About Pat Hupp

I am a Grandma that loves the beach and my farm in Virginia! Born and raised in Ohio, moved to Virginia in 1967, and never left! Amazing place to live, but very fast paced and congested. I bought this home for myself, and my grandchildren to build sandcastles, ride bikes, and to have a good time together. I hope that you and your family love my home as much as we do! I will have updated pictures coming in May, lots of updates!

Pat Hupp purchased this house in 2005

Why Pat Hupp chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

Surfside is quiet, family orientated, safe, clean, manicured, the water is warm and clear here, I wanted parking for family and this holds 4 cars. I told my Realtor, only Surfside, ceramic floors in great room, single family home, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, walking distance to the beach! I love it, bought it without ever seeing it (except for pictures) and it ended up being better than I expected!

My grandchildren have several parks to walk to, a public library walking distance with 25 computers for public use, tennis a block away, and lots of bars and eateries walking distance (no designated driver needed).

I am particular about manicured lawns, safe streets for walking at night, safe neighborhoods, pristine beaches, and this town has all of that to offer.

What makes this house unique

Walk to beach, library, playgrounds, happy hour, food places.....everything is so close. The grand kids love the water parks and minature golf courses. Discount malls, flea markets, thrift stores, 3 D movie theaters, Myrtle Beach has it all! Surfside has a pristine beach, that is cleaned everyday.

Surfside enjoyment

  • 5 of 5

This house was a pleasure to stay in with an ideal location: close to the beach yet far enough away for peace and quietness. We learned how to get around on the back streets of highway 17 business so the traffic was of no concern to us on our golf, shopping, and sightseeing trips. The house itself was well furnished and styled with a relaxing fell for the I don't want to do anything days. A return trip is a must for our next year plans!

Fabulous property!

  • 5 of 5

Travelled to the US from Ireland with my husband and 3 teenage children. Flew into New York and spent a few days there, followed by a few days in Washington and we were delighted to get to Surfside Beach for a rest! Am always apprehensive when visiting a new property but I can honestly say that we were delighted. Most importantly for me, the house was spotlessly clean. Bedrooms were large and airy. Loved the layout with the master bedroom on the first floor. This meant that the children had the top floor all to themselves. Kitchen had everything you could ever need and having wifi was an added bonus for the children. Great washer and dryer too. Very short walk to a pristine beach. Great area for families. Felt very safe. Lots of nice restaurants a short drive away. Also short drive to outlets and mall. Good communication from the owner, Pat. Would highly recommend this property. The children are already talking about going back next year!

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything it said it would be. It was perfect for our family of 10. 7 adults, 2 kids & a baby. Very easy and short walk to the beach. We had such a great time and hope to continue staying at this home in the future!

Wonderful stay at Grandma's Sandbox!

  • 5 of 5

Great house, exactly as described. Nicely decorated and well-appointed (successfully cooked a meal for a large group one night), especially if you have kids- there's a high chair, pack 'n play, toys and books. Easy access to beach and pier. Large screened porch was awesome. Bedrooms were larger than expected. We will definitely be back and I recommend this property.

Home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a home with all the amenities. The little details were noted such as the ceiling fan in the bathroom to cool down quickly after showering. It also had a great rinse off option in the carport. There was a foot faucet, shower or hose to get the sand off before going inside. I loved the floor plan that had the kitchen on the first level. Easy for bring groceries in. Overall we were very pleased with the hug ceilings and front porch. We made many memories there this week.

Wonderful Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful and just as advertised. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner was extremely helpful in answering questions and concerns. The listing photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. There is a farmers market just up the street every Tuesdays from 10 AM until 3 PM. We purchased delicious fresh produce there. There is a library and playground just across the street with live music on various days in front of the library. There are grocery stores close by and many things to do at Surfside Beach. A good time was had by all!

Library and playground a football field distance away. Great flea market 5 minutes away. Golf courses, water slides, bowling, Marsh walk for wildlife viewing in nearby Murriels Inlet. Endless shopping and restaurants!

My home has a front porch, and a screened in side porch. An ample driveway for mulitple car parking. Smart TV's are 4 out of the 5 tvs. The one non smart tv, has a dvd player. Cable, wifi, with flat screen TV's , are included at no cost. All sheets, bath towels, and cleaning fees are included in rent. I only rent on a weekly from Saturday to Saturday. NO pets or smoking. No long term rentals, I do rent monthly in the off season.

Taxes and insurance policy are additional fees. No refunds on rental after securing property, unless you are evacuated due to a hurricane.

Quiet streets that are super for biking, walking, and running. In season, the farmers market is available a "football field away". Several wonderful parks close by for the children to enjoy and an almost new library with 36 computers for your use in walking distance.

The beach in Surfside is cleaned every day! This is what sold me on this community. Cleanliness thru out Surfside, wonderfully maintained by the city. No 'don's johns' at the beach, you have real restrooms for your use.

You can walk to the beach, library, local bars and eateries. Don't miss the Conch and Valentino's! I love thrift shops, and the best are along 17S towards Pawley's Island. Golf, minature golf, water parks, fishing pier, there is so much to see! Village Furniture store is my latest find....bring a truck, prices are fantastic and prices are amazing!
