If you're one of those folks that never wants to leave the beach, that wants to live life like a permanent vacation, well then it's time to stop fighting it. With a year-round vacation town like Myrtle Beach you can live the good life in perfectly affordable luxury. Read Guide >
With all this luxury, you would think that finding a cheap apartment for rent is just as hard as finding a polar bear in Hawaii. Well, Myrtle Beach is a city where many cold-weather mammals (such as Canadian college students) come to bask in the sun, as well as a city that has plenty of cheap apartments. With one to three-bedroom apartments renting in the $500 - $900 range, as well as a few studio apartments for rent below $400, there are lots of options for a local budget-minded renter. Of course, you can spend more if you want. Beachfront condos, luxury apartments, and stylish marketplace studios rent in the $700 to $1,500 range.
Keep in mind that the more you spend on an apartment rental, the more resort-like your home will be. Sure you can rent for as low as $400, but those studio apartments for rent at $700 come with all sorts of shiny bells and whistles. At the higher price point, you can expect your community to come with a swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, gym, business center, game room, clubhouse, sand volleyball court, and a backdrop of breathtaking stone balconies, private terraces, and other beach-resort-style opulence. You can also expect an ideal location, such as on the water, or above the marketplace.
On the other hand, you can save some money renting a cheap apartment with a bit more distance to the beach and other popular attractions. In cheap apartments, however, you will have just basic amenities, such as a laundry room, a little playground, and some picnic tables.
Need a pet friendly apartment? Need a dog friendly apartment? Need a monkey friendly apartment? No worries. There are a handful of apartments for rent in Myrtle Beach with cats allowed, dogs allowed, "other" pets allowed, and even multiple pets allowed. However, you better have a little extra cash saved for your move-in date, because most places will charge a non-refundable pet fee of $300. Need a pet-free apartment life? Well, you’re also in luck. A lot of local apartment complexes are both pet-free and smoker-free, and there are also pet friendly rental properties with separate buildings for pet-lovers and pet-loathers.
So, now you are ready to be a permanent vacationer in Myrtle Beach. Good luck!
