About Judy

Mark and I have been married 27 years and have 2 sons. Our oldest is 24 and he loves the beach! We work tirelessly advocating for him due to his diagnosis of Down Syndrome and Autism. Our youngest is 21 and attends The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park NY. He hopes to become a successful chef and eventually own his own restaurant. I enjoy cooking, gardening, and decorating. Mark is a manager for an electrical supply company and has worked in the industry for 35 years We enjoy spending time at the beach with family and friends and have created wonderful memories here. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Judy purchased this house in 1996

Why Judy chose Surfside Beach

We have been coming to this area all our lives. We decided in 1996 to buy a house in Surfside Beach because it is a very family friendly town that has a wide beach, unlike some of the other beaches in the area. Short walk to pier, playgrounds, restaurants, bars, and library. Our house is close to Murrells Inlet (2 miles) where you can go for great seafood and live music. There is a boardwalk on the inlet where you can walk to different restuarants and music venues or just enjoy looking out at the pristine salt marsh brimming with oyster beds.

There are so many fun and interesting activities for every age all within a short walk or drive. We felt this was the perfect area to buy a home.

What makes this house unique

Our family loves to watch sports and movies so we enjoy watching on the recent addition of a 60 inch HDTV.

We stay on top of updating property, and have provided high quality furnishings not your basic rental houses furniture.

Each year you choose to stay in our vacation home expect to see something new.

Great meeting place for family!

  • 5 of 5

The house is close to the pier where we ate breakfast in the morning. The house itself is well stocked for cooking any kind of meal you would want to prepare. We enjoyed walks on the beach as well as relaxing dips in the pool! We will definitely stay here again!

Great vacation home. I've been renting this house off and on for the last 17 years.

If I'm vacationing in the Surfside area...this is where I'm staying if it's available.

Great house, just as advertized and no disappointments

  • 4 of 5

Week of Aug 5 through Aug 12, 2017. This was a wonderful property and was well taken care of. The kitchen was well stocked with most anything you might need. The rooms were a nice size and we had plenty of room for our family to gather for family time or to have some private time. The weather was not beach friendly for most of our stay so having the roomy space was wonderful. It was next to the pool which allowed us to keep an eye on the grandchildren while they swam. The parking under the house is just like having reserved parking and there is plenty of room to store the beach chairs, tents, and toys and not have to carry them up the stairs. We would highly recommend this house.

We had a wonderful family experience . Portofibo III was the perfect size for our 11 family members. The location is ideal, within walking distance to the beach and the pool right next to the house. Loved it! Shopping, restaurants and downtown Myrtle Beach just minutes away. We would definitely stay again.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was perfect for all our adult children and all of their children. We loved the location, the bedroom sizes and the spacious living area. The pool was right outside our door and made it easy to always keep an eye on our grandchildren. Our weather was beautiful and it was a week of special memories made in the perfect spot! Thank you Judy!
