakhaven at the beach!!! Gwen & Steve, thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Just returned home today from a wonderful Connecticut/Colorado family vacation at "Out of the Blue". It was everything and more as shown-the home is just beautiful. From the minute we got there - we felt like we belonged at this house - didn't want to leave and will definitely return. The owners, Gwen & Steve thought of everything from beach towels & chairs to board & video games/books & magazines to make for an enjoyable family vacation for all ages. Everyone enjoyed the use of the golf carts which made getting to the beach so much easier and fun too! Just sitting on the front porch and watching the ducks and the occasional bunny cross the street or sitting in the back with the ducks & turtles was so relaxing. I would recommend "Out of the Blue" to anyone who is looking for a 5+-star place to stay in Myrtle Beach. Our group ranged from 7 years old to 50 something, as well as 19 & 21 and no matter what age - we all loved it there. If you like Japanese - we would also recommend Miyabi Kyoto Japanese Restaurant - the food and entertainment was great. Thank you Gwen & Steve for a wonderful - memorable family vacation - hope to talk to you again to set up another vacation in the future.

We had a teriffic time in Myrtle Beach. "Out of the Blue" was a wonderful place for our family to stay while vacationing. The lower unit was beautiful. Perfectly decorated, immaculately clean and with all ammenities necessary for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Our boys (5, 8) just loved the game room/tiki bar, and spent much time their visiting and playing with the children whose family was renting upstairs. The golf cart made trips to the pool and beach easy and fun for the boys. The small lake in the backyard was filled with turtles and ducks came to visit daily. The ducks ate bread out of our hands. The kitchen was equiped nicely for breakfasts in, lunch out and a nice bbq dinner in. Having laundry in the unit was a great and I came home with all clean laundry (Yay! No days spent when arriving home doing laundry). There were 3 grocery stores within a couple miles; the beach was assessible with provided golf cart with private beach parking. Conches restuarant was inexpensive, with large portions and convienent to the beach. We rented a few days before our arrival and Gwen (owner) was tremendous in getting all of the needed forms, contracts in place and thing organized for our stay. We would and have recommended Out of the Blue to others looking for a beautiful, clean, well equiped beach rental. Thank you for personalizing Out of the Blue and for making our stay so enjoyable.

Out of the blue is a great house to rent. Every detail has been thought of and the owners have made sure that it is an extremely comfortable place to stay. The house is decorated throughout and the furniture and beds are quite comfortable. There was plenty of room for everyone in our group to not only sleep, but to do the things they wanted to do. We ranged in age from my 73 year old dad to my 3 year old nephew and the house was perfectly suited to all. The golf carts were great for getting us and the included, chairs, towels and toys back and forth from the beach. After we left, my children said that riding in the golf cart was the best part of vacation! Although the garage game room was great for them too! Steve and Gwen are great hosts and make sure that your needs are met. They are accessible during your stay if you need anything. We had a great time at out of the blue and would definitely come back!

This is a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood, but still close to the Myrtle Beach attractions. The house is warm, inviting and immaculately clean. The owners have thought of everything needed for a perfect vacation: golf carts, bicycles, beach items, games, coupons. Gwen was even kind enough to recommend restaurants for a birthday celebration and to let us know about a Christmas parade that our grand daughters would enjoy. Our family spent a wonderful week there and we would highly recommend this home to anyone vacationing in the area.

Great way to ring in the new year.

Most folks think of the beach in summer months but one of the best times to enjoy the area is in what's considered the "Off Season". We were lucky to ring in 2013 @ "Out of the Blue". From the moment we set foot in the place, it was obvious that the owners tried to anticipate a visitor's every needs. We brought our teen daughter & 2 of her friends. Everyone had a great time. We never worried about complaints of boredom as there was plenty to do, even in December. We've stayed in several of these rental properties but NOTHING as well appointed or user friendly as this one. Husband wants to look at a summer stay. On that same note, we ate at Valentinos II just down the street. Fantastic, authentic, non-chain Italian food. Put it n the "Places to Eat" list. "Out of the Blue" is a perfect getaway.

Great Stay

We had a great stay at Out of the Blue. Gwen was very accommodating with setting up the reservations. She answered all questions promptly and was very helpful. The home was perfect for our every need. We would love to come and stay again, when the weather is a bit warmer. We didn't have much beach time, but were very close to various attractions.

The reviews and pictures of this vacation home do not do it justice! We could not have been happier with this place from the moment we arrived until the day we departed. It was not only beautiful, but we were provided with all the comforts of home, a thoughtful gift package, and much more than was described on this site. We would recommend this home above all others in the community due to its warm atmosphere, immaculate interior and exterior, and above all the genuinely kind-hearted, thoughtful owners! When reading reviews, one often wonders if the place is really as good as the reviewer says it is. Out of the Blue FAR exceeds any review I could give it...and so do the owners!!

