About Karen Soper

We live in Greenville, SC. We have always loved going to the beach especially the South Carolina beaches. The ocean water is warmer there than the North Carolina beaches and the season is longer. We love to hang out on the beach, play ladder golf, body-surf in the waves and bask in the warm rays of the sun while listening to the ocean waves lapping the shore. There is just something about planting your chair and looking out at the ocean that makes all your stress melt away.

Karen Soper purchased this house in 2009

Why Karen Soper chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

This property caught our eye for several reasons: It's close proximity to the ocean, the spacious and modern design of the house, the sleeping arrangements and the fact that it is located in Garden City Beach. Garden City is a family centered beach which is a hop skip and a jump to Murrells Inlet, famous for its seafood and close to all the activities that Myrtle Beach has to offer! Best of all worlds!

What makes this house unique

This house is well maintained, professionally decorated and is intentionally set up for your entertainment and enjoyment. So close to the beach without having to pay the high rates for being that close! Check out our 5 star ratings! You won't be disappointed.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow, we just returned home after a weeks vacation spent at the Chill-Inn. Best vacation ever! The house was clean and very spacious. The decks were a great place to hang out when you weren't at the beach or in the pool. The kitchen was not lacking anything. The pool was ideal for our three small children, but not too small because everyone enjoyed it! I honestly can't pick my favorite part. The entire experience was so easy from start to finish! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy this beautiful home and for being so easy to do business with!! We hope to come again next year!!

Best Vacation House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

The Chill Inn is one of the best rentals we have ever stayed in! The house comfortably slept all 12 adults! The location is top notch, it is a short 5 minute walk to the beach, a 10 minute drive to Murrells Inlet for great seafood, and close to several grocery stores and other restaurants! We choose to rent the golf cart which came in handy, every day we loaded our coolers and chairs and drove it down there - no one had to work hard on this beach trip!

The house is very charming, with plenty of room to all sit down for dinner, sit around, play games and relax. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. When we arrived we found the house to be extremely clean and it was exactly how it was described to us - we can't wait to rent this house again! Karen is an excellent person to rent from - she is very responsive, and makes the rental process a breeze!!!!

Thank you for the wonderful time!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved loved loved staying in this home for the week my group and I stayed here. Karen was an amazing person to work with. She worked with the fact that our group was under 25 and that we were a group of friends. The home itself was absolutely gorgeous too!!!!! The pictures honestly don't do the house justice because it's soooo much pretty in person. The house is literally a minute, maybe not even from the beach as well. It was amazing. Anything we needed during the week, all we had to do was either call or email Karen and she was more than willing to help out. Also, when we got to the home, there were brochures and different things listed by the owner for us to do for fun! I would stay in this house or with this owner if I was planning anther trip any day! I recommend this to everyone honestly! :)

Garden City Beach is 8 miles south of Myrtle Beach and about 1 mile south of Surfside Beach. It is a quiet, family oriented beach. It has a very nice pier with restaurants, ice cream, fishing, and bands at night.
