Returning Home Again
We first stayed at the Sea Gayle (now Our Three Suns) shortly after it was built post Hugo and our stays are too numerous to count. Instead of a young mother, I'm now the grandmother of the group. This lovely home holds so many wonderful memories for our family and after a 15 year absence it was like returning home again. The views of the beach/ocean are amazing and the pool is a wonderful addition. We had a great family vacation!

We had a wonderful week. The house is large and had enough space for everyone to spread out. The views are breath taking. We enjoyed the pool everyday. Will definetly be back next year!

Great house! Nicely decorated, furniture and beds comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with table settings, flatware and pots and pans. Only one small suggestion that is important to cooks, and that is to have the chopping and paring knives sharpened and provide a better spatula. Overall, we were all very pleased with the accomadations!

Thank you for an absolutely perfect week with our kids and our grandkids. We cook alot, and we found your kitchen to be loaded with every gadget, pots, bowls and dishes we'd need. The house was immaculate when we arrived, so we tipped our housekeeper and the grandbabies wrote her a sweet note of thanks. The heated pool was necessary due to the cold ocean temp, so it was a wonderful escape from the sand, in the afternoon. We'd book again next year but we think we'll have more of our kids join us so there won't be enough space, which we're all sad about. Anyone wanting the perfect accomodations should book this house now!
The house was very clean. The kitchen had everything you would need to make a meal. The house was decorated nicely. The only downside was the quality of the sheets provided.
The pool was a big hit for our four kids! The adults enjoyed it too. The patio furniture at Our Three Sons is second to none. The views of the ocean are breathe taking.
Garden City has a very small downtown area near the pier. The house is within driving distance of many stores and restaurants. Duck Donuts is a must!
If you enjoy the beach but do not want to be in the hustle and bustle of the main drag, this is the house for you. We would love to come back in the future!

The house is located on the residential side of the pier where beach traffic is minimal. Great for a quiet beach vacation or socially distanced beach activity.

This was our third year at OurThreeSuns and we have reserved it again for next year. It is so well located on the beach and fits our family perfectly. Even with Covid, this week worked out well and we were able to safely distance. The pool was an unexpected addition this year that we had not planned for ($). Everything was in working order.

Overall we enjoyed the property. The only complaint I have is the outside lighting. The front stairwell is not lite very well and there is no light for the pool area.

We really enjoyed this vacation home - right on the beach, spacious with 5 bedrooms and plenty of room to socialize, cook ... just a great house! Garden City Realty did a great job handling our late arrival and were friendly and professional. Overall, a very satisfying vacation experience.

I loved that we could put our EZup canopy on the beach and be protected from the sun. I loved that fireworks was set off every night outside our window. It was beautiful and fun to watch and hear all the ooohs and ahhhs! The kitchen was well stocked with a great mixer! When I asked if a blender is part of the rental agreement. It was delivered within the hr.!! Fantastic customer service.

It was wonderful!! Then place was gorgeous, loved the location, and the porch overlooking the ocean was the best for the older folks to congregate and talk!! The place was amazing and well kept!!
- Kristen R. from Charlotte, Posted: 09/10/2018
Everything about this rental experience was great! It was very easy to search online, reserve online, pay online. Check in was pleasant and smooth. The house was clean and well maintained!

We enjoyed the beach and the water. We were very glad that we could put up a canopy. We had a couple of days when it rained but we just found something else to do. Great time with family!!

Our vacation staying at Hakuna matata was just what the name of the beach house means, we hado "no worries" for our entire vacation. We really enjoyed the location of hakuna matata on the beach and enjoyed the all of the space that hakuna matata offers.
had good customer service. I would recommend
this property to a friend or relative. The pier
was a lot of fun. Sara J's is a great place to eat.

We are creatures of habit and for years have gone to another vacation spot in North Carolina, but this year presented us with the opportunity to travel a little farther south! We chose Garden City Beach when a friend said if you are going to Myrtle, this is the place to go. Hakuna Matata was perfect for us, plenty of room, clean, beautiful view from the rocking chairs on the porch. I wouldn't have changed a thing!
- Joshua P. from Mooresville, Posted: 12/03/2015
This home is so unique, so nicely furnished and so well maintained. We really enjoy our Holidays there. Hope to be able to make staying at Hakuna Matata a Tradition!
Hakuna Matata was comfortable - the kitchen was spacious and had all the essentials for cooking. There were several bedrooms - the beds were okay and bathrooms met our needs. The house/environment is well suited for families with young children. Lots of toys, bunk beds, etc and there is a ramp for easy access to the beach.
We had a great week and will definitely return! Thank you!

We had a fabulous week in Garden City Beach - the weather was perfect for walking along the surf, shelling, checking out the pier, watching the dolphins and fisherman from 'the back porch' and enjoying a 'marsh walk' and dinner(s) at nearby Murrell's Inlet. We also had a day of shopping at the Outlet Mall and an evening at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach~25 minutes away.

We had five high school friends for a reunion. We were all more than pleased with the beach house. Great location and a wonderful porch.
- Carlos C. from Douglasville, Posted: 09/07/2015
From the moment we arrived at the house we knew we were going to have a wonderful week of fun and relaxation. The house was clean and well furnished and included more than enough dishes, cookware and utensils for our large crowd of 12. At the time of our stay there were 5 boogie boards, 5 usable beach chairs, several inflatable floats, and lots of buckets, shovels and such to keep the little ones happy. A small charcoal grill was on the deck for our burgers and shrimp cookout. We really enjoyed the screened in porch to watch the amazing sunrises while drinking our coffee and watching the Dolphins swim by. The only problem we encountered was with the bedding. The only comfortable bed was the king size bed. The other mattresses were very uncomfortable. We rate the house as 5 star and the bedding as 2 star.

