About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths(Outdoor Shower), (Sleeps 15)

PLEASE SEND INQUIRY TO OWNER TO RECEIVE AN ACCURATE QUOTE! Enjoy the beautiful oceanview from THE YELLOWBIRD, my fully furnished four Bedroom, two and a half bath lakefront house that sleeps up to 15. Watch the sunrise over the ocean or the sunset over the lake. A short five minute walk to the ocean or a two minute cart ride puts you on one of South Carolina's prettiest beaches.

Take advantage of the large decks to enjoy the outdoors without the sand. Fish in Magnolia Lake from your own backyard or choose one of the other 4 freshwater lakes. Take a short stroll to the beach or enjoy cruising around the park on a rented golf cart. The large lot gives you room to breathe and provides plenty of parking in addition to the covered parking.

THE YELLOWBIRD is located in Ocean Lakes, a spectacular oceanfront, family-oriented, gated resort with 24 hour roving security patrol and amenities galore. Within the Resort, with its one mile of private beach, you will also find - outdoor olympic-size pool, indoor heated pool, NEW WATER PARK, kiddie "action" pool, miniature golf, recreation center with supervised daily activities, skate park, kids day camp (so Mom and Dad can have a day off), large arcade, surfing, Bocci Ball, horseshoes, oceanfront basketball and shuffleboard courts, playgrounds, snackbars, wireless internet, shopping, grocery store, golf cart rentals, and more. There is no additional charge for the use of any of the Ocean Lakes amenities by our guests. Nearby you can also find water-skiing, jet-skiing, windsurfing, parasailing, outlet shopping, amusement parks, cinemas, deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, and all kinds of major attractions.

THE YELLOWBIRD is furnished with everything you would need at home including four TVs (one large-screened), WiFi and an outdoor gas grill. The 2-zoned HAC provides plenty of indoor comfort in addition to all the overhead fans. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, glass-top stove and self-cleaning oven, dishwasher, filtered water at the kitchen sink, large side-by-side refrigerator/freezer with filtered ice & water in the door, blender, toaster, toaster oven, coffee maker, electric hand mixer, pots and pans, china and glassware, flatware and cutlery, pitchers, and baking pans. You will also find filtered water at the master bath sinks.

There is a heavy-duty, extra-capacity Washer and Dryer on the first floor. The 2 hot water heaters mean there is plenty of hot water for all those showers at the end of the day.

Guests are responsible for all paper products and trash bags as well as bed and bath linens. OPTIONAL SERVICES that are available for a fee: Linen package rental, golf cart rental, and departure cleaning.

There are lots of tables, chairs, and loungers on the decks so you can enjoy the outside 'at home' as well as on the beach. Long-term winter rentals have the option of enjoying the warmth of two gas fireplaces.

Dogs may be considered for an additional fee of $100 per dog and a refundable $200 pet security deposit. Some breeds are excluded. Final decision rests with The Yellowbird owners. Absolutely NO CATS!!

About Dawn Harrington

I have been coming to Ocean Lakes since the first year it opened. When I married, this became one of our regular vacation spots. In 1979 we bought our first summer cottage here. Our children grew up spending many of their summer vacations in Ocean Lakes. In 2000, we retired here and built The Yellowbird as our permanent residence on the lake. Our kids and their college friends loved to come and visit us on the weekends. We lived in The Yellowbird for 5 years before moving, but we kept the house for weekend getaways with family and friends. Now I am renting it so others can enjoy it too.

Why Dawn Harrington chose Myrtle Beach

The Yellowbird has all the conveniences of home plus a nice backyard on the lakefront. Enjoy the close proximity of the beach without all the noise and hustle and bustle of the resort. I handle the Saturday 'turnover' myself to make sure you receive a beautiful, clean, organized, and well-maintained home for your vacation.

Beautiful view!!

  • 5 of 5

I took my family there during April break. Dawn is very nice and very responsive to questions and requests. The house has a very nice layout and the view off the deck is just beautiful. It was wonderful to wake up and see that view everyday. The house is located in a peaceful area - not noisy and was very comfortable. While the house is air conditioned, there are ceiling fans in almost every room to ensure guests are comfortable. I would stay at the Yellowbird again!

Would stay here again in a heartbeat

We had a lovely stay at the Yellowbird. Dawn was amazing to work with. Super friendly and responsive when we needed anything. The house is on a beautiful lake where you can fish. Kids loved catching some big bass. The walk to the ocean is nice and you can see it from the deck but are away from all the hustle and bustle. It is a great set up for larger groups. House was also very clean and had everything we needed for the week. The waterpark looks like it will be a blast. Too bad we missed it by a couple of months. Thanks for your hospitality and hope we can come again.

We Love the Yellowbird!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled 18 hours in a van with 7 children to South Carolina! Arriving at our "new home" for two weeks was completely worth the drive. Dawn was very accommodating to our little ones' needs! There was plenty of room for everyone to run around and play! We had dinner on the deck every night where the kids would wait for the ducks and their ducklings to swim by. At night, the older girls would sit on the upper deck and watch the fireworks from the beach front. This has to be the best view at Ocean Lakes! Can't wait to go back!!!! Thanks Dawn, we have so many wonderful memories from our stay that we will forever cherish!
