Yuletide Greetings


It seems we have flown right through the Thanksgiving Holiday and now Christmas is right around the corner.  Yet there is STILL so much going on in Myrtle Beach, that the time is just right for a quick trip. 

Greetings and Happy Holidays to all. Well it is that time of the year again. Christmas and Hanukkah are here and we are all preparing for that fun festive time. I hope that all readers are well, happy and healthy. Please remember the reason for the season.

All is well here in sunny Myrtle Beach. Temperatures are still in the 70's, not a cloud in the sky and we are feeling great. We are preparing for the arrival of the winter snow birds (Winter Rentals). Each year, we have an influx of winter guests that arrive at the beach right after the holidays to take advantage of the weather, great rates, shopping, and empty beaches. What a great time to enjoy what Myrtle Beach as well as the surrounding areas have to offer. If you have not visited our website for our winter specials, please do so. Stay with us for 90 days and avoid sales tax!

I would like to say a word to the real estate investors out there. As you know, times are tough but getting better, especially in the realestate market. This leads me to the point regarding Myrtle Beach. There are tremendous properties out there at fantastic prices. Interest rates are low and there are sellers looking for buyers. Please visit our website for our company listings or call one of our professionals to let them assist you in owning a"piece of the beach".  These prices will not last for long so take advantage of owing your place in sunny Myrtle Beach.

From all of us here on the Booe Crew, we would like to wish each and every one of you a joyous and happy Holiday Season. May peace and prosperity be with you all now and in the upcoming year.   

Merry Christmas,
 
The Booe Crew!

Tuesday, September 2, 2014


Well September is upon us bringing summer to end.   We are now in midst of gearing up for the fall and Myrtle Beach’s Secret Season!!  But it’s still not too late to get a last minute run in to the beach.  Right now is the best time to head down to enjoy our corner of the Palmetto State.  The water temps are amazing, the rates are low and the traffic is non-existent. 

Plus there is still so much to do!  In the days of old, Labor Day meant the beach slowing down and turning into a ghost town while everyone closed up shop for a winter rest and geared up for the next season.  But now, with the weather being so moderate and snow birds flocking here to get away from the cold unrest of winter, Myrtle Beach is open year round! 

There is so much to do here in Myrtle Beach from Labor Day through Memorial Day. This time of year we begin focusing on Golf, Festivals, Snow Birds (our Winter guests from up north)  and other activities all along the Grand Strand.  Also, this is the time of year we begin working on innovative ideas to implement for next year to make your summer vacation even more memorable. 

This year, part of the Booe Crew will be heading to sunny San Diego for VRMA, better known as the Vacation Rental Managers Association for their Annual Conference on Oct. 26-29, 2014. With more than 900 of the industry’s top leaders in attendance last year, the VRMA Annual Conference is the largest event in the professionally managed vacation rental industry. The VRMA show offers the latest tips, information, and strategies available through educational sessions and networking opportunities. The ideas and techniques we learn at the VRMA Annual Conference can be immediately implemented to improve our business, provide better value to homeowners and boost guest satisfaction. We can't wait to share all the great ideas we pick up there! 
But now is perfect to take the time to book your fall getaway to sunny Myrtle Beach!
We’ll see you on the Beach!

With May coming to an end we are on a downhill slide straight into summer and everyone is getting ready for that much needed, well deserved week long vacations! 


After working and dealing with a very rough winter and getting caught up from all the snow days, we bet you are ready to just get on the beach! 


Sometimes some of us tend to get a little anxious in our packing and preparing and may forget a couple of things. I know I usually do.  It wouldn’t be a vacation if I didn’t! 


So we thought it might be nice to have a checklist to go by when preparing to head out to the beach and have done our best to think of things that you may need when you get here. 


 





The entire Booe Crew is excited that your family will be joining us for your much needed vacation in just a few days!   Upon your arrival to Myrtle Beach, we want to inform you of what will be provided for you when you enter your vacation rental.  You’ll find a roll of paper towels, a roll of toilet paper and hand soap in each bathroom, a trash can liner and a starter pack of dishwasher detergent.  Hopefully this will eliminate an immediate trip to the store.

We advise you to either bring the following items from home or purchase them from our local grocers:


  • Laundry detergent
  • Additional rolls of paper towels
  • Additional trash can liners (large ones too!)
  • Additional toilet paper
  • Don’t forget the Antibacterial soap!
  • Dish sponge and towel
  • Napkins
  • Zip-Loc bags, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, etc.
  • Condiments, spices, etc.
  • Flashlight and extra batteries in case of power outage….or for the moonlight  walk on the beach
  • First aid kit
  • Sunscreen and aloe (time to turn so you won’t burn!!)
  • Insect repellent (it’s SC and we have big Mosquitoes!!)
  • Beach towels
  • Sheets, pillowcases, bath mats, wash cloths and bath towels (unless purchasing a linen package)
  • Tissues
  • Toiletries
  • Hairdryer (some properties provide these)
  • Umbrellas (lets hope you won’t need this one


These items can be rented (or purchased) from a local vendor:


  • Beach Chairs
  • Beach Umbrella
  • Bicycles
  • Baby Equipment (high chairs, strollers, cribs, etc…)
  • Kayaks
  • Surf Boards

There is a lot of new stuff going on in Myrtle Beach this summer!  To begin with, we have King Kong!!!  Yep, the new Hollywood Waxmuseum is going up where the Nascar Café used to sit at 21st Ave.  And low and behold, structured at the top of the building, fashioned like the “Empire State Building” is Myrtle Beach’s very own Great Ape resembling Hollywood’s famous King Kong! 

 

Also new to the beach this year, where Nascar Speedpark once sat, is now the new Myrtle Beach Broadway Grand Prix! Where Go-Kart racing will be at its finest.

 

There is so much going on in Myrtle Beach.
