My wife and I live in Florence, South Carolina and have enjoyed Garden City Beach for 55 years.
The Owner purchased this house in 1990
We chose to locate at Garden City Beach due to the variety of restaurants, shopping, and golf courses coupled with the beautiful beach and working inlet which makes it a paradise.
Excellent location on the beach. We felt we had the area all to ourselves, not overcrowded like other places along the Grand Strand near codos and hotels. The beachside covered and open decks had plenty of space to enjoy a cool breeze or lay out in the sun. Even during one of the afternoon showers the covered porch provided a nice place to sit and relax. The Jones family has plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys available for everyone to have fun in the sand and water.
Lots of living space for our large family. We had a group of 12 stay in the home. 3 couples, 1 adult, 3 teenagers and 2 small children. We did not feel overcrowded at all. The teens enjoyed their bunk area downstairs.
The kitchen amenities are top-notch! Plenty of counter space for preparing meals for our large crowd. Extras include a separate ice-maker and drink refrigerator to keep our beverages of choice cold.
All-in-all this is an excellent place to relax and enjoy a slower pace of life. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for an ocean getaway and hope that we are able to return in the future.
This past August my family and I had the pleasure of staying in the Barrycuda owned by the Jones family. We are from South Carolina and are very familiar with the Garden City Beach area and so we know how lovely the South Carolina beaches are, especially the Garden City Beach. In addition to the wonderful beach, the Jones family has a beautiful and spacious beach house to enjoy.
We found the house perfect, from the location (such a private and quiet area of Garden City) to the amenities. The house is stocked with anything and everything you could possibly imagine needing for your stay, right down to beach chairs, towels and linens, and a fully loaded kitchen. The Jones family thought of everything. They even have a grill for your use. We had wonderful weather and I can't say enough about the porches, both the sun, with the lounge chairs and the shaded with the rockers. With the ocean breeze in our faces, we spent a great deal of time out on the porches. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a beach house in Garden City to relax and enjoy family and fun times. We hope to be able to stay at the Barrycuda again in the future.
My wife and I invited 4 other couple friends to have a getaway vacation together. The house was in a great location. Only 2 blocks from a bar to watch a great sunset over drinks. It was also a very short drive to the local Kroger and Walgreens to pick up food. The private beach access was ideal and we practically had our own private beach section w/ no one to bother us. At night we were able to have our own little beach bonfire. The house had a great setup and everything was ready upon our arrival. The back patio facing the ocean was perfect if you wanted to lay in the sun on the open portion or be outside but out of the sun under the covered portion. It made it really easy to wake up and see the sunrise, too. The storage had plenty of beach chairs and beach games and activities. Everyone agreed that this house provided a well worthwhile vacation for everyone. You won't be disappointed renting this beach house.
