About Sara McKinney Sulier

Sara Sulier (Owner)

Louisville KY is a wonderful place to live with the beauty of all seasons but it does not have an ocean. I fell in love with South Carolina the first time I visited and started planning to retire there. Caring for my 94 year old Mother has delayed those plans but has given me the opportunity to share the magic of the beach with others. Preparing Sea La Vie for rental was a labor of love...thinking about the joy it will bring to those who come to stay and leave with beautiful memories of their time with loved-ones...walks on the beach, breathtaking sunsets, laughing children splashing in the ocean and building sand castles, beautiful golf courses, fish that did or did not get away, and, of course, not to forget sand in their luggage.

Sara McKinney Sulier purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Sara McKinney Sulier chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

Garden City is close to everything Myrtle Beach has to offer with a more quiet family neighborhood feel and less traffic. Located between Myrtle Beach and Pawleys Island makes it a short drive to attractions at either of these very popular locations. For me, it was important to be closer to one of the most beautiful Cities in our Country, Charleston. Charleston, rich with history, architecture, fine restaurants, plantations, shopping and unique ambiance is a comfortable one day outing from Garden City.

What makes this townhome unique

Sea La Vie is designed to provide guests with the amenities and decor to make their stay special. Whether swimming in the private pool, relaxing on the decks, or hanging out in the beach theme indoor rooms, everything is designed for comfort, relaxation and fun.

Wonderful place for a relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Sea La Vie. Comfortable house, fantastic bedding, nicely appointed with everything we needed for 2 moms and 6 teens. Owner Sara could not have been more accommodating and worked with us on so many details and prep for our trip. She wanted house perfectly cleaned and oversaw that process herself. Because it was early April, we paid to have the pool heated which was great though it does get plenty of sun during the day so probably not necessary for most of the late spring/early fall. Location is great - very close to beach and kids could walk to basketball court and arcade. Can't wait to return!

We rented the house for a regional competitive event and brought our coaches and spouses. It was plenty of room for all of us and had everything we could possible need for the long weekend. Great stay and would consider coming back again!

My review is a little late ;)

We stayed a week as a family after a wedding. It was a gorgeous home very conveniently located. Our youngest has Autism and the private pool was one of the major things we looked for when booking, the kids LOVED the pool and it was warm all week! It is a short walk to the public beach. Everything you need is right there at the house but should you need to go out there is much to do and see close by.

Sara was a pleasure to deal with and does an amazing job making sure you're taken care of during your stay!

Very nice home. OUr family had a wonderful time.

  • 4 of 5

The owner was very accommodating and the pictures of the inside of the home were as pictured. It was nicely decorated. We had many rules to follow but I can understand why- the house was beautiful and the owner would like to keep it that way. The pool was a Godsend for the kids- there were 6 kids. The week we rented the heat index on the beach was 105 so we very much appreciated the pool. I would recommend that you bring extra wash cloths or buy them at Walmart when you get there because the supply was limited.

There is an ample amount of coffee, dishwashing detergent and laundry detergent when you get there. This is something we usually don't find in other rentals. There was plenty of pots, pans, dishware and spices in the cupboard. The pool had beach toys and a cart to bring things to the beach. Very nice amenities not usually found at other rentals. The owner was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had and remedied any issues right away. She was wonderful to work with.

The picture showing the ocean view makes it look closer than it actually is at no o fault of the owner. We usually stay right on the beach but had a wonderful time because we got golf carts. There is golf cart parking lot next to the beach.
