About the property

Sits right ON THE BEACH !

Condo was recently purchased by an Upstate Interior Design Professional as a summer home. The entire condo was totally gutted to the studs to bring it up to today's modern standards.

Designed for well traveled adults who prefer clean updated accommodations. This 1st floor corner unit has abundant natural light and sits DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH with no dune to block the ocean or pool views. You will not believe how close you sit to the surf! Even when you are inside you feel like you are still sitting on the beach.

You will find this home to be clean, uncluttered and well stocked with a Chic' Boutique Style Hotel feel. Sync your device to the Wireless Bose Sound System, sit back and relax.

A caretaker and private hotel quality linens are exclusive to this unit to insure guest comfort. In season, from Memorial Day - Labor Day, the caretaker will arrange for beach concierge service to put up a beach umbrella and 2 chairs right at our boardwalk to the beach. The caretaker will also provide access to our private beach locker stocked with chairs, games, nets, boogie boards etc. All of these services are included in this " all inclusive rate".

To make your visit hassle free we have installed key-less electronic locks on all doors so that you can go key-less all week. For your security the code is changed weekly by our caretaker.

An ocean/pool/pier view work station is provided for the business traveler with charging stations throughout the unit for convenience. Look for the charging plugs located at each night stand and dresser.

About Tracy

Sweethearts James & Tracy have been married over 30 years and have 2 sons Nathan & Dustin. The family owns a well respected design firm in Greenville SC ... Fowler Interiors.com

The families hard work in the design business has lead to the realization of this life long dream to buy a little get-away at the beach. The condo is dedicated in memory of Tracy's beloved late Mom, Jackie.

The family stays in the condo often to enjoy vacation time and make sure everything is maintained to their high standards for guest. They have private caretakers that only care for their condo on Saturday to ensure that it is maintained immaculately.

The family counts it a blessing to be able to share this special home with others.

Tracy purchased this condo in 2017

Why Tracy chose Surfside Beach

We absolutely love the Garden City area. Very laid back and not nearly as crowded as Myrtle Beach. This condo has, by far, the best ocean views and natural light of anything we could find in this area. The view out the side of our unit across the pool and down the ocean to pier is just as stunning as the ocean view out the back. The screen porch really sealed the deal. It is cozy and private enough to have morning coffee in your bed head and sits smack dab on the ocean. The HOA is healthy and the grounds are kept well maintained. Additionally we are located next to Conch Cafe which is a favorite and so convenient. Having the outdoor beach locker to store all the beach garb was a big deal to us too.

What makes this condo unique

Our rates include linens , cleaning & beach umbrella. Our linens are privately owned and exclusive to our condo so they never leave our unit. We have a private caretaker versus the "turn & burn" 1 hour agency cleaning. Our caregiver only cares for our unit on Saturday and typically spends 6 hours detailing after each guest departure. Our attention to detail is unsurpassed. Additionally, we provide a $150 value beach chair and umbrellas put up daily in peak season ( Memorial Day - Labor Day). We are unique in every way.

Paradise Found !

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to the Garden City area for the past 12 years and stayed at 6 different properties. By far, this is the best. Is there an adjective better than perfect?

The accommodations were immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. The beds were so comfortable you would not want to get up but then you would miss the gorgeous sunrises just out your window. My favorite thing to do was to curl up in one of the seats in the sunroom and watch the sun rise or sun set. Totally relaxing and indulgent.

In addition to a fully equipped kitchen in case you want to cook, you are steps away from the Conch Cafe where you can sit outside and enjoy some fresh seafood.

The unit also has a storage locker fully equipped with beach chairs, boogie boards, etc.

the owner, Tracy, has thought of everything and is a delight to work with. She called me on my arrival date to make sure everything was as expected and told me to call if I needed anything. She was so kind and thought of little extras to make me feel so welcome — fresh flowers in the bedroom and a thoughtful hospitality basket.

I came here because I knew my best friend, who recently died of pancreatic cancer and was my traveling companion, would have it. Being here, listening to the surf and experiencing the changing moods of the ocean, was healing. Thank you, Tracy, for helping me in this ongoing process. I enjoyed talking to you. You are the best. I hope you’ll let me return next year.

