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

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.

Yearly Vacation Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Been staying here for at least 6 years or so. The condo is clean and plenty of room. Sitting on the deck in the evening over looking the pool and ocean is so relaxing and peaceful. Zak and Lockie are just a phone call away if anything sure occur. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time vacationing in South Carolina. The location of this condo was great. Getting around to all the attractions was fairly simple. Wonderful time, beautiful weather, great memories! The condo was beautifully decorated and had everything that we needed. Beds were comfortable and the condo was clean. Pool was cleaned regularly and was very refreshing. The beach was only steps away from the pool! Watched the tides come in and out, it was amazing. You couldn't ask for more.

One of the best vacations ever!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation at this condo. The three bed/three bath set up was perfect for us. The location is great. Beach views are breathtaking. Parking was tough, but the overflowing lot was fine. Lockie and Zach Hunter are great to deal with. Communication between us could not have been better. This is a fine place to stay!!

Beautiful view, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (5 adults, 2 teenagers) really enjoyed the Hunter' s Hideaway condo at Seamaster. We had the best view!! The condo had everything we needed. It was very clean and spacious. The grocery is less than 5 minutes away (Kroger, Wal-Mart, food lion, take your pick). Just a few minutes drive from Myrtle Beach or Murrells Inlet for some attractions or good restaurants. The Hunters were great at communicating the entire time. We would definitely return to this location in the future!!
