About Connie Kramer

We, like many of you, live the busy modern life and relish the opportunity to kick-back and relax. Even though our primary residence is in central Ohio, we want to help make your vacation experience the very best!

Connie Kramer purchased this house in 2012

Why Connie Kramer chose Melody Gardens

Our family has been making memories at Surfside Beach since our children were small. We became more attached with each returning visit and ultimately decided to call Surfside our second home.

What makes this house unique

Oceanside Village is indeed a small village community. You get to know your neighbors and enjoy the close proximity to the beach and the convenience of all that the Grand Strand has to offer.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here twice now and it's awesome. The house is barely a block from the beach, but is also part of a gated community with pool access, so it's perfect for kids. The beach is pretty much all you need, but the Garden City pier, Myrtle beach boardwalk and Murrels Inlet are also worth checking out. I'm sure we'll be back..

A beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our week here was paradise. The weather was great and the beach was clean and beautiful. Your weekly pace can be as relaxed or busy as you would like it to be. The house was wonderful - clean, neat, well kept, modern and fully outfitted for a relaxing week. There was a golf cart, bicycles, beach items, etc. Everything you need. We plan to return time and again and highly recommend this home and location to anyone.

Wonderful Vacation Rental!! Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this vacation rental. The home is beautiful and immaculate. The kids enjoyed taking rides in the golf cart to the pools and ocean. The bikes and beach toys were a big hit too!

It's such a wonderful area and the neighbors are so nice and helpful.

This is the nicest vacation home rental we have been in and would recommend for a great stay!

We are looking forward to our next vacation and staying here again. We want to thank the Kramer Family for sharing their home and for being so kind!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to vacation! We HIGHLY recommend it! Our family LOVED this home and the area. The home is beautiful, clean and well maintained and has everything necessary and more! The kitchen is well stocked, bedrooms are very cozy, the living room is very comfortable and has a large flat screen television and board games. The bikes, small surfboards, beach toys and outside shower came in handy. It is cheery and spacious, our family nestled in quickly and felt right at home.

It is super close to the beach and the beach is AWESOME! Wonderful sand for playing in, long walks, running and beach combing. The golf cart came in handy since we have 3 small children and all of their stuff, but it is an easy, quick walk to the beach! The pool is clean and fun and the neighborhood is nice.

Anyone of any age would enjoy staying here, there is A LOT to do! Lots of yummy restaurants- I would suggest The Conch, it's right on the beach and was our families favorite! Beautiful view, yummy food, casual dress code, an easy place to take children. There's lots of shopping, a great aquarium, Myrtle Beach, beautiful gardens, just about whatever you might want to do, you can find here! The beach and surrounding areas have a lot to offer at night as well! One can also just come for a peaceful, relaxing, and quiet rest!

The owners are great people to work with, very helpful and accommodating! Connie is friendly and very prompt in her reply's. Their neighbor Bill is also very friendly and can help with just about any questions you might have.

We are most definitely planning on making this home a family vacation tradition!

Home Away from Hone

  • 5 of 5

our stay was wonderful!! The house was beautiful. All of my family members enjoyed their stay. It was perfect and met the sleeping accommodations. The beds were very very comfortable!! It was helpful that the house was equipped with all of the needs (blankets, kitchen supplies, toiletries and more). We arrived at 2:30am and realized we didn't purchase soap. Luckily the bath wash was there. This was a great getaway and if you are looking for a clean, safe, modern home environment this is it!!!

Surfside Beach (3rd house from beach)
Car: recommended

Surfside Beach is nestled between the Grand Strand & Murrell's Inlet. Be sure to see Brookgreen Gardens, the largest outdoor sculpture garden in the world where you can also visit animals in the Low Country Zoo, take a Creek Cruise, take a Trekker Ride, or stroll through the Butterfly House. Also close by is Huntington Beach State Park with nature center and hiking trails. South of Murrell's Inlet are Pawley's Island & Georgetown for day trips.
