We absolutely loved our stay in SurfMaster By The Sea 609. The view was amazing and quiet. We visited the week before Memorial Day, and the beach in front of the SurfMaster had plenty of room! Both up the beach towards the Surfside Pier and down the beach towards the Garden City Pier appeared to be very busy most of... More

If you like the beach, Surfmaster has a terrific location - right on a gentle beach with warm water, few if any jellyfish, and usually gentle surf. Garden City is about eight miles south of Myrtle Beach and is on the same beach (locally called the Grand Strand) but is MUCH quieter than Myrtle. An easy walk to either Garden... More

We are in our mid 50's to mid 60's so look for a laid back Fall vacation. In 2007, we stayed in Unit 111 and was very comfortable. Loved the location as it felt you were right on the beach. The walls had water stains on them and could have been repainted. Could use some updating. However, the colors were... More

We stayed at the Surfmaster 1 "room 1206" and wasn't impressed at all. Upon our arrival the air conditioner wasn't working. It took about 4 hours for someone to come and fix it. It got up to 89 degrees and was miserable. Not something you want to deal with as soon as you get to your room. There were dirty... More

We stayed in Unit 106 at the Surfmaster. Since it was after tourist season, the rates were extremely reasonable. If you stay on the first floor (which feels like a second floor), as we did, you feel as if you are on the ocean. We chose not to walk out on the beach much of the time and just stayed... More

We really enjoyed our vacation at the Surfmaster. The condo was beautiful and very clean. The views were fantastic from our balcony. We could see the Garden City Pier and it had a nice view of the Garden City street side area also. My daughter, her husband and my Grandchildren went with my husband and I on our vacation and...

For the money this facility was marginal. The pool area had no space for walking and not much space for laying by the pool. The the hot tub was down and taped off and was not being worked on. Parking was ok. Good elevators. Hope you like staying up late, people shooting fireworks late, we were on the twelvth floor... More
