Property description

Location: Surfside Beach, just south of Grand Strand, Myrtle Beach (5 miles south of Myrtle Beach Airport).

In the heart of Surfside Beach, Katy’s Dream (3rd row) is a short walk to the beach, Surfside Pier, restaurants, nightlife, ice cream shops, library, playground, and tennis courts.

Off season we spend as much time at Katy’s Dream as we can. Professionally decorated, and updated every year, we hope our beach house will feel like your home away from home. Whether you want to sit and rock on one of the 3 covered porches, splash in the private pool, or just sit and enjoy watching a big screen HDTV, Katy’s Dream has it all!

Family meals are a breeze in our well equipped kitchen. From a waffle iron to cocktail glasses, you will find everything you need.

One of our favorite activities is sipping coffee and watching the sunrise from the upper level porch.

Our beach house is minutes away from golf, shopping, water parks, miniature golf, and live entertainment. We love the restaurants in nearby Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island, boat tours from historic Georgetown, and day trips to Charleston (90 miles).

Weekly rentals May through August start at 3PM Saturday and check-out is no later than 10AM the following Saturday. The contract signer must be 25 years of age or older and must occupy the property during the rental period.

Perfect for multi-family holidays, Katy’s Dream is your vacation place to be.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We built Katy's Dream as a family second home and gathering place. Over the years we have held many joyful times with our large family over Christmas and other holidays. We were both raised in the Pittsburgh area and have lived in many different places around the country as job promotions presented themselves. Therefore, we have many friends from all over the USA. We both graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Kathy has a masters in education from Brennau University and taught school for 30 years. I (Chuck) got my masters from the University of Pittsburgh and I am still active as an HR professional and consultant. We (actually Kathy as I was always traveling for business) raised two excellent children who are married and we are the proud grandparents of 3 boys and 3 girls. We currently live in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina (near Charleston) and plan to retire there. So we are close by, if needed, but far enough away at the same time.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
For many years we rented a home in Long Bay Estates about 4 miles north of SSB. This area became our annual family vacation place. Over the years we shared these vacation weeks with friends we have made from all over the country and many of them today have become residents of the area in retirement. When the opportunity presented itself for us to build our own home here we never hesitated. We found a solid builder who was building a duplex on the property. We immediately contacted close friends who were living in Chicago at the time whom we knew also wanted to buy a property in the area and they bought their beach house sight unseen with our recommendation. It has been a great partnership and you will notice a lot of similarities between the two units. It was planned that way. The property is probably in the best possible location it can be. We are in the heart of SSB, 3 rows back from the beach, close to restaurants, bars, shopping, playgrounds, library and all the best the area has to offer. Katy's Dream is our home away from home and our sanctuary. We hope it becomes yours also.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to sit at the heated pool after a morning on the beach or a round of golf and watch the kids splash in the water. It is a great place to sit and chill out with a beverage. Those that love to cook will find Kathy's kitchen with everything you can possibly need. The front porches are perfect to sit in the morning and watch the sun rise with a cup of coffee and a book. Our living area is comfortable and has all the entertainment equipment you will need and we have plenty of family games in the cabinet under the HDTV. Home away from home, sanctuary, relax all describe Katy's Dream and how we hope you feel after spending a week there.
