Just returned from our first visit to Garden City, SC where we stayed in Penthouse J on the 9th floor. Lovely, tastefully decorated, floor to ceiling windows all around, beautiful tiled deck with a hot tub, full kitchen and just an elevator away from the pool and the beach. Loved every minute. The only thing I would have improved upon...

I recently stayed in unit 101 again. The owners have now totally redone the entire unit. New cellular blind window treatments, new floors throughout, new cabinets with stainless appliances, new he washer dryer, very nice walking shower with heavy sliding glass door. We were so comfortable in all new beds & furniture for the most part. The decorators or owners...

I've been staying at the SurfMaster since I was a kid and absolutely love the condos here. We've stayed in probably half of the rooms over the years and always have a beautiful room. The neighborhood and beach are also impeccable and a great place for family vacations.

You never know exactly what you will get when you rent a condo. I have been surprised good and bad in the past. This was a wonderful surprise. We walked in about 10 pm after a long drive. The condo was clean and very nicely furnished. The decor is very tasteful coastal themed. Loved it. The view off the balcony...

Perfect! Highly recommend Garden City to any couple that wants to get the myrtle beach experience without the tourist trap feel. And yet still be close enough to everything the Strand has to offer! Murrells inlet is just minutes to the south and some great dining. And myrtle beach central is minutes to the north and all for the kids...

Fantastic view and great location but unit is a disappointment. Appliances are very poor, kitchen isn't very well stocked with dishes,etc. Place is very "tired" and badly in need of a complete renovation and upgrade. Bed linens need to be replaced with new sheets, duvets, etc. Plumbing fixtures all need replacing.

There is nothing like waking up to a million dollar view. I stayed here with my wife and 2 young daughters. There was plenty of room and the views were great. The pools are big and not too crowded. The beach is wide and you have plenty of space to yourself. Overall i really liked the hotel and the unit...

Our family stayed in Surfmaster 1108 last July and loved every relaxing minute of it! We were impressed with how organized everything was! We walked in and were so happy with the clean rooms, the space and especially the view! We looked right out at the gorgeous ocean and lovely beach! We'd definitely stay here again!

Be careful when renting this condo (M903). After reserving the condo, just a few hours after, the owners decided that they were going to use it and had the sales person call me to advise me that they have to cancel my reservation !!!!! My flight has been reserved already ! They offer a different condo but not besides the...

Great place! We stayed in 108 and it was perfect. The building was managed very well. The condo was huge and the view was perfect. When we come back to Surfside this is where we will stay. I loved that our bedroom opened up to the balcony.
