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.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall the house was amazing. The interior furnishings were far better than other rentals we have stayed in. There was plenty room for our group of 7 adults and 1 toddler. I would recommend adding TVs to the other 2 bedrooms. Just a couple of suggestions for the pool area - given that the house accommodates so many, 2 lounge chairs was not adequate. Also, the grill is in very bad shape. That said, we thoroughly enjoyed the house and our stay and definitely would rent this property in the future.

Reviewer Comments:

the property showed wear, the walls were in need of paint, the carpets had large spots and the entrance to the house was in need of cleaning. The kitchen was not well stocked for a family who was planning to cook together. Seating for meals was not adequate for the number of quest the hours sleep, not dining table! The location of the house was too far from the beach. the property company was professional but had no follow up tot he issues reported. We spend 3 of our 7 days with a cloudy pool. Overall, not somewhere I will be renting again.

Below I will list the problems we had. Before I do that I want you to know your lady over maintenance was very helpful with trying to get things corrected. A. For the 2nd. year in a row the pool was green when we arrived and according to neighbors had been for a while. I own a pool and after checking the chemicals I purchased and added the chemicals needed to clear the water. It was Tuesday before the water was clear enough to allow our children to swim. The filter had not been back washed in quite a while which had the pressure very high on the pump. Also there was no chlorine tablets in the chlorine tank. B.The AC Unit for the upstairs was not cooling properly. It was checked on Sunday. Two men were sent out Monday after lunch. They did not finish until 10 p.m. installing a new unit. On Thursday the owners came with their man and removed the new unit and reinstalled the used unit. I am not sure what they did to the unit but it worked better than before it was taken out. C. We had a swarm of ants come in on Tuesday. I bought raid and sprayed the around door ways and around the bar in the kitchen. I am not sure if anyone came out to spray but if so I didn't see them. On Friday afternoon we started seeing more ants. I will conclude by saying the 4 years we have stayed in Matthews House have been excellent for the first 2, fair for the 3rd. and poor for the 4th. We will not rent that house again. Regards, Jerry Davis

Disappointed and Frustrated!

  • 2 of 5

We were very excited about staying at the Matthews House, but that excitement was quickly dashed as we arrived and found a nearly brown pool. Our children were anxious to get in the pool, which was the main reason we had chosen that house, and were not able to do until the next evening at which point it still was not nearly cleaned adequately. In fact, it never cleared up. the floors were not clean, rug had not been vacuumed, and there was a fresh bodily fluid of some sort on the red bedspread upstairs which we had to wash. Spider webs and dust as well. We did enjoy the location and still managed to enjoy ourselves but feel we did not get what we paid for and deserved. We will not stay at this house again.

Reviewer Comments:

We were disappointed in this property. Upon arrival the pool was greenish brown in color. This was not cleared up even after 2 different pool companies put chemicals in it. Trash and beach towels from previous guests were found on the back porches, the main entrance was dirty, and trash was found under one of the bedside tables that had obviously been there awhile because of the dust webs. The back porches need cleaning and there were numerous light bulbs that needed replacing. I think this property was only surface cleaned before our arrival. The location of this property is great. If it had been clean it would have been perfect.

Disappointed

  • 3 of 5

We have rented from Garden City Realty before and we were very pleased. However, we rented Matthew's House from GCR this year and were very disappointed. Upon arrival with 4 very anxious kids who wanted to jump in the pool, we discovered the condition of the pool was green, almost brownish in color. After numerous calls and 2 different pool people who poured chemicals in it, the pool was never blue as it should have been. There were numerous light bulbs that needed to be changed, one of the comforters was soiled and we had to wash it, trash was found on one of the screened porches, beach towels from the previous guest was found on the other screened porch, both porches need a real cleaning, and the main entrance also needs cleaning. We felt this house had only been surface cleaned. All of this was reported to the office in which they said they would let housekeeping know. I hope it got a good cleaning for the guests who followed us. Disappointed!!
