About Gordon & Mary Wilkins

Mary and I have been staying in the Myrtle beach area for the last 17 years and eight years ago we decided to invest in this home. The home needed a lot of TLC. Over the last six years we have completely renovated the entire home and it has become a haven for us, our five children and all of the people who have stayed over the years. As a recent retired member of the Air Force after 28 years, I am looking forward to spending a little more time at the home. As a skilled handyman, this will only make the home better as I continue to improve the home through improvement projects.

Gordon & Mary Wilkins purchased this house in 2005

Why Gordon & Mary Wilkins chose Surfside Beach

This community is very comfortable and relaxing. the homes are spaced well giving the homes true yards where kids can play. The streets are all 15 MPH and wide enough to accommodate larger vehicles but at the same time safe for children to walk to and from the beach and pools.

What makes this house unique

This property is only 500 feet from the indoor pool which is great on those rainy days when the beach is not an option. this home is very large and very comfortable. It is like being at home away from home as all you need is food and the need to relax as everything is taken care of for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our vacation home that we have opened up to the public. We decided to share an experience we have had the pleasure of enjoying for years. Going on vacation can be stressful but not here! Our home is in a gated secure community with friendly neighbors and low milage streets which offers a real peace of mind and an extremely relaxing place to be. Just breathe in the fresh ocean air and all your stress fades away! There is no better way to vacation than to stay in a home away from home like ours. You will enjoy your stay in this cozy yet well sized home with all the comforts. You are welcomed!!

A casual comfortable beach home

  • 4 of 5

Just as advertised. Owners are responsive and a pleasure to deal with. A tad cluttered perhaps.

Such a beautiful, comfortable, family friendly place to stay! Everything you could want and more!

  • 5 of 5

This home was fantastic! It was so family friendly and comfortable. I usually stay in an oceanfront room in one of the big hotels but I won't do that anymore! This is 100% better! If you are looking for a great place for a family beach getaway then look no further! This is the place for you! And by the way, the owners are super nice people who will go out of their way to make sure you have the best time ever!

Great location, lots of room

  • 4 of 5

House was stocked with lots of extras you don't always see in a rental. Had a hiccup or 2 but the owners were right on it to fix the problem. Nice neighborhood, everyone very friendly. Right around the corner from the dog park which my dog loved. Had lots of amenities in the neighborhood but we didn't have time to use any of them.
