“Great rental for family with pets ”
Reviewed May 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Loved our stay. Perfect for family with pets. Don't expect fancy or plush. Count on a very clean and we'll equipped family rental. Great crabbing just at the end street. Garden City Beach and fishing pier within a short walk. Highly recommend!

“Home away from home”

To begin - Karen was very easy to get in touch with & responded promptly each time I contacted her.
My husband, myself, our three kids (two young adults and one high schooler) along with a close family friend needed a place to stay in Garden City - close to family members who reside there - for a special event. Thankfully, Serenity Haven was available. It was located just a couple miles from family, was pet friendly, close to the beach, and offered everything we needed for our trip.
There is a master bedroom with a very comfortable king-sized bed and has it's own bathroom. The bathroom has two doors which is convenient to anyone who happens to sleep on the daybed in the sunroom.
One of the other two bedrooms has a queen bed, the other has twin beds - with a jack and jill bathroom in between.
There is a laundry room with a full-sized washer and dryer.
The kitchen is decent-sized with a new stainless steel refrigerator, a full-sized stove, and a dishwasher. Everything you need is available in the kitchen. As with any rental (we have stayed in many) - the pans were a bit worn. That is to be expected. But there were many glasses, mugs, a microwave, etc. Anything you would need is there.
There's a lot of room to sit - whether eating in the kitchen or hanging out in the family room.
There are bikes in the shed that some of our family members used to ride down to the beach.
For those with younger kids - there is a park very close to the cottage.
We had a wonderful experience staying there & would most definitely stay again. The owner was wonderful. I would also like to give a shout out to the housekeeper as well. She left her card in the cottage with her # so we could inform her of our departure so she knew when to get in. She responded quickly & I was able to inform her of a couple things she may want to take note of (a couple lightbulbs were burned out) as well as having her prepared (time wise) for what I was able to help her with when I left (ex: I tossed the sheets in the wash, started the dishwasher, etc.).
The overall experience was wonderful. We hated to leave and wished we had a couple more days to spend there.

Liked best: Convenience to our family members & to the beach.
Liked least: Nothing - it was a wonderful stay. If I have to ding anything - maybe something as simple as the pans. But that is very, very minor.

“Best Family Trip In Years!!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

I stumbled on this house while searching for a pet-friendly beach rental. We have always stayed in hotels and always stayed in North Myrtle so changing it up really made us nervous. This house really surprised us. It was clean, and the owners communicated excellent with us, we had everything we needed and more. Having the bikes, the umbrella, the chairs, and the toys made our beach days so relaxing! The kitchen was well stocked too! We had never even heard of Garden City until this trip and we won't ever forget it. It was the best family trip we've taken in years! My only complaints were that the wi-fi is extremely weak. Also, I wanted to mention that the VHS player had a tape stuck in it when we got there. It's been years since we've used one so we didn't try to get it out, haha! It's okay though. Thank you!!!

The property is well-cared with lots of personal touches such as books and movies. After driving 12 hours it was nice to come to a clean, comfortable home. The property was very dog friendly including a background yard that is fenced complete a grill and patio table and chairs. The shed with beach chairs and bikes was helpful because we did not need to buy anything and travel back with it. Overall, we were very satisfied.

We had a wonderful time at this precious little duplex with our friends and family. The owner provided so many wonderful little extras such as bicycles, beach gear and pet gates. The back yard was fenced for out precious pooches too! The public beach is 2 minutes away and is lovely. We also loved the close by fishing pier and arcade for the children. The kitchen had everything we needed for a Labor Day weekend cookout. We hope to return for a full week next year!

House was very clean and located a short walk from the beach and downtown area. Had plenty of room for the four of us and our dog. We enjoyed our visit there and may go back again.
