My family stayed in unit 807(3 bedroom) in Aug. 2010. I highly recommend this one. My 9 yr old loved it, as well as our teenage son who celebrated his 18th birthday there. The individually owned unit was wonderful, the unit was clean, had linens and towels provided, which were clean and wrapped in plasic. There is no maid or... More

We arrived on Sat. Aug 7th at the Surfmaster. Check in went smoothly. Went to Unit 111 and as we started to put away the groceries....The cabinets were so moldy smelling that I could not put any groceries in for fear of them being ruined. Cabinets were not clean inside, very poor selection of cook ware. The sliding glass doors... More

Nice location and great view. Property is nice. Condo is terrible. Air conditioning, if you can call it that, does not work well. Got up to 88 degrees in condo by afternoon. Appliances all very old. Fridge doesn't work well. Pur food spoiled. Trash on floors. Everything is stained. Bathrooms were dirty. Towels were dirty. Kitchen was disgusting. Ceiling flaking... More

First let me say that this is the first review I have every written but I felt compelled to do so because I don't want any other families to be fooled into thinking that what they paid for is what they are going to get. I stayed in Penthouse D and was thrilled to go on vacation with my husband,... More

The balcony and view from the Penthouse were amazing. The unit itself needed some work. Peeling paint, stained carpets and furniture and seriously outdated appliances made for a less than inviting first impression. Looks like the unit is about 25 years old and hasn't been redone since it was first built. The pool area is also quite small and gets... More

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
