We love the location and the area! The condos are clean and well located. We have stayed with two different owners, Melanie Adams and Kim Clatterbuck and both were sensational to deal with. We can not wait to go back again this April!

Thank you for your review of one of our condominium units at Surf Side Shores. We are always glad to hear that guests of one of our owners have had a pleasant and enjoyable experience. I’m sure the two owners mentioned by name appreciate your kind comments as well. We are delighted that you plan to stay with us again. Surf Side Shores is not a hotel or condotel type facility. Side Shores is a complex consisting of 96 individually-owned condominiums in two nine-story buildings. As such, decor, furnishings, amenities, etc. will differ from condo to condo. There are no on-site rental desks or offices or walk-in rentals, and any rentals are handled either by the individual owner or a local rental agency. As the homeowners association, we do all that we can to maintain the common areas and to keep all facilities maintained for the enjoyment or our owners and their guests. It is our recommendation to prospective guests that you pay careful attention to photos and descriptions on any rental site and that you carefully read reviews and rely on recommendations from others for any condo-type rentals. Again, thanks for staying with our Surf Side family and thanks for your helpful review and comments.

As for your only having one roll of toilet tissue in each bathroom, being a rental condo and not a hotel type facility, guests are usually supplied by the rental agency or owner with a "start-up" supply of such items as soap, toilet tissue, washing and dish washing powders, etc. and most guests make a trip to a nearby grocery story either on their way in or shortly after arriving. Worth noting that the units are equipped with washer-dryers and usually a fully equipped kitchen. Thanks again for being a guest at Surf Side Shores and for your helpful comments to prospective guests. We hope you will visit us again.

Stayed in unit 2501 (3 bed/3 bath). Of paramount importance was that the condo was clean and well kept. While the furniture was not "new" it was in good condition. The kitchen was reasonably stocked with equipment and the washer and dryer worked well. The access to the beach is

I'm sorry you found the pools crowded at times but we hope you enjoyed the fact that Surf Side has such as large amount of beach area and also the two regular pools and two smaller kiddie pools, all adjacent to the beach. If you liked Surf Side in the peak summer, you would really love it during less crowded months, so pleas try us again. Again, we are happy that you have a pleasant stay at Surf Side and that you shared your opinion with others and we hope you will visit again!
