About Gene & Kelley Clark

Trying to enjoy the second half of our lives as all 3 of our girls are in College. Never a bad day being on the beach........

Gene & Kelley Clark purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gene & Kelley Clark chose Surfside Beach

We grew up visiting Surfside Beach during our Family summer vacations. This has always been a special place to visit, it has been a dream of ours to own property on the beach. We hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we do.

We will be doing some major upgrades starting in December to the entire Unit. We will update this site with NEW pics once all the work has been finished!!

What makes this condo unique

When we visit Windhaven 101, we cannot wait to fall asleep to the soothing sounds of waves crashing on the shore. And there are few pleasures greater than sipping morning coffee on the balcony while watching the sun rise or enjoying a family meal while fragrant sea breezes waft gently through the condo. From the moment you enter the unit, you are at the beach with oceanfront views all around!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Arrived Saturday to a glorious day - sunny and ocean temp warm enought to walk right in. Our daughter and her companion joined us the first week. We cooked on the bbq three times that week. We also had the pleasure of visiting with his sister and her husband who live in the areal. We had a fabulous day Friday - their last - and they left Saturday. We had a quieter second week with some cloudy, windy days, during which we entertained ourselves by reading, movies, shopping, etc. Friday (19th) our last day was a beautiful, sunny day spent by the pool. Two weeks have flown by and it's home tomorrow. We found the condo to be very comfortable and clean with everything we needed. We look forward to returning in the future!

What a WONDERFUL Stay!! Relaxing & great LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is Exactly as shown in photos, Location and VIEW cannot be beat! I enjoyed this lovely condo in the off season and everything was so peaceful and quiet. Location of condo is north of the SS Pier, which makes it great for getting away from things. Still a short walk to pier with a few restaurants and shops etc. Close to everything else you would want to do in Myrtle Beach, probably all within a 10-15 minute drive. (Broadway at the Beach, Outlets, Restaurants, Murrells Inlet, Mall, Airport). I choose this condo for the location, the fact that it offered the master bedroom Ocean Front, nothing better then waking up to the sunrise! Also the fact that is has EVERYTHING you would need without the clutter! So nice that the beds were made up, no need to drag linens and bath towels. Although I did no cooking, kitchen looked as though they had everything you could possibly need! We did put the Keurig to good use! Owners were GREAT to work with, always was in reach of communication when needed. Smaller complex, has its own pool ocean front and shared by just the six units. (Pool was closed during our stay, but still very pretty, especially at night. Even a elevator if needed! Thank you so much Gene and Kelly for sharing your beautiful home. Hopefully I can do it again next fall and perhaps even spring!!

Owner's Response: Sheryl, Thanks for the kind words about our Condo. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. We do take a lot of pride to make it as comfortable as possible so you can just relax during your stay. We love the location as well as it is close enough to everything but also does not have the crowds like MB. It was very nice working with you as you were very professional and very helpful through out your stay. Looking forward to working with you again in the near future for any of you vacation needs! Thanks so much Gene & Kelley

Breath Taking

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Windhaven. The Condo was immaculate and the landscape breath taking. The views of the sunsets and sunrises over the ocean were breath taking.

Beach access was convenient with the private walk way.

I will be going back next year and would not hesitate to recommend Windhaven to my friends.

Great place, beach, community

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week with my wife and 2 year old, opted for an extra bedroom (3) for local friends to stay or have a room for their kids to nap...glad we did. Beautiful place, just as the pics show- updated and tasteful, clean, comfy. Great views from nearly every room, truly "sounds of the sea" as we kept the door open at night and fell asleep to the ocean. Coffee on the balcony was memorable each morning and a great spot to soak in the sun while the kid was napping. Also set up the tent and chairs on the beach and could see from The condo, pretty close. Very glad we did not stay in ocean lakes, too many rules (parking included- daily fees) and crowded with RV's (about a half mile away). We heard the sliding doors shutting in other condos and light footsteps here and there- but honestly nothing I wouldn't expect having lived in apartments- not an annoyance. The owners were super responsive and great to work with, peace of mind with their straight forward and simple pricing (no hidden and all inclusive). Loved the community, definitely family friendly and cute shops and restaurants within walking. 5 minutes to grocery including Lowes foods, for those seeking organic options (hard to find in SC!). Would recommend and stay again!

Owner's Response: John, Glad you guys had a great stay! I know it was up in the air with Irma but Thankfully it all worked out. We feel the same way about Surfside, it is great community. Everything is close by and hard to beat the beaches. It was very nice working with you guys. Hopefully we can do it again in the near future. Thanks again for the kind words! Gene & Kelley

Love Surfside Beach area!!!

  • 4 of 5

I loved the rental area. The house was very nice and spacious enough for six although the advertisement said it sleeps eight. There was a cot of some sort in a bedroom closet, however, it looked a little cumbersome to me. The accessibility to the beach was perfect! I was most disappointed that when we arrived, the house had not been cleaned and prepped for our arrival. Unfortunately we had to wait a couple of hours before we could really get comfortable. I contacted the owner who got on this right away. The owner, cleaning and linen ppl were all nice and apologetic. It would have been nice if the owner offered some kind of compensation for our inconvenience. I tend to have a forgiving spirit as I realize mistakes do happen. But.....

Owner's Response: Glad you guys liked Surfside Beach, we feel it is one of the best beaches in SC. Again we are so sorry on the cleaning, our cleaning crew takes pride in having things done right and on time. This is why we have stayed with them for the past few years. They literally had this down to clean for the next day and felt horrible about this. This is the only time in 4 years that this has occurred. I know we jumped on it right away but hate that it happened. I was worried as we were getting on a flight but knew they would take care of it. If you want to rent this condo from us again we will offer you a discount for the hassle of not having this done prior. We would of course work with you on that!!

Perfect Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about Windhaven! It was by far the most relaxing vacation we have had yet. Once we were able to unwind from the hustle of daily life we did not want to leave!! You are definitely able to forget about all the craziness at home!!

The other reviews are very on target. Gene was very prompt in responding to any questions. The condo is very clean and nicely decorated. Surfside Beach is very family friendly and not as busy as the Myrtle Beach area but still close enough to engage in any activity you wish.

I highly recommend to anyone!!!

Looking forward to working with you guys again! Gene & Kelley
