About Suzanne Ward

We love everything about the beach. For us there is no better place. The sun, the sand, the people, the wildlife. Everyone is happy at the beach. We enjoy our condo as much as we can and are constantly working to make it a nice vacation rental. Since we bought it we have replaced/repaired just about everything. Windows, appliances, countertops, tile in the living areas, HVAC, furniture are just a few. There is still some to do, but in the meantime, it really is a nice place to vacation.

Being oceanfront is priceless to us. We love the balcony. The sunrises are wonderful. I like to get up and watch the sun rise then head back to bed for a little more sleep. Watching the kids play on the beach, couples walking hand in hand, wildlife swimming and flying by are just a few thing to enjoy. My Mom and I enjoy watching the surfers in the afternoon.

No matter what you like to do at the beach, it's all close by from where we are.

Suzanne Ward purchased this condo in 2008

Why Suzanne Ward chose Murrells Inlet

We had to be 'oceanfront'. Second row just would not do. We love to be able to walk to the pier or Sams Corner for a hotdog and the arcade and amusement places. Having a beach shop across the street is pretty nice too. The condo is easy to get to. The beach is not packed like down the road where all the highrises are. We just love the location.

What makes this condo unique

The sunrises are to die for most mornings. I love being able to see the beach from just about anywhere in the condo. We fall asleep at night and wake up in the morning to the sound of the ocean.

We are located within a block of the Garden City Pier that offers fishing, food, cocktails, music and an arcade. The bank is moved to the end of the pier in the evening. We enjoy hanging out on the balcony and listening. They stop at 10.

We also have use of the pool at The Kingfisher which is locoed just next door. They ask that you please check in with their front desk and tell them who you are the first time you use the pool. Thank you.

The Sand Dollar is located in the heart of Garden CIty. You can walk to a several restaurants, arcades, rides and shopping. There is small grocery store that well stocked a short walk away.

We had a great experience!

  • 4 of 5

The location was awesome! Right on the beach and next to the pier. We had adequate room during our stay. We had six people with us and at times it was a little tight but the excellent location made it worth it. It is worth mentioning that the wifi is spotty. The owner was aware and left info about it at the condo. While wifi may not be important to some, it was to our family. We still had a great time and would stay again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a nice vacation and hope you will come back. The WIFI equipment is supposed to be replaced in the next few I've been told by the HOA.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. I am so sorry about the WIFI. The HOA just contracted with Spectrum, the only provider available to us in our location. They apparently have upgraded their equipment and most of their customers are having pretty major issues. My property manager is working to resolve the problems this week.

The condo was very nice in all ways. Very comfortable and clean. Decorated very nicely and furniture and other fixtures were relatively new. It contained everything you needed to have a nice time. The only problem we had and we knew this going in was that the queen size bed was a little too small for us. We are used to a king size bed. But as I say we knew this when we booked the reservation. The location is very convenient to everything that you could want. Loved being close to the Garden City pier! I would recommend to anyone who does not need a king size bed!
