18 of us, 8 being 8 years or younger!! Had a wonderful time. Convenient, only a few steps to the beach and a quiet and peaceful/safe location! Clean home provides all the amenities needed for large families including pool and grill. Did not know that we would only be able to use umbrellas on beach, which would have been helpful to know. Pool area could have been cleaner. Check-in was not very efficient, especially since all contracts had been e-signed previously.

We loved our first stay at a Garden City vacation house. Booking was super easy and the house was just as it had been described in written text and pictures. The check in and out process was quick and easy. The house was very clean and has both sheets and towels. We had tons of space and the kitchen had everything we needed in good working ordered. Initially we thought our coffee pot didn’t work and Garden City quickly came with a different pot but there was a second pot already there in the cabinet. The beach is super quiet there with only people from the surrounding houses there because of the state park close to the house. The only issue at the house was the pool quickly got leaves and tree stuff in it and it didn’t filter out very well. (maybe because of the shady trees in the back yard and some windy days) It might have helped if there had been a net on a pole there we could have used to take out the tree stuff. Also the pool is nice but there really isn’t a conversational pool, just an area at the end of the pool to sit. There was a pool person who came at the beginning of the week who was super nice and the pool was clean and clear at that point. We would certainly stay there again.

Jolly Mon was perfect for our 3 families and 2 dogs. The layout was great and the location was the best I have had in the area. Right across the street from a private access. It is close to everything but felt more remote. The only small recommendation I have is to replace the frying pans.
- Samantha Thompson S. , Posted: 06/29/2020
Check in and out process was simple and convenient. The property was as expected. We had plenty of room for our entire family. Plenty of items for serving purposes and an adequate amount of cookware. As to be expected with any vacation rental items are a bit worn out but are of use. We were set to have the pool serviced three time during our stay however they onLy came once. The location is super convenient and you get the amazing ocean views from the top balcony. We Like the fact trash service runs multiple times during the week.
- Joni S. from Frostburg, Posted: 08/12/2019
We have stayed in Jolly Mon for almost 10 years. Long Bay Estates is beautiful. The only complaint I have this year is that the hot tub is cold and dyed you blue and the increase required to hold properties for the following year is outrageous.
Jolly Mon II was perfect for our fairly large group. It was very clean, well appointed, and everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Features we liked best: easy beach access across the street, the quiet residential neighborhood,and especially the tree-shaded pool in back.
Overall, excellent experience and we would definitely rent again.
- Joey J. from Clemson, Posted: 07/18/2019
Jolly Mon II was actually a replacement property found for us by Garden City Realty after we encountered issues upon arrival at our original rental. Thanks all around to the GCR staff for their superb customer support--you literally saved our family vacation.

The jolly mon 2 was beautiful!!! The house was clean and had everything we needed as far as kitchen utensils and devices. We had plenty of sheets and towels which was nice!!! The playground was great and the outdoor shower was very convenient my only suggestion or maybe minor dislike was that the pool always has sand or leaves in it. Even after it was cleaned. The staff was so helpful when we had any questions or problem!!! we had a amazing time and would definitely rent from garden city agai !!!
- Karen W. from West Henrietta, Posted: 04/22/2019
We have been vacationing in Myrtle Beach for the past five years, and Garden City Realty is by far the BEST company to rent through in our experience. Our home was clean and had direct access to the ocean, and was very comfortable. We had a couple issues upon arrival, but Garden City took care of them as soon as possible. The oak trees surrounding the pool were a real challenge keeping the pool and surroundidng areas clear of debris.
- Kristina B. from Whitehouse, Posted: 10/01/2018
We really enjoyed our stay at the JollyMon II. The location was excellent and the private beach access was just steps away. House was clean and accommodated our large group nicely. Only concern was that there were a lot of things that did need attention. Almost all of the outdoor chairs that surrounded the pool were broken, light bulbs were out in multiple rooms, front room TV would not work, and just multiple small things should be corrected or fixed. Overall we would definitely stay there again!
- Anonymous from Fayetteville, Posted: 09/18/2018
Perfect location! We loved the pool! The house served us well, but for a family who eats in most of the time, the kitchen supplies were disappointing. We were very sad to evacuate after two days because of hurricane Florence.
- Anonymous from Walnut Cove, Posted: 09/11/2018
Was down with the family to enjoy mustang week like every year the house was great clean and beautiful. there was a slight issue with the bunk beds being very unstable in the kid's rooms so we had one sleep on the floor but they were fine with that. The pool area was great had shade for the midday sun the pool furniture needed to be replaced some was broken or looked like it was about to break. We all loved the house was straight across from the beach access we hope to stay in this house again next year.
- Joni S. from Frostburg, Posted: 08/20/2018
We have stayed at Jolly Mon II for several years now. We love this location but noticed that the house needs some attention. There are busted lights by the pool, several tiles missing around the pool, broken shelves that have been duct taped in the fridge, the TV in the living room has marks on the screen when it is first turned on, and the grass was knee high all week. I would also love to see a bigger trash can in the kitchen area.
- Cathy R. from Saint Paul, Posted: 06/19/2018
My family has been having reunions in Myrtle Beach for many years, and we love Long Bay Estates. It's a quiet neighborhood with an uncrowded beach. Jolly Monn has lots of space for eating in, an excellent pool and yard with playground, and is right across the street from the beach access. Perfect!
- Anonymous from Hickory, Posted: 09/18/2016
The property is in a wonderful location: close to everything needed, private, quiet, beach access superb, and the beach is a great beach for children. The pool was an excellent addition for our vacation; we'll never rent a house again without one. Living area and dining area were exceptional. Garden City realty was good to work with, and it was a plus having linens and towels provided. House was in pretty good repair with exception of a few things we mentioned at check out. Couple of the beds need new mattresses. It turned out to be a wonderful house for us to be in w/ 10 adults and 8 children, ages 8 mos to 12.
- George & Flo W. from Punxsutawney, Posted: 08/30/2016
Inside of house was clean. Could use updates such as living room furniture. One bed unusable because of broken box spring. Screened porch needed cleaned. The pool was not cleaned until early in the week. Several of the pool chairs broken. Maintenence was prompt when called.
- William W. from Staton Island, Posted: 08/15/2016
We stayed the last week of July. The weather was hot and beautiful. Not a drop of rain. Across the street was the beach and in the backyard the pool and hot tub. It was the ideal vacation!
Some maintenance problems that we had in the past with the dining chairs were addressed before all arrived. Maintenance reported were
handled quickly. New screened porch furniture, very nice.

