About Jennifer O'Neill

Adam and I have really enjoyed renting our multiple homes in Oceanside Village for the past several years, and thought another home in Melody Gardens would be a great addition to Sandy Paws Retreats! High end pet friendly homes is our specialty. Oceanside Village has so much to offer, and it is the perfect family vacation spot in the heart of Surfside Beach!

Our new property has been completely remodelled over the past 6 weeks, and is basically a new home. We have tried to make it extremely comfortable, with lots of the little 'Extras' to make it feel like home. We hope you and your family will come and enjoy, and become one of our many returning visitors to Surfside!!

We pride ourselves on giving exceptional service to our guests, and making your rental experience as enjoyable as possible. I am always available before/during your stay if you need any assistance. I encourage new potential guests to read the many wonderful reviews on our other properties to get an idea of what your rental experience will be with us.

Thanks for looking!!

average rating of 5.0 based on 28 reviews

Three generations and each was extremely pleased

  • 5 of 5

Perfect family accommodations. Safe and well managed property. Pristine house having a layout lending itself to friendly interaction. Outgoing neighborhood residents (our arms were sore from waving back at everyone). Easy access to the beach, activities, necessities and good restaurants. Lots of canine residents as well plus a 14 acre dog park nearby (bring proof of rabies vacs). A great reasonably priced executive golf course across the street. And, the golf carts were a hoot.

Great place and even better in person!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family lives all around the beach area and we wanted to all meet in one place for Christmas. This place was the perfect size and had everything you could need! The golf carts made it fun/easy to get around and the night life and restaurants were in short distance. The pictures are great, but it's even better in person. Jennifer met all our needs and made our vacation one for the memory books. Everyone in our family enjoyed themselves, even our English Bulldog Brownie! We will definitely stay here again when we are back in town!!

This our second stay in one of this owners homes and will be many more to come. We give up nothing when we stay in one of their properties. Wonderfully maintained, CLEAN, granite countertops, great tv's in all the bedrooms, large one in great room and this floor plan even had a sitting room, Keurig coffee pot, beach chairs, nice washer & dryer etc etc... We love the comfy furniture & bed. We also were allowed to bring our labrador on vacation!! Not a bad walk to the beach, but this property has two golf carts and a designated beach front parking lot area just for golf carts. But bring YOUR beach umbrella, they don't allow canopy's anyplace on the beach.

Exceeded All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Melody Gardens beach house. The house was equipped with everything you could possibly want, beautifully decorated and immaculately clean - all within a very quiet community. This was our first visit to the Myrtle Beach area and Jennifer was very helpful in providing the details of the local attractions. Although when we saw how nice the amenities were in this Surfside community - including the fantastic beach which the kids loved - we ignored most of the local attractions in favor of enjoying the great facilities provided by this vacation home. Our group included 4 adults and 4 children (and 2 dogs) and there was plenty of room for everyone to do their own thing. The golfcarts were a fantastic convenience.

We are already planning our return trip.

Excellent Location, Perfectly Maintained

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently enjoyed this rental for a week away from the cold Ohio weather! We traveled with my parents and our toddler son. The space was perfect - we never felt cramped, and with the layout of the house, we all had places to lounge and relax. The location of the home is wonderful to hit the beach, or pool. Additionally, we were able to travel into Myrtle quite a few times very quickly and enjoy the shops. We will definitely return to this home!
