Siesta Sands is a recently constructed multi-level raised beach house decorated in a Southern beach style to appeal to the modern family or multiple family groups. With 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, including 2 true king-bed master suites each with oversized jacuzzi tubs, large walk-in closets and private decks, this home is ideal for the large family or multi-family vacations. Upstairs, bedrooms 3 and 4 each have queen beds and bedroom 5 offers two double beds. Each bedroom has large closets, dressers and nightstands to keep you from having to live out of your suitcases. Each bedroom features a 32-inch flat screen television with cable and remote. The six large flat screen televisions offer multiple entertainment options throughout the house including cable with ESPN. DVD or blue ray players are available for use along with a library of popular movies. The Main level boasts wide open, light, airy spaces including a large, open-concept family room, dining area, kitchen and one of the master suites with its own private screened-in deck. This open and spacious floor plan easily accommodates up to 14 guests comfortably and the extra large carpeted family room is perfect for evening conversations and board or card games with the whole group. A private deck off the family room offers the opportunity to share a morning coffee or to relax while sipping on an after-dinner drink. The upstairs level, houses the second true master suite with a private deck, plus the other three bedrooms and a large laundry area. It is the perfect combination of modern convenience and restful vacation paradise, and of course your small furry pet family members are welcome as well.

*To accommodate even larger groups, Siesta Sands may be rented in conjunction with its mirror image beach-themed twin unit Fiesta Sands (see VRBO 445861) to sleep up to 28 total adults. Each side has its own private fenced back yard with a lighted private pool and both charcoal and gas grilling options available in conjunction with the beautiful luxury outdoor kitchen and bar area. Rental of both sides would be perfect for a destination wedding or for large family or class reunions.

Siesta Sands is located a scant one block from the majestic Atlantic Ocean on a quaint, quiet street with easy access to the gorgeous, wide Garden City Beach sands. You are an easy and comfortable, level, 3-minute walk from the carport to the beach; close enough for convenience, but removed from the constant traffic and noise of Ocean Boulevard.

Spend your days lounging on the beach soaking up the sun, and remembering how good a relaxing vacation can be. Take a short walk to the classic Garden City Pier and spend some time in the nostalgic cafes, shops, arcade and watering holes that have been enjoyed for generations by Grand Strand vacationers. Return to your vacation paradise and have a nap by your private pool with areas perfect for either afternoon sun or relaxation in the shade. Have a picnic while the kids cool off in the pool. You may want to engage in one of our favorite evening activities of taking the whole family on a leisurely stroll to the Garden City Pier at dusk to enjoy the two live bands which play nightly during the summer, watching people fish off the pier and reveling in the joy of people of all ages dancing the night away. Otherwise, evenings offer virtually unlimited dining, entertainment and shopping options within minutes of home. Located only 8 miles from downtown Myrtle Beach, the entire Grand Strand is available to you.

For the Golfers, Siesta Sands provides the perfect environment for recharging your spirit before your next round on one of many of the world's most famous championship courses. Keep up with the world via free wireless internet or one of the six televisions to always make you feel at home as you relax at Siesta Sands!

**All weekly rentals include exit cleaning service, and all stays include FREE bed linens.** This unit also has a optional golf cart available which can make the beach even more quickly accessible for children and seniors as a component of the beach house rental package.

*Pet(s) require an additional $200 non-refundable fee.

Keywords: Raised beach house 1 block from the beach. 5 bedrooms, Family and Pet friendly, Private pool. Custom Outdoor Kitchen/Bar.

About Tammy Sanderfer

Hi. We're the Sanderfer family. Having grown up in South Carolina, we have always dreamed of having a vacation home at the beach where we could relive our best childhood memories. We want you to be comfortable and feel at home at Siesta Sands, and create many lasting memories of your own in our vacation paradise!

Tammy Sanderfer purchased this house in 2011

Why Tammy Sanderfer chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

Garden City is widely known as a family beach, and family vacations are important to us. We love the chance for a safe and peaceful opportunity to relax as we vacation.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the family night life at the end of Garden City Pier and strolling down the beach early in the morning to have breakfast at Sam's Corner. There is something for every taste. World Class dining, shopping, golf, adventure and nightlife are all just minutes away, but the chance to stroll a block to the beach to enjoy the soothing rhythms of the tides keeps us coming back!

Perfect House!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful house. The week flew by way to fast but the house was perfect. The main living area is very large and had enough room for us to set up three blow up beds along with the pull out couch with room to spare. We found everything we needed in the kitchen, they even had two crock pots. I would recommend getting the golf cart because you can drive it all over the cute little town and explore everything. The kids had a great time taking the golf cart to the corner Ice cream store every night and that gave the adults some quiet time. I can go on and on so I will finish up with if you want a nice house very close to the beach with more then enough space and an owner that is extremely nice and very helpful then this is the house for you.

Where do you live?


  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great vacation at Siesta Sands. The house was clean and well equipped. With 10 people, I especially liked the open floor plan. Tammy was very easy to work with. She made sure all the bases were covered. I appreciate the fact that we were able to bring our 2 small dogs. The fenced yard gave them a space to "be free". We rented the golf cart and the grandchildren thought it was so much fun. I almost got the idea that the golf cart was just as important as the beach. It was nice to have the private pool. My youngest granddaughter tried to wake her grandfather up at 11:20pm to "go take a dip". Thanks Tammy for everything!

Wonderful Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I even begin? From my very first email to Tammy she was wonderful! She not only answered my emails (and my thousands of never-ending questions) very promptly, but she also made it extremely easy for us when we wanted to add an extra day when we were actually getting ready to leave. Her food recommendations were excellent as well and that Tomato Pie was to die for! After speaking with Tammy, you truly get the sense that she is genuine and really wants her guests to have the best vacation possible; she goes above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome.

The beach house is amazing! It is not only beautifully decorated, clean, and completely stocked with linens and towels, but it is also a very warm and welcoming rental. It really is your home away from home and this is a nice feeling because some rentals do not have that relaxing feel to them. Another great thing about the beach house is the fully stocked kitchen! We really enjoyed using the kitchen and not having to worry about forgetting something from home. We also loved the screened-in porch off of the Master bedroom and we enjoyed our coffees from there every single morning.

Another thing we loved is the fact that the house is pet friendly; our two rather large dogs were allowed to stay and it was great having them there with us. Tammy really understands that dogs are family members too and she was very accepting of them as well. With that being said, I would also like to point out to anyone thinking about staying here that doesn't have dogs; the house is extremely clean. In fact, a family member who is not a pet person at all couldn't believe how clean it was and commented that you wouldn't even know that it was pet friendly.

The pool area was great as well! We loved spending a few days poolside and there are plenty of lounge chairs available too! We enjoyed the grill as well. Tammy has two grills set up which is great for family gatherings. We had our family over for dinner (we were there for a wedding) one night and there was enough room for everyone to sit together and eat which was really nice.

Overall, I cannot say enough about Tammy and Siesta Sands. We enjoyed ourselves far more than we expected too. Anyone who is considering Siesta Sands, I would definitely say go for it as you will not be disappointed. The entire experience was great and I highly recommend renting from Tammy if you are looking for a great vacation house at the beach! We cannot wait until next year!
