About Gaby Guyton

This property is owned jointly by five siblings. Four of us live in SC and one in GA. We are a close-knit family comprised of 1 brother and 4 sisters(all married). The five of us have 16 children and 12 grandchildren. We enjoy spending as much time as possible at our beach home.

Gaby Guyton purchased this house in 1990

Why Gaby Guyton chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

Our family has always loved Garden City...our parents first purchased a home there in 1948 (directly across the street from our current location) and have been there ever since. We have rebuilt several times after hurricanes and in 1990 ended up rebuilding behind our original location! We have enjoyed growing up there...swimming, fishing, skiing, shrimping, crabbing and enjoying one of SC's finest sunny beaches! Garden City is a wonderful beach for families to make fantastic memories!

There are many attractions and activities in close proximity to the house.

What makes this house unique

Spacious yard area, large stationary (partially covered) and floating docks, private boat ramp, ample on-property parking, breeze way under the house to catch the ocean breeze. Crabbing, fishing, boating and shrimping in the inlet are right at your back door. There are fabulous restaurants close by, fantastic shopping, great golfing,,,too many attactions to name!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is very clean and wonderfully welcoming. We love all the places to sit and the screened in back porch! My children are giving me a hard time because the bread box is identical to the one in our house while they were growing up and I still have baskets above my cabinets at home. They say that I would get along well with "the owners of this beach house". I told them you must be good people. Hope this finds you well. Jean

Relaxing and very family friendly

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed this home! It is really the best of both worlds... You can enjoy the beach in the front and do some fishing in the back yard. The screened in back porch was so relaxing in the evenings. You are close enough to everything you need but just far enough away to have a nice peaceful beach. We have no complants about this vaction rental. Gaby was an absolute pleasure to work with and even had our deposit back very fast. We look forward to staying here again :)

Just wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here in Sept. 2010 for our annual family reunion. The house was just what we needed. It was spacious, set up well, had all the extras we needed. The location was perfect. You got the ocean and the marsh all in one. I really cannot say enough good things about the house.

The owners were great to work with and made things easy. We thought we had left a GPS at the house and they even went and looked for it for us!!!

We LOVED staying here and will stay here for years to come.