Wonderful location; great house.

Beautiful home with a nice front deck (on ocean side), very close to beach, excellent screened in porch (great for morning coffee!!!) Rooms were clean, bathrooms clean. Very nice!!!
- Joshua P. from Mooresville, Posted: 12/03/2014
This house was so well maintained, so well decorated, and so well laid out. We appreciated all the extra touches. Like the linen package, the beach toys, and awesome TVs, right on down to a book with instructions for everything. We loved the porch. Appreciate you letting us enjoy the holiday at your home, and hope to be able to stay there again next year.

For the most part, we had an enjoyable time. However there was only one oceanfront bedroom. The rest of the bedrooms were ocean view which meant looking out a window. We would have preferred more oceanfront bedrooms. The kitchen was large and the island was a plus. It was nice to be able to have more than one person working in the kitchen at the same time. All appliances worked very well. We liked the wood floor much better than carpet or tile on the first floor. House was clean but the furniture was stained in the living room area. The picnic table on the deck was unusable as the seat on one side was broken in half. (Realty company removed the broken seat.) The screened in porch was really great. We spent a lot of time out there eating meals, playing games and reading even when it was raining. The view was fantastic and it was only a short walk to the beach. This was our first experience with the linen package and it was great. The house had Wi-Fi and it worked well. We went shopping at Tanger's outlets. We had dinner one night at Toscano's Italian restaurant in Myrtle Beach. It was quite good. Even though it stormed quite a bit we still had a wonderful week.

Wonderful vacation for family and friends at Hakuna Matata. We vacationed August 30- September 6. The house is lovely. Kitchen is well stocked with large items so cooking for a large group is made easier. There are an abundance of beach toys, skim boards and beach chairs for your use as well as inside toys and DVD's for the kids.
- Stacy D. from Springfield, Posted: 08/25/2014
Our family group of 9 enjoyed the beach and Hakuna Matata. Other than a few cleaning issues, the home was excellent for our needs.
THIS WAS THE 1ST TIME THAT I HAD RENTED A BEACH HOUSE AND IT WAS THE BEST THING THAT I COULD HAVE DONE WAS TO STAY AT THE HAKUNA MATATA FOR CHRISTMAS 2013. MY BABY SISTER CAME HOME FROM SANTA MONICA FOR THE 1ST TIME IN 8 YEARS WITH HER 4 CHILDREN AND HUSBAND. MY MOM HAD HER 3 GIRLS AND 5 GRANDKIDS AND SON IN LAW UNDER ONE ROOF FOR SANTA CLAUSE AND WE HOSTED MOMS SIDE OF THE FAMILY CHRISTMAS DAY DINNER. THERE WERE SO MANY DISHES THERE AND THAT WAS GREAT. THE PLACE HAD SO MUCH ROOM THAT NO ONE GOT UNDER FOOT. I COOKED AT THE ISLAND BAR AND WATCHED THE WAVES HIT THE BEACH AND YOU COULD HEAR THE OCEAN TOO. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR OPENING YOUR HOME UP FOR OTHERS TO ENJOY AS WELL. THE ATMOSPHERE OF YOUR PLACE IS CALM, PEACEFULLY AND RELAXING WHEN YOU WALK IN THE DOOR. IT WAS LIKE THE PLACE WAS MADE FOR US FOR THAT WEEK. THANK YOU AGAIN. ANN GASKINS

We all miss the Hakuna Matata!!! This was our second year to enjoy your beautiful accomadations and it could not have been better. That screened in porch facing the ocean with those rocking chairs-----wish we were there right now! Thank you again for another week of wonderful family memories.

wonderful ocean view, very well stocked house
- Penny P. from Auburn, Posted: 05/30/2013
There were 5 couples that stayed there the week of May 18, 2013. The house was surprisingly amazing with new floors and deck. The furniture even looked new. All the sleeping rooms were comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. The weather was great and we went down to the beach every day. We were close enough to a grocery store and far enough away from hectic traffic and activity. If I had to complain about anything, it would just be that some of the sheets we were given did not fit the beds....too small.....and we had to work around that. Other than that.....this was an amazing family vacation!

Screen porch and beach are great. Suggestions: add a grill; add games for kids (inside/outside); new beach chairs; more books.
- Sean D. from Woodstock, Posted: 09/04/2012
Everything was great. A few minor things but overall a nice place to stay for a family.

Our stay was great!!!! It was so relaxing and had everything we needed. The porch was nice to sit and rock all during the day and at night. The pictures on the website does not do the house is much better!!!! We hope to return next year.
- Daniel O. from Alliance, Posted: 07/23/2012
Priceless memories for our entire family! Hakuna Matata was heaven and has began a tradition for our family. Can't wait till next year.
- David S. from Sparks, Posted: 07/05/2012
Everything went great from a 30 minute early check in with no hassle to a great location that was kept up and clean. Especially loved the two outdoor showers under the house. The only negative and i'm reaching here was the small toilets. They need to be upgraded. Not a big deal but the house was painted a salmon color and didn't match the picture so that threw us a little curve ball when we were trying to find it. I was very happy with this house and if I ever rent in Garden City again I would try to get this house.
- Karen L. from Avon, Posted: 04/16/2012
We loved the house and the location being just 1 mile S of the pier. The beach was not crowded and the views from the back deck were the best ever. The layout was great for us - a family of four, and two sets of grandparents! Thank you.
