Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Garden City Beach is a unique family vacation area. Situated between the marsh and the Atlantic Ocean, it offers the best of both worlds, low key lazing on the beach or the on site pool, or the more energetic attractions of Myrtle Beach just a short drive away.

Within walking distance, you can visit a huge arcade where the kids or the kids at heart can challenge their skills, sample one of the famous foot long hot dogs at Sam's Corner, visit the ice cream shop for an after dinner treat or just stroll along Atlantic Ave and check out the shops. If dinner out is in your plans, there are restaurants to choose from and breakfast on Garden City Pier is also an option for those early risers.

More dining, shopping and sightseeing within a short distance. Murrell's Inlet Seafood Capital is only 2 miles away !

About The Owner

Being in high stress occupations, we wanted a place where we could really relax when our children were young.

My sisters and their families started renting condos in Garden Sands because it is so convenient to everything. We have had some great times throughout the years.

Now my children have children of their own and come to the beach each summer. We are not quite ready to retire and spending time at Garden City Beach is still the high light of our summer.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1986

Why The Owner chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

My husband purchased the property new as a surprise. Living in Central New York, he knew I missed having the ocean nearby. I grew up in the warmer climes of the South Pacific, He wanted a place that offered things for the children to do and yet not be exhausting for us. Garden City Beach just seemed to fit that profile. The condo is located just across the road from the ocean and also has the on site pool that we can relax at. The location is just perfect.

What makes this condo unique

My favorite time at the beach is in the early morning, when I can sit on the balcony, enjoy the ocean air, read my book or look across at the ocean and watch the sun rise.

I loved taking my children to the marsh and teaching them about the ecosystem and the inhabitants of the marsh. Now, I take the grandchildren to the marsh, where we can catch crabs or shrimp and watch the egrets as they scamper for the shrimp we missed.

Garden City fun

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place just across the street from the beach. Was perfect for our small family of 3 and the location was great. The owner was great to work with and always answered our emails and questions timely and was a very big help. Would definitely love to stay here again.

We had a great week in Garden City. The condo was just what we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. The condo was nice and clean and set up and ready for our visit. The owners were great to work with and communicated back quickly with us. We loved that we could walk right out the door to the beach and it had plenty of room for us. The patio was great to sit on in the morning before we headed out to the beach. We rested comfortably at night in the living room and bedrooms. It's a great place to go and stay for a get away. I highly recommend renting it to anyone else. Thank you for a great stay!

We had a great week and we plan on a return trip!

  • 4 of 5

Property was clean when we arrived, we were just a few short steps from the beach. Area and neighbors were nice. Just a short one block walk and there was a beach shop, a couples small neighborhood restaurants and a cute little activity center for families and the best ice cream ever!! If you like to run, plenty of back roads to get in a solid run, sidewalks along the main road were covered in sand in spots and people like to park on them. Beware Horry County does not allow tents or shades on the beach, for that drive south a few blocks to the next county over. Horry will allow umbrellas or they would be happy to rent one to you. I would like a return trip in 2018!!

Garden City Condo

  • 4 of 5

While visiting Murrells Inlet for bike week 2017, I stayed at this Garden Sands condo. The location was fabulous, with a very friendly and safe atmosphere. The beach was beautiful and just steps away. The condo, a two bedroom, one bathroom had a fully equipped kitchen. It was reasonably priced and had a washer/dryer located in a downstairs laundry room. Overall I would recommend this place and would stay there again. If I did though I would probably rent the condo alone or with my husband next time. I shared this unit with one of my girlfriends that I travel with every year. We used Uber to out to the bars on Rt. 17 which only cost about $6 to take you to The Beaver Bar, SBB, Big Beaver and Spokes & Bones, but partied some nights in town and were able to walk to a few of the neighborhood bars Causeway, The Bar, and Garden City Bar. These bars were regular "biker type" joints with music and dancing. That is the whole reason I go to bike week in SC. The beach, the bikes, the music and the dancing. The only pitfalls of the place had more to do with the design of the condos and my own personal preferences, rather than anything else. The "shared" bathroom had a door to the master as well as hallway, which at times was inconvenient. The second bedroom was small and jam packed and did not have a TV in it. This year she had the master, so getting ready to go out at night was very crowded. The balcony located on the side street would have been more enjoyable if it were facing the main road, to view the bikes as they went by. We went shopping and prepared most of our own meals in the condo but went out for seafood twice. I'd recommend both places Sara J's and the Wicked Tuna. Both are not in walking distance but that was just fine. The surf and turf was great. The owner Marianne was pleasant to deal with and returned my security deposit promptly.

Map

Walk along the Marsh foot bridge, down the steps to the Marsh and explore at low tide. Watch fiddler crabs scammper back to their holes, Try your hand with a shrimp net. Throw out a chicken neck on a string and wait for a blue crab latch on. Fishing from the beach, Garden City Pier or off the Marsh foot bridge at high tide might net you dinner. Garden City Pier has live bands at the end of the pier in the evening. What a way to end a day!
