About Latonya Olivier

Owners are professional consultants who travel. Live in home when not traveling and home is not rented. Very friendly and accommodating to quality renters.

Latonya Olivier purchased this house in 2009

Why Latonya Olivier chose Surfside Beach

Surfside is still a relatively undiscovered gem. Very laid back atmosphere without the hustle and bustle of more high profile beaches. Beautifully maintained beaches and friendly residents!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great property, clean and open living area. We loved the privacy and floor plan and the house is situated on the quieter and cleaner side of the beach. The deck was great and very open (be weary of rocking chair legs that we were constantly & painfully tripping over but only a minor annoyance). We didn't know that we could get drinking water from the rental office so keep that in mind if you stay here. Would definitely consider staying here again!

Beach House Family Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We recently enjoy a wonderful family weekend at this beach house.- six adult couples, two teenagers & two young children. The configuration of this place is really great and enabled us all to be together - no matter whether we were cooking, eating or playing games. The first floor is a very large kitchen-dining-game-sitting room and is fantastic! The separate working areas in the kitchen plus the big island made it possible to lots of us to all be working (and talking) together. The kitchen is well stocked including decent wine glasses, plenty of dishes, platters, bowls, cups and utensils. Having a washer and dryer in the adjacent utility room & half bath was a plus too. Also – the downstairs Master Bathroom opens not only to the kitchen but also to the kitchen area – so people don’t have to be running upstairs when nature calls.

When we arrived we discovered that the upstairs a/c wasn't working to capacity. I called caretaker,Tammy, and she arrived within a very short time & immediately contacted an a/c repair man who came out and fixed the unit in short order.

Two of the couples in upstairs bedrooms did comment that their beds were not as comfortable as they would have liked, but all in all they were still pleased with the facilities. We were in the downstairs bedroom and we slept very well – in fact better than in our own bed at home and it was delightful to be able to open the door to the deck and listen to the surf!

We wouldn't hesitate to rent this place again for future family gatherings.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great get together at this beautiful home. It is roomy with lots of space both inside and out. Right on the beach so can't be beat for access.

The owner is really good about giving information for planning. We found it clean, well maintained and very convenient. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a family friendly location.

great location, house needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

This location can't be beat. The house is right next to the beach access, so you can be on the beach 30 seconds after walking out the front door. The house is also about a mile from the 332 bridge, so you don't need to drive very far once you get on the island. The deck was spacious with an excellent view. It was nice to be able to see your group on the beach with out having to leave the house.

However, the house interior is not in very good condition. Everything is mostly functional, but in need of replacement. For example: plumbing fixtures are rusted out, dressers are falling over, one bunk bed mattress is worn to the point where it feels like you are sleeping on a ladder. Also, the linens and bedding were old, and smelled their age. Luckily we brought extra blankets , and our group was small enough that everyone was able to find a decent bed.

These issues weren't bad enough to put a damper on the weekend, but we might consider another property for our next Surfside visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review as well as your personal note to me about some items that needed addressing. The specific ones about the bunk mattress and dressers needing attention were immediately addressed and, as we mentioned, the plumbing fixtures which, unfortunately, suffer regularly due to the difficult water conditions and the proximity to the salt-laden breezes from the beach will be addressed again at the end of the season as we always do. Interestingly, the linens and other bedding were actually purchased in June and our next renters even commented on how nice the bedding was compared to what they had last year. Not sure what happened there as it was the exact same bedding for them other than having been laundered as we do after each renter, but we will certainly check on that as well when we are there in a couple of weeks. We take the information we receive from our guests very seriously and hope you check us out again if you come to Surfside Beach -- you can always arrange to view our home in advance if you would like to confirm our continued commitment to keeping our home (where we stay many months of the year) in excellent condition.

We Will Return

  • 5 of 5

This is the best experience we have every had on Surfside Beach. You couldn't get any closer to the beach with great access and you couldn't ask for better owner to work with. We had a couple of odd requests, but they were no problem for her. The house gave us privacy when we needed it and plenty of room to play cards and games when we weren't on the beach.
