We often vacation on Kiawah and stay in very luxurious homes, none of which match the shabby chic charm of Murray’s Inlet Shack. Murray’s is charming, clean and in good shape. The beds were comfortable and the newly renovated bathrooms were lovely. We love the charm of the SC coast!

Our stay was wonderful! Have placed a deposit for next year.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As there were not many choices available, we were able to secure this home due to a cancelation. It turned out that this property is exactly what we were looking for and more. The distance from the beach and access to the inlet were awesome. The dock area was a delight and was used heavily by out typically anti-beach fishermen! The house, although periodic issues with the AC, was absolutely perfect!!! We were very happy with out stay and the attention the owner's have to detail. Mr. Murray even stopped in to make sure out stay was good. Hats off to the owners of this property and the people at Garden City Realty! I would recommend another refrigerator on the property in the downstairs area to help with ice and additional refreshments.

We’ve stayed in several houses over the years but Murray’s inlet shack was by far the best one yet! It had absolutely everything you could need from indoor and outdoor games to crab traps and fishing poles. Even beach chairs and a canopy for the beach. My only wish is that it had a screened in porch because it rained for several days but what an amazing house.
- Dennis H. from Bristol, Posted: 10/12/2020
We had a great time , this was our second time at the Shack and because of our growing family, it may be the last time we can fit. However it will be a long time before we forget the great times of the UNO game that lasted forever or three hours ending over spilt chocolate milk and the Shack being filled with laughter, again thanks to the Murrays and staff at Garden City Realty for a great house to stay in.

We love the inlet views at Garden City and this home provided that and so much more. It was a great space for all our grands with the pool, all the underneath space with games and the yard! And if you need the beach, it was a quick walk directly across the street.
Murray’s was just as described and very well stocked. My grandchildren loved the sun room in back. The TVs were not turned on all week. We just cooked and talked and laughed and fished and swam and said our prayers and went to sleep. It was a wonderful trip.
- Suzy P. from Green Mountain, Posted: 07/27/2020
We loved the house and the pool. My sons loved fishing off the dock and my daughters and daughters-in-law loved the proximity to the beach. The lot next door was having a new house built and the workers were there at 7 am to begin outside so there was lots of beeping and trucks and equipment in and out until 5:30 pm. But my sons work like that for a living and so we understood and allowed them to park as needed in the driveway or on the sidewalk in front of the house. We were glad to see life going on normally!

Lots and lots of fun love this place.
- Regina S. from Conway, Posted: 07/02/2020
Location, location, location! Murray’s Inlet Shack was perfect for our stay the first week in June, 2020. This house was incredibly stocked with fun things- including (but not limited to) ping pong, corn hole, crochet, easy access to the beach complete with a wagon for chairs and umbrella! So many special touches from owners. Beautifully decorated and comfortable!!

Everything about our stay was perfect. The house location is perfect-it is on a canal and across the street from a beach access. There was a beach access across the street, so we would load our cooler and wagon and take the short walk across the street. The beach area was never crowded. In the evenings we would enjoy a cold beverage while sitting on the covered dock watching boats pass by in the canal. The swimming pool was an added bonus. We appreciated that it was cleaned a few times during our stay. The inside of the house has been updated and the kitchen has any tool or appliance you could possibly need. We received a very quick response with a small issue we had during our stay. I would highly recommend staying at this home.
- Barbara R. from Wadesboro, Posted: 10/09/2019
Wonderful place to stay. Our family enjoys fishing,the pool,sitting on the dock at night and so much more. It's just across the street from the beach.The house was spotless and so pretty. The owners are so nice as well as the realty company. We love Murrys Inlet Shack and would recommend it to anyone.
- Anonymous from Moore, Posted: 10/07/2019
A very nice location for fishing, private swimming and sunning. Very relaxing location.
- Dennis H. from Bristol, Posted: 06/27/2019
Good times at the beach at the pool sitting at shack (dock) and watching the Murder Channel. Macie was the 21 champion at pool ball, Maxwell was the cereal killer up to six bowls a day. Maleah, Matilda and Brick were the comedians of a great trip. We have booked this house again next year.
- Amanda W. from Bridgeport, Posted: 04/22/2019
Lovely home and it was our 2nd time at this property. Loved the renovations to the interior. Our family enjoyed the outdoor space! Inlet and dock in the backyard which we took full advantage of by renting a boat for the week from Beach House Boat Rentals. Ocean just across the street. Great mix for our whole crew! Home owner even stopped by to greet us as we arrived. We will be back!
- Dianne T. from Charlotte, Posted: 08/20/2018
This home was really comfortable.Nice furniture, eclectically decorated. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils. Location was great. Loved the dock on the inlet. Grandkids loved the pool. Just across the street from the ocean. My grandson said this was the best beach house ever!
- Natisha S. from Volant, Posted: 08/18/2018
House was meticulously maintained. Old beach cottage feel with modern amenities. Perfect location on inlet with 2 beach access points across the street. Definitely on the short list for subsequent rental.

