About Karen Reed
Karen Reed-owner I love living at the beach. The resort is in a quiet area, and is located between Myrtle Beach and Murrells Inlet. I love being in a golf cart community.
Karen Reed purchased this House in 2008
Why Karen Reed chose Garden City
Is less crowded that Myrtle beach, but is only a 5 min drive to Myrtle Beach, is really the best of all worlds...close to Murrells Inlet--best seafood restaurants! Love the amenities of indoor/outdoor pool, large playground area, and tennis courts, and is close to the beach! I love riding the golf cart around at night, and going over to look at the moon reflecting on the ocean. I love drinking a cup of coffee while watching the sun rise over the ocean! Oceanside Village is a private, gated, family-focused community which offers other amenities such as volley ball courts, fitness center, baseball field, fishing, lakes and more.
What makes this House unique
Driving golf cart to the beach and to the Conch cafe for Oceanfront Dining--(best shrimp po boy ever!!..walking or riding golf cart to private beach access. Newly installed shower/restroom area in oceanfront/beach parking lot area is great for rinsing sand off. Side yard at the house provides an area to play games, quiet cul de sac is great place to ride bikes. Enjoy relaxing in the rocking chairs while watching the children play. Comfortable king size bed is great after a hard day of relaxing on the beach. Secure internet is nice to check email, catch up on work, or to do banking away from home if needed.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Very nice home, enjoyed our stay booked for next year. The owner Karen is very nice and very accommodating.
We had a great time!
We loved the location! The house was just the right size for our group of 4 adults and 4 kids. We were able to get around easily and our host was very nice, helpful, and easy to reach. The furniture needed some updating, especially the chair and sofa bed, the kids ended up in our beds because of the springs. No ac in one of the bedrooms which meant hot nights. I was told the master bedroom was nice and cold. A window unit would be helpful. Also a grill would have been awesome. I’m not a fan of dishes on vacation. There was a charcoal grill near the pools but it was inconvenient, and also very windy and difficult to get started. Overall, we were happy with our stay, but may choose a different location in the future based on our preferences for ac in the bedroom, more comfortable sleeping arrangements for the kids, and wanting a grill. We had thought we saw one in the picture for the listing, but apparently were wrong. For those who need WiFi - it worked great. My husband worked from home on it all week!
We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Yes, a golf cart is great to have in getting to the beach and pools. WIFI is also nice to have to keep in touch with business, emails, and keeping up with news and information.
In regard to the AC in the bedroom, we had AIR Doctor Services come out and check our system. Appartently, the family prior to you felt it was too cold in that bedroom and simply closed the vent to that room. It was an easy fix for Air Doctor, and the HVAC system got a clean bill of health.
We do not offer a grill at the house due to potential fire hazard. Previously, there was an incident involving a grill, and 4 homes and a boat were caught on fire. There is a nice grilling area at the outdoor pool area for grilling.
In addition to the king bed in the master bedroom, there is a queen bed in the 2nd bedroom, day bed with trundle in the 3rd bedroom, sleeper sofa and a futon I. The den. We offer several sleeping options, and can sleep8-10.
Yes, we also,over the location of our home. A quiet cul de sac provides room for children to ride their bikes and play with llittle traffic.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Just perfect for what we needed it for
First time staying at this location and Karen was a gem to work with house was nicely sized for my party everything was easy to get too
Only downfalls would be the majority of the outlets in the house would not hold plugs in them most of the things we plugged in would easily fall out but this didn’t ruin our vacation
Nice and clean home
Everything you would need for a lovely week stay. Very clean home and a plus you don’t have to drag your linens. Karen was very quick with responding and a pleasure to speak with. Would stay here again. Thank you Karen for opening up your lovely home.
We are so glad your enjoyed your stay. Yes, we've always felt providing linens is essential. And because linens are needed (like he refrigerator), we do not charge extra for them.
So glad you enjoyed our home.
For the price, this is a nice place to stay.
I enjoyed my stay and the golf cart is a very nice thing to have for a trip to Surfside. Everything worked. The house does have some wear and tear, but I notified the owner to ensure I would not have charged for these things. Good location. Close to beach.
Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We have the house deep cleaned at the beginning and end of the summer season. Every year, we select a project for the house. Year before last, we had the ceramic tile put down in the living room and kitchen. Last year, we replaced the deck and hand rails. This fall, we are planning to renovate the kitchen. (We are pretty excited about this). Again, we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Karen
