About Carl B. Watkins

My wife (Susan) and I (Carl) are both from Hartsville SC. I am a retired engineer from Sonoco Products Co., and Susan owns/runs a daycare (35 yrs.+). While working at Sonoco, we had the privilege of traveling to many different countries.My family and I have always been very fond of Surfside/Garden City area while growing up and truly love the family, hassle free environment it has to offer. Our aim is to totally please our guest with good old southern hospitality and beautiful accomodations. Our goal is to attain that 'wow' factor and strive for repeat vacationers.

Carl B. Watkins purchased this villa in 2012

Why Carl B. Watkins chose Murrells Inlet

Back in 2006, we decided to purchase our 2nd home prior to construction. We fell in love with the property. Also, the developer was a major reason we decided to purchase the 2nd unit as an investment, on-site ammenities and personel are so accommodating and the HOA &CSA's are very well run organizations in this complex. I promise you'll love your stay here and hopefully will return for future vacations.

What makes this villa unique

Very close to the beach and have on-site golf with both and 18 hole executive course as well as a lighted par-3 . The lighted driving range is 2nd to none and of course we have miniature golf on-site for the kids. This location is close to everything!!!!!

Best Stay Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home! I have been coming to the Myrtle Beach area for over 15 years and this is the best condo ever. The condo was very clean and decorated beautifully! We also met some very nice people at the pool :-) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to making this our home away from home!

Ultimate Relaxation in SC

  • 5 of 5

Carl and Susan were fantastic hosts. The property had everything we could have hoped for as we were looking for a relaxing getaway from NYC with our family and 2 dogs (a pom and frenchie). The home was nicely furnished with the master having a tempurpedic type mattress. The kitchen had everything we needed as we had many a family meal at their dining table. The dogs enjoyed running around the backyard, meeting neighbors, and quickly scampering inside to escape the heat.

The staff was friendly and the facilities were great. The gym surpassed our expectations (shoulder and chest press, cable crossover machine, leg press, leg extension, hammie curl, dumbbells up to 50lbs, a couple benches) and was one of the better ones we've encountered on a rental property. The pools were nice with the indoor pool being much colder than the outdoor one (thankfully!). There was a shuttle service to the beach as well.

Just wanted to say thank you to Carl and Susan for inviting us into their home and we could definitely see they put some love into it. It was the perfect place for us and we couldn't have enjoyed it more.

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is extremely roomy and comfortable. Being an end unit on the ground floor made it a breeze getting in and out of. The spacious and open floor plan is fantastic for adults traveling together (like us) or families. We ate most our meals in so having a large dining room table and fully stocked kitchen made it very easy. In fact, the entire condo was fully stocked with all the necessities, which was a plus. On top of that, Carl is an exceptional host! He's responsive, friendly and very accommodating. When I asked for extra golf passes, he supplied them quickly and even called later in the week to ask if we needed more. The golfers traveling with me enjoyed the golf course and driving range. I used the fitness center and was amazed by the cleanliness, selection and quality of the equipment. The entire clubhouse and pool facility appeared new and well maintained. I noticed they have scheduled activities like resorts do, such as Zumba in the pool M/W mornings for adults and tie-dying t-shirts for kids, etc.

All in all, this is a well-equipped and well maintained condo in a lovely golfing community only a short distance (across Hwy. 17 by car, golf cart, or shuttle) from the beach!

Thanks for your generosity, Carl!!

This was the first time we stayed at this Tupelo Bay Villa but it did not disappoint! Great villa, extremely clean, excellent furnishings, spacious and very well maintain. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. I usually do not sleep well away from home, but loved the master bed...SO very comfortable. Pool area was great too! Loved staying back off the beach where it was quiet & more private...yet only a few minutes to beach on the golf cart we rented. Many thanks to owners, Carl & Susan for being so kind and fantastic to deal with. I am referring my family and friends! Hope we will can return again soon!!!