Loved this house. Loved that we had a pool, dock, and right across from the beach. The layout was also nice.
- Megan G. from Cleveland, Posted: 08/14/2017
Our family has been staying in Garden City for over 30yrs. We have always stayed ocean front in some of the grandest fanciest homes. This year we split up due to how large our family had gotten and the other half of us stayed separate at Murray's! Let me tell you this is my absolute favorite home out of any we had ever stayed at. The memories that we made are some I will never forget. If you want memories and the time of your life I highly recommend this property. We went shrimping off the dock, fishing, threw crab boxes out ect. Danced the night away in the dock and walked a few feet away to build sand castles on the beach. We want so badly to come back next year but our family will be expanding again. What a fabulous home with owners who truly care about this home. Thank you so much for such an amazing place.
- Donna B. from Hemingway, Posted: 07/25/2017
Very good. Weather was much better end of week. Kids loved the pool.
It is an awesome place.
- Cathleen S. from DeRuyter, Posted: 06/11/2017
The stay was very comfortable and relaxing.
- Cheryl H. from Gilbertsville, Posted: 08/29/2016
Everything was as it appeared online and then some! Very private! Owners left a rum cake and t-shirt welcome gift, which was a nice touch. We have stayed at beach homes for years and never saw such a well appointed kitchen(serving dishes, wine glasses, griddle, crockpot, spices, the list goes on.) The dock is unbelievable- fridge, sound system, lights, very comfortable and many chairs. More than enough seating at pool, dining table, porch, etc. We put a deposit down for next year, the first time we have done so. Only suggestion would be to put a window ac unit in downstairs bedroom, as it wasn't as cool as the rest of the house.
- Donna B. from Hemingway, Posted: 08/08/2016
It was great. Really enjoyed the luxury of having the pool for the kids without all the sand. Kids had a blast (ranged in age from 4 years old to 13 years old). And, of course, they all loved the opportunity to drown some bait in the creek. Will have new baby in 2017 so we made was reservation for the same week.
- Joe S. from Denver, Posted: 07/11/2016
Our experience was very good. The owners genuinely care about their customers. The rum cake and tee shirt was a nice touch
- Anonymous from Gastonia, Posted: 08/31/2015
Had a great time. Love the house and all the amenities. We have already reserved for next year!

Our week at Murrays Inlet Shack was everything we expected...and more. The house is perfectly situated..far enough from the bustle of Sams Corner yet close enough that we could be across the causeway in just minutes. We have stayed at the Shack numerous times and once again the house was very comfortable. We appreciate having the pool and boat dock since we spend so much time outdoors and the beach is just a few steps away. Murrays is simply the best of the best!
The house and kitchen was very well equipped.
LOVED the dock!!! We called it the PARTY dock. In the evening, the family was either in the house playing games or on the PARTY dock, listening to music and 'chatting it up'.
SO looking forward to next year!!!!
- Wanda M. from Lyman, Posted: 07/13/2015
I will definitely book another week at Murray's Inlet Shack. PERFECT for an extended family. We had 3 sisters, a grandmother, and everyone's family. There was something for everyone.
- Susan R. from Sewell, Posted: 09/01/2014
I have wanted to stay at Murray's for four years now and this year I got my wish. We were definitely not disappointed! This home was beautiful with many personal touches. The kitchen is very well stocked! The pool and fishing dock were incredible too.
- Melinda B. from Union, Posted: 08/20/2014
This house was everything you could ask for and more! The house is beautiful inside and out. The pool is huge! The dock was our favorite place to hang out and fish. We will definitely be back!!!

