About Lockie Hunter

I am a southern gal, raised in the mountains of Tennessee. My husband is from Maine, but our family of four now lives in Asheville, North Carolina, tucked in the hills. I am a professor of writing and literature at a local college, while my husband is a software guy. Our two children love placing their toes in the sand, and we try to get to the beach any time our place is not rented.

Lockie Hunter purchased this condo in 1980

Why Lockie Hunter chose Garden City Beach

This beach condo was first purchased by my mom and dad to be a family beach place to go since we had moved from Tennessee to Boston in the 1970s. We missed the South Carolina beaches! I remember looking at the blueprints for the building as a ten-year-old, my heart full of excitement. We were one of the first to buy and we picked the exact unit we wanted, looking out at both the pool and ocean beyond. Many years later, as an adult, my parents sold it to me, and now my family of 4 can create their own memories of time at Garden City Beach. Since we have owned the condo since it was built we literally have renters who have been coming down for over 20 years. Many memories have been made here and we hope that you, too, will cherish the place as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Location is key, and the place boasts amazing views, and is truly right on the beach! Our porch overlooks the ocean and has a large table with seating for 5 and is perfect for your morning coffee, lunch, or evening sunset dinner. Our family has been coming here since the kids were babies. It is a very family-friendly beach! Our unit overlooks both the pool and ocean.

In 2016 we installed all new hdtv's in each bedroom. The living room boasts a 40" HDTV, the quilt room has a 32" hdtv while the master and twin room both boast countertop hdtvs. We take great care in all the details of the place, from the hand-picked seagull dishes to the paintings on the wall.

Our condo is very well equipped, so much so that many folks come down for the winter and stay for a couple of months! The kitchen is a working kitchen with all stainless steel appliances, and a large granite counter-top, and plenty of pots and pans and cookware.

We are also situated between 2 piers, the Garden city pier and the Surfside pier, both walkable distances.

Nearby Murrells Inlet is a working fishing village, dubbed the seafood capital of South Carolina. Here you will find amazing seafood places serving up lunch and dinner on a scenic waterway called the "marshwalk". You can also explore the salt marsh on an ecology tour or a parasail ride, a jet ski, kayak canoe, eco, dolphin or adventure tour, or explore Wacca Wache, which is a freshwater marina.

Or, you may opt for the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach, but then return home to our quieter family-focused Garden City Beach.

The master bedroom has amazing ocean views and sliding glass doors that open directly onto the deck. I love listening to the ocean while relaxing in bed! Renters are "wowed" by our kitchen. It is truly a working kitchen and has upgraded appliances and plenty of cookware. fully equipped granite kitchen with all the fixings - blender, microwave, coffee maker and more.There is a recipe box where renters share their favorites, so bring one to add to the collection! 4 new hdtvs (including 1 in each bedroom). In the living room, there is a couch that folds out into a full bed. So, the entire unit can comfortably sleep 8! Entertainment Center includes LCD TV, VCR, DVD player, premium cable and high speed WiFi. Dining area that seats 6 plus 2 bar-stools for casual kitchen bar dining. Living areas all new hardwood floors. Private balcony overlooking the ocean and the pool. Private pool for guests of Seamaster only. Ample parking under the building and an overflow lot next door.

Relaxation At It's Best-June 2017

  • 5 of 5

The Hunter's Condo did not disappoint. My husband and I vacationed with my parents and one of our granddaughters. This condo was perfect for the 5 of us and could have comfortably handled 8, with the pull out sofa. The Condo is just as it is represented on website. The view of the pool and ocean is wonderful from this 1st floor unit. Proximity to the elevator and steps, from the condo to the pool and the beach could not have been better!! Very easy to carry pool toys and beach chairs, etc. from the lower level storage unit to the pool and beach. The pool is well appointed with many lounge chairs and was clean and maintained daily.

The air conditioning in the condo was superb and the mattresses on both queen beds were great! We slept very well each night. Our 5 year old granddaughter loved her stay in the "fish" room. The decor is so cute and she just loved snuggling up with her stuffed animals, with her own tv in her room. When we left, she said "goodbye" to all of the wonderful fish hanging on the walls. :) The kitchen is great and having 3 bathrooms is wonderful too.

There is a nice Walmart just a little over a mile from the condo, just South on Business Route 17. Great for picking up groceries.

If you are looking for relaxation, this is the place to go. I can't say enough good things about our vacation experience. We will most definitely return to this condo . . hopefully next June!!

Wonderful View!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much - the view was beautiful and since we don't live near any oceans we really appreciated it! The condo had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We were able to easily tour Myrtle Beach and Murrell's Inlet from our location. We would definitely recommend!
