Our family vacation was great!
- Anonymous from Anderson, Posted: 08/01/2022
This house was good for us since one of our family is mobility challenged and on a walker. The ramp up was good, and the bars in the master bath were great. However, I do not understand the owner’s choice to make a big tub in that bath along with a tiny and very slippery shower with no bars instead of a walk in shower. Adequate kitchen, but not the large gourmet updates we have encountered at this price point in other houses. Cabinets a bit worn, rickety, and limited in storage.
The book in the house needs updating. We spent days trying to figure out the instructions for heating the pool just to learn that that no longer is an option. Bummer because pool is in the shade all day and very chilly.
Overall, however, the house is great with good bedrooms and many bathrooms and a beautiful beachfront location and a dock which was a huge plus for our family. Very well supplied with equipment, especially for babies.
We will return.

Mrs. Mims - thank you so much for the feedback you have provided! We are glad to hear that Flying Geese was a good fit for your family. Also, we do apologize that the pool is not heated from June - August. This is common in our area as most guests find that pools are very warm during this time period. We will certainly take your feedback into consideration as we prepare for the next vacation rental season. Can't wait to see you back again next year!

We loved staying at the Flying Geese home. It was well appointed and very comfortable. There are plenty of spaces for “together time”, but also spots for quiet moments. The location is absolutely perfect! The boat dock is an extra nice addition to the home. We rented a boat for the week.
We had a fantastic vacation!

I would like to say that we had a terrible time,and that it was all your fault but... that would not be true, we had a great time. hope the truth does not make the house hard to get next time. The kids and the kids at heart had a great time at the Rocks and the house holds a lot of charm and John story about the Joggling board was neat, it still looks black to me,and again thanks for the donuts, hope to have them again next time.

We loved staying in this location. The house was perfect for our group. The house manager was attentive and so kind to check in on us during the stay. The home was very well cared for and maintained. Property was very clean. Customer service was awesome and we would definitely stay here again!

It was wonderful!
- Matthew T. from Asheboro, Posted: 09/21/2021
Flying Geese was beach vacation perfection. The location, the amenities, the house configuration, the maintenance and upkeep, everything was amazing. And the property manager, John Reed, was so helpful. Our family had an amazing vacation and can’t wait to return.
- Amy C. from Dunkirk, Posted: 09/13/2021
Had a great vacation. Love the house. Property and house are very well kept. Perfect size for family and friends. The caretaker of the house does a wonderful job and is so nice. We will definitely be back next year.
- Stacy C. from Montoursville, Posted: 08/02/2021
Our family reunion was incredible. The Flying Geese offered our grandchildren everything imaginable. The house had putt putt golf, a basketball hoop, plenty of driveway to ride their new scooters, and a step a way from the beach. The house was large enough to offer privacy as well as areas for family meals and activities. We were grateful for the two refrigerators. There is an amazing caretaker who checked with us during the vacation and answered all of our questions. We have already booked The Flying Geese for next year. Don't miss this gem.
- Charlene R. from Delaware, Posted: 06/07/2021
We come to this area every year. This was the best house for our families. Lots for the kiddos to do, relaxing for the adults, just wish there was an option for the four legged friends. Thank you! We will be staying here every year.

I really can't say enough nice things about this house. We originally booked another house which became unavailable, due to unforeseen circumstances the week before we were supposed to arrive, so we upgraded to this house. After we arrived it seemed as though we had received a blessing. We packed everything we normally do such as games, puzzles, sand toys, etc. it turned out all we really needed to bring was ourselves, clothes and toiletries. We did not have any children in our group of 6 but this house is set up to accommodate all ages! Tons of games and puzzles for indoor and outdoor play for all ages, even beach toys. We mostly ate dinner out every evening at our favorite restaurants but we did use the kitchen for breakfast and lunch and it is fully equipped with everything you could possible need. This particular house also has a very attentive caretaker named John that made sure we had everything we needed to make sure our stay was pleasant and he even brought us donuts our first morning. We really enjoyed our stay here and won't hesitate to stay here again, if it is available.
- Anthony C. from Williamston, Posted: 05/24/2021
We had the most amazing family vacation - ages 81 to 1. The house was perfect - many bedrooms and bathrooms, great ADA ramp, awesome location and neighborhood, very clean, great furnishings, fun pool and amenities. John - the housekeeper is awesome! Semper Fi. We will most definitely return to the house. Thank you so much for the memories!
- Debbie M. from Powder Springs, Posted: 04/20/2021
This house and location are fabulous. The ocean was so close we felt like we were on a cruise ship. Four generations enjoyed all the amenities, games, and activities offered in what felt like our own paradise. Thank you to Garden City and John, the caretaker who made us feel most welcome. We would definitely like to return to the Flying Geese!
- Tracey C. from Lynchburg, Posted: 10/19/2020
Flying Geese was even better than we expected. The location is so close to the ocean and so well furnished. Our family enjoyed the pool, hot tub, the huge screened-in porch and being so near the water. We would love to stay here again!

