First person excerpt from ThinkMyrtleBeach.com:
Jeanie Reeder vacationed along the Grand Strand growing up, but she and husband Tom traveled from their Lexington, Ky., home to Oak Island, N.C., with their children for getaways. Expecting to retire to the North Carolina coast, Jeanie and Tom looked for five years without finding the perfect spot.
When a girlfriend of Jeanie’s invited the couple to Barefoot Golf & Resort to see a lot she had just purchased, they visited and ended up buying a neighboring lot that very morning. Says Jeanie, “That was eight years ago, and from that day on we have not looked back. We absolutely love it here! Tom is an avid golfer, and I enjoy the beach. I go every day in the summer.”
