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 were awesome. Took some great photos. Besides the firecrackers every single night, it was basically pretty peaceful. Hopefully that noise would not happen all year round, and we realize that is to be expected on the 4th of July. We also realize we were visiting a state that legalizes fireworks-that's probably the biggest reason for all the firecrackers all week long. That was new to us.
Anyway, we appreciate having a place to have a memorable 4th of July holiday. Thanks to the owners and to Garden City Realty.

Room Tip: It was very nice not to have to bring linens. The beds were made and towel and hand cloths were adequate. If you plan on cooking mostly, I would bring some equipment you like to use. Pots and pans were adequate. Dinnerware was adequate, but I would bring plastic cups, plates and plastic utensils if you do not want to run the dishwasher after every meal. The air condition was great-no problems.

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 furniture to seat 8 people.

The only thing wrongs I found wrong was that the traffic areas of carpet could use cleaning, I would like to have had a mattress cover on the bed and glass furniture tops were not cleaned.

Owners should be proud of the condo they rent out!!

Room Tip: 904 is the best value for your money with great view of beach!

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 getting old and not comfortable, including beds. The carpets are not being kept shampooed or replaced as needed and and a lot of routine maintenance seems to be being neglected. I don't mind paying a decent rate for a nice clean comfortable unit but when staying a month, they are also not stocked for any cooking. Please fix up these great units. I do enjoying staying down here once a year for the month of April. And let us know if you are an owner are are interested in renting every year for April. Our email is skmfwm@yahoo.com. We prefer a 2 or 3 bedroom at SurfMaster or Once Ocean Place on the lower floors.

Room Tip: Check rooms for comfort of beds, kitchen supplies, Good Lighting, Ceiling fans, Adequate Linen, and condition of carpets and blinds. Many need repairs or replacing.

This was our 2nd year at Surfmaster & was just as good as 08/2010. Friendly staff that was quick to react to a couple of issues that we brought to their attention. Overall, unit 807, is about a 8 out of 10. Afterall, Surfmaster is over 20 years old and some deterioration is to be expected. Well furnished and comfortable.

One negative: BR with a double and single bed could use new mattresses and box springs. Daughter and SIL complained about them.