- Anonymous from Mt. Nebo, Posted: 06/27/2016
Lots of little things that need fixed. Front door and some other door handles kept falling off. Pool had not been cleaned when we arrived on Saturday and was not cleaned until Thursday, even though it was supposed to be cleaned on Monday and Wednesday. Would stay there again.
The neighborhood is very quiet with almost no traffic. The beach access is right across the street through a small park.
One small complaint would be the lack of a first-floor bathroom except for the one shared by 2 bedrooms. That bathroom got a lot of traffic.
- Cathy R. from Saint Paul, Posted: 06/14/2016
We had a week-long, 4 generation family reunion, and this house was excellent. The dining room has two tables, to seat 16 people, plus more seating on the screen porch. Both the pool and backyard play area are shaded and beautiful. There was plenty of room for games and activities in the living room, porch, and deck.
The house could use a few little fixes (broken bins in the refrigerator/missing knob on kitchen cabinet), but nothing major. It also smelled a little musty at first, but aired out.
I would absolutely rent this house again!
- Denise A. from MOUNTAIN TOP, Posted: 01/04/2016
The house was perfect for a large family gathering -- we had 10 staying there and another 9 who were staying nearby. Plenty of open spaces for eating and hanging out. It is directly across the street from the ocean - no house blocking the view! The pool and hot tub were heated so we got to enjoy them all week as well.
- Justin S. from Crandall, Posted: 10/18/2015
We really enjoyed Jolly Mon II. We had more than enough room for everyone the place was comfortable and clean. The beach was just steps away we will definitely rent this property again on our next trip to Myrtle Beach.
- Barbara D. from Brunswick, Posted: 09/29/2015
Our vacation was very good. The house was fine and worked well for us but there were a few things that needed to be attended to. The main floor bathroom was dirty behind thE door and did not have a handle on the shower door inside the shower. It was broken off. Nothing to hold on to. We had a person in there that had double knee replacement. The drawers in the fridge were completely broken and impossible to use. Love seat on screened porch has broken leg in middle. Cannot sit in it. Needs replaced. Lighting in the dinning room so poor we could hardly see to eat dinner. Nothing to ruin our vacation but these things need addressed.

- Kila R. from Marengo, Posted: 09/07/2015
The house was in a great location. Nice house plenty of space for everyone. The house could have been cleaner. There was mold/ mildew in the showers, spider webs, fans had dust build up which was from more than just a week. The bath mats were gross looked like they have never been washed. Grass needed mowed when we got there and never got mowed the week we were there. The lights out back kept going out but management was quick to fix the issue. All minor things but all in all everyone had a great time and we would probably rent again.
has been a great place for our family. Sleeping arrangements could be better with additional bunk beds, after-all"we are at the beach." This is about our fifth year at Jolly Mom II and hope to come back again in 2016.

