The owner was wonderful to work with and we cannot say enough on how much we enjoyed staying here. It felt like home as soon as we walked in front door. I will absolutely make this where I stay from now on. The location was wonderful. It was close to beach and quiet at night. Having the pool was great to hang out at after a long day golfing. Again I cannot say enough on how wonderful the owner was to work with. The best.

Consider ourselves very lucky to have found this home

  • 5 of 5

When booking our family vacation, we decided on Myrtle Beach but didn't know much about the area. We knew a week we could go, a minimum size (two families vacationing together) and that we wanted a pool. When we found Beach Retreat it fit all of our categories so we booked it. As soon as we got there we knew we got incredibly lucky! The setting in Surfside Beach is beautiful and such a great location. It's ideally located so close to the beach but yet that block away to keep traffic and noise down. The pool is the perfect size for 4 adults and 4 kids and the house is great. It's bigger than the pictures make it seem and everything was in good condition. The owners were very nice and great with communication.

As for the location, the water park in Surfside was a really fun place to spend the day. We had delicious burgers at River City, amazing baked goods at Benjamin's Bakery (those square donuts are a must!), and the fried pickles at Bubba's were very worth the wait. We thought about heading in to MB to watch the fireworks on Wednesday night but the quick walk down to the beach was a much better idea. Great place to see them, no traffic or crowds and the kids got to still play on the beach.

A little further out - the 8am jetskis from Myrtle Beach Watersports was a great way to start the day. Pick up a coupon book to get $20 off the 8am spot (and so much else around town!) and enjoy some fun before the heat and crowds really pick up. Boardwalk at the Beach was a great place to do some shopping and get some great food. The cheese fries at Liberty Brewery are a must! There is certainly no lack of min-golf places either.

All in all, we loved staying at this house in Surfside and would highly recommend this location.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in June, and had a wonderful time. This house is beautiful and what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. The kitchen is well stocked also. There were 10 of us all together that stayed here including small children, teenagers, and grandparents. Everyone had a fabulous time. Its a very short walk to the beach, food and shops. I did have groceries delivered from a local grocery store-Lowes, I personally am not going that route again. I was missing items that i had ordered, a different amount was charged to my credit card than was originally planned on, etc... There are a variety of grocery stores close by, next time I'll be doing my own shopping at walmart. I absolutely loved our vacation, as did everyone on the trip, I really cannot wait to come back. Betty the owner is just a wonderful person, and so helpful. I can't say enough good things about the whole experience.

(if you plan on doing jet skiing go to Murrells Inlet, much calmer water than out in the ocean!! also, we took our 5 year old on a boat ride called Pirate Adventures, I highly recommend it, it is also in Murrells Inlet at Crazy Sister Marina).

Ideal Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last two weeks of October 2010, at the Beach Retreat. The owner's, Betty & Jim were wonderful to rent from. Rooms were immaculate all appliances were in good,working condition, and the kitchen was well stocked with all my needs in cooking utensils.

Plenty of room for 5 adults and one toddler to play & relax. Beach only one block away. We swam every day in both the ocean and pool, people could tell we were from the North, water was still warm to us! We look forward to a return visit, and we highly recommend the Beach Retreat as a place to start making sweet vacation memories.

We loved our weekend getaway and the fact the Stanley's are biker friendly to responsible adult's like ourselves. From rental questions prior to us going, we had all of our answer's immediately. This house is beautiful, clean and has all of the amenities of home. The walk to the beach is "very short", and we loved the location being not far from most, yet exclusive enough to not be "stuck in traffic" all the time. We look forward to renting again and taking the kids because there's plenty to do and it's welcoming for just about everyone. Thanks again, and we will see your properties in the future.
