About Kathleen Uhl
Our family lives in Beacon Falls Connecticut. We love spending time at our Oceanside Village beach home in beautiful Surfside Beach, South Carolina. We also enjoy meeting and talking with our many wonderful renters!
Kathleen Uhl purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Kathleen Uhl chose Garden City
Our beach home is clean, comfortable and spacious. It's in a great location in Oceanside Village, on a quiet cul de sac, close to the beach and the indoor heated pool. The yard is perfect for relaxing, fishing in the pond and watching the turtles, swans and other birds in the pond.
What makes this Cottage unique
Fish right out your front door. Relax under the big tree at the pond or just watch the beautiful swans and ducks from the 4 season porch or from the yard.

The property was a great location. I was disappointed in the lack of cleanliness of the rental. We had a toddler with us. We were not there 30 minutes and the baby's feet were black from the floor. The carpet was dirty and sticky in the bedrooms. The mattress pad in the larger room was dirty and a set of the queen sheets was stained and full of hair all on them. The quilts on the beds were stained. The small pillows on the flower couch had old blood stains. The rental was left a lot cleaner than it was when we had got to the rental. It was nice to have the use of a golf cart.
I am so disappointed these things were not brought to my attention. I communicate clearly with all my guests to please call me right away with any concern. Had I been contacted, I would have seen to it immediately that everything was taken care of. Since I never heard from this renter, I assumed all was well. I do my best to make every guests stay the best it could be.
It was very nice.
We really enjoy are stay. The location was close to the beach.
After agonizing over Hurricane Florence the six of us packed up the car and started the ten hour drive not sure what to expect. Without problems we arrived safely and had a wonderful vacation. Great weather, Perfect location,comfy and cozy accommodations. Can’t wait to do it again next year
Good location, needed repairs bad though
The location was awesome and the amenities in the surrounding area were great (love the pool!!) The house on the other hand was very moldy smelling and there were several spots in the house that needed repairs including the golf cart (which the home owner did have notes apologizing for.) I think that this home would be a great home to a couple of families wanting to share memories together over the summer once the repairs have been done. Definitely check out Conch Cafe - great Shea crab soup!!
Thank you David, all repairs are done!
In response to this review, I'd like to mention that on the third day of his stay, I received an email letting me know that the seat on the golf cart came unsecured. I contacted him right away and offered to have my golf cart repair guy fix it. He said the seat was secure enough to still use so he choose to keep using the golf cart through the week so not to lose a days use of it.
As for the other repairs, an apology note was left explaining the tape on the bedroom wall and the patch on the kitchen floor. Quite a
rowdy family had rented the week prior and caused some damage. Unfortunately there was not enough time on Saturday, in between renters for our carpenter to do a complete repair.
As for the musty smell, shortly after Davids stay we found that our refrigerator had been leaking slowly and causing damage to the kitchen floor. The wet insulation underneath has been removed, the sub floor replaced and we have a new refrigerator! We keep up with all maintenance and repairs and are always making improvements. :)
Close to Beach and Cozy
This was our first time in the community. Home was close to the beach and other neighborhood amenities. Golf cart worked out great for getting to the beach. Rooms were a good size. Bathrooms and kitchen were updated. Worked well for a large family.
Really enjoyed our stay!
