Thistle Cove Cottage

The twin bedroom and bath are decorated in a black and white theme. The to-do list is simple…wake up when you want to, enjoy the sunrise, smile, laugh, read a good book (plentiful eclectic library at the condo), get and stay cozy, relax, take a long hot bubble bath…or enjoy the private hot tub…enjoy the sunset, repeat.

Steps away from the elevator, you open the front door, enter the foyer then then the kitchen. The view beyond the dining area and living room is the Atlantic Ocean.  An embroidered wall hanging says, “May you have just enough clouds in your life to give you beautiful sunsets.”


The dining table and chairs are among my mother-in-law’s first household furnishings (1934), as are the Hoosier cabinet and dish cabinet  A sturdy chopping block sits atop the matching Hoosier kitchen/pantry table.


The master bedroom has more hand crafted pieces with doors leading to the balcony which faces the Atlantic Ocean.


The beach is calling…contact me now to make your reservations at Thistle Cove Cottage.

Another Happy Renter

Look for the pelican!

Look for the pelican!

We stayed for 3 nights and had an amazing time. The owner, Sandra, was helpful throughout the entire booking process and answered every question we had before and during our stay. The condo was amazing, it was like home away from home only better. The couches and beds were comfy, the bathrooms were nice and the showers had great water pressure. Everything in the condo made you feel relaxed and comfortable. The balcony was nice and comfortable and perfect to sit and enjoy the views. Both the bedroom and living room opened up to the balcony which was nice. There were plenty of movies, books, and board games to keep busy if you weren’t out enjoying the beach. The pool and hot tub were very nice and while we were there not crowded at all. We were also able to park directly under our condo which I liked since we could keep an eye on my car. We were just a short walk across the street from the beach and had a perfect view of the beach from the balcony. We stayed during labor day and it was not crowded at all in Cherry Grove which we enjoyed. We had such an amazing time and we couldn’t have picked a better place to stay. We will definitely be back next year.

The following are some of the reviews from families who’ve stayed at Thistle Cove Cottage; we appreciate every one!


Awesome Beach Condo with Amazing Ocean View – I cannot choose which one is better, the condo or the owner of the condo. Sandra is such a wonderful homeowner & makes the rental process so simple. You will not be disappointed with this rental. The condo is located in the Cherry Grove section of North Myrtle Beach & if you have never visited this great little beach town, you don’t know what you’re missing. The condo has all the amenities of a regular home. Comfy couch, comfortable beds, awesome water pressure in the showers, & a million dollar view of the ocean from the patio, the living room, or the master bedroom. The beach & ocean are just a stone’s throw away & after you have had your fill of sun & sand you can take a dip in the clean cool condo pool or warm up in the hot tub. The condo is also close to the many attractions that Myrtle Beach has to offer like Barefoot Landing, Broadway at the Beach, Pirates Voyage, Myrtle Waves, Restaurant Row, Hard Rock Cafe, Planet Hollywood, The Skywheel, the boardwalk, boat tours & banana boat rides, souvenir shops, & many many more. My family, including small children, stayed at the condo for an entire week & we did not want to leave. Our stay was relaxing & rejuvenating. No parties, no loud music, no smoking, the condo is located in the perfect building. Don’t spend your money on some expensive hotel when you can stay at this amazing condo, which feels just like a home away from home. Also, maintenance & management are just a phone call away to take care of any concern or question you may have. My family & I cannot wait to return. Again, you will not be disappointed with this wonderful condo. Amazing location, spectacular views, great price, & a friendly & easy going homeowner. I had the best vacation ever & made lots of great memories & you will too if you choose to stay here. – Stayed August 2014

Good location, good view, good proximity to beach – We stayed four nights and enjoyed the close proximity to the beach. The balcony looks at the ocean and the beach is just across the street. Nice having a pool at the condo as well. – Stayed August 2014

Exceptional Location – We had a beautiful time at the place. Though we went on the bikers weekend we had a lot of peace and quiet. The beach was just a stone throw . Went to the beach 3 times a day, there was always activity on the beach and was always happening. I would love to go back again. – Stayed May 2014

Absolutely charming…relaxing listening to the ocean from the balcony. – We are looking forward to our third vacation visit to this condo in August 2013. We have absolutely loved every minute of our new home away from home. The photos reflected exactly the appearance and amenities. The condo is so nice, clean and well maintained. The beds are very comfortable and believe me, that is something you really want after spending the day on the beach or at the many attractions in the area. Our kids loved the fact that we had a condo and not a motel room where we could relax and enjoy ourselves. The pool was clean refreshing and inviting. I hope we have time to try out the hot tub this time. My husband like the fact that the kitchen was well equipped and we saved so much money eating at the condo and preparing our own meals that we were able to enjoy a few of the shows, like the Carolina Opry, Barefoot Landing and the Pirate show. If you are looking for a really nice place to stay at the beach this is it. Thanks Sandra for making our vacation fun and affordable, it was as if we were old friends. Don’t forget, we want to stay here every August and at Christmas too! – Stayed November 2012
