Flat screen TV (cable), DVD player, telephone, and Wi-Fi are also provided. Sleeping accommodations include two queen and two twin-sized beds, plus two day beds (one has a pullout trundle bed). Bedroom one has a private bath and the next two bedrooms share a bathroom. No Smoking. No pets. Check-out maid service included. Linens not included.

Conveniently located close to some of the best area attractions, Garden City Beach is directly south of Surfside Beach and ends on a peninsula at the mouth of Murrells Inlet. One of the most renowned attractions in Garden City Beach is the Pier at Garden City. Other attractions include Marlin Quay Marina, Gulf Stream Cafe, Original Sam's Corner, and Sara J's Seafood Restaurant.

Just south of Garden City Beach is Murrells Inlet, a seaside community that is considered to be the "Seafood Capital of South Carolina", but is also home to some of the nation's best golf courses. Once primarily a fishing village, the town is best known for the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk, a half-mile long boardwalk overlooking a pristine salt marsh, and the many award-winning seafood and barbecue restaurants along Highway 17 Business in the central business district.

Brookgreen Gardens, a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve built on four former rice plantations, is located slightly south of Murrells Inlet. It features several themed gardens with American figurative sculptures placed in them, trails through several nature reserve ecosystems and the Lowcountry Zoo.

If you're looking for places to shop, Inlet Square Mall, The Market Common, Coastal Grand, Myrtle Beach Mall, Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, two Tanger shopping outlets, countless strip-malls, and many more shopping facilities are all within an easy drive from Garden City Beach. Looking for some entertainment, take in a show at Alabama Theater, Medieval Times, The Carolina Opry, Pirates Voyage, and Legends in Concert. And don't forget about Ripley's Aquarium, Alligator Adventure, Hard Rock Cafe, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, and The Pavilion Nostalgia Park.

Other points of interest close by include the waterfront community of Georgetown, the third oldest city in South Carolina and second largest seaport in South Carolina, and historic Conway with its downtown Riverwalk area nestled on the banks of the Waccamaw River. Both towns include fine dining, shopping, and historic sites.

Surfside Beach, Garden City Beach and Murrells Inlet are all close to Waccamaw Hospital and several urgent care facilities.

Whatever your desire, whatever your need, the south strand offers a little something on everyone's to-do list. We have a variety of restaurants, retail stores, miniature golf, entertainment venues, charter fishing, water sports... and of course, nothing but relaxation.

Vacation stay, September 2017, at the Big Balloon.

Charles C. from Winston Salem, NC recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Sep, 2017
This was our first time staying at the Big Balloon. There was only 4 of us and there was plenty of room. The house was very clean which was a big plus for us. Even though the house was not on Waccamaw Drive ( beach road) , it did have a good view of the beach from the porch. We were less then 200' from the beach and beach access was very easy. The kitchen had everything that we needed, beds were comfortable as was the living room furniture. The only drawbacks were minor, another tv would be nice along with a hose at the spigot. Overall a great week and a good rental.

the house was great. a couple of more TV's would have been nice. It was clean except I found dog hair on the furniture and rugs. But I am a pet owner so it didn't bother me.
The house is in a great location an easy walk to the beach. Loved the front porch!

Big Balloon Review Aug. 2015

Lynda M. from Riva, MD recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2015
Over all the house and our stay was very good. AC was cold, always had plenty of hot water and location was wonderful. I would suggest the owners fix the side entrance door as it is stuck shut and would not open. Not good in an emergency. Also a few more chairs on the front porch would be nice as the three provided was not enough for the 6 of us who stayed there. They might also want to add a cheap outside grill. Other than that all was good.