Awesome Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome place right on the beach. Tracy was so wonderful to work with and the little extras shows how much she enjoys taking care of the people that stay here. The view is second to none. The décor is nothing like you will see anywhere else. Great detail has been taken to make this a place of your dreams. Pool side with unobstructed views up and down the beach make this a place you will return to. Close to lots of good restaurants make this a complete vacation home. Enjoyed immensely if you couldn't already tell and look forward to a return trip.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

So nice! I had a feeling that after looking at the pics (which are honest, accurate, etc...), reading the description/reviews and speaking with the owner that this would meet my needs and did it ever! I will definitely be back. Im sitting on the sofa right now looking at the beach and am a bit melancholy because I have to leave in just two days. My reservation was from Dec. 16-30, 2017. I'd say the beach here must have been recently renurished, its in very good condition and made my walks to the pier extra pleasant. From inside the condo you feel as though you can reach out and touch the waves. So Beautiful! The condo has been designed and appointed to maximize the space just perfectly. I could seriously move right in! The bedding is very comfortable, linens are just right, furnishings well appointed....do I sound like a very happy Goldilocks? I am.

You will not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exactly as depicted with direct views of the ocean from the master bedroom, living room, dining room, and the well-equipped kitchen. The condo is very luxurious, the building well-maintained and quiet. All was spotlessly clean and the linens and towels generously supplied. Tracy is very responsive and a talented designer. The beach is steps away and is very clean. This is a must stay! Our only regret is not staying longer.

#1 Condo in Garden City

  • 5 of 5

The owner’s description sums it all up “If being in a beautiful clean space with unsurpassed beach views matter to you ... then look no further. THIS IS IT !” YES - IT IS!! This beautifully decorated condo is located in the absolutely perfect location in Garden City with exceptional views. Condo is truly immaculate. Master bed is just amazing and comfy, providing a perfect night’s rest. Keyless access was so handy. Kitchen AND beach closet are well stocked. Washer and dryer located in closet off the front porch was an added convenience. Easy parking and just a short drive to great restaurants and shopping. Tracy is so easy to communicate with and happy to give recommendations to make your stay perfect. She thinks of it all – even has a welcoming gift basket. Look no further! You will fall in love with this space the moment you open the door.

Conveniently located close to some of the best area attractions, Garden City Beach is directly south of Surfside Beach and ends on a peninsula at the mouth of Murrells Inlet. One of the most renowned attractions in Garden City Beach is the Pier at Garden City. Other attractions include Marlin Quay Marina, Gulf Stream Cafe, Original Sam's Corner, and Sara J's Seafood Restaurant. Just south of Garden City Beach is Murrells Inlet, a seaside community that is considered to be the "Seafood Capital of South Carolina", but is also home to some of the nation's best golf courses. Once primarily a fishing village, the town is best known for the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk, a half-mile long boardwalk overlooking a pristine salt marsh, and the many award-winning seafood and barbecue restaurants along Highway 17 Business in the central business district. Brookgreen Gardens, a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve built on four former rice plantations, is located slightly south of Murrells Inlet. It features several themed gardens with American figurative sculptures placed in them, trails through several nature reserve ecosystems and the Lowcountry Zoo. If you're looking for places to shop, Inlet Square Mall, The Market Common, Coastal Grand, Myrtle Beach Mall, Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, two Tanger shopping outlets, Hammock Shops @ Pawley's Island, countless strip-malls, and many more shopping facilities are all within an easy drive from Garden City Beach. Looking for some entertainment, take in a show at Alabama Theater, Medieval Times, The Carolina Opry, Pirates Voyage, and Legends in Concert. And don't forget about Ripley's Aquarium, Alligator Adventure, Hard Rock Cafe, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, and The Pavilion Nostalgia Park. Other points of interest close by include the waterfront community of Georgetown, the third oldest city in South Carolina and second largest seaport in South Carolina, and historic Conway with its downtown Riverwalk area nestled on the banks of the Waccamaw River.
