Marking Oceana’s 10th managed property in the Myrtle Beach area, the boutique motel features a brand new look that embraces its original iconic charm
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (October 3, 2018) – Oceana Resorts by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, North America’s largest professional manager of vacation rental properties and part of Wyndham Destinations (NYSE:WYND), recently celebrated the grand opening of Waikiki Village in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. As Myrtle Beach readies to welcome travelers following Hurricane Florence, Waikiki Village is accepting reservations now for stays beginning mid-October.
Waikiki Village features 49 beautifully renovated rooms as well as a fully redesigned interior lobby and exterior amenities. The developer spearheading the renovation project honored the iconic property’s place on the National Register of Historic Places, taking great strides to ensure its original charm was maintained and revitalized. Oceana Resorts is excited to expand its existing resort offerings by adding Waikiki Village to its portfolio of managed properties in Myrtle Beach, which includes Harbourgate Marina Club, Bahama Sands Luxury Condominiums, Bay Watch Resort & Conference Center, Holiday Shores Motel, The Patricia Grand, Carolinian Beach Resort, Camelot by the Sea, Ocean Park Resort, and the rental operations of Anderson Ocean Club and Spa.
“Our vision for Waikiki Village was to fully renovate this gem that is on the National Register of Historic Places. Instead of demolishing and erecting yet another sky scraping tower, we elected to capture the charm and character of yesteryear,” said Tom Prioreschi, partner in the development efforts for Waikiki Village. “We chose to partner with Oceana Resorts based on their understanding of our concept and expertise in the rental management arena.”
“When we were contracted to provide management services for this iconic motel, we were thrilled,” said Tracey Kundey, executive general manager, Oceana Resorts. “Providing friendly, quality service is paramount to our success and we look forward to putting our high customer service standards and many years of rental management experience to work, as we welcome Waikiki Village guests for a great experience.”
Interior and exterior designer, Tim McLendon, says, “Waikiki Village is designed to embody the boutique motel concept. Palm Springs is a mecca for mid-century modern design and that was my motivation for the work I’ve done here. The lobby is reminiscent of a living room you would likely have seen in Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin’s home. The exterior areas are tropical and inviting.”
Waikiki Village can be a perfect spot for families, couples and business travelers alike, offering guests modern conveniences with a true touch of nostalgia. To learn more about the property or book a stay, visit www.waikikimyrtlebeach.com.
