We had a fabulous time. The home was beautiful and so convenient to the beach. I love the way it was decorated. It made us feel completely at home. We have stayed in Garden City for many years. First time I have stayed oceanfront and this was the perfect place to have that first experience.- Anonymous from Sumter, Posted: 05/29/2023
We stayed in Driftwood the week after Hurricane Ian. The house itself had been spared of damage and was very clean. The yard was as clean as could be at the time. We had plenty of room and everything we needed in this house. If there is anything I would've changed it would be the thermostat. The house was hot at 73 and the rule was not to change the thermostat from 73. But over all, we had a great time staying in this beautiful house.
The people at Garden City realty were exceptional. We will be back! Thank you to Cathy, Pam, Bob and Jackie.- Rhonda V. from Columbia, Posted: 10/10/2022
Once again, we had a great vacation in our home rental from Garden City Realty. The home is perfect for my family. We look forward to staying in Myrtle Beach each year and having a place for all of us makes it even more special.- Debbie M. from Rome, Posted: 10/05/2022
Driftwood was fantastic. Spacious, beautifully furnished, very clean and a view from the deck to die for. The only critique I have, and it is very minor, is the TVs in the bedroom are very small and the kitchen cabinets are not organized at all. There is no room for food in the cabinets because of the poor organization. We used the small plastic shelves in the laundry to store our food items.The kitchen was equipped great, it just needs to be organized! The 3 refrigerators were awesome and the icemaker was great. Loved the pool, the rocking chairs on the deck and the nice grill. I have already booked for next year. I'm praying that Hurricane Ian didn't damage this beautiful beach house.- Terri B. from Canton, Posted: 10/01/2022
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful property! The only complaint was the mattresses on the bunk beds were very thin and uncomfortable! Otherwise it was perfect for what our family needed! We would recommend this property to anyone!- Anonymous from Lancaster, Posted: 07/19/2022
The home was a great home for a family. The house having 5 1/2 bathrooms was a big plus, location was wonderful and having the pool was great. We had a great time. Also a second refrigerator in the laundry room was so helpful. We have a blast.

This was the nicest and cleanest home we have ever rented. The house was ready for us hours before our scheduled arrvial time. This ocean front home had a Beautiful location and was a short distance to the beach. We look forward to staying here again!- Tom T. from Greenfield, Posted: 09/27/2021
This is our 2nd year renting this property. We absolutely love it! Each bedroom has it's own bathroom, and the pool is fantastic. We have already booked for next year.- Kristine V. from Ft Myers, Posted: 09/06/2021
Once of the best rentals I have ever stayed in ever!!- Chris S. from Macomb, Posted: 08/30/2021
Our family had an amazing vacation week at Driftwood! This is our second stay at this beach house and plan to return on our next family gathering in a few years! We love the direct access to the beach and really enjoy the pool!- Carrie M. from Purcellville, Posted: 08/02/2021
Great relaxing vacation. Home in great condition and beautifully decorated as well as very clean. Would consider this property again.- Pat S. from Rome, Posted: 10/22/2020
Took my entire family to Garden City Beach for a our 2020 summer family vacation. There were 11 of us and we stayed at the Drift Wood House. We had more than enough room and the property was well maintained. This was our second vacation to
Garden City and the second time I rented this same property. We had our own private pool which the kids loved.I would definitely recommend this property to others. We had a great time and like doing business with Garden City Realty. It's a great location and we do plan on a return trip.- Clyde S. from Lenior, Posted: 10/17/2020
This was a beautiful home with a great pool and in a great location. We enjoyed the easy walk to the beach and the extra refrigerators were great! If we had to change anything...there weren’t a lot of blankets and the pillows on the beds were awful. We all went out and bought new ones. The vent registers in the bedroom are in a really odd location and we had to put paper over them during our stay so it wasn’t blowing cold air directly on the kids (and us). We booked again for next year and can’t wait to be back!- Anonymous from Jeannette, Posted: 10/01/2020
Great house. We'll be back.- Kathryn K. from Charlotte, Posted: 07/21/2020
Our extended family of 12 couldn't have been happier with this beautiful home! It suited us perfectly and had everything we needed and more. The beach was so private here we were never crowded. Can't imagine a nicer vacation!!- Lynn A. from Lilburn, Posted: 06/16/2020
Everything went smoothly from reservation to checkout. House was beautiful and well equipped.- Kimberly C. from Johns Island, Posted: 12/16/2019
We’ve always stayed in a condo and this was the first time staying in a home. There is no going back! This home was well appointed with everything you could possibly need. The beds were comfortable (the twins beds were not quite as comfortable), The pool and hot tub were an added bonus. It was bike week, so it was a little noisy but we expected that. The kitchen could have been better organized but had everything we needed.- Debbie M. from Rome, Posted: 10/07/2019
IWe love that house We will stay again and again!! It was perfect house.- Michong V. from Proctorville, Posted: 09/28/2019
Excellent- Richard B. from Surfside Beach, Posted: 09/09/2019
