About Catherine Carter

My family and I found Surfside Beach in 2014. We enjoy our beach cottage and the ability to walk to the beach and share the outdoors with each other. I have a small family of 3 and with my son now all grown up we are working towards retiring at The Sun Drop. We enjoy being able to share our home with you, your family, and friends.

Catherine Carter purchased this house in 2014

Why Catherine Carter chose Surfside Beach

We loved this small community so much that we purchased The Sun Drop as our future retirement home. This small town is so relaxing and peaceful, with great neighbors, and peace and quiet.

What makes this house unique

The Sun Drop cottage fits our lifestyle as we spend the majority of the time outside in our large yard and we keep the lower level stocked with all the beach toys you will need to enjoy your time at Surfside Beach - Tent, chairs, outdoor toys, and grill.

Great place!

We had a great experience at Sundrop!

It was just as described. Even the mosquitos!


When we come back to Surfside we will book the Sundrop again.

Cozy but slightly cramped

  • 2 of 5

This was our first time to go to Surfside beach. I found this rental and booked it. I wish I had read a little deeper. We are a family of 4-- a 3 yr old and 9 yr old.

When we arrived it was pretty hot. The wall unit started to cool down after several hours and there were a couple fans but they really didn't work. I ended up going to buy a fan at walmart so I could be cooler at night.

The kitchen was okay- it had more things to cook with then I was expecting which was nice and wasn't hard to make a meal.

We brought candles and off and we still couldn't sit outside due to the bugs. The yard next to the property,the grass was high so we couldn't play in it.

Overall it was ok but I will investigate better next time.

It's like a mini version of my own home.

  • 5 of 5

Far better than any hotel. Awesome that I was able to bring the dog. The property was clean, quiet, and it felt safe. Felt like a home away from home. Perfect for a couple with or without a young child or two. If I could change anything I would swap the full size bed for a queen size; sleeping together with my spouse made for a tight fit.