We arrived on Saturday to a immaculate home. It was very spacious and well maintained and decorated. The owners took lots of care with their added touches, from the welcome note to all of the extras they have available for guests. Our kids loved the golf cart best of all. They were asking for a ride on it to everywhere we went. It is very centrally located near the major roads. We loved that it is gated and it felt very safe. We also felt very at home at the rental. The beach was close on the golf cart or bike and it was nice to have a special parking lot for the village. The splash pad and kiddie pool were huge hits with our family. The road we were on was very quiet and it was very nice. We appreciated the beach towels, sand toys, and chairs that were there for our use. It made it easier for us on bringing a lot. It was nice to just bring your clothes. The great room was beautiful and the kitchen was spacious to prepare large family meals at. The kids loved the kiddie table. We loved that the rooms all had a bathroom so it was nice for each family. We had 4 different families here for the week, so 12 of us all had space. You didn't feel on top of each other and had space to do your own thing if you wanted, so that was very nice for us. We enjoyed the back patio and deck overlooking the pond and feeding the ducks. We really liked eating at the Conch Cafe and the food and views were great! Having a grocery store across the street was great especially with young children. We didn't get to take full advantage of e golf courses, but they looked amazing and so close for the house. We really enjoyed everyone. Thank you so much for all of the fun and memories we made at your wonderful home. You're the first place we enjoyed so very much, we'd come back again and rent it. It was truly amazing! Thanks for all you did to make our stay great!!!

This house is fantastic! We enjoyed the house and the community! Steve and Gwen really put a lot of thought into their vacation home. The house had a wonderful beach feel yet each bedroom has its own identity. The home was equipped with the little extras that the basic vacation rental does not come with. We had four children under the age of four with us and they were able to enjoy the kiddie table. The children loved the splash pad and we loved the chaise lounges next to it! The golf carts added a relaxing aspect to the vacation letting us look forward to the community drives. The seaside conch cafe has great she crab soup, not to mention an amazing view! This house is 15 minutes from Broafway at the neach and the airport and about ten to the restaurants in Murrels Inlet. It has a great family vibe! It was a wonderful week at the beach! Thanks for the amazing memories!

Great Stay!

I am a youth pastor at a church in Virginia. We brought our youth group to an event at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center and needed a place to stay for the week. Gwen was willing to work with me to make this happen when other properties would not rent to a group of teenagers and adults. The distance from the attractions of Myrtle Beach is manageable. My students and adults raved about the house. They loved everything about it: the game room, video games, televisions, movie selections, bikes, etc. The golf carts were great and made beach access a breeze. Gwen has literally stocked the house with everything you can think of that you might need: beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, sand toys, etc. The kitchens are nice and well-stocked as well. One of my adults was pleased to find plastic containers to store leftover food from our meals. I cannot imagine finding a place that would have met our needs any better. We had a great time while at Out of the Blue and would certainly recommend to others.

We had a wonderful time at Out of the Blue, the house was great as was all that was offered at the village we could actually stay there and have something to do every day!! Only had to leave to go get groceries so we could eat!! We will recommend the house and village to others looking for a place to go. Enjoyed the fact that we could take the golf carts to pool and beach and not have to move the cars!! So much offered we could not have asked for more!!

Home was clean, beautifully decorated and the provided everything a family needs to at home away from home. The tiki bar/game room area was a hit with the kids on rainy days and evenings. More than enough room for the 7 kids and 7 adults and kid friendly for the our 18month old , 2 and 3 year old. Also great community with community pool, community center/park and access to the beach either by golf cart ,bicycle or walk. Par 3 golf course across from community great course.

Our week vacation at Out of the Blue was amazing! This house has everything and anything a family (or 2) could possibly need! The owners went above and beyond! The house was gorgeous and plenty big for the 11 people we had. The boys loved the clubhouse, which had 2 bunk beds, tv, bathroom and an xbox. The older girls loved that they had their own space on the lower level with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and living room. The game room was a hit and kept the kids entertained for hours. The golf carts were a huge help getting to and from the beach and the pool and sometimes just a night ride around the neighborhood. There were golf carts everywhere-it's a way of life in this community! Surfside Beach is a great place for families-quiet and cozy, but close enough to enjoy everything Myrtle Beach has to offer. The owners even provide plenty of beach chairs, bikes, boogie boards and sand toys for the kids! We couldn't have asked for anything more. Out of the Blue was a perfect place for our families.

Thank you guys for letting us rent your beautiful home. The place was much larger than I thought. 8 of my family members and I write more than comfortable in this spacious house. We rented the upper and lower spaces. My family and I were overwhelmed by the amenities and attention to detail. Cooking was a cinch with all the supplies and utensils needed already in the house. Entertainment was also a breeze with each room having a television. In addition, the outdoor fun with body boards, bikes, and golf carts included was more than expected. My family and I can't wait to come back next year.
