About Tom & Donna Bauer

Our family purchased 15A N Ocean Blvd. in 2011. It is the perfect beach house for a large family. We wanted a beach house within a stone’s throw of the beach, so that our kids can walk to and from the beach on their own.

Tom & Donna Bauer purchased this house in 2011

Why Tom & Donna Bauer chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach Area

Surfside Beach is a great family beach away from the Myrtle Beach Crowds and Chaos. Great dining, golfing and lots of family things to do.

What makes this house unique

The property is next store to the Surfside Beach town center with the Fishing Pier, Dining, Ice Cream and Gift Shops. The property is very large with two balconies facing the beach, a private pool and fenced in back yard.

An unforgettable vacation experience!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first extended family vacation, and everyone had an amazing time! The house was so conveniently located near everything that we didn't have to waste precious relaxation time traveling too far. The house was clean, comfortable and felt just like home. We did have an issue with limited Internet connectivity but Tom contacted TWC right away and compensated us for the inconvenience. We left, almost tearfully, deciding that we would definitely be back next year to this perfect vacation spot!

Very nice beach house.

  • 5 of 5

Me, along with 12 others stayed at this beach house and had plenty of extra room. The inside was very nice and very clean. We added the sheets and towels to our package and they were there when we arrived. This house is less than a minutes walk to the beach and some very good food at the pier. I will definitely be going back.

Not so good the second time around

  • 2 of 5

This was our second time staying at this properly and this time proved to be very disappointing. The cleanliness of this house was very poor, cubboards above the stove were covered in dust, rugs are completely stained, floors not swepted (hair all over master bath floor), kitchen drawers filled with curmbs and wrappers, and the rugs on the kitchen floor were disgusting. We contacted the owners and they assured us the cleaning staff was there, however we arrived early that day and noticed when they arrived and departed which could explain why the lack of thoroughness. I could go on and on. On a positive note the pool this year was cleaned daily unlike last year. The house has plenty of spacious rooms , is coveniently located and easy to find. I would recommend this place if you are willing to clean a little first.

Owner's Response: Dear Michelle, I am so sorry that our house did not meet your standards of cleanliness when you arrived. My husband and I do our best to maintain our house and had never had any complaints in three years. We immediately sent cleaning people to rectify the situation and you refused to let them in. I have forwarded the review on to my cleaning people so that they are aware that someone is taking note of the job they are doing. Thank you very much for your feedback. Tom and Donna

Annual Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location just a block from the beach with beach access directly across the street. Nice private pool. The ocean was fabulous during this tie of the year, we spent every day at the beach as well as at the rental pool. The privacy was nice for small children and the location couldn't be better. With the understanding that this is a rental we didn't expect the home to be spotless or perfect, it was nice. The home and baths were fairly clean. We paid extra for towels/bedding linens which was a big halp and I recommend. To pack linens would be too much for the size of our family. The rental was spacious enough for us. 13 total, our 5 adult children, three daughter in laws and 3 grandchildren. Overall a really good value and nice house.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this home. It was very clean, spacious and in a wonderful location. Due to food allergies, we cooked almost all of our meals and the kitchen was well appointed. I was hesitant to stay here because it is a duplex. The renters next door actually had three dogs, yet this unit was very quiet. We were so close to the beach, it was a quick easy trip to the store and wonderful all around. The rooms were all very comfortable. We had three couples and two singles and had plenty of space. Thanks Tom and Donna!
