Golf Colony Resort at Deertrack condo description
Ground floor unit in a private community with pool, hot tub, and picnic areas just out back door. Secure Wi-Fi just added.
New payment system. You can pay with Visa/Mastercard/Discover/Debit card or E-check securely on line with no fee.
Great development for family vacations. The pool area was completely updated in 2011 with all new furniture, hot tub and newly landscaped picnic areas right out your back door.
Drive 5-10 minutes to the family friendly beaches of Surfside or Garden City. Public parking is plentiful at all beaches not to mention there are two state parks on the beach. Myrtle Beach State Park about 10 minutes to the North and Huntingdon Beach State Park to the south of Murrells inlet.
There are fishing piers on both Surfside and Garden City as well as both state parks. Murrells Inlet has a number of Charter boats available, and there are numerous Marinas that offer boat rentals.
For the golfer there are over one hundred top notch courses lining the Grand Strand. Not to mention driving ranges, Par 3 courses, and countless pro-shops to pick up what you forgot to bring.
At night, there are plenty of restaurants ranging from family oriented budget minded buffets, to 1st class restaurants of all types. For the family, Myrtle Beach just recently completed their new boardwalk. Check it out. 20 minutes North is 'Broadway at the Beach', a large outdoor mall that has everything, including shopping, movies, restaurants, Nascar miniature race track, Ripley's Aquarium, and much more. For mom and dad's entertainment there is also Planet Hollywood, Hardrock Cafe, and other numerous clubs in the Broadway complex. Also to the south about 15 minutes is Murrells Inlet, the fishing capital of the South, and home to some of the best seafood around, as well as some great waterfront bars/restaurants.
Great day trips to such sights as the U.S.S. North Carolina in Wilmington, NC., or to the south the historic town of Georgetown, and further south the city of Charleston, SC. Which has some of the most beautiful historically restored architecture you will see. Closer to home is Brookgreen Gardens, a beautiful botanical garden filled with statues, and wonderful landscaping.
At the end of your day return home to your fully furnished home away from home. In 2010 we updated the living room with new furniture as well as a 40' flat screen HD television with over 200 channels and Blu-Ray player (Which plays standard DVD's). A new dining set in the Dining Area, and fresh paint throughout the unit in the fall of 2013. The kitchen is fully stocked with all items needed to cook a meal at home. There is nothing worse than renting a place with a full kitchen that has little or no utensils when it is time to cook....
We have tried to not only make our place comfortable and full of the necessary amenities but more importantly, we try to keep our rates low and family friendly. Having vacationed with 4-5 kids when we were younger, we realize the importance of a reasonable place to stay. Save your money for the important things on vacation. 10 years from now, no one will remember how close they were to the beach, but rather the things they did on vacation.

Owner response: Chuck, I am glad that we were able to accommodate you and your family for a last minute vacation. I am also glad you found the unit to be in good shape and the outside landscaping as well. I was recently down there myself and quite pleased with the new landscaping as well. I hope to see and your family again in the future.
This is the place to be if you're on a budget.

I found Mr. Vetter very pleasant to speak to. His place was exactly as he described as listed here on the site. It was a bit further from the ocean than I had thought although knowing this now, I would have still rented his place. Very budget conscious with a stove, microwave, etc. George the care taker was very nice and had a bubbly personality. I was not impressed with the cleaning of the condo because the kitchen floor was sticky as I walked on it and the sheets in the closet were thrown on the floor. We did have an issue with the washing machine not working and after contacting Mr. Vetter he had the service people there the next day and they fixed it. I appreciated the fast repair and was able to wash my familys clothes. I absolutely will rent from Mr. Vetter again. The pool and hot tub are maintained and are clean as well as the overall shape of the condo.

