About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Wonderful ocean front home. Part of the Portofino IV Community. Relax on the covered porch overlooking a fantastic view of the ocean or take a swim in the community pool. Short boardwalk directly to the beach. Centrally located half way between the Surfside and Garden City piers.

We just finished the renovation (Spring 2015). Completely repainted on the inside, new living room furniture and replaced many of the light and bath fixtures. A very homey and welcoming beach house!

Large oceanview master bedroom and bath located on the second floor along with 4 other bedrooms and 4 baths. One bedroom and bath is conveniently located on the first floor. Each bedroom is equipped with it's own TV. For bedding information the house has 1 king bed (master), 2 bedrooms with 1 queen each, 1 bedroom with 2 queens and 1 bedroom with 2 singles. We have replaced the two twin mattresses in the downstairs bedroom that had caused issues in the past and now we have now replaced all four of the queen mattress sets, so you can experience a great nights sleep! The master has a deluxe pillow top king mattress set.

Kitchen, bar area, dining room and living room are all ajoining, so that family time can be enjoyed, along with a view from all areas of the ocean.

Convenient to Myrtle Beach and all the attractions, but out of the hustle, bustle and traffic. Close to local restraurants and attractions in Surfside and Garden City.

Overall the house was very nice and so close to the beach. The back porch was our favorite location!

  • 5 of 5

The biggest inconvenience was there were only 14 forks and not many more big plates. We were constantly washing silverware and finally used mostly paper plates and plastic forks. If the house is for 14 people you should have ample plates, cups and silverware. Also one of the TVs didn't have a cable box so it didn't get any channels. Other than that we were very happy. The porch and furniture on the porch was fantastic and very accommodating. Being directly on the beach was the best! Would definitely recommend! Also there is a serious drainage problem under the house when it rains. We were literally in water up over our ankles - not the case for all the houses in the complex and when we drove up in to surfside right next door - none of there's were flooded.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and comments. We will take care of adding more plates and silverware to the kitchen stock. We were also unaware of a missing cable box, so we will take care of that also. Concerning the drainage problem, there has been an issue with the storm drain in the parking lot. The Homeowner's Association is working with the city to rectify this. I will check and see where they stand on the issue. As always, we welcome all suggestions from our guests. Naturally we are not there during the summer months and like to know if items are needed.

The house was great. Nice and clean and had everthing we needed

  • 4 of 5

The place was great! We loved it. There was no toilet paper in any of the bathrooms. Is that normal? We could have dish soap and dishwasher detergent as well. Is this stuff usually included? No big deal if it isn't. Anyway, we loved it and are considering booking for next year as well.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the house. For future reference, paper products and cleaning items are not provided. Sometimes these items are left over from previous guests, but we recommend to all guests to either bring these items with them, or after arriving at the house, take inventory and then purchase what you need. As always, if guests have any questions prior to arrival an email or phone call is welcomed. We try to provide quick answers to all questions and help our guests all we can before their arrival and then during their stay. We hope to see you next summer!!

Owner's Response: We welcome all observations from our guests. We appreciate hearing both the good and the bad! That is the only way for us to know if any problems arise. The air in that particular bedroom will be taken care of. I only wish we would have know at the start of the vacation week so that we could have taken care of it immediately. Glad the guests enjoyed there stay and have already booked again for next summer.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Portofino IV – 2006 Waccamaw was truly wonderful. Our decision to stay in Murrells Inlet as opposed to Myrtle Beach itself was absolutely the right decision. The area is much more family friendly and you feel as if you have your own beach frontage. Since our stay was before Memorial Day, Mardi was flexible with the dates of our stay; very beneficial to our travelers. We originally had booked those same dates on HomeAway at a condo in North Myrtle, but after sitting on our reservation for three months, the owner cancelled our reservation without explanation. The house itself shows the wear of its high demand, but it was fine. It’s bigger than the pictures lead you to believe; 10’ ceilings, 4’ wide staircase, comfy leather couches all contributed to plenty of elbow room for our party of ten. The icing on the cake was, no surprise, its proximity to the ocean and its NEW deck and deck furniture. Heck, that’s why we’re all there anyway, to be outside. We would absolutely stay there again. Thanks Mardi!

Great place and location

  • 4 of 5

Great location and plenty of room for our family of 13. The new deck and lawn furniture were perfect for coffees in the morning and relaxing at night. Hope to make this an annual trip from Canada with our children and grandchildren.
