NEW:HEATED POOL. Extended Families or Group of Friends...Steps from the Beach

Bedrooms 6
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

This house offers comfort and elegance at an affordable price. Located just 40 yards from beach access, our guests find it easy to “run home” for lunch or to grab another towel. Beautifully decorated and cleaned weekly, we visit often to do maintenance and upgrades. Bill is the ultimate “project guy.”

The open floor plan allows group activities; the bedrooms provide quiet space, and the wrap-around balcony invites “doing nothing.” The upper balcony on a warm summer evening is the perfect place to count stars. Total space = 2776 square feet.

The kitchen has modern appliances, ample cutlery and dishes, large serving platters, and pots and pans for a crowd. Everyone can eat at the same time; no need for “shifts.”

Busy Myrtle Beach is a few miles to the north, offering night clubs, live entertainment and discount mall shopping. Murrell’s Inlet, a seafood lover’s paradise and home to the

“Marsh Walk ,” is a few miles to the south. Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington State Park are 15 minutes south. Pawley's Island, famous for its hammocks, is nearby and historic Charleston is 2 hrs south.

As of May 7, 2014, guests have the option to have the pool heated! A $100.00 fee applies, whether a week or weekend. At least two days notice is required.


Memorial Day weekend requires a 4-night minimum stay, everyone must be 25 years or older (other than children whose parents are present), and no motorcycles.

About Lynn Kirk Hunter and Bill Hunter

Bill and I purchased this house January, 2012. We own and rent an identical house just two doors away. Our experience renting has been a joy, so we decided to do more of it!

We love Surfside Beach; it's safe, quiet, beautiful and family oriented.

Bill is retired from the textile industry and I just retired from college teaching after a 45 year career.

We are both fix-it people and both of our SB houses have become pet projects.

Why Lynn Kirk Hunter and Bill Hunter chose Surfside Beach

We loved the idea of a house large enough for extended families and groups of friends. We envisioned on-going jigsaw puzzles, family chit-chats, and good times all around. After dark, the pool lights invite quiet reflection. When I was young, my family vacationed on the Jersey shore with aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. I wanted to make that possible for other families and friends.

Spacious Home and Good location

  • 3 of 5

The property was very spacious and accommodating. However, we encountered a couple of issues:

1) There was a distinct offensive smell from the disposer/dishwasher.

2) The pool and hot tub had some maintenance issues that needed to be addressed. Sand in both which were eventually addressed but not completely resolved. Skimmers were off in the pool which resulted in floating debris. However, it was tolerable.

3) Window valance In Livingroom was broken

Despite the issues, we still enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the points that have been noted by our guest and regret that there was any inconvenience. We learned about the valance in the living room only days prior to this guest’s arrival and could not get into the house prior to their departure. We called our pool and hot tub maintenance crew as soon as we learned of the sand and they took corrective, though inadequate, action. (We later learned that neighborhood teens had been using the hot tube after leaving the beach and we have subsequently contracted with a better pool/spa maintenance service.) But everything should have been perfect when the guests arrived and we offer no excuses. Our standard is “problem free” and we regret that we fell short. We ask that our guest not be discouraged from a future visit and guaranteed a better experience.

perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd try at renting this house as the past 2 years were interrupted by bad weather and the reason I'm mentioning this is because Lynn and Bill could not have been more cooperative and understanding and are great to work with. As far the house is concerned, there is not much that you can say. How can you argue with a 6 bedroom, 4 bath house at the beach with a pool and hot tub. The place is clean, the kitchen is well equipped, and everything works as it should. You can even record shows on the tv for future viewing. Can't go wrong with this house as it is close to everything.

Wonderful vacation rental!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the layout of the house. Having our own pool and hot tub and the spacious porches were a plus. Everyone made comment that the beds were great. Only a couple minutes walk to the beach!! We also rented a golf cart nearby that made it so easy to visit other attractions without getting in the car. The owners were great to work with also! We would definately rent this home again!

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was wonderful. The house is beautiful and well maintained. The customer service by the owners was second to none throughout the process. Only issue was hot tub was not heating so I sent email to the owners and within 30 minutes someone came and fixed it. Turns out we may have turned it off. Short walk (2 houses and cross the street) to a beautiful beach. Surfside beach is very family oriented and nothing like the madness of Myrtle Beach. However we did visit Barefoot Landing for a great dinner and shopping.

very nice, clean home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Wow, we had a great week staying here! We had 4 families and we all had plenty of space. The layout of this home fit us perfectly. The home was clean and fresh. The location was perfect, street wasn't busy and just a small walk to the beach. Everyone enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We can't wait to return and I would recommend this home to anyone who is looking to relax and enjoy a wonderful vacation spot.

The owners of this home were also very nice and easy to contact. They answered all of our questions and did what they could to help make our stay as nice as it was.

Thank You, Bill and Lynn, you have a beautiful beach home and we are so happy you shared it with us.
