Myrtle Beach International Aiport Upgrades & Improvements

spirit

We are starting to see more visitors in the Grand Strand thanks to spring break and the snow up north. For those that are flying in and out of Myrtle Beach, they will soon be using the new 274,000-square-foot terminal at Myrtle Beach International Airport (myr), which is set to officially open on April 2.  We are all excited because it is almost three years in the making. Airport and city officials are hoping that it will attract major airlines.

So, what does it mean for you? There is a brand new kiosk system. Instead of waiting in line for the airline you are flying with, you can go to any available kiosk to check in, which means quicker check-in times.  Also, a brand-new luggage system is 98 percent hands-free and  luggage will get to the plane quicker and more efficiently. The screening process is also more intense, making flights safer.

There are also more  choices in places to eat.  Besides The Samuel Adams Brew House, Pizza Hut, Java Coast Coffee and Subway, you will also be able to dine at Nacho Hippo, Steak and Shake or Caribou Cafe.

So Myrtle Beach, will this make you want to fly more or will you still prefer to drive to your destination? After moving down from Philadelphia where you had to add an extra hour onto your trip just to park, the hometown feel of our airport and easy parking does encourage travelers to leave the car at the airport instead of the road.

Review of Lakeside Villa at Litchfield / Pawleys Island on Trip Advisor / Flip Key

“”Fantastic Find on Pawleys Island””

As my husband and I drove away from this Remodeled Villa at Litchfield-by-the-Sea on Pawleys Island, I couldn’t wait to share our find with anyone looking for a vacaton rental on Pawleys Island.

As soon as we walked in the front door, we both started smiling:) The Villa is tastefully decorated, but not over decorated, extremely clean, the kitchen is well stocked and bedrooms are cozy and comfortable; this villa is located close to everything you would want on a beach and/or golf vacation.

Brett was very helpful and friendly – putting us both at ease. We often rent from Vrbo and Homeaway and have placed this villa at the top of our list.

Oh and so much to do! First – the beach is a 10 minute walk with a first class beach club with rest rooms and plenty of beach chairs. The pool for the Lakeside Villa is right next door if you prefer a pool to the ocean. Starbuck’s, Webster’s Restaurant, the fitness center, indoor pool, bike rentals, Summerhouse pool with lazy river, and indoor and outdoor hot tubs are all a short walk. Second – the area is loaded with fabulous restaurants both on Pawleys Island and Murrells Inlet -there are too many to mention:) Dinner and cocktails on the large screened porch is a great option. Directly across from Lbts in the shopping plaza is a Piggly Wiggly for groceries, Eggs Up Grill, liquor store, and countless other small shops. “Lovely Nails” was a nice find for a vacation pedicure and manicure.

Golf courses are abundant – both on Pawleys and the Myrtle Beach/Grand Strand area. Frank Theatres for movies, Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington State Park are all a short drive.

We can’t think of one thing we didn’t like about this villa, but our favorite things were walking on the beach, watching the sunset at Murrells Inlet, golf, biking on the beach and bike paths and feeling at home in this villa.

We recommend this Villa to anyone that will treat it with the respect it deserves! We have already booked our next stay:)

How to Save Money on a Vacation Rental

Image 5

After many years of using a rental management company for our Lakeside Villa at Litchfield by the Sea, we have decided to book all of our guests direct.  This is a Win-Win for all of us.  By eliminating the commissions charged by the management company, we can offer very competitive rates.  We entirely renovated out Lakeside Villa from top to bottom last year.  All new furniture including bedding and mattresses.  Three LCD flat screen televisions along with new kitchen cookware and dishes were added.

The entire interior was repainted.  New cabinets in the kitchen and baths along with granite countertops.  New window coverings really gave the interior an upgraded feel.

Additionally, we added sleeping capacity by adding a queen sleep sofa in addition the the king size bed in the master and the two full beds in the second bedroom.

We hated the skimpy towels and run down bed linens offered by the management company.  We wanted a more luxurious resort feel to the bathrooms.

Our goal is to make your visit so comfortable and relaxed that you will come back year after year.  In fact, we want a resort villa that we look forward to using just like our guests.  Thus, we have created a place that we would be happy for you to call your vacation home.

We eliminated expenses such as the $26 per month for a land line.  That money is better spent on FREE WIFI for our guests.  We eliminated the daily cleaning fee charged to us and hired a top notch cleaning service to maintain our Lakeside Villa and upgraded the linens and towels.

And we want to hear from you after your stay.  We want to know what you liked and your suggestions on what you want to make your next visit even better.  And once you stay with us, you are eligible for referral dollars and reduced “Preferred Guest” rates.

We invite you to be our guest – please visit our website www.BeachAndGolfGetaway.com and LIKE us on Facebook