We have been vacationing in the area for over 15 years and never found the house that was perfect in our eyes. Last year we found this house and our search is over! John, the property manager is extremely kind and helpful. The kids especially enjoyed the fresh donuts he brought by! The house has comfortable beds, 2 fridges and dishwashers which is great and pretty well stocked in the kitchen. Everything is clean and the setup of the house is perfect for a large group. Our favorite areas were the hot tub and screened in porch. We also love playing carpet ball and the various puzzles and games in the home. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!
- Danielle B. from Bridgewater, Posted: 10/02/2020
One of the best places we have ever stayed!
- Anonymous from La Porte, Posted: 07/23/2020
It was amazing!! The house is beautiful and the location and views are unbeatable. John, who takes care of the property, was very friendly and took care of all our questions. I would highly recommend staying at the Flying Geese and using Garden City Realty.
- Tracy L. from South Charleston, Posted: 12/03/2019
Great House..Fabulous screen in porch with lots of rockers.. Pool and hot tub a great hit for the 5 couples staying there. Loved
The Flying Geese.. highly recommend.
- Connie M. from Seneca, Posted: 10/07/2019
The Flying Geese is an amazing house which made our vacation one to be remembered. Our family had a wonderful time and so enjoyed meeting the caretaker “John”. John was so sweet, helpful with questions stopped by on different occasions just to make sure everything was ok. Garden City Reality was so simple to check in and out. Highly recommend this house and Garden City Reality.
- Cindy S. from West Union, Posted: 08/07/2019
Good House. Well maintained. Wood floors enable a lot of background noise.. Disappointed that we had beach nourishment for two days.. We paid premium for beachfront that was not available for two days,
- Clyde C. from Kingwood, Posted: 08/05/2019
2nd time at the Flying Geese was better than the first. great family reunion
- James K. from Johns Creek, Posted: 07/15/2019
Loved this house and the views from the screened in porch! A very comfortable place to relax and unwind.
The day we checked in, the caretaker (John) came by and introduced himself and made sure we had his contact information in case we needed him. We had to call him on Thursday because the oven stopped working. He got in touch with the owners who ended up replacing it on Saturday! What great service!!
- Richard K. from Haymarket, Posted: 10/08/2018
This is our second year of renting this house. It works well for our family.
- Carla B. from Chattanooga, Posted: 06/25/2018
This place was great for our family of eight adults and one child under age two. Greatly appreciated the crib and the high chair! There was also a pack n play, booster seat, and another crib and high chair for your use. There were pool toys, rafts, board games, cards and cornhole. Our houseful of former athletes loved the basketball and hoop.
The kitchen was one of the best equipped kitchens we have come across and we have been coming to Myrtle for thirty years. We like to cook in , we enjoy having the family around the dinner table and this house does it right. Plenty of pots, pans, dishes, silverware, etc. Love the large table and plenty of space to get around it.
The pool area is beautiful. Plenty of room here also. Great for adults. Great for kids. Lounge chairs for everyone.
I hate when I go to a nice lg. beach house and there is limited porch furniture. Not the case at the Flying Geese. Very relaxing porches.
Beds were comfortable (not always the case in houses we’ve rented before), living room furniture comfortable and enough for our large family. Everything was very, very clean.
John, the caretaker (yes, there is a caretaker, such a plus) was so nice and helpful. He was very friendly and took care of a few things for us.
Only complaint, and it’s really not a complaint, is that some bathrooms are a little tight.
I would definitely rent this house again. We like the quietness of the inlet. If you are looking for activity and people watching, inlet harbor is not for you. Our family absolutely loves it.
- Denise L. from Belmont, Posted: 06/03/2018
We had the absolute best time at the Flying Geese! The kids always had something to do to keep them occupied. The bunk room was huge and the kids loved having dance parties. With the Children entertained, the adults were actually able to enjoy all The Flying Geese had to offer. The stunning views, the large porch and just good ole fashion chit chat. The heated salt water pool was amazing for spring break because the weather was often chilly. The children also enjoyed the large driveway where they rode scooters when they weren’t having dance parties or swimming. The owners and caretaker were wonderful as well. They made sure we had everything we needed and more. We feel like we found a gem and can’t wait to go back next year to make more memories!
- Delaine & Douglas G. from Roebuck, Posted: 04/23/2018
Fantastic Beach Cottage! Owners thought of everything. Would like a gas grill. Otherwise all you need is your toothbrush! A true gem.
- Mary B. from South Prince George, Posted: 08/28/2017
This is a perfect house for our family. It is set up so well for kids, with lots of on site activities for them to enjoy. We look forward to returning next year.
- Carla B. from Chattanooga, Posted: 06/12/2017
Awesome! Loved the house and location. It's a long way(3.3 miles) from the Garden City Pier but we practically had the beach to ourselves. If you like more action, then you might not like it but we loved the peacefullness of this quiet gated community. The house was amazing, clean and spacious. We had 12 people and had plenty of room. It was so nice to have the 2 refridgerators as we had multiple families and it made it less confusing. The view from the living room, screened porch and the decks was wonderful. The pool area was the best we have had. My grandaughter was in that pool 24/7 and the teens and twenties loved the lounges around the pool. Their was plenty of lounges and extra plastic adirondack chairs which could also be used at the beach. The spa(hot tub) was also enjoyed by the adults most afternoons and evenings. Also loved the supply of board games, puzzles and outdoor games and pool and beach toys. The basketball hoop was used most evenings and it was nice to have corn-hole to play on the beach.
- Melinda S. from Spencerport, Posted: 04/25/2017
I was in charge of finding a rental property for our April 8-15, 2017 vacation. Three families stayed at Flying Geese, and there isn't one thing we could've asked for to make our vacation better! The house is beautiful and was able to easily accommodate all of our friends and family...ranging in age from 16 - 85! One of my favorite features was a dining room table large enough to seat all of us! The location offers privacy but is easily accessible to restaurants, activities, and entertainment!
- Beth O. from Jamestown, Posted: 04/24/2017
This was a wonderful vacation experience for our family of 11. Spacious living space, great pools for the kids and a beautiful beach steps from our back porch. A bit off the beaten path in Garden Beach, but worth the commute. We'll definately be back next year!
- Robert F. from Whiting, Posted: 09/06/2016
Our family loves this house!
- Janet A. from Gastonia, Posted: 08/30/2016
Very nice beach home with an exceptional family atmosphere. The home is in a great location if you enjoy moderate privacy on the beach but in close proximity to the 'action' of Myrtle Beach. I would recommend this home for large families or for a couple of families that want to share a home. The Garden City Realty team was exceptional to deal with and had everything in order. We had no issues whatsoever and I recommend Garden City Realty for your vacation planning.
- Dwayne D. , Posted: 07/05/2016
We loved Flying Geese. We have been going to Myrtle Beach annually for about 45 years with our family - only missing 2-3 years. We have stayed in Garden City for the past 8-10 years. This is the first time we have traveled on holiday week, but were surprised to find it low key! The Flying Geese exceeded our expectations. We loved the layout....the only 2 negatives we found (and they are VERY minor) was the bathroom downstairs was not in the bedroom and the other thing that would be good is in the linen package there were only 2 pillowcases (the king beds have 3 pillows on each bed). The thing we enjoyed the most was the screened in porch!!! It was a well kept unit, loved the "country type" theme of the house.....the long wooden table was heavenly. Our family said it was the best rental we've ever had!!! Loved it! Kudos to the owners for the forethought of what is needed in the way of décor and supplies!
- Jennifer B. from Christiansburg, Posted: 06/06/2016
Was not the best weather week but the screened back porch made us feel like we were on the beach even when it rained. Perfect place for two sisters and their families to get tgether and enjoy their grandchildren.
- Anonymous from Yorktown, Posted: 10/05/2015
Loved the house and the great table - we sat around whenever we were not at the pool. Beach is real close, Shade at the pool is great.
Kitchen comfortable to work in. Two refrigerators and two dishwashers were essential.
- Claudia V. from Atlanta, Posted: 08/17/2015
In Flying Geese, days were flying fast between times on the excluded beach front during day time and night time, a clean and warm swimming pool and hot tub, and quite and clean environment t inside the house. We wished to stay longer, but ....

