"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.

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.

Why Ashley Sabo chose Surfside 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.

Winter Get-A-Way at Sandy Feet

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location...just steps from the beach. Although surprisingly cold during our stay, we were able to enjoy daily walks on the beach, many of the quaint restaurants at Murrell's Inlet, a day at Broadway at the Beach, nice long walk along the beach at Huntington Beach State Park and visits to some of the local antique shops. The house was perfect for us. Two couples with dogs. Would definitely come back and would recommend this property!

Don’t pass this one up.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 really enjoyed Thanksgiving at Sandy Feet. Its shabby chic beach decor is very relaxing and the 3 bedrooms/2 baths were more than sufficient. We cooked a full Thanksgiving meal and the kitchen had everything we needed (except salt and pepper we purchased for just $.99 at the very close Bi-Lo). We brought a golf cart just for fun, and we used it only for trips to the store and the pier. But the water is so close, we really didn’t need it to get to the beach. Ashley is a joy to work this. Don’t pass one up!

Nice for the location and price

  • 4 of 5


Location (~1 block from beach and <1mile from surfside drive)

Beautifully decorated

Reasonably priced



Outdated kitchen and bathrooms and low quality appliances

There are no supplies - no pantry items, laundry supplies, or beach items

Sheets and towels were not included (which I found weird)

The towel rack fell off the wall and the kitchen fluorescent cover was cracked and falling off (owner was very apologetic and apparently fixed this right after we left)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! We apologize the kitchen did not meet your expectations, we do our best to provide all items needed for a comfortable stay, and have this information available to the customers, as well as photographs. Upon receiving the notification of the towel bar and kitchen light they were repaired within 24 hours. This was not reported to me until 1 day prior to departure and the light was reported after departure. We solve any and all concerns promptly for all of our customers. We offer a linen service by customer request. This information is very clearly stated on our webpage, reservation contract, as well as our entry and departure instructions. We are grateful that traditionally our customers are very satisfied with our home, as noted in our many wonderful reviews. However, we are always open to feedback to continue to improve and offer our customers a very comfortable experience at our home.

Sandy Feet is a Real treat!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great! It was perfect for my family. The home was spacious. This Home would be perfect for a family with children because there are bunk beds! The jack and Jill bathroom was great. Ashley is really great and I strongly recommend her property.
