This home features a fully-equipped kitchen complete with microwave and dishwasher, washer, dryer, central heat and air conditioning, ceiling fans, hardwood and ceramic tile flooring, security system with cameras, fireplace, and convenient ground-floor kitchen to service the outdoor living space. Five flat-screen TVs (cable), DVD player, gaming system, and Wi-Fi are also provided. Sleeping accommodations include six queen-sized beds and one queen-sized sofa bed. Outdoor amenities feature a private 25-by-15-foot swimming pool (chlorine free filtration system), two covered porches (furnished front porch has ocean views), grill, shower, and plenty of parking (some covered).

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.

House in DESPERATE need of maintenance overhaul

  • 2 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was very helpful.

The vacation rental was clean.

I was more than happy with the location.

I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The house needs to be renovated. It could be a wonderful house if it was renovated. There are multiple areas that need fixing including lights light bulbs damaged drywall on ceilings need paint. One bedrooms main light did not work and you could hear electrical arching. This was reported to realty but not fixed. Pool was filthy and on last day there pool company came and skimmed surface but did not even sweep the bottom of the pool. Very disappointing. I have photos if anyone cared to see them.

Overall our family enjoyed our vacation. I think the rental needs a little TLC with attention to cleanliness... especially the floors and the strong pet odor outside... we bought new shower curtain liners for two of the showers.

The house was perfect for our purpose. It was very spacious and perfect for a family gathering. The only complaint is that the downstairs bedroom is not very inviting.

Family Vacation 2015

Reviewer Comments:

First impression was good, but after staying for a week, my family realized that there is a lot of improvements that could and should be made to this rental properties. I had read previous reviews and it seems nothing has been done to the flooring to keep your feet from getting black if you walk barefooted. The 2 small bathrooms upstairs are not in the best condition, the extra bedroom downstairs smells and the outdoor kitchen looks like that is where the old appliances are stored. The stove in the upstairs kitchen is really bad shape; only part of the stove burners work. Flood light on back left side is just dangling. Definitely would not rent again.

Reviewer Comments:

This was the dirtiest, most disgusting rental house we ever stayed in. Left over food in the fridge and cupboards. Never swept, dead bugs and sand everywhere. Garbage in every cupboard and cabinet. Kitchen is not stocked well. We have stayed in a lot of rental homes over the years, I've never seen one this bad. Have to walk a block down the street for beach access. Would never stay with garden city again.