I really don't know of anything that could have made it better!
- Blanton W. from Goose Creek, Posted: 06/08/2015
Great home for family vacation. It had everything we needed. Very spacious and comfortable. A little awkward getting to pool and beach.
- Lori B. from Salem, Posted: 06/06/2015
Great location and great beach house. Plenty of room for everyone. Two dishwashers and refrigerators were good. Another oven would have been helpful to our large family. A couple of screens were out on the porch but no problem in the cool weather.
- Rhonda or Sam D. from Winston-Salem, Posted: 12/02/2014
The Flying Geese was the perfect place for my family. The place had every thing you need to enjoy your stay. I don't know who had the most fun--the adults or the kids. We can't wait to stay again. Wish we were there now.
- Judy L. from Hartsville, Posted: 08/25/2014
This house is nearly perfect. Would be better with more king or queen beds but plenty of space.
- Jason V. from Eastlake, Posted: 07/08/2014
This was an awesome cottage for the young & old. We came together to celebrate my mom's 90th B-day & it was perfect! Fun games there for the young & my mom who couldn't make it to walk on the beach ~ it was right there! The pool & hot tub was enjoyed by all!
- Lucinda A. from Banner Elk, Posted: 06/23/2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Flying Geese. In addition to a great location and plenty of parking, this house literally has everything you need for a great vacation for large group. Plenty of seating for living/dining room, the kitchen was well stocked so no need to bring anything from home, the porch was huge and fantastic for relaxing or running off steam. We just hope it will be around long enough for us to enjoy for many years in the future.
- Anonymous from Marietta, Posted: 06/23/2014
overall experience was very good.The only reason 5 stars was not given was because we were not told about the damage to the patio by the pool as well as the stairs leading to the beach and the inside was not cleaned as thoroughly as our past stay at the Flying Geese.We have already planned our family vacation here for next year
- Kevin M. from Manalapan, Posted: 05/27/2014
Have stayed in this cottage a number of years and have been very satisfied in every respect
- Camille A. from Richmond, Posted: 07/23/2013
I was hoping this would be the house we stay in year after year, but with the damaged houses around this one and the erosion all the way to the pool area, I'm wondering if the property will still be there next year:) Otherwise, best vacation property yet!

