BIG BALLOON, - THREE-BEDROOM, TWO-BATH BEACH HOUSE WITH AN AWESOME OCEAN VIEW

Garden City Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Big Balloon is a three-bedroom, two-bath beach house located 0.5 miles south of Garden City Pier, across the street from the beach. This home has a fully-equipped kitchen complete with microwave and dishwasher, carpeted screened porch on front (ocean view), washer, dryer, and central heat and air conditioning. Flat screen TV (cable), DVD player, telephone, and Wi-Fi are also provided. Sleeping accommodations include two queen and two twin-sized beds, plus two day beds (one has a pullout trundle bed). Bedroom one has a private bath and the next two bedrooms share a bathroom. No pets. Check-out maid service included. Linens not included. Complete linen and bath package is available for $150, sheets and pillowcases only available for $72. Maximum occupancy: 8

Conveniently located close to some of the best area attractions, Garden City Beach is directly south of Surfside Beach and ends on a peninsula at the mouth of Murrells Inlet. One of the most renowned attractions in Garden City Beach is the Pier at Garden City. Other attractions include Marlin Quay Marina, Gulf Stream Café, Original Sam’s Corner, and Sara J’s Seafood Restaurant

Just south of Garden City Beach is Murrells Inlet, a seaside community that is considered to be the "Seafood Capital of South Carolina", but is also home to some of the nation's best golf courses. Once primarily a fishing village, the town is best known for the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk, a half-mile long boardwalk overlooking a pristine saltmarsh, and the many award-winning seafood and barbecue restaurants along Highway 17 Business in the central business district.

Brookgreen Gardens, a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve built on four former rice plantations, is located slightly south of Murrells Inlet. It features several themed gardens with American figurative sculptures placed in them, trails through several nature reserve ecosystems and the Lowcountry Zoo.

If you’re looking for places to shop, Inlet Square Mall, The Market Common, Coastal Grand, Myrtle Beach Mall, Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, two Tanger shopping outlets, countless strip-malls, and many more shopping facilities are all within an easy drive from Garden City Beach. Looking for some entertainment, take in a show at Alabama Theater, Medieval Times, The Carolina Opry, Pirates Voyage, and Legends in Concert. And don’t forget about Ripley's Aquarium, Alligator Adventure, Hard Rock Cafe, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, and The Pavilion Nostalgia Park.

Other points of interest close by include the waterfront community of Georgetown, the third oldest city in South Carolina and second largest seaport in South Carolina, and historic Conway with its downtown Riverwalk area nestled on the banks of the Waccamaw River. Both towns include fine dining, shopping, and historic sites.

Surfside Beach, Garden City Beach and Murrells Inlet are all close to Waccamaw Hospital and several urgent care facilities.

Whatever your desire, whatever your need, the south strand offers a little something on everyone’s to-do list. We have a variety of restaurants, retail stores, miniature golf, entertainment venues, charter fishing, water sports…and of course, nothing but relaxation.

Reviewer Comments:
We enjoyed staying here very much. I loved the location it was so easy to access the beach for early morning sunrises. I only had a minor complaint about the laundry room. A rug would be nice in that area. Also we would have liked TV in bedroom but wasn't a necessity. The water pressure was awesome loved showers. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evenings. I would stay here again.

The Big Balloon was a great place. My family really enjoyed the place. It's location was fantastic, right off the ocean, probably only 30 steps to the beach, very convenient! There were a few minor issues but I would call the rental company and they would send someone out immediately to fix or check on the problem.

Reviewer Comments:
We stayed at The Big balloon a week in July 2013. When we arrived at the house we were very disappointed that the house had not been cleaned! There was a note on the counter that it had been inspected by the cleaning supervisor with that days date on it. The floor had not even been swept, let alone tub, shower, toilets, sinks! We called maintenance & when the girl got there & swept the floor I told her look at all that dirt! When she mopped the floor, all she did was take a spray bottle & sprayed the floor & mopped, or should I say wiped the floor with a filthy mop! The house had not been touched,only to put the note on the counter that it had been! I had to call again after she left because that is all she did. Another girl had to come to clean the bathrooms,& the tub was so filthy she had to use a Mister Clean eraser! I found a receipt on the dresser from the previous weeks renters where they had been shopping. I have never stayed anywhere that did not clean after people left, only to rent it again & again without cleaning! To say the least I was very disappointed. The house is in a great location, had no problem with it. Only not clean! Don't think I will rent from Garden City Realty again if this is the way they treat guests & expect them to live in someone elses dirt!

The staff at Garden City Realty was helpful and friendly. The location of Big Balloon is fantastic. Would recommend to others while advising that house needs a thorough cleaning...needs vacuumed under beds & cabinets; mattress pads did not look clean if they were; and when we arrived, stove and microwave did not look wiped/cleaned. Maintenance promptly arrived to fix a broken chain on the toilet. Overall, a nice experience...cleanliness of house just needs some lovin' care.

Reviewer Comments:
Loved the location but was amazed that the owners can't put a few bucks into deep cleaning it to get more rental $'s. I had to resweep and mop when I got there. The baseboards and fans were NASTY! Since we had 2 crawling babies I had to clean that along with the nasty intake vent. (They did come the next day to change filter. Door was off in closet (They fixed) They advertised 2 pack and plays. There was one broken one so had to call and get 2 rentals. The washer ONLY washes all our bathing suits and nice clothes shrunk. The kitchen...oh my word. Just need to throw away ALOT of old mismatched stuff and get one new set of pots/pans/dishes.Front porch screen door needs new screen. The 3rd rocking chair FELL APART when we sat in it! The maintenance man called it a death trap! (He hauled away) Like I said...just need some TLC and it would be fine! I may stay there again if these things were fixed but have to admit..not having a half bath that can be accessible w/o going thru a bedroom was a drag. (When you have napping babies)
