About Ron, Carol, or Steve Pode
Last year was only our second year listing our villa on VRBO. The natural beauty of the area and the ever-increasing attractions make the Grand Strand a very popular vacation destination. We received numerous positive comments from guests in our 2018 guest book and from guest reviews sent to VRBO. We are now very pleased to be listed as a 5 Star resort. With positive referrals from guests our villa's availability was filled quickly. Our villa is unique in that it is one of a few villas in Ironwood with a view both of a golf course and the inter-coastal waterway. In 2018, we had 11 months of guests, with most returning every year. Every year we make top level additions to our villa. Our returning guests, as well as our own family enjoy these upgrades Many of the Barefoot VRBO listings are being managed by rental management companies, which are not located at Barefoot. In fact, some of them are at least a 30 minute drive from Barefoot. They operate during regular business hours. If a guest has a problem after the business closes, they need to leave a recorded message, waiting for a call back. We are very fortunate to have Mike and Lee, who have a Mom and Pop business, do our cleaning and maintenance. They live in the area, and they are well regarded in the local business community. We often had several requests for the same time period. As a result, our availability calendar filled quickly. To avoid disappointment, as soon as your vacation plans are finalized, we would recommend that you secure your time period. In our hectic and stressful every-day lives, vacations are needed to enjoy life and create life-long memories
Ron, Carol, or Steve Pode purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Ron, Carol, or Steve Pode chose North Myrtle Beach
Several months prior to construction, we were able to select the location of our Ironwood villa. We were aware this would be the last building to be constructed and it had the added premium of being located on a cul-de-sac. Also, only a few select villas would have a golf course and an inter-coastal waterway view. We had a choice of any villa on any floor to make a deposit on. We immediately eliminated a first floor location. The villa floor would be on a cement base. During the cold months, the unit would be cold and damp. During the warmer months, the unit would be humid with bugs and other insects causing a problem. A first floor location would also elimate our premium golf course and waterway view. There would be a lack of privacy on our rear deck. We questioned the security aspect of leaving personal property on a first floor rear deck. Headlights from cars in the parking lot would also affect those in the second bedroom. We how had a choice of any villa on either the 2nd or 3rd floor. The 2nd floor was an ideal location to have our premium view, and also one less flight of steps to reach our villa. Since we were selecting our future retirement home, we knew how important and permanent our decisions would be.
What makes this Villa unique
For the golfer, there are over 100 golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area. Right on the Barefoot Resort are the 4 famous courses designed by Greg Norman, Tom Fazio, Davis Love III, and Pete Dye. Starting in 2011, a golf academy will open at Barefoot. Golf Digest rates the area as “America’s top 100 great public courses.” Along Hwy 17 is the area known as Restaurant Row. The Grand Strand area has thousands of restaurants that feature a wide variety of culinary delights. Numerous fresh seafood restaurants that specialize in Calabash style cooking. Beside the fresh seafood other dining options include everything to a burger to an upscale steakhouse. The international flair ranges from Italian, German, Thai, and Caribbean. Something for every taste bud and budget. Near the entrance of the Barefoot Resort are the Barefoot Towers. This area contains a large marina on the Inter-coastal Waterway. At this location is the largest outdoor swimming pool in SC. It has a unique structure which adds to the enjoyment of all.

Everything was great condo was very nice and clean!!! Had a great time!
Very nice condo great price!
The owners were very good at communication throughout the process. The condo was bright and sunny, especially good for northerners coming from the cloudy and cold north. The unit was well furnished and the king bed was comfortable. The kitchen contained everything we needed. There were plenty of towels and blankets. The extremely well landscaped resort made it pleasurable to walk, which we did nearly every day. The location, while not on the beach, was very quiet and the perfect location at the end of the street facing the golf course. The location was convenient for things we like to do like walking, visiting state parks, going to several beaches and day trips to Wilmington and Charleston. Overall an excellent stay and would recommend the condo to anyone.
We had a wonderful stay at ironwood. The place was clean and everything was provided. The location was nice too. Everything was easy even with our mandatory evacuation because of hurricane Florence.
very attractive and well kept
This is a wonderful location, everything is easily accessible and never more than 10 minutes away. We were quite content with the beach and the Ironwood pool so we didn't visit the big pool. The Pete Dye golf course is quite challenging and has some beautiful homes. There were plenty of cars in our section and I saw several families with kids but it was never noisy....even in our unit, I never heard anyone upstairs. Everyone we saw was friendly. You can't go hungry, there are more restaurants here than in other resort area that we have visited. Broadway on the Beach was a fun night time outing and just walking around the lake at Barefoot was enjoyable and a good way to walk off a little dinner. Plenty of shopping if that's your idea of fun. Hope to do it all again next summer.
Quiet and Clean
Very nice condo....clean, quiet and had everything we needed for the week. The unit is very bright and spacious and just as described!

Always great to hear positive comments from our guests. We put lots of hands-on effort and work to keep our villa in top notch condition. When we arrive for our own vacation, we want every thing to be perfect. We now have over 6 months of guests who return every year. Many guests have now become long distance friends, and we communicate on a regular basis.
Free-falling from a 60-foot tower, slipping down an oceanfront zip line, or fighting through a curve in a car once driven by a NASCAR great are among the new attractions that will greet our guests during their stay at our Grand Strand villa. The ocean-front boardwalk has also been extended. Along with the 102 regular golf courses, there are about 30 miniature golf courses. The NASCAR Racing Experience will allow drivers to get behind the wheel of a car that was once driven by NASCAR drivers such as Jimmie Johnson or Jeff Gordon. The Springmaid Pier at more then 1,000 feet offers sweeping views of the oceanfront. Tanger Outlets has 2 locations (one a short distance from our villa) with nearly 100 stores for the shoppers in your family.
