We stayed in room 108. Can't beat the views. 3 walls of windows, a ginormous balcony, fully equipped kitchen. Our condo was 1500 sq ft and well worth the money. Garden city is by far the best beach around Myrtle. We also watched Dolphins play in the mornings.

For the money we could have done much better. We stayed on 10th floor and the elevator stayed broke. Come to find out it was broke all the week before. Two groups that I know of got trapped in elevator.

Recently stayed in 101 great views, very easy to watch children in the pool, very easy access to parking and only one flight of steps to pool and beach. Hot tub & pool area clean and very well maintained. Pool decks and chairs cleaned every morning. New paint new TV,s no more popcorn ceilings! Clean and crisp. The great thing... More

Wonderful location on the beach! Beautiful view from balcony. Railing is a little scary for young children and complex is a little dated which is why I gave 4/5. Office workers and staff are friendly. Would definitely recommend it and would come again.

We stayed at Surfmaster a few years ago and enjoyed it. Being empty-nesters, a 1-bedroom is just fine and in fact, the balconies have a better view and more breeze than any of the 2-bedrooms (some though not all of the 3-bedrooms have equal views and breeze). Bear in mind that the units are all independently owned so the decoration... More

We recently stayed in Penthouse L. Deck area was great! Just a few issues! Was given a wrong key and was locked out. The toilet in one of the bedrooms would not flush but someone did come and repair it. Door on freezer kept popping open. I would recommend not washing clothes if someone is sleeping, rinse cycle sounds like... More

Wife and I spent one week here, checking in on September 13, 2014. Rented the 1 BR, 1 1/2 bath unit, through Surfside Realty. The bedroom has a king size bed, tub/shower combo in the full bath, with 1/2 bath near the living area. Small but adequate kitchen area with all the necessary appliances, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, full size... More

We have stayed at One ocean place several times and Garden City Realty said that... More

We arrived in the late evening after a long day of travel. My family has rented the same unit for the past 2 or 3 years (unit 301). It was nice to settle in. The view in the morning was great! We had a enjoyable weekend. It was clean, well stocked with cooking supplies (pots, pans, utensils, ect) only thing... More

Stayed in same unit the past two years that I've gone with my family. So I can only speak for this unit. It has some updates to it (kitchen, flooring), but more can be done to update it and make it look nicer (furniture, TVs, bathrooms). The balcony was great. It's a decent unit to stay in considering I'm sort... More
