- William W. from Charlotte, Posted: 07/06/2020
The house was wonderful, especially if you appreciate the charm of an original 60's beach house. The decks on the front and beach side are very comfortable. The home has everything you could possibly need during your stay. We especially enjoyed the history of the home through the many paintings and pictures displayed. Overall, a great stay that already

This was by far an excellent home for us!! Home was directly oceanfront..just steps to the water..inside was stocked with all the household amenities. Absolutely a wonderful getaway.staff was very friendly and easy to deal with.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for a couples getaway or small family.
- Mary P. from Piedmont, Posted: 07/09/2019
Absolutely love this adorable pre-Hugo beach house. Warm, comfortable and very peaceful. Close enough to other locations but far enough from the hub bub of Myrtle Beach to be a true beach experience.
We love it so much we've already booked for next year.
As usual, the reality staff were courteous and very professional. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with.
- Victoria A. from Enfield, Posted: 06/26/2019
This was our 2nd time coming back to Madame Butterfly, we love the cottage, it's perfect for two people. We love the deck and the ocean being right there!
In addition to the house being perfect, the weather was also. We had non-stop sun every day with temperatures in the mid to upper 70’s. The Absolutely Perfect Vacation!!!!

We have stayed at Madame Butterfly three times. It is the perfect vacation home for two people. The staff at Garden City Realty are extremely helpful and professional. I left two personal chargers behind. The housekeeper notified the office immediately. Jessie left a message on our home phone at 9:51am. We were still at the Myrtle Beach Airport.
- Victoria A. from Enfield, Posted: 10/29/2018
I have to say this was the best vacation I have ever had! Madame Butterfly was outstanding, great location, great little house, very comfortable furniture and beds, I can't say enough good things about the place. We are looking forward to staying here again!

