Please do not park cars or enter the rental until officially checked-in or provided with keys from the Rental Department. Inspectors and/or cleaners are not authorized to grant check-in permission to guests.
During the summer, pre-registered guests staying in properties with early check-in availability can take advantage of express check-in. Our Vacation Specialists will notify guests who can avoid the conventional 4 p.m. check-in time and begin their vacation early.
If you're arriving after business hours you will find your keys and directions to your rental property in our late arrival dropbox. Remember to return your signed Guest Rental Agreement on the next available business day.
Some situations can sometimes cause delayed check-ins. When this happens, Garden City Realty reserves the right to withhold keys from guests until the property has been deemed ready for occupancy. Contact the office in advance at 843-652-2555 for our hours (times vary per season) or to check if your rental is ready, if after 4 p.m.
Check-Out time is 10 a.m. We ask that you and your belongings are out of the rental property by 10 a.m. No late check-outs. Return keys to Garden City Realty no later than 10 a.m. on departure date. Guests who do not depart before 10 a.m. are subject to a late departure fee of no less than $150. If you depart before or after business hours, a key drop is available to the right of the front door at 608 Atlantic Avenue.
Remember that you don’t have to worry about cleaning the property before your departure, just complete the basics – place all dirty dishes in the dishwasher and start the clean cycle, remove all food from the refrigerator, freezer, and cabinets, separate the rented linens into two piles; one for sheets and pillowcases, the other for towels and washcloths, and lock all windows and doors, turn off lights. We will take care of the rest and ensure that the home is clean and sanitized. Have a safe trip home and we look forward to your next visit.
