Overview

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 Cafe, 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 salt marsh, 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 of course, nothing but relaxation.

The location and view were great. Setting on the porch listening to the waves and looking at the water was awesome. The home while being older was very functional(nice kitchen)and decorated in great taste. The only thing that made you realize you were in a older home was the baths. The short distance to the beach and pier was perfect for managing our small children in our party.

Reviewer Comments:

Check-in and out was very quick, I did appreciate that. The only complaint I have really is the cleanliness of the property. The kids feet were nasty from going barefoot inside the house, no telling when the last time the place had been mopped as I wiped a small area up with some cleaner in the kitchen, it immediately turned the paper towels black. Bathrooms could have also been cleaner, the baseboards and carpets really need a good cleaning. For the price if the property, a good once over is definitely in order. Could also use some paint!! Location was very convenient to the beach, so that was the best part. Not sure I would stay at this property again/or recommend to anyone, would like something a little more clean/updated but there is not a "not sure" option on the last question so I just put yes. Hopefully it will get a good cleaning!!!

We had a wonderful time at Big Balloon. The view of the ocean from the front porch is awesome! This was the next best thing to ocean front.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was nice however not well equipped. There was only one tv and it was small without a dvd player. Also, dresser and night stand drawers contained owners items. Under one of the beds is a framed picture.

Last comment is regarding the cleanliness. Under the kitchen sink was nasty. A better job was needed in vacuming the bed rooms.
