Off season we spend as much time at Katy’s Dream as we can. Professionally decorated, and updated every year, we hope our beach house will feel like your home away from home.

One of our favorite activities is sipping coffee and watching the sunrise from the upper level porch.
Our beach house is minutes away from golf, shopping, water parks, miniature golf, and live entertainment. We love the restaurants in nearby Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island, boat tours from historic Georgetown, and day trips to Charleston (90 miles).

About Kathy Jenkins
We built Katy's Dream as a family second home and gathering place. Over the years we have held many joyful times with our large family over Christmas and other holidays. We were both raised in the Pittsburgh area and have lived in many different places around the country as job promotions presented themselves. Therefore, we have many friends from all over the USA. We both graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Kathy has a masters in education from Brennau University and taught school for 30 years. I (Chuck) got my masters from the University of Pittsburgh and I am still active as an HR professional and consultant. We (actually Kathy as I was always traveling for business) raised two excellent children who are married and we are the proud grandparents of 3 boys and 3 girls. We currently live in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina (near Charleston) and plan to retire there. So we are close by, if needed, but far enough away at the same time.
Kathy Jenkins purchased this House in 2007
Why Kathy Jenkins chose Surfside Beach
For many years we rented a home in Long Bay Estates about 4 miles north of SSB. This area became our annual family vacation place. Over the years we shared these vacation weeks with friends we have made from all over the country and many of them today have become residents of the area in retirement. When the opportunity presented itself for us to build our own home here we never hesitated. We found a solid builder who was building a duplex on the property. We immediately contacted close friends who were living in Chicago at the time whom we knew also wanted to buy a property in the area and they bought their beach house sight unseen with our recommendation. It has been a great partnership and you will notice a lot of similarities between the two units. It was planned that way. The property is probably in the best possible location it can be. We are in the heart of SSB, 3 rows back from the beach, close to restaurants, bars, shopping, playgrounds, library and all the best the area has to offer. Katy's Dream is our home away from home and our sanctuary. We hope it becomes yours also.
What makes this House unique
We love to sit at the heated pool after a morning on the beach or a round of golf and watch the kids splash in the water. It is a great place to sit and chill out with a beverage. Those that love to cook will find Kathy's kitchen with everything you can possibly need. The front porches are perfect to sit in the morning and watch the sun rise with a cup of coffee and a book. Our living area is comfortable and has all the entertainment equipment you will need and we have plenty of family games in the cabinet under the HDTV. Home away from home, sanctuary, relax all describe Katy's Dream and how we hope you feel after spending a week there.

What a Great Place To Stay !!!
Our family recently had a wonderful vacation in Surfside. And staying at Katy's Dream only made the trip that much more memorable. The house is all that you could ask for in a vacation property. It is spacious, clean and fully equipped with all of the electronics, appliances and kitchen utensils that you would need. The beach is only 1.5 blocks away and the small retail district has good casual restaurants and small shops --- but not so much as to generate a lot of traffic.
We would highly recommend this property to anyone and would plan on booking again on any future trip to Surfside Beach.
Awesome Vacation Rental
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Katy's Dream. The owner was extremely easy to work with....answering questions promptly and offering additional information about the area. The house was immaculate. The pool was cleaned several times the week that we were there. The owner has thought of everything. There is a small bookshelf upstairs with a variety of books, there is a cabinet with games, cards, poker chips, etc. The kitchen is well stocked with every possible kitchen gadget that could possibly be needed. She supplied garbage bags, liquid dish detergent, and detergent for the dishwasher. The decks and pool area are great places to hang out. The beach is a short walk 2-3 minutes from the house. There is plenty of parking. We rented a golf cart which was great to transport all our items to the beach. Several restaurants within walking distance. Surfside has a community feel which we really enjoyed. We also felt that the house was an excellent value for the price. Would highly recommend.
Katies Dream has everything and then some...well updated, full kitchen, and the cleanest home I have vacationed in.
The owner answered every question I had before booking. The pool is immaculate and maintained every day !!
The house is less than a 2 minute walk to the pier !! If your going to Surfside, book it early, there's a reason why its booked all summer...Thanks Katie !!
We stayed here before and returned for a couples get away at Katy's Dream. Search no more...this beautiful beach home has it all! It truly shows the pride of ownership. This lovely home is spotless, with a well supplied kitchen, pool, and a great location. We walked to the beach and restaurants. The owners were happy to recommend more wonderful restaurants to us. We walked to Malibu Restaurant in Surfside. Don't let the name fool you for this is a great Italian restaurant, "old school" Mom makes it all and her son explains the menu and what she has made special for that evening. The owners also recommended Aspen Grill in Myrtle Beach, loved it!
If you want beach and a beautiful place to stay, this is it! I highly recommend staying at Katy's Dream.
