In August 2022, Wander acquired and listed Wander Surfside Beach, an 8-bed, oceanfront property in Myrtle Beach

Situated on a 1.2 acre plot, the property offers panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. With a capacity to sleep up to 22 guests, the property is one of the few vacation homes in the area with the ability to sleep up to 22 guests

At the time of Wander’s acquisition, the previous owner had booked 126 total nights from May – October 2022 at a blended rate of $1,385/night.

After acquisition, and with the efforts of our in-house team of experienced designers and underwriters, Wander fully outfitted the property with smart home technology, workstations, and an upgraded FF&E package (Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment) across the home, followed by a customized marketing campaign to drive bookings across different key channels.

For the period May - October 2023, Wander booked 133 nights at a blended rate of $2,333/night, or in other words an astounding 68.5% increase in ADR (Average Daily Rate). 

If you’re an existing vacation home operator, or are just looking to make the most of your home, here's your chance to join us and transform your vacation home into a top-performing asset, and unlock all the benefits of being a Wander home.
