The house and views were absolutely amazing. Sitting on the front porch listening to the ocean in the morning was so peaceful. Then sitting on the deck and down by the inlet in the evening was pure calmness! We loved this house and will definitely be staying again.

Great place to stay! awesome being on the inlet with the kayaks and also have the ocean across the street. nice spacious place for 6 of us. Only thing we were lacking was another bath tub instead of showers but other than that completely perfect.

We stayed at the IR house for the week of July 4th. Everything was clean when we arrived and the kitchen had everything we needed....including a crock pot! The family room was very large and our granddaughters had plenty of room to practice and perform their dances. The sunset was perfect over the inlet every evening and the sunrise was beautiful from the front porch. The dock was easy to access for our boat and we had a grand time catching crabs.....plenty to eat. We loved the glass sunroom on the back. We had one small maintenance issue and it was taken care of very quickly. We have already reserved this house for next summer! It was so nice not to have to share bathrooms. The mattresses were the only down of the trip. Next year we will purchase egg crate toppers if they have not been upgraded. It was the perfect house for us, our children, and grandchildren.

IR house presents the perfect mix of modern amenities and beach house charm of when we were children. Property description was spot on. Would rent this again because it feels like home, our house.
We usually stay closer to the pier, but moved south in search of better fishing. We were not disappointed- plenty of crab, a flounder and a few others. We rented kayaks which we were able to use straight from the dock and the beach this far south is less crowded. Beach access is right across the street and very convenient. It was my in-laws' first time visiting, and she loved watching the inlet in the mornings. (Honestly, one of my favorite things, as well.) We had fantastic views of the inlet, and also an ok view of the ocean on the other side.
The kitchen was in great shape and well stocked, there were ceiling fans everywhere and room AC units in some areas, as well as overall AC. On a hot week, we were very comfortable.
The living room furniture was not super comfortable- low chairs and such. The beds were old and creaky, but we slept better than expected. The covered outdoor area (under the house) was fantastic, with plenty of tables in the shade.
I would absolutely stay here again. If you haven't been to Garden City before- I'd recommend a golf cart so you can have easy access to everything up by the pier (where all the excitement happens)and a life jacket for any little one who will be near the dock. It's deep and there is a current.
The only complaint I had was the lack of extra blankets. They provided plenty of towels and sheets. However, the futon came with sheets but no actual blanket. My dad in law needs to sleep in a recliner and we had trouble finding a blanket for him to use.
All in all, a great place with good fishing.

My extended family and I had a great time here. We had ages ranging from 4-79, and everyone loved it, though the stairs were hard on some of them. All living areas are on the upper level, as is typical of the area. The older teens loved the ground level rooms with easy access to the outdoors.

We enjoyed our visit at the IR House in Garden City. The house was comfortable and especially great for us because of its location on the creek and closeness to the beach. Beautiful sunsets from the back deck!

We have exciting news for you, IR House is not offering WiFi for the 2018 Rental Season.
- Garden City Realty staff
We loved the IR house, it had everything we needed to make our stay awesome. The only suggestions I could make to improve the property and our stay would be to add wifi and clear room in the kitchen to provide a pantry.

WiFi has been added for the 2018 Rental Season!
- Garden City Realty staff
WE enjoyed the house and had a good time. The only suggestion would to be to add WiFi. I didnt pay attention to that detail before I booked and probably would not have booked this unit due to that. We loved the location and other amenities.

The house was great, had everything anyone would want. Great location and beach access. Once the air conditining on Florida room was fixed,it made the back end of the house cooler--was hot before repair. Would recommend this house to anyone. Garden City Realty personel were all very helpful and polite.

We had a fabulous time. We like to cook, and the kitchen was well equipped. We will be back:)

We used the IR House and another house on the beach side (Seacamp) for our Family Reunion and 50th B-day Party. The IR House was well appointed, clean, and conveniently located. The boat dock was a great amenity! Both houses exceeded our expectations.

We loved staying at this house. It was the perfect size for my spouse and our 3 sons and their 3 friends. We loved the beach right across the street and the dock was very good too. All in All it was a great week for us..
Other than that...fabulous house!!!

The only problem was the airconditioning. The house probably needs a new unit for the Carolina room. Maybe put a window unit on both ends of room. We were hardly able to use that area and it is the best room in the house. The heat from that room did cause the kitchen and master bedroom to be very hot!
