Property Management

We at EWA realize that your property is a valuable investment and we are committed to providing you the most professional management services available.

If you are looking for a small company to manage your property without the distractions of weekly, vacation rentals or HOA management then EWA Rentals is the company for you. We manage only long term rentals, which affords us the opportunity to give you the best service possible. Our long-term management services are designed for property owners who wish to rent their home or condo for three months or longer, either furnished or unfurnished. We are responsible for representing your best interests in all operations and decisions affecting your property: maintenance, rentals, and marketing.


We appreciate this opportunity to present our Property Management Program to you.


If you have a rental property in the North Myrtle Beach area or Ocean Forest section of Myrtle Beach and would like to receive a steady income on a long term basis our property management program is for you. EWA Rentals receives 10% commission on each month’s rent. There is no fee if the rental property is vacant and unlike other management companies, EWA Rentals has no additional fees to cover advertising or lease renewal. A fee is charged for tenant transitions on furnished rentals only.