First the house was great overall! A couple things that could be better: get rid of coffee table and put big ottoman there, 2 rockers on porch had arms that were broken, washing machines spin cycle on first washing doesn’t work you had to do the second spin to get clothes spun dry. We would definitely come back- Loren H. from Red Lion, Posted: 08/19/2019
This was the most incredible home we have ever stayed in for a family vacation. After the first day we all decided we would be booking this home again for next year. Sitting on the back porch looking at the ocean was a highlight for everyone. From ages 1-60 everyone in our group loved this home and we are looking forward staying for years to come.- Allison H. from Lexington, Posted: 08/13/2019
This was a wonderful family vacation. The house was BEAUTIFUL and we easily accommodated 13 people. The kitchen was stocked perfectly and having 3 refrigerators was great, especially since several family members have dietary restrictions! We hope to stay here again in two years.- Anonymous from New Florence, Posted: 08/09/2019
The house was great, very well decorated. Beautiful view. The pool was great. On the down side, the dishwasher was not working when we checked in, was repaired on Thursday afternoon.- DONNA W. from Williamsburg, Posted: 07/24/2019
It was the perfect place for my famalies vacation. Clean very modern decorated. Everything was perfect we loved it.- Teresa G. from Belmont, Posted: 07/08/2019
We love this house! We have been doing our annual family vacation in Myrtle Beach for 18 years. We are hoping that we can do the ones to come at this house! It had more than we have had in previous houses. We loved the two refrigerators and the mini bar with an ice machine. Everything was very well kept and beautiful.
Everyone I spoke with at Garden City Realty was very sweet and informative. I really appreciated their customer service to making check-in and out very easy.- Judy S. from Winter Garden, Posted: 06/26/2019
Garden City realty was so easy to work with, will definitely use them again- Dawn M. from Girard, Posted: 05/27/2019
Great home for our family spring break vacation. Home is beautiful and had everything we needed. Weather could have been warmer, but it is April. Two suggestions: bathroom on ground level for use at pool and for the price of linens and towels, I would think sheets could be put on the beds.- Janice S. from Shenandoah Junction, Posted: 04/22/2019Thanks for your review, Janice. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. Yes, making the beds prior to arrival is an option this property owner offers guests! Just indicate this preference in the special request field during checkout. We?re glad you had a great spring vacation and can?t wait to see you again!- Garden City Realty staff
We really enjoyed our week. It was chilly and the hot tub/pool saved the week for the kids. The home is clean, comfortable and each bedroom having a bathroom is well worth it! Thanks for sharing your home!- Jen C. from Alpharetta, Posted: 04/22/2019
We really enjoyed our vacation stay at Driftwood. We were a large family group and spent the week of Thanksgiving in Garden City. The kitchen in Driftwood was very well stocked--we were able to prepare a huge traditional Thanksgiving meal. I don't think there was a utensil we needed that wasn't there. The extra refrigerator sure came in handy too. The house was beautifully decorated, very clean, lots of bathrooms for everyone, extra blankets for the chilly nights, and enough TVs to allow TV watching as well as video game playing. Everything was just as pictured. We fell in love with that huge hot tub, and had no problem keeping it warm. While the weather in November was cool, as you would expect, the heated pool even allowed us to swim a couple of bright sunny days. And those rockers!! Sunrise and mornings on that deck, in those rockers, and that view, just spectacular! Some of our group preferred the close proximity of all the options at Myrtle Beach and Broadway at the Beach while others enjoyed the quieter waterfront restaurants at Murrell's Inlet. We also visited Brookgreen Gardens which were absolutely beautiful. Overall, a really great beach vacation at a time we don't usually go to the beach. We definitely recommended Driftwood and Garden City Realty.- Cathy W. from Lumbeport, Posted: 11/27/2018
Beautiful beach home! Lots of fine amenities! Lovely decor, clean, spacious. Great pool and hot tub! Right on the beach! Only issue was that it was biker week and the house sits on a busy road. It was very noisy and we will make sure we do not go during that week again! Otherwise it was Great!!- Gayle K. from Roanoke, Posted: 10/08/2018
My family and I have stayed in the Garden City location for 29 years in a row. We have stayed in multiple house with multiple realtors. Our stay was one of if not the best experience to date. This was our first stay at Driftwood and the location, cleanliness, accommodations and variety of amenities were awesome! We had a few minor SNAFU's but they were handled immediately with total satisfaction. We would recommend this rental exclusively! We will certainly be back. The only complaint was the main floor bedroom with the two single beds were very uncomfortable with very thin mattresses.- Donald M. from Lorain, Posted: 08/14/2018
Driftwood met all our expectations. The decor was very beachy but tasteful and not overdone. Two full refrigerators plus a wet bar with ice maker was so helpful. Great big flat screen TVs. Six adults and six kids ages 13-18 had plenty of sleeping and living space. Location was great - we were able to bypass most of Ocean Blvd (and golf carts!) and take back roads to Atlantic Ave and the main highway. The hot tub never did heat up, although the jets worked. It didn’t really matter to us, the pool and beach were our main interests. Very nice wide beach here. Great vacation!- Anonymous from Pittsburgh, Posted: 08/10/2018
We had an amazing time at the Driftwood in Garden City, SC
We arrived on Saturday around 4:30 pm. Check in went very well!