Owner response: Thank you for your kind words and comments. The beach is a short drive and although I characterize it as a "5" minute drive, I realize that it can take a little longer at times. I am glad you found everything to be as described, and more importantly I am glad I could get the washer serviced as quickly as I did. I regret that the floors were not properly cleaned, I am sure it is something that the service overlooked. I would gladly welcome you to return again next year, and I hope that you recommend us to friends and family.
The location of this condo was excellent and the owners were wonderful to deal with. The pool and hot tub are right out your back door. Parking was adequate. The unit offered very nice furnishings and supplied necessary cleaning products. A new refrigerator was delivered during our stay. We would stay at the Vetter's property again.

Owner response: Thank you for your kind review. I hope the refrigerator delivery did not hamper your good time. I was hoping to make it till the end of season but the old fridge just did not want to cooperate. I am glad you found the furnishings nice and enjoyed the pool/hot tub being out back. Most people do. Would love to have you back again anytime.
Before we arrived Bill, the owner, was very prompt and gave us all the information we requested in a timely fashion. After we arrived, we had a small issue, that Bill was not aware of, and I have to say he quickly addressed the problem and was so nice and caring regarding our issue. The condo had furniture that was like new, a big screen TV, DVD player. Pool and hot tub were beautiful, and we could see the maintenance man testing the water and cleaning up every single morning. The neighbors that are residence there were all very nice. It was very quiet and for the most part you had the pool area to yourself. The only issue we had, which we have not yet brought up to the owner because it wasn't that big of a deal was the WiFi, you had to go out of the condo to have it work as well as phone and texting service. We had a great vacation and would probably rent this condo again if we decide to come back to SC.

Owner response: Kim, I am glad you and your family enjoyed your vacation and more importantly, I am glad you called when there was an issue. It is a long rental season and you sometimes hit a bump in the road. I am just glad we could deal with the issue and it did not affect your good time. Regarding the WiFi, I have had problems with it off and on since it was put in the development. I have been looking for an alternative that is reasonable. I do hope that you choose to return to the area again, we love to have repeat business.
We had a great time! The condo was exactly what we envisioned, and it was so nice to have the pool right outside. It was a short drive to the beach, and we had a wonderful and relaxing vacation! Bill was so nice, and easy to contact and deal with. Hopefully we can stay here again in the future.

Owner response: Lynda, we are glad you enjoyed your vacation. My wife and I are always pleased to receive good reviews, and more importantly always happy to have guests return. I hope you will refer us to friends and relatives as well.
Thank you for letting us rent your condo for 4 months. We had a great stay and met some very nice folks. The grounds and pool area were very clean and nicely landscaped. The new trees around the pool are great. Everything was close by and easy to get to from the ocean to places to eat and shop. We want to especially thank your "caretaker" George. What a great guy. He was always helpful and just fun to spend time with. We look forward to our stay next year.

The communication with the owner prior to the trip was excellent and the so was the rental fee. The caretaker did the best he could to accommodate our requests. But we experienced so many problems with this unit. The oven was broken and therefore unusable. The day we arrived (Saturday) we were promised that it would be fixed on Monday, but it was never fixed during our stay. This made our plan to save money by cooking for ourselves impossible. Also upsetting was the sliding glass door that didn’t lock. With the unit being on the ground floor, the lack of a lock made us feel very unsettled regarding our security in the unit. The fridge was leaking some sort of brown fluid and the front of the door was completely rusty. Upon entering the unit we were greeted with a strong cigarette odor. The caretaker brought us some Febreeze, which helped, but had I known it was a smoking unit, I would not have booked it. Also, when we first arrived in the unit there was no hand soap. I would have thought that the cleaning crew would have checked this, but George was very courteous about replenishing right away. Also, the unit was not clean. We were appalled at how dirty it was even upon arrival. When I lost an earring and looked for it under the bed I was even more disgusted! Not all of the items promised in the description were as described. The newly renovated pool deck is very nice but there was no hot tub. It was being renovated and apparently has been in that process since April. At this point it is still a hole in the ground. While the new furniture was very nice, we had planned on using the sleeper sofa that was in the description of the unit. Fortunately we were able to accommodate using the air mattress provided. But to be honest the floor was so dirty no one wanted to be close to it. In the 2nd bedroom, the bedside lamp was broken and the weird window with the shutters that is between the bedroom and the kitchen really does not allow for privacy for the occupants of that room. The screen to the porch was broken which allowed a gecko to enter the porch area. While my son was delighted it scared me. The location was very close to all the attractions of Myrtle Beach and it was not a bad drive to the beach. It is also close to the southern part of the Strand which has many interesting things to see and do. I would love to be able to say that I would rent this unit again, but I wouldn’t, nor would I recommend it.

