About the property

5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps 10-12

Relaxing and spacious get-away... Located in the town of Surfside Beach (right next door to Myrtle Beach), this 5 bedroom, 4 bath, raised-beach style duplex home has a private pool and is only steps away from the beach. On the main level, you'll find a roomy living and dining room area with new floors installed last year. Also recently updated are the sofa bed and flat screen TV. Earlier this year, new floors were installed in the spacious, main level guest room and the upstairs hallway. The main level guest room has a Queen bed and is connected to the main level bathroom. The staircase was repainted and new treads installed. The dining room and snack counter provide enough seating for up to 12 guests and the kitchen is fully equipped. Just outside of the living room you'll find one of two large balconies. (Picture yourself relaxing in a rocking chair, while overlooking the private pool.) Upstairs you'll find 4 additional bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed, while the other bedrooms each have a queen bed. (With the sofa bed in the living room, the home sleeps up to 12 guests.) Through the master bedroom is the second spacious balcony overlooking the pool -- a great place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee.

Lounge chairs can be found in the pool area and, for the convenience of our guests, we have added a charcoal barbeque grill and new patio chairs.

Surfside Beach has spectacular sunsets and is a perfect location for families to have a great time. Enjoy lunch or dinner beachfront at River City Cafe where you are encouraged to throw your peanut shells on the floor or have fried pickles at Bubba's Fish Shack. Or, go to Sophia's for ice cream and a fluffer nutter (the kids highly recommend it). Located next door, only minutes away, is the town of Myrtle Beach where you can visit the new boardwalk, play games at the midway, play golf or miniature golf, play/swim at one of several water parks, or go fishing. Broadway at the Beach has many fun attractions such as Ripley's Aquarium, WonderWorks Soar & Explore. There are also several restaurants and shopping. You'll find many additional shopping opportunities in the area such as the Coastal Grand Mall and Tanger Outlets.

We hope you enjoy our home and your visit to Surfside Beach. Please feel free to send us an email or call if you have questions.

About John and Laurie Ellisor

We have three wonderful children. Our oldest and youngest are girls and we have a son in the middle. Our oldest daughter is a junior in college studying communication media and our son is a freshman in college studying engineering. Our youngest is in 8th grade and she is a cheerleader in the fall and a soccer player in the spring. The kids enjoy going to the beach and playing miniature golf.

John and Laurie Ellisor purchased this house in 2010

Why John and Laurie Ellisor chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

We lived in California and have always enjoyed the beaches on the West coast. When we moved to the East coast, we visited the Myrtle Beach area and fell in love. Surfside Beach is close to all the main attractions, but is not as busy as some of the surrounding areas and perfect for families. We love Surfside Beach and hope our guests enjoy it as much as we do.

Great experience, great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for an extended weekend with four other couples. There is a lot more room than the photos give credit for, and was close enough to the beach to easily carry our things. John and Laurie were excellent to deal with and were very quick to reply to questions, and we had no problems with the house while we were there. We are already talking about when we can make it back.

Our first time in Surfside and it won't be our last! Beautiful spacious house, had everything you could ask for. Loved the open layout. Nice big rooms (plenty of space). The kids really enjoyed the pool. Had an amazing time! Best part is everything is close by..plenty of stores. Definitely planning on coming back!

My family enjoyed the week in this beautiful home. We celebrated a birthday and fifty years of friendship for my mother and her best friend. Everyone had a great time. Wonderful pool area and very spacious home. The easy beach access was wonderful. I would recommend this home for rental. Thanks to the owners for allowing us to spend a great week in their home.

We spent our yearly family reunion in this beautiful home It had everything that we needed for our stay. A very nice, clean well maintained home. The pool was so nice and we couldn't keep the kids as well as the adults out of the pool. It was only a short distance to the beach. This home was perfect for our family. I would recommend this home to anyone. Thanks to the owners John & Laurie for letting us enjoy our famiy vacatiion in their beautiful home.
