How to Find the Perfect Rental for Your Group Vacation

No matter the reason for your trip­­—a much-needed beach vacation, family reunion, golf outing or just getting your gang back together—North Myrtle Beach is the perfect destination for your next group vacation. With more than 15,000 accommodations, you’re bound to find a great rental option that meets your group’s budget, has more than enough space and is conveniently located near all the things your group will enjoy. One thing is for sure . . . when you stay in North Myrtle Beach, the more the merrier!

For Groups Who Want to be Close

If you want to step outside and right onto the beach but never be too far from your group, rent a spacious oceanfront villa or a beachfront house. In North Myrtle Beach, there are many properties the whole family (or multiple families) can stay in together comfortably.

Beachfront homes are the perfect fit for families who want to spend time together but still want to be spread out. Cook a delicious breakfast and play board games in the evenings. Or, build sand castles with the whole clan. Whatever you want, grab your friends and family and pick the perfect relationship-fostering accommodation to be your home away from home.

For Groups Who Want to Play Golf

If a tee time is your priority, look no further than North Myrtle Beach for your next golf trip. Whether you are enjoying the game with couples or golf buddies, it would be smart to stay near your golf course of choice. Plus, you can unwind in your own room after a long day on the greens. Some accommodations, like Tilghman Beach & Golf Resort, will even let you reserve a round of golf (or a few!) directly with your hotel reservation.  

Another resort, Barefoot Resort, is home to four premium courses: the Norman, the Love, the Fazio and the Dye, affectionately named “The Fantastic Four at Barefoot Resort & Golf.” Stay at the resort or golf villas and take advantage of the nearby shopping, dining and entertainment at Barefoot Landing between rounds. While you’re there, make a reservation for your group at Greg Norman’s Australian Grille. Owned and frequently visited by the international golf legend, this restaurant is a favorite for fine food and its spectacular view overlooking Barefoot Marina. 

For Groups Who Want Everything to be Taken Care Of

For some, planning a vacation is more stressful than it should be! For those who want everything taken care of, opt for a full-service resort or condominium that can coordinate all your vacation needs.

For a group with kids, book a resort that offers abundant amenities that will ensure everyone is happy as a clam. Avista Resort on Ocean Boulevard not only has spacious condominiums with luxurious views of the ocean for the adults and amenities that will keep kids occupied for hours. Enjoy the three pools, two lazy rivers, three hot tubs and a kiddy pool, all with convenient access to the beach.

If you have a larger group, like a family reunion, church retreat or wedding, and want someone else to take care of the details, fill out our Group Travel Form. One of our Group Travel Specialists will happily help you plan the perfect beach getaway.

For Groups Who Need to Combine Work With Play

Some groups traveling need to balance their time between corporate meetings and relaxation on North Myrtle Beach’s wide, beautiful beaches. Luckily, there are a number of resorts and hotels that can accommodate this.

When traveling with colleagues or meeting with professionals, it is important to choose a hotel or resort with adequate staff and technology to help make sure your corporate event is a success. It will also be wise to choose an accommodation that is a one-stop shop fit with a coffee bar, continental breakfast, dry cleaning service, shuttle service and perhaps even a bar for an after-work cocktail. Many of the resorts in the area also offer full-service catering packages that are ready to feed a crowd. An establishment that has everything on the property will be greatly appreciated by professionals juggling busy schedules.

For Groups Who Like Privacy

For groups who love to spend quality time together but also look forward to some alone time and relaxation, opt for a hotel or a large house to rent with lots of rooms (depending on how much privacy you desire). In a hotel room, you will be able to separate from the group and unwind solo or with your significant other. With a beach house, you will be able to relax in the comfort of your own room while sharing the communal living space.

A North Myrtle Beach vacation allows you to not only connect with your friends, family and loved ones but also provides you with an outlet to escape and recharge your own mind. Take an afternoon nap in your own bedroom, wander out to the patio to meditate, practice beachside yoga or go for a jog along the shoreline. In North Myrtle Beach, the possibilities of how you vacation are endless.

For Groups Who Like the Great Outdoors

Looking to become one with nature on a family beach camping trip? There are several RV parks and camp sites for any size group. Briarcliffe RV Resort is centrally located and is less than a mile from the ocean. In addition to providing a parking area for your rig, Briarcliffe’s amenities also include an Olympic-sized pool, bathhouses with hot water facilities and each site even has a concrete patio alongside its parking spot. There’s room for the whole family and friends!

Located a bit more inland, the Willow Tree RV Resort and Campground is known for being “minutes from the beach, miles from the masses.” No RV? No problem. This resort not only has large sites for RVs, but groups who prefer more of a “glamping” experience can opt to stay in a cottage. No matter where you choose to rest, be sure to take the time to enjoy the swimming pool, private lake, fitness center, playground and banquet hall with friends and family, all while enjoying the great outdoors.
