About Gene & Kelley Clark

Trying to enjoy the second half of our lives as all 3 of our girls are in College. Never a bad day being on the beach........

Gene & Kelley Clark purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gene & Kelley Clark chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

We grew up visiting Surfside Beach during our Family summer vacations. This has always been a special place to visit, it has been a dream of ours to own property on the beach. We hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we do.

We will be doing some major upgrades starting in December to the entire Unit. We will update this site with NEW pics once all the work has been finished!!

What makes this condo unique

When we visit Windhaven 101, we cannot wait to fall asleep to the soothing sounds of waves crashing on the shore. And there are few pleasures greater than sipping morning coffee on the balcony while watching the sun rise or enjoying a family meal while fragrant sea breezes waft gently through the condo. From the moment you enter the unit, you are at the beach with oceanfront views all around!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Arrived Saturday to a glorious day - sunny and ocean temp warm enought to walk right in. Our daughter and her companion joined us the first week. We cooked on the bbq three times that week. We also had the pleasure of visiting with his sister and her husband who live in the areal. We had a fabulous day Friday - their last - and they left Saturday. We had a quieter second week with some cloudy, windy days, during which we entertained ourselves by reading, movies, shopping, etc. Friday (19th) our last day was a beautiful, sunny day spent by the pool. Two weeks have flown by and it's home tomorrow. We found the condo to be very comfortable and clean with everything we needed. We look forward to returning in the future!

Happiness by the sand

  • 4 of 5

We loved this condo. It's so comfortable and had plenty of room for us. The view is awesome and being so close to both ocean front and a pool is wonderful with small children. I also loved the feeling of being away from it all with the convenience of nearby stores and restaurants. I was so sad to leave on our last day and we will be back.

Plus the owners were more than happy to work with us on dates and super fast responding to any questions from the time I booked the condo.

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because there was some noise from neighbors above on the last day we were there and thank goodness it wasn't the whole stay. I can't wait to be back!!

Owner's Response: Glad you guys had a great week! It is nice to be in a area of the beach that is not that crowded but close enough to get to many restaurants, shopping and activities. The easy access to the pool and beach is why we like it so much. Sorry about the neighbors, we of course can't control that but I know the place is usually pretty quiet with only 6 units in this complex. You guys were great to work with, I hope we can help you with your vacation needs again next year!

Beautiful Ocean View!!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great vacation spot!! We are so happy that we stumbled upon this amazing rental. We made last minute plans for our very first vacation as a family of 3. We could not be happier that we chose to stay here last week!!

The owners, Gene and Kelley, were great to work with! Very responsive via e-mail. I felt very confident that, had we needed anything during our stay, they would have addressed any questions or concerns quickly.

The condo felt clean and was so bright and welcoming when we first walked in. It's so comfortable and has that "beach feel" that you're looking for when you book a vacation by the beach. The kitchen was well-equipped and we did make use of the charcoal grill outside. Plenty of towels were provided and we loved that we didn't need to bring sheets with us.

The view, even from the front door, is incredible!! You can hear the waves crashing from every room. So peaceful and relaxing. We hit the beach, which is only steps away from the condo, as soon as we got settled. Since we were there during the off season, the beach was quiet and not at all crowded (which we loved) all week. Our daughter didn't care that we didn't bring any toys with us. She collected handfuls of shells on the beach, loved running through the waves and enjoyed the wildlife (we found a few small crabs, which was very exciting for her!). We also loved that there was a pool. We were back and forth between the beach and the pool (at the request of our daughter) and were glad to have the little outdoor showering area.

There are so many things to do nearby! Ripley's Aquarium and Huntington Beach State Park (Atalaya House and Brookgreen Gardens) were our favorites. Lots of restaurants. Our daughter enjoyed the ice cream at Meyer's Ice Cream Parlor.

It was the ideal vacation at the ideal place. Thank you to Gene and Kelley for sharing this beautiful place with our family! We will be considering another stay here for sure!!

A Great Place To Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sounds of the Sea for the month of April. The condo was exactly as advertised. It was larger than we expected with plenty of room for the two of us and our guests.

We were very pleased with the well equipped kitchen and especially appreciated the Keurig coffee machine. It was so easy to make our coffee in the morning and go out to the deck to watch the sun rise. The large dining table was perfect for dinners and provided lots of space for two high chairs when our grand babies came to visit.

The living area provided comfortable seating for 4 adults. When our guests left, we were able to each have a couch to sprawl out on!

The master bed was very comfortable and the room was large and provided a great ocean view. The ensuite shower was also large and easy to use. The closet had plenty of space for hanging clothes and the number of hangers was sufficient. We really appreciated having the linen package and not having to bring bedding and towels with us.

The second bedroom was also large and had good closet space. The bed was a little too hard for the liking of our two children and their spouses who came on different weeks. A topper would be very helpful for a softer feel.

The third bedroom had a much more comfortable mattress, but was a little small for two adults. It would be perfect for children. We really liked having t.v's in all of the bedrooms and the big screen in the living room!

The ocean view from the side window and large walkout was amazing!! The beach in front of the condo was less crowded than other parts of the beach. We enjoyed walking the beach and sunbathing and were even able to get into the ocean!

It was also great having the pool. We mostly had it to ourselves and it was very well maintained.

Gene and Kelley responded to our questions always very promptly and were a pleasure to deal with. Thank-you so much for the use of your condo. We will be back next year!

Bev & Jim.

It is always intimidating to rent a vacation place over the internet...we have experienced many disappointments over the years...but you won't be disappointed renting this condo!! It was lovely, quiet and very clean.The beach was delightful to walk every morning and if you want to get up early the sunrises can be spectacular .Gene and Kelly were fabulous hosts...responded promptly to any questions or concerns. Been coming to Myrtle Beach for 20+years...first time staying in Surfside....will stay in this area and just south was fun and challenging....I highly recommend this property!!!
