Only millionaires can afford to spend the winter island hopping in the Caribbean Sea, but even middle-class folks, on a tight travel budget, can afford to escape the wintertime blues and spend an extended stay at the beautiful Caribbean Resort & Villas on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront. With winter-rental rates as low as $780 per month, you can realize your dream of living like a king and queen while also missing out on the cold and snow back at home.

Featuring three buildings on one property, the Caribbean Resort offers a wide variety of accommodations to choose from, including 17 different floor plans, so you can find just the right winter nest to comfortably fit your flock of snowbirds. Relax in your recently renovated retreat ranging from standard studios to three-bedroom suites, all just steps away from the peace and tranquility of the Grand Strand's beaches during the offseason.

Wintertime guests can make themselves at home at the Caribbean Resort, at least for a few months. Relax in the Caribbean's clean and comfortable accommodations with private balconies and start every day with a hot cup of coffee while watching the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean. Or you can sleep in late in our cozy beds and rooms, which include modern furniture and fixtures, full kitchens and baths, TVs, phones, free Wi-Fi and other modern conveniences.

But the Caribbean's most impressive amenities are just steps outside your door. Go swimming year round with our indoor pool deck, which includes heated pools, a lazy river, hot tubs, kiddie pools and aquatic play areas for children. Guests can get in a good workout at the state of the art fitness center or have some fun in the arcade. Enjoy on-site dining and refreshments at the world-famous Sea Captain's House, Starbucks Cafe or Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Parlor.

The Caribbean has become a popular gathering spot for snowbirds, and for good reason. Located on the north end of the Myrtle Beach strip, the Caribbean gives guests the opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds – an active social scene for those looking to mix, mingle and make new friends, and a peaceful stretch of coastline with secluded streets and beaches. Whether you are looking to stay active this winter or hibernate and unwind, you will find it at the Caribbean.

To the south of the resort is Myrtle Beach's downtown district, featuring rows of shops, restaurants and attractions. The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, a 1.2-mile wooden walkway that parallels the coast, is your pathway to some of the Grand Strand's best oceanfront dining and shopping, as well as the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, Pier 14, Plyler Park and Second Avenue Pier. Of course, you can also stroll the beach or Ocean Boulevard with very little foot or vehicle traffic.

But if you want to escape to the quiet side of town, you are in the right spot. Located just north of the Caribbean is Myrtle Beach's famed Golden Mile (which is actually about 2 miles long), a stretch of Ocean Boulevard lined with beautiful and historic beach homes and a coastline that has no hotels or businesses. Take a walk down the beach one way and come back on the Boulevard, or vice versa, for a scenic stroll good for the body and the mind. Within 1 mile inland are Broadway at the Beach, the Palace Theatre, Ripley's Aquarium and the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.

Winter rentals are available from November through February and rates vary based on dates and your choice of accommodations. Do yourself a favor this winter and spend it in the milder weather, smaller crowds and classic comfort of the Caribbean Resort & Villas.
