About Dean Rende

My wife and I enjoying the beach life we love

Dean Rende purchased this condo in 2007

Why Dean Rende chose Garden City

We chose to buy this condo because of its location. My entire family has always loved the beach. After a long search around all of Myrtle Beach, this area really stuck. Perfect for beach lovers, golf nuts ( that's me ) and kids. Just Perfect... Condo sits on 4th floor. Directly above pool. That makes it easy to look down and communicate with kids on the beach or in the pool. .

What makes this condo unique

The perfect view, the quietness, the proximity to everything Myrtle Beach has to offer, and the safe feel for my children to be able to walk alone down to the pier at night made this the PERFECT location for us.

Great location and beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Royal Garden Resort from Saturday August 18 to 24th 2018. Upon arrival the unit was a little smaller than expected and could use some updating but overall a great place to stay! Loved the view from balcony! We had 4 adults and the 2nd bedroom was a little tight along with the shower in 2nd bath. We liked having a full kitchen to prepare meals and loved the location! Quieter than Myrtle Beach and not as crowded. Had all we needed for pots and pans, plates and glasses. Liked that it was on the 4th floor. Would stay there again and recommend to friends.

Thank you Dean for letting us stay at your condo!

Owner's Response: Sandra. Thanks for your review. We have unit blocked for the next couple months to be completely updated with new wall textures, paint, doors, ect.. It’s going to look really great for next season. We’re happy you liked the location and hope to hear from you and your friends next year. All our best. Dean

Owner's Response: Vincent and Christine. Thanks for your very nice review. We’ve been working hard to try and make our home as comfortable as possible. It’s not as easy as we thought since so many people have so many different opinions. But hearing about your experience makes it all worth while. Thanks again Dean

Cute beach condo with an amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was very clean and well equipped. When it was high tide the water looked like it was right under your balcony! Such a Mom thing but I liked the long hallway when you come in. That way we could leave wet and sandy stuff and shoes there without tracking into the unit. Walls are concrete so I couldn’t hear any neighbors. It was very close to Murrell’s Inlet and a short drive to all the shows, shopping and restaurants. The resort itself was a bit dated but the pools and deck areas were clean and well kept. Parking was easy and connected to the building not across the street. Elevators were pretty fast (I’ve stayed at other resorts/condos where you wait forever!). Garden City Pier is within walking distance with fishing, shops, restaurants, an arcade and mini-amusement Park. Quaint little area and lots of fireworks on the beach you can enjoy on your balcony. Just remember this is someone’s home and not a 5-star resort! Keep that in mind when reading other nit-picking reviews. Yes there are some things that could be updated and some things are mismatched but it is a wonderful condo for such a great price. How often are you even in your room? All the savings enabled us to do (and eat!) so much more during our stay.

Owner's Response: Kelly. Thank you so much for your great review. I should use it as my new property description. We have just signed contracts for a total renovation walls and ceilings in October 2018. Our greatest joy is knowing that a family enjoyed themselves at the condo. Thanks again for being a model client. Dean

Needs updated & painted

4th floor was nice - couch needs replaced - whole place needs painted

Owner's Response: Wow. Thanks Andy.?? After Your departure I emailed you to Inquire about your stay. Your response was that you liked the location, enjoyed the balcony and view, liked that the unit was on the fourth floor and gave me an “overall, We enjoyed Our stay”. Yes You did mention that you felt the place needed updating and paint.. And hearing that, We have already scheduled for extensive renovations to begin in late September.. My only question is why leave out all the positives you relayed to me and go ahead and only list negativity when others can see it?!. For the life of me I can’t figure certain things out. I have no problem with people expressing their thoughts, as long as they include the positive along with the negative. Thanks again for your second (PUBLIC) opinion. The first was much more positive.. Please enjoy the rest of your summer.. Dean

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This Condo is perfect! Had a wonderful week, the view from the balcony is spectacular! The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. The washer and dryer was great to have in the room. The only thing I would change would be the mattress in master bedroom it was a little to hard for me but that’s personal preference of course. The hotel was very nice with indoor and outdoor pools and the beach is very close to the pool. That was what I liked most I could sit on the beach and watch my son in the pool all day without worrying I could see him clearly. Overall fantastic vacation and I will definitely stay again!!! Highly recommend this condo!!! Thank you Dean for answering any questions and concerns I had you were very helpful.

Summer vacation

  • 3 of 5

Place was a little outdated. When we walked it smelled musky and could have been freshly painted to spruce it up. Master bedroom have mold in the two corners of the room, I reported it to the owner and he acted on it right away. The cleaning management came over right away and sprayed it but never followed up on it and the spray did not help. Was still concerned to what I was breathing in...Kitchen was decent and did the job, some of the furniture could use an update, overall it was okay. The view was perfect, the downfall was the having neighbors close by, was not real private. Loved the location of beachfront and oceanfront.

Thru our management company..( Southern Coast Vacations) ➡️➡️➡️➡️➡️➡️ROYAL GARDEN 410 HOUSE RULES AND REMINDERS
1) Welcome to Our home. What we want is for you to enjoy your vacation here at Myrtle Beach while staying in our home. So please have fun.
2) We put as much effort, love, blood, sweat and finances available to make our home as nice as possible. Please treat it with respect... Like you would expect someone to treat yours. It means the world to us. Renting our vacation home is extremely stressful for us, but a necessity.
3) PLEASE Have a clear mind. You are now directly on the beach. There is sand and salt EVERYWHERE. Our unit is professionally cleaned after each visitor departs. That being said, as soon as you arrive, you are tracking lots of sand , garage grime, and salt into the unit from the parking garage, the elevator lobby, and the hallways. A good tip is to either remove shoes at door and brush off feet, or give floors a quick sweep every couple of days. ( you'll be amazed at how much sand has been brought in.) 
4) Please do NOT use the bed comforters or blankets as beach blankets. Be considerate and think of the next renter. None of the items from the unit should ever leave the unit. This includes chairs, wine glasses, kitchen accessories , ect. As much as We try , there's nothing worse than a late night call that there's not enough wine glasses... Sorry but it's nearly impossible to stop people from misplacing or losing things. AGAIN,.. Please keep an open mind. Sometimes it's ok to drink wine from a tumbler. My Grandpa always did. And He died a happy man.
5) Please don't sit on furniture with wet clothes.
6) Please be considerate of our neighbors. They mean no harm.. Treat them
