About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2

This is the finest 1 bedroom unit in Water's Edge Resort! Nothing else in Water's Edge or the South Strand can compare. An extreme makeover, with a Tuscan Villa Decor in mind, a few short years ago converted this into our escape away private retreat with every conceivable luxury and amenity you could imagine.

From the minute you walk in to our Villa you will see a spectacular panoramic view of the blue Atlantic Ocean. A 14 foot arch, supported by white Doric columns, frame the spectacular view through the living room. Designer Cindy Crawford queen size sofa and marble top end tables, coffee table and TV table accent the side-by-side power leather reclining entertainment theater seats and the 40 inch Sony flat screen TV with DVD and 5.1 surround sound built into the trey ceiling.

Relax to the cool breeze of the tropical overhead fan while you look out over the blue Atlantic Ocean. An oversize 14 foot by 8 foot balcony with privacy walls gives you a front row seat to watch the dolphins, boats, surfers, para-sails and you will even see horses in the off-season.

Dine in elegance at the tropical style dining table and chairs, framed by the custom designed tiled tropical planter on one end and a built-in china cabinet and office area on the other. The Custom designed Cherry cabinet kitchen with Canyon Sunset Granite is fully stocked with all your culinary needs, high-end stainless steel appliances, built-in wine cooler, compactor, dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, convection oven, microwave and glass top range.

The beautifully furnished Master Bedroom has custom built-in Cherry cabinets including a well stocked library for your enjoyment in the lighted glass front bookcase. Mirrored closet doors, and luxurious cashmere sculptured carpet, adjoins a super-luxury bath with Jacuzzi tub, Rain Forest Shower head and built-in body jets in the wall. Floor to ceiling Italian marble and ceramic tile are accented by a granite topped Bombay chest vanity. Full second bath with Rain Forest Shower Head and floor to ceiling Italian marble and ceramic tile and granite topped vanity.

The beach is a short elevator ride down and 100 feet to the sand. It is a beach lovers dream. A little quieter and less crowded than Myrtle Beach, you will fall in love with Garden City Beach. This unit was remodeled as our private second home. Our escape away. We just began renting it in 2013 to people looking for something really special. Be among the first to brag about staying at Villa 305 Waters Edge Resort. If you stay here once, you will be spoiled for life, and will want to come back again and again. Welcome to our Home Away from Home! We look forward to hearing about your visit with us.

About Janet

Welcome, we are Janet and Parker, homeowners of Villa 305 Water's Edge Resort. We bought this in 2006 as a private second home. We did an extreme makeover that same year, to make this home a show place. Family and business obligations prevent us from using it as much as we would like, so we have decided to share our home with those who are seeking something special in a vacation resort. We know you will enjoy it and we also know that you will want to return often.

Janet purchased this condo in 2006

Why Janet chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

Garden City Beach is just south of Myrtle Beach, but a little quieter, less crowded and more relaxing than Myrtle Beach. Water's Edge Resort is a concrete and steel high rise that withstood hurricane Hugo, when many of its neighbors did not. The third floor and unit 305 are just above the tops of the Palmetto trees to create a tropical feeling without distractions. The view from the living room and the deck are simply the best on the East Coast. We think you will agree.

What makes this condo unique

Super-luxury unit at a very competitive price. Why stay somewhere else when you can have the best unit in the building and the best on the South Strand?

Fantastic Vaction

  • 5 of 5

I cant even begin to tell you how happy we were with our condo. Janet was such a delight to work with and the pictures she has posted are very accurate of the appearance of the inside of the condo....the view from the balcony is breathtaking. As soon as we walked through the front door, the stunning view caught our eyes. The condo is very clean and smelled very fresh when we opened the door. The full size luxury washer and dryer was an added bonus as I didn't have bring home any dirty laundry. The kitchen is so beautifully done that I now want to redo mine at home. Janet sent a list of recommended restaurants and we were delighted with the ones we tried, the Gulfstream Café was our favorite. We had never stayed in the Garden City Beach area but we enjoyed being on a less crowded part of the beach but still within reasonable driving distance to any activity or restaurant you could ever want to visit. We are already talking about returning next year and we rarely want to return to the same place twice but Janet and Parker's villa spoiled us and the people on staff at the resort were so friendly that we don't feel we need to ever go anywhere else. Janet, thank you so much for sharing your home away from home with us. We had one of the best vacations every.

What you see and were told is what you get. Condo is very nice, resort is OK.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was as described. Owners are very detail oriented and helpful. Resort was still preparing for the busy season so I would not rate them as high as the owners.

Perfection at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently returned from a wonderful week staying in this beautiful condo. The decor and amenities were top notch and included everything we needed and more for a memorable vacation stay! We lucked out as the weather was perfect every day, which of course added to the ambiance of the area. The oceanfront view from the balcony was breathtaking and we really appreciated the comfy cushions and upgraded patio furniture to enjoy the scenery. We had never stayed in the Garden City area before, so we really enjoyed investigating new restaurants and discovering all that Murrells Inlet had to offer. We would highly recommend this particular unit to anyone looking to be pampered with a beautiful place to call home for a week. With the beach steps away and a pool, bar and diner onsite, we give this place a 10! Thanks Janet and Parker for sharing your lovely home - we made wonderful memories!

Car: recommended

Garden City Beach and Water's Edge Resort are located about 20 minutes south of Myrtle Beach in an area that is a little quieter, more family oriented and less crowded. But, the best shopping, dining and attractions have moved toward this end of the beach, so you are never very far from what you want to see and do. Detailed driving directions provided the week before you check in.
