That home sweet home feeling hugs you a little more passionately when you’re staying at a place on Myrtle Beach. South Carolina’s sweetest city on the coast has plenty of hotels to choose from, but why settle when you can have the comfort and convenience of an apartment right at your fingertips? Extend your holiday and live like a local in these apartments in Myrtle Beach.

1. Residence Inn by Marriott Myrtle Beach Oceanfront

Staring at the sunrise along South Myrtle Beach, Residence Inn by Marriott invites you to kick off your shoes and stay awhile. On-site drinking and dining gives the feeling of going out while staying in. You can stretch your legs with direct beach access, and the spacious apartment-style suites will make you feel anything but cramped. Walk-out balconies, separate sitting areas, full kitchens, and a complimentary soundtrack of the cool ocean waves will convince you to kick back and relax – for days on end.

2. Bay View Resort

Relive vacations spent between the beach and the boardwalk at Bay View Resort. Take your kids to the Myrtle Beach promenade for the night of their lives with free admission tickets, compliments of the concierge. Whether they play giant chess on the front lawn or refine their cannonballs in the pool, you can grab a coffee from the Starbucks as they make memories to last a lifetime. They’ll sleep deep in the rooms here. Our favorite? The Sunset View one-bed suites for their kitchens with microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Home from home.

3. The Patricia Grand by Oceana Resorts

Talk about child’s play: unlimited mini golf and free tickets to attractions at the boardwalk are all complimentary for kids when you stay at this neat retreat. Rooms with private balconies and convenient kitchens (dog-friendly, to boot) allow you to wallow in a holiday that’s equal parts home – a home that’s a handy few feet from the lapping Atlantic. A lazy river and dedicated kiddie pool will seal the deal for your little ones, and the price will go very easy on your budget.

5. South Bay Inn & Suites

While Myrtle Beach is a near century-old vacation spot, you needn’t shack up in a motel last renovated when FDR was in office. South Bay Inn & Suites is the newest resort in Myrtle Beach, offering dream solutions for modern-day vacationers. Fitness center? Pool? Yes, they have the old reliable standards but upping the ante are a brand-new games room, an oceanview cafe, and no-holds-barred indoor water park. Staying at South Bay Inn & Suites is a vacation within a vacation. Who’d turn their nose up at two treats for the price of one?

6. Ocean 22 by Hilton Grand Vacations

Not only one of the best family-friendly apartments in Myrtle Beach, it’s got the Hilton-label quality guarantee. With the beach as your backyard and Ocean Boulevard as your front lawn, you’ll never view your domestic cul-de-sac the same way again. Home-living and resort amenities mix as naturally as sand and surf at this 24-story tower. Send the children down to the activity area while you and your other half laze in your oceanfront bedroom. Shrug off rainy days in the indoor pool then grab a few fishing rods and cast a line off the pier before the sun sets.

7. Ocean Reef Resort

Is apartment-style accommodation with a view of the ocean all you need? If so, it’ll be suite dreams for you at Ocean Reef Resort. As for the rest of your family, they’ll have zero chance of getting bored. Older ones will dig the games room while your little poppets can walk the plank at Ship Wreck Water Park with waterslides and mushroom waterfalls to play under. Take advantage of unlimited movie rentals to settle them down at night while you and your partner sneak down to the Cafe du Port restaurant for a well-deserved nightcap or two.

8. Dayton House Resort

A hot breakfast, a cool pool, a sun-blasted tanning lawn and a bubbly hot tub all await you at Dayton House Resort. Newly renovated rooms all feature convenient full-kitchens and relaxing balconies right across the street from the ocean. The oceanfront rooms are to die for, but the poolside rooms are just as dreamy, especially if you snag one on the bottom floor where you can hop from the patio into the pool in a few short steps.