We love Madam Butterfly and come every year for the month of September when the weather is great (barring hurricanes) and the beach is not crowded. The size is perfect for the two of us and a guest or two. It is clean and stocked with paper and cleaning products,as well as any kitchen gagdet you might want. There are enough dishes, etc. to feed an army. .
- Jessica P. from Crooksville, Posted: 09/03/2018
Wonderful experience! However the washer broke and did not get fixed while we were staying there. Had to take loads of dirty laudry back home with us.
- Rick and Claudia P. from Williamsburg, Posted: 08/06/2018
Awesome! House super clean and had organic products for kitchen and bath.
- Susan A. from Darlington, Posted: 07/02/2018
I wish I was back there right now!
- Mary P. from Piedmont, Posted: 06/26/2018
This is our 12 year at Garden City and most if not all have been at the Madame. This pre-Hugo beach house is what the beach is all about. No high rise or sheet rock shell for me. Out of the door and into the sand. Wish there were more houses like this on the beach. Hope it stays in its present county so we can use our awning re our history of melanoma.
- Sheila C. from Lincolnton, Posted: 04/30/2018
We had the best time. Loved be able to sit on the deck and watch the waves. I'm a beach lover. There was a storm with height winds and rain that messed up one day but that just gave us a relaxing day.the only thing that could be better is the washer and dryer. The washer didnt spin the clothes dry enough, and the dryer took to long to dry the clothes.
- Anonymous from Davis, Posted: 10/09/2017
A cozy retreat for a couple or small family. Fully stocked with soaps, paper towels, toiled paper and other essentials. Kitchen is a joy to use and the back deck is perfect for surf and people watching. Stairs are a challenge for old folks but well worth the4effort.. We'll be back..
- Mary P. from Piedmont, Posted: 05/29/2017
Great week. Seafood, sunshine, swimming in the ocean. Wonderful helpful folks at Garden City Realty for the 11th year.
- Anonymous from Davis, Posted: 10/10/2016
This is our fourth year at Madam Butterfly. We enjoy the well equipped and charming interior and love spending time on the deck. This year the access from the stairs to the beach was almost flat so it was easy to get the the beach. The size is perfect for the two of us and the second bedroom gives us space for family and friends to visit.
- Ann G. from Charleston, Posted: 08/01/2016
Could not have expected what we received. This house has everything. We loved it!!! We will definitely be back!
- Ann Elizabeth O. from Darlington, Posted: 07/19/2016
We had a wonderful stay at Madame Butterfly again this year. As with every year, it was apparent that the owners strive to make yearly improvements to the property. We were especially appreciative of the new sofas and refrigerator.
- Ernest P. from Knoxville, Posted: 06/15/2016
Perfect,we have rented this house several times and we will be back next year.
- Louie W. from Florence, Posted: 06/08/2016
Wonderful week at the beach/nice accomadations.
- Mary P. from Piedmont, Posted: 05/11/2016
We love the Madame and enjoy staying in her. This well maintained pre-Hugo cottage is what staying at the beach is all about. Out of the door and straight into the sand.
- John V. from Winston Salem, Posted: 04/11/2016
The closeness to the sand and water was the best we've ever experienced. It was the perfect place for us. Hope to stay at Madame Butterfly again next year.
- Robert M. from Franklin, Posted: 11/20/2015
We really enjoyed stay. Butterfly house met our needs very well. My wife's Aunt had just lost the second of three sons. Did her so much good to get away, walk on the beach and spend time with her sister and neice.
- Henderson J. from Chattanooga, Posted: 10/06/2015
My wife and I had a wonderful time at Madame Butterfly it was neat and clean and the best furnished rental that we have rented.
- Jessica P. from Crooksville, Posted: 09/09/2015
This house is perfect for two people! We've been looking for a little place to enjoy and we found it! This is our 7th time to the beach and this experience was the best! My husband had good fishing days, you can walk to the pier, the neighbors are friendly and not crowded on the beach! We will be back next year and years after! Thank you!
- Sarah U. from Bluemont, Posted: 07/16/2015
Wonderful time at the Butterfly---Perfect Beach cottage. The best stocked house we have ever rented.
- Pamela D. from Moncks Corner, Posted: 07/13/2015
We have been coming to The Madame for over 10 years and can't wait until next time. My only recommendation concerns the dishwasher. It appears to be on its "last leg". Just thought you might want to know.
- Ann M. from Knoxville, Posted: 05/25/2015
We always have a great vacation experience at Madam Butterfly! We appreciate the improvements being made each year which makes each trip more enjoyable.
- Mary P. from Piedmont, Posted: 05/11/2015
Lovely. Ana did not hamper us. We were still able to get on the beach and swim. We only had rain 2 days. The house is what a beach stay is all about. Out the door and into the sand. Lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf each night. Best restaurant Lees Inlet Kitchen in Murrells Inlet. :)
- Anonymous from E. Falmouth, Posted: 05/04/2015
Madame Butterfly suits our needs completely. It was exactly as advertised, very clean and close to many restaurants and activities. We are two adults that go to Myrtle Beach/Garden City for the sun, beach and fishing. There were a couple of fish caught but plenty of sunshine and warm temps. Bed linens and towels are the only items we needed to provide. There are plenty of beach chairs and toys and boards for all ages. We eat most meals out but the kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need to cook and bake. When we return to Myrtle Beach, we will book well in advance as this house is very popular. We had to call Garden City Realty's maintenance department for a minor problem. The problem was fixed in less than an hour. In addition to being very professional, the people ar Garden City Realty are friendly, helpful and a pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend this house to family and friends....but only if they are not going away the same time we are. The airport being only 20 minutes away is a major plus.
- Pamela D. from Moncks Corner, Posted: 04/06/2015
Once again our week at the Madame Butterfly has refreshed us. We have been coming to her for over 10 years and will be returning in July. Already looking forward to our next visit.
- Robert B. from Greenwood, Posted: 11/03/2014
This is our third trip in a row in October. Wonderful time and weather overall was just perfect ! My wife and I are already looking forward to next year !
- Mary Lee T. from Davis, Posted: 10/23/2014
We are a retired couple who have been coming to Garden City in the fall for about 30 years. Our family is grown and busy elsewhere with their lives, so it's just us most of the time. We're not condo people. The Madam is just perfect for us - cozy, unpretentious and very comfortable. Access up the beach steps is relatively easy. Little touches like the soap and lotion dispensers in the kitchen and bathroom make it feel like visiting a friend rather than renting a cottage. The kitchen and pantry are generously equipped and the laundry equipment in the second bedroom closet is very convenient. It's fun to sit on the porch and watch the beach parade. We'll be back next year!
- Amanda W. from Greenwich, Posted: 09/01/2014
Our stay at Madame Butterfly was an unbelievable experience! The beach is in our backyard!! The house is stocked with pretty much anything you need. The beach was never overcrowded. This was the perfect spot to spend some quality time with my new husband. The ocean crashing in the background, the beautiful view from the porch, the night time strolls on the beach made this experience incredible! The house was perfect, very clean and well maintained. I can't wait to come back! Thank you!
- Trudi C. from Waxhaw, Posted: 08/18/2014
We have rented many houses in Garden City over the years and I have to say this was the most enjoyable house we have rented!! The beds were extremely comfortable and our family of 4 fit very nicely in this home. It was also VERY nice to have everything you could think of for a vacation already at the house re: plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards, grill, hand soap at every sink etc. Even a little room under the house to clean the catch of the day! This house is in a perfect location: steps from the sand and not too close or too far away from the pier. We loved it and will rent again!!!!!
- Robert O. from Darlington, Posted: 07/24/2014
We once again had a lovely week at Madame Butterfly! The place was spotless and had several updates from last year. We appreciate the attention the owners pay to this property - it is a very special place.
- Anonymous from Wedgefield, Posted: 07/14/2014
Great Week June 2014. Every Morning drank coffee on porch and watched pod of dolphins play. Beautiful view, cozy place.
- Ernest P. from Knoxville, Posted: 06/03/2014
Madame Butterfly was a wonderful home to stay in on the was like a home away from home.Everything a person could need right there.We've stayed here before and will stay here again.We love it!We were really grateful to have the extra bath room that had been added down under the house.I would recommend anyone visiting Garden City Should stay fact I've already recommended it to some of my friends.They've stayed and also loved it.
- Bonnie B. from Creston, Posted: 05/19/2014
This was by far the best place we have stayed in the 15 years we have been vacationing in Garden City. The house was well kept up and well stocked. It was perfect for our family of 4. We loved it and hope to visit again next year.
- Mary P. from Piedmont, Posted: 05/12/2014
Fabulous weather. Charming house with character. Out of the house and into the sand. This is what being at the beach is all about. So thankful this home is still there.
- Robert B. from Greenwood, Posted: 11/08/2013
We hope to rent it again next year -- wonderful trip!
- Anonymous from Warren, Posted: 09/16/2013
The deck needs some repair other than a couple of miner problems we was very pleased with everything.
- Sidney M. B. from New.Zion, Posted: 07/30/2013
HOUSE IS PERFECT FOR A SMALL FAMILY, TAKES ME BACK TO THE '50,S ERA.
- Pamela D. from Moncks Corner, Posted: 07/02/2013
Our family has been coming to the Madame Butterfly for 10 years. As we walk out of the door on the final day, we are already talking about the next visit. The house is large enough for us to sleep and yet small enough so we are together - eating, napping, reading, puzzles and even a little TV. Thanks to the owners for continuing to make this beach cottage available. We look forward to many years ahead.
- Diane G. from Rock Hill, Posted: 06/10/2013
We love the house!
- Melissa W. from Leoir, Posted: 06/10/2013
We loved how close to the beach this house was. It was a perfect size for our family of four. The house was very well stocked and had everything we could need. Hope to go back soon!
- Mary P. from Piedmont, Posted: 05/17/2013
We have rented this home many times and LOVE it. Out of the door and into the sand. This is not a houss. This is a precious, pre-Hugo beach home that is well preserved and there are too few of.
- Anonymous from E. Falmouth, Posted: 04/30/2013
From the moment of arrival to departure, we enjoyed every minute in Madame Butterfly. We checked it out before going to WalMart for what we would need for our stay. It turned out, we only needed bedding and towels, everything else was in the house: dish detergent, towels, sponges, paper towels, toilet tissue, laundry detergent, plastic bags... you name it, it was there. The only things I found 'missing' were a blow dryer and bag/chip clips!!! The convenience to the airport was one of the better parts of the vacation too. A dogfish and small blue fish were the only fish caught all week unfortunately, but it was low tide during the day. Highly recommend this home for vacation.

