Unit 908 was beautiful. Probably one of the best decorated and most comfortable units we've stayed in. We love the Surf master and its clean beach. Easy access. Parking isn't great but works. One problem with night security, but it was worked out. was

I stated in unit 810 in 1012 with daughter and sil. It was one of the nicest places we have stayed. Loved the well equipped kitchen, and so happy to have a washer and dryer. I came back in 2013 with son and another daughter and 2 twin grandsons. They felt the same way about the nice place. Wanted it... More

We stayed here in 2011 in the first tower on the end, 601 maybe? Anyway, this was a well maintained and well appointed 3BR condo with a nice kitchen, dining area, living room, and beautiful ocean views from up high on the balcony. Garden City Realty handled the rental and were great to work with. Some people have posted saying... More

I would probably give this place a Very Good rating except for one thing. It is advertised as a strictly non-smoking property, which is important to me due to my sinus problems, plus what non-smoker wants to smell someone's smoke all the time. A couple in the room one floor down from us was smoking on their balcony all the... More

I could look past the torn wallpaper, the dirty living room couch. It was all about the view. When we stepped out onto the huge balcony with breath taking views we were shocked to find a missing railing. We were 10 floors up and the management thought it sufficient to tie a black trash bag to close the gap. We... More

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
