About Bob and Janet Arnold

We have vacationed with our family in this area for several years. We built this house in June 2006 to accommodate our growing family. We love the beach and enjoy walking, tennis, and golfing. We are relief pharmacists and live in upstate SC in Anderson. When we are not working, we escape to the beach for fun, food, and relaxing as well as performing maintenance checks and improvements on our house. We try to have the house in excellent condition for each guest and the fully equipped kitchen allows you to cook for family and friends. We love relaxing in the hot tub at the end of the day and in the evening under the moonlight and stars. We hope you will visit our house each year and make more Footprints in the Sand.

Bob and Janet Arnold

Bob and Janet Arnold purchased this house in 2006

Why Bob and Janet Arnold chose Garden City Beach

The Garden City beach area is mainly houses so the beach is very quiet and and offers lots of space for relaxing and playing. The view from the porches on the house is breathtaking as you can see for miles up and down the beach. The sunrises on the ocean are fantastic and you can view sunsets on the marsh from the porch areas.

What makes this house unique

The oceanfront pool, kiddie pool, hot tub, and outdoor kitchen are great for relaxing and grilling by the ocean. If you like to fish, there is a nearby marina which also has a great restaurant. The grocery stores and restaurant row are a short drive away. We try to provide a memorable vacation experience and we are always open for comments and suggestions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just got home and we ALL had a great time! Nobody wanted to leave. Footprints In the Sand was just perfect for us -- the sunrises were beautiful -- the beach was pretty much to ourselves -- the heated pool was a treat for the grandchildren -- the kitchen was stocked wonderfully -- the decor inside was tastefully done -- yard well maintained -- the porches and decks were great for drinking early morning coffee and reading -- I could go on and on! Thanks for sharing your home with us. (When we got to the house I noticed large scratches on the floor in the dwnst bedroom with 2 beds. Looks like someone moved the bed frames and scratched the floor. I immediately called the office to let them know, as I didn't want them to think we did it.) THANKS AGAIN!!

Fantastic beach house near marina and pier

  • 5 of 5
Our family loved this house which has a spectacular location and a marvelous beach. The house was well maintained and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need and more. We had plenty of room for our family and we enjoyed the oceanfront porches in the swing and rockers. The fishing in the surf was great. The pictures on the web page don't begin to reflect the beauty of this home. The owners were attentive to our needs and called to check in during our stay. We plan to return again for another outstanding vacation at this beach home!

We're half way through our vacation at Footprints in the Sand and are already sad to be thinking about leaving the house. It's beautiful, well decorated, with extremely well stocked kitchen and an open floor plan. We have 18 people in the house and another 8 in the house next door. We've all spent our days at the pool, on the beach and patio. It's been great because the kids are in the pool all day, the grandparents can relax in the rocking chairs on the deck and anyone can still take an afternoon nap without being disturbed. We've taken long walks on the Beach morning and night. My brother is an Executive Chef and has loved the kitchen. Janet is great to work with and extremely helpful. We can't wait to come back and are thankful for our time together as a family at Footprints in the Sand!

Conley Family Vacation--June 2012

  • 5 of 5
This property is absolutely wonderful!!! Everything is well maintaned and exactly as presented in the listing--maybe even better. Bob and Janet are wonderful people to work with. The location is excellent!! I honestly cannot say enough good things about this property and our vacation week. We had twenty four family members ranging in age from 85 years old to 3 months old (six of them were seven or younger.) There was plenty of space, both inside and outside, for everyone. The pool and hot tub were enjoyed all day everyday (and the pool service comes 3 times per week). The ocean side decks and patios were used from early morning until late night. There was plenty of outdoor seating on the decks and in the pool/patio area. My personal favorite was the swing and the glider Adirondack chairs. I heard several people comment about how comfortable the beds were. The kitchen was large and extremely well stocked with cookware, dishes, glasses, silverware, bowls, pitchers, appliances etc. There is plenty of space for multiple people to work in the kitchen, and it is so open you can still ivisit with the folks in the dining area and living room. For our family members who flew from California and Indiana, the airport was an easy drive away. In addition to this wonderful property and terrific owners, we were blessed with perfect sunny days in the 80's. I would definintely recommend this property! I hope we get the opportunity to vacaction here again! Thanks to Bob and janet for allowing us the rent their beach home!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words! We are delighted to know that our beach home helped you and your family make memories that will last a lifetime. We are always working to make Footprints feel like your home away from home. God has truly blessed us, and we're thankful to be able to share our blessings with you. We'll gladly set aside a special time for your next vacation so that your family can make more "Footprints in the Sand".

We have just returned from our 2nd Thanksgiving family reunion in this amazing house. I can't say enough about how wonderful everything is! We are so impressed by the owners' attention to detail and the numerous amenities offered. We have been renting in the Grand Strand area for about 11 years, and this home is, by far, the best! We'll be back!

This house is undescribable! Upon our arrival, jaws were dropped. This house has everything that you would possibly ever need! Great stocked kitchen...from waffle maker to crock pot. Outstanding experience in this house. Very decorative but with a personal touch..We are sorry that we could not book for next year.. it was already taken. Thank you for letting us experience "Footprints in the Sand"!!!
