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 Surfside 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.

Junebug’s Retreat was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week there. The house was very clean, location was great, and Meg was great when we had questions. The pool was the best part! We’d definitely stay again if we come back to the areas. Highly recommended!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Our family stays at a beach every year. This property was clean, well kept and had everything we needed. It was like staying at our own home. It was close to the beach and had its own pool. If we again want to stay in this area we would not hesitate to rent this place.

5 Fabulous Ladies, 1 Fabulous Week!

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly clean! Beautifully decorated! Roomy! The first three thoughts which come to mind thinking about "Junebug Retreat". Our group of 5 ladies came to Myrtle Beach for an annual golf event and this home was perfect! With 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, we each had private space to "spread out" with plenty of linens, comfortable beds, and a TV in each room. The community spaces (decks, living room, dining area, pool) were each designed to accommodate multiple people so we could all gather in the same place or spread around the home in small groups. The pool was a wonderful place to unwind each evening. The thoughtfully provided beach cart and chairs encouraged us to make the very short walk to the beach and enjoy the ocean also.

The attention to detail in the decor is wonderful. It feels like being in a loving home instead of a rental. Nothing was in the way! It drives me crazy when I have to "undecorate" a rental in order to have space for my personal things. Meg Reed has this home beautiful and functional - I took pictures to copy in my own home. In addition, the kitchen is equipped with everything you'll need to cook a great meal and set a beautiful table!

Location location location - this house has it all! We were close to the beach, restaurants, and still had quick access to the main highway which was especially helpful for getting to the golf courses each morning. (There are several nice courses near Junebug, but we were playing in a tournament which required some travel each day.)

Junebug quickly became the center and focus of our groups daily events. It was the great unifier because Meg Reed's kindness and consideration for her guests was so evident throughout this home. The elevator was a lifesaver for bringing up heavy luggage! I highly recommend everyone rent this home. You'll feel like a dear friend and not just a "renter".

Our family had an awesome time at Junebug's Retreat!

  • 4 of 5

The house was everything described and our family had a great time. Easy access to the beach and a great pool to cool down in. Meg (the owner) was super easy to work with during the scheduling and had any issues come up during our stay (thankfully none did) I'm sure she would have been very responsive. Great vacation to end our summer!

Perfect family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as advertised. Plenty of room for our entire family. We played board games, went to the beach, crabbing, shrimping, swimming in the pool, as well as some shopping and dinners out. A relaxing vacation. This home also has an elevator! WE did not use it, however if you had someone with mobility issues, this would be the perfect house for you.
