"We have stayed in hotel like condominiums for the past couple of years that have pools, splash pads, and lazy rivers. They are so crowded and the kids only get about a foot of swimming room around them in the pool. This place in Surfside Beach was absolutely wonderful. The walk to the beach was short, simple, and refreshing. The pool was private for only our kids to enjoy. The beach was not too crowded and you could still use a tent on the beach unlike other beaches in Myrtle. The home itself was very comfortable and convenient. The furniture appeared clean and welcoming. The home was prepared with all necessities including a griddle which we have not seen at other places. It was very quiet and private but not far at all from surf shops, miniature golf, Broadway at the Beach, etc. The other families that went with us questioned the decision to stay in a private rental property but changed their opinion the moment they walked in the door. We found sand dollars in the ocean. There is a little creek that runs into the ocean within a 5 minute walk toward the pier on the beach. Our children had nets and caught little fish, a shrimp, and some crabs in the little shallow creek. I would recommend this property to other families. We would love to stay there again in the future."

"When I first found this house on the VRBO web site, I thought that it had to be "too good to be true" at this rate in June compared to others in the same area. But WOW! Was I WRONG!!! Surf & Turf was actually MORE than what we expected! Beautiful, clean, well stocked, appliances running great and the private pool and hot tub were amazing! There were even service staff that cleaned and maintained the pool and grounds. But, our BEST service came from our property manager, Alan! He went above and beyond his job description to ensure my family a pleasant stay and was a joy to work with both before and during our vacation! We fell in love with the Surfside Community and all it has to offer. So much so that we promised ourselves a return trip A.S.A.P.!! Our four grown children, spouses and grandchildren ages 2-19 had the most AWESOME vacation that we have ever had and this house played a huge part in the success of this family vacation!! IF I had to complain about anything, it would be that we did not have an ocean view as pictured because the trees now block the view BUT you can actually be on the beach with a 5 min. stroll or 3 minutes if you take the golf cart!! We can't thank you enough and we can't wait to come back!!!"

"We absolutely loved staying at Above the Mango Deck! The house was perfect for our 3 family group. The kitchen had everything we needed & enough dining room seating for all 14 of us to enjoy a few suppers "at home." The kids loved having lunch at the table by the pool. It was a nice shady spot to cool off & relax before heading back to the beach. We were so pleased with the very short walk to the beach. Much better than dealing with elevators at high rise condos. And the beach was not crowded! We could not believe all the extra beach chairs, boogie boards & coolers that were provided with the house! We had not stayed in Surfside in many years but really loved the area. Molly was wonderful to work with. Booking, payment & check-in were hassle free! Thanks so much for everything. Many great memories were made!"

"We had a wonderful week at Emerald Bay II. The house was beautiful and clean with a nice pool to cool off in. The charcoal grill was high quality. Joe was easy to work with and during our stay would personally answer my call and addressed any concerns I had. There were even kids games in the bedroom closet, as well as a beach umbrella and beach chair. We also loved the keyless entry system. It was easy for all the kids to remember a code we chose and we didn't have to worry about losing keys or returning them at checkout. The entire process was wonderful. Every bedroom had a TV which made it nice for everyone to be able to relax and watch what they wanted. I recommend this property and working with Joe. Thanks for making our week so special!!"