Outside front light needed. and a cement pad in back and front would lead to less sand being dragged into the house and on front and back steps.
- Douglas M. from Roanoke, Posted: 09/24/2012
This is a great little beach house. The home has plenty of books for any bad weather days and there are plenty of beach toys to play in the sand.
- Sidney M. B. from Mt.Zion, Posted: 09/10/2012
HOUSE REMINDS ME OF THE TIME I SPENT SUMMERS AT OUR HOUSE AT EDISTO ISLAND. QUAINT, AND NOT PRRETENTIOUS. ALTHOUGH HOUSE COULD USE A HALF BATH, IT WAS FINE FOR US AND OUR GRANDS. I CAN EASILY SEE WHY THIS HOUSE HAS A CONSTANT RENTAL HISTORY.

It was a perfect week in the perfect house for my family of four!
- Robert O. from Darlington, Posted: 07/10/2012
This was our second stay at Madame Butterfly. We love the location and the quaint, old beach house feel of the cottage. We have many family members who visit during our stay each year, and they can easily find this home.
- Pamela D. from Moncks Corner, Posted: 07/09/2012
We've been staying at The Madame since 2003. We hope it continues to be available for many years to come. It is perfect for a small family- great living space. Feels like a welcoming beachhouse instead of a resort.
- Diane G. from Rock Hill, Posted: 06/04/2012
My husband and I went to the beach for the first time in 30 years just the two of us. We celebrated our anniversary and had a wonderful time. You are steps from the beach with this house. The house is just the right size for two or a small family. We will definitely return. What a way to kick off the summer!
- Mary P. from Piedmont, Posted: 05/07/2012
Out of the house and straight into the sand. Perfect. Lulled to sleep by the sea each night. Watch dolphins from the deck. I prefer the quaint older small beach house to the fancy modern with pool overpriced houses being built now.
- Kim B. from Simpsonville , Posted: 11/15/2011
Perfect beachfront house for 2 people.
- Samantha B. from Deleware, Posted: 10/17/2011
My husband and I were celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary and absolutly loved madame butterfly! We have cruised to the Bahamas once, and this vacation was better than that! We had a great time!
