We chose this condo because of the relaxed, beachy feeling we got from looking at the property photos, and we weren't disappointed. We enjoyed the casual atmosphere inspired by the wall decorations and murals. The bedrooms were a nice size, and there was a very nice kitchen with all the amenities, also a stacked washer/dryer. The dryer started up a little noisily and took a couple of cycles to dry clothes, but other than that it was okay. The condo was essentially clean and neat. The owners were very responsive to our inquiries. Everything you need is located within a short driving distance from the Surfside Beach area...restaurants, grocery store, gas station, putt-putt, beach shops, ice cream, etc. The only negative for me with this unit is that it was a "side" unit set back from the more central units, so although it was oceanfront, we did not have a full view of the beach from our balcony. We could only view the beach area immediately in front of us and to the left. We didn't realize that when we reserved the unit, but it really wasn't a deal breaker though because of course we got to see plenty of the beach when we were out there! There was no elevator. That wasn't too bad because we were on the first level, but using stairs is becoming a little problematic for our knees as we get older. Also, fireworks are not allowed at Surfside. All in all, I would definitely recommend this condo as a nice, easy-going, relaxation inspiring place to spend your vacation.
