Stayed in Unit 912 week of 8/2 - 8/9/2014. Upon arrival, realized that although I paid for the linen package, I would have to dress beds. The mattress covers are very old, have tears and could stand to be laundered or replaced entirely. The rooms are extremely small and the oversized furniture didn't help matters. What I thought was dirt... More

We had never visited the Myrtle Beach/Garden City area and took our two young children for a roadtrip during school vacation. This place is awesome. We all absolutely loved it. There is so much to do in such a short distance, both walking and driving. We took long strolls on the beach and collected many shells. We enjoyed Broadway on... More

We were travelling with several children and rented a two bedroom condo. We planned our vacation at the last minute during summer season. The place was not the worst of the options we had, but it sure could use some improvement. All condo's are beachfront, with a great view of the ocean. It has a pleasant deck with a large... More
