Overview

Garden City Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Floyd Cottage is a four-bedroom, two-bath oceanfront beach house located 0.4 miles south of the Surfside Pier. This home features a fully-equipped kitchen complete with a microwave and dishwasher, as well as a highchair, washer, dryer, central heat and air conditioning, and ceiling fans. Two color TVs (cable), two DVD players, telephone, and Wi-Fi are also provided. Sleeping accommodations include two queen, two double, and two twin-sized beds. Outdoor amenities include two furnished screened porches, sundeck, picnic table, enclosed shower with changing area, and ample parking (some covered). No smoking. No pets. Check-out maid service included. Linens included. Maximum occupancy: 10

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:

This is a favorite spot of ours - two families share the house with common eating / meeting / cooking space in the middle and two decent sized bedrooms on each side. The two main bedroom each have a sea view and access to the long balcony son no fighting over who's got the better half of the house. Bags of parking room - 4 cars under cover if you need to and the outdoor showers & change rooms keep down the amount of sand you share your bed with! There are only two real drawbacks of this place. The all night spotlight on the 6 unit apartment building next door which shines right in the side window of one of the main bedrooms (nothing that a pinned up towel or garbage bag won't fix). And the gate on the pool of the same building slams really noisily and, as it provides the only route to the beach, really often. It's a pin in the butt having to ask 6 groups of people to do the decent thing and close the gate quietly, especially as most of them don't bother even then.

we had a wonderful time at this rental. I would recommend it and revisit. Garden City realty was friendly and courteous. We found the house to be clean and well furnished. Very well suited for children and easy access to the beach. Nice area close to everything.

Great property and location. There were a couple of things that were concerns: the kitchen overhead light did not work which was major, and the refrigerator light was out. The floors were filthy and that is the only way to describe them. Linoleum floors are fine, but you have to scrub them.

Reviewer Comments:

I will start with the positive, the view from 615 Ocean Blvd “ Floyd Cottage” was awesome…It was photo worthy from inside view through the back door into the screened porch and to the view of the ocean…but everything else fell short. The beach house was very worn. Interior decorations to furniture to kitchen appliances were all out dated or maybe I am missing the interior decoration concept. All the beds were extremely old and very uncomfortable and several of our family members complained about back pains. Sleeping on the floor would have been better. Here were my major issues. On the day of the checkout, I told one of the Garden City Realty, Inc member I had some feedback for the property but I felt like I was ignored. Here were my issues, for 2 or 3 nights I saw what appeared to be large cockroaches crawling on the kitchen floor. When I told Garden City, they said “Oh..its just the South Carolina Palmetto Bug”…aka American cockroach. I was not too excited and was not happy with his comment. My 2nd major issues was the nail heads sticking out deck boards in several places resulting in one of our guess going to the ER for 5 stitches on the bottom of the their foot and not being able to get in the water for the rest of the trip. I am extremely thankful that none of the 4 toddlers (18month to 4 yrs) staying with us didn't get hurt. Again when I told the Garden City they said, “Oh…you purchased travel insurance…do you have the book?” I figured if you spend this kind of money to stay there, there would be more friendly and sympathetic and concerning agents but nope. Overall, I was not too impressed!

Very nice time with the family. Beautiful view; great porch. The 2 queen beds were very uncomfortable though. House as a whole a little worn.
