Martha Sigmon purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Martha Sigmon chose Myrtle Beach
We chose to purchase in Myrtle Beach and at the Grand Atlantic because of the location and there is so much to do in and around Myrtle Beach. The Boardwalk is less than 2 miles away as is the Family Kingdom Amusement Park and the Family Kingdom Oceanfront Water Park. Also very close by, is the downtown Sky Wheel where you can take a ride in on of their air conditioned gondolas and see Myrtle Beach as you have never seen before. At dark, the Sky Wheel is a beautiful light show with 1 million LED lights. The Sky Wheel show and be seen up and down the boardwalk and as you are driving in the area. The Grand Atlantic is about 2 or 3 miles from the Market Commons and 2 miles from the Myrtle Beach Airport. Many popular eating places and grocery stores are near by. Myrtle Beach and the Grand Atlantic are located about half way between North Myrtle Beach and Surfside Beach. All these areas run together and you can go either way north or south or stay right around Myrtle Beach and find many things to do, places to eat, entertainment and shopping.
What makes this Condo unique
There are several reasons we chose the Grand Atlantic Ocean Resort. (1) We love the 3rd floor convenience and view. You are high enough for a good view but not real high. From inside the condo, you can stand at the kitchen sink or sit at the table and see the ocean waves and the people on the beach. Our condo is ocean front and has a large balcony. We love the master bedroom and living room being on the ocean front.(2) The parking deck is attached to the building and you can enter the 3rd floor of the building from the 3rd floor of the parking deck. The higher floors do not have this convenience (up past the 6th floor). It is so nice to get out of your car on the 3rd floor of the parking deck (parking is first come first serve) and walk right in to the condo, if you can get a space on the 3rd floor of the parking deck, which usually you can. (3) Less time waiting on elevators on the lower floors. (4) Enclosed hallways (5) Clean grounds and well taken care of. (6) Entrance out to the beach is a short walk. Go out past the pools , across a short bridge and you are on the beach. (7) Spacious rooms and our condo has 3 full big bathrooms. (8) Indoor pools, along with outside pools. If you get sun burned or it is raining or just to hot to get out in the sun, under the building is the Lazy River, another large pool, a kiddie pool and hot tub. If you go in the cooler months, this same area is glass enclosed therefore you can use the amenities year round. The indoor and outdoor pools are heated. (9) Exercise/Workout Room. (10) Game room (11) There is also a washer and dryer in the condo. Our condo # 302 had all these things we were looking for and we felt like our guest would enjoy them also. One unique benefit, during Memorial Day through Labor Day, we have reserved for our guest, 2 beach chairs and a beach umbrella out on the beach, put up by the Life Guard each day.

Needs updating - especially the mattresses
Great amenities, location, & convenient to beach, shops, and attractions.
Mattresses are over 12 years old (dated 2006) and difficult to sleep on comfortably, other items supplied were great.
Owner was flexible, accommodating, and very helpful and quick to respond to any changes needed.
Wanted to respond to your issue concerning the mattresses in the condo. First off, they are not all dated 2006. We have probably had about 2 negative responses as to how comfortable the mattresses are, and this is over the past several years. There is an old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". We think the mattresses are comfortable and have had comments from others that they are. They are not pillow top but they are between soft and firm. We think this is what our guest like, since it is in between. It is very difficult to come from your home mattress to another mattress that your body and back are not used to. I have been in several different places while traveling and usually the mattresses do not fit my choices or the comfort of what I am used to in my home mattress. Mattresses usually last anywhere from 10 to 20 years so I guess you putting the date was to support your feelings of comfort or just to let someone know you thought they were old. We have guest who come every winter for 2 and half months and have been coming for about 7 years and they love the mattresses.
As far as updating, we have new floors, new sofa, new dishwasher, new washer and dryer, new HVAC, new refrigerator and we have a smooth top cooking range and we also have all new flat screen tv's. On the balcony we have a new table and chairs and a new rocker. We also have a well stocked kitchen as most of our guest pass along their comments on the kitchen.
They also e-mail us to our personal e-mail and comment on different likes and dislikes, which we consider as good feedback. I feel they understand it is not a point to be negative but a great way to communicate with us on their personal opinions. We love to communicate and get to know our guest and we appreciate the feedback we receive from many of our guest. We are sorry you didn't think it was updated enough for your personal opinion. We are all of different opinions and this is the way God made us. Thank you for your review and we hope future guest will appreciate some of the updating we have done.
Love the condo
Great condo. My family and I had a great time. Loved the 3rd floor parking and straight in one door and the condo was right there. The pools and hot tub were always clean. Access to beach was great. Would definitely stay again.
The property was great. The door is right outside the elevator which makes beach wagons and kids so easy to navigate. Also helps to unload the vehicle. The condo was very clean, and all switches were labeled, which helps for lights and fans. The beach chairs reserved is great bonus. It allows a slow wake up with kids and your spot is right there on the "umbrella line" and you can arrive when you get ready.
Great for families with kids
Our stay was wonderful. Loved the ocean view and space. Condo had everything as expected. Parking was excellent. We enjoyed our stay very much! Thank you!
This was our 2nd year staying at this location. It was amazing, the condo is beautiful, well appointed and well kept. Perfect for a family with kids. Having three bedrooms and 3 baths is wonderful. Recommend you won’t be disappointed.

Another great stay at Myrtle Beach! We have been coming to MB for over 20 years having stayed at other locations until we found this condo. We like going to the beach in the morning and then coming to the indoor pools to get out of the sun but still able to feel the ocean breeze . The lazy river pool and hot tub spa are very relaxing. We are looking forward to our next visit.
