Stayed in Unit111. Don't waste your money. Unit was uncomfortably hot and the smell of mold in kithchen cabinets made them unusable. Hot tub is located right off the balcony and was occupied by pre-teen children all week. No one else could have used it because they were in there 6 hours at a time. At one point they had... More

The spacious balcony with private hot tub is all we needed! Hottub had great jets, built in radio. Each morning I would recline on the balcony overlooking the ocean waves with coffee and a book. Each evening I enjoyed a glass of wine in the hottub with ocean breezes blowing overhead. The large Mater bath vanity was great with long... More

Great location but unit was in poor condition & dirty. Unit 403, would not based on the price. Peeling & cracked paint, rusty fridge door, broken towel bar in bathroom. Common areas in poor condition & dirty. Do not rent 403 for list price or you too will be sad.

I traveled with my husband, mother, stepfather, sister and brother-in-law to Garden City/Myrtle Beach, SC last week. We stayed for seven nights in Penthouse C at Surfmaster condos. When we first arrived and made our way to the office to check in and get our keys we were all a bit concerned. There was trash in the halls (outer facing... More

Like other reviews, location great, condo needs help. Stayed in penthouse J. Hot tub not working, also not working week before. Response to get it fixed was non existent. My wife cleaned mold coming down from air ducts and fans. After complaining about it several times, my wife was told " it is in our policy that none of the... More

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

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
