Vacation Homeowners and Vacant Long Term Homeowners

Southern Coast Vacations and Rentals is asking for your help. Due to the wildfire, thousands of Horry County residents have been asked to vacate their property. Many of them are my personal friends and they have had to leave their homes until the wildfire is contained.

I am asking you to donate your property to these residents for a few days until we can move them home. Southern Coast Vacations will donate all the linens and towels. The staff and I will donate our time and personally clean your unit. We appreciate your generosity during this tough time.

Please call our office or email us at and let us know if you are able to donate a few days.

Several of you have already opened your second homes to our community and we really appreciate it. Please keep all of our evacuees in your thoughts and prayers.

Barefoot Resort/Highway 90 Homeowners

If you are a homeowner at Barefoot Resort or at a development on Highway 90 and have questions concerning the brush fire please feel free to call the Southern Coast office at 1-800-978-4988. Currently the area from Highway 22 to the new Main Street Connector is being evacuated. This includes the Barefoot Resort area. We are currently calling all tenants in these areas to offer assistance. We will post updates as new information is released. We will contact the homeowners of any properties that have fire or smoke damage.

Property Business Licenses

Property Business Licenses:

All vacation property owners are required to have a business license to rent out their property on a weekly or monthly basis. Depending on where your property is located determines the amount of the fees and when they are due. All fees are based upon the previous year’s gross rental income or if you have not rented for a full year, the amount is based upon an estimate of your gross rentals for the upcoming full year.

As a service to you, Southern Coast Vacations will file the application and pay the fees upfront for you and bill your statement accordingly.

The City of North Myrtle Beach is now in the process of mailing all owners the applications or fees at this time. The license must be renewed prior to April 30th to avoid any late fees.

The City of Myrtle Beach mails out their renewals in May and the fees are due by June 30th.

If you have already taken care of your business license fees or wish to pay them directly, please contact our accounting office at 843-663-6063 or email me at so that we will take you off our list. If we do not hear from you we will go ahead and file the paperwork and bill accordingly.
