We are Festiva members who paid with points. Converting the points required to dollars, we paid about $1200 for the week in high season. That is similar and lower than some of the condo's in the same building for rent online - a couple are asking $1800-1900. I liked the tile floor through out the unit. The carpet in the... More

This rented condominium is situated on the Garden City Beach. Two bedrooms, two baths, a pull-out couch in a large living room, a full kitchen, large balcony facing the beach, several ceiling fans, and three televisions truly made this a luxury lining place for the two days I was there. Reasonable pricing and ample parking also complimented my experience. These... More

We just got back from our vacation and was there for a week. We loved this place!!! You are literally on the beach and you can sit in your living room and just enjoy the view! Half the time we just left the balcony door open all day just to hear the waves and feel the nice breeze! The pool... More

We just got back from this facility and we had a wonderful time!!! It was VERY clean and as someone who works in property management, I was very appreciative of this. There was nary a piece of sand in the unit (#404 2bds/2baths) when we arrived, which was amazing considering how close this place is to the beach. It is... More

We stayed here through our time share points, two years ago. Then we stayed at our home resort last year and it was NOTHING in comparison. We had to walk to the pool and drive to the beach. So much for a home resort offering like no other! We loved this place. It was clean, cozy, great rooms but best... More

We ended up at the Sea Mystique last minute using our RCI points. We were told by RCI that the place was 4.5 stars out of 5. We booked without seeing it and paid our exchange point fee. When we arrived, the light fixture cover in the bathroom fell off, the drawer face in the master bathroom feel off, the... More

This place is the bomb. We totalaly enjoyed our stay. Garden City is not as busy as Mrytle Beach. Great view from balcony, great beach, close to pier and easy access to Rt 17. Room was in great shape has everything you need dishwasher, microwave, ice maker, washer & dyrer. Best part is getting up early for sunrise and walking... More

We knew we would be 'near' the beach and were delighted to find the balcony is almost over the beach. Not the newest building on the street (apparently its one of the few that survived hurricane Hugo some years back - photos in the pier shop) but it has been well looked after. Under cover parking and an elevator were... More

Located far enough away from large resort complexes, Sea Mystique invites you to enjoy the serenity of Garden City as you lounge on the secluded beach. If you have been looking for a way to relax and get away from it all, this is your answer. There are several quaint beach communities to explore nearby including Surfside Beach and Murrells Inlet, and the excitement of Myrtle Beach is just minutes away.
