About the property

Sea Watch VI, First floor, Ocean front, Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Our condo is pet free and smoke free for your comfort. There is no smoking inside or on the decks of the property. Our beach home has a distressed 'beachy'" look with incredible newly refinished distressed old tobacco barn pine wood floors throughout which gives it a comfortable feeling. I love the small spaces between the boards because the sand from toes ends up in them until vacuumed up. If you are looking for a typical high-end hotel/motel vacation with a pool, this is not for you. If you are looking for a lovely, comfortable, relaxing, peaceful, sand and very close ocean vacation for your family this is the condo for you. As you enter from the street front door, you already see the ocean waves because there are so many glass sliding doors and windows. The ocean front of the condo is almost all glass. The kitchen has a large ocean view glass sliding door on the side and the living room has side windows and ocean view sliding doors and large windows which is almost 180 degrees ocean front. Access to the beach is from the large ocean front porch to the back door, down 8 steps, and then another 3 step from another deck and there you are! SAND IN YOUR TOES! I have beach chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys in a locker under neath the condo for your use. If you need an umbrella, you need to bring your own though! A perfect place to relax, play, read, laugh and enjoy the sand and water!

Many of our summer guests return year-after-year as a family tradition and/or return for a second week later in the summer. We also have winter snowbirds who return every year for 5 months. We only rent weekly from Saturday to Saturday from April to November. November through March is monthly.

Access to the water's edge is probably easier and quicker than any place on the beach with only 11 steps down to beach level. Being on the first floor, both the living room and master have large glass sliding doors for a complete close ocean front view and walk out to the large porch and beach. The waves can be heard even with the doors closed! Master bedroom has a king bed. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a twin. From the over-sized, covered porch there is direct back-door access to the sundeck, beach and outside shower. Both living room and master bedroom are oceanfront and access the porch. Rocking chairs on the shaded porch make this a wonderful place to relax, enjoy family and ocean. Less than a ten-minute walk to the Garden City pier.

Especially suited for anyone who wants easy access to the beach and wants to listen to the waves all the time. Great for families with children. You can enjoy the porch and keep an eye on your kids on the beach just a few feet away. Great for couples who want a get-a-way. Just great for everyone!

WIFI connection in unit. The condo is rented almost all year ...every year.



Payment is available online at this website. Rents Saturday to Saturday. Check-in at 4:00 pm and Check-out by 11:00 am. One cleaning fee charge. Bed and bath linens available for rent.

About Yara Selph

My husband and I fell in love with this condo when we walked through the front door and sat on the porch in the rocking chairs. We have been improving it for many years. Because it is rented for most of theyear, we have met many wonderful families. We love sharing with families who play and grow closer together. We live in Utah but love Myrtle Beach. We are all about families as you can imagine with our 7 children and 25 grandchildren It takes work to build strong families and we hope our condo provides a place to enjoy, relax, and bound!!!!

Yara Selph purchased this condo in 1998

Why Yara Selph chose Garden City

It's the closest to the beach than all the others. As you can see, our condo is a corner unit with many windows. The porch is big and shaded all afternoon. It has so much character!

What makes this condo unique

Reserved parking space in front of the building.

Very close to the beach.

Almost a 180 view of the beach from the porch.

Large porch with rocking chairs for relaxing.

Wonderful comfortable beds.

Full kitchen with probably everything you might need to cook.

Old tobacco barn hardwood floors that are NOT perfect so the sand from toes slides in between the cracks.

Two sides with ocean views from plenty of windows.

Not too far from grocery stores.

Close to the marsh where many different birds nest and eat. There are crabs to catch as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

...both of us were really amazed to see the attention to detail that you had taken in decorating and equipping a rental place. I don't think we've ever seen any other house or condo where he guests were so welcomed and so trusted with "the silverware", so to speak. We especially enjoyed the decoration - all the soft, lovely colors with the aqua sea in the background. (not very far in the background, either. I've never stayed so close to the ocean before!) You have quite a flair for putting things together to reflect both beauty and comfort. While I love the impressionist art, my husband is still talking about the pig and the piece of bacon which had refused the sunscreen. We were delighted to stay in your charming place.

Relaxing and Peaceful Haven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at this lovely "beach house". We were definitely not disappointed with the place! It is very well kept and comfortable. The porch is magnificent and the view remarkable. Feels very private and homey. Have already recommended it to several of our golfing buddies who visit the area frequently. SOOOOO much nicer than staying in the central area of Myrtle Beach. Great location, great accommodations, great restaurants and sights close by!.

Great condo! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect with easy access and views of the beach. The kitchen has everything you need plus a view of the ocean as you’re working at the island. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable and the shower pressure was great. Close to grocery stores and anything else you might need. We would stay here again.

Cozy and inviting!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay the first week in September. The few steps up to the front door was easy for my mother's bad knee and the easy access to the beach from the back porch was wonderful for all of us. I could sit in my beach chair and watch my four year old granddaughter as she ran back and forth to my mother in the condo and to me on the beach without worrying about her. That in itself was a huge plus because I could relax without having to chase that busy child!!! Loved the wood floors and of course the rocking chairs out back. Unfortunately we had to leave a day early because of hurricane Irma, mainly so we would not get stuck in evacuation traffic. We hope to be able to return to Yara's condo. It was lovely!

This was our second year staying at Yara's condo. We absolutely love it! If we are not on the beach or at the pier, we are rocking on the big porch. Can't wait until next year!

We had a great stay. The condo was right on the beach and the kids had so much fun playing on the deck when we weren't on the beach. The giant rocking chairs were great for rocking the babies to sleep.

Old Historic fishing town, Murrell's Inlet, is 8 miles south on Hwy 17 which according to locals is the Sea Food Capital of South Carolina! There is deep sea fishing charters to experience the thrill of the catch and packing the fish for the trip home services.

At nearby Marlin Quay Marina just south on the peninsula, one can rent jet-skis, Kayaks, parasailing equipment, beach bicycles and enjoy a spectacular sunset dinner at the Gulfstream Cafe over looking the unique tidal marsh during either high tide or low tide. Garden City offers the closest oceanfront accommodations to Murrell's Inlet and to Brookgreen Gardens, one of the world's largest outdoor sculpture gardens.
