                      Library and playground a football field distance away. Great flea market 5 minutes away. Golf courses, water slides, bowling, Marsh walk for wildlike viewing in nearby Murriels Inlet. Endless shopping and restaurants! Screened in side porch and front porch. Huge driveway for mulitple car parking. High chair and porta crib available. All linens available upon request.

                      Quiet streets that are super for biking, walking, and running. Several wonderful parks close by for the children to enjoy and a almost new library with 36 computers for your use in walking distance.

                      The beach in Surfside is cleaned every day! This is what sold me on this community. Cleanliness thru out Surfside, wonderfully maintained by the city. No 'don's johns' at the beach, you have real restrooms for your use.

                      You can walk to the local bars and eateries. There are some great seafood places in Murriel's Inlet, which is 15 minutes away.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: I am a full time Real Estate Broker, builder, a grandma, and a farm owner with over 140 acres close to Washington, D.C.. Loving motorcycles, beaches, and the sun....I found a piece of heaven in Surfside.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      Surfside is quiet, family orientated, safe, clean, manicured, the water is warm and clear here, I wanted parking for family and this holds 4 cars. I told my Realtor, only Surfside, ceramic floors in great room, single family home, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, walking distance to the beach! I love it, bought it without ever seeing it (except for pictures) and it ended up being better than I expected! My grandchildren have several parks to walk to, a public library walking distance with 25 computers for public use, tennis a block away, and lots of bars and eateries walking distance (no designated driver needed). I am particular about manicured lawns, safe streets for walking at night, safe neighborhoods, pristine beaches, and this town has all of that to offer.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Walk to beach, library, playgrounds, happy hour, food places.....everything is so close. The grand kids love the water parks and minature golf courses. Discount malls, flea markets, quilters cottage, thrift stores, 3 D movie theaters, Myrtle Beach has it all! Surfside has a pristine beach, it is cleaned everyday.
