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. 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 Grand Strand - Myrtle Beach

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.

Beautiful view and homey

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this home away from home on six different occasions and love it. It is our home away from home. Million dollar view along with everything you need to make your stay wonderful. Mrs. Yara is a blessing to work with and is always willing to go the extra mile for you!

Absolutely beachy!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect beach condo--the ocean right outside the back door with an amazing deck and awesome view. The décor was lovely with the relaxed beach cottage feel. My favorite things were the big blue rocker on the deck and the white-washed wood flooring throughout. Very well done Yara!!

The condo was very clean and well supplied. We had no issues during our stay except an abundance of ocean breeze and sunshine!! Yara is a wonderful host--she called to check on us and was extremely helpful with area suggestions. The next time we are in the area we will definitely be reserving again. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I love thinking of my different renters enjoying my beach house. Wayne and I always wanted a beach condo that would welcome families where they could bond and love each other. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back soon

Loved this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed for several years in the Surfside Beach area but this was the first time in Garden City and we loved it! This condo was perfect for us. From the minute we walked in we knew that we would be very comfortable staying there. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and opened up into the living room with a beautiful view of the ocean. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large enough to put our things in without feeling cluttered. We really loved the huge deck and the ability to access the beach right from there. We literally walked a few steps and were on the beach. Yara was a pleasure to know and we appreciated her promptness to answer all our questions and concerns. We will definately visit back here again.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Yara's condo and I hope there will be many more visits here. The location is perfect. Even though it was cloudy most of our stay, we had a wonderful time. The condo is so close to the ocean you can hear the waves at night even with the sliding doors closed. There is plenty of room and everything is clean and comfortable. Really hated to leave and return to reality, but am looking forward to coming again very soon.

The greatest beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We try to get to "the beach" at least every other year, and that is never enough. We are already planning our next trip back, hopefully next summer! This beach condo is the most relaxing and has the best location of any we've stayed at. Close to the beach so you don't have lug beach toys super far. Easy to run back inside to make lunch or grab snacks. The house is beachy and fun, and the beach is perfect and beautiful. Oh, I can't forget about the back porch - it is the greatest to just sit and relax and listen the ocean.

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.