- William W. from Staton Island, Posted: 08/03/2015
The majority of the family arrived on 7/25 the rest on 7/28 due to some health issues. Everyone enjoyed the exceptional weather, the warm ocean and pool.
- Mary C. from Indianapolis, Posted: 07/18/2015
We had a great vacation and the house was located in a great area and very close to the beach (2 min. walk). While the house was nice, the refridge had several broken drawers inside and it made it hard store groceries. We had to call several times about the pool-it needed cleaning (pool guy hadn't shown up until Wed and we'd been there since Sat) and we couldn't use the pool at night since the flood lights weren't working. When I'd called the management said they were aware of the problem but it hadn't been fixed. Our kids were very disappointed that they weren't able to swim at night. We also had to call b/c we had ants and they were they when we arrived. They did send an exterminator out the day after we called. Some of the chairs in the dining area were not in very good condition. Overall, we enjoyed the house and loved the location.
- Margie B. from Conyers, Posted: 06/15/2015
Wonderful vacation with my family. It is advertised with 5.5 baths. We never found the .5 bath. It could use a shelf in some of the baths
- Sheila C. from Dearborn, Posted: 04/28/2015
We were very pleased with the home. The Jolly Mon II was a solid, quality home with a beautiful layout. The front porch had a nice view of the beach, although it is set in the second row of homes away from the water. The kitchen was well stocked with the necessities. We did run into some problems with a few things; but maintenance was prompt. I can say that Garden City Rental makes sure that their customer walks away happy and satisfied.
- Anonymous from Pittsburgh, Posted: 10/21/2014
We rented this same house two years ago and as expected, many rentals have taken a toll on the property. Great location but in need of some changes.

This was our 5th year at Jolly Mon II and we already have reservations for 2015. The screen porch, deck and swimming in the back yard are great for a shaded option from the full sun on the beach. The beach is just across the street - very little traffic to cross the street because the house is on a cul de sac - great for families with small children.
- Anonymous from Litive, Posted: 09/19/2013
House could have been cleaner, lots of webs in corners. Outside lighting is very poor. Jet pump for the Hot tub was very LOUD and the hot tub didn't get hot. LARGE BUGS
- Anonymous from Chippewal Falls, Posted: 09/01/2013
Overall our family vacation was very positive. We had 16 (7 adults / 9 children) and had plenty room. The kids really enjoyed the pool. Only a few minor negatives -- non-stick skillet should be replaced, a few minor maintenance issues,several TV remotes inoperative, palmetto water bugs, mattresses need updated. Would return if opportunity arises.

I loved the location of jolly mon 11. The only problem was the hot tub never got hot, not even warm. This was a big let down.
- Anonymous from Raleigh, Posted: 06/28/2013
Jolly Mon II + 3 families =good vacation! The pros: location, size, screened porch, plenty of hot water. The cons: not enough towel bars, no "hall-access" bathroom, broken whirlpool tiles (it doesn't get hot, barely warm), cobwebs in the corners. An outdoor broom would help keep from tracking so many leaves into the pool. Great place for adults & older kids. Having only 1 dwnstrs bathroom and the higher-than-usual dining rm chairs made it challenging for our group of young children.
- Robert & Brenda C. from Norcross, Posted: 06/17/2013
This is the 4th year we have rented Jolly Mon II. It is ideal for our family. Our grandkids love the pool and the new play area. Access to the beach is very convenient. Last year, we had some issues with the condition of the house; this year, every issue we had noted had been corrected. We look forward to our stay at Jolly Mon II next year!

