Upon reading other people's negative reviews, I don't know what you are looking for. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here from May 18 to May 25. Our unit was clean and everything worked. Yes, it needs some updating but then so does my house. These units are used regularly and it seems that some people don't respect... More

This was our first time at Surfmaster 301 and it will be our last . The location is great , but this unit is a disaster and in need of a complete make over .When we checked in the kitchen was filthy and took a complete morning to clean. The rest of the day was spent cleaning the caked on... More

This is the fourth time we have managed to stay at #711 over the last 8 years in Garden City Beach. This has got to be one of the nicest and most well-kept condos on the Grand Strand. The owners have kept the furniture and appliances updated over the years. The decorations and all the little details have been kept... More

The seven of us went back to Surfmaster this year for two reasons: We love the place and, also, we love the place! Stayed in unit #114, this time and were fully satisfied with all the furnishings, including the kitchen supplies. The a/c even seemed to do a better job this year! Being able to park practically right outside your... More

Have been staying at Surfside Beach for 20+ years. There are better units out there for the same or less money. This unit was about 10 years past a much needed upgrade. Two out of three bathrooms had problems, all the kitchen supplies were cheap and worn out. Older TV's and equipment. They did come and work on the WIFI... More

I love the view and the rooms are nice! It is a great place to stay!!! It's a little creepy during the night but that doesn't even come to mind when you think of the advantage of being beach front! You would really love to stay here

Unit 304 was wonderful-spacious for 2 Bed. 2 Bath; nice kitchen (however needs to be "stocked" a little better), hot water was good, mattresses better than most rentals where we have stayed before, and the best balcony ever. Balcony in itself like any other, but the view was fabulous. It was definitely a "view with a condo." Sunsets and sunrises... More

I also stayed at Surfmaster, in condo 904 at the same time in June 2012 and I didn't noticed any new carpets in the halls, unless the person was talking about Surfmaster 1. We went with another couple and loved our condo, it was updated, and well stocked and our linens were included in the condo price. Had enough comfortable... More

Have stayed in units 904 and 511 at Surfmaster Garden City Very updated - cleanest condos I have ever stayed in. View is beautiful. If you look at virtual tours of unit 511 and 904 you will be very impressed.

This is my favorite condo complex on the South Strand but unfortunately, the units are not being kept up to par for the rental prices. My husband and I come down every year for the Month of April and it is becoming very difficult to find a nice clean up to date unit to enjoy. Much of the furniture is... More
