We firmly believe that there is no better place to live, work or retire than Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The cost of living at our beach is lower than most. Our climate is mild. The hospitals and physicians are some of the best in the south. Our attractions and restaurants are second to none.

You can live in the middle of the excitement or no more than a mile away...still able to enjoy the beautiful wildlife and no sounds to disturb the evening except the tree frogs. Luxurious private golf course homes or Intracoastal Waterway views compete with oceanfront landscapes and resorts where your every need is planned for.

Whether you choose to retire in Myrtle Beach or vacation here, owning property in Myrtle Beach is the best way to invest in a lifestyle that only the Grand Strand can provide. Most of our residents started out as visitors and found they didn't want to leave!
