We just got home from Myrtle Beach! It’s only about 6 hours from us and the drive is easy and relaxing. We were invited by Vacation Myrtle Beach property group to try out one of their 14 oceanfront properties.

I chose the Captain’s Quarters Resort specifically for the lazy river and Shipwreck Lagoon Kids’ Waterpark. We stayed in an Angle Oceanfront Suite (room 546) which has a small kitchen and separate room and tv for the kids. I loved that we had a view of the pools and the ocean!


For breakfast we headed to Johnny D’s Waffles and Bakery! It’s no surprise that they are rated #1 on TripAdvisor! Definitely a must try if you’re ever in Myrtle Beach. Chef Jamie Saunders invited us to come try it out and we were all blown away! I need this place to become a franchise so they can build one right beside my house asap.


Johnny D’s serves omelettes, waffles, pancakes, French toast, benedicts, skillets, pastries, bagels, and biscuits. They even have breakfast margaritas! If you’re anywhere in the area definitely go check them out! Drive out of your way if you need to! Seriously! You won’t regret it!


After breakfast we spent the day soaking up the sun and swimming at the resort. We ended up getting some rain on our second day so we were thrilled to have the indoor pools and a 232-foot lazy river.

We also decided to check out the Level 6 Entertainment Center. We played some arcade games and tried the 20-lane bowling alley. All guests receive one free game of bowling each day of their stay. My husband beat us at bowling AND air hockey.

We spent a little time playing in the ocean, but the girls said their favorite part was swimming at the resort by far. There were 15 different pools, hot tubs, and lazy rivers to choose from!

For dinner we tried out Loco Gecko which is Captain’s Quarters Resort’s seasonal restaurant that offers burgers, wings, seafood baskets, appetizers, pizza and a kids menu for the little ones. My girls loved their Salty the Shark cups that even came with a shark tooth necklace!
