About Wendy Sanders
I GREW UP IN COLUMBIA SC. CURRENTLY LIVE HERE IN OCEAN LAKES. AS A CHILD, I SPENT EVERY/ALL SUMMER IN OCEAN LAKES. IT WAS ONLY NATURAL I WANTED MY OWN KIDS TO ENJOY THE SAME. SO WE BOUGHT THE SURF SHACK IN 1989 AND HAVE SPENT EVERY SUMMER THERE SINCE. WE NOW HAVE THREE HOMES IN OCEAN LAKES, SURF SHACK, M-49 A TWO STORY (5BED3BATH RENTAL) AND A MOBILE HOME FOR OUR PERSONAL USE.
Wendy Sanders purchased this House in 1989

Pool / Spa
Moldy and falling apart. Made us sick.
This property is in very poor condition. It is falling apart. The floors are sloped and uneven. The handles to the bathroom fixtures fall off. You have to angle them just right to get hot water. Light switches are tacked everywhere including the ceiling. The second bathroom is impossible to use. The bathtub is small enough for a child and you could not stand in it much less bath in it. The worse part is the smell. It hits you when you open the front door. Very strong odor of mold, mildew and artificial air fresheners. After the first night we were sick and had headaches while in the house. We woke with sore throats and sinus pain. By the next day we had enough and were ready to leave. The owner was kind enough to switch us to another property. It was clean and no smells thankfully. I appreciated the gesture but the air conditioner didn’t work and it was 85 degrees in the house. On top of being sick this made for a miserable vacation. I was relieved to leave for home.
I am truly sorry for your negative experience at the Surf Shack. Let me address/clarify these issues.
MUSTY SMELL: This issue was address in early summer, with no explanation from professionals. It seem to resolve its self until mid August. It was faint to noticeable to me and others that I asked. However, I do understand some people are more sensitive. It was not terrible though. In fact the renter hesitated when I offered to move them to another house. The moisture problem has been found and fixed. I think many homes were adversely affected by the unusual amount of rain/humidity we had this summer.
TUB AND FAUCETS: All hot and cold faucets in the house are standard and in proper working order. Upon her text notification, I went over, confirmed hot water was working and demonstrated
Left=hot Right=cold. (idk, still scratching my head on that one)
FLOORS do not slope. LIGHTS SWITCHES: Lights switches are all standard with the exception of three (3) on the mobile home side of the house. Which were installed in the ceiling by the factory.
TUB: site description clearly states small tub.
AC: I moved renter to a beautiful 5 bedroom home. This renter never informed me the air conditioning was not working. I have a havc tec on call 24/7 for my properties. It was working as of 3 days prior. I could have had it fixed within the hour given the opportunity.
NOTE Most guest thoroughly enjoy staying at the Surf Shack. This renter has either bad luck or bad karma, or both.
Nice place but had a VERY STRONG mildew/mold smell.
Nice property but the smell of mold or mildew was so strong! I didn't see any other reviews of the smell so I am thinking its common for the homes to have this smell. I asked someone that worked at the campground if it was normal. He said it can be because they are closed up during the winter. And maybe as more people stay during the summer the smell will lighten up but it was A HORRIBLE strong smell! The only other thing is if its all adults staying in the home then everyone will share one shower. One bathroom only has a small tub with no shower and the other has a stand up shower so we all had to share the shower. But if kids are going then they could use the small tub. The owner is really nice!!!
Sorry to hear your stay was not pleasant. The smell has just recently become an issue.We are trying to resolve it by locating the origin source.. It will get resolved asap. Sorry this happened during your stay.
The Surf Shack was an excellent choice for our long weekend at the beach. Cute, clean, quaint. The grandbaby even said it was the best beach house ever! Looking forward to staying again.
