About Debi Kalaritis

I share Elvis' birthday (January 8) and celebrated my 50th (in 2007) with a theme party and my husband dressed as Elvis!

I worked in high tech until I survived breast cancer in 2001; now I enjoy renting my two condos in Murrells Inlet, Aquarius and, in partnership with my brother, Desert Dolphin in Aruba.

Debi Kalaritis purchased this house in 2002

Why Debi Kalaritis chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

SUNSET on the INLET! (Especially beautiful viewed from our large back sundeck and SUNRISE on the OCEAN viewed from the front landing!)

BEACH ACCESS directly across the street!

PET FRIENDLY—beach and house!

What makes this house unique

Second row to BOTH the Ocean and Murrells Inlet!

Plenty of Parking!

Regulation Sand Volleyball Court and Horseshoe Pits!

NO high-rises! (The beach is not crowded and there are NO afternoon shadows on the sand!)

We would like to stay two weeks next year.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time as always, we never want to leave! The baby absolutely loved the beach. We couldn't keep him out of the water. Haha! I'm curious to see if he'll still be as fearless next year when it comes to the ocean.

A woman approached us on the beach when we had Ivan out and asked us where we stayed. She said that she had a Golden Retriever that she would love to be able to bring but hadn't been able to find a house that would allow her to bring him. I told her about you and the house and walked her up to show her the outside of the house. So I hope she gives you a call; she seemed pretty excited about it. By the way, I loved the new outdoor patio furniture that you had!!

We would like to stay two weeks next year.

Comfortable family friendly house.

  • 4 of 5

The house was great for our family - 6 adults, 3 children and 3 doggies. We were able to relax, enjoying both indoor and outdoor spaces. It was great for the children to have their own room separate from the adult couples. There was sufficient space for our three dogs as well. Having two refrigerators was a pleasant surprise and great for storing extras.

It was very important to us to be close to the beach and on a quiet beach. This house is in a perfect location, just across the street from the beach very close to a public access walkway.

Despite the fact that it rained a fair amount during our week we had a great time. Due to the rain there were a few roof leaks that became evident which we reported to the owner.

This house is not for you if everything in your world needs to be perfect and the most current. In addition to the roof/ceiling repairs needed some of the furniture and mattresses should probably be replaced simply due to normal wear and age.

Overall, we had a great time, relaxing and fun for a family vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you Judi; I really appreciate you letting me know about the roof leaks, I was completely unaware of it and I can't fix it if I don't know about it. And, I fully understand your comments; I think I told you that I had planned not to rent Aquarius this summer. I had planned some reno and deco but my "regular" guests were very upset so I postponed the plans until the end of the season. I am happy you enjoyed the location and had a great visit despite the rain. Happy Vacationing! Debi

Will Definitely Return

  • 5 of 5

My wife and kids recently moved to Myrtle Beach, but our place is too small to host a family gathering. This Thanksgiving is our first without my grandmother, and my family from North GA wanted to come down here to spend the week together. We love the Garden City area so we went in search. I'm so THANKFUL I found this place. The location is superb, the place is very nice with plenty of things to do, and the most impressive thing to me was how wonderful the owner was to work with! Absolutely amazing! She truly wants you to enjoy your vacation (and your four legged family member). I could not have asked for a better experience! I would recommend this property to anyone who truly wants to relax and enjoy their stay.

Thanks so much Debi for allowing my family to have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