Owner response: Larraine, I regret the fact that you found your accommodations so bad. However at no time during your stay did you ever call me, either at my home or cell number that I provided. Some/all of these issues could have been corrected had you done so. The oven door handle, damaged/not reported by a previous guest, has been repaired. It required (1) screw, and the repairman assured me that the oven & stovetop were usable and he sees no reason that a person could not cook on it. He also reports that the sliding patio door lock was loose but in working order. The repairman also pointed out that there is a security bar (common practice for anyone that has a sliding patio door) to place on the inside track to secure the door as well. The refrigerator, an older model, has rusted due to the humidity of the Carolina’s however it keeps food cold and fresh. Over the last year we have updated the things that make for a comfortable vacation. New bedding, furniture, Blue Ray player, HD television, etc… The refrigerator just hasn’t been gotten around to yet. As for cigarette smoke, my listing clearly states that smoking is only permitted on the outdoor patio. I have had the cleaner place air freshener under the kitchen sink for future issues. The hot tub is the only part of pool area not complete yet. It was supposed to be done by summer, however the pool and furniture are all new with a new childproof gate. The lamp in the middle bedroom has a broken switch & has been taken out of service until a new one can be purchased, however the ceiling fan in the room has a light on it providing ample light to the room. I am at a loss regarding the complaint of the “broken” screen door. It is a screen door on an outdoor, screened patio, in a wooded area. A Gecko (as seen on Geico commercials) is a harmless lizard that usually runs if you even look at them. I have sat on that patio with gecko’s and tree frogs on many occasions. Once I even saw an ant out there… I feel silly writing this long explanation to all of your complaints, but it seems that you spent what should have been a relaxing vacation walking around my unit with a notepad and pen looking for defects. I am surprised you had time to even find the beach let alone the Grand Strand. My wife and I try very hard to keep the unit updated, and the cleaning service has always been reliable at keeping the unit clean, I guess you just can’t please everyone.
We enjoyed our stay in your condo, thanks for making the trip so easy by having all the accomadations available. We will recommend your place to family and friends as it was reasonably priced and meet our needs! thanks again!!

Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed our stay at Surfside. The condo had everything we needed and was very well kept. We feel we were very lucky to find a place that was so reasonably priced. I hope we can stay again some time soon. I would highly recommend your condo to friends, family or whoever!

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: I am a civil servant (Correctional Captain) for the City of Philadelphia and my wife is a Registered Nurse, working in the Emergency Room at Temple Hospital. Our schedules are hectic to say the least and our children are grown, so when we get a chance to relax this is one of the places we like to go.
Why the Owner Chose Golf Colony Resort at Deertrack:
Originally purchased because as a golfer, I found myself traveling down this way a couple times a year. Besides golf though there is plenty of shopping, great restaurants, and amusement parks all within 20 minutes of you. I have been coming to the area for almost 20 years and love the relaxing atmosphere. Surfside is quiet yet close enough to the action of Myrtle Beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I gotta say that being close to all the Major highways and only 20 minutes from the Myrtle Beach Airport makes it great. However, any time of year I love the fact that the pool, hot tub and deck area are just out the back door. Sometimes you just don't feel like packing everything up and going to the beach. Relax on the back porch and watch the kids play in the pool. Grill out for dinner, and later while the kids watch T.V. you can enjoy the hot tub as the sun sets over the trees... Thats what it is all about.... :)
