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 Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

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.

Notes:

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.

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!

Wonderful place for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this beautiful condo. Wonderful setting and the size was perfect for our three-family group. Everyone had their own separate bedroom and bath and the space was roomy enough that we never felt cramped (especially when the 30+ degree weather kept us indoors). The beach is beautiful and Garden City was the perfect spot... quiet, convenient and low-key. One suggestion --- we didn't know until we had booked this unit that bedding and towels are not provided (first time we have encountered this with a vacation rental). Wasn't a problem since one of our group was driving in but would have been a hardship for the rest of us who flew. Other than that one issue.... it was perfect. Lockie is a delight to work with and everything went off without a hitch!!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing long weekend in Garden City! We were in town to get some wedding appointments done for my wedding coming up in September and it was just perfect! Garden City is a great location to everything we needed in Merrells Inlet & Pawleys Island with a quiet get away to go home to. The view was outstanding from the living-room and master bedroom. Great sunsets just as described by the owners and I loved how much the tide would come up. It was breath taking! This condo offered everything you would need for a beach getaway. And I cannot say enough about how nice the owners are. The letter in the mail covered anything and everything you needed to know about the condo and the area of Garden City. I found it so welcoming and informative. And if we needed anything at all, they were there for us. Great experience! Highly recommend! xo

Owner's Response: Hello, So glad you enjoyed your time with us! We agree that the view is outstanding and we also love sitting on the deck watching the waves and just relaxing or enjoying a dynamite sunset. I wish you so much joy in your upcoming wedding and marriage! We were happy to be a small part of the excitement of the planning. I hope your special day is filled with love and laughter!

Vacation at Garden City

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was excellent, everything was just as advertised. We had never stayed at Garden City before this stay and we loved it. Will never stay at Myrtle Beach again. Peaceful and everyone was super nice! Doing laundry was easy, just around corner of room. This area reminds me of Nantucket Island with all the shops and golf carts. Thank you for allowing us to use your summer home!