- Jocelyn H. from Rochester, Posted: 05/06/2013
Our stay at Jolly Mon II was awesome. I thought it was in a great location and had plenty of rooms and space. The only complaint I have is with the pool and hot tub. They were both cool and never seemed to warm up. Also the trees in the back yard kept clogging up the pool filters with what was falling off them. The trees really ruin the back of the house areas. The decks were messy and the pool unclean. Also the neighbors dog kept defecating in the yard and they would not clean it up leaving my kids to be overly cautious when outside playing. The inside of the house and the amenities there in were spectacular.
- Anonymous from Barrie, Posted: 04/29/2013
Overall the stay was pleasant but found a couple things which were disappointing. The backyard pool area was quite untidy and filled with lots of loose leafs and foliage from trees. The yard itself was scattered with Kids toys and the back outside deck the same. Some **** roaches were seen throughtout the stay and that left a few of our 8 quests not really happy. The hottub has tiles missing as well. Upstairs air conditioning was not working but a call to Property Management had that fixed promptly. The location was great and worked well for us. Some of these comments were on the site last year and it is a bit disappointing that they still remain unattended.
- Mary S. from Louisville, Posted: 10/01/2012
Location and access to beach excellent. The positives about the house were well equipped, furniture in good shape. Bathrooms looked liked redone fairly recently. Negatives were something was wrong with jacuzzi, never got hot and tiles needed replacing. The furniture needed dusting in those hard to reach places. Unfortunately, an occasional roach appeared. However, if all the negatives were addressed this would a perfect place to vacation and even with negatives we enjoyed our stay very much.
- Lawrence J O. from Beverly, Posted: 09/24/2012
The house was 200 feet from the beach with a small memorial park in front that protects the view in this 2nd row location -- wonderful sunrise walks! Friendly neighbors!! The interior was very clean, loved the decor, but the airwick freshners were a little overpowering. Back yard area: great pool and hot-tub, clean, well-maintained (there area missing tiles in hot-tub). Backyard outside pool area had some debris. We would do it all over again.
- Anonymous from Fayetteville, Posted: 09/18/2012
House was great and location was perfect! Just a few issues that keep it from getting 5 stars all around - The downstairs had a musty smell in both bedrooms and the foyer, some outdoor furniture was broken, and the house is listed with a 1/2 bath - I am guessing this was the outdoor shower because there wasn't one in the house. We really enjoyed the house despite these issues and are considering renting again for next year.
- Joni S. from Frostburg, Posted: 08/20/2012
Very, very nice. Excellent location. Only concern was the hot tub tiles were coming off.
- David Y. from Staten Island, Posted: 08/20/2012
Just spent two weeks at the Jolly Mon II and had a great stay. You cannot beat the location and the private beach never gets crowded. Being in a private community provides a very relaxing setting and with 12 children in the house we were not worried about a lot of car traffic. The house definitely needs some TLC and a really good cleaning. Small additions such as a vaccuum, iron and some better lighting are suggestions but would not dissuade me from coming back as we already booked for next year. Overall it was a wonderful time.
- William W. from Staton Island, Posted: 08/17/2012
We have enjoyed Jolly Mon 2 very much. This is our home at the beach the grandkids love to say. The location, accomodations and property are excellent. We have once again booked next year but I missed out on the first week we had because I thought I had more time.The whole family was there, 20 in all, 12 grandkids and we had it for two weeks. If you want to stay in a great place with kids this is it. But don't wait to reserve at the end of your week!
- MARY S. from Morganton, Posted: 07/30/2012
There a few things that need to be fixed. Some of the lights on the outside are broken, the tiles in the hot tub need replacing, and quite a few roaches even in the house (large).

Yard area around pool and decks were messy. Lot of trash lying around. Lot of dust in house on pics and baseboards. Lighting was very dim in house. Hard to see to play games. But overall all was pretty good just thought these might need some attention.
- Ericka F. from Troy, Posted: 04/18/2012
This property has an excellent location right across from a Residents Only Beach:) The only downside about this property was the hot tub. It did not work, the tiles were coming off, and there was a large suction filter that sucked half my foot in and scared the Heart out of me! We never contacted the Rental Company abou the hot tub so we can't really blame them that it didn't work for our entire week. Oh, and no clothes hangers in any closet! That is all I can say bad about this property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay again. There was plenty of room for adults and kids alike!

Great Location, easy access to the beach. Wonderful pool!
corrected by the regular visit by the pool person. There was no ironing board which is almost a necessity in a house for a week stay. We realized that this is a time very late into the season but the house could have been a little cleaner. Lastly, the energy
saving bulbs in the dining area are for the birds. Overall though we really had a wonderful time and have reserved for next year. If you have a family it's a great vacation location.

The location was wonderful, the house is beautiful. The kids loved having the pool and went back n forth between the ocean n pool.

We love staying in Long Bay Estates!It was our 4th year in this neighborhood. And we really liked staying at the Jolly Mon II. This was our second year in this is truly a beautiful house and well maintained. The location to the beach and the beach access are a plus! The only thing that would make it better would be an additional refrigerator. With that many people staying in the house, it was needed.
- JILL T. from South Bend, Posted: 06/28/2011
This house is located in Long Bay Estates and has it's own private beach with plenty of space for families to spread out and enjoy the ocean. Myrtle Beach is very crowded and beaches can be packed so this was a huge plus. The house is very comfortable and while pool is small, the decks and backyard are great. Walk to beach a breeze. Our only complaints were: 1. 2 out of 3 porch rockers were broken. Maintenance came quickly and removed rockers but never replaced them-that left only 3 chairs so we could not enjoy lovely porches with ocean views as we would have liked. 2. Biggest problem came the last night we were there and the smoke alarms low battery signal went off at 3 AM in our room-replaced batteries and then at 5:30 another one went off in hall. Husband had to run to store to buy battery. Told managemnet when returning key and got apology, but they should have a better system. Would rent again.
- Lucy X. from Lexington, Posted: 06/10/2011
The pool is cleaned 3 times a week. There are a lot of trees around this pool which makes it difficult to keep clean everyday.
- Garden City Realty staff
Mostly positives...only downside was dirty pool bc pool boy only came on weekday, not weekend.
- Debbie B. from Parma, Posted: 05/30/2011
I would highly recommend this beach rental it is spacious, clean, and close to everything. There is a great ocean view and I can't wait to visit again.
