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.

Guest ReviewsAvg. Rating:
We love Floyd cottage - we stay there as two families, each family sleeping in the two bedrooms either side of the central living / kitchen area. The large screened-in porch is a great place to relax any time of day. The ocean is a few steps away down a board walk and over the sand (which can be hot!) Location is great - you can walk or bike easily to a number of shops and cafes though you'll probably want to drive to the main grocery store or to the many restaurants on Highway 17.
The house itself and the furnishings are in good condition.
The only downside of Floyd Cottage is the place next door. They have a very noisy pool gate which the tenants love to let slam - you may want to take a tip from my book and put "Please close the gate quietly" notices on it - you can reach the gate from Floyd's yard. There is also an outside light that comes on at 10:20 every night and shines straight in the window of one of the bedrooms. I've spoken to Garden City Realty about it a number of times but nothing has been done about it. The bulbs are too far off the ground to remove without using a ladder.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Our vacation rental experience was great up until the last 2 days when they shut the beach down behind our house due to dredging. I really wish we would have been made aware of this prior to our reservation. We spent a lot of time saving money for this trip, to be ocean front and the last two days there, we couldn't use the beach. Had we known that was going to happen, we would have looked for a different place. We had 4 kids with us, ranging from 10 to newborn, which was the purpose of finding something oceanfront, so we didn't have to leave and drive to go to the beach. All and all the house was great, clean and the check in process was easy.
