This is a bit of an unusual place to stay. It's an upscale outdoor mixed use mall (Market Commons) that is fairly close to the airport. Above the stores and restaurants are condos and timeshares. The rooms then are just some of these condos that get rented out. We have three children so we got a 2-bedroom unit (king & queen beds) that has a sleeper sofa in the living room. The place was spacious and very nice inside. We were on a corner, with the living room and outside patio there right on the corner and a bedroom on each of the sides.
The area around the complex is very pleasant and safe. There is a huge athletic complex with fields, etc. across a lake. Other townhomes and condos are being put up in the surrounding area too, but it's fairly deserted around it. It's right on Farrow Parkway which has to be the road in Myrtle Beach with the least traffic (a big plus). It's actually quite quiet as MB goes, much more tame than the rowdy beach areas and route 17. This can either be a plus or minus for you -- it was a plus for us.
They give you a free pass to the SC state parks which is nice (good beaches). There is a Piggly Wiggly grocery store right there (our room was practically over it) which is great. On the downside, there is no pool and you aren't right on the beach. As others have mentioned, the blinds on the windows let a lot of light in. Didn't bother us, but it may to some people.
Not sure I would recommend the place for a couple getting away (depends upon what you like), but for a family, I felt it was a good fit and the price was reasonable.
