A bit pricey for what you get
We rented this house out for a family vacation. We had a total of 5 adults and 6 children. The house was big enough for all of us. The house isn't amazing. But it's comfortable. It's in a nice community that offers a water park for the children. The house is close to the beach and comes with a golf cart. That was definitely nice.
We did run into a few issues. Our first load of laundry clogged the washer and someone had to be called. This was taken out of our deposit. The clothes were all rinsed off with the outside hose. There wasn't sand on the clothes when they were put into the washer. Of course, the owners blamed us. Of course, it can't possibly be a build up of sand from previous guests. I have since washed all of our clothes in our own washer- without rinsing first- and have had zero problems.
The sink in the bathroom didn't have a stopper. Unfortunately a child in our home was bouncing a small ball and it happened to land in the sink. This was charged to us as well. It could have been prevented if the sink had only had a small piece to block that- as most sinks do. Kids will be kids. But the owners stated: "My wife did tell your wife to make sure the kids did not place any toys in the sink. She said they would never do that, oh well!!!" Pretty professional. They did not purposely put a toy in the sink. Get a stopper.
We vacuumed the floors many times. But the vacuums are not in great working condition. Please bring your own. Apparently there were crumbs left on the floor. There were no pictures taken of this. The owners state: "I know what I saw."
We are landlords ourselves. We know what to expect and we know how to clean.
Take pictures of the entire home before you enter. Know exactly what it looked like before so you can let the owners know, as they may have missed something.
Do not bring young children. It isn't that much more to stay in a hotel for this length of time. I would rather do that and get a cleaning service and better quality.
“Thanks again for letting us use your house this last week. We had a fantastic time!” This was in an email received from this guest 1 day after his departure.
The guest stated, the home was large enough for 11 guests, was comfortable, in a nice community, waterpark for the kids, close to the beach and even comes with a golf cart, and definitely nice.
We have shared our home with hundreds of guests over the 12 years on VRBO and this is the first time our home was left in a condition not suitable for the next guest. As the homeowner we take pride in providing a nice, clean vacation home at a reasonable price. We take steps to make sure the home is 100% vacation ready when a quests arrives. Part of that process is having the same person, for 12+ years, performing all post departure inspections and preparation of the home if necessary.
In regards to this review, it is true that there were issues. None were related to the home or the vacation experience but there were self-imposed by the guests themselves. We simply ask the guest to leave the home in the same condition as it was in when they arrived.
First of all, the guest failed to mention in the review that someone in the group damaged a ceiling mounted light fixture, and left it dangling from the ceiling by the wires. Pictures were provided and they were charged with the repair. This was not leaving the home in the same condition as it was in when they arrived.
As for the cleaning issue mentioned in the review, the home was in no way clean enough for the next guest to arrive, they left poorly cleaned/vacuumed floors and food spillage all over the front of the stove and in the floor (picture provided to guest). Per the agreement, they were only billed for the time involved to make the home ready for the next guest.
On the 3rd night and 3rd morning I received 2 different requests for service: 1st a washer failure, 2nd poor drainage in the plumbing. The tech stated the washer pump shut down due to sand clogging the pump. Reminder sign is posted on the washer: thoroughly rinse sand from clothes/towels prior to using the washer. Based on the tech statement I split the bill with the guest. The plumber found a child’s toy ball to be clogging a fixture (which was not reported) and another fixture to be seriously clogged with paper products and no other issues. They were only billed for the removal of the child’s toy from the fixture.
We appreciate the opportunity to clarify this review.
EXCELLENT VACATION SPOT!!!
Nice, clean rental with plenty of room! Perfect location! Very close to the beach. Our family will def. rent again!!!! Listing is very accurate. Family friendly, laid back community. Many attractions for the children. Looking forward to booking for next summer!!!!!
Fantastic for families with young children
The property was very clean and comfortable. The owner responded quickly to questions and was delightful to work with. The location is perfect - it's a leisurely five-minute walk to the beach (my in-laws generally walked there faster than my husband, three children, and I traveled in the golf cart), and equally close to two swimming pools, a playground, and a basketball court. Grocery shopping is very nearby, and it's also very close to a great waterpark. I recommend Painter's Homemade Ice Cream, which is a short drive away. We also (when we left the kids with their grandparents) enjoyed seafood in Murrell's Inlet at the Hot Fish Club.
When we returned home, one of my four year-olds said, "Mommy, can we ride on the golf cart to the indoor pool?" She's ready to go back tomorrow; the grown-ups in the group, sadly, must go back to work. We will definitely stay at this Surfside home when we next go to the beach, and we'll strongly recommend it to everyone we know.
Our family had a really nice time in Surfside Beach this year. The owner of this property is great to work with, answering all of my questions about things to do and also setting up the linen service. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful with great areas to walk and ride the golf cart (which is a wonderful addition!). The walking distance from the house to the beach is so minimal that even teenagers didn't complain about making the walk! The house is small but very comfortable. The master bedroom and bath and second full bath are plenty large enough, with the other 3 bedrooms being small. However, all you do is sleep in them because there is much to do in the area! The kitchen/dining room are both of good size (the table seats 8) and the kitchen is well stocked. All appliances worked properly and I missed nothing from my home kitchen. Definitely get the linen service! It was so nice to come in and have the beds already made up and feel clean and crisp. I was concerned that they wouldn't provide enough towels considering that we would have 5 girls total, so I brought a few bath towels, but we never needed them. Plenty of towels and washcloths. The beach here is a little more crowded then we are used to in some other places, however the kids loved it (all teenagers). They really liked the basketball court and even made some "friends" for the week. All in all this is a really good property to rent! Happy vacationing!!
