About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Beautiful beach house located in desirable Surfside Beach, South Carolina, just eight miles south of Myrtle Beach. This house is within 100 feet of the white sands of the great Atlantic Ocean. Surfside Beach is known as the 'Family Beach' and offers many attractions for all ages. However, if action is what you want... then action packed Myrtle Beach is just minutes away.

Our house, known as 'Junebug's Retreat' ,was completed in May of 2006. It replaced our family beach house, 'The Fourth Estate', which sat on the same land dating back to '63. Over the years, this home provided fun and fellowship for our family, and our desire is that 'Junebug's Retreat' will continue to provide fun and fellowship for our family as well as others.

The house boasts 5BR and 5.5BA. The first floor contains a master bedroom with en suite whirlpool bath, .5 bath in the hallway, washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and living room with 40" Smart TV. All floors on the first floor are hardwood except for the bathrooms that have tile. Ceilings on the 1st and 2nd level are smooth 9ft ceilings. There are 2 porches off of the first floor, one large open porch on the front of the house, and a screened porch on the rear of the house that overlooks the gorgeous backyard w/pool. For your convenience, there is an elevator that goes to the 1st floor. The second level has 4BR and 4BA. Three of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, the fourth bedroom utilizes a hall bath. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and LED tvs. There is carpet in the bedrooms, tile in the bathrooms, and hardwood in the hallway and stairway. There is also a porch of the 2nd level accessed by 2 bedrooms on the front of the house.

There is parking for at least 3 vehicles underneath the house and 4 in the driveway. There is a gas grill provided in a grilling area on the side of the house as well as a table with 4 chairs under the house for your convenience. The backyard/pool area is beautiful. The entire area is stone except for 2 planting areas that each have a palm tree and assorted plants. Please see our photos of the yard to get an appreciation of its beauty!

Why Meg Reed chose Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

This isn't just a beach house, it's a beach home. Love has been put into decorating and making it feel more like your home. There are lots of books throughout the house for you to enjoy as well as board games for the whole family to enjoy. There are 3 porches for you to enjoy, 2 on the front of the home and 1 screened porch overlooking the backyard and pool. I think that you could ask anyone that has rented from us since 2006, and they would say how friendly and easy to work with we are. New for the 2015 season is a backyard/heated pool renovation that is absolutely beautiful!

What makes this house unique

Only steps to the beach and the public access is directly in front of the house. The backyard and pool area is like a resort and very private, unlike many homes in the area.

Very nice and clean. Great location to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

My family, friends and I had a great time at Junebug's Retreat. Pool was very nice and location (less than a 100 yards) to the beach was great. Kitchen had all of the things that we needed to prepare meals for 12 adults and teenagers. Only wished that there was a DVD player available for little kids to watch movies. All in all a very beautiful house and I am going to recommend it to my friends. Thank you Meg for letting us spend time in your beautiful home.😃?

Great family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

What a great property in a great location!!! We had 9 people ranging in age from 70+ to 16 and we all had room to relax. The house is well appointed and comfortable with great porches. The pool area is beautiful and far better looking than many others in the area, we spent most of our days there. The beach is an easy walk as is Surfside Pier. The area and people are friendly and safe! I walked or ran daily and loved the neighborhoods. Meg was great to work with - very prompt in responding to any need we had. You won't regret staying at June Bug's Retreat!!

Great Family Reunion and Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a Family reunion and for a wedding. We stayed here with 5 couples and the Junebug was perfect for us. It was clean and had nice space for us all. There was plenty of parking and a short walk to the beach. A lot of places to eat in the area and bakeries for pastries. Meg was extremely easy to work with. Overall experience was fantastic!

Family special times

  • 5 of 5

Family reunion time for a graduation celebration and a birthday party. We had 8, and 3 more and their dog stayed close to the Pier. Updated pool area is gorgeous. Everything is so close, the golf cart was in full use. We enjoyed Benjamin's Bakery, Valentino's II, Gulfstream Café, and the Farmer's Market on Tuesday. The week was too short, we'll be back in 2016. For our 6th year.

Junebug's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Five couples stayed here for Harley bike week. House was great, within walking distance from the beach. Porches on front and back of the house with pool in the back. There was plenty of parking in the front. Maybe even better than all the above was the communication from the owner, Meg was the best!

Great house & even better location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 2 other families. 6 adults, 4 boys (9 & 10 y/o) and 2 girls (12 y/o). Loved it! The bedrooms are laid out perfectly. We all had plenty of space to get away from each other when needed. The porches are fantastic and the heated pool is a great escape, especially at night to keep the kids entertained. The location can not be beat either, extremely short walk to the beach. We also loved the proximity to Murrells Inlet and other local eateries (Bubbas Fish Shack, Conch Cafe and The Grilled Cheese and Crab Cake Company). Best yet, the owners were fantastic to work with. We will we back!
