The "polar vortex" hasn't spared the Myrtle Beach area its wintry embrace. Heaters all across the Grand Strand have been working overtime today as residents and visitors dug out those long-lost winter coats before braving the elements.

Fortunately, forecasters are saying the weather should improve over the next few days and we'll be back to the more pleasant temperatures we're accustomed to during the winter months.

So, what could be a better way to take your mind off the cold than by entering for a chance to win a seven-night stay in a luxurious oceanfront beach house?

This home-away-from home is referred to as "The Ritz," and with these accommodations, it's easy to see why. There are seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a half bath, a private walkway to the beach, three oceanfront master suites with Jacuzzis, a wet bar and more.

Yes, with all this space, you can fit up to 20 people comfortably.

Think about it; a one-of-a-kind vacation getaway in your very own beach house. And you get to spend it with 20 of your closest family members and friends.

See? You're not even thinking about those chilly conditions outside anymore, are you?
