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.

Perfect for what we needed

  • 5 of 5

- Clean

- Decent view of the Ocean which is a short walk away

- Convenient walking distance to hotel dining

- Nice beach for kids

- Rooms and space were perfect for our parents and our kids to all stay comfortably. The kid toys were a big hit and we were surprised to find our 2 yr old was pretty decent at the foosball table game too.

nice location; you can walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for us to stay; had 4 bedrooms plus some couches. I don't think anyone had rented it for awhile as it was musty when we first got there. One suggestion -- the dehumidifier makes a loud beeping sound when it is full and therefore should not be situated between the bedrooms; when it goes off it the middle of the night it wakes people up. We took our own towels so as to not have to wash anything when we left; then discovered that we had to wash the bath mats. We loved the location and it was a nice house. The dishwasher is quite hard to close, but the younger hands were able to do it.

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.
