If you're looking for oceanfront living, the Myrtle Beach area is possibly one of the most affordable oceanfront markets on the east coast. Aside from amazing views of the Atlantic, an oceanfront condo offers resort-style amenities and other perks to live like you're on vacation every day.

Oceanfront Condo Options
Oceanfront condos for sale along the Grand Strand are generally located in resorts, of which there are a few dozen along this part of the coast. These resorts have a mix of resort-owned vacation units, owner-occupied units, long-term rental units, and vacation rental (by owner) units. Much of the time, oceanfront condos are sold pre-furnished. The size and number of bedrooms available varies by property, however can range from efficiency units or studios through three-bedroom units. The primary difference between an efficiency unit and a studio is the kitchen. Most efficiency units have a mini-kitchen or kitchenette instead of a full-sized kitchen. Studios usually have a full-sized kitchen. Efficiency units are also less likely to have washer and dryer in unit or have hook-ups for them. Many people who purchase efficiency units use them as vacation rental units.

Typical Amenities
One of the biggest perks of living in an oceanfront condo is the range of amenities available to you every day. Most resorts have multiple pools on-site (both indoor and outdoor), lazy rivers and water parks, hot tubs, fitness centers, on-site spas, restaurants, bars/lounges, ice cream shops, coffee shops, sports courts, playgrounds, game rooms, and a few even have a bowling alley. Most resorts offer free wireless internet and cable television service to all residents and visitors.