This is our second year staying at Murray's Inlet Shack and we loved it. We have already reserved the house for next year and are counting the weeks! The only thing wrong was that I could only find one outdoor receptical for my ice cream maker.
- Laurie D. from Woodbridge, Posted: 08/13/2014
Stayed in the Shack before (2009) the owners have set up a great vacation home on the inlet with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing week at the beach. We enjoyed a sunset party every night, and then cooked local fresh fish, steaks, scallops and even gator on the outdoor gas grill. Just cross the street and you are on the beach. Kitchen is well stocked and even provides unique serving pieces for a total beach themed week. Property was one of the cleanest and best kept homes we have stayed at in Garden City. As Arnold would say "I'll be back"
- Joe S. from Denver, Posted: 07/22/2014
Awesome. Eventhough we don't drink alcohol, the owners gift of a bottle of wine and cooler of beer was a very nice touch. The cake was also excellent. We have rebooked for the week of July 4th.
- TODD C. from LAKE CITY, Posted: 07/21/2014
My family and I have rented Murrays Inlet Shack for several years and have always been pleased and impressed with the house. It is all anyone could ask for and more.
- Anonymous from Lake City, Posted: 06/09/2014
We were very pleased with the whole process. We were able to narrow down rental possibilities on-line and then we visited in person to make our final choice. Our vacation could not have been more pleasant. The house and grounds had everything we needed and was comfortable and beautiful. Quite enjoyable!!
- Susan K. from Lebanon, Posted: 10/07/2013
We had an absolutely wonderful week - great weather - perfect location. Just cross the street and walk past one home and you are on a beautiful beach. The swimming pool is very nice, and having the boat dock was great. We rented a boat for 3 days asnd did a log of fishing, crabbing, and just cruising. One evening we took the boat arcoss the inlet to the Marsh Walk restaurants for dinner. After dinner the views of the sunset and moon rising were spectacular on the cruise back to our 'particular harbour,' The only real issue was sharing a very small, dated, bathroom for the two larger bedrooms.
- Robert & Susan R. from Liberty Township, Posted: 08/26/2013
The place was all we could want. It was clean and had all we needed to just sit back and enjoy. The owners went out of there way to make sure every thing you needed was there and they showed there pride in the place and wanted the people to enjoy there stay. The location and the dock were perfect. We will be back.
- Anonymous from Gastonia, Posted: 08/22/2013
We are planning to use this as our vacation spot for the next several years.
- James R. from Edinburg, Posted: 08/16/2013
beautiful house, well equipped, short walk across street to beach, and the pool!!!!!!!!!!!!!! we had a wonderful week.
- TODD C. from LAKE CITY, Posted: 07/23/2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Murrays Inlet Shack. The house is in an ideal location because we take a boat with us and make use of the dock on the inlet. The pool is a nice feature. We were far enough from Sams Corner that we had no problem with traffic. The house is very comfortable and well furnished. We look forward to returning nest year.

So glad we were able to stay at "The Shack" hope to be back sooner than later!! Very enjoyable property and all the amenities (and then some)of home!
- Sallie H. from Prosperity, Posted: 09/14/2011
Beautifully landscaped yard with swimming pool, room for games and the cutest dock on the inlet. Loved the "Jimmy Buffet" theme! Plenty of yard furniture included as well as everything in the kitchen you would ever need.
- TODD C. from LAKE CITY, Posted: 08/08/2011
We were once again impressed by the house and all of the amenities that we enjoyed while staying at Murray's Inlet Shack. It is always one off the highlights of our year.
- Shirley T. , Posted: 06/13/2011
We had a wonderful week at Murray's Inlet Shack. You have the best of everything there; straight across from the beach, pool, and an AWESOME dock for beautiful sunsets and fishing! It was a wonderful week for our family vacation and look forward to many returns back to Murray's Inlet Shack!!
