There was plenty of room in the common area for all of us. We loved that each of the 5 bedrooms had their own bathrooms. I initially thought that the pool was too small, but in reality it was perfect. It also helped that we did not have to share it with anyone.
The beach was a short walk away as well as several stores and restaurants. It was very relaxing in the evenings as we enjoyed watching the sun set over the marshland out back.

The house was very comfortable, well appointed. Loved the pool, the views and proximity to the beach.

Porpoise Pad did not disappoint. The views were phenomenal. The home had everything you could want. The house was very well-kept and up-to-date. You could tell the owners were proud of their beach house. Although it was a duplex, you would have never known we had neighbors staying beside us, everything was very quiet. The pool was a good size for our group, it was my sons favorite spot :). The short walking distance to the beach and other amenities made it nice not to have to get into our cars and drive. Garden City Realty made the reservation process and checking in extremely easy. The ladies at the front desk went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed at the beach. You could tell with them that it was all about relationships. I highly recommend staying at Porpoise Pad if you have a larger family and booking with Garden City Realty.
Overall - I highly recommend this location - each bedroom had its own bathroom. Very nice plus! Note to any renters - showers are turned on by pulling down on the water nozzle. Took 3 adults to figure that out ;)
The agency was awesome too!
Beautiful master room and very close to the arcades, dining, and beach. Lots of parking across the street too. Hope to come back soon.

Loved side B of this home. It was great experience for the family. Recommend renting a golf cart like we did - made for a lot of fun. Bigger inside than you would expect for half of the home. Had everything we needed there - great storage space. Never figured out the pool light ;)

Clean & roomy, nice pool, all appliances worked, great location, can't beat it if you have kids with you.

This was our first visit to the area and we loved it. Close to Myrtle Beach but far enough away so we missed all of the tourist congestion. The house was great. Close to the beach and everything we needed but also had a private pool. Couldn't have asked for more. Only one negative - at night because of the tides the street flooded making it impassable by foot without wadding thru knee high water. Van interior even got wet. Talking to locals it was a regular occurrence even though management company tried to tell me it really was rare. 5 of the 7 nights it was a real issue at really pretty early in the evening. This issue really needs to be disclosed to perspective renters. Again, the house and area was really great so if you can handle the street flooding issue I'd highly recommend it.

We rented the house for my niece's Bachelorette weekend. We had 13 girls, and everyone slept comfortably. The location was wonderful, it was within two blocks of the pier and Sam's Corner. The house was clean, and I would certainly recommend it to a friend.

Loved this house. The pool was a great afternoon alternative to the beach. Easy walking distance to Garden City pier, etc. Each bedroom having its own bath and an additional half bath was great.

Appreciate the courtesy and kindness shown to us by Garden City Realty. Facility was a real pleasure and having my children here for Thanksgiving was something to truly be thankful for.

My family enjoyed staying at this home. The real estate office personnel were very nice, even our pool guy was nice. Only thing wrong - the steps to the house were dirty and our outside shower didn't work - but no big deal! We would stay there again!

We've been at the Porpoise Pad two years for a vacation between Christmas and New Years with our extended family. The house is clean, well located and easy to use. And we love the fact that it has a bathroom for every bedroom.

Lounge by the pool, walk to the beach or local watering holes, or make a very short drive into Surfside, Garden City, or Murrels Inlet. You can't go wrong. The house is very well maintained and the pool is in immaculate condition. The kitchen is well equipped and in good order. You will have no problem cooking for a maximum occupancy crowd. The beds are comfortable, and have plenty of pillows. The bathrooms are in good order and water pressure, and hot water is plentiful. There is more then ample room to kick back and relax indoors Theres plenty of parking, or room for games (bean bag toss or washers) under the house should inclement weather come in. A grill is provided, but it requires some work. This property is well furnished and well equiped, however the under cabinet ice maker wasn't functioning. Other then that, WOW, what a wonderfully maintained property. It shows that the owners take pride in their home. Thanks for a great, and relaxing time without breaking the bank.
