My wife and I travel to the beach all the time. Either, for shopping,nightlife or just to get away. We have stayed in alot of different resorts. All were missing something, whether it was noisy,decor or just customer service wasnt up to par. We were begining to think, no matter where you stayed it wasnt going to be perfect. Man! We were wrong! This place is perfect! I tried to find some thing wrong and I couldnt. From the decor to the service was top notch! They really care about you and your business. We will definitely stay here again and again!

Room Tip: Oceanfront!Oceanfront!Oceanfront! These are the best rooms anywhere.

I am a North Myrtle Beach resident, living about 20 blocks from the Mar Vista Grande. During the 2012 Christmas season, I rented a 3-bedroom ocean front condo at the Mar Vista Grande so that my family from the cold northeast and I could have a little vacation within a vacation. Rooms were immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and fully stocked with matching glasses, plates, silverware, etc. the grand kids (7 and 10) loved the indoor pool and the adults enjoyed sitting on the nice-sized balcony enjoying the beautiful view. Everyone we came in contact with who worked there were extremely nice and helpful. My son is not easily pleased and he was totally impressed with the condo and will recommend the Mar Vista Grande to his friends back home. Price was extremely good too. It's one of the nicest resorts on the beach, I think, and I will certainly go there again to enjoy ocean front living in a beautiful setting.

Room Tip: Look online at the decor so you can choose the type you want as all condos are decorated differently...

It is wonderful hearing that that as a native resident of the North Myrtle Beach area, you found a vacation destination just minutes away with the Mar Vista Grande. We are so happy that your entire family, even those harder to please members, were impressed with our accomodations and amenities. We would love for you to come back and visit us any time for another oceanfront getaway!

Sophisticated, gorgeous, directly oceanfront! From Jenn-Air appliances to exotic granites to Bernhardt furniture to state-of-the-art electronics – every single detail of suite 912 is lush and stylish.

This three-bedroom, three-bath home-away-from home provided ample room for my husband and me as well as my two daughters, their spouses and all the kids for a superbly relaxing week.

I’m an interior designer and my husband’s an architect, so we know quality. This swanky oasis had everything we wanted – and more, including its own name: Lucky Dogs. And, after a week immersed in luxury, that’s exactly how we felt – like lucky dogs!

I read on some reviews that Marvista does not provide hair dryers. Penthouse 1514 had EVERYTHING. We have stayed here in the past (as a winter snow birds) and have had the chance to be in alot of condos in the building visiting with other snowbirds. Penthouse 1514 is by far the nicest condo that we have had the opportunity to stay in. We were there the first week in August and if you needed or wanted it this condo had it. We were welcomed with a beautiful gift courtesy of the owners. The condo was so clean and so well taken care of you could not ask for more. Although not oceanfront, it has a view to die for looking down the coast for at least 30 miles. Flat screen TVs in every bedroom, and a large flat screen TV in the living room that actually remotely goes down into a cabinet when not in use, (I have only seen that on TV) Three bicycles, boogie boards, beach chairs, childrens beach toys were all available to us from the owners storage unit that is on the same floor. Very nice outdoor dining area that seats 8. Could not ask for anything more, we will be back, but only to 1514.

Room Tip: No restaurant in building but very close to the resort.

We stayed in Condo 913, the condo was super clean, the kitchen had all newer appliances, nice dishes, pots & pans, only bad thing...no dish towels or pot holders (which was odd for how nice everything else was). The dish towels supplied by the Marvista, 1 washing cloth and 1 drying cloth are changed out each day, but you can only have 1 set, per the cleaning staff. That was a little difficult with 6 people, but we had plenty of paper towels, so no biggie. Bath towels are changed each day too. Only thing, nothing in the bathrooms, no hairdryers, no extra toilet paper.
The Condo itself was perfect, every room was very comfortable. To watch the sunrise each morning on the balcony and then the sunset from the same balcony each night was the best treat! We enjoyed that so much.
The pools were wonderful because they were heated and it was perfect for the weather that we had. Pools were nice and clean too.
All public areas of the Marvista area were lovely too, the check-in area was nice and clean, Alex who checked us in was pleasant. Parking is easy, lots of it b/c it was off season.
Access to the beach was easy, the beach is clean.
We plan to stay here again next year, we will know what to bring that is not stocked in that condo.

From dealing with Alex at check-in to checking out with him 5 days later, we could not have asked for more professional yet friendly staff. Room was everything we expected and more. Grounds very well kept; easy parking, convenient lcation. We watched the sun rise from our balcony and also watched it set each evening from same balcony. For our group of six that comes to NMB each October, it was the best accommodations we have experienced. We are looking forward to 2013 trip back to Mar Vista Grande.

Room Tip: oceanfront rooms allow you to see sunrise

Myhusband and I stayed this past weekend at the Mar Vista Grande condominiums .... what a beautiful property. Full service to the max. Although, travel advisory, they DO NOT furnish hair dryers in the units. Everything else is there....but no hair dryers. We had a beautiful unit with a table and chairs on the balcony which overlooked the pools and beach. The weather was beautiful as well and the furnishings in the condo were all top notch. We were very impressed with the appliances, these were all high end and stainless steel. Granite counter tops and the master bathroom could easily have been used for a party. The shower could easily fit four people. Their soaking jetted tub was also very nice. They have a Tiki Bar, but since it was off season, the bar was closed. However, it was fine, as we brought our own snacks. The amenities are delightful with many pools to choose from and large hot tubs, a lazy river, direct access to the beach, plenty of parking, and lots of elevators. We would highly recommend a stay here, however, in the high season, the rates will most certaily be higher. The dining table was absolutely beautiful, glass, large, and the chairs (there were 6) were so comfortable and beautiful. There were two large queen beds in each of the other rooms, one bedroom had it's own bathroom. There was a full bath in the hall for the additional bedroom to use and the master bedroom had it's own bathroom. In addition, the living room had a large sofa sleeper with a comfy love seat and large cushy chair. This was definitely a keeper!
Travel advisory ... there is no restaurant on the property so be prepared to walk or drive to get food or bring your own and never leave this beautiful place!
