Myrtle Beach has an embarrassment of incredible beaches. Throw in myriad attractions, entertainment options and resorts and it’s not tough to see why this South Carolina spot remains a family favorite. If it’s an adrenaline rush you need, there are watersports of every flavor, including jet skis, surfing and parasailing, while on-land draws include golfing, horseback riding and visits to Ripley’s Aquarium. If you’re a self-caterer looking to stay in Myrtle Beach, there are plenty of options to choose from. Here’s our pick of the best vacation rentals in Myrtle Beach, all bookable with Culture Trip.

The Caribbean Resort is another Myrtle Beach vacation rental that’s especially well-designed for families, with a splash park, pools, spiraling water slides, and direct beach access. The apartment has French windows opening out onto the sea-view balcony: you have uninterrupted views over the white-sand beach, its pristine sand lapped at by the waves. The resort’s location, a twenty-minute walk from Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, means that you don’t need to hop in the car to enjoy the big panoramic wheel and the town’s lively dining scene, from ice cream parlors and burger joints to daiquiri bars.

5. Camelot by the Sea 417, for numerous watery attractions on-site

The Compass Cove condo is a beach ball’s throw from the beach, and the three-bedroom apartment here boasts superb ocean views from its balcony. The complex has a fantastic range of indoor and outdoor pools and an especially top-notch water park that includes some head-spinning water slides. The accommodations are decked out in neutral shades, with bleach-white linen and wooden headboards, a wood-paneled kitchen, and whitewashed furniture. Claim the Master bedroom if epic watery vistas from your balcony are a dealbreaker.

Well-located in central Myrtle Beach, this graceful complex has balconies to make the most of the views over the immaculate rolling greens of the golf course, as well as the mature trees and not-a-leaf-out-of-place topiary. There’s a stately look to the apartments, and particularly the bedrooms, with their arched windows and royal-blue covers and curtains. The open-plan living rooms are smartly sheathed in silver, grey and white. Ideal golfing location aside, you’re also close to the beach and can splash around in the outdoor pool.

8. Grand Atlantic 1701-3, for ocean views

This upmarket condo, located directly on the oceanfront, is a great place to enjoy the sea breeze and sea views. Its curved balconies are reminiscent of an ocean liner. Furnishings are neutral with flashes of sea-blues and the master bedroom has a king-size bed and a private balcony. With two more bedrooms and a sofa bed, it’s a good size for families or groups of friends, and all the attractions – from the boardwalk and fairground rides to watersports and golf courses – are either walkable or a short drive away.
