Introduce your guests to some of your favorite things at the beach.

Compile a binder with to-go menus, attraction brochures, or shopping center information highlighting your favorite places to visit while at the beach. Besides the beach, guests are often looking for suggestions on other enjoyable places to explore during their stay.


Summer Home Style - May 2010
Reinvesting in Your Business at the Beach

According news reports and tourism numbers from local agencies, Summer 2010 was successful throughout Myrtle Beach - guest occupancies were up and more crowds were noticeable out and about across the area. After the economic uncertainty of the past few years, this year's success is a great opportunity for you to re-invest in your vacation rental property at the beach. Now is the time to start thinking about your condo and the furniture updates you may have delayed for many reasons the past few years. Remember that if you rent your unit it is a business investment - it is very important to stay competitive, present your condo at its best, and set yourself up for repeat guests. 

You may feel apprehensive when considering updates to your rental condo, but many of these concerns are easy to address: 

  • There is no need to re-do everything: The key is determining what is OK to work with and what is worn. Sofa or bedspread fabrics that are visibly worn, faded, or stained need to be addressed. Furniture that is very marked up, unstable, or stylistically dated should be strongly considered.
  • Make the most of your budget: Focus on updates that will make the biggest improvement for your guests. For example, a new sleeper sofa can help you accommodate larger groups or families, or new bedspreads can freshen up the appearance of existing bedroom furniture. 
  • Focus on quality products that will not wear easily, which will save you time and money in the long run by not having to repeatedly search out replacement pieces.

New Feature: Complete the Look

We are excited to introduce a new feature - every month we will present a selection of items to help show you how easy it is to coordinate your condo decor, either with new furnishings or working with your existing pieces!

St. Lucia Ocean Sleeper Sofa

Bahama Mama Coral Coordinate

Bahama Mama Lemongrass Coordinate

Shoreline Ecru Drapery

Cordelia Cameo Lamps

Cayman Sea Bedspreads
St. Lucia Ocean has been one of our most popular upholstery fabrics since it was introduced. The pattern's elegant appearance and pleasing blue background are easy to work with and are not too overpowering. Side chairs or other accents work great in either Bahama Mama Coral or Bahama Mama Lemongrass. The Shoreline Ecru drapery softens the sofa fabric and gives a nice, easy neutral backdrop for the rest of the decor. Continue a fun tropical theme throughout the condo with Cayman Sea bedspreads and Cordelia Cameo table lamps.
New Upholstery Fabric Selections

The latest additions to our Seaside Fabric Collection are sure to add some bright, vibrant touches to your coastal decor!

Sunset Lagoon is a vibrant island-inspired fabric, with bright tropical plants and leaves in rich blues, greens, purples, and peaches on a sunny yellow background.
Shorely Blessed offers classic coastal colors in a fun beachy combination. Neutral enough to coordinate with a variety of patterns, this fabric offers a subtle stripe look that will liven up any seaside decor.