Four generations of my family recently vacationed at the Flying Geese in Garden City and we found it to be the perfect house and location for everyone. From the huge screened front porch overlooking the Atlantic to the Inlet Harbor community that was perfect for exploring on foot and kayak, we all agreed that we never wanted to leave. The gorgeous pool, kiddie pool, and hot tub along with private bathrooms with each bedroom made our stay very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the well stocked games available along with the corn husk boards and the carpetball table. As first time visitors to Garden City, we can't say enough wonderful things about the area. It has all the amenities of Myrtle Beach with a more relaxed beach and community atmosphere. Jill, at Garden City Realty, was fabulous and worked so well with us throughout the whole rental process. Any questions we had were answered very quickly and she phoned upon our arrival to make sure everything was in order. My family would highly recommend the Flying Geese to any and everyone. If only we could live at the beach forever!!!

This was the 2nd time we stayed at this house and it was as great as the first time.
- Catherine Z. from West Mifflin, Posted: 09/17/2012
We have stayed in Garden City for 25+ year with our children and now our grandchildren. This is our 3rd year at Flying Geese and it has everything that we need and then some. The pool and hot tub are essential for nonbeach days and relaxing after the beach. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. LOVE IT!

We had five generations at the Flying Geese in July and everyone had a wonderful time. The ramp enabled my grandmother to reach the main floor and the pool area with a wheel chair. The beach is so close and the view is excellent from both the porch and the pool area. Everyone enjoyed the extras, like a joggling board, carpet ball, and a hammock, on the large screened in porch. All the rooms were very nice. The house also included cribs, high chairs, and a play pen. The kitchen was a little small and the house keepers were not done cleaning when we arrived at the house at 4pm on Saturday. However, these were small problems. Overall, this is the best beach house the family has rented yet. It's a lovely property on a private beach. I would recommend the Flying Geese to any family wanting a great vacation rental.

The house was great. Very clean and comfortable. We had a few issues with the pool/hot tub, but it was still great and the kis enjoyed both the pool and the kiddie pool.
- Karen P. from Randolph , Posted: 04/23/2012
The Flying Geese Beach House is a fantanstic place to spend your vacation. It has all you can ask for in a rental beach house. Ocean Front, Pool and boat dock all situated in a secure location. The only problem I can think of is: One week is not long enough.
- Catherine Z. from West Mifflin, Posted: 09/19/2011
This is the second year we stayed in this house after staying for 20+ years in other rental condos and houses. This house is extraordinary and has everything a large family could possible need/want. It even stocks baby things that we need as our family
continues to grow. We're booked for next year already. Can't wait.
- Darlene M. , Posted: 09/01/2011
We have stayed in this house for the last 10 years. Entire family looks fotward to it each year.
- Joseph C. from Carmel, Posted: 08/01/2011
The fact that we have renewed for a 5th year says everything. All of our family enjoyed the stay very much. The staff, including the patient maintenance folks, were especially cheerful and helpful. Thanks! DNW
