Car: Not Necessary

Library and playground a football field distance away. Great flea market 5 minutes away. Golf courses, water slides, bowling, Marsh walk for wildlife viewing in nearby Murriels Inlet. Endless shopping and restaurants!

My home has a front porch, and a screened in side porch. An ample driveway for mulitple car parking. Smart TV's are 4 out of the 5 tvs. The one non smart tv, has a dvd player. Cable, wifi, with flat screen TV's , are included at no cost. All sheets, bath towels, and cleaning fees are included in rent. I only rent on a weekly from Saturday to Saturday. NO pets or smoking. No long term rentals, I do rent monthly in the off season.

Taxes and insurance policy are additional fees. No refunds on rental after securing property, unless you are evacuated due to a hurricane.

Quiet streets that are super for biking, walking, and running. In season, the farmers market is available a "football field away". Several wonderful parks close by for the children to enjoy and an almost new library with 36 computers for your use in walking distance.

The beach in Surfside is cleaned every day! This is what sold me on this community. Cleanliness thru out Surfside, wonderfully maintained by the city. No 'don's johns' at the beach, you have real restrooms for your use.

You can walk to the beach, library, local bars and eateries. Don't miss the Conch and Valentino's! I love thrift shops, and the best are along 17S towards Pawley's Island. Golf, minature golf, water parks, fishing pier, there is so much to see! Village Furniture store is my latest find....bring a truck, prices are fantastic and prices are amazing!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a Grandma that loves the beach and my farm in Virginia! Born and raised in Ohio, moved to Virginia in 1967, and never left! Amazing place to live, but very fast paced and congested. I bought this home for myself, and my grandchildren to build sandcastles, ride bikes, and to have a good time together. I hope that you and your family love my home as much as we do! I will have updated pictures coming in May, lots of updates!

Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach, SC, USA:
Surfside is quiet, family orientated, safe, clean, manicured, the water is warm and clear here, I wanted parking for family and this holds 4 cars. I told my Realtor, only Surfside, ceramic floors in great room, single family home, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, walking distance to the beach! I love it, bought it without ever seeing it (except for pictures) and it ended up being better than I expected! My grandchildren have several parks to walk to, a public library walking distance with 25 computers for public use, tennis a block away, and lots of bars and eateries walking distance (no designated driver needed). I am particular about manicured lawns, safe streets for walking at night, safe neighborhoods, pristine beaches, and this town has all of that to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walk to beach, library, playgrounds, happy hour, food places.....everything is so close. The grand kids love the water parks and minature golf courses. Discount malls, flea markets, thrift stores, 3 D movie theaters, Myrtle Beach has it all! Surfside has a pristine beach, that is cleaned everyday.
