Why Sue chose Florence

It has always been a dream of mine to have a place at near the ocean.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing and walking on the beach. I love to watch all the different weather patterns change the look and actions of the ocean. One of my favorite things to do is sit on the deck and talk to people as they pass by. Love, love,love to go to Old Town.

Another Outstanding Visit!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row visiting Sue's Dream for our annual golf trip and we had a fantastic time (again). Her beach house is ideally suited for us with 4 separate rooms each with a queen sized bed, and plenty of room to hang out and watch sports on the HDTV. There is also a really fast WiFi connection which all of us appreciated. The kitchen had everything we needed and having a place to get breakfast at the resort across the street is quite handy. The food choices in Florence are outstanding and for the adventurous try the "sand rail tour" at the Sandlands resort about a mile south of the bridge. The property is very clean and well maintained and Sue is very enjoyable to work with. I have no hesitation recommending Sue's Dream and we are all looking forward to when we can return.

Classic 2 story beach house built for families and men who want to play golf at Sandpines.

  • 5 of 5

The house has been well maintained on the interior. All of the furniture in the living spaces (that's right--there are two living rooms--one on each floor) is very comfortable and neat. There are thousands of things for families to do inside, including a foosball table, and some very nice video/audie set-ups, up and down . The reason my friends and I were there, was to play golf at a local golf course. The house has four bedrooms, 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs, each with a queen size bed, closet space, dressers, lamps, and doors that close-- just like home. A bathroom on each floor just a few feet away from the bedrooms, the showers and plumbing worked just fine. This setup was perfect for 4 men who want to play golf. All of us are in our early seventies and are prone to grouse about things more than most--but I didn't hear any complaints about anything. We each got our own room (we all snore) so that was something we didn't have to deal with. The kitchen was well stocked but we used the coffee pot and the cups, a few glasses for cocktails and the refer to keep the beer cold and ice in the freezer. There was a nice restaurant for breakfast (they have a lunch and dinner also) just a short walk out of the house. We ate at several restaurants around Florence--all good and all quaint and diverse. Sue was very accomodating and very pleasant to work with. I think the house is in a great location (especially close to the beach, as the photos indicate), and the interior is just clean enough so you don't feel uncomfortable using it as if it were yours. My friends and I were of a single mind to play as much golf as we could--but I google mapped the Florence area and found a lot of interesting features close to the house. Fate brought us some great weather during mid October--we had a great time and all of us agree that we will think of Sue's Dream house if we get a chance to do this again. Thanks again Sue.

Close to beach

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for two families. Beds need to be replaced, a little squeaky. Foosball table was a hit for the kids. Parking was perfect for quads and trailer. Washing the towels, folding them and putting them away was difficult the day of checkout. Overall, house was clean perfect size and great location!

Great house for a large family and great location

  • 4 of 5

We just loved Sue's Dream-- the location was great and overall size was good. The kitchen was small -- but let's face it-- if your on vacation- you aren't cooking much. Sue was great to deal with and very understanding. The only thing that needs to be improved was the beds. They were extremely uncomfortable and the dishwasher needs to be replaced. I did communicate this with Sue-- so I hope it will be taken care of in the near future. Overall-- it is a nice place with a great view and easy access to the beach.

Owner's Response: This was a last minute accommodation. The folks had their reservation at a riverfront house canceled one day before their date of stay. I am disappointed hat my beds are not to their preference. I have never had a complaint about them before. I did talk personally with these folks and expressed that I appreciated their comments and look into everything that folks tell me about. As to the dishwasher, it is a couple of years old.

Fabulous Golf Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Four bedrooms was perfect for our golf team. The house has a nice view and we had a great time just visiting and playing games around the kitchen table. Thank you! We hope to come back next year.
