About Sam Kendrick

We are both retired and enjoy our opportunities to spend time at the condo. We try to make them comfortable and cheerful. Many of our guests have become very good friends as we share our experiences.

Sam Kendrick purchased this condo in 1994

Why Sam Kendrick chose Garden City

We vacationed at this resort for six or seven years before buying our condo. After looking at various condos up and down the beach, we settled on this resort because it has the amenities and location that suited us best. When we were in the market for 2 and 3 bedroom condos we determined that this was still the best location for our needs. See VRBO ID Nos. 403793 and 191216.

What makes this condo unique

The name of our resort is Water's Edge and the name is very accurate. It is hard to find a resort that gives you easier access to the beach and ocean. We also have a new property management company and our resort has not looked this good since it was first built.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Welcome to our home away from home. We hope that you have a very enjoyable stay in our condo. If you have any comments please feel free to share them with us whether they are positive or negative. There is a guest book in the condo or you may use this guestbook to inform us of any suggestions for improvement or just share your experience while vacationing here. Have a safe trip and look forward to meeting with you in the future.

Great gulf front views

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the few places to stay with direct gulf front views with an actual bedroom (or two or three if you need) and two bathrooms. We stayed in unit 506 and it had everything we needed to call it home. The photos of the condo are accurate. We chose this unit because of the view and comfort. My wife and I do not have the same sleeping patterns so we needed an actual bedroom condo and not an efficiency style condo. Also, trying to relax and watch T.V. or working on a computer while setting on a bed doesn't work for us. I would also like to point out that this unit has central air and not one of those A/C units that looks bad, is loud, and doesn't cool the condo evenly. We chose the 5th floor because we wanted to be up above the trees that could block the view, but we didn't want to see people looking like ants below. Sam was helpful with any of our questions. This condo at the Waters Edge is about a 10-15 minute drive to the Myrtle beach area. We actually like this area more because it is more quiet and it seems to us like they have taken better care of this area. The building itself , for the most part, also seems to be taken care of. It sets directly on the Gulf. The high tide actually touched the stairs going to the beach a few times we were there. It is my understanding that the county (or State) is in process of bringing sand that has washed out away from the beach back into the beach. We saw a lot of activity that would confirm this. The swimming pool goes from indoors to outside as well as the hot tubs. We also walked to the pier in about 20 minutes. This pier does not charge you to walk out on it like the one we went to at Gulf Shores Alabama. We would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your vacation experience. Our main goal is for each of our guests to have a relaxing and enjoyable vacation while at the beach. Our condo is located at Garden City Beach which is south of Myrtle Beach, SC. The beach is being renourished during the months of September and October, 2017. Hurricane Irma delayed the operation but they are back at work now. Thanks again for your review and hope you will vacation with us in the future. Sam Kendrick

Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo for the month of March and enjoyed every minute. It was so nice to be right on the beach, to enjoy the sunrises and sunsets. The condo was clean and well maintained, as well as spacious. It is centrally located to shopping, restaurants and attractions, close enough to visit but away from the congestion of Mrtyle Beach. We have already recommended this condo to friends. Sam was a pleasure to deal with.

A Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to rent this beautiful condo from this very attentive owner. We could not have asked for a better experience. Everything was as it was advertised (maybe even better). We certainly will be back - maybe with extended family - and would not hesitate to rent from this owner again. Thank you for a wonderful week.

My family and I have stayed at waters edge resort for over 20+years, we used to rent directly thru the resort, however we have rented from Sam for the past 3 years. We have rented all three of your condos the 1, 2, and 3 bedroom. I highly recommend them all!!! All three condos are all nicely updated, very clean, and spacious. We always feel at home. I want to thank Sam and his family for sharing your home away from home with my family again this summer which blessed us with another fantastic family vacation and a lifetime of memories...
