"Sandy Feet Retreat" is a recently updated beach house, mere steps from the ocean. It is a comfortable 3 bedroom, 2 bath home perfectly located only 1/2 block from the beach, and 0.8 miles from the surfside pier. If you need a little extra room please check out our other VRBO listing # 929524, "On the Half Shell". These two homes share a side yard, and would be great for a family gathering to accommodate several families.

Sandy Feet Retreat offers comfortable bedding, and Flat Screen televisions throughout. We also have a new "Beach Life" Golf Cart available for rent for $200 per week. The home offers a fully equipped galley style kitchen, complete with dishwasher, microwave, oven, and well stocked kitchenware. Perfect for cooking in, any style...Steam-pot, blender, etc.

The living area offers an open floor plan, 43 " flat screen tv, dvd player, wifi, and plenty of comfortable seating. The home also comes equipped with a washer & dryer, ceiling fans, central heat and air, hardwood flooring and tile throughout.

The sleeping accommodations offer 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All bedrooms have comfortable bedding, television, and cable. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a personal full bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and shares a 'jack and jill' full size bathroom with the third bedroom. The third bedroom is perfect for children but also comfortable for adults. It has a full size bed, and a bunk bed (with full size mattress down, and single mattress up), and dvd player. We also have a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room.

Outdoor amenities include a front porch, covered parking, picnic table, weber charcoal grill, outdoor shower, and hose.

Pets welcome!!

Sandy Feet Retreat is conveniently located close to many of the areas best attractions. The home is only a few blocks from the neighborhood park/playground, and about 1 mile from a water park. Garden city beach is directly South of Surfside Beach and ends on a peninsula at the mouth of Murrells Inlet. The Surfside Pier, and yummy River City Grill are located 0.8 miles away. Other attractions include Marlin Quay Marina, Gulf Stream Café, original Sam’s Corner, and Sara J’s Seafood Restaurant.

South of Surfside Beach is Murrells Inlet, a seaside community that is considered to be the 'seafood capital of South Carolina, but is also home to some of the nation's best golf courses. Once primarily a fishing village, the town is best known for the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk, a half-mile boardwalk overlooking a pristine saltmarsh, and many award-winning seafood and barbecue restaurants along highway 17 business.

Brookgreen Gardens is a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve built on four former rice plantations. It is located slightly south of Murrells Inlet, and features several themed gardens with american figurative sculptures, trails through several nature reserve ecosystems, and the lowcountry zoo.

If you’re looking for places to shop, Inlet Square Mall, the Market Common, Coastal Grand, Myrtle Beach Mall, Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, two Tanger Shopping Outlets, and many more shopping facilities are all within an easy drive from surfside beach. Looking for some entertainment, take in a show at alabama theater, Medieval Times, Pirates Voyage, the Carolina Opry, and Legends in Concert. Other fun options are the Ripley's Aquarium, Wonder Works, Alligator Adventure, Hard Rock Cafe, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, and the Pavilion Nostalgia Park.

Several other points of interest include the waterfront community of Georgetown, the third oldest city in South Carolina and second largest seaport in South Carolina. There is also historic Conway with its downtown riverwalk area nestled on the banks of the Waccamaw River. Both towns include fine dining, shopping, and historic sites.

Surfside Beach, is closely located to Waccamaw Hospital and several urgent care facilities.

Whatever your heart desires, whatever your need, the South strand offers a little something on everyone’s to-do list. We have a variety of wonderful restaurants, fantastic retail stores, creative miniature golf, exceptional charter fishing, exciting water sports…and of course, nothing but relaxation.

About Ashley Sabo

Our family includes my husband and I, our 2 wonderful children, and 2 laborador retrievers. I attended Clemson University, and my husband was a US Marine. I am originally from Charlottesville, VA and my husband from Orange Park, FL. We met in Charleston, SC and landed in Charlotte, NC to raise our family. We love Charlotte, but also love the coast!

Ashley Sabo purchased this house in 2014

Why Ashley Sabo chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

We purchased our first VRBO rental 6 years ago in Cape Charles, VA. We enjoyed it so much that we purchased our second VRBO rental in 2014 in Surfside Beach, SC. We love Surfside Beach for it's 'Family Beach' atmosphere, and it beautiful, clean and well maintained beaches.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home because of the close proximity to the beach, the private feel, and the open floor plan.

Nice beach house

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this property and it met our needs perfectly. Very close to the beach and we rented the golf cart to get around, so parking was never an issue. The 3 bedrooms provided enough privacy for our group of 6 adults and one baby. I would recommend staying here.

Great house close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Home was clean and exactly as advertised. Our families enjoyed our stay immensely. The best feature was probably the proximity to the beach. Just a short 2 min walk and you're at the ocean!

The best in Surfside!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spacious home that is only steps to the beach. Having stayed many years at Ocean Lakes this was a welcome change at Surfside beach. Quiet, clean, shaded streets and friendly neighborhood. The beach almost seemed empty compared to OL. The home is actually better than advertised and very CLEAN. The service Co. does an outstanding job. Do not make a mistake and stay elsewhere. Perfect vacation!

PS- and a very nice neighbor.

Perfect House, Steps from the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sandy Feet retreat. Surfside Beach was great..a quiet family beach, not crowded, and just what we needed for our family vacation. The house was updated nicely, beds were very comfortable, and we loved that we were able to have our dog there with us, also. Ashley was quick to respond and take care of any issues we had. The golf cart was fun, but not a must have as the beach is so close! We are already looking forward to our next visit.