House was ready and the staff at Gardrn City Reality knew what they where doing. It was a very busy time for them with many families checking in. It took only about 10 minutes.- Michael & Bonnie L. from HIxson, Posted: 07/23/2018
It was an awesome house but guest are monitored by neighbors to ensure nothing happens to house, property, or to ensure rules are not broken. Family member who has pet brought pet to house and enter one side and exited to the beach. This was report to realty company and 2 men came to house to investigate without any pets noted. Family came again with me calling realty company to ensure we were not reported again because house has public beach access on side house.- William W. from Kernersville, Posted: 07/16/2018We regret to hear there was a misunderstanding with our rental agreement regarding dogs at Driftwood. Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted in the home or on the grounds by guests or visitors. As stated in the property description and rental agreement, this home is not a dog-friendly property. We do, however, have a variety of dog-friendly homes available should you decide to rent with us again in the future. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and look forward to seeing you again next year.- Garden City Realty staff
Our family enjoyed a wonderful week in Murrells Inlet, SC. The rental property could not have been more perfect. The house is beautiful, clean, and very updated. The staff at Garden City Realty is friendly and very knowledgeable of the properties they manage. We have worked with them in the past and will do so in the future.- Anonymous from Lexington, Posted: 06/18/2018
This home is beautifully decorated and stocked with just about everything you could possibly need. House needs an ice-cream scoop, muffin pan, liquid and teaspoon measures added to be perfect. The grill is very nice. Having a bathroom for each bedroom was great. The view is perfect - and the beach in front of our rental was not crowded, we had it to ourselves almost exclusively. A few things to know: The bunk room upstairs and the twin bedroom downstairs stay warm, even at night. There are many beach regulations, and you can not put up a canopy on the beach, and may only use single umbrellas which are, of course, difficult. We enjoyed our family time there.- Anonymous from Wilmore, Posted: 06/16/2018Thank you for taking the time to send in a review on your recent stay at Driftwood. It's reviews like yours that make us better. I am please to inform you that an ice-cream scoop, muffin pan, liquid and teaspoon measures have been added to the kitchen selection. We look forward to having you back in the future.- Garden City Realty staff
Fantastic overall. The hot tub was not the easiest to operate or to get it to temperature. Great location!!- John H. from Trumbull, Posted: 10/20/2017
We had plenty for everyone in our family, well stocked kitchen. Rental company responded immediately to a minor repair to the ice maker at the wet bar.- Dianne T. from Charlotte, Posted: 09/04/2017
We took our children and grandchildren as we have done for the last 10 years. We enjoyed the pool, using the grill and gathering on the porch. The inside was so beautifully decorated and roomy.- Anonymous from Woodruff, Posted: 08/14/2017
This home was very nice! Very up to date colors of paint and furniture. Clean, well laid out foloorplan, awesome hot tube and pool, great location!!- Mark L. from Woodruff, Posted: 08/07/2017
This was the first time we have been to Garden City & we absolutely fell in love with it! The location of Driftwood is perfect also! The house is located far enough away from the public access parking lots that the beach was not crowded at all! There is a small path beside the house that is a public access, but it was really only used by the houses that were immediately across the road. I like that this house is VERY close to all the yummy restaurants at Murrell's Inlet & only about 20 min from Broadway at the Beach, but the beach feels more like a smaller/less crowded beach.
The property was exactly as described. It looked practically brand new inside! The pool/hot tub was very nice to have for when the kids got tired of the beach. We also LOVED the grilling/patio area. We were able to set up our corn hole boards & would play at night while grilling or after dinner. The only issue we had was that the property was not ready when we arrived at 4:45PM. We waited for probably 20-30 min while the Realty staff tried to get in touch with the house keeping staff. They finally gave us the keys & we were able to go & get in, but the cleaners were still there for probably another 45 min. Not a huge deal & the staff at Garden City Realty was SO NICE, but original contract said check-in was at 4PM.
We rented a golf cart for 5 days. The kids loved us giving them a ride down to the arcade/marina/etc. They loved the little snow cone stand....we went there several times. We ate out several times while we were there. Our favorites were The Grilled Cheese & Crab Cake Co, The Wicked Tuna, & Dead Dog Saloon. We also ate at Hamburger Joe's one night. If you are looking for a good burger & fries for a reasonable price, we highly recommend. Their wings were really good too AND they have $1 PBR Drafts....you can't beat that! :-) One more restaurant shout out....Milardo's Pizza was REALLY Good!!
We would highly recommend Driftwood & Garden City for your ne- Sabrina P. from Apex, Posted: 08/07/2017
