Oceana Resorts celebrates opening of Waikiki Village boutique motel

United States: Oceana Resorts by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, North America’s largest professional manager of vacation rentals, recently celebrated the opening of Waikiki Village in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Waikiki Village features 49 refurbished rooms in addition to a fully redesigned interior lobby and exterior amenities. The developer spearheading the renovation project restored the iconic property’s place on the National Register of Historic Places, by ensuring its original charm was maintained and revitalised.

Oceana Resorts has expanded its existing resort offerings by adding Waikiki Village to its extensive portfolio of managed properties in Myrtle Beach.

The portfolio 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. Waikiki Village is also accepting reservations for stays starting in mid-October.

Tom Prioreschi, partner in the development efforts for Waikiki Village, said: “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.

“We chose to partner with Oceana Resorts based on their understanding of our concept and expertise in the rental management arena,” he added.

Tracey Kundey, executive general manager at Oceana Resorts, said: “When we were contracted to provide management services for this iconic motel, we were thrilled.

“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, said: “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.”
