Penthouse Palace at Surfmaster, Huge Balcony, Private Hot Tub

You've earned a really first class vacation, and what could be more luxurious than an ocean front penthouse with a private hot tub? If you're a sun worshiper, paradise is here, on an 850 square foot open deck. Sunrise, sunset, and all day sunshine can be enjoyed from this large open well furnished space. Relax in your own private hot tub while viewing the endless horizon.

Inside, the spacious, beautifully furnished rooms provide plenty of space for everyone to spread out, relax and enjoy vacation. Every room is extra large with lots of comfortable furniture. The sofa sleeper and dual recliner with cup holders are brand new! The living and dining area is surrounded by sweeping floor to ceiling windows so that you can enjoy the view almost as well indoors as out on the deck. An elaborate combination of window tinting and custom blinds make it easy to control light and heat in the spacious living area.

The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances. The stove was replaced with a new ceramic top range along with the refrigerator just before Labor Day. The dishwasher and washer/dryer appliances were replaced in December, 2013. Cabinets are well stocked with cookware, dishes, glasses and tableware. Broad counter tops have space for extensive food preparation. The dining table has space for everyone, there is a bar and wall mounted flat screen TV in the living room for entertainment.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, its own private balcony, huge closets, and a dressing area separate from the bathroom. There are TVs in all the bedrooms. The second bedroom also has a king size bed, and a sliding door to the balcony and hot tub. The third bedroom has a king size bed. There are two roll away beds in addition to the sofa sleeper. All bedrooms have direct access to full bathrooms, with large closets and dressers for plenty of storage. There is, of course, WiFi internet access throughout the condo. There are two parking spaces per unit at Surfmaster.

Dogs are not permitted on the beach between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm during the period of May 15 to September 15.

Garden City is perfect for a family vacation, away from the traffic and crowds, but still a short drive to attractions, and over 100 excellent golf courses. The outstanding Conch Cafe is a short walk. The Garden City Beach pier, restaurants and shops are about a mile south from Surfmaster. The Surfside Beach pier, restaurants, bars and shopping are 1.5 miles north. Just a short drive south is the Murrell's Inlet "Restaurant Row", which boasts the best seafood in South Carolina. Luxury shopping and dining are a few minutes north in the Market Commons area. All the attractions, dining and shopping of Broadway at the Beach, Coastal Grand, and the Myrtle Beach downtown boardwalk are just a bit further north. For a unique cultural experience, Brookgreen Gardens displays one of the world's largest collections of sculpture by American artists in a lush outdoor setting, along with a zoo and butterfly garden. It's just a few minutes south, don't miss it.

When you've earned the first class beach vacation, experience it with penthouse privacy, luxury and space. This is your vacation home.

Will stay again

  • 4 of 5

A bit nervous when I booked due to some of the reviews, but we were very pleased and will stay there again. Checking in and out was easy and the staff was friendly! Yes the condo is a bit dated, but VERY clean upon arrival. We had 6 people there for Christmas and no complaints about space. Patio space, hot tub and views....AMAZING!

It was a cold/rainy week and the heat went out, so we followed instructions on reporting the problem. The repair man came and fixed the problem.....until it went out again. Repair man called again and my husband contacted owner. The owner himself came to condo to check on issue. Heat was restored and the last day there was not ruined!

Although the weather and heat didn't cooperate, we had a fantastic family week at the beach! Look forward to next visit!

As good as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Surfmaster L was all that my family of 4 could have asked for. I read previous reviews, and was concerned that we may have some issues with plumbing or appliances. I have to tell you, our stay was flawless. We had the best time each evening sitting in the hot tub and talking. So rare to get time like that with your kids any more. Thus is a place we will stay again. Check in was a snap. Plenty of covered parking. Incredible views. Comfortable beds. I could keep going. I would recommend Penthouse L to anyone.

Penthouse J awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Sherry, Rick and staff were awesome. This was the most relaxing and comfortable stay in Garden City in 20 years of vacationing here. We are already making plans for next year. Perfect condo and service in every way. Sherries tip on Gulf Stream café was spot on. Thanks for everything.

Penthouse L

  • 1 of 5

Unit not maintained up to standard. Toilets needed maintenance, sinks wouldn't drain properly, washing machine flooded all week to the point it was not usable (extremely inconvenient) and dishwasher had major issues (would not dispense soap). Deck was great! Unit very outdated. Would not recommend to anyone . I trip staff excellent and did the best they could to help.

Surfmaster Penthouse L

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this place was amazing. Exactly as advertised, but some simple improvements would make this a 5 star stay.

The good:

Bedrooms are a good size. we had the 2 rollaway beds in use and set up in the second bedroom and did not feel too cramped, master was huge. King beds in all 3 bedrooms was very nice.

The balcony was amazing. HUGE! Amazing panoramic views of not only the ocean, but the marsh just to the south. Furniture on the balcony was very solid and a wonderful choice.

