Garden City House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Big Balloon is a three-bedroom, two-bath beach house located 0.5 miles south of Garden City Pier, across the street from the beach. This home has a fully-equipped kitchen complete with microwave and dishwasher, carpeted screened porch on front (ocean view), washer, dryer, and central heat and air conditioning. Flat screen TV (cable), DVD player, telephone, and Wi-Fi are also provided. Sleeping accommodations include two queen and two twin-sized beds, plus two day beds (one has a pullout trundle bed). Bedroom one has a private bath and the next two bedrooms share a bathroom. No pets. Check-out maid service included. Linens not included. Complete linen and bath package is available for $150, sheets and pillowcases only available for $72. Maximum occupancy: 8

Conveniently located close to some of the best area attractions, Garden City Beach is directly south of Surfside Beach and ends on a peninsula at the mouth of Murrells Inlet. One of the most renowned attractions in Garden City Beach is the Pier at Garden City. Other attractions include Marlin Quay Marina, Gulf Stream Cafe, Original Sam's Corner, and Sara J's Seafood Restaurant.

Just south of Garden City Beach is Murrells Inlet, a seaside community that is considered to be the "Seafood Capital of South Carolina", but is also home to some of the nation's best golf courses. Once primarily a fishing village, the town is best known for the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk, a half-mile long boardwalk overlooking a pristine salt marsh, and the many award-winning seafood and barbecue restaurants along Highway 17 Business in the central business district.

Brookgreen Gardens, a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve built on four former rice plantations, is located slightly south of Murrells Inlet. It features several themed gardens with American figurative sculptures placed in them, trails through several nature reserve ecosystems and the Lowcountry Zoo.

If you're looking for places to shop, Inlet Square Mall, The Market Common, Coastal Grand, Myrtle Beach Mall, Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, two Tanger shopping outlets, countless strip-malls, and many more shopping facilities are all within an easy drive from Garden City Beach. Looking for some entertainment, take in a show at Alabama Theater, Medieval Times, The Carolina Opry, Pirates Voyage, and Legends in Concert. And don't forget about Ripley's Aquarium, Alligator Adventure, Hard Rock Cafe, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, and The Pavilion Nostalgia Park.

Other points of interest close by include the waterfront community of Georgetown, the third oldest city in South Carolina and second largest seaport in South Carolina, and historic Conway with its downtown Riverwalk area nestled on the banks of the Waccamaw River. Both towns include fine dining, shopping, and historic sites.

Surfside Beach, Garden City Beach and Murrells Inlet are all close to Waccamaw Hospital and several urgent care facilities.

Whatever your desire, whatever your need, the south strand offers a little something on everyone's to-do list. We have a variety of restaurants, retail stores, miniature golf, entertainment venues, charter fishing, water sports... and of course, nothing but relaxation.

Worst vacation rental ever

  • 1 of 5

Reviewer Comments:

As the old saying goes you get what you pay for, but from the pictures my expectations were a little higher. Upon arrival we noticed the place had a horrible smell (old and musty), there were dead bugs all over the floors and showers, a large piece of broken glass on the kitchen floor, and the overall cleanliness was horrible, after my grandkids walked around inside their feet were black. The carpet in the bedrooms were badly stained, and the room my husband and I were in had a strong urine smell. I don't feel Garden City Realty did enough to accommodate our concerns,we wanted to be moved and were willing to pay a little more money to do so, they made no effort to find us another rental instead they sent housecleaning back, which really did no good as we had already swept up the bugs and glass, supposedly they mopped the floors again, which I don't believe was done. I asked that the owners compensate us in some way, but to Garden City that wasn't an option. If I wasn't there for my nieces wedding, I would've left, which we did end up leaving a day early, once we arrive home I had to wash all of the clothes we took as they all had the musty smell from that nasty house. Garden City as a representative should maybe inspect these properties that they represent a little better, even under the house was dirty and littered with trash. I will never rent another home from Garden City.

Reviewer Comments:

Over all the house and our stay was very good. AC was cold, always had plenty of hot water and location was wonderful. I would suggest the owners fix the side entrance door as it is stuck shut and would not open. Not good in an emergency. Also a few more chairs on the front porch would be nice as the three provided was not enough for the 6 of us who stayed there. They might also want to add a cheap outside grill. Other than that all was good.
