Garden City Beach house description
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.
Large oceanview master bedroom and bath located on the second floor along with 3 other bedrooms and 3 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.

Just got home from our week at the house and besides the weather being awful we had a great time! The house was perfect. Great location, no need to go into the hustle & bustle of downtown Myrtle unless you wanted too, everything close at the inlet. Lots to see and do and eat! Everything we needed and wanted. Very nicely decorated. Well stocked kitchen. Loved the open floor plan downstairs. A few minor issues, but nothing that a call to the maintenance guy didn't solve. One suggestion would be to have trash picked up twice during the week. With a full house it was kind of overflowing. Recycling would be a good option too, don't know if it's offered or not. And the screens need replaced or installed in the windows, so we couldn't turn off air and open them. Would have liked a later check out too. All in all we had a wonderful time and will most defiantly be back. Thanks for sharing your home!

Owner response: Thank you for your review. We are in the process of replacing the window screens that are in need of it. During the summer months (June - August), the trash is picked up twice a week, but during the other months, it is just once a week. This is something that is handled through our HOA, but I will make a suggestion to increase the pick up during the spring months. We are not able to change the check out time, it is currently 10:00 am. This allows time for our cleaning crew to do a thorough job & have the house in top shape for the next guests. We have upfitted the house with all new mattresses, replaced all TV's with flat screens & added two new blue ray players. We aim to do everything possible to make our guests stay enjoyable.
Great Beach House
Great Beach House
Our extended family really enjoyed this home. The setting is perfect with the most beautiful beach, right out your back door. The home was large enough for four adult couples and two, two year olds. The kitchen had everything you would need, and the dining area very large. There was plenty of room in the living area of everyone who chose, to watch TV in the evenings. The deck off the back is beautiful. We had a couple of small issues, the bathtub drains in two of the bathrooms were almost completely blocked. Two of our "handy" men took to them with a coat hanger and removed lots of gunk --- they then ran great. The cleaning company surely should have made note of that so it was repaired. Also, we had read that the mattress in the bedroom next to the master bedroom was very poor. It was actually horrible. We ended up bringing a twin mattress from downstairs for someone to sleep on. And, that door is about to fall off its hinges (we didn't fix that). Don't let those few items discourage you - the location and overall condition of the home was terrific! Also, working with Mardi, who booked the home for us was wonderful. She responded to all our questions in no time.

Owner response: We currently have several mattresses scheduled for replacement at the end of the summer rental season and have notified our cleaning company to check the drains for clogs. They do clog up during the summer with sand. The door hinges are being repaired. We do everything possible to make the stay for our guests as comfortable as possible and welcome all comments. The only way for us to know if there are issues is to be notified. Thank you for doing this.
Terrific beach house!
Terrific beach house!
Our extended family of 10 stayed for a week in June. You can't beat the location - just step outside and you are on the beautiful beach. The location is also very close to a Super Walmart for groceries and several restaurants for the nights you don't feel like cooking. The pool is only two houses away - a very short walk either on the sidewalk or the beach. The pool is not elaborate, but it's large and clean, and the kids enjoyed it when they needed a break from the waves. The house is nicely equipped - nothing fancy, but comfortable. The kitchen had everyting we needed and the kitchen table was big enough for a family dinner and lots of board games during the week. The beds must have been comfortable because we slept in every day. The deck is a great place to sip a cocktail and watching the waves roll in. We have a great trip and I would recommend this home for your family. Thanks to Mardi to making everything about the rental very smooth and easy.

Beautiful, large house with perfect beach location. The property was well maintained and had a well stocked kitchen. The cleaning crew was a little late in finishing up on our arrival, but we were able to come on in and start unloading. The only drawback was there was only one small round table on the deck....plenty of chairs, but just the one table did not allow us to all eat outside as much as we would have liked. The location is great with easy access to grocery store and fresh fish market( Fish Mongers) and only a few miles from Murrells Inlet dining out ( loved Flo's and especially Inlet Crab House). Would go back again for sure!

Spacious house located right on the beach. Used all bedrooms for family/kids,& grands. Plenty of living space/ sitting,dinning area ; kitchen well stocked w/utencils,etc. Parking for 4 cars (most condos limited to 2 spaces). Huge beachside deck partially covered for shade, deck chairs available. My wife swam laps in the pvt. pool 5 days w/o interuption at all. Minutes away from Murrels Inlet restaraunts/Marsh Walk. Enjoyed seafood at The Gulf Stream Cafe, Lee's Inlet Kitchen and a 2hr. boat ride on the Intercoastal Water Way from the Wachesaw (?) Marina (south of Murrels Inlet on HWY 17. The entire family agreed that this house was our favorite and they want to return next year. I'd say that just about says it all!

I really enjoyed my stay at this cute beach house! I loved the fact that it was right on the beach and very open. Mardi was a pleasure to work with and very quick to respond and get information to me. I would stay here again! There's some slight water damage on the ceilings downstairs but you expect something like that with a house right on the beach. Overall I would recommend staying here!