Common living area was large enough to not feel cramped with 5 adults and 2 children. The floor to ceiling windows were great. The movie collection, although not used due to great weather all week, would have been a huge bonus if the weather turned sour.

Beach Toys! The closet of beach toys/chairs/etc. was an added bonus for sure, and wish it was advertised, as we wouldn't have brought as much sand toys for our children if we knew we would have this.

Super Clean upon arrival.

The grounds were great, pools were very nice, as well as the beach access, no true dunes to get over. you are right on the beach. The hot tub on the balcony was a nice extra as well.

Could be improved:

Would like to see a keyless entry. This would help with check in as well as if you have a larger party that would require more than 2 keys. Would be nice to not have to check in at a location on 17, but have someone call/text with your room code and let you know your room is ready and can head to the unit.

Maintenance: The toilet in the 2nd bedroom/hall would not completely flush, and must be a regular problem as there was a plunger handy. The cable was not working in BR3, but was fixed by Thursday of our week after calling on Tuesday. Washer was leaking when a load was run, but was being addressed by the management. Shower head/controls could be updated.

Overall, a super clean, big, great location, wonderful rental. The balcony alone is worth it.

Surfmaster Penthouse L Stay Labor Day week 2015

  • 5 of 5

My family booked and stayed at the Surfmaster Penthouse L the week of Labor day recently and could not have been more pleased with the accomodations and wonderful relaxing week we had. We went through VRBO and David and Jan were great to deal with. The condo is one of the best we have ever stayed at in our 10+ years vacationing in Garden City and especially at the Surfmaster. From the furnishings to the kitchen, the great movie collection, wonderfully comfortable furniture, great closet of beach toys, and your own private hot tub we didn't need a thing. The very minimal maintenance issues we had were responded to immediately by the people who service the property and resolved them completely. Great place to spend some time recharging the batteries and we plan to be back next year.

Myrtle Beach is a unique vacation destination that has a little bit of everything, and no matter which one of our Myrtle Beach home rentals you choose, you’ll be nearby beautiful beaches, shopping centers, golf courses, fishing, restaurants, theaters and nightlife. Perfect for either families or couples, our Myrtle Beach home rentals offer luxurious and convenient amenities; beautiful décor; access to pristine beaches; and magical views of the sparkling Atlantic Ocean!

The Grand Strand is a large stretch of beautiful beaches where many of our Myrtle Beach home rentals are located. Once a hiding place popular among notorious pirates, today among America’s most popular vacation destinations, Myrtle Beach’s Grand Strand offers a wide variety of recreation and entertainment activities. Start with miles and miles of golden soft sand on a shore that slopes gently into the Atlantic. The Grand Strand was voted #1 in the USA (#6 in the world) in a recent poll of frequent travelers.

The communities just south of our Grand Strand Myrtle Beach home rentals, Surfside Beach and Garden City, are our most “family friendly” areas and offer scores of reasonably priced ocean front Myrtle Beach condo rentals for family enjoyment of the warm sunshine, sand, and the vast Atlantic. Many of these condos are large enough to accommodate several families, a perfect reunion setting.

Golf is the “national” pastime of The Grand Strand. Some say you can play a different course every day of the year. That’s probably an exaggeration, but certainly you can play 36 holes a day for a week, (or a month) without seeing the same course twice. There are well over 100 golf courses to choose from near many of our Myrtle Beach home rentals. Fishing is the lesser-known area sport. Inland waterways and shallow coastline areas offer anglers lots of action, with guides available to show the way.

A perfect family vacation area, there are dozens of attractions and amusement parks close to many of our Myrtle Beach home rentals for kids of all ages. The new SkyWheel, a 200 foot high Ferris wheel, is an amazing attraction and is said to be among the largest in the world. Also not far from many of our Myrtle Beach home rentals are zoos, an aquarium (with a dozen species of sharks!), science and curiosity exhibits and museums for family entertainment. Surfside Beach and Garden City both offer amusement parks the kids and parents alike will love.

For a combination of art, culture and nature many of our Myrtle Beach home rentals are right near Brookgreen Gardens. This 9,000 acre park exhibits one of the largest collections of sculpture by American artists in the world. The manicured lawns with walkways and pools beautifully enhance these spectacular works of art.

Restaurants are everywhere, with options for every taste and budget. Just about every cuisine in the world seems to be represented all only a short ways from many of our Myrtle Beach home rentals. Seafood is, of course, the staple, there are a large selection of places to get all you want. Murrell’s Inlet says it’s the Seafood Capital of South Carolina, and boasts a long row of highly regarded seafood restaurants to prove it.

Nightlife? If you’re not worn out yet, choose from live popular music, professionally produced stage shows, and “tribute” acts that pay homage to the legends of popular music, playing “oldies” that are sure to bring back memories.

Search for one of our incredible Myrtle Beach home rentals and begin planning your memorable beach vacation today!
